Julie Plec Spoils Tonight's 'Dangerous Liaisons"

The Vampire Diaries EP Julie Plec has a spoilery sit down with EW about tonight's highly anticipatedTVD installment, "Dangerous Liaisons". Plec reveals all sorts of goodies, including dish on the Original Family, Klaroline, Matt and the anger that will fill Elena's heart by the end of the episode.
The Original Family

”If the villains on our show have proven anything, it’s that they have a durability,” Plec said. “It borders on supernatural, [their] ability to sense things that are wrong, and to survive what seems to be certain doom. There’s five Originals and an Original mama. We’ll see who comes out the other side of it all to tell the tale.”

Klaus and Caroline

“Seeing a romantic vulnerability in Klaus gives us a window into him a little bit. Klaus certainly is, and will continue to be, the provider of much antagonism and some very extreme jeopardy for our heroes, [but] no one is singularly just evil. He’s got his own demons, his own wants, his own desires — things that he’s never experienced, or he wants in his own life.” Julie goes on to elaborate, “We love watching Caroline, who at the beginning of the series was just desperate to be chosen by anyone,” she explains. “Now 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.’ Our girl, who has come so far, is sort of like, ‘Talk to the hand, buddy.’ To see her take that stance against him, and also in defense of Tyler, is a really big deal for her.”


“Elena is going to be pissed on multiple levels,” Plec teased. “I think that a lot of people are angry, and are going to continue to be angry with each other as this unfolds over the next episode. The thing with Damon is, when he’s hurt he lashes out. He’s striking where it hurts most, probably very specifically, at Elena.” Plec goes on to spoil, “A lot of what we’re going to see is the question for Elena. [She's thinking] here is this person that I loved, and here is this friend that I have made — this friendship that has grown complicated. In the middle of it all, I’m still that girl who is not entirely sure that [I'm] supposed to be in love with any vampire, much less two. You’re not going to get through the season without all three of them understanding that a choice needs to be made, some way or another.”

Elena and Elijah

“They bring so much to it,” she said of Nina Dobrev and Daniel Gillies. “We are about to play with that a little bit. Next week definitely is very much rooted in the foundation of this compassion that Elena has for Elijah.”


“Matt is in a wonderful situation right now where he finds himself right, smack in the epicenter of everybody else’s business,” Plec laughed. “There he is, the guy that’s always kind of been on the periphery, now finding the fact that he’s the human, the good friend, the nice guy, the gentleman with the varsity jacket. He is a guy who is just trying to get through life, and maybe get out of this town one day.”

The Fate Of Our Players

“I don’t know that you can be that certain about the fate of anybody,” she said. “Many of our characters are going to come face to face with their maker before the season is over. The question of whether they meet, shake hands, and get dragged away with the maker is another question. There’s going to be a lot of moments where we’re not really sure who is really safe and who is going to see it through.”
