The more we think about it, the less likely it seems like The Vampire Diaries will kill off Klaus (Joseph Morgan). Despite his recent mooning over Caroline (Candice Accola), the hybrid is a genuinely chilling character, and the series has only scratched the surface with him. Yet Stefan (Paul Wesley) is vowing revenge, and no one seems quite willing to let Klaus live out his days in peace. Oh, and the hybrid wants to build an unstoppable army, so that’s a pretty big con of keeping him around.

So if Klaus can’t live but the producers aren’t quite ready to part with him, well, he can always go on the run again, right? That seemed to be what Joseph Morgan was hinting at in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter:

“He’s wanted dead by the majority of Mystic Falls by now so the finale for Klaus, a lot of it is going to be about trying to survive. He’s going to make sure he secures Elena’s [Nina Dobrev] safety because she’s his source of doppelganger blood. If things start getting too hot, it’s going to be about making his escape intact — and I would imagine he’s going to want Elena and Rebekah [Claire Holt] with him.”

That would be quite the twist to end Season 3 on. Maybe the way to draw out the love triangle between Elena, Damon (Ian Somerhalder), and Stefan (Paul Wesley) is to have her disappear from Mystic Falls for awhile. Then Klaus could tromp through Season 4, with Rebekah and Elena in tow, as the Salvatore brothers try to save the woman they love…
