Julie Plec’s interview on Prom, Graduation and the Season Finale

From Give Me My Remote: The Vampire Diaries: Julie Plec on Prom, Graduation, the Season Finale, and More

You teased at the WonderCon showrunner panel that we’ll find out how truthful Elena’s feelings are for Damon by the end of the season. Will that reveal revitalize the triangle again?
JP: Yes. Without a doubt. Without a doubt. It will revitalize the triangle for sure, and as far as the Elena and Damon information, I think what it will do is cement their relationship — or lack thereof — once she comes clean with a sense of at least semi-permanence, if not permanence. It won’t be a little more of, “Oh, I love you, but I have to stay away.” Or, “Oh, I hate you.” There will be something that feels, okay, we’re going to settle in this for a while. And good or bad, how is that going to go?
