Julie Plec Spoils “The New Deal”: Deeper, Hotter Delena & A Klaus/Stefan Pissing Match

The long holiday hiatus is almost over for The Vampire Diaries, but to help with your withdrawals I some spoilery scoop direct from EP Julie Plec in Atlanta. The cast and crew are busy filming episode 14 as I type and the always fabulous Plec had plenty to dish about TVD’s return January 5th. The mid-season finale left us with Elena letting Stefan go (for real), while comforting Damon, who’s having trouble coping with the lose of his brother.

“When we come back from hiatus, Damon is doing what Damon does best when someone pisses him off: He’s day-drinking,” Julie laughs. “He’s seen neither hide nor hair of Stefan since he ruined their plan and got his freedom from Klaus~Joseph Morgan, and Damon and Elena are kind of spiraling a little bit. They don’t know where he is or why he betrayed them. All they know is that he has completely screwed them over and they have to move on. When we come back in Episode 10, Elena and Damon are finding themselves in these moments where the romantic tension is a little bit deeper and the physical tension is a little bit hotter,” Julie teases. “They have to work together against Klaus, so they keep finding themselves in these moments that they’re now both free to act on, without guilt.” However, “Eventually, somebody is going to found out that Stefan saved Damon’s life, and Damon and Elena are going to have that to contend with,” Julie says. “They’re going to have some choices to make.”

Plec also spoiled about fans haven’t seen the worst of Stefan or Klaus.

“We have not seen the worst of Klaus. We also have not seen the worst of Stefan taking on Klaus,” Julie tells us. “One of the fun things we’re doing when we come back in January is taking the pissing contest — I guess that’s the best term for it — between Stefan and Klaus to a whole other level. Watching these powerful characters and these powerful actors go head-to-head is going to be awesome.” Julie goes on to reveal, “There’s a moment where Damon’s at a cocktail party and sees Mayor Lockwood chatting with Klaus, and Damon’s like ‘What the hell are you doing? He’s ruined your son’s life, he’s ruined all of our lives,’” Julie says. “[Mayor Lockwood] says, ‘Klaus has offered to leave me, my family, and this town alone if you can get your brother to behave.’ So we start to see this manipulation that Klaus has in the town of Mystic Falls, and now that Stefan’s pushing back, Klaus is able to step forward and say, ‘Hey, I’m not here to cause a problem! Stefan Salvatore is the problem.’”

    Does this means that Damon’s big ultimatum for Elena is near? They spoiled it that Damon will come to a decision to give Elena a big ultimatum whether she wants him or not.

    I think Elena ultimately works better with Stefan…but I’m not what you call a “shipper” for any couple so some Damon/Elena for a while is fine with me. But in my opinion, I think Damon should get a hot vamp girlfriend…one who DIDN’T fall for Stefan first….but whatev. I actually kind of liked him with Andie because she actually seemed to genuinely care for Damon-even without compulsion. But we all know how that ended…

  • Suprsparx24

    Yes it is the time is here and something tells me that when they both find out why stefan did what he did it may put the nail in the delena coffin and force them away from each other

    Well, Delena fans thought it was the end when Ian spoiled that Damon won’t chase after Elena in Season 3 (in september), but it turned out even better, because I didn’t want Delena to happen that way. I still have my hopes up; IF Damon backs down, Elena WON’T, because too many things happened between them.

    i agree, well with the stefan and elena part.i don’t care if delena happens or not, as long as stelena ends together, which they will, i dont care how long it takes. delena will only convince elena of her love for stefan more. eventually damon will do something to muck delena up, something elena wont be able to fogive him for. thats my opinion anyway.even through stefans darkest days he still loves elena. while being compelled to turn of his feelings, he still loves her, because for him he simply cant foget something that powerful. and he still managed to resist compoltion to kill her for so long,but there are somethings you simply cant not do. a vampire resisting an origional is almost imposible. i think the only reason we saw, at the end of homecoming, stefan going of is because he cant forgive himself for what he’s done. he has always cared about elenas saftey, and i dont think he will ever fully forgive himself for almost killing her.
