The Vampire Diaries Spoilers: Who Will Save Damon?

by at . Comments

With Damon force-feeding Elena, Tyler transitioning and biting Damon, and Klaus turning Jenna into a freaking vampire, The Vampire Diaries was insane last Thursday.

Who can even guess what's to come these next two weeks!

Well, executive producer Julie Plec doesn't have to. She knows, and shared some insight with TV Guide on what happens next for our favorite residents of Mystic Falls.

Excerpts of Plec's comments on various TVD topics below:

Jenna went from being blissfully unaware vampires even exist to becoming one - and an integral part of the long-awaited ritual at that. It's a lot to process.

"The next episode takes place over the rest of the night," Plec says.

"It is Klaus' attempt in executing the sacrifice ritual to break the curse, and what everyone else has to do to try to keep her from being the vampire that Klaus sacrifices."

Damon's werewolf bite has no known cure. So what does he do?! "The finale is basically the end of the road of Damon's journey for the year," Plec says.

"He's done so many things and made so many choices that have been so screwed up and now he's at the end of his life, so he believes, and needs to come to terms with all the decisions he's made in the year, and since Katherine seduced him 145 years ago."

"[He'll] relive the mistakes he made with Katherine [and] try to get Elena's forgiveness."

Stefan will try to save Damon, teases Plec, and is "determined to do anything he possibly can. Stefan's whole cross to bear is, 'Wait a second, my brother is finally showing his humanity? The humanity that I took away from him 145 years ago?"

"With no cure, what the hell is he going to do? That's the finale."

Elena does not want to be a vampire, which marks a divergence from Twilight. "When we started the show, the similarities were so extreme," Plec says.

"This was a way of closing the book on that chapter of similarities. I was happy to have this introspection when the choice has already been made for her."

Damon will try to get Elena's forgiveness, but after what he just did, that's not gonna be easy. "This is [Damon's] biggest lesson to learn," Plec says.

"You can love someone with all the power in your soul, but you still have to remember who they are and what they want. In the final episode, Damon needs to seek her forgiveness for what he did and he desperately wants it."

His extra reason? The bite: "'I can't die with you hating me,' that's his point."

Damon can't really die though, right? "Anybody can die!" and "Who needs Ian Somerhalder?" Plec joked, but adds that she's not afraid to make tough choices.

"There will be severe and tragic consequences, and loss of life [will] be extreme over the last several episodes," the shot-caller adds. "It's a vampire show, and in a vampire show, the stakes are high and the death count has to match that."

"If you guys don't believe the consequences aren't life and death, then we're not doing our job. Unfortunately we've set into motion a ritual that needs a lot of sacrificial elements. We hope that the audience trusts our decision as storytellers."

"There will be decisions that are not popular, always."

I love Damon so much hes a part of my life if he gets killed off theres gonna be a huge hole in my chest my heart will be broken and I will be crying for at least a week none stop I won't be able to calm down if he dies I love you damon please Julie plec please I'm begging you don't kill him off it would hurt me to much if he goes.


if they kill damon whats the point in watchin it best vamp in it it be borin wit out him


In The Books They Kill Him Off Towards The End...


I love damon im his biggest fan theres oads of comments about him lol


I am telling u now your show will be ass it will like the other shows that I dont watch and u will lose a lot of fans without Damon your show is ass I am telling u now no joke dude


i love damon.


Ok well I would like to say If Damon Dies I will legit stop watching the show! every single one of my friends are all TEAM DAMON. So if the directors are smart they wont kill him becuase if they do they will probably loose more then half of their fans I mean cmon look at all the comments!!!


There have been rumors that Elena will become pregnant by Damon,if that's true, they should make it happen quick, i think it is kindove boring just waiting to see who Elena picks, and i am not the only one. If they want to keep the show going, they should make some romance happen fast. PS. i vote 4 Delena, allthough i do wonder, if something does click between them, what will they do after that. (Stephen can't pretend to be as calm as Damon when your girlfriend has your brother as her boyfriend)and i am a big fan btw. They r going to keep Caroline and Tyler the same, and matt will just be dull matt.LOL


Damon wont die the producters arent that stupid! they no vry well that damon is one of the most well liked characters on the show and if he dies, the viewing of the show will decrease dramaticly. So, no, damon will not die!


thank u plec,u'v made a gud point,u can luv sum 1 wit al ur power bt u'v 2 remember wat they r nd wat they want nd dat's actually wat damon does nt undstnd coz he's so crazy nd impulsive he jst luv elena bt does nt care abt d ppl she luvs,wat she wants nd dat's nt wat luv means,bt unlike stefan who does tinks carefully,i believe damon is smarter than stefan in his own impulsive way bt stefan is more reasonable nd sensible than him.
