It will be several months before the premiere of The Originals Season 4. However, spoilers and theories keep coming out. One question fans have is if Klaus and Marcel will reconcile. Is it possible or has too much damage been done?
Spoilers and theories are ahead. If you don’t know what could happen on The CW series, then stop reading.
As fans know, Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) will wake up from his agony-induced coma. However, the details of when are not known at this time. One theory fans of The Originals have is that Marcel Gerard (Charles Michael Davis) will have no choice but to wake Klaus because of a strong enemy. If that is accurate, then that foe could be the new big bad in Season 4. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the new villain will be a vampire that has a centuries-old beef with Klaus.
Recently, it was revealed by executive producer Julie Plec that this villain is not the first to come to New Orleans wanting Klaus dead. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the executive producer said that a lot of people have come with hopes to see Klaus reduced to “nothing but ash.” Is it possible that Marcel putting Klaus in a tomb may have ultimately saved his life? It sure doesn’t seem that way, especially since his goal was to punish the vampire. However, it is still a possibility.
“The indignity of Klaus Mikaelson’s situation the last five years [is being] held captive by his surrogate son and forced to be an advisor to a king that he does not recognize. Also, [he knows] Marcel is actually singularly responsible for the fact he’s alive, because so many people have come to town in the last five years desperate to see him reduced to ash.”
There is one more person coming and that is the new vampire who is supposed to be quite powerful. He is not only strong, but is also being described by TV Guide as sadistic. Even though he comes to New Orleans to settle his grudge with Klaus, he latches onto Vincent (Yusuf Gatewood) first.
So, can Klaus and Marcel ever reconcile in The Originals? It doesn’t seem likely, but there is a chance that they can co-exist in a civil manner. The two will probably battle the new big bad together. Not because they want to, but because they will have to in order to save everyone in New Orleans. They do have a long history together and Klaus thought of Marcel like a son. It is understandable why Marcel felt justified in his actions. Even Klaus realizes this, but it doesn’t change what he did. In the end, they might be civil, but things will never be like they used to.
Other spoilers for The Originals Season 4 were released at Comic-Con 2016. Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) will be still searching for a cure, five-years later. Hope is no longer a baby, but has grown into a 7-year-old girl. Some fans believe that Hope will redeem Klaus. There is also the concern over whether Hayley will be able to find a cure and save the Mikaelson family. Does that cure lie within Keelin or will that lead her to another dead end?
What do you think is going to happen with Klaus and Marcel? Is there any hope for a reconciliation or has too much damage been done? Can Hayley save the Mikaelson family? What kind of roles will Hope and Keelin play when the series returns next year? Fans will just have to wait to find out what will happen next.
The Originals Season 4 is due to premiere on The CW network in early 2017.
