As fans of The Vampire Diaries brace for the season 5 finale and hope it ends with Paul Wesley’s Stefan returning from The Other Side, the cast has one recommendation: “Bring a box of tissues because you’re going to cry,” Nina Dobrev tells EW. “I did.”
While Wesley is tight-lipped on the tearjerker, we did get the following out of him at The CW’s Upfront in New York: Viewers will see more familiar faces. Will Stefan interact with them? “Maybe,” he says. Will the hour bring an end to The Other Side storyline? “I sure as hell hope so,” he jokes. And what if Stefan’s still on it if/when it ceases to exist? “Well, s–t happens,” he quips.
Time for questions the man can actually answer? We thought so, too. Watch Wesley take our Pop Culture Personality Test below. He reveals his first celebrity crush, the movie scene that scared him as a child (particularly funny when you think about how Stefan died in season 5’s penultimate episode), his go-to karaoke song, and his most prized pop culture possession. No tears. All laughs. We swear.
The Vampire Diaries season finale airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
