“I think that if the villains in our show have proven anything from the beginning in that they have a durability,” Plec says when asked if the show is ready to say goodbye to the five siblings. “There’s five Originals and an Original mama and we’ll see who comes out the other side of it all to tell the tale.” Still, having all the siblings drink Elena’s blood was just the easy part in offing the Originals. “Next episode, it takes place on a full moon. We’ll learn that, like most of the big, heavy-duty witch spells, there needs to be some sort of recurring celestial event or some recurring event attached to it.” Enter Bonnie (Kat Graham) and Abby (Persia White), whose help Esther will need in completing her mission.
“Obviously, we’re at a little bit of a crossroads with Elena and the boys as she’s starting to understand Stefan’s whole ‘I’m filled with nothing but rage and anger and no love and no humanity’ wall has crumbled and he’s actually the only one preventing himself from truly letting his feelings back in and becoming his old self. And of course Damon, who she’s grown closer and closer to, she just put her foot in it big time with him,” Plec explains. “I think a lot of what we’re going to start to see is the question for Elena, which is ‘Here’s this person that I loved, and still love in my mind, so much, and here’s this friend that I have made, that has this friendship that has gone complicated. At the middle of it all, I’m still that girl who is not entirely sure that she’s supposed to be in love with any vampires, much less two.’
Plec continues, “We’ll really be exploring her point of view a lot for the rest of the season, and certainly I can say that you’re not going to get to the end of the season without all three of them understanding that a choice needs to be made.”
