'The Originals' Season 2 finale: Daniel Gillies recognizes the Mikaelsons' 'end of days'


As "The Originals" reaches its Season 2 finale, it seems there may finally be a way to stop Dahlia (Claudia Black) from taking baby Hope and unleashing a horrible evil on the world. It's just not going to be easy.
After leaving a trail of blood and devastation, Niklaus (Joseph Morgan) has a plan that involves his Mikaelson siblings -- Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Rebekah (guest star Claire Holt) -- but can they actually trust him?
Zap2it spoke with Gillies about that very question and more, including what he refers to as the "end of days" for the Mikaelsons and whether there is any hope to save them in the end.

There’s a devastation that’s always lingering around them and they can’t get through it without annihilating one another.
— Daniel Gillies

Zap2it: At the end of the season it looks like the Mikaelsons are coming together, but that may nor even be fully possible. While Klaus claims to have a plan to kill Dahlia, he's shown time and again to the family that he can't exactly be trusted. Going into this last episode, what can you tease for this showdown?

Daniel Gillies: It's funny, you just said something really interesting. You think [the Mikaelsons] are coming together but you don't. They're sort of doomed, this family. The closer they come to one another, the more destructive energy there is around each other. [It's] like when you play with two magnets and they just sort of repulse at the last moment. They desire to be together but then they sort of push one another away.
