alright let’s talk about these interviews/promo today

hopepeacelovejoymikaelson:

so we been getting some good gems today about klayley. I for one don’t expect them to become romantic this season BUT i think some interesting things were said about the nature of their relationship. 

First it’s confirmed that Klaus will play a big part in helping hayley with being a hybrid. We all kinda guessed that but it was really vague up until this point but its not anymore. *praise dance* There will even be scenes where he step by step guides her on how to control her senses and her smell and all that good stuff. He will mentor her and help her with her transition which makes perfect sense because he’s a hybrid, and he also understands how she’s feeling at the moment. They both are really thirsty for blood and revenge and they are grieving having to give their daughter away. Klaus has a little more control at the moment because he’s been a vampire for centuries and understands how to control his emotions a little better, but even still klaus will still have a hard time maintaing control himself as evidenced by his talk with elijah in the promo and his failing at painting. We know painting is how klaus get’s control, and he will struggle with that. Hayley’s struggle will be even worse because she will have no ounce of control initially. I think that it’s a given that they will partake in some bad behavior together because they are both going through so much and both are gonna have a hard time curbing their desire for revenge but I think klaus will be able to be probably the only person who can reign hayley in if she gets out of hand, and only if she gets out of hand. I think he will try to teach her how to master her new abilities, how to use them to her advantage to not just feed and slaughter but to take down her enemies one by one systematically. I mean we really are getting klaus and hayley hybrid sessions!

okay now to Joseph’s interview. i’ll quote it 

interviewer: so klaus, his relationships with people are complicated to say the least, multi-faceted. I would love to hear though what’s gonna happen with Klaus and Hayley in season 2 because they are truly bonded for life, they had a baby together, they’re both hybrids, what are we gonna see happen between them?

Joseph: we’re gonna see Klaus take on more of a mentor student role with hayley, now she’s a hybrid, she’s struggling to come to terms with her sense of identity. you know who is she now’s she’s part vampire, part werewolf so klaus is gonna, in his own way help her come to terms with that and who she is. For me there is sort of a brother sister potential with those characters. I don’t see it becoming romantic interests necessarily for him and you know it would be bad for her if it did  because that’s ended badly in every case for him over the years, I feel like she’s better off, well maybe not because it ended badly with her sister as well. I don’t know what to tell you, she’s badly off either way. 

alright so joseph says that Klaus will be helping hayley figure out who she is. We know that she will be lost and that her family will reject her. We also know judging from the trailer that Elijah won’t be a fan of her behavior either. I think what Joseph said here lines up with we know already about what’s gonna happen. Hayley will most likely lean on klaus to figure out how to actually be a hybrid and to actually embrace who she is now. She didn’t want this but it’s her reality and if she’s gonna ever really be okay she’s gonna have to come to terms with being a hybrid now, she will have to embrace that part of herself and she will need someone who will help her do that. That’s gonna be klaus because he knows the struggle of being something you never wanted to be, something with conflicting natures, and the struggle of trying to control both your natures when they both make you want to just do some crazy shit. Hayley said it herself, she already had a temper and a certain dark quality to her when she was just a werewolf, now she has a thirst to go with that and it’s gonna make her want to do lots of dark shit after what happened to her, just like it’s gonna make Klaus want to do lots of dark shit. The difference between he and hayley and klaus has a better handle on controlling that than she does. Even if it’s not a lot because we know klaus crazy as shit, it’s still something because we will see him actually struggle to maintain control whereas Hayley’s struggle will be actually gaining control of herself not maintaining control.Klaus knows that she’s gonna have to curb her desires and gain some sort of control and then maintain it if they really want to get shit done for their daughter, which is why I think Klaus will be fine letting hayley get her shine on but there’s a boundary he won’t let he go past because he knows the danger, and despite him not being weary of her behavior like others would be I don’t think he actually wants to see Hayley slip that far down this rabbit hole. That’s the kinda thing a mentor does.
