It’s been quite a week for The Vampire Diaries. Less than 24 hours after The CW drama aired the backdoor pilot for its potential spin-off, The Originals was officially picked up to series. And while I’m positively giddy about getting a double dose of vampire goodness every week next season, a large chunk of the fandom remains unconvinced. Allow me to serve up five reasons why everyone should be thrilled about Klaus’ (Joseph Morgan) future in the Big Easy.
I don’t think we’re in Mystic Falls anymore, Toto! The April 25 episode of The Vampire Diaries — aka the back-door pilot for The Originals, which I’m crossing my fingers for harder than ever — introduced us to the “dark side” of New Orleans, where Klaus’ (Joseph Morgan) former protege Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) rules the roost. You know, when he’s not rocking the karaoke mic. But Klaus and Marcel’s buddy-buddy routine fell to pieces as Klaus became resentful of his former BFF, and vowed to steal back his kingdom.
The April 25 episode of The Vampire Diaries will find Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) temporarily relocating to New Orleans, setting the stage for what will likely become a spin-off series on The CW next season. But before the hour is over, Daniel tells HollywoodLife.com, you’ll see the Mikaelsons come together like never before — just in time for “the beginning of a war.”
Hell hath no fury like Klaus (Joseph Morgan) scorned! In this first-look clip from the April 25 episode of The Vampire Diaries — which also doubles as a backdoor pilot for the show’s proposed spin-off, The Originals — Nicky is seen fuming, as he tries to figure out who’s “conspiring” against him in New Orleans.
Mark your calendars: We’re officially three weeks away from the episode of The Vampire Diaries that also serves as the backdoor pilot for The Originals, the purposed spin-off that follows Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and his siblings to New Orleans’ French Quarter. The CW just released the official description for the episode, revealing information about the new characters we’ll meet down south.
“Klaroline” shippers are being put through the ringer lately! Not only did Klaus (Joseph Morgan) have sex with Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) last week, but in this new clip from the March 21 episode of The Vampire Diaries, the original Original totally butts heads with former flame Caroline (Candice Accola.) And this isn’t the kind of head-butting that leads to love-making. It’s the kind that leads to blood-spilling.
I’m just going to come out and say it: This was a really weird episode of The Vampire Diaries, like, in every sense of the word. Elena (Nina Dobrev) became a cheerleader, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) had sex — more on that later — and to top it all off, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) didn’t call anyone a dick. Things are not what they should be in Mystic Falls. No, not at all.
