The Vampire Diaries: About More Than Just Vampires!

at . Comments

Kevin Williamson had a few important messages for audiences members in attendance at The Vampire Diaries panel discussion last week at Comic-Con.

First, the show's executive producer - likely best known for having created Dawson's Creek - said this new series is right up his writing alley.

"Every single character [in the book] is dealing with death, loss and life - which is perfect for me, because everything I write about is pretty much death and loss and hopelessness," Williamson told the crowd.

Moreover, he revealed a pair of huge spoilers for the first season:

  1. "The town of Mystic Falls has a lot of things that go bump in the night," he said, implying that blood suckers aren't the only creatures alive in the woods.
  2. Elena will learn Stefan's true identity within the show's first three or four episodes.

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: 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.
