If there's one thing The Originals' Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) is best known for, it's breaking the rules. We just never thought he'd break one this BIG!

In this exclusive sneak peek at the Season 5 premiere, Klaus is committing a major no-no by visiting Elijah (Daniel Gillies) at his piano bar in France for some quality brother time — even if Elijah just thinks he's a chatty patron. Freya (Riley Voelkel) and Vincent (Yusuf Gatewood) warned the siblings they couldn't be anywhere near each other while they still housed the remnants of The Hollow inside them, since it would risk resurrecting their old enemy.

Naturally, Klaus took that order as more of a suggestion.

Rather than staying away, he's flying a little too close to the sun for comfort. But can you really blame him? The way he tells it, Klaus has been completely isolated for a terribly long time, cut off from every person in his life he cares about. Worst of all, he hasn't even spoken to his daughter in five years, a plight we never thought he'd have to suffer again after their reunion last year.
