Following the airing of the last episode of The Vampire Diaries “O, Come All Ye Faithful”, TV Line had a chance to chat with Julie Plec about the loss of Tyler’s mom, Damon and Elena’s struggles, the future of Caroline and Klaus and what’s coming up in the next episode when the show returns from hiatus January 17th, 2013.
TVLINE | The next episode is kind of Breakfast Club-y. Who’s trapped together, and what emotions does it bring out?
It has a lot to do with what Rebekah’s up to. She’s been gone for quite some time. She’s missed a lot. So [in] her efforts to try to get information out of everybody…she gets caught up on the goings-on in Mystic Falls in her absence, including that Stefan and Elena are broken up, that Elena slept with Damon, that there’s a sire bond at play, that the cure hasn’t been found yet – all kinds of great things which she gets out of them in the form of a pretty malicious detention at school.
