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.

i personaly think that elena and damon should be a couple because every girl needs some bad boy in their life n elena totally needs the damon bad boy in her life!!!!!!!!


I am a huge STELENA fan. But remember when somebody becomes a vampire, compulsion wares off. She'll remember that she met Damon FIRST, and how he said he loved her. She might choose Damon...or be pissed off that he compelled her and stay with Stefan. Praying for number 2... Oh, and quick question! Whose blood did meredith inject into Elena to become a vampire? Damon?


I personally think the battle between Stefan and Damon will go on now that Elena is a vampire because she told Damon she chooses Stefan because she met him first. But Damon's flashback proves she actually met Damon first, but he compelled her so she wouldn't remember. But I think that now that she's vampire, she might remember that after all, confusing her about her feelings again.

Even though Elena will become a vampire in the next season,I still hope that she'll stay with Stefan especially when trouble happens. I can't wait for season 4. =]


QueenBee - Totally agree. I'm sorry but don't vampires have super strength? Are you telling me he didn't have the strength to grab both of them? Or at least free Elena so she could swim on her own?
I feel that was a big 'fail' on the writers part.


I didn't buy it either. Of course, Stefan wouldn't have done that nonsense.


The originals had 7 children its true. One died in the Old World (Europe) and an unnamed brother died from a werewolf bite in front of Klaus in the New World (America) which is why Michael hated him (plus the fact of Klaus' mother's affair.) So there is no mysterious extra child. The seven children are the one who died in Europe, the one who died in America, Elijah, Kole, Finnigan, Rebekkah and Niklaus.


remember when rebecca told the story of their family elena asked the same thing one died in the old world which is why they moved then the other died in the new world the one that we say happen which is why she wanted to turn her children


Just throwing it out there.. but we all know that Elena was turned into a vampire with Damons blood but no one knows for sure where Damon and Stefans bloodline is... now i know Klaus says it was him but to be honest i dont think it is bc they would never be able to kill him. I recall the episode where Elijah said his mother had 7 children, well we know a young brother died in that flashback episode leaving Klaus, Elijah, finn, Rebecca and Cole, im only couting six anyone else? So im pretty sure there is another original vampire!!

Fruit salad

And to think that if they wanted to drag out the triangle some more in a way that's not so lame, they could have made Stefan decide to save her instead. Cue survivor's guilt, she feels that if Stefan could do something like that to her(you saved my life! How horrible!), then he might not be who she thought he was. Eventually she starts dating Damon for some reason and the Delena fans get what they want. Then, after a while, she realizes that she'll never love Damon the way she loved Stefan, so she breaks it up with him and runs off to college(assuming that she graduated) and gets herself a nice, human boyfriend. Happily ever after. Life in MF goes on without her, but then everyone realizes that with no doppelganger to threaten/save, life is dull, so all the awesome people gtfo and have a spinoff.
