No matter what Klaus does and no matter how big the conflict between them, Elijah never stops loving his brother. It can be difficult to do, seeing as how Klaus has committed many a heinous act in his day and can come off like he doesn’t need anyone in his life, but Elijah knows the importance of family and how, at the end of the day, all he has are Klaus and Rebekah. Yes, Hayley came into their lives recently and there’s a chance that the baby isn’t just a way for Klaus to sire more hybrids, but Elijah has been through centuries with his siblings and developed the type of bond with them that comes with that level of life experience. It can come off like Klaus gets what he wants and never has to face the consequences of his actions; in reality, though, Elijah knows that he and Rebekah keep Klaus (mostly) in check and without them, he would be in a far worse situation than he is now. But is that concern for Klaus’ well-being going to inspire Elijah to seek his brother out and hope that they can patch things up?
