Spoilers from the Upcoming Seasons of ‘The Originals’ and ‘The Vampire Diaries’

Less than two weeks left in our countdown to the series premiere of The Originals, but… is it wrong to already be looking forward to the second episode? In reality, we know what happens in the first ep (since it pretty much aired during last season of The Vampire Diaries anyway), so we might as well get a head start on the second, "House of the Rising Son."

According to Entertainment Weekly, the show will flash back to the 1800s after Rebekah has a run-in with Marcel and "is reminded of all the anger and disappointment Klaus has caused her throughout the years."

As for the spin-off's predecessor, TVD, its second show of the fifth season sounds delectable as well. The CW's official synopsis reveals, "Without telling Elena that Stefan is missing, Damon turns to Sheriff Forbes for help finding his brother. Elena and Caroline try to find out who is covering up a campus murder, and a fellow Whitmore student named Jesse gives Elena some intriguing information about Professor Wes Maxfield. While Jeremy struggles to return to his old life, he continues to be the only person who can see and talk to Bonnie, but he can't convince her that it's time to let the others know that she sacrificed her own life for his. After learning that Silas is searching for Katherine, Damon asks Matt and Jeremy to keep her out of sight, but the situation quickly spirals out of control. Finally, Nadia uses violence to make a point about her own agenda." Wowowow, so much information to process!

The fifth season of The Vampire Diaries and the series premiere of The Originals both air on October 3. Are you ready to sink your teeth into 'em? Sound off in the comments below, or on our Vampire Diaries message board!
