I'm a tribrid. The only one of my kind. No one can represent my interests but me.
Hope to Alaric in Malivore

Hope Andrea[2] Mikaelson is a main character in Legacies, and she was a former major recurring character in The Originals before being promoted to a main character in the fifth season. Hope is the tribrid daughter of Niklaus Mikaelson and Hayley Marshall-Kenner. She is the granddaughter of Ansel, Esther Mikaelson and two unnamed werewolves, as well as the step-granddaughter of Mikael. She is also the niece of Freya, Finn, Elijah, Kol, Rebekah, and Henrik Mikaelson, and the grand-niece of Dahlia. She is also a distant relative of Lana, Eve, and Cary. She is the adoptive younger sister of Marcel Gerard via her father. Due to his marriage to Hayley, Jackson Kenner was her step-father for almost a year, until he was killed by Tristan de Martel.

She was named Hope by her father, who took inspiration from his half-brother Elijah's words about his newborn child being their family's hope. Her middle name is Andrea after her mother's birth-name and she takes the surname of her father's side.

Hope was conceived in The Vampire Diaries season four episode Bring It On, and it was revealed that Hayley was pregnant four episodes later in The Originals. She was then born in The Originals season one episode From a Cradle to a Grave. As a result of her unique heritage, she is the world's first werewolf-witch-vampire hybrid. She inherited her werewolf gene from both of her parents, while her vampire and witch legacy came from her father who is the Original vampire-werewolf hybrid and the son of the Original Witch. Through her mother's Labonair lineage, Hope is werewolf royalty.

In From a Cradle to a Grave, Hope was sent away to be raised by Rebekah, in order to protect her from her father's enemies: the Guerrera Wolves, Esther, and Dahlia. Her death was faked to protect her. However, in season two's The Brothers That Care Forgot, Esther had found Rebekah whilst she is with Hope at the park, this is signified by the presence of starlings. At the end of the second season, Hope is living with Hayley and Jackson (stepfather by marriage) in the Bayou, and by the end of the third season, she is living with Hayley on the road. By the fourth season, she lives with Hayley and the Mikaelson Family at the Abattoir.

After having the Hollow's spirit separated into four members of her family, she and Hayley leave for Mystic Falls. She becomes a student at the boarding school and as time goes by, she becomes determined to see her father again, despite the consequences that could ensue.

Hope is a member of the Mikaelson Family, the Labonair Family, the Kenner Family, and an unnamed family of werewolves. Hope is by birthright a member of the Crescent Wolf Pack and the North East Atlantic Pack, as well as an unnamed witch family, and the only child fathered by the Original Hybrid.

Throughout The Vampire Diaries Series

Season Four

In Bring It On, Niklaus Mikaelson and Hayley Marshall slept together and conceived a child.

Hayley's child

In The Originals, the witch Sophie Deveraux revealed that Hayley was, in fact, pregnant with Klaus' child. Klaus refused to believe it until he used his enhanced hearing to hear the child's heartbeat. Sophie revealed that the baby is one of Nature's "loopholes". She later revealed that it was because of Klaus' werewolf side that Hope was conceived. Sophie then demanded that Klaus help her or she would kill the baby and its mother.

Klaus initially had no interest in having anything to do with the child, even telling the witches they made a mistake if they thought they could use Hayley and their child as leverage to manipulate him. He dismissed the child's existence and acted as though he didn't care if it lived or died. After some words of consideration from Elijah Mikaelson, and an-exchange from Camille O'Connell, he later changed his mind about the child. When Elijah asked him about Hayley and their unborn child, Klaus replied to him that "every king needs an heir."

Throughout The Originals Series

"I won't lose that baby."
Klaus about his daughter.

In Always and Forever, Elijah tells Sophie that he believes this child will be a way for Klaus to finally be happy. Sophie is glad he feels that way, as she blackmails him. If he gets Klaus to co-operate with their demands, since Marcel Gerard already drove the werewolves from the French Quarter, nobody will have to know of the existence of a hybrid baby. In a later phone conversation with Rebekah Mikaelson, Elijah swears he will not let anything happen to the baby.

In House of the Rising Son, when Rebekah arrives in New Orleans looking for Elijah, she meets Hayley, commenting her "supernatural, miracle baby bump" isn't showing. After a short conversation with Niklaus about the whereabouts of their elder brother, Rebekah takes Hayley to the basement of their house, showing her the coffins, before warning her to get out of New Orleans while she can, because once the baby is born, Niklaus will be "planning a coffin for her." Hayley comments that the witches cast a spell; if she leaves New Orleans, she and the baby will die. Rebekah's words clearly affecting her, Hayley heads to Jardin Gris, inquiring wolfsbane in an attempt to abort the baby. She sits on a bench at night, pouring the poison into a cup of tea, urging herself to drink it. She is about to drink when she hears rustling behind her. Vampires appear in front of her, saying wolves aren't welcome. Hayley, fed up of being told what to do by vampires, tosses the cup at him and attempts to flee. Rebekah suddenly shows up, ripping the heart out of one of the vampire's, and snapping the neck of the other, saving Hayley's life. After Klaus hears of Hayley leaving the house, he berates her and demands to know what she was doing. In a rage, Hayley growls that she wanted to put the baby out of it's misery, a comment which Klaus begins to choke her over, showing he clearly cares for the baby. The day after, Klaus slowly walks into Hayley's room whilst she is supposedly sleeping. He notices the bottle of wolfsbane and sniffs the top. Hayley then tells him that she didn't use it, Klaus asks her why, as she could have been free from "all of this." Hayley says that when she was being attacked, she wasn't just protecting herself, she was protecting her child and she didn't want to let anyone hurt it.

A girl.

In Tangled Up In Blue, Hayley is walking by the pool at night, and she suddenly looks up to see herself face to face with a wolf. Sabine Laurent suddenly appears and tells her that the wolf is drawn to her because of the baby, before telling her that she knows some charms that can reveal the baby's gender, admitting that it is not magic that she will be using. Later on, Hayley is lying on a kitchen table with Sabine dangling a pendant over her stomach. She tells her that she thinks it is a girl, this excites Hayley. Hayley suddenly becomes serious and says "don't tell me I'm having a mini-Klaus" before Sabine drops the pendant and gasps, repeating the same sentence leaving Hayley confused at her words. Sometime later, Klaus walks into the room whilst Hayley is seated on her laptop, and she reveals that she thinks their child is a girl; unseen to her, Klaus smiles at the news. As he leaves, Hayley is seen typing the sentence Sabine repeated onto her laptop.

Rebekah realizes that the baby can heal Hayley.

In Girl in New Orleans, Agnes persuades Hayley to go to a doctor out in The Bayou who agrees after a notice of Rebekah who told her that she must care most about her child. The doctor tells Hayley that her child is healthy and Hayley reports that she knew it and that her daughter is a tough one, just like her. Then a wolf howls and Hayley understands that she falls into an ambush led by Agnes. However, she kills her doctor and manages to escape to the warlocks and fight them off until Rebekah eventually comes to save her. However, they are both then shot, and Hayley goes missing. When Hayley shows up later, she has forgotten what has happened but believes that a wolf is looking after her, and has killed the witches after her to protect her. Her wounds have also all healed and is revealed that her baby has healed her due to its vampire healing blood, inherited from her father, Klaus.

In Sinners and Saints, Hayley questions Sophie about the fact that her child will be the witches' end.

Hayley in pain because of the Needle of Sorrows.

In Fruit of the Poisoned Tree, while Hayley speaks to Elijah after what happened to her and the baby during his absence and that they decide to find a way to unlike her to Sophie, Agnes enacts a plan to kill the child, by using the link between Sophie and Hayley. She uses a cursed object, The Needle of Sorrows, to cause Hayley's temperature to spike rapidly to cause a miscarriage. While Klaus goes to find Agnes, Sophie works with Elijah and Rebekah to lower Hayley's temperature and heart rate, until Davina, through Elijah's machinations, could unwittingly severe the link between Sophie and Hayley, saving the baby's life. Later Elijah kills Agnes for trying to kill his niece.

In Bloodletting, it is revealed that the baby's blood is capable of turning werewolves into hybrids. However, the hybrids created are sired to its mother - likely due to it and her being the same for the time being. Tyler Lockwood kidnaps Hayley and tries to kill the baby, as he believes that Klaus desires to use the baby to sire a second army of hybrids. Klaus scares him off, however, Tyler then goes to Marcel, and informs him of the baby's existence, and that its abilities will prove a threat to the vampire kingdom.

In The River in Reverse, Klaus mentions how he believes that his child will grow up calling Elijah father because of the way Hayley adores him and how his siblings don't believe that his intentions toward his child are pure. He later states that his child is all that matters to him now.

In Reigning Pain in New Orleans, Klaus tells Marcel how the witches forced him to help them take down Marcel by threatening to kill his unborn child. He goes on to mention how at the beginning he didn't care for his child, but after remembering how Mikael despised him since birth he had a change of heart because he doesn't want to end up being exactly like his father was to him. Elijah also reveals that descendants of Klaus' father are still alive (Cary is a descendant), therefore meaning relatives of the child as well.

In Après Moi, Le Déluge, the baby becomes part of the plan to complete the Harvest, and also to prevent Davina Claire's power from destroying all of New Orleans. Using the fact that the baby is alive, and therefore able to own property, the Original vampires bury and consecrate their mother's remains with Kieran's help and Esther becomes a New Orleans witch. As her children, The Originals act as a conduit of her magic, so then Sophie can channel the power.

Elijah uses Hayley's/the baby's blood.

In Dance Back from the Grave, while Rebekah is prisoner forms a spell cast by Papa Tunde, Elijah bites Hayley so he can use the power of the baby's blood to unbalance the spell as the baby is revealed to be a Quarter Witch as well.

In Crescent City, Céleste states Elijah has a niece on the way. Giving viewers a second confirmation on the sex of the baby.

In Long Way Back From Hell, Elijah justifies his choice to save Hayley because the baby that she's carrying.

In Farewell to Storyville, Rebekah says to Hayley that the Mikaelson Family has many enemies, and that when she is born she will inherit all of them. She also says that, though Niklaus is a dangerous person, there is hope for him, and the baby is a focal point of that. Finally, she asks that Hayley tells the baby stories of 'her crazy aunt Bex' and, despite her absence, she really does love her niece.

In Moon Over Bourbon Street, Klaus tells Jackson he counts on the werewolves sense of unity to protect his unborn daughter. Elijah and Hayley also express their concern for the safety of the baby. Elijah suggests to Hayley to come back and live with him and Klaus. Hayley, however, declines his offer.

Hayley feels her baby kick.

In The Big Uneasy, Klaus tells Elijah that, while he feels Hayley and the baby will be better protected in The Bayou with the Crescent wolves, he will bring Hayley back before she goes into labor. Klaus wishes the baby to born in the compound. The child later kicks for the first time onscreen when the wolves are telling campfire stories, and Hayley happily puts Jackson's hand on her belly so he can feel. Monique Deveraux later tells Genevieve that the baby must die in exchange for Genevieve's life.

In An Unblinking Death, there is an explosion in the Bayou. Hayley nor the baby get hurt. However, Klaus is upset by the attack on his child and suspects that Genevieve is behind this. Genevieve says she has nothing to do with it, she's not a monster.

The baby in Klaus' nightmare.

In A Closer Walk With Thee, Klaus goes to Father Kieran O'Connell's funeral. When he walks into the church the coffin is closed. He looks confused at everyone who's sitting there and opens the coffin. When he opens the coffin he sees a baby lying in it. He smiles at the baby and tries to pick her up, but someone drives a stake through his heart. When he turns around he sees that it's Mikael. He then wakes up and realizes it was a nightmare. He later tells Cami O'Connell that he dreams of Mikael because he's afraid of becoming a father, he doesn't need a psychologist to figure that out. But Elijah has also been dreaming of Mikael and they realize something else is going on. At Kieran's funeral Hayley starts coughing up blood and faints thanks to a spell Monique Deveraux had cast. Klaus, Elijah and Genevieve take her to the compound. Elijah can't hear Hayley's heartbeat, but only that of the baby. Genevieve tries to save her by using magic. Klaus gives Hayley his blood, but it doesn't work. Klaus then tells Elijah he won't lose that baby and he wants to deliver the baby now, but Elijah stops him. Genevieve agrees with Elijah, if they deliver the baby Hayley will bleed to death.

In the mean time we see that Hayley is on the other side with Mikael. She doesn't understand why she can see him, but then she realizes the only reason why she can see him is because she is dead. She screams for her baby, but Mikael tells her it's too late to save the atrocity that's festering in her womb. She tells him she can't really be dead, because otherwise he wouldn't try to kill her and the baby. He tells her the baby is doomed anyway with a father like Klaus. She responds that her daughter has one advantage Klaus never had, she will never know Mikael. She then wakes up thanks to Genevieve's spell and tells Klaus and Elijah that Mikael tried to kill her. Later Hayley is sitting in her room in the compound when Klaus walks in. He tells her that she proved to be quite resilient, fighters, both her and the baby. She tells him that she decided to move back in. Klaus is happy to hear that and tells her that he only wants that the child is kept safe. She asks him what will be come of her once she gives birth. She fears Klaus will try to take their daughter away from her. Klaus asks her to follow him, he wants to show her something. He prepared a nursery next to Hayley's room. He tells her that whether she believes it or not he would actually like it if she's there with him. He wants their daughter to be raised by her parents in her family home.

Klaus and Hayley in a flashback.

In the debut of From a Cradle to a Grave, we see a flashback of Hayley and Klaus which situates between A Closer Walk With Thee and The Battle of New Orleans. She writing a letter for her daughter when the baby starts kicking. Klaus asks her how the littlest wolf is doing. She asks him if he wants to feel her kick. He puts his hand on her belly and smiles when he feels his daughter kick. They smile at each other and he then leaves Hayley alone to continue with her letter. She explains to her daughter that she writes a letter to her because she never knows her own mother and she wants that her daughter knows how much she is happy to have her. How her parents can't wait and she promises to her three things: a safe home, people to say how they love her every day and people to fight for her, no matter what. Hayley concludes her letter by saying "I love you. Your Mom."

In The Battle of New Orleans, Genevieve subdues Hayley, this causes the placenta to abrupt and Hayley starts having contractions. Hayley is brought to St. Anne's Church by the French Quarter Coven. Genevieve and Monique Deveraux inform her that they plan on sacrificing the baby for The Ancestors. Hayley starts screaming in terror and tries to fight the witches, swearing that they will not take her baby and she will kill all of them. Klaus hears her screams and screams in agony.

Hayley gives birth to Hope.

In the present time of From a Cradle to a Grave, Hayley has been taken to St. Anne's Church by Genevieve, Monique Deveraux, Abigail and a few other witches. Hayley's placenta has ruptured so she has to give birth to the baby there. She tries to fight the witches when Klaus walks in. He kills one of the witches, but Genevieve, Monique and Abigail stop him. He watches as Hayley gives birth while he is held against the wall by the witches spell.

Once the baby is born Hayley asks if she could hold her. Genevieve hands the baby over, but Monique slits Hayley's throat only a few moments later. Monique breaks Klaus' neck and they leave with the baby. The witches have taken the baby to the cemetery, where they plan to sacrifice her. Klaus and Elijah try to find them, but they had cast a spell that creates the illusion of a maze. Elijah is heartbroken that Hayley is dead. They are unable to find the baby when Hayley walks in. The blood of her daughter brought her back to life, she is in transition. She can feel her daughter and she leads Klaus and Elijah to the witches.

And as long as the baby lives people will try to kill her. Genevieve starts bleeding out of her eyes as the ancestors are coming for her since she failed them. She asks Hayley and Elijah to tell Klaus that she is sorry. Hayley stabs her with the knife Genevieve wanted to use to kill her daughter and she tells Genevieve that's she is not sorry. Elijah and Hayley then leave the cemetery to return to Hope.

Hope with her family.

Hayley is holding her daughter in the nursery while Elijah and Klaus discuss what to do next. Klaus thinks that his daughter will never be safe, no matter where she is. He doesn't want her to grow up in a prison. Hayley tells them there's another option. Hayley's parents thought they could protect her, but in the end they were killed and Hayley spent her childhood alone and unloved. She made a promise to herself and her baby that she would grow up differently. She thinks the only option is to send their daughter away, while they stay behind and clean up the mess that they've made. Elijah doesn't agree, she'll be haunted no matter what. Klaus tells him that won't be a problem if nobody knows that she lives. Hayley says goodbye to her little girl and drinks a bit of her blood to complete her transition. Elijah tells Klaus that nobody will be able to protect her like them. Klaus tells him there's one person who can. We see Klaus holding his daughter waiting on an abandoned road. Another car drives in and Rebekah steps out of it.

Elijah and Hayley say goodbye to Hope.

Rebekah tells him that she looks like her mother, and that maybe there's a god after all. Klaus smiles at her. He responds that there's a glimpse of the devil in her eyes and that is all him. He tells her that despite their differences there is no one that he would trust more with the life of his daughter. He tells his daughter that the people in the city would have seen her dead, but he would see her live and he'll make the city her home. He says that he would struck down anyone who would dare to wish her harm. And he tells her that she'll return to him. He then gives her a kiss on her forehead and on her cheek. He hands her over to Rebekah. Rebekah asks him what her name is. He tells her that her name is Hope. He cries as he watches Rebekah leave with Hope.

Auntie Bex and baby Hope

In Rebirth, Hope is living with Rebekah. She tells Hope a fairy tale based on her father and New Orleans. In this fairy tale, Klaus is the King and due to many enemies he is forced to send his princess, Hope away. However, Rebekah tells that one day the King and his noble brother will heal their kingdom and bring Hope back who must live happily ever after. Afterward Rebekah puts Hope to bed and paced Klaus' wood knight in her cradle. Hope is also mentioned by her parents and uncle in New Orleans. When Elijah tries to clean up Hope's nursery Hayley gets pissed off about him and orders him to stop. However later she destroys the nursery after killing Francesca because she needs her daughter back and nothing can soften her pain. Later Klaus confesses to Elijah that all is his fault and that he should have accepted Hayley's pregnancy - and now his daughter is away from him. He then goes try to comfort Hayley who tells that without her daughter she can be in peace and Klaus swears that she will have Hope in her arms again.

In Alive and Kicking, Hope's parents spoke about her during their trip in The Bayou. Hayley explains that she can't be the Queen of the werewolves because she is destroyed - she cries all day, each day and can't stop thinking about how much she misses Hope. Klaus says that he knows how she feels and Hayley accuses him of not think about Hope. Klaus answers that he thinks about her every time and can only be eased by killing those who would hurt her. This leads Hayley to find her wolf people. Earlier Hayley also feeds from witches because they tried to kill Hope. It's also shown that Hope's newly resurrected grandmother doesn't know that her granddaughter lives.

In Every Mother's Son, Hayley says that she will be glad to kill Esther as she wanted to kill Hope. However, when Klaus tells her his mother's story, Hayley comes to understand a little about Esther, because she is out of her mind about having to give Hope to Rebekah and can't imagine if her child was dead. This was why Esther lived when Hayley meets her. And later Esther proposes to switch bodies and Hayley thinks about it because she wants to give a normal life to Hope.

In Wheel Inside the Wheel, after a day of discussion with her son (and the resurrection of Ansel), Esther does not understand why Klaus continues to refuse her offer of switching bodies. Annoyed by his mother's questions about why he still scorns her Klaus ends up spinning her against walls in Elijah's cell and tells her that he only feels a pure and intense hatred about her as she came after his child, his daughter, his and also her blood. Esther tries to reason with Klaus, but he gets only more angry and repeats "my child". She then tries to use magic but Klaus seems only be affected by it during a few seconds, still focusing about Hope. He then tells to her mother that to be coming after Hope he will make her pay as only himself can do - as his mother's son. It's also revealed that to have children, Esther deals with her older sister Dahlia (as at this time she has stopped using magic). But in part of the deal, Esther will have to give to her sister every first born of each generation of her bloodline, which includes Hope as the first and only grandchild of Esther. And this is the reason of why Esther wanted to kill Hope - but it's still unclear if she also tried to do it to "save" her granddaughter from Dahlia.

In Chasing the Devil's Tail, Ansel explained to Klaus that he knew that his child is alive - as he can feel the call of his blood as the wolf. He also said that he wanted help Klaus to protect her, but fearing that Esther will use Ansel to get to his "little girl" he explained to his father that he cannot fail his daughter and must protect her to all the cost. And Klaus finally killed his own father as he didn't want that his selfish wish of a father made his daughter in danger. Later, he awakened Elijah by speaking about Hope - as in the children's history they are monsters, but not his Hope's. In Hope's story their are knights and that without Elijah, Klaus can't survive to his own love for his child. Elijah finally emerged and comforted Klaus about Ansel - telling that for Hope all the sacrifice can and must be made.

In The Brothers That Care Forgot, Rebekah takes Hope to the park. Rebekah is pushing her on the swing when she notices her mother's starlings staring at her. Rebekah believes her mother has found them so she rings Elijah. Elijah meets with Rebekah in the diner and he holds Hope. Rebekah notices a worrying change in Elijah and when she goes to give Hope a diaper change she sees he has killed people in the diner. So she puts Hope in her carrier and she snaps Elijah's neck to keep Hope safe.

In One Wrong Turn On Bourbon, she listens to music as a flashback shows her using magic to contact her father, but is told to go away. She notices the flowers on her nightstand shrivel and die, and knows that her father is at the compound. She runs so that she can see him, but he senses her and leaves, leaving her disappointed. After waking up to get ready for the day, she hears something at her window and it's Roman. She invites him in and they began talking about Henry and her leaving. She later goes to Rousseau's and sees that Declan is being attacked by her father, and stops him using magic.

When Freya notices the ancient spells on the floor, Hope tells her it's to catch up. They talk and walk around the grounds, and Hope notices Roman playing a soccer game with others. When Roman waves at her, she doesn't and Freya asks why. She tells her it won't harm his ego and then explains about the spells on the floor to her. She says she wants to find a way to break the cloaking spell and find her mother. They head to an abandoned house and they try to do a spell, but Hope's palm heals quickly. She then notices that Freya already knew about it and her reluctance. She is then told by Freya that the witches think she'll destroy New Orleans. She gets angry at Freya and when telling her to leave, she uses pyrokinesis and then puts it out. She then sees that Freya was right about the first-borns of their family having devastating power. She then looks out the window at night and Roman appears. She tells him about her mother and what she found about from Freya about what the witches in New Orleans think. They are then interrupted by Freya and he walks off, leaving them to talk more.

In Don't It Just Break Your Heart, she is seen practicing climbing in the abandoned house and talks to Freya about triggering her werewolf side. Afterward, she goes to her room and finds Roman inside. She tells him about triggering the werewolf side and he tells her about desiccating in a cave for an unknown amount of time.

In What, Will, I, Have, Left, she and Roman are on the road acting goofy and talking. She feels that she's being tracked by a witch and gets out of the car for a few minutes. She decides to put both of their phones on the ground and they continue to their destination. They arrive at the abandoned Shiloh Place and notices he's acting somewhat agitated. She watches as he knocks over a glass, causing the barrier spell to deactivate. She walks in and no sooner, she sees her mother strapped to a chair. She runs to her and wonders why she's at the house, turning around to have Roman place the witch shackles on her, canceling her powers. She asks him what's going on and Hayley tells her that he's the one who led the others to her in the church attic. She then realizes that Roman got into her head to find out her mother's location and is shocked to find out Greta is his mom. She tells her mother about Henry and listens as she is told what Greta wants to do with her and her mother, given their hybrid status, clearly upset. While Roman is outside on the phone with his sister, she talks to Hayley, telling her she was going to go through with the binding spell until Klaus stopped her. She listens when her mother tells her about turning into a wolf and they think of a plan. She watches as Hayley goes through with the binding spell and while Hayley kills the witch, Hope breaks Roman's neck. They began to go out the door before Hope realizes that Hayley can't as she's just a vampire and doesn't have a daylight ring. She listens as her mother tells her that purists are afraid that she'll unite the factions one day, telling her go and they embrace. As Hope turns around to go, Greta appears in front of her and blows some dust on her, knocking Hope unconscious.

In God's Gonna Trouble the Water, she wakes up in her dorm room while Freya is watching over her and wonders where her mother is, and cries when she finds out she's dead.

At the compound, she is very upset and is angry at her father for not being there. When he tries to talk to her, she tells him to go and pushes his astral projection out. Later in the evening, Hope goes to the Bayou for her mother's funeral and tells Freya they have to save their family.

She listens as Freya gives her eulogy and as her mother's body is lit on fire, she tells her goodbye. She is then surprised to see her father beside her and a storm begins to ensue. She tells him she's going to fix it and while crying, she tells him she loves him too, watching him leave.

When he tries to talk to her, she starts magically bending a fork and quickly walks out. She begins to paint and tells her father that she's fine and starts hearing the voices in her head again. She gets upset when the voices won't stop and Klaus decides to put her old bracelet on, trying to seal away the dark magic inside her temporarily. Unfortunately, the bracelet begins to burn her skin and she takes it off, which causes the bracelet to catch on fire. She decides to go to Rousseau's to talk to Declan and sees that Elijah is there. She angrily wonders what he's doing and he tells her to knock Declan unconscious as he knows things are going to get worse. She tells Elijah she hates him and he says he hates himself too, her eyes temporarily glow the blue color the Hollow had, and magically claws him repeatedly on his body. Klaus arrives and at the compound, she tells him that the voices stopped when she began to commit the violence against Elijah. He tells her that if the violence helps, then he's the right person to come to.

In There in the Disappearing Light, she is trying to feel better by taking out her anger against Klaus, but she says it isn't working and he isn't the one she wants to take her anger out on. While underneath the Abattoir, Hope gets ready to torture Roman since he was one of the people responsible for her mother's death. Roman tries to tell her he's been wanting to talk to her and that while he's sorry for what happened, she doesn't have to forgive him, and she listens to this. She then gets angry when Roman tries to compare his mother to hers, and she wonders what's happening to her as marks begin to creep up on her arm. She goes to Klaus about what's happening and while he tries to tell her to kill Roman, she doesn't want to and she frees him. After Elijah and Antoinette gather Emmett and his vampires, Hope comes in and releases all the dark magic, killing them all. Unfortunately, the blast also injures Declan and she is fearful she might've killed him, which would trigger her curse. As she and Roman talk, she tells him to leave and she begins to feel pain, and her eyes glow, triggering her curse due to Bill's death.

In Til the Day I Die, she is at the cemetery laying a flower on Bill's memorial, Klaus comes to see her and he tries to comfort her but it doesn't work, she always feels bad. She says that what she did didn't help because the dark line is back and evokes the transformation she must do without her mother, Klaus offers his help but she answers that for now she needs to be alone, so he leaves her. Davina later comes to the cemetery to talk to her, she tells her that she is not well and that she doesn't want to attend Freya's wedding because her guilt will ruin the day but Davina retorts that it's her absence which will ruin the day and that even if it's hard she must live the moment. At the wedding, she was a speech on the fact that this day was the best because they were all together and she had the impression to be part of the "Always and Forever". In the evening when Klaus comes to see her in her bedroom to find out how she is doing, she answers that she is amused today, forgetting for a moment all the troubles of her life but will never forget that she killed someone, she also says that she is afraid of transformation and is glad that Klaus will be present.

In The Tale of Two Wolves, Hope has to await her first transformation and is told she may not survive the process due to The Hollow slowly killing her from within. After a day out with Elijah and a dance with Landon, Hope joins Klaus, Alaric, and his daughters as part of a ritual to extract the Hollow from her, which can only be done while she is in middle of transforming. While Lizzie and Josie are chanting, the transformation begins and Hope is brought to her knees from her bones breaking and pain resulting from it.

After reuniting with Alaric and Emma, Emma uses a spell to send an electric shock throughout the students and teachers to get the slugs out of them. After the talent show, Hope listens to Landon singing a song to her and happily enjoys it.

In There's a Mummy on Main Street, she accompanies Alaric, Emma, Dorian, Kaleb, Josie and Lizzie on a trip to Maple Hallows to retrieve the urn. While on the way there, Hope has brief arguments with Lizzie and when they arrive, she joins up with Josie and Lizzie to talk to the townspeople. After Josie is bitten and a boil appears, they see a swarm of locusts and go for cover in a shop. After the locusts disappear, they go to the sight where the FEMA team is helping the citizens. She avoids contact with the mysterious man she and Alaric met in Kansas and mentions this to him. She and Alaric are then confronted by the man and he shows his name as Ryan Clarke. He also reveals he knows about them being from Mystic Falls and Alaric's school for the supernatural. When Alaric strikes a deal with Ryan, Hope, Alaric, Josie and Lizzie head to town to confront the mummy that has caused the plagues. When Alaric, Hope and Lizzie are plagued, Josie saves them by using a fireball to destroy the mummy. They return to the sight and Hope talks to the group afterwards, with Lizzie arguing still with her. When it's revealed that the mummy hasn't been completely defeated yet, she watches as Lizzie and Josie siphon the scarab of the curse, thereby defeating the mummy once and for all. On the ride home, she and Lizzie talk more, and when Hope tells her that it wasn't her who did those awful things, they both look at Josie, who has a guilty look. After the ordeal, Hope wants to find out why Josie lied and when she hears that Josie had a crush on her, she is shown smiling.

LGC113-111-Hope.png
In The Boy Who Still Has a Lot of Good to Do, Hope learns that Landon, Rafael and MG have disappeared, she immediately thinks they are dead because her location spell doesn't work. Looking around the school with Alaric, they find Rafael but he doesn't remember what happened. Back in Rafael's bedroom, his traumatic state reinforces Hope's idea that something very bad has happened then Emma wants Hope to come out but in the hallway she's panic. When she comes back she really wants to know what happened, she prepares an elixir that would allow Rafael to have access to his werewolf memories what Emma refuses because she prefers to make the state of Rafael more calm. However Rafael makes Emma sleep and accepts Hope's solution. He tells what happened in Maryland and they find MG who's wounded in the woods, Rafael would have bit, it's also when seeing MG that Rafael remembers everything. MG killed Landon because he was very angry with him and was out of control. Hearing this, Hope is crying. Kaleb dreads the fact that Hope doesn't agree to cure MG but she does. Later she joins Rafael near the dead body of Landon, when MG joins them Rafael wants revenge but Hope stops him, saying that's not what Landon would have wanted. When Landon resuscitates, she's as surprised as the others.

In Let's Just Finish the Dance, Hope struggles with the trauma of witnessing Landon's death, which in turns causes her magic to become unstable, leading to her accidentally attack Landon in her room and then later Alaric in the gym while they train together.

While preparing the school for the Miss Mystic Falls Pageant, she's surprised at Roman Sienna's return. Unable to run, Lizzie asks Hope to enter the Miss Mystic Falls pageant on her behalf rather than Josie. Hope and Landon clash over his jealousy of Roman during rehearsals and her magic grows unstable. About to lose control, Lizzie grabs her and tells her to come with her. Despite her protests, Hope goes with her and they go to the Old Mill and Lizzie explains to her that she noticed the signs of her having a breakdown. She gets Hope to scream so she could get out her frustrations, something that ends up working.

As the day progresses, they talk more on the pageant before Landon appears, with Hope asking who should apologize in this instance and Lizzie tells her always the boyfriend in moments of jealously. Landon approaches her, making attempts to reconcile until he catches sight of a statue that is revealed to be MG's mom, to their shock - a new creature is on the loose on the Salvatore grounds.

Hope and Roman at the pageant.

Hope is practicing her answers for the pageant questions in the twins' room and is given a dress by Lizzie that belonged to Caroline. Before the dance, she meets up with Landon and asks if he is alright, noticing that he seems tense. Landon tells her that Penelope informed him about her keeping secrets from him regarding his mother. He asks her if it is true but she is unable to answer him, visibly shaken by this. Landon is upset that Hope has been lying to him and storms out. She is about to leave when Roman stops her and becomes her escort in Landon's stead. During the dance, she is still guilty about Landon and sees Josie and Lizzie argue, wondering why they are doing so. She has Roman tell her and is speechless to hear that the dress was a gift her father gave the twins' mother. Overcome with emotions, she nearly loses control of her magic, which would have exposed the school, but Lizzie steps in, again, and hugs her, covering her near outburst. Lizzie tells Hope to cry it out and Hope cries in Lizzie's arms.

Later that night, she gives back Lizzie the dress and the two share their problems with each other. They then make a pact, Hope will help Lizzie reconcile with Josie and in exchange Lizzie will help Hope fix her relationship with Landon.

In I'll Tell You a Story, Hope is concerned when Alaric shows her the voicemail Landon left previously for her. She is unaware that this voicemail was forced, however, she believes it to be strange that Landon would say hello to Jed, given their mutual distaste for each other. She finds it concerning that Alaric and Emma do not share her worries.

Later that date, in return for a prism that allows subconscious interaction, Hope helps bake a cake for Lizzie, and also gives her a book titled "The History of the Gemini Coven" to help aid Josie in her discovery of the Merge. She eventually asks her aunt Freya about the Merge, and shocked by what she hears, she tells Alaric that he should tell his daughters before she does.

Hope talks with her subconscious.

Hope later uses the prism numerous times, however, she is bemused by the results that the prism gives her. She believes it to be wrongly interpreting her feelings; she remarks that imaginary Landon is just as annoying as he is. Later, she uses the prism and interacts with "Landon" again, eventually revealing that she loves him, and was fearful that he would leave her — similar to how the rest of her family have. Eventually, her subconscious tells her that she knows he is in danger, and this prompts her to go looking for Landon.

In There's Always a Loophole,

The vortex attempts to suck Hope in

In I'll Never Give Up Hope, Hope is seen wondering cluelessly around Malivore having been consumed previously. She uses magic to light her way in the endless darkness, only to find that a vortex opens, sucking her in. Before she can be sucked in however, she is pulled back down into the darkness by Ryan Clarke. Believing herself to be dead, she questions what Clarke is doing in her Peace, but Clarke laughs, admitting that they are not at peace, nor are they in Hell, but inside Malivore. He laughs at the fact that Hope has wasted her life as she has not been able to destroy Malivore, but does reveal that her consumption has harmed him, allowing all of the creatures absorbed to roam freely within. Clarke tells Hope that he can help her, but she rebukes him and uses a mimic spell, forcing him to leave her alone.

Hope casts a calming spell.

Following this, another vortex opens within Malivore and tries to suck Hope in. Clarke tells Hope that the vortex will destroy her and begs her to break the mimic spell so that he can help her, to which she obliges. They are then approached by a dragon which attempts to kill them, but Hope is able to scare it away. Hope questions how long they have been in Malivore, but Clarke does not know and tells her that it could be a month or a year. The dragon returns and Hope jokes that she has vanquished one before, laughing at Clarke asking how a super-villain could be scared. Clarke admits that he has never been a villain, just a boy who was scared of his father and would do anything to get away from him. Feeling his unease, Hope casts a calming spell to alleviate Clarke's worries. Another vortex opens, and Clarke again prevents it from sucking in Hope, and the two are surrounded by Shadow Creatures, forcing Hope to make the two of them invisible.

The vortex is successfully able to expel Hope

Hope admits that she has figured out that a vortex opens each time she practices magic and the problem is that she has never fully activated her vampire side therefore cannot kill Malivore. Clarke agrees, admitting that Malivore is trying to expel her, but he will not allow Clarke to go and therefore closes the vortex each time he attempts to escape with her. He begs Hope to help him escape, but she declines and when the next vortex opens, she allows herself to be sucked up and released from Malivore.

A troll from Malivore comes after Hope

Hope finds herself outside of the Salvatore School, where she bumps into Dorian Williams, who questions who she is and if she is alright. She admits that she is but is looking for someone, with Dorian admitting that all of the students have gone home for the summer. With this, she lets herself into the school when Dorian is gone. Looking for Landon, she witnesses him kissing Josie in the woods behind the school, which causes her to cry. Feeling heartbroken, she buys a bus ticket out of the town and conjures up her subconscious to talk with Landon using the prism she has gotten from Emma. Her subconsciousness, in the form of Landon, tells her not to leave town as Landon would more than likely want to know about her. She agrees, but before she can safely return to the school she is confronted by another creature from Malivore.

In This Year Will Be Different, Hope tracks down the creature from the previous episode to Mystic Falls High School. She bumps into Ethan, and makes up the lie that she is looking for the Principal, and is shocked when Ethan points out that Alaric is the Principal. In his office, Alaric examines Hope's file — which he is unaware is fake — and tells her that she needs to enroll if she plans to stay in Mystic Falls. Alaric offers Hope support, questioning if she is alright, however she brushes him off insisting that she is fine.

She goes to the bathroom to collect herself and bumps into Maya, who offers counsel on her "boy troubles". She leaves the bathroom shortly after to follow the smell and again bumps into Alaric, who she throws to the ground accidentally, unaware that it was him. Alaric questions who she is and she reveals that she is a vampire hunter and Alaric remarks that he is well known within the hunter community. Alaric suggests that Hope leave the hunting to him as he has more experience, but she shrugs him off.

Whilst Alaric prepares his crossbow, Hope prepares an artificial sunlight bomb to use on the creature, who she assumes is a troll. The two meet again in the basement of the school when Hope saves Alaric after he is attacked by the creature. Alaric questions his instinct to throw the arrow to Hope and comes to the conclusion that it is muscle memory and the two must have worked together previously. Back in his office, Hope questions why Alaric is no longer at the Salvatore School, but he dismisses the idea as a long story. Alaric tells Hope that he has gathered that she is not actually "Hope Marshall" and her cover story is a lie, a notion which she confirms willingly. Hope tells Alaric that he will return at sun down to help him dispose of the creature.

When she returns, Alaric has come to the conclusion that she must have something to do with Malivore, to which she also confirms. The two are shocked to find that the creature is gone, hinting to the fact that it is not a troll. The two go to look for the creature, but Hope is distracted when she notices Landon and Josie returning from their date in the distance. Hope later saves Landon from the creature who attempts to attack him whilst he is sat on a bench in the Town Square. Alaric and Hope defeat the creature, which turns out to be a cyclops, with Landon turning just in time to meet Hope's eyes, perhaps recognizing her from his visions — despite this, neither of them interact and Hope leaves. The two later sit together to discuss their respective heartbreaks, with Landon wishing Hope well but ultimately leaving her heartbroken and alone.

Feeling alone in the world, Hope goes to Alaric's office and confesses everything, revealing that she is in fact the daughter of Hayley Marshall-Kenner and Klaus, and a Mikaelson. She begins to break down crying, revealing that Alaric was the closest thing that she had to a father. She hugs him and Alaric promises that they will figure everything out together.

In You Remind Me of Someone I Used to Know, Hope walks through the campus of Mystic Falls High School as Sheriff Mac arrives. Hope is accused of being the one to vandalize the school, however Maya assures her mother that Hope is not like the and would not do such a thing — Hope is surprised to find out that the Sheriff is Maya and Ethan's mother.

During the game, Hope and Landon interact once again, and Josie notices this. Concerned with Hope talking with her boyfriend, Josie enquires if the two know each other, with Landon remarking that they shared a milkshake together previously. When Landon walks off, Josie sarcastically makes a remark about having another milkshake moment, but Hope ignores her. During the beginning of the annual charity football game, Hope notices that Professor Vardemus is using magic to ensure the coin-flip always lands in favor of the Salvatore Stallions.

During the match, Hope makes it clear that she is eager to leave the match early to search for Rafael Waithe, however Alaric tells her that they cannot draw too much attention to her. Soon after, she is injured by Landon when he tackles her, giving her the perfect opportunity to leave and seek medical help. She enters Landon and Rafael's bedroom inside the Salvatore School, looking for something of Rafael's in order to perform a locator spell; whilst here, she reminisces over times spent with Landon. Unfortunately, she is caught by Landon who questions her over the ordeal, and she is forced to reveal that she is a witch and is looking for Rafael. The two agree to look together, much to Hope's dismay.

In the woods behind the Salvatore School, the two manage to track down the shunka, and Landon panics when it confronts them. Hope manages to draw the shunka away by turning into a werewolf — which confuses Landon — long enough for Landon to find Rafael. Landon finds Rafael and with Hope's help they are able to return him to human form. Following this, they manage to kill the shunka, but Hope leaves shortly after, leaving Landon and Rafael questioning who she is.

In Since When Do You Speak Japanese?, Alaric calls Hope to his office over the school speaker system. He asks her what she has revealed to Landon, as he left a note on his desk with questions. Hope reveals that she told him she was a witch, but nothing further. She reveals that her and Landon were in love with one another, a fact that Alaric was unaware of. Alaric suggests that she transfer to the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young & Gifted where she can better keep an eye on Landon and protect him, however she declines.

Hope later steps in between Landon and Rafael when Rafael begins acting aggressively towards him — due to the oni's possession. She and Landon later lock Rafael in the back of the trunk before consulting Alaric. Josie and Kurutta arrive later and Josie questions what Hope is doing at the scene. Hope witnesses as Kurutta explains his history, but does not interact with him directly. Hope later enters the changing rooms at Mystic Falls High on alert from Sheriff Mac that Rafael needs help. Hope is able to calm him down, but he doesn't remember being possessed by the oni.

In Alaric's office — where Josie has placed a boundary spell to keep Landon safe — Hope reveals everything to Landon, including that they were in love and she went into Malivore to save him. He is surprised, but throws Hope into a filing cabinet, revealing himself to be possessed by the oni. Josie and Alaric arrive shortly after, blaming Hope for letting Landon escape, however the two do a locator spell to find Landon.

In the Town Square, Hope and Josie arrive to find Landon dead, having been killed by Lizzie, and Lizzie shackled to a tree, possessed by the oni. Hope watches as Lizzie begs Josie to kill her with Kurruta's blade, ending the oni and her suffering. Josie and Hope both refuse, however. Seeing that Landon is dead, Hope takes him to the woods. When he resurrects, he questions why Hope is the one he sees every time he comes back to life, however she dodges the question and leaves him in the woods.

Hope and Alaric bury Kurutta in the woods, and Alaric thanks Hope for being there for his daughters, revealing that he lost sight of what really matters — his daughters. Hope tells Alaric that she won't go back to the Salvatore School as she fears that Landon will still want to be with Josie.

In Screw Endgame, Lizzie walks to the Town Square, where she finds Hope stretching, and reveals that she remembers her following the blast of magic from Josie. The two talk, but Lizzie tells Hope that they don't have time as Landon and Josie are planning on having sex that night. They try to formulate a plan, but are interrupted when a woman appears from the Malivore portal, claiming to be "the Keeper", and welcomes them to "the game". The two are confused when she disappears, however when they try to cross the road, they are knocked down by a passing car, with Hope announcing that the game has begun.

The two awaken after being killed by a hairdryer.

The two are killed multiple more times as they attempt to gather clues, but eventually realize that they are trapped in an alternate version of the 80s, where magic does not work. They eventually manage to find a "clue store", where they meet with the Keeper from earlier. The Keeper explains that they can only escape the game if one of them chooses to take her place, and the other will be set free; alternately, they will both be eaten by the minotaur. The two refuse to accept the deal, and flee, making the Keeper angry as the two are chased away by the minotaur.

Lizzie knocks out Hope.

Hope and Lizzie spend the rest of the day talking about Hope and why she didn't reveal herself to everyone when she returned from Malivore. Hope reveals that she feels the rest of the school is better off without her, however Lizzie tells her that this is not true. Hope suggests that she stay behind, under the premise that a monster cannot come from Malivore if one remains, however Lizzie disagrees and knocks her out, attempting to take the Keeper's deal. Hope awakens not long after, wondering where Lizzie has gone, however Lizzie returns having rejected the Keeper's deal after realizing Hope would die. The two kill the minotaur, which ends the game and returns them to Mystic Falls, along with the Keeper. They go the dance but Hope decides not to stop Landon. She tells this to Lizzie and they hug at their reunion.

Hope and Ethan hang out.

In That's Nothing I Had to Remember, Hope grows closer with Ethan as they prepare for Commonwealth Day, and Ethan tells Hope to ask him out if she ever wishes to spend time with him. Lizzie tells Hope that the two need to spend more time together, as she feels she will blow Hope's secret if she spends any time with Landon — Hope laughs at this idea, as the two would never have been seen together previously.

Things grow awkward between Hope and Rafael.

Hope and Rafael also spend a considerable amount of time together when the Salvatore School Group split up into groups to find the croatoan. Rafael tells her that it is nice to get away for a while, and is open to a relationship with her as he is not afraid of technicalities. However she shrugs him off, not wanting to reveal too much about herself to him in fears that her secret will be exposed.

Hope later helps destroy the croatoan with help from MG, Sebastian and Lizzie, whose memories are returned by Josie when she arrives back in Mystic Falls. Landon questions why she didn't tell him, however she dismisses him, not wanting to talk about it right at that moment. MG meets up with them and gives her a necklace which she de-spells, finally defeating the croatoan. She then turns to face Landon to talk but he is too upset to talk and walks away without saying a word, leaving her visibly sad.

Freya and Hope embrace.

Realizing that things can never happen between him and Hope — due to her past relationship with Landon — Rafael breaks the news to her at the Commonwealth celebrations. Rafael tells her that the two should stay away from each other, which upsets Hope, causing her to cry. She is happy to find that Freya has made a trip from New Orleans to see her, and the two embrace.

In It Will All Be Painfully Clear Soon Enough,

In This Christmas Was Surprisingly Violent, Hope asks Lizzie to track down and bring Landon back to the Salvatore School. She is hesitant at first, however eventually goes along with the plan.

Meanwhile at the school, Hope notices that everyone — except her — is a little too merry. She tries to figure out what monster could be causing this, and eventually resorts to trusting Ryan Clarke to help her in this. Tensions between the two rise when Clarke throws a wish into the fire, and Hope demands to know what he wished for; he eventually tells her, as the krampus arrives at the school. Hope is eventually able to shock everyone out of their merriness, just in time for the revelation that Santa is real. She watches him fight and kill Krampus.

Hope struggles trusting Clarke after the arrival of the krampus, but eventually casts a truth spell on him after he promises to close the Malivore portal. The two share a phone call, and Clarke tells her that he doesn't hate her — an adverse effect of the truth spell.

When Landon returns to the Salvatore School, Hope asks if the two can talk, and Landon agrees that they should. He talks with Josie first, however, breaking things off with her. After his talk with Josie, he tells Hope that he loves her, and she returns the sentiment, with the two kissing under the mistletoe shortly after; this signals the relationship between the two restarting.

Hope and Josie cast a protection spell on the Mora Miserium.

In I Couldn't Have Done This Without You, Hope aids Josie in a spell to slow down the mora miserium's degradation. She explains to Josie that an old friend taught her about mora miseriums and how to slow them down; she reveals, however, that magic cannot stop the sand clock from shattering. Once the protection spell is cast, Hope and Josie talk about what is bothering her, and Josie tells Hope that she doesn't know why Clarke chose her, but Hope tells her that she is stronger than she thinks. Hope explains to Josie how she felt returning from Malivore and finding out her and Landon were together.

In This is Why We Don't Entrust Plans to Muppet Babies, tensions between Hope and Alyssa Chang increase as their room-sharing situation becomes increasingly complicated. These tensions are increased by the qareen, who causes issues around the Salvatore School, which eventually leads to tensions between Hope and Landon — they are able to ratify these, however, when they realize that they are being influenced by the qareen.

Eventually, the students of the Salvatore School are able to defeat the qareen, and Hope participates in casting the spell to create a new Prison World and ascendant.She then comes in to talk to Landon. She tells him she's not going to train him as she's afraid he'll get hurt or die in the process. He tells her he'll find someone else to train him instead. Later, when Josie and Lizzie are emotional, Hope sits with them and the three talk. Lizzie and Josie are whisked away to the 2018 Prison World, however, leaving Hope alone. She realizes that Alyssa has orchestrated the recent events and confronts her when she returns to their room.

In What Cupid Problem?, Hope struggles with the power dynamic in her relationship with Landon. She does not believe that Landon should continue to train to be a "hero", and finds it questionable when he believes he can fly. Their relationship comes to a low when Landon confesses to Pothos — who he wrongly believes to be Cupid — that he doesn't know why Hope chose him. She becomes increasingly angry when Landon, Wade, Pedro and Kaleb attempt to take down Pothos without her.

Meanwhile, she attempts to force the location of the ascendant from Alyssa Chang, who refuses to cooperate. Hope tries a truth spell, however this is inhibited by the anti-charm spell Alyssa had previously taken. She eventually teams up with MG and the two attempt to charm the location from her. MG crumbles under the pressure and asks Alyssa where she has hidden the ascendant. Alyssa shows him, but drops it on the floor, shattering it.

Eventually, Hope is confronted by Pothos, who wishes to eat her heart after stabbing her with one of his arrows. Landon interjects and reveals that there is nobody more he loves than Hope; she is moved by his declaration of love but watches as Pothos rips out and eats his heart. After he resurrects, the two embrace and their relationship troubles seem solved. Near the stairs, Hopes asks Landon if it was true that he did not know why she picked him. He admits he doesn't. She then shows him a list of reasons why she loves him that she wrote when she came back from Malivore. The two make out and it's shown that Landon can levitate, until they both drop to the floor laughing.

In You Can't Save Them All, Hope frantically attempts to find a way to rescue the Saltzmans from the Prison Worlds. She attempts to reconstruct the ascendant, however her efforts are futile. Eventually, when Malachai Parker visits the school under the guise of an old friend of Alaric's, he tells her that she can help, and she reluctantly agrees.

Hope is able to convince Alyssa to stop the spell.

Hope talks with Alaric, Lizzie and Josie via astral projection, and Alaric warns her about Kai. Hope tells him that she believes he is already at the school, however, and Alaric warns her that he is dangerous and she must do all she can to lure him away from the school. When Hope returns from her astral projection, she is met by Kai, and she tells him that the projection did not work. Nevertheless, Kai tells her that she has been looking at the wrong ascendant and shows her that the ascendant is hidden within one of Alyssa's stuffed bears. Hope manages to lure Kai away to an abandoned warehouse, however he realizes and a fight breaks out between the two. Hope is able to tie Kai up, and he reveals that Alyssa is casting a spell to cut the ties between Kai and the Prison World, meaning that it would disappear, killing everyone there. He also tells her that Dorian is leading Landon to his death via the golden arrow and she only has chance to save one.

She ultimately decides to save the Saltzman Family, and is able to convince Alyssa — who is unaware that the spell would kill the Saltzmans — to stop the spell. Eventually, the Saltzmans return via Josie's spell, and Hope frantically rushes to find Landon. She is surprised to see that he can actually fly, but is revealed that he is alright.

Hope in the simulation.

In There's A Place Where The Lost Things Go, Hope participates in Emma Tig's simulation along with the other members of the Salvatore School Group. Inside, she is given the role of a bar owner ironically named "Landons". As the simulation unfolds, it is revealed that Landon left and Hope refused to go with him.

After some convincing, Hope locks up the bar in hopes of leaving Mystic Falls and going after Landon. She is interrupted by Lizzie, however, who tells her that her life is in danger. Hope dismisses Lizzie initially, but returns shortly after to help her in her battle against dark Josie.

Upon waking from the simulation, Hope talks with Rafael. She tells him that she believes the simulation was trying to tell her that something will always come between her and Landon and that, sometimes, she needs to choose the other thing over Landon.

In Life Was So Much Easier When I Only Cared About Myself, Hope, Kaleb and Jed formulate a plan to deal with Josie. Hope is concerned when Alaric suggests trapping Josie within another simulation, given she controlled the previous one. Alaric, however, assures Hope that he has increased the difficulty of the simulation. Hope's concerns are not alleviated, however and to get Alaric out of the way, she traps him within the simulation he himself created.

Hope talks with Lizzie over what Josie could be planning, and the two are startled when Josie reveals that the Merge will happen that night; Lizzie fears that she is not ready and will loose the Merge. Fearful that Lizzie will lose, Hope formulates a plan that would trap Josie within Lizzie's mind until a solution is found—the spell only works if Lizzie wins, however. Lizzie is concerned that she cannot win and runs away, which leads Hope to enact a plan-b.

Hope asks Landon to help with a plan-b, and when the plan is underway, Hope goes to fight with Josie whilst MG tries to convince Lizzie—who has run away in fear—to return and fight her sister. Lizzie eventually returns, but loses the Merge. Plan-b kicks in and is is revealed that Lizzie is in fact alive, given her life force was linked with Landon's. Hope, however, projected herself inside of Josie's subconscious whilst she was out.

In Facing Darkness is Kinda My Thing, Hope awakens in a princess-themed narrative inside of Josie's head. She is approached by a pig, who she questions about Josie. The pig tells Hope that Josie is asleep and has put herself this way to stop the darkness. Hope is adamant that the pig takes her to Josie but Hope is unable to wake her.

Later, when the darkness attacks Hope, it is revealed that Josie was disguised as the pig. Hope again battles with dark Josie but is incapacitated when she's turned to stone. Josie eventually wins against her darker self and wakes, but Hope does not for reasons unknown.

Hope asleep in the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young & Gifted.

In We're Not Worthy, Hope is still asleep, having not returned with the other Salvatore students as promised by the Necromancer. Despite persistent questioning of the Necromancer by Alaric, nobody is sure of the reason of Hope's sleep. Alaric tells the students that Hope is taking time off to grieve the death of Landon, hoping to hide Hope's status from the students and avoid worry.

Eventually, Alaric theorizes that Hope has not returned from her slumber because she is aware of Landon's situation and his reluctance to return from death. After Rafael is successful in convincing Landon to return, Hope awakens, and Landon tells her that he will always be with her. The two talk shortly after, and when Landon asks how Hope knew he hadn't returned, she remarked that she could just feel his situation.

In Goodbyes Sure Do Suck, Hope is saddened at the prospect of losing Rafael due to the Necromancer's actions. Hope has an idea, and plans to transfer the phoenix energy from Landon into Rafael to keep him alive. This plan fails, however, when it is revealed that Landon is no longer a phoenix having been resurrected as a human.

Despite Rafael pleading to spend his last days as he likes, partying, Hope is reluctant to accept the narrative and, when Rafael makes a remark about the supernova, she begins formulating a plan to save his life. Hope brings the Ascendant to Lizzie, asking if she knows where Alaric keeps his stash of Bennett Blood, to which she remarks she can think of at least three locations.

With this, Rafael is transported to a Prison Worlds when the supernova passes over Mystic Falls. Hope explains that a Prison World is only a Prison World for those who do not wish, or cannot, stay. For Rafael, he will be able to relive his idea of Heaven over and over again with his family, Walt and Lucia. Hope and the other Salvatore Students bid farewell to Rafael, with Hope remarking that "goodbyes do suck".

After Rafael is in the Prison World, Hope and Landon talk by the docks, and Hope suggests that Landon be transferred back to the Prison World until things with the Necromancer blow over. Landon quickly becomes annoyed that Hope is viewing him as weak now that he is human, and the two begin a heated discussion. Landon walks away moments later, furious with Hope, remarking that this is not the life he wants to live.

In Salvatore: The Musical!, Hope sits in Alaric's office with the new guidance counselor, Robin Goodfellow. He wants to discuss her recent behavior, particularly her lashing out and losing control over her magic. Landon soon joins them, and she rebuffs him, citing they can't have couples counselling when they're not a couple. Landon explains that he doesn't know what they are, but assures her that he hasn't walked away from their relationship. However, she doesn't have time for this session, she's busy tracking a new monster that walked on the grounds. In fact, she realizes that she followed it into the room and points out that he's the monster. Dr. Goodfellow subtly persuades her that she's known him his whole life. She apologizes for the accusation and leaves.

Later, walking through the hallway, she finds a poster for a musical on a bulletin board - Salvatore: The Musical. She immediately cuts him off, explaining that she doesn't sing in public, but Landon had an important question for her. Despite their awkward relationship, he could use her help since the musical is about the founding of the school and she is more familiar with the people that founded it, which included her dad. She becomes angry with him. She, nor her father, are characters in the story and demand that her family stays out of it.

As production of the musical is well underway, Landon approaches her again. Since he's been working on the short, he's felt like he's been missing something- her. After talking with Dr. Goodfellow about what her family used to say Always and Forever, the last song clicked and proceeded to ask if she would read it. He admits to her that he was an idiot and she was right about their separation, but he can face anything with her by his side just like her family's vow. Reading over the lyrics, she becomes furious that he used her dad's letter despite asking him not to involve her family. He doesn't understand what's wrong with the lyrics. He believes them to be beautiful and poetic, and it shows her dad in such a great light. Despite her asking not to involve her family, Landon rebuttals her. Klaus is the Original vampire of Mystic Falls and is one of the biggest parts of the entire story. This song encompasses everything he believes about love and death. Still angry, he left her to continue to paint.

As the night of the musical approaches, Hope continues to push away everything that deals with the musical, isolating herself in her room. However, midway through the production, a letter magically appears in her room, addressed to Lizzie, though she stays long enough to watch a scene between Dr. Goodfellow as her father, and lower grade student as a young version of herself. Moved, she stops to ask his opinion about if she's doing enough and if she was the person her father would have wanted her to be. Dr. Goodfellow comforts her and explains that she is entirely too hard on herself, thinking that feeling pain and heartbreak means she's done something wrong. However, everyone loses someone they love eventually, but feeling that loss means that you have done something right. That is her legacy.

After Josie is injured and unable to perform, Dr. Goodfellow's inspiring words convince her to step into Josie's role as Elena and sing the grand finale. She and Landon reconcile their differences and embrace in a heartfelt kiss. The musical closes as a success. That night, she and Landon sit at the pier on the lake. They apologize to one another and he thanks her for saving the show. He admits that the story was about learning how to say goodbye. She also thanks him and admits that he was right, too, about her dad being in the play. He made everyone see her father the way that she did. For that, she thanks him.

In Hold on Tight, Hope agrees to fight against the Necromancer and his evil plans alongside the other members of the Super Squad. She is reluctant to accept Landon's decision to fight also, however, but eventually accepts given their prior conversation. With this, Landon and Hope both go to Mystic Fallls to find out the Necromancer's plans.

When they arrive, however, complications arise when Hope finds herself unable to pass through the boiler room of the school due to a boundary spell. Landon suggests that he should go on without her and, despite her reserves, Hope agrees.

Shortly after, however, Hope finds herself on the football field of Mystic Falls High watching Landon being killed by the resurrected dragon. Unbeknownst to Hope, the death she witnessed was Malivore's, not Landon's. In revenge for the murder, Hope decapitates the Necromancer, but this does not kill him.

With Landon's return, and the Necromancer still alive, albeit without a head, Hope realizes that they have been transferred to a Prison World. She asks Landon to trust her as she knows a way out, and the two of them jump through the Malivore portal together.

Emerging on the other side, Hope awakens to find Landon has brought her a milkshake. She tries to explain who she is, but Landon tells her that he remembers her, but is not too sure if the rest of Mystic Falls does. Hope wants to return to Mystic Falls but he asks her to dance and she agrees. The two then kiss and begin making out passionately before taking their relationship to the next step.

Laying together in Landon's arms, Hope admits that she thought she could never be this happy and gave up on it. However, all she had to do was let herself be with him. However, their bliss is cut short as Landon begins to cough up black goo. Hope is shocked and doesn't understand and Landon is helpless to stop whatever is happening to him. Ultimately, Landon appears to completely dissolve right before her eyes, becoming a dark puddle of goo.

In This is What It Takes, Hope finds herself at the Salvatore School wherein she interrupts a party being thrown in celebration of the Necromancer's defeat. She tries to explain to Alaric and the other members of the Super Squad who she is and how she knows about the existence of Malivore and supernatural beings, but they are reluctant to trust and believe her. Eventually, they agree to help her find out what happened to Landon at all costs.

Hope is sedated by Alaric.

Alaric accompanies Hope to an antique dealer in Mystic Falls and the two ask about a vessel that grants a heart's most wanted desire. The shopkeeper tells the two that he is unaware of such a vessel and doesn't possess it, but Hope tells him that his heart rate increased when they asked, therefore he more than likely knows about it. Hope tries to force the man to give the vessel by performing a death spell, but Alaric tells her to stop and urges the man to run, given the spell only works if Hope can see him. Alaric sedates her moments later in fear of her behavior.

Hope awakens in Alaric's office with Vardemus' therapy box in front of her. Alaric assures her that Vardemus has explained the box is safe for single person use, therefore can help them find out what happened to Landon. Hope is skeptical, however, but is later convinced when Alaric explains that they have no other option but to use the box.

Inside the therapy box, Hope finds herself, and the other members of the student body, running from a masked murderer. After numerous hours of running, Hope stands up to the murderer and after killing him, finds that the man under the mask is none other than Landon. Hope is confused, but Landon wakes moments later and tells her that he will explain. It becomes clear that Landon is gone and is not coming back but Hope refuses to accept this and say the escape word despite it appearing numerous times.

Landon tells Hope that she can't live within the simulation forever and must let him go, but she is reluctant and tells him that she will stay. Hope is pulled from the simulation moments later when Alaric "unplugs" the box and becomes furious that Alaric has stolen the only thing that matters from her.

Eventually, Hope is forced to come to terms with what she has lost and decides that they should no longer go looking for Landon at the expense of other people's happiness.

In To Whom It May Concern, Hope finds herself staring blankly at a canvass, unable to paint. She focuses on Landon and all of their good memories together. Lizzie barges into her room determined to commence with operation 'Rescue Hope from Herself'. Hope immediately agrees. Alaric wants them to run the tour for prospective students. Hope dismisses the idea, she can't handle being around a bunch of strangers right now. Lizzie convinces her otherwise, at least until MG and the other return. It would be a good distraction for them both, as Josie has her tour at Mystic Falls High.

Unfortunately, there's far less than Lizzie had anticipated and encourages Hope to talk. Hope refuses as they had a dale. One of the students questions the lack of students, but another questions about the daughter of the Headmaster used black magic to kill another student. To keep the real reason secret, Hope suggests they just begin the tour.

As Lizzie guides the students, Hope continues to think about Landon and her magic begins to run wild. Lizzie wonders if she needs another yelling-in-the-woods moment, but she brushes it off. She's fine. Two of the students decide to leave, but MG, Wade, Kaleb and Jed arrive. None of the other students have come back and they have a squad meeting. Apparently, concerned parents withdrew them after their battle royal with the Necromancer. The school is in jeopardy and they have to conduct the tour and it has to work out.

She and Kaleb continue the tour and they take them to the gym, to see the wolf pack with the alpha, Jed. The students are unimpressed, but Kaleb encourages Hope to speak, as she too is a wolf. Hope recounts that they throw a lot of cool parties and play dodge ball. She continues to lose control of her magic, but Kaleb reins her in. Even to him, it looks like she's about to explode. She expresses that she can control it and this is her home. She can't stand by and lose it.

Due to an unfortunate series of events, she's left alone with the remaining prospective students. She attempts to peak their interest in the cafeteria. It's where they eat together and where some have even discovered their powers. She recalls several memories of her and Landon, such as where he discovered his new abilities. The memories are overwhelming for her and she completely loses control of her magic, and sends a shockwave of magic throughout the room, knocking the students through the air and unconscious.

Hope removes herself to the art room and lashes out, throwing paint onto a canvas. One of the new students, Cleo, finds her and asks if she's okay. She confesses she misses being in a studio herself, but was more of a sculptor. She attempts to connect with Hope, but she doesn't want to talk about it. Cleo encourages her to tell her what she sees in her art, and that running away from it isn't the answer.

She confides in Cleo. She sees anger, fear, and her friends in trouble. All she sees is her making it worse, and everything reminds her of Landon. She knows she is supposed to move forward, but doesn't know how. Cleo reveals that in her experience, she's already done the first step, speaking it out loud. Cleo wonders if it is so painful, why doesn't she just leave. Hope explains that this is her home and she doesn't know who she'd be without it. Cleo asks whether or not the school is safe. Hope tells her the truth. Sometimes it's dangerous but it's a place where it's safe to one's self. Cleo is relieved, in a sense. She's the first person who's been honest with her, but is still intrigued about the school. Ultimately, she decides to join the school. Later that night, Hope helps Cleo unpack her belongings, becoming her roommate.

In Yup, It's a Leprechaun, All Right, Hope attends the morning assembly with most of the other students. They officially have thirty students enroll and they retain their status as a school. With the loss of students and tuition, Lizzie plans to conduct a fundraiser month, with activities throughout to bring in funds and asks for more suggestions. Cleo offers that she and Hope can make art for an auction. Hope resends the invitation, but Lizzie refuses and approves the idea. Despite this, a messenger with notice from town hall reveals the school is still in jeopardy and owes an enormous amount of money over a property tax lien. Lizzie places the students on high alert and combines everything into fundraiser day.

Hope is still mad at Cleo for volunteering her to make art. She's still blocked and has nothing. Cleo reviews a painting of her, but believes it lacks soul. She hasn't made anything since Landon's apparent death. Cleo has experienced something similar with her sisters deaths. Cleo proposes an idea that may help her.

She doesn't like Cleo's suggestion. She can't paint with her dead boyfriend's remains. Cleo actually expects her to give him life again in the only way she can now - through her art. Hope resolves to find another way, but Cleo reminds her that she can't move on from grief if she is still holding onto it. Cleo wants to help, and she relents. Together, the mix in the remains with clay and she sculpts a bust of Landon.

With the bust complete, she inscribed 'luctus' on Landon's chest and cast an incendia spell to bake the bust. Cleo finds her work to be beautiful, but she doesn't believe that she's done Landon justice. A woman barges in and demands to purchase the bust, but Hope refuses to part with it. Cleo suggests it sell it for what they need to save the school and the woman accepts. Refusing again, the woman turns to stab her, but she magically knocks her out. She and Cleo confront Lizzie and Kaleb. Hope sees through her charade and demands to know what's going on. Lizzie takes her to the leprechaun she has locked away and learns that it's another Malivore monster. Somehow, there's a new portal to the prison world. She's furious at Lizzie for keeping it a secret from her, but Lizzie is prioritizing. Their home and school is in trouble and Lizzie placed that above her emotional needs. Hope storms out to find an axe; she's determined to get answers out of the leprechaun and then kill it.

Hope attempts to communicate with the leprechaun, but her translation spells are of no use. Cleo interrupts her, just after she's taken the leprechaun's blood, and believes her to be torturing the creature. It's not what it seems, all she wants to do is track the monster back to the Malivore portal and she releases the creature for her to track with his blood. Cleo questions how she knows that the leprechaun will lead her back to the portal. As with the other monsters, this is the pattern they've established after the monsters have gotten what they want. She reveals that she can't let go of Landon without first checking Malivore and she can't get there without going through the prison world.

The locator spell tracks the leprechaun to Mystic Falls Bank then to a parking garage. Cleo suggests they split up and search, but Hope isn't lucky. She hears Cleo scream and rushes to her aid, but is too late. Cleo is forced to save Alaric by killing the leprechaun.

Later that night, Cleo attempts to talk to Hope. She's still mad at Cleo for killing the leprechaun. Cleo abhors violence, but she panicked when it was going to harm Alaric. At least at a fundamental level, she can relate. Saving someone is more important than anything else. Cleo believes that her obsession with Landon is all-consuming and she doesn't have room in her life for anything else. She acknowledges that Cleo is right and asks her about being blocked. Cleo reveals that her sisters were murdered and that is why she hates violence. As a result, she has accepted that there was nothing she could do to save them and have figured out how to live without them, to move on. Cleo believed this was what she wanted; however, Hope can't do that, that was before she knew that there was a portal. She believes that is still a way for her to reach Landon and she's not going to stop until she's exhausted every possibility. Cleo takes the bust as Hope is adamant she will find the real thing.

While rummaging through the objects that the leprechaun consumed, she finds the ascendant that she thought Alyssa had destroyed. With it in hand, she confronts MG.

In Long Time, No See, Hope dreams of entering the prison world. Cloaked, she approaches the gates of the Salvatore Boarding School. There, she encounters Landon, and is overjoyed to find him. Landon grows quiet and begins to vomit up black blood as Malivore approaches. Hope attempts to free them with the ascendant, but it breaks. With no other choice, she confronts Malivore. Cleo screams for Hope and she wakes up from her dream, believing Landon is trying to reach out to her. She believes he's alive.

That morning, she seeks Alaric's advice on her dream. Gates are a common symbol in dreams as they represent thresholds in life. An open gate signifies an entry point into a new beginning, while a closed gate usually means there's something holding you back. Hope refuses to believe this was just a dream. It felt real, like a vision and moving on is not the answer. Finding Landon is. She's furious because she could have done so sooner if MG hadn't been hiding the ascendant. Alaric agrees that he could have been more honest with them, but understands why he wasn't. The prison world is crawling with monsters, and if the leprechaun was any indication, more might be coming. The ascendant is a key; Malivore's way out. Hope is determined to use it as her way in but Alaric forbids her to do so until they have credible proof that Landon is still alive. He can't let her or anyone else risk their life based on a gut feeling. Angry, Hope sets off to find Alaric the proof he needs.

With Lizzie by her side, they astral project into the prison world. Lizzie is skeptical that Landon is alive, but she assured her father that she would be Hope's supernatural fact checker. Josie attempts to offer her help, but Lizzie refuses. She's supposed to be all about her muggle life, and asks Hope not to talk about magic with her. Hope believes that dealing with one Saltzman will be hard enough. With their preparation complete, they join hands and cast the spell.

In the prison world, she and Lizzie search around the boarding school. Lizzie questions, if Landon is in fact alive then why haven't she nor MG have found proof before on their recon missions. Lizzie attempts to compare problems, they've both lost boyfriends in a tragic prison world mishap. She actually wants to compare blind spots, and she definitely has one for Landon. Just like she had one for Sebastian. Lizzie couldn't see things clearly like everyone else because she was in so deep. That's what Hope needs. Lizzie's astral projected to the prison world before, so she can tell her the things that I'm not seeing - is anything different than from before. Lizzie notices the remnants of a note or message. The wind likely blew it away, meaning it could be anywhere. However, since the day always repeats, the wind always does the same thing. Eventually the two find a note caught on some tree limbs and discover that it was written by Landon. This is the proof that Alaric needs. Landon is alive.

Hope convenes a meeting with Lizzie, Wade, Jed and Alaric. MG appears, but is late since Hope neglected to tell him. With planetary transit and the ascendant at their disposal, they have little time to prepare to rescue Landon. MG states his objections; it's too risky and they need more time. Hope refuses to wait, considering if MG hadn't lied in the first place, they would have had the time to prepare. Alaric agrees that the timing is not ideal, but the next celestial event is not for another month and Hope refuses to wait that long. Jed wonders where Landon might actually be, but Hope won't be able to find out until they're physically in the prison world to do a locator spell. Alaric agrees with all of their comments on the plan. It is an incredibly dangerous mission that has to be conducted on a purely voluntary basis. Hope is through with talking, but MG wants to explain his reasoning and tries to convince them to wait. Hope takes stock in who's coming with her to the prison world. MG and Kaleb decide they won't. Wade and Jed are team Hope. She turns to get Lizzie's answer, but comes to the conclusion that she won't; she's with MG. Hope is shocked with her answer. She can', she's the only Gemini witch they have and if she doesn't activate the ascendant, then the whole plan falls apart.

Despite this, Hope seeks to find another way, specifically with Josie and departs to Mystic Falls High School. Enlisting Josie, the two head off to the cemetery. Josie asks her where Lizzie is, but reveals she is doing explicitly what Lizzie asked her not to do and involve her. She's lied and Lizzie's not coming. Hope can fix her magic problem. She has her coin where she stored her siphon power and, should Josie take it back, they can rescue Landon.

Josie's angry with her and asks if she understands the risk she's asking her to take. Hope believes she's stronger than the darkness, and she'll be right by her side like last time. She went into her head thinking that she needed someone to save her, but Josie didn't. Josie is conflicted. Mystic Falls High was supposed to be a fresh start without magic, monsters, or drama. Hope reminds her that all of those things are a part of her and they always will be. She can't run from them. In fact, because of her walk on the dark side, it led to the creation of this prison world and Landon being trapped there and guilt-trips her. Despite that, she'd rather just focus on the good and that's the Josie Saltzman she knows. She expresses that she hates the position that she's putting Josie in, but she interrupts her; she's made her decision.

Josie wants to help her and prepares the spell. Hope reveals that she doesn't yet have the ascendant, and it's back at the school. For a fully operational siphon witch, it shouldn't be a problem and holds up the coin. Lizzie arrives and takes the coin from Hope with her siphoned magic. It's clear why they’re here, and she isn't interested in verbal sparring. Lizzie cloaks the coin and tosses it in the field. She'll take Josie's place and perform the spell. Josie is as much her blindspot as Landon is Hope's.

With the final preparations complete, Hope and Lizzie instruct Josie to step out of the circle and under no circumstance not to enter it, once the spell begins. She and Lizzie begin the spell and a portal begins to open. Lizzie begins to experience pain, which is new. Josie realizes it's dark magic. The Necromancer was full of it when they trapped him, so the prison world must be radioactive with it and now it's infecting them. Josie pleads for Lizzie to sever the connection, but she can't. Hope encourages her to hold on and they just have to push through. Josie believes they could die and forces herself through the circle and grabs Lizzie, sharing the pain and dark magic. Hope apologizes but continues the spell, until someone appears and strikes the ascendant. The resulting blast sends them flying through the air and Landon appears. Hope wonders if she’s dead or dreaming, but it's real. Landon is alive and before her.

The next day, Hope reunites with Landon at their spot on the dock at the lake. She wonders what he remembers. He remembers them, the last night they were together and how perfect it was. After that was just darkness. She can relate to that, as she too was trapped in Malivore before. Being so lonely, it's physically painful. She reveals they technically have Cleo to thank for his rescue. She's the new girl and her roommate, and things were going great until they got into a big fight. She elaborates to him that when she was struggling with him being gone, she kept pushing her to find a way to move on. Long story, it doesn't matter and all she needed was to be back in his arms. Landon wonders if that's all. In order to get him back, she may have pissed off a lot of people in the process, something that runs in her family. Landon believes it sounds like risking everything for the people you love is a classic Mikaelson move. Landon tells her that she'll never have to go through that again and the two embrace in a passionate kiss.

In Do All Malivore Monsters Provide This Level of Emotional Insight?, Alaric calls the students to a meeting. With Landon's return, Malivore monsters are likely to come back too. She's adamant to continue to protect him and prevent Malivore from escaping the Prison World and taking Landon as his vessel. Kaleb nominates Cleo to join their super squad, though Landon questions where all the other students are at. Alaric explains they've had enrollment issues while he was trapped within the prison world. Alaric stands to reason that if Cleo summoned one monster, perhaps she can do it again. While he is away from campus, it's their job to figure out what they can summon to help me close the remaining portal.

In the library, she and Landon talk about their plan, though he questions why they aren't working alongside Lizzie and Kaleb. She shows him a piece of paper that Lizzie stuck on her door that reads "No Tribrids Allowed". Landon picks up on some weird tension between them and Hope reveals to him that she tried to guilt Josie into taking her magic back to open the portal to try and save him. He questions, if the opposite were true, how would she have felt if it was him in danger. She questions whose side he's taking, but he suggests that she and Lizzie are more alike than she would think. She hope's his statement is wrong, but realizes what Lizzie's next move would be.

Hope discovers Lizzie talking with Cleo, knowing her plan was to summon a monster behind her back. They reconvene at the school and continue to discuss their best possible action. She suggests they summon a cherub, but Lizzie is adamant on summoning a pixie, as they grant wishes. Landon attempts to intervene, but they both disagree, though Cleo points out that they won't need to summon anything because the next monster has already arrived. Before they're able to capture it, it runs off. She and Lizzie follow the creature that runs off through the pipes of the Salvatore School, but issues arise when the creature pushes Lizzie into the pool. Covered with smoke, Lizzie believes it was Hope that pushed her in. She attempts to help, but Lizzie is angry with her and tells her to stay out of her way. People always get hurt when she is involved.

Later, over the PA system, "Lizzie" makes an announcement. She states this is their Salvatore School Monster Warning Service and there's yet another monster on the loose, but the true threat to all our lives is Hope Mikaelson. Hope believes this to be retaliation for the pool incident and confronts Lizzie. Lizzie doesn't understand what she's talking about as she was showering out the chlorine from the pool. She and Lizzie continue to argue until Landon and Cleo intervene. Cleo believes they're both innocent. Hope didn't push Lizzie into the pool and Lizzie, despite it being her voice, didn't make the announcement. It was the monster. Kaleb appears and finds the creature's skin; it's molted and Landon realizes that it's a gremlin that feeds off of disrespect and pitting the two against one another. They devise a plan to use Landon as bait and plan a trap to capture the creature.

In the gym, she and Lizzie watch over Landon, preparing for the gremlin. Using the molted skin, they track it to and wait for the gremlin to appear, but Landon quickly sees that it's leaving campus. Hope realizes that Malivore may not be after Landon, and everything is explained when Kaleb bursts into the gym announcing that the gremlin has taken Cleo. She, Lizzie, and Kaleb decide to go after Cleo while Landon elects to remain at the school researching for a way to defeat the gremlin.

Not too long after, they track Cleo to a field, trapped in a well. It's an obvious trap and they must hurry to rescue her. They plan to levitate her out. They echo that the situation was too easy, and it becomes clear that the gremlin used Cleo as bait just as they tried to use Landon. The gremlin appears, though it is now bigger than ever. Kaleb shoots it with an arrow, but remains unaffected. Landon arrives with a way to defeat it - respect. While Landon pulls Cleo out from the well and Kaleb uses his vampiric abilities to hold off the gremlin, she and Lizzie attempt to reconcile their differences and to compliment and respect each other. Due to their actions, the gremlin begins to weaken and shrink, allowing Hope to squash it beneath her shoe.

Later that night, she and Landon talk about his first day back at the school. He holds her in his arms and they discuss their relationship. He confides within her that he doesn't want him being back to be a burden, to her or anyone else. She admits she can handle it, even if he was, because he is everything to her. He emphasizes that she should worry about having him a little less and having everyone else a bit more. There's enough of her to go around.

Hope accepts his words and decides to join Lizzie, who's looking for the portal. Hope questions that maybe she can help her become chill and offer for her to join her and Landon for movie night. Lizzie admits that as much as they have in common, there's one thing they don't. Her going to extremes got Landon back, but she doesn't have Josie here for her. She misses her sister, but accepts Hope's invite to movie night. Hope tells her that they'll be watching Gremlins.

In All's Well That Ends Well, Hope enjoys a bright morning. Her happiness warranted concern from Cleo. However, everything was right in the world. She and Lizzie had reconciled their differences, Landon's back, and her defensive perimeter spell had kept any monsters from appearing. Landon appears with breakfast, but she informs him that he'll be helping Alaric, while she and Cleo spend roomie time together.

Out in the woods just at the perimeter of the Salvatore School, Cleo asks Hope what they are doing. She proposes this is merely a brainstorming session with food. Hope reveals her true intentions. They've assumed that the gremlin just happened to grab her, but doesn't believe it to be random. She wonders if she is what Malivore now wants, but to figure that out they would have to test her theory-such as using her as bait. With the perimeter spell already lowered, the test is already underway. Cleo figures this out, though the arrival of a new monster quickly descends upon them. The sky darkens and a wail cries out in the distance. The monster appears and attempts to attack Cleo, but Hope traps her with a spell. The creature begins wailing, emitting a high-pitched scream that forces the girls to cover their ears until Cleo gains enough sense to cast a spell to cause the creature's mouth to be magically bound. Cleo and Hope bring the creature to the gym of the Salvatore School, kept bound and muted with various spells.

Alaric examines the creature but is unable to determine what the new monster is. After Cleo removes the spell that mutes the monster, it wails once more, and he and Landon figure out that the creature is a banshee.

Cleo and Jed come up with an idea to allow the banshee to speak without wailing. With Alaric's supervision, Hope takes the banshee's necklace and casts the Alias Vocem spell on Jed. They can now have a civilized and truthful conversation. The banshee explains that Malivore promised her freedom from the darkness in exchange for Cleo. Though she is forced to tell the truth, she is not forced to give it. Hope, however, has another question. One that she's wanting an answer to. She asks who is going to die, and the banshee reveals that if Cleo remains at the school, then Landon will surely die.

Reeling from the banshee's words, Hope secludes herself into the library, searching for answers. Cleo attempts to comfort her and brings her tea. Hope reassures her that "there's always a loophole" and they will fix the situation. Cleo is reluctant to believe her, however and asks her if she would be happy if she left. The tea was spiked with truth weed and Cleo abruptly leaves despite her not meaning what she said.

With Cleo's departure from the school, Hope rushes back to the gym to update Alaric. Their time is running short with the rising of the full moon and Jed's turning. Hope pushes the banshee for more answers, particularly with Cleo gone, will Landon be safe. However, the banshee's true purpose was to drive Cleo away from her protection and that Cleo will die too. Hope severs the connection from Jed and leaves Alaric to deal with the banshee so she can go after Cleo. Landon encourages her as she leaves, that she doesn't need a locator spell. She's a wolf and can track her that way.

Meanwhile, Hope finally catches up to Cleo, though another monster has already knocked her unconscious. She attacks the creature while in her wolf form. The hunter tries to fend her off to no avail. The hunter flees when Hope transforms back into herself and prepares to attack him with his own weapon. She was true to her word and nobody died. Back at the school, she reconciles with Cleo, admitting that she was a kind person when she needed someone most and the school is her home now. They assume the creature is working for Malivore and they resolve to figure things out.

That night, she and Landon take a stroll to the dock. The day being a lot darker than her morning was and there's yet another monster roaming free. On top of that, she'll worry about the banshee's words coming true. She confides in Landon that she feels so much pressure. She believes she has to be happy no matter what, otherwise she feels it will never come back. Landon, however, has prepared a nice picnic for them to share and is determined to screw fate. They just have to find the happiness between the monsters.

In You Can't Run From Who You Are, Hope, along with Alaric, Landon, Jed, and Kaleb try various activities to help Cleo tap into her powers of inspiration, following the revelation she that she's a muse. They've already tried numerous methods, including potions and meditation, but to no avail. Cleo is a bit disappointed and believes she cannot choose whom she can inspire. Or she's just terrible at being wont and wishes to stop. Hope reassures her that hey will find a way to activate her powers, and when they do, they'll have something they've never had in their fight against Malivore. An advantage. Eventually, Cleo manages to inspire both Hope and Alaric. Though Hope elects to keep her to herself, for now, Alaric decides to return to Triad in search of answers.

Back in her room, she shares her plan with Landon, since the prison world is bound to the Necromancer, she wants to take a play out of Kai's playbook. She wants to sever the connection between it and the Necromancer and the prison world will collapse and destroy everything inside of it, including Malivore. All she'll have to do is find the Necromancer in the prison world and make him a deal for his blood and the duplicate ascendant in exchange for his freedom. Landon's tone immediately changes at the possibility of freeing the Necromancer, but she assures him that she'll screw him over and double cross him. Her plan is risk free since she's going to astral project into the prison world. Despite her objections, Landon is going to come with her.

In the prison world, she and Landon traverse the post-apocalyptic hellscape that was Mystic Falls. Landon acts as if he was the Necromancer as she and him rehearse the conversation. The conversation is believable, but she's not completely sure the Necromancer will take the bait. The Necromancer is pretty unpredictable, but he reminds her that she and Malivore are the only two things he's afraid of. In this situation, if he's running from Malivore, she has the leverage. Worse case scenario, he says no and they leave the prison world. As they approach the Salvatore Crypt, they find the Necromancer, however, he's dead and dismembered, and being consumed by a strange creature. Landon soon discovers that the creature can interact with him, despite being in their astral forms. Hope seemingly breaks its neck, but it eventually recovers. Fearing what it could do, she sends Landon's astral form back to his body. He quickly discovers that the wound she sustained in her astral form has also appeared on her body and begins to transform into a berbalang.

With combined efforts of Landon, Josie and Wade, they're able to reverse the transformation process.

Later that night, Hope joins Landon and Wade to play D&D. She tells him that he was great today. Though he was a bit disappointed she sent him back from the prison world. She explains that she could handle it and that he could figure out what the creature was. Divide and conquer was standard power-couple stuff. He asks if the Necromancer ever revived, but he didn't. They'll need Cleo to inspire a new plan.

Seeing Josie, she goes to thank her as well as to apologize. This was the second time she put her in a position to pressure her to take her magic back. Josie, however, realized it was time for her to do so, anyway. This battle will always be with her and she can't run from it. Before they continue with their conversation, Wade interrupts them, asking to talk to her as Josie leaves. He's noticed something strange with Landon and wonders if she's noticed it too. He elaborates that Landon forgot one of their rather important D&D campaigns. The things with the berbalang, also, as it only eats dead flesh but went to Landon immediately. Even if he had something residual from his phoenix nature, it's not a part of the berbalang diet as they hate fire. Finally, he stabbed her, in the heart, to stop her transformation. Hope brushes this off, as he didn't have a choice. Regardless, he believes something is wrong with Landon.

In I Was Made To Love You, Hope wakes in the middle of the night to find Landon lifting weights with Jed. Landon hasn't slept well since Malivore, but didn't want to worry her. Instead he's found a coping mechanism with Jed. As they leave to go for a run, Hope spies that Landon was lighting nearly 300 lbs weights.

The following morning, more suspicious, she confronts Landon. She finds his actions odd but only after Wade pointed out his actions that he's changed. Landon believes he's never felt better and that they're finally good. She hands him a burrito and he gladly takes a bite. However, her suspicions are confirmed as true as it had avocados in it, which he's allergic to. She even brought an EpiPen, just in case she was wrong. He's not Landon and casts a sleeping spell on him.

Searching for Lizzie, who's off campus, she runs into Cleo. She knows there's something wrong with Landon, and Cleo offers to help.

Set up at the Old Mill, she and Cleo begin running various tests on whom they previously believed to be Landon. The barrier spell she placed around shouldn't have worked on him, considering he's supposed to be human and it only works on supernatural creatures. Landon tries to plead with Hope, but eventually concedes to let her run her tests. Hope gives a syringe and draws his blood, but instead only finds mud. She believes that Malivore has already taken possession of Landon as his vessel. Opting to expel him, she gives him a syringe of her blood and drops it onto his arm. He drops to the ground, in pain, and his arm begins to dissolve in front of them. She drops the spell and rushes to his side.

Cleo leaves to get Alaric, as Hope fears that Malivore has taken Landon as his vessel. The one person she doesn't believe she could fight. Landon comes too and claims to remember everything, and claims he's not who she thinks he is. Attempting to leave to find something sharp, she's blocked by another barrier spell. It quickly becomes clear that Landon isn't Malivore and wants to kill her to activate her vampire side. He attacks her and they begin to fight. Eventually, during their fight, she notices the word Luctus on his collarbone, realizing he's a golem. Realizing he's not actually Landon, but a golem created by Cleo, she ends the golem by force feeding him her blood.

Cleo arrives at the Old Mill moments after the golem's destruction and stabs her stomach, pinning her against a wall. She tried to be her friend and give them both what they wanted most, but time had run out. Cleo tells Hope that she was locked away inside of the artifact for five centuries waiting for Hope — the one with the power to kill Malivore and free her. However, for her to be able to do that, she must activate her vampire side. Cleo attempts to attack her with a fire spell, but is knocked unconscious by the Hunter.

Alaric arrives at the Old Mill, but Hope believes she can handle him. The Hunter holds up her necklace and demands for the being to remove his mask, revealing Landon underneath.

In One Day You Will Understand, with the real Landon seemingly back, she becomes curious and inspects his things, particularly his sword. He appears suddenly, startling her due to his quietness. He claims he got pretty good at being quiet to survive in the prison world. Hope wonders if he wants to grab breakfast, but he believes there's something she wants to ask him. She thinks it can wait and she leaves.

Not finding him, she uses a locator spell and finds him on the docks. She's worried about him, but returning from the prison world is a lot for him. She just wants to be sure, so much so that he caught her snooping through his stuff. She admits she's trying to be patient, but also has a lot of questions and he's trying to process everything. Hope believes she has just the thing to take his mind off of things.

Hope and Landon are sent to Mystic Falls High School to retrieve the artifact from Dorian. Arriving at the school, Landon decides to wait outside due to traumatic memories.

As she returns from the school, she finds Landon attacking Dennis. Hope is shocked and manages to get Landon to stop. Landon walks off and Hope follows him. In the woods, Hope confronts Landon about his behavior. As they talk, he reveals that he was in Malivore for what felt like years and that Hope would rescue him, but she never came. He had to fight for himself to free himself of Malivore, only to escape to the prison world full of monsters. He was only able to escape after she and Lizzie opened a door to the prison world. Hope is shocked, learning he's been back for weeks. But when he arrived, he found an imposter and wanted to find out why Malivore was wanting Cleo.

Their conversation is cut short by another creature, the Vitruvian Man. Working together, the two are able to stop the monster, but during the battle, the artefact is destroyed.

That night, she and Landon talk. She's been rushing things, but she's been scared. She tells him to take as much time as he needs and that he's still the person she loves. Landon recoils though. That's their problem and nothing has changed. He tells her that they're doomed. He's the son of Malivore and she's the loophole that defeats him. They exist to destroy one another. He breaks up with her and suggests that they should probably stay far away from one another. Telling her goodbye, he leaves as she begins to cry.

In This Feels A Little Cult-y, Hope is late for the theatre class rehearsal. Things are, however, off to a bad start and she's already in a bad mood. This culminates in her losing control of her magic, again, and she storms off.

Blowing off steam in the Old Mill, Josie approaches her, asking for help. She's not heard from Lizzie, who left for a Wellness Retreat for Witches and has become worried for her safety. Hope agrees to go with her with the prospects of hitting something and to escape the school.

At the Wellness Retreat, Hope and Josie are surprised with Lizzie's sudden appearance. Hope immediately suspects it to be a trap, but learns that Josie tricked her into coming because of her anger over her breakup with Landon.

The retreat is more like a cult and all the witches wear colored crystals, indicating specific statuses. Lizzie invites them to meet Andi and, in doing so, becomes initiated into their cult, succumbing to their strange behavior.

Lizzie eventually overcomes the strange psychotropic mind controlling effects and breaks Josie of the compulsion. Together, they free Hope of the control and Hope takes down the various witches, leaving only Andi remaining. Andi reveals that she's preparing a summoning and needed power as she performed an unbreakable covenant spell-a sacrifice was needed. Either way, she would die and opts to throw herself into the crater after throwing more of the psychotropic drug on her, Lizzie and Josie.

As they sit by the crater, night falls, and they're tripping on the drug's effects. They plan to blast whatever comes out of the hole with a spell, but the summoning spell erupts in a burst of fire that throws the three witches backwards into the air. They lie on the ground, unconscious as a figure emerges from the crater.

In A New Hope, Hope continues to suffer from the effects of Triad's psychotropic drug that Andi threw on her, Lizzie, and Josie. As a side effect, they share a hallucination based on a story that Lizzie wrote when she was young, as well as a sequel she continued. Lizzie is Princess Elizabeth Saltzstar, and Josie is J-O 513, a service android.

Eventually the drug's effects wear of and the three of them wake up next to the crater at the wellness retreat. Hope believes that her fate is sealed and doomed to become a fully activated tribrid. However, Lizzie and Josie share words of encouragement, and Lizzie even apologizes to her for them not being able to realize the reasons why she was hurting all those years ago. Things are different how, however, and they've changed for the better. There is no reason why she can't be whatever she wants, too. A new Hope. Unlike the hallucination, she has friends and they resolved to not let her face Malivore alone. They share a hug, but she notices that footprints lead away from the crater and follow them to Andi's cabin. Someone is in the shower. Ryan Clark, wrapped in a towel, newly raised from Andi's death, exits and stands before the three of them.

In Fate's A Bitch, Isn't It?,

In You Have to Pick One This Time, Hope approaches Malivore, confined to his cage in the school's gymnasium. He wants to torture him until he gives her proof that Landon is still alive. Malivore flaunts his own genius and reveals how he used the Necromancer to trick Landon out of the darkness and all his cost was his freedom. Hope shows him an assortment of knives to intimidate him, but he doesn't flinch. Instead, he's confident that despite his fragile state, it's perfect because he knows Hope won't kill him and by extension, Landon. Regardless, she's intend on torture, but her path is blocked by a barrier spell. Malivore taunts her, questioning that she didn't place that spell there and that it wasn't meant to keep him contained.

Hope storms off to Alaric's office, barging into a squad meeting that she wasn't informed of just like the barrier spell. Alaric explains that this was an emergency session about how they're going to deal with Malivore and how she would fit into that plan. Hope intends to stay for the meeting organized by MG. Malivore has Cleo and she is the goal. If they can find Cleo, then she could help inspire a plan to free her. She asks about Landon, which Lizzie mocks that it took longer than expected, but asks none-the-less. MG plans to leverage their vampiric abilities and dive into Malivore's mind. She admitted that it was a good plan and questions why she wasn't told sooner. They, however, know her, and thought she should sit this mission out given her do or die attitude for rescuing Landon. They leave it up to a vote.

Hope storms into the gym with Lizzie in tow. She demands for Lizzie to siphon the barrier spell and to include her into the plan. Alaric steps in and tranquilizes her, much to Malivore's enjoyment of the show, now keyed into the workings of a plan.

Despite knowing that Kaleb and Alaric are performing a head dive into Malivore's conscious mind, it will prove to be MG and Hope's distraction into his consciousness to find Cleo. The two have snuck into the cage while Lizzie and Josie watch in case things get out of control.

Inside the darkness, they're not attacked by any monsters, meaning MG's plan has worked. Despite winning the vote to come, she's still upset that the only reason she's here is because MG can keep an eye on her. MG isn't wrong, though, as he reminds her how she has a habit of prioritizing Landon at all costs. She apologizes, again, and they continue to search for Cleo, until their path is illuminated by a bright light.

Entering the light, they find Cleo and two of her sisters, who are shocked to see them. Cleo quickly reminds her sisters that she invited her friends for dinner. Hope plays nice with Cleo but quickly goes against MG's plan, asking about Landon. They argue until the illusion breaks and the three of them are returned to the darkness.

Cleo is upset and attempts to leave. MG is also upset, as she has gone against his plan again. Hope has had enough with make-believe realities, citing that she's done it over and over again trying to hold on to Landon. The illusion never lasts, but friends do. Cleo didn't believe anyone would come for her, but she and MG did. However, they need her muse powers to lead the way to bring her, and Landon, home. Despite their attempts, Malivore arrives after his consciousness was alerted to the disruption. He quickly sends Hope and MG into another fabricated reality, and returns Cleo back to hers.

Hope finds MG in the woods, dying of a werewolf bite from the night when he killed Landon, and activating his phoenix powers. As Hope attempts to heal him, Malivore steps out of the darkness and offers her a deal-a direct path to Landon as long as she leaves MG with him. Despite his attempts at manipulation, Hope resists and stays and heals MG, just as she actually did when Landon died. Malivore brushes off her decision, citing that the next round of torture will be must worse. Before Malivore can continue his plans of torture, they're engulfed in a bright white light and they're expelled from his consciousness. Back in the gym, MG explains they found Cleo, but didn't get the desired answers. Hope wonders if Alaric and Kaleb find anything out about Landon, but they come up short, too.

Later that night, Hope sits in her room, alone, eating ice cream until MG approaches her. She's decided to reminisce about simpler times, but MG claims that she was still the one saving the day. Despite not winning the war, he believes they've won an important battle. Malivore attempted to drive a wedge between them, but he believes he's only brought them closer, specifically them two. As long as they're together, they can beat him.

Hope checks in on Lizzie after the plan fails. She's having another existential crisis, but Hope offers to sit with her. Lizzie apologizes for always shooting down her and Landon's relationship. She admits it's because they have something she's never really had, but wants. Love. Hope questions whether or not she should have this conversation with MG, but he hasn't come around. There's also Ethan, but Lizzie doesn't think she's ready for that. She reminds her that it just happens, and doesn't think anyone is ever ready for that kind of love. Lizzie asks if she'll continue to sit with her until she falls asleep, and she accepts. As the night wanes one, Hope awakens to a burst of inspiration, waking Lizzie in the process.

In There's No I In Team, or Whatever, Hope brings together Kaleb, MG, Wade, Josie and Jed and tells the the memory that Cleo shared with her. She explains that if they can find a way to replicate the spell, then they can transfer Malivore out of Landon. Since MG pointed out that Malivore was trying to splinter them, she's adapting and open to collaboration. The team agrees to the plan and Jed questions if Cleo inspired any blueprints for the spell. That, however, is something they'll have to figure out. Wade inquires about Landon, but either way, they need Malivore out of him.

Meanwhile, Jed and Wade have found the transfusion braid in a reference book and attempted to replicate the braid using shoe strings and show it to Hope. The book, however, recommends to use lion's hair. Despite their errors, they'll make it happen and get what they need. While they're doing that, she's already figured out who they'll transfer Malivore into.

At the hospital, Ryan is being discharged and presented with a bill of $81,000. He believes it's a mistake, but Hope reassures him it's not. Speaking of debt, he owes her a favor.

Ryan begs to differ about the owed favor and attempts to leave, though Hope uses her magic to freeze him in place. She explains that like Landon, he's Malivore's son and an ideal host. If they can transfer Malivore out of Landon, then he may know of a way to stop Malivore since they've been sharing a brain. Ryan doesn't want to wager his newly human body, but Hope promises freedom if they're successful. Ryan ultimately decides he'll do anything but be a meatsuit for Malivore, apologizes to Hope and leaves.

Hope prepares the transfusion ritual drawing out the intricate sigil on the floor. Alaric is concerned that Ryan won't show up, but Hope remains confident that he will. He wants redemption, even if he won't admit it. Preparations are nearly complete and Wade suggests using an anti-magic barrier, but Hope explains that it will block the transfusion. Instead, they'll need a dark object to contain Malivore--a black candle. Ryan appears, to Alaric's surprise. He's short on cash to cover his medical bill, but admits he hates owing a debt.

Hope waits for Ryan to talk to his father. Ryan's heard all he needs to hear and confirms to her that Malivore is nervous and worried about whatever she's planning. So much so that he'll say anything to try and get him to turn on them.

Back in the great hall, Hope performs the transfusion ritual. Wade attempts to keep Malivore, rather Landon, pain free with fairy dust, while Josie warns that she needs to go faster. Hope hesitates, fearing permanent damage to Landon. Jed watches over Ryan, who struggles with the transfer, unable to help. The spell fails and they're expelled from the therapy box. Alaric and Ryan immediately realize they've failed again, adding to the other ten failed simulations. Hope demands to run it again, but Josie counters that they're doing something wrong. Hope can't be the one to perform the spell. They all have something in stake. If Hope can take a step back and trust her, she can perform the spell.

Hope decides to hand over the spell to Josie, though Ryan is immediately concerned. Josie hates him, with good reason, but Hope reassures him that she won't let anyone hurt him, including Malivore. Jed and Wade lay Malivore on the table while Josie lights the black candle. Malivore is under a sleeping spell, within a binding circle. Ryan continues to worry, but eventually agrees and wraps the transfusion braid on his wrist. Hope hands off the braid to Josie and she siphons from Finch and promptly begins the spell.

Josie performs the transfusion ritual and Hope sits on the sidelines, talking to Alaric. Hope believes she wouldn't have to put them through any of this if she'd just become the tribrid. She used to think that she'd do anything for Landon, but hesitates on this. Malivore, however, begins to wake from the sleeping spell, shocking Wade who's dosed him with fairy dust. Alaric holds Hope back and Josie picks up the pace with the ritual. Finch grabs her hand and she siphons, completing the spell. Ryan wakes, though he's still himself. So is Malivore, but he reveals something has happened. Malivore whips the transfusion braid, knocking over the black candle and Ryan begins to lose control of his faculties. As he runs away, he throws Jed into the adjacent wall, knocking him unconscious.

Alaric and Hope return Malivore to his cage and learn that the transfusion ritual worked, but he was inspired by Cleo. He learned of Hope's plan and instead transferred a dybbuk to Ryan. A dybbuk is a parasitic spirit of Jewish folklore that imbues its host with supernatural strength. Malivore sends the dybbuk to Movie in the Square and reveals that the only way to kill it is to kill the host.

Alaric prepares to go after Ryan, but Hope refuses to kill him. She made a promise. Alaric respects her decision, but he won't let him hurt the people he loves, his daughters or students. Hope decides to veto his decision and casts a sleeping spell on him, responding that she's the one who has to make the hard choice and goes after the dybbuk possessed Ryan.

Hope uses the transfusion braid and performs the transfusion ritual on Ryan. The spell transfers the dybbuk out of Ryan, though he's still injured.

Kaleb, Lizzie, and Hope rush Ryan back to the hospital to recovers. He admits to Hope that he thought he was a goner. Hope admits he nearly was, but she gave him Kaleb's blood to heal him after the transfer. Ryan thanks her for keeping her promise and she fulfills the other end of their deal. She hands him his money and a ticket out of town. She's letting him go and will figure something else out to deal with Malivore. They're close enough to be friends now and offers her advice. She should kill Malivore now, while she still has the chance, despite being in Landon. He also tells her that she should talk to Alaric about Landon.

She learns from Kaleb that he and Alaric lied to her about Landon, and head back to the Salvatore School. However, once back, they learn that Alaric has released Malivore, so he wouldn't kill Ethan. The two have since fled the school and Alaric comes clean to her about Landon.

In We All Knew This Day Was Coming, at the Salvatore School, Hope watches over the students as they pool their resources searching for Malivore. Lizzie and other witches work on locator spells and Jed, Finch and the werewolves are grid searching the woods. Alaric, Dorian, and Kaleb are listening in on a dispatcher call, hoping that the human locals can find the missing students, though there's been no sign of them. Hope confirms that the locator spells haven't worked and Malivore must be cloaking himself. Kaleb wonders what they can do next, but Alaric tells them there's nothing they can do, yet, unless the wolves can pick up a scent and they have to wait. This is a hostage situation because Malivore still has Landon, Cleo, and Ethan. They can't afford to do anything reckless. Hope is still upset that Alaric just let him go and about how he kept the fact that Landon was alive from her. Dorian leaves, but believes that Hope is right. They should have told her. Alaric and Kaleb continue to keep their secrets, but Hope decides to take care of Malivore herself. She telekinetically takes a sword from Alaric's hidden weapons cache and goes hunting herself.

At the packing plant, Hope finds a monster attacking a deputy. The monster, a cherufe, has been making a lot of noise, as if it wanted to be found. Hope casts a spell to create a torrent of water aimed at the monster. It temporarily douses the magma, but it quickly reignites. With the spell ineffective, Hope attacks it with the sword, but he melts the blade. Hope casts another spell, throwing the monster across the floor. She wants to know where Malivore is hiding, but the creature is overcome with another personality. His eyes turn black and Malivore speaks through him. He questions if she likes his new footsoldier considering he's made him just for her. Hope's not impressed, believing it to be just a distraction. Malivore reiterates that this is just a warning in what this fight will cost her. The monster will keep coming until all her friends are dead. Hope decides to end the cherufe, telekinetically grabs iron bars and impale the creature through the heart. Alaric, MG, Kaleb, Lizzie and Josie arrive just in time to see the creature fall, but when Hope turns back, they realize that the monster was another missing student; Blake.

Alaric and Dorian talk. Hope is consumed with grief and Alaric tries to console her. She couldn't have known. Hope decides in that moment that she'll become the tribrid before anyone else gets hurt.

Back at the school, Hope storms into her dorm room with Alaric hot on her trails. MG, Josie, Lizzie, and Kaleb listen from afar, the vampires using their enhanced hearing. Hope is adamant on turning, but Alaric believes there's another way. Malivore has found a way to turn innocent people into monsters that he can control. Eventually, they'll run out of cages and chains and spells. The longer Malivore remains alive, the more innocent people are in danger. Alaric believes her to still be in shock, but Hope refuses. Alaric would have made this choice a long time ago, but he believes she's not ready. Hope believes he doesn't trust her but he reminds her that she is still her father's daughter, no matter how much power she'll have. Crossing a line, Hope tells him to leave. The choice is hers and hers alone to make. Alaric asks her if she's ready to give up on Landon and Cleo.

Hope gathers supplies but is interrupted by Lizzie and Josie. They're here for her and ask what she needs. She needs a favor. There's someone that knows Landon and she needs them to get her there. With their help, Hope finds Rafael in the 2028 prison world. They embrace in a hug and eventually catch up. Rafael is making the best out of the situation he's in. It's only a prison if you feel trapped. He admits it's something that he learned from Landon in foster care. She explains that if she kills Malivore, everything inside him dies too. Rafael understands no matter her choice. He reassures her that Landon, too, is willing to sacrifice everything just to spare other people's pain; something he learned from her. Losing Landon won't be easy, but is sure that out of them he'll have the easiest time finding peace.

Hope has to leave. Lizzie and Josie will be pulling her out of the prison world soon. She and Rafael stand and she asks him a final question. She wants advice for facing her last day. Rafael explains that he was only as good as the family he had around him. He knows her and suggests that she doesn't go through this alone. A bright light engulfs her and she wakes back up in the mortal world. Lizzie, Josie, Alaric and others are there with her. They've set up a meal at the Old Mill to spend Hope's last day alive together and she accepts.

Wade and others share stories about Hope, such as she casting a spell on a professor to only speak Sumerian or when she was taken control of by the slug. They enjoy her company and laugh at the various stories. MG asks what she'll miss most. Hope recounts that witches lose their abilities to do magic when they complete their transition. Not being able to cast another spell is something she'd miss, particularly with Lizzie and Josie. Speaking of, they've prepared a spell for the three of them to cast. They join hands in a circle of branches and other herbs and as they cast, the nearby Cherry trees begin to blossom. Beneath them, a sapling sprouts. They explain that it's a promise of new life and a life full of promise. The three of them embrace in a hug as Alaric approaches. Hope is now ready.

Going through a few photos in her dorm room, Hope picks a few to keep with her to wake up to. Alaric explains that her emotions will be on overdrive and she'll be disoriented. Alaric recalls the time she first arrived at the school. She made a painting for him. She wanted to be a part of his family and Alaric tells her that she is. He apologizes for his earlier comments. He's not ready to let her go. In fact, she was right about him. His former self never got to watch her grow up or who she would have become. He respects and loves her dearly. She thanks him and he tells her he has one last confession. The meal and spell was a stall. There’s someone that wants to see her; her aunt Freya.

Hope embraces Freya in a hug as they reunite. Around the room, Freya lights candles and she notices the necklace that was given to her long ago. It's like having her family close. Rebekah, unfortunately, couldn't make it. She enjoys a good dramatic entrance but Hope questions what it will feel like. Freya explains that Elijah described it to her once. At first, there's nothing, but then you slowly realize there's nothing. That's your consciousness reigniting, then light will trickle in and you'll open your eyes and you'll be back. Colors will be different, sounds will be fuller and she'll feel small movements of air on her skin. It can be overwhelming, but reassures her that she can handle it. There's nothing to worry about and muses she's only there for the birth of the one and only tribrid because of family bragging rights. Hope has another question. There were wonderful parts of her father, but worries she may have all the other parts, too. Klaus used to say that the good came from her mother and believes she'll lose the good she has left. Freya reminds her that she is equal parts her mother and father and she would never disappear without a fight. People were afraid of her because they thought she would turn out like her father. Klaus was complicated and flawed and loyal and he would have let the world burn just to save the people he loved. But Hope is willing to let go of someone she loves to save innocent people that she'll never even meet. Freya thinks that she's already better than all of them and her parents would agree.

Freya tells Hope that she's so proud of her. The time has come, however. She tells her to close her eyes, focus her breath and Freya casts the spell. Hope's heartbeat begins to slow and she lays her niece gently on the pillow, holding her hand.

Hope finds herself at a proverbial crossroads and sees someone in the distance. She calls out to them but no one answers and follows the figure to the docks; it's the Ferryman. He motions to the boat and points to the bright light across the pond. Hope doesn't understand. She questions if she's supposed to follow to begin the transformation. The Ferryman shakes his head no. She questions if it's Peace, but doesn't get an answer.

In See You On The Other Side, Hope stands before the Ferryman on a dock facing peace. She questions him again whether or not his boat will take her to peace. He nods his head and she wonders what the catch is. He holds out his hand and she assumes he wants money, which she doesn't have. The Ferryman points to her Mikaelson necklace, but she's unwilling to part with it. It's priceless to her. She counters his offer. If he can prove to her that her family is where they're going, then she can part with it. The Necromancer speaks from behind her, telling her that he wouldn't do that. She believes that he is the cause of the mind games, but he informs her that it's "Ted", and this is no game.

Hope wonders just what they're doing here. The Necromancer explains that they're in Limbo. She suggests that he jump into the Ferryman's boat, but he tells her he can't. He has nothing the Ferryman will accept. Hope, however, does because she spent her whole life being a hero where he wasted centuries being a villian. He assumes she's dead, in transition, because she's going to bring an end to Malivore. However, she can't do that if she gets in the Ferryman's boat. Hope agrees, but she believes this is her only chance at peace. Vampires are the opposite of peaceful for Mikaelsons, not to mention everyone else. He reminds her that she is the tridbrid, but that terrifies her. She recalls their first conversation. Her father will never know peace until she does, and now she has the opportunity. Now she questions who she saves.

Hope and the Necromancer sit on the dock. He questions what she's going to do. She admits that she's screwed and won't be able to handle the grief if she has to kill the love of her life or the guilt if she takes the easy way out and chooses peace. She wonders if his words were true-would her family find peace if she does. He doesn't recall the conversation. He remembers being the Necromancer, but only in pieces. It could be the truth or a manipulation. He apologizes to her, but she knows what she must do. She tells him if her family passes by for him to tell them to not to wait for her. With her mind made up, she walks past the Ferryman and dives into the water, waking up in transition.

Hope finds herself overwhelmed, all of her senses are heightened and she's confused. She's no longer in her bed, but trapped in a rail car. Malivore watches her as she wakes and welcomes her back to the land of the living, though she won't be staying long. Hope attempts to cast the Motus spell to break free, but she's in transition. Malivore reminds her that she has no magic, no wolf form or vampire powers. She's more vulnerable now than ever unless she feeds. Malivore, however, has no intention of letting that happen and to let her die. He explains that Cleo showed him how to kill her, but his timetable has been moved up and he no longer has the time to get what he needs because she's decided to turn. He's sure that since she won't feed, she'll die alone, broken and pitiful. Hope believes her friends will come for her, but that is what Malivore is counting on.

Hope beats on the train car glass window, until it gives and she breaks her way out. Sounds are painful to her as she struggles to move. She finds Malivore, controlling his thralls, behind a door. She attempts to open the door, but it's barred from the inside.

As Malivore attempts to kill Alaric, Hope surprises him from behind and stabs him. Hope quips about the dragon's soft spot, but falls to the ground, nearly unconscious.

Alaric crawls to Hope and cuts open his hand attempting to give her his blood. Hope is awake and stops him, but she hesitates. She doesn't know if she can handle what comes after. Alaric has never seen anything she can't handle and is willing to take the risk if she is. He never wanted it to come to this, but Hope accepts her fate. She takes his hand and consumes his blood, completing her transition. Nature itself signals the birth of the tribrid, the sky turning blood red, thunder and red lightning striking through the sky. Malivore arrives just in time to witness Hope's complete transition. Hope instructs Alaric to take Kaleb back to the school and she'll handle Malivore. He grabs Kaleb and leaves. Malivore believes that Hope is underestimating him, but Hope is a monster to which he has never seen. Hope casts a spell and throws Malivore through the air. As he comes closer to the ground, she vamps to him, punching him midair with enough force to throw him into a train car. Stumbling to the ground and shaken, Malivore runs from her. Hope muses that he hasn't even seen her wolf form yet.

Malivore attempts to hide within a train car, barring the doors, but Hope is there, waiting for him in wolf form. She transforms back, the full tribrid tour complete. She decides it's time to end it, and bits her arm. With blood dripping down, she casts another spell to form a sword with her blood. Malivore doesn't want to face her and retreats back within Landon, giving him back control of his body.

Hope is ready to stab Malivore with her blood sword when Landon is given back control. Hope questions if it really is him, and he quips back if she said that to all the Landons. She knows it's him, and embraces him in a kiss, citing she needed more proof. Landon, however, can't stay. He is happy to see her and he has control of his body for the moment. He shares Malivore's memories and knows she's already a tribrid. They both know she has to end it.

Hope walks away from Landon. She can't go through with killing him. He doesn't believe that considering she made a sword of her blood to kill Malivore. She can't look into his eyes to kill Malivore and this is what he's counting on. Landon is still his puppet and this is what she must do. They've been fighting this fate since they first figured out who they were, but he believes they will win, at least a moral victory, if they stand together. Hope accepts her fate and tells him that she's going to miss the way he makes her laugh. Landon reciprocates, stating he's going to miss all of it, but wouldn't trade a second of it. Hope will always love him and he will love her forever. They embrace in a final kiss goodbye as Hope stabs Landon through the heart with her blood sword.

Hope's blood sword dissolves in flames as it disappears from Landon's chest. Landon collapses on the ground and Hope is overwhelmed with emotion and then, nothing. With a blank expression, Hope walks off.

At the Town Square, Alaric arrives to greet Hope. He's late because he had to make sure the students were safe. Hope asked him not to tell the others he's coming, because she doesn't want them here. She admits that love is a burden and stops Alaric as he tries to comfort her. She thought she was prepared to become the tribrid, to kill Landon and all the emotions it would bring. Alaric does know what she's going through. Her grandmother, Esther turned him into a vampire once and knows how it feels. Hope questions why he never turned it off, but he knows that is never the answer. Hope believes otherwise. Alaric realizes too late that she's already flipped her humanity off. She explains that she did it the moment she stabbed Landon, and admits that it's really working for her. She was so sick of her emotions controlling her and now she's finally free. She warns him to not try to talk her out of it. He wonders why she brought him here. She explains that he's meant to be a message to the others so they will stay away, too. He doesn't believe they will listen, but Hope's true face appears as she reassures him that she'll make it loud and clear.

In I Thought You'd Be Happier To See Me, a humanity-less Hope sits at a bar. The bartender has her school ID, but refuses to serve her. Hope's come here to drink and seemingly compels the man to get her a drink. She chooses Brandy to feed from, though before biting into her neck, she's stopped by her aunt Rebekah. Hope isn't happy to see her, though Rebekah is. Rebekah doesn't care for Brandy's attitude, and compels her to run along and change the music. Freya has told her what happened and she apologizes for missing her big day. She wants to catch up with her niece, but Hope retorts if she's here for a Mikaelson lecture. Rebekah has prided herself as the fun aunt. They catch up over drinks, particularly Brandy.

Hope pushes Rebekah to finish her drink. Hope pulls Brandy's hair back, but Rebekah decides against it, that she's almost empty. Hope offers to pop open another for more fun. Rebekah compels the girl to forget and leave; she's done with the charde. She reminds Hope that she has a family that loves her and urges her to come home with her. Hope refuses, citing that she doesn't know what she's going through. Rebekah questions if being a tribrid is so different from being a vampire, though Hope explains that it's not what she's missing. Rebekah realizes that she's missing her humanity.

Outside the bar in the alleyway, Hope retches the large amounts of alcohol and blood. Rebekah attempts to help her, but she brushes her off. Her humanity is off, which by Rebekah's understanding wasn't even by her choice. Hope still believes that it's the best thing to happen to her, but her aunt doesn't buy it. Hope craves freedom and to choose her own fate. Such is the blessing of immortality, but it's also the curse. She explains that when her emotions are heightened, being a vampire is indescribably beautiful, but she asks her what is the point if she can't appreciate it. Hope wants her to answer that, because she's the one wanting to be human again. Rebekah, however, has lived for over a thousand years and has experienced everything the world and being a vampire can offer, except those that being a vampire make impossible. She admits that she was envious when Niklaus and Hayley had the miracle that she is. However, she would gladly give up that dream and give her the Cure, if she wanted it. Hope calls her a hypocrite and tells her to stop being a martyr, like her father. Hope retches again, as Rebekah admits that she is a hypocrite. Her aunt turns her around and forces a White Oak Ash dagger into her heart, desiccating her.

Hope, however, quickly awakens and finds the bartender on the phone with a woman who advises him to never underestimate a Mikaelson. She wants him to bring her to them and immediately hangs up. Hope, however, is behind him and has fully recovered. She stabs his hand with the dagger, asking if he's scared yet.

Hope has the bartender chained up, torturing him by throwing darts into him. He's a bad henchman, though, and wonders if she wants to know why he was sent. Hope isn't interested, but he tells her that she's the hunted, not the hunter. Hope scoffs at that remark. She's an apex predator. No one hunts her, except maybe for her aunt. The bartender can prove it and prompts her to open his shirt. Doing so, he has a brand of Triad on left chest. She's not worried. She shut Triad down a while ago, but the bartender corrected her. It's not just a place. It's three people. The three original bloodlines, all united under a single purpose. Malivore is dead, though, thanks to her, but in their eyes, she's a new breed of monster. Destroying the tribrid is the only thing all three factions have agreed on. Hope moves to stake the vampire, but he offers to take her to them. If she kills them, they'll both be free. He attempts to tell her their names, but before he can, a failsafe activates. The Triad brand ignites in flames and engulfs and incinerates him in a painful death.

Later, Rebekah wakes wondering if Hope was really going to leave her dumped on the side of the road. They're still family, but Hope questions what good is family if they just stab you in the back. She throws the dagger at her feet, explaining that it doesn't work too well on a tribrid. Rebekah had to try, just like her father would have tried. She doesn't want to talk about her father. He's dead, because of family, love and her. She warns her that she should stop acting like him, but Rebekah retorts that she should take her own advice. She admits she's her father's daughter, but won't make the same mistakes. She believes that Klaus would be so ashamed and attempts to leave. Before she does, Hope gives her back her necklace. She believes it's spelled, probably by Freya, and likely how she found her. She takes Rebekah's car, leaving her aunt stranded.

Out on the road, the bartender's phone rings. It's the woman from before. She realizes that Hope has his phone. Hope wants to know who the woman is, but she doesn't give a name, that would spoil the fun. Hope tells her that she's coming for them, but not soon enough. She tells Hope that she'll be waiting and hangs up on her.

In You're A Long Way From Home, in suburban Fayetteville, Georgia, Hope knocks on Trudy's door looking for Ryan. He is surprised to see her, admitting it's a weird time for him, but Hope insists on being invited in. Trudy comes to the door, asking who she is. Ryan tells her that she's an old friend, but she's leaving. Hope stays and explains that she used to date his brother and Trudy, wanting to meet Ryan's friends, invites her in. She and Ryan have a lot to catch up on.

With Trudy in the kitchen, Hope inspects photos on the mantle. When she told Ryan to go get a life, she quips that she didn't mean the first Stepford Wife starter kit that he met. Hope picks up one photo in particular, questioning when they even took it. Ryan says it was on their first date. Trudy said they shouldn't waste any time if they both knew what they wanted. Ryan wants her to leave. Trudy doesn't know anything about his past or the supernatural world. His past is exactly why she's here. She's looking for the bloodlines of the witch, werewolf, and vampire that created Malivore. She also tells him that Malivore, and Landon, are both dead. Ryan is an orphan and only child now. Hope mocks Trudy's domestic lifestyle, and Ryan points out that Hope's a tribrid. He's sure something big and scary is going on, but doesn't want any part of it or Triad. He's not that guy anymore. Hope flately explains that he is going to help her, or Trudy dies. Ryan picks up that her humanity is off. She asks Trudy to take a closer look at her necklace and behind her, shows her true face, threatening her. Ryan relents and accepts to show her on a map on where she can go. Hope questions that he should come with her and reclaim his life, for old time's sake. Ryan refuses, citing he has responsibilities, a job, and a relationship now. He doesn't have time for supernatural high jinks any more. Hope declares it his lost and leaves.

Outside Breton-Bar Life Insurance Company, Hope waits for Ryan as he's fired from his job. Seeing her, she asks if he has time to join her now.

With his relationship in ruins, he's forced to go with her, though he doesn't stop trying to call Trudy back. Hope continues to mock Ryan, making it seem like she's the one sleeping with him. She tells him that he doesn't want to be "Ryan" because Ryan is dating Trudy, who gives off vibes of upper 30s desperation. She gives him a bleak outlook on his future; he'll be middle-aged with kids who can't stand him, a mortgage he can't afford, a wife that wants to know his every whereabouts, and a job as an assistant regional manager at a place he can't leave. Hope claims to have done him a favor. Ryan tries Trudy again and she actually answers the phone. To his horror, Hope grabs his phone and throws it out the window. Being "Clarke" is way better, she reassures him.

At the Triad Data Facility, Ryan gains Hope access with his passcode which is still active. That will only get them so far and there's an elaborate security system. Hope, however, doesn't intend to sneak around and pulls a fire alarm, alerting them to her presence. A vampire and a werewolf emerge from a door and engage Hope in physical combat, though Hope easily overpowers them, killing the werewolf.

In the heart of the data facility, Ryan sees they have an Argus on watch, though chained. Hope admits she'd just kill it single-handedly, but opts to throw Ryan down for him to handle the creature. And use him as bait. As the Argus sets its many eyes on Ryan, Hope is free to find what she's looking for.

Ryan runs from the Argus, circling back and around, ensnaring the chain on filing cabinets, stopping the creature from reaching him in a dead end turn. Hope has found what she's been looking for and intends to find out just who Ryan wants to be. She grabs a sword and breaks the chain, freeing the Argus. Ryan prepares to attack, though the Argus stops in its tracks, turns to look at Hope and walks off away from them. Hope won't know who he intends to be, Ryan or Clarke.

Back in Fayetteville, Ryan returns to Trudy's house and his stuff is thrown on the curb. Hope admits that she moves fast and Ryan doesn't blame her for Hope's actions. She still doesn't believe him. She's freed him and though she convinced him just how much being human sucks, however, Ryan wants to go back to Trudy. Ryan does admit that being human sucks, and disappointing, and some days you hate it, but that's all he's wanted for a long time. Trudy is one of those people who loves with their whole heart immediately and he wishes he could be more like her. It's more than he's ever had. She calls him pathetic, but he was just thinking that about her. He was jealous of her and her friend. They had a home and stuck together and he never thought she'd be stupid enough to throw that away. Hope isn't worried about his opinion, but Ryan believes otherwise. She wanted him to make the same choice she did. Somewhere, deep inside, she knows what she's doing is wrong. He warns her not to open the book and to return home before she does something she can't come back from.

Personality

"I'm not scared. I'm a Mikaelson witch."
—Hope in High Water and a Devil's Daughter

Even when she was a baby, Hope was said to be a fighter. It was said by both of her parents; Hayley in Girl in New Orleans, where she said to her doctor that her daughter was a tough one just like herself, and by Klaus when he said that both Hayley and Hope were fighters in A Closer Walk With Thee. Both times it is implied that Hope inherited this trait from her mother who got it herself from her own father, Hope's maternal grandfather. She also seemed to be a very calm and happy baby. In Ashes to Ashes, Freya says that, like her paternal family, she is resilient.

She is also seemingly very intelligent as she was able to use her magic to turn Camille's car on and off, despite still being a baby.

As a young child, Hope was a kind and gentle girl. She had a sweet and innocent persona. She enjoyed helping innocent creatures and once used her magic to heal a butterfly's broken wing. She once expressed to her father that she was rather lonely, never having any other kids her own age to play with.

As a teenager, Hope is shown to be stubborn and brave as she was willing to put herself through extreme pain and possible death to get her mother back. Both Klaus and Caroline describe Hope as being smart, possibly too smart for her own good, like her father. It has been shown that Hope has gained one of her father's traits of doing whatever she can to protect her family. Hope is always offering to help to save those she cares about and considers family, including Marcel. However, once Hope magically absorbs the Hollow's soul, it nearly drives her insane because she constantly starts to hear whispers of voices in her head. The only way she can end the madness going on inside her head is by committing acts of violence. Instead of taking her anger and frustrations out on innocents, she takes it out on those she deems not innocent (provided with her father's assistance). However, her desire to quell the voices by using violence and magic causes her to accidentally kill an innocent man. She struggled to come to terms with his death and refers to it as something that has stayed with her.

Hope struggles to forge meaningful connections with other people and make friends with the other students at the Salvatore School, not only because of her one-of-a-kind supernatural classification but also because she's already endured a lifetime of grief and heartbreak. To her peers, she seems closed off. She is forgiving to MG when she thought he killed her boyfriend Landon.

Due to her often disastrous past, she has resigned herself to isolation, considering it the path that will provide the least heartbreak in her life. She sees loneliness as less of a burden to bear than her formative experiences of loving so deeply and losing so terribly.[3] However, she has begun to open up more to people, tediously forming friendships and entering a romantic relationship. She is slowly becoming more optimistic that she will be happy.

Hope often puts her safety and life on the line to save others, making her a true hero. She is incredibly loyal to her friends, despite her difficulties working with a team. She is independent and believes she can complete any task by herself, though she slowly becomes more willing to work with others. She made the impossible choice to become a tribrid as a way of saving thousands of people that she would never meet, despite the consequence of having to lose someone she truly loved. She feared that becoming the tribrid would not only keep her locked in her trauma, but that she wouldn't be capable of bearing the loss or guilt over killing Landon - Malivore's true vessel. The way she lived her life earned her the option of finding peace when she died. However, she chose to return to save everyone, though her choice became more difficult when Malivore allowed Landon to resurface and communicate with Hope. With his permission, she was forced to kill Landon to put an end to Malivore's reign of terror. The act caused her to instantly flip her humanity switch.

Emotionless Hope

After being forced to kill the self-proclaimed love of her life, Hope's humanity switch flipped by itself to spare her the overwhelming emotions that would have followed. Hope admits that she feels free after turning it all off, as though she can finally be who she wants and go where she wants. Her life has been a cycle of love, lose, grieve, repeat, but that's all gone now. She also has lost her desire to be around those who previously cared for her. To accomplish this, she brutally attacks Alaric to send a message to her friends not to come after her. She also states that she is her father's daughter, accepting that fact for the first time.

Her careless and reckless attitude continues, as she seeks to have fun and experiment with her new vampiric nature. Her sense of freedom allows her to dance with a bar patron, drink alcohol, and enjoy feeding in public. She tortures a Triad Industries henchman using darts, a callous display of apathy. Hope's dedication to her family is also gone, as she doesn't want Rebekah's help or any of the other Mikaelson's to come for her. She turns away from them as she refuses to make the same mistakes her father did - caring about family or love. While cutting Rebekah out of her life, Hope exhibits a flicker of emotion when she admits that her father died because of her. However, she's finally free to live her life the way she chooses, a fact that seems to propel her choices.

Physical Appearance

Klaus: She has a hint of the Devil in her eyes — that's all me.

Klaus and Rebekah about Hope in From a Cradle to a Grave

As a baby, Rebekah mentioned that Hope looked like her mother. On the other hand, Klaus blissfully implied that Hope inherited his eyes. As a baby, she had dirty-blonde hair and round dark-blue eyes. As a child, she had long auburn hair and light blue eyes. Her cheeks had little freckles scattered across them. She was seen in light-colored sleeveless dresses, that normally had flowers or other prints on them. Hope also had dimples in her cheeks.

LGC206-019-Hope.png

As a teenager, Hope is the shortest among her friends and peers standing at 5'2" tall. She frequently wears heeled boots to accentuate her height or outfits. She has wavy auburn or dark brown hair that is seen in many styles. She has bright light-colored blue eyes and full lips. She wears relaxed yet edgy clothing that compliments her full, curvy figure. She is always seen wearing her mother's stone necklace, a Mikaelson family crest necklace, a wishbone necklace, and earrings. Caroline Forbes described her as beautiful. As a Labonair, Hope has a Crescent birthmark on her right shoulder, similar to that of her mother and distant relatives, Eve, Lana, and the Hollow.

After turning off her humanity and leaving the Salvatore School, Hope's wardrobe and fashion choices begin to expand. She wears primarily black or deep reds in the form of jumpers, boots, or jackets. She also experiments with her hair, wearing it in a top knot, a high ponytail, or crinkles for the first time. She also begins to wear more rings, hooped earrings, and less necklaces, having given her Mikaelson necklace to Rebekah. Hope also wears heavier makeup around her eyes and switches to a light red lipstick. She has more confidence and cockiness in her stance.

In her wolf form, Hope possesses white fur and has the typical glowing yellow eyes that come with Lycanthropy. In her vampire form, Hope maintains her golden yellow eyes but gains black veins that cascade from her lower eyelids to just above her cheekbones.

Powers and Abilities

As the world's first hybrid of three supernatural species - a witch, a werewolf, and a vampire; the full extent and limits of Hope's powers are currently unknown.

However, as of There's Always a Loophole, Hope learns that she is not a cosmic mistake as she once thought. She is Nature's loophole that could be used against Malivore. Due to this, she can remember those that she previously knew and have been consumed by Malivore as well as heal others with her blood that have been shot with weaponized Malivore bullets.

Hope is a witch-hybrid, having inherited her witch gene from her father, the son of Esther Mikaelson. According to Dahlia, as a firstborn of their bloodline, Hope has inherited great, but devastating power. Dahlia also notes that Hope's magic will be tainted by Klaus' vampire blood as well as the aggressive wolf temperament. Despite this, Genevieve states that Hope's magic is strong enough to fuel the French Quarter Coven's ancestral power for generations, while one of the Hollow's acolytes reiterates this sentiment when he states that Hope might be the greatest witch the world may ever know.

As a baby, Hope demonstrated a heightened awareness of the impending explosion at her family's house and she used her magic to temporarily turn off Camille's car (as they were on their way there) to protect herself and Camille. She then used it again to turn the car back on.

After five years of being hidden from the world, Hope has been able to heal insect wings with no formal training, with her bracelet removed. However, Hope has stated that she figured some things about magic herself though has expressed that she cannot control it. She's also displayed a connection to the Hollow, drawing her sigil, the Ouroboros, though whether that was an inherent connection or the link that was used in an attempt to sacrifice her, remains to be known. Her connection to New Orleans soil, despite not being a Harvest girl or apparent knowledge of the Ancestors, allowed her to communicate with them, whereas non-witches could not. It is worthy to note that Hope has detected these events while still wearing her bracelet that blocks her power. In Keepers of the House, while other children were unconscious as a result of being tied to a spell that was draining their energy, Hope was able to retain her consciousness until her magic sealing bracelet was removed by Klaus. In High Water and a Devil's Daughter, Hope managed to counter the boundary spell cast by her aunt Freya on Marcel. She would later use her telekinesis to break the salt circle that bound the spirit of Davina to the mortal plane, sending her back to the Ancestral Plane, and returned her father back to his body. With Freya's guidance, Hope was able to connect with Elijah inside of the broken talisman. Once Elijah's mind was restored, Hope voluntarily left the confines of the pendent where with Freya's guidance, they cast a spell to restore the pendant back to its original state, albeit temporarily. In A Spirit Here That Won't Be Broken, Hope performed the Spell of Unknotting, taught to her by Kol, in the attempt to unlink Davina from the Hollow. Given enough time and enough concentration, she was able to successfully perform the Unknotting spell, unlinking Davina in the process. However, the spell was too much for her and she fainted from exhaustion.

Seven years later, Hope has improved control over her magic as a teenager; however, such control is lost during bursts of anger. Conversely, she's headstrong and strong-willed as she cast a boundary spell to entrap her father inside the Abattoir. Hope has also shown skill in creating her own spells, such that she created a spell combined with a cloaking spell that she performed on Hayley, as she was the one to kidnap her and lure Klaus back to New Orleans. She claimed that it was the "perfect" cloaking spell and that it would keep her safe; despite this claim, she was kidnapped again.

While she was the Hollow's vessel, containing both her spirit and Dark Magic, Hope's magic was amplified by that of the Hollow, as she whispered to Hope in her attempt to corrupt her. During this time, her telekinesis and pain infliction seemed to be amplified as purging her pain, by using her magic, seemed to be the only course of treatment.

Two years later, now with the Hollow expelled from her body, her magic seems to have become more stabilized and in her own control. However, she continues to use Dark Magic; such as when she sacrificed a rat to locate Landon and the knife he had stolen and secondly when she performed a Death Spell that wounded the dragon girl, that caused her to revert back into to her human form. Hope has seemingly mastered a vast array of spells and rituals that allow her to overpower and destroy all different kinds of supernatural creatures.

Unlike every witch that transitioned into a vampire, Hope did not lose her ability to practice magic when she became a full tribrid. She was, however, unable to access her magic when she was in transition which left her vulnerable. After feeding, she regained access to her magic, in addition to her vampire and werewolf natures.

Hope is also part werewolf, having inherited the werewolf gene from both of her parents. Prior to triggering her curse, she displayed some increased agility and grace, above that of a normal human. Since she has triggered her werewolf gene, she has gained all of the powers of lycanthropy. In The Tale of Two Wolves, with Hope's first transformation looming, Caroline questions that Crescent wolves could control their transformations. In response, Klaus states that the first transformation is a rite of passage and cannot be controlled. This implicates that her werewolf nature as an Evolved Werewolf with the ability of Transformation Control. However, in This is the Part Where You Run, Hope states to Landon that her ability to control her transformation stems from her tribrid status, as like with other werewolf-vampire hybrids. Currently, whether it's the former or latter which grants her transformation control or additional abilities as an evolved werewolf, remains unknown. Additionally in The Tale of Two Wolves, Klaus explains that during werewolf transformations, the pain will make one want to delay the shift because that is all they believe they can handle. However, should one let the pain in, then it cannot break oneself. Following Klaus' instruction, Hope has accepted the pain during her transformation, thus it allows her to fully transform within a few minutes instead of a few hours. Despite that the werewolf curse was originally cast upon Native American witches, preventing them and their descendants from using magic, Hope's lycanthropy does not negate her ability to practice magic; further reasoning about this has not been elaborated upon.

Upon completing her transition into a fully activated tribrid in See You On The Other Side, Hope gained the ability to transform from human to wolf form within seconds while magically maintaining her clothing. Her transition also included an energy wave that rippled over her body as she transitioned from one form to another, a trait that is not present in other werewolf transformations.

Before becoming an activated tribrid, Hope possessed a few vampiric traits, specifically her blood. Her blood was able to heal her mother while in the womb as well as she's able to heal herself, such as when she sliced open her hand and stabbed her foot with a trash picker. Her blood can be used to sire new vampires and hybrids, the latter being an ability only possessed by the Original Hybrid, her father as well as to heal vampires from a werewolf bite. After completing her transition, Hope was still able to practice magic, as she created a sword out of her blood. Her true form did not alter much, as she maintained her golden eyes.

Weaknesses

According to Dahlia, firstborns of her family's bloodline inherit great power; however, it is unstable and will damage and, ultimately, kill the witch if they are not taught to contain it. Furthermore, as a possessor of the werewolf gene, Hope will experience bouts of severe aggression.

As the world's first hybrid of all three supernatural species, the full extent and limits of Hope's weaknesses are currently unknown.

Emmett claimed that Marcel's advanced werewolf venom can take down a hybrid, an Original, and even Hope Mikaelson. However, he gave no evidence as to why it would or could be lethal to Hope, nor has this been proven to be true.

While searching for a way to kill the tribrid, Cleo Sowande allegedly saw a weapon powerful enough to kill Hope, though she didn't elaborate as to what it was specifically. Similar to that of her biological family, Hope can be daggered and temporarily desiccated by the white oak ash daggers. However, she cannot be daggered for long without resurrecting due to her tribrid nature. This is a feat that even the original vampires were unable to do, as someone else had to remove the dagger for them.

Relationships

Hayley Marshall-Kenner

"I woke up in the church and all I felt was this hunger, and then I knew what I needed - I needed her. I can feel her. She's here. I can feel my baby."
—Hayley about Hope in From a Cradle to a Grave
Main article: Hayley and Hope

TO403-113-Hayley-Hope~Freya.png

Hayley is Hope's mother and it is shown various times that Hayley strongly loves her daughter. When she first discovered she was pregnant, she attempted to abort the baby by ingesting wolfsbane, but when she couldn't resolve herself to do it she was attacked and she realized that she wasn't just protecting herself but the baby as well. She then learned that she will have a daughter. As time passed, Hayley grew concerned that because she never had a loving mother in her life, she would not know how to be a good mother to her daughter, but eventually, that faded and she grew to love the child deeply and like Klaus, is dedicated to protecting her at all costs. This is shown when Genevieve and the Harvest girls kidnapped Hope, and tried to kill her. Hayley was there and fought for her daughter, and got her back. She also demonstrated the aptitude to know where her daughter is, even if she is hidden by a spell. Hayley made a promise to herself and Hope that she (Hope) would grow up safe and loved (unlike herself). She kept this promise by choosing to send Hope away with Rebekah to keep her safe from those that would wish her harm in New Orleans. After a few months apart they were reunited. Hope is now living with her parents and family in The Abattoir.

"I was nine. And I saw this scary monster who looked like my dad. Who taught me how to mix paint. Who called me princess. I didn't know which version of you was real. And I waited for you. To explain it. Or, apologize. Or tell me that you loved me. I waited for you for years! But you didn't come."
—Hope to Klaus in One Wrong Turn On Bourbon
Main article: Klaus and Hope

Klaus comforting Hope

Klaus is Hope's father, and even though at first he refused the child in Always and Forever, he soon accepted her and was determined to not be like his step-father to his child. He even told Hayley that the cycle of the pain will end with their baby. After that, he did everything he could to make sure she was kept safe and was shown to be happy when he learned the baby would be a girl. He wants to protect her at all costs and hopes to be in her life someday when it is safe for her. He is not giving up on being in his daughter's life quite yet. He is also dedicated to being a better father to her than his step-father was to him. His love for his daughter brings out the best in Klaus, best seen in his reconciliation with both Rebekah and Marcel. With the child being born, Klaus is becoming the man he used to be. After some time apart from his daughter, she returned home. However, he remains paranoid as he worries about her safety.

Hope and Klaus' bond remain strong during the rest of the series until they were separated due to Klaus sacrificing himself to save his family. But Hope's memory of him was kept alive because of her mother telling Hope about her father such as his loyalty to his family, his love for her and his interests that she now shares with him. They were reunited after five years and, despite some initial nervousness on both sides, they shared a lovely day, it showing just how alike they are. Klaus shared stories from his long life, Hope showed him her magic when she healed a butterfly and they painted together.

Apart from some of the bad things he's done Hope knows what Klaus is and isn't afraid of him. She knows how strong he is and, because of that, she believes he can keep bad things away. Once he promised that nothing was going to harm her Hope hugged him. Despite their time apart Hope calls Klaus "Dad", showing that their bond is still strong.

Because of her mother telling her about her father Hope deems Klaus her "fairytale prince".

Rebekah Mikaelson

"I know I have to give her back to Hayley when the time is right. She's made me realize how much I want that child of my own that I know I can't have her."

Main article: Rebekah and Hope

Rebekah visits Hope

Rebekah left town before Hope's birth but soon returned when Klaus asked her to protect his daughter. Klaus told Rebekah that despite their differences, there was nobody else he would trust more with the life of his daughter. Rebekah left New Orleans with Hope and became her guardian; she often told Hope stories of her birth and how her parents sent her away to be safe. Rebekah and Hope returned to New Orleans after Esther found them. Rebekah cared deeply for Hope and stayed in her life until the Hollow forces them to separate. She gives Hope a Mikaelson family crest necklace, delivered through Freya, that Hope wore for over seven years. When Hope activated her tribrid nature, she turned off her humanity and fled Mystic Falls. Rebekah tracked her down in an attempt to convince her to come home with her, where the family would help her adjust to her new nature. Hope refused and Rebekah realized her niece's humanity was off. Rebekah daggered Hope but was incapacitated before they can leave. Hope pulled out the dagger and confronted her aunt that night. Hope wanted to be left alone and refused to make her father's mistake of caring about love or family. She gave Rebekah the Mikaelson necklace as it was probably spelled by Freya and the reason Rebekah found her. Rebekah was devastated by her niece cutting her out of her life.

Elijah Mikaelson

"We are a thousand years of emptiness, an endless parade of slaughter. Until your daughter came to us. Now she is everything, Niklaus, worth every fight, worth every sacrifice. She must not suffer the same fate."

Elijah and Hope

Elijah is Hope's uncle and has sworn to protect her. He accepted her before everyone else did, even her parents. After Hope's birth, Hayley and Klaus decided to give Hope away to make the city safer for her to grow up in, and while Elijah was against it at first, he later agreed to it. When he saw Hope again (after their separation), in The Brothers That Care Forgot, he said to Rebekah that he can't imagine the joy spending every day with her and commented on how big she had gotten. As Rebekah went to change Hope's diaper, she saw that Elijah had killed a dozen people because he thought Hope was in danger. In Ashes to Ashes, Elijah gave a promise to Hayley that he will stay with Hope, protect her and help raise her, as Hayley doesn't want Klaus to be the only one Hope knows.

Landon Kirby

Hope first met Landon in 2026, and frequented where he used to work in Mystic Falls; Mystic Diaries. They grew to be friends and it was clear they shared a connection more than that of friends. However, Landon moved away from Mystic Falls they lost contact for two years. They reconnected when Landon's foster brother turned into a werewolf and Landon decided to be there with him, against Hope's advice, leading to Landon learning about the supernatural. To keep him from danger, Alaric decided to have him compelled and sent away; however, Landon betrayed Hope and the school by stealing a supernatural knife after the compulsion failed. Hope planned on confronting him about his betrayal, even armed with a death spell, but Alaric later rebuked her for this. Landon genuinely explained that the supernatural knife caused him to lie to Hope, but she didn't believe him. Despite what Landon had done, he was provided shelter at the Boarding School and putting their differences aside, he was willing to help Hope and school to investigate the missing reports of two Mystic Falls high schoolers. She attempts to save their friendship by starting a genuine conversation, but he cuts her off by explaining that he wished she had his back and that she just blamed him for everything that happened despite it not being his fault. Their back-and-forth prodding comes to head, when Hope, asked by Alaric, has to conduct a series of magical tests on Landon to determine whether he's supernatural. The tests, however, prove negative. She eventually forgives him for hurting her, but later, when seeing Landon off, he says he's not surprised she voted 'no' to keep him at the school. However, they resolve their issues when Hope gives him a magical compass and sends him to New Orleans in the hopes to locate his birth family and they share a heartfelt kiss. After Landon activates the magical compass, indicating that he was in trouble, Hope tracks Landon to Kansas and his birth mother, Seylah Chelon. With Landon safe from immediate harm, they reconnect, though before things get too physical, they're interrupted by Alaric. They eventually make their way back to the Boarding School where Hope asks Landon to be her boyfriend, to which he says yes. After this, Hope initiates another kiss.

Alaric Saltzman

1x02 Some People Just Want To Watch The World Burn-Alaric-Hope.jpg

For the past two years and after Klaus' death, Alaric has acted like another father figure to Hope, which Lizzie and Josie are quite jealous of. He often gives her advice and she takes it. Alaric also tries to mentor and convince Hope to step out of her comfort zone, as a father figure normally tried to do with their children. Alaric is also Hope's head master at her boarding school and also her coach in learning how to fight, physically of course. Hope sometimes jokes with Alaric saying that she'll need a new fighting mentor being Alaric is growing older. However, they remain close as much as a non-biological fatherly-daughterly coupling can be.

Josie Saltzman

Hope and Josie

Hope met Josie when she moved to Mystic Falls and for a decade their relationship was distant and cold, mostly because Hope used to distance herself from Josie. For the time being, Josie harbored a secret crush on Hope, with Lizzie describing her as "obsessed". However, after Hope's parents died, they became closer and eventually became friends, such that Hope even covers for and protects Josie. Sometimes their friendship seems to make Lizzie jealous, because of Lizzie's dislike for Hope. They, however, do care for one another. When facing the croatoan, Hope admits to Lizzie that when she was fourteen she had a week-long crush on Josie. Their friendship, became complicated after Hope was absorbed by Malivore and all memories of her were erased. This allowed Landon to become involved with Josie and the two developed a romantic relationship, culminating in their first kiss which was witnessed by Hope. When the memories of Hope returned to those closest to her, it complicated Landon's feelings towards both girls. Josie and Hope grew distant from one another, with Josie viewing Hope in a negative light for not telling everyone she was back from Malivore. Despite Hope's insistence that she never meant to hurt Josie, they remained distant. When Landon chose Hope instead of Josie, their dynamic grew awkward. They were able to gradually regain their friendship after Hope helped Josie with the Mora Miserium. Josie later helped decorate Hope's new dorm room so she felt more at home and less like an outsider.

Name

  • Hope is a feminine first name of English origin referring to a positive expectation or to the theological virtue of hope.[4]

  • Mikaelson is of Scandinavian origin and means "Son of Mikael".

Trivia

  • Sophie described Hope as "one of Nature's loopholes" in The Originals.
  • During Hayley's pregnancy, Hope had various nicknames.
    • Hayley often referred to her baby as "Magical Miracle Baby" but also called her "My Little Girl" and "Baby Girl" in a letter to her.
    • In Fruit of the Poisoned Tree, her aunt nicknames her "The Demon Spawn" and called her "My Little Niece". And she called her Mikaelson Miraculous Baby in Sinners and Saints. After Hope's birth, Rebekah calls her "Princess" in a bedtime story.
    • Sophie and Tyler both referred to her as "The Hybrid Baby" and Celeste called her "The Wolf".
    • Klaus called her "Littlest Wolf" in From a Cradle to a Grave, as a reference to the nickname that he gave to Hayley; "Little Wolf".
  • Klaus mentioned in Reigning Pain in New Orleans, that Hope is the only thing that matters to him.
  • According to Eve, many werewolves have heard about Klaus and Hayley's unborn child, Hope, and have come to New Orleans to see this miracle pregnancy for themselves.
  • In Moon Over Bourbon Street, Elijah expresses his wish that his niece would inherit her mother's "everything".
  • Due to the unique nature of her conception, Hope birth was a Nexus Vorti, a miracle event that the witches can draw upon for great power.
  • In From a Cradle to a Grave, in a brief flashback Hayley was seen writing a letter to her daughter. She tried out some names like Zoë, Caitlin and Angela.
  • Klaus names her Hope because she's the hope of his new family. As such, her name could not be more appropriate, since her arrival brought upon two reconciliations; the first being between Klaus and Marcel, and the second between Klaus and Rebekah.
  • Like her mother she was born in New Orleans, but she was conceived in her father's birthplace, Mystic Falls.
  • She shares some traits with her aunt, Freya:
    • Both of their births were against nature (Esther was infertile and being a vampire Klaus normally cannot have children).
    • They are both the first-born of their generation and they are both girls.
    • Hope was given to her aunt Rebekah by her parents to keep her safe, and Freya was taken away by her aunt Dahlia.
    • Both were separated from their parents under the pretense of death, while only a select few knew what really happened to them; only Esther, Finn, and Dahlia knew that Freya didn't die of the plague, and only Hayley, Klaus, Elijah, Ansel, and Rebekah knew that Hope didn't die shortly after her birth.
  • Rebekah was the first to refer to Hope as a "tribrid" instead of a "hybrid".
  • Hope shares a few similarities with Nadia Petrova:
    • Both of their mothers gave birth to them in difficult situations.
    • They were both unwanted at first, Hope by her parents and Nadia by her grandfather and then by her mother 500 years later.
    • They were both born from a witch heritage.
    • They were taken from their mothers shortly after birth, Hope by the witches and Nadia by her grandfather. They were later reunited with them after a considerable amount of time apart; six months and 500 years, respectively.

Tropes

  • Daddy's Girl - Hope seems to light up whenever her father is around. It's clear how much Hope adores her father and it's clear how much Klaus loves her. Klaus was besotted with her even before she was born
  • Hybrid Power - Hope has demonstrated magic abilities from her witch side and healing abilities from her vampire side though latter power is slower than a full vampire's healing factor.
  • Protective Mom - Hope has a mother that adores her and it's clear that Hope feels the same. Whenever Hope sees her mother, she's always laughing.
  • Birth/Death Juxtaposition - Almost as soon as she's born, her mother Hayley is killed by Monique. Subverted in that Hayley woke up in transition, due to dying while Hope's blood was still inside her.
  • Sins of Our Fathers - As Klaus notes, Hope has 'inherited' all of his enemies by being his daughter.

  1. In Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, Freya states that Hope is now 15 years old. Despite this, there has only been a seven year time jump from May 2019. This makes the current timeline May 2026, which would make Hope 14; this is a timeline error. Despite there only being a two-year time jump to 2028, as of This is the Part Where You Run, which would make Hope 16, the timeline error is continued, making her 17 years old. As of I'll Never Give Up Hope, Hope celebrated her 18th birthday while trapped in Malivore.
