Our heads are still spinning after the crazy — and death — that went down in Episode 11 (“Après Moi, Le Déluge”) of The Originals, but it’s already time to turn our focus ahead and brace ourselves for the twists and turns that are just around the corner, especially since Celeste is very much alive and has brought reinforcements.

In the promo for Episode 12 (“Dance Back from the Grave”), Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) are poised with a very important problem: vampires are dropping like flies. And it becomes pretty obvious that it’s at the hands of witches. Then Sophie (Daniella Pineda) is at the ready to let us know that what’s going on is sacrificial magic, which is done to help someone gain more power. We’re assuming that the bad guys are, as usual, up to no good.

Cue and attack on Klaus. A sharply-dressed witch attacks our favorite Mikaelson in a bar and utters some very disturbing news. “When I’m done, he’s going to wish he could die.” Gulp. We’re going to be stressing out for an entire week. Thanks, Julie Plec.

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