“All I can say is…look, here’s the thing. There’s a lot of battling and warring in the shipping fandom over Caroline’s future and who she’s meant to be with,” Julie told us. “All we wanted to do was basically say, look, this was a relationship that was important to us too, so we’re not going to ignore it.”
Of course, this doesn’t mean Caroline is going to run off with Klaus. She is married to Stefan (Paul Wesley), after all. But it’s nice to know that the writers wanted to honor that relationship before all is said and done.
“We are fans of the show of the too, as writers, and we want to see each character and each relationship come to its proper end, however we want to define that,” Julie said. “And we thought long and hard about these decisions. We feel, as fans, we enjoy how it ends and we hope other people can see that too.”
The Vampire Diaries series finale airs Friday, March 10 @ 8PM on The CW.
