TVLINE | How worried should we be about the safety of the Originals?
Very worried, because there are five of us, and they have 12 stakes. They are out to kill an Original. We should be extremely worried. Klaus is certainly taking the threat very seriously, as are the other siblings. And also, let’s not forget, in TV terms, we’re building toward the end of the season. We’re really at a point where no one is safe. So, yes, it’s a very real threat.
And he also talks about the crazy bromance between Stefan and Klaus, and of course, Caroline and Klaus;
TVLINE | I have to admit, I miss the twisted Stefan/Klaus bromance from earlier this season.
Stefan is the biggest thorn in Klaus’ side, because if it comes to it, [Klaus] will kill Damon. … So I really think that there’s a little bit of him that still thinks his friend might be coming back. He’s still not willing to give up on The Ripper. That’s the biggest weakness that he has at the moment. He doesn’t believe who Stefan is now is the real him. He believes the real him was him back in the ’20s, and he still really wants his friend back. He learned so much from Stefan in the ’20s, even though he was a great deal older than him. It’s a bromance I think he misses as well.
TVLINE | Going from bromance to romance, Caroline has been rebuffing Klaus. Will he give up on her?
One thing he’s learned over a thousand years is a bit of patience. If at first you don’t succeed, you’ve got to try, try and try again. There’s no way he’s going to give up on her. She’s the first person to catch his eye in centuries. He really is fascinated by this girl. And he really genuinely believes that he can show her a world that she deserves to have that is her right as a vampire. He wants her to embrace the creature that she has become. He believes he is the person who can help her do that. I think he’s not going to give up. He may have to wait a year or 10 years or a hundred years. But if he’s focused on that, he’ll find a way to get it. He’s not used to taking no for an answer, that’s for sure.
