Hope. When you look up the definition, here’s the definition, “a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen.”
When Baby Hope was born to Hayley and Klaus, there was something about that baby that gave me hope for this show. Not that the show was bad, it wasn’t. But let’s face it – Klaus had little to no humanity and I pretty much thought that he was going to go on a blood bath through the city, with no purpose, but his own gain.
But then there was Hope, and Hope reigned supreme. The change in Klaus was something that became visible, endearing, and well – overwhelming. The person that you thought you knew was gone and instead was a man fueled by a purpose other than his own greed. Suddenly, it was okay to fall in love with the man that you could only hope that everyone you loved would be like. They would have the purpose of family, the purpose of protecting the ones they love, and the purpose of Hope.
I can’t even begin to describe just how exciting it is that Klaus and Hayley are going to see Hope. I think that they both have gotten somewhat lost, but re-finding their purpose will only fuel this show more.
I can’t wait for December 8th. Here’s the synopsis for the “Map of Moments.”
A HOLIDAY REUNION — When Rebekah (Claire Holt) notices an unusual change in Elijah’s (Daniel Gillies) behavior, she asks Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) to meet her at their safe house, reuniting them with baby Hope. After reliving memories of being the odd man out, Kaleb (guest star Daniel Sharman) opens up to Davina (Danielle Campbell) about his resentment towards his siblings and sheds some light on a spell he created in 1914. Meanwhile, when Cami (Leah Pipes) discovers Esther’s (guest star Sonia Sohn) plan will put her life in danger, she demands answers from Vincent (guest star Yusuf Gatewood), who remains steadfast in his convictions. Elsewhere, Esther makes an unlikely alliance that could prove dangerous for Klaus, and Hayley makes a decision that could change her relationship with Elijah forever. Lastly, while Elijah continues to struggle with the lingering effects of being captured, Rebekah and Klaus devise a plan to take their mother down once and for all. Leslie Libman directed the episode written by Marguerite MacIntyre & Julie Plec (#209). Original airdate: 12/8/2014.
