Michael Trevino confirms that Tyler will make good on his promise to take down Klaus.
A bridge is finally being built between The Vampire Diaries and The Originals — and it’s being built using Tyler Lock-wood. Michael Trevino has confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that everyone’s favorite former hybrid will be the first TVD character, besides Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) and the Mikaelsons, to pay a visit to the Big Easy.
“Everything will be explained, and I think Tyler will make it good once he shows up to The Originals,” Michael says. “I think everybody will be happy with Tyler’s reasoning [for leaving Caroline] when they see what he’s been up to and what he has planned.”
But don’t expect Michael to share any more about his travel plans just yet! For now, all he’ll say is that Tyler’s trip will happen “sometime soon.”
Will Caroline Follow Tyler To ‘The Originals’?
And what exactly will Tyler do upon arriving in New Orleans? For that answer, I turn to every Vampire Diaries fan’s favorite game: Wild Speculation!
Obviously Tyler wants to make Klaus (Joseph Morgan) pay for murdering Mama Lockwood in cold blood, but since we all know Klaus isn’t going anywhere — The Originals is already running low on Originals as it is — the best possible outcome of his visit is that it will prompt Caroline (Candice Accola) to also cross the great divide.
To say that Caroline and Klaus’ relationship was left unresolved upon Klaus’ exit from The Vampire Diaries would be the understatement of the century. ‘Klaroline’ fans are foaming at the mouth for a little resolution, and rightfully so. Having Caroline follow Tyler to New Orleans, regardless of what happens next, would force her to confront her feelings for Klaus, which are much easier to ignore with all that distance between them.
Personally, I don’t think Caroline and Klaus deserve a happily ever after — he’s simply done too much reprehensible stuff to her loved ones — but that’s just my opinion. Whether Caroline ends things with Klaus for good or decides to stay with him, closure is needed.
HollywoodLifers, how do you feel about Tyler visiting The Originals? What do you hope will come of it?
