Now that Elijah and Klaus have the necessary information to retrieve their beloved Rebekah from the bottom of the ocean, it seems their always-and-forever sibling is going to make it home in time for the holidays. And because the Mikaelsons are creatures of habit, Originals fans can expect at least one more return … the return of holiday traditions, that is.

EW has an exclusive first look at Claire Holt in the upcoming Originals midseason finale, in which Rebekah, Elijah, and Klaus all stand around a fire. As fans of the show know, the family has a tradition of writing down their wishes and burning them for good luck. And even though they’re in the middle of fighting a life-threatening prophecy, it seems they still manage to find time to make a few wishes. (Either that, or they’re waiting for one of Freya’s spells to kill someone. You never know.)
