It’s time for some spoilers! The week’s episode came to a dramatic end when Stefan ripped out manic Enzo’s heart. Truthfully, Enzo played a huge role in his own death, but that’s besides the point. We saw Enzo cross over to the Other Side, but not completely. With the Other Side disintegrating, it seems that there is a loophole that’s letting him stick around and get some revenge on the Salvatore brothers. Here’s what Ian Somerhalder and Caroline Dries said we should expect from the episodes leading up to the season finale.
So why isn’t Enzo dead? Mainly because Ian Somerhalder threatened that if Dries kills off Enzo, he’s going to quit. But all jokes aside, Dries admitted, “His story isn’t over — he’s going to become kind of this ghost villain moving forward and we’ll see him all the way through the finale as the bad guy. He’s pissed that he’s dead, but that’s amplified by the fact that around him, people are being sucked into the ether just like Vicki, so his concern is, ‘I want out.” How much damage can the hunk cause from other side as he tries to find a way to escape? Well… a lot apparently.
“You just wait, you just wait and see — he’s determined to make Damon’s life and Stefan’s life a living hell,” Dries said.
All of this because Damon killed the love of his life 50 years prior without knowing it.
“I think its the same trajectory as with Damon and Katherine, that deep, deep, love… it’s a delicate thing. I wish Damon could shake him and say let it go. Let’s have some drinks and go to a strip club and be done,” Somerhalder said.
And there’s our next possible hint? No, not strip clubs by Somerhalder did joke that the season finale would take place in Vegas.
Because of the Other Side being on the brink of destruction, Enzo has a lot more flexibility as a ghost than previous ghosts had. He’s able to travel between sides and apparently even talk to Damon. Dries teased that during a certain point, Damon will make Enzo a promise to get him out of there, but under so much duress, he doesn’t really know how to achieve it; how to act on his promise.
Enzo is also our direct link to seeing what’s really happening on the Other Side. While Bonnie is the anchor, Enzo will be the one to explain to us whats happening and how we can stop it. He’ll also be the master villain until the season finale. I don’t know about you but something about Enzo being a villain is just not working for me. I liked him better when he had a bad-boy bromance with Damon.
Dries did reveal that the ultimate goal by season 5’s end is to completely get rid of the Other Side. That means when someone dies, they’ll die for good. She also teased that we can expect at least 3 more character deaths. Who are your guesses? I think Bonnie is going to die for sure. And hopefully, this time it’ll be for good. How many times can someone seriously die and come back to life before it’s just old?
We also see the Mystic Falls gang more united going into the season finale as their trying to protect their home, which is being ripped away by the Travelers.
The travelers storyline has been one that’s confused me pretty much this whole season. This week we found out that all they really want is to reverse the witches curse so that they could finally find a place to stay and call home. Really, it’s that simple? Dries say’s yes. “We were trying to give the Traveler’s the simplest goal in the world, of them saying we just want a place to call home. We usually get criticized for making it so confusing,” she added. Well, now you’re getting criticized because I feel like this whole build up has to be for something more than just territory? I mean come on! Really?
Additionally, we wonder what’s going to happen to the people on the Other Side? Will they all be ripped away into eternity like Katherine and Vicki? And what happens when that happens? Where are they know? Are we really closing the door on all of them forever?
As for exes Damon and Elena– they’ve been trying to stay away from each other and they’ll basically be thrown in a cabin in the woods together and won’t have any other choice. “The push and the pull; it’s always been this way with Elena… it really does make a very dynamic component to their relationship. It creates chemistry, all this cool stuff. It’s pretty evident and it’s there to stay for a while. It’s always uncomfortable,” Somerhalder said. Hmm… do you think that these two will end up together in the season finale? Probably not…. but that doesn’t mean the chemistry isn’t there.
“They don’t have to say anything, but the chemistry exists. Even the storyline of them not dating, the chemistry exists,” added Dries.
As for Tyler, he’s going to become a more prominent character as he’s been suffering through his relationship angst and finally missing Caroline. Except that Caroline won’t be single forever and it seems that she will set her sights on someone and it will cause a rift for her and a friend. Ummm Elena?? Caroline’s totally going to move in for Stefan and it’ll be wonderful!!!! *Fingers crossed* Sorry Tyler!
As for the finale, Dries hopes that the viewers will see this giant thing happen and than when season 6 rolls around, we’ll see people coming back together and reuniting. Ah!! Are you excited for the remainder of the season?? What are your thoughts?

‘Cruel Summer’ Renewed for a Second Season at Freeform Ahead of Finale
Cruel Summer may be airing its season finale tonight, but fans can already look forward to more spine-tingling thrills.
Freeform has picked up the psychological drama for a second season, according to TVLine.
“Renewing Cruel Summer for a Season 2 was an easy decision,” Freeform President Tara Duncan said.
“It’s the biggest series debut in Freeform’s history and the audience response has been overwhelmingly positive. [Executive producers] Jessica [Biel], Michelle [Purple] and [showrunner] Tia [Napolitano] did a phenomenal job telling an addictive story that’s tapped into the cultural zeitgeist. I’m excited to see where they take the series next,” she added.
Napolitano also noted: “Collaborating with Iron Ocean, our dedicated crew, charismatic cast, and our partners at Freeform and eOne has been the best first showrunning experience I could ask for. I am beyond grateful and excited by the amazing fan response to our show! Continuing to bottle Cruel Summer magic for a Season 2 is an absolute dream come true.”
The freshman drama stars Olivia Holt (Kate Wallis) and Chiara Aurelia (Jeanette Turner) whose worlds collide when Kate goes missing and later accuses Jeanette of knowing who kept her captive and not telling the police. Jeanette is adamant that she never saw Kate in captivity. The story is told over three timeliness in 1993, 1994, and 1995.
The mystery is set to be resolved in tonight’s finale.
Per Deadline, Biel revealed that the mystery could return with a new story and the same characters or feature a new cast of characters.
