According to a report from SpoilerTV, the finale is going to be titled “When the Saints Go Marching In” — certainly an appropriate name for the end of a show set in New Orleans. We always associated this song as the big number that ends a parade — it’s triumphant, fun, and the words are easy enough that it makes it a pretty easy song to sing along to.
As for how this is going to translate over to the show itself, that’s certainly anyone’s guess since we don’t picture the series finale closing with Joseph Morgan and Daniel Gillies grabbing some trombones and heading out onto the parade route. Maybe there will be some sort of triumph at the conclusion of the series for the Mikaelson family — at least in whatever form that takes for them, where they can find some peace and move forward with their lives.
Or, maybe this title is meant to be rather dark. Maybe this is actually what the show is going for — some sort of big cacophonous ending where there are dead bodies and problems flying in every possible direction. Either way, signs point towards this being a very interesting and exciting way to tee up the end of the show. Now, we just gotta wait for the premiere — hopefully it’ll come after the conclusion of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend in the winter, but there’s a good chance that we will end up having to wait until spring again.
In case you’re wondering why the series finale wasn’t given the show’s frequent tagline of “Always & Forever,” the simple reason for that is because that was the title of the series premiere! (There was a brief moment when we forgot about that and just automatically assumed that this was going to be the title that the show chose to go with here.)
