Vincent ends this hour by wondering how we could ever know if, at any given point in time, we’re at the end of the beginning or the beginning of the end. But for Originals fans, we know our fate: This episode is quite literally the beginning of the end. This season is the end of a story that began eight years ago, when Elijah Mikaelson — and his amazing hair — sauntered into that abandoned house and first laid eyes on Elena Gilbert, the latest Petrova doppelganger. Later that season on The Vampire Diaries, we’d go on to meet Elijah’s brother, Klaus, and from there, the story of the Original family was born. Now, after countless betrayals, deaths, and one very dramatic birth, we’ve reached the final story, and it all begins tonight.

The season premiere picks up seven years after the season 4 finale — which saw Rebekah, Kol, Elijah, and Klaus part ways in order to separate the Hollow’s magic and keep Hope safe. So far, it seems they’ve kept their vow to protect Hope, though it has taken its toll. There’s Klaus, who now goes by “Klaus the Mad” as he wanders through France ripping out hearts and traumatizing passersby.

Then there’s Hope, who’s living life at Caroline and Alaric’s Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted, and I’m not going to lie, just seeing the Salvatore house (and knowing that Stefan and Damon aren’t inside) made me tear up. Furthermore, seeing its hallways filled with teens in uniforms was…weird. (Imagine all the snarky comments Damon would have about that.)
