The Vampire Diaries Cast Reacts to Epic Season Finale

at . Comments

Talk about an OMG-worthy season finale.

Even the Vampire Diaries cast members themselves can't believe the shocking twists and the number of people left in jeopardy in Thursday's "Founders Day."

“I think you’re going to be asking, is that person really dead?” said Michael Trevino, whose character Tyler narrowly survived, at the Young Hollywood Awards.

For now it seems as though Anna (Malese Jow) and Mayor Lockwood (Robert Pralgo) are goners. “It doesn’t look too good,” says Candice Accola (Caroline).

As for Caroline's fate? She's suffering from internal bleeding and Accola shares viewers' curiosity. “I really don’t know [what’s going to happen]” she said.

“We have two months of agonizing in frustration to find out what’s happening.” (Click here for our discussion of Caroline's fate and other Round Table topics).

Founder's Day Parade

Talk about a Founders Day to remember in Mystic Falls.

One thing that’s definite? The return of Katherine, Stefan and Damon's long-lost love. Nina Dobrev (Elena) is looking forward to playing both parts in Season 2.

“I’m going to be playing two characters at once, so it’s going to be challenging, but it’s also going to be a lot of fun and really interesting,” she the show's star.

“She wreaked so much havoc before she was even here. For 21 episodes everyone teased everything she’s done, how horrible she is, how complicated she makes everyone’s lives."

"So now that she’s back you can imagine what next season is going to be like."

In short: It's gonna be bloody, gory and terrifying.

"A lot of people are going to die," Dobrev adds.

Steven R. McQueen, who plays Elena's brother Jeremy, was excited to be a part of "
Founders Day" drama: "I think we all took it as a blessing to be able to play these strange situations that can never occur in real life and just feel honored and blessed."

"Very eloquently said, right?" Zach Roerig, who plays Matt, added.

The show's male lead, Paul Wesley (Stefan), initially had his fears about doing so much in the season finale, but he was truly pleased by the way it all turned out.

"Well, I was like, 'Whoa, this a huge endeavor,'" the hunk said of reading the script. "The last four pages ... really take the audience on a little bit of a thrill ride. I mean, the whole thing's good, but the way it ends is kind of incredible."

Nina Dobrev agrees.

"I remember sitting in bed reading the script, and when I got towards the end it was so [crazy]. Every single episode of The Vampire Diaries, I feel I am always shocked and surprised. ... This one being the finale has to exceed all expectations and go above and beyond," she said.

"I think it does, and it's crazy and fun, and I had a lot of fun being crazy and doing bad things."

yes i agree, I'm dying for season II to start. i want to see Eleana & damon together, catherine & stefan together. i hope they dont kill catherine. she's so much more fun than boring elena. stefan & elena are boring. now damon & elena spark it up! I wish anna didnt hav to die, poor jeremy, evry time he like a girl she dies. he's had so much heart ache. he & anna were so cute together. im glad catherine killed that evil gilbert man, the one who put the steak through ann's heart. he was heartless bastard!


Okay SERIOUSLY I am still in shock! Just the thought of Kathrine returning to Mystic Falls sends shivers down my spine! I know season 2 is going to be absouletly incredible i have so many thoughts in my head about things like kathrine possing as elena and causing all kinds of heartache/trouble and i also have a feeling that Damon felt something alittle familar about that kiss! Okay heres the deal how i feel about the love triangle stefan and elena are a couple yes but somewhere deep inside elena has a spark for something more with Damon and and we dont know what to expect!! One thing I know for certain is that we will not be dissapointed with season 2 and i cant wait its going to be the longest few months of my life!!!!! 777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777777


I was so happy it wasn't Elena kissing Damon. I mean, they're brothers. I am turned off by Damon doing that to his OWN BROTHER's GF.


I was so pumped when Damon and Elena were kissing, I was basically out of my seat, cheering at the tv! hahaha! Then when I found out it was really Katherine, I was sooooo pissed, but kinda excited too.


i felt excited when Damon and Elena were kissing!and when i found she was Katherine,omg SHOCKED!!
the ending make me can't wait.
Season 2!


@Delenaivampires! Danggg.... I hadn't thought of that.... Stefan and Katherine.... hmm.... @Ashley That's an idea, Katherine taking Jeremy!!! Wouldn't that be just like something you can imagine her character doing? Turning him, just for old time's sake or revenge or because she felt like it? @Katherine I actually don't mind that the show is straying from the books - the books rock, don't get me wrong. But I loooove the direction the show is taking!!!


I was SOOOO happy when I thought Damon and ELENA were kissing. :P But it was Katherine, which totally sucks! I want Elena to be with Damon. I wish she and Stefan weren't so serious so that she could dump him. So many cliffhangers in this one! Tyler being a werewolf = awesome! Caroline being in the hospital surprised me. John dying, eh, not too torn up about that. I wonder what will happen now that Katherine killed him though - everything will undoubtedly be pinned on Elena. I thought her aunt would be grilling her for kissing Damon, but now that John is dead.... All in all, an AMAZING ep!!!!! Can't wait for September!


omg omg omg, wow that last episode was like breath taking at first i was like elana why are u kissing Damon and then when she was in the house and when jhon said katherins name i was what the heck? haha wow. that was like the best ep in the hole season, i love the part when katherine says '' hello jhon...Good bye jhon '' haha i love that part. Great episode cant wait for season two to start :D


i know rite!!! me and my friends want delena love to happen. stefan should have katherine and delena will be forever complete :) i feel like im gonna die, and its taking forever.


omg, i wonder if katherine found jeremy and took him with her! 0_o and i want elena&stefan to be togetherr!

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.


When 9 Russians tell you you're drunk, you lie down.
