Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) has not forgotten his vendetta against Klaus (Joseph Morgan) in the upcoming final season of “The Originals.”
Spoilers for the new installment reveal that the former allies will once again be each other’s greatest enemy. Marcel is obviously still not over his hatred for his sire after what he and his family did to Davina (Danielle Campbell). Although their fight was put on hold because of The Hollow, it is expected to continue now that the dark force is safely locked inside the Originals’ bodies. The trailer hinted of Marcel’s next plan to take down Klaus, and it may or may not involve Elijah (Daniel Gillies).
Since Elijah was one of the Mikaelsons who holds part of The Hollow’s soul, he is supposed to stay away from the rest of his family for all eternity. He has willed himself to forget everything to stop himself from searching for them. Marcel appears to be taking advantage of his predicament. He will come to see Elijah to urge him to return to New Orleans and reunite with his brother. The promo suggests that Marcel will succeed, thus the surprise on Klaus’ face when Elijah suddenly turns up in one of the bars in the city.
Meanwhile, spoilers reveal that there is still a chance that Elijah and Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) will end up together. Executive producer Julie Plec has revealed that they are still rooting for the couple. Although Hayley and Elijah may not be together in the first part of the final season, they may still end up with each other in the end. While waiting for that moment, Hayley will try to distract herself from negative thoughts by dating a human named Declan (Torrance Coombs).
“I love Hayley and Elijah and I do hope they can find peace in eternity,” Plec told the audience at the San Diego Comic-Con. “I don’t know how quickly that will be able to happen, but it’s not something that I take lightly.”
“The Originals” season 5 will air sometime in 2018.
