What prompts Rebekah to leave Matt Donovan after their European summer fling to travel to New Orleans? "They traveled together in the summer to Europe and I think she realized that her bond with her family is stronger than anything else, any fantasy she has about marrying the high school football star," Claire Holt says. "So she's moving to New Orleans and she's going to try and make any connection she can with her newfound independence that she gained on 'The Vampire Diaries.' But I hope that I can go back and forth and I can still have a little dalliance in Mystic Falls every now and then." And watch out for Rebekah's arrival in New Orleans in episode two... Plec and co. calls her entrance, "Hurricane Rebekah."
