    I came across this article by Entertainment Tonight where they discussed last week’s episode with Paul and discussed the finale along with Nina’s return.

    Here comes the (vampire) bride!

    In tonight’s penultimate episode of The Vampire Diaires, Stefan and Caroline are tying the knot — and unraveling some Mystic Falls trouble along the way.

    Earlier this week, ET caught up with star Paul Wesley to get the behind-the-scenes scoop on tonight’s epically romantic wedding and inside details on what’s ahead when Nina Dobrev returns next week for The Vampire Diaries’ series finale.

    Wesley, who jokes that Stefan has seen and done it all over these last eight seasons, (I’ve died 17 times and killed 18,000 people, and I’m still the hero!”) confesses that a wedding was still on his TVD bucket list.

    “It’s funny because you know I had heard about this ‘June wedding’ for the first time at Comic Con. I had no idea what everyone was talking about and I still kind of don’t really know what it’s about,” Wesley admits with a laugh to a group of reporters.

    True TVD fans remember that in the very first episode of the series, Caroline gushes to Bonnie about all of the information she has already gathered on the attractive, yet mysterious new student Stefan Salvatorre.

    “We’re planning a June wedding,” she breezily adds.

    The actor continues, “So when they first told me that we were going to have a June wedding, I was like, ‘Oh, cool. We’re paying homage to the fans,’ But yeah it was kind of amazing.”

    Wesley reveals that he knew that from the moment that the Vampire Diaries writers “dangled that carrot” with the news of a Steroline proposal, that a wedding was inevitable. “I know how this show works in the sense that if we hadn’t gotten married, I thought that’d be a real twist,” he says. “And [Vampire Dairies creator] Julie [Plec] is way too nice of a person. You know, she wouldn’t do that.”

    “Stefan and Elena were such the pair for so many years and I never in a million years thoughts Caroline and Stefan would end up being that kind of — I don’t want to say true love because I think true love can exist in many forms — but I never knew that they would be equally as powerful as a couple. So it was equally surprising to me,” he explains.

    Speaking of Elena, fans were overjoyed to learn that former TVD leading lady Nina Dobrev will officially be returning in the drama’s series finale to reprise her roles as both Elena Gilbert and Katherine Pierce.

    “I think it would be very strange to not have Nina come back for the finale,” he shares. “It’s like the whole story is about two brothers essentially — I mean the crux of it — is two brothers fighting over a girl. I mean, there’s a zillion other storylines. But, I felt like it would have been a real shame for the fans and for the show to not sort of wrap that up to a degree.”

    Wesley confirms that Dobrev’s return in the final episode will be a very “satisfying” ending for audiences and that he even got a little choked up when reading the very last script.

    “I read the script on the plane,” he recalls. “It’s just a culmination of so many emotions. You’re like, ‘OK, this is the last script I’m ever going to read for this show.’ I got a bit teary-eyed and I’m kind of a cold-hearted bastard,” he confesses. “So I took a selfie with just a bit of red eyes, and I sent it to Julie and Kevin [Williamson]. I was like, ‘Good work, guys.'”

    The Vampire Diaries airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

    Paul spills that a main character will be dying in tomorrow night’s series finale!

    We’d heard rumblings that someone will die in the Vampire Diaries series finale… and it sounds like it’s going to be a real heartbreaker.

    Paul Wesley – who plays Stefan – told press including Digital Spy that it’s “definitely a main character” who bites the bullet in Friday’s episode.

    “I don’t want to react, because I feel like this is a test and you’re going to deduce who it is,” he joked. “I’m going to do my poker face!”

    But while fans might be left crying, ‘Why??’, Wesley insisted that “someone needed to die” in the show’s last ever episode.

    “If someone had not died, I would have been disappointed,” he admitted.

    Wesley also revealed that just reading the script for the finale made him well up… could this killing of a central character be what set him off?

    He said: “I got a bit teary-eyed… and it was funny, [because] I’m a cold-hearted bastard!”

    Who could it be? Stefan himself? Or Damon? Caroline? Bonnie?

    So long as it’s not Elena who dies – Nina Dobrev is returning for the finale, but killing her off so soon after waking from a magic coma just seems cruel…

    Whatever happens, Ian Somerhalder (who plays Damon) has promised that the Vampire Diaries finale will be a belter – or at least better than Lost’s…

    The Vampire Diaries wraps up for good this Friday at 8/7c on The CW. The series returns to ITV2 in the UK next Tuesday (March 14) at 11.55pm.

    Entertainment Weekly keeps giving us lots of fun info on the ending of the show!

    With only two episodes left, The Vampire Diaries is nearing its end. But considering that we’re currently living in the age of reboots and revivals, is any show ever really dead?

    There’s no predicting whether TVD could live on in the future, but for stars Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder, it sounds like the show’s series finale will serve as their goodbye to Mystic Falls, the Salvatore brothers, and all the many joys of playing vampires. “I think I’m closing the chapter,” Wesley said after a press screening of the penultimate hour.

    Somerhalder quickly added, “In 10 years I’m going to be living probably on a ranch in Wyoming and you’ll never hear from me again.”

    But in all seriousness, Somerhalder said, “I think it’s good to close this chapter. There’s something beautiful about closure.”

    Plus, Somerhalder was quick to bring up the fact that, thanks to Netflix, “television never dies.” Even to this day, Somerhalder claims new fans come up to him in airports to talk about how they’re just discovering the allure of Damon Salvatore. “It’s never going to die,” Somerhalder said of the show. “We’re going to continue to be able to watch it and I think that’s a really interesting new thing about this modern digital world.”

    Wesley joked, “It’d be funny if we did a reboot [where] we’re all old as s—.”

    And you know what? We’d watch it.

    Only two more episodes! So sad!

    Kevin Williamson & Julie Plec spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the Series Finale title. I love this line from season one!

    “We met, and we talked, and it was epic, but then the sun came up and reality set in.”

    When Elena Gilbert first said those words to Stefan Salvatore in the second episode of The Vampire Diaries, she was finding a reason why they couldn’t be together. Their lives were just too complicated. But by the end of the hour, Stefan would remind her of just how epic their connection was, repeating those words before kissing her for the first time … even after reality set in.

    However, what was happening onscreen wasn’t the only thing that was “epic” about that moment. Co-creator Kevin Williamson will never forget reading that interaction and what it meant for the show. “[Co-creator] Julie [Plec] wrote that beautiful monologue, and I remember reading it for the first time and just crying,” Williamson tells EW. “And then Stefan came back and said it to her again, and I remember tearing up. I thought we were onto something special. When you shoot a pilot, you never know if anything is going to work. But it’s those second and third episodes where it starts to come together. And that’s when you know if the show has legs.”

    And even more than signaling something special for Williamson, that moment introduced a theme that the show would carry all the way through to its series finale: It has to be epic. “I did a lot of the early writing and Kevin did a lot of the re-writing,” Plec says. “We were trying to figure out the show as we went and I wrote the scene where Elena says, ‘We met, and we talked, and it was epic, but then the sun came up and reality set in.’ And I remember Kevin circling it on his script and giving it a triple check. A triple check from Kevin Williamson is, ‘I love this line.’”

    So it was no surprise when the line — or at least the sentiment — came back in episode 8. Using her sage vampire wisdom, Stefan’s best friend Lexi convinced Elena to give Stefan a chance by explaining that, “When it’s real, you can’t walk away.” And when Stefan thanked his bestie for helping him out, she simply said, “I was feeling epic,” a line that lives on years later and is now the official title of the Vampire Diaries series finale.

    “During the first season of this show, when Julie and I were not sleeping and we were just writing non-stop and were completely out of our minds, we wrote the episode where Lexi pulled a solid for Stefan in the bar and pumped up Stefan in Elena’s eyes, and she’s like, ‘I was feeling epic.’ That line became Julie’s favorite line of the entire show,” Williamson says. “From the very very beginning, we kept saying in the writers’ room: ‘It has to be epic. We want an epic moment.’ This whole show has always been about epic moments and that was the line.”

    So when it came time to end the show, there was really only one type of finale that Plec and Williamson wanted to write: An epic one. “It had to be epic,” Williamson says. “What better title than the callback of what was one of our favorite lines in the whole show? Epic has been our mantra from day one.”

    The Vampire Diaries airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
