Great news for The Originals TV series fans — if things work out, there are chances that The Vampire Diaries alum Nina Dobrev will feature as Tatia in Season 4’s last two episodes.
The finale episode of The Vampire Diaries titled “I Was Feeling Epic” gave the viewers an insight into the writer’s mind. Episode 16 somehow made many believe that if the writers and studio decide, there is a possibility that the lead star cast of The CW’s supernatural series may appear in its spinoff.
During her time in The Vampire Diaries, Nina played the role of Elena Gilbert and Katherine Petrova. There are speculations that the world has not seen enough of Nina as a gorgeous vampire because there are chances that she could make another appearance in The Originals Season 4 as the first immortal woman Amara or Elijah’s beloved Tatia.
Tatia was a Petrova doppelganger with whom both Elijah and Niklaus fell in love with in the late 10th century. According to TVD’s storyline, she was the first doppelganger to be created from Amara’s line after her earliest known ancestor was turned into a true immortal in the 1st century B.C.
Tatia In The Vampire Diaries:
During TVD’s Season 2, Tatia was mentioned by both Klaus and Elijah. Her first reference was shown in the episode “Klaus,” during a flashback in which Elijah was introduced to Katerina Petrova.
When Elijah sees Katerina, the first thing he says, “I’m sorry, you remind me of someone.” In the same episode, Niklaus told Elijah that loving someone is the greatest mistake vampire does in his lifetime. Klaus went on to say that vampires do not feel or care about others, though Elijah then referenced Tatia by saying, “We did once.”
Tatia In The Originals:
In the released episodes of The Originals, Tatia was mentioned multiple times. In Season 2, she was mentioned in “Red Door,” “Chasing the Devil’s Tail,” “Gonna Set Your Flag On Fire,” and “Brotherhood of the Damned.”
Tatia has always come in Elijah’s flashes or dream, showing him what to do next. Recent speculations suggest that although The Originals storyline is disconnected with Tatia’s, there are chances that she will back again in Klaus or Elijah’s dreams or past memories.
If Tatia appears in The Originals Season 4, there are reports that as all the episodes of TVD are concluded, fans would like to see Nina Dobrev playing the role of Tatia.
However, chances of Nina’s coming back to the world of vampires are pretty slim. Her departure from The Vampire Diaries in between the series was questioned by many of her fans, but the Bulgarian actress made it clear during her interview with the Hollywood Reporter that from the very beginning she knew that she will not renew her contract.
“It’s been a great journey, but at the end of the day, I’m not actually a vampire. The fairy tale has to end, and the next chapter has to begin.”
This is not for the first time when the talks of Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder appearing in The Originals have surfaced online. During Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson’s earlier interview with the Deadline, they both shared their views on TVD’s spinoff.
“Caroline and Alaric opening up the school for special children is one avenue we could go down for a potential storyline for its own series.”
As of now, there is no official confirmation on the recent speculations but based on Nina’s fan following, it would be interesting to see if the executive producers or the network will convince Nina Dobrev to play the role of Tatia in The Originals Season 4.
