Now that Klaus is a father, what would he do in different situations as Hope grows up?

The Originals season 1 finale of “From a Cradle to a Grave” had the traumatic birth of Klaus‘ and Hayley’s daughter, which he decided to name Hope. Hope for the future, hope for the Mikaelson family, and hope for Klaus‘ redemption.

Entertainment Weekly recently asked Joseph Morgan about what he thought Klaus might do in some situations that all fathers have had to deal with at one time or another as their children have grown up! The game was called “What Would Klaus Do: The Fatherhood Edition”!

1. If Hope is crying and needs fed at 3 am and Hayley is asleep, what would Klaus do?

A. Joseph thinks he’d call fast food delivery, then drag the delivery guy up to Hope’s bedroom and feed him to his daughter.

2. Klaus wants a night out, maybe with Marcel, but Hayley’s out, too. So who does the babysitting?

A. In the interview Joseph suggested Davina, since she’s the age of most babysitters. He thinks she’d treat his compound with respect and not have a party. “I think it would have to be her,” he said with a laugh. However, if Rebekah is back, I think he would probably pick her instead!

3. Klaus finds out Hope is being bullied at school, so how would he deal with it?

A. He doesn’t think Klaus would deal very well with it. He’d call Uncle Marcel and the two of them would go to her school and “have a word with the bullies”! You can figure out what that would be! Joseph revealed that they’d make examples of the bullies, and their families, the friends of their families, and anybody who has ever known their families. Ouch! Kind of like Damon and the Whitmore family on The Vampire Diaries!

4. Hope is arrested for drinking under the age, so what would father Klaus do?

A. Joseph thinks Klaus would pass the buck to Uncle Elijah. If she’s in jail, he’d ask Elijah to get her. After being used to her Dad ranting and raving, she’d ignore him, but she wouldn’t want to be a disappointment to her Uncle Elijah. With him she’d probably cry a lot, but she’d listen.

5. Hope starts dating and brings a boy home. What does Dad do?

A. Joseph laughed and said, “Eats him!”

6. If Hope goes to Mystic Falls for a visit, is there anybody she’d stay with?

A. He’s not sure who would be safe for her to stay with. Aunt Jenna would be great, but she’s dead. Uncle John would be strict, but he’s dead. Definitely not Tyler Lockwood! “I knew that was going to come back and bite him,” Joseph laughed. “The trouble is, all the good ones are dead.”

After thinking some more, he decided Stefan would probably be the best because he and Klaus “go back a long way.” All the way back to his “rippah” days!
