Ever since The Originals pilot aired Klaroline fans are out of their minds wondering what will Hayley’s pregnancy mean to the future of their favorite fantasy couple. Julie Plec, the showrunner for both The Vampire Diaries and The Originals made some pretty clear points on where will the baby story take Klaus in the spin off and how will affect his future with Caroline, or the future of their “Second most controversial love triangle” as Klaus “murdered her boyfriend’s mother and sent him running from town like a chicken” Ok, we know Klaus has done some nasty things in the past, but lets be honest – who haven’t done bad things in Mystic Falls (except Matt Donovan of course)?
So, Klaroline fans, you can keep calm as Julie says there is not some grand “Klayley” endgame romance brewing in Louisiana: “The bottom line is that this baby, as we move forward in ‘The Originals,’ is just a power pawn for him, Klaus’s journey will be to live up to Elijah’s hope, which is that this is going to be the thing that can bring their family back together. This is absolutely not Papa Klaus nursing and changing diapers and suddenly being a good guy, nor will it ever be. This is part of a big picture of taking someone who has been terribly villainous and filled with rage, and hurt as a result of being colossally disappointed by his family, repeatedly — this is another layer onto the evolution of trying to bring him some sort of inner peace”
Oh, and we still have the much talked about sweet Klaroline moment in this season finale of The Vampire Diaries: “We haven’t seen the last of Klaus’s affection for Caroline, and we certainly haven’t seen the last of Caroline’s confusion about Klaus. That’ll take us past the finale and into both series, in small and subtle ways, certainly, and then possibly with crossover opportunity moving forward.” Plec assures us!
