Culture Movies & TV Klaus and Caroline could have had something together in the future if The Originals series finale had ended differently, showrunner Julie Plec revealed to TVLine Wednesday. Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) knew he was going to sacrifice himself in the last episode after he took in the dark magic that was killing his daughter, Hope (Danielle Russ Russell). Caroline (Candice King) went to New Orleans to say goodbye and make him fulfill a promise he'd made back when The Originals was first introduced in a backdoor pilot of The Vampire Diaries in Season 4 in 2013: to show her his city. After he did, she kissed him goodbye. A series finale deleted scene (above) shows Klaus telling Caroline about meeting Cami (Leah Pipes) in the first episode. The two women had a lot in common.

He followed through on his previous offer to show Caroline (Candice King) his city, and she kissed him goodbye. Klaus spent time with his family, including his brother, Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic).

Culture All Klaus had to do to complete his plan and save his daughter’s life was push a stake into his own heart when the penultimate episode of The Originals ended Wednesday. The Hollow, the spirit of a powerful witch, possessed Hope Mikaelson (Summer Fontana) in Season 4. In the finale, witch Vincent Griffith (Yusuf Gatewood) took it from her and divided it among her father Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and his siblings, Elijah (Daniel Gillies), Rebekah (Claire Holt) and Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic).

Culture Movies & TV The Originals is ending next week, but the spinoff Legacies is coming in October. The CW debuted a trailer at San Diego Comic-Con Saturday. Legacies will follow tribrid Hope Mikaelson (Danielle Rose Russell), the daughter of a werewolf and one of the first vampires and granddaughter of an evil witch. “When we’re young, we’re taught the difference between a hero and a villain, good and evil, a savior and a lost cause, but what if the truth is that the only difference is just who’s telling the story?” Hope asks in the trailer. There’s only one school for her and others like her, fighting against their nature telling them to be evil: the Salvatore Boarding School in Mystic Falls.
