This is probably not the welcome home Klaus (Joseph Morgan) was wishing for. The Original hybrid returns to Mystic Falls in a sneak peek video for The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 17, “Because the Night” to find a surly Caroline (Candice Accola) cleaning up after Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) rager. 

She’s also day drinking — the leftovers from plastic party cups. “Desperate times, I take it,” says Klaus as he strolls into the Salvatores’ living room. He recommends she try a less germ-filled approach to getting drunk.

“Should you be out chasing Tyler to the ends of the earth?” she asks, ignoring his advice. Klaus tries to explain to Caroline why he had to go after her hybrid boyfriend.

“Tyler made it his life’s mission to kill me,” he tells her. “You can’t hate me for driving him away.”

She can and does, but her anger will have to take a backseat. Stefan (Paul Wesley) enters the room to tell Vampire Barbie that he invited the Original home to help them with the Silas problem. “We need his help,” the younger Salvatore says.

That will be a fun trio to watch. We say how much fun Stefan and Caroline had at the party together. And as for Klaus, well, he should probably keep mum on the whole “I hooked up with Hayley” thing if he wants any shot with the blond vampire.
