E!Online spoke with Julie Plec on tomorrow’s season finale of The Vampire Diaries …
As we go on, we remember all the times we had together…
Four vampires, one witch-ghost and one human-as-apple-pie quarterback graduating from high school? Only on The Vampire Diaries! The CW hit’s beloved characters are all set to receive their diplomas and toss their graduation caps up in the air…all while dealing with some serious supernatural craziness going down in the season-four finale on Thursday night. You know, just another typical day in Mystic Falls.
We chatted with executive producer Julie Plec about the season four finale, including Bonnie’s (Kat Graham) “bittersweet sacrifice,” Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Caroline’s (Candice Accola) future now that he’s off to headline The Originals spin-off and Elena and Katherine’s Dynasty-style fight that was years in the making! Plus, will Elena and Damon’s (Ian Somerhalder) sire-bond come back into play when she makes her choice between the brothers?
Elena’s Choice, Take Two: While season three’s finale also featured Elena making a choice between the Salvatore brothers, Plec previews that our heroine isn’t the same human girl who chose Stefan (Paul Wesley) just before dying and coming back as a vamp. “I think that in last year’s finale it was very clear that Elena was struggling with feelings for both brothers and needed to make a decision about what she wanted her life to be and who she wanted to share that life with,” she explains. “This year, she’s had a very traumatic roller coaster of life experience and it’s changed her irrevocably—and at the center of it all was the diehard belief that she loved Damon, that she loved him more than she’d ever loved anyone.
She continues, “Her struggle has been with the realization of the sire bond that she couldn’t even trust those feelings to be true. So it’s more about answering the truth of those feelings and as a result does that mean her distance from Stefan was also not real and not true? She handles that realization pretty well and it’s a great, great, great scene.”
