TV Guide caught up with Julie Plec recently for some scoop on TVD Season6. TV Line also has more scoop from Julie as well!

Via TV Guide

How long will it be before we find out where Damon and Bonnie have been and presumably when they’ll be back?

Julie Plec: The answer of what happened is part of the season-long mythology, but the mystery of where they are is going to be asked very quickly and answered soon enough to not be frustrating.

Can Elena really move on?

Plec: What happened to her is that in spite of losing her parents and her brother, her aunt, her friends again and again, she lost the person she singularly believed to be the man she was going to spend all of eternity with. I think there’s a special form of grief that comes attached to that, which will be difficult to get past, but also the choices she makes at how to move on will be very interesting to watch.

What coping mechanisms will Elena from The Vampire Diaries be using to deal with the fact she lost Damon (seemingly) forever? –Ana

It sounds like she’ll be burying her nose in the books, of the medical stripe. As indicated by a flurry of recent castings – and likely a pure coincidence now that TVDhas Grey’s Anatomy as a time slot rival — “When we come back, we’ll see that Elena is actively pursuing a degree in pre-med,” show boss Julie Plec told us. “She’s a smart girl, and Elena’s father was a doctor, so she’s trying to figure out how to help people and save people, just as her family did.” And merely as an added bonus, “We’ll meet some hot young pre-med guys and sexy doctors” as she does so.

As we mentioned earlier, Ian Somehalder & Caroline Dries held a Q&A after a screening of The Vampire Diaries “Man on Fire” the other day. Check out what they had to say is to come after last night’s shocking death!

Enzo’s next move via EW:

“His story isn’t over — he’s going to become kind of this ghost villain moving forward and we’ll see him all the way through the finale as the bad guy,” divulged Dries. “He’s pissed that he’s dead, but that’s amplified by the fact that around him, people are being sucked into the ether just like Vicki, so his concern is, ‘I want out.’”

So exactly just how much damage can Enzo cause from the other side while trying to escape whatever afterlife he’s in? “You just wait, you just wait and see — he’s determined to make Damon’s life and Stefan’s life a living hell,” Dries says cryptically.

PRE-FINALE EPISODES | As the Travelers move forward with their plans, Stefan and Elena will develop an “us-against-the-world” mentality, executive producer Caroline Dries teases. “They’ll need to lean on this strong connection to get through it.” Meanwhile, as Bonnie makes “brave choices” about the Other Side’s big dilemma, Dries reminds us, “There’s always a sacrifice, and her relationship with Jeremy will certainly be one of the things that complicates everything.” As for Stefan and Caroline’s undeniable… something, Dries encourages patience: “Our plan is to let this friendship evolve naturally and watch what happens when feelings start to emerge, ever so slowly, from one of them and how that begins to complicate things.”

MAY 15 SEASON FINALE | The final hour of Season 5 culminates in an all-out battle for Mystic Falls — against the Travelers, of course. Iin addition to the usual “blood, death and tears,” Dries says to brace for more reunions with “faces that we’ve been missing over the series.” (That’s right, she said “series.”) She also promises the finale “will end in true Vampire Diaries fashion, with a stunning cliffhanger that leaves us thinking, ‘Wait, what? No. Tell me that didn’t just happen.’”

Gone Girl

TV Line‘s Ask Ausiello has some more spoilery goodness for us! Check it!

Question: I know it’s a little early to ask this, but anything you can give us on next season of The Vampire Diaries? — KS

Ausiello: Well, KS, before you ask what’s coming up in Season 6, you should probably ask which characters might not live long enough to see it. ”There are going to be a lot of goodbyes as we realize the other side is disintegrating,” executive producer Julie Plec tells TVLine. “Not everybody is going to survive that. We’re going to have to say goodbye to some characters that we’ve grown to love over the years. That’s what we’ll see when we get to the finale.”

Question: Any Vampire Diaries scoop? Especially something about Caroline? — Chery

Ausiello: If by “Caroline,” you mean “Stefan and Caroline,” I’ve got you covered, Chery. The fan-favorite characters are about to spend a lot more time together, including one particularly steamy scene that Plec was happy to tease for us: “They go on an adventure, there’s a train car and it’s cold outside. So what are a girl and a boy to do, but cuddle up for warmth?” What, indeed.

No Exit

TV Line’s Andy Swift caught up with Caroline Dries to preview tonight’s episode. See what Caroline had to say about Damon’s dark path, and how will he and Stefan react to discovering Elena is really Katherine.

TVLINE | Even before getting infected, Damon was headed down a dark path. What, or who, will it take to bring him back?
It’s not going to be an easy road for Damon to come back, because what he did was pretty bad. What we’re trying to explore is, now that Stefan is moving on from Elena after this whole Katherine chapter closes, he’s trying to figure out the next big movement in his life. And since his brother needs him more than ever, Stefan will be the one to kind of pick him up — in a very Stefan kind of way.

TVLINE | I imagine Stefan and Damon will have very different reactions when they discover that Elena is really Katherine.
They definitely will, but their shock of discovering that it’s Katherine will be trumped by the fact that they need to figure out how to get Elena back. That’s the more urgent thing, so ultimately, they have to figure out how to mastermind the master manipulator. It becomes a ‘Katherine vs. our heroes’ kind of storyline, which is very fun.

Handle with Care

TV Line has posted their Winter TV Spoiler-palooza, and including some scoop from The Vampire Diaries, courtesy of Julie Plec.

PREVIOUSLY ON… | Damon broke up with Elena so he wouldn’t change her, Katherine had a heart attack and the truth about Wes and Grayson Gilbert’s experiments came out.

COMING UP NEXT | The show hits the big 100 with surprises, tears, romance, nostalgic moments, juicy twists and maybe one or two familiar faces, executive producer Julie Plec previews. At the center is a dying Katherine, but she isn’t exactly surrounded by well-wishers. “She doesn’t have a huge fan base at the Salvatore house where she is, so Stefan is the person who’s there for her,” says EP Caroline Dries. The milestone hour will also be a “huge” one for Damon and Elena as the action picks up right after their split. “[We] see how they’re both handling it,” says Dries, adding that things between the pair are “still so tender. There’s still so much that is unresolved about it.” Another couple, Bonnie and Jeremy, will “hit some speed bumps,” while Caroline “needs some lovin!” the EP notes with a laugh. And did we mention Klaus and another Originals character will visit Mystic Falls?

Check out the latest interviews from a recent visit to the set of The Vampire Diaries from TV Line, Zap2It and E!Online.

Nina, Ian and Paul talk Delena tension, Stelena’s faded romance & Katherine via TV Line:

“It’s the elephant in the room,” describes Nina Dobrev during a TVLine visit to the show’s Atlanta set. “When you’re in a relationship and there’s an ex-boyfriend around, the significant other is always like, ‘Hmm, I wonder…’ There’s always that insecurity. They might say that it’s OK, but it’s in the back of their mind. It’s the same thing with Elena and Damon. He’s pretending to be OK with it, but he can’t unthink and unknow what he heard and what he knows now.”

Having that little destiny nugget tucked away in Damon’s mind “will always cause tension in their relationship moving forward,” continues the actress.

Caroline Dries and Paul Wesley clear up the Silas confusion via Zap2it:

Zap2it went straight to the “TVD” boss herself, executive producer Caroline Dries, while visiting the set in Atlanta to get some answers. “I feel like people were a little confused by that. But remember what happened with Katherine,” Dries tells Zap2it. “Silas ingested the cure from her and now she’s aging.”

Dries says the problem Katherine is currently dealing with will now happen to Silas, and everything shifts over one person. “That’s going to happen now that Amara drank the cure. She’s now mortal, and he’s now immortal but dying,” Dries says. “She just needed to be able to kill herself. It’s a very uplifting show. The CW was like, ‘Um, we get what you’re doing here but you have a number of characters trying to kill themselves. Just be careful.’”

Paul Wesley and Candice Accola on Steroline via E!Online:

“I can see why viewers of the show see a Caroline and Stefan connection of sorts; I don’t think the characters themselves really think anything of it, if I had to jump into the Caroline brain,” she explained. “But I can see them growing as friends, it’s really up to the writers where these characters are going to go.”

Plus, Caroline is totally Team Stelen according to Accola, who spilled, “I think Caroline truly believes Stefan and Elena are supposed to be together, so I can’t imagine her, at this time, trying to get in the way of that.”
