XXYahoo TV has a feature called Office Drop-By – “Our series in which Hollywood’s creative greats in entertainment show us around their workspaces” – and this time around they visit Julie Plec in her Los Angeles offices.

This a must-read article if you want insight not only into how Julie oversees three shows, but the particulars of bringing that show to your screen every week. Also there are photos featuring other familiar faces, and you can the skeleton of what I assume is a former employee kept in Michael Narducci’s office.

“Let’s just say today we’re starting to break a new episode, which means we are in the process of finishing the one that precedes it. We make a list, we look at a blank board, and we make [another] list, and we say, ‘OK. Where did we end the previous episode? What do we owe from all the episodes we’ve done?’ Make that list. Make sure there’re no threads dangling, characters that haven’t been seen for a while.

What do we owe? We make a list. We spend a day sort of thinking, Gosh, what do we want to see? It’s been a long time since Elijah smiled. How can we create a story that makes him happy or where he can have a little fun? Hey, it’s been a while since there’s been a full moon, and we have a werewolf storyline, so should this be a full moon episode? What’s the big shocking reveal? What’s the big romantic wow? If you were going to say what you wanted this episode to be and mean, what would you call it? What would you say?

We just keep talking like that in really broad strokes. What we want to see our characters doing. What we want to see happen supernaturally. Then, in those big talks, myself or [Michael] Narducci, whoever’s kind of in charge at the moment, will start to whittle all those big thoughts into more clear, precise, beats, story ideas, pitches and you just keep whittling until you land on a concept for the episode.”
