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.

enzo-man-on-fire

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.”

TV Guide’s Mega Buzz and TV Line’s Ask Ausiello has posted their latest TVD scoop! Major spoilers on Stefan & Elena and Silas & Katherine!

via TV Guide:

More Vampire Diaries details on Stefan and Elena, please! Last week’s spoiler got me so excited! — Kaitlin

ADAM: More good news for Team Stefan! Paul Wesley recently said that he believes that Stefan will never truly get over Elena. “That love has to always exist,” he says. So how will they keep the triangle alive now that Damon and Elena are so happily in love? Look for an early-season reveal that suggests that Elena and Stefan will forever be linked.

via TV Line:

Question: I’m so excited about season 5 of The Vampire Diaries! In the new promo, there was moment where it seemed like Stefan was flirting with Katherine. Now that Elena is with Damon, does this mean that Stefan has his eyes on Katherine? —Rashad

Ausiello: Actually, if you caught the finale, it means Silas has eyes for Katherine. But trust me when I say, his intentions with the now-human rabble-rouser are far from amorous.

fall-tv-show-spoilers-tv-line-delena

TV Line has some Vampire Diaries Season 5 Scoop for us in their Fall TV Spoiler Spectacular! Plus a sneak peek at Delena with this new photo from the Season 5 premiere “I Know What You Did Last Summer”.

PREVIOUSLY ON… | Stefan — who was revealed to be Silas’ doppelganger — was locked up at the bottom of the ocean, Elena chose Damon, Katherine became human and Bonnie resurrected Jeremy (but remained a ghost herself).

COMING UP NEXT | The new season picks up three months later, following a (relatively) quiet summer. But this is Mystic Falls, so peace doesn’t stand a chance, particularly with Silas posing as Stefan. “We’re going to explore this phenomenon of the doppelganger and how and why they exist in our mythology,” teases executive producer Caroline Dries, who also previews the arrival of a “legitimately Bigger Bad” down the road who is “scary and creates a new dynamic.” On the romance front, Elena and Damon’s honeymoon period could be disrupted by her friendship with a fellow college student (played by Melrose Place‘s Shaun Sipos), while Caroline remains focused on Tyler even as she connects with upperclassman Jesse (Greek‘s Kendrick Sampson). Speaking of Tyler: While the EP won’t reveal when the hybrid returns, she does promise it will be “in a very beautiful, appropriate moment” — and with “a little bit of attitude” about needing Klaus’ OK. Lastly, Bonnie and Jeremy experience some connectivity issues that not even AT&T MiFi can resolve. Explains Dries: “The external conflict is, ‘I can’t touch you,’ and the internal conflict is, ‘I actually have feelings for you, but I can’t talk to you about it.'”

TVLINE BONUS SPOILER | Mystic Falls’ favorite busboy is getting a juicy storyline following his return from Europe. “[Matt is] not a peripheral character this season,” teases Dries. “He really has an interesting, intriguing storyline this year. We are introduced to it briefly in the season premiere.”

The Vampire Diaries cast stopped by TV Line‘s suite at SDCC to chat about season 5, college, Silas! Funny stuff! Watch!

The Walking Dead

New scoop on The Vampire Diaries Season 5 characters!  UPDATE: We have also now added a little more about this new character via TV Guide.

Via TV Line:

Question: Any Vampire Diaries scoop? Will Tyler be back this season? Thanks! — Mary Kate

Ausiello: Tyler who? There’s nothing like a cute older college boy to make you temporarily forget the show’s MIA hybrid hunk. That’s what happens when Caroline meets Jesse, a hot, smart, confident and disarmingly sweet upperclassman at Whitmore. Among the other fresh faces in the season opener: smartypants Megan, who attends Mystic Falls High’s 1950s dance and attempts to charm the pants off Jeremy, and Eastern European beauty Nadia, who crosses paths with Matt and Rebekah at a Prague bar — and comes on toboth of them?! — before delivering an ominous warning to Stefan about The Originals.

Via TV Guide:

I know it’s still early, but do you have any scoop on The Vampire Diaries yet? —Miguel

NATALIE: Sorry, Forwood fans: Even though Klaus decamped for New Orleans, Tyler still may not have a shot at a reunion with Caroline, who’s quite popular with one particular guy at college. One problem: He’s not a fan of fangs — for a very good reason.

Check out these interviews with Julie Plec from TV Guide, TV Line & EW. She sheds light on the season finale, previews season 5 and answers questions you all may have! Don’t read any further if you haven’t watched the episode yet!

Via TV Guide:

How long before everyone finds out that Stefan is really Silas?
Plec: 
Truth be told, I don’t think it’ll be too long. I think that there’s more fun to be played with people learning quickly, but independently of the other so there’s a lot of good bait-and-switch Katherine-style stuff that could happen early in the season. And people that know Stefan well will be able to catch on pretty quickly I would hope.

Can we expect double Paul Wesley scenes?
Plec: 
Part of the fun of having an actor play two roles are those opportunities to put them face to face, but they’re difficult to shoot and they take a lot of time and the stuff we do even with Katherine and Elena we do so sparingly. So we’ll definitely see it, but of course Stefan will be on his own journey presumably at the bottom of the [lake] floor so we’ll see when and who gets him out of that mess.

Read more from the interview over at TV Guide.

Via TV Line:

TVLINE | Speaking of, why Damon? What were you hoping to get to explore in Elena choosing Damon?
Damon’s a character who’s been driven by feeling like he’s not worthy of love. Now that he’s on the receiving end of that love, what will that mean for him? And where will he have to make changes in him, in his behavior? Or will he still be, “I am who I am. You love me for who I am. I’m not going to change for you”? It’ll be a fun dynamic to see him either trying to exercise restraint or not being able to exercise restraint in the name of love of this girl, especially as he’s got a new houseguest. He’s [living] with Jeremy Gilbert as Elena goes off to college.

Read more over at TVLine!

Via EW:

Did you start the season knowing that you were going to end it with Bonnie dying?
Interestingly enough, that was a pitch that was on the table for the finale last year. For us, it’s always been a question of how much we want to show of the other side. And is there an entire world that we can play over there, or do we really want to keep everything grounded in a real world universe. Having Jeremy able to see ghosts and now Bonnie over on the other side, it felt like an exciting complication to a budding romantic relationship that we were looking forward to playing in that. And also relieving ourselves of the burden — as Kevin [Williamson] calls it, the witch storytelling burden — which is that when you have a witch, they should be able to fix all the problems, but if they could fix all the problems, then you’re not telling the story. But if they can’t fix the problems, then they’re really bad witches. [Laughs] So it’s a nice relief from that for a while.

How much will we see of Kat Graham next season?
She will be a regular. She will be around. If anything, we’ll see as much if not more of her. And it gives us a great way to develop more stories for her outside of just her being the witch that comes in and tries to save the day. I’m excited about the opportunity to tell a romantic relationship between two people who can’t physically be together. Talk about your hurdles.

Super Mega Spoiler Alert! Check out TV Line‘s most recent Vampire Diaries Scoop from Ask Ausiello! Read at your own risk!

Question: So we know there are ghosts appearing on The Vampire Diaries soon. Do you know if any characters are actually getting resurrected permanently? Or are they all just ghosts? —Audrey

Ausiello: Rumor has it that one resurrection may stick.

Question: I need some Vampire Diaries scoop on Caroline. —Calleigh

Ausiello: These 15 words will leave her mouth in the May 16 season finale, per exec producer Julie Plec: “Come hell or high water, hell will freeze over before I let anybody cancel graduation.” As Plec explains, “The instinct to miss graduation is going to be on [everyone’s] minds because there’s greater things afoot. And Caroline, as we know, finds these moments and high school events very precious and gets very angry when anybody tries to mess with them.”

The Originals

Check out the latest scoop from TV Guide and TV Line! Klaus and Hayley scoop! And when will we get to see the “real” Silas?

via TV Guide’s Mega Buzz:

Got any scoop on The Vampire Diaries spin-off episode? — Jorge 

NATALIE: After Klaus and Haley’s hookup, Phoebe Tonkin’s casting on the spin-off makes a little more sense, but in the backdoor-pilot episode, we’ll discover why they’ll always be connected — and why Elijah is so damn happy about it.

via TV Line’s Ask Ausiello:

Question: Do you know if there any big deaths coming up on The Vampire Diaries? —Audrey

Ausiello: Nope, but I can tell you that next Thursday’s episode features another big return (in addition to this one), as well as a passing glimpse of Silas’ real face — rumor has it he looks a lot like an actor out of Atlanta named Scott Parks. However, don’t get too used to seeing Silas’ authentic self. According to sources, the erstwhile warlock will continue to do most of his dirty work in disguise.

Question: When will Vampire Diaries start addressing the fact almost all of the core characters will be graduating high school in a few weeks? —Matt

Ausiello: The G-word will soon become a big topic of conversation in Mystic Falls. “There’s going to be a lot of questions about, ‘Who am I? What am I going to do with my life? What am I meant to be? Where am I meant to go?’” previews exec producer Julie Plec. “All of our characters will be faced with that question as they make decisions about whether to stay or go, go to college, travel the world, break up, stay together. A lot of big, important life decisions as we say goodbye to the high school chapter of the show.”
