“I’ve wanted to do this for a really long time and find a way to do it that didn’t feel like we were jamming story for the sake of cross-pollinating the shows,” EP Julie Plec told Variety.
It sounds like we’ll finally seen a reunion between former-besties-but-mostly-enemies Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Klaus (Joseph Morgan)!
“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.

The cast of The Originals shares an inside joke at the Getty Images Portrait Studio powered by Samsung Galaxy during 2015 Comic-Con held at Hard Rock Hotel on Friday afternoon (July 10) in San Diego, Calif.
She confessed that she has “complicated feelings for a monster” and they nearly kissed at the end of the episode!
“I honestly think that Cami looks at him with just as much sympathy as she does any legitimate romantic affection,” EP Michael Narducci told EW. “Sometimes some people have an instinctive need to help people, and I think if you’re someone who goes to graduate school to be a psychologist, you’re one of those people that has a desire to try and help and fix people, even when you know that maybe it’s a lost cause. I think that there is a very interesting connection that these people have, the two wounded souls.”
He added, “But right now, I think it would be premature to have them each dive bomb into some kind of hurried romantic relationship. I think first Cami wants to see if she can get him to explore other sides of himself. And for Klaus, I think he knows that if he were to become a good person, that would only put the people he cares about most in danger because he protects them best when he is his savage self. That’s not going to change because there are a lot of people out there who hate the Mikaelsons and there are a lot of enemies. So it’s going to be a hard time for Klaus to change.”
