The Vampire Diaries Return Scoop: Evil Klaus, Dark Elena and More!

by at . Comments

With The Vampire Diaries set to return with new episodes on January 5, fans have a number of questions they hope to have answered.

Almost each one is based on the state of mind that each character will be in when we meet him/her again in a week. Can Elena and Damon accept that Stefan will never be the man they previously knew? How will Klaus react to the abduction of his relatives?

In an interview with TV Guide, producer Julie Plec offered a few teases/updates regarding where various key players stand and what decisions they will face moving forward. Excerpts are below...

  • Nina Dobrev Promo Picture
  • Joseph Morgan Promo Pic
  • Paul Wesley Promotional Photo

STEFAN WILL BE "acting from a place of [aggression] and not completely rational," Plec said, adding that "revenge" toward Klaus will be his "priority."

ELENA WILL CONSIDER Damon as a love interest, as the tension that has been building between her and this Salvatore sibling may "come out and play" with Stefan out of the picture.

"The question of 'Does Elena love Damon [and] has she been fully falling for him all along?' is going to be very much a part of the season," Plec says.

But Elena will also question what it might take to protect those she loves. Might she need to become more like her doppelgänger? Look for this conflicted young lady to look deep within herself and realize that "sometimes a dark choice needs to be made, a violent act needs to be enacted."

KLAUS WILL GROW more vulnerable, Plec teases, but certainly won't become warm and/or cuddly, as the character becomes "madder and madder and more violent and more evil" as the season progresses.

We. Cannot. Wait.

@Bpurplehewitt:Stefan can't let damon die first reason why he forced damon to turned coz he needed his brother and doesn't want to spend an eternity without him.Also stefan asked klaus to make him a deal coz he knew klaus will never give him the cure without something in return that's why he said "the witches said u had a cure,make me a deal,just give me the cure and i'll do what ever you want" and there is no anyother cure if he didn't accept klaus deal,klaus will suspect something since he thinks elena is dead and damon is the only person stefan have.I don't know the exact reason why stefan want revenge on klaus but we'll find out soon.

Stefanelena, I know that but to me it dosent make sense that stephan wants revenge cause 1. He had a choice( to let damon die, or make a different deal with klaus, or keep looking for a new cure) but klaus didnt hold a gun to head or anything and klaus didnt kill damon or elena( techinally she diedbut she come back) especially to get stephan to do his bidding or be his friend.

Stefelena

@Brandy:stefan becomes klaus puppet so that he would save damon's life.They had a deal:stefan will do what ever klaus wants and klaus will save damon's life,that's the deal.Also stefan wants revenge coz he think klaus took everything from him.

I can't wait till the show returns it looks great and I think it will be interesting seeing a darker Elena I don't know how they will do it and I don't really know what they'll make her do sense she's still human and she can't get totally dark like Katherine.

I agree with some of the comments I have seen. Julie gives information in these interviews sometimes that just doesn't make sense. What happend to Forwood and their Romeo and Juliet storyline. Elena getting dark... Interested in seeing how this goes unless she truely becomes the vampire slayer this doesn't make sense. We know that DE are probably going to get their moment in the sun... no problem but let's not continue to campaign like everyone has to like and believe that this pairing is epic. I do believe that a portion of their on screen chemistry comes from the real life couple and not perse the character as I forget the last time Elena smiled or was happy. Becks is coming back with revenge on her brain and Stefan is on the same kick too....I m sure Stefan's actions are all apart of Katherines master plan. All in all this show is one of my gulity pleasures so I will tune in.

Elena is gonna get darker...how? By going to a tanning salon? JP first says Klaus is getting more vulnerable and then she says he's gonna be more evil...and when I thought she can't get any worse she goes and contradicts herself in one sentence. And she's getting paid to write a show? Oh dear lord, have mercy!

I mean, if one hundredth of the things that happened to her happened to me...I would be cowering in the Lockwood dungeon having a psychotic break. But no, Elena gets dumped/secretly protected by her boyfriend......and she gets dark.....WOW.Forgive me if i don't seen too excited. I'm even more than usually disgusted by the DE reaction that i'm getting from the fangirl express. After all that Stef has done for both Elena and Damon, they would still love to see him clear on the other side of the world suffering alone so that they can have their fav rapist and Mrs Carboard together.....EPIC ISN'T IT? Especially since Stefan has to be GONE for DE to happen. I love TVD but its getting more and more erratic and LAME!!!

I vote that they stop releasing teasers because every word from Plec's mouth just makes me not look forward to the show coming back. I keep thinking "can it get any worse" but i always stand corrected. Dark Elena, really....REALLY? How dark can the sun get? I just don't see them magically turning her into a super interestingly dark being with issues. Not that she doesn't have issues (we all know Elena is a nutcase), but look at where the character could have evolved to if she had been given the opportunity to "decay" over time. There have been so many instances over the last year in TVD time where her world has turned inside out and you would never know it looking at the expression on her face. Nina is an excellent actress, she's just been given bad material to work with in the case of "Elena".
