“So we’re sitting in the room, and the plot point is that Stefan is in trouble and he’s being pursued by means of magic so how can we get him safe? Well, let’s get him to a place where there’s no magic. And I was like, ‘Oh sh-t! St. James Infirmary!” Julie explained. “There’s a place where there’s no magic that can work in New Orleans!’ And the whole writer’s room just went, ‘Yay! Finally!’ because they’ve been waiting so long for that opportunity.”
The crossover will span over two episodes, one for each of the shows.
“Stefan will go to New Orleans in a Vampire Diaries episode and then he will remain in New Orleans in The Originals to help Klaus deal with a problem that is super specific to Stefan’s survival.”
Oh, and what about Klaus finding out that Stefan is dating Caroline (Candice King)?!
“There is a presence of Caroline buried within that, but I can’t really say in what context,” Julie said.
