The brave bartender is back… sort of.

When The Originals released the first promo for its upcoming fourth season, there was one face fans were especially shocked to see: Cami O’Connell sitting next to Klaus. Now, just to clarify: Cami died during the show’s third season, and considering that Klaus has been imprisoned for five years when season 4 picks up, there’s a good chance he’s simply imagining her. But for fans of Klaus and Cami, does it really matter?

“It’s pretty clear that Cami was someone who had a massive impact on the entire show and our entire cast of characters but in particular, Klaus,” showrunner Michael Narducci tells EW. “I am positive that the words that she shared with him before she died were echoing in his mind as he went through that trial, as he was stabbed by Marcel, and while he has been tormented and incarcerated for the past five years.”

And even though the show picks up five years after Klaus’ sacrifice, fans can bet that the characters are still dealing with what happened during that time. As Narducci puts it, “[Klaus] felt every moment of that five years, in terms of the solitude and the pain and being ripped away, not only from his family, but his daughter. Coming out of that, he’s going to struggle a bit, and we will see some of that struggle. We’ll also get a sense of how he managed to endure and what was going on psychologically with him in his mind for all that time.”

There’s a good chance that Cami’s return has everything to do with “what was going on psychologically” with Klaus during those years. “It gets into the question of once someone comes into your life and influences you in that kind of way, are they ever really separate from you or are they always a part of you?” Narducci says. “I think the show definitely answers that question.”

The Originals returns for season 4 on Friday, March 17 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.


Are we going to get an Aurora-Cami showdown on The Originals? — Shawn
The real question is whether you want an Aurora-Cami showdown. While Cami is rightly pissed, she’s also “facing the classic conundrum of how would I ever kill a thousand-year-old psycho vampire?” Leah Pipes says. In short, Cami won’t suddenly be all powerful — much like Josh’s transition, where he was “somewhat powerless” at first.


The Originals’ Klaus Mikaelson is not an easy man to love. Well, at least not if you live within the universe of the show. Let’s be honest: He’s got a lot of baggage, a bit of a temper, and at any given point, someone is probably trying to kill him. And yet, New Orleans has one human who can’t seem to shake her feelings for a monster — Cami.

While on set of The Originals, EW sat down with both Joseph Morgan and Leah Pipes to talk about the connection between their characters and what it is that draws them together.


Are Cami and Kinney going to become an item on The Originals? — Sharon
Don’t forget that Cami is still dealing with her “complicated feelings” for a particular monster, but that being said, never say never. Leah Pipes assured my colleague Samantha Highfill that we’ll be seeing more of the duo soon. “It’s nice for Cami to meet someone with solid morals,” Pipes says. But, “Like all relationships, it’s not happily ever after. Everyone’s a suspect and it’s complicated, and New Orleans is not a safe place to be. They’re not instant best friends and braiding each other’s hair, but there’s definitely something there.”
