Executive producer Julie Plec teases, “Nobody knows the truth.” How is he going to keep that one a secret? “There’s going to be some explaining to do and it’s not necessarily going to make his return to his old life very easy,” she explains. The little Gilbert could always just shrug and say, “Well this is Mystic Falls.”
Speaking of going back to old lives, when Rebekah (Claire Holt) and Matt (Zach Roerig) part company, post-European vacation, he has to go back to the Mystic Grill! The horror!
“When Matt gets back to Mystic Falls, his whole world will have changed,” Julie tells TVLine. “I can’t wait to see what comes out of that adventure and how he re-adapts to life at Mystic Grill.” Poor guy! He really should’ve let Bex compel him some better job prospects.
But she might stick around Mystic Falls a little longer than expected, instead of heading to The Originals right away. “We do have the ability to use Rebekah on either show in the beginning,” says Julie. ” We will see when we start writing how much of her we’ll see before she heads off to New Orleans. … When we get back, we might see [them] still on their trip.”
Aw! We’d love to see the Mabekah show on the road!
