Producers Preview Vampire Diaries Return

by at . Comments

With just over a week until The Vampire Diaries makes it long-awaited return to The CW, producers Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson have sat down to discuss the show's past and future.

In the following interview, Plec breaks down the series, explaining how the first six episodes were essentially the "Vicki Chapter," as writers knew for awhile she'd be the first character to die.

Why did they go ahead with this storyline? In a possible jab at Heroes, Williamson said it was due to a major problem he has with many genre shows: viewers don't believe any lead players will ever be killed.

That isn't the case on The Vampire Diaries, not anymore. Watch the video below to learn what surprise awaits fans at the conclusion of next week's installment, "Bloodlines."

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.
