We never really had any doubt, but all Vampire Diaries fans can breathe an official sigh of relief now: Rebekah is not dead.
The fall finale, of course, concluded with Elena literally stabbing this Original in the back, but producer Julie Plec tell TV Guide viewers have not seen the last of Claire Holt. Not by a long shot. Errr, stab.
"The fact that Elena killed Rebekah is going to come back to bite her in the butt," Plec says. "I'm not going to say when she makes her reappearance, but certainly her being undaggered is not in Elena's best interest."
In other recent scoop unearthed by Plec, it doesn't look like the future is very bright for Caroline and Tyler. Indeed, Forwood will be moving backward when the show returns on January 5.
