Vampire Diaries Round Table: Who is in the Coffin?

by at . Comments

The Vampire Diaries is taking this week off. But instead of crying (too hard) over that fact, the TV Fanatic staff is using it as an opportunity to stop and analyze the most pressing question currently hanging over the series:

Who, or what, is inside the mysterious fourth coffin?

That's the one question we posted to various writers in this special edition of the The Vampire Diaries Round Table. Read their responses now and then chime in with your own...

Carissa Pavlica: I'll shoot for the Originals' supposedly dead mother.

Christina Tran: The Original Petrova Doppelganger! How epic would that be?!?

Matt Richenthal: Castiel. Producers keep saying he's coming back in some form and... wait, this might be the wrong show.

Steve Marsi: Eric Hochberger's heart. It died when Klaus and Caroline became endgame.

Miranda Wicker: Ooh, I'm going with Mama Original. As much as I want to see Nina Dobrev play another role, I don't think that's happening. And LOL, Steve!

Leigh Raines: Oh crap these are all really good answers. What ever happened to the original witch? Could it be her?

Carla Day: My first two guesses have been mentioned, so I'm going to throw out a long shot: the locked coffin contains Klaus's first love.

Chandel Charles: I think that one of the original Bennett witches has to be in that coffin. It's just a matter of which one and why it's important. Maybe the witch who cast the first vampire spell?

i really want it to be the orignal vampire however i think its way more likly to be hes mother of orignal father. whoever it is it has got to be someone who will add a twist, and probley someone who can kill klaus.


Perhaps klauses twin brother? Man that would be a twist!!


I think it's the original petrova doppelganger coz klaus and rebekah buried the original witch after klaus killed her but still she can be the one inside.Lol@Steve!


Could it be Klaus's real father?


I'd like it to be the Original Petrova but it'll probably be another Original (let's hope they're not all as boring as Rebekah or Klaus, who's actually not that boring this season)


I think it might be Momma oringinal ( klaus' mom ) or a Bennett witch xx


It is the mom, who is actually a Bennett. Bonnie and Klaus are related.


OMG!!! Carla Day, I thought the same thing once he showed so much interest. I also think it might be his mama who can probably be the ONLY one to kill him


I think Klaus and Elijah's mother is in the coffin.


also, I didn't say that the original witch who cast the spell and the Bennett witch were the same person. "I think that one of the original Bennett witches has to be in that coffin. It's just a matter of which one and why it's important. Maybe the witch who cast the first vampire spell?" There were two suggestions made here. Either a Bennett witch OR the witch who cast original spell, i.e. Klaus's mom.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


I wanna say thank you for giving me everything I always wanted. A love to consume me, and passion, and adventure. There's nothing more I could ever want than for it to last forever, but it can't. This is the last time I'm gonna see you. This is goodbye, Damon.

Elena [to Damon]
