The Vampire Diaries Scoop: Delena, Jeremy and More!

at . Comments

At the ATX Television Festival earlier this month, Julie Plec took the stage for a Q&A with fans offered up some serious Vampire Diaries Season 5 scoop.

What does the future hold for Elena and Damon? How will Jeremy possibly explain his revival? What villain is out there lurking, unbeknownst to our favorite Mystic Falls residents?

Plec offered up the following teases in response to these inquires and more:

  • Delena really will begin a “new relationship,” and “try to make it work.” But, as you might guess, it won't go smoothly because there's a “villain in their midst they don’t know is a villain at the beginning.” We're looking at you, Silas/Fake Stefan!
  • Yes, Hayley is pregnant with Klaus' baby. But, unlike Damon and Elena, these two will NOT be making a go of it on The Originals: “Hayley is, by no means, the Cinderella in the Klaus love story. Hayley is a girl who’s pretty tough, fiery, independent … a survivor in her own right who got drunk, had sex and got knocked up. She’s going to have her own journey. She’s not really meant to be a threat to Klaus’ love life.”
  • Silas and his story are not going anywhere: “[It's] a  pretty cool mythology that will carry on in terms of Silas, and the mystery of his past — 1,000 or 2,000 years ago.”
  • Class itself may be "boring," Plec says, but Whitemore College will play a key role: “We always knew that Grams was a professor who taught the occults and that Aunt Jenna was off getting her master’s degree. So we set up Whitmore knowing that we’d be going to college in year five.”
  • And finally Jeremy is alive again. Hooray! But how exactly will he explain this to his friends? Plec has the same question: “What the hell cover story is that going to be? How’s he going to explain that? He had a memorial service! There were flyers!”

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.
