Back when Klaus (Joseph Morgan) was all up in Alaric’s (Matt Davis) business, we were worried that the handsome history teacher wouldn’t make out of the possession okay. The Vampire Diaries crew is faced with another body snatcher in Season 3, Episode 20, “Do Not Go Gentle.” (What is it about decade dances and taking over someone’s body?) While only evil Alaric is currently aware that Rebekah (Claire Holt) is being inhabited by her mama, Esther (Alice Evans), executive producer Julie Plec told TVLine that it won’t stay a secret for long.
Plec promises, “it all comes to a head right away in the next episode,” and everyone will figure out pretty quickly Rebekah isn’t really Rebekah. (Let’s hope Matt doesn’t try and put the moves on her, because we’ve never really pictured him as cougar bait.) Once they learn that they’re really dealing with Esther, events unfold rapidly.
“It’s a temporary problem,” Plec says of the Rebesther situation. “It will resolve itself quickly and effectively.” But not before Esther and evil Alaric cook up a scheme. “What she sees in [his] alter ego is someone who loathes vampires and could be a useful ally in her quest to kill her children,” Plec explains. “She has big plans for the hunter in him.”
Hm, we’d really love to see Esther get transferred to Alaric’s body next, because we’d love to see what kind of dance moves Matt Davis busts out while playing a 1,000-year-old female witch.
