The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 17 Lead-in: In The Originals We Trust
Tonight, The Vampire Diaries heads to NYC – well at least Damon, Elena and Rebekah do.
The rest of the Mystic Falls crew will have to suffer through the threat of Silas, especially Bonnie. Now that we know the professor is dead, it’s only a matter of time until Bonnie discovers that Silas has been masquerading as the professor since they left the caves.
Oddly enough, The Originals don’t seems as much of a threat anymore. Since Season 2, we’ve always wondered what the future would hold for The Originals. Would the Mystic Falls vamps be able to kill Klaus and rid themselves of hybrid fever? Which sibling would Klaus dagger next? Will Klaus and Caroline ever hook up?
Alas, there is no escaping The Original threat, especially with a Pilot in the works, which will star Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies and Phoebe Tonkin. If the Pilot does well, we may have an explosion of vamp fever this Fall, which wouldn’t be a bad thing if The Originals series maintains the dark atmosphere of TVD.
According to Spoilers Guide, Morgan is excited for the new Pilot, but warns that we shouldn’t expect another vampire love triangle with Phoebe (as Haley). Although Haley and Klaus slept together this season, Morgan says the Pilot goes in entirely different direction from The Vampire Diaries.
Morgan states, “It’s easy to assume that it’ll be a love triangle with Haley and the two brothers, but it’s something so utterly different… That would be a cheap shot to have a carbon copy of The Vampire Diaries, which [the spin-off] really isn’t.”
We’re hopeful that The Originals spin-off does well. Klaus is after all a favorite villain at BuzzFocus. However, we’d still be sad to see him off of TVD. If Silas is Klaus’ replacement, then that immortal has some pretty big, and utterly evil, shoes to fill.
