Hope is Klaus’ weak spot!
At the beginning of the season, Klaus is boring and unbearable to watch and this is because he has a daughter.
Ha Ha Ha!! Scratch the above: I was just pulling your legs. We have a new Klaus and I’m loving him; he wouldn’t have been possible without Hope.
Episode 03 of The Originals’ 4th season dealt more on expanding on the new man Klaus has become in the face of his daughter. She’s his redemption, and as such, his Achilles heel. Worst thing is, I can’t imagine what sort of monster Klaus would morph into should anything happen to Hope; I don’t want to imagine it. But then, this kind of devotion makes you wonder what would happen with the series moving forward. If Klaus continues down this redemption path the series would become boring to watch. That’s why in episode 07, when Alaric Saltzman showed up and mentioned about his school for gifted children to Klaus, I was happy. That tiny scene provided the perfect destination should the threat of The Hollow come to an end. There’s no safer place for Klaus to drop his loving daughter off than at the school run by the one immortal girl Klaus has vowed to wait for no matter what; his epic love, Caroline.
So, while we rejoice that Klaus might have found his redemption, his anchor to humanity, do not worry about the series becoming boring because Hope will be shipped off once her mission is complete.
