“Vampire Diaries” Season 7 finale cliffhanger will probably have many fans chalking the days down waiting until Season 8.

Amidst all the drama to get to and do away with the Everlasting, the special Steroline moment sure must have made fans hopeful. TV Line sat down with executive producer Julie Plec to look back at all the drama and surprises or shocks that the finale brought for us.

So when questioned about whether Caroline and Stefan will enjoy a good run in their relationship before they face the next hurdle, Plec shared:

“You know, I always say that the saddest and truest rule of television is that there’s no drama in happy. But there’s also the exception to that rule, which is that sometimes happiness is as comforting as soup when you’re sick. I’d really like to see Caroline and Stefan enjoy some of that comfort for as long as we can eek it out before they have to stumble across another obstacle.”

She added:

“Well, Stefan’s really going to need her. He’s very determined to get Damon back on track, and it’s not going to be an easy task. He’s going to need someone there for moral support.”

However, it isn’t clear how things between Alaric and Caroline will be from here on and what will be the arrangement between the two, on this Plec said:

“Alaric made a beautiful statement, saying, “We are family, and we will always be family.” He believes that in his heart, and that’s what she needed to hear. I fundamentally believe that they’ll be able to keep their unconventional family together and to stay strong for the girls and for each other.”

There is no doubt that the new villain, the mysterious monster, will have a major role when the next season kicks off.  Fans may be expecting to see the crew get back together again and this time, to save Damon and Enzo.
