The official synopsis reads as follows:

Everything we love turns into Ash.With time running out, Klaus' ultimate plan to protect baby Hope at all costs continues to take shape. As tensions between the siblings come to a head, Cami reveals a vital piece of information that causes Elijah and Rebekah to reconsider their plan of attack against Dahlia. Davina finds herself one step closer to fulfilling the promise she made to Kol, while Freya is forced to take drastic measures to protect herself against Dahlia. Elsewhere, Marcel has to put aside his fury at Klaus in order to protect himself and everyone in their sire line. Meanwhile, Vincent finds himself torn between the prospects of a magic-free life away from New Orleans and a personal obligation to protect Davina. Finally, with their risky plan in place, the Mikaelson siblings prepare for the fight of their lives.

In the pre-finale episode, Klaus tormented his family, trapped Hayley and the rest of the Crescent wolves under a new curse, forced Rebekah to try to kill herself and stabbed Elijah. But was all this part of a plan to stop Dahlia?

In the finale, we will see Claire Holt return to play Rebekah, who has spoken about the conflict in the family.

"Rebekah and Elijah are extremely conflicted," Claire Holt told TV Guide. "Once again, they're puppets in Klaus' game and they have a hard time realizing that their futures are constantly dictated by him," she added.

"But they can see there's a method to his madness at times and as dysfunctional as this family is and despite the betrayals and treachery, there is something special about the three of them and the way they unite for a common cause," Holt states.

Meanwhile, executive producer Julie Plec said, "This whole season was set against a fable-esque tonal background and the story of the family legacy of the people who created and begat the Original family and we do bring it nicely to a close. That's not to say there's not more out there, but it [finale episode] has a great finality to it."
