The Originals‘ Claire Holt (Rebekah) sets the record straight on why she left

“I wasn’t pushed out,” she said. “I didn’t quit midseason. This was something we discussed form the start. I made a life choice, not a career choice. I made a choice to come home for a while. I realized I hadn’t seen people that I loved and cared about for a while. It was so tough for me.”

The Originals‘ Executive Producer Julie Plec discusses the possibilities of Rebekah (Claire Holt) returning via flashbacks or The Vampire Diaries

THE ORIGINALS shocked viewers when the show said goodbye to one of the core family members, Claire Holt’s Rebekah, in the March 11th episode of the freshman series. (Holt’s decision to leave the show was what prompted the writers to send Rebekah out of town.) But THE ORIGINALS is a series that, so far, has relied on flashbacks to the siblings’ past tensions and relationships to explain and expand on what is going on in the present. So before Saturday night’s PaleyFest panel for THE ORIGINALS and its mothership series, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, I asked THE ORIGINALS boss Julie Plec if it was plausible to expect to see Rebekah in those flashbacks — or if it was possible for her to turn up on THE VAMPIRE DIARIES again.

Below are two new articles that contain spoilers for The Vampire Diaries‘ season 5

1. Damon and Elena are back on, kinda.
Fans of Vampire Diaries saw in the most recent episode that “Delena,” as the pairing is lovingly termed, reverted back to their old ways, hooking up after having a deep conversation about their “toxic” romance. The likelihood of them learning from the past remains slim, at least according to Somerhalder and Dobrev. “They have to put on their big-boy pants and big-girl pants,” Somerhalder said of those conversations. Dobrev added: “The problem is they keep taking their pants off and that keeps getting in the way of things.”

2. Welsey got an unexpected gift during his directorial debut.
Wesley makes his directorial debut in the April 17 episode, an experience the actor called “amazing.” “I was expecting them to really haze me,” Wesley said of his co-stars. Turns out, the joke was on him. “My first day of directing, I walk into my dressing room and there’s a wrapped gift,” he recalled. Dobrev had written Wesley a nice letter congratulating him on the “next phase” of his career. What was in the wrapped present? “A giant portrait of Nina Dobrev,” Wesley said. “It was huge and now it’s hanging in my dressing room.”

3. Yes, Katherine is really dead.
Dries confirmed that Katherine is gone from the show, even though fans speculated after her final appearance that she may be in limbo following her getting pulled out of the church by a far greater force. It was important that the writers dream up a completely different death for Katherine, who has been “the center of the series in my opinion,” Dries said. And when asked whether Katherine could return at some point, “Never say never, but it was such a profound exit for the character.” (Fun fact: Plec revealed that the church used for that scene is the same one featured on The Originals.)

[The Hollywood Reporter] has shared five other spoilers, and this is one of them; Caroline and Stefan go back to the early days, and is there more than friendship for them?

Nina Dobrev also shares her thoughts on Elena’s troubles, and Nina losing Katherine. Watch the embed below;
