The action shifted to New Orleans in this week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries that attempted to set the stage for a potential spin-off surrounding The Originals. Klaus headed to town in order to stop a witch who was plotting against him. While there, he reunited with his former protégé, Marcel, who “rules” the city. But the two clashed when it became clear that the city isn’t big enough for the both of them and Klaus desired the power that Marcel had acquired.
Meanwhile, in a “can’t believe it!” twist, it was announced that Hayley was pregnant with Klaus’ baby. Klaus didn’t seem to care all that much, but Elijah was insistent that this was a new chance for them to be a real family. Eventually, Klaus came around and decided he wanted to be a king…with an heir. While Klaus set his plan in motion, Elijah tried to convince Rebekah to join her siblings in New Orleans, but she refused.
The action shifts back to Mystic Falls next week when Damon and Stefan decide they’re tired of waiting around and “try a brutal new approach to provoke Elena into turning her humanity back on”. Meanwhile, Matt and Rebekah decide to exchange life advice and Katherine becomes suspicious when Bonnie approaches her with an offer that is supposed to benefit them both.
