The Originals was always a superior show to The Vampire Diaries. But it completely missed the mark with its series finale. It teased a relationship for Klaus and Caroline but ripped it from them when Klaus and Elijah killed themselves to save Hope's life. Side note: Caroline's previous love, Stefan Salvatore also sacrificed himself. Despite the uproar over the conclusion, the franchise continued with Legacies, a show that focuses on the daughter of Klaus.
