'The Originals': Charles Michael Davis & Claire Holt Talk Marcel & Rebekah's Future

SPOILER ALERT – Do not continue reading if you haven’t watched The Originals‘ final season premiere yet!

In the season five premiere of The Originals, Marcel Gerard got down on one knee and proposed to Rebekah Mikaelson and it was beautiful – but the potential engagement didn’t happen.

“It was sad, I felt so bad for him!” Claire Holt told TVLine. “He went to so much effort for this beautiful proposal, and she just couldn’t get herself together. I would have said yes, and then just dealt with it later, right?”

Charles Michael Davis admitted that that “all my characters get rejected,” but he isn’t giving up on Marcel and Rebekah just yet.

“They’re immortal, so there’s always a chance,” Charles said.

'The Originals' Showrunner Talks How Hope Deals With Being Her Family's Only Hope in Final Season

'The Originals' Showrunner Talks How Hope Deals With Being Her Family's Only Hope in Final Season

Hope has a talk with mom Hayley in this new still from the season five premiere of The Originals, premiering tonight.

In the upcoming season, we’ll see how Hope deals with not just her powers, but being part of a powerful, magical family as well.

Julie Plec shared with Variety that her entire journey “is centered around the question of what kind of burden is it to place on an unborn child that she is this family’s only hope?”

“…What does that do to your psyche, what does that do to your sense of self?” she questions. “Here’s this girl with all of this kind of magic broiling around inside of her, and how is that going to manifest if she takes after her daddy and his temper problems? I think that it’s all part of growing up.”

Julie adds, “When you’re born into a complicated family and you’re trying hard to find your true self but you’ve inherited whatever disease that gets passed down through the DNA of that family — you’re just trying to be your best self.

“She’s constantly struggling to be that foundation that her family needs, which is not always easy.”

The Originals premieres TONIGHT, April 18th @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.

'The Originals' Showrunner Previews How Klaroline's Relationship Has Changed

Let’s be real here – it’s been a very, very long while since Caroline Forbes and Klaus Mikaelson have seen each other, and it will definitely show when The Originals returns for its’ final season premiere tonight.

Speaking with EW, showrunner Julie Plec opened up about how the could-be couple’s relationship has changed from instant fireworks to an mature one.

“It’s a shift from the instant fireworks of that kind of ‘young damsel in distress/bad boy with a buried heart’ dynamic that’s is so potent when you’re young,” she shared.

“As you get older, experience tells you that that kind of stuff can be just as dangerous as any monster, and so with age and wisdom comes a settled feeling of peace and maturity.”

Julie adds, “Where we’re finding Caroline, she’s there, and Klaus is constantly searching for that, so it’s a whole new dynamic for them because she can be a peer to him, she can be a support system to him and have an adult friendship and relationship with him in a way that she never could back when they were canoodling in series past.”

The Originals returns TONIGHT, Wednesday, April 18th on The CW.

Klaus just doesn’t care about that rule to keep away from family in the final season of The Originals.

If you remember, at the end of the fourth season, each of the Mikaelson family have a piece of The Hollow inside them, and they must keep away from each other in order for it not to escape.

However, in this new clip via TVGuide, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) has ignored it completely and visits Elijah (Daniel Gillies)!

The two brothers have a piano-side conversation about family, but it doesn’t seem to dawn on Elijah that there’s more to the story between them…at least not yet.

The Originals premieres THIS WEDNESDAY @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.
