‘The Vampire Diaries’ season 5: Series boss talks Steven R. McQueen [spoiler]

Steven R. McQueenAt the end of Thursday night’s “The Vampire Diaries,” there were quite a few shockers that we’re sure you are still reeling over. What was one of them? Having an opportunity to find out that with the death of one character (in Bonnie) leads to the life of another (Jeremy).

Did you expect to have Stephen R. McQueen’s character brought back to life? While this move is definitely shocking, there are probably still at least a few characters out there who will appreciate it, especially a certain someone named Elena. Speaking to Zap2It about this final episode of the season, executive producer Julie Plec tries to make it clear as to why she wanted to ensure that Elena had a little bit more of a chance at happiness with a family member that she deeply cares about still around. However, she was also prepared for a critical backlash that comes with it:

“[Getting Jeremy back] resets her, in a way, where she can now get on with her life and live like the Elena that we know … Critically, you can look at something and go, ‘Well, that’s a take-back, it’s not fair,’ but emotionally, I think, it’s a positive. We might get hammered for it. We’ll see. I’m hoping people will be so glad to see our Elena pull her life back together, they’ll accept it.”

Considering that this is a fantasy series, we really don’t have much of a problem with this. What we are a little bit more confused about is the idea of Silas being Stefan’s doppelganger. Considering the fact that Silas already had an ability to change his appearance, is that really this special?

What do you think about Jeremy’s resurrection, and are you excited again about the new season? If you want to read our review for Thursday night’s episode, you can do so over at the link here.
