The Originals season 5 episode 13 (series finale) spoilers: Klaus faces the end

The OriginalsWe hope that you are ready for The Originals season 5 episode 13 to be emotional. After all, in so many ways it was destined to be. This episode is the series finale, and the title for it also feels fairly much appropriate in “When the Saints Go Marching In.” When you think about some of the most recognizable songs in the history of New Orleans music, this one is relatively high on the list.

Yet, when you think about the actual lyrics for the song, there is a somber quality in that so much of it is about longing and the afterlife. It’s a Christian hymn often played by jazz bands, and it is a song that many in New Orleans have known for the entirety of their lives.

As for what the story of The Originals season 5 episode 13 is, all signs point towards it revolving around a quest to ensure that Hope lives to see another day after everything that is happening with her. While we know that Klaus makes it to the final episode, there is no guarantee that he is going to live to see the other side of it.

Below, The Originals season 5 episode 13 synopsis below (via SpoilerTV) offers up a pretty good sense of just what you can expect to see:

ALWAYS AND FOREVER — Intent on saving Hope’s (Danielle Rose Russell) life, Klaus’ (Joseph Morgan) plan will change the lives of the Mikaelson family forever. Daniel Gillies, Charles Michael Davis, Riley Voelkel and Yusuf Gatewood also star. Lance Anderson directed the episode with teleplay by Jeffrey Lieber and story by Julie Plec (#513). Original airdate 8/1/2018.

As you would imagine, the series or The CW is probably not going to be giving a heck of a lot away in advance when it comes to some of the story you can expect to see. We imagine that this is going to be a dramatic final episode, one that will offer up a chance in order to get some closure for many of our favorite characters. Let’s just hope that it’s not overwhelmingly sad. (We do know that Hope survives, as she is the lead for the upcoming CW series Legacies.)
