Major Deaths Ahead on The Vampire Diaries

by at . Comments

Were you surprised by Vicki's death on last week's episode of The Vampire Diaries?

If so, producer Kevin Williamson has a message for fans: there's more where that came from!

In an interview with MTV this week, Williamson said he wants to keep viewers on the constant edges of their seats.

"I don't want to be that show where there's no jeopardy. [Some shows] are all very predictable in the sense that, well, 'We know this is the lead character so we know he won't die.' Or, 'That's a regular, so he won't die, it'll be a supporting person."

Damon and Elena

Might Damon or Elena actually die? Sound off on these characters in our Vampire Diaries forum!

While Kayla Ewell was featured prominently on the show's first six episodes, Williamson intended to kill her character off all along.

Poor Vicki was a sacrificial lamb, one needed to prove to fans that no one is safe in Mystic Falls.

"I want the show to have an unpredictable quality to it, and I think that's going to come now and the audience will realize I will kill them — we will kill the main characters," Williamson said. "This is a show that will go there."

Hopefully, it will do a better job of going there than Heroes has. That show can't even get a major death right.

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.
