Elijah. Is. Stripping. Down.
Oh sorry, did you actually need more information than that to watch The Originals all-new episode on Tuesday, Feb. 25 after its mini-break for the Olympics. (Ugh, sports, are we right?!)
We've got an exclusive sneak peek from the episode, "Long Way Back From Hell," that finds Elijah (Daniel Gillies) removing his shirt, but before you get too excited, it seems like we may not like what's underneath it if Hayley's (Phoebe Tonkin) shocked expression is anything to go by! (Then again, we'd be shocked, too, considering it's Elijah's first shirtless appearance. Not that we've been keeping track or anything...)
In the last episode, Elijah's siblings Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Rebekah (Claire Holt) were kidnapped by Genevieve (Elyse Levesque), a witch seeking revenge on the Mikaelson family. In Tuesday's episode, Elijah will team up with Hayley and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) to save his brother and sister.
But could Elijah also be in as much danger as his siblings? " They are definitely under attack," executive producer Julie Plec told us of the Original family. "This whole witch chapter has definitely shown us that the resurrected witches have a mission and it's personal. They get as close to succeeding at tearing apart this family as possibly we've ever seen and the outcome of what it is that the witches do to our Original family will have eternal repercussions for their dynamic."
Plec also revealed that this episode is one of her favorites of the series so far.
"The next episode is actually really crazy. It's new for us, and it's something we've never done before," she said. "We go outside of the Quarter and we put Rebekah and Klaus into a trapped situation in a creepy, horrible, messed up sanitarium from back in the day, and Genevieve, working between the two of them, enacts her revenge. We'll learn why Genevieve's revenge is so specifically targeted towards Rebekah and what exactly she's going to do to make Rebekah suffer as much as possible."
The Originals airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on the CW.
