Paul Wesley stepped behind the camera to direct the April 17 episode of The Vampire Diaries, and while the hour will give viewers answers about new arrival Markos (Raffi Barsoumian) — “This guy is creating this alternate reality that is manifesting in Stefan and Elena’s mind, and that alternate reality is actually a set of clues leading to something,” he teases — there is one thing it won’t have: Stefan shirtless. The script originally called for it: “It was this beautiful scene where Stefan takes Elena, and he picks her up and kisses her, and they go on the kitchen counter and things get kinda hot and heavy. But rather than sexualizing it, I decided to make it romantic,” he says in an interview airing Thursday on Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM 105). “I pitched it to the writers – I was like ‘Guys, I think this should be romantic and not sexual,’ and they fell for it. Suckers!” READ FULL STORY

'The Vampire Diaries': Candice Accola on Steroline's 'raw' moment, Markos' arrival, and her road trip with Enzo
In last week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, we were introduced to the secret hangout of the Travelers, where we discovered that there was yet another Stefan doppelganger lurking somewhere as an EMT. And with Caroline and Enzo off to hunt him down, could there be a love connection there? And what about this mysterious leader of the Travelers named Markos? What could his arrival mean for the residents of Mystic Falls?
We caught up with Candice Accola to get some information about just how bad Markos is, and what she thinks about Steroline, Klaroline, and more:
The promo for the March 27 episode of The Vampire Diaries hinted that while Damon and Elena may have admitted their relationship is toxic, they’re not exactly ready to stop having sex. Our sneak peek, which finds them back at Mystic Falls High awaiting some kind of parent-teacher conference for Jeremy, reveals they need to focus some of their attention back on Jeremy – and his new witch friend Liv. (Oh, and also that Damon has seen Ghost.) Watch it below.
Elena Gilbert is going to get her body back from Katherine sooner rather than later, and when she does, there is going to be some major life cleanup needed.
How much? Executive producer Caroline Dries goes into more detail in this Q&A with EW, in which she teases Thursday night’s episode and all the Mystic Falls drama to come. READ FULL STORY
'The Vampire Diaries' bosses reveal the seven biggest debates from the writers' room, and the two smallest
Five seasons in and 100 episodes later, the writers behind all things related to Mystic Falls, the Salvatore brothers, and of course, doppelgängers have given us countless twists, turns, and heartbreaking memorable moments. But what were the stories that turned out differently than they expected? And if that’s the case, what had been their original plan? Was Elena originally going to remain a vampire? Actually, no. Was Jeremy always going to come back from the dead? Again, not so much. We caught up with executive producers Julie Plec and Caroline Dries to get a look back at seven of the biggest debates from the writers room over the past 100 episodes, as well as a glimpse into two storylines they never questioned and the real reason why the Originals are immortal (Hint: It wears a suit.).
Check out the biggest debates below:
We’ve got less than 24 hours before The Vampire Diaries returns with its 100th episode, which means it’s the perfect time for a little scoop, right?
EW has confirmed that Tyler will return for the landmark episode. Last we saw of him, Tyler broke Caroline’s heart before heading down to New Orleans to try and get revenge on Klaus. Specifically, the last time we saw him on The Originals, a few of Marcel’s henchmen were marching him off to find a place in Marcel’s “garden,” a.k.a. where distrustful vampires go to rot. But apparently, the resourceful hybrid has escaped!
What this means for Caroline and Tyler, we have no idea. But considering Matt is now the rightful owner of Casa Lockwood, let’s hope Tyler will have a place to stay when he stops through town.
In The Vampire Diaries‘ season 4 finale, Elena Gilbert finally came face-to-face with Katherine, a.k.a. her doppelganger, a.k.a. the woman she’s been waiting to throw down with since, like, forever. And thanks to the fact that Katherine killed Elena’s brother in the middle of season 4, Elena’s desire to get rid of Katherine was at an all-time high. Needless to say, by finale time, Elena wanted revenge.
However, it was the older vamp who started the fight, claiming that Elena was to blame for stealing her happiness. From there, things only escalated, even to the point where Katherine literally had Elena’s heart in her hand. Luckily, Elena had the cure for vampirism in her pocket and was able to shove it down Katherine’s throat before her heart was removed from her chest. The score might have ended Elena: 1, Katherine: 0, but the real winner was actress Nina Dobrev, who had somehow perfected the art of fighting herself.
So how did Dobrev do it? We spoke with stunt coordinator John Copeman and Dobrev separately to find out.
Now that Stefan has his memories back on The Vampire Diaries, he’ll struggle, understandably, with those of the months he spent drowning in a submerged safe. Watch an exclusive clip from the Nov. 21 episode below.

'The Originals': Michael Trevino previews a Caroline-related 'drag-out fight,' Tyler getting revenge on more than just Klaus
Oh, Tyler. After years of leaving, returning, and leaving again on The Vampire Diaries, Klaus’ first successful hybrid is back in the revenge state of mind, and tonight marks his first venture into New Orleans territory on The Originals. Wanting to kill Klaus is old news in Tyler’s world. He spent half of last season un-siring hybrids in order to rally against the Original. But when that failed, and Klaus decided to take revenge by murdering Tyler’s mother, the one-time jock hit the road. But it turns out, he wasn’t just off blowing steam.
After spending his time in the Appalachian mountains gathering valuable information on Hayley, Tyler is ready to come back and take on both the people who screwed him over last winter. We caught up with Michael Trevino to talk about Tyler’s plan, a physical fight with Klaus, and what this could all mean for Hayley and her unborn child:
Fans of The Vampire Diaries may be mourning the official break-up of Tyler (Michael Trevino) and Caroline (Candice Accola) in the Oct. 31 episode. Trevino confirms to EW what most viewers have guessed: Tyler will be the first TVD character to visit the show’s New Orleans-set spinoff, The Originals. While The CW won’t confirm when – “sometime soon,” Trevino says coyly — or for how long, we do have an idea of why: As Tyler told Caroline, he can’t be at college when all he can focus on is his desire to make Klaus (Joseph Morgan) pay for killing his mother. Caroline begged him to love her more than he hates Klaus, but Tyler said he couldn’t and walked out. “It was actually really tough on both of us,” Trevino tells EW of shooting the teary-eyed goodbye. “In these scenes where Caroline and Tyler are going their separate ways, it’s usually that one of us is emotional and one isn’t. On this one, both of us were emotional. There were a few more takes than how it regularly goes between Candice and I.” READ FULL STORY
