Julie Plec Spoils Next Week’s “All My Children” And Beyond

2 years ago, by

The Vampire Diaries EP, Julie Plec has a spoiler filled preview for next week’s February finale of TVD and beyond. The talented temptress reveals details about Esther’s plan, Damon’s tryst, Matt’s importance and much more.
Esther was full of surprises in last night’s “Dangerous Liaisons”, but is she really planning to eradicate her whole family? Worst.Mom.Ever!!

She’s planning to, that’s for certain, but Plec says, “The fact that this isn’t a done deal by minute 42 of the episode leaves a lot of potential for how it could all go very right or very wrong in the next episode. ” But one thing Plec can say for sure? “Everyone drank [the champagne with Elena's blood]. I can put that to bed now. “


Since Damon choose to act out in a more productive way, aka bedding Rebekah, Plec spoils that Elena will definitely feel the burn.

“Elena is going to be pissed on multiple levels,” Plec says. “The thing with Damon we’ve seen is that when he’s hurt, he lashes out. In a way, this is both the most cruel way he could’ve lashed out, but also shows a peculiar evolution in him as a character because rather than take it out on an innocent human in the middle of the road, he’s striking where it hurts the most [and] very specifically at Elena.”

Fans got to see a lot of humanity in Klaus when he opened up to Caroline. She rebutted his advances well with her wonderful honesty and insight, leaving Klaus wanting more.

“The king of all evil vampires has plucked her from obscurity and said, ‘I bestow upon you my affection and my gifts and my flirtation,’ and our girl who has come so far is like, ‘Talk to the hand, buddy.’ So to see her take that stance against him and in defense of Tyler is a really big deal for her,” Plec says.


Tyler will not return until the spring episodes of The Vampire Diaries. But when the hybrid hottie returns his old anger issues will resurface with a vengeance.

“There’s nothing worse than going away and putting yourself through endless and eternal agony to break a bond to some guy and then when you come back to town you realize he’s been putting the moves on your girl. I can’t imagine that’s going to go over well.”

Bonnie and Abby were noticeably missing from last night’s formal gala. However, Julie also spoiled that they will pay a major role in next week’s episode, “All My Children”, which takes place during a full moon.

“We’ll learn that like most of the heavy-duty witch spells, there needs to be some sort of recurring celestial event to attach to it,” Plec says. “They are going to find themselves enlisted by Esther to help in this spell that would help eliminate Klaus. It’s coming back to the bloodline that originated with Ayanna, and now Bonnie and her mom are the keys to being able to see it all the way through.”

Since Elijah’s debut, he and Elena have had an undeniable connection and complete understanding for one other. Plec reveals the unexplainable chemistry between the two came completely by surprise.

“When we decided there needed to be a big bad evil vampire in the middle of last season that paved the way for the introduction of Klaus, never in a million years would we have said that one day he’ll have this magnificent and lovely friendship with Elena. And yet, that has evolved over the course of a season and a half. Next week is very much rooted in the foundation of this compassion that Elena has for Elijah and her concern in that maybe signing his death sentence she’s made a mistake.”


Lastly, last night’s episode proved that even though Matt hasn’t had much of a storyline in season 3, he can easily get mixed up in the supernatural issues. Matt’s life will continue to be in danger because of his friendships.

“Screen time be damned, I think he is one of the most important characters on the show in what he represents: that guy just trying to get through life, maybe trying to get out of this town one day and have a normal life free of vampires and ghosts and supernatural.”

    Please don’t let the Originals die, they absolutely rock this show! Especially Elijah, Klaus and Rebekah!

    I have to say the love triangle is starting to get on my nerves! The way
    Elena responded to Damon’s confession was way too cruel! I really liked
    Elena as a character, she came across very kind and understanding but
    now she is starting to annoy me! Obviously she still loves Stefan but
    she won’t let go of Damon either. I mean cmon you can’t have both of
    them! And then getting jealous over Damon sleeping with Rebekah, I mean
    hello?? You’ve rejected him over and over again and are not together
    with him, yet he can’t sleep with another girl?? Seriously Elena! Go
    back to Stefan and let Damon be free to find a woman that truely loves
    him and only him!! First Katherine and now you, how much pain must this
    vampire go through?? It’s not fair!

    I am a Delena fan but watching last episode I am starting to believe that Elena doesn’t deserve Damon!

    And regarding next episode: How many times do we need to see Elena getting saved?? It’s starting to get boring!
    Seriously if they kill the Originals off this show will become pretty bad!!

  • roxyyy

    elena jus needs to be with stefan… damon is better off wiv someone else.. looking at the way damon behaves stefan is wayyy better than elena

  • roxyyy

     elena jus needs to be with stefan… damon is better off wiv someone
    else.. looking at the way damon behaves stefan is wayyy better for
    elena

  • Bella

    Seriously it’s starting to feel like season 1 again… Can we just get Delena already, please?? 3 years, and STILL waiting… Although I’m starting to become more of a Damon fan, Elena’s on timeout!

  • Whatever

    Incredibly well said @Karenina. Those are my feelings exactly. FINALLY somebody gets it.

  • Oh You So Are

    i thought i was on delena too, but she is soooo getting on my nerves. can that whiny judgy little girl just take stefan and leave the show?!
    she keeps yanking damons chain without anything in return except more criticism 
    i’m glad he slept with rebekah, let the guy have some fun!

    she seriously trusted ester after a second?! not wondering for a moment there might be ulterior motives? or that it might not be the best idea? I thought she liked elijah? 
    and doesn’t she owe rebekah some kind of explanation. sure rebekah shouldn’t have tried to kill her, but elena did literally stab her in the back, right when they were sort of on the same side

  • A_softosng

    Since Elena wants to call the shots and she really appreciates the fact that Stefan trusted her to make her own decisions, I think that Damon should let them handle it.  Damon’s is interferring in their relationship at this point and should not get involved with trying to save her. That is Stefan girl, Stefan will always be her choice.  Damon can be her friend from a distance.  Damon can come save me. LOL.  Elijah, well… Klaus and Caroline made the show.  If anybody can get through that deep pain of his, it would be Caroline.  Everybody needs love. Tyler is gonna kick his rear but, hey, I am a TVD junkie.

    Question: In episode S3E13: Did Elijah mean that the “doppleganger” was a curse to brothers spelled by their mother, in that she would never be able to make a choice?  He and Klause fought over the Tatia, then over Katherine, and now Elijah wants Elena? 

  • Anna7030

    I don’t think that killing off the Originals would be the death sentence of the show with regard to its entertaining qualities. We were already hooked up before the Originals so I have no doubt the producers and the writing team are able to come up with another set of villains. As far as I’m concerned, I’m already bored by this Originals storyline.The running theme about them  is dysfunctional family A lot of things about them is becoming predictable like Esther being in that coffin and her wanting to eradicate her offspring. The Originals deserve their own spin-off show; there are so many of them that some characters like Alaric, Tyler, Bonnie, the Sheriff have to be AWOL just to allow for the whole originals to parade on our screens. With their volatile tempers, they’re like multiple avatars of Damon i.e. a bunch of loose cannons. Just my opinion and certainly not a personal attack

  • Karenina

    Exactly! That’s the thing with Elena, all her actions are justifiable and her halo never slips! Like compelling Jeremy for the second time and sending him away, I mean what the hell?? She knew how badly he reacted after he found out the first time and still she decided to do this to him again? So it’s that important to her to make her own decisions. Then what about Jeremy’s right to make his own? Her holier-than-thou attidude has risen to a new level!

    And I really miss First season Damon. His love for Elena has unfortunately turned him into a pathetic and controlling fool! I loved him in season 2 with Rose where we got a glimpse into his vulnerable soul and where we saw his human side but in season 3 his care has become quite the nuisance and is not flattering him.

    I’m glad he slept with Rebekah maybe that’ll unleash his bite and spirit again!

  • the originals<333333

    I don’t care what happens!
    I just want Elijah alive and Klaroline to happen!  

  • the originals<333333

    Btw, the only thing that was good with this episode was Klaus, Caroline and Elijah scenes. 

  • lilypad

    haven’t the boys had enough of the doppelgängers?!!  It’s like they keep forgetting there are other girls in the show. whenever a guy shows up, he always falls in love with the doppelgänger! I’m so glad klaus likes caroline, finally something new!! but bonnie doesnt really get much attention with the boys :( someone should start liking her 

    Oh please don’t take the originals off the show!! And if elena only treats damon like that, he should start liking rebekah!! Its not fair. he doesnt really open himself up and when he does he’s just the second choice! I really hope they give kol a storyline, i like his character and it seems like he’s the most mysterious in the original family like why he’s so sadistic. finn had motives when he got out of the coffin and kol just wanted to hurt people. I also want him to fall in love with someone since he finds rebekah weak for liking matt. 

  • Lei286

    We have ANOTHER hiatus?  Didn’t this show just come back? How long do we have to wait this time?

    And I love Matt and so I’m glad Plec does too. That is all.

  • the originals<333333

    Elena was a bitch in this episode because she had CURLY hair! Hehehehe… :P

  • Delena<3

    Dear Karenina. 

    You do have some good points there, but you forget about something. Or rather someone. Damon tried to forget about Elena using Andie (the girl Stefan killed). Andie loved Damon, she really did. But the problem was that Damon didn’t love her back. So it isn’t enough for Damon to find (at least this if what I think) a girl that loves him, he have to love her back. 

    Trough the show Damon has tried different ways to keep his mind of the girl he love. It never works, though. Sleeping with Rebekah was one of his ways to forget about Elena. 

    Damon curse is to always fall in love with a girl that doesn’t love him back (or at least as much as he loves her) and never fall in love with the girls that loves him. 

  • Delena<3

    Jeremy is 16 years old. Do you guys really think he knows what he wants? Maybe he do, but commiting suicide was never a good idea. So Elena sent him away. Even though she didn’t want to. And what do you guys think Rebekah would have done to Jeremy? She wanted to kill Matt just to upset Elena, so what do you guys think she would have done to Jeremy if he was still in town? Hmmmm… It still was a little cruel of Elena to send him away, though. But isn’t it better to know that Jeremy is alive and will soon join the show again then knowing he is dead and gone?

  • Karenina

    You’re right of course he needs a woman that he can fall in love with as well. Why are the writers denying him that?? He’s done so much for Elena and still he can’t have her! I think the writers have made it clear that the endgame will be either Elena/Stefan or Elena with a normal human. Are they planning to let Damon pine for her for the next seasons to come? Is that his destiny? It’s frustrating really!

    I have heard that in the books Damon gets involved with Bonnie, does anybody know if the writers are considering this pairing?

    I am wondering under what circumstances will Jeremy join this show again.. Maybe there’s some connection between him and the council-member-murderer?

    What do you guys think?

    What do you guys think?

  • Delena<3

    They are open for the idea, yes. And the actor that plays Bonnie hopes that there will be a time for the Bamon fans. The reason (one of them at least) they fired L. J. Smith from writing her own books was because there was more Stelena and Bamon fans than only Delena fans. So I have a grudge against Bamon fans, sort off… Because L. J. Smith was going to have more Delena scenes… 

    In norwegian we have saying that is called “pinebenken”. Which is actually a torture device. Anyway we say that you sit on it and wait until better times. (This made so more sense in my head…) So I think we Delena fans have to sit on “pinkebenken” for some more time until Julie Plec decides to surprise us with some Delena time. I honestly believe that she is going to torture us until we don’t believe they ever is going to be together. But if we think about it for a sec; there is way to many Delena fans, so they can’t ignore the fact that so many people is going to stop watching the show if they don’t pull off some more Delena. Well, all of this made so much more sense in my head.  

  • Jilllieee.

    guys, don’t ya all think that stelena is sooooo predictable? 
    And Elena is getting on my nerves as well, first she kisses damon and gives him hope, than when stefan is (sort of) back, she just acts like damon is some kind of trash.

    But still, i am a delena fan.

  • Jilllieee.

    anyway, Damon finally did open up, with saying that he loves her and then she reacts like THAT?
    … *&^%%^

  • maxine

    maybe stefan and bonnie will grow a connection

  • maxine

    and maybe ester will fall inlove with damon

  • A_softsong

    I don’t think that Ester wrote Elijah’s name on the sheet of paper that she burned.  The runic translator alphabet doesn’t match how Elijah’s name would be spelled.  I am a little hopeful now.

  • Anonymous

    Well, i am sure this plan will have some way for them to get out i doubt they started this caroline/klaus thing without it going somewhere. As for delanna or stelena i am not a fan of either to be honest but i am getting tired of how elena pulls both boys in. I wish she would just pick one right now it seems she wants them both. As for what will happen no clue but i am sure there is more then her just killing her children but i have to say i am becoming a fast fan of klaus i really felt sorry for him in the last couple episodes and i could see in his scene with ester he really wanted to trust her. 

  • Mashii90

    I’m sooooooo in love with Klaroline .. I kinda hope they end up together and that Klaus doesn’t die ! ;) 
    He’ll probably become a good guy because of Caroline and then he won’t have to die, right ? .. 

    Well, I’m hopeful :D

  • Clara

    Stelena = true love. 

  • Ifluvstelena4ever

    Elena loves Stefan. It’s just the way it is.
    What did Damon expect? That he was gonna betray his brother and get the girl that easily?
    Come on.
    Finally, some Bonnie spoilers.

  • damon17

    i rellay am glad that damon slept with rebekah considering the way elena has treated him. She is really starting to annoy me now and no longer think that she deserves damon!!! why don’t she go back with stefan like she obviously want to!!! damon deserves to be in love with someone who actually loves him back!!!

  • Kasie_z24

    This is what I think will happen….Everyone is going to find out that Elena is linked to the originals and if they die she will die to because her blood is tied in with the plan to kill the family.  Then everyone will come to her aid and team up with the originals to kill their mother or put a stop to the death of the originals…..my opinion, they will not die.  The writers have expressed an interest in allowing caroline and klaus relationship to blossom, but will take time – so the death of the family will not occure.  Plan will go wrong…like it always does.  Love the show though lol

  • Kis (Denmark)

    Elena was really a bitch to Damon this episode. Rebekka, there is really something hot sleeping with the enemy and a strong girl too, wild sex. She is like Kathrine the oppusite of Elena. They are stronger and more wild, thats got to hurt Elena. It is only a win situation for Damon because Elena learns she cant treat him like that. He will try to move on now, and hopefully Elena will start to get warm!  Yes I am Delena fan. ;-)   

  • LongliveVampireDiaries

    ikr!!!
    i like damon but stefan and elena belong together!!!!!!
    the show is awesome!
    #1 fan

  • Kis

    Rebekha´s dress is gorgeous

  • Kis (Denmark)

    Damon has tried to control Elena for a long time when she makes decisions that puts her in danger. He just love her to much to take any risks with her. I don´t think that makes him a fool. I like Damon in season 3. Specially when he gets mad like in this episode. Kol was offending Damon in the beginning and normally Damon takes no crap from anybody, he still don`t. Snapping a originals neck thats pretty tough. In that way Damon is spontaneous and take risks. This shows us again that the originals might bee too strong, but they can be taken by surprise. 
    Kol is a good looking guy, I like to see more of Damon and Kol playing who´s the smartest and most tough guy. His brothers did´t do anything because he had a buisy day also offending Klaus, Rebekah and their mothers rules of no violence. And then Damon enjoyed his sister in the end! I think Kol will be a little mad at Damon! 

  • Nichole808

    I am looking forward to seeing what happens between Caroline and Klaus. I really enjoyed those two  in the last episode.  

  • guest

    I think this is the only season where the protagonist only dates one guy… it is getting boring. Not even in Buffy she is starts dating other guys…Elena and Stefan only and forever is getting old…
    I am surprised that the writers are sticking to this especially since they wrote Dawson’s Creek where Joey started dating Jack in season 2….. 
    Have Elena date anybody else but Stefan….Damon, Elijia or Matt…
