Update: When asked by reporters about Nina's comment, executive producer Julie Plec said, "Statistically, yeah, maybe. We do tend to trim the ranks of the family once a year ... I'm not saying that everybody's safe. I'm just saying that that number she sort of threw out there was based on incomplete information.
When asked if any main characters will die this season, Nina didn’t hesitate to put the fear of Connor in us. “Yes, they will. Multiple main characters. At the moment there are talks of at least one or two,” she said. While she added that nothing was finalized, we aren’t comforted.
The next question was much less dire: Are viewers going to get more Elena-Damon (Ian Somerhalder) makeouts? “There will be definite moments of temptation!” Nina teased, adding that along with all her other emotions, the new vamp’s feelings for Damon are “heightened.”
No wonder Caroline (Candice Accola) is so mad at her bestie!
