This week the CW's number one drama returns to our screens to begin it's end of season run with "Heart of Darkness". EP Julie Plec spoiled to EOnline about what she's deemed 'Four episodes of choice'. Plec also teased Alaric's fate, while Candice Accola promised that season 3 will end with a 'bang'.
"Four episodes of the choice! Stefan and Elena and Damon and Elena fans can each look forward to an exploration over the next four episodes of where Elena stands with each of these brothers and where their relationship, both as a love triangle and as people who have been through a lot together, all stand," Plec explains. "There's a lot of romantic moments coming up on both sides and there's some heartbreak coming up on both sides. I hope what people see when all is said and done is we're really been trying to let Elena, as Stefan so kindly encourages her, to figure out where she is in her life—who she is and what she wants and who she wants—to let her honestly and truthfully make that decision for herself."
"My hope is that Matt Davis gets everything he wants in the form of this new show, but also that we get everything we want and he wants, which is an eternity of Alaric in our world." Plec goes on to spoil about this week's super-dark episode where Ric and his serial killin' alter ego battle it out. "He's got a lot of good stuff coming up and he's doing it really well."
Even though the lovely Candice Accola wouldn't reveal Caroline's fate, she did have this spoilery tease to share about the May 10th season finale, "The Departed".
"[Filming] ended with a very big bang so I think all of the viewer should be very excited for the finale this year."
