We knew going into the Season 1 finale of The Originals that the body count might be through the roof — and we were not let down. As Season 1, Episode 22 (“From a Cradle to a Grave”) came to a close, we had said goodbye to a slew of characters. Which French Quarter residents bit the dust tonight and won’t be seeing Season 2? Read on to find out!
Warning: If you have not seen the Season 1 finale of The Originals, turn away now!
Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) were pretty pissed at the witches for stealing the hybrid baby and letting Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) die, and they set out to interrupt their plans to sacrifice the newborn to the ancestors. Hayley, who woke up transitioning to a hybrid (since she died with the baby’s blood in her body), joined the two brothers, using her mommy superpowers to help locate the site of the ritual.
After a huge fight between the crew and the witches, the bodies were piling up. Not only did Monique (Yasmine Al Bustami) bite the dust, but so did Abigail (Alexa Yeames). But perhaps the hardest-hitting death was Genevieve (Elyse Levesque), who died at the hands of Hayley.
So there you have it. The death count for the Season 1 finale of The Originals consists of three witches. Perhaps we should be more worried about who came BACK to life tonight. Right?
Are you surprised Genevieve bit the dust tonight? Hit the comments and sound off!
