When Tyler goes head-to-head with his sworn enemy Klaus on Episode 7 (“Bloodletting”) of The Originals, a certain blonde will be at the center of the tension. How will Klaus react when he finds out Tyler broke up with the object of his affection, Caroline?

“You would figure that Klaus is going to take a jab or two,” Vampire Diaries star Michael Trevino told TVLine about Tyler and Klaus’s heated confrontation. “He’s going to be a smartass and… ruffle Tyler’s feathers, so to speak.”

If there’s one thing Klaus is good at, it’s getting under Tyler’s skin. Not only did he fall in love with his girl, but Klaus also murdered Tyler’s mother after Hayley told Klaus all about their little plan to free his hybrids. Needless to say, there’s a lot of history between these two characters, so it makes sense Tyler would be the first Mystic Falls resident to pay the big bad hybrid a visit in New Orleans. But will someone else follow Tyler to the Big Easy?

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like our beloved blond baby vampire will be making the trip any time soon. After all, she’s still reeling from her breakup with Tyler, so he’s not exactly number one of her list of people she wants to see right now.

“It sounds like there’s a lot going on in New Orleans without throwing Caroline into the mix,” Vampire Diaries star Candice Accola told TVLine. “Caroline’s really focused on staying in college right now and going through a breakup.”

But don’t lose hope just yet, Klaroline fans. When Tyler comes to town, Caroline will definitely come up in conversation, so we’ll take this small victory. (Plus, Cami is on her own mission to take down Klaus, so we don’t think those two are headed anywhere anytime soon.)

Are you excited to see Klaus and Tyler go head-to-head on The Originals this week? Do you wish Caroline would come to NOLA? Sound off in the comments!
