MY KLAMILLE HEART.
Klaus hallucinating Cami was so heartbreaking but also beautiful that he knows her so well that he’s able to conjure her up and unconsciously have her act and speak just like real Cami. In fact she seemed so real I wanted to believe she was a ghost but ‘Cami’ said she’s a figment of his imagination, his brain’s way of distracting himself from the pain. SOBS. Knowing Klaus has been conjuring her up like that during his five years of imprisonment and torture from the blade makes it all the more heartbreaking. But beautiful that he IS carrying her with him, like he said he would, making her ‘immortal’ like he said he would and not forgetting the things she taught him. She came into his life and changed him forever and I see the beauty in that story - that people can come into our lives and change us, have a huge impact on us but we can lose them suddenly, but we can still carry their spirit with us.
I’m still so upset the writers chose this storyline over continuing Cami’s storylines - after building up the O’Connell legacy for 3 seasons and then having Cami finally fully embrace it and plan to take on her Uncle’s work and then killing her off before she could do that is so frustrating. I’d never have wanted them to kill her off but if they had ever been going to kind of wish it could have happened much later in the show’s run, so they could have explored Cami’s role as the last O’Connell. Cause while we saw Cami learning about the dark objects and begin to use them more in season 3 and we saw her decide to become a vampire to continue her Uncle’s work, we never got to actually see her continue her Uncle’s work (the work her brother had been meant to do), which is something I think I’ll forever be disappointed about.
But I am glad they are honouring her memory, that Klaus is indeed carrying her with him in spirit. I think they confirmed Leah Pipes won’t be in anymore episodes this season (which is honestly a shame like can’t Klaus hallucinate her all season or have lots of flashbacks?) But I do hope we continue to see Klaus ‘carrying her with him’ and mentioning her throughout the rest of the season. I hope we have a grave visit even, as much as that will break our hearts!
I can’t get over how heartbreaking it was though, seeing Klaus talk to ‘Cami’ and her stroking his hair and knowing it wasn’t real and she wasn’t really there it HURTS! And knowing Klaus knows that too even as he talks to her makes it so hard to watch. He knows she’s gone but this is the only way he can see her now.
Though TVD confirmed with it’s season finale there is a Heaven and so Cami is probably reunited with her Uncle and Brother which makes me happy and maybe she is watching over Klaus too - in the TVD finale we saw the characters reunited with their loved ones in death in Heaven BUT we also saw Caroline’s mom Liz watching over her daughter SO even without the limbo of the other side they can still watch over their loved ones - I guess I kind of wish it could have been the real Cami too SOBS I JUST AM SO SAD we’ll never see them interact for real again except maybe flashbacks some day. I’m forever grumpy things have changed in the shows so bringing dead characters back to life suddenly isn’t possible or isn’t on the table anymore.
