Vampire Diaries EP on Katherine's 'Final' Move, Damon's Salvation, Forwood's Future and More

Vampire Diaries Season 5The Vampire Diaries returns from its post-Olympics hiatus tonight (8/7c on The CW), but for Katherine, the games have just begun.

With an already damaged Damon now infected with Dr. Wes’ virus, Stefan and Katherine (whom he still thinks is Elena) embark on a life-saving road trip. But first, a sexy detour!

“Katherine being Katherine, the master manipulator, she contrives these reasons for [her and Stefan] to get a hotel room, and get the shower running,” executive producer Caroline Dries tells TVLine. “She basically decides, ‘Today’s the day I’m going to make my move on Stefan Salvatore.’”

And while many fans will enjoy the encounter — Dries says “Katherine is at her sexiest” and refers to it as “basically fan fiction” — make no mistake, there will be hell to pay for it in the coming weeks.

“Elena will ultimately return to the show, back to her friends and her old life, but there will be the fallout from everything Katherine left in her wake,” Dries says. “Just when he seemed to finally be getting over Elena and starting to heal, Katherine stormed into his life and reopened that wound.”

Dries also discusses Matt’s biggest threat, Caroline’s future with Tyler, her lingering feelings — or lack thereof — for Klaus and the possibility of another Originals crossover before Season 5 comes to a close.

TVLINE | Even before getting infected, Damon was headed down a dark path. What, or who, will it take to bring him back?
It’s not going to be an easy road for Damon to come back, because what he did was pretty bad. What we’re trying to explore is, now that Stefan is moving on from Elena after this whole Katherine chapter closes, he’s trying to figure out the next big movement in his life. And since his brother needs him more than ever, Stefan will be the one to kind of pick him up — in a very Stefan kind of way.

TVLINE | I imagine Stefan and Damon will have very different reactions when they discover that Elena is really Katherine.
They definitely will, but their shock of discovering that it’s Katherine will be trumped by the fact that they need to figure out how to get Elena back. That’s the more urgent thing, so ultimately, they have to figure out how to mastermind the master manipulator. It becomes a ‘Katherine vs. our heroes’ kind of storyline, which is very fun.

vampire-diaries-groupTVLINE | When Katherine does eventually leave Elena’s body, will she really be gone forever? Or is there a chance she could jump into someone else‘s body next?
That’s something everyone will have to wait and see, but I will say that what happens with that is something we’ve never done on the show before. It’s pretty final.

TVLINE | What about Nadia? If Katherine goes away, will her daughter still have a purpose?
Yes, Nadia will have a purpose. As Katherine is outed by our friends — the show’s heroes — her relationship with Nadia becomes the most important thing in her life, so you’ll see how that works out.

TVLINE | Could Matt also have something to do with that purpose? I’m sensing sparks between them.
Nadia, like Katherine, has always had a little thing for Matt. Maybe it just got passed through the genes. To Nadia, Matt is human. He’s just a good guy. He’s everything that Nadia’s not, although she might actually be good if she wasn’t so hellbent on finding her mom throughout time. So she can’t help but feel like Matt is this good person, like a wounded puppy. She’s not sure what to do with him. He’s also harboring this huge secret now, and she doesn’t want to kill him, but she will if she has to.

TVLINE | Based on previews, it looks like Tyler and Caroline are slowly becoming friends again. Any chance they’ll become more than friends again?
For now, they’re still working on their friendship, since Tyler was so offended by the fact that she slept with Klaus. And it’s not just the sexual element of it; Klaus represents everything that’s ruined Tyler’s life in the past few years. So Caroline feels terrible that she’s done this to Tyler, but she’s also a strong woman, so she’s perfectly capable of feeling bad about it without Tyler reminding her every five seconds about what she did. They still have some kinks to work out before they can even become friends.

TVLINE | And just to clarify, does she still have feelings for Klaus, or did she just need to get that out of her system?
Personally, I think she needed to get it out of her system. When they had their scene, she made it pretty clear she never wanted to see him again, so in that sense, she needed to get it out of her system. … It feels like she’s closed the book on that.

TVLINE | Any chance for another crossover with The Originals before the end of the season?
I don’t think we have anything in the works right now. There’s something special we’re trying to do, but I don’t know if it’s going to pan out, so I won’t spoil it.

    Why are you guys always choosing tyler plus caroline? Dont u get it? Since the begining of their relationship, Caroline love tyler too much, while tyler never loved her enough. Caroline is better off without tyler. Besides stefan is moving on from elena (single now) stefan plus caroline hook up wil be great. “What do you think?”

    If you hate the acting so much stop watching and stop bitching on here. I actually really like this show it’s my opinion that’s why I watch the show don’t like it don’t watch it and I do find it funny how you think they’re such bad actors so why do you know them by name e.g Ian and Nina

  3. Mollie says:

    Absolutely love this whole series!!! Think they’re getting better every time! All of my friends that I’ve told to watch it love it as well and are starting to watch the old series to catch up to date! As for Ian Somerholder I think he’s a great actor and definitely a amazing person! All the animal charity’s he’s set up and rescues! He’s a massive animal fan and anyone who loves animals is respectable in my eyes! Yes he smirks and grins a lot but god he’s good at it and he does a lot more than that! He’s one of the best actors on the show!

    Damon is hot. Katherine is dead and elena and damon are over. Tyler, i hope, is dead. Klaus and caroline belong together. Stefan is going to meet his last dobble gagger. Live, a knew witch, is almost killed by elena and is a trader trying to kill our heros.elena almost dies with the lethal ripper virus. Damon and elena are cured of the virus by enzo. Elena has no more dobble gaggers of herself, as far as we know.

  5. Ian says:

    Uhhh enough with the elena already. I love tvd but it it becoming seriously deprived of a good storyline. Julie plec get some directing skills already. And no im not hating on the forum love tvd just needs to do a whole lot better. The delena srltelena love triang like are making me sick already. Wat about bonnie she contributed a whole lot to tvd and the survival of all the characters but, look where shes been. Isnt it odd that every female main character in the story has more than multiple loves, but bonnie only really has jeremy, jamie please her moms adopted brother hace you ever considered damon and bonnie for a try come on just imagine dont hate just imaggine a love/hate relationship look on youtube or tumblr or even just searxh their names on together and se what happens or someone else it doesnt even have to be damon,and bonnie. Bonnie helps but shes always the one that suffers but, uet shes suplosed to come in and save the day. Nobodys evem talking about her when was the last time elena and caroline and bonnie talked except after bonnie came back from the dead. Just th ink and respectively voice out ur opionions!!!

    i think that klaroline shouldnt come to an end, in all honestly i think alot of people myself included like the idea of klaus and caroline falling in love and as for stefen and elena, i think it would be better for stefen to find another love and let his brother get the girl for once. Stefen is a great good guy and he deserves way better than an indecisive school girl.

    I think Tyler and Caroline should get back together because they are the cutiesss couple EVER!!!!

  10. jamia01 says:

    I think that katherine should be permenetly gone. I think that tyler and caroline can be friends but caroline and klaus should be together. And once klaus and caroline r together he would turn even softer

  11. Janet breunig says:

    Yes Caroline & tyler should rekindle there love. They have been thru so much with her turning into a vampire and Tyler finding he has the werewolf gene from his father. They both made decisions that damaged their relationship, but they have the love.

  12. Maddie says:

    I wish Katherine didn’t take over Elena because she broke Damon’s heart and I really really really hope (I haven’t finished season 5 yet) that when Elena comes back then she and Damon could have a happily ever after because Delena is perfection and I’m scared for what’s gonna happen next 😁😂

  13. Marilyn Dennis says:

    I was so happy when Elena and Damon finally got together. They had to ruin it all this last season and then took Damon out of the show. They have totally ruined it.
