With The Originals' core family torn apart by Klaus' deceptions, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) isn't entirely thrilled about the estrangement. "Always and forever, indeed," he laments in the season three trailer.

Although Klaus puts on a tough front -- he warns, "I am the thing that men fear" -- the Mikaelson family has a bigger problem to contend with: core members of their sire lines have come back into their lives.

"This is definitely the season about the sire lines," The Originals showrunner Michael Narducci told The Hollywood Reporter. "We are going to meet some of the people who, in their early days as vampires, Elijah, Klaus and Rebekah turned. We're going to see the first time someone was turned into a vampire. We're going to see what life was like for the Mikaelson siblings, not long after Esther turned them; not long after Klaus killed his mother, not long after they went. In the present, we will see the return of some of these faces, and what their feelings are today -- knowing full well if an Original vampire dies, the entire sire line dies. And what their point of view of that might be."

The Originals returns Oct. 8 at 9 p.m. on The CW.
