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:

Damon and Elena Photo

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."

After I watched 'The Sun Also Rises', I felt so empty I wanted to scream (or cry). I spent about half an hour trying to find 'As I Lay Dying' to watch and see what happens to Damon, but I did find a few pictures of him trying to confort a sobbing Elena. Has any one read the last book in the Vampire Diaries series (by L.J. Smith)? Well, I actually CRIED when Damon died, but he THANKFULLY came back to life! So hopefully, if (hoping never) Damon dies in the TVD, then he's sure to come back to life...I hope. Anyways, I think everyone agrees that Damon MUST NOT die for a long time. I hope after this Season they will produce Season 3. And 4. And 5. And 6 etc. LoveDamon

If damon dies and i pledge that i wont be one of those 4 million viewers that watches vampire diares. All of my friends love/ adore damon and if he dies the show dies with him. If anything kill off stefan, matt, or sheriff forbes part because they are boring and it puts me to sleep.

No they won't remove Damon but he's gonna become one hell of a hybrid and he's gonna battle Klaus. At least that's what i think.

damon wont die. but if he will they all know that they will lose viewrs. sometimes i think hes more of a main character then nina. andd if they did vampire diares wouldnt be the same the whole plot of the story of tvd books and show is a luv triangle so if they kill of a big part of the luv triangle then they should change the name of the show.

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

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.
