Additional Interviews

To save Hope, witch Vincent comes up with a plan to split the Hollow and place each piece into the bodies of four Mikaelson siblings. But that means Klaus, Elijah (Daniel Gillies), Rebekah (Claire Holt), and Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic) will have to stay away from each other — for eternity. “This is an instance where the Mikaelsons are forced to ask themselves: Would they do the right thing for Hope and the world at large even if it meant saying that we’ve come to an end of our vow to protect one another as siblings as we have for the past thousand years?” Narducci explains. “The idea was always to put them in a dilemma where they had two impossible choices. One impossible choice is to sacrifice Hope and the other impossible choice is to say goodbye to one another.”

“The promise of always and forever, as beautiful as it sounds on the surface, is often, for our characters on this show, a justification to do what they think they need to do, consequences be damned, collateral damage be damned,” executive producer Michael Narducci says, who wrote the finale, tells EW. “Here we are in season 4 after a five-year time cut and we’ve met a now 7-year-old child who is able to bear witness to their behavior and she can decide for herself what is good and what is bad and she’s not someone who is accustomed to making these bad decisions or justifying these bad decisions.”

This finale episode is both heartbreaking and heartbreakingly beautiful. For fans that are tuning in, who might be afraid of what to expect from it, what would you tell them to brace themselves for?

NARDUCCI: That’s a great question. I understand the passion that the fans have for these characters, but it is a television show and these are fictional characters. Ultimately, all of this entertainment and all of this story, the person that I want it to affect is the audience. The emotions experienced by the characters, of course, is important within our fiction, but at the end of the day, you turn the television off and however the story has affected you should inform your own life. I want people to watch this and think about what they would do in these situations, and to think about their relationships with this siblings, their parents, and their children. Ultimately, I want them to think about love and loyalty and family, and what kind of promises we make to one another. Hopefully, some of what they see the Mikaelsons endure will reverberate in their own lives. That’s the true goal of any writer, so that’s my hope

He continues, “And then he discovered that he’d created this child with Hayley, and we really took him on a journey. He became someone who would sacrifice himself for five years or more of torment and solitude in order to protect the people that he loves. And this season, we got to see him being a dad. Joseph was phenomenal this season. I was really blown away by him, and I’m going to miss working with him very much.”

How are the Mikaelsons going to take the news that they have to be separated in order to save Hope?

Michael Narducci: I think that is a big part of the drama of the episode. Every single one of them will have a different episode. In fact, their perspectives are pretty unique to each of the characters. There are complications to the spell that Vincent wants to do, such that it's not immediately clear who will be the four volunteers who have to be a carrier to The Hollow as they divide it, draw and quarter it.

Freya, realizing that she may need to be a part of this in order to make certain that neither of Hope's parents will be separated from the child she loves and that she loves, is willing to make a pretty terrible sacrifice, which will be revealed over the course of the episode. Without saying too much, I'm really looking forward to the fans' reaction to Elijah's point of view, Klaus' point of view, which is basically, "I'm going to do whatever I have to do for my daughter," and Rebecca, Hayley. Everyone is going to have a different perspective. There are wrinkles to Vincent's spell that we will unpack over the course of the episode that make things more and more complicated for the Mikaelsson family.
