We spoiled the promo earlier from the New York Comic-Con that the "Vampire Diaries" cast attended this weekend. Zap2it's fabulous Carina Adly MacKenzie was fortunate enough to snag some juicy spoilers from the cast and producers :). Here are a few of them.
Katherine's backstory will be revealed. In episode 209, we'll go back in time to 1492 to learn why Katherine is so very Katherine. "We learn from Katherine what her damage is," Williamson says of the episode, which takes place in Bulgaria (Nina Dobrev's actual birthplace). "We'll find out what happened back then that sort of foretold her future."
The worst of Katherine is yet to come. "Katherine goes super, super game-changer in the next episode and just starts wreaking havoc. You think that she already topped out, but it's just the beginning."
Williamson adds that in the clip shown before the panel, Katherine warned Elena that there's no beating her. "She's always one step ahead."
Bonnie will be stuck in a love triangle of her own. "Everybody wants Bonnie to get some!" laughs Graham. And things are looking up in that department.
"She's going to be getting interest from somebody that she already knows," Plec says, "and she's going to meet somebody new who strikes her fancy." I'm going to make a guess that Jeremy is the one who takes an interest in her, but that's just speculation.
Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Matt are going to become friends, but not right away. "Stefan's got too many issues for Matt," Roerig says. "Matt does not have the time to listen to all that. He's like 'Just be a man already, come on.' I don't think Matt could put up with all that."
Their friendship will grow out of a common purpose, Williamson says. "They're both good people, they're both good guys with good moral compasses and they have a mutual respect for each other. I think [Matt recognizes] the protector in Stefan."
Roerig agrees, "My character's going to stand beside anyone that's really going to truly love and protect Elena. That's all Matt cares about."
Stefan and Elena are going to hit some serious bumps in the road. In the most recent episode, Elena offered Stefan her blood. "That's a beautiful commitment in their relationship," Plec says. "It's kind of like a monogamy commitment in a way. It's a little cheesy and it's very perverse, but I thought it was kind of beautiful and special. Their relationship as of that moment has never been stronger." It won't last long, though. "The problem is all the damage that Katherine's been doing in [Elena's] psyche and in in Stefan's psyche. We're going to start to see the cracks in the longevity of their happiness."
