The Originals: Season 5 Reviews

October 8, 2018
With the dysfunctional family having reunited and mended rips in the earlier episode at Freya and Keelin's wedding, the finale of The Originals could have ended with vigor. Instead, the finale is representative of the final season - a slow desiccation.

All things considered, this was not the series finale I expected nor one that I think the fans deserved. It was filled with pacing issues and random developments in the name of bringing some closure to some of the plots.

The bendable but unbreakable Mikaelson bond is the driving force behind every storyline on The Originals.

Danielle Rose Russell is extremely likable as Hope, and the cliffhanger of Klaus coming home and what that could mean feels like a good note on which to launch the final season.

When The Saints Go Marching In brought The Originals to a momentous close with plenty of love and loss among the Mikaelson clan.
