“The Originals” Season 3 is going back in time and Zap2it has the first look at Rebekah (Claire Holt) and her siblings right after they’ve escaped from their father Mikael (Sebastian Roche). That includes a peek at Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic) and Finn (Casper Zafer) as they come back to the show for the flashbacks.

There’s a blood war afoot when “The Originals” returns. It is months after the Mikaelson brothers had their bloody showdown with Dahlia (Claudia Black) and the divide between Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Klaus (Joseph Morgan) is bigger than ever.

However, they have bigger issues on their plate as the first vampires Klaus, Elijah and Rebekah sired are returning for a mysterious agenda against their “parents.” The first look photos give a glimpse at the flashbacks coming in the Season 3 reveal what life was like for the Mikaelson siblings as separated from Mikael.

According to The CW’s official episode description, it’ll be Klaus that first picks up on the fact that the sires are on their way when “an old vampire friend Lucien (Andrew Lees)” comes to New Orleans with “mysterious agenda.”

“The Originals” Season 3 premieres Thursday, Oct. 8 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
