Tonight’s episode of The Originals sees the Mikaelson siblings trapped together in the cemetery, with Klaus (Joseph Morgan) intent on killing his sister, Rebekah (Claire Holt). But, as we can see in this sneak peek for Season 1, Episode 16 (“Farewell to Storyville”), Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) will do anything to ensure that doesn’t happen...
“Do whatever it takes. Just stay alive,” Marcel tells Rebekah over the phone. “I’ll do what I have to do to get you out of there.”
Rebekah peeks out of the tomb she’s currently hiding to see Klaus, white oak stake still in hand, pacing back and forth not too far away. Elijah (Daniel Gillies) stands between his brother and sister. Looks like Marcel isn’t the only one intent on keeping Rebekah safe.
“I’ve never seen him like this before,” Rebekah tells Marcel. “He’s out of his mind with rage — up all night, yelling one obscenity-laced tirade after the next. He’s going to kill me.”
“Alright, stay as far away from him as you can,” Marcel instructs.
Rebekah isn’t blown away with his advice: “Well, that’s a brilliant strategy, but given that that dead bitch Celeste has trapped us in here until moonrise, my options are somewhat limited.”
“I’m not leaving you in there,” Marcel insists. “Davina will find a loophole, get you out early, then we can all go together. Klaus comes after us, we will take him on one hell of a ride.” Show of hands: who thinks this strategy is going to go as planned? Even if Rebekah was on board with it.
“I’ve lived for centuries looking over my shoulder, ready to run at a moment’s notice,” Rebekah tells Marcel. “Am I to go back to that?”
