Stefan leaves Mystic Falls for New Orleans in The Vampire Diaries 7×14 “Moonlight on the Bayou” episode!
In The Vampire Diaries 7×14 “Moonlight on the Bayou” episode Stefan goes to New Orleans for safety and to lure vampire hunger Rayna away from his Mystic Falls friends.
With Stefan crossing over to The Originals, will Caroline eventually follow? Only time will tell.
According to executive producer Julie Plec, “The crossover was born out Stefan needing a place to escape. He’s on the run. He needs to go somewhere where magic can’t find him, and we realized he can go to New Orleans where there’s that bar where magic doesn’t work.”
With the crossover Joseph Morgan, who plays Klaus Mikaelson, will be a special guest. Joseph revealed that he’s happy to guest star on The Vampire Diaries and to have Paul Wesley be a guest star on his show, “If we can come up with something good, absolutely.”
With the sire line and war with the trinity going on, and the prophecy that one of three Originals, or maybe all of them, will die, it was the perfect storyline. According to Joseph, “The fear of that impacts Stefan directly, and so he sticks around for an Originals episode to participate in the latest dilemma to come out of that situation.”
This episode is the first hour of a two hour crossover event between The Vampire Diaries and The Originals!
