Has the bag to be claimed anyway at XXX and rechecked, no matter if it's an overnight or a day time layover? Or the bag is tagged to go directly to destination, regardless its owner routing?

And since we're talking about checked luggage... (yes, blasphemy, I know ) ...If you check a carry-on, can you pick it up at the first US point of entry e do not recheck it, bringing it on board all the subsequent flights?
1. Yes, if luggage is checked like OTP-LHR-HEL bag(s) must be claimed and re-checked for subsequent flight/s HEL-LHR and eventually further. If, doing a B2B at HEL, it's more convenient to store the bag at Left Luggage, arrivals level T5.

2. Yes, having checked in a bag for the TATL flight, you'll be fine to take it along for further flights as a carry-on after passing immigration/customs. Provided bag fits carry-on limitations , of course
