It’s not going to be easy for the Salvatore brothers in The Vampire Diaries season 7. After all, their mother’s new “family,” the heretics, are going to be around. But can everyone get along? (The answer is no.) BuddyTV was at San Diego Comic-Con to find out what to expect for Stefan this season from Paul Wesley.

Watch the video interview with Paul Wesley:

Here are the highlights:

  • He’s ready for a “shift in dynamic.”
  • With Elena gone, this could be a “fortuitous opportunity to create something new.”
  • Nobody gets along with the heretics, according to Wesley. “They’re the baddies of season 7.”
  • Lily could try to get between the Salvatore brothers.
  • The Salvatore brothers are going to react differently to their mother. “Stefan’s going to be prone to forgiveness and naivete, as opposed to Damon, who’s cynical and suspicious and wary.”
  • “I think she gets her life in order pretty quickly. By that, I think she gives him the green light,” Wesley said of Caroline and Stefan. He can’t guarantee that, but it is what he hears.
  • “They’ve already murdered people and had sex together, so I don’t see what else they can do.”

If it’s on TV — especially if it’s a procedural or superhero show — chances are Meredith watches it. She has a love for all things fiction, starting from a young age with ER and The X-Files on the small screen and the Nancy Drew books. Arrow kicked off the Arrowverse and her true passion for all things heroes. She’s enjoyed getting into the minds of serial killers since Criminal Minds, so it should be no surprise that her latest obsession is Prodigal Son.
