TV.com‘s Price Peterson – he of the hilarious Vampire Diaries recaps and captioned photos – has what we think might be the most entertaining interview with Vampire Diaries Executive Producer Julie Plec we’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. Julie gives some hints on Season 3, identifies the two major show moments where she realized what she wanted The Vampire Diaries to be, fan favorites, killing characters, the school issue, Katherine as villain and vixen, accidental homo-eroticism, and The Secret Circle.
So national authorities haven’t yet noticed the town’s death rate?
We always talk about the “FBI Episode” when the FBI shows up in town and is like, ‘Um, you do realize that you have a higher death rate than all of Northern California?’ But look, I think that the timeline of the show is very specific. There’s a lot that’s going on under the noses of the authority figures. And there’s an element to that that’s both ridiculous and fun. I remember that Buffy episode when the students finally, like five seasons in, gave her the award for being the class protector. And what they said was, “It might seem like we don’t notice these things, but there’s some pretty weird stuff that happens in this town!” And I remember thinking, “It’s Season 5!” But yeah, it’s a fine line.
