After next week’s episode of The Originals, “Bloodletting,” we really didn’t have any more information about where The Originals plotline would take us… til now. Check out the title and synopsis for The Originals season 1, episode 8.

New episode information has seemed a long time coming for The Originals as the well had seemingly dried up information-wise after “Bloodletting,” but fear not! The CW has released the title and synopsis for The Originals season 1, episode 8, and it sounds like it’s worth the wait.

The title for The Originals season 1, episode 8 is: “The River in Reverse”

The synopsis for the episode reads as follows:

THE FIRST BATTLE OF THE WAR — Rebekah (Claire Holt), facing a difficult decision, turns to Father Kieran (guest star Todd Stashwick) for guidance. Elijah (Daniel Gillies) struggles with the consequences of a recent fallout with Klaus (Joseph Morgan). Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) remains by his side but is soon drawn away by a mysterious figure who sheds some light on her past. Meanwhile, a frustrated Cami (Leah Pipes) struggles to make sense of a cryptic message she’s come across. Finally, when an unsuspecting Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) uncovers some upsetting information involving Klaus, a confrontation ends in a surprising twist. Jesse Warn directed the episode written by Declan de Barra and Julie Plec (#108).

It seems that Hayley has chosen Elijah after some sort of rift has driven a wedge between the Original brothers, so now we are left to wonder why? Also, with Rebekah running to Father Kieran for help, we are curious as to what his role will be in the future of The Originals. Do you think he could be around for a while?

What do you think of the plot for ‘The River in Reverse’?
