Ahead on The Vampire Diaries: Elena vs. Katherine!

at . Comments

The major cliffhanger on which The Vampire Diaries concluded its perfect first season will play a major role on season two, producer Julie Plec says.

Referring to the shock of Katherine arriving in Mystic Falls, Plec told TV Guide Magazine this week that "one of the big surprises [on season two] is that Katherine comes face to face with Elena."

This will be interesting for Nina Dobrev, of course, who joked about asking for two paychecks next year and talked about the challenge in playing dual roles in one scene: "It will be difficult because a lot of acting is reacting to the other person, but it'll be fun to step out of my comfort zone."

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

You are literally the best person I've ever known. And for me to think I could ever change you was giving me way too much credit and you way not enough… you're the good. And I need a little good in my life.

Damon [to Elena]
