Looks like Matt had a way bigger connection to Mystic Falls than he ever even knew!
“I think it’s very interesting for Matt looking back at … all those moments where he felt like an outcast, maybe, or kind of a charity case by the Gilberts who took it upon themselves to take him in,” he shared.
“I think that’s also why he feels so sure about what he’s doing,” Zach adds.
“Being sheriff and following through on this compulsion where he’s always felt this need to protect the town and do what was right and wondering to himself, ‘Why? Why is he doing this?” I think it’s nice to finally be reassured that what he’s been doing is for the right reasons.”
He added about how Matt will play a part in stopping Cade: “He’s very integral in the plans to kill Cade. And also, Matt physically threatens Cade. He’s still a force to be reckoned with, whether he be a human or not.”
