With a seventh season on the way, Dobrev has announced she is leaving (as is Michael Trevino, who plays Tyler Lockwood) and officially commemorated the end of the Stelena era with a sweet Instagram post.

The Originals' Joseph Morgan on Klaus's 'Crazy and Irrational' Return and Why He's 'Proud' of the Show's Passionate Fandom

Originally posted 04/02/2015 01:45PM

There's nothing like a baby daughter to soften the heart of a vampire-werewolf hybrid who's more than 1,000 years old – however, The Originals star Joseph Morgan wants you to know that Klaus will soon be rediscovering his "villainous" side.

When the Vampire Diaries spin-off returns from a brief hiatus on Monday, the threat of Dahlia (Claudia Black) looms large as our heroes deal with the more immediate danger of Eva Sinclair (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) and whether they can truly trust Freya (Riley Voelkel).

In an exclusive chat with PEOPLE, Morgan, 33, reveals what's next for Klaus, what's going to happen with that gold dagger and whether another Originals/TVD crossover is in the works – and what he'd like to see happen if and when it does. Morgan also addresses the passionate fans of one massively shipped couple (hint: Klaroline) whose supporters may be the most vocal and opinionated in the Vampire Diaries universe.

After six years starring as Damon on The Vampire Diaries, Ian Somerhalder moved behind the camera for the very first time to direct Thursday's episode.

Having just learned that his mother may have actually been alive (or, more accurately, undead) for the past 100-plus years, Damon enters "The Downward Spiral" with a whole new set of abandonment issues.

In an exclusive chat with PEOPLE, the actor, 36, opens up about what it was like to direct for the very first time (which, funnily enough, segued into musings about the inevitable march of time), what's coming up for Delena (and even Bamon) and his ideal ending for The Vampire Diaries.
