Joseph Morgan Had No Idea What Klaus Did in 'The Vampire Diaries' Finale!

Joseph Morgan is opening up about his character Klaus Mikaelson’s role in The Vampire Diaries finale!

The Originals
star’s character had a very small, but important role in the finale, but Joseph shared with TooFab that he had no clue what was going to happen.

In the Vampire Diaries finale, Klaus gifted his ex Caroline with a $3 million donation for her Salvatore Boarding School for the Young and Gifted.

“I didn’t know about it before,” Joseph said. “I kind of expected they would do something, because, you know, leave no stone un-turned for the finale I guess. How much was the check?”

When Joseph learned about what Klaus did, he was in shock. “Oh wow, there you go!”

Along with the check, Klaus sent Caroline a super sweet note to his ex.

“Dear Caroline, I have often imagined the paths your life might take, but your chosen future is more noble than I ever fathomed. Please accept this contribution to your virtuous cause. I do look forward to thanking you in person, someday. However long it takes. Yours, Klaus.”

This Is Why Stelena Didn't End Up Together on 'The Vampire Diaries'

This Is Why Stelena Didn't End Up Together on 'The Vampire Diaries'

Stelena fans, you may want to read this.

The Vampire Diaries executive producers Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson both confirmed that had Nina Dobrev not left the show in season six, Stefan and Elena probably would have found heir way back together romantically.

“I wanted to see if there was a way to bring Stefan and Elena back together one more time,” Julie told TheWrap.com. “But Nina left the show and that sealed Delena in for life.”

Kevin told Deadline, “I always thought it would be Stefan and Elena. They were sort of the anchor of the show, but because we lost Elena in Season 6, we couldn’t go back. You know Nina could only come back for one episode – maybe if she had came back for the whole season, we could even have warped back towards that, but you can’t just do it in 42 minutes.”

TELL JJJ: Do you wish you would have seen Stelena reunite?

In case you missed it, the Delena proposal was cut from the series finale.

Damon's Proposal to Elena Was Cut From 'The Vampire Diaries' Finale

Damon's Proposal to Elena Was Cut From 'The Vampire Diaries' Finale

While we were so satisfied with the end of The Vampire Diaries, a major moment had to be cut that we would have loved to see!

Executive producer Kevin Williamson just revealed that Damon’s (Ian Somerhalder) proposal to Elena (Nina Dobrev) was left on the cutting room floor due to time constraints in the episode.

“We actually had a moment, which we didn’t have time for — everything got cut,” Kevin told TVGuide.com. “I think the first cut came in 18 minutes over. And there was a moment in the show where he proposed and she responded after medical school. And the whole point of that moment was just to show that she became a doctor. And so we thought, ‘Oh, we’ll just put her in scrubs and we can cut that piece.””

In case you missed it, Kevin also recently talked about why Stefan (Paul Wesley) had to die in the finale.

TELL JJJ: Would you have wanted to see the Delena proposal?

This Steroline Moment Made Nina Dobrev Cry During 'The Vampire Diaries' Finale

We weren’t the only ones tearing up during The Vampire Diaries series finale. So were the actors!

In fact, Nina Dobrev recently shared her thoughts about the emotional final hour.

“I am satisfied with the way the show ends — the fact that Elena finds peace and becomes human, which is what she always wanted,” Nina told EW.com.” She gets to be with the man that she loves [Ian Somerhalder's Damon], which is what she always wanted. She gets to say goodbye to her former love and now best friend. I cried during a lot of moments. I didn’t get the chance to be at the final read-through unfortunately but maybe that’s for the best because I would’ve been a mess.”

She added, “I cried during Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Caroline’s (Candice King) final moments, because it broke my heart. I cried at the end when I read that Elena was writing in the diary again, when Elena basically says the same sentence that I did in the pilot eight years ago.”

In case you missed it, find out what Paul and Ian thought of the finale too!

'The Vampire Diaries' EP Explains Why [SPOILER] Had To Die in Series Finale

'The Vampire Diaries' EP Explains Why [SPOILER] Had To Die in Series Finale

If you’re still upset over that shocking death during The Vampire Diaries finale, this may ease some of your pain.

Executive producer Kevin Williamson explains that the writers talked about a lot of different scenarios before deciding – SPOILER ALERT! – Stefan (Paul Wesley) was the one who had to die.

“Oh, everyone was supposed to die. There were so many conversations in the writers’ room,” Kevin told TVGuide.com. “Everyone had these great ideas. I’m only sad that we couldn’t put everything in there because it was only 42.5 minutes. But there were so many possibilities. It was very important for us not to kill Bonnie (Kat Graham). Bonnie should not have to die for Elena’s happiness. It was this conversation of, ‘Oh, Bonnie can go be with Enzo (Michael Malarkey) because that’s exactly what she would want.’ Like, no. That’s not what Enzo would want. Bonnie needs a full, rich life. She needs a happy ending. So that was important to us, so we couldn’t kill Bonnie.”

“And we can’t kill [Matt, Zach Roerig], because if he’s lived this long as a human, he needs to continue on,” Kevin explained. “If we were going to kill him, it had to have been in Season 4. You can’t do it in Season 8. It was really between Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan. You know, we got rid of Katherine. We killed Katherine. We knew we were going to take her out. There was a conversation that Damon and Stefan both died. And then there was a conversation that it just ended with Damon killing Katherine and saving the town and saving everyone. For me, where the story was when I came in and got involved, Stefan had just been the Ripper for a long period of time and killed Enzo. And the only way for him to come back from that, I felt, was to kill him. That’s why he had to die.”

TELL JJJ: What did you think of Stefan dying on TVD?

In case you missed it, this is who Elena was originally supposed to end up with!

Nina Dobrev Says Goodbye To 'Vampire Diaries' Family With Throwback Photos

Nina Dobrev has us welling up over these sweet throwback pics from her time on The Vampire Diaries over the past eight years.

The 28-year-old actress took to Instagram to write sweet messages about all of her co-stars and the creators of the show – Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson.

About Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder, Nina wrote, “My undead brothers… I thought vampires weren’t supposed to age. Lol. We definitely don’t look the same after 8 years, but the make up helped. Raising a glass to celebrate 8 wonderful seasons together, it has been such a beautiful (and liver damaging) adventure knowing you all. Cheers family. #TVDForever”

'The Vampire Diaries' Finale - This Is How It Was Originally Supposed To End!

'The Vampire Diaries' Finale - This Is How It Was Originally Supposed To End!

The Vampire Diaries wrapped up the series into a pretty (bloody) bow this past weekend during the finale.

But that’s not actually how things were supposed to end. Back in season two, executive producers Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson had a different ending in mind.

Instead of – SPOILER ALERT! – Stefan (Paul Wesley) dying, both Salvatore brothers were originally going to die for Elena (Nina Dobrev).

“We had fallen in love with this series and this story about two brothers who loved the same girl and the love triangle was kicking into high gear, we said to ourselves: When all is said and done, when this show is over, both brothers should die in the name of saving their girl and then be watching her like ghosts,” Julie told EW.com. “Because we had introduced the Other Side — as she went off into the sunset to live her life and maybe marry Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig) or maybe become a doctor, but that those brothers would be side-by-side watching her live. That was the thing that made us cry all the tears in season 2.”

That’s right, Elena was going to end up with – Matt! But things changed once Nina left the show at the end of season six.

“I felt like we had to make a commitment to seeing Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena through to the end,” Julie explained. “If Nina had never left, I would’ve loved to have been able to see if Stefan and Elena could’ve found their way back to each other. I don’t know if they could have, but had that departure not been a part of it, the long game would’ve been to see if we could bring the love triangle back around before the series ended and really leave a choice. But her departure sealed the romantic contract between Damon and Elena. In that moment, to me, the show ceased to be about a love triangle and became a show about the power of these brothers and their love for each other. And so there was no way in hell I was killing both of them and leaving neither of them with the happy ending. It just was never going to happen.”

So Stelena may have found their way back to each other…interesting!

Paul Wesley Reveals What He Really Thought of 'The Vampire Diaries' Series Finale

Paul Wesley Reveals What He Really Thought of 'The Vampire Diaries' Series Finale

Was last night’s series finale of The Vampire Diaries the best of the best?

During the finale, we said goodbye to one very important character and stars Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley explains how he truly felt of the ending.

“It’s not the ending that Paul and I always thought we would get — just the two bros in some Speedos on the beach drinking some rum,” Ian joked with EW after the finale aired. “These things are hard to write. You obviously want to pay off an audience for going on a very long journey with you.”

He adds, “The writers themselves want to pay off their own artistic integrity. And so it’s invariably difficult to satisfy everyone, and that’s what I find so interesting about the endings of TV shows that people go on and on and on discussing. You’re never going to satisfy an entire populous of people. The interpretation that you leave is what you leave. This is the end of our show.”
