At the end of episode 16 of The CW’s “The Originals,” immortal vampire Rebekah (Claire Holt) was seen exiting New Orleans in a red convertible, wind whipping through her hair, after she bid goodbye to the important people in her life. Now, Zap2it can reveal that yes — it was a true goodbye. “Farewell to Storyville” was the actress’ final episode of the series.
Sources tell Zap2it that the episode was Holt’s last one as a series regular, although the option is open for her to return periodically as a guest star. Holt was the final cast member to sign on to the “Vampire Diaries” spinoff.
