It’s not clear whether Damon (Ian Somerhalder) talked Rebekah (Claire Holt) out of wanting the cure in The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 16, “Bring It On,” but Claire Holt told Zap2It that it would be interesting to see a human side of her character.
"This whole hype has been, since we found out there was a cure, Rebekah has been destined to take it,” says Claire. “Who knows, if and when she gets the cure, if that happens, if it comes into her possession, whether she'll really pull the trigger.”
It did seem like Bex took Damon’s words to heart when he told her, “Life sucks when you're ordinary. .. You're a vampire. You take that cure and become human? You're no one, nothing.”
In her Zap2It interview, Claire imagined how different Rebekah would be if she suddenly became human. “If she takes the cure, I guess she’s going to have to [change], because she can’t go around compelling dates and friends,” she points out.
With Bex packing her bags for New Orleans with her brothers for The Originals pilot, it wouldn’t make much sense for her to get the cure. If the Original sister were staying in Mystic Falls, we could see her becoming human and trying to get something going with Matt (Zach Roerig), but considering all the grand adventures the siblings would have if the spin-off gets picked up, we’re guessing something will make her think twice about giving up her fangs.
