There was a jaw-dropping moment at the end of the Vampire Diaries Season 3 finale — and we’re not talking about the last three seconds of the episode. Before that, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) revealed that he’d taken over Tyler’s (Michael Trevino) body and stolen a kiss from his minion’s girl. Julie Plec told Wetpaint Entertainment at the CBS TCA All-Star Party that Klaus’s antics aren’t over yet when the show returns in Season 4, and Caroline (Candice Accola) isn’t going to be a happy vampire.
Wetpaint Entertainment: As far as Klaus is in Tyler's body. What happens next?
Julie Plec: What happens next is some awkward, ill‑timed, mischievous and otherwise naughty high jinks that begin and end quickly enough to still be fun, but definitely make Caroline very indignant.
So Klaus is definitely taking advantage of the fact that he is in Tyler's body?
I don't think he necessarily means to take advantage of that, but there is a moment in which — there is a shirt that comes off under false pretenses. So we'll just leave it at that.
Michael Trevino already said that Tyler comes back into his own body fairly soon. Are we done with Joseph Morgan?
No. Joseph Morgan will be right back. The minute Tyler's back in his own body, Joseph will be back in his. A little bit charred and worse for the wear, but he's a vampire, he can heal.
What should we know about the Tyler, Caroline, and Klaus triangle?
I think the important thing to know is that Caroline loves Tyler deeply. Caroline, especially after the first episode, will continue to loathe Klaus in spite of her strange fascination with him that sneaks in every now and then. Klaus is not giving up on Caroline, but he's by no means going to be a sick puppy dog. In fact, I think, he's going to get some perverse pleasure out of seeking alternate means to drive a wedge between Caroline and Tyler over the course of the season. So it's a slow play. He's a long-term thinker, Klaus.
