the night desk's curator insight, July 25, 2014 2:30 PM

'The Originals'  executive producer talked about Klaus and Hayley in a recent interview with tv guide.  He says Klaus will return to the destructive, manipulative monster he once was to payback those witches whom turned against him, and drove his sweet baby from the town.  Hayley on the other hand, will spend some time licking her wounds, and coming to grips with the loss of her child.  Although before the season ends, Hayley too will be back to her old ways and leave a familiar path of destruction in her wake.  One thing you can be sure of, sooner or later these two will resort back to the terrible people they really are... I guess that's why they are so fun to watch.  What character are you looking forward to seeing in season 2?

Vampires (Vrykolakas) and crosses | OrthoCuban

Vampires (Vrykolakas) and crosses | OrthoCuban | For Lovers of Paranormal Romance | Scoop.it

This is a post for those who watch vampire movies and/or read vampire books. Have you ever wondered why it is that, in the old tales, vampires (vrykolakas) react to Christian symbols?

 

Like the mark of Cain, vampires received the mark of Judas. Because they betrayed the Cross, because they betrayed the True Light, because they used wood soaked with the blood of Christ, because they used the blood of the Betrayer, they cannot stand the symbols of Christianity; they cannot come into sacred ground. Mind you, Father Orthoduck cannot explain the garlic of Bram Stoker, but then, this author does not make them allergic to garlic. This also explains why they are not vulnerable to any other symbol of faith. They are the descendants of Judas.
