So Stefan has a whole new reason to be mad at himself this season.
Paul Wesley: To be guilt-raided and cry. To cry like a little baby! Yes!
Have you cried yet this season?
Paul Wesley: I’m constantly crying, I’m going to cry right after this interview. Um, I cry every time Stefan leaves the dark-side and goes to ‘good Stefan’. I want him to stay as the ripper. I love it. I’m hoping that the guilt turns him into the– I’m hoping the guilt of what he — what happened — makes him hate himself to turn to ripper Stefan. Yeah!
You think there is a potential…
Paul Wesley: Ask Julie Plec! Convince her!
Sending her flowers?
Paul Wesley: I know. I’m, like, wooing Julie. No, I don’t know if that’s going to happen, because I feel like Stefan had his season 3 ride of darkness. I think season 4 is going to be more of a grey-zone.
In terms of his guilt, I’m sure Damon’s not helping with that.
Paul Wesley: Yeah, Damon’s throwing it in his face. We saw in the little teaser, he was like, ‘now we have another quarterback,’ you know. He always gets his snazzy lines. Um, yeah Damon’s definitely sort of, now walking around thinking that he’s the — ‘Hey, if you were me, I would have done this.’ — and he has valid reason, it makes sense, you know. Yeah, and you know, I think it’s important that the audience knows, and I have to know, as an actor why would I leave her down there. You know, the whole thing is I didn’t mean for her to die, I was just grabbing Matt first, ’cause that’s what she wanted. He was going to come get her, but… Oops! *Laughs* Oopsies! She’s dead!
