MTV: 'The Vampire Diaries' Spoilers

Executive producer Julie Plec told Hollywood Crush and a select handful of television press that she knows exactly how "The Vampire Diaries" will end someday.

During the writing process for season two, she and series co-creator Kevin Williamson sat in a hotel lobby and plotted the entire endgame. “Kevin and I came up with our end plan, sitting in the mall lobby of the W Midtown in Atlanta on a Sunday early in season two," she recalled. "We were tired, and stressed, and talked about the last moment of the show, the last character moments of the show, and both started to cry in the middle of the mall. We just felt like that was right. And so, assuming that he and I are both around...assuming that he and I are lucky enough to survive into season 20...then yeah. We know how we want it to end."

It was a lively and expressive Q&A session on The CW lot in Burbank, California, on Wednesday, which saw Julie chatting with press alongside Steven (Jeremy), Michael Trevino (Tyler), Candice Accola (Caroline) and Zach Roerig (Matt).CLICK HERE to read the rest of my report.
