EOnline chatted with Williamson and Plec giving us some fabulous spoilers about the next four episodes of “The Vampire Diaries”. “Plan B”, the first of which airs tonight on the CW at 8/7c. Happy TVD Day!!
Katherine’s Master Plan Is About to Erupt: “That all explodes, all that information, over the next four episodes,” Julie Plec tells us. “By the time we hit Thanksgiving, you’re going to know a good chunk of it, if not most of it.”
Katherine Is Way Older Than She Looks: According to Plec and her fellow executive producer, Kevin Williamson, episode 209 is packed with flashbacks to Bulgaria circa 1492 that show us what really makes that diabolical diva tick. But we won’t be seeing Katherine before she was a vampire, nor will we meet her maker.
“We go back in time and show a lot about how Katherine came to be who she is,” Williamson says. “We answer a lot of questions basically. Because I think everyone’s interested in the doppelgänger or how did the line continue. And she’s a Petrova–we get into the Petrova line of it all…We show how she started, where she went, why they wanted her, why she was necessary to the story of the vampires.”
As for meeting the man or woman who turned Katherine into a bloodsucker, Williamson says not yet, but “we’ll probably go down that road eventually.”
Elena Won’t Be Turning Into a Vampire…Yet: Unlike the books, our heroine won’t become joining Stefan and Damon in their aversion to vervain anytime in the immediate future, but she may eventually. “We have a pitch for that, but it won’t be this year,” Williamson offers.
Things Are About to Get Way Sticky for Bonnie: “When you develop anything, there’s a positive to it and a negative to it,” Graham teases. “You’ll be able to see both sides of that.”
“She’s coming into her own, and she’s learning how to be a witch and how to be a strong witch, but we’re also showing that there are some weaknesses involved and she’s got to be careful,” Williamson says. “She doesn’t really know. She doesn’t have master Grams anymore to teach her anything. She’s on her own. She’s got that Grimwar, she can do stuff, but there’s a price that she has to pay.”
