‘The Vampire Diaries’ Post-Mortem: Was That Really The End Of Jo?

Poor Alaric was forced to say goodbye to Jo once again on the devastating Nov. 12 episode of 'The Vampire Diaries.' But is Jo's road really over? Jodi Lyn O'Keefe sounds off to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY about a possible return. The beautiful Jo "died" once again on The Vampire Diaries, with Alaric by her side. Jo's been brought back to life once, so is she really gone for good? Jodi Lyn O'Keefe talks to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY about the whether or not this is end for Jo, her thoughts on Alaric and Caroline and more.

Is this the end for Jo? 

Here’s the thing — I thought it was the end of Jo last year. And then apparently it wasn’t the end for Jo. And then I thought it was the end for Jo again. They sort of like to tell me right before it all happens, so I know about as much as you do.

If it was the end for Jo, were you satisfied with her ending? 

I was. I really got the moment that I wanted for Jo and Alaric. I gave him a little bit of closure. I’m so attached to that cast and crew. I feel like I got what I wanted in the end…I’d love to go back. I’d love to be back with everyone again but if that was it, I’m happy with the work that I did. 

Do you think Jo would approve of Alaric and Caroline?

I think Jo would approve. Caroline’s one of my favorites.

How do you think Jo would react to Caroline carrying her twins?

I think she would be relieved. Her babies get to live. They’re a little piece of her and a little piece of Alaric. She’d be so happy they didn’t die as well on that terrible wedding day.

The Vampire Diaries airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
