The Originals executive producer Michael Narducci is talking about the potential for fan favorite couple Caroline (Candice King) and Klaus (Joseph Morgan).
“I donâ€™t want to speak for what theyâ€™re doing on [The Vampire Diaries], but it certainly seemed like Klaus was saying to Caroline that he would always care for her and respect her, but that he understood she had moved on,” Michael told TVLine.com. “I know there are fans that want that relationship to continue, so Iâ€™m sure there are people who will read this and howl and be angry; I canâ€™t fault them for their passion.”
He continued, “Klaus and Stefan (Paul Wesley) had that moment in that cemetery where Stefan basically said, â€˜I hope I never have to see you again, because when I do see you, it causes me a lot of problems.â€™ Klaus kind of just said, â€˜Do right by Caroline, and if you do that, youâ€™ll never have to worry about me again.â€™ Klaus still wants whatâ€™s best for Caroline. I donâ€™t think thereâ€™s a doubt in anyoneâ€™s mind that thatâ€™s the case.”
“To me, if you still love someone and you know someone else is with them, youâ€™re not wishing them well and saying, â€˜Take good care of her.â€™ Itâ€™s impossible for him not to hate Stefan in that moment â€” unless heâ€™s willing to let Caroline move on,” Michael added.
“[In] next weekâ€™s episodes, in which Stefan makes his way to New Orleans in the present, and Caroline hits up magic-free zone St. James Infirmary in the flash-forward. You can expect some great scenes reminiscent of season 3 Klaus and Stefan moments. A surprising generosity from one Klaus Mikaelson,” Julie wrote.
She added, “An awkward moment where Stefan realizes heâ€™s not sure if Klaus knows he and Caroline are a couple, and a really beautiful phone call between Klaus and Caroline. Also a little Easter Egg surprise that will make you ask some big questions about how The Originals will end their season.”
Not the big reunion we pictured in our minds, BUT, it’s still a reunion, sort of; and we’ll take it.
“Iâ€™ve wanted to do this for a really long time and find a way to do it that didnâ€™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 weâ€™re sitting in the room, and the plot point is that Stefan is in trouble and heâ€™s being pursued by means of magic so how can we get him safe? Well, letâ€™s get him to a place where thereâ€™s no magic. And I was like, â€˜Oh sh-t! St. James Infirmary!” Julie explained. “Thereâ€™s a place where thereâ€™s no magic that can work in New Orleans!â€™ And the whole writerâ€™s room just went, ‘Yay! Finally!’ because theyâ€™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 Stefanâ€™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 canâ€™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 youâ€™re someone who goes to graduate school to be a psychologist, youâ€™re one of those people that has a desire to try and help and fix people, even when you know that maybe itâ€™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. Thatâ€™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 itâ€™s going to be a hard time for Klaus to change.”
