Give Me My Remote sat down with executive producer Julie Plec to talk about the season finale and more;
Let’s talk about prom!
Julie Plec: Prom is coming!
And they have some lovely dresses, too. What can you tease about the shenanigans that will be going down on prom night for Elena and the Salvatore brothers?
JP: It’s interesting, because on one hand, I think anyone — when you’re doing a high school series — is going to be waiting for that senior prom episode as our characters head towards graduation and wonder who is going to go with who, and how romantic will it be, and with Elena and this love triangle, probably before this season, they thought, “Who will she be with? Who will be her boyfriend at the time?”
Now, she’s in a situation where she doesn’t give a crap, so to speak, about anybody or anything, so it’s actually the brothers who show up — one on each arm — as their way of saying, well, look, if you don’t care about us, we’re going to make you care about something. So they use the prom experience and the night that’s supposed to be so wonderful for her and her friends to try and literally inject some emotion into her. And she doesn’t like that very much. So she gets very feisty.
And funnily enough, as is wont to happen at our school dances, something goes wrong and…in this particular dance, the perpetrator is Elena.
I imagine that won’t go over well with anyone, especially poor Caroline who has been working so hard on prom…
JP: Caroline has waited for this night her whole life — probably only second to her wedding — as she envisioned her perfect senior prom, and very quickly at the top of the episode, she’s miserable. Tyler’s gone, there’s a mishap with her dress, there are things that happen that frustrate her, she’s on the outs with her best friend, Bonnie’s acting weirdly. I think there’s a line somewhere in the episode where Caroline goes, “This prom sucks.” And she gets a nice moment when all is said and done; she gets to experience the perfect prom moment, but it’s short-lived and definitely will get people talking.
Will Caroline have a figurative knight in shining armor at some point in the episode to help things get back on track?
JP: She’ll have an advocate that is helpful to her.

SOMETHING WICKED — As Graduation Day approaches, Caroline (Candice Accola) tries to distract Elena (Nina Dobrev) by focusing on simple tasks like sending out announcements, but Elena won’t be swayed from her new obsession. Sheriff Forbes (Marguerite MacIntyre) calls Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) to the hospital, where someone has been attacking patients. Still trying to force Katherine (Nina Dobrev) to help her, Bonnie (Kat Graham) refuses to give up on her plan to defeat Silas. As a violent wind storm causes a power outage in Mystic Falls, ghosts suddenly appear – some with good intentions and some bent on revenge. Zach Roerig and Claire Holt also star.
There are eight things you need to know about the upcoming episode that airs this Thursday. Pictures of You will have some smashing moments according to KSiteTV
1. We’re getting a lot of questions about “Klaroline,” so… What’s going on there? Not a whole lot. There is a moment where it almost looks like Caroline and Klaus have a friendship or a shared fondness for one another, but I’ve got to be honest and say this is probably not the greatest episode for “Klaroline shippers”… although, Caroline does end up having a good prom night.
2. Bonnie gets some moments of fierceness. Bonnie’s put through the wringer this week, and it sounds like with each emotion, her powers seem to get stronger. Look for some moments of pure Bonnie awesome that the show has been lacking for a while.
3. On that same note… Stefan and Damon decide that maybe the key to getting Elena to turn her emotions back on is to give her really strong, well, emotions. Lexi’s not around to make it happen, but maybe something will get through to her before she’s even further gone? On the bright side, at least she’s not killing people as much.
4. Alaric gets a mention from Elena! Does this mean we’ll see him again soon? I sure hope so. RIP Cult.
5. Rebekah wants to prove that she can function as a human, so she pledges to go to the dance without using any vampire magic. On the flip side, that might mean she has no one to dance with, unless that human Matt Donovan finally gives in.
6. The Originals pilot is kind of set up at the end. This bit took me out of it a little bit, because it was clearly what sends Klaus off for whatever he does next week. It did feel a little tacked on, though.
7. Lots of other stuff happens that we can’t talk about. That includes the this of that, the thing between him and her, and the time when that person runs into that other person.
So is it worth seeing? There are some moments and some definite surprises that will set up this last run of five episodes. I’m definitely on for the ride, though I seriously hope someone kills April before everything is said and done.
According to E! Online there is some major drama in store for Damon and Elena in the upcoming episode;
1. The Fight to be Good: In order to prove to her brothers that her desperation to be human isn’t a whim, Rebekah (Claire Holt) tries to spend an entire day free of her vamp privileges. Too bad everyone, including our favorite human Matt (Zach Roerig), doesn’t think she can pull it off.
Oh, and guess who are living together? Elena and Rebekah! And these former frenemies are getting along pretty well as Elena is basically Rebekah’s prom queen election manager.
2. Klaroline Update: While we’re sworn to secrecy about their storyline, we can say that someone notes that everyone’s favorite blonde vamp has Klaus (Joseph Morgan) “wrapped around her finger.” And Klaus proves it’s true by the end of the hour, though he doesn’t appear at prom. Come on, that’s just be weird.
3. Body Count: During the big dance, more than one life is put in danger (And one of these is a regular). The other is April (Grace Phipps), who wears one of the worst prom dresses and hairstyles in TV prom history. (The O.C.’s Marissa Cooper she is not.)
4. Start of Staroline?: Though Stefan shares a rather intimate moment with his ex Elena on the dance floor, he also shares a dance with his pal Caroline and the chemistry is definitely there between them. And it seems like they might be starting to notice…especially when Caroline tries to give Stefan advice on how to move on.
5. The B-Word: During his prom moment with Elena, Damon drops two b-words during their intense conversation: “Boyfriend” and, er, “bitch.” And yes, she really deserves at least one of these after trying to hit him where it really hurts, aka the sire bond.

Carina MacKenzie answered some questions at Zap2it about the upcoming episode Pictures of You which airs this thursday
“The Vampire Diaries” highly anticipated senior prom episode, “Pictures of You,” is a little different from the dance episodes we’ve seen before. The shadow of Jeremy’s death still looms over Mystic Falls High, and it’s even perpatuated by the prom theme: Pictures of You. Photos of the characters in happier times — including some fun, never-before-seen cast pics — are projected all over the ballroom, but instead of being uplifting, it’s pretty tragic.
Stefan and Damon decide to spend the dance trying to remind Elena of why emotions are good, in order to get her to turn her sire bond back on. Damon talks to her about her professed love for him, while Stefan tries… a more hands-on approach. Meanwhile, Bonnie finds a way to enjoy the prom even under the shadow of grief, but she’s in much more danger than anyone realizes. Rebekah finally gets to attend a dance, but there’s a caveat. Elijah has decided to give her the cure, but only if she can go an entire night without using any of her vampire powers to prove that being human is what she really wants.
Normally, I’d give you guys some teasers to forward to about the episode, but this time, the list of things I’m not allowed to tell you is pretty impressive. So instead of doing this the usual way, I thought I’d open up the floor for some Twitter questions. I chose the ones I’m allowed to answer.
@cadlymack Will we get a prom king+prom queen? If yes, will we get a prom king/prom queen dance?
We will find out who wins the prom king and queen. We’ll also see Elena do some, uh, “campaigning” for Rebekah, her new roommate and only friend.
Does Matt buy someone a corsage?
Well, Matt is Bonnie and Caroline’s doting date, but they’re all strictly in the friend zone, so I can’t confirm or deny whether he actually bought the corsages. I mean… the dude may now live in an enormous mansion, but he still has to eat his Kraft dinners. Maybe he picked some flowers and tied them to a hair elastic or something.
@cadlymack how many innocent MFHS teens are hurt?
Just one. A lot of not-so-innocent teenage supernatural creatures get injured in this one, though. Silas is on the prowl, and he’s wearing every body in town. That leaves most of our faves vulnerable.
@cadlymack DELENA!! WHAT CAN WE EXPECT ABOUT DELENA?
Shhh. Inside voices. Here’s what I’ll say — someone uses the word “boyfriend.” But don’t get too excited! Of all the high school dances he’s inappropriately attended, we’re pretty sure this one will go down in history as Damon’s least favorite.
@cadlymack will Matt and Rebekah dance?
I’d tell you, but I’d have to kill you. (Or someone at The CW would kill me.) I can say that Matt’s opinion of Rebekah does change in this episode. Since she can’t use any of her vampire “perks” — speed, hearing, compulsion, strength, etc — she’s in a whole new position.
@cadlymack will bonnie get to dance with anyone?
Yes! Bonnie gets a dance. In fact, Bonnie is pretty freaking spectacular in this episode. Kat Graham gives a standout performance as Bonnie rides a roller coaster of grief, anger, and power.

“The Vampire Diaries”: We’re getting closer to the highly anticipated “Originals” episode. If the new spin-off gets picked up, Rebekah will be joining her brothers in New Orleans — but her role in the April 25 episode is minimal. As you may know, Claire Holt was the last of the Originals to sign on for the new series, and the script had already been completed when she inked her deal. But don’t worry, Rebekah fans — if “The Originals” gets picked up (and we’re hearing VERY good things from our CW sources), there are big, big plans in place for her time in New Orleans.
