Spoiler: Rebekah and baby Hope return to The Originals in the 2×08 episode “The Brothers That Care Forgot”!

In The Originals 2×08 episode “The Brothers That Care Forgot” Auntie Beks, Claire Holt, returns with baby Hope! But the family reunion may not be a happy one, thanks to Mama Esther.

Both pictures show a rather suspicious Rebekah. One, in a playground with baby Hope on a swing, looks like she feels like she’s being watched. Perhaps it’s the “Eye of Esther,” like the “Eye of Sauron”! The other picture, with Elijah, looks like she senses that something is not quite right with him.

According to executive producer Michael Narducci, Esther really wants to do the right thing for her children, and will be ruthless and deadly in order to achieve her goal.

How will Rebekah react to Mama Esther’s offer to make her human again, so she can have a normal life and get married and have children? When the cure was being hunted for in The Vampire Diaries she longed to take it and become human again. Exactly the life Esther wants to give her. Between Elijah, Klaus, and Rebekah, she could be the easiest to persuade.

Michael on Esther’s offer to Rebekah

Esther is going to bear down on that exact motive and drive and it’s just a matter of can Rebekah possibly trust her mother? Can she possibly take that offer knowing that it would weaken her family’s ability to fight Esther, knowing that her family might still need her and knowing that she is Hope’s guardian? It’s going to be very difficult for Rebekah to have to put aside her own desires in order to stay and maintain an alliance with her brothers when Esther is basically promising her everything she ever wanted.

Since Hope is supposed to be dead, Auntie Beks can’t just return to NOLA to visit with Mommy. Currently all Esther knows is that her daughter is missing, so she’s dealing with the brothers first. However, she’s using her magic to find her. Once she does, what will happen to Auntie Beks and Hope? What can they do to stay out of Esther’s clutches? According to Michael Narducci, “I can’t wait for the fans to see how that plays out.”

This episode is the first of a two episode holiday event. The second is the 2×09 mid-season finale episode “The Map of Moments” on December 8th, 2014, where Rebekah persuades Klaus and Elijah to take part in a family tradition from their childhood. The episode was written by executive producer Julie Plec and Marguerite MacIntyre and was directed by Leslie Libman.

Meanwhile, Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) is conflicted when she and Jackson (guest star Nathan Parsons) stumble upon an ancient ritual that would get their werewolf packs out from under Esther’s control, but would require her to make a tremendous sacrifice.
