The Originals mid-season finale left us with a Vampire Esther in transition and Rebekah in a new body.

At the end of Episode 9, Rebekah (Claire Holt) was trapped by Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic) in a witch's body (played by Maisie Richardson-Sellers), and placed her in a witch coven's prison.

According to reports, the second half of Season 2 will focus on baby Hope and her powers.

"We want to explore what makes the child of Klaus, a hybrid, and Hayley, a werewolf, completely different from any other child on this planet," executive producer Michael Narducci told Tvline

"You'll begin to see certain signs — subtle at first, then maybe not-so-subtle — in terms of how this baby is something completely unique."

Executive producer Michael Narducci teased Rebekah's predicament, and confirmed the return of one of the most memorable characters in the show.

Narducci told Entertainment Weekly that the new Rebekah will be recognised by Cassie (Natalie Dreyfuss) who was earlier possessed by her mother Esther (Sonja Sohn).

Cassie herself will be troubled by her past circumstances. After being possessed by Esther, the harvest girl goes through a lot of post-traumatic stress.

Narducci explained: "Rebekah is going to find herself at the start of episode 10 and the person who's kind of filling her in on the rules of this dangerous prison is in fact Cassie."

Meanwhile, executive producer Julie Plec also teased that two minor characters will be given the spotlight in the upcoming episodes of The Originals Season 2.

"Dahlia (Kristin Erickson) is somebody we definitely haven't heard the last of as we move closer to the end of the season," Plec said.

"[She's part of] another sector of evil that's not occupied by the current Mikaelsons."

The character of Freya will also be explored in the upcoming episodes, after viewers found out that Dahlia took her away from Esther as payment for the fertility curse in previous episodes.

Also a new promo for Episode 10 released by The CW teases a major war coming, with the Finn Mikaelsons trying to create trouble between the species- Vampire and Werewolves.
