crossover for later this season, it’s time to talk details.
“The crossover was born out Stefan needing a place to escape,” executive producer Julie Plec tells TVLine. “He’s on the run. He needs to go somewhere where magic can’t find him, and we realized he can go to New Orleans where there’s that bar where magic doesn’t work.”

Plec planned to leave it at that, a fun episode of The Vampire Diaries with special guest star Klaus Mikaelson — that is, until Joseph Morgan joined the conversation:
, too?’ We said, ‘If we can come up with something good, absolutely,’ and then we realized we have the perfect storyline already happening: the sire line and the war [between] all the trinity, and the prophecy saying that one of these Originals will die or all of them will fall. The fear of that impacts Stefan directly, and so he sticks around for an
episode to participate in the latest dilemma to come out of that situation.”

Klaus hasn’t seen Stefan since the hero-haired Salvatore started dating the supposed love of Klaus’ life, but if you’re hoping to witness an all-out battle for the affections of Caroline Forbes, you’re going to be pretty disappointed.
“Stefan’s now with Caroline, and Klaus, of course, has just gone through everything he’s gone through with Cami,” Plec reminds us. “They actually have a surprisingly civil and honest conversation about love — what it means and the sacrifices that you have to make in the name of it.”

lmao just had the convinient storyline lmao sure try selling it like the cw didnt force it!
YAY thank goodness, I’m happy with Steroline. Love them.
Stefan is really the only TVD character I would want to see crossover because he always had such an interesting relationship with Klaus. I’m pleased with everything I’m reading about this crossover so far.
Is it wrong that I’m dreading this? It feels too late and too shoehorned. Maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised, but not holding my breath.
Happy it’s not gonna be added love interest drama. I’m here for Steroline.
Yaaaay! Love Steroline and Klamille. Can’t wait to see how Stefan and Klaus talk about the love of their lives! Stefan about Caroline and Klaus about Camille :)
Steroline and Klamille is all that matters Yasssss!I’m so excited to see the Klefan dynamic again,they were great!
I’m looking forward to it! Glad it’s not gonna be a romantic type crossover, I’m happy that Stefan and Caroline are together now.
Steroline is my favorite ship so I’m happy the writers aren’t gonna be making it into something else, great news. I can look forward to the crossover now. <3
We waited 2 years for Klaroline…and we will stay here no matter what!#HoweverLongItTakes
oh interesting using klaroline to sell your story andy but i guess you like everyone else in the media knows klaroline is the only thing selling this crossover!
Too little too late in my opinion. Personally I gave up on TO cold turkey after Tyler’s crossover, and Stefan’s presence won’t change it. This is too calculated, & too much has been said & done from the writers- all their lame excuses of “fitting in a crossover”. If they couldn’t think of ideas from the get-go than maybe Plec needs a creative writing class or two.
Can’t wait to see the crossover and for Klefan to talk about Klamille and Steroline!
Supposed love of Klaus’ life? But they never bonded over anything? It was just random sex in the woods? He stabbed her and treated her badly, threatened her, her current boyfriend and her friends and didn’t stop stalking her until she gave in and had sex with him? He promised that he would never come back if she had sex with him? What kind of love of life is that? Hello?
This is great news! Klefan, Klamille, Steroline.
Sad that she squanders the best pairing, for the two subpar ones. Won’t be watching this.
