But according to a new spoiler from TVLine, some more Mystic Falls residents may join the ancient vampires in New Orleans. “I am assured that TVD regulars definitely appear in the planted pilot, but the exact and complete RSVP list is a well-guarded secret – including who appears in New Orleans, in Mystic Falls, or in both settings,” Matt Mitovich writes.
Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) already told MTV’s 10 on Top that he’s not headed thto e Big Easy: “They’re shooting in New Orleans, and I’m from New Orleans, and I’m the only actor not going down there to shoot. I mean, what’s that?”
But that doesn’t mean it’s a totally Damon-less episode. “We get a week off, ‘cause we’re not really in the episode — I mean, we are,” Ian told Pop Sugar, confusingly. We’re guessing the elder Salvatore is one of the vampires we see in Mystic Falls.
Who do you most hope to see tag along with the Originals? Dare Klaroline fans hope that Caroline (Candice Accola) suddenly starts craving gumbo and just has to ride down there with Klaus (Joseph Morgan)? Crazier road trips have happened!
