The Originals doesn't merely return tomorrow night after a lengthy holiday hiatus.
It does so with an installment that brings the show's wonderful ladies to the forefront, as The Originals Season 1 Episode 10 is titled "The Casket Girls" and centers on an annual festival in New Orleans.
So you know what this means, right? Lots and lots of Rebecca Mikaelson!
Claire Holt previewed the fun episode when we stopped by the show's set in Atlanta late last year and now we're here to really get fans in the mood:
Click through the following slides to relive the best Rebecca Mikaelson quotes from Season 1. We have a feeling we'll be addng to these after tomorrow...
[to Klaus] Now that we've established that I'm a failure as a sister, and a friend, and an original, you should probably know he's on his way to Marcel right now to rat me out.Rebekah
1. I'm a failure?!?
Rebekah confronts Klaus in this scene, going on about how much she is supposedly a failure.
[to Hayley] I don't care if we have to get you a leash, that is your last trip to the bayou.Rebekah
2. Listen to me, Hayley!
Rebekah can talk an independent game. But she really just wants some friends.
Rebekah: So this is what you do the first time we're back together as a family? Vampire Book Club?
Klaus: Reading edifies the mind, sister.
- Permalink: Reading edifies the mind, sister.
3. Vampire Book Club, huh?
Why do we love Rebekah? Because she isn't afraid to give it back to Klaus.
Poetry about poisoned apples from dead trees? Looks like someone's worried about his impending Daddyhood.Rebekah
4. Daddyhood Issues
Looks like someone has some Daddyhood issues. Isn't that right, Klaus?
5. Supernanny to the rescue!
Rebekah as Supernanny? Not sure if we'd trust her with our child.
Hey, just because you're carrying a baby doesn't mean you get to act like one.Rebekah
6. Stop Being a Baby!
Rebekah doesn't care for whining. She makes that clear to Hayley here.
Marcel: Just keeping my city safe from thieves and vandals, but every time I turn around, I catch an Original with their hand in the cookie jar.
Rebekah: Well, lucky for you, your cookies are the last thing on my mind.
7. Turning Down Cookies
Sorry, Marcel. Rebekah doesn't want any of your cookies right now.
Marcel: You ran. I stayed. This empire, it thrives because of me and you want me to run. A man does not run from his home.
Rebekah: I have lived a lot longer than you, Marcellus. I have seen kings rise and fall. If there is one thing I know to be true it is no matter how big your empire becomes, it is nothing if you have no one to share it with. If you want New Orleans, have it. I won't be here to stop you.
8. Good Luck, Marcel!
Rebekah talks down to Marcel in this scene. She tries to put him in his place.
Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. I am a liar, a betrayer. I have conspired against my own blood and I doubt even your God could save me.
9. Bless Me, Father...
Rebekah seeks forgiveness in this scene. Sort of. She doesn't expect to get it.
Rebekah: Absolutely not! I paid for that!
Elijah: Please. You've never paid for anything in your life.
Rebekah: I hardly see how that's relevant.
- Permalink: I hardly see how that's relevant.
10. Joking with Elijah
When you are a powerful and gorgeous vampire like Rebekah, you get anything you desire. For free.
Elijah: I'm not trying to impress the girl.
Rebekah: Well I should bloody hope you are. Why else are we out here? Come on, Elijah. You've fallen for her. Admit it. It may do wonders for the stick that's lodged up your enduringly stoic ass if you did.
11. Admit It, Elijah!
Come on, Elijah. Admit you have feelings for Hayley. You are terrible at hiding it.
Rebekah: Perhaps I'm concerned that if I voice my opinion about what you did to Elijah, I will end up on the wrong side of your toxic hybrid teeth.
Klaus: Poppycock! I would never bite you...you know my preferred method of punishment for your indiscretions is the dagger.
Rebekah: There is something fundamentally wrong with you.
12. Klaus Has Issues
Rebekah puts her brother in his place in this Originals scene. Or she tries to at least.
