If you’re anything like us, you can’t get enough of The Originals – so it’s a good thing we have the new Kol-focused web series, The Awakening, to feed our addiction.

But when the opportunity came up to do this web series with Target, we knew we wanted to do a flashback story, so I repurposed that old story.”
