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."

If they kill Damon off I will no longer watch this show. I love the series but Damon is the reason so much of it is great. He's the counterpart to Stefan. If he dies the show will never be as good.

Avatar

Please don' kill Damon! you will most likely loose half if not more of your viewers and i will be one of them. As much as i love this show and look forward to it every week there will be no point in watching if Damon isn't there. Don't get me wrong Stephen is hot but Damon is hot and edgy, it makes him way more fun to watch and "want" ;. so please don't kill him :(.

Avatar

PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! DON'T LET DAMON DIE I LOVE HIM HES THE ONLY REASON WHY I WATCH THIS SHOW. IF HE DIDN'T HAVE GREAT LOOKS AND A FUNNY PERSONALITY I THINK I WOULDN'T BE WATCHING THIS SHOW AT ALL!! HES THE ONE THAT MAKES THE SHOW MORE FASCINATING WITH ALL HIS WRONG DECISIONS. ELENA SHOULD TOTALLY FALL FOR HIM IN THIS SEASON OR THE NEXT THEY WOULD MAKE A GREAT COUPLE.

PLEASSSEEEEE DONT KILL DAMON! its going to break my heart! ;'(

I don't even care if Elena and Damon ends up together. If there's no chance of delena I'll still watch the shoe because Damon is such a fun character but if they'll kill Damon I'm not gonna watch it anymore. Vampire diaries without Damon is boring. The 3 main characters should remain alive.

I dont think when Plec said it was the end of the journey meaning he was going to die but the journey he has been taking all year. maybe at the end of the season Damon will finally come to terms with who he was and who he has become that he's not just a bad vampire but that there is good in him

Avatar

If Damon dies, I'm pretty sure I'm done. Damon dieing would mean tragic viewer loss. She may not be afraid to make the "tough choices", but neither are the viewers. Ultimately, I would like to see Damon with Elena. With or without that content, the show needs him.

i love this show and will probably stop watching it if Damon dies.. He's my favorite characetr and reall ythe only reason i watch the show.. To be honest the cast is great but without Damon they'd be boring..Most of the parts involving stefan and elena are a bit boring though i still like them..i personally don't like the idea of elana and damon..i like bonnie and Damon,,, I really hope Damon doesn't die since he's the only reason i even turned on the show..Without him the show is a bit too much like Twilight
