Throughout The Originals Series

In The Devil is Damned, Freya finds out from Finn that her brother Niklaus had a daughter, much to her shock. She then helps Finn find Hope so as to prevent Dahlia from coming after them. In I Love You, Goodbye, once Freya has brought back Finn, she explains that Dahlia will sense Hope as her magic will serve as a beacon in calling Dahlia. In They All Asked For You, Freya meets her brothers Klaus and Elijah for the first time and tells them that the threat to Hope came from Finn, not her and that Dahlia will sense Hope and will kill anyone who gets in her way unless they all worked together. In Save My Soul, Freya tells her brothers that Dahlia wants more power and to become truly immortal and that is why she's after Hope. In City Beneath The Sea, Freya informs Elijah she will use Hope as bait to lure Dahlia to her death and is working on a locator spell for Hope and her mother. When she locates them she goes to leave but Elijah grabs her, injecting her with Hope's blood, switching the bait from Hope to Freya. In Ashes to Ashes, Freya awakes after Klaus neutralizes himself and Dahlia to see Hope's car seat in front of her. When Elijah arrives, Freya is holding and bouncing Hope in her arms. Freya comments that Hope is resilient. After Dahlia is destroyed by her mother Esther, Freya is seen living with Klaus. She is going to help him raise her niece.

In For the Next Millennium, Freya is seen caring for Hope at various times in The Abattoir. Freya tells Elijah that Hope is getting bigger by the second. She tells him that she can help bring Hope to Hayley during the next night's full moon. Elijah tells her that it isn't necessary and that Freya needs a night off. When Klaus enters the room and the two brothers exchange angry antagonistic words, Freya gets between them and tells them to take it somewhere else. Elijah leaves and Freya tells him that he'll drive the entire family away like that before she returns to Hope. Later, Elijah calls Freya, who is partying at Rousseau's, and asks her to watch Hope while he runs an errand. Freya teleports to the bayou and Elijah speeds away. Freya asks Hope to excuse her because she's had a few "big girl drinks" before Hope nods off. In You Hung the Moon,

In Keepers of the House, In The Feast of All Sinners, Freya is willing to sacrifice everything for Hope and she is even willing to become a vampire in order to let her niece be with her mother. After the ritual, Freya gives a necklace with the Mikaelson crest, that Rebekah gave her before, to Hope, saying that family heirlooms are very important because they remind us where we come from, and that no matter where we go, our family is with us. Then Freya says goodbye to Hayley and Hope and sadly watches them as they leave.

In Where You Left Your Heart, Freya attempts to reason with and comfort Hope after arguing with her mother about being suspended from her school. However, Hope's friend Henry shows up as a newly-turned hybrid who killed a vampire accidentally (according to Henry himself), which complicates Hope, Freya and Hayley's situation. Later on, Freya hands Hope her phone and allows Hope to talk to Klaus for the first time in seven years.
