Is graduation canceled in The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 23? Over Caroline’s (Candice Accola) undead body! Executive producer Julie Plec tells TVLine that Mystic Falls’ most school-spirited student isn’t about to let a little thing like ghosts ruin her big day.
Julie teases that Caroline says, “Come hell or high water, hell will freeze over before I let anybody cancel graduation.” That sounds like our blond go-getter! Plus, she’s probably just so happy they all managed to scrape together enough excused absence slips to get everyone their diplomas. Those kids miss a lot of school.
As the synopsis for the episode says, Mystic Falls is crawling with vengeful spirits. Naturally, most of the gang wants to skip the cap-and-gown ceremony and deal with the beings from the Other Side. Not Caroline.
“The instinct to miss graduation is going to be on [everyone's] minds because there’s greater things afoot,” says Julie. “And Caroline, as we know, finds these moments and high school events very precious and gets very angry when anybody tries to mess with them.”
Uh-oh. You do not want to get between Caroline and her pomp and circumstance.
