The Originals: Claire Holt returns in exclusive photo

(Bob Mahoney/The CW)

Rebekah Mikaelson is the original Original sister. No offense to Freya, but it was Rebekah who vowed to stand by her brothers “always and forever” more than 1,000 years ago, and it was Rebekah we first met in a warehouse in Chicago during Vampire Diaries’ third season.

And ever since that moment, Rebekah has come in and out of our lives. She was last seen on The Originals when she had Elijah stake her in order to fulfill the “family” portion of the prophecy (while also temporarily pressing pause on the curse on her arm). But now that Marcel has taken Lucien’s serum and become the one thing capable of killing her siblings, it’s no surprise that Rebekah is back in town.

EW has an exclusive look at Rebekah’s return in the season 3 finale, which sees her as the only thing standing between Marcel, the man she once loved, and Klaus, her brother. Can she save Klaus from Marcel’s wrath? We’ll find out when The Originals airs its season finale Friday at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
