The day is finally upon us! Tonight we’ll get to see Tyler Lockwood (Michael Trevino) bring his well-chiseled jawline on The Originals in the show’s first crossover with its source material, The Vampire Diaries. How will Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) react to former BFF Tyler’s arrival? Read on to find out!
Michael tells TVLine that Hayley is “probably not on [Tyler’s] good side,” given that she played a part in the murder of his mother, aka the dastardly deed the handsome hybrid has vowed revenge on Klaus (Joseph Morgan) for committing. In Season 4 of TVD, Hayley told Klaus about Tyler’s plan to send him into Rebekah’s body, then Han Solo him in cement. To get revenge, Klaus not only killed all of Tyler’s un-sired hybrid buddies, but his mother, Carol Lockwood, as well. The hybrid death’s were the outcome Hayley needed to ensure Professor Shane would give her information about her family. Yeah, it was a rough episode.
Upon his arrival to New Orleans, Michael says Tyler will set out “to make [Hayley] realize” just how pissed he is about her part in the tragedies — a fact Hayley, being the smart girl that she is, presumably quickly picks up on. Phoebe said about the episode: “We realize [Tyler]’s a little disappointed in Hayley and the situation that she’s in.” This presumably does not bode well for the Hayley’s supernatural bun in the oven, aka Papa Klaus’s greatest weakness.
In other news, we will be getting more information regarding the mysterious wolf who has been protecting Hayley. Phoebe said: “We learn a bit more in the coming episodes exactly who that wolf is, why that wolf is following Hayley and why there are werewolves when it’s not a full moon.” Given what we know about Tyler’s current feelings toward Klaus and Hayley, does that mean he is not the wolf who has been helping her? Might this be the family that Hayley has so desperately sought out?
