In a shocking mid-season finale, a vengeful Stefan (Paul Wesley) stole the caskets containing the family of former road buddy Klaus (Joseph Morgan). When the show returns next month, Klaus will try to strike a deal but Stefan won’t budge. As a result, says executive producer Julie Plec, “Mystic Falls is in the hands of Klaus. Stefan and Klaus want to destroy each other, but they’re unwilling to face the consequences if things go wrong. It’s a Mexican standoff.” That bromance may be over, but romance is in the air: “Elena finally realizes that she must move on from Stefan,” Plec says. “It means that she’s open to looking elsewhere….”
Also, newbie hybrid Tyler (Michael Trevino) is put to the test to prove his love for Caroline (Candice Accola); Alaric (Matt Davis) will get close to a doctor who’s intrigued by his powers of recovery (played by Paul Wesley’s real-life wife Torrey Devitto); and we’ll meet a possible love interest for teen witch Bonnie (Kat Graham). Hey, witches need love, too.
Will Damon and Elena finally get together? “Stefan’s behavior is opening a lot of doors for Damon and Elena,” says executive producer Julie Plec.
