Forget Elena, Stefan and Damon. That Vampire Diaries love triangle was so tedious! Season after season of the same nonsense. But Klaus and Caroline, they got my attention! They had chemistry, they had that burning bright spark! There was so much potential for these two. Could Caroline forgive Klaus for all of his evil deeds? Could she save him? We never got the answers because he left for New Orleans (and the new show The Originals). But according to executive productive Julie Plec – Klaroline isn’t over yet.
According to Plec, the sparks between the two characters took her and the rest of The Vampire Diaries writers by surprise. “We knew that we were taking this young, bright-eyed girl and this seasoned vampire and we were going to give them a moment,” she revealed of the Season 3 scene in which Klaus gave Caroline his blood to heal her of the werewolf bite. “And it was something we thought was very interesting for Klaus, who had been so dispassionate about anybody else, to connect with this random person for no apparent reason.”
But the obvious romantic tension between Klaus and Caroline didn’t change the fact that Klaus is all kinds of evil. “We were like, well here’s this character who’s loathsome — absolutely loathsome — and we don’t want to make him not loathsome, he’s the villain,” Plec told fans during the panel. “And so how do you continue to evolve this this connection that these two have that works so powerfully without compromising the villainy of a hideous and hateful and delightful character?”
Plec admitted that it would be tough for Caroline to fall for someone like Klaus… right now. “We knew in these four years that there was no way Caroline could ever… I mean, he murdered the Mayor, her boyfriend’s mother.” But, Plec added, “There is something so magical between them that I would say it is definitely not the end of their journey.”
She said “definitely!” That means we will get more Caroline and Klaus time! That’s probably going to happen in Klaus’ new spin-off series The Originals.
I can’t wait! How about you?
