Tonight's ending was bananas, and lucky for us, Julie Plec had already made the rounds to answer some of our burning questions. Now that the episode has aired on the East Coast, let's take a look at what she had to say about tonight's episode, and what it means for the remaining 2 episodes of season 3.
First up, Julie talked to E! Online, and shed some light on Bonnie's current state of mind. Plec said, "Bonnie's issue now is "'What the hell? I've got vampires telling me what to do, I've got other people telling me what to do and now I've got my freaking sisters, the witches, telling me what to do. Where's my free will and where's my choice and that's going to impact her character moving forward." (more...)
TV Guide was also at the preview screening, and got the opportunity to learn more about Alaric's new status. Julie said, "He's going to be hardcore, which is equally exciting and devastating because he's one of our heroes who's no longer one of our heroes. [In next week's episode] Alaric goes on a tear and no one is safe. There's going to be a lot of people at one point or another that you're not sure are going to make it to Season 4." (more...)
The Hollywood Reporter also included some of Plec's thoughts on how tonight's events will affect Jeremy in the future.
"Should Jeremy be so lucky to survive season three and be in season four, yeah, it's a big burden on him now, he is the man of the house, proverbially," Plec said. "He and his sister are all that they have. There's going to be a lot that he has to do to grow and keep himself together and be a champion for Elena as she is always trying to be a champion for him."

There you have it folks! What did you think of tonight's episode? Love it or hate it?
