The Vampire Diaries Zach Roerig recently spoiled to Zap2it about Matt’s mounding guilt about living while Elena passed into vampire land. He also reveals that things will continue to build and develop between Rebekah and Matt.
“That’s an interesting question, how much does Matt owe Stefan,” Zach says. “I don’t know if it’s a question of whether he owes Stefan, or if he just owes Elena. I think that’s going to be Matt’s biggest struggle, starting off the season. Just the guilt, and why him, why would Stefan — even if Elena did want it — ever listen to [her].”
On Rebekah’s chances with Matt
“Rebekah and Matt have been a little bit … hot and cold,” Zach says. “I think you can expect to see Rebekah trying to kind of clean things up with Matt and get him to forgive her. ‘I got upset. My bad, I tried to kill you. But you survived! So now we can flirt again!’ I feel like it’s going to continue to be the same dance, though, because at the end of the day, in some weird way, Matt can wrap his head around why Rebekah would do that.”
