The CW’s The Originals season five episode seven found Hayley’s friends honoring her life and mourning her death. It also found Klaus learning the agonizing news that any reunion of the Mikaelsons will ultimately lead to the death of all firstborns.
Episode seven also featured the return of Elijah and Antoinette to New Orleans, and an enraged Klaus reacted to their return by biting Antoinette. He then deposited Elijah and Antoinette in a cell where Elijah would be forced to watch the poison work its way through Antoinette’s system until it killed her. Elijah agreed to getting his memories back in order to save Antoinette, striking a deal with Vincent and Marcel – a deal Klaus was dead set against. However, Elijah resisted opening the door in his mind and something went terribly wrong with the spell. By the end of the emotional episode (Klaus said his own private goodbye to his “little wolf”), the feuding brothers were locked in a compound with no way to escape. And, Elijah’s memories still hadn’t returned.
Up next, season five episode eight titled “The Kindness of Strangers” airing June 13, 2018. Kellie Cyrus directed from a script by Beau DeMayo and Carina Adly MacKenzie.
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 Kindness of Strangers” Plot: CHAMBRE DE CHASSE — As pressing matters rage on in New Orleans, the Mikaelson siblings find themselves forced to set aside their differences and work together to escape a “chambre de chasse.”
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.
