Vampire Diaries Spoilers: The Turning of Tyler

at . Comments

Starting tonight, The Vampire Diaries enters into the final stretch of 2010. Only two episodes remain this year, and both of which will give plenty of time to Tyler and his transformation into a werewolf.

As producer Julie Plec has already teased, this event will lead to the influx of many more werewolves in Mystic Falls. It will also change Tyler forever.

“We’ll learn a lot about the mythology and the rules of the transformation over the next two episodes before we actually see it,” Plec told The Los Angeles Times this week. “You’ll learn that while it gets a little bit easier the more you do it, the first time is not easy.”

Set to Turn

Plec says the transition will be "life altering" for Tyler, and also have far-reaching consequences for other characters.

“What happens after that is going to be a big part of what happens in Mystic Falls, and how our other characters get involved in Tyler’s story. A lot of secrets start to come out and it becomes very complicated after he turns.”

What other storylines can fans look forward to? The producer offered the following teases to the newspaper:

The evolution of Damon: “We’ve watched Damon’s journey as he struggled with his role as hero and leading man and the knocks that come along with that and the problems that’s given him. His own personal transformation is a big part of this year and the rest of the season.”

The blood diet of Stefan: "For a while, we’re going to see him very functionally manage this consumption because it’s actually a really smart plan.”

The immortality (?) of Klaus: “As we get into the new year, that’s going to be a big question,” says Plec, adding that the story of the Originals and Klaus' arrival will lead to “lots of interesting developments and intriguing characters.”

The return of... someone: Without naming names, Plec said, yes, we'll see a killed-off character again.

Who might it be? Who would you like it to be? Sounds like a topic to be discussed in our Vampire Diaries forum!

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.
