FYI: If you ever find yourself sitting down, maybe gazing out a window, wondering where you can find a 100-year-plus unofficial (but fairly official) ruler of a supernatural city such as New Orleans, never fear. Where could this man be, you ask? Why, karaokeing in a happenin' bar at some random hour during the day, of course!
The aforementioned man could be Marcel, the as-of-last-episode infamous (?) protégé of our buddy Klaus. Once a ragamuffin, orphaned street urchin, this lad remade himself in Klaus' image. Except, he’s Klaus 2.0: the charismatic, brutal, and Machiavellian man we know and (secretly) love, but with actual friends. Like, loyal people that are not compelled. Who do his bidding and LIKE him! Seriously—he’s Klaus but beloved! What a strange and brilliant idea to create a mirror of Klaus that people like. And the tension has already begun: As Klaus now famously said, Marcel has everything he’s ever wanted: power, loyalty, family. And now our man wants what he has. But, instead of being a normal person and trying to get it by being cool and earning it, Klaus is going to try and take it away from Marcel. ‘Cause, like, Klaus built this city (on rock ‘n’ roll. Just kidding, I couldn't resist...) So now it’s time for him to take back the reins, and reign. Lame puns intended.
And now, a list of high notes. ‘Cause it took place in New Orleans. And you associate that with jazz. And music. GET IT?
