We all know 'The Vampire Diaries' is best at being heart-warming, compelling, and unpredictable- and it looks like we are looking into seeing that in the Season 5 Finale. What did executive producer, Caroline Dries, have to say about the finale?
"The finale will be emotional," Caroline teased. "We'll get to see a lot of our favorite friends from the past possibly pop in. Basically, every place on the show where s—t can possibly go wrong, it goes wrong. Just when you think, oh it can't get worse than that, it does."
There’s a lot of unpack in that spoiler. We are all very excited about getting to hang around with our 'Favorite Friends'. Will Alaric make and appearance? I sure hope so! We all already know Kol is popping around somewhere. As for the hint that everything that can go wrong, will, we’re now worried about our “favorite friends.” Why? Because executive producer Julie Plec teased:
"There are going to be a lot of goodbyes as we realize The Other Side is disintegrating and 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."
No! Not real goodbyes! No more hanging with favorites who passed on on special occasions. No more hope of them ever coming back? Just old cold, finite death. Like the old-fashioned kind in those other non-genre shows? Please no! Caroline is right about one thing: if we’re losing our long-time TV chums forever, the finale will be emotional. Ugly-crying emotional.
How about Season 6? Will The Vampire Diaries blue-eyed bartender Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig) find love in Season 6? Matty's Blue Eyes hasn't had the best luck in the romance department. Elena dumped him. Caroline turned into a vampire, Rebekah got her own spin-off, and Nadia died before they could properly explore their feelings for one another. Basically: Mystic Falls’ resident human doesn't get any love. But, according to executive producer Caroline Dries, that will change in Season 6.
When asked about Matt’s prospects in the upcoming season, Caroline told Zap2it:
"Poor Matt. Yes, I think so. We're going to try something in Season 6 that we've been percolating on that I think will really help Matt's storyline. It's hard to give him these overarching love storylines because we're just like, what's the genre? Genre, genre, genre. It's hard because we have like 40 hundred thousand characters on the show, you know? To give them all very interesting, dynamic storylines is hard but we have something planned for him."
Yeah, give Matt some love! Perhaps, it has something to do with his connection to the Other Side. With every death whilst wearing the Gilbert Ring, Matt seems to spend more and more time hanging in the supernatural purgatory. Will this become a major part of his life in Season 6? Will he spend just as much time with the dead as the living? Perhaps, leading to a rekindling of the romance with Nadia? This seems like it could end in tragedy, but — let’s face it — TVD has always loved to stomp on fans’ hearts, and there’s no quicker way to do that than going after Matt. Or, maybe he’ll start dating Elena again? I'm only kidding!
