The Originals: Klaus and Caroline Reunite in First Season 5 Photos, Plus Hayley Bonds With Teenage Hope

The Originals Season 5

We’re not ready to say goodbye to The Originals, but we’re definitely ready to say hello to Caroline Forbes.

As previously reported by TVLine, the Vampire Diaries character will play a vital role in the CW drama’s upcoming final season — largely as a mentor to Klaus, who still hasn’t gotten a grip on this whole “fatherhood” concept yet — and now, we have our official first look at the long-awaited “Klaroline” reunion.

This new batch of photos also introduces us to Roman (played by Descendants‘ Jedediah Goodacre), a vampire who takes a special interest in Hope, and even gives us a glimpse into Hayley’s relationship with her now-teenage daughter.

The Originals kicks off its final season on Friday, April 20 at 9/8c. Browse our gallery of Season 5 photos — you can click here for direct access — then drop a comment with your thoughts below.
