The Originals Season 2 Spoilers: Exploring Esther and Mikael’s Relationship.
We know about the hell Esther and Mikael put their children through. Also the reason they decided to turn them into vampires. What we don’t know is the state of their relationship, both then and now. Does Mikael resent her as he does Niklaus? Why did she punish her child with a curse? Questions that EP Julie Plec gave us a hint to with Ask Ausiello.
Question: I don’t care about Hayley and Elijah on The Originals. I want to know about Mikael and Esther! What’s that crazy couple up to in Season 2? —Ashleigh
Ausiello: Funny you should refer to them as a couple, Ashleigh, as their relationship is going to be explored big-time in the coming season. “We know about their marriage, and we know that they made their kids into vampires, but do they like each other?” executive producer Julie Plec muses. “Do they hate each other? We’re having so much fun writing the history of Esther and Mikael right now.” Sounds like their future is just as mysterious as their past.

I can’t wait for this history. The apple never falls too far from the tree. So Mikael and Esther will bring some much-needed sass back to this show. The Season 1 finale being emotion and heartfelt. It will be good to see these two villains back in action. Even if it’s a bit strange at first with Esther being in someone else’s body. Julie Plec also confirmed that Alice Evans (Esther) will make an appearance in a flashback at least.
