The Vampire Diaries Executive Producer Julie Plec sat down yesterday at The CW network to answer fan questions about tonight’s episode, “The End of The Affair” airing at 8/7c:
How far will the “originals” storyline extend this season?
Definitely the whole way! It ties in from many places, and there are many characters that will be introduced along the way. We will meet an “original” mother in the past, and see Elijah again most likely. The show is about bloodlines, and the originals are critical to that theme.
What is the deal with Damon and Elena?
So far there has been no admission of chemistry from Elena towards Damon. There’s certainly an elephant in the room whenever they are together. In upcoming episodes, this will be addressed!
When will we see Bonnie again?
Bonnie returns next week from a summer with the normal side of her family. She comes back eager to find out what she’s been missing.
How will the event with Caroline’s father affect her character?
Before this, Caroline’s strength came from her father, but now she realizes that her mother is there for her as well. She will certainly channel the experience and become wiser in response.
What is going on with the ghosts ?
There is definitely an agenda that goes beyond making amends with the living. When Bonnie returns, there will be tension between her and Jeremy around the issue. The emotional consequences of bringing him back to life will be illuminated through his interactions with Vicky and Anna.
Will there be any big deaths in the near future?
This show is known for that, but you know I can’t reveal anything!
