We weren’t exactly surprised when it was announced that Vampire Diaries star Michael Trevino would be taking his on-screen persona Tyler Lockwood from Mystic Falls to the New Orleans setting of The Originals, but what is surprising is what he’s going to do during his visit.
And while we already know that the crossover will be seen before the end of November, we are finally getting to hear from co-executive producers Julie Plec and Michael Narducci are finally spilling the beans about the whole ordeal.
It seems that Tyler will be bringing “the first piece of the mystery of the protective wolf” with him. You know, the monster that destroyed all of the vamps out in the bayou. Personally, we’ve got our sights set on Hayley being the wolf, considering the fact that she can’t remember what happened.
"The whole thing that brought [Hayley] to New Orleans in the first place was trying to get answers about what bloodline she came from, the mystery of what this mark on her shoulder means," Julie tells E! Online. "One thing that Tyler does offer as he steps foot into this world is answers and more information. He takes her to a place out in the bayou where she's going to start to understand a little bit of where she comes from."
But don’t think that Tyler’s only going to come help Hayley. As Tyler already said, his sights are set on Klaus and his family of Originals.
Narducci teases that fans can also expect the crossover to "shake things up within the core dynamic of the Original family.” Uh-oh. Look out, Klaus!
The Originals airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
