Julie Plec teases what’s to come for the show’s super-couple, Stefan’s next step and the newest vampire-turned-human!
The Vampire Diaries took a few crazy turns on the May 16 season finale, and it sounds like executive producer Julie Plec is just getting started. In a new interview with E! Online, she hints at her plans for all of your Mystic Falls faves this fall.
Damon & Elena Finally Find Happiness
“We’re definitely going to have our fun with Elena and Damon, who have taken so much time to find their way to each other really and truly,” she promises. “We’re going to be able to enjoy that for a while.”
Sadly, it won’t take long for “circumstances and other supernatural influences” to drive a wdge between them, but hopefully they’ll be able to overcome whatever’s thrown their way. Someone in this town deserves a happy ending!
Katherine’s Fresh Start
Katherine (Nina Dobrev) received the ultimate punishment when Elena literally forced the cure down her throat, as Julie says she’s “the one person on the planet who would hate to be a vampire more than anything.”
And for good reason! Now that she’s vulnerable, she’ll have to watch her back for enemies — and you’d better believe she’s got a target on her back.
“Not only is she on the verge of getting her ass kicked every single episode, she’s going to need protection,” Julie says. “And who better to seek out for protection than the brothers Salvatore who have been so good at caring on and off for her over the centuries?”
Stefan & Bonnie Face New Struggles
In a nutshell, we should expect crazy things from Silas, as he impersonates his “shadow self” in Mystic Falls.
“His mission has been singular from the beginning, which is he wants to take the cure and die and get rid of the other side so he can pass on and be reunited with his one true love,” Julie says. “However, the cure’s off the table, the other side’s off the table, so he’s going to have a pretty enormous plan B for how to deal with that.”
As for Bonnie, the witch-turned-ghost will be a regular in season five, but she’ll struggle to find a way to have a “physical relationship” with Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen).
