In a devastating turn of events, the still memory-impaired Elijah chose his girlfriend’s family over his own in The CW’s The Originals season five episode six. The episode also featured the death of Hayley as she went out in a blaze of glory to protect Hope. On a lighter note, episode six also served up some delicious Klaus and Caroline moments while the two were on a road trip to save Hope.
Up next, season five episode seven titled “God’s Gonna Trouble the Water” airing June 6, 2018. Carl Seaton directed the episode from a script by Bianca Sams and Julie Plec.
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 “God’s Gonna Trouble the Water” Plot: THE RETURN TO NEW ORLEANS — Ivy (guest star Shiva Kalaiselvan) reveals some startling news to Klaus (Morgan) about the dark magic that’s been keeping him away from his family. Elijah (Gillies) turns to some unexpected allies to save Antoinette’s (guest star Jaime Murray) life.
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 Mikaelsons 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.
