We’re officially on Baby Watch 2014, you guys! Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) is ready to give birth in next week’s Season 1 finale of The Originals — too bad she and her unborn babe are in the clutches of the witches. Season 1, Episode 22 (“From a Cradle to a Grave”) will see the birth of Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Hayley’s baby, though it’s still too early to tell if the newborn will survive the hour.

In the promo for next week’s climactic episode, we have very little dialogue, with the baby’s cry the only thing we hear. The images we see, however, are pretty powerful. Both Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Klaus seem to make their way to the church where the witches have Hayley, though it looks like the suit-wearing brother gets a lot closer to Hayley than Klaus, who we see pinned against the wall.

While we’re definitely worried about the Mikaelsons and Hayley, there’s plenty going on in the French Quarter to deal with besides this miraculous birth. Not only is Josh (Steven Krueger) on his deathbed, but Davina (Danielle Campbell) is ready to resurrect Mikael (Sebastian Roché). And that’s without even mentioning the revolution boiling in the werewolf community. Woof!

It looks like we’re in for a very dramatic end to the show’s freshman season after all.

What do you think will happen in the Season 1 finale? Hit the comments and start speculating!

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