Ain’t no party like an Originals party ‘cause an Originals party has Elijah (Daniel Gillies). The badass vampire is likely reading poetry by the seaside or drinking monastic spirits in an agrarian cloister as he contemplates the atrocities her perpetrated against Elena (Nina Dobrev). Sigh. Doesn’t he know his very survival is at stake?

When asked if we’d see Elijah anytime soon, Vampire Diaries’ executive producer Julie Plec replied with an enigmatic “Maybe,” TV Line reports. Surely Klaus (Joseph Morgan) sent Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic) on a recon mission to bring E back from wherever he’s moping. Let’s face it: Everyone’s trying to kill them, and if the Originals want to survive, enlisting Elijah can only help.

Though Daniel Gillies is busy with his new show, Saving Hope, there’s still a possibility he got in another few days of filming in Atlanta — right? (We hope, we hope, we hope!)
