Carina Mackenzie of Zap2It not only moderated The Vampire Diaries New York Comic Con Panel, she was able to have an exclusive chat with showrunners, Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson, where they discuss the future of the TVD fandom’s beloved “Delena”. Here Julie mentions when Kevin Williamson pitched the idea for Damon to snap Jeremy’s neck.
The neck-snapping incident that drove a wedge between the two former friends was arguably the most shocking moment we’ve seen yet in a series that surprises me in every act. Plec says that she and Williamson were having lunch when he pitched her the idea, and she gasped out loud. “My jaw fell on the floor,” she recalls. “That is the most messed up, twisted, ridiculous, horrible thing, that is awesome. And if I’m having a reaction, as someone who’s heard everything, and I lose my mind over it – it blew my mind.”
