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. "
"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.
"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."
