'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.).

Check out the biggest debates below:

Michael Trevino will return for 'The Vampire Diaries' 100th episode

We’ve got less than 24 hours before The Vampire Diaries returns with its 100th episode, which means it’s the perfect time for a little scoop, right?

EW has confirmed that Tyler will return for the landmark episode. Last we saw of him, Tyler broke Caroline’s heart before heading down to New Orleans to try and get revenge on Klaus. Specifically, the last time we saw him on The Originals, a few of Marcel’s henchmen were marching him off to find a place in Marcel’s “garden,” a.k.a. where distrustful vampires go to rot. But apparently, the resourceful hybrid has escaped!

What this means for Caroline and Tyler, we have no idea. But considering Matt is now the rightful owner of Casa Lockwood, let’s hope Tyler will have a place to stay when he stops through town.

'The Vampire Diaries': Caroline Dries previews Enzo's return, a Damon-Grayson 'parallel', and a 'beautiful scene' for Stefan and Katherine

The Vampire Diaries season 5 has been filled with doppelgangers, safes, experiments, mysterious pictures, and surprising romances. So what can viewers expect from Thursday night’s mid-season finale? Well, with the reappearance of Enzo, and a title like “50 Shades of Grayson,” Elena is bound to get some more answers about that secretive father of hers, and that’s not even mentioning Katherine and Stefan’s morning after.

We talked with executive producer Caroline Dries about Grayson, Enzo, and whether Aaron really is an innocent as he seems:

Best of 2013 (Behind the Scenes): How Katherine fought Elena on 'The Vampire Diaries'

In The Vampire Diaries‘ season 4 finale, Elena Gilbert finally came face-to-face with Katherine, a.k.a. her doppelganger, a.k.a. the woman she’s been waiting to throw down with since, like, forever. And thanks to the fact that Katherine killed Elena’s brother in the middle of season 4, Elena’s desire to get rid of Katherine was at an all-time high. Needless to say, by finale time, Elena wanted revenge.

However, it was the older vamp who started the fight, claiming that Elena was to blame for stealing her happiness. From there, things only escalated, even to the point where Katherine literally had Elena’s heart in her hand. Luckily, Elena had the cure for vampirism in her pocket and was able to shove it down Katherine’s throat before her heart was removed from her chest. The score might have ended Elena: 1, Katherine: 0, but the real winner was actress Nina Dobrev, who had somehow perfected the art of fighting herself.

So how did Dobrev do it? We spoke with stunt coordinator John Copeman and Dobrev separately to find out.

'The Originals': Michael Trevino previews a Caroline-related 'drag-out fight,' Tyler getting revenge on more than just Klaus

Oh, Tyler. After years of leaving, returning, and leaving again on The Vampire Diaries, Klaus’ first successful hybrid is back in the revenge state of mind, and tonight marks his first venture into New Orleans territory on The Originals. Wanting to kill Klaus is old news in Tyler’s world. He spent half of last season un-siring hybrids in order to rally against the Original. But when that failed, and Klaus decided to take revenge by murdering Tyler’s mother, the one-time jock hit the road. But it turns out, he wasn’t just off blowing steam.

After spending his time in the Appalachian mountains gathering valuable information on Hayley, Tyler is ready to come back and take on both the people who screwed him over last winter. We caught up with Michael Trevino to talk about Tyler’s plan, a physical fight with Klaus, and what this could all mean for Hayley and her unborn child:

'Vampire Diaries': Michael Trevino confirms 'Originals' crossover -- EXCLUSIVE

THE-VAMPIRE-DIARIES.jpg

Fans of The Vampire Diaries may be mourning the official break-up of Tyler (Michael Trevino) and Caroline (Candice Accola) in the Oct. 31 episode. Trevino confirms to EW what most viewers have guessed: Tyler will be the first TVD character to visit the show’s New Orleans-set spinoff, The Originals. While The CW won’t confirm when  — “sometime soon,” Trevino says coyly — or for how long, we do have an idea of why: As Tyler told Caroline, he can’t be at college when all he can focus on is his desire to make Klaus (Joseph Morgan) pay for killing his mother. Caroline begged him to love her more than he hates Klaus, but Tyler said he couldn’t and walked out. “It was actually really tough on both of us,” Trevino tells EW of shooting the teary-eyed goodbye. “In these scenes where Caroline and Tyler are going their separate ways, it’s usually that one of us is emotional and one isn’t. On this one, both of us were emotional. There were a few more takes than how it regularly goes between Candice and I.” READ FULL STORY

'Vampire Diaries': Kat Graham will be wearing this same outfit for the seeable future

The Vampire Diaries season 5 premiere was a dramatic one for Kat Graham’s Bonnie. The dead witch witnessed Silas (Paul Wesley) murder her mayor father. “I remember that we shot that on location in Covington, GA, at the town square. The people who live in the town, and sometimes people who travel and are fans of the show, come to watch us. So all they see is the mayor standing and talking, and then they hear this bloodcurdling scream from me. So there were literally fans watching us shoot the scene, so I’m surprised there were no spoilers that got out because it was very public.”

Of course, don’t expect Graham to give spoilers on what’s next for Bonnie. In Thursday’s episode, Bonnie will be coming to terms with her dad’s death and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) will again try to convince her that it’s time for the others to know she died resurrecting him.  (Watch a clip below.) Won’t people expect Bonnie to return for a funeral? “There’s definitely gonna be some questions asked, for sure,” she says. Will Bonnie want to make Silas pay? “Well, whatever her options are on other side, she’s definitely gonna try to exercise them,” she says. “There are a few people who want Silas dead. I can’t say too much. But you know what, all these questions will get answered in the next few episodes.” READ FULL STORY

'The Vampire Diaries' sneak peek: Damon, Elena, and a bubble bath -- VIDEO

Alright Delena shippers, it’s officially less than a week until you finally get what you’ve been waiting for… a happy couple! (At least for now.)

So to tide you over until The Vampire Diaries returns, The CW has released a (half-naked) first glimpse at the loving couple. As Elena prepares to head off to college, she spends her last night reveling in everything a relationship with Damon has to offer, including his rather incredible bathtub. While Elena sits amongst the bubbles and asks Damon to support her attempt at normalcy, he has something else on his mind: “I’d rather ply you with champagne and spend the night convincing you to stay.”

If we hadn’t seen pictures, we’d never believe Elena was stupid strong enough to actually leave that tub and go to college.

'The Originals': Showrunner Julie Plec's do's and don'ts of launching a spinoff

We’re one week away from the premiere of The Originals, the CW’s Vampire Diaries spinoff built around Original siblings Elijah (Daniel Gillies), Klaus (Joseph Morgan), and Rebekah (Claire Holt). We asked exec producer Julie Plec for the rules of launching a spinoff. Here, expanded from EW’s Fall TV preview issue, she shares seven of them:

• Establish a new heartbeat — if romance drives TVD, family drives The Originals. “People are always asking how will it be different, and why should I care about watching two versions of the same world. And that is the key: You just can’t retell the same story with different players in a different location,” Plec says. While The Vampire Diaries is best known for Damon and Stefan battling for Elena’s heart, the war in The Originals is over control of New Orleans’ French Quarter. Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), a former protégé of vicious vampire-werewolf hybrid Klaus, has created a community where vampires rule by exiling the werewolves and oppressing the witches. When the witches demand that Klaus do their bidding against Marcel, noble Elijah sees a chance to reunite his bickering family in a town they used to call home. “The Originals want it because they helped build it. Marcel wants it because he’s developed a community of vampires who can run around without a lot of restrictions. The witches can’t leave without giving up access to all their ancestral magic. And the humans are like, ‘Hands off, everybody. We’ve been here just as long as you have. It’s still a human’s town,'” Plec says. “Everybody’s fighting for a home to call their own and a place to plant their roots for themselves and for their family.”

'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.
