‘The Originals’ season 3 spoilers: ‘The Bloody Crown,’ and the big finale

Originals -May 20 marks the big finale for “The Originals,” and if there is one thing that we can say about this installment (entitled “The Bloody Crown”) right now, it is this: We could really be on the cusp of seeing the battle of the ages. This also may be one of the most mysterious episodes that we’ve seen just yet.

Based on the synopsis for this episode below, it feels like this is going to serve just as much as a preview for the fourth season as it is an ending to the third one … and we’re really fine with that:

“After months of thwarting off dangerous threats and deadly attacks, the Mikaelson siblings finally come face to face with the one person that could lead to their ultimate demise. With the stakes higher than ever and the compound overrun by an army of his oldest sworn enemies, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) is put on trial for centuries of atrocities he’s committed. Meanwhile, Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), who has been spiraling out of control following an act of betrayal by those closest to him, is stunned by the unexpected arrival of someone from his past. Finally, Elijah (Daniel Gillies), Freya (Riley Voelkel) and Kol (guest star Nathaniel Buzolic) frantically search for a way to save their family before it’s too late.”

One other thing that we’re excited about here is that we’re going to continue to see Kol in the finale. We’d love to see Buzolic become a series regular for the fourth season, but we don’t precisely know what the producers plans are as of yet.
