'Vampire Diaries' boss on mid-season finale, Caroline's bad news

In Mystic Falls, the holidays are never what you’d call “typical.” (Let’s not forget the time Klaus celebrated by murdering 12 hybrids and drowning Tyler’s mother). And this year, with Kai roaming around trying to merge with Jo and Enzo roaming around trying to kill Stefan, things are shaping up to be just as festive as fans have come to expect.

In anticipation of the Vampire Diaries‘ mid-season finale, we talked with executive producer Caroline Dries about what fans can expect for Bonnie, Delena, Steroline, and more.

'Vampire Diaries' post-mortem: Nina Dobrev on premiere twist, what's next

In The Vampire Diaries‘ season 6 premiere, Elena was left to grieve the loss of Damon. Only, her coping mechanisms weren’t exactly conventional. And in a final twist, she decided to use Alaric’s return to her advantage by asking the Original vampire to compel her to forget Damon altogether.

Between that and the image of seeing Damon making pancakes (in flannel!), the premiere left a lot of questions unanswered. We got Nina Dobrev’s reaction to the Elena twist, mixed with a few additional answers from executive producer Caroline Dries.

'Vampire Diaries' has new characters, the old Damon, 'no happy endings'

When we left The Vampire Diaries last season, Mystic Falls had become a vampire-free zone, Damon and Bonnie had died, and Alaric had returned to the land of the living. But four months later, what’s everyone up to?

“This season is about how to bring everyone back together,” executive producer Caroline Dries said. “It’s like, ‘How can you come back together if you don’t even have your home?’ But there’s a deeper, hopefully more profound, resonance with it where it’s like, ‘Their home is their friends.'”

And with that in mind, Dries also promised that not everyone will have given up hope for saving Damon and Bonnie, though that mystery will not be short-lived. According to Dries, the mystery of “what the heck happened to them” will be solved within the first (of four) chapters of the season, but “it will spread out through the course of the season,” she said. “It will have ripple effects. But in general, that’s the big thrust of the beginning of the season.”

Oh, and don’t expect another super-complicated mythology right off the bat. “We’re not inundating the audience with really dense mythology. We’re trying to keep it very simple in changing up all of the character dynamics. That’s actually what’s creating the drama, not like this outside force,” Dries said.

As for what everyone within this world is up to, check out our character-by-character guide below:

'The Vampire Diaries' bosses reveal the seven biggest debates from the writers' room, and the two smallest

Five seasons in and 100 episodes later, the writers behind all things related to Mystic Falls, the Salvatore brothers, and of course, doppelgängers have given us countless twists, turns, and heartbreaking memorable moments. But what were the stories that turned out differently than they expected? And if that’s the case, what had been their original plan? Was Elena originally going to remain a vampire? Actually, no. Was Jeremy always going to come back from the dead? Again, not so much. We caught up with executive producers Julie Plec and Caroline Dries to get a look back at seven of the biggest debates from the writers room over the past 100 episodes, as well as a glimpse into two storylines they never questioned and the real reason why the Originals are immortal (Hint: It wears a suit.).

'Vampire Diaries' scoop: Meet six fresh faces for season 5

When The Vampire Diaries returns for its fifth season on Oct. 3, fans may feel like they’re watching a new show: Elena (Nina Dobrev) is officially with Damon (Ian Somerhalder), and she and Caroline (Candice Accola) are now students at nearby Whitmore College. Damon is living with Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen), who’s still the only one who knows Bonnie (Kat Graham) died while resurrecting him. And Stefan (Paul Wesley), villain Silas’ surprise doppelgänger, remains trapped in a water-logged safe drowning over and over again. “He has all these weird dreams and visions,” Wesley says, “and when he gets out, it’s almost like PTSD.”

All those changes mean many new, and very pretty, faces will be joining our Mystic Falls favorites. We asked exec producers Julie Plec and Caroline Dries to make some introductions. Click on Launch Photo Gallery for the who’s who.
