'The Vampire Diaries': Nina Dobrev teases tonight's episode, says drama with Stefan will 'come to a head'

When we left Mystic Falls last week, Stefan and Elena shared an emotionally-charged (not to mention one-sided!) phone call that, as Nina Dobrev tells EW, gave Elena just the boost she’d need to continue looking for Stefan (Paul Wesley) in tonight’s episode. “If anything, this phone call was a sign that — despite everyone in her life trying to tell her to back off — she has to keep fighting and fight what she cares about and fight for her love. She’s a very determined young woman,” says Dobrev.

And the second episode shows just that, as Elena and Alaric (Matthew Davis) set off on a road trip to follow up on a lead she has on Stefan’s whereabouts — despite some initial resistance from Alaric. “This is a very big episode for Elena and Alaric because Elena is basically asking Alaric to step up and man up in many ways. She wants him to stop deflecting responsibility and stop sulking and stop being mopey,” she says. “Elena deals with death and tragic experiences a lot, but she also knows she can’t sit and let that stop her life. She has to move on and move forward. And she wants to inspire and encourage him to do the same.”

Stefan’s efforts to stay away, however, will hit a snag in tonight’s episode as Elena finds herself in a hairy situation. “Stefan finds out about [their journey] and he has to protect Elena because she gets in a situation where she could get in danger.” But will the two actually cross paths face-to-face? “They may, they might not,” Dobrev says coyly.

Dobrev adds that in the next few episodes, Elena will not let her quest to get Stefan back for good fall by the wayside — but it also won’t drag out. The show will continue in its tradition, moving plots along at a satisfying pace. “It’s going to come to a head at one point … in the next couple of episodes. We’re not going to drag it out for the next 15 episodes, but it’s also not going to be right away.”

But even though fans hoping for a little Elena and Stefan action might find themselves waiting a bit, Caroline (Candice Accola) and Tyler (Michael Trevino) ‘shippers certainly got a treat at the end of last week’s episode when the two got hot and heavy. (Well, it was a treat before Caroline was captured by Tyler’s mom.) It was a scene that had even Dobrev raving. “They’re sworn emenies — the werewolves and the vampires — and when you put them together and you have that chemistry, it makes for a steamy hot sex scene. And it was awesome. I was surprised how far they went with that … almost like True Blood!” she says.

Vampire Diaries airs tonight at 8 p.m. E.T.

    quick question: does ric still have his magic ring? i can’t remember…thanks! :)

  • Shannon

    No, Nina…..Your show is far better than True Blood.

    • baj24

      Agreed! TVD is so much more satisfying than TB.

    • J

      Very much agreed.

    • Beauty

      True! TVD is WAYYY better than TB, TB is just vampire porn.

    • Myprettypony

      No way! Eric is way hotter than either of those boys and you can actually see his bare @ss, which I thoroughly appreciate. And I don’t have to see a bunch of “high school kids” drinking alcohol. Seriously, what the frak is that about? You’d think that the legal drinking age is 16 or something with all of the drinking you see on high school dramas. Anyway bare butt for me and naked women for my husband and that makes for a vampire drama that we both can agree on

      • Beauty

        Like I said TB is just vampire porn.

      • Andrea

        @myprettypony: riiiiight, because underage drinking is something that NEVER takes place in real life. how dare they portray that in television. because vampire porn is much more believable.

        and keep in mind, this is coming from a TB fan as well

  • georgie

  • Andrea

    Tonight’s episode was really great. We got to see a sort of vulnerable side to Klaus that i never thought we’d see. and that twist at the end was great! i’m so glad that mrs. lockwood is getting a storyline as well. not a lot of adults get storylines in this show, besides Alaric or Jenna (RIP). Can’t wait for the next episode!!!

  • jeny

    Seriously, who cares about Stefan and Elena???? *yawns*

    • Andrea

      Um, I do.

    • vamploveXO

      we do <3

  • vamploveXO

    loved the 2nd episode, as i do all. i LOVE LOVE LOVE TVD. its my favorite show. i hope tyler is the one to save caroline. we all just love those two & i hope that despite any future obstacles they might have they stay & end up together.

    despite stefan being in a dark place in his life right now i love that he always tries to make sure that the ones he cares about are safe. stefan/elena shipper & caroline/tyler shipper right here

    and i must say that as a fan of both shows TVD & TB i love TVD lots more because it makes their audience go through so many emotions. It has a balance of everything a show like this should have, the vampire action, the sex, real life dramas, & the romance, but they are both great.
