Julie Plec Previews Future of The Vampire Diaries

at . Comments

When The Vampires Diaries concluded its November 19 episode, Damon was thwarted, Stefan was heartbroken and Elena was stalked by a shadowy figure.

What will happen next to each of these character? Fans will have until January 14 to debate that question in our Vampire Diaries forum, as The CW won't air new episodes until that date.

Fortunately, in a recent interview, producer Julie Plec gave TV Guide Magazine a few hints of what's to come. Warning, a few show spoilers are ahead...

On the next new episode: Our first episode back is a very Damon and Elena-centric story. The two of them go off on a little adventure and bond in a way she didn’t think they were capable of... Also, Gina Torres guest stars as a witch that Damon goes to visit.

On a likely love triangle: As we go through the rest of the season, [Damon is] going to get to know Elena better and better. And can Elena and Stefan’s relationship survive her learning the truth about Katherine? Damon never lied to her and didn’t’ have sex with her. At least not yet.

(TV Fanatic note: WHOA!!!)

On the mystery vampire: Who he is and what he wants is our next big step. We’ll also learn whether the tomb can be happened and what would happen if he does.

Among other topics Plec teased and previewed:

  • Alaric will continue to act as a father figure for Jeremy;
  • Bonnie will become "very powerful;"
  • Viewers will eventually discover who turned Logan into a vampire.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
