Klayley, Klaoroline, Klamille shippers – we are very sorry to inform you that Joseph Morgan himself have just killed every little bit of hope you might have had. Apparently, Klaus will have so much on his mind in the upcoming episodes and will be so self-destructive that him having any love interest won’t end very well.
Joseph Morgan talked to TV Line about Klaus’ struggles with his enemies, family and his love life. He has spent the last couple of months not being able to react, not being able to get revenge. Oh, and painting of course. So at the very start of the season there is finally an opportunity to react, there is finally a plan that is productive. But, with all the enemies he has to face – which is the most threatening?
“[His parents are] both threatening in different ways. I couldn’t say because his father was very physically imposing… And his mother is incredibly emotionally manipulative. So they each have their tools that they use to try and get what they want, which, in fact, is where Klaus has learned that. Seeing a little more of the parents and how they to intend to get what they want, we can learn a lot more about Klaus. But I’m not sure which one is the more threatening. It depends which day of the week you catch them on.”
There were numerous reactions by fans after Rebekah’s exit – especially considering the fact that only two members of The Original family were left in New Orleans. Joseph shares the fans’ opinion and he too hoped that there will be more family friends involved in the series. And Rebekah will be back on the show at some point as her presence very important for the brothers’ dynamic. At the point, it seems like only the three of them can trust each other. Will Klaus be gaining any new allies?
“He’s not so good with allies, is he? He doesn’t play well with others. He’s good at temporary allies, like allies for an episode or two and then the old stab-in-the-back or whatever. He works with other people, but there’s no sort of fast ally that he has that’s solid there for him from the beginning to the end. He fluctuates. When it suits him, he allies himself with other people. When it doesn’t, he’s the first one to jump ship.”
There was a lot of buzz about an upcoming crossover from The Vampire Diaries to The Originals and fans were positively surprised to learn that it is going to be Nina Dobrev who will crossover, but as Tatia – the doppelganger who was loved by both Elijah and Klaus. Is there any chance that a new triangle is born including the brothers and Hayley?
“The three of them are like strangers when we find them. They very much feel the absence of Hope since evacuating her with Rebekah. There’s definitely a frustration there for Klaus, being around her, because she reminds him of what he’s lost. These are two people who really shouldn’t be in each other’s lives, but they have to be because they have a child. Because of that, they’re family, whether they like it or not. They have to learn to find some sort of equilibrium. Elijah and Klaus and Hayley work best when they’re on the same team, but it’s just very hard to get them to that place where they all agree on what should be done. It’s a struggle for him and for her to deal with the shared responsibility of this new being.”
Joseph says that a romance between Klaus and Hayley will likely never happen. In fact, Klaus will avoid romance in general in the near future, not even with Cami:
“I don’t think so. I don’t know. I hope not for Cami’s sake because he seems to destroy anyone that has any potential of getting close to him. He sabotages that relationship. They self-destructed in that way. So I don’t know of any love interests for him. But if there are, I’m sure it won’t end very well.”
And of course, there is always the Caroline question – is she on his mind at all, especially after his visit to Mystic Falls last season?
“Not that I know of.”
There you go. He said it. Period.
