Let’s of course start off this “Vampire Diaries” article with a warning, given that we are still not that far removed from the season 4 finale airing on The CW last night.

Otherwise, prepare to dive in and enjoy!
“The Vampire Diaries” has constantly been about ways to try and surprise us with various twists and turns, and with their season 4 finale on Thursday night, they certainly managed to do that and then some. Read full article.

‘The Vampire Diaries’ Season 5 scoop: Julie Plec talks Stefan’s drama, Jeremy, and Damon’s happiness
This article contains spoilers for season 4 finale! So if you haven’t seen it – don’t read this one yet!
Going into tonight’s Season 4 finale, “Graduation,” we knew a few things would happen: The gang would graduate, in a poignant scene that celebrated their history together. Elena would, once again, make a choice between Stefan and Damon. One character who had previously died would return from the dead. And, of course, we knew that someone would take the cure for vampirism and turn into a human. But while we were busy asking who would get the cure and who would spend the summer making out with Elena, we kind of forgot about another season-long mystery: Why won’t Silas let anyone see his real face?
The slight of hand gave us one of the most jaw-dropping finale twists ever… and it was just one of many. We spoke with executive producer Julie Plec about what sort of fall-out to expect from some of the most surprising finale reveals when the series returns in Season 5.
The Hollywood Reporter: The Originals episode has been on the books for a while. What are your thoughts on Vampire Diaries fans finally getting the chance to see the potential new series?
Claire Holt: Of course. I was beyond excited to be able to continue this journey as Rebekah and continue working with Daniel [Gillies], Joseph and [executive producer] Julie [Plec]. It’s been a process; it’s been a long time coming. I’m very excited to see the hard work pay off.
THR: We saw a glimpse of Klaus in New Orleans, so how does Rebekah play into that world?
Holt: In The Originals, she’s faced with the decision to follow her brother or stay in Mystic Falls. She’s always been loyal to Klaus and she values family above all else, and I think it’s a really hard one for her because she has been betrayed by him, she is disappointed in him and is hurting still. That journey in this pilot will revolve around her decision to follow him, help him and remain loyal to the family or leave them behind.
THR: Will we see her in New Orleans at some point?
Holt: I’m not sure that’s something I can give away. There will definitely be conversations with Elijah about whether or not Rebekah will come and join them. I don’t think I can tell you whether she makes it or not.
CW’s The Vampire Diaries will return this week with a brand new episode in season four, titled American Gothic.
Rebekah (Claire Holt) clearly has no qualms about getting physical, as she shows a concert-goer who is in charge when he touches her golden mane.
In a new clip, the Original sister reveals her tendency for violence yet again. She happens to run into Katherine (Nina Dobrev), and it seems as though she’s had her hands full trying to convince a whole town to approve of her.
