Sad news: Damon didn’t get so drunk at Alaric’s grave in last week’s Vampire Diaries episode that he forgot his monologue about how he should be long gone by now because the Salvatores had agreed that whichever brother Elena didn’t choose would skip town. In the clip from Thursday’s episode below, we see that Damon intends to leave — as soon as he eats the new vampire hunter, Connor Jordan. Luckily, we know that won’t be easy to do. READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural,' 'Scandal,' 'The Vampire Diaries,' 'CSI: NY': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room
Hi, y’all! Happy almost-Halloween.
In between gathering scoops, I’m in the process of deciding what I’ll be wearing for the big night. So far, I’ve narrowed my options down to: an Observer, the Human Being, or bored single person. I know where I’m leaning but feel free to weigh in if you have a chance.
Meanwhile, make sure you’re emailing all your spoiler question to email@example.com or sending them via Twitter (@EWSandraG). Also, I’m taking other random TV questions via Vyou. I know, that’s a lot of me. Let’s move on:
‘SUPERNATURAL’: ‘THINGS QUICKLY FALL APART’
If you, like me, are still haunted by the image of Castiel calling out to Dean in Purgatory, sit back. I have some interesting intel for you.
While talking to Misha Collins about his charitable scavenger hunt (more about that here), he also confirmed a hunch we’d had about the last time Dean saw Cas. It was, in fact, while Dean was exiting Purgatory. But there’s much more to it than that. “That very moment is a pivotal moment. I think Dean is confused about what happened at that moment and won’t actually find out what happened then until episode 7,” he reveals. “It’s going to take a while to see that moment play out.” Suffice to say the truth hurts — especially on this show.
But when Cas does return topside, look for him to be “reinvigorated with a sense of purpose,” says Collins. “He essentially feels like he has to do good in order to right the wrongs of his past. So he starts to collaborate with Sam and Dean for that reason — so that he can continue to try to make things right. He’s no longer paying penance, really, because it’s no longer an act of suffering for him. But he’s doing his best to right the wrongs of his past.” Doing so won’t be as easy as he hopes, however. “He’s doing that in ways that help Sam and Dean and then, ultimately, it might also make life — as per usual with the Supernatural universe — complicated for Sam and Dean. At first, it seems like everything is hunky dory. But things quickly fall apart.”
On tonight’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, both Stefan and Damon try to help Elena adjust to life as a vampire. (Of course, they have very different methods).
When we caught up with Nina Dobrev on the set of the series recently, she told us that though Elena chose Stefan in the season three finale, her recent transition will affect how she feels about both brothers.
“She’s confused and changing and having different cravings and having different urges,” says Dobrev. “I feel like she’s kind of gone back to being stuck in the middle between the two boys.”
Watch the video below to get Dobrev’s take on the triangle:
So, what can you expect from the season 4 premiere of The Vampire Diaries tonight? “One giant emotional roller coaster ride,” says star Candice Accola. “Everyone’s just at their breaking point, on edge. Caroline especially.”
She’s not the only one. While Caroline tries to avoid the council, Elena attempts to deal with her transition and the arrival of a new vampire hunter. “It couldn’t be worst timing for there to be a vampire hunter in town,” says Dobrev. No kidding.
Watch the video below to see if you can pick up more hints about tonight’s episode, as well as figure out why co-star Michael Trevino describes the town council as a “cult.” READ FULL STORY
Damon and Elena may not be in a relationship when The Vampire Diaries returns on Oct. 11, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be sharing any intimate moments this season.
“There is some stuff that is going to come up this season that I think fans will get a little bit of joy out of,” said Ian Somerhalder, who explained that the love triangle still has a ways to go. “There is a scene [where] Damon pushes [Elena's] buttons a little bit and kind of starts undressing in front of her [and] that throws her for a loop. It was pretty cute.”
Though Somerhalder wouldn’t reveal what happens after Damon finishes undressing, he would say that the scene was so cute that even the crew guys were caught off guard. (Ok, now we’re really curious to see this).
As for how Damon’s going to handle Elena becoming a vampire, Somerhalder says that ultimately, it won’t affect the way he feels about her. “It doesn’t really matter whether she’s a vampire or human being,” he says. “He loves her either way.” Let the swooning commence.
Watch the video below to see what Somerhalder has to say about Elena’s transition and the evolution of the Damon-Elena-Stefan love triangle. READ FULL STORY
'Homeland,' 'Supernatural,' 'Vampire Diaries,' 'The Walking Dead,' 'Covert Affairs': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room
I’m simply floored by the amount of great TV on right now. Maybe I’m addicted. Maybe I need a life. And maybe I don’t care. It’s too much fun.
Also a blast? Answering your questions. So keep ‘em coming: firstname.lastname@example.org and via Twitter @EWSandraG.
‘HOMELAND’: WHAT NOW?!
If you haven’t watched last night’s episode, I recommend you skip over this little section.
I know, it’s rare that I give a spoiler warning within a spoiler column, but I would never want to ruin something as big as what happened at the end of last night’s Homeland. Just when I thought I had an idea of where the season was headed, my theory blew up in my face just two episodes in! READ FULL STORY
Elena may not be thrilled to wake up in transition when The Vampire Diaries returns on Oct. 11, but there’s at least one undead activity for her to look forward to: vampire sex.
“All the rage is this vampire sex,” said Nina Dobrev, when we caught up with her on the set a few weeks ago. “Unfortunately, I can’t tell you who Elena’s going to have it with but she definitely will have some and it’s definitely going to be hot and heavy and sexy and fun.”
Though Dobrev wouldn’t name the lucky guy, co-star Ian Somerhalder confirmed that his character wasn’t a contender.
“It’s not going to be Damon,” he said. “It’s all about Stefan.” Or so he thinks. (When we cross-checked with Dobrev, she seemed totally surprised that Somerhalder suggested Elena does the deed with the younger Salvatore).
Having seen the first two episodes, we’ll say only this: There’s one particular scene that we’re sure will have the entire fandom debating what really qualifies as “vampire sex.” Ponder that. (Then press play after the jump to watch Somerhalder and Dobrev tackle the topic). READ FULL STORY
A week from today, The Vampire Diaries returns with its season 4 premiere. Need something to tide you over? Check out the new cast photo below. Click on the image to expand it and see everyone. Spoiler: Nina Dobrev and Kat Graham aren’t the only ladies showing some leg. And the men of Mystic Falls should have their own line of jackets. READ FULL STORY
Take it from me: The Vampire Diaries is easily one of the most difficult shows to conduct interviews about because of the serialized nature of the story. Teasing — it’s an art. But I have to say, Daniel Gillies really held his own when he sat down on the Spoiler Room couch for a chat while in town recently promoting the Oct. 11 return of The Vampire Diaries and his film Broken Kingdom, out today.
Thanks to everyone who submitted questions for the actor. The fruits of your labors have produced the following scoop on Elijah’s return, the next flashback episode, and much more. Click below to check it out — and to hear Gillies say the phrase “take our pants off.”
We are less than a month away from the Oct. 11 season 4 premiere of The Vampire Diaries, and The CW has released a clip of the moment Elena learns she’s in transition to becoming a vampire. Watch it below. READ FULL STORY
We’re only one week into season/series premieres and I want to share some embarrassing figures:
4: Number of times I cried during Parenthood‘s premiere.
3: Number of dinners eaten straight out of a container/box because I was too lazy/tired to cook.
1: Times I teared up during Glee (Lea Michele’s phone call KILLED me.)
4: Times I shouted at the TV during Sons of Anarchy‘s premiere.
~22: Number of times I laughed out loud during the New Normal. (I’m guessing it was once per minute)
My point? The fall TV season is already starting off AMAZING, and it’s only going to go up from here. Can’t wait? Not to worry; I have some nice scoop to hold you over until then. Enjoy!
(And don’t forget to keep in touch! E -mail questions to email@example.com or on Twitter @EWSandraG. Also, if you’re so inclined, share some numbers of your own below. Purely for my entertainment, of course.)
‘GLEE': FIVE MINI-SCOOPS
From what I can tell, Glee fans seem a little split on the new season. (Also, the Grand Canyon is a kinda big and cookies are sorta delicious.) So, in an effort to please as many people as possible, I’ve included a little scoop for everyone below. For more, check out this Glee post from earlier this week. Enjoy (and play nice, please)!
+ WHERE’S MS. PILLSBURY!? Around. And we’ll see her quite soon, Matthew Morrison promises. In fact, he says, we’ll be seeing a lot more of Will and Emma’s home life than you might think based on the first episode. “We have never seen them actually living together, and now they’re living together this season, cohabitating under one roof,” he says. “It should be interesting. It’s not as easy as I think he thought it was going to be!”
+ SKIN ALERT: Chord Overstreet claims he has a shirtless scene in episode 3. You’re welcome.
+ MORE BIEBER ON THE WAY? It’s no secret that I fell deeply in love with Overstreet’s version of “Baby.” And he says there’s a good chance there’s more Bieber in the works! “I’m a big fan of ‘As Long As You Love Me’ right now. [I] may be doing a couple of mash-ups of some different stuff — and maybe some acoustic stuff,” he says.
+ WHEN THE TWO PUCKERMANS MEET…expect fireworks. “It’s definitely kind of shocking for them both initially,” says Jacob Artist, who says we’ll soon see Puck come face-to-face with his half-brother. “Puck has never met [my character], and I’ve never met Puck. Obviously, the confrontation — there’s a lot of tension going on…it’s definitely a touchy moment for the both of them. [The outcome] definitely affects them.”
+ LOVE TRIANGLE NO. 100000000 Glee loves love triangles. I love a good one, too. And it sounds like Puck Jr. could be involved in one of the many we’ll see this season. “Jake is definitely going to have some romantic drama going on. He’s interested in the new ladies,” Artist says. “I think [he's looking] for somebody that can balance him out. He can be a little crass — so I think [he wants] somebody that can balance him [out].” Any guesses, gang?
‘90210’: 100th EPISODE SCOOP!
90210 will hit a big milestone this year — 100 episodes! That’s no small feat in TV land, and what better way to mark the occasion than with Homecoming Weekend! Showrunners Patti Carr and Lara Olsen recently gushed to me about this super-packed episode when we hopped on the phone ahead of the show’s upcoming premiere on Oct. 8.
“We get to go back and re-live a few memories.” Carr said. “And we also have things getting bigger and more out of hand. We got to the Playboy mansion, we have musical performers, and some very revealing moments for our cast.” Also expect some “fan favorites” to pop up.
But, adds Carr: “It’s not just the clip show where they all remember and come out of it unaffected. They’re all profoundly affected by what happens.”
Another treat? Denise Richards, who, as EW previously reported, will appear as an alum-turned-socialite. “There’s so much happening in the 100th episode, I don’t know how we’re going to fit it all in one episode,” says Olsen. Carr jokes: “Maybe it will be a two-part 100th episode — 99.5/100.”
‘GREY’S ANATOMY': QUICK HITS FROM KEVIN MCKIDD
True story: I adore Kevin McKidd. Not only is he a hard-working guy — currently, he’s editing the fourth episode of the season, which he directed — but he’s a massively good teaser. And while I’m going to wait to share our full convo with you, here are some really tasty bits from our chat. (And, yes, this is a totally mean way for me to do this. But, you have to admit, it’s also a little fun — for me):
SG: Is the cheating issue from last season still hanging over Owen and Cristina this season?
KM: I think we’ve kind of blown past that in a way because the cataclysmic events of what happened, especially everything with Cristina. It’s going to come back and affect Owen as well — even though he wasn’t on the plane. In retrospect, it’s going to come back and really affect him in a big way too and in a way that we don’t expect.
SG: We know that not all of the doctors are going to be working at Seattle Grace in the first episode (which is a flashforward). Obviously you can’t say who, but is it safe to assume that Owen and Christina are still in the same place working on these issues together?
KM: That is not safe to assume…[truncated]
SG: Let’s talk about the flashbacks.
KM: I can’t really say too much because that would be giving stuff away. Flashbacks are featured heavily in episode two and may appear in other ones.
SG: Did any of the characters reactions to the crash surprise you?
KM:…the writers have kind of turned everything on its head and under duress and under stress people do act in a way out of character…
Look for my full chat with McKidd, where he talks about directing and the new season, on Sept. 27, the day of the big season premiere!
