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: 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.
