'The Originals' Season 5 Brings Back Klaroline's 'Spark,' According to Julie Plec

Klaroline fans will be happy with the latest hints Julie Plec dropped ahead of "The Originals" Season 5.

The series creator and showrunner previously revealed that Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Caroline (Candice King) would be reunited in the CW series' final season, and now she is doling out other delicious tidbits. Plec shared the information Saturday during a Q&A session on Twitter, which she held to raise funds for the Hispanic Federation's UNIDOS disaster relief program. Needless to say, fans showed a lot of curiosity about Klaroline and the show's other ships.

One of the big takeaways from the Q&A was that Caroline will mostly be sharing the screen with Klaus during her multi-episode arc and that Plec has found it "fun to see their spark" again.

The showrunner also revealed that Caroline will "do a lot of reflecting" during her stint, namely on "what she was like as a teenager and what she's like now."

With all of this focus on Caroline, fans who prefer Klaus with Cami (Leah Pipes) will be pleased to know that there's at least a "sliver" of hope that we'll either see her or hear about her.

Meanwhile, Plec gave insight on Kol (Nathan Buzolic) and Davina (Danielle Campbell), promising we'll see them in Season 5, Episode 11. She also shared that Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) will deal with "love and pain in equal measure."

Season 5 isn't all about romantic relationships, though; as Plec put it, the "true ship of the season" is actually the Mikaelson family.

There's clearly a lot of interesting material in the 13 episodes to come. "The Originals" Season 5 will premiere in 2018.
