Since Klaus’ introduction in season 2 he has been cast as the villain in The Vampire Diaries. Stefan told Caroline, “We’ve all done horrible things. I’m sitting here trying to figure out what makes us any better than him.” TV Guide has came up with 5 reasons that Klaus is not any worse than Stefan or his brother Damon.
1. Klaus only picked up where Damon left off
2. Klaus isn’t the only one who can’t control his impulses
3. We’re all victims of our upbringing
4. Klaus is just really, really lonely
5.Love heals all (even evil vampires)
