Paul Wesley on The Vampire Diaries Finale: I Didn't Buy It

at . Comments

The Vampire Diaries Season 3 concluded with Elena transforming into a member of the undead.

But that development only went down because Stefan made an unusual choice: swimming to the bottom of the lake to rescue the love of his life, he heeded Elena's underwater advice and first swam Matt to the shore.

Return of Stelena?

Now, in a candid interview, star Paul Wesley actually admits he was initially "confused" by the scene, questioning the motives of his character and the decision he made. Referencing Stefan's saving of Matt, Wesley says:

"I don't buy it. I'll be completely honest. The writers are probably going to get mad at me! I don't buy it, but it is what it is and so we have to live with it."

His main issue with the way everything took place?

"I personally think Stefan would have just went, 'I don't really care what the hell you have to say', and would have grabbed her - but it is a story and frustrating things happen in life and stories."

As for The Vampire Diaries Season 4? Does Wesley just see smooth sailing ahead for Stefan and Elena? Not exactly.

"I don't think it's going to be like, 'I'm picking Stefan and we're going to be happy now," he said. "It's going to be a completely different show."

We'll find out for certain on October 11.

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

You are literally the best person I've ever known. And for me to think I could ever change you was giving me way too much credit and you way not enough… you're the good. And I need a little good in my life.

Damon [to Elena]
