The Originals (8 PM, The CW)

It's a good thing The Originals is fantasy, because it makes a visit to New Orleans sound rather unappealing:

When Davina (Danielle Campbell) becomes violently ill and the repercussions soon begin to affect the entire French Quarter, Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), Klaus (Joseph Morgan), Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Rebekah (Claire Holt) rush to find out what is going on. Sophie (Daniella Pineda) approaches the others with some startling information about the Harvest Festival and presents a drastic plan to save Davina.

Last, a sequence of unforeseen events sends shockwaves through the French Quarter.

Supernatural (9 PM, The CW)

In a Biblical mythology-heavy show about two brothers, it was only a matter of time before Cain and/or Abel showed up:

Looking to reclaim his place as King of Hell, Crowley (Mark Sheppard) asks Dean (Jensen Ackles) for help finding "The First Blade," the only blade that can kill Abbadon (guest star Alaina Huffman). Knowing he owes Crowley a favor for helping Sam (Jared Padalecki), and also wanting Abaddon dead himself, Dean reluctantly agrees and the two set off on a road trip. However, Dean and Crowley are completely unprepared when they find out who has the blade - Cain (guest star Omundson), the first son. Meanwhile, Sam is back at the bunker with Castiel (Misha Collins) who notices there is some leftover grace inside Sam. If they can extract it, they can use the grace to track Gadreel. The only problem is the procedure may do permanent damage to Sam.



Teen Titans Go! (7:30 PM, Cartoon Network)

Starfire convinces her teammates to use compassion rather than violence in combatting their foes. I imagine this will prove wildly successful.


Arrow (8 PM, The CW)

Things are not looking good for Laurel this week:

Oliver (Stephen Amell) is conflicted after Laurel (Katie Cassidy) reaches out to the Arrow asking him to investigate Sebastian Blood (guest star Kevin Alejandro). Oliver is unsure whether to believe her accusations against the man he has publically supported for mayor, but decides to trust Laurel. However, when the pair gets too close to the truth, Sebastian exposes Laurel's drug addiction and has her arrested. Meanwhile, Roy (Colton Haynes) reveals his new super-strength to Sin (guest star Bex Taylor-Klaus) who wants to test out his abilities.

Meanwhile, John (Luke Mitchell) works with a new break-out.


American Horror Story: Coven (10 PM, FX)

Community (8 PM, NBC)

Judging from the title "Geothermal Escapism," it sounds like something literally explosive might be happening at Greendale:

McQueen) discuss some of Katherine's most notorious moments. Nadia (guest star Olga Fonda) comes up with a frightening plan to protect her mother, and Stefan and Elena are forced to help her.

Finally, Elena and Katherine share an unexpected moment of connection.
