You've been warned. Spoilers ahead!
Executive producer of The Vampire Diaries, Julie Plec, is referring to season 3 as the "Season of Originals".
Sounds like Klaus and Elijah will be playing a bigger role in the series starting this September.
As for the rest of the cast THIS SEASON, Plec revealed:
“All I’ve ever said is that there will be some severe and tragic consequences, and that the loss of life will be extreme over the last couple of episodes.”
No word on who or how many characters may be saying bye-bye, but she continued:
“We set this ritual in motion early on, and it needs several sacrificial elements, so if that happens - and when it happens, and if it goes off without a hitch - there will be a lot of loss of life.”
Michael Trevino, who returned to last night's episode as Tyler, offered some insight into his character's fate, saying:
"I don’t know where they’re going to go with Tyler in Season 3, but there have to be some [more] changes. Hopefully we can get into explaining what he was doing when he was gone, and who was he involved with.”
Sounds like Tyler made the cut, but only time will tell as Plec ominously added:
“We do have ways of letting our audience see their fan favorites again, over time.”
Okay, so pretty much anybody is game to go bye-bye.
What characters do U think will be killed off by the end of the season?
