'The Originals': The Best and Worst of Rebekah Mikaelson

Whether she's torturing newbie vamp Elena on The Vampire Diaries or squabbling with ex-boy toy Marcel on The Originals , this blonde bombshell is at her best when she's being bad. Yet, there's more to this Original than scheming and killing. She longs for love and acceptance and is loyal to her often callous and cruel brothers. Like any mean girl, she covers up her insecurities by being stubborn, vengeful, catty and a bit trampy. She has shown, on multiple occasions, that her humanity is not completely lost, and now that she's going to be an auntie, she's grown almost maternal. Whether you like her naughty or nice, Rebekah is always a compelling character. Here are some of her most unforgettable moments both good and bad. //www.buddytv.com/slideshows/the-originals-the-best-and-worst-of-rebekah-mikaelson-83490.aspx
