The return of the hit TV series “The Originals” season 4 draws nearer. With this, things may start to look grim for two of the show’s key characters.

The show’s latest spoiler hinted of the troubles Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) and Elijah (Daniel Gilles) will be facing. The two, along with the rest of their team, face a powerful opponent in Hollow. Furthermore, Hayley is still reeling from the death of Elijah. Also, she will reportedly try to attempt to bring him back to life.

The trouble, however, is that the couple’s on-screen relationship may be “doomed” to fail. This is according to Gilles in an interview with TV Line. The actor shared that the two will no longer be able to “ever extricate themselves from what they are” in the fourth season. He stressed that Haley will always be the mother of Klaus’ child. The actor also said that Elijah “always be murderous monster in a suit.”

He further went on to dissect the two characters’ relationship, saying that despite the fact that they are being drawn to each other, their “first instincts” will still take over. He said this will result to the two having the need to resist each other.

Meanwhile, speculations suggest that the upcoming episode, titled “Phantomesque,” will revolve around a perilous mission. This particular mission will put the lives of Hayley and Klaus’ long-lost half-sister, Freya (Riley Voelkel), in danger. Moreover, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) will reportedly ask for the help of his estranged siblings, as Hollow and his ever-growing powers threaten his family.

His siblings will respond, though Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic) will be put in a very difficult spot of choosing whether he will let Davina (Danielle Campbell) go or do everything in his powers to reunite with her again.

“The Originals” Season 4 Episode 10 airs June 2 on the CW and is also directed by Gilles himself.
