You didn't think Hayley's funerals would go off without a hitch, did you?
The Original family isn't new to heartbreak and on The Originals Season 5 Episode 7, they barely had a chance to grieve Hayley, the most beloved hybrid in New Orleans, before things went awry.
Her Second Line funeral, a traditional procession in NOLA, was crashed by Greta's deranged Nazi-minions. It was to be expected.
And while her wolf ceremony was more intimate and emotional, it was mostly overshadowed by a brand new prophecy slapping them all on the wrist for two Mikealson's being in the same place at the same time.
It's no secret that whenever any of them are in close proximity, weird things start happening.

Well, apparently, slithering snakes and blood rain is nothing compared to the final phase; if they keep it up, they are going to kill all the firstborns in town including Hope and Freya.
They just can't win, can they?
This new version of the prophecy did provide us with some great moments between Klaus and Hope.
Elijah: You listen to me, okay? Anything happens to her, I won't ever forgive this.
Klaus: One doesn't need forgiveness from enemies. And that's where we are, you and I. We're certainly no longer family.

I can't say I'm too thrilled with teenage Hope and all her angst.
She lashes out at everyone because she blames herself for her mother's death, and while her pain is understandable, at times, the teenage hysterics are too much.
She shouts at Klaus for not being there for her when she knows damn well there's nothing more he could have done.
Eventually, Hope comes to her senses, begins to understand the intensity of the danger she's in, and vows to restore the promise of "always and forever."

Considering we're nearing the end of the series, it's about time we go back to the basics of what this show has always been about: family.
However, the fact that Hayley won't be around when all is said and done is still something that's weighing heavily on me.
I didn't expect to be so emotional when Klaus begged the "little wolf" to tell him what his next move should be, but there was something so pure and innocent about this big, bad vamp admitting that he's lost without her.
This family, hmm. We're a curse to each other and to our home. And I know she needs me, I see that now. But loving her brings her closer to death. A..
