Well, now that the veil has been dropped, is it possible we see Mikael at the end of next week's season finale? It would only make sense if this Vampire Hunter went to New Orleans to hunt out Klaus.
It would be awesome if they ended next week's episode showing him drinking in a bar in New Orleans, after they show us the cliff hanger for Mistic Falls.
Bartender in New Orleans: "Excuse me sir, can I get you anything"?
Camera pans up from hands to head, slowly
Mikael: "I'm afraid what I'm looking for you can't get me..."
And then BANG! We see Mikael's smiling face, holding a picture of Klaus (or something), or better yet- the White Oak Stake.
What do you think?
