Share your reactions to tonight’s The Vampire Diaries spinoff episode, titled “The Originals,” which launched the Klaus-centric spinoff!

The Vampire Diaries aired the backdoor pilot to the (hopefully) upcoming new spinoff series The Originals tonight. Did you love it as much as we did?

The Vampire Diaries spinoff saw Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) go to New Orleans where they met Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), Klaus’ former protegé and self-proclaimed king of the city’s supernatural underground.

We also met a number of other new characters, who will be regulars on the new spinoff if it’s picked up by The CW for the fall season.

Next week we’re back in Mystic Falls for the episode “She’s Come Undone.” Check out the promo for the episode:

The synopsis for this episode reads:

LET’S MAKE A DEAL — Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) try a brutal new approach to provoke Elena (Nina Dobrev) into turning her humanity back on, and Caroline (Candice Accola) is frustrated when her attempt to intervene backfires. When Elena figures out a way to call the Salvatore brothers’ bluff, they call for backup from a surprising source. Matt (Zach Roerig) gives Rebekah (Claire Holt) some unsolicited advice on her life choices, and she tries to help him in return. Caroline has a confusing and dangerous encounter with Klaus (Joseph Morgan), and Katherine (Nina Dobrev) is suspicious when Bonnie (Kat Graham) makes her an offer that she promises will benefit them both.

Will you be watching ‘The Originals’ if it’s picked up for a full season?

The Vampire Diaries 4×21 “She’s Come Undone” airs Thursday at 8/7c on The CW.

  • Kate

    Loved it SO much. Loved most of the characters they introduced. Charles Michael Davis is a perfect asshole. It’s definitely nice to get someone else to be the bad guy, so I feel more appropriate cheering for Klaus. Not sure how I feel about Camille, however; I’m just praying she’s not his future love interest.

    Biggest WTF of the show: Klaus is going to be a daddy! It’s easier to accept than vampires procreating, at least.

    And of course, my heart melted with Klaus’ phone call to Caroline.

  • Sarah

    I will definitely be watching The Originals! I forgot all about damon/stefan/elena and was totally engrossed. Even though I love klaroline, this new show needs to happen!

    • DaniMoonstar

      Agree one hundred percent. I’m pro-Klaroline, and I’d rather they continue The Originals and see where they take it than have a crowded Mystic Falls. Unless this just get horrible ratings tonight (which is probably unlikely), I think it’s for sure going to get picked up and be set behind TVD on Thursday nights.

    …..It was going great. UNTIL WE FOUND OUT THAT HAYLEY IS HAVING KLAUS’ CHILD. No. Just no. I know I can’t be the only one who has a HUGE problem with this? I remember a few weeks ago people were making jokes about this very thing on tumblr…IT WASN’T SUPPOSE TO HAPPEN!

    Besides that, the episode was amazing. I loved the new characters. Marcel, Sophie, and Camille were awesome new additions. I’m not going to lie though, even though I know I will watch this show if it gets picked up, my excitement level has drastically dropped. I can’t help it. My Klaroline shipper heart is crying rivers right now.

    • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

      LOL! As soon as the pregnancy thing came about, I couldn’t stop laughing! Then Klaus said ” everyone with a brain knows vampires ca procreate” or something like that, and I almost died. (I think I butchered that quote, but still, hilarious! Couldn’t help thinking about Stephenie Meyer.) So parenthood is going to be Klaus salvation, ha! As for the rest of the pilot, I thought it was pretty solid. I’ll definitely be watching the show, but then again, I always intended to.

      • http://www.facebook.com/martin.coloma Martin Coloma

        As far as I understood it, Hayley needed the help of magic to actually get pregnant (if she really is). I would hope the baby to be only a werewolf, though.

        • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

          The witch (Sophie) can sense when someone is pregnant. The magic involved was only to confirm it.

    • Gary65

      But do you hate it cos you’re a Klaroline shipper or do you hate it cos you don’t like the plot?

  • TVD

    I really don’t know how I feel towards the spinoff.i thought the story line was great but really?haley and klaus!!just no,no,no!
    Anyways,throughout the whole episode i was expecting a stefan/elena/damon scene and it didnt happen so i was disappointed.maybe I’m just being biased because i love TVD and am really starting to like klaroline but I jut still want the originals in TVD.

  • Sarah

    I don’t know how I feel about The Originals pre-pilot. Angel kind of killed the whole vampire-with-a-baby thing, and I’m not really sure The Originals can do it better. The entire episode just felt so random, and I understand it was trying to build the base for a new show, but if I hadn’t watched The Vampire Diaries and only watched this episode, I’m not sure I’d be tuning in to The Originals.

    As it stands, though, I’m putty for Klaus, so yeah, I’ll be watching. As much as he pisses me off, I still somehow root for his character. Just saying, I wanted him to rip Marcell’s smug head off his high-and-mighty body.

  • http://twitter.com/Prixie10 Priscilla

    This ep was so amazingly good! As much as I love Caroline/Klaus I really just love Klaus. Klaus’ relationship with his brother is so much better to watch than Damon and Stefan. I’m tired of them fighting over Elena!

  • http://twitter.com/VBBieber Mallory

    I just want to know what is going to happen to Klaroline now.

    • nina

      Nothing gonna happen, Klaus is crazy about Caroline (the phone call, love it), Caroline is crazy about Tyler… then she’ll realize Tyler is a moron, leave MF, go to New Orleans and hook up with Klaus. Hayley is just a mistake with consequence plus she loves Tyler so they can just exchange partners (lol).

      • Weasley

        I laughed so hard reading this . That has to happen , Klaus and Caroline have to get together . But the sad thing is that blond hair girl who was taking to Klaus about the painting . I think they will have a relationship eventually.

        • http://twitter.com/VBBieber Mallory

          That’s what I thought. Painters…

  • Melissa

    The Haley/Klaus baby really threw me for a loop. I was saying “What?!?” so many times my mom had to tell me to shut it. But in an effort to be open minded, I’m gonna roll with it and just see what happens. Its definitely interesting and I wasn’t expecting it at all. Its been a long time since Julie Plec & Co. have surprised me so that’s a plus. I hope it gets picked up!!

  • Nina

    The episode was great. Hope Rebekah joins board soon enough (MF is sooo not her scene). Not really sure about the Baby thing though. we’ll see. All the actors seemed great. I am officially in love with Jo Morgan. He’s so angry, confused, so many emotions it’s awesome, Daniel Gillis was great as always. Hope Nina Dobrev as Katherine will join for some episode. I was worried for Klaroline but the phone call Klaus made at the end was great: he’s soooo in love with her! It’s nice to see the Originals with emotions, hope and love…

  • Nina

    Btw, it’s great to see that Klaus is not the only villain, it’s gonna be villain against villain on the Originals, so great, I’m thinking of dropping TVD for it if Caroline doesn’t stay. One more thing, I just love Marcel, he’s such a mini-Klaus, it’s cute, not to mention his ass is great!

  • Alaina

    I will definitely be watching. I was sure I was going to at least try and watch but now I’m getting excited for it. I loved the Original family dynamics and I can’t wait for more Claire Holt. And Daniel Gillies, Always. I could get used to that whole case on my screen every week. I don’t know how I feel about tey take the big baby bombshell but I could go wother way. It depends how they take it. I like seeing the new vulnerable and somewhat sensitive Klaus but I missed the classic big bad the rolled into Mystic Falls two seasons ago. My other favorite moments were the Caroline message, Katherine actually showing sings of a real person and the brothers confrinting Elena in the Salvatore celler. Next week looks epic… As always.

    • Alaina

      Whoa, sorry I can’t spell. I blame it on my “heightened emotions” after that episode.

    I loved The Originals pilot more than I thought I would, I must be one of the few people
    that is actually happy that Hayley is having Klaus’ baby. Sure I’ve seen that
    storyline before on Angel & Twilight but I have confidence that the TVD crew
    can make it “Original” no pun intended lol! I can’t wait to see how Rebekah
    handles the baby situation; will she be the Rosalie to Hayley’s Bella?

    Also what is up with all the Disney references on TVD? Last week we had the Beauty & the Beast “step into the light” moment with Bonnie & Sillas, this week I was
    expecting Klaus to start singing that song from the lion king that samba sings “Oh
    I just can’t wait to be kingggggggg”

  • Sofia

    This Klaus-Hayley baby mama drama needs to end RIGHT now. I can’t even believe they took it there!!! I was rooting for this pilot all the way… until that little “surprise.” Now I can’t even get my mind past it! What were they thinking?? How in the HELL is Klaroline supposed to happen now?! Can you IMAGINE Caroline’s reaction? Good lord. Just when things were getting soooooo good.

    I really loved all of the other actors though- they did a great job and fleshed out their characters well. This baby business has me too distracted. I don’t know if I can bring myself to watch. Eeeeeeeek

    • Sofia

      I’m going to find my solace in fanfics. Lots and lots of fanfics.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=17127641 Laura Jurgensmeyer

    I was really excited about this, but… not so much anymore. I have never liked Hayley. I thought maybe in a different settings with different characters I might (and still could), but then they threw in the baby thing. Ugh. And I don’t want Klaus, Elijah, and Rebecca to leave Mystic Falls. They’re become part of it and I don’t know if I can go back to them not being there. We’ll see, I guess! As long as they give me lots of Delena on TVD, I’ll be good.

  • Jamie

    Marcel was great, Klaus even better, and Elijah the best! I totally thought he was going to kill Katherine.

  • IngloriousJaen

    LOL WTF?!!! That baby plot line was straight out of a eleven year old’s fanfiction. No just NO!
    And this really sucks because, everything else was great. Klaus wanting to start again and be the king and have everything that he ever missed out on ços of his father, that made sense! It would have been enough of an anchor to hold him to New Orleans. There was absolutely no need for a baby! And what makes it even worst is that I feel like they have this plot line just cos they want to have Phoebe Tonkin in the show. The other characters, Klaus and his relationship with Elijah was great but the baby this thing was too stupid that is spoiled it for me really.

  • Inez R

    I love the Haley storyline.i think its going to be the thing that redeems Klaus.i know a lot of people want klaus to be with caroline but he needs redemption.they can’t get into relationship and be 2 steps forward and 1 step back.Despite all the bloodshed i think the originals is about the growrth between the originals.its not just klaus.I think we will see them be a family agin and mabey then Katherine and elijah can be together and we’ll see klaus be the kind of person caroline know he can be.And sooner or Later we’ll get to see rebecka display her compassion openly.

  • klaroline

    i am out. totaly klarolinefan since last february. so this storyline ist bullshit. don´t watsch it anymore.

    • Gary65

      That’s stupid. By that reasoning, you shouldn’t watch TVD either cos you weren’t going to get Klaroline, whether Klaus left or not.

  • Nena

    This episode was so pathetic, i mean what else to come.Dont know what the writer is thinking but if they dont stop the bs they will loose so many fans.So disapointed.

  • ana

    i really liked the show but hoped the bad klaus would rip out marcel and his daywalkers. its quite intressting spin off but let klaus fight for the power

  • RH

    I actually think the baby thing is a great idea, I just wish that Haley wasn’t the mother. I don’t know why, but I’ve never really cared for her character. I guess I can deal with it as long as the show doesn’t try to make Klaus and Haley a couple as they bond over their child. Other than the baby surprise, I thought the episode was amazing.

  • LALaLand

    Am I the only one who saw a lot of similairities (relationship-wise) with the Buffy spin-off, Angel?

    *Klaus is going to leave the small town where the main show is set to go to a big city, just like how Angel left Sunnydale for LA.

    *Klaus is probably going to leave his love interest, Caroline, in the main show just like how Angel left Buffy.

    *Klaus had a one-night stand and now she’s pregnant, just like Angel and Darla.

    *Klaus is probably going to fall in love with another woman, Camille, just like how Angel fell in love with Cordelia in the spin-off.

    Don’t get this the wrong way, I’m still really exicted for this show. I just noticed these things, since I’m a big Buffy/Angel fan.

    • http://hypable.com Selina

      Oh yeah. You can expect me to talk about this AT LENGTH on the Vampire Hype podcast.

  • Gary65

    I really hope this show happens. The 2 shows need to be separate. For once, I was really interested in the MF plot. I loved all the Klaus stuff but it was always needling me that I wanted to see what was happening with Stedelena. Normally, I’d be bored but they’ve reached a really interesting juncture and I’m so looking forward to next week. A big thumbs up on all fronts.

    Don’t really know why people are so bothered that Klaus has a baby now. Do you take issue with the whole idea of the pregnancy or is it the fact that it’s with Hayley? It’s not like this is the first vamp show to have a baby story. And it’s not like he’s shacking up with Hayley or anything. People have babies and don’t become a couple all the time.

  • Madeleine

    Just because Hayley is having Klaus’ baby doesn’t mean Klaroline won’t happen so I wish people would stop freaking out, if anything it may make it more interesting with Caroline’s reaction to the whole situation

  • Steph

    The baby thing is sort of…random, but I will admit it makes more sense to me than when it happened in Breaking Dawn. I mean, Klaus is a hybrid so he isn’t fully vampire or fully werewolf so I suppose it is logical that he could get a non-vampire pregnant, since full vampires cannot procreate but werewolves still can. So with that being said, the pregnancy won’t turn me off because it at least makes some sense.

  • Meeko

    Was a bit WTF with the baby thing cuz first thought was “No way can the dead reproduce”! But then the writers can take this in any direction they want, who knows miscarriage or baby esp and knows daddy don’t like it… Anyhow love the new characters and will diffinatly watch. Would be nice if they run it over the summer while VD are on a break. Great characters and having the original family as the main cast shall be interesting especially since we all love watching them on VD!

  • Meeko

    Add on… The writers aren’t stupid they know that we are all rooting for klaus and Charoline and that Haley and Klause just make for an interesting twist.

  • http://twitter.com/NatashaPeartree Natasha Pereira

    loved the whole ‘king’ theme in the french quarter, kind of a nod to french monarchy. i know a lot of hate is going around about the baby situation, but i dont mind it so much. it makes sense that the warewolf part in him would be able to procreate. i guess well just have to wait and see. it was definitely a surprising twist.

  • The Dark Lord

    I liked the Orignals pilot but I have some concerns. The whole Klaus thing is similar to Angel/Twilight but different because he is creating a werewolf. What will Caroline think about this new side of Klaus. How will Rebekah handle becoming and aunt for the baby? I think that if Rebakah does join the show like she is supposed to be she could hook up with Marcel as a way to stick it to Klaus. But I can’t believe Klaus, Elijah, and Rebekah will just pack up and leave Caroline, Katherine and Matt, something else has to happen.

    • Inez R

      I think that something is Silas.I can see Matt Dying this season to push rebekah to the originals

  • Imo

    WTF why did they make Hayley pregnant???!! IT was a completely retarded thing to do and will probably have alienated a large percentage of possible viewers for this show! Not just the fact that they chose to do it at all – but in the pilot?? And Klaus of all people! Klaus who shouldn’t be tied down by anything or anyone although he maybe would be for his brother nd sister but that’s different!! Klaus should not be a father!! They have most likely just put in this ABSURD plot line to keep phoebe tonkin and give her a reason – although nothing will change the fact that she is the most pointless and annoying character and the acting is very wooden. This is such a stupid twilight thing to happen – there shouldn’t be kids in this type of program.

  • http://twitter.com/Shaftsword Shaft Almasy

    I hated it I would rate it as so much worse than the Vampire Diaries pilot. The problem I have with it even before the plot aneurysm that is the baby is how against type we see Klaus as he interacts with people around New Orleans. The plot even after that doesn’t make sense why do they need Klaus to take out Marcel when anyone could do it, he doesn’t strike me as the sort of person who shares and who might leave a successor. It just doesn’t make sense which is a phrase I kept repeating to myself as I watched the pilot. Unfortunately this season of The Vampire Diaries has been a huge disappointment and the rot it seems has spread to the pilot.

  • Emma

    No No No. I don’t want Hayley to pregnant with Klaus’s kid. That just ruins the whole Klaroline relationship. It was going soo well, and now this is just going to send the whole Klaroline thing downhill :( C’mon, TVD writers! You need to give us a great Klaroline moment before the season ends because Klaus is going off to New Orleans, and Caroline will still be in Mystic Falls. I am not so sure about The Originals now, I don’t want to ship Klaus and Hayley, just no.

    • Inez R

      I don’t think the baby thing is the end of klaus and caroline.its a chance for Klaus to grow into the person caroline sees he can be.She sees redemption but hes not there yet.For a second he was ok with his unborn child dying.So i could see Caroline being a step mom.this storyline dosen’t kill Klaroline

  • psychologista

    Anyone else a little worried about the racial undertones to this episode. Something about Klaus putting Marcel in “his place” rubbed me the wrong way

    Klaus: “Thats funny becasue when I left 100 yrs ago you were still a pathetic little scrapper still trembling grom the lashes of the whips that would keep you down and now look at you “master of your domain”… “prince of the city”.”

    So in 1913 he was a “pathetic little scrapper trembling form the lashes of the whip”? Ok, sounds historically accurate to me but I’d say JP better tread carefully before making her leading dude disparage someone for being a former slave. Low blow…even for Klaus.

    Yes, Marcel did stand up for himself but something about the prospect of watching seasons of the white originals “take back” New Orleans from the “big bad/dark” Marcel who has been the rightful leader of the vamps in the areas for 100 yrs seems hmmmm. Any other thoughts on this? I’d LOVE to be convinced otherwise because I really enjoyed last night’s epi other than that.

  • Bella

    I wish some people would chill – the Klaus spawn has nothing to do with Caroline and Klaus except maybe to make Caroline jealous a reaction that will surprise even her. People need to calm down and wait and further that phone call at the very end was done for a very specific reason – I think its time to wait and see

  • WhatTheGrace

    First things first i LOVEEEEEEEE Marcel!!! He’s so fresh and brings new light to the show! I think Klaus has finally met his match! It’s good to have a character who actually challenges him and poses a genuine threat to his ‘power’.

    Secondly, i was genuinely shocked by the whole Klaus/Haley baby story-line. That took me by surprise! I’m not disappointed in it at all, i’m actually looking forward to finding out where this plot is going to go! (Tbh i don’t think the baby is going to survive – hope it does because i want to see happy, cute Klaus; but we’ll see about that).

    As for the whole witch thing, for some reason, i feel if Bonnie was to go to New Orleans (with all her new crazy powers) she could take down Marcel pretty easily, even with the whole ‘i can tell when witches are using magic’ sense that Marcel has.

    I do have to add, i think i’m really going to miss the preciousness that was Caroline and Klaus!! I like the Camille lady but i like Caroline more.

    - It’s really weird how much i like Klaus now, i used to hate his guts and couldn’t wait for his demise but he’s grown on me.

    Lastly let’s just take a moment to appreciate the PERFECT and the AMAZINGLY HOT Elijah Mikaelson!!! Team Elijah all the way : ))

    Really good ‘pilot’ episode overall. I enjoyed it!

  • WhatTheGrace

    Also i really, really love the relationship between Klaus and Elijah, it’s so much more intriguing and just so refreshing. Although i love Stefan and Damon, It’s so good to see a pair of brothers having conversations about things with more meaning, other than the whole ‘who saves the girl’ who gets the girl’ plot that we’ve been following for almost 4 seasons.

    I’m looking forward to seeing their relationship flesh out some more if they continue the spin-off.

  • Sarah

    I actually love the episode, except for the baby part and the fact that Kalijah is separating. But everything else is exciting and interesting. Marcel is an awesome character, and it makes sense that Klaus want to be the king, since he has always wanted people to be loyal to him…

  • Christina

    All i have to say is that the writers of this show really set NO rules for themselves huh? ahhaha

  • Brianna

    I am a huge klaroline fan but if the spinoff gets picked up what going t happen to klaoline? but it was a great plot if the originals do get picked up for a full season I am going to watch it i just hope that Caroline will appear in a few episodes :)

  • IMA

    Love the originals, probably my favourite characters, but didn’t like the plot! Camille seemed nice, but nothing more, Marcel kinda annoyed me and Sophie is promising!!! But it just didn’t convince me!!! I mean how many seasons could it last?! Hayley and Klaus sharing a bond was more than enough by the one night stand…….

    Sure I’ll watch it, how could I not, I love Klaus, and Elijah…….but I believe I’d like them better at Mystic Falls!!!!!!!! (and not only ’cause Klaroline scenes are just amazing)

  • 7Starrchasers

    Honestly I found the episode a little boring…I wasn’t convinced that THIS was the reason they were leaving mystic falls…meh

  • penny

    Please DO NOT pick up this steaming pile! That was bloody awful! What a terribly written pilot! Although I am sick of the evil Elena storyline, this was just ridiculous. Klaus needs to bite Marcel and go back to Mystic Falls posthaste!

  • Kristen

    I Will be watching ‘The Originals’ :D

  • Jessica

    If she really is having a baby i cant wait. the bad thing is that 9 months on vampire diaries is like 2 years D’:

  • Jake

    Before anyone writes of The Originals, let’s all travel back four years to the pilot of The Vampire Diaries. I know for a fact that most people thought it was TERRIBLE, and now look at the show. Give it a chance.

    Anyway, I liked it. It was a little hard for me to get the faces straight, but other than that, I thought it was decent. I liked the painting scene.
