The Originals: Joseph Morgan pitches his ideal series finale with Daniel Gillies

Posted on

Of all the Mikaelson siblings, Klaus and Elijah arguably have the most history, if only for the fact that Elijah has been daggered the least of his siblings (though he’s still been daggered far too many times). And with that history comes a lot of ups and downs. Currently on The Originals, it’s safe to say they’re experiencing a “down” period.

After Klaus killed Gia and trapped Hayley in the body of a wolf, Elijah turned his back on his brother. And even though they’re sort of working together now, their relationship is far from repaired. According to Daniel Gillies, he doesn’t think it will ever be as the show is built on their dysfunction. 

With that in mind, Joseph Morgan has the perfect idea for how the show should end: Elijah and Klaus kill each other in a sword fight.

The Originals airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
