'The Originals' Showrunner Weighs In on Elijah & Hayley's Relationship For Final Season

'The Originals' Showrunner Weighs In on Elijah & Hayley's Relationship For Final Season

We’re a few months out from the premiere of the final season of The Originals on The CW.

While we know, we will be getting some Klaroline scenes throughout the season, but what about our other favorite couple, Hayley and Elijah?

Julie Plec shared with TVLine that we shouldn’t expect them to be together for a while.

“Being able to write a narrative for Elijah that allowed him to live an entirely different life and imagining what that life would look like was a lot of fun,” she shared, adding that there are “a whole bunch of new dynamics.”

So…maybe? We’ll have to wait and see.

There will however, be an all Elijah-focused episode this season.

    Julie Plec talk a big game about feminism yet she kill one of the strongest females in their show. Hayley is a great character and she is vital to the show. Hayley deserves to be alive with her daughter she deserves the best ending with Hope.

    Very disappointed that Julie Plec killed off Hayley. Hayley is my only favorite character, she is one of the main characters of The Originals and it’s super unprofessional to kill one of the amazing characters on The Originals. Hayley is Hope’s mom, are they just gonna rip her mom away from her ? Hayley has tried so hard to keep her daughter happy and safe and this is what she gets in return? Hayley deserves so much more happiness and she doesn’t deserve to die. The Originals is my favorite show but without Hayley I’m done with it.

    The Originals has a very bad habit of killing off it’s female characters. Male series regular has never suffered the same fate. Hayley is such a strong female character: she doesn’t need anyone but herself – all she wants is to protect Hope, by taking her away from the show Julie Plec ruin the show.

  • Isabelle

    Really disappointed by Julie Plec, everything about this final season has been completely ruined by Hayley death spoiler. Julie could continue to make an amazing show but she chose to ruin everything by killing the female lead . Hayley deserves better and Hope too. I never thought that Julie will fall so low, now I understand why TO fans were so worried when Narducci left the show

  • Alice

    Julie Plec thinks she can kill Hopes mother because she suddenly decided to bring a certain blonde vampire from a deceased show to The Originals. I will not continue to watch a show made by people who disrespect the fandom like that.

  • emily

    Julie seems to have a problem with moms, she constantly kills them in her show. She killed off Katie in Containment, Jo in TVD, and now she want to do the same in TO. It’s really disgusting. It looks like that Julie think the only mother who deserve to live is Caroline. It is disgusting that Julie think it is ok to kill off a mother.

  • adrianna

    Hayley is a strong character that has been through so much. It is so cruel that the writers will even consider to take Hayley away from Hope. Hayley should be alive for her daughters sake. Hayley is definitely by far my favorite character. I will not watch The Originals if Hayley dies.

  • Andre

    Hayley is the backbone of this show. It is not fair to kill her off. Hayley didn’t get the chance to fully know her mother so Hope should be able to get that chance. Hayley fought for years for the safety of her child even before Hope was born. Hayley deserves every right and happiness with the child she gave life to. Hayley should be alive

  • ellen

    Julie call herself feminist but she have killed off 2/3 lead females roles so far. In season 5 she killed off Hayley. Despite the fact that Hayley is the lead female character and she has a 15 year old daughter who needs her mother. Hayley doesn’t deserve to die in the last season of TO. The females in this show are only used for the purposes of ships and are killed off as soon as they get their own storyline. The Originals season 4 should have been the last. Julie Plec will ruin everything in s5. I won’t watch TO s 5 and anything else Julie Plec has her hands on.

  • Fernanda

    Hayley is amazing character and great mother. Hayley can’t die. She doesn’t deserve this. Hayley deserves the best ending with Hope. Julie Plec really shouldn’t ruin the TO on its last season. If Julie Plec kill
    off Hayley I will boycott this show and I won’t watch anything else
    Julie Plec has her hands on.

  • Gabriella

    The Originals S4 was the best season,and now Julie will ruin the show
    with Candice and Caroline. Julie Plec made a TVD final atrocious, and
    now by killing off Hayley TO final will be the worst final CW ever had

  • disqus_dbHsJpWWds

    Hayley is the first female lead in the TVD/TO universe who chose morals over love, didn’t crumple under pressure but thrived in it, and wasn’t used as a way to keep the male leads “good” like what was done with Elena/Damon, Caroline/Klaus, Cami/Klaus, and Davina/Kol. Feminism is important to the world now and without Hayley it’s just another patriarchical show led and written by women.
