I think Klaus's feelings for Caroline are kind of adorable. It makes him a well-rounded villain. He's the quintessential bully-- sad and lonely on the inside and overcompensating on the outside. I think they could be using the Klaroline thing to set up a Klaus existential crisis, where he realizes that he will always be alone unless he lets people in, exactly like Caroline told him. An army of slave minions won't fill that emptiness because their loyalty isn't real, which is why I can see him eventually releasing Tyler from the sire bond. Then again, I'm a helpless sucker for the bad boy who gets saved by love-- hence my obsession with Delena. Anyway, I think they could turn Klaus into an ally. They did it with Katherine, so it's not unreasonable. I just can't imagine them completely writing off such a popular character. As for Klaroline as an actual couple, I'm not sure that's even the point, at least right now. The point is that he has feelings for her, which means that he's capable of having feelings. Again with a Delena comparison-- I could definitely see them becoming friends, which could open the door to them being a couple down the road but not necessarily. I think the show's only options are the above path to redemption for Klaus or to neutralize (kill, entomb, whatever) him early next season.
Unless Caroline start showing sign of affect towards Klaus, I can't really see them being a triangle. But I do like Klaus and Caroline as a couple. So I think things might change between Caroline and Klaus over the next few episode.
Just had to add I so agree with all of this. They lost me season one with Delena. And I do enjoy Klaus and Caroline mainly for their chemistry, but then Klaus is no longer convincing as the big bad he was advertised to be. It is really sad at this point, he lost that edge I used to enjoy about him. Same edge I used to enjoy about Damon, I can barely stand him and his emo feelings anymore.
I love the chemistry between Klaus and Caroline, however I never view Klaus as a bad guy since he had a reason for most of the stuff he has done,and he never had the "Bam" that Elijah have. Klaus didn't come off as villain because he did see to care if his witches live or die. He didn't kill Damon,when he had plenty of chances to,and he didn't kill Alaric. A truly bad guy would have killed Alaric instead of releasing him. He also thanked Elena prior to draining her. LOL! I love Klaus and I hope that he will be redeem by the end of the season,or at least before he dies.
I think that would go back to the Petrovas are pretty much as untouchable as the Salvatore (any death never sticks with these ones): the 'big death' its always narrowed down to the newest character in the cast or the oldest parent/parent figure left in town, no one else ever dies in my experience.
That true, however they claim that it's going to be an shocking death. However those who I think could die in the season finale, are ( you know Nina said more than one person dies in the season finale) Originals:
Klaus ,Rebecca ,Elijah , Kol. I however hope that none of the originals die. I LOVE THE ORIGINALS!! and to be honest I rather Damon and Stefan die than to lose anyone of the originals. Elijah,and Klaus are my favorite. I hope they do not kill off Klaus until they tell us more about him and the first Petrovas women.Human:
Meredith , Alaric , Matt,Jeremy, Liz, and Carol.
-Meredith is not a regular, so they are likely to kill her off.
-Matt is the only one to ever kill an original, so I can see Matt being killed by Esther as revenge for killing Fin , her favorite son.
-Liz and Carol could be killed by Alaric, since he is killing council members, plus if he kills Carol Lockwood that could be part of Tyler's arch.
-Jeremy might die. His death will push Elena to want to turn.
-Alaric might die. I can see Damon killing Alaric . Damon would rather see Alaric dead than to have Alaric spend the rest of his life in the mental ward. Alaric death will also bring Elena and Damon closer together. So Alaric death would serve a purpose. None human/supernatural death:
-Abby will likely die in the season finale. She not a regular,and I think she is evil. I would not be surprise if she did something to Alaric herbs to make them not work,nor would I be surpise if she is Alaric new ally in "Heart of darkness".
-Caroline's death would be a shocker,and will affect everyone, even Klaus depending on how she is killed. Caroline death might be what kick's off Tyler's arch. Death that would totally shock the viewers:
Damon,Stefan ,Bonnie or Elena.
-Like I stated before Elena could die than season..as in die,and become a vampire. I can see her choosing to turn,or her choosing to be with Damon after she is turn.
-Damon's death wouldn't shock people as much because they had him on the brink of death last year. However it would be shocking if he actual died,and turn human.
-Bonnie's death would be welcome. It would be shocking if they kill off the town only residence witch for good. I can see Bonnie dying at the hands of Esther..or better yet Abby. Abby seeking revenge on Bonnie's friends for turning her,and for Jamie's death. Bonnie try to stop her,and Abby kills Bonnie in the process.
-Stefan death would shock everyone. I do not know how the actor feels or not .But he do have a upcoming move. So suppose ( speculating only) Paul doesn't want to do the show anymore? By killing off Stefan that would no doubt end the triangle. However they can always bring in another player to add conflict to Delena.
