In a new interview with TVD executive producer Caroline Dries, she confirms that now that the Other Side no longer exists, the Gilbert rings won’t work in season six!
“Without the Other Side, Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) can no longer contact ghosts, which is how they know it’s gone-gone,” Caroline told Alloy Entertainment. “This also means, as you guessed, the Gilbert Ring won’t work.”
“I didn’t really know until I was at the table read (laughs),” Paul told JJJ about Stefan’s shocking death in the last episode. “I thought it was fantastic. I love twists and turns. It really got me. Maybe he’ll come back, I don’t know. It was wonderful.”
FYI: Nina is wearing an Alberta Ferretti jacket and skirt, Christian Louboutin shoes, and Lina Noel earrings.
Don’t forget – The Vampire Diaries finale airs TONIGHT, May 15 @ 8PM on The CW!
In “Man on Fire”, Stefan (Wesley) tries to distract Elena (Nina Dobrev) from obsessing about the state of her relationship with Damon (Ian Somerhalder), while Bonnie (Graham) does her best to be realistic about how the changes happening on the Other Side will affect her existence as the Anchor.
Through flashbacks to election night, 1960, Enzo (Michael Malarkey) reveals to Elena, Stefan and Bonnie that he has learned what happened to his long-lost love, Maggie (Heather Hemmens), and then, with the unwilling help of Liv (Mitchell) and Luke (Chris Brochu), things take an ugly turn.
But in these new “Resident Evil” episode stills, given exclusively to JustJaredJr.com, Stelena shippers are given even the slightest sliver of hope as our favorite doppelgangers start dreaming about their destined life together. In a glimpse at that alternate reality, we see them kiss in what looks like cohabitating bliss.
Paul got behind the camera and directed this episode himself, which makes us all the more excited to see what else goes down in Mystic Falls, as the Travelers try to strengthen their hold over the supernatural town.
Elsewhere, Bonnie (Kat Graham) gets some advice about the Other Side from Grams (Jasmine Guy), Damon and Enzo (Michael Malarkey) bond over relationship woes, and the ever-entertaining trio of Matt (Zach Roerig), Tyler (Michael Trevino), and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) attempt to hinder the Travelers’ efforts.
Oh, and did we mention that Damon meets the all-powerful warlock Markos (Raffi Barsoumian)?!
