In “No More Heartbreaks”, following a violent encounter that has left Cami’s (Leah Pipes) life hanging in the balance, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) is forced to rely on his family and allies to find a cure as he keeps a watchful eye over Cami at the compound. With time running out, Freya (Riley Voelkel) turns to her arsenal of spells, while Vincent (Yusuf Gatewood) and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) head to Cami’s apartment to gather a crucial ingredient.
Elsewhere, Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) travel to the bayou in hopes of bringing back a potential antidote that could save Cami’s life.
Finally, Davina confronts Lucien and learns some heartbreaking information that will change her future with Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic) forever.
“No More Heartbreaks” airs TONIGHT, Friday, April 29th @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.
In “The Devil Comes Here and Sighs”, as the city celebrates its annual Jazz Fest, an unlikely team of Mikaelson foes joins forces to take Klaus hostage. Leading the charge to get their brother back, Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Freya (Riley Voelkel) face off against a powerful force like none they’ve ever seen before, while Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) and Cami (Leah Pipes) set their own risky plan in motion to rescue Klaus.
In “Behind the Black Horizon”, when its discovered that Freya has been kidnapped and is in the hands of a dangerous new threat, the Mikaelson brothers are forced to put aside their differences in order to save her before it’s too late.
Following a lead that brings them to Mystic Falls, Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Finn (Casper Zafer) run into deputy Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig), who does not take well to new vampires in his town.
The Originals executive producer Michael Narducci is talking about the potential for fan favorite couple Caroline (Candice King) and Klaus (Joseph Morgan).
“I don’t want to speak for what they’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 I’m sure there are people who will read this and howl and be angry; I can’t fault them for their passion.”
He continued, “Klaus and Stefan (Paul Wesley) had that moment in that cemetery where Stefan basically said, ‘I hope I never have to see you again, because when I do see you, it causes me a lot of problems.’ Klaus kind of just said, ‘Do right by Caroline, and if you do that, you’ll never have to worry about me again.’ Klaus still wants what’s best for Caroline. I don’t think there’s a doubt in anyone’s mind that that’s the case.”
“To me, if you still love someone and you know someone else is with them, you’re not wishing them well and saying, ‘Take good care of her.’ It’s impossible for him not to hate Stefan in that moment — unless he’s willing to let Caroline move on,” Michael added.
There’s another Vampire Diaries & Originals crossover on the way!
Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Finn (Caspar Zafer) will head to Mystic Falls and run into a familiar face in the April 8 episode of The Originals, titled “Behind the Black Horizon.”
“[I] know the fans — they love the shared universe and they love to see that these characters still interact in the same big wide world and if Matt (Zach Roerig) is interacting with Elijah — that’s a reminder that these characters still function in the same place,” executive producer Michael Narducci told Access Hollywood. “For me, as a creator, what’s really exciting is that Matt was the one who killed Finn in Season 3 with a white oak stake and so now it’s Finn, who has recently been brought back through magic to rejoin his family, [who] is coming face-to-face with the guy who killed him. And I think that that’s interesting and it’s also interesting as a reminder that even though he’s just a human being, Matt Donovan’s a tough guy who, when push comes to shove, given the right weapons, can even take down an Original, so I thought that was pretty cool.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK of Matt Donovan showing up on The Originals?
In “An Old Friend Calls”, when Klaus (Joseph Morgan) learns that Cortez (Matt Cedeno), an old vampire with a vendetta against him, has arrived in New Orleans, he finds himself forced to deal with this new threat.
Meanwhile, when Cortez begins threatening the lives of innocent residents, Vincent (Yusuf Gatewood) has no choice but to help the vengeful vampire in his plan to take down Klaus.
First, in “Moonlight on the Bayou” (The Vampire Diaries), in order to lure a vengeful vampire hunter named Rayna Cruz (Leslie-Anne Huff) away from his friends in Mystic Falls, Stefan (Paul Wesley) heads to New Orleans, where Valerie (Elizabeth Blackmore) has learned of a safe house that can protect him. Once there, he comes face to face with Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan), who soon becomes suspicious of his old friend’s unexpected arrival in his city.
Meanwhile, Enzo (Michael Malarkey), who is working on behalf of a mysterious organization called The Armory, approaches Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) with a plan that could protect Stefan from Rayna.
Then, in “A Streetcar Named Desire” (The Originals), with the threat of the prophecy looming over their heads, Klaus and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) find themselves rendered useless inside a magical trap, while Aya (Tracy Ifeachor) and The Strix’s coven of witches move forward with a risky spell that could take one of them down for good.
Elsewhere, Freya (Riley Voelkel) leads the charge to get her brothers back and enlists the help of Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) and Stefan Salvatore,, whose unexpected arrival may be the key to their survival.
The Vampire Diaries and The Originals crossover happens TONIGHT, Friday, February 26th @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.
The Vampire Diaries | Moonlight on the Bayou Trailer
Will the show be picked up for an eighth season, even after it was moved to Friday nights?
“Well I sure hope so!” Julie wrote. “I know we have a very large crew and cast of people who really want to be doing what we love on this show next year, so keep your fingers crossed.”
And what if it doesn’t come back? Does that mean the end of The Originals too?
“No, it won’t,” Julie said, “The Originals are here to stay as long as you’ll have us. Also, if and when TVD ends, it would be fun to see some of our favorites from Mystic Falls find their way to NOLA.”
