When Nora and Mary Louise destroyed the Phoenix Stone (and themselves along with it), I assumed this meant that Stefan's soul would be released into another person's body. What I didn't predict, though, was that the body Stefan is trapped in would look eerily like Klaus Mikaelson. That's right, my friends. Whether it was done intentionally or not, Marty looks exactly like Klaus on The Vampire Diaries and it is not going unnoticed amongst viewers. But the real question here is why? Are the writers just messing with us on this one or will this eventually turn into a significant detail down the line?
Part of me really wants to believe the latter, not just because it would make for a pretty interesting twist, but also because I'll take any excuse to see Klaus back in the Mystic Falls area. (Though, right now, we seem to be spending a lot of time in Dallas, but you get what I mean.) A TVD episode with Klaus in it, is a TVD win in my book. However, the fact of the matter is that despite how much this guy may resemble Joseph Morgan, it isn't actually him at all. So I have a feeling that this, unfortunately, isn't going to amount to anything. Kinda like how everyone noticed that Rayna just so happened to look a lot like Elena. Yet you can't deny that the resemblance is uncanny.
And fans are freaking out about it...
But regardless of how this ends up playing out, it was nice to catch even a small glimpse of Klaus 2.0 up on the small screen and back with the original characters that made his character so popular. Even if it was really confusing.
