Candice Accola Spills Spoilers About ‘TVD’ Midseason Finale and Beyond


There’s just one more episode before the break, and then our favorite vampire show will be coming to an end in 2017. Don’t worry, though, there’s still plenty of excitement ahead because Candice Accola is spilling some major The Vampire Diaries Season 8 spoilers about the midseason finale and beyond.

We already know there’s about to be one super awkward Christmas party in Mystic Falls, but Caroline Forbes herself has these other four secrets to drop.

1. There’s Going to Be Another Time Jump

We already did this once before with The Vampire Diaries, and not that long ago, but Candice says to prepare ourselves for another time jump when the show returns in January.

“When we come back in January there’s going to be a time jump. Not another three-year one, but it’s a time jump,” Candice tells TVLine.

So, what does that mean? A week? A month? A year? Even longer than three years?

We are desperate for more info, Candice!

2. Matt Donovan Is Going to Play a Big Role

Kelly Donovan was going to be a succubus, all the way back in Season 1 (which would make dear ole Matt an incubus), but it seems Julie Plec hasn’t given up on the Donovan family twists just yet.

We do know Sybil coerced Damon to find and (try to) kill Matt’s father, back before we knew his real identity. Now, Matt’s dad is back spending the holidays with the Salvatores, Sybil, Caroline, and Matt.

Matt Donovan TVD

So, will Mr. Donovan/Maxwell and Matt factor into the final plotline that will end the series? Candice thinks so.

“Basically, you’re going to get a lot of answers to questions you’ve had for a while,” Candice says to TVLine.

“And we, of course, pose more questions. You’ll learn a lot about Matt’s dad, and the history of [the Donovan] family in Mystic Falls.”

Zach Roerig agrees, in an interview with Alloy Entertainment:

“We finally find out the truth about Matt’s family history and it will fill him with a sense of peace because so many things will finally start to make sense,” he says.

“You also see where Matt gets his inherent strength from and why he has always felt such an integral attachment to this town, even though he’s not necessarily from one of the “founding families.”

3. Stefan Will Come Face to Face with Cade

We know Stefan and Damon agreed to take the place of Alaric and Caroline’s twins (and Sybil and Seline) as Cade’s servants. Now it seems Stefan will get to look his new master Cade in the eye.

Talking about the midseason finale, Candice tells TVLine: “You’ll also see Damon and Stefan, and what happens next for them.”

In a sneak peek scene, we see some of that come to fruition:

Sadly, the encounter isn’t to say Stefan is free. Rather, Cade wants to tell Stefan why he’s the perfect person for the job, and he wants to show him why.

Does this mean we’ll get flashes to Ripper Stefan? We know it’s coming.

4. Bonnie and Enzo Will Have “Moments”

Ugh these two have been to (not literal) hell and back as a couple — can they just have their happily ever after now?

It’s not clear whether this is good or bad news for the ship right now, but Candice says Bonnie and Enzo will have “some moments.”

Hopefully those moments are happy, kissy moments and not sad, breakup moments, right?
