The Vampire Diaries’ executive producer Julie Plec is one busy lady — and her hiatus is no exception. (In fact, we hear she’s already planning Season 4!) When she spoke to Entertainment Weekly, she told them everything (well not everything, but a lot) we can expect to see in the last four episodes of Season 3. She gave so many details, we only included a fraction of them here. Check out the rest of the spoiler-y goodness at EW!

Here are some of Julie’s thoughts on the last four episodes:

Season 3, Episode 19, “Heart of Darkness
“With Stefan’s encouragement, Elena is trying to understand and explore this relationship that she’s developed with Damon. There is some series-wide epicness that goes down in this episode, for sure.”

Season 3, Episode 20, “Do Not Go Gentle”
“All I can say is that I’ve watched the episode five times now through the editorial process, and every single time I end up crying like a baby with Elena.”

Season 3, Episode 21, “Before Sunset”
“We’ve got basically everybody stepping into battle because the enemy, who I can’t define for you at this moment because the April 19 episode tees it all up, is taking some pretty relentless and hardcore extremes against our heroes.”

Season 3, Episode 22, “The Departed”
“We do flashback to a time when Elena’s parents were still alive and when she was a cheerleader dating Matt, the football player, and before Bonnie knew she was a witch and thought she was just uncannily psychically available to predict fashion trends. It’s just a really poignant, sweet and bittersweet reflection back to a time when life was so much simpler for all of our humans and former humans."
