Recently, TVGuide sat down with Joseph Morgan (Klaus) and they spoke a bit about Rebekah’s return and who else might be popping up from their current state of dried-out-and-daggered-in-a-coffin!!!
Klaus and Rebekah’s brother Kol is going to be returning!! No doubt un-daggered by (I’m guessing here) a very angry Rebekah, Hell-bent on revenge.
“In the beginning, Klaus and Kol start off more on the same page, but Kol definitely comes in with his own objectives and motives,” Morgan says. “They do end up at odds and issuing threats at each other and it does become quite serious.” Klaus’ relationship with Rebekah, though, is a little more complicated. “Klaus is the one who daggered her and he’s really used her in a way that’s unforgivable. They have both attempted to exploit each other, but are also bound by this love and his feeling of wanting to protect her from her own weaknesses. So it’s all mixed up in there like a big old wasp’s nest of emotions.”
Even though Klaus has always protected Rebekah (from everyone but himself) it will be interesting to see how this dynamic changes given what happened between them last time.
“This is the thing I think that has won people over with the Originals, this bond that goes deeper than any other relationship,” Morgan says. “It’s like when someone can bully their younger brother, but no one else can. I like this idea of Klaus’ that nobody daggers my sister but me. There is that element that if someone kills Rebekah or Elijah — not so much Finn, he wasn’t so keen on Finn — there will be hell to pay. But if he were to do it, that would be OK. “
Can’t wait to see how this all comes together!!
