Smoke On The Water revolved around whispering final goodbyes to Hayley Marshall but if next week’s episode’s promo tells us anything it is that we’ll be seeing more of Phoebe Tonkin. We’re not sure if she’ll be resurrected or if she’s going to be visiting Hope’s memories or Freya’s magic bubble, but we’re just happy we’ll be getting to see her.
When Julie Plec killed Hayley Marshall off, it did hurt bad. Hayley’s death, like Camille’s, left fans shook. A character who had been a part of the show since day 1 was buried all of a sudden. For those of you who are skeptical about Phoebe making her way back to the show, the Australian actress has herself told TV Guide, “without giving too much away, my final scene [of filming] was with my daughter Hope.”
She further added, “Hayley’s journey throughout all five seasons was to protect her child, and it was nice to wrap up the show that way too.” We wouldn’t expect too much, however. If Hayley would be brought back from the dead in the next episode, it would probably be to die once again. Because from what Phoebe told TV Guide next, you could conclude just that.
The 28-year-old said that we might not be lucky enough to see Hayley Marshall in The Originals’ spin-off, Legacies. “I think Hayley’s story was properly explored both over the course of The Vampire Diaries, and over the five seasons of Originals,” said Phoebe. “I think Legacies will have its own new adventures with its own new characters and storylines.”
Well, we really don’t think there’s any such thing such as ‘enough of TO’s characters.’ Let’s hope at least some of the characters, primary ones, make their way from The Originals to Legacies. We’d love a continuation even!
