Poor Tyler (Michael Trevino). He’s been run out of town on The Vampire Diaries too often to count. In Season 4, his move seemed more permanent than usual, with Klaus (Joseph Morgan) threatening the hybrid’s life should he return to Mystic Falls.

Of course, Caroline (Candice Accola) has a problem with that, which may or may not convince the Original to let her boyfriend life. When Wetpaint Entertainment spoke with Joseph Morgan, we had to know what Klaus’s plans for Tyler are.

When we asked if we’d seen the end of their power struggle, Joseph replied, “That's going to achieve some resolve by the end of the season in terms of Klaus making it clear. He really holds Tyler's fate in his hand at the moment.”

In Season 4, Episode 19, “Pictures of You,” Klaus let his former minion live for Caroline’s sake. Now that Klaus is headed to New Orleans permanently — for the TVD spin-off The Originals — Klaus will make some proclamations about Tyler’s future. Joseph explains, “He's going to make it clear what's OK and what's not OK as far as Tyler goes. So yeah, that's not just going to be left open.”

Do you think the hybrid will grant Tyler a reprieve?
