While our hearts started racing after the CW released some new behind-the-scenes photos of The Vampire Diaries cast just the other day, executive producer Julie Plec's Season 5 spoilers have had much the same affect!
Boy, does she have us wrapped around her finger!
To start with, Julie revealed that the premiere will be picking up at the end of the summer, with the cast moving to college:
“It’s a time jump. Summer has passed in which poor Stefan has been suffering at the bottom of the quarry and Damon and Elena have been having hot lovin’ sex… We found a stylized way to show the audience how things went over the summer, what everybody was up to.”
HELLO!!!! "Hot lovin' sex" was pretty much all we needed to hear.
But she continued to say that Damon and Elena will have some normal relationship struggles “in which one is keeping a secret from another trying not to hurt their feelings, trying to make them happy, little things that any normal couple would fight about and then hopefully make up over.”
More on Damon and Elena:
”The biggest hurdles in their relationship come from external sources, people, ideas, notions that are trying to say they’re not supposed to be together. It’s really going to be more about them fighting to prove that they should be together and it’s okay.”
On human Katharine:
“Certainly her determined presence in Mystic Falls and in the Salvatore house itself will definitely be a little bit of a sore spot.”
On Stefan undergoing a change in confinement:
“There’s a little bit of a riddle attached to that which I can’t really expand on, but it’s going to be a fun ride for Paul Wesley to play as an actor.”
On Caroline crossing over to New Orleans for some Klaus time:
“I think that there are a lot of complicated elements that go into trying to make this happen, but I’ve talked about it with Candice and I’ve talked about it with Joseph. There’s a million logistics to work out and you never know, but it’s something we’d like to do and hope to do.”
On the Whitmore College life:
“We definitely did not want to have it be the college down the block that all of a sudden out of nowhere there’s a Mystic Falls University, but we knew we had to keep them close enough to home so that they could come and go as they pleased with a little bit of a road trip… It’s so fun because you have this whole fresh new story at college, in the midst of which Damon has to show up there to solve a problem or Elena has to rush home to solve a problem or Caroline comes home for a holiday, so I think that we will have conquered the college curse pretty well.”
On any upcoming deaths:
“I think we’ve got some juicy villains that need some vanquishing and there’s always a possibility that one of our beloved heroes will kick the bucket. When, who, or how, I’ll never tell, but it’s definitely in the cards.”
There you have it, Perezcious readers!
