This week we were introduced to what could be the new series: The Originals. There’s a lot of potential with this show. Klaus is going to be a dad?! I’m not sure what I think about a little Klaus running around. Will the baby be more werewolf because of Hayley? What exactly will an original baby be like?
I have conflicting feelings about this spin-off show. I liked Klaus in this episode more than I usually do. I love Klaus as the villain, he’s a great villain. But in what could be The Originals, he’s more of the good guy. He’s not good, but if you have to choose a side that he’s on, he’s on the good side.
I like what he brings to The Vampire Diaries. I like when he’s driving the residents of Mystic Falls crazy and I like when he’s working with his fellow vampires. It will be a shame to lose his character from the show. I know he can be brought back from time to time. Angel came back to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Addison went back to Grey’s Anatomy, but it’s still sad to lose their characters from the show.
Is Rebekah going to be apart of this new show? She is my favorite original and I don’t want to see her leave the show. She’s so intwined with the other characters of The Vampire Diaries. She has potential relationships with Matt and Stefan, she’s teamed up with Elena and is just over all a good character. I don’t know what would be in New Orleans for her.
Thinking back to Angel and Private Practice, these shows became great shows after characters departed from the original shows. I really enjoyed Private Practice and was sad to see it end a couple of months ago. So The Originals could become a great show and I will never think again about losing the characters from The Vampire Diaries, but at the moment, I don’t know what the future of The Vampire Diaries would be without these characters.
First things first, The Originals has to be picked up by the network.
What did you think of the episode? Leave me a comment.
