As per most any CW television show, it’s hard to imagine The Originals without a healthy dose of romance — especially considering its source material The Vampire Diaries is constructed around a love triangle. But who might be shacking up with whom in Season 1 of The Originals? Daniel Gillies weighed in to Sugar Scape on potential romantic connections for his on-screen alter ego Elijah.

“There will definitely be romantic moments. You can’t have a Julie Plec show and not have couples within it — she adores that stuff, she’ll never exclude it from her writing,” Daniel said about romance on the show in general. He also acknowledged the relationships The Originals characters left behind on TVD (i.e. Elijah/Katherine, Klaus/Caroline), saying, “Perhaps I’m a little bit more brutal and cynical, but I feel that these relationships are made to be broken.” Harsh, but probably more dramatic!

But enough talk about potentially doomed crossover romances: What about the guys and girls on The Originals currently? “They will definitely hook Elijah up with somebody at some point, that’s for damn sure … Perhaps Sophie Deveraux? Or Leah Pipes’ character, Camille?” Daniel theorized. “I don’t know. It’s hard to say at this point. That’s for Julie to master and design.” Not much to go on, but we’ll take it. We definitely felt some romantic tension between both Elijah and revolutionary witch Sophie, as well as Elijah and psychologist bartender Cami. We’re especially intrigued to see where the latter relationship goes given that Cami seems to be the only non-supernatural in the cast.

And what about pregnant werewolf Hayley, who perhaps shared the most chemistry with Elijah in The Originals pilot? “There’s talk of him getting with Phoebe’s character [Hayley] as well, but who knows what will happen? We’ll just have to wait and see,” he said. We suppose we can do that, but it won’t be easy.

Who do you think Elijah will hook up with on The Originals? Share your theories in the comments below!
