Get ready, Vampire Diaries fans, because Tyler Lockwood is headed to New Orleans sooner than we thought! It looks like Michael Trevino will make his highly anticipated debut on The Originals in Season 1, Episode 7 ("Bloodletting").

Thanks to a super-spoilery sneak peek that aired during tonight's episode of The Vampire Diaries, we now know that it looks like Tyler will be arriving in NOLA next week, a little sooner than creator Julie Plec teased. We already know that Tyler is going to be helping Hayley uncover her past when he arrives in the French Quarter, though exactly what he’ll reveal about her past, we can only speculate.

We also know Tyler will go head-to-head with his maker Klaus — and it's going to be intense. In the promo, we see Klaus run at someone in the bayou — and from the recently released sneak peek, it looks like that person is Tyler. Does this mean Tyler is the one who kidnapped Hayley? Or does Klaus just wander upon his camp?

Looks like we'll have to wait and see, Originals fans!
