Those watching the 2013 Comic Con presentation for The Vampire Diaries got a bit of a taste of what’s to come in the show’s upcoming season. The show returns to The CW for its fifth season on October 10th and those at the event’s press room got a glimpse of what’s going down in Mystic Falls.
The cast and crew of “The Vampire Diaries” gave shrieking Comic-Con fans a taste of what’s to come in the fifth season during the CW supernatural series’ presentation Saturday at the pop-culture convention. In footage shown before the panel, mind-bending baddie Silas addressed a group of Mystic Falls townsfolk while appearing as Paul Wesley’s Stefan. He not-so-discreetly informed the crowd that he wants to control them.
“Vampire Diaries” executive producers Julie Plec and Caroline Dries said the new season will also deal with the ramifications of Nina Dobrev’s Elena choosing romance with Ian Somerhalder’s Damon over Stefan, as well as Katherine, the ancient vampire character played by Dobrev, involuntarily becoming human. “It is Mystic Falls and essentially you can’t be that happy for that long, so there’s always got to be that drama,” said Somerhalder. The new season will also see some characters going off to college. “Why are we pursuing higher education?” joked Wesley. “We’re all murderers.”
