Well, given that they are on two different shows, we’ve kept our expectations low. But, it was nice to see her mention his name in the last episode!
“It’s definitely a hint,” executive producer Julie Plec told TVLine.com. “This year, as we’ve crossed over, we’ve acknowledged [The Vampire Diaries and The Originals]‘ shared universe. As we know from The Originals, there’s a prophecy predicting the demise of the Mikaelson family, so it was a nice little tease for viewers of that show to ask themselves, ‘Wait, what the hell happened to Klaus?’”
Julie added about crossovers, “It’s a rare luxury to have two shows in a shared universe that you could do that. So to not do it feels like we’re missing a really fun creative opportunity, a way to celebrate both shows. But it’s not like anyone over at the network is calling us and being like, ‘You need two crossovers this year.’ I think it’d be fun to keep finding small, organic ways to do it. Like when we had Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig) show up on The Originals — that wasn’t for ratings, it just made logical sense that if the Originals were in Mystic Falls, they’d have a run-in with Deputy Donovan. I’d love to keep doing stuff like that. It’s fun, and it’s easier to accomplish than a massive two-show crossover.”
