Yesterday, members of the media were invited to a special screening of tonight’s new (and highly anticipated) episode of The Vampire Diaries: Dangerous Liaisons (EP314), and they’re hinting we can expect healthy doses of angst alongside those sharp tuxes and glittering ballgowns. Is anyone surprised? First up, members of the TVD cast – Zach Roerig, Candice Accola, Kat Graham, Nina Dobrev – tease what’s coming tonight and in future episodes in another E!Online set visit video.
As for the finished product, E!Online has this to tease (SPOILERS):
Elena shares some very intense moments with both Salvatore brothers, including a scene where one of the brothers drops three very important words. Fans of both couples should prepare for some major angst, including Elena hurting Damon and possibly causing the return of the old Damon. We won’t lie, we kind of missed him!
On a related note, Zap2It also teases the triangle and five other things about tonight’s episode (SPOILERS):
Elena is caught in a virtual tug-of-war throughout the episode (at one point, they literally each have her by the arm). The question, as always, is whether Stefan can find it in himself to care about Elena — and whether or not she still wants him to care about her at this point. That will pretty much be answered by the end of the hour. Per usual, Paul Wesley’s performance will give you goose bumps.
Julie Plec was on hand for a Q&A during the episode screening yesterday, and The Insider has this amusing tidbit to share:
When I asked her about the likelihood of non-Mystic Falls law enforcement agents ever coming to town (ya know, like if this mysterious stabber continues his/her reign of terror for much longer), Julie said, “Truth be told we’ve had the “FBI Agents Come to Town” pitch on the board since episode three of season one. As this thought that somebody, at some point, is going to have to come to this town and be like, ‘What the hell is going on here?!? Sheriff you’re fired!’”
And if you need even more photos from Dangerous Liaisons, Hollywood Life has a handful of exclusive behind-the-scenes photos from filming.
As if our anticipation for Dangerous Liaisons (EP314), tomorrow night’s new episode of The Vampire Diaries, wasn’t unbearable enough – here come Julie Plec and Caroline Dries with a preview of what we can expect.
THIS POST IS A STICKY (BECAUSE IT’S A BIG DEAL). KEEP SCROLLING FOR NEWER POSTS.
UPDATE #3: Thanks to EW for passing along a bigger version of the cover! View in Gallery.
Thanks to the eagle-eyed @epnebelle in NYC, we have our first look at Paul Wesley, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder on the cover of the February 17th edition of Entertainment Weekly. And yes, it is absolutely real. Details are scant as of right now, but we expect EW will have more soon now that the cat’s out of the bag, including a nice clean version of the cover. The cover implies there will be three different versions available (we’re speculating possibly one of the three, one of Nina and Ian and one of Paul and Nina, but that’s just speculation) and should be hitting newsstands any day now. Watch this space for more details as we get them!
UPDATE: Entertainment Weekly has posted ALL THREE special covers – and holy crap, y’all. As we speculated, the other two covers are Ian/Nina and Nina/Paul. They’ve also posted a teaser of the feature article.
This week’s EW cover story also features interviews with Vampire‘s stars — Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder, and Paul Wesley — who talk about keeping the love triangle red-hot, where they fall in the Stelena-Delena shipper wars, and all rumors swirling around their real-life relationships.
HUGE congrats to the cast/crew of Vampire Diaries!
E!Online has more cast interviews from their recent visit to the Vampire Diaries set and this time Candice Accola discusses the finer points of…uh, dancing, jewelry, and Tyler, in a rather coy, playful manner. You can watch Candice’s take below and then head over to E!Online for what Joseph Morgan has to say.
We mentioned Nina Dobrev‘s feature in the February issue of CBS Watch! Magazine last month (and tweeted a photo of the spread on Twitter), but looks like Watch! has finally added the profile – titled The Dobrev Diaries – to their website. You may still find the issue (with The Good Wife‘s Matt Czuchry and Archie Panjabi on the cover) on your local newsstand.
It’s called “having a moment.” The Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev arrived at the red carpet of the 63rd Emmy Awards on Sept. 18 and stood serenely before the wall of photographers, her crimson strapless gown—all dangerous curves and soft flounces—a jaw- dropper, hair and makeup impeccable. Just like that, a new It girl was born, and the 22-year-old actress’s life would never be the same.
As a little kid, Ian already had the glib and gab of a vampire. “I remember, I was so young, I had an imaginary friend named Ian whom my poor family had to deal with probably by a year,” Ian recalls. “Ian liked everything I liked so I asked my mom for this whole pack of gum and then she found me an hour later with my mouth full of it. And my mom said, ‘Wait a minute, Ian. I thought some was for Ian, too.’ And I said, ‘Nope, nope. Ian doesn’t like this kind.’ [laughs] So I used to do things like that. It just kinda made my mom realize that I was meant to be an actor.”

Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, Joseph Morgan, and Claire Holt were featured on MTV’s 10 on Top yesterday morning, previewing this week’s upcoming (and highly anticipated) episode, Dangerous Liaisons (EP314). (Speaking of, Daniel Gillies tweeted out an AMAZING Original family portrait of sorts last night, courtesy of director/producer Chris Grismer.) It goes without saying, but spoilers through Bringing Out The Dead (EP313), UKers-who-don’t-iTunes-it.
Well, we’re accustomed to seeing these “previews” before the episode, but looks like we’re getting this video with Julie Plec and Caroline Dries as a sort of retrospective. XOXO.
Courtesy of KSiteTV, our first look at images from All My Children (EP315), airing Thursday, February 16th. Check out a still below and then head over to KSiteTV to see the rest! Caution: Highly spoilery for last night’s episode, Bringing Out The Dead (EP313).
UPDATE: Stills added to the Gallery!
Are you ready for the return of The Vampire Diaries this Thursday? Feel like celebrating by supporting an awesome cause and possibly getting your hands on a unique piece of TVD memorabilia?
This week’s episode, Bringing Out The Dead (EP313), was penned by Al Septien and Turi Meyer and they’ve donated a signed script to an eBay auction raising funds for Thomas Starr King Middle School, a public school based in Los Angeles. The script is signed by Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Zach Roerig, Candice Accola, Matt Davis, Kat Graham, Joseph Morgan, Persia White…and others. (Watch tomorrow night!) You can also bid on a Season 2 cast and crew hoodie!
From the school’s website:
We envision a school in which all students will be equipped with meaningful life tools, such as skills in literacy; critical thinking; basic academics; technology; the appreciation of art; democratic values of acceptance, participation and accountability, and the ability to work with a variety of people from diverse backgrounds.
Now is the time for TVD fandom to rally and do what it does best: Support a worthy cause. ALL proceeds from the auction go to helping Thomas Starr King Middle School continue its mission of providing a quality education for its students. That’s an amazing thing for the fandom to be a part of, don’t you think? Please spread the word through Twitter, Facebook, your blog – everywhere!
TV Guide caught up with a slew of TV stars at the recent Television Critics Association Press Tour and our very own Joseph Morgan shares his worst audition experience. Joseph’s story starts at around the 30 second mark. (Poor guy.)
