The Originals boss on what comes after those midseason finale shockers

Death comes to ‘The Originals’ just in time for Christmas.

Thanks for Jon Snowing us before the holidays, ! For those of you who wanted to see Klaus and Cami get together on “The Originals,” here is your good news: It happened on Thursday night’s winter finale!

“Do you ever want to just rip out [Klaus’] heart and see how long it takes to grow back?” is one of the first things a cursed Rebekah MIkaelson said once she’d awoken from her sea nap on Thursday’s fall finale of The Originals. Now we have to wait more than a month to find out whether the character found with her throat slit in the midseason finale is actually dead, or if there’s some crazy way they’re going to bring her back. While Rebekah (Claire Holt) was briefly resurrected in time for the holiday, her Strix curse infliction resulted in her begging for a mercy stabbing from big brother Elijah (Daniel Gillies) — thus enacting the first step of the prophecy that the family will fall “one by friend, one by foe and one by family.” Also damaging: While Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Cami (Leah Pipes) finally ignited that passion they had been circling since season one, their happiness was brief.

They either made potentially a big move or set everyone up for quite a trick by “killing off” Cami, which we’re putting in quotes at the moment because we have no idea if it will stick. Anyone who thought Freya was the only Mikaelson to predict the future got a rude awakening when Klaus’ heart was metaphorically ripped out in the final moments of the episode. Based on the promo below for the show’s return on Friday, January 29, there is one thing that we do know with some confidence: Klaus’ attempt at retribution will be quick, and the Strix better be worried.

After finally giving into his desire to be with Camille (Leah Pipes), the troubled soul of a vampire awoke the next morning to find her in best next to him, dead with a slit throat. If this weren’t bad enough, Aurora’s equally evil brother Tristan (Oliver Ackland) has laid a dangerous trap for Vincent (Yusuf Gatewood) to ensure his loyalty to him over the Mikaelsons. For some clarity on these events and also for what’s in store for the second half of the season, Variety spoke with “The Originals” creator Julie Plec. This is exactly the sort of thing that’s going to make Klaus fly off the handle once again — which is the exact thing the Mikaelsons don’t need at this point. We believed it was important to show Aurora’s instability, jealousy, insecurity and viciousness in the worst way possible — that hell has no fury in the way that only a horrible ex can do.

Romantic perfection!—before waking up to find his beloved’s throat slit open and her blood covering their love nest. “The safest place for you right now is with me,” he told her over and over again this episode, which should have been the tip off, but now fans just feel lied to as we’re forced to soak in our tear river of heartbreak. Speaking of slivers of hope, we are almost begging viewers to continue to check out this show live, if for no other reason than that the move to Friday nights could be difficult. If he was starting to open himself to people again, this could be thing that shuts him off, even perhaps for good (or at least however long this show stays on the air). That would be Aurora, Klaus’ certified crazy ex-girlfriend who couldn’t stand the idea of him being with another woman, or other person period, really. It’s been a dance with them for awhile because she has admitted that she’s drawn to him in spite of herself and we know that Klaus is constantly conflicted by the harder side of him that refuses to open up and the side of him that will let himself be loved and have these very poetic interludes with women throughout his life.

As if that’s not enough, Rebekah is seemingly cursed for the time being — meaning she’ll be of no use to the Mikaelsons during their ongoing war. Instead, Elijah (Daniell Gillies) had to stake her himself, taking her out of commission until they can find a cure for the curse Aya’s stake put on her.

Add in the fact that Elijah was forced to stake Rebekah when the Strix curse wasn’t cured (that seemed a little too easy, right?) and we have two extremely pissed off, ready for vengeance Mikaelson brothers. He’s really heartbroken, especially given how he feels about daggers in general, to be the responsible big brother and do the right thing for the family as a whole.

A bloodbath is surely in order when The Originals returns on January 29, but for now we’ll be over here with all the tissues waiting for our own ripped-out hearts to grow back. Vincent, after finally realizing that avoiding magic is about easy as catching a taxi on Bourbon Street, is now realizing that he’s come up against a pretty deep held grudge with Tristan — and Tristan will use any way to get back at the Mikaelsons.
