It was recently announced that THE ORIGINALS’ upcoming fifth season would be the show’s last, which means that this year’s appearance at Comic-Con will be the final panel.
To introduce this milestone, The CW has released a sizzle reel highlighting the show and hinting at what’s to come. In chronicling the Mikaelson’s “always and forever” promise, we know that this vow has been broken by forces outside the family. When the Hollow took over Hope and threatened to take her away from the family, Kol, Rebekah, Elijah and Klaus each took a part of the Hollow into themselves and promised to stay away from each other forever, lest the power of the Hollow come back if they were in close proximity again. This saved Hope’s life but forced the siblings apart.
Now, as we can see at the end of the video below, a teenage Hope is determined to reunite her family. But we suspect that her quest will be extremely difficult. The Hollow could return and the siblings have the problem of Elijah’s erased memories to overcome as well.
THE ORIGINALS will return midseason on The CW.
