A New Love Interest?
The sole new human character introduced in the episode is Cami (Leah Pipes), a bright, independent psychology student who also tends bar at Rousseau’s, which would become a familiar haunt to viewers if a series is ordered. ”She refuses to believe in evil,” Plec says. ”She believes that every person has a story, and you just have to dig deep enough to try to get to the bottom of what their story is.” Though Cami doesn’t have much interaction with Klaus in the episode, Morgan says Klaus feels ”a little bit of understanding, like perhaps he could be related to” when he hears her interpretation of a dark painting they’re both drawn to in Jackson Square (pictured). Cami may be unaware that vampires exist, but they definitely notice her. ”Cami represents an allure to Marcel and ultimately, as a result of Marcel’s interest, will catch Klaus’s eye down the road,” Plec says. ”But in the meantime, Klaus is still very attached to Caroline Forbes and the idea of what it could be like if they were ever to be together. It’ll be a little bit of time before, if ever, he’s able to be distracted from that.”
