17:24 And on that emotional note, the curtain falls on Mystic falls (see what I did there?) and the Vampire Diaries panel is wrapped. Stay tuned to Digital Spy for more live-blogs, news and exclusive video content, direct from Comic Con 2013 in San Diego.

17:23 Ian gives a little speech, paying tribute to the fans: “It’s so cool to be in this room with you guys – this [panel] has got progressively bigger every single year. It’s really humbling.

“Thank you for supporting us and loving us – even when our story-lines and acting sucked! We all love you.”

17:20 The final fan question – and it’s a good one! Who would the writers kill off… if they *had* to? “That’s bold – I love that,” grins Ian. “Kill Damon – he’ll go to the Caribbean. He’ll call Elena, ‘Yo babe – come with me!'”

17:19 If the cast and crew could bring back one character from the dead, who would it be and why? Ian picks Alaric (Matt Davis): “My drinking buddy – I’d bring him back!”

17:14 Will Klaus – now star of spinoff series The Originals return to the main show? “Klaus went and got his own damn show – we’re a little bitter-sweet about that, to be honest with you,” quips Ian. Julie says of a potential comeback: “Never say never – he’s going to have his hands full in New Orleans. The question is, will Caroline have her hands full in New Orleans?” – ding!

17:12 Speaking of which, the Vampire Diaries 100th episode will be a “nude musical”, says Ian. What a joker. He’s definitely joking. We *think* he’s definitely joking.

17:11 A big question from the next fan, who wants to know if we’ll see a Vampire Diaries movie: “We approach every episode like it’s a movie,” Julie replies.

“We give it everything we can. If there’s ever a big-screen Vampire Diaries, we feel like we’ve already made a hundred of our own.”

17:08 Fan Q&A time – why did Elena give the cure (yep, that word again) to someone who didn’t deserve it? “Katherine was such a nuisance,” says Nina. “[Elena wanted] to make her powerless… I mean, she killed her brother, y’know!”

17:07 Ian is happy that the cure plot arc has been resolved with Katherine’s transformation. “If I had to say the word ‘cure’ one more time…” he laments. “And I love the band…” – he turns on Julie, “You ruined the word!”

17:05 There’ll be a “fun” twist on how Jeremy returns from the dead – Elena has to school him on a convincing cover-story!

What’s more, Jeremy and Damon are now “roomies” with Elena at college: “It’s Damon’s tutelage – the only way to learn,” says Ian. “He’ll get him a fake ID, take him to strip clubs…”

17:04 “Seeing her come to terms with the loss of her own life will be part of her emotional journey as well – it’s really sad!” adds Julie.

17:03 Next season, the late, lamented Bonnie is on the other side: “To have only one person [Jeremy] that she can connect with, it forces this intimacy… it’ll be interesting to see where that goes,” says Kat Graham.

17:02 What about Elena’s further romantic prospects? “is there anyone she hasn’t made out with?” asks Nina. “Me!” yells a hopeful male audience member – it wasn’t me, honest.

17:01 With Klaus gone, the path is apparently clear for Caroline and Tyler, right? The audience don’t seem to keen on that idea. Or maybe there’s a new man on the horizon? “There are men at college,” says Candice Accola. “And some are attractive!”

16:59 “Katherine is the best vampire, but the worst human,” Julie says of that character’s transformation.

Elena, meanwhile, will be heading to college. “Why are you pursuing higher education?” asks Paul. “You’re a vampire – you can do whatever you want. Take four… six… a hundred years off.”

16:55 Is Silas season five’s Big Bad? “Sometimes a Big Bad is vanquished by a Bigger Bad,” teases Julie. “What?! Whatever!” cries an indignant Paul, clearly enjoying being Public Enemy No. 1.

16:55 Bit of trivia – Ian still has some fake blood on his right arm, since he was still shooting the show at 6am this morning – now that’s dedication!

16:55 Paul Wesley admits that he is happy to be playing Silas: “I like being evil… I’m sorry, I do! I always wanted to revisit the Ripper years, but we already did that… so this is another direction to go in.”

16:54 A modest Ian claims that he was surprised by Elena’s choice, since Damon never gets the girl – “Don’t downplay the smoulder, ‘Halder!” retorts Paul Wesley – immediately winning the panel.

16:53 So has Damon finally got the girl for good? “I don’t think anybody on the show lives happily ever after,” says Ian. “This year, we keep [he and Elena] happy for a while, amidst all the terrible things around them, trying to tear them apart,” Plec reveals.

16:51 Paul Wesley’s squeals and yelps – or rather the audience’s – don’t quite match Ian’s. Sorry, Stelena fans!

16:50 Ian Somerhalder just blew the audience a kiss and there’s a frequency I’ll never hear again. He pulled out Julie Plec’s chair for her like a real gent… oh, and there goes another.

16:49 My ear-drums have barely recovered from the True Blood panel, but I’m betting they’re about to take another thrashing… here come the best-looking cast on television, plus exec producers Julie Plec and Caroline Dries!

00:31It’s almost time for some Vampire Diaries SEASON FIVE scoop! What’s next for Elena and Damon? How will Katherine adapt to becoming human again? And will Stefan escape his watery grave? Keep it here to find out..
