Two guest stars of The Vampire Diaries – Joseph Morgan (“Klaus”) and Robert Ri’chard (“Jamie”) have spoken up to tease fans about what to expect from their characters’ futures.
Morgan, talking with The Hollywood Reporter, explained that while the next installment (3×19, “Heart of Darkness”) will include the return of “Tyler” (Michael Trevino) – who he has a sire bond over and who has already won the affection of his love interest “Caroline” (Candice Accola) – “Klaus” won’t be fazed by it.
“He really doesn’t see Tyler as a threat right now. His vanity doesn’t allow him to think why would anybody would want this kind of frat boy instead of him, this worldly man of culture who’s incredibly powerful,” he explained. Though Morgan does admit this is a weakness on his character’s part. This “will be a huge weakness, a huge chink in his armor because he’s underestimating someone who’s going to potentially become his enemy,” he admitted.
Morgan also mentioned the intentions of “Klaus” with regard to “Elena” (Nina Dobrev), whose blood supply is the necessary ingredient for his hybrid formula. “He’s going to make sure he secures Elena’s safety because she’s his source of doppelganger blood. If things start getting too hot, it’s going to be about making his escape intact — and I would imagine he’s going to want Elena and Rebekah with him,” he teased. Uh oh! That’s not going to go over well with her (or the Salvatore brothers).
Meanwhile, Robert Ri’chard teased what’s to come between his character “Jamie” and “Bonnie” (Kat Graham) with Ology. “[A]s time goes on, they’re going to be in more and more scenes together. And in those scenes, there’s that language that suggests there’s a door for them to walk through if they choose. So we’ll see which way it goes,” he said.
He also hinted that his character, like so many others who touch foot in Mystic Falls, might develop feelings for “Elena.”
“Elena’s character, she says to him in one of the scenes, ‘Can you hurt me?’ And he says, ‘I’m not allowed to hurt you, I’m supposed to protect you.’ So whenever you have a man protecting a woman, there’s a possibility for a romance there,” he explained. If that happens, the show might just need a re-name to “Everybody Loves Elena,” am I right?
