Things are about to get even bloodier on Season 2 of “The Originals” when Claire Holt reprises her role as Rebekah in episode 8. According to the synopsis of “The Brothers That Care Forgot,” Auntie Bek, who has spent months away living a normal life with baby Hope, will find herself running back to New Orleans when she senses Esther (Sonja Sohn) has uncovered her whereabouts.
Sink your teeth into three sneak peek videos from episode 8 and get a taste of what drama “The Originals” will be bringing to fans prior to the show’s midseason winter finale.
Sneak Peek 1
Talk about being stuck between a rock and a hard place. The first episode 8 trailer for "The Originals” shows Klaus (Joseph Morgan) giving his treacherous brothers a spine-shivering ultimatum.
“I prefer you both to join me against our mother but I’ll happily settle for one or the other. Either way, if you continue to defy me your lives will be reduced to an unending sequence of agonizing torture. So, which is it to be?” Klaus asks Finn (Yusuf Gatewood) and Kol (Daniel Sharman) with a menacing smirk.
Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), who also appears in the clip, reveals an interesting tidbit regarding Rebekah’s role in episode 8. According to Marcel, Finn and Kol are attempting to drag Rebekah into this family feud after nearly getting Davina (Danielle Campbell) killed in the same manner.
“First you mess with Davina. Now I heard you want to drag Rebekah into all of this. Nu-uh. Not happening,” Marcel says, pushing Kol back with his fingertips.

Finn questions his sister’s whereabouts in the second trailer, wondering how Rebekah managed to escape Klaus’ vileness. But Klaus isn’t willing to give up that answer so easily. Instead, he shoots back with another inquiry, speculating that if Finn thinks he’s atrocious then how does his brother possibly view Esther -- the one that cursed them?
"She was trying to make you mortal again. And you both refused her," Finn fires at Klaus. "Only proves how far you’ve fallen. But I expect Rebekah will have a different response to her proposal."

During a heart-to-heart with Elijah (Daniel Gillies), Rebekah reveals that Finn’s accusations of her wanting to be human might not be so far off. While acting as baby Hope’s guardian, Rebekah discovered just how badly she wished she could partake in one of the most “human experiences” -- having a baby.
“I know I have to give her back to Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) when the time is right,” Rebekah said of returning Hope to her birth parents. “But she’s made me realize how much I want that child of my own that I know I can’t have.”
