A show about The Originals isn’t exactly complete unless all five siblings are involved, right? Sure Kol and Finn are dead, but that’s never stopped the story before.
If there’s one rule in the world of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, it’s that just because a character is dead, that doesn’t mean they’re gone for good. This seems to hold true especially in The Originals‘ storyline, where voodoo plays a significant role in the plot. It begs questions about the two (three, if you count the youngest, Henrik, but he died before becoming a vampire) deceased Mikaelson brothers Kol and Finn. Will they return on The Originals?
It would seem that since the show is about the original vampire family, it would only make sense if all the siblings were incorporated into the plot somehow. We’d take flashbacks, though it would be a bittersweet reunion if they found themselves reunited for real in New Orleans. If Genevieve can do it, then so can Kol and Finn, no doubt.
If you’ll remember, Kol was by far the more prevalent of the two, who were introduced during Season 3. Kol was killed by Jeremy (Steve R. McQueen) and Elena (Nina Dobrev), but he still continues to make appearances throughout the series. He played a large role in Season 4 and actually just showed up in the veil for a chat with Matt on the last episode of The Vampire Diaries.
Finn has not been seen as much as Kol, but that doesn’t mean Finn couldn’t return with his brother if the right spell were cast. He is the second oldest behind Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and was killed by Matt in Season 3. In a lot of ways, Finn is the opposite of his brother Kol. He is reserved and calm, unhappy with the urges his bloodlust drives him toward.
The odds of the family coming back together this season are slim, since Rebekah (Claire Holt) is out of the picture until further notice. But we could definitely see the other siblings coming out of their coffins to see Klaus’ (Joseph Morgan) little bundle of joy once it arrives. They could enter the land of the living with some Harvest spell-style loophole, perhaps. That little baby is going to need a lot of protecting, thanks to the turf war that is heating up on the show right now. Who better to guard the hybrid infant than family? If they can be trusted, that is.
