The Originals Spoilers: Episode 16 Is Like “Therapy” For the Mikaelsons

There’s nothing more annoying than being trapped inside a cemetery with a murderous family member, amirite? That’s exactly what’s going down in next week’s episode of The Originals, which sees Rebekah (Claire Holt) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) stuck in the local burial grounds with Klaus (Joseph Morgan), who is intent on murdering his sister. Basically, it’s like the Mikaelson’s version of awkward Thanksgiving Day squabbles. What did Charles Michael Davis (Marcel) tease about Season 1, Episode 16 (“Farewell to Storyville”)?

If you ask Charles, the Mikaelsons are in some serious need of a family therapist: "You'd think they would have thought about sitting down and meeting with a therapist or an M.D. or someone that is certified in their thousands of years, but I don't know," he told Zap2it. We’re inclined to agree. Maybe they could get a special rate from Cami (Leah Pipes)? Like a skillshare situation: she’ll help them work through their issues, and they’ll save her uncle from going on a homicidal rampage that ends in suicide. Everyone wins!

Charles called Episode 16 "a little therapy" for the Mikaelsons: "They're going to meet in the cemetery and they're going to hash it out, they're going to talk things out, discuss their feelings. Elijah's probably not going to talk so much about his feelings because he's very noble, Klaus probably has a lot of feelings so he's going to do most of the talking, and Rebekah's probably going to, like, butt in and say stuff."

This sounds like the best recipe for an episode of The Originals ever. We’d even entertain a recurring story arc of their weekly family therapy appointments — you know what, better make it twice a week.

Do you think the Mikaelsons will be able to work through their differences before Klaus kills Rebekah? Do you think they should consider letting Cami be their family therapist? Sound off in the comments below!

The Originals airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
