TV Guide recently sat down with executive producer Julie Plec to talk about “By the Light of the Moon”. Besides talking about the episode and Tyler’s transformation, Julie comments on the curse of the sun and the moon and Elena’s “suicidal tendency” (couldn’t say it better myself, Damon).
We now know that Tyler is but a piece of the puzzle that Klaus needs to break the vampire curse sealed by the blood of Elena’s ancestors. “Once it became personalized to Elena and she realized she was at the center of this curse, now suddenly it’s very much a human story of a girl trying to balance, ‘How do I save and protect the people I love? Is the right thing to do here to be a martyr? I’ve got all these people in my life willing to die for me; can I do the same for them?'” Plec says.
