The Originals' Klaus is much more than Klaroline and the ladies in his life
I think that by this point, you guys know I'm a total Klaroline shipper.
That crossover phone call between the two of them on The Vampire Diaries gave me so many feels!
But I also don't blame Joseph Morgan if he's a little tired of all the Klaroline questions. After all, the dude recently directed his first episode of The Originals. And through all the questions about his fabulous directorial debut, I, admittedly, still just want the dirt on if Klaus will ever settle down.
Of course, Morgan was more than happy to chat about it. But he had a unique take on Klaus' relationships during his new interview with TV Line.
"I suppose everybody has a slightly different take on it, from the fans to the writers to the actors," Morgan explained. "But my take on it is this: There’s not one woman that Klaus is like, 'That’s who I love! It’s definitely her above everyone else!'"
I'm definitely thinking about that The Vampire Diaries episode here where Klaus told Caroline that she's his end game. But it's also fair for Morgan to say that Klaus just isn't there yet.
I tend to agree. He's not (which is why the tension is so fabulous, let's be real!).
"He’s a tortured soul, and that’s why he doesn’t have a relationship that works with any of them," Morgan added. "If you really think about it, we haven’t seen him have a single relationship that lasts in the whole course of him being on both [The Originals and The Vampire Diaries]. I think that speaks volumes."
Morgan is absolutely spot-on here. I think it's fair to ask fans to be a little more open-minded to the turns Klaus' future may take.
I know I'm all about seeing a Caroline/Klaus reunion. But it's important to check myself every once in a while and realize that Klaus is much more complex a character than simply his love life. He is raising his daughter, protecting his family and navigating the politics of New Orleans. In the scope of all that, no wonder his love life takes a backseat.
The Originals is all new tonight at 9/8c on The CW.
