Why The Originals Is Worth Rewatching Just For the Great, Sexy Evil That Is Klaus Mikaelson
When Niklaus "Klaus" Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) first appears in season two of The Vampire Diaries, he comes off as an arrogant, cocky, and selfish "Original" vampire set on getting what he wants, no matter the collateral damage. But the more we got to see the various sides of Klaus, the more I fell in love with him. He may have started as the ultimate villain of the franchise, but over the course of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, the 1,000-year-old hybrid evolves in so many ways. Klaus will always be the best character in the Vampire Diaries franchise, and he's more than enough reason to go back and revisit the show and its spinoff, if you haven't seen it in a while. But with so many iconic villains and heroes to obsess over, why is the big bad wolf such a fan favorite? Read on to find out.
