There’s some seriously intense chemistry between Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) and Rebekah (Claire Holt) on The Originals, but also a seriously complicated past. Will these two give romance another try, or will Marcel avoid angering Klaus by staying out of Rebekah’s life?

Although Klaus forbade Marcel from being with Rebekah in exchange for his vampirism, he’s not against rubbing salt in an old romantic wound. According to TV Line, Klaus is “regularly getting up in Marcel’s grill and tempting him with 'What if…' scenarios [concerning Rebekah]” in next week’s episode. That Klaus, always a charmer!

But Marcel doesn’t seem to be forgetting his end of the bargain to stay away from Rebekah, perhaps because he will be distracted by the other ladies in his life. Davina is “about to ‘act out’ in a big way.” Apparently, ransacking a church is only a minor tantrum. There’s also brave bartender Cami to worry about. Though Klaus discovered last week that she came to New Orleans to figure out why her twin brother massacred his fellow seminary students (hint: it seems vampire-related), Marcel is unaware of her tie to the quarter.

Basically, if you’re looking for major developments between Marcel and Bekah, it might be a while.
