The always stunning Nina Dobrev of The Vampire Diaries offers some spoilery dish about the season finale, “As I Lay Dying”. It’s an homage to everything the actors have put into their characters, with a few fantastic twists and turns .
“The finale episode is like an homage to the characters. It’s character-driven and about what’s happened to them and how they deal with everything. Don’t get me wrong: Of course, there’s gonna be a cliffhanger. The show’s not gonna end on a subtle note. We’re still gonna end in a way that people need and have to come back to find out what happens next season, but in a different kind of way.” Nina goes on to warn as Damon’s dementia progresses, all will not be as it seems. “We go into flashbacks and into hallucinations. You won’t really know which is which until you’re intended to know that. There’s a lot of really cool visual tricks that happen. That’s why it’s a very confusing, very interesting episode that makes you think.”
