Hope Mikaelson may be making her way to Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted sooner than we first thought.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly at ATX Festival over the weekend, the creator of the series was asked about whether there would be any more characters crossing over.
"Alaric (Matt Davis) and Caroline (Candice King) are running the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted where Hope Mikael...," before adding quickly: "Shit never mind.Keep watching!"
It all seems pretty telling, and did sound like a genuine slip of the tongue, but TV execs have been known to misdirect the audience.
Something tells us, the young Mikaelson may get a scholarship when you consider just how much Klaus invested into the school when he heard about it.
Hope's power has been growing stronger on The Originals Season 4, and it's likely going to get to the stage in which she can't control it.
On The Originals Season 4 Episode 11, Hayley opened up about her thoughts on the crazy things the Mikaelsons do in order to make sure they live another day.
While Hayley admitted, she had done some terrible things to keep everyone safe, she cautioned that she would need to remove Hope from the situation.
For storyline purposes, sending Hope to the school would be a good idea. It could open up a lot of new storylines as she mingles with Lizzie and Josie while meeting other children who are gifted.
There's a good chance that Inadu will be removed from Hope's body before The Originals Season 4 ends, and the family will likely make the decision to send Hope off to Mystic Falls.
Plec had been open about the possibility of the magic school spinning off into its own show, but we're sure we'll get to see some of the plot playing out on The Originals Season 5.
With Klaus being vocal about his love for Caroline, might this also open up a way for Klaus and Caroline to start a relationship?
There are just two episodes left in the current season of the supernatural drama. Surprisingly, Kol and Davina were given a happy ending on The Originals Season 4 Episode 11.
Will the other characters be that lucky? Couples never last on this show, so it was satisfying to witness Davina and Kol disappearing into the night.
What do you think about all of this?
Sound off below.
Note: The Originals Season 4 Episode 12 airs June 16 on The CW.
