Joseph Morgan & Danielle Rose Russell Talks Hope & Klaus' Reunion on 'The Originals' Tonight

Hope and Klaus are reunited tonight on The Originals – and it’s going to be an awkward reunion.

Both stars – Joseph Morgan and Danielle Rose Russell – opened up about the father/daughter dynamic between the two after having not seen each other for seven long years.

“There’s still some resentment there and a lot of sort of anger and upset there,” Joseph shared with TV Guide of the tense feelings. “She still feels certainly abandoned by her dad, and he feels this tremendous sense of guilt.”

He adds that Klaus “sort of covers for that by telling himself the lie that, ‘She’s better off without me.’ But it becomes quickly apparent that she is not, and she’s going down a path where he needs to step in and help and be a parent… It’s turbulent to say the least, their relationship.”

Danielle spoke with EW about the same situation, telling the glossy that the reunion is “a little emotional.”

“They really begin to navigate their new relationship for the first time in a very long time, and it’s really emotional to do that,” she adds. “If you hadn’t spoken to your father in seven or eight years, or since you were a young child and now you’re a teenager, you’ve changed a lot.”

“I think Hope really has come to terms with who Klaus is, so it’s a really interesting dynamic that this season will begin to explore.”

The Originals airs TONIGHT @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.

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

    Hayley is not only my favorite character, but she is one of the main characters of The Originals , it’s super unprofessional to kill one of the amazing characters on The Originals. Hayley is Hopes mom, are they just gonna rip her mom away from her just like they ripped away her dad? 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. TO is my favorite show but without Hayley I’m done with it.

  • Fernanda

    Hayley is amazing character and great mother. Hayley can’t die. She doesn’t deserve this. Hayley deserves the best ending with Hope. Plec really shouldn’t ruin the The Originals on it’s 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.

  • paul

    Hayley’s character is one of the best ever, it shows how incredibly powerfull women can be, and it’s not fair that she’s being killed, Hayley deserves better, she should be alive and happy with her daughter

  • Alice

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

  • Sabrina Robertson

    Hayley is my favorite characters in the show,she’s badass and amazing! She’s Hopes mother it would be completely wrong to take her away after all that has happened to Hope.

  • Isabelle

    Really disappointed by Plec, everything about this final season has been completely ruined by Hayley death spoiler. Julie Plec 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 Plec will fall so low, now I understand why TO fans were so worried when Narducci left the show.

  • Alexia

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

  • ellen

    Julie Plec call herself feminist but she have killed off 2/3 lead females roles so far. In s 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 The Originals. 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 s5 and anything else Julie Plec has her hands on.

  • sierra

    The Originals was great show but now all that will go down the drain since Caroline is coming, Caroline should not be in TO. Julie Plec once again is killing off another female character , while the men are safe. Hayley deserves so much more happiness and she doesn’t deserve to die. TO is my favorite show but without Hayley I’m done with it. I will boycott The Originals and I won’t watch anything else Julie Plec has her hands on.

  • Gabriella

    The Originals Season 4 was the best season,and now Julie Plec will ruin the show. Plec made a TVD final atrocious, and now by killing off Hayley TO final will be the worst final CW ever had

  • disqus_s7UbhcpT5N

    Hayley is the female lead on The Originals. Hayley is a fighter, a legend, she deserves better than what Julie Plec have planned for her. Julie Plec want to kill her off, take away a mother from Hope ,and replaced her by Caroline. It is really disgusting, I didn’t think that Julie Plec would fall so low

  • emily

    Julie Plec 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 The Originals. It’s really disgusting,it looks like that Julie Plec thinks the only mother who deserves to live is Caroline. It is disgusting that Julie Plec think it is ok to kill off a mother, to make a place for Caroline and Candice.

  • disqus_dbHsJpWWds

    Hayley is the first female lead in the TVD/TheOriginals 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, Davina/Kol. Feminism is important to the world now and without Hayley it’s just another patriarchical show

  • Christelle Perez

    Hayley is the best character in the originals and she has a such beautiful, singular and genuine heart and spent all those years helping to build every little piece of the show with her narrative, she’s so important! So it would be very unfair to be ruthlessly pulled of the show and she’s has gone through many horrors, pain, cruelties, atrocities, and always in search of love, happiness and family for years and years and deserves with all strength a happy ending with Hope
