“The Originals” Season 4 Finale Explained By Departing Showrunner, Shares Spoilers About Elijah’s Future, Marcel’s Hold In New Orleans In Season 5

Still reeling about the Season 4 finale of “The Originals”? To recap, Vincent planned to separate The Hollow into four separate parts, which each inhabiting the body of an undead who has ties to Hope. While it was successful thanks to Kol fulfilling a family duty as a Mikaelson, the family ended up going on their separate ways to avoid empowering The Hollow and return to the world of the living. Despite of that, the Mikaelsons each did have their happily-ever-after, either pursuing a dream or ending up with their loved one.

Departing showrunner Michael Narducci shared to TVLine that the finale should not deceive fans about the fate of the Mikaelsons, especially Elijah, who has since had his mind wiped out (and his blind loyalty to Klaus). He said, “Elijah seems to have established himself as a musician. Music is something for Elijah, just as painting is something for Klaus. I thought it was a nice idea that Elijah would go somewhere that means a lot to him. Some aspects of his identity still remain, and it took a little bit of time for Klaus to track him down. And now they have to be divided for good… Without giving anything away — and without knowing what the writers have planned — and I would be stunned, and I will eat my words, if Klaus and Elijah never see each other ever again.”

Bustle said it was a heartbreaking scene when Elijah didn’t recognize his brother when the latter paid him a visit at a French village. While Elijah will no longer feel love, pain, loyalty, or Mikaelson drama due to his erased memories, time will always draw him into his family back.

On the other hand, Narducci wished for Season 5 to flesh out the turnover of New Orleans by Marcel to Vincent. He added, “Marcel says that it might be time for a new king, so he basically gives the keys to the person he trusts most with the city that he loves, and that’s Vincent. It was a great moment, and I was super bummed out that we lost it. So whether the writers are going to address that moving forward, I look forward to with bated breath.”
