Fans of "The Originals" won't say goodbye quietly.
In the wake of show creator Julie Plec's announcement that the show's fifth season would be its final one, the series' loyal followers have been busy tweeting their demands for its conclusion. After sticking with "The Originals" for four seasons so far -- not to mention eight seasons of its predecessor, "The Vampire Diaries" -- many feel entitled to at least some say in its outcome. And they are not being shy about telling Plec what they "deserve."
Their requests vary, but some popular ones are a 22-episode season, happy endings for their favorite ships, and generally for her not to make a "mess" of it. We wish her luck with that -- there are some strong opinions out there.
The Klaroline camp was particularly loud, and they should be feeling good considering that Caroline (Candice King) and Klaus (Joseph Morgan) will see each other again when she appears in the Season 5 premiere.

Other fans haven't gotten over the death of Camille (Leah Pipes), and they want to see Klaus reunited with her -- dead or alive.
Give Klaus happy ending with Camille. I dream about scene when Klaus is dying and he knows that Cami is out there waiting for him #Klamille— Olivia (@dream_always_) July 20, 2017
Now kill Klaus and reunite him with Cami in the afterlife. pic.twitter.com/taYfOHiHVK— Samantha 🐪 (@Fragile_Fighter) July 20, 2017

Meanwhile, people are pulling for other couples, too, such as Kolvina and Haylijah.
And "Vampire Diaries" devotees aren't missing the chance to lobby for more Delena or Stelena.
GIVE US SOME DELENA MENTIONS ABOUT THEIR KIDS WE DESERVE IT— ang (@rafaelandjane) July 20, 2017
can you give us a stelena endgame or a doppelgänger one please— sara (@stxlxnalove) July 20, 2017
you better mention delena in every episode of this last season it's what you owe us one last time before killing us off forever.— angielena (@merdelena) July 20, 2017
However, some are more concerned with episode count than romances.
Well. Better not be another short ass season again. Do the series a real justice and send it off properly with a FULL season— Caty Michael (@MrsMichael1016) July 20, 2017
PLEASE, PLEASE GIVE US A WHOLE SEASON WITH THE WHOLE CAST 😭😭😭— DWTMexico ❤ (@hessgrande) July 20, 2017
WE HAVE TO BE ABLE TO SEE THEM ALL TOGETHER THROUGH THE FINAL SEASON 😭😭😭
And again, some people just want to make sure this doesn't suck.
this time, plec better make a dignified end to the originals and not turn it into a big f*cking mess like she did with tvd. god i wanna die— FILIPA 2 (@christophrcwood) July 20, 2017

Please don't screw the finale like you did with TVD— Jen Tudor ⚡️➰ || 310 (@booksftwinter) July 20, 2017
There's no way Plec is going to be able to please everyone in this crowd, even if she wanted to.
