'Originals' Showrunner Shares Why Klaus & Caroline Didn't Get Their Happy Ever After

'Originals' Showrunner Shares Why Klaus & Caroline Didn't Get Their Happy Ever After

As much as we would’ve liked to seen Klaus and Caroline run off into the sunset together, we were never going to get that.

However, The Originals did give us a glimpse at Klaus’ final day and moments with Caroline in a sweet deleted scene – one where he gives her a tour of his favorite city and they enjoy the festivals around New Orleans together.

“As we got into the final season where he ultimately was struggling with a teenage daughter who was falling for all the wrong kind of men in the same way that Caroline Forbes used to, there was a great link there,” Julie Plec shared with TV Guide about her favorite relationship on the series. “She became a great support system for him. I think that Caroline and Klaus did get their closure.”

However, she admits that “they were never going to dance off into the sunset together because she married Stefan Salvatore and she’s going to hold that in her heart forever, and Klaus, as much as she ever cared about him wasn’t Stefan.”

“So people can be upset about that, but I think them being able to find a purity in their own attraction and admiration for each other after everything they’ve been through before he went off to pull the ultimate move of fatherhood and sacrifice, and for her to be a witness to that, I think was really special for them.”

Why Did [Spoiler] & [Spoiler] Have To Die on 'The Originals'?

Why Did [Spoiler] & [Spoiler] Have To Die on 'The Originals'?

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD! DO NOT READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW!

Last night was the end of an era on The Originals and we bid goodbye to the Mikaelson family – and for some of them, permanently.

In the final episode, Elijah managed to take some of the dark magic from Klaus, which gave his brother one more day to spend with the people he loved – Caroline, Hope, and his family.

Klaus actually got to show Caroline his favorite city, before spending his final moments with his daughter, Hope and family with a dinner.

After their final dinner together, Klaus and Elijah met death together, and put an end to the dark magic of the city.

“When we started the series we knew that what we wanted to achieve by the end was a full completion to Klaus and Elijah’s journey,” Julie Plec shared with TV Guide after the series finale.

“Elijah was determined to help Klaus find his redemption and help him understand the power of unconditional love, and so we knew that along the way Elijah would take a dark turn as Klaus took a lighter turn and that the two of them would find themselves at the end, having completed that journey,” she continued.

“We weren’t sure how we would dramatize it at the end, but the choice to have them both decide to end life together was a decision that we made at the beginning of the final season.”

Daniel Gillies 'Stole' Elijah's Suits From 'The Originals'

Daniel Gillies knows exactly what he’s keeping from The Originals – all of Elijah’s suits!

Speaking with ET, the actor revealed that the suits are definitely going with him as the show wraps up; and it’s not just one suit either, it’s eight.

“I stole suits. Alright, I confess! CW, leave me alone!” he joked. “Here’s the deal, [the suits] were cut specifically for my dimensions. Who else was going to wear them? I deserve them, in some way… as a token… as seven or eight tokens.”

Daniel adds that he quite likes the suits that Elijah wore over the course of five seasons, plus another on Vampire Diaries.

“I like them tremendously,” he shared. “It’s an immediate character transition where you’re getting ready to play the role. You put it on and you suddenly feel like this other animal. It’s unique in that way, I love it. That’s how he’s known.”
