The Vampire Diaries & The Originals Nab Containment Stars

at . Comments

Containment may have been one and done for The CW, but two of the stars have obviously made an impression on Julie Plec. 

First up, Kristen Gutoskie has booked a recurring gig on The Vampire Diaries Season 8.

The Originals New Star

Gutoskie will play Seline, who is described as a warm, nurturing nanny of two kids by day, and a small-town girl trying to find her place in a dangerous world by night. 

Seline apparently feels "bonded" to her new family in ways that she could never have imagined and will go out her way to ensure their safety. 

It sounds very ominous, right?

The two young kids part certainly makes us think that she could be the nanny to Caroline and Alaric's daughters. 

It does sound a little obvious, but the show has been pretty predictable for the better part of the last three years. 

Alaric's character was butchered by god awful writing in The Vampire Diaries Season 7, but could a plot with him trying to protect his kids from dark forces make him somewhat likeable again?

Time will tell.

The Vampire Diaries Season 8 is highly likely to be the last hurrah for the show. A lot of the cast are done and want out, but it all seems down to Julie Plec. 

Wouldn't it be better if she just let the show go out with a little bit of dignity and transplant a few of the cast over to The Originals? 

That would make a whole lot of sense!

Meanwhile, Gutoskie's fellow Containment co-star, Christina Moses is heading over to join Klaus and the gang in New Orleans. 

That's if Hayley finds a way to save the original vampires whenever the heck The Originals Season 4 kicks off. 

Having to wait until midseason for sucks!

Moses will play a bisexual werewolf named Keelin. 

Keelin is a smart and resourceful ER doctor who is the last living werewolf in her line. 

After the rest of her family were murdered, she went on the run and avoids getting close to anyone. 

She has no idea that the Mikaelsons will have a bone to pick with her when they inevitably meet. 

What do you think about this casting news?

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.

Damon

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
