After hearing the news that Tyler Lockwood (Michael Trevino) will be the first Vampire Diaries character to cross over to The Originals, we couldn’t help but devise some theories about why the character would pay a visit to New Orleans.

We’re still not sure what Tyler’s motives for the trip down south are or what he’s planning to do there. Luckily, The Originals executive producers Julie Plec and Michael Narducci sat down with Entertainment Tonight and addressed some of our biggest concerns including when we can expect to see Tyler on the new series.

“The crossover is happening very soon,” Julie said. “I’m fairly certain we will see our first glimpse of Tyler before November is over. It will answer a couple of questions, one of which is at least answering the first piece of the mystery of the protective wolf.”

Julie also hinted that Tyler’s need for revenge on Klaus isn’t the only reason he has for coming to New Orleans.

“A lot of things will come out of that crossover that will shake things up in the core dynamic of the original family,” Michael explained. “There will be a whole storyline that will come out of where that crossover leads them geographically and what they discover when they’re there.”

“That’s not what it sounds like — it’s not like they head back to Mystic Falls” Julie added. “One of the big things Hayley has been asking herself, quietly, and the whole thing that brought her to New Orleans in the first place is trying to get answers about what bloodline she came from, what this mark on her shoulder means and the one thing Tyler does offer with his presence in this world is answers and more information. He sort of takes her to a place out in the bayou where she’s going to start understanding a bit of where she comes from.”

We had a feeling former best friends Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) and Tyler were in for some serious conversations. Given that these two didn’t part on the best of terms and the fact that Hayley is carrying Klaus’s unborn child, we’re curious to see how the duo’s relationship progresses.
