On Season 2 of The Originals, Klaus and Hayley are on a mission — and you better not stand in their way.
During the Season 1 finale, Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) gave birth and was immediately killed, only to wake up as a hybrid. But with the baby's life at stake, Hayley, along with Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies), made the heartbreaking decision to give baby Hope to the only person they could trust with keeping her safe: Rebekah (Claire Holt). But for both parents, the devastating loss will be their drive and purpose when the show returns.
Hope took on a new meaning by the end of The Originals Season 1 finale.
After being kidnapped by the witches, Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) gave birth and was immediately killed. Fortunately, she had her child's blood in her body and was reborn, but this time as a hybrid. By the end of the hour, Hayley, along with Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies), made the heartbreaking decision to give the baby, aptly named Hope, to the one person they could trust with keeping her safe — Rebekah (Claire Holt). With her new supernatural form, and after losing the only family she's ever known, Hayley will be at rock bottom when the series returns.
The Originals' Klaus is about to become a baby daddy, but will that change anything in the villainous vampire?
"I hope so," Joseph Morgan tells TVGuide.com. "There is certainly potential for it. If Klaus sees the baby or gets to hold the baby, I don't know if it'll make him go more in that [nurturing] direction or send him the other way. I can see him not being able to handle it. With him becoming a father it's interesting to see how that affects his bloodlust."

Question: I'm sure you have tons of letters in your mailbag about the "twist" on The Good Wife. For once, this was not over-hyped at all. I've always stood by the idea that the creators of shows are artists who have the right to do whatever they want with their characters, and we should be more angry with gratuitous plot twists or inconsistent character development than things that just make us sad. It is a "melodrama," after all, and entertainment does not mean that you will be made happy all the time.
Fans were shocked earlier this month when The Originals star Claire Holt suddenly exited the show before the end of Season 1. Though some speculated that Rebekah Mikaelson's story line had run dry, Holt set the record straight at Saturday's PaleyFest event.
The Originals shocker: Which series regular has left the show?
"I wasn't pushed out," she said. "I didn't quit midseason. This was something we discussed form the start. I made a life choice, not a career choice. I made a choice to come home for a while. I realized I hadn't seen people that I loved and cared about for a while. It was so tough for me."
