Stefan meets Freya in The Originals

A Crossover Episode is the placement of two or more shows combining the characters, settings or universe into a single episode conjoined with either a spin-off or an entirely different series. In this case, The Originals is the spin-off of the The Vampire Diaries as The Original family was associated with the parent show, until the storyline developed and The Originals had succeeded with their own show.
