She received over 2,400 responses, so, apparently, they wanted to know a lot!
Plec answered questions on everything from Elena's politics (hint: she would be on the streets protesting) to some behind-the-scenes scoop from the production.
Here are some highlights of her best and most-spoilery-without-being-actual-spoilers answers:
But, wait! Poor Stefan! Will he at least have a happy ending? “He’s trying,” was all that Plec would say.
Are there any kids in the future? “No kids other than the ones you have already met,” she says.
She revealed that the last scene is in the Salvatore house and there will be talk of a final diary entry.
When asked how brutal the finale will be, Plec said, “This one goes to 11.” She also said that she is very happy with how the series and the finale ended.
No final word from Plec about the run-time on the finale. It isn’t supposed to be longer, she admitted, but she is having trouble editing it down. Looks like we’re not the only ones having a hard time saying good-bye.
She answered a ton of questions, but maybe this one was the most important. Does she think fans will enjoy the finale? “Yes,” she answered. “It’s pretty beautiful. Sad, but beautiful.”
