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

Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.

Damon
