The dating doctor diaries
Caroline is holding very strongly onto the idea that “We need to stick together in order to find our way back home and be allowed back into our town.” And Tyler’s thinking, “Hey, maybe it’s time for me to go live my life.” So everyone’s response to the events of the finale will be different and profound. I think there are characters we’d already given goodbyes to, and there are characters that — even though we say goodbye to them a million times — we get excited anytime they show up on the screen.TVLINE | We’ve been told that the finale would make death irreversible from now on. I think it means there’s a mystery attached to how the show ended. So in trying to show the consequence of the demise of the Other Side, we really did have to say goodbye to some fan-favorites.So what he ultimately ends up doing will be an interesting reflection on his state of mind at the moment — and very fun for Paul [Wesley] to play. Certainly, we will see Ian [Somerhalder] and Kat [Graham] again, but where and in what context? TVLINE | I assume we won’t meet their doppelgangers. No! That was some Season 5 fun we got to have, but with Katherine and Silas gone, I think we’re done with that.TVLINE | Given Caroline’s feelings for Stefan, and now the return of her ex, might there be a triangular shape forming there? TVLINE | I’m sure this mostly has to do with scheduling, but in terms of which characters got to come back, how did you decide who made the cut?season finale left two of our favorites on the Other Side, and left viewers with endless burning questions.
I think Caroline and Tyler’s individual responses to losing Damon and Bonnie will set each of them on a new path in their life. She’s always been off in that beautiful netherworld, whatever it may be.I can say that Lexi, in my heart, found peace, and I believe the same is true for Grams.I definitely know that Silas and Markos and everybody else is definitely gone for good.And it was our only opportunity to bring back any fan-favorites, so there were a lot of conversations about who we might like to bring back, and Alaric was the first name on everybody’s lips.If you couldn’t live with losing one of these characters, who would it be?
