“The Vampire Diaries” bosses haven’t quite started writing Season 4 yet, so when we caught up with Candice Accola in New York for the CW’s Upfronts, we couldn’t prod her for scoop. (We tried, we swear!)
As a huge fan of the show, though, she could offer a little speculation on where Season 4 might take the characters who have already been through so much. “I don’t know what the theme yet is for next season. Last year I knew
that it was going to be the year of the originals, but… if I had to
guesstimate, and I’m totally blowing smoke here, but what’s going to be
the straw that breaks the camel’s back?”
The Mystic Falls gang has handled themselves miraculously well in the face of torture, death, and heartbreak — and this season, Candice thinks we’ll finally see some of them lose their cool. We’re particularly looking forward to whether Elena handles her vampire transformation with her usual stable attitude.
Candice wonders, “Elena handles everything so well… What’s going to be everyone’s breaking point? How is everyone keeping it so together? It’s going to be interesting to see how Elena handles this, because you assume [she’ll handle it] wonderfully and beautifully and with grace.”
Check out the video interview below for some insight into how Caroline might react to Klaus possessing Tyler — plus, Candice dishes on some behind-the-scenes fun with the “TVD” cast and a little girl talk about Joseph Morgan.
