'Vampire Diaries' Recap: 'The Originals' Spins Off With a Giant Shocker!

Vampire Diaries

The Vampire Diaries is known for its 'epic' episodes, but I went into this episode thinking it was going to be just another spinoff setup. Wow, was I wrong!

I am not a huge fan of The Originals storyline and will most likely not watch this spinoff since my man candy (i.e., Damon and Stefan) aren't front and center. However, tonight's episode definitely piqued my interest, to say the least.

I was wondering what they were going to use as a hook to get Vampire Diaries lovers to tune in to the new show, but I did not in a million years see this coming ...

[Spoiler Alert]


A Klaus Jr.?!!?!?! Seriously, I am picking my jaw up off the floor right now. Hayley is pregnant and Klaus is the Daddy?!!

Not only had I completely forgotten that Klaus and Haley slept together, but I had also forgotten Haley even existed! I mean, with everything else going on in this show ... who was paying attention to the stupid werewolf chick that disappeared episodes ago!

The thought of a family is very heartwarming and sentimental though, and it almost made me sad that Rebekah didn't follow Elijah back to New Orleans. I can't blame her, of course, after everything he's done to her, and I don't think that they can all of a sudden become one big happy family or anything, but a baby always brings a family together, no?

I'm still a little fuzzy on what the witches have in store for Klaus. They didn't really explain what they need him for, and even though I am really interested in seeing how this whole baby storyline is going to play out, I still want to know what the New Orleans witches want.

Also, just when I thought no one could become more obnoxious than Klaus, they go ahead and introduce Marcel, which only solidifies the fact that I will not be watching this spinoff.

Hmmm ... and of course Klaus calls Caroline and is anyone else wondering what Caroline is going to think about all this?

What did you think of The Originals? Do you think Klaus’s baby will end things with Caroline? Would you be into watching this series?
