If you’ve watched any of the previews or seen the photos for Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 10, “After School Special,” then you’ve noticed some Originals are alive and kicking. 

Rebekah (Claire Holt) and Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic) are both back and on the hunt for the cure. Meanwhile, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) is out at the Gilbert lake house, trying to intimidate the hunter’s mark out of Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen).

Sadly, we’ll be missing someone and their soft brown locks tonight. According to Entertainment Weekly, Elijah (Daniel Gillies) doesn’t make an appearance in this episode. Sigh.

We know Daniel Gillies is a busy man (his show Saving Hope got renewed for another season), but we’re hoping he’ll clear his schedule for more TVD — especially with this new spin-off in the works.
