Julie Plec Previews Future of The Vampire Diaries

at . Comments

When The Vampires Diaries concluded its November 19 episode, Damon was thwarted, Stefan was heartbroken and Elena was stalked by a shadowy figure.

What will happen next to each of these character? Fans will have until January 14 to debate that question in our Vampire Diaries forum, as The CW won't air new episodes until that date.

Fortunately, in a recent interview, producer Julie Plec gave TV Guide Magazine a few hints of what's to come. Warning, a few show spoilers are ahead...

On the next new episode: Our first episode back is a very Damon and Elena-centric story. The two of them go off on a little adventure and bond in a way she didn’t think they were capable of... Also, Gina Torres guest stars as a witch that Damon goes to visit.

On a likely love triangle: As we go through the rest of the season, [Damon is] going to get to know Elena better and better. And can Elena and Stefan’s relationship survive her learning the truth about Katherine? Damon never lied to her and didn’t’ have sex with her. At least not yet.

(TV Fanatic note: WHOA!!!)

On the mystery vampire: Who he is and what he wants is our next big step. We’ll also learn whether the tomb can be happened and what would happen if he does.

Among other topics Plec teased and previewed:

  • Alaric will continue to act as a father figure for Jeremy;
  • Bonnie will become "very powerful;"
  • Viewers will eventually discover who turned Logan into a vampire.

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.


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.
