'Vampire Diaries': Candice Accola talks Klaus, Miss Mystic Falls, and a Winter Wonderland

The promo for this week’s Vampire Diaries doesn’t show what fan favorite Caroline (Candice Accola) will be up to now that she knows boyfriend Tyler (Michael) and his friend Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) plan to help hybrids break their sire bond to Klaus (Joseph Morgan). Here, she teases what’s next.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Where does Caroline go from here?

CANDICE ACCOLA: I feel like this season, Caroline’s just trying to be a moral center for not only herself but also the people around her. For Elena, through her transition. For Tyler, just making sure nothing comes between them. She’s now very secure in who she is as a vampire, who she is as a young woman, and what she feels is the right thing to do in any situation. So we’re gonna see her in quite the pickle, to keep it in simple terms — if she needs to do the right thing for the right thing’s sake, or if she needs to make sacrifices for those around her.

One theory fans have is that she’ll spend more time with Klaus to distract him from what Tyler and Hayley are plotting. 

Caroline has definitely, in the past, used Klaus’ feelings toward her to distract him so that they can execute their plan and try to get ahead and beat Klaus at his own game. So we’ve seen this before, and we will definitely see it again. Caroline knows the kind of hold that she has over Klaus. I don’t think that she necessarily trusts fully that he will never just switch on a dime — I don’t think anyone can. I think that’s what so enticing for viewers to watch a character like Klaus. The second that you think he’s being the nice guy, then he’s the bad guy. The second you think he’s just a bad guy, he’s a nice guy. He isn’t a one-note bad guy. He does have a genuine side, and I think that through Caroline, we’re getting that perspective.  READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead,' 'Hawaii Five-0,' 'Hart of Dixie,' 'Grimm': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Even though New York is freezing, things are heating up in TV Land.

Okay, to be honest, it’s not that cold today; I just needed something to open the column with. Give me a break, you know how hard it is to come up with random openers every week? Does anyone actually read these two first paragraphs? Bueller? Bueller? Forget it. But don’t forget to send questions: spoilerroom@ew.com

‘THE WALKING DEAD’: MORE MAJOR CASUALTIES TO COME?
The collision with Woodbury is coming and Lauren Cohan couldn’t be more excited for fans of The Walking Dead to see it for themselves. “Maggie plays a big part in that,” she teases of the clash. “It’s going to be crazy!”

Crazy — and deadly, as one might expect. “The body count is not done,” she says. “That’s pretty much all I can say, but we’re not just going to see death. There’s going to be a whole host of challenges now that we’ve got the human threat. Woodbury is up to no good. The Governor is up to no good; it’s really scary. We’ve got some scary stuff ahead.”

And with the gang and Rick still reeling from at least two major losses (Carol = RIP?), exactly who will step up as the leader when the two camps finally meet is not entirely clear. The only guarantee? They’re going to have a formidable foe in the Gov. “It’s interesting to see within the prison [group that] people step up and lead even if they don’t want to. In Woodbury, the Governor steps up and takes control because that’s something he couldn’t have gotten away with in the real world. And that has absolutely no limits.”

In case you missed it, check out our longer chat with Cohan here.

'Vampire Diaries': Three reasons to already love the upcoming Miss Mystic Falls episode -- PHOTOS

We do a love a good Mystic Falls town event, and it’s soon time for one of our favorites, the Miss Mystic Falls pageant. Photos released from the Nov. 29 episode of The Vampire Diaries, “My Brother’s Keeper,” offer a few teases.

1. Elena and Damon may be reminded of that time he subbed for Stefan in the try-not-to-fall-walking-down-the-stairs-then-dance portion of the Miss Mystic Falls competition in season 1.

'Vampire Diaries' hunter Todd Williams teases this week's 'Killer' episode

On Thursday’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, titled “The Killer,” Connor (Todd Williams) takes Jeremy, Matt, and April hostage at the Grill, and the Salvatore Brothers disagree on the best plan to save them. It’s an episode that provides a lot of answers about the vampire hunter, Williams says.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Connor is a character who, at the moment, is very easy to dislike. Is there something in his backstory that would surprise us?
TODD WILLIAMS:  That’s what this episode is about, basically shedding some light as to why Connor’s doing what he’s doing. It’s not as black and white as, Oh, vampires. I want to kill ‘em. That’s it. There’s definitely a story there, and this episode makes him a little more three-dimensional, just in terms of his humanity. You find out more about his relationship with Professor Shane and exactly what they’re trying to get from one another, why they have this alliance.  READ FULL STORY

'Vampire Diaries': Elena and Damon talk dirty dancing and shame spirals -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

On Thursday’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, titled “The Killer,” Connor takes Jeremy, Matt, and April hostage at the Grill so he can try to destroy every vampire that attempts to rescue them. But before that, there’s time for Elena and Damon to banter about her behavior at last week’s Murder House Party. Watch our exclusive clip below. READ FULL STORY

'Vampire Diaries' scoop: Will Caroline choose between Tyler and Klaus? -- VIDEO

Last season, Elena had to decide between the two men in her life. Now, it seems, it’s Caroline’s turn.

“She’s going to have to choose,” said Michael Trevino, who plays Tyler, when we caught up with him on the Atlanta set recently. “At the end of the day I know she wants to be with Tyler, but there is something intriguing about being with Klaus and how powerful he is.”

While Trevino thinks there’s something brewing between Caroline and Klaus, co-star Candice Accola isn’t quite as convinced. “I still think it’s hilarious fans want Caroline and Klaus together,” she said. “They’re so different.” (Hey, opposites attract right?)

Joseph Morgan, on the other hand, is more optimistic about the pairing. And he has good reason to be. If last week’s episode was any indication, it looks like Caroline and Tyler’s relationship will be tested by the arrival of his friend (and possible old flame), Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin).

“Caroline is a little concerned with Hayley being in town,” said Tonkin, who described her character as a free spirit. “But she wants to trust Tyler.”

A jealous Caroline? Count us in. Watch the video below to see what else Trevino and Accola have to say about the love triangle: READ FULL STORY

InsideTV Podcast: David Morrissey and Gale Anne Hurd tell you what to expect in Woodbury on tonight's 'Walking Dead'

Image credit: Gene Page/AMC

The first two episodes of The Walking Dead’s third season saw Rick Grimes and Co. infiltrate and make a prison their new home/fortress. But tonight’s episode will take a drastic turn as we are finally introduced to the big bad of season 3, The Governor. Not only will we finally meet the Governor, but we will get an up close and personal tour of the town he calls home: Woodbury, GA.

But you don’t have to wait until tonight to hear from the Governor, because the man who plays him, David Morrissey, is ready to talk to you right here and right now! Morrissey and exec-producer Gale Anne Hurd stopped by EW’s InsideTV Podcast studio to drop some intel on the character fans will soon love to hate. What makes the Governor tick? And how is he similar and different to the comic book version of the character? Not only that, but David will respond to Andrew Lincoln starting a war of words between the characters a few months back. Also, Gale will offer some insight into the Rick 2.0 we witnessed chopping off legs and killing inmates the past two weeks. It’s a must-listen for any Walking Dead fan. (The Walking Dead interview starts at 15:00.)

But before the zombies attack, we need to discuss a slightly sexier supernatural being: the vampire. Mandi Bierly joins me to talk all things Vampire Diaries, including Elena’s recent transformation and the arrival of mysterious vampire hunter Connor Jordan. We break down what’s happened so far, and Mandi offers teases as to what’s coming up next. It’s a conversation you’ll want to sink your teeth into. (Sorry, couldn’t resist.) READ FULL STORY

InsideTV Podcast: Are you digging Elena on 'The Vampire Diaries' as a bloodsucker?

Image Credit: The CW

The Vampire Diaries took a big gamble when they decided to have Elena begin the transformation from human to vampire. And the show took an even bigger risk when it decided to have Stefan and Bonnie’s attempts to save her from her fate fall short — meaning there is no turning back now. How do we feel about Elena now joining the ranks of the bloodsuckers? And where do both the character and the show go from here? TVD expert Mandi Bierly joins me on this week’s edition of the InsideTV Podcast to break down the ramifications of the big new twist and what it means for everyone in Mystic Falls. Not only that, but we also take a long hard look at the new vampire hunter in town, Connor Jordan. Whatever you do, don’t shake his hand! Just click on the audio player below to listen in.

But that’s not all, oh lovers of all things supernatural. We also have a revealing chat with the new big bad on The Walking Dead. The Governor is coming, and the man who plays him, David Morrissey, stopped by our studio along with Walking Dead exec-producer Gale Anne Hurd to drop some intel on both the man and his seemingly idyllic town of Woodbury (which we will see for the first time in this Sunday’s episode). Gale also talks about the big change in Rick this season, while David responds to some trash talk from Andrew Lincoln, who dissed and dismissed his on-screen opponent to us a few months ago. The battle is joined! READ FULL STORY

'Vampire Diaries': Damon threatens to leave town, Stefan wears an awesome leather jacket -- CLIP

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 spoilerroom@ew.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.”

'Vampire Diaries:' Nina Dobrev says Elena is 'stuck in the middle' of Stefan and Damon -- VIDEO

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:

Ratings: 'Vampire Diaries,' 'Beauty and Beast' bow beautifully

The last time I led with a CW show in a ratings report was … well, never, but the debut of Beauty and the Beast and the return of The Vampire Diaries deserve some applause. The debut of the Kristin Kreuk show that’s a reboot of the 80s’ drama with Ron Perlman and Linda Hamilton averaged 3.1 million viewers on Thursday, up 63% in adults 18-49 and 33% in adults 18-34 versus what The Secret Circle did last season. It, combined with the fourth season return of The Vampire Diaries (which was not only up 25% in women 18-34 but beat ABC and NBC in that demo), ended up giving the network a win among females 12-17 (2.2 rating/8 share) — a target demo that’s not particularly interested in watching Joe Biden condescend to Paul Ryan.

Now back to our regular programming. Ratings are a bit screwy (and expected to change) because of the live Vice Presidential debate and the hand-wringing analysis that followed, but here’s what we know based on preliminary numbers: CBS had the best night in 18-49 (2.7/7) and viewers (9.3 million) with The Big Bang Theory earning a 4.2/13 and 13.7 million viewers and Two & A Half Men posting a 3.4/9 and 11.1 million. Its coverage of the debate earned a 2.2/5 while its analysis snagged a 1.6/4. READ FULL STORY
