The Originals: No More Heartbreaks Recap and Review – The Light Shines in the Darkness

Klaus and Cami in No More Heartbreaks

NO MORE HEARTBREAKS RECAP AND REVIEW

Perhaps “No More Heartbreaks” should have been called “No More Surprises.” Everything went down exactly as predicted which is more than a little disappointing. Cami’s life was hanging in the balance. But was she able to make it out of the episode alive? Well, not only did Cami die but Davina did as well – most likely temporarily on Davina’s part but the imagery of two main female characters biting the dust in one episode was disheartening and frankly quite frustrating.

Sorry writers, the episode was wonderfully written (despite its predictability), acted (major props to Leah Pipes and the rest of the cast), and the romance between Klaus and Cami will go down in the books for that beautiful ending, but I simply am not happy that Cami was written off the series. Yep, it’s as simple as that. But hey, I’m someone who believed Titanic had a happy ending. So here’s to hoping Klaus and Camille will at the least be reunited on the other side at the end of the series. I say let’s give them a Wuthering Heights end.

That said, I want to have a conversation with TV writers, in general, to tell them that I just want a break from all the killing. There’s too much death on television right now and an almost complete lack of happy endings. As if the more death there is the more seriously people will take them. The more “artistic” their writing will be seen. I take the other view. I think killing off characters has become incredibly predictable and redundant. And I’m finding it more than a little tiresome. I love tragedy as much as the next person. But the sheer level of tragedy has me hoping for a little more light and a little less darkness. In other words, more Camille on my TV screen. I’m sad to see the “light” leave The Originals.

So, let’s take a look at “No More Heartbreaks” and what went down.

THE LIGHT SHINES IN THE DARKNESS

The Originals No more heartbreaks

In the beginning of “No More Heartbreaks,” Cami wakes to find herself bitten by Lucien’s poisonous bite. Thankfully, she’s able to escape. Without wasting any time, Cami breaks free from Lucien using one of her dark weapons. She runs straight to Klaus where she confesses her true feelings to him. She loves him and wanted to tell him before she died. Klaus catches Cami who begins to collapse from weakness and carries her away in hopes of finding a way to save her. He decides to hold off his declaration of love for the time being.

Meanwhile, Vincent returns to Cami’s apartment and uses magic (though he has trouble since the ancestors are working against him) to collect Lucien’s blood. They believe it might be a way to cure Cami. Unfortunately, the blood doesn’t work.

Back at the Compound, Cami decides it’s time for Klaus to write her will. After all, he owes her after she transcribed his entire memoir. But before she can reveal what she wants to leave Klaus in her will, he explodes in a moment of rage. He’s unable to face losing her.

After trying one of the attempted cures, Klaus brings Cami into a dream world where they share a perfect date at a corner café. She cheekily flirts with Klaus who continues to hold back his own feelings for her.

Elsewhere, Hayley and Elijah – in another attempt to save Cami – go to the Bayou to pick up Hope. They believe the miracle baby might have a miracle cure in her blood. But it’s another failed attempt as her blood doesn’t work either.

Back in Cami’s dream with Klaus, they walk down the dream version of New Orleans hand in hand – even reliving their first moment together. Cami again attempts to get Klaus to face the truth – but he still can’t face losing her. She wants him to know that he’s loved. She doesn’t want him to forget what she’s taught him and to hold onto the light so he can be a light to his own daughter, Hope.

Klaus sees Cami dying; No More Heartbreaks

With a hope for a cure gone, Cami’s heart begins to fade. Before the end, Klaus reveals his true feelings. He admits to loving her. And that out of his long life and the many people who have been forgotten, he will carry her with him. In that way, Cami realizes she will be immortal.

Klaus cries; No More Heartbreaks Klaus and cami dying; No More Heartbreaks

Klaus holds onto Cami in her final moments as she quietly slips away to the other side. Cami was truly “good,” the only character to remain so after being turned into a vampire. The darkness could not overcome her. And perhaps that was her greatest triumph.

How beautiful that Cami’s final moments referred to a Biblical passage about the light overcoming the darkness? That was so Bronte like to use a Biblical reference as a way to reveal emotion. Unfortunately, much like Lucy in Villette (Charlotte Bronte’s lesser known novel), Cami and Klaus are only able to have a moment of happiness where they realize they were each loved. But at least they had that moment.

Once Cami dies, it should be noted that Klaus does not utter one more word for the rest of the episode. He becomes silent – clearly too heartbroken to even cry out.

FOR NEVER WAS A STORY OF MORE WOE…

The Originals Davina and Lucien; No More Heartbreaks

Elsewhere in “No More Heartbreaks,” Davina discovers Kol is still in town and he’s been hiding from her. She tells him to stop keeping her out of his life and then reveals she’s going to go see Lucien to find a way to save Cami.

From there, she pays Lucien a visit to get to the truth – both about Kol and the cure. Unfortunately for Davina, her magic no longer works on Lucien with the ancestors on his side. Lucien breaks through her spells and reveals the truth – there is no cure for Camille. His bite is lethal with no loopholes. Lucien then lets Davina go because she’s not his to kill. He reveals the ancestors have something else in mind for her.

Davina returns to Kol where she confronts him about the truth he’s been hiding from her. Part of the spell that brought him back cursed him to want to kill Davina, the love of his life. And it will only get worse until he does. So Kol has Davina temporarily stake him until she can find a way to undo the curse on him.

Kol and Davina; No More Heartbreaks

In the end, the ancestors win. They release Kol from the magic of the stake. He awakens in a fit of madness and drains Davina until she’s dead.

STANDOUT ROMANTIC MOMENT AND FAVORITE QUOTES

This week the standout romantic moment(s) and favorite quotes are one and the same. They relate to the “I love you” declarations from Klaus and Cami in her final day alive. First from Camille in the beginning and the second from Klaus at the end.

I LOVE YOU #1

Cami I love you; No More Heartbreaks

Cami: I love you and I won’t let you get yourself killed.

[Cami nearly faints from weakness.]

Klaus catches Cami; No More Heartbreaks

Klaus: Camille! [said as he catches her.]

I just needed you to know; No More Heartbreaks

Cami: I just needed you to know.

love you tomorrow klaus; No More Heartbreaks

Klaus: I can tell you I love you tomorrow. You’re not dying today.

klaus carries Cami; No More Heartbreaks

I LOVE YOU #2

how you know you love someone; No More Heartbreaks

Cami: It’s funny. Even though we’re so different, I feel like I’ve always known you. Maybe it’s because I’ve been in your mind. Or maybe that’s just how you know you love someone.

Klaus: I do love you, you know.

I do love you; No More Heartbreaks

Cami: I thought you were gonna tell me that tomorrow. I really don’t have another tomorrow, do I?

Klaus and Cami dying; No More Heartbreaks

[Cami breaks down in a moment of fear, afraid to die as she faces her own failures.]

Klaus: Don’t you think for a moment that you failed me. You stayed my hand. You quelled my rage. You inspired goodness in me. And unlike ALL of the souls I’ve encountered and forgotten in the long march of time…I will carry you with me.

I will carry you with me; No More Heartbreaks

Cami: I guess that makes me immortal.

I guess that makes me immortal; No More Heartbreaks

The rest of the scene plays out beautifully as Klaus and Cami say their final goodbyes.

Writer, Michael Narducci went on to explain these I love you moments in depth in an interview on EW which I believe supports why these two were kindred spirits:

“We have always known there’s an incredible connection between these two people. I know there’s a lot of different fandoms who want Klaus to be with Cami or Hayley or someone who’s on another television show, Caroline. There’s people that like Klaus with Aurora. There’s people that want Klaus to be on his own. I think the truth of the matter is, when you’ve lived 1,000 years, you’re probably going to have a lot of loves. For Klaus on this show, the relationship that changed him, the relationship that gave him pause, the relationship that made him sense a kindred when he really needed a kindred [was with Cami]. Cami was someone who could look at Klaus and say, “I understand what you are and I think secretly it’s built on anger and frustration and deep, deep despair and I think you can be better.” That really changed Klaus. Of course she was beautiful and of course he couldn’t help but fall in love with her for that reason, but there was also a kinship. She knew that her power as a psychologist was she might be able to have influence on the most dangerous vampire in history and get him to stop being a savage monster, and she felt an obligation to try and lead him out of his own darkness. Whether or not she did that remains to be seen, but she certainly tried all the way through to the end of her life.”

THEORIES, THOUGHTS AND QUESTIONS – HOW CAMI “SHOULD” RETURN

The Originals Cami; No More Heartbreaks

I have quite the mixed emotions about the events of this episode. While I appreciated the epic kindred spirit love story shown between Klaus and Cami (you rock Narducci for making sure to point that out both in the series and in the interview!) – I just am not particularly happy they went the obvious route and let her die. I’d say they could still easily find a way to bring her back in a surprising way but the interviews going around seem to confirm that Leah Pipes as Camille has permanently left the series. Yep, another LEAD female character this season has been killed which is…you guessed it…not surprising. I don’t know what annoys me more – that Cami died OR that the bullies who hate her are already celebrating.

Has TV Become Too Predictable?

Since it’s so rare when it happens, I LOVE to be surprised. I even get a little bit of an adrenaline rush when I’m surprised by a TV Show (I admit to typically hating surprises with just about everything else in life). So, sadly everything happening as I previously predicted is a let-down. But that’s on me! I can’t blame the writers for my own unfair high expectations. Even if predictable, the writing and acting was fantastic. Not to mention that it follows familiar archetypal tropes. Plus, the writers remained true to both Cami and Klaus as characters which can also be rare on TV Shows these days. So do I have a right to complain?

I hate to say it. But I might love the show a little less. I might look forward to the series a little less. It can’t be helped. I just hope the series continues in a way that will remain true to the characters and the story moving forward. And that it doesn’t go down a path of throwing “ships” together that don’t organically make sense. If The Vampire Diaries is any indication, this fear is a valid one. I don’t look at stories from the lens of a shipper. I look at it through the lens of a storyteller. I root for story (which can definitely include a romance) above all.

The Romantic Love Story

klaus and cami she's dying; No More Heartbreaks

On another note, I want to point out that I appreciate the writers’ choice to keep the Klaus and Cami relationship wholesome till the end. Their love was always about a romantic soul connection which made it stronger than most other TV relationships. That emotional connection steeped in Romanticism like that of Jane and Rochester. A “twin” bond that even death can’t break. It’s what Cami referred to when she felt like she always knew him. Or when he mentioned last season that he would have found her. It’s why she will remain “immortal” to him in his mind. It’s my favorite kind of love story and I’ve enjoyed their story from the beginning and will continue to enjoy it (from Klaus’s perspective) till the end of the series.

Could Cami still return?

Is there a way to bring Cami back? I believe so, yes. But unless the writers plan to use Cami in a flashback or they plan to bring her back for the ending, it seems unlikely for a big Cami return. Though I would love to be proven wrong. (Remember what I said earlier about the adrenaline rush?)

So looking beyond what the writers “will” likely do (again this comes down to predictability), what “could” they do?

From Julie Plec’s words over on EW, she had this to say about Cami’s exit:

“The responsibility of the storyteller is to recognize when a character has run its course.”

While I respect that she feels this way and I understand it’s the writers’ story to tell, I respectfully disagree. There could be an entire season arc about Cami’s family history for one. Think back to episode two of this season when Cami was having interactions with Detective Kinney. There was a whole possible story with Cami and Will that was left completely unexplored. What did he discover about her family? Why was he there to protect her? Could there be more to him than meets the eye? Is there more to the O’Connell family legacy than even Cami realizes? There is a well of stories one could create and connect to her as well as the Mikaelsons. Not to mention the writers could easily come up with ideas from popular folklore of New Orleans. There’s even a book about just that.

But since Cami died as a vampire, how could she return?

For one, she could transform into an angelic figure or something new altogether connected to the O’Connell bloodline. Or she could be a ghost. We’ve seen ghosts in this “universe” before. It would make sense for Cami to haunt Klaus.

When in doubt, return to the source material! SPOILERS

dark reunion the vampire diaries

The most compelling idea can be taken from the books that started it all – especially since this particular story from the series is connected to Klaus: The Vampire Diaries: Dark Reunion by L.J. Smith.

One story from the books has Elena die a seemingly permanent death. A lot of time passes. Six months I believe. The ghosts of the town – including Elena – are able to return for one night to help defeat Klaus (a COMPLETELY different character in the books). After later defeating Klaus, Stefan and Elena are once again ripped apart when she’s pulled back into the dimension from where she came. Her time was up. Stefan is left devastated. How can he lose her all over again?

Bonnie watches the whole thing unfold.

Stefan cries out Elena’s name in a moment of pure anguish. It’s this cry, this kindred spirit love connection that brings Elena back to life. I’ll include a few excerpts (mixed with some summaries) that lead to Elena’s return so you can see what I mean:

He was standing, chest heaving, looking at the last place where Elena’s brightness had been seen. And all the longing and the pain Bonnie had glimpsed on his face at times before was nothing to what she saw now.

[Bonnie points out how “it isn’t fair” and cries out to the sky.]

…Bonnie saw the spasm go through him, like the agony of Klaus’s stake. And the cry that burst out of him was the most terrible thing she’d ever heard.

“Elena!”

…[Bonnie] heard Stefan’s cry that almost seemed to shake the earth beneath her. She saw Damon start toward him. And then she saw the flash…This one was gold.

And so bright Bonnie felt that the sun had exploded in front of her eyes. All she could make out for several seconds were whirling colors. And then she saw something in the middle of the clearing, near the chimney stack. Something white, shaped like the ghosts, only more solid looking. Something small and huddled that had to be anything but what her eyes were telling her it looked like. Because it looked like a slender naked girl trembling on the forest floor. A girl with golden hair.

It looked like Elena.

Not the glowing, candle-lit Elena of the spirit world and not the pale, inhumanly beautiful girl who had been Elena the vampire. This was an Elena whose creamy skin was blotching pink and showing gooseflesh under the spatter of the rain.

[Basically, a human Elena. She and Bonnie then reunite. Not long after, Elena reunites with Stefan.]

There’s always been something supernatural about this rare type of twin soul love connection in stories. It’s there with Jane and Rochester (remember when he cries out her name in agony from many miles away? She hears him calling to her and decides to return home to him.) It’s there with Teddy and Emily in The Emily Trilogy by L.M. Montgomery. Emily saves Teddy when she appears to him from hundreds of miles away calling him toward her which causes him to miss the very thing that would have killed him.

So what if Klaus in a moment of pure anguish cries out for Camille? Inspired by this moment from the books (that has oddly never been used in either show), Klaus could cry out for her. And because of his heroic actions (becoming more of the man Cami believes he can be), the ghosts on the other side – which would be the “opposite” of the destructive ancestors – reward him for his good deeds. They send Camille back to Klaus in human form (or even a new form with powerful “light” magic) due to the strength of their love – their “immortal” bond. His attempt at redemption rewarded with light from those who died with “light.” People like Cami and Jenna who simply crossed over. Like Gandalf the White, their “power” is much stronger than the ancestors or any other evil, destructive force.

There is usually an opposite in all things. If these ancestors on the other side are capable of so much evil, then wouldn’t it make sense for there to be another side capable of good? Just one idea to throw out there.

What about Davina?

Now, I’d go off about Davina dying but we all know it’s temporary. This will be a repeat from season 1 when Davina returns from the other side since she’s a witch. That or we’ll have another dead female character on our hands after Davina helps them defeat the ancestors. Take your pick. Neither would be especially surprising.

I’m not going to sit here and claim that I’m done watching this series. The show is still very well written. And to be fair, this is one of the ways a Byronic love story can end. And Cami’s death (which truly was portrayed so honestly by Leah Pipes) was one of the more “real” deaths I’ve seen. Cami’s fear and reaction to dying was sincere and beautiful. I just hope the writers don’t decide to give Klaus another love interest for the rest of the series. I don’t feel it would be true to his character. Their kindred connection was too strong and will not be broken – even in death.

Well, what did you think of “No More Heartbreaks?” Were you surprised by the outcome? Upset? Enraged? Sad? Or pleased? Let me know in the comments.

Till next time…

  1. What a beautiful post Amber! I couldn’t agree more. I too love the romance between Camille and Klaus and am very disappointed that they killed her off. The only way the character “ran its course” was because they wrote her that way. It’s upsetting that she gets such hate when many other characters also are written with limited possibilities. (What’s Marcel doing these days? Davina seems reduced to a lovesick teenager.) No one annoys me enough that I’d want them to die, however! I too am tired of TV’s focus on killing off characters in order to create shock value. It is predictable, and what’s more, you never really know when a character is dead since they (too) often bring them back to life! So that’s predictable too, when it should be done with more care and creativity or else it robs the audience of catharsis and the show of meaning. However, I do love your idea from the original books (Why don’t they follow more of the ideas from the books? Sounds more original than some of what they come up with.) I also have a small hope that they can bring her back. I have a feeling all the Originals are going to die, because they keep mentioning that “All will fall”, and if they die from Lucien’s bite they will have to be resurrected or else they can’t very well call it “The Originals” now can they? If they are resurrected then so can Cami. However, they will probably leave us hanging until next season and Leah Pipes may be otherwise employed by then.
    I don’t think it likely, but I would love if as you said, they show Klaus and Cami reunite at the end of the series a la Wuthering Heights. It’s nice to find another romantic who appreciated this redemptive love story. I love all your posts about The Originals and your comparisons to literature and the Byronic Hero.

    • Thank you! I love hearing from a fellow romantic. 🙂 We’re so rare! Haha.

      And yes, exactly. She hadn’t run her course. This was just the creative choice the writers made. It seems the head writer (Plec) was finished with her for whatever reason. And I have to respect that even though I 100% disagree with that creative choice. I’m not one to attack writers I disagree with. Did Cami’s death feel too soon creatively? Yes. Was it necessary? Nope. But at least it was true to who Cami was as a character. And it was true to Klaus as well and their romantic relationship. If there’s one pet peeve I have in writing, it’s to be inauthentic. So at least it wasn’t that. It could have been way worse.

      But yes, I also agree. How could Cami have run her course with an OBVIOUS amount of story left to tell over some of the other characters still alive and kicking? Over Davina (well, if she makes it), Marcel and even Josh? Look at Tyler, Jeremy and Matt over on The Vampire Diaries. They are all still alive somehow. While personally, I think ALL of them have more story to tell, I find it odd Plec chose to off Cami who clearly wasn’t finished telling her story. Does this come down to an attention span thing? I don’t know.

      Besides all the story possibilities for Cami, the relationship with Klaus was never able fully explored either. Even a couple episodes together before she died would have been welcome. I guess it really is like Villette where some people only even have minutes of happiness. So, that’s fair, I suppose. 🙂

      Again, it is her story, not mine. So I respect it.

      As far as TV and killing, I just find it completely frustrating. Sometimes it works WHEN it’s authentic to the story and not used as a plot device for shock value and a ratings boost. Look at TVline and their “scorecard” for May Sweeps. Isn’t it odd that killing tv characters has become a sport? How is that artistic? Death works when used properly to create proper catharsis as you say. The Good Wife did it well. While I don’t have a problem with some characters returning from death (depending on the genre of the show), it also needs to be done within reason. It’s becoming harder to take most shows seriously these days as killing has become too much of a crutch. The characters (and actors by extension) often objectified – used and tossed out at the whim of the writers.

      I wrote an in-depth response about my feelings related to killing characters here:
      https://www.silverpetticoatreview.com/2014/05/23/the-sport-of-killing-off-tv-characters-is-it-killing-creativity/

      That all said, I really think they should return to the books for some ideas. It’s not like they “suck.” You could easily twist them into something new like in the way I mentioned above! So while I don’t expect it, I do think that Cami for her goodness is a character who deserves to return – at least by the end for that Wuthering Heights ending!!

      Again, thank you. I’m glad someone enjoys my comparisons to literature and Byronic Heroes. 🙂

      • I agree!! And yes the other thing that sucked about her death was Klaus and Cami never really got to have a relationship!! Even if it was just for a couple of episodes! I think the fans at least deserved that!! I mean the writers pull us into this beautiful connection between the two of them and then we really never got the payoff we deserved!! That being said I don’t know if I’m ever watching this show again I’m that disappointed in it!! Any suggestions of shows to watch with that special Klaus/Cami connection? I’m going to need to get my fix somewhere!! Haha

        • Well, if you’re looking for recommendations of couples with that special Klaus/Cami relationship I have plenty. I define these romances as a “twin” soul connection almost verging on the supernatural. It’s the emotional bond described in the Bronte novels and often includes a Byronic Hero (though not always). Here are some recommendations:

          1. Mick and Beth from Moonlight – Beth is very similar to Cami. And they definitely have that special bond. The writers were also influenced by the Bronte like Byonic romances and Beauty and the Beast.

          2. The Doctor and Rose – Doctor Who (only the first four seasons of New Doctor Who). This connection becomes even clearer by season two.

          3. Mitchell and Annie – Being Human UK; I’d say this would be a very good choice. Their connection becomes stronger and stronger though out the series and is probably the BEST representation of a Bronte like Byronic Hero in modern day television. When they are separated, for instance, Mitchell can “feel” her ripped from him in just the way Charlotte Bronte described it.

          4. Scully and Mulder – The X Files; If you haven’t seen it, I’d say give it a chance. Everyone copies this relationship but Scully and Mulder did it best. Their bond is pure and emotional and only becomes stronger. One of my favorite TV romances. They definitely have this “twin” soul bond I keep talking about.

          5. Watch adaptations of Jane Eyre (my favorites are the 1983, 2006 and 2011 adaptations – though 1944 one is good too. There are a couple other decent adaptations as well.) No doubt Klaus and Cami was influenced by Jane Eyre. The 2006 adaptation is a miniseries so may feel like a show to you.

          6. Wuthering Heights adaptations. There’s the 1939 one (good but not quite like the book), 1992 one, 1998, then 2009. None of these have quite captured the book – though the 1992 one and 1998 adaptations are closest. This story also clearly influenced Klaus and Cami.

          7. Max and Logan – Dark Angel; The girl plays the darker character in this story. But their bond is very deep. And she can “sense” when he’s hurt – likely due to their blood bond.

          8. Max and Liz – Roswell; There’s even a scene where she dream walks to him and saves his life due to their deep connection.

          9. Nick and Natalie – Forever Knight. A vampire series from the 90s. Natalie has a very similar dynamic with Nick that Cami does with Klaus. Sure, it has some cheesy 90s effects but the writing is truly great. All the vampire shows are influenced by this one. It even came out before Buffy – which was obviously influenced by this show. Natalie is similar to Cami as she’s always trying to counsel Nick and help redeem him.

          10. Angel – esp. season 1 and 2. The dynamic between Kate and Angel might interest you. Their story never quite finishes and ends on a mysterious question mark – but it’s intriguing enough to watch.

          11. You can always watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer if you haven’t. The Buffy/Angel dynamic as well as the Spike/Buffy ones are very entertaining.

          12. Beauty and the Beast from the 1980s might be a good show to watch. I quite like it – though it does go down a tragic angle to warn you.

          13. The new show Lucifer seems to be going down this path. It’s not quite there yet, but I think it will be by season 2. This show is MUCH better than it sounds. The dynamic between Lucifer and Chloe is very similar to Klaus and Cami. Lucifer is like a vampire show without him being a vampire. And it’s definitely a Byronic Hero love story that I believe is building to this soul connection love.

          14. If you’re looking for a really deep, soul connection romance then I can’t recommend La Femme Nikita (1997) enough. A great, underrated series with a fantastic romance.

          15. And I always recommend Veronica Mars. LOL. Even though that one might not be the same as this type of twin soul bond. But maybe it is, I’d have to think about it.

          Hope that gives you some choices that you haven’t seen! I’ll probably turn this into a list/article with more details and choices soon too. 🙂

          Reply
          • I would also add the Anne of Green Gables miniseries from 1985, 1987 and 2000. L.M. Montgomery understood the kindred spirit romance better than anyone. And this is a lighter version of this type of twin soul love.

          • Thanks so much for all of your recommendations!! I will definitely try some of them! I need to fill the Klaus/Cami void!! They were probably my favorite tv couple of all time!! I’ve only watched Roswell and Anne of Green Gables from your list so I definitely have a lot to choose from!! Thanks again and love your reviews!!

          • You’re welcome. 🙂 If you haven’t seen any of these then you should definitely have some great shows to watch! And thank you! Glad you like them.

          • “4. Scully and Mulder […] They definitely have this “twin” soul bond I keep talking about.”
            YES! Remember when they got pulled out from underground (the fungus thing?) and in the ambulance he reaches for her hand and she reaches back, without ever opening her eyes?? So simple…and yet, GUH, that moment has stayed with me for YEARS! Also…La Femme Nikita?? No one EVER loves ALL of my fav ships…We MUST chat. 😀

          • I LOVE that moment! Such a great one. 🙂 Their connection is so pure and emotional which is what makes me love them! I know, right? Everyone looks at me like I’m crazy when I mention these shows. 🙂 We must be kindred spirits! Haha.

  2. I think they really just caved into the pressure of other fan bases and decided to end the Klaus and Cami relationship. It’s a cop out to say there was no more to Camille’s story to tell since we all know that’s not true! Since it would be a total injustice to the story they had been telling for 3 seasons of their soul connection if they were both still on the show but not together, they ended it with them declaring their love for each other and Klaus saying she’d be with him forever. It’s so disappointing to the loyal fans of the show that they strung along for three years building up this beautiful relationship to just abruptly end it when there was so much more to tell!

    • I suppose that’s a possibility. It happened before with Ellen and Jo on Supernatural. That was a mistake. I hope that’s not the case as stories should be about what’s true to the characters and story and not about appeasing a loud group of fans. That said, I don’t think death will end this story. Not if the writers stay true to what’s been presented thus far. I expect Klaus to keep his focus on Camille – abiding his time till they can be reunited. That’s what a Byronic Hero does. Their story should live on even if she is dead. Still, it’s disappointing they chose to kill her this early on. I would have waited till almost the end of the series and then had them reunite a half season later with the show’s final episode! But that’s just me. 🙂

    • The Caroline and Klaus fans are mentally deranged. There isn’t even that many if them. There is just the few that are so loud they ruin it for everyone.

      Julie Plec did kill Cami so for the exact reason you stated. She might even get a new show out of it (with the rumored show about Alaric and Caroline running a school for witch kids with Hope)

  3. I cannot even put into words how angry I am with the death of Camille and Julie Plec’s comment about her story being over is so absurd it literally makes my blood boil.

    I never watched the Originals til after the Vampire Diaries ended so when I started watching the show I had no idea what to expect. I knew about Haylie and Elijah from a few youtube videos but that was it and Cami and Klaus quickly became my favorites.

    I won’t be watching season 5. I barely got through season 4 and as much as I love Caroline from the Vampire diaries I will not sit through her being put with Klaus.
