If you’ve been tuning in to the CW this week, you may have caught this new Thursday night promo for The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle. “Come for a bite, stay for dessert.” If you’re not caught up on both shows, this may be mildly spoilery, so proceed with caution!
Paul Wesley announced via Twitter earlier today that he would be presenting at this year’s Scream Awards, SpikeTV’s annual awards show honoring the best in horror, science fiction, and fantasy media. The awards ceremony was tonight but you’ll be able to watch the big show this Tuesday, October 18th at 9pm/8c on Spike. In the meantime, check out photos of Paul and the lovely Torrey DeVitto on tonight’s red carpet (see more at Vampire Diaries Web) and continue to wonder why Vampire Diaries didn’t receive a single Scream nomination this year. (Oh, you thought we’d forgotten about that, Spike? Hmmm?)
Now that we’ve (somewhat) recovered from the crazy train of awesome that was The Reckoning (EP305), there is more Vampire Diaries speculation to be had about the mythology not-so-slowly unfolding on our screens. We didn’t get a lot of straight-up answers last night, but there was plenty of opportunity to read between the lines of what we were told. We’re going to concentrate on three things in this post (we had more points, but the post started getting ridiculously long, so expect another post soon-ish!): Elena and the curse, our mysterious new character, and the Original Witch. (We’re thinking hybrids are gonna need a whooooole other post.)
Here’s what we learned and what we’re speculating about after last night’s episode of The Vampire Diaries. Go crazy with your own theories in the comments!
And here it is, the extended promo for next week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries: Smells Like Teen Spirit (EP306).

Well, Vampire Diaries fans: If you think you can handle it after tonight’s episode, here is the short promo for Smells Like Teen Spirit (EP306). Spoiler warning applies. Now can someone please give us a hug? Or therapy?
The CW has released the official synopsis for Ordinary People (EP308), the next major flashback episode of The Vampire Diaries. The episode airs Thursday, November 3rd. Highlight for spoilers or head to the Episode Index:
THE ORIGINAL FAMILY — With help from Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Bonnie (Kat Graham), Alaric (Matt Davis) tries to decipher the meaning behind his recent discovery. Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Rebekah (guest star Claire Holt) engage in a mean-girl power struggle, until Rebekah finally reveals some of her family’s ancient secrets and the violent past she shares with Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies). Damon (Ian Somerhalder) tries a reckless new approach to make a breakthrough with Stefan (Paul Wesley), and they’re both surprised by an unlikely ally.
The episode was directed by J. Miller Tobin and written by Caroline Dries and Julie Plec from a story by Nick Wauters.
Julie Plec previews tomorrow night’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, The Reckoning (EP305), and the CW preview has a ton of new footage! If you were nervous before about what’s sure to be an epic episode, this preview elevates the tension considerably. “It’s a game-changing episode,” Julie says. “And we’re really excited about it.” Tune in tomorrow night, 8/7c on the CW! Watch the preview below or on YouTube.
The Hollywood Reporter has released its list of Top 50 Power Showrunners for 2011 and Vampire Diaries executive producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec make the list (under Drama). Visit THR for details on how their list is determined, then check out Kev and Julie’s brief profile write-up:
Now with a serial-killer drama in development at Fox, [Williamson] must lean increasingly on Diaries’ co-showrunner Plec, 39, whom he dubs his unofficial “life partner.” Jokes Plec: “Kevin and I have a highly functional dysfunctional system.”
