"The Originals" has been on a hiatus since the season 2 finale, and it will return with bloodier and nastier episodes on 8 October. When the show returns, we will get to see what happens to the first Vampire family after the epic battle with Dahlia.
Towards the end of the last episode in season 2, every action of Klaus (Joseph Morgan) that made his family hate him, was explained with one simple answer; he will do anything for his daughter. And he did go to unfathomable lengths to ensure his daughter's safety, including cursing the baby's own mother Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) to the life of a werewolf.
Although fans have forgiven Klaus for these actions, no one in his family has, especially his brother Elijah (Daniel Gillies), who is in love with Hayley. The only reason he returned to Klaus is to ensure that his niece is brought up right. Even with his beloved sister Rebekah (Claire Holt/ Maisie Richardson-Sellers) having given up on Klaus, the only ally he can hope for, one whom he can expect to understand his actions, is Freya (Riley Voelkel), his long-lost sister who has returned after centuries.
Although Klaus mistrusted her in the last season, Freya is the only one who knew Dahlia's (Claudia Black) limitless powers and the only one who understood that every choice that Klaus made, had to be made to protect his daughter and defeat Dahlia. Moreover, she is the only witch left on his side, and he will definitely need one, now that Davina (Danielle Campbell) has made her intentions of destroying the Mikaelsons clear.
The only person who understands Klaus, even with all his evident faults, is Cami (Leah Pipes), who was left waiting for a kiss yet again in the season 2 finale. She had even confessed to having "complicated feelings for a monster". Fans can clearly see that glazing over her overwhelming desire to find the goodness in Klauss, is her innate need to be with him.
One of the main reasons Klaus is letting Cami slip away is because he fears for her. If any of his enemies find out that he does indeed love her, he cannot protect Cami; and that is more important to Klaus. Moreover, he is best capable of protecting those around him when he is savage and cruel, not when he is loving and caring, as the show runners have explained time and again.
It is going to be difficult for him to transition into becoming a lover; but that doesn't mean he isn't going to try. However, there are more dangerous enemies to be fought first.
