The Vampire Diaries Spoilers: Who Will Save Damon?

by at . Comments

With Damon force-feeding Elena, Tyler transitioning and biting Damon, and Klaus turning Jenna into a freaking vampire, The Vampire Diaries was insane last Thursday.

Who can even guess what's to come these next two weeks!

Well, executive producer Julie Plec doesn't have to. She knows, and shared some insight with TV Guide on what happens next for our favorite residents of Mystic Falls.

Excerpts of Plec's comments on various TVD topics below:

Jenna went from being blissfully unaware vampires even exist to becoming one - and an integral part of the long-awaited ritual at that. It's a lot to process.

"The next episode takes place over the rest of the night," Plec says.

"It is Klaus' attempt in executing the sacrifice ritual to break the curse, and what everyone else has to do to try to keep her from being the vampire that Klaus sacrifices."

Damon's werewolf bite has no known cure. So what does he do?! "The finale is basically the end of the road of Damon's journey for the year," Plec says.

"He's done so many things and made so many choices that have been so screwed up and now he's at the end of his life, so he believes, and needs to come to terms with all the decisions he's made in the year, and since Katherine seduced him 145 years ago."

"[He'll] relive the mistakes he made with Katherine [and] try to get Elena's forgiveness."

Stefan will try to save Damon, teases Plec, and is "determined to do anything he possibly can. Stefan's whole cross to bear is, 'Wait a second, my brother is finally showing his humanity? The humanity that I took away from him 145 years ago?"

"With no cure, what the hell is he going to do? That's the finale."

Elena does not want to be a vampire, which marks a divergence from Twilight. "When we started the show, the similarities were so extreme," Plec says.

"This was a way of closing the book on that chapter of similarities. I was happy to have this introspection when the choice has already been made for her."

Damon will try to get Elena's forgiveness, but after what he just did, that's not gonna be easy. "This is [Damon's] biggest lesson to learn," Plec says.

"You can love someone with all the power in your soul, but you still have to remember who they are and what they want. In the final episode, Damon needs to seek her forgiveness for what he did and he desperately wants it."

His extra reason? The bite: "'I can't die with you hating me,' that's his point."

Damon can't really die though, right? "Anybody can die!" and "Who needs Ian Somerhalder?" Plec joked, but adds that she's not afraid to make tough choices.

"There will be severe and tragic consequences, and loss of life [will] be extreme over the last several episodes," the shot-caller adds. "It's a vampire show, and in a vampire show, the stakes are high and the death count has to match that."

"If you guys don't believe the consequences aren't life and death, then we're not doing our job. Unfortunately we've set into motion a ritual that needs a lot of sacrificial elements. We hope that the audience trusts our decision as storytellers."

"There will be decisions that are not popular, always."

Vampire Diaries needs Damon Salvatore and I NEED DAMON TOO: I want to see Elena and Damon on screen with chemistry on the set oozing out of them like they are like fire and gasoline.
Also love Katherine and Stefan together: Stefan needs a dark side: Hate his good side.The show needs Katerina and Damon3
Viva Damon and Katrina WE LOVE THEM.

As for Damon, I am sure he'll return season 3: Suspense is good for viewers: It was tragic for Elena to lose so many people close to her.I was happy when that boyfriend of hers offered to sacrifice his life for Jenna but Klaus wasn't interested in his life. Downer!!! As for Elena, Damon's obsession with her is becoming boring especially since she is clearly not interested in him. Shes a witch any way why die for her?. He should dump her and move on to some hotter chick.

I've been reading these comments above and I do agree that Damon brings excitement to the show where as Stefan and Elena have become dull. Julie Plec must be keeping us all guessing: Damon most likely will die but return as human that way Elena recalls what he had compelled her to forget:
that scene where he's being unselfish with her because he loves her: She wants and longs to have a family to live her life: Stefan will realize Damon is better off with Elena and pulls away clearing the way for their love to flourish when Damon returns as a human and Stefan realizes he can give Elena the life she wants. Also, Katherine will prove she came back for Stefan because she loves him and she starts to show a little humanity herself: The End And eventually they kill Klause and Elijah.
