THE VAMPIRE DIARIES’ JULIE PLEC TALKS REDEMPTION IN THE FINAL SEASON



“The one big theme that we’ve never confronted head on is the idea of redemption in terms of it being a tangible need for our characters,” Plec says. “This season really deals with the theme of good vs. evil. Can you recover from the mistakes that you’ve made, can you make amends for the pain you’ve inflicted on others, is there hope for you or are you doomed to be punished for all eternity? We don’t really deal in specifics of heaven and hell on this show but we have always talked about peace, and we’ve never really explored what the opposite of peace might be...The ‘she’ in quotes is a fascinating entity because we start the season and no one knows what it is, our evil, how it works, what it wants. And part of the mystery of the first episode is actually trying to identify the villain,” Plec says. “Once we do and ‘it’ becomes ‘she,’ then she’s going to have a whole story of her own moving forward that is going to tie into all these things that we’ve been talking about".

Am I completely deluding myself, or does all this scream Katherine as the big new female villain that the cast have been confidently talking about being the best yet?! Katherine's final moments of being dragged off to hell would certainly tie in perfectly with that theme of what the opposite of heaven and peace might be

Also everyone seems surprisingly cagey about whether Nina is coming back or not, even though it was always talked about as a certainty before that Nina would 100% want to come back for the finale, and yet suddenly everyone involved doesn't want to say if they can work out the logistics or not? Could that be because Nina will be recurring as Katherine throughout the season, and they're trying to keep it as a surprise for the fans? And also Kevin Williamson has spoken in an interview recently about the season 1 finale twist with Katherine being his favourite that he's ever done, so I can really see everyone involved being excited to introduce a similar twist for their last ever season premiere...



Am I just kidding myself, or does this seem like a strong possibility to anyone else?
