The Originals series finale photo: Klaus takes the lead, one last time

The Originals series finale

The Originals series finale is set to air on The CW on Wednesday night, and we know that this is going to be an emotional affair.

Yet, is Klaus really going to die in the middle of it? We do think that there is at least one reason to have hope for him: The photo above. If you recall from the promo for the series finale, you see Klaus effectively surrounded and dying. That’s basically a direct carryover from what happened on this past episode.

In the photo above for “The Saints Go Marching In,” however, Klaus seems to be okay and is sitting at the dinner table. He seems so much more relaxed, almost as though he doesn’t have to worry about sacrificing himself for the sake of Hope anymore.

So what is going on here? We do think there are two very-clear theories worth pondering…

Is this Klaus in peace? – We know that Peace is effectively the show’s version of the afterlife, where characters can leave without fear or trauma. We’ve seen this world both on The Originals and The Vampire Diaries over the past couple of years — the most recent example comes via what happened to Josh. While it would be sad to see Klaus die, it would be rather-nice in order to see him have some sort of happiness. What’s also so fascinating about Peace is that it can be set in so many different time periods; all of his family could be there, but that doesn’t mean that they died at any point.

Did someone actually save Klaus? – We don’t necessarily think that he has to die, and if someone finds a way to save both him and Hope, this could open the door for Joseph Morgan to make appearances on Legacies down the road. We don’t foresee there being many opportunities for appearances down the line, but it certainly is possible.
