Following tonight's season four finale of "The Vampire Diaries," Mystic Falls will be short one befanged family: namely, the Originals who've scored their own spin-off series debuting this fall. But that's not to say there may not be a few loose ends as the Mikaelsons move to the Big Easy. Like, for example, the budding relationship between Klaus and Caroline.
When we caught up with stars Joseph Morgan and Daniel Gillies at today's CW Upfront, we asked how (and if) their romantic entanglements will conclude with tonight's episode.
"I don't know what's going to happen," Joseph admitted of his character's relationship with a certain Vampire Barbie. "I know that in 'The Vampire Diaries' finale, we get a little screen time tonight. There's something of a resolve there."
But, according to Joseph, we can't rule out a future Vampire Exchange Program between Mystic Falls and New Orleans.
"As has been stated many times, there's the potential of cross-overs between the shows," he said. "That screen romance really works so well, it was almost to our detriment in trying to create this spin-off, and that's been certainly, I've found, the one kind of bone of contention that people have had with the show. What's going to happen with these two characters? I think [executive producer] Julie [Plec] and the writers are certainly aware of the fans' feelings and respectful of them. I think there will be some acknowledgement and some sort of payoff. Somehow it will be moved on."
As for Klaus' long-suffering brother Elijah, Daniel Gillies told us not to pin too much hope on Katherine waiting in the wings.
"I feel like those wings might have been shredded from their little precipice," he said. "Look, he did sort of say good-bye. I don't know; it was so briefly touched on. Nobody's going to really miss it much. It was like a light snack in the middle of the night. It was delicious, but you don't remember it."
But, much like his amiable Elijah, Daniel is open to whatever the bosses cook up in regards to his love life.
"I welcome anything they throw at me," he added. "Julie is sort of the one that calls the shots on that."
"The Vampire Diaries" season finale airs tonight at 8 p.m. on The CW.
