We have no idea what’s going on, but we’re going to do some analysis of each photo and try to figure it out.
Photo 1: Caroline and the gardening too.
The last time we saw Klaus, he was getting the indestructible white oak stake broken off in his back by Silas/Shane (David Alpay). The tip was likely still lodged in there, so perhaps Caroline is being helpful by removing it?
Whatever’s going on, it brings Klaus to his knees.
The promo video also offers a bit of insight. “I will bring you nothing but misery,” Caroline tells the shirtless hybrid, who’s on all fours, in a quick snippet.
Frankly, it doesn’t really sound like Caroline. And how could she bring Klaus nothing but misery? She’s delightful. Perhaps that bit of white oak did some psychological damage to Klaus, and he’s hallucinating? Rebekah(Claire Holt) had a similar reaction to the werewolf-venom-laced beer: It didn’t kill her, but it did make her see some truly terrifying things.
