I was commenting the other day how I can see more motivation from Josh and be more invested in him in the few scenes he’s had than all of Hayley put together =/
I know right! Josh who has been seen for only a couple of episodes already has more backstory than Hayley who has been with them a hell of a lot longer. Same with Cami. Hayley’s tied to The Original family, she’s been with the show for a good while and yet there’s still no sign of development with her character. It’s really hard to connect with her when the audience has nothing to go on, nothing to draw from.
I used to spot potential in their dynamic. However, my opinion has since changed. There’s no visible relationship between either of them as friends or otherwise. Klaus carries no sensible respect for her as the mother of his child or as an individual person. She’s protected by him until she ceases to be of use (which will more than likely be when the baby is born — she may not necessarily die, or maybe? who knows — but she’ll definitely cease to be his priority).
Hayley as an overall character lacks principle (in my own opinion) and I feel that’s because the writers have failed to give her a more in depth background. She constantly reminds the audience that she was abandoned by her birth parents, and thrown out by her foster ones. And then she has been seen doing all these things in canon but there’s no reason or motivation behind her actions? She’s mainly existed as a prop for the plot. I can’t really get behind it as a ship at the moment. Nor do I think I would even if the circumstances changed.
Naturally, I just don’t have any real attachment to Klaus with female characters. (Other than Rebekah) and I realize that may not be what other people want to hear but the character of Klaus himself hates women. So to invest in any kind of relationship with him and a female character is difficult for me. That’s not to say I will not ever write a Klaus and female character ratio, because I will and I have… I just don’t get very invested in them. Though, I do challenge myself to explore it. So yeah.
