‘The Originals’ season 5 trailer: An older Hope and the Mikaelsons’ last hurrah

Say it isn’t so! I’m just getting over my Vampire Diaries withdrawal, and The Originals season 5 trailer is reminding me that yet another one of my favorite shows is coming to a close.

The new trailer shows us a teenaged Hope and the Mikaelsons reunited for what could be their demise. For those that are caught up (spoilers!), last season ended with the family spread all across the world in order to ensure Hope’s safety. If this season is anything like the previous ones, we all know that some sh*t is about to go down—and we might lose someone we love because of it. (Please don’t kill Elijah or Haley… please!)

Speaking of…the new trailer also hints at Haley’s new love interest (hey, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do). What the trailer doesn’t tease is Caroline and Klaus—but we all know it’s coming (Hope was sent to Caroline and Alaric’s “school for the gifted”). Candice Accola (Caroline) and Joseph Morgan (Klaus) have teased their reunion on social media, and fans hope the show keeps the details of this under wraps. Personally, I prefer to be surprised. Plec and Co. have always been brilliant with reveals, and I’m looking forward to the final one for this vampire-universe.
