Klaus may have, at times, been a pretty terrifying dude, but that doesn't mean he doesn't know the way to his little girl's heart.
In this exclusive sneak peek of tonight's episode, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) takes his daughter (Summer Fontana) on a little trip to get some of the most delightful sugary treats that New Orleans has to offer: beignets.
As they chow down, Klaus tells Hope the story of the first time he had a beignet thanks to some French nuns, and reveals to her that at one point, he was considered the king of New Orleans, which makes Hope a princess.
What does this have to do with anything happening right now? We don't know, and we don't care, because it's adorable. But we do now really want some beignets.
Tonight's episode, titled "Queen Death" finds Vincent (Yusuf Gatewood) receiving a terrifying message from the Hollow, which sends him on a desperate mission with Freya (Riley Voelkel) and Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin). Klaus, in an effort to keep anyone from having to make the sacrifice the mission requires, forms a surprising alliance and makes a plan that could change his family forever.
In other words, it's a typical potentially devastating episode of The Originals.
The Originals airs Fridays at 8 p.m. on the CW.
