The Originals Season 1, Episode 14 Sneak Peek: Elijah Strips! (VIDEO)

When The Originals returns with Season 1, Episode 14 (“Long Way Back From Hell”), Elijah is on a mission to find his siblings, and he’s enlisted Marcel and Hayley’s help. But it looks like Celeste and the witches may have left him with a parting gift.

In this exclusive sneak peek from E! Online, Elijah is stripping off his shirt, and while we’d normally be excited about this sexy plotline, judging by Hayley’s shocked expression, something has gone horribly wrong. Could this be why he needs a pen and paper so urgently? Perhaps Elijah is in as much danger as his siblings.

You can watch the sneak peek over on E! Online here.

The last time we saw the Mikaelson siblings, Elijah chose to save Hayley, leaving Klaus and Rebekah at the mercy of the witches. "This whole witch chapter has definitely shown us that the resurrected witches have a mission and it's personal,” executive producer Julie Plec told E! Online. “They get as close to succeeding at tearing apart this family as possibly we've ever seen and the outcome of what it is that the witches do to our Original family will have eternal repercussions for their dynamic."

And when it comes to Genevieve, her mission is clear: she wants Rebekah to suffer. And the best way for that to happen is to tell Klaus all about Rebekah and Marcel’s plot to bring Mikael to New Orleans back in 1919. If there’s one thing that could tear apart the Mikaelson family forever, Rebekah’s betrayal is it. Here’s hoping Elijah can fix things in time, but right now, things aren’t looking good for the Original family.

Catch this episode of The Originals when it returns on Tuesday, February 25 at 8 p.m. ET.
