The Originals Season 4 will begin differently. Instead of focusing on Klaus (Joseph Morgan), Elijah (Daniel Gillies), Rebekah (Claire Holt), Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic), and Freya (Riley Voelkel), the CW series will feature other characters. However, the Mikaelson family won’t be gone forever. Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) is determined to find a way to save Klaus’ siblings while he lays comatose in a tomb. How will Hayley do this, especially since she is on the run with baby Hope?
Warning: The Originals Season 4 spoilers are ahead.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the Mikaelson prophecy was fulfilled on the Season 3 finale of The Originals. This was a shocking end to the season and nobody expected it to happen. While Klaus ended up in a coma due to intense agony and pain, Marcel locked him in a brick tomb. As for the other Mikaelson siblings, they are in caskets, which Hayley loaded into a moving truck. Hayley took her daughter, Hope, and the two are on the run.

So, what will happen in Season 4 of The Originals? According to a theory by International Business Times, Hayley might save the Mikaelson family with help from her dead husband, Jackson.
“The best guess would be that Hayley seeks her late werewolf husband Jackson’s (Nathan Parsons) help to solve the puzzle,” IBT wrote regarding how Hayley can save the Mikaelson family. “Considering her current relationship with Elijah, it would be interesting to see if her late husband would give his blessing for her to be with the vampire.”
Now, the next paragraph suggested that The Originals might bring Jackson back. However, I have a different theory. On The Vampire Diaries, Elena took a special concoction so she could visit Damon, who was dead. She took it so often that Elena was not going through the grieving process. In fact, she almost resembled a drug addict for a while. Could the TVD spinoff show do something similar? It is a possibility. Also, consider what The Originals executive producer said about Season 4.

“There were hints in the finale of what Hayley’s next move is going to be,” Michael Narducci told TV Line. “I don’t want to say too much, but I don’t think it’s outside the realm of possibility that Hayley will look to find a way — either by using her own vampire power or by using a witch — to try to communicate with [everyone in the dream world]. She has a giant puzzle to figure out in order to cure everyone, and given that they’re dying from a wolf bite, I think you can guess who she might turn to.”
Hayley is a hybrid, which makes her a unique character on The Originals. It is considered both a blessing and a curse, something Hayley struggled with for a long time. It seems that to save her vampire family, Hayley will turn to the werewolves. As International Business Times wrote, the potion is powerful because of the werewolf venom, which comes from several different packs. However, she will also communicate with everyone through her dreams. Narducci made it sound like Hayley would need a witch to help her do this and it sounds a lot like what happened with Elena after Damon’s death on The Vampire Diaries.
What do you think of this theory for The Originals Season 4? How will Hayley save the Mikaelson family? Will viewers see Hayley take a concoction similar to the one Elena took after Damon died? If she does manage to save the vampires, will there be any consequences?
The Originals Season 4 does not have a premiere date yet, but Julie Plec said to expect it on The CW in early 2017.
