Spoiler alert! After a traumatic season 5 finale of The Vampire Diaries, fans were left wondering if they’d seen the last of Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) — and who may have returned from The Other Side as a human. Exec producer Julie Plec provides EW with some answers, and teases where we go from here. READ FULL STORY
Tag: The Vampire Diaries (27-39 of 305)
After Thursday night’s Vampire Diaries finale, we knew Enzo was back from the dead, but will he be sticking around Mystic Falls? The short answer of it all is: Yes!
Julie Plec revealed that not only will Enzo be returning as his vampire bad-boy self, but Michael Malarkey will officially be a Vampire Diaries series regular in season 6. “We have not seen the last of the delicious Michael Malarkey,” Plec said. “He’s a wonderful addition to the team, and he will be officially a series regular next year.” READ FULL STORY
'The Originals': Joseph Morgan on Klaus' greatest threat; plus, a fatherhood edition of 'What Would Klaus Do?'
With every episode of The Originals, Klaus’ list of enemies seems to grow longer. And at this point, he’s got a number of people to worry about (as much as an all-powerful hybrid needs to worry.) There are the witches, who want to kill his unborn child, his father, who’s trying to come back from the dead to kill him, Marcel, who’s readying for battle, and whatever’s going on with that key the humans have … to name a few. But heading into the penultimate episode, Joseph Morgan is most worried about two specific members of the Originals universe.
On the one hand, there’s Mikael, who Morgan identified as “the most terrifying threat,” for Klaus. But in terms of Klaus’ potential for redemption, Morgan is more focused on Klaus’ unborn child. “The emotional investment that Klaus has finally made in his child and the potential for the child to save him, to redeem Klaus is huge, so the witches, Genevieve, particularly, being a threat to his child is pretty worrying as well,” Morgan said.
So basically, Klaus needs to keep his eye on the unborn and the potentially undead. “For Klaus’ person, for his physical form, if Mikael gets his way and is able to get a body and come back somehow, I think Mikael is the biggest threat, but for Klaus’ redemption, for his sanity, for everything that’s good in him, I think that Genevieve at the moment along with Monique is the biggest threat because they take his child and he’ll be going down a pretty dark path, I would imagine.”
And speaking of Klaus’ children, he and Marcel had a great moment last week, in which both affirmed their father-son relationship, and yet, also prepared for a bloody battle. So does Morgan think Klaus will let his feelings get in the way on the battlefield? “[That] is going to be answered on Tuesday,” he said with a chuckle. “He has before let his feelings get in the way at the last minute, [but] he’s also charged at his sister with the white oak stake and only because he was stopped by Elijah did it not happen. I think he tried to stab her a couple of times and was ready to kill her, was ready to end her and then was stopped. I think he’s capable of doing very rash things, which he will deeply regret later, but the potential is there. We’ve seen how much of a monster he can be. He does care for Marcel deeply, Marcel is his adopted son, he raised him and he sired him. There’s a huge love there between those characters, but in the moment, could Klaus do something terrible? Absolutely.”
While we’re talking family, what ever happened to that one member of Klaus’ wolf bloodline that we met? Well, Morgan doesn’t know, but Klaus’ wolf family is a story he’s dying to delve into next season. “That’s a huge untapped resource we have, and I would hope moving into season 2, that we’ll see more of his background, his wolf side. We saw one of his bloodline, and we found this ring that his mother made for his true biological father, so I think the idea of exploring that, certainly for me, is very interesting, because the Klaus we met was very much a vampire. We’ve seen more of the beast in him certainly over the last season, but definitely, we could explore more of that. Wouldn’t it be amazing if we discovered a pack that was descended from his bloodline, so there’s another family of which Klaus is a member, and then you have these two families, and he’s a member of both? I should be pitching this to Julie [Plec]. Season 2, I think we just figured it out!”
So now that we figured that out, we asked Morgan to play a game called What Would Klaus Do: The Fatherhood Edition. It’s pretty much exactly what you think it is. Read his answers below: READ FULL STORY
'The Vampire Diaries': Michael Malarkey on Enzo sticking around, the return of a few familiar faces, more death
The Vampire Diaries and death are sort of like two peas in a pod. But last week, viewers witnessed a death unlike any they’d seen before when Damon’s longtime pal, Enzo, decided to essentially frame Stefan for his suicide, if only to ruin the Salvatore brothers’ relationship. But with the other side crumbling, Enzo isn’t exactly gone from Mystic Falls.
For now, Enzo will be sticking around as a very pissed off ghostly presence, ready to enact his revenge on Stefan, Damon, and pretty much everyone. “I kind of view Enzo as a little bit of an anarchist,” Michael Malarkey said. “He doesn’t give a s— about all the stuff that a lot of the other characters care about, so he’s really quick to dismiss things or say, ‘That’s a bunch of crap’ or ‘All this girlfriend bulls— is pointless, let’s focus on real stuff here.’ So, I think there’s an element of him which is mad at the world and doesn’t care, but there’s also [a] very specific reason for him to be upset with, in particular Damon and Stefan.” 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.
