SPOILER ALERT: Please do not read any further since this post highlights key events from The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 5: “Monster’s Ball.”
Let’s hear it for the vengeful hybrid! According to Entertainment Weekly‘s Mandi Bierly, Michael Trevino will be the first Vampire Diaries cast member to cross over to the show’s spinoff The Originals.
While fans were excited to see Tyler back in action on TVD during episode 5×05: “Monster’s Ball,” it became very clear by the end of the Halloween festivities that the born and raised Mystic Falls quarterback wasn’t planning on sticking around. Much to poor Caroline’s dismay, her main squeeze had merely dropped by to say goodbye before embarking on the most dangerous mission of his young life: taking down Niklaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) in New Orleans.
We don’t know about you, but we’re still a little depressed with the way Tyler ended his relationship with Caroline. “Be the love of my life. Stay. Love me more than you hate him,” she begged when he revealed that he’s less focused on choosing a major and more focused on driving a stake through Klaus’s cold, dark heart. After all, Klaus turned him into his little minion via hybrid sire bond, meddled in his romantic affairs and, worst of all, drowned his mom, Mayor Carol Lockwood, during Christmastime!
“I think everybody will be happy with Tyler’s reasoning when they see what he’s been up to and what he has planned,” Michael revealed to EW.
While we totally understand Tyler’s Emily-Thorn-sized thirst for revenge, there’s only one itty bitty issue with his master plan: Klaus is virtually unkillable. However, that shouldn’t present too much of a problem because Klaus is a complicated guy who appreciates a challenge.
“Klaus is just so powerful, I figure he doesn’t want to be bored all the time,” Michael points out in the interview. “If he had Tyler hunting him every now and then, a part of him might like that a little bit.”

Are you secretly hoping that Tyler’s relocation to the Big Easy lures Caroline Forbes down there as well (after she comes to terms with their breakup)?
