The Originals Season 1 Finale Extended Promo — “From a Cradle to a Grave” (VIDEO)

Is it next Tuesday yet?! We can’t wait another week to see the Season 1 finale of The Originals, not with everything that went down in last night’s penultimate episode. Luckily, we now have the extended promo to help past the agonizing days. What did we learn from the promo for Season 1, Episode 22 (“From a Cradle to a Grave”)?

The 30-second promo is sans dialogue (well, besides Klaus screaming and miracle baby crying). Instead of the traditional TV preview, it is a beautiful-if-not ominous series of visual beats set to music.

  • First, we see Klaus throwing open the doors to the church where the witches are holding Hayley hostage as she gives birth. It doesn’t look pleasant.
  • In the next shot, we see Davina raising her arms up as she stands in front of a red sports car. (Rebekah drove out of town in a red car. Just saying — it could happen.)
  • Elijah walks into a room (the church?), covered in blood.
  • Marcel kisses Davina on the forehead.
  • Hayley holds her baby in her arms and looks up at Klaus who is pinned up against the church’s wall, screaming.
  • Elijah drops to his knees and goes to touch something Klaus is holding — presumably, the baby. But where is Hayley? The promo ends with the sounds of a baby crying.
Yikes! This episode looks heartbreaking and we’re still not even sure what is going on in any of these scenes. We’re just going by the emotion oozing out of each frame. OK, now is it Tuesday yet?

The Originals airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
