Is it safe to say that everyone should watch out for Marcel on The Originals next season?
On Friday, TV Line posted an interview with executive producer Michael Narducci who dished on that crazy finale and what it means for the fourth season. Even though he may be showing his angry and powerful side, it doesn't seem too likely that he's going to be the main villain or anything.
"Marcel is furious that Davina was so callously put to the side in favor of 'Always and Forever,' and when he confronted the Mikaelsons about it, they killed him," Narducci explained. "And if he hadn't taken that serum, he'd just be dead, so he has a perfectly valid point. It's also important to note that Marcel was the King of New Orleans prior to the beginning of the series, and he ruled over a very factious city."
Marcel might be the next one in charge, but the producer made it clear that he's still who he is.
"Marcel is going to find himself as the most powerful creature in all the land; the werewolves are still pretty much a non-factor, the humans are down and scared, and the witches have lost their connection to the ancestors," Narducci said. "It's going to be a very different landscape, but it's still Marcel Gerard. He's done what he's done, and now he'll have to figure out how to live with himself and rule New Orleans."
Narducci then opened up to the idea of a time jump taking place in the next season. This seems like a great plan given what everyone's been dealing with.
"This is a definitive loss on the part of the Mikaelsons," he said. "The prophecy predicted they would fall, and they fell. There's no easy way out of the situation they're in."
The Originals Season 4 premieres this fall on The CW.
