The number one way to piss of Elijah Mikaelson is to threaten his family. Although he might loathe his siblings at times, he’ll do anything to protect them. That’s something we learned in season 2 of The Vampire Diaries when he couldn’t kill his hybrid brother. And now, years later on The Originals, nothing has changed.

EW has an exclusive sneak peek of this week’s episode, in which Elijah confronts his first progeny, Tristan, about the threat facing his family. Needless to say, Elijah cares about his siblings more than he cares about his sire line (and there’s a heart in a mason jar to prove it).
The Originals airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
