‘The Vampire Diaries’ season 4 spoilers: Zach Roerig talks Rebekah, Matt’s future

MattOne of the great things about having so many characters on a show like “The Vampire Diaries” is that it allows you all sorts of interesting perspectives to pull from. However, one of the major disadvantages is that often, many of these perspectives get lost or forgotten in the midst of everything else going on. At times this year, this has happened with Matt Donovan more so than just about any other character on the show.

On Thursday night, the character is going to have a big storyline courtesy of the episode “Pictures of You,” which focuses on the Mystic Falls prom, and what happens when Matt actually gets an opportunity to watch some supernatural beings (gasp!) be human for a change.

So does this mean that a hookup is on the horizon? We know that there have been some sparks between Matt and Rebekah on the show, but the Wickery Bridge incident from last year really put the skids on things … at least until now. Speaking to Alloy Entertainment, Zach Roerig explains that this episode could bring something different out of Claire Holt’s character than what we have seen as of late:

“I think that at some point Matt will understand why Rebekah caused the [Wickery Bridge] accident and acts the way she does. He has a couple of honest moments with her at prom. There’s still something there and we’ll see how that plays out. I don’t think he’ll ever forget what she did but do I think he’ll forgive her? Yea, I do actually. At this point, everyone’s done a bunch of messed up things so everyone’s conscience is clouded. [Moreover,] everyone has a crazy rationale behind what that they did so a beautiful blonde girl could probably easily persuade Matt.”
