The Originals Spoilers: Will Klaus Get a New Romance?
If the Internet feels a bit warmer today, it’s probably a result of that steamy forest hookup scene between Caroline (Candice Accola) and Klaus (Joseph Morgan) in last night’s 100th episode of The Vampire Diaries. Executive producer Julie Plec called the scene a way to “pay off” the Klaroline journey, implying that this is the end — for now — of Klaroline crossovers. Does this mean Klaus will be getting his very own love interest on The Originals?
Not any time soon! Julie seems to think Klaus is a bit too busy trying to control the French Quarter (and his own family) to pursue matters of the heart. “The thing is Klaus has got a lot going on on The Originals, and somewhere in there there's room for a little bit of romance down the road,” Julie told E! Online. “Really, this was more about giving that storyline the ending, I guess, for now at least, that it needed, that it didn't have yet.”
We guess that’s...good? Frankly, we’re still a little confused where the Klaroline hookup leaves these two characters. Surely, that can’t be the end of their story! If they were on the same show, we’d assume everything that went down in last night’s ep was the start of a new, more intense chapter in their stories. But since they dwell on different shows, we’re not so sure. Geez, crossovers are hard.
Julie’s answer seems to rule out any imminent developments in the Klaus/Cami romance some speculated was blossoming on The Originals. Of course, those speculations came mostly before Cami remembered all of the memories Klaus had compelled her to forget and joined forces against him. So, maybe not totally unexpected.
Do you think this is the end for Klaroline? Do you think Klaus has any room for romance in his life on The Originals? Sound off in the comments below!
