'The Vampire Diaries' Bosses Reveal Meaning Behind Show's 'Epic' Journey

If you’re a big Vampire Diaries fan, you know the importance of the word “epic” on the show.

Not only was it one of the lines that Elena (Nina Dobrev) delivered to Stefan (Paul Wesley) in the second episode, but the series finale is titled “I Was Feeling Epic.”

“I did a lot of the early writing and Kevin [Williamson, executive producer] did a lot of the re-writing,” executive producer Julie Plec told EW. “We were trying to figure out the show as we went and I wrote the scene where Elena says, ‘We met, and we talked, and it was epic, but then the sun came up and reality set in.’ And I remember Kevin circling it on his script and giving it a triple check. A triple check from Kevin Williamson is, ‘I love this line.’”

Then we heard Lexi (Arielle Kebbel) say it to her BFF Stefan a few episodes later.

Kevin explained, “That line became Julie’s favorite line of the entire show. From the very very beginning, we kept saying in the writers’ room: ‘It has to be epic. We want an epic moment.’ This whole show has always been about epic moments and that was the line.”

“I Was Feeling Epic” airs on Friday, March 10 @ 8PM on The CW.
