Things are about to get tense on The Originals as Klaus (Joseph Morgan) learns that Rebekah (Claire Holt) and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) were the ones who lured Mikael to New Orleans in 1919 so Klaus would flee the city he called home. Will Klaus ever forgive them for this betrayal? Joseph spoke to TV Guideabout the possibility!
Frankly, it’s not looking good. When asked whether “forever and always,” the vow that Rebekah and Klaus made to one another centuries ago, was done for good, Joseph said: "I mean what is 'for good' in terms of an immortal? But it's a huge betrayal and not something that can be forgiven, and I don't know that Klaus would be satisfied putting Rebekah in a time-out with a dagger." Yikes! We can’t imagine what is worse than getting daggered for a few centuries, but we’re sure Klaus can — which is what worries us. Watch out, Bex!
Joseph didn’t speak specifically about Klaus’ reaction to Marcel’s role in the betrayal specifically, but it doesn’t sound like anyone will be worming his or her way into Klaus’ confidence anytime soon: "He already is very untrusting and suspicious of people's loyalties to him, and this will confirm he was right to be suspicious all along," Joseph said. "His experiences have shown him not to trust anyone but himself, so this is a confirmation of that so he'll find it difficult to team up with anyone...I don't know if there's coming back from this."
It doesn’t help that Klaus’s discovery of said betrayal will come as part of the traumatic experience of his torturing. When The Originals returns tonight with Season 1, Episode 14 (“Long Way Back From Hell”), Klaus and Rebekah will both be in the clutches of the witches, who aim to destroy the siblings even if they can’t kill them. There are better ways to find out about a century-old betrayal than whilst trying to work through the pain of a self-burying dagger, amirite?
Do you think Klaus will be able to forgive Rebekah and Marcel? Sound off in the comments below!
The Originals returns on Tuesday, February 25 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
