  1. cinseg1 Said:

    I must say Klaus and Damon taunting each other while Klaus aimed wooden fence stakes and missed hitting Damon- Hilarious! If Klaus wasn’t such an evil villain, it could have been the start of a new bromance! They have good chemistry together and Klaus’s aristocratic poise and accent makes his interactions with Damon all the more hilarious!

  2. Theo Said:

    @cinseg1 That was my favorite scene too — the two of them fighting like some cute little rascals. I also loved Klaus and Stefan’s silent moment towards the end – very powerful!

  3. amckna1135 Said:
