The Vampire Diaries Spoilers: Welcome to Whitmore

at . Comments

With The Originals on tap for this fall on The CW, taking away three key players from The Vampire Diaries universe, fans of the latter drama are understandably wondering:

What now?!? How will Julie Plec and company make up for the losses of Klaus, Claire and Elijah on The Vampire Diaries Season 5?

It's a question Plec has pondered and it's one that was answered in part by the title of the Season 4 finale: "Graduation."

Mystic Falls Graduation Day

“We’re definitely going to be entering an entire new world at Whitmore College, so we’ll get to meet new friends and new enemies,” Plec tells TV Line. “There’ll be a lot of new people entering our universe that we’ll get to know well - and then also maybe some new romantic interests for some of our characters.”

Hmmm... to whom might Plec be referring? Damon and Elena are together. Bonnie is a ghost. Stefan is locked in a submerged safe. Caroline will be welcoming home Tyler. But Matt will be left alone when Rebekah ditches him for New Orleans and perhaps Jeremy will desire a girlfriend he can actually touch.

We have until October to debate the possibilities. Are you excited for The Vampire Diaries: The College Years, TVD Fanatics?

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

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
