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 am so happy to see how many people feel the same way about Damon.... regardless of it being a "Vampire" show, that needs to have deaths....... the main Characters are what make the show, and keep the viewers coming back....... if they just had random vampires come & go, it wouldn't be the same, and they would definately loose all their viewers.... we want Damon, and Stefan and Elena, if any of those 3 die, the show DIES! The END! Another great show dies off, because they can't manage to keep a good plot going. So Sad! Oh, by the way, I LOVE DAMON! He's definately my favorite!

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

I wanna say thank you for giving me everything I always wanted. A love to consume me, and passion, and adventure. There's nothing more I could ever want than for it to last forever, but it can't. This is the last time I'm gonna see you. This is goodbye, Damon.

Elena [to Damon]
