The CW’s The Originals will return after a two week break with an episode directed by series star Charles Michael Davis. Davis previously directed The Originals‘ season four episode seven, “High Water and a Devil’s Daughter.”
Season five episode six titled “What, will, I, have, left” was written by Marguerite MacIntyre and will air on May 30, 2018. Candice King and Reign‘s Torrance Coombs return as guest stars.
The fifth and final season of The Originals stars Joseph Morgan as Klaus, Daniel Gillies as Elijah, Yusuf Gatewood as Vincent, Steven Krueger as Josh, Charles Michael Davis as Marcel, Riley Voelkel as Freya, Phoebe Tonkin as Hayley, Danielle Rose Russell as Hope, Nathaniel Buzolic as Kol, Candice King as Caroline, and Claire Holt as Rebekah.
The “What, will, I, have, left” Plot: THE RACE TO SAVE HAYLEY — After learning how she can get Hayley (Tonkin) back, Hope (Russell) sets off on a dangerous mission to end the mess she started. Klaus (Morgan) turns to Caroline (guest star Candice King) for help when he discovers Hope’s plan. Vincent (Gatewood) and Freya (Voelkel) clash over whether to let Declan (guest star Torrance Coombs) in on New Orleans’s supernatural secrets.
The Season 5 Plot: The final season of The Originals begins seven years after the core members of the Mikaelson family – Klaus, Elijah, Rebekah and Kol — each absorb a quarter of the Hollow’s dark energy and flee New Orleans in order to keep both their beloved city and young Hope (guest star Summer Fontana) safe. In the interim, Vincent and Josh preside over a Big Easy almost devoid of conflict, while Hayley and Freya watch Hope grow into a teenager, eventually opting to send her to the Salvatore School so that Caroline can keep an eye on her.
With Marcel following Rebekah out of town and Elijah stripped of his memory, the danger seems to be contained… until a sudden tragedy forces the siblings to return home. As the Mickaelsons return to New Orleans, bringing the pieces of a centuries old evil with them, it becomes clear that the closing chapter of this family saga will be as bloody and emotional as ever.
