We know you’ve been waiting three long weeks for “The Originals” to return to The CW. And by the looks of episode 14’s promo, the lengthy hiatus you endured due to the Olympics will definitely be worth it when the “Vampire Diaries” spinoff airs “Long Way Back From Hell” on Tuesday.
According to a leaked synopsis, fans of the Mikaelson family are in for a treat. After choosing to save the life of Hayley (the mortal werewolf girl carrying his brother’s child) over his siblings, Elijah will now devote all his time in episode 14 to saving his brother and sister (Klaus and Rebekah). Currently, Klaus and Rebekah are being tortured by Celeste and her coven of evil witches.
Chained by the neck in a dungeon, Klaus is forced to endure physical pain while his sister is psychologically tormented with scenes from her past. In “Long Way Back From Hell,” Rebekah will suffer from terrifying hallucinations from her time working at an influenza sanatorium in the 1900s.
“[Genevieve] takes Rebekah to a place that’s familiar to her from 1919. A terribly rotted, abandoned old sanatorium where influenza patients were treated back in the influenza epidemic of New Orleans,” executive producer Julie Plec said. But being tormented with horrific scenes from her way back when is only the beginning of Genevieve’s cruel plague.
“This is the episode where Genevieve is hell-bent on making sure that Klaus learns Rebekah’s secret,” Plec continued.
“You’re going to show him everything,” the vengeance-seeking redhead said. Rebekah begs for mercy but it looks like fans will finally be let in on the blonde’s best kept secret. According to episode 14’s synopsis, Rebekah’s dark secret will destroy her if exposed. That only makes us more curious to find out what it is!
Elijah will turn to Marcel and Hayley for help when one of his decisions puts his siblings’ lives in danger. “With time working against them, Marcel realizes he may hold valuable information that could lead them to Rebekah and Klaus, but revealing it will almost certainly result in deadly consequences,” the synopsis reads.
Although the witches don’t plan on killing Klaus and Rebekah, they do intend to wring them dry of any hope that they might be holding on to.
Do you think Elijah will get to his siblings in time? What do you think is Rebekah’s secret? We have so many questions! Let us know your predictions in the comments section below and don’t forget to tune into “The Originals” on the CW on Tuesday at 8 p.m. EST.
