Will Haylijah prevail? ‘The Originals’ season two returns on Jan. 19, and we’re all wondering if Elijah will stop Hayley’s wedding to Jackson before it’s too late. Here’s the scoop!
It’s a tough life for Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin). With The Originals returning, she’s forced to make a huge decision — say “I do” to Jackson (Nathan Parsons), the man she can have a happily ever after life with? Or figure out a way to make it work with Elijah (Daniel Gillies) after that extremely steamy hook up? And then there’s always Klaus (Joseph Morgan). Oh the decisions this girl has!
‘The Originals’ Winter Premiere
“There will be some emotional turmoil for Hayley,” the show’s EP, Julie Plec told our sister site TVLine. Well obviously — she’s engaged and just had a seriously hot on-the-table hook up with a man who also has her love. “She’ll have to decide: Does she tell Jackson? Does she not tell him? Does she go through with this wedding, even though she’s in love with another man?”
But then there’s more questions if she does in fact marry him: “Can she love Jackson, who’s such a good person and cares about her so deeply? And, ultimately, what comes along with having to marry Jackson? What will she have to give up, and what could put them in danger?”
Where Does Klaus Fit In?
We can’t forget that Hayley does have another man in her life — the gorgeous Klaus. Even though the feelings aren’t there, they’re not really gone either.
“I don’t think anything is ever completely off the table,” Julie said. “Right now, Hayley is torn between two men, so to throw a third one into that mix is a little complicated. But they do share a child and a history, and in the long run of the series, you never know. There are relationships you plan for, and then there are relationships you discover along the way. So they’re one of those that you just watch, wait and see if there’s a fun story to tell there.”
Anyway, to hold you over, you can rewatch the Haylijah scene from the winter finale that we waited what felt like forever for. Then let us know, do you think Hayley and Elijah are endgame? Do you think Hayley will end up marrying Jackson?
