The Originals creator on the series finale: "I can’t see it having ended any other way"
When asked if fans would be upset with the series finale, creator and executive producer Julie Plec responded: "Yes and no. I can’t see it having ended any other way. Therefore, it’s the ending. Joseph Morgan felt exactly the same way. We’re telling a story about two immortal beings — what do you think the ending is? The ending is freedom from immortality. Looking at it subjectively, that’s the inevitability of this kind of show. I love that fans love this character so much. They’ve had more than seven seasons of television to be in love with these characters. It’s been a beautiful relationship between the fans and Klaus, specifically. And I just really like closure."
