With Rebecca (Claire Holt) gone for the foreseeable future, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) isn’t wasting any time moving on from his family drama and looking for love. In the episodic photos from Season 1, Episode 17 (“Moon Over Bourbon Street”), it looks like the OG hybrid is sinking his teeth into the reigning leader of the witches.

In this pic from the March 18 episode, Klaus has Genevieve (Elyse Levesque) pressed up a brick wall out in public. The two supernatural folk are all smiles and look like they’re about to share an intimate kiss. Gen is giving us all kinds of sexy and Klaus looks like he’s ready to pounce. This kind of seems like it’s coming out of nowhere, right?

This potential hookup raises a few questions for us. First of all, is this all a ruse in order to foster an alliance between the vampires and the witches just like Klaus had achieved back in 1919 before all hell broke loose? Is there real chemistry here? We think there could be. And, moreover, is this the final nail in the coffin for the Klaroline ship? Joseph did just say that the hookup Klaus and Caroline (Candice Accola) shared in the 100th episode of The Vampire Diaries was a “goodbye” to the fan-favorite relationship, after all.

We have so many questions and need answers. Like, right now.
