Klaus and Hope (2023)

In Pilot/Always and Forever, Sophie Deveraux revealed to Klaus that the Werewolf Hayley Marshall was pregnant with his child. He didn't take the news well, and initially believed that it was a plot on the witches' part to force him to join their side in their fight against Marcel's rule of the French Quarter. However, after several conversations with his brother, Elijah, as well as a talk with a new acquaintance, Cami, he ultimately decided to take his future role as a father more seriously, and he and Elijah invited Hayley to live with them at the plantation house for her and her child's protection.

In House of the Rising Son, Klaus became furious and choked Hayley upon learning that she had almost attempted to abort their child by ingesting wolfsbane tea, though Rebekah eventually pulled him off of her. Despite his violent reaction, it was clear that he did care very much for the child, and he was relieved when he later spoke again with Hayley, who told him that since she also did not have great examples of parents while she was growing up, she wanted to protect her child in ways that she never was. Hayley decided to keep the baby, much to Klaus' relief.

In Tangled Up In Blue, Hayley informed Klaus that she learned from an old trick done by the witch Sabine that the baby was likely going to be a girl, and he smiled at this news.

In Girl in New Orleans, Klaus became incredibly concerned when Hayley went missing after being taken to an obstetrician by Agnes, the sole remaining Elder of the French Quarter Coven. Fortunately, Hayley was eventually found by Klaus and Rebekah in the woods in the Bayou, and was shown to have healed from all of her wounds as a result of the baby's hybrid blood flowing through her system. At the realization that their baby had healed Hayley, Klaus smiled proudly.

In Sinners and Saints, Klaus, furious that the witches who were supposed to be on their side had attacked Hayley with the intention of killing both her and the child, captured Sophie Deveraux from Rousseau's and brought her back to the plantation house for questioning.

In Fruit of the Poisoned Tree, Klaus went after Agnes when he discovered she used the Needle of Sorrows on Sophie (who was linked to Hayley at the time) with the intention of using the dark object to induce a miscarriage in Hayley by raising her blood temperature. He threatened Agnes to undo the curse or he would show her things worse than death, but Agnes insisted that since the spell had taken root in Hayley through Sophie, it could not be undone. Fortunately, Davina Claire, under Elijah's guidance, unknowingly unlinked Hayley and Sophie, saving the baby's life. Klaus was ready to kill Agnes for her actions, but Elijah ultimately did it instead, as he had promised Sophie that Agnes would not die at Klaus' hands, though he made no such promises about his own.

In Bloodletting, Klaus became worried when Hayley once again went missing after being captured from their backyard, and eventually tracked her down to the Bayou. When he arrived there, he realized that Tyler Lockwood's scent was everywhere and knew that he had taken her in revenge for killing his mother. Earlier in the episode, Tyler informed the captured Hayley that he met a witch friend in his travels who had been having premonitions in her dreams that showed her Klaus was going to create more hybrids using their baby's blood. The theory that Hope's blood could create more hybrids was confirmed when Tyler used the baby's blood to successfully sire Dwayne. When Hayley ran away and came upon Elijah in the woods, she informed him of Klaus' supposed plan, and they borg ultimately believed Klaus did, in fact, know that the baby's blood could create hybrids based on their past experiences with him. Elijah later accused Klaus of planning to sire more hybrids with Hope's blood and even reminded him of Klaus' own quote, "Every king needs an heir", which he had said after learning that Hayley was pregnant with Hope. Klaus, furious and hurt that Elijah and Hayley would believe Tyler despite the fact that Klaus was innocent, violently bit Elijah on the neck in retaliation and fled, leaving Hayley and Elijah stranded in the Bayou.

In The River in Reverse, Klaus told Rebekah that he believed Elijah deserved a day or two of discomfort from his hybrid bite for falsely accusing him of having malicious intentions for his child. When Elijah healed and returned to their home, Klaus, with the last silver dagger in hand, stated that Elijah should be daggered for trying to steal both Hayley and his child from him, as he believed his child would eventually grow up to call Elijah father instead. He reiterated that he only had pure intentions for his child, but that his siblings always believed the worst of him. He then left the plantation house to return to living at the Abattoir, which he had just won back from Marcel, and insisted that Hayley come with him, as their child was the only thing on earth he cared about anymore.

In Reigning Pain in New Orleans, Klaus assured his newly-gained vampires that he did not intend to use his child's blood to transform more hybrids, and offered them proof by allowing them to go to the Bayou on a wolf hunt to slaughter the remaining werewolves to ensure that he couldn't make hybrids even if he wanted to do so. However, this plan was thwarted by Elijah and Rebekah at Hayley's request.

In Après Moi, Le Déluge, Klaus showed concern for both Hayley and the baby when Hayley wanted to visit her fellow werewolves in the Bayou during the storm caused by Davina's out-of-control magic. He informed her that she couldn't, as it was not a safe night to do so, and when Hayley insisted, he accompanied her to St. Anne's Church to bring canned food to the displaced wolves there.

In Farewell to Storyville, when Klaus ordered Rebekah to leave New Orleans and never come back in punishment for betraying him with Marcel in 1919, he informed her that he would raise his child in the city that she tried to take from him.

In Moon Over Bourbon Street, Klaus made a deal with Jackson to help make the Crescent Wolf Pack moonlight rings in order to form an alliance with the werewolves, not only in order to reconnect with his werewolf side, but because he wanted his own part-werewolf child to be protected in the future as well.

In The Big Uneasy, Klaus told Elijah that he felt that Hayley and Hope would be much safer and better off in the Bayou with the wolves, though he would like to have her come back and give birth in New Orleans. Meanwhile, Monique announced to the coven that the Ancestors had ordered that Genevieve could live, so long as they got a different offering of their own choosing -- Klaus and Hayley's child.

In An Unblinking Death, the werewolf encampments were bombed by a then-unknown enemy while the still-pregnant Hayley and Elijah were there; though neither Hayley nor the baby were injured, Klaus was still furious when he learned of the attack.

In A Closer Walk With Thee, Klaus became incredibly worried for the baby when Hayley's health took a dire turn after Monique Deveraux cast a spell on her to kill her and the baby, believing she was acting on the Ancestors' orders. While Genevieve was tending to Hayley, Klaus desperately suggested that they deliver the baby right then, as he didn't want to risk losing her (or Hayley). However, Elijah "ultimately stepped in", as he didn't want to lose Hayley or the baby, either. Genevieve managed to save both Hayley and the baby after she identified the spell Monique cast on her and reversed it. Once Hayley had awoken and healed, Klaus showed her the nursery to assure her that she would be safe after their child was born; while there, Klaus confessed that he was hoping they would live together in the compound so they could raise their child together in their family home.

In The Battle of New Orleans, Klaus was left severely weakened after Genevieve double-crossed him by linking the moonlight rings she created to his blood, so that using the rings would draw on his strength to keep the werewolves wearing them from turning on the full moon, and by giving the rings to the newly-triggered Correa/Guerrera werewolves led by Francesca. Genevieve then informed Klaus that both his child and his child's mother would suffer as a consequence of Klaus' greed and hunger for power in New Orleans. Knowing that Genevieve and the witches had Hayley, who was nearly ready to give birth, Klaus mustered up all of his strength to search for her, and he roared deafeningly in the streets when he heard Hayley screaming in agony.

In From a Cradle to a Grave, Klaus and Hayley's daughter was born in St. Anne's Church, with Genevieve, Monique, and Abigail assisting. Klaus stormed the church when he came to save them, but Monique and Abigail used their combined Harvest power to pin Klaus to the wall, leaving him unable to do anything but watch in horror as Hayley gave birth to their child. He and Hayley were given only a moment to look at their beautiful baby daughter before Monique grabbed Hayley by the hair and slit her throat, causing Klaus to roar in rage as he saw Hayley die in front of him. The witches immediately took the baby and left to prepare for her sacrifice, snapping Klaus' neck with magic before they left. Unbeknownst to them, Hayley awoke in transition to become a hybrid after dying with her daughter's blood in her system. She managed to catch up with Elijah and Klaus at the cemetery, so she could use the fact that her body was unconsciously drawing her to her daughter so she could complete the transition to lead them where the witches were just about to stab the baby to death with an athame. The three of them got into a physical fight with the witches, but with Marcel's help, they were able to kill Genevieve, Monique, and Abigail and stop the sacrifice from happening.

Knowing that they have too many enemies in New Orleans for their daughter to grow up safely, Klaus and Hayley decided to send her away while they stay behind and clean up the mess that they made of New Orleans. Once again with Marcel's help, they faked the child's death (putting the blame on the werewolves) and called Rebekah back to town so that she can take her away and keep her safe. Klaus and Rebekah decided that she would get a trustworthy witch to cast a cloaking spell on both of them to prevent the witches from finding her Before Klaus gave his daughter to Rebekah, Klaus softly whispered that he swore to her that he would make New Orleans safe for her, that he would always keep her from harm, and that she would one day return to him where she belongs. Before Rebekah left with her, Rebekah asked Klaus what her name is, so Klaus informed Rebekah that her name is Hope.

In For the Next Millennium, Klaus is taking care of Hope being a loving father, but still refusing to help Hayley.

In You Hung the Moon, Klaus is afraid that Hayley is dead because he is scared of losing Hope forever. He then fights with Hayley but gives up knowing he had lost and that his daughter is watching. When Hayley and Jackson show Hope their flat Klaus gets really mad breaking his glass knowing he just lost his daughter.

In A Ghost Along the Mississippi, Jackson Kenner is killed by Tristan de Martel as revenge against Hayley for torturing him, therefore Hayley can no longer keep Hope away from Klaus, as the apartment she is living in was in Jackson's name.

In The Bloody Crown, Klaus is forced to write a goodbye-letter to Hope being he doesn't know when he will be able to see her again. Klaus sacrifices himself to save the rest of his family. Klaus now must endure a painful slumber under Papa Tunde's blade and Marcel's vengeance. Hayley later opens the letter and smiles at what Klaus wrote to their daughter.

In No Quarter, Klaus mentions to his hallucination of the late Camille O'Connell, that deep down he doesn't want Hope to end up like him, or be the kind of father to her like Mikael was to him, as Klaus is terrified that he may fail his daughter as a father. After being rescued by his half-siblings and Hayley from Marcel, he is reunited with his daughter. However, they do not have any direct interaction, as Hope is sleeping. Klaus is also angry because he missed five years of his daughter's life, due to the actions of Marcel, as he hates the latter because of this.

Klaus and Hope (1)

In Haunter of Ruins, Klaus finally directly meets his daughter, as both are surprised to see each other. Hope immediately recognizes and knows who Klaus is, despite the fact she had never met or seen her father's face before (but she is unaware of Klaus' history), however, she is also initially nervous of Klaus. He spends all day bonding with his daughter, and making up for the five years they have missed together. He also discovers that his daughter is an artist (a painter, like himself) much to his joy. She is also happy that she has her father in her life. After spending the whole day with Hope, Klaus openly expresses his pride for his daughter to Rebekah, stating that the latter is an art prodigy.

Hope wakes up in the middle of the night. She's had a bad dream and comes to tell Klaus about it. Klaus has been looking at her drawings of the snake eating its own tail. He seems concerned by them. When Hope enters, he kneels down and puts his hands on her shoulders. Hope explains that her dream was about a bad man hurting these kids. She believes this man also hurt her. Her head hurts and she feels cold. Klaus is at a loss as to what to do. He calls for Hayley.

In Keepers of the House, Hope is suffering from the affects of the Hollow ritual involving four other supernatural children. This concerns the entire Mikaelson family. Klaus, Elijah, and Hayley meet Vincent at the Abattoir. Hope is half conscious. As Klaus looks on in worry, Vincent performs a spell over Hope to purify her body. After Hope wakes, Hayley tells Hope to go see her daddy. As Hope is walking towards Klaus, crows start falling from the sky. Klaus asks Vincent what it is, but Vincent does not know. Hope hears whispers saying a name over and over. According to Vincent, it is an almost forgotten Creole dialect. It means "The Hollow is coming."

Hope is lying in bed when Klaus enters. He asks how she is feeling. She still feels cold. Hope asks Klaus if the birds are gone. Klaus assures her they are. When she feels better, which according to Klaus will be soon, they are going to share a big plate of beignets. Klaus asks her where she would like him to take her next. Hope's mom says that Klaus loves New Orleans most of all. Once upon a time that was true, but after coming back to New Orleans, Klaus says that putting your love in a place is a mistake; he is reminded that people are better suited to take up room in our hearts. Hope is still not feeling well. Klaus looks at her with sympathy and places his hand on the side of her face.

Later on, Hope is still in bed. Hayley told her that Vincent is a witch and here to help Hope get better. Hope admits that she feels worse. Klaus says he knows and tells her that Hayley and Elijah are working with Vincent to make her better. Hope asks her father if he knows what the Hollow is. Klaus admits that he does not. Hope can feel that it wants the other kids, and thinks it wants her too. Klaus says that he would never allow it to take her and will keep her safe "always and forever."

In I Hear You Knocking, Klaus has become very overprotective of Hope since the Hollow's attempt on her life.

In High Water and a Devil's Daughter, Hope is in the Abattoir's attic. She has found Marcel's old trunk and is reading aloud from an old book of rhymes. Klaus finds her. He does not like her playing there because, according to him, there are bats. Hope doesn't believe him. Klaus jokingly says that he has not seen any evidence that Elijah does not sleep there, hanging upside down. Hope smiles and changes the subject. She asks her dad if a little boy used to live there. Klaus looks away, trying to think of something to say. He finally walks over to her, closes the book in her lap, and tells her they can discuss ancient history another time. Klaus holds out his hand, but Hope turns away to grab a toy on the floor. She turns back and takes Klaus' hand and they walk out of the room together.

Klaus finds Hayley and tells her where he found their daughter. He believes that Hope is restless. Hayley disagrees; she believes Hope is just bored. She has no one her own age to play with. As soon as Freya teaches Hope to control her powers, she will not have a need for friends; she will worshiped instead. Hayley explains to Klaus that Hope doesn't care about being worshiped; she wants someone else to hold the other end of the jump rope. Klaus scoffs, believing she will be above such things and will have no need to be kept inside boundary spells. Hayley thanks Klaus for protecting Hope's innocence. Klaus does so because no one protected theirs.

The Abattoir is attacked by the Hollow's followers. Hope is with Marcel when the attack starts. Klaus is fighting Dominic. Klaus seems to be losing when Dominic goades Klaus by mentioning Hope. Klaus rips Dominic's head off and goes to find Hope. He runs into The Garden and finds Hope's bracelet, but no Hope or Marcel.

Hope and Marcel are sitting on a bench when Klaus finds them. Klaus yells Marcel's name, causing Hope to turn to her dad. She runs to him and notices his hands have blood on them. Klaus quickly says that its paint and he's made kind of a mess. Klaus asks her if she is okay, as Hope took her bracelet off. Hope asks her dad not to be mad, but she let Marcel out and he kept her safe. Klaus says he is not mad and pulls her in for a hug. Hope implores her dad to not be angry with Marcel either; she has come to regard him as a friend.

In Voodoo in My Blood, Klaus is taken as a sacrifice to stop the Hollow by Davina Claire. Hope is left at home. She starts to hear whispers telling her that Klaus is in trouble. She takes her bracelet off and runs to help her father. She finds him at St. Anne's Church about to be sacrificed. Not surprisingly, Hope is angry. Davina had promised to help Hope and her family but in fact she is hurting them. Hope cannot allow it. She uses magic to break Davina's circle. Klaus immediately wakes up. Hope runs to him and they hug.

Later on, Hope and Hayley are talking about what she had done. Hayley says that Klaus compelled an entire candy shop as a reward for Hope. Hope points out to her mother that Klaus seemed sad. Hayley explains that Klaus wanted to be one to save the day but Hope beat him to it.

In Queen Death, Hope is with her dad after Elijah is killed. Freya attempts to locate him within her shattered pendant but she struggles to do so. When Hope touches Freya's shoulder, together they can still senses him, though his mind is shattered just like the pendant.

In Voodoo Child, Klaus tries to get through to Hope under the Hollow's control but his attempt is unsuccessful. Hope is the possessed by the Hollow.

In The Feast of All Sinners, Klaus and his siblings accept to be part of a ritual that will separate them forever, in order to save Hope, possessed by The Hollow. After Marcel succeeds in retrieving Hope's body, Klaus talks to her while she is sleeping in her bedroom. He tells her that he knows she can hear him, that she is his daughter, she is a Mikaelson, she is strong and brave unlike anyone he's ever known and he admits that she has made him believe in something that Elijah had once told him: family is power. After the end of the ritual Klaus has to leave and stay away from Hope forever, but he stays until Hope wakes up in Hayley's arms. Then he tells her that he loves her and leaves, while Hope desperately calls him.

In Where You Left Your Heart, Klaus calls Hayley's phone looking for her. Hope picks up instead. Hope informs Klaus that her mother is missing. Klaus contemplates the situation for a moment, he finally decides to return to New Orleans.

In One Wrong Turn On Bourbon, Klaus is interrogating Hayley's boyfriend Declan at Rousseau's. Declan says that "your Hope's father, aren't you. You look like her around the eyes." Declan asks Klaus to look around. Hope has drawn pictures of Declan. Declan explains that he is there for birthdays, holidays, and is even teaching Hope how to drive. He asks Klaus where the hell he was. Klaus reacts violently and pins Declan against the counter. As Klaus is about to attack Declan, he is thrown to the other side of the room. Hope is standing the doorway. She looks down at him and says "Seriously, dad?" Klaus is astonished to see her. They stare at each other. This is the first time they have seen each other in five years.

After asking Marcel to keep an eye out for information on Hayley, Klaus eventually learns that Hope is responsible for her disappearance. Klaus confronts Hope asking if it was true and what she had done with her mother. Hope is unperturbed. She explains that she knew something big had to happen to bring him home. Hayley is fine; she is cloaked in a sleeping spell written by Hope herself. Klaus sarcastically says "he has never been prouder." Klaus can't believe that the little girl he once knew would do something like this. Hope comes back with "that little girl hadn't read your memoirs. You compelled Cami O'Connell to tell your story; how you put your family members in coffins and used them for leverage." Klaus smiles and looks rather impressed by this. He asked what other tricks of his she knew and then enters Hope's mind to find Hayley's location. She is at St. Anne's Church. Hope pushes him away and tells her father to get out of her head. Klaus is concerned that they are in such close proximity. He tells Hope that he will ask Hayley to take it easy on Hope and attempts to leave. Hope barricades the door with magic.

Hope follows Klaus, who is still attempting to leave the Abattoir. She asks why he wrote letters and called her on occasion, but suddenly stopped. He says she knows why. Five years ago Hope attempted to visit Klaus using an astral projection, she saw her father with blood all over himself as he just killed two people. He is holding one of his victims hearts in his hand and he turns around in horror to find Hope is watching all of this. He screams at her to get out. In the present day, Hope says that she didn't know that she had to knock before entering and that she was sorry she interrupted his murder orgy.

Sometime later, Hope and Klaus are still at odds. Klaus is attempting to explain to Hope why he cut himself out of her life. The horror in his eyes when Hope saw him that night is burned into his memory. Hope was nine at the time and couldn't believe that the same man who taught her how to mix paint, and called her a princess was the same monster she saw that night. She didn't know what version of him was real and waited for him to explain it all to her. All she wanted was for Klaus to apologize or tell her he loved her. Hope tearfully says that she waited for years but Klaus never came. In Klaus' experience, fathers only cause pain and ruin. Hope was such a sweet little girl and Klaus believes that perhaps he was meant to leave her broken. Hope is in disbelief. Maybe that little who missed her father so much was better off if she never loved him at all. Klaus has tears in his eyes as Hope wipes away her own. Klaus pleads with her but Hope shakes her head. She uses magic to unbarricade the door. Klaus looks back regretfully, but eventually departs.

Klaus returns to the Abattoir after finding Hayley's bloody and destroyed coffin. Hope asks where her mother is. Klaus reluctantly explains that the coffin was empty and whatever happened to Hayley didn't happen without a fight. Hope doesn't understand how the coffin was empty. Hope seems to be having some kind of panic attack. She is short of breath and holding her chest. Klaus understands Hope's actions. He believes that it was not her intention for someone to get hurt and Klaus left her no choice. Klaus grabs her arms and asks her to look at him. Klaus says that Hayley's disappearance is his fault and he is going to fix it. Hope starts to cough and hold her throat. Klaus starts to look concerned and asks what is it. Hope drops to her knees. A snake suddenly appears from her throat. Klaus looks on in horror. Hope is crying as she says that Klaus has to leave. Klaus promises her that he will find her mother and return her back to Hope. Klaus tells her he loves her and departs.

In Don't It Just Break Your Heart, Klaus stops Hope from binding her werewolf side.

In God's Gonna Trouble the Water, Klaus offers emotional support to Hope who recently lost her mother and watches Hayley's corpse burn on the river telling Hope this the last time they can ever be together.

In We Have Not Long To Love, due to Hope taking back the Dark Magic of the Hollow into herself, she and her dad are finally able to reunite together without the fall of New Orleans or the death of the firstborns. However, like Klaus and his siblings, there seems to be dire consequences for Hope being the vessel of the Hollow making Klaus extremely worried.
