The fourth season of The Vampire Diaries is nowhere near done yet but that doesn’t mean that viewers aren’t speculating about Season 5 already. Luckily for us all, during an interview with TV Guide Magazine, showrunner Julie Plec indulged our curiosity by dishing out clues about what’s coming up in Mystic Falls during and after the epic Season 4 finale!
Here’s what J.Plec revealed:
- On the cure: “[It will] be ingested by a vampire,” she confirms. “This will be one of the finale’s final moments.”
- On graduation: “Definitely not all of our wayward, delinquent students will be present when it comes time to collect their diplomas. I’m not saying they won’t be alive — they just won’t be able to extricate themselves, as graduation falls right in the middle of a crucial supernatural time.”
- On tearjerker scenes: “There is a line in the [penultimate] episode when Elena is filling out graduation announcements and she says, ‘Who am I supposed to send mine to?'”
- On Season 5 Travel: Some of the Mystic Falls High residents will enroll at a nearby university, Whitmore College. Others, Julie hints, “may choose to run off to Europe, New Orleans or parts unknown.”
Well there you have it — four scrumptious clues to sink our teeth into. Enjoy more spoilers over at TV Guide!
Now it’s time for predictions! Who do you think is going to run off to New Orleans? We know the Originals are all headed there due to the potential spin-off in the works, but could certain characters (coughCarolinecough) pack a suitcase and venture down to the Big Easy to join Klaus?
