Rebekah Mikaelson (Claire Holt) and Marcel Gerard (Charles Michael Dance) share a tumultuous love story on The Originals, but has their flame been extinguished before it’s barely begun to burn again? In the mid-season finale, Marcel seemingly chose Klaus’s love over Rebekah’s. Does this mean Marcel and Rebekah are over?

Yes, Marcel has ditched Rebekah one too many times

Poor, Rebekah. Just when we thought she had many found a guy who would do anything for her love, he turns around and chooses her brother. Again. (Let us not forget that time Marcel let Klaus dagger Rebekah for 50 years.) We think Rebel might actually be over for now. With Marcel aligned with Klaus not only because we think he has lingering familial attachment to the vamp who turned him, but because he needs to make Klaus believe him a friend or the paranoid hybrid will probably hole him up in The Garden. As for Rebekah, she honestly seemed done with Marcel when he made his choice in the mid-season finale. Has she finally learned her lesson? We just want her to find someone worth her love -- and, so far, no one has proven himself worthy.

No, they still care for one another

Frankly, we totally thought these lovebirds were on the outs after the mid-season finale, but a tease from TV Line has us re-visiting their quasi-breakup. According to the entertainment news outlet, a new witchy character named Genevieve will be introduced with “some unfinished business with Rebekah and Marcel.” Does this mean that Genevieve comes back to New Orleans to find Rebekah and Marcel together? Or that she returns, forcing the estranged couple back into one another’s business? Either way, the result is the same: Rebel back in action! Because, even if these two don’t join force because they just can’t stay away from one another, you know if they spend any real time together, they’ll probably fall back into one another’s arms. We just hope Rebekah doesn’t get burned again this time.

Do you think Rebekah and Marcel are still together or are they over for now? Sound off in the comments below!
