Everyone at the diner table may have cringed when Katherine (Nina Dobrev) said Elijah (Daniel Gillies) is her special “friend,” but we get it. He’s such a gentleman! And those suits.
In the last episode, he walked away from her, but in a recent interview, Joseph Morgan told Just Jared that Klaus’s brother may not be over the doppelganger just yet. In fact, he may try to strike a deal, similar to the one Caroline (Candice Accola) has attempted for Tyler (Michael Trevino) in Season 4, Episode 19, “Pictures of You.”
“I’ll tell you this,” says Joseph, “his brother is going to ask him to do that. I’ll tell you that much, but I’m not going to tell you how Klaus reacts to that.”
These Originals’ relationships are so complicated! Right now, Elijah holds the cure — something Klaus wants very badly. The ancient vampire could possibly broker a trade for Katherine’s freedom, but the hybrid isn’t one to let go of grudges so easily. He’s tracked Kat for centuries, remember. And he’s really hung up on his idea of a hybrid army.
It is a romantic gesture, though. Of course, Kat could be playing everyone, including her friend with benefits. So help us, if she breaks Elijah’s heart...
