Evil vamp Kol Mikaelson (Nathaniel Buzolic) was banished from this mortal plane in the Season 4 finale of The Vampire Diaries. Right? So what is Nathaniel doing in this on-set pic TVD production assistant Ty Armstead just posted on Instagram?

The snapshot of Nathaniel adorably snoozing on-set is actually Ty’s most recent contribution to “Throwback Thursday,” which means - false alarm! - it’s actually from Season 4 of TVD.

It seems that Kol won’t be visiting Jeremy a la Bonnie in Season 5 of the supernatural drama anytime soon. (Too bad. Ghost Bonnie and Ghost Kol battling for Jeremy “I can see dead people” Gilbert’s attention has great comedic potential.)

No sign of Kol dodging death (again) to show up in The Originals to visit the rest of the Mikaelson clan either, though Mikaelson patriarch Mikael will be making an appearance in The Originals’ Season 1 premiere. If we were Kol, we’d stay away, too! His father has a bit of a murderous streak - even in flashbacks...

Do you want Kol to come back to TVD or The Originals? Sound off in the comments below!
