If you’re as obsessed as we are with the intense familial drama going on in The Originals, the last thing you’re thinking about is the Season 1 finale. When will we have to pull the plug on this season of the Vampire Diaries spin-off? Read on to find out!

Per a press release from The CW, the Mikaelson drama will come to its shocking conclusion — at least until it resumes this fall — on Tuesday, May 13. We’re not ready to say a temporary farewell to Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and the rest of the New Orleans gang just yet, especially since things are more tense than ever.

When Season 1 began, it seemed like a cut-and-dry war between the many different groups in NOLA: the humans, vampires, werewolves, and witches. But as the season has progressed, the fabric that was the “Always and Forever” Mikaelson family unraveled at a wickedly fast pace.

Things are more dire now between the supernatural faction — and now that the hybrid baby is on the way, we'll have to wait and see if the witches are successful in sacrificing her to their ancestors. And with the werewolves rising up in the penultimate episode, our furry friends will probably make everything more complicated. We can’t even imagine what will happen in the finale!

Thank goodness we know there’s going to be a Season 2.
