The Vampire Diaries took a big gamble when they decided to have Elena begin the transformation from human to vampire. And the show took an even bigger risk when it decided to have Stefan and Bonnie’s attempts to save her from her fate fall short — meaning there is no turning back now. How do we feel about Elena now joining the ranks of the bloodsuckers? And where do both the character and the show go from here? TVD expert Mandi Bierly joins me on this week’s edition of the InsideTV Podcast to break down the ramifications of the big new twist and what it means for everyone in Mystic Falls. Not only that, but we also take a long hard look at the new vampire hunter in town, Connor Jordan. Whatever you do, don’t shake his hand! Just click on the audio player below to listen in.
But that’s not all, oh lovers of all things supernatural. We also have a revealing chat with the new big bad on The Walking Dead. The Governor is coming, and the man who plays him, David Morrissey, stopped by our studio along with Walking Dead exec-producer Gale Anne Hurd to drop some intel on both the man and his seemingly idyllic town of Woodbury (which we will see for the first time in this Sunday’s episode). Gale also talks about the big change in Rick this season, while David responds to some trash talk from Andrew Lincoln, who dissed and dismissed his on-screen opponent to us a few months ago. The battle is joined!
