The Vampire Diaries’ cast told MTV News what their reactions were to the season finale.
“It was a bonkers finale — is everyone flipping out?” asked “The Vampire Diaries” star Candice Accola of the MTV News reporter covering the Young Hollywood Awards red carpet last night. To put it bluntly, Candice, YES. We are all flipping out about last night’s crazy “VD” season finale.
If you, like us, haven’t been able to move past the “OMG WTF” stage in your “VD” finale reaction, let the “Vampire Diaries” cast members who attended the Awards put it a little more eloquently.
Nina Dobrev was shocked when she learned what was going to happen in the finale. “I remember sitting in bed reading the script, and when I got towards the end it was so [crazy]. Every single episode of ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ I feel I am always shocked and surprised. … This one being the finale has to exceed all expectations and go above and beyond,” she said. “And I think it does, and it’s crazy and fun, and I had a lot of fun being crazy and doing bad things.”
Her leading man, Paul Wesley, said he was a little intimidated upon reading the finale script. “Well, I was like, ‘Whoa, this a huge endeavor,’ ” he said. “The last four pages … really take the audience on a little bit of a thrill ride. I mean, the whole thing’s good, but the way it ends is kind of incredible.”
Don’t think we were able to get any answers out of the gang as to what’s in store for next season — they don’t know what is going to happen next season either, considering show masterminds Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec have just barely finished this season.
When asked if she knows whether Tyler’s going to end up a werewolf, as he is in the books, Candice played coy. “I plead the Fifth. I don’t know what you’re talking about. Who knows? I don’t know,” she said. She doesn’t know the fate of her character, Caroline, either. “I don’t know. This is going to be such a pain in the butt for you ’cause I don’t know. There is a car crash that happens, but I really don’t know the outcome of it.”
In the end, the stars seemed very grateful to be a part of the show. “There’s a bunch of cliffhangers and surreal, strange things that occur in this last episode,” Steven McQueen said. “I think we all took it as a blessing to be able to play these strange situations that can never occur in real life and just feel honored.”
What do you think about the cast reaction to the finale? Are you bummed that we won’t find out what happens next until September?
