Stars from 'Vampire Diaries,' 'Castle,' and 'Revenge' talk what's next in Spoiler Room: Video Edition
While on the set of The Vampire Diaries about six weeks ago, I took note of a familiar face walking around set: Robert Ri’chard, who plays Jaime.
Now, at the time, we’d only recently been introduced to the boy, who is the adoptive son of Bonnie’s (Kat Graham) mom, Abby (Persia White). But seeing him lurk around set was a pretty good indication he’d be back. And he is!
This Thursday, in fact, and from what Kat Graham indicates, it’s to connect on a new, romantic level. (They’re not blood, so we’re OK with that, right?) But that’s just one of the things in store for the Bennett family. Candice Accola was also nice enough to share some details on that in the latest Spoiler Room: Video Edition, which you can check out below.
Also in store? Some scoop from Tamala Jones on the upcoming Castle episode, “The Limey.” (Hint: Lainey’s as ready as we are for some Caskett!) and Gabriel Mann teases a big twist with Nolan on Revenge that we won’t see coming. (Could it be revealed in the much-hyped flashback episode? Could be, could be.)
Anyway, enjoy, folks. See you back here on Friday for your regular column. In the meantime, send me an e-mail if you have a scoop request — or if you want to play Draw Something with me! (I wish I was kidding… but, tragically, I’m just that sad.) READ FULL STORY
'Pretty Little Liars,' 'The Vampire Diaries,' 'Secret Circle,' 'Revenge': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room
It’s that time of the week again, so I hope you enjoy some of the juicy tidbits in this week’s installment. And with finales just around the corner, I imagine it’s all just going to get juicier as the weeks tick by.
But on that note, if there’s something I’m missing, don’t hesitate to put in a scoop request! (email@example.com) And a million thank yous to those who already write in! Wait, let’s make that a thousand. We’re in a recession after all. I have to be prudent.
‘PRETTY LITTLE LIARS’: THREE BURNING QUESTIONS ANSWERED!
What’s better than an in-office visit from a Pretty Little Liar? If I may douchily answer myself: A visit from TWO Pretty Little Liars. And that’s exactly what happened to me yesterday when Lucy Hale and Troian Bellisario stopped in to film a quick video (which I’ll share with you Monday!), make me laugh (you’ll see…), and answer some of your burning questions! Check ‘em out: READ FULL STORY
At The Vampire Diaries‘ PaleyFest panel in Los Angeles last week, fans were treated to an early look at the just-aired episode of the heart-pounding series, and, as a result, were made aware of the shocking reveal that came at the end of the fantastic hour. [Don't read on if you haven't seen the episode! Seriously!]
The crowd was understandably floored to find out that Alaric (Matt Davis) is the person responsible for the string of murders in Mystic Falls, and equally stunned when it was revealed his killing streak is a result of his magic ring. (The ring begins to have bad consequences after being used to resurrect a person several times.) And boss Julie Plec told the crowd during an un-streamed portion of the panel, the bombshell is just the tip of the twist iceberg! READ FULL STORY
The Vampire Diaries returns tonight with a flashback episode to 1912, when boxing vampire Sage (Smallville‘s Cassidy Freeman, starting a multi-episode arc) teaches Damon (Ian Somerhalder) how to choose victims for maximum enjoyment — a lesson that also leads to the creation of Stefan the Ripper (Paul Wesley).
Was it a platonic mentorship back then? “I wonder if Damon is platonically involved with anyone. That’s my question,” Freeman laughs. “I wouldn’t say that they have a burning love for one another, but there’s definitely sexual tension.” READ FULL STORY
The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle return this Thursday, and The CW is celebrating with an extended promo that reminds us that vampires and witches are vicious and sexy… also that we love Damon’s shower, that Elena cries a lot, that it can be funny when someone’s head falls off, and that there is apparently a Victoria’s Secret in Chance Harbor.
I’m most intrigued by this shot of Damon in bed with Rebekeh (again) and Sage (guest star Cassidy Freeman, who debuts in Thursday’s flashback episode “1912″ before hitting present-day Mystic Falls on March 22) caressing Rebekah’s face. Is Sage turned on or jealous? Watch the extended promo below. READ FULL STORY
After a month-long hiatus, The Vampire Diaries returns Thursday with a new episode, “1912.” Click through for a few behind-the-shots to tide you over. READ FULL STORY
'The Vampire Diaries' cast teases Alaric twist, Originals' 'appetite for destruction,' and more love triangle action -- EW VIDEO
Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec implored the crowd at PaleyFest on Saturday night to honor the “circle of trust” after they were treated to an advance screening of the March 15 episode, “1912.” So while we’re inclined to honor the request, the cast was nice enough to give a few teases while on the red carpet for the event.
Matt Davis was among the most excited to talk about what’s next, especially considering the way his character’s fate was left hanging in the balance at the end of the last new episode. As you might recall, Alaric (Davis) was near death after being shot by Meredith (Torrey DeVitto). As you might have gathered from Davis’ presence at the panel, we find out it was, in fact, not his time to join the many who have perished in Mystic Falls. But Davis warned EW on the red carpet that Alaric’s troubles are far from over. “What we’re going to learn is when you wear the ring and you die, and you die, and you die, and you die again, there’s a consequence to that,” he said. “What we’re about to show is what those consequences are for Alaric.” (More from our chat in the video below!)

'The Vampire Diaries' star Daniel Gillies talks last night's episode, and what's next for Elijah and Elena
Fans were rendered speechless in the final moment’s of last week’s installment of The Vampire Diaries, when Original Mama Esther cast a spell that bound all of her children together, with the ultimate intention of killing them. To be fair, her drastic actions were not completely unwarranted — her children are a scheming, murdering group of ancient vampires who treat human beings like their silly little playthings. The lone, sensitive standout, and the only offspring to give Esther a bit of pause, was Elijah (Daniel Gillies).
Unfortunately for Elijah, last night was a full moon — the celestial event Mama Esther needed to cast her wicked spell. EW caught up with Gillies after last night’s do-or-die episode, “All My Children,” to discuss last night’s action and speculate on what’s next. SPOILERS AHEAD! READ FULL STORY
Shipper Nation: A Valentine's Day treat for 'Fringe' lovers and a salute to TV's most romantic, creative (and arguably strangest) fans
Last Friday, Fringe fans were treated to an instant-classic installment of the Fox sci-fi series, one that significantly advanced the season’s defining storyline: Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson) — marooned in a new rendering of history in which he has not existed since he was a child – trying to return home to his own timeline. Yet for one particular, peculiar subset of loyal Fringe viewers, “Welcome to Westfield” was nothing short of an early Valentine’s Day gift. They’re the fans for whom the dream sequence spectacle of Peter and Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) making love was a dream come true. They’re the fans that got goosebumps when Olivia planted a kiss on Peter, as if this “reboot” version of his ladylove had suddenly reverted back to the original iteration of her. They’re fans known as ‘shippers, and if you’re a Web-chatty TV watcher or pop culture aficionado who tends to fixate on romantic relationships in your favorite fiction or fantasize about the mere possibility of amorous activity between your favorite make-believe people, then you’re probably one of them.
In the current issue of Entertainment Weekly, we explore how the shipper phenomenon — which began with The X-Files and until recently has been more associated with sci-fi and fantasy fandom — has gone mainstream and how shippers themselves can impact the creative process. An added bonus for Fringe fans: Exec producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman tell EW that an episode scheduled to air next month, entitled “A Short Story About Love,” will be a shipper milestone.

If there’s anyone who knows how to pull off a successful love triangle, it’s Kevin Williamson. As the creator of The CW’s highest-rated series, The Vampire Diaries, he’s managed to keep fans constantly questioning whether the show’s central character, Elena (Nina Dobrev), will end up with emotionally tormented vampire, Stefan (Paul Wesley), or his undead bad-boy brother, Damon (Ian Somerhalder).
It’s a position he’s been in before. Williamson also developed the sharp late ’90s teen drama, Dawson’s Creek — another show with a much buzzed-about romantic dynamic. Though Williamson didn’t helm the love triangle on Dawson’s, when the series wrapped up after six seasons, as the creator, it was up to him to decide whether Joey (Katie Holmes) would end up with soul mate Dawson (James Van Der Beek) or teen love Pacey (Joshua Jackson). In the end, she chose Pacey — a decision that shippers continue to grapple with today. READ FULL STORY
Happy Friday, roomies.
It’s that time of the week again, and by that, I mean it’s time for you to feast your eyes on the last important task I do before spending 48 hours eating various cereals on my couch. (I’m so glamorous.)
Hope everyone finds a little something in here they like but if you don’t, make sure you’re sending me your questions. Address is same as always: firstname.lastname@example.org. I also except them on Twitter. (Click the button below to join the party.) See you next week!
‘NCIS’: A LOOK AHEAD WITH EP GARY GLASBERG
There’s been a lot of self-reflection happening on NCIS as of late. (In fact, the show’s entire 200th episode was dedicated to a storyline that found Gibbs on a personal journey unlike any we’d ever seen.) And as you may have guessed, this is all no coincidence. In fact, EP Gary Glasberg tells me that all the threads we’ve seen thus far will weave together for this year’s season finale. Vague enough for you? Maybe he can help elaborate: “There’s definitely a theme to this season about decisions and [about] the roads that people have taken and choices in their lives,” he says. “I hope that has come through; it certainly did in the 200th, But I think that’s been the case — whether we’re talking about realizations, like Abby and her brother or a lot of the things that have come up with Tony and Ziva as well.” READ FULL STORY
'The Vampire Diaries': Talk tonight's shocking twist, and find out what's next from producer Julie Plec
When Original vampire mama Esther (Alice Evans) returned to Mystic Falls after spending the last millennium six feet under, we knew she’d have some deeply hidden tricks up her sleeve. But could anyone have possibly seen tonight’s twist coming?
We learned tonight that Esther is not one for subtlety, as she marked her arrival with the grandest ball our Mystic Falls gang has ever seen. This elegant affair was the perfect setting for the sex, violence, and deceit that occurred before the night was through. EW screened the episode with exec producer Julie Plec in Los Angeles yesterday, who gave reporters the scoop on what’s next. Talk about the episode below, and read ahead for some MAJOR SPOILERS!
