Will The Originals Baby Hope begin showing her powers now that she’s back with her family!

In The Originals mid-season finale “The Map of Moments” baby Hope was reunited with her parents, Klaus and Hayley, then Rebekah volunteered to help take Esther down.

After Esther’s spell put Rebekah into a witch in the insane asylum, with other crazy witches, Klaus killed Esther (again). With Rebekah’s vampire blood in her system at the time of her death, Klaus gave her a choice or dying or becoming a vampire.

According to executive producer Michael Narducci, we’ll learn which decision Esther made in the mid-season premiere.

Bottom line for baby Hope is it looks like she’s returned home, or close to it, for good. Or at least the rest of the season.

In the mid-season premiere “Gonna Set Your Flag on Fire” Klaus takes Cami to the safe house where Hayley, Elijah, and baby Hope are. Will Cami and Elijah be Hope’s protectors? Or will Hope’s emerging powers be their protector? According to executive producer Michael Narducci, it may be a little bit of both!

We want to explore what makes the child of Klaus, a hybrid, and Hayley, a werewolf, completely different from any other child on this planet. You’ll begin to see certain signs – subtle at first, then maybe not-so-subtle – in terms of how this baby is something completely unique.

Way back before season 1, Joseph Morgan said there would be a new kind of supernatural creature. Was he talking about Hope? Her blood healed her mother, Hayley, and made her a hybrid. When Tyler crossed over from The Vampire Diaries in season 1 he revealed that her blood could be used to make hybrids.

Did Hope inherit her Grandmother Esther’s powerful witch powers, too? Since Esther was one of the most powerful witches on the planet, baby Hope’s witch powers could be astronomical.

With Dahlia coming, they’ll need all the power they can get, especially Klaus. According to executive producer Julie Plec, Klaus with go head-to-head with her.

Dahlia is described as manipulative, wicked, spiteful, and devoted to witchcraft. Like Qetsiyah and Esther, she may be one of the “most powerful witches in history.” Could Hope be more powerful. We’ll have to wait and see!
