A lot of fans are reeling from last nights season 3 finale, but take a few deep breaths! We’ve got all summer to sort through every detail of season 3, and Vampire Diaries will be back again for season 4 in the Fall.
Speaking of season 4, Entertainment Weekly had some questions for Julie Plec about last night’s episode and what’s coming up in the new season. Spoiler alert for The Departed (EP322). Julie answers questions about most of the major characters on the show, and clears up a few things that may have confused people in last night’s episode. Naturally, several questions focus on Elena and the Salvatores and where things stand between them.
So she made her choice, but you set up that it’s not necessarily final — the sexual tension will still exist, even if it’s just simmering. I feel like fans on both sides should be happy with this.
No. No. The most passionate of the opposing teams are never quite happy unless they get exactly what they want. But, I would say everybody else can understand that end game means end of series. We’re in the middle of the journey, and our heroine just made a life decision and then EVERYTHING in her life is about to change. We’re starting Part 2. We’ll continue to ask the question “Why was it right for her?” and answer it as we move into next season. Elena as a character will continue to evolve and change, as will our boys, as will their feelings for each other and for her. It’s a marathon, not a sprint.
