Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so it’s no surprise that Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and his sister Rebekah (Claire Holt) like to being their morning with a hearty meal. However, this is not the eggs and bacon sort of a crowd. As we find out in a new promo clip from The Originals episode 1×08: “The River in Reverse,” they’re all about sipping on tea, OJ, and fresh blood, and discussing appropriate punishment for family members.
While Klaus drains a young girl of her life source, he questions Rebekah about Marcel’s whereabouts. She acts aloof and nonchalant when she hears her lover’s name mentioned. She also sasses Klaus and he’s had about enough. He attempts to analyze her contemptuous glares. “Let me give a voice to that look in your eyes: ‘My saintly noble brother lies writhing in agony in the bayou, victim of my bastard brother’s bite. And just one or two drops of his blood would ease his pain.'”
Awkward much? Turns out he’s mistaken — or that Bex has a solid poker face. “On the contrary, Nik. I am simply enjoying my brekkie waiting for Elijah’s health to return, ” Rebekah responds with a sly half-smirk.
“Oh come on Rebekah,” Klaus argues. “You’ve been giving me the devil’s eyes all morning. Out with it.”
