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

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
