If there’s one thing we’re finally looking forward to seeing on The Originals, it’s for Rebekah Mikaelson (Claire Holt) and Marcel Gerard (Charles Michael Davis) to rekindle their forbidden passions of yesteryear. Now that Rebekah has cut off her ties to Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig) on The Vampire Diaries, we really want to see the blonde bombshell find someone to love.
We already know that Rebekah and Marcel were getting all hot and bothered back in the 1800s, a la Episode 2 (“House of the Rising Son”), in which we saw how Marcel came to be Klaus Mikaelson’s (Joseph Morgan) right-hand man, only to fall from grace after getting steamy with Rebekah.
Thanks to co-executive producer Michael Narducci, we have a sneaking suspicion that Rebekah and Marcel are going to share a huge scene together in Episode 6 (“Fruit of the Poisoned Tree”), and thanks to a new promo, we can confirm that!
In the promo, Marcel confronts Rebekah in the potion store while she’s clearly stealing. Check out the exchange:
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, luckily for you, your cookies are the last thing on my mind.
Marcel: Oh, I can see that. Though I remember a time when things were different.
Rebekah: Maybe once, but not anymore.
Do you think there will be a super steamy scene between these two former love birds next week? Hit the comments and let us know!
