Uh-uh. Do not read if you haven’t seen The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 20, “The Originals.”
!!! No, not the band. That’s just how we feel after The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 20, “The Originals.” TV Guide talked to Joseph Morgan about Klaus’s baby. Yeah, we can’t believe we just typed that sentence.
"[Klaus's] idea of family will change forever," says Joseph. "There has never been the potential to have someone else join the family. ... What will this baby be?!"
Um, excellent question. Klaus and Hayley’s (Phoebe Tonkin) extracurricular activities apparently bore the fruit if Klaus’s hybridity, and now she’s pregnant with his child. Our minds are still reeling over how that could’ve happened.
This baby is like a hybrid-hybrid now, right? In any case, Klaus’s world is about to be flipped on its head. “It's a change to the idea of how the mythology works, but it's also a fundamental challenge to his character,” Joseph explains.
Klaus is going to have to man up, basically. Before Elijah (Daniel Gillies) intervened, the Original was ready to let both Hayley and his unborn child die. Now that he sees his future baby as an heir, perhaps he’ll be less likely to get rid of them.
Klaus has always been about family and loyalty. Let’s just hope he doesn’t take any cues from his own parents — both of whom wanted him dead.
