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:

Damon and Elena Photo

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."

lol smart writers.. everyone knows they won't really kill Damon. If he dies, and that is a big if, they would pull a Buffy (reviving him). The whole show is about 2 brothers and the girl they both love. But making it look like Damon is going to die ensures that everyone is going to watch next season. I'll say it again... Smart writers!

Damon won't die. The writers are smart enough to know that they will lose the show if they kill him off. They are trying to make us sweat it out though.

If Damon dies, it just won't be the same and I don't think I'd watch it anymore. Something would always be missing for me.

Damon wont die. he makes the show. imagine one episode without any damon. it would suck. now imagine the show from now on without damon. unimaginable. if damon ended up dying from this werewolf bite and didnt come back, i guarantee that at least 50% of viewers wouldnt tune in. the show would be cancelled. and no one wants that. :)

This episode will truly bring out the shocking, extreme and surprising events lurking in Mystic Falls. Damon is in trouble from a werewolf bite and it's nice to have Stefan help him but if he dies, what will Stefan do without him? The Delena fans and my sister will grow shocked out if Damon is truly dead. What will be mostly shocking is if Elena will come back as a vampire or if she will be truly dead. If Jenna becomes a vampire, what will Elena's friends think of this? No one ever knows a werewolf bite can be cured because when Jewls told Damon to steak Rose to cure her, she never came back. When this season ends, Mystic Falls will never be the same. I'm growing more obsessed to see what else will happen for the season finale and the arrival for the 3rd season. XD =) =O

Please please please dont kill Damon off. Where will I get my Ian Somerhalder fix then? Besides as someone else has mentioned above it would be like Twilight without Jacob or harry potter without Ron. Just basically NOT right!!!

I know that the TV series hasn't followed the book word for word but the is A LOT of similarities if you look out for them. 1stly in the book, Elena becomes a vampire then dies at the hands of Kathrine. i don't think that'll happen now though because that happened before Klaus came about. but Elena died as a vampire by sunlight, which we would all assume that like a werewolf bite, there is NO coming back.... but she does, which is what i think they are going to do with Damon. they may kill him and keep him in flash backs and Bonnies visions for a couple episodes and then resurrect him... just a thought.... and personally i couldn't care less about Jenna, but they should have taken Jeremy instead (pain in my ass)

Here is a possible scenario. They discover that wolf's bane cures or causes the affects of the werewolf bite to go dormant. Who knows what the brain children at CWTV will come up with?

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

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
