2.14 I Love You, Goodbye
Shows in this universe tend to concoct more and more ridiculous ways to get all of their characters into the same space with each other, whether it’s the weird Founders Balls of The Vampire Diaries or random street parties of The Originals, but in this week’s episode there was the most legitimate reason of all – a wedding that just happened to also unite all of the vampires, werewolves and hybrids of New Orleans into one super-pack.

According to Blastr, O'Barr has reportedly been in contact with former "Smallville" and "Being Human" actor Sam Witwer for some time about the role and believes the actor has "the look and ability" to portray Eric Draven. However O'Barr still needs to convince director Corin Hardy of the choice:
