However, there are many people who may not agree with the point that the best vampire show. But, there is no doubt that the show attracted a large amount of audience. The vampire diaries ending really made an impact on fans all around the world.
However, in the recent interview with the show writers Julia Plec. She told us the alternative or their version of ending what they thought before. It raised the eyebrows of many fans of the show. But we are totally glad they ended the show the way it ended.
The Vampire Diaries.:
Julia Plec shared her thoughts on the ending of the vampire diaries.
“I wanted flash-forwards. Ever since we decided to put Elena in a sleeping beauty spell that couldn’t be broken until Bonnie died, I wanted to see the scene with 85-year-old Bonnie and Damon by her side, and they’re the best of friends. And then she dies of natural causes because I just thought that Bonnie deserved a rich and full life. I had this scene in my head for so long and then Kevin [felt] that stories are more impactful when you play them in the here and now. So we compromised by showing everybody just slightly ahead in their life and having those characters observing from peace, which in my opinion worked like a charm and I’m so happy we did it that way.”
The write Julia Plec and Kevin did an amazing job of bringing the concept and show to its glorious end. However, Julia admitted that even though they put a lot on the show. There are always going to be people who will have the ending of a show.
They Wanted Bonnie to get old:
As mentioned in the interview above. They definitely wanted to show a time jump. But instead of going for this Kevin advised Julia and others to stick with a little time jump. However, it made more impact on the viewers.
Which Brother Deserved to live: The Vampire Diaries Ending
Julia Plec shared her experience while selecting which brother deserved to be alive.
“The other big debate we had was: Which Salvatore brother is going to take the bullet for the other? We debated that so much because we could make a really strong case for either. And we finally settled on Damon was going to die. And then Kevin walked into the room and he’s like, ‘What’s Stefan’s life going to be like?’ I said, ‘He’s going to be happy with Caroline and uh uh… uh, I don’t know.’ I’m like, ‘You’re right, it needs to go the other way.’ It was so funny because we had thought about it in the room so much that we had talked ourselves into one path, but all we needed was him to walk in and be like, ‘But… isn’t it cooler the other way?’ And so we switched it. He gets all the credit for that.”
Big thanks to Kevin for an iconic end.
