When it comes to a family as compelling at the Mikaelson clan, picking a favorite can sometimes seem like an impossible feat. Klaus has that whole bad boy vibe going for him, of course, but then again Elijah and his suits are pretty much the stuff dreams are made of. (Well, my dreams, at least.) However, I'd be lying if I said I don't feel a deep sense of true kinship with Rebekah Mikaelson, as played by the former Originals and Vampire Diaries star Claire Holt. I mean, she is just so relatable. (You know, other than the fact that, up until recently, she's been a blood-sucking vampire. But, hey, semantics, right?)
Seriously, though, underneath all of that sass and bloodlust lies the un-beating heart of a romantic and true lover of life, making her the most human Mikaelson of the bunch. Sure, their family dynamic as a whole is a little off balance, not to mention completely unhealthy (don't stake your family members, kids). But regardless of all the craziness, Rebekah has never been afraid to speak her mind. Speaking of which, I've found several of her little verbal outbursts to be extremely on point. So much so that there are some very specific moments when this character said exactly what we all were thinking. For example…
