Julie Plec touched on what’s next for Rebekah during the show’s San Diego Comic Con panel on Friday, July 25. Though they’re not sure how many episodes Claire is returning for, we can expect to see Rebekah again “at least once in the first three episodes." Hooray!
She likely won’t be coming empty-handed, either. Julie says the writers are all “dying” to see Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) and Klaus (Joseph Morgan) hold their child once more, but they’re “still working to build to that moment.”
We’re sure Hayley and Klaus will have an emotional reunion ahead of them, but one think Phoebe is glad to be rid of is her prosthetic baby bump. The Aussie actress says she was ready to burn that thing by the end of Season 1, though there is one thing about it she misses: “[Now] I’ve got nowhere to hide my phone, my glasses,” she says. Apparently that little bump was quite the convenient hidey-hole.
Somebody better tell wardrobe to give Hayley plenty of pockets this season!
