If there’s one thing we’ve learned about Klaus from watching The Vampire Diaries, it’s that he doesn’t have very many friends. In fact, the Big Bad only has one friend — and that’s Caroline. But now that she’s back in Mystic Falls and he’s waging war in New Orleans on The Originals, it’s time for Klaus to start making friends with another pretty blonde — bartender Cami.

After Marcel takes an interest in Cami, it looks like she’s caught in the middle of a power play between Klaus and Marcel.  

“Very early on, we’ll see that she catches the eye of Marcel,” executive producer Michael Narducci told TVLine. “So if you’re Klaus, and you want to get to the bottom of Marcel and his power dynamic, it’s very interesting to notice that this girl Cami has caught Marcel’s eye.”

As Klaus starts to interact more with Cami, an unlikely friendship starts to form. For now, the EP said they’re staying away from the obvious romance element of the story (after all, Klaus is still very much hung up on Caroline).

“I think it’s far more interesting to play just a human connection, ’cause he doesn’t really have a lot of friends,” he said. “Klaus is someone who either kills you or manipulates you. Cami is someone who is educated enough that he might take a pause and just be curious to get to know her.”

Plus, they share an interest in art, which, as we know, is the key to winning over Klaus. So don’t give up hope yet, Klaroline fans. It looks like Cami is destined to be friendzoned for the time being, which is probably a good thing considering Klaus is about to be a dad — oh, and that Cami is still very much human.

What do you think, TVD fans: Are you a fan of Cami? Do you think these two are destined for romance? Sound off in the comments!
