Hope's Life Will 'Hang In The Balance' Towards The End of 'The Originals'

Hope's Life Will 'Hang In The Balance' Towards The End of 'The Originals'

We only have three more episodes until the end of The Originals, and we just got a little scoop about the one before the end.

Showrunner Julie Plec revealed and confirmed to TVLine about Alaric’s return to the show, and how it’s going to impact Hope, played by Danielle Rose Russell, and the future of spinoff series, Legacies.

Alaric will be returning in the penultimate episode, which is set at the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted in Mystic Falls; and he’ll maybe have a hand in helping out Hope.

The episode will focus on Klaus returning to the town, seeking help for Hope, whose life hangs in the balance.

Hopefully, we’ll get even more details about that storyline when The Originals returns this week on The CW.

Danielle Rose Russell Talks How Hope & Klaus' Relationship Will Change For Final Episodes of 'The Originals'

So, we don’t have a new episode of The Originals tonight, which is unfortunate. But, we do have a little more detail about what’s ahead in the final episodes – especially concerning Hope and Klaus.

Danielle Rose Russell opened up in a new interview about how Hope’s life and relationship with Klaus is going to change for the remainder of the season.

“I think that’s something that the fans are going to enjoy a lot, this relationship,” she shared with TV Guide. “She gets to explore with her dad now without limits anymore.”

Danielle continues, “They’re kind of getting to know each other still. They haven’t been in each other’s lives very often and Hope really needs her dad. So, they’re kind of getting to know that dynamic and know each other, but it’s really sweet, the dynamic between Hope and Klaus.”

“It ends up being very family-oriented, the show, kind of towards the last… four episodes that we have left,” she notes. “The dynamic between Hope and Klaus being explored in these next couple episodes I think will really bring a lot of warmth to peoples’ hearts.”

The Originals returns next Wednesday on The CW.

Danielle Rose Russell‘s Hope is blaming Elijah for her mom’s death on The Originals in tonight’s episode.

“She’s definitely in the anger stage right now,” the actress shared with TV Guide. “Her anger obviously manifests itself in very explosive ways.”

And Elijah is in direct view of those explosive ways.

Danielle continues, “When she sees Elijah for the first time, really this entire season, she does end up taking out a lot of how she’s dealing with herself, with her mom and with him too. He didn’t mean to really kill her, but he ultimately ended up being kind of the nail in the coffin.”

She also opened up about how heavy her scene with Daniel Gillies, truly is.

“The scene itself is definitely emotional. There’s a lot of anger, there’s a lot of hurt, there’s a lot of betrayal and sadness, on both parts — at each other and within themselves,” she says. “And you see that in the preview, Hope kind of explodes. But it’s very deep-rooted emotion.”

The Originals airs TONIGHT, June 20th @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.

Fans are still trying to deal with Hayley’s death on The Originals, when showrunner Julie Plec dropped another big bombshell on us all – there are more deaths coming.

Just after this week’s episode, which featured a lot of good flashbacks with Hayley, she revealed that there are more waiting for us in the back half of the season.

“After tonight, there are five episodes of #TheOriginals left before the end of its run,” Julie shared. “There are about as many significant deaths coming.”

She adds, “I know you’re mourning, and it’s going to be hard, but there is some real beauty, love and peace to come too. Buckle up.”

Sorry, not ready for this.

The Originals is back next week with another new episode on The CW.
