Julie Plec (TVD Producer) was recently interviewed by The VRO on Blog Talk Radio. She gave a few hints as to what will come in the second season of The Vampire Diaries. She has to keep all of the really juicy stuff quiet but what she does reveal is very interesting. Here are a few of her answers to some of the popular asked questions.
Will we move closer to the formation of Delena?”
The only thing I can say about them for season two, is that it’s going to be a very profound and powerful triangle that exists between our three heroes. Damon’s still got a long way to go until he’s man enough to deserve Elena. But he has a strong pull, a strong draw.”
(Man enough to deserve her?… So basically what I get form that is he’s going to change a little and maybe grow like his book character did until we get the actual Delena action. Oh but please don‘t make us wait too long…)
Sorry Stefan, but it’s going to happen… only a matter of time.
What impact will Katherine have on the triangle??
Plec says that “The triangle becomes more of a square because naughty Katherine is in the picture.”
Are Katherine and Elena related?
The answer is a solid yes. “Our position is very much that the bloodline is the Pierce bloodline. Isobel and Elena are very much related to Katherine. Elena looks like Katherine, they’re doppelgängers. That’s the big question that will continue to be asked deep into the second season”… and that‘s all she is going to give for that topic.
(Katherine wasn’t a good thing in the books and she’s already off to a craptastic start with her return so I don’t expect anything good to come from her. Eh but I won’t really miss Uncle John. Love square – which brother is still loving on her may surprise some but rumor has it Stefan isn‘t so over his first love. As for Damon, he made no attempt to find “the bitch“ after he learned she was alive and roaming free.)
(The Elena and Katherine relationship I am intrigued by. In the books there was a slight mention by Katherine that Elena must just be some descendent of her family so I wonder where they are taking this in the show.)
Will we learn more about Tyler and his affection for full moons?
“Tyler is crucial to this mythology. The werewolf element is crucial to this story. Season two is big time about the Lockwoods, so the first thing that happens is Mrs. Lockwood steps in as interim mayor.”
(If you’ve read the books it’s no secret, the Lockwoods are werewolves. I am wondering though if they will give the background of how it happened. In the books the werewolf trait was in his family since the settling of the original town (due to a ‘wolf attack‘). What is this going to do with Tyler’s ever changing attitudes? Tyler has been portrayed as a bit of an ass in the show but not as bad as in the books. They’ve softened his character on screen with the drama of the father-son relationship so I find myself not completely hating him. I’m looking forward to seeing how this story turns out!)
My, what big eyes you have Tyler… and such sensitive hearing, how strange.
Is Anna really dead?
Yes. “As far as we’re concerned, Anna is no longer in our world. Now, there’s flashbacks and all kinds of opportunities in the future, but Anna is dead.”
(For all of the people who were hoping to see more of Anna, you’ve got your answer now. The flashbacks mentioned can definitely be possible as I am sure we will see more with the Katherine story developing further.)
I don't think there is any way to come back from this.

Julie Plec and VRO interview
If you have the time, listen to the interview. Be warned though, the interview is 3 hours long. A lot of little hidden gems in it though – one is we will be seeing more of the Damon-Alaric bro-mance.
*** A little off topic but where the hell is MEREDITH? There have been mentions multiple times that she will appear (eventually) or that it is definitely a possibility… I think that her character would be great for season 2 and I know I’m not the only one out there who thinks this. The girl was important in the books and well, I love that she was the only one that scared Damon lmao that alone would be reason enough for her to be in the show! To see Damon scared of a human teenage girl… absolutely priceless. ***
