The Vampire Diaries Scoop: An Original Return!

by at . Comments

Among the many twists and turns on the The Vampire Diaries Season 4 winter finale, viewers watched as April opened Rebekah's tomb.

But this (angry) blonde bombshell won't be the only Original who returns in 2013, as Joseph Morgan teased in an interview with TV Guide: Nathaniel Buzolic will soon reprise the role of Kol.

What will the interactions be like between brothers?

Three Originals

"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."

Earlier this season, in "The Five," fan favorite Daniel Gillies appeared as Elijah, as the series flashed way back to the 15th century.

There are no known plans at the moment to feature that Original again, but it sounds like Klaus will have his hands full with his two other siblings anyway.

Of Rebekah's return, Morgan tells the publication:

"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."

The Vampire Diaries resumes on Thursday, January 17.

honestly I don't care for you later and Damon's relationship. I actually wish they would explore Caroline and Klaus is relationship I really believe that maybe she can change him somehow because he listens to her. and yes I wish they would also bring back in Elija . I really like him he's like the respected brother that everybody likes.


I agree. They should have explored more Elaina and Damon and more Caroline and Klaus. Please dont make Caroline whimpy again


Looking forward to Kol coming back, because he's the only Original to remain true to his character so far. Klaus and Elijah have gone mushy over their respective unrequieted love interests (Elijah's doing a better job at it because Elena actually likes him), and Rebekah could have been an interesting character, but the writers attempts to turn her into a mean girl just make her an unlikeable bully. We don't know anything Kol, he's got no emotional ties to anyone in Mystic Falls but his own family, and his cold,calculated personality is actually refreshingly scary in a town full of overrun emotions.
I finally worked out that's his personality is seen as even more unnerving because Kol looks no more than about twenty to twenty one years old, yet he acts much older than his years, he doesn't throw temper tantrums and seems quite in control of himself.It would be nice to see what he was like as a human. I can see why he's become such a fan favourite.


Elijah is returning in episodes 14 and 15, after Vaughn shows up. ;-)


Damn, shouldn't have gotten my hopes up. Elijah is the only one I care about. And I only care if Klaus is alive because of the bloodline - I don't want our Mystic Falls scooby gang dying too.
And honestly, I don't see the fascination with Kol. Sure, he's attractive, but he's had very little screen time and so far has very little personality. He's only proved himself to be a one-dimensional douchebag thus far - I'll try to care about him if we ever get any backstory or personality from him.


YES THANK YOU smexy Kol is coming back on my screen!! Hell if he's murderous, I'd take him anyways! And he better not die!!!


Caroline isn't an original.get elijah back please!!


Sorry Caroline in season 1 & 2 was awesome. She was full of funny witty comments and it really showed us great character development over the those 2 seasons. You wouldn't have the great character in season 2 if it wasn't for season 1.


I feel kind of dissapointed with the last 2 episodes. The series was on a really good path exploring Delena and Klaroline and all of the sudden was ruined. I feel like the writers dont wanna explore Klaus and Caroline anymore. It feels like they are afraid or insecured about it. And now it´s more impossible for them to develope a relationship or sexual tension because of Klaus actions. Also I don´t like how are they developing Caroline. They´re making her like the Caroline from season 1, and lets face it, she was lame in season 1. Any way I just hope this get better with time.
