Vampire Diaries Q&A: Caroline Dries on The Doppleganger Prophecy, The Foreboding Presence of Markos

at . Comments

With The Vampire Diaries Season 5 on hiatus - prior to its return on April 17 and its subsequent run of consecutive episodes until the May 15 finale - we chatted up executive producer Caroline Dries at Paleyfest late last month.

What can viewers expect from Markos, who we saw emerge from The Other Side at the conclusion of The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 17?

What about the Travelers in general? How does their agenda tie in to the Doppleganger prophecy from earlier this season?

And, come on, are we gonna see Jeremy in a tanktop any time soon or what?!?

In anticipation of The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 18, we grilled Dries on these and other series-related topics. Watch the exclusive Q&A now:

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
