Now that The Vampire Diaries' Matt and Rebekah are jetting off for the summer together, will they continue their relationship when the series, and its spin-off The Originals, returns in the fall?
"Julie [Plec] has left the door open for us to have cross-overs and for each of the characters to swap between the show," Claire Holt told TVGuide.com.

Although Rebekah has had a new companion in Matt (Zach Roerig), Holt says she'll have to fix her relationship with brother Klaus (Joseph Morgan) in order to survive New Orleans.
Elena's humanity is back, but has the old Elena really returned?
"Without a doubt she's forever changed, but she's on a slow climb back to returning to an Elena driven by love, compassion and loyalty," Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec tells TVGuide.com.
After Elena (Nina Dobrev) acted like a brat — and that's putting it nicely — for the last few episodes, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) exhausted all their options before ultimately killing Matt (Zach Roerig). Fortunately he had his life-saving ring on, but Elena wasn't made aware of that until the emotions came flooding back. Now that she can feel again, will she return to being the newbie vamp she was prior to her brother's death? And how far will she go to succeed in her latest mission to kill Katherine? Plec spills below.
The Vampire Diaries premiere is finally upon us, and what better way to celebrate than to share a few snippets from Thursday night's episode (8/7c, CW)?
How many Damon-centric memories will come back to Elena now that she's in transition? How many times is poor Matt (Zach Roerig) beat up for being saved over Elena? Watch our Season 2 premiere of The Vampire Diaries Bite below for those answers and more!
Nina Dobrev, Kat Graham
"Am I dead?" The Vampire Diaries' Elena (Nina Dobrev) asks Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) when she wakes up after her accident on the CW drama's Season 4 premiere.

The Vampire Diaries has added one more vampire.
Elena met her fate in the Season 3 finale after her fateful trip over Wickery Bridge left her on a slab in the morgue. But don't worry: She will be back next season, along with her portrayer, Nina Dobrev, who joined the rest of the cast and executive producers Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson at their Comic-Con panel, moderated by TV Guide Magazine's Debra Birnbaum, on Saturday dish about the upcoming season. (Turns out, Elena was supposed to become a vampire in Season 2, so this has been a long time coming!)
When The Vampire Diaries returns for Season 4, the friendship between Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Caroline (Candice Accola) that fans have been clamoring for will finally be further explored.
"I always look at Caroline as Stefan's future [best friend] Lexi [Arielle Kebbel]," executive producer Julie Plec said during this weekend's ATX Television Festival panel, moderated by this reporter. "You've seen little pockets of a friendship spark between them, and I see Caroline in the long run of the series becoming that important in Stefan's life."
Vampire Diaries, Michael Trevino
How long will The Vampire Diaries' Michael Trevino get to play Klaus? If it's up to the actor, it could be a while.
"I'd like to take a crack at playing Klaus. I think it would be fun," Trevino told TVGuide.com. "Joseph Morgan could take a break."
