Post Mortem: Vampire Diaries Boss on Silas' Agenda, Tyler's Future and 'Delena' Challenges

Vampire Diaries Season 5 SpoilersWarning: The following article contains major spoilers from Thursday’s season finale of The Vampire Diaries. Proceed at your own risk!

Thursday’s season finale of Vampire Diaries delivered several juicy twists — Stefan is Silas’ doppelganger! Katherine’s human! Jer’s alive, but Bonnie’s still a ghost! — and left us with even more burning questions. Is the newly mortal Kat about to get killed? Will no one notice something’s off with Stefan? And is Tyler finally going to come home?

TVLine went to executive producer Julie Plec to get answers on that and so much more.

TVLINE | What’s Silas’ agenda as Stefan? Is he going to be sticking around town for some purpose?
I can’t say whether he’ll be sticking around town, although I can say that he’ll definitely be coming back to town when we get back into the next season. His agenda has always been to cure himself, to get rid of the other side so that he could then die and pass over and find peace. That will remain his agenda. The question is: How will he go about it? Everything he meant to do this year blew up in his face.

TVLINE | Can he really fool everyone into thinking he’s Stefan?
He’s going to give it a good college try. He is, after all, psychic, as well. So he can get inside people’s heads and make them think whatever he wants. It’s not like we’re going to play an entire season of The Parent Trap. [Laughs] But there will be some funny times right at the beginning of the season.

Vampire Diaries Season 5 SpoilersTVLINE | Now that Katherine is a human – and given that she’s pissed off her fair share of people in Mystic Falls – what’s to stop everyone from killing her?
Absolutely nothing is going to stop everyone from trying to kill her. That’s what puts her in a pickle that is going to have her seeking out protection from unlikely sources.

TVLINE | With Stefan gone, Damon with Elena, and Klaus and Elijah on The Originals, who is left to care about what becomes of her?
[Laughs] That’s the realization she comes to over her summer break. “Oh, boy, did I screw up, and now my chickens are coming home to roost.” She’s definitely going to find herself on the wrong end of a lot of vendettas.

TVLINE | So Nina [Dobrev] will be playing two characters again for a pretty significant portion of the next season?
Yeah. We’ll definitely see a great storyline with Katherine as a human, and a great, fun one with Damon and Elena trying to make their relationship work as she heads off to college and starts her new life.

TVLINE | Speaking of, why Damon? What were you hoping to get to explore in Elena choosing Damon?
Damon’s a character who’s been driven by feeling like he’s not worthy of love. Now that he’s on the receiving end of that love, what will that mean for him? And where will he have to make changes in him, in his behavior? Or will he still be, “I am who I am. You love me for who I am. I’m not going to change for you”? It’ll be a fun dynamic to see him either trying to exercise restraint or not being able to exercise restraint in the name of love of this girl, especially as he’s got a new houseguest. He’s [living] with Jeremy Gilbert as Elena goes off to college.

TVLINE | It seemed like Caroline and Tyler are poised for a reunion. Will Michael Trevino be back next season as a regular?
Michael Trevino is still under contract. When he’ll return, we can’t say yet. He is going to have the opportunity to return to Caroline’s life in Mystic Falls. The question is, will he want to take it, given everything he’s been through since he’s been gone, which will be fun for us to learn — like what kind of life he’s been leading on the run.

Vampire Diaries Season 5 SpoilersTVLINE | That last scene between Caroline and Klaus was so loaded with emotion and potential. Is there any chance at all of having Caroline move to The Originals? Or was that the capper on ‘Klaroline’ for now?
It’s not the capper, per se. We’ll have to be more judicious with the moments between them. We’ll see. Klaus has a long journey ahead of him. He’s got a very, very, very long road toward being a redeemed character. He hasn’t exactly been a peach. Even when he does nice things for Caroline, they don’t necessarily offset all the nasty things he’s done to her and all her friends. So as Caroline grows up and goes to college and experience a new phase of her life, we’ll see if she is still drawn to him and if he’s making the kind of changes that make her want to have him in her life at all.

TVLINE | Bonnie is still a series regular, so how does she fit into the scope of the show with only one person being able to see her?
She fits very much into the scope of the show as she tries to deal with the fact that what she thought maybe wouldn’t be so difficult actually is. The absence of physical touch and physical connection with the boy that she likes, just that alone makes her feel really distant. We’ll get to see her more in her own life a little bit as she tries to figure out ways to keep her secret — [and] also stay on top of her friends and what they’re doing and if they’re safe.

TVLINE | I’m surprised you didn’t find a way to keep Alaric (Matt Davis) around.
[Laughs] Put it this way, I was all on board with that pitch. I think it felt like if we kept everybody that we loved, we’d have an entire, new, double ensemble of series regulars.

TVLINE | Now that Katherine’s human, can Klaus use her to make more hybrids? Is that something he might be concerned about on The Originals?
Given his experience with his hybrids, he might be a little gun-shy about creating another army that could potentially be used against him.

    Can’t lie, I’m not excited about Delena, but I can’t wait to see what happens with Klaus and Caroline. At first, I was not rooting for those two, but last night Klaus won me over with his speech.

    • janean137 says:

      Me either…i still dont like her in general! but Katherine…as a human or vampire! LOVE HER!

    • Babybop says:

      I feel the exact same way!

    • Elyse says:

      I don’t ship either side really. I would have been happy if she had picked Damon or Stefan… I just hope this is her final pick. no more flip flopping!

    • biggest fan says:

      we are 8 peoples here. we are the biggest fan of the vampire diaries since 2009. We, 8 girls are upsest with this show, its our lives. but now we are so dissapointed. Its not right. Elena and stefan are ment to be together. I a fan of Damon, but its not right. Every emotion of this show, i felt.we can feel stefan’s love for elena ad her love for him. That kind of love doesint just magicly dissapear. Elena haves to love him and Stelena haveto get back together. why? because 2/3 of the show, since the biggening, was talking about stefan and elena’s love. How strong, powerfull it is. i mean, she DIED FOR STEFAN!!! that love des not die. I feel so much, we 8 peoples all feel there strong love. Threw everything, they fought to be together, the show expressed there love. It gave us a strong message. If you loe someone you wont give up on them so easly ex: when katherine was thretning Stefan to remove her from his life. They did not do it!!!! because there love is strong. Stefan was compeld 3 TIMES TO DRINK ELENA. 3 times!!!! that is love. we 8 peoples and all the other stelena fans out there feel the same way. so please make it right because now, julie… you guys are saying to us that nomatter how much youlove someone, no matter how much you’ve sacrifieced for them, your lover will get over you. is that what you want us to believe? us 8 peoples… are sooooooo upset . please make it right between them. make them go back together in a romantic way.
      in season 5. because there love is undescribable. i know that she still feels the same way. i have hope on there love, just like stefan had hope that she wuld be “normal” again.

      • vik1994 says:

        hats off to all you 8 devoted stelena fans!!!!!!!!
        i’m a gr8 stelena fan too and i think exactly the same way ……….
        they r meant 2 b 2gether ….
        their love is eternal!!!

        • Nunya says:

          Cant help but wander if the writers are relying a little to much on the actors personal relationships google the actors youll see wat mean after all origanly elena chose stefan.

          • Cas says:

            Do any of the Stelena fans understand that the show has been about a girl in love with 2 brothers from the beginning of the series? Very first synopsis I read about the show said that. Get over Stelena for the moment!

          • Jeri says:

            Ian & Nina split in real life, so no, that’s not it.

          • laurenkiwi says:

            i mean, the TV series is based on the book series… so maybe you all should see what happens in the book to get an idea…. as much as i love stelena, i think there was something that happened in the books themselves.

          • Abc says:

            They have changed a lot from the books but mainly because the books are awful.

        • Sexy Monique says:

          Let me start by saying that I don’t want elena with sefphan he deserves better than a girl who fell in love with his brother right under his nose. Damon and Elena deserves each other they are one of a kind. Stefan needs to fall in love with a nice human on a different continent so that Damon doesn’t decides he loves her too. *laughs* has for Caroline and Tyler I think she deserves much more than to be a so called girlfriend that he uses when he is horny. I mean come on they have never been on a date! And when he is not gone he is using her to distract Klaus while he and Haley unsire hybrids. I mean come on she is like a piece of meat to him don’t he care about her safety! What if Klaus had killed her. Last but not least Caroline and klaus could be an epic love story yes he is evil but really who in that one pony town hasn’t done something really horrible but it isn’t seen has such unless its happening to the queen. I have seen where Klaus can be a better person if he is with Caroline and she will be treated like the queen she is I do agree that this point in there lives isn’t the best time for a relationship because both of them has a lot more to learn. But once there journey is over they will have a great love story. Has for klaus’s baby what will it be? Did anyone notice that the sex of the baby is given? And what will the baby be? A hybrid like Klaus but that wouldn’t be something new will it? Yes its the first which would make it a miracle but magical this child might be a a three way hybrid and maybe it can even turn witches and they don’t lose there powers if they become a vampire because nature didn’t say anything about that. So let’s see. I hope this child is the way to defeat original number one.

          • Jade says:

            God. I hope Delena works out! I love those two… Now, I can’t say that i’m to happy with Damon being with Elena. I’d much rather it be me! *Laughs* But, hey, Damon has always been my favorite character in the whole show. Sarcastic, arrogant and out right funny! He brings the show to life. He deserves to have Elena. He was screwed over my Katherine so many times and he just gave her his heart for her to only really love Stefan. Pathetic! It should NOT happen to him again!

            Now, on the Klaroline… I was always for it! I’m really hoping that she would be able to turn him into a better man but,… with a child… I’m not sure how Caroline will take it. She already assumed her boyfriend, Tyler, slept with that girl and now Klaus really did… yikes, right? But if she can cope with it, I think they’d make a really good couple. If you wanna get twisted about things, their relationship could be used for bad. Like Klaus could use her to get close to the other ‘team’ and win their trust just so in the end maybe he could kill them all. Or the others could use Caroline to their advantage so they could get close to the Originals and then they’d be all on the same side. But, them all working together could also be a bad thing. I like the adventures and the fights, with the Originals on their side, who the heck would be stupid enough to mess with them!? Well, I think I may have gotten tongue tied along this segment, but I think you get the drift.

            Onto the subject of Katherine, I think being human could be a good thing. I’m rotting that it will bring the good out in her and she will become that sweet little orphaned girl she once was. Not saying I wouldn’t like to see her killed though! This is actually going to be very tricky. I have no idea what to do with the whole situation so i’m eager to see what they come up.

            Oh, Stefan. Pooooorr pooor Stefan. Get the frag over it! He ran
            off, he pushed Elena away. Elena basically… you know what? No. Remember this line, “I won’t love a ghost for the rest of my life.” Stelena was absolutely awful. Yes, Stefan will always be a good choice. He’s a sweety. But Damon… his love consumes her. He challenges her. He makes her question things. And she makes him a better person. They’re just better for each other, don’t you think? Sorry, off topic. But Stefan pushed Elena away. He knew he wasn’t right for her. I’m thinking maybe him and Katherine get together…? Odd, right? But now that she’s human… maybe she will go back to a sweet little orphan girl she once was. Perfectly Stefan’s type. Sweet. And she did say he was the only one she really loved. But that is if he doesn’t die. Can’t forget what happened at the end of season 4. Totally threw me off!

        • LoveTriangle says:

          I don’t really agree with you. I know how much Stefan loves Elena and Elena loves Stefan and I think that Stefan doesn’t deserve to loose Elena after all they’ve been trough and I’m a little sorry for him but I prefer Delena. No, I LOVE Delena. They look really nice together. Damon is more, more, MORE gorgeous than Stefan, not that it really matters, but I like his personality, too. I don’t know, I just feel that Damon and Elena belong together. Don’t you like Damon too? He’s just great!

          • Chelsea says:

            i totally agree with you 100% about this entire comment
            Damon is soooo georgeous. (I have even set him to my desktop background) he is enlarged and is super georgeous. i smile when i see him. anyway besides the point, I am infintiy and beyond percent Delena, and i love the whole flirt thing with Klaus and Caroline. The very first vampire Klaus and a new born, Caroline almost inlove. hope so. they are so romantic together. He wants to please her – its cute.

            I feel sorry for stefan too. Did he cry? But as his best friend Lexi said , She was an epic lovve meaning that she isnt apart of his life anymore. He has to let go in order to find another.

            Damon is right for elena. he says hes selfish and shouldnt belong with elena for the entire season but he resisted his temptation, er, elena, lol. It proves he is NOT selfish because he didnt get what he wanted for a long time. At least he didnt give up. They are just soooooo PERFECT together.

            DAMON & ELENA Together FOREVER!!! aawwww!
            giving me goosebumps!

        • Alivia says:

          I’m with the Stelena fans!!! Give them another chance!!!!

          • Chelsea says:

            WHY??????????????
            Stefan lies to her and plus elena has changed since she became a vampire.
            Look at Caroline for example, she went from some snotty neorotic person to a confident and great vampire. Her personality changed Dramatically!!!
            For the better.
            Elena was Too caring and now that shes a vampire she has the right amount of care in her, so to speak,

            SHe belongs with damon

      • LC says:

        I can’t take you seriously until you learn how to spell.

        • Krista says:

          Hey! you’re being mean to them. There’s nothing wrong about them having wrong spelling. They’re not perfect and you too…You, commenting like that is below the belt. If you can’t take them seriously, then why bother replying on their comment? Learn to respect others.

          • Jade Owens says:

            Krista, really? That’s your reply? Nothing about the show just to tell someone to be nice? Psh.

            And I agree. Elena will always love Stefan. BUT NOT ROMANTICALLY! Get it threw your skulls. Love doesn’t disappear. She loves him, but is not IN LOVE with him. And another thing, what the frag? Long distance relationship? It’s like they’re setting up for Damon and Elena not to work out… >_>

            Although, I don’t want Elena to seem like a… well, you get it… but I’ve always been interested in Elijah and Elena too. But I believe he’s only got a thing for Katerina. But Katerina has a thing for Stefan. But Stefan has a thing for Elena. And Elena has a thing for Damon. It’s all so confusing!

            But the main point if this, is I am a DELENA fan! c: I want them to woorrrkkk sooooo bad.

        • Lauren says:

          Lol as shallow as it is, me neither. It just ruins someone’s credibility when I need the lolomfghewkedawnfonix dictionary to decipher it. That being said, seeing the characters develop this season and the incredible work from Nina Dobrev both as human, vampire, and DG Katherine; she’s easily one of the most talented actresses I’ve ever seen. The “turn-it-off” scene where she breaks down, and then burns the house down was mind blowing. It makes you feel like the story is real which is the best kind of show! I really like Damon and I think he loves Elena the same if not more than Stefan just in a different way. Fictional characters yes, but when you get invested in the characters, that’s what sets apart a good show from an epic one… There better be a season Five!

          • Memi says:

            I agree but why have them separated by the Elena going off to college. Kind of feel cheated by it a distance relationship totally making it harder than when she was with Stephan. It’s like they are setting them up to fail. I get that feeling when Julie says “trying to make their relationship work” I call BS on this. It just a Segway for Stefan and Elena to back together.

        • Jessica says:

          They’re probably kids; give ‘em a break. You’re commenting on a Vampire Diaries forum… were you expected brain surgeons?

      • Delena FTW says:

        Elena’s love for Stefan did not magically disappear. She still loves him – she said so. But she isn’t romantically in love with him anymore. And, yes, that is plausible. When Elena turned into a vampire she came inyo her own, matured into the person she would have become over time as a human. This development inevitably leads to Stelena break up because people, even those ‘epically in love’, can grow apart. Thus, Delena makes perfect sense to me.

        • team elejah says:

          I agree with you 100%on on that. You an still love someone and not be “in love” with them. People need to chill out, these are just fictional characters on a tv show.

        • Annie says:

          Besides, Elena met Damon first. She would’ve fallen in love with him if he didn’t compel her to forget that she met him and making her think that she met Stefan first.

          Who knows, maybe they’ll be twisted and somehow make Silas/Stefan appear interesting to Elena who begins to get bored if Damon who either tries too hard to change for her or is too stubborn to be nicer. We shouldn’t ask the writers to change the story…let them be creative so we can watch the storyline grow. :)

        • Ashlee says:

          I agree completely. I am a supporter of Delena and always have been. I think they are perfect for each other, I am so happy.

          • ellen says:

            I agree, have been a supporter of Delena, and felt there Belong together from season one, Theres has been a four Year Journey, from fascination to hate to friendship, lust passion and to deep all consuming Love. They are the epic Love Story of TVD the Movie.

          • Elena says:

            so perfect for each other that Damon was not able to resist compulsion but Stefan did, the episode when Klaus told Stefan to kill Elena, he didnt, even Klaus said if there is anything bigger than your love for blood is your love for Elena.. Damon n Elena yes they love each other but they are not end game, even Elena said it at the end of season 4, of all the decisions she has made choosing him will prove to be the worse one, she is not going to be able to change Damon, he enjoys being a vampire and killing, and even though he does become a better person for her, he would never be as good as Stefan, I mean you know Stefan is the better guy when even after being heartbroken because Elena chose his brother he even tell Damon, I am not not happy for you…

          • LoveTriangle says:

            I agree with you, too. I LOVE Delena! I think they belong to each other, altough I would like Damon to be with me!

      • guest says:

        “it’s your life”? that’s one pathetic (half)sentence.

      • Carissa says:

        I totally agree. You said it all.

      • Mia says:

        Hate to break it to you… But this show isn’t real, people can fall out of love. So come out of your fantasy because love doesn’t really exist. And Elena and Stefan aren’t really “meant” to be together so grow up.

        • Tia says:

          Dont be a douche! If you dont want to hear or read what we have to say then dont! But we are having a disscussion so dont be a dick

      • reka says:

        i’m agree with you 8 people. i do love stelena.

        • Jess says:

          Personally for me Stelena is an adult relationship and delena is teenage love, when your in love with someone you put them and their needs first I.e when your a teenager your besotted with that person only want them etc where an adult relationship you over analyse it in the sense that if their friends died you would already be thinking of the outcome of your love , for me Stelena is more of a realistic love

      • B. Patterson says:

        Yep, because that is reality. Elena is just graduating high school! Reality (most often) is dating and having several boyfriends before finally settling down. Stefan is 100’s of years old, so while he has finally found his love, Elena is just starting out on her life’s journey – she is still trying to discover who she is and who she’s going to be. It’s no longer the 50’s where kids graduate high school and then marry their high school sweetheart – all at the tender age of 18. You “8” may have not been alive long enough to learn this lesson yourselves, but it is a lesson you will learn as you get older…

        • Ursula says:

          I’m 20 and married I have been for a year now because there is no one else I would rather be with we have been through so much so when he proposed I couldn’t think of a reason why not I love him and know I always will prooving a love like that really does exist

          • B. Patterson says:

            Yes, it can and does, but it’s not the usual norm anymore, it’s now more unique and rare in this country. Usually, high school sweethearts are first luvs, called thusly because it’s the first of more luvs. I just remember stories of my parents, and even my older syblines, of many of the other couples in their high school class getting married after high school to their HS sweethearts. This in comparison to each generation since (1 sublime married HS sweetheart, although she wasn’t first girlfriend and other sybline also married at 19, but not HS sweetheart and dated ALOT before meeting her love) and watching my nephews and their classmates’ behavior, and reading up on polls and research articles since then…kids used to have to be adults at 18, getting jobs, apartments, or going off to college; now, kids are “dependents” until 25! That change in law reflects the change in how parents act and treat their kids today. I was out on my own at 17, and yet the kids today are still home and not allowed to be home alone until late teens – I was babysitting 3 kids, earning money when I was 12! That just doesn’t happen today (not to say it never happens, just is very rare in comparison to my generation and older generations)…ok, ending the novel-length tangent, lol. Btw, to others critiquing the typing, I am now on iPhone, and while I tried to catch the auto-correct changes, I’m sure there are word replacements or iPhone “typos” I didn’t catch; sorry!

          • Sus Hansen says:

            I´m sorry but you are 20 years old and been married for 1 year — hardly proff of eternal love.

          • Jessica says:

            Haha… come talk to us in another ten years…

          • Suzie says:

            Oh honey…Only 20 years old…that is hardly an age when one knows anything about anything…much less what life will throw your way. Sorry for saying this, but I think you are a living a romanticized version of what real life is. I bet this is your first real love and that is why you feel that way. Things change, people change, feelings die. Yes, they do! Don’t get me wrong, I hope your marital bliss stays the same as long as possible, but that is really against the odds, against human nature. Good luck though. I hope I’m proven wrong (highly doubt it) and you feel the same after 20 years married. Oh gawd, you have NO idea…

      • Ursula says:

        Totally agree biggest fab of Stelena the new Delena makes no sense with how Stefan and Elena felt about each other

      • Cat says:

        I want Stefan and Elena back together! I’ve been a major fan of this show and now that she chose Damon I’m not happy!! She belongs with Stefan, always has, always will! She is his soulmate and he is hers! She just needs to realize it and do so fast!! I really hope her relationship with Damon doesn’t last too long! Stefan all the way!!

        • maxii!! says:

          But remember how damon’s first love to Katherine was everythere alwasys has to bng to him, she still loved stephan… that broke his heart, then he couldn’t even get neither of them because of stephan… so i am glad that delena exists… Damon has done everything to make things hang on… There always have to be a bad boy to make the right decision

        • LoveTriangle says:

          I don’t really agree with you, Cat. I know how much Stefan loves Elena and Elena loves Stefan and I think that Stefan doesn’t deserve to loose Elena after all they’ve been trough and I’m a little sorry for him but I prefer Delena. No, I LOVE Delena. They look really nice together. Damon is more, more, MORE gorgeous than Stefan, not that it really matters, but I like his personality, too. I don’t know, I just feel that Damon and Elena belong together. Don’t you like Damon too? He’s just great!

      • mpumie says:

        i think the love she feels for Damon is more powerful than the love she felt for Stefan he was there when she needed someone to love and be there for her there was something childlike about their love though. i think now she has come into her own and can love someone for the sake of loving them and not cause she needs assurance. she loves Damon freely and this goes to show how much she has grown as a person in the series. she is taking charge of her life and is not afraid to do so. i think her love for Damon gave her that strength

        • Cathy O. says:

          I agree mpumie. This was perfectly stated.

        • Ashlee says:

          Perfectly stated. I think she did love Stefan for helping her through a rough time but she is IN LOVE with Damon for everything after that, Even through his bad side, Damon was always the one there for her, I love them together, Delena forever!

        • Tia says:

          Exactly damon and elena’s relationship is more mature then Stelena and when elena transitioned into a vampire her feelings for damon over-powered her feelings for stefan. Her and stefan had an epic love yes but Damon and Elena have a stronger love because even though he killed snapped jeremy and ricks neck, basically in a way killed jenna, and has hurt her a million times she still loves him. I get the Stelena thing but i mean in all truth lets face it Stefan is selfish. Have you seen what damon did for him in that episode ” we’ll always have bourben street” he gave up spending time with his little brother because he didn’t want him to become the ripper! Damon has done a lot for his brother and deep down he loves his brother and ps Delena forever!!!

          • Tara says:

            How is Stefan selfish? Did u see what he did in order to save Damon’s life? He got him the cure from Klaus and left Mysitc Falls to keep him alive when he was bitten by tyler and almost died. Damon only gave up spending time with Stefan because of Lexie he didn’t make the decision on his own, he’s much too selfish and self-centered for that.

          • Jessica says:

            Do you really think it’s a good think if you love someone after they kill your sibling…?? Come on…

          • LoveTriangle says:

            You’re right, Tia. LOVE Delena! Delena 4 ever!

      • Megan says:

        To those fans all for Stelena, I feel ya. I get where you are coming from. But I feel like the Delena route is more realistic because someone can love you so much but you may not love them the same back or love them in the right way. Stelena was too gooey and fairy tale like. I feel like the things between Damon and Elena are more realistic.
        And come on, there’s way more passion there.

      • Mary says:

        super true Stelena ):

      • roobee7 says:

        I Tottally Agree!! I Literally Prefer Staying In All day Watching Vampire Diaries Then Going Out. It Is Like My Life Lol. But I Honestly Think Stefan And Elena Should Go Back. Don’t Get Me Wrong, I Love Damon. But, Stefan And Elena Are Just Meant For Eachother.

        • Rebecca says:

          Lol!!In my own opinion I love stefan,damon and all the characters I think they are all very talented actors and actresses!!Other people in the world might not agree and they don’t have to but I think that Stefan and Caroling have a really sweet bestfriend relationship and that its even better than Elena and Damons love relationshop,either way if she picked Stefan or Damon I wouldn’t really mind because it’s good to see change in relationships,but I wanna see more people in the love triangle other than E/S/D,but I’m excited to see different relationships pregress in season 5!!!! :) Feel free to reply and explain your thoughts to me!!!! ;)

          I AM WITH U I HATE DAMON AND ElENA ToGETHER STELENA NEEDS TO COME BACK

        • Elena is still a vampire with a new developing attitude.. But, she is still sensitive. In the final show of last season , Elena gets into a terrible fight, she is trying to prevent Catherine who is much stronger, from centuries, as a vampire, from killing her forever. Catherine is jealous. Elana crushed the small container holding the cure, into Catherine’s mouth, it appears to be her only weapon to save herself. I feel Katherine will slowly become sweet natured as Elana was, since becoming human? I feel Elana may acquire the same spiteful personality Catherine felt. It began before Catherine ever met both brothers. Something she is hiding in her past. Then meeting her both brothers, and falling in what appears to be love, which only complicates things even more. That’s when Catherine made it appeared she chose to end her life forever. She turned to dust and all that remained was her long flowing dress. This story is amazing. Someone with a creative mind, has used their talents well, in developing “The Vampire Diaries”.

          • LoveTriangle says:

            Joann Rogers Tague, I totally agree with you, THE BOOK is great but you are talking about the book and the episodes the same time. The begining is from the last episode of vampire diaries and the end is somethig that Stefan is telling Elena in the first book.

      • klever says:

        The finale was incredible. Its so cute how demon gets to find peace. Demon nd elena coming together has actually proving that Love is nat abt saving, helping the person or changing the person is abt finding the person dat is already in d rite fit. Julie ur doing a good job cant wait to see 5.

      • Tughfah says:

        i agree , it just doesnt make sense that they found eachother and fall madly inlove for 4 seasons and all of a sudden because she think she is nlove with Damon , stefan is suddenly completely out of her mind . i dont get that , doesnt add up . I too am disapointed , ‘Honestly for me season 4 was realy transparent with Elena being more for Damon , i yawned a few times , like for 3 season her love was to strong for Stefan to be fooled by Damon . I think it sucks ! Heres to crossing my fingers that Elena and Stefan find their way back to eachother and fall inlove like they did before , If not Elena , Stefan deserves it . I like Damon as a sincere brother , i am a fan of him too but not with Elena

      • katie says:

        Okay Elena did not die for Stefan she died for matt -_- and like lexie said he can move on, everyone has a first love like in highschool (Elena and Stefan)and how many of them stay together? It’s ok to move on from someone, she’s no longer a highschool girl, she is a woman, and she shouldn’t feel guilty for it. And yes the fan base probably was a majority of stelena…… In the beginning of first season, by the time we got more into Damon’s character and saw that there is good in him I myself as well as others changed there mind and now there is a majority of Delena. And I honestly can’t understand how stelena fans are also klaroline fans since a lot of you are always bashing Damon for being bad, well m pretty sure Klaus’ track record is a lot worse. It doesnt make sense and its not really fair to Damon’s character especially since you can overlook all the crap Klaus has recently done
        compared to stuff Damon has done 3-4 years ago

        • Lisa says:

          Totally a Delena fan! Let’s face facts-Damon is the bad boy with a heart and is there a female-vampire or human who would not fall for that? Go back and view all the prior seasons and you will have to come to this conclusion-Everything Stefan does he does for Damon (joining Klaus to save Damon’s life, saving Klaus’ life to ultimately save Damon’s life) everything is for Damon. Damon on the other hand, even though he may make some “bad” decisions-everything he does is done for Elena and her happiness. That my friends is love!

          • LoveTriangle says:

            You’re right. Damon is really IN LOVE with Elena and he’s doing a lot for her and Elena is IN LOVE with him. I know that she still cares about Stefan, but now she just LOVES him. One of the Delena fans said that Elena loved Stefan like she loves now Matt from the begining because he was there for her when she felt alone, and I think the same way.

      • Nunyabizness says:

        Dude you need spell check. Also, Stelena wasn’t working out with all those lies between them and you can tell that Stefan had his humanity back on and didn’t make an effort to get back together with Elena.

      • Andy says:

        Totally agree!! I love Damon, he makes me laugh, a lot.. But Elena must end with Stefan, their meant to be… Don’t let their epic love die!!!!!!

      • Tvdsnumberonebiggestfanstelena says:

        This is so true. Stelena a love is epic forever and has to happen. Please make it be stelena for ever please!!

      • vikki says:

        The core of this show is a love triangle! Why would you believe that Elena & Damon were never meant to be together? And when exactly did Elena ‘die for Stefan’? did i miss an episode? i mean she died because She asked Stefan to save Matt instead of her so technically she ‘died for Matt’

      • hadeel says:

        I AGREE 100% with your comment and I am too cheering and hoping for a steelena reunion! I want to see Stephan and elena back together! the show grew on me because of their love for each other and that’s what made the show! I fell in love with their love for each other. Damon and Elena are not epic! their story is not a true love story! Please rooting on team Steelena

      • Chris Salmon says:

        You just took the words right out of my mouth. I’m for ever watching season 1&2 and the love between Stefan and Elena is amazing. That’s what drew me into the Vampire Diaries in the first place. I can’t see Julie not putting them back together because that love that Stefan and Elena have doesn’t just go away like that, it’s an everlasting love that never dies. The only reason Elena is with Damon is because firstly she was sired to him and I reckon because she was sired to him for so long she’s ended up getting closer to him, where otherwise without the sire she’d have still been with Stefan. I don’t believe that she doesn’t still love Stefan. I believe that she loves the both of them. Stefan and Elena are the perfect couple and they belong together, so please Julie put our favourite couple back together before it’s to late.

      • I will have to agree with the 8 biggest fans, about the love between Stefan and Elena, and their relationship, they do belong together! I just got into watching The Vampire Diaries on Netflix, and Season 5, I watched on computer, the internet! The whole reason I did get into watching it, was all because of Stefan and Elena! I mean, Really? I can’t believe how things are at this point, Damon and Elena? That’s just messed up! I don’t care if Elena is not the same since she has become a vampire, that means nothing! Now, I’m not glad that Damon is dead and all, but he does not belong with Elena! Damon has said it, and she has said the same, the kind of relationship they have is toxic! They’re poison to each other! But the love between Stefan and Elena is out of this world, epic! The real thing! If Katherine wasn’t dead, her and Damon truly belongs together! I don’t know, it’s most likely best Katherine is dead now, unless they bring her back somehow! Stefan said it himself, the love he has for Elena is true love, nothing like he had ever felt before, he never felt that with Katherine! Look at what Stefan did having Elena there to love him, and to believe in him, he overcame the ripper, and regained his humanity back! Elena was willing to die, and become a vampire for Stefan! I really don’t understand why this story has turned into a big mess! The talk of Stefan and Caroline hooking up, I don’t think that should happen neither, they are good just by being friends! Of course, from what I’ve read the beans have already been spilled by Paul Wesley, Stefan and Caroline will be having some kind of a romantic relationship!

    • Randy says:

      That scene with Stefan getting pushed in the water made me flash back to Connor doing the same to Angel while he was waiting to meet Cordelia. J wonder it that was a nod to Angel or if they were even aware?

      • Rose says:

        Totally aware for me since Julie had said more than once that she’s a huge fan of Joss Whedon!

        • lorna says:

          Def NOT the first time she has copied off of Buffy or Angel, including a direct threat about ripping out someone’s rib cage and wearing it as a hat. Yes, as soon as moment happens, I can immediately place it on either show, and the episode.

          • Cas says:

            I don’t see the big deal if she borrows or pays homage to plots used by Joss. I mean every show at one point ir another has used ideas from other shows and at least she is taking those ideas from good solid worthy TV shows instead of crap ones.

          • larnie says:

            Lorna that “quote” is also off true blood. Most shows copy a line from another show

      • Tchele says:

        I was thinking the same thing, totally throw back to Conner tossing Angel into the water.

      • Thereasonsy says:

        Angel is Stefan’s Spirit Animal.

    • Jane says:

      Elena’s new decision/pick was ridiculous, as in it made no sense. I don’t get why Elena was so eager to kill Katherine because she killed Jeremy when Damon did the same to her brother. Just what the fck? Not to mention all the abuse and pain that he caused her. But Delena was over and doomed even before it began. That love confession wasn’t only contrived but also hilarious, because she says that will be the worst choice she will make. She didn’t even add a maybe lol. Plus their relationship won’t survive the guilt over Stefan constantly drowning at the bottom of the ocean for months. Delena and both Damon and Elena will feel terrible and like most sane people, disgusted by their sick relationship. Maybe all of this non-sense is for a reason, if the writers realize how much they messed up, they could fix it good.

      • Lisa says:

        Let me guess… a gigantic Stelena fan?
        *
        “Elena’s new decision/pick was ridiculous, as in it made no sense. I don’t get why Elena was so eager to kill Katherine because she killed Jeremy when Damon did the same to her brother.”
        Jeremy had the ring on when Damon killed him. His death wasn’t permanent. And that was awhile ago. Damon has redeemed himself since then (at least where Elena is concerned), because he fell in love with her. He was good to her; she liked it. Now that Elena has gone and killed innocent people as “unfeeling Elena,” she really doesn’t have room to be super judgy about Damon’s life choices. As for Katherine–Elena hated her from the start, Katherine never stopped being evil to Elena; and Jeremy’s death was (at the time) thought to be permanent. It’s not surprising that Elena would want to kill Katherine.
        *
        “Plus their relationship won’t survive the guilt over Stefan constantly drowning at the bottom of the ocean for months. Delena and both Damon and Elena will feel terrible and like most sane people, disgusted by their sick relationship.”
        Eh? Damon and Elena didn’t cause Stefan to be sunk in a lake. Why would they feel guilty? And how would that make their relationship sick? Stefan is no saint, either. When he’s “unfeeling Stefan” is 10,000x worse than Damon on Damon’s worst day. He’s–literally–a psychopathic serial killer. And while he was a psychopathic serial killer he treated Elena like crap. Elena found a way to forgive all that, yet her relationship with Damon is sick and disgusting? How does that work?

        • Someone says:

          I get that you maybe don’t like stelena, but I don’t like delena, reasons, it just isn’t going to work, maybe Elena loves Damon, but she will never be 100% with Damon, a love like hers and Stefan’s doesn’t jus disappear, but lets say that somehow, in some way, they make her forget 100% about Stefan, what about Damon, Damon and Stefan are brothers, it would put him in pain, constantly, knowing that he is hurting his brother, siblings have one of the strongest bonds, and yes they can have problems just as bad as Damon and Stefan, I know, because no matter how mad I am at my siblings, no matter how pissed off I am about something, i would give up my happiness in a heartbeat for my sister or brother.

        • Ursula says:

          Techniquley Damon and Elena did cause Stefan to drown because had she chosen Stefan he would never had left also they should feel guilty because she loved Stefan and now she’s with his brother it’s sick

          • Xyz says:

            Except he would have because he was leaving to get rid of Silas. So even if Elena hadn’t chosen Damon he would have had to leave at some point to get rid of him. My advice to Stelena fans it to take a chill pill and just enjoy the show. You aren’t true fans of the show if one relationship not going your way at the moment is making you not to watch or upsetting you this much. From day one the synopsis of the show has been a love story about a girl and 2 brothers.

          • poop says:

            but if she had picked stephan then damon would have gon away and damon whould have drowned instead so what the heck, then stephan would feel guilty -_-

        • Memi says:

          Lisa I couldn’t agree with you more. Stefan treated Elena like dirt and did some pretty horrific things as his time as a Vampire. What makes him the Saint? He is “The Ripper”. In the twenties he was basically a mass murder he falls on and off the wagon thats why he needs a sober sponsers first Lexie then Caroline I grant you his last Ripper bing was compelled but he has never been able to really control it. Stefan probably has killed more than Damon but some how looks down on Damon like he is better why because he feels remorse and so we are blindly suppose to forget what he has done and is capable of doing? Damon has done bad things but nothing compared to Stefan. Damon is comfortable in his skin and now so is Elena they are more compatable now thar she is Vampire. Stefan can’t be with Elena now because he can’t feed like she does and would end up making her feel guilty for wanting human blood. Please those who hate on Damon really need to stop looking at Stefan through rose colored glasses. Put them down please.

          • Tara says:

            I look at Stefan with the same glasses i look at Damon with and even on his worst day Stefan is a better person than Damon. It’s not about how many people Stefan or Damon has killed it’s about why they killed them. With Stefan he’s driven to kill it’s something he has trouble controlling but with Damon he kills cause he can, because he wants to, he doesn’t care about anything else, he’s egotisical. He wants what he wants when he wants it.

          • Emi says:

            Maybe you’re forgetting Klaus’ statement “The only thing stronger than your craving for blood is your love for Elena” {Klaus talking to Stefan}

      • deflated fan says:

        im not a delena or stefan fan but i agree why make elana and stefans relationship over the years so intense and to be honest it has put me off the show

      • Cathy O. says:

        When Elena said, “t would prove to be the worst choice”she was referring to her choice not to take the cure and become human. Her choice was to remain a vampire in order to spend eternity with Damon because she loves him. I too think her love for Damon is stronger than it was for Stefan. Remember Elena never said forever or eternity too Stefan. It was always, “forever if I want too”. IMO Stefan was her first love but Damon is her true love.

        • Jules says:

          I laughed at your post – not because I think what u wrote was funny but because it amuses me as to how differently people see things depending on which brother they like better. I didn’t see her choosing to be a vampire so she could be with Damon forever. More like she knew it seems like a stupid decision to love him but she was gonna do it anyway. And I’m not sure where you’re getting that she said or means anything about forever with Damon- wishful thinking maybe? Its just interesting to me how the show is written so that each side of the shippers can always find hidden meanings to satisfy who they think Elena should be with. And I’m not judging- I do it too when it comes to Stelena! We all have our opinions.

          • Tara says:

            Jules,I completely agree it is funny how people interpret things based on which brother they like. I know I get totally territorial when it comes to Stefan but i don’t blind myself to who Stefan is he has his flaws but to those who worship Damon, he can do no wrong no matter how much wrong’s he’s done. It’s like because he’s hot he can do no wrong.

        • Alexia says:

          It’s only fair that Stefan end up with Elena because he resisted the mind control of klaus and he even says that, that type of love never dies and that’s a clear foreshadowing for season 5 and also in the book she ends up with Stefan so STELENA FOREVER and ps. For what you said about Elena wanting to live forever with Damon she chooses Stefan as a vampire in the beginning. STELENA!!!!!!

          • katie says:

            Yeah she chose Stefan in the beginning but also remember that every choice and behavior she had as a human she wanted to stick to because it was her holding onto her humanity Julie plec said it herself. Meaning that because she chose Stefan as a human she wanted to stick to it evn if her feelings had changed. But she’s with Damon now anyway DELENA!

      • Suzie says:

        Holy cow…you have the blinders on securely fastened, don’t you? It is fine if you like Elena with Stefan better, but what is ridiculous is your assessment of what’s going on in the show. Of course Elena picking Damon made absolute sense. What show have you been watching? This Damon/Elena relationship has been built over the course of the seasons (even when Elena was with Stefan) and this was just he culmination of everything they have been through. Stefan was Elena’s puppy love, but Damon is the kind of love that grows from life, from reality and against all odds. Elena knows all that Damon has done, but she also realizes that his love for her has changed him dramatically. Not to say that he is to change completely because that would be totally lame and unrealistic. He will always be who he is (hopefully) while loving her. Stefan deserves to find somebody that is IN love with him just as Elena is IN love with Damon. She will always have love for Stefan because first loves are never forgotten, but she truly loves Damon. So much, that even though she knows all the consequences of her choice, she does not feel sorry for it. Loving somebody is about how that person makes you feel about yourself, and Damon makes Elena feel strong, loved and protected, being either human or vampire. Stefan couldn’t get over her being a vampire and made her feel less of a “woman” because of that. That was Stefan’s downfall. I hope Stefan gets somebody better suited for him. He deserves to be happy as well. Elena and Damon are just a perfect combination as they balance each other flawlessly.

    • biggest fan says:

      stefan and elena belong together its there destiny!!!!!!!!!! they are perfect
      from your 8 biggest fans

    • Trish says:

      You really read my mind. I would like to see how the dynamics between Klaus and Caroline work out. I really hope all roads Caroline takes lead to Klaus.

    • 23 says:

      Me either… I’m so mad about Delena! I think they suck when they are together. Elena and Stefan are meant to be together!! They ARE the Vampire Diaries… I hope Julie Plec will not screw it up more than she already did. I love Klaroline too, i hope they will become closer next season.

      • Delena FTW says:

        “Stefan and Elena are the vampire diaries”???? How so? The original author, LJ Smith, wanted Delena as endgame and was kept from doing so by her publishing company…they fired her from writing her own series after Shadow Souls.

        • Fran says:

          You guys always get this wrong. LJ Smith did NOT say that Delena was endgame in her books. She stated that she wanted Damon and Elena (AND Damon and Bonnie!) together in future books but never definitively said they were endgame. In fact, she says that she’s not even sure who Elena would end up with. She wanted to write more books and see what direction she ended up going in. Go to her website and you will see this. Yes, she was fired for wanting to explore a romantic relationship between Damon and Elena but she never said they were endgame for sure. Delena fans assumed that.

        • Ursula says:

          That’s because Delena never made sense in the books either

          • Cas says:

            In your opinion. I think the author thought it made sense which is why she thought she needed to explore it. Everyone else has this happily ever after mentality and they don’t like conflict in relationships or anything that could make the so called perfect couple not end up together so they go against it.

    • Alexa says:

      Holy crap!!! I thought it was Silas pretending to be Elena who confessed her love for Damon, so he could lock up Stefan (he knew Stefan would walk away if Elena chose Damon)

      • Janice Diaz says:

        I thought that too!

      • That would be a great twist to start off the beginning of season 5. The fact the actors Nina (Elena) and Ian (Damon) broke up in real life after the finale was filmed, I’m sure they wont want to act as a couple kissing and all that once they start filming season 5. So it would be great if the writters had that scene be Silas pretending to be Elena. Elena would really want Stephan and start looking for him once she realizes the Silas is pretending to be him.

        • Cas says:

          Idk why some fans are having a hard time accepting her decision for the moment. Julie said in an interview they are getting their moment of happiness and a real relationship. Let them get a shot as Stefan and Elena had a shot and we all know the core of the show is about the triangle so I am positive she will be back with Stefan one day. If she has any sense she will stick with Damon though as vamp Elena belongs with him more than Stefan IMO.

        • Cathy O. says:

          Nina and Ian breaking up in real life has nothing to do with their acting abilities. If they are true professionals like they say they are then they will be able to put the personal business aside and focus on the work at hand. I am sure there are a lot of actors/actresses who can’t stand each other (not talking about Ian and Nina) and still do romantic scenes. So no, nothing should change in the storyline just because they are no longer dating.

      • Ursula says:

        I thought it was Silas too was well disappointed to learn that it wasn’t :(

    • Kristen says:

      Initially, I was dreading coming to the recap for TVD b/c I knew I’d be overrun with Delena fans going on and on about their reunion, or whatever. I was shocked to find that not only did I not find excitement, I also didn’t find anyone complaining about their testament of love. That’s actually very sad. Whether good or bad, you want the fans talking about your show. You want a reaction. After all this build up, the Delena reunion resulted in dead air from the fans. Very big let down. Not sure that it would’ve been any different with Stelena, but whatever.
      I’m more excited about Caroline/Klaus, and the hinting possibility of Caroline/Stefan.
      I’m also excited to see whether Tyler returns, and how Katherine survives in her new human form. Wonder if maybe this will bring back any feelings for Damon or Stefan.
      Ha… can you imagine Damon leaving Elena for Katherine?
      Or even Stefan? I think Elena is sure about her choice with Damon, but I guarantee you the second Stefan gets a love interest, she’s going to get jealous and possessive. She’s never had to share those boys, and she has this sense of entitlement to both of them.

      • angela says:

        I totally agree with the second love interest for Silas/Stefan. I want to see Katherine and Silas together and Elena going crazy about these two.

      • soundscene says:

        Your small sphere of the internet does not encompass most of TVD’s fans, so I’d be careful about assuming what kind of reaction a particular storyline gets by all TVD viewers.

          I agree people should not state reactions as fact in numbers of people who are dissatisfied etc. TVD’s fans are too numerous and most people in our position don’t have the contacts to accurately quote such an overwhelming response. I don’t believe this page was meant for that type of comments anyway.

        • Cathy O. says:

          I agree soundscene.

    • Kachin says:

      I agree. Klaroline are GO hopefully!

    • it would definitely be interesting to see klause and caroline being that tyler isn’t coming back at all.

    • Hazi says:

      I totally agree!!! he wants to be her last love and will be waiting even if takes long years!!! Woah!!! I’m totally rooting for Klaus-Caroline pair.

    • Screw Damon says:

      I think the producers had Elena chose Damon because they wanted her to be just like Katherine.

    • DGLSDIANE says:

      I’m with you don’t really like DELENA either! I just felt so bad for Stephan really miss him and Elena together. Hope they can find their way back to each other. Now would be a good time to put Damen with Katherine.

    • Candi says:

      TVD gonna SUCK if elena ends up wit damon. I reli hate Delena itz juz nt right. But Stefan and Elena it juz sounds Amazing. Juz want STELENA back. Cause if elena ends up with damon ten she would be a person who can’t even love someone(stefan) truly.Go STELENA..!

    • Candi says:

      Not happy with the delena thing. Stefan and Elena should always be together. They should end up together if not this shows gonna SUCK for sure. Pliz make it STELENA.

  2. kavyn says:

    No question on why she decided to revive Jeremy? I’d easily have preferred seeing Alaric or Lexi revived, especially since Jeremy was killed recently… It makes it feel like a cop out instead of a shocker or game changer.

    I’m especially confused since Jeremy was getting all of these ridiculous storylines (the sudden ability to see ghosts, magically becoming one of the five hunters out of thin air, etc). I thought the whole point of killing him was to shift Elena’s focus/desires while not having to worry about Jeremy.

    • There was some sort of logic at these points… Jeremy died and was resurrected with magic which gave him the ghost seeing ability and he became the hunter because his family had hunted vampires for generations – that’s what made him a potential candidate. I also don’t like Jeremy though. He’s the least needed character.

      • kavyn says:

        It’s just unbelievably too much. The ability to see ghosts was a great story line for him, until they stopped it (ie no more Vicki/Anna, again). The hunter story line was just ridiculously stupid and unnecessary.

      • Radha says:

        Technically the least needed character is Matt. Does that mean I don’t like him? No. I’m invested in ALL characters on this show except for friggin’ Klaus.

        • Jodes says:

          Matt is needed because he is the human element. He has never had a supernatural ability or been a supernatural creature. He keeps the rest of the characters grounded and concerned about the human element. If they didn’t have a human friend, they may forget what it was like to be human causing them to not treat humans with respect. They already have a hard enough time treating humans with respect, take away Matt and they have no reason to even think about that aspect. So basically everyone should be cheering for Matt because he is our ambassador to the supernatural world. Lol.

          • sls says:

            Agreed. The most emotional moments for me all season actually. and surprisingly, revolved around Matt. With all of the supernatural things, the killing, fighting, etc. the audience can become desensitized to it all. Matt adds that little reminder that there are still humans trying to survive in all this craziness.

            When Matt walked into Jeremy’s room and saw that he was dead it just really put it all into perspective and was the truly gut-wrenching moment for me in that episode. Same with the scene where Damon snapped Matt’s neck to get Elena’s humanity back on.

            I’m not a huge Matt fan. I don’t dislike him either. That was why it was surprising to me to find myself so emotional over those couple of scenes. But he is definitely a needed part to this equation. I don’t think another human could be brought into the picture at this point to fill that role. No one would elicit the sympathy/empathy in quite the same way. Matt has been around since the beginning and represents that human childhood and normalcy that all the other characters lack.

    • Tee says:

      Yeah I absolutely loved seeing Alaric and Lexi. I was kinda hoping the veil would stay down for a while just for as much time as possible with those two.

      • MaryAnn says:

        Right now “The Vampire Diaries” really does need something to refresh it in terms of the casting, to renew interest, with all the Originals leaving. I can’t think of a better way of doing that than to bring back Lexi and Alaric, at least as recurring characters. The chemistry between Alaric and Damon in a bromance and between Lexi and Stefan as “best friends” was fantastic! And I can’t imagine that Silas-pretending-to-be-Stefan would be able to fool Lexi!

        Also, I’m wondering… I am betting that Lexi would have continued to ride with Stefan and keep an eye on him, even after she disappeared. Wouldn’t she know that he was underwater in a box, and be able to tell Bonnie, who could pass the word on to Jeremy?

        • sls says:

          Seriously. Now that we have Jeremy back who can see and talk with ghosts/people from the other side I really hope they address what you just mentioned about Lexi. I agree. She would have stayed around and watched over Stefan and she could go tell Jeremy herself about Stefan being in the safe in the river. Lexi and Jeremy were hanging out in the Salvatore mansion during graduation so they know each other.

    • Rook says:

      I would rather have had Lexi, but why would Bonnie bring her back? She loved Jeremy, it would be a no brainer choice.

      • lorna says:

        Love Lexi and Jeremy, but argh Ric needs to be back!So what, almost every dead character has reappeared on the show. Julie, work your magic and bring Matt D back on at least a semi regular basis. Still kids to look after and drinks to be had with Damon at the Grill, “his bar”.

  3. wrstlgirl says:

    You mean Elena’s actually going go to school? That’s a shock :-)

    • wrstlgirl says:

      to go to school…….gah.

    • Juliana says:

      i still can’t believe she was able to graduate!!!!!!!!!! lol

    • M3rc Nate says:

      I couldnt get over how dumb all the “WE HAVE TO GRADUATE! ITS ONCE IN A LIFETIME! THE BIGGEST MOMENT OF OUR LIVES!” crap lol. I mean they are dead, vampires that feed on blood and have killed people…and are immortal…so they can go to HS or College or w/e as many times as they want (like Stefan). Normal humans take a year off to travel or w/e…if you were a immortal vampire with super powers (speed, strength, compulsion)….wouldnt you compel a gang banger to rob a bank for you, become a millionaire, and travel the world and eventually go to a Ivy League college and get a masters in …w/e u want? Let alone why is Dameon at home with the brother? Why cant he go to college too? Or buy a property off campus and them (Elena and Dameon) live off campus together?

      Seems to me its going to feel very rip off-y when Dameon, Jeremy and the ghost are all living together…aka “Being Human” much? All they need is for is a werewolf to move in and its a total rip off.

      • jayne says:

        With the exception of Stefan. all of our graduates were kids that grew up in MF. They started this particular high school experience as humans with the kids they’d known their whole lives so IMO it makes sense that it would be a “once in a lifetime” experience. Yeah of course they could go to a different high school all over again, but this is the one and only time they can graduate as their human selves – that is, if none of them had turned supernatural they will still all have graduated together. I know high school graduation isn’t a big deal to heaps of people but maybe it’s a fitting way for our kids to farewell their human lives, from this point on any school they go to they attend is as never-aging vamps so the level of attachment they would have with it would be completely different (well, apart from Matt and Bonbon).

        I hope they never, ever turn Matt. He is perfect.

      • Cathy O. says:

        LMAO!

  4. Rose says:

    It doesn’t make sense that Katherine remains human!!
    All she needs, is to find a vampire to turn her again, end of problem!

    “It’s not the capper, per se. We’ll have to be more judicious with the moments between them. We’ll see.”
    Meaning we’ll see how the ratings for The originals go and if need be bring Caroline over there!

    • sls says:

      It probably won’t be that simple. There will most likely be some caveat to the cure that will mean you can never become immortal again or there will be some “waiting period” for being turned again.

      And as far as your other comment…regarding the ratings for Klaus and Caroline…you’re right….They will feel out the fans and see…..I think after the version of Klaus we got last night…more people are digging that couple. Not everyone likes them together but with lines like Klaus gave last night…whew…!!!…. That’s good stuff!

      • Rose says:

        Wow! A loophole? That’s new! ;)
        Yeah, I guess you’re right, they’ll come up with some stupid excuse as to why she has to stay human!

        • V. Cohea says:

          Elana will put her on permanent vervain and have Rebecca compel her so she can’t get any help from anyone LOL, they both despise Katherine so no problem.

      • kavyn says:

        I think it’ll be more along the lines of Katherine being too slow to run away or find a vampire willing to turn her back. She’s stuck with vampire Elena right now, all she has to do is call Damon and lock her up in their basement or something.

        The only other thing I can think of is that she’s been a vampire for so long and might not know how to adjust to human life well enough to think logically, or something.

        • Rose says:

          From other interviews I read, Katherine will still be causing trouble as a human, and I don’t see that happening if she’s locked up, that’s why I find it stupid that she doesn’t change back!

        • sls says:

          Could be. Everyone will be enjoying watching Katherine suffer so no one will want to turn her back. Still, seems silly to have a cure and it be so easy to get turned back to a vampire. Maybe it will be both, no one wanting to turn her and it wouldn’t work anyway if they did. With this show…who knows.

          • Ursula says:

            I read somewhere Katherine will have to choose between remaining human and risking death by trying to turn in to a vampire so I think when you’re cured of being a vampire you never can become one again

        • MaryAnn says:

          I am guessing that eventually Katherine will be turned back (can’t see her ever deciding she prefers to be human), but that for the time being, none of the vampires in Mystic Falls would be willing to do it. Damon, Elena, Caroline…did I miss anyone?

      • Cathy O. says:

        I agree with you on Klaus’ lines sis. That was almost as good as Delena. I am really liking the idea of Klaus and Caroline. I also loved how he came in right on time and saved the day. Did you notice how everyone seemed to be eavesdropping on Damon and Elena’s conversations though? I thought that was hilarious.

    • MaryAnn says:

      In another interview, Julie Plec said that Katherine likes living enough that she wouldn’t risk dying for real in the process of transitioning back to a vampire, that she would have to have vampire blood in her system, then die, and that she wouldn’t be willing to risk it. Apparently it is not a sure thing at all.

    • Kelly says:

      Even if she becomes a vampire again, she won’t be the most powerful vampire out of all of them. She used to be one of the older vamps on the show along w/ Pearl, Anna etc. In terms of strength, she’ll be weaker than Damon, Stefan, Elena, Caroline, Tyler etc etc. It’s not like she’d be able to take them on – not an equal playing field anyways.

  5. sls says:

    Jer and Damon as roomies…lol
    And why, Julie, why can’t you bring back Alaric… boohoo….seriously…we need him in our lives…

    Glad to see we won’t be jumping right back into making hybrids. Curious to see if Katherine doesn’t end up in a love triangle with Damon and Elena…She is going to seek help from the Salvatores so…that could be a disaster…or brilliant…lol…

    Silas/Stefan can’t drag out all season. Someone should be able to figure it out. Sounds like it will just be the beginning of the season so I think that’s good news.

    I’m happy about Damon/Elena but honestly I think I would rather Damon get Alaric back lol Those two need their own spin off. :)

    • Cathy O. says:

      I love Alaric and Damon together. I heard that Matt Davis would be willing to return permanently if he was a main character so I suppose they are not in need for that right now. But I didn’t know how much I missed him until he returned. And I didn’t think I would but I missed Jeremy too.

      • sls says:

        Well I hope that with Elena going off to college, and leaving Damon sort of behind in a long distance relationship, maybe the opportunity for more Alaric may present itself. Julie has to see how many people really want Alaric back and hanging out with Damon. But it’s probably wishful thinking.

  6. lorna says:

    Agreed about Ric. Big fan since the books and his first appearance onscreen. #resurrectric

    • lilly85 says:

      THIS. Isn’t the actor like out of work right now anyway? Like the other show he was on is no more?

    • Raver says:

      Yes please! I would like Alaric back! especially now that Cult is cancelled.. he is such a welcome edition.. I would trade Jeremy for Alaric in a heartbeat! Much more interesting character!

  7. lilly85 says:

    I was pretty much hoping and crossing my fingers that Lexi would come back. I’ll take Alaric second to that. I very much didn’t care when Jeremy was brought back to life. Seems like such a cop out to everything Elena went through. Lexi died far too soon and seeing her in flashbacks just isn’t the same. And Alaric is just awesome. The finale was very very awesome if I could just switch out Jeremy being alive for someone else. But Jeremy is the only one that Bonnie would care about that much to lay down her life. So, I get it but still….GRRRRR

  8. iMember says:

    No one has asked this in any interview that I’ve read, but is MATT GOING TO BE ON THE ORIGINALS WITH REBEKAH!? If not, then what’s going to happen to him next season?

    • Rose says:

      From what I know Matt will still be on TVD, with possible cross overs for him too I guess!

    • dinosaur! says:

      Argh, that’s been driving me crazy, too! I hope he doesn’t go over to The Originals because he’d become a lot more expendable (even more than he is on TVD). So what is his status? If he’s staying, can he see ghosts, or was his contact with Vicki one-time thing? And why won’t Jeremy be his roommate? He could probably use one!

      Or Stefan-Silas can move in. The way Stefan grabbed Matt’s ass during the group hug–maybe there’s something going on there. ;)

      And will Rebekah start on The Originals, or have a few episodes on TVD before moving over?

      • sls says:

        “The way Stefan grabbed Matt’s ass during the group hug–maybe there’s something going on there. ;)”

        Bhahahaha…..awesome!!!

        Silatt (Silas/Matt) or Stefatt (Stefan/Matt) ships all the way hehehehe

    • Brandi says:

      I too am very curious as to how this Rebekah & Matt road trip will turn out since she is starring on the originals… Will there be a crossover? Will this be how she ends up in New Orleans? I WANT TO KNOW!!! Rebekah has become one of my favorites! Im a huge Stelena fan but I loved the SteBekah storyline! I just really enjoy how she interacts with everyone!

  9. kay says:

    all of this is the opposite of what i want. i think i’m finally over this show

    ns2s but after this season, elena picking damon makes zero sense. and i fail to see why i should feel happy for damon finally getting the girl, he is a terrible person and is his own worst enemy. this was even addressed last night. she should just be single for awhile.

    • Rose says:

      It was even worse to hear Elena say that she already knew it would be her worst decision ever! So how does that makes sense? It only makes fans hate this character more than they already do!

    • soundscene says:

      Honestly, I think Damon’s got the vampire thing down pat. He’s always been a far better vampire than Stefan (as stated in the last episode); if anybody is his own worst enemy, it’s Stefan. He can’t find the right balance and so there is this huge risk he’ll slip back into his psychopathic serial killer ways. Stefan is all extremes and no middle ground–he’s either goody goody or completely evil. Not exactly boyfriend material.
      *
      Of course Damon has his own issues, but at least he’s consistent. He likes being a vampire and yes, he’s killed innocent people… to feed. Not for sport like evil Stefan. He’s a bit selfish and egocentric, but he’s also been generous and selfless towards Elena.
      *
      The choice Elena has given herself is Stefan (unreliable good guy/psychopathic killer) vs. Damon (consistent bad boy/non-psychopath). It’s not really much of a choice, but it’s one Elena apparently wants to make. Neither make sense in the real world; they both make sense in the confines of the show.

      • Fran says:

        Damon has not only killed innocent people to feed- he’s shown that he’s killed when he gets ticked off, so that’s killing for sport too. Both brothers show psychopathic tendacies but both are generous and selfless when it comes to Elena. Defending Damon this way is just as bad as the Stelena fans who ca’t admit that Stefan isn’t perfect either.

      • lorna says:

        Um he killed Vicki’s drug buddies for the hell of it, and her because he got bored with her. Many more instances, I’m sure. The Salvatore descendent, Zach…

      • Ursula says:

        Stefan didn’t kill for sport which Damon has done like Lexi and what about turning Viki then trying to kill caroline, trying to kill Bonnie he’s selfish he even says that countless times I think Elena and Stefan will find there way back to each other there’s no way they can’t

  10. CAN THIS THING WITH BONNIE NOT REVEALING TO HER “FRIENDS” THAT SHE’S DEAD BECAUSE GOD FORBID SHE INCONVENIENCE THEM NOT HAPPEN PLEASE

    FFS LET BONNIE PRIORITIZE HERSELF AND HER FEELINGS FOR A CHANGE STOP MAKING HER BE ELENA’S MAMMY

    • WhyItGottaBeBlack says:

      THIS!!! They have no idea what to do with her character! Didnt Bonnie’s grandma die because of Elena? Isnt her mother a vampire because of Elena? smh. When will Bonnie(the writers) actually conjure up some balls and give her something to work with. And why are her most powerful scenes generally alone and with no one to bounce off of. Other than characters standing around and looking confused.

  11. ruby says:

    Loved the finale!but why did they not keep lexie??love her so much!!am not a Delena fan,but that scene was amazing!STEFAN NEEDS a new GIRL,please bring in someone new and fresh(suggest Aubry from this years American idol).
    Am not invested in the silas/stefan ish cause I know it would be sorted out before the 6th episode of S5..sad we cudnt keep KOL.loved matt/Rebekkah scenes!
    Am a BEREMY fan,but was so sad that bonnie is partially dead.

  12. eloise says:

    Just saying I would LOVE if Lexie were the one to discover that Silas was Stefan. Mostly because I think Lexie makes the show so much better and obviously is the one that knows Stefan the best.

  13. eloise says:

    P.S. Thank you so much for the post-mortem. Love that y’all always have these. Julie Plec is the best!

  14. Heather says:

    Stefan being a doppleganger pretty much blew my mind last night! I did NOT see that one coming. I’m beginning to like Rebecca since she started working with Matt. That poor guy was thrown to the background but glad that someone took notice of him. Finally someone loves Damon. Woot, woot!

  15. sara says:

    So she just gets her brother back and decides it will be okay to have him live with someone he not only despises but who also killed him?! That’s love right there, makes about as much sense as her choosing to be with the man that killed her brother all b/c he was mad Katherine never really loved him (boohoo poor damon), or choosing to be with him b/c its gonna be the worst decision she ever makes!?!

    • Courtney E says:

      And you can’t believe that Damon has changed since then? Geez, the heart wants what the heart wants. You can’t help who you fall in love with! I personally don’t like either of the boys but still.

    • Babybop says:

      Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. You’re totally right!! The whole relationship seems a little backwards, doesn’t it?

    • Dmac says:

      And let’s not forget he slept with her mother, compelled her best friend to sleep with him as well as killed her brother…ah true love.

      • Julie says:

        I just want Damon to treat Jeremy like a human being! He has always been so nasty to him and Elena has never called him out on it. Not cool.

    • Sally says:

      Oh right but choosing to be with a guy that was willing to forget you even existed is way better.Also really?Selfish?So him saying that he doesnt deserve her but his brother does,telling her the truth about the cure and saying that his brother did everything for her,spending almost the whole season trying to get his brother back bcuz he owed him is selfish?You stelena fans amuse me.

      • jim says:

        Delena fans amuse me. You can say hes changed all u want- and I’m not disagreeing- but that doesn’t change the things he did to her. Yes wanting to forget their relationship because she slept with your brother right after u broke up…. that’s the same as snapping your brothers neck…..

        • Doppelganger says:

          You Stelena fans always crack me up when all you ever have to say is that Damon killed Jeremy way back at the beginning of season 2. Did you forget that Elena also killed Jeremy by stabbing him in the neck and the ring saved him then as well? Katherine is the only one to actually really kill Jeremy but now Bonnie has brought him back, yet again. So, please find something new to hate Damon for because that is old news. Damon is far from the only one to have killed Jeremy and he has long ago been forgiven for it by Elena.

          • jim says:

            The difference is that Damon knew what he was doing when he snapped Jeremy’s neck, yet he did it anyway. I’m not trying to argue that Elena forgave him for it- just saying that she’s an idiot and I think it’s sad. Just because it happened back in season 2 doesn’t make it any less disturbing. Plus it’s more than that. The way he controlled Caroline, the way he wanted to kill her when she became a vampire, never caring about Bonnie and also wanting to kill her at times, the way he constantly treats Jeremy like crap… And I LIKE Damon as a character, I just can’t ever buy a relationship with Elena. I don’t even want her with Stefan either. She’s whiny and annoying right now, and she drags both brothers down. Please don’t generalize that the only people that hate Delena must be Stelena fans. It’s just my opinion.

          • Screw Damon says:

            You delena fans are so stupid. The only reason Stephan turned bad was because of Damon. Damon is and idiot and got himself bit by Tyler and was dying. Stephan saved his life. And klaus compelled him to turn off his emotions. Making him be mean to Elena. Still going back to that being Damon’s fault. Damon is an ass hole who doesn’t deserve love. Remember every bad thing is Damon’s fault I personally loved Stephan and Elena together. I would love for them to get back together. But what she did to him. She broke his heart! Elena doesn’t deserve a guy like Stephan.

          • DAMON STEFAN & ELENA js says:

            well considering u can’t even spell STEFAN properly ur rlly proving ur point there -.- honestly i could care less if u don’t like damon and elena together or damon but honestly y do u have to bash ppl that do like grow up and if ur gonna say some1 is ur fave character at least spell his name properly, doesn’t rlly help ur case if u can’t spell it right even after reading the article

      • Tara says:

        The reason Stefan was trying to forget that she ever existed was to protect her from Klaus and save Damon u a**.

        • maxii!! says:

          just notice…. damon never got a chance with real love…. when it was with Katherine, it was like his life… when he found out that she loved stefan more, he felt like there won’t be any hope for him….. you can’t hate a guy for falling for a girl… can you stop your love for someone…. and stelena fans don’t say anything…. even though he has his humanity back, he just gave up on Elena, while the other times, she never gave up on him…. now it is her turn to give him up he just stops loving her, even though she loves him, just not IN love….. so i can’t blame Delena… If you love two people, choose the second one…. because if you were in love with the fist one, you wouldn’t love the second one!!! DELENA!!! ε:

  16. Rack says:

    What are they going to do now that the actors, who play Elena and Damon, broke up in real life?

    • melissamarion says:

      Ian and Nina´s relationship has nothing to do with what happens on screen!

      • Pam says:

        True, but it might change the chemistry between them onscreen. We will just have to wait and see I guess.

      • Mari says:

        It shouldn’t, but sometimes shows take into account keeping their actors happy—and having to pretend to be romantic with someone you broke up with is probably an extra special type of uncomfortable.

        • Katie says:

          It’s probably part of the reason that Delena are doing the long distance thing. Their onscreen relationship can still look like everything’s fine, and the actors won’t be forced to kiss or be romantic with each other that much.

    • soundscene says:

      As long as the two are not hating each other, it shouldn’t be a problem. On Dawson’s Creek, the writers put Joey and Pacey together right as Joshua Jackson and Katie Holmes broke up. And, to hear Katie speak of it, Josh was basically her first everything, so that had to burn a little. Still, the two had amazing chemistry, even though they acknowledged their initial scenes together were awkward. Didn’t show.

  17. Masearte says:

    I loved it! Totally unexpected the Stefan/Silias storyline will definitely be interesting doesn’t that mean Silias is related to the Salvatore’s? I’m sure they will explain that in S5, the Katherine being human was brilliant cant wait to see how she adjusts as a vamp. Also all my afv couples happened hurray! Matt/Rebecca, and Klaus and Caroline well sort of I feel so sad for Stefan but so happy for Damon it was obvious Elena would pick Damon, and honestly if watching from S1 to know it makes perfect sense, i just hope Stefan finds somone else and they give this triangle a rest, cuz its getting annoying plenty of good storylines and charcters to explore anyways can’t wait for S5 and the originals it’s gonna be a long wait.

  18. Tobi says:

    Can’t they find a way to just bring back Lexi, alric, and kol! I’m glad Elena’s finally chosen someone no more triangle! And kathrine being human is gonna be fun to watch.

  19. c says:

    Julie Plec didn’t decide to make Elena choose Damon because she wanted to see the stupid dynamic. Give me a break! She was catering to the mass of one particular ship. That’s it. Grow a pair JP and at least own your jacked up decision to do it and dont feed the rest of us, who could give a crap about how “sexy” Ian Somerhalder is, a load of BS.

    • Lena says:

      First, correct me if I’m wrong, isn’t there a triangle in the books? Second, Julie is just catering to Delena fans? Really? Sorry, but Julie “catered” to stelena long enough and now that she is going another direction with the story, stelena fans are upset. After all, the show is just about Elena and Stefan and nobody else right? Damon didn’t exist in the books, right? Yeah…Some people are never pleased unless shows go in the direction they want. Enjoy next season… :)

  20. melissamarion says:

    I love how Stefan has been prepared to take off in a completely new direction, but I do hope that eventually he ends up back with Elena. I´d also love to see the relationship betwen Caroline and Klaus develop but I think with The Originals this could be difficult.

  21. MaryAnn says:

    Vlada, the next time you have the opportunity to interview Julie, could you please ask her exactly what a “doppleganger” is? We all know they are a double, of course, but what are the rules for dopplegangers in her universe? How are they formed, and are there certain magical rules for them? I gather they are born, but why would they look like the person they are a doppleganger to? Is it just random genetics popping up? I’m asking because all the other supernatural beings in her universe are in many different sources, and we have an idea what they are, but not dopplegangers, not in the way she has presented them as being the double of a magical being, with special magical properties.

  22. Courtney E says:

    Is it bad that I want them to cancel the Originals? I just want Klaus and Caroline together. I’m pretty sure the Originals is going to get in the way of that… Also I love the Matt/Rebekah dynamic.

  23. Richard says:

    I reckon katherines blood will have cure stamped all over it for ne other vampires. an i also think that silas before finding out this will mess round with katherine while she thinks he stefan.

  24. E.N. says:

    Was an amazing finale! Katherine getting the cure was brilliant! Elena finally choosing Damon was epic, such an intense scene! People are hating on Damon because of things he did in the past, completely disregarding the fact that he has changed and developed since then because of his growing relationship with Elena. Yes, he did horrible things – Elena even admitted it – but he has changed, and one thing that cannot be contested is that he truly loves Elena. He did not take advantage of her at all this season, even when aware of her sire bond to him. Sure, he’s not perfect, but he’s not a monster either. Give the dude a break.

    I feel pretty sorry for Stefan. I honestly think he should find another girl and move on with his life and be happy. This love triangle is not doing him any good.

    Can’t wait to see what’s in store for all the characters in season 5.

    Ps. Klaus is adorable – his moment with Caroline was so sweet.

  25. Egyptianchick says:

    Shut up about Jeremy coming back! If he didn’t come back, Elena would be a mess, it took Jeremy coming back to finally end Elena’s shell. That poor girl has been through too much.. Read the directors commentary! he had to die for a reason as he has to live for a reason! Just bc you like ric and Lexi doesn’t mean it’s better for them to come back… The story wouldn’t make sense if Jeremy wasn’t back. He shouldn’tve died in the first place! His death was a cop out to begin with!

  26. InewtoTVD says:

    This was the best episode of TVD! period… I am a person who does not get emotional about fictional characters and their story lines. However, I actually had tears falling during the Damon and Elena scene (yippee) and my mouth dropped during the Stefan and Silas ending. And came to the conclusion that the Stefan character was never a great character. But the Silas/Stefan character? Now that’s awesome. Enjoyed the Caroline and Klaus scene. It was like Klaus is the “Originals” version of Damon, and Caroline is his Elena, and Tyler is the Stefan of the triangle..Oh, and a human Katherine? lol Love it! With all this being said. Looking forward to watching season 5 :)

  27. heather says:

    I’m so happy Elena chose Damon. He will finally know what its like to feel loved. I’m definitely missing the Alaric and Damon bromance. Happy Stefan is finally gonna get a real storyline other than him be Judgy Mc Judgy pants all the time. Liking Rebekah and Matt. Loved Klaus’s line to Caroline about being her last loved. It made my mouth Drop but nothing compared to Damon’s facial expression when ELena told him she loved him……Great episode and Glad we got to see some familiar faces. Hopefully we will see Alaric alive again soon too.

    • Cathy O says:

      I agree. Damon’s facial expression was priceless. I am so happy they are together and I hope they stay together. Excellent episode and can’t wait for next season.

  28. ggny says:

    Not one question about which show Rebekah is gonna be on? I really hope it TVD with Matt and not The Originals

  29. wc says:

    I loved the finale, but everybody keeps saying that Silas and Stefan are doublegangers, why? I took it as Silas talking the form of Stefan and Stefan is trapped at the bottom of the quarry. At some point someone will figured it out(probably late season). Can’t wait till the next season.

    • ummmmm says:

      Heres your answer to you question, last few mins of the show.

      Silas: It doesn’t matter, does it? And here’s where the mystery of me comes full circle. I created the immortality spell two thousand years ago. I can never die, so Nature needed to find a balance – a version of me that could die. A shadow-self – a doppelgänger.

      Stefan: So, this is finally your real face? You’re another one of them?

      Silas: Not exactly.

      [Silas’ reflection in the car window shows a face identical to Stefan’s, and Silas takes on his true form.]

      Silas: Hello, my shadow-self.

  30. Kyarah says:

    Is stelena really I wanna no I’m going to pull out my hair then burn it if they don’t get back together and if Stefan comes back and she feels nothing for him a swear I going to send a yucky letter to the producers I’m sorry but in the last part when Elena told him that he always gets the short part of the stick to vampirism well he gets the short part of the stick with love to see kathrine Damon got her Elena Damon got her I was so upset when she said that I thought that Stefan and Elena were star crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet material but without the dying at the end but a love like that can’t just poof and go away Elena is the love of Stefan life and if she can’t see then it should be here in the safe locked up in the middle of a lack but don’t she dare tell Stefan that he’s getting the shorter end of stick by being a vampire cause he GETS IT WITH EVERYTHING why can’t the just be happy with Elena and Damon find someone else oh ya before I forget why didn’t the girl with the English accent come back the one the Damon loved but then got bitten by a werewolf and dies?

    • MaryAnn says:

      This post is the classic example of the “run-on sentence” and why it shouldn’t be used. I tried to wade through the post, I honestly did. But it was just impossible. Sorry, it just wasn’t worth the time it would take to edit it into sentences to make it readable.

      • Dmac says:

        Obviously English isn’t her first language and I am sorry, I didn’t realize we elected you grammar police.

        • MaryAnn says:

          Well, many, many people make grammar and spelling errors, and I don’t comment, since it really doesn’t matter in the long run as long as their posts are readable. This post was not readable, and the biggest loser is the poster, since a lot of people are going to give up half-way through.

          And I don’t think it is obvious at all that English is not her first language. The paragraph read to me just the opposite, that English WAS her first language.

          At any rate, my point is that it is much easier to understand what someone is saying if they don’t keep running through an entire paragraph with no breaks, and no way of telling what thought goes with what.

    • sue says:

      This is so true. Damon always gets what he wants. Stefan always the one left dry. Y?

      • Sally says:

        Damon is the one that gets what he wants?Have you not been paying attention to the last 4 seasons?

        • Cathy O says:

          I agree. Damon never gets what he wants Stefan is the golden child which is why he behaves like a spoiled brat when he does not get his way. Elena choosing Damon is the time Damon has ever gotten what he wants and I hope they stay together.

          • Ursula says:

            Stefan does not act like a spoilt brat when he doesn’t get what he wants “I’m not happy Elena, but that doesn’t mean I’m not happy for you” even my husband was annoyed about Delena since series 1 it has been all about their love and now what suddenly she’s in love with Damon it would never work

  31. Savannah says:

    I’m really happy that Jeremy is back! Although I’m not quite sure what this season has in store for him. I was really shocked about Stefan being Silas’ Doppleganger! I really hope they find him soon ): and as far as Bonnie being a ghost, I hope she is able to connect and talk to other ghosts on her side such as Alarc and Lexi (maybe even revive some of them! Like she did to Jeremy!) so they won’t be completely cut out of the show! I’m so excited for this upcoming season (:

  32. NAN says:

    I loved the scene between Klause and Caroline…so touching and it leaves so much open for the new season. Still, what is happening to Matt? Will he be back or in the new series or is he gone off the show? Very interesting that Elena’s and Katherine’s roles are now reversed too!!

  33. Annabelle says:

    I’m so glad Caroline finally gets Tyler back. They both deserve to be happy with each other after all they have been through.

  34. Rook says:

    I really don’t like Tyler, I was so glad when he left. His character sucks and drags Caroline down, can they please get ride of him!

    • MaryAnn says:

      Tyler was a despicable person at the beginning of the series — a spoiled and selfish frat boy. But later on he changed, and was really selfless, in love with Caroline and always trying to do the right thing. He and Caroline have been through a lot together, and deserve their chance to be happy.

      • Meredith says:

        Yes, it’s super selfless to hold your girlfriend hostage and let your hybrid friends almost kill her while you further your revenge agenda.

    • Radha says:

      How in the heck does Tyler drag Caroline down? But Klaus, who is a freakin’ psychopath (and an unattractive one at that), is a better choice for her? Just what? Because he says he likes her? Okay, sure. Team Lockwood all the way. Tyler was a jerk in season 1 but he’s come a LONG way, and, at least he doesn’t try to kill everyone Caroline loves just for sport or because it’s a Tuesday.

      • Rose says:

        I understand if you don’t like Klaus character but to call Joseph Morgan unattractive makes me think you need a pair of glasses, love!

  35. Courtney says:

    Not sure why but I’m in love with klaus’ character. He’s a horrible person but you can tell he is in love with Caroline and everything he does for her is so heart melting. Damon has my full heart though. My one love (:

  36. Jj says:

    So remember how the blood of the doppelganger is a powerful bonding agent in a spell? Silastefan is going to try to use Katherine’s blood to make some kind of cure!! I just have a feeling that they will turn the whole doppelganger thing full circle.

  37. Alex says:

    How are the characters going to explain Jeremy’s sudden reappearance in Mystic Falls?

    “Oh, yeah, remember how the Gilbert house burned down with Jeremy’s body inside, and we have a funeral with a place at the family plot in the cemetery for him and everything? Just kidding!”

    Or I guess they could always go the Jesus route…

    Either way, the residents of Mystic Falls can’t possibly be as dumb as everyone thinks they are, can they? I mean, at least the high schoolers of Sunnydale recognized Buffy in season 3, and we’re now about to be on season 5 of TVD. Let’s at least recognize the janitors who have to clean up after every fight, show-down, battle royale, etc. at the high school. I’m just saying…

    • Rose says:

      Well since the last scene was pratically ripped from Angel, Julie could decide to take one from Buffy too…..;)

      • Katie says:

        Buffy enthusiasts really irritate me to death. Buffy was a fantastic show (Angel sucked – pun completely intended – for the most part) but it’s as though people who watched Buffy refuse to accept that sometimes things just happen that are alike. They’re *vampires*. There are only so many ways to get rid of them that isn’t killing them or keeping them captured (which they have already done on VD, a few times, actually – Katherine being trapped in the cave with Stefan, Katherine being trapped and tortured by Klaus, Klaus being trapped in the Gilbert home). Dropping Stefan in the water keeps him alive and out of sight until he’s needed again. So stop whining that “VAMPIRE DIARIES STOLE A TEN SECOND IDEA FROM ANGEL!!!!111″ because Buffy/Angel ended *nine* years ago. And please don’t get me wrong, okay. I do respect Buffy for creating amazing characters, and cutting edge dialogue, and I can get absolutely nutty about my fandoms too (you should hear me talk about Supernatural or Once Upon a Time, but don’t you think it’s fair for the comparisons to retire so that those that were either too young for, or not interested in, Buffy to get to watch a show they love without people coming around to bring them down with “Your show isn’t as good as mine because it was here first.” It’s ridiculous.

        • Rose says:

          I only wrote one sentence, you’re the one who whined I’m afraid!
          And Angel didn’t suck, except for baby line story (oops another rip off!) ;)
          I agree that tv shows can have similiar ideas (there are so many of them it would be impossible not to) but I don’t agree that fans shouldn’t compare them and point out when the similairity is pratically a fist in the eye!

        • lorna says:

          Um, I understand similarities to B/A, but TVD KEEPS using EXACTLY the same s/s: the coffinin the ocean, a direct threat about ripping a ribcage out and wearing it as a hat, when Stefan wanted the sun to come up and kill him and THEN it snowed- s3 of Buffy, the baby sl….yes, some of these are interesting, and I love JP, but it is somewhat constant. So suck it, Katie. Your post really irritates me to death.

    • Mari says:

      I think Sunnydale syndrome had nothing on the Mystic Falls mindwipe–most of the vampires couldn’t mess with brains. If nothing else, they tell everyone that someone else must’ve been in the house, and Jeremy had been on some sort of spiritual retreat. He and Elena had had a fight about something, and he came back as soon as he heard. In the meantime, the vampires compel a few people and it’s official.

  38. Maki says:

    The are a lot of issues to “FIX”! But I believe they will find a sudden and good explanations. Jeremy’s reappearence can be solved with compulsion. Damon, Elena and Caroline will do it in no time.
    I love the Silas mess up and the evil one intergrating into group will be fun to observe. But it will most likely explode into his face in the first 2 episodes.
    Human Katarina will be a nice take on. Could see her get protection by the only live Hunter.
    A lot to do. . . and they can do it right.

  39. Fernanda says:

    Dawson’s Creek all over again. Pacey got Joey and now Damon gets Elena. Big Surprise from a Kevin Williamson’s series

    • Leslie says:

      OMG, get out of my head! I have been saying basically this same thing since around the end of season 2/beginning of season 3. DE will be together and be endgame at the end of this series because it’s just like Dawson’s Creek where KW put Joey and Pacey together forever. That angered me to no end. That’s why I’m totally prepared this time with TVD.

      • Cas says:

        Sounds amazing to me. Dawson was a douche bag and I was so happy Joey ended up with Pacey. Stefan isn’t a douche bag though he is just not who Elena is in love with at this time.

  40. Stelenafan says:

    S5 WILL BE AN EPIC SHOWDOWN BUT POOR STEFAN!!!!!

  41. Emma says:

    Delena fans please don’t yell at me for posting this. It’s not because I am a Stelena fan, which I’m not. They made Elena’s character so unsufferable this year that I honestly don’t know why anyone would want her. That being said, if I ship anyone, it’s Team Salvatore for me all the way. My point is that I just will never support or understand a relationship between Damon and Elena. It’s too disturbing for me. I understand that his character has changed over the seasons and I think it would be fine for them to be friends… but a romantic relationship? I just can’t grasp that. For me it’s because of the awful things that Damon has done to those that Elena loved. Killing Elena’s brother because he was turned down by her… that’s just unforgivable to me No he didn’t actually die but he was just lucky Jeremy was wearing the ring. I can get past the way he treated Caroline and the fact that he slept with her birth mother- after all her mother was before he knew her and he obviously changed since treating Caroline the way that he did. But killing Jeremy? I just can’t understand how you get past that. And before anyone says it, yes, Stefan has done horrible things too. I’m not defending that and the scene on the wickery bridge with Elena was horrible, but at least he had a reason for the change in personality. Ripper Stefan is beside my point as well. Stefan has killed a ton of people, Damon has killed a ton of people…. obviously they are both terrible in that way and you can’t defend that. But I feel that Damon has done more horrible things towards the ones that Elena loves and his actions had a much greater negative impact on her life. I love Damon as a character but not as a romantic lead for Elena. That’s just my opinion and I know not everyone will agree with me.

    • Rose says:

      I agree on Elena! She has become such a whiny pain in the a** that I find myself rooting for her to die!
      For me both brothers would be better off without her, but since they both see her as the love of their life…I would be okay with her choosing Damon (even if it makes no sense at all!) if I knew this was the end of the triangle for good! But of course it’s not, julie would never lose risking for good the stelena fanbase! So when s05 starts we’ll have Elena having doubts once more…….and the triangle will live on!!!!

      • Emma says:

        Okay I agree with you there- the triangle ending would be such a blessing :) But I know we all know better. I was really hoping that Elena would choose to be by herself for awhile and have an actual storyline without either brother. They can revisit it again later (which we know they would) but give me a reason for the brothers to keep fighting for Elena. Give her some depth.

        • Rose says:

          Depth in Elena? You’re asking for the impossible ;)
          When she turned into a vampire I thought that we would finally have a strong independent Elena, instead she was even more whiny then ever!
          And the most lol moment of the finale was her, telling Stefan that he was the worst vampire among them and so he should take the cure!

    • Tara says:

      Thank u, I agree.

    • Tara says:

      @Emma, I agree 100%.

  42. shalom says:

    I’m just speculating here, but what if Elena is who Silas was in love with (Or at least her essence that keeps being reborn as a doppelganger.) Think about it, Stephan called Elena “The One” in the finale, and he is Silas doppelganger… shouldn’t that mean something?! Also Elena IS a doppelganger, so what if before Silas’ love died he did something to make her somewhat immortal. It would help explain why her blood could make hybrids. Also, Stephan’s love for Elena was so strong and unique that he was able to break out of Klaus’ compelling for her. I feel like this should say something about the depth of their relationship. I really hope this is what happens b/c I even though I’ve been rooting for daemon the whole time, her choosing didn’t feel right. Actually her choosing Daemon sent me the other direction. I’m not ready for this triangle to end quite yet!!!!

  43. Penelope says:

    Not too chuffed about Delena.. Hopefully the next season changes my mind!

  44. donnette says:

    im happy Jeremy is back and all but why Bonnie had to die? Silas is still alive now with Bonnie gone who is going to get rid of him? she better come back. and someone has to save Stefan he cant died of wat ever is going to happen to him. and my love Damon he got the girl so happy for him and also Klaus i wud say he kinda got Caroline. Rebekah finally got Matt in her arms. love the season finale but hated when Bonnie had to go.

  45. Stelena says:

    NOOOO! NO! NO! when Damon and Elena ended up together, i said i would never watch vampire diaries again, (because as much as I don’t like her, or how she bouces from one brother to the other, Stefan deserves her! He does nothing but try to protect her) but when Silas locked up Stefan and threw him in the water, that was definately something that shouldn’t have happened..

    • Gabs says:

      This is it. Exactly what I felt, I cried do damn much with Stefan leaving, and Damon saying… I got the girl. REALLY? Even if Your Brother is leaving to a suicide mission and you just turned your back at him and just talked to him when he called you? I swore to myself I wouldn’t watch this again, but I remembered Katherine, and Silas/stefan. So I truly hope they find a way to save Stefan quickly. And I totally agree with what was said, love doesn’t disappear like magic, who used the obbiviate spell in Elena? And why it was so easy, without any crying for her to tell Stefan goodbye and WTH tell him he is the worst vampire of them???? Ok now tell me something that made sense in this choice.

      • Stelena says:

        I agree! I felt sorry for stefan! As childish as it may sound, stefan got her first! He watched over her for years, whereas damon just swopped in unannounced and took her. This makes me want to believe that Delena’s just happening for views! And that stefan and elena will end up together anyway! JP just wants to draw in more people to watch TVD, but I think its doing the opposite, and leading us away (even though we know delena won’t last, we can’t bear to watch it).

        • Was a fan says:

          I understand everyone has their own opinions about Stefan and Elena vs. Damon and Elena because we are all different. I do like Damon…. That being said, personally, I will not watch live episodes of season 5 unless I hear that Stefan and Elena are back together. Or at the very least Elena and Damon are broken up. I am just that stubborn and have stopped watching other shows over the years for dramatically messing with my favorite characters. Then I will have to somehow get caught up if that ever happens. I loved TVD (especially season 1) so I am sad but I think I may be done with it forever. I know that sounds really pathetic but I don’t like shows that make me as mad/sad as this does, if it is the endgame for the brothers and Elena. This is just one persons choice because I only want Elena (not the whiney version) with Stefan as an endgame. But I TRULY hope the rest of the: Stefan, Damon, and general TVD fans enjoy season 5.
          BTW I believe Paul has always been credited before Ian, in the credits :)

          • Cas says:

            I’m fairly sure they credited him first because we were introduced to him first which is how other shows work sometimes. Either way, it is pretty much people like you who ruin shows so I am glad you aren’t watching. The writers should be allowed to show us Elenas joruney regardless of where it leads but then you get the fans who can’t handle it and cry about it until they get their way.

          • Jules says:

            That’s really not very nice. I don’t think this poster was whining about anything, they were just gibing their opinion. Nothing wrong with that even if u think its a stupid one to have.

  46. Mila says:

    I’m a Damon fan, whatever his done, damn it Stefan was no good either, none of them were, their vampires, duh! That being said, I think in the end, Elena is gonna choose Stefan. so I’m gonna enjoy Delena, as long as it lasts. Oh, BTW, I will never get tired saying…. Please, please (again) bring Alaric back… how much it will cost? I have money and I’m more than willing to pay, lol!!

  47. sue says:

    Damon and Elena really. That’s so wrong in so many levels. The scene was a joke.not really a fan of either bt you can see she belongs to stefan. Klaus. Yummmmy. Awesome scene. Would like to see lexi back

  49. ec says:

    Steroline: my first ship and why I’m shipping it. Originally, when hints of that possibility started to surface, my first thoughts were, “ewwww, please no.” But I’ve found myself more and more drawn to them. They just seem to bring out the best in each other. Stefan is pretty unbearable when he’s with Elena (or when he’s thinking about how he’s not with Elena) – he’s just in a constant melodramatic state of blood brooding. Seeing him opine for someone who never seems to actually make him happy is depressing. I think he laughs and smiles more with Caroline than any other character on the show. And as for Caroline’s other choices – Tyler? personally Tyler bores me to tears, and while I know that staying and facing Klaus would probably mean certain death, it’d be nice if he showed at least an inclination to stay and fight for Caroline.

    And Klaus? Klaus isn’t just a murderer (in a show where pretty much every major character has committed at least one murder, it’s almost forgivable – at least through the lens of TV fantasy. If a little manslaughter can’t be overlooked, fans would have a pretty hard time finding a character to like on the Vampire Diaries.) But actual abuse – Klaus–type manipulation and emotional torture and punishment of someone he supposedly loves? Please, Caroline, do not degrade yourself by entertaining that idea. I’d lose so much of the respect I’ve gained for that character if she went all gooey and lovestruck because the show’s biggest jerk says “But, babe, I love you – can you just forgive me wearing your boyfriend’s skin and trying to trick you into sleeping with me (let’s call this one attempted rape, because she did not consent to Klaus), trying to kill your friends, compelling your bud Stefan to go on a murder spree cause it entertained me , murdering your boyfriend’s mom, forcing him to leave town or die, etc, etc, etc?” Seriously, I have some concern for the future of feminism in general if young girls today see Klaus as a good match for a strong-willed, independent, intelligent woman. (forgive the rant – I love this show, but the way it glosses over issues like consent and abuse is sometimes a problem for me.)

    Anyway, it’d be nice to see Caroline with someone who’s an actual good guy. I get that the friendship thing is an issue for some, a hookup changes the game when characters share a strong platonic bond. But I happen to think loving, caring friendships sometimes blossom into great romances, especially having been built on a strong foundation of mutual caring and respect. And at this point, betraying Elena isn’t an issue – Stefan doesn’t owe her anything after she left him for his brother, and Elena’s with the guy spent some of the first season compelling Caroline back into bed after she discovered his face gets all blood-hungry and tried to escape. Again, the show washed this over, but sex without consent is called rape (seriously, Julie Plec, you are sending some super bad messages to young women with some of this stuff). Caroline is essentially watching her friend in a relationship with her rapist. So, I don’t think Elena is in any position to dictate who Caroline can be with. So I say, bring on the Caroline/Stefan feels.

    • Rose says:

      Did you hear Stefan say that Elena is the love of his life, and he’d go back to her in a heartbeat?!
      And that’s who you want Caroline with?! Don’t get me wrong, I love Stefan to bits but Caroline deserves better than to be the second choice, whom he would leave the second Elena beckoned him!
      Caroline deserves to have an epic love of her own, where she’s put first always and Klaus (who has done horrible things, but ALL of them have) does that! He loves her enough to give her back Tyler. Loves her more than he hates him and is willing to wait for her as long as it takes!!!

      • ec says:

        I like Lexi’s take on that – you get more than one. Yeah, I wouldn’t want to see Caroline with someone who considered her a second-best option – I’d want Stefan to get over Elena (I’d want this regardless, cause Stefan is such a boring, brooding, miserable character with Elena). And Klaus is just a psychopath. I take back the rape comment – I forgot that he was the one who stopped it – but he’s still just terrible. He doesn’t just do bad things, he’s a bad person. I’m also in the minority of show-watchers who thinks he’s terribly unattractive (the over-pronounced brow just reminds me of the geico cavemen).

        • Ursula says:

          I’m not particularly attracted to Klaus but he is charming and I love Stefan he’s not boring at all

    • Meredith says:

      We were clearly watching different versions of the same episode if you think Klaus as Tyler tried to “rape” Caroline. She was the one trying to jump his bones and he is the one who stopped it. After he came out of hiding to save her life. Go back and rewatch.

      • MaryAnn says:

        She thought he was Tyler. If Klaus had had sex with Caroline while she thought he was Tyler, that would have been rape, regardless of who jumped who. So at least Klaus had the decency to back away.

        • Meredith says:

          That’s my point. He backed away, he wasn’t trying to trick her into having sex. She initiated the making out and he stopped it.
