Anything on The Vampire Diaries finale? — Alicia
After eight seasons, co-creators Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson knew they had to answer one question when they sat down to write the series finale: What do they want the show to be about? “This show’s always been about family; this show’s always been about huge, emotional loss; it’s always been about death and grief,” Williamson says. “It started on those foundations and from it we built a love story, but what are we truly trying to say about these people and how do we want to put an end to them?
