Would Klaus and Caroline come face-to-face again in the near future? “The Vampire Diaries” fans are still hopeful for a Klaroline reunion so when she mentioned his name in the last episode, it brought out some speculations.

“It’s definitely a hint,” executive producer Julie Plec told TVLine. “This year, as we’ve crossed over, we’ve acknowledged [The Vampire Diaries and The Originals]‘ shared universe.”

She then added “As we know from The Originals, there’s a prophecy predicting the demise of the Mikaelson family, so it was a nice little tease for viewers of that show to ask themselves, ‘Wait, what the hell happened to Klaus?’”

The Vampire Diaries introduced Joseph Morgan as Klaus Mikaelson in Season 2, Episode 17. He was only featured on the show a handful of times, but Klaus was an interesting and memorable character.

The Vampire Diaries and The Originals have crossed over once already this year, and fans have been begging for more in season 8, as reported by Yibada.

Even though “The Originals” is a spin-off from The Vampire Diaries, the two are separate TV shows. Occasionally, there will be a crossover, but fans shouldn’t worry about being left the in the dark.

“It’s a rare luxury to have two shows in a shared universe that you could do that,” Plec continued. “So to not do it feels like we’re missing a really fun creative opportunity, a way to celebrate both shows.”

Klaus and Caroline shared a pretty epic moment during the Vampire Diaries crossover. He promised to protect Stefan and offered his condolences about her mother.

The Klaroline fandom will never stop holding out hope for a Klaus and Caroline endgame, and more crossovers may just hold the fandom over.

However, the executive producer added that there is no rule that crossovers have to happen. But, Plec thinks it is fun to find small, organic ways to connect the shows and characters together.
