If you think you’re going to get Nina Dobrev to tell you who Elena chooses — Stefan (Paul Wesley) or Damon (Ian Somerhalder) — in tonight’s season finale of The Vampire Diaries, think again: She hasn’t even told her mother. “She lives between Canada and Europe, so I don’t get to see my mom very much. Her way to kind of be with me is watching the show and Googling me wherever I am,” Dobrev says, with a laugh. “So on many occasions, she calls and asks for spoilers and I’ll always say, ‘Nope! Nope! I’m not telling you anything.’ She always gets a little bit upset at the time, but then ultimately, she’s happy that I didn’t ruin it for her. It’s like the way I don’t want to know what happens in an episode before I read it. You don’t want to get to the punch line before you hear the joke.” READ FULL STORY »
Tag: The Vampire Diaries (79-91 of 242)
It may be difficult to believe, but Thursday’s Vampire Diaries season finale isn’t just about Elena (Nina Dobrev) making a decision, finally, between Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder). As EP Julie Plec says, “There’s definitely some murder and mayhem, and if all goes well, there will be some epic tears, too.” As a result of Alaric outing them to the Council in last week’s episode, Caroline (Candice Accola) and Tyler (Michael Trevino) will learn there’s a target on their backs and have to decide whether they stay and fight, or leave Mystic Falls. And Bonnie (Kat Graham), who was used by Esther to complete Alaric’s transformation into the ultimate killer and often finds herself doing magic to aid vampires (good or bad), is tired of being pushed around. “She is done taking orders from anybody else, and she’s making decisions based on what it is that she wants, what’s right for her and the people that she loves,” Plec says. Adds Graham, ”That’s definitely the overall tone of Bonnie in the season finale. She has got to make decisions for herself versus constantly bending over backwards for whoever might need her.” READ FULL STORY »

Excellent news for fans of those hot bloodsuckers on the CW: The network has picked up a fourth season of The Vampire Diaries.
The CW also gave a thumbs-up to an eighth season of Supernatural and a fifth year of 90210. The network has already picked up another installment of America’s Next Top Model.
No word yet on the future of some of CW’s other shows, like Gossip Girl, Ringer, or Nikita. The CW will present its fall lineup to advertisers later this month in New York.

'Vampire Diaries': EP Julie Plec on Elena ogling Damon, Caroline championing Stefan, and a twist on the Rebesther twist
Fans of The Vampire Diaries are still talking about last week’s epic Damon and Elena kiss and the motel ogling scene that started it off — which, regardless of whether they’re Team Delena or Team Stelena, they had to admit was hot. “I can’t speak for everybody else in this world, but when we were talking about what the scene needed to be in the writer’s room, we’ve all had those moments where you end up laying in bed in high school with a guy or a girl that you like, and you don’t know what’s gonna happen, you don’t know what it means, but all you know is that you’re infinitely aware of their proximity to you and every single move that they’re making and every single breath that’s being breathed between the two of you. We wanted that moment to be that experience,” exec producer Julie Plec tells EW. “When we talked to [director] Chris Grismer, we just said, ‘Milk every single beat out of this that you can. It’s so much about what’s not being said. It’s so much about them just lying next to each other, the beauty and intimacy and sexual chemistry of just being near each other is what needs to be telling the story here. So take as long as you want, and shoot it as much as you want, and we’ll put it together from there.’ They definitely gave us everything we needed.” READ FULL STORY »
Vampire Diaries fans are now less than a week away from the start of season 3′s final chapter. The show returns April 19, with four consecutive episodes culminating in the May 10 season finale. EP Julie Plec says producers have known from the start of the season, when they sat down to break this year’s mythology, that Elena and the Salvatore Brothers would eventually learn that if you kill an Original, you take out every vampire in his or her bloodline. “We were looking for that great final push, like a Klaus-is-a-hybrid shocker or the Sun and the Moon curse is fake,” Plec tells EW. “We really wanted to turn the tables on the audience and redirect the stakes — literal and figurative — back onto our heroes and have them realize we’ve been trying to kill Klaus for so long, now there’s a possibility that he can never die without us dying along with him.” To tide fans over until Thursday, we asked Plec, who’ll be a speaker on Monday’s NAB Show panel “Two Minds, One Vision” discussing the collaboration between showrunners and cinematographers, to tease the remainder of the season.

The Vampire Diaries returns with a new episode on April 19, but The CW is already looking ahead to May Sweeps (which okay, actually kicks off April 26). We’ve got an exclusive first look at an ad which asks the question, “Is this where the bloodline ends?” You’ll recall that the latest setback to Operation Kill Klaus is the recently discovered caveat that if you kill an Original, all the vampires in his or her bloodline die. That means before Stefan (Paul Wesley), Elena (Nina Dobrev), and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) can put a
missing stake in Klaus (Joseph Morgan), they have to determine if their bloodline (via Katherine and Rose) leads back to Klaus — or if they’d just be losing Tyler (Michael Trevino).*
Check out a larger version of the ad below and tell us what other questions it makes you ponder. I’ll start: Is Damon wearing a heavage-baring tank top or T-shirt underneath that jacket? Who else immediately thought of Alexander Skarsgard, who went through a serious heavage/necklace period? And why is Elena (or is it Katherine?) dressed in black tie when the boys are in weekend woods wear? READ FULL STORY »
'Gossip Girl,' 'Criminal Minds,' 'Grimm,' 'Vampire Diaries': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room
This has been such a busy week in TV Land that I’ve completely neglected my backlog of Draw Something games. In case you didn’t know how much I care, now you do. (And if you didn’t know how much I rarely interact with real people, you now also know that, too.)
So without further ado, here are the offerings this week: Gossip Girl finale teases, dish on one of Morgan’s best episodes yet on Criminal Minds, some goodies for Grimm fans, and much, much more.
If your question didn’t sneak in this week, please keep sending them along. (email@example.com) I’ll try to fit you in next week. Also, continue sending me your random theories and ponderings. They’re highly entertaining (even if I can’t include them all here). Until next time!
‘GOSSIP GIRL’: THREE OF YOUR BURNING QUESTIONS ANSWERED!
I LOVE Gossip Girl fans. Not only because they are a passionate bunch (I like your pluck!), but they are among the most active question askers here at Spoiler Room. So as a thanks: Here are three of your questions answered straight from executive producer Josh Safran.
Do you have any scoop for Chuck and Blair for Gossip Girl #spoileroom — @Smallville944
Yes. But the Chuck/Blair/Dan-centric portion of my convo with Safran was so good, I’ll share it with you in a separate story FIRST thing Monday. Cool? And no, this answer doesn’t count against the three fan questions. It’s more of an FYI. READ FULL STORY »
'Vampire Diaries': Joseph Morgan talks tonight's torture scene and the shot you weren't allowed to see
Doesn’t it feel like we haven’t seen Klaus (Joseph Morgan) in forever? Well, he’s back in tonight’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, which finds Klaus trying to find a way to break the spell his mother did to link he and his Original vampire siblings so that if one of them is murdered they all die.
“He’s trying to get Bonnie to help him break the spell, and as we know from watching Klaus, people will often end up as collateral damage in his wake,” Morgan says. “So he’ll try to use someone Bonnie cares about in order to manipulate her into doing his will.” Is he talking about Abby? Jamie? Jeremy? “There’s a few people, isn’t there?” Morgan laughs. “This little Vampire Diaries Scooby-Doo hero squad is a very tight-knit group. He has a choice.” Klaus’ brother Finn is back in the picture, so we assume Klaus will also be using Sage, who we know has a history with Finn, to manipulate him as well? “Certainly, if it seems to Klaus that Sage is gonna be valuable in that way, he’s gonna take advantage of every tool in his box,” Morgan says.

If you missed Caroline (Candice Accola) in last week’s return of The Vampire Diaries, you’ll be happy to know she’s back tonight. She’s been busy helping Bonnie’s mother, Abby, adjust to her new life as a vampire. “We’re gonna see Caroline step into the role of the mothering mentor. We’re gonna learn about what happens when a witch does transition into a vampire and what that means and what she loses,” she says. “We’re gonna get to know Jamie [the young man Abby took in while she was estranged from Bonnie] a little bit better. I can say he’s chopping wood in a very revealing tank top, ladies. So get ready, because those arms are chopping wood like no other.” (Another reason to tune in: EP Julie Plec will cohost our weekly live blog tonight at 8 p.m. ET.) READ FULL STORY »
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 »
