The fourth season of The Originals.

Season SummaryEdit

Six short weeks after the third season finale, season four finds the Mikaelsons adjusting to life in D.C. While the revelation of Pope's identity has divided the family and their allies, Finn finds himself extending a hand in friendship to the terrorist leader when Tristan de Martel returns and sparks a war between vampires and the American government.

The second half of the season picks up four years after Tristan's war and focuses on the Mikaelsons' relationships with the politicians in power. Elsewhere, Freya's labors to resurrect Rebekah Mikaelson bear fruit and she turns to the mysterious Vivianne Lescheres-Mikaelson, an old flame of Klaus', to achieve her goals.
