'Vampire Diaries' sneak peek: The Originals go back a thousand years

tvd-originals-1.jpgThis week on "The Vampire Diaries," Mystic Falls will be invaded by ghosts for a creepy episode that airs just in time for Halloween. We can't wait to see what Hot Uncle Mason and the others have up their sleeves, but we're also anxiously awaiting next week's episode, in which we travel back in time to see what Mystic Falls was like 1000 years ago.

We'll meet the Original family before they were turned into vampires. This episode marks the return of Elijah ( Daniel Gillies), everyone's favorite honorable vamp; and we'll also be introduced to the mother of the Original sibs, Esther ( Alice Evans). We've got our fingers crossed for more information about Mikael ( Sebastian Roche), and we will finally meet the Original Witch that has recently been wreaking havoc from beyond the grave.

While we wait, check out these pics from the episode -- including a shot of Rebekah ( Claire Holt) seemingly consoling Klaus ( Joseph Morgan). We can't blame him for being upset. You would be, too, if that was your hair.
