The Vampire Diaries Season 2 Spoilers: Producer Speaks on Katherine, Jeremy, Overall Themes

at . Comments

The Vampire Diaries' first season finale was unreal. Katherine, the long-lost love of both Salvatore brothers who "turned" them a century and a half ago, is back.

Much of the season was devoted to the search for Katherine, particularly on Damon's part. What can we expect with her in Mystic Falls? When will they find out?

Executive producer Julie Plec dished on that subject and others in an interview with TV Guide, which we've excerpted from below. Here's what Plec says about ...

Nina Dobrev taking on two characters at the same time: "Nina jokes that Katherine is Nina on Saturday night - definitely feisty, but by no means an evil, manipulative, horrible troll. For her to be able to play both the moral center and soulful, compassionate character, and then the narcissistic, selfish, manipulative, naughty minx is big for her."

Bonnie in the Background

Katherine's agenda: "She sets her sights on basically making sure that the Stefan and Elena love story hits a snag. It's going to be fun seeing Stefan and Katherine come up against each other. Obviously it's going to be fun to see Damon and Katherine because there's a lot of history there, too, but the triangle becomes the square."

When the Salvatores figure it out it's Katherine: "They both know within 15 minutes in the first episode. Damon realizes he was duped, and Stefan comes face-to-face with Katherine. The fun of it is how Stefan responds, as opposed to how Damon does."

The arc of Season Two: "What I loved about what 'Founders Day' gave us is that we had this small town that was building up to its big anniversary, and the long arc of the show is that history repeats itself. We're going to do something like that again this year."

Anna's death: We introduced the character knowing her exit would [have] a profound impact on Jeremy and Damon. For Damon, it was a glimpse of his humanity - he wanted to help her. We definitely knew she was there to make our heroes grow."

Jeremy: "We refuse to say what happens to Jeremy other than the fact that he's 'alive.' Regardless of that, the most important thing for Jeremy is that he's going to come out the other side of this with a much, much deeper and much stronger sense of himself."

I miss Anna so much. I really hope she is will coming back. Anna and Jeremy is so great together.


They have to bring anna back!! But not straight away, make us wait for it and make Jeremy's character develop more and then ressurect her!


Omg I love Jeremy, but he can be such a whiny little bitch. I hated him with Vicki, she was just awful, so I was glad he had found Anna. What makes it worse is that he really cared for her! Poor Jeremy can't catch a break. First his parent's, then Vicki, found out his sister isn't blood related, she hid the truth from him, and then anna died. I guess I can understand a little why he's such a baby about somethings aha I wish Anna was still around. Miss her like crazy! haha


i really wish anna was alive, i loved her character if im honest. i want to know how the love square will divide, i think that story line will be interseting to watch. i'm also intersted in the opposites happening. by opposites, i thinki it would be good if jeremy has the opposite effect, such as becoming a werewolf, or becoming a very well sensed human, with light vampire abilities, i think that would be amazing. i also would hope for katherine and stephan to get together, which im sure not many people have really tought about the outcome of, ( damon going mental because he loved/es her, and elaina getting vry mad, i also think damon and elaina hould get together, i think they would really pice things up in the whole town, with most characters in the seires. as well as that, i think it would be great if a bad streak comes out with stephan, he tries to kill elaina some how (probably because h's with katherine, and she tells him to kill her, and she wants this as elaina's a threat) and then damon is elaina's hero. but towards the end of the second series,i really want elaina to be turned, to be with her true love. xxx


ok so clearly Jeremy is a vampire. "the most important thing for Jeremy is that he's going to come out the OTHER SIDE of this with a much, much deeper and much STRONGER SENSE of himself."
Hmm, other side..obv other side of life as in VAMPIRE. And Anna told him he would have a stronger sense of himself and his emotions if he turned. Way to keep that secret.


Ugh i miss anna cant wait for the new season

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.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
