Ian Somerhalder was featured on MTV’s The Seven yesterday and he discussed his favorite things about The Vampire Diaries, whether he prefers playing the good or bad guy, Damon Salvatore, and you – the fans (and people asking him to bite them).
The CW has uploaded a webclip for The Last Dance (EP218), featuring Stefan and Damon having quite a subdued and serious conversation. Tune in next Thursday, April 14th for what’s sure to be a rather explosive episode.
New episodes, new installments of the CW’s behind-the-scenes series Mystic Diaries! This time it’s Nina Dobrev and Zach Roerig strolling us through filming, with special appearances by Katerina Graham, Ian Somerhalder, Steven R. McQueen, Candice Accola, and the Vampire Diaries crew.

The Vampire Diaries is back! And what an episode, right? Last night proved that we are in for a roller coaster ride as we approach the Season 2 finale, so spread the word that our show is kicking ass and taking names. After last night’s ep, we have FIVE back-to-back episodes until the finale on May 12th. According to TV by the Numbers, Know Thy Enemy clocked 2.75 million viewers last night.
The Vampire Diaries and Nikita each returned down a tenth with adults 18-49 from their last original episodes.
Unacceptable, you guys. Did you see what went down last night? That business was BANANAS. We know the hiatuses kill everyone (believe me, we know), but if your friends, followers, acquaintances, grandparents fell off over the month and a half break, you need to get them back on the bandwagon ASAP. And just to be clear, we’re positive the show is not in danger of cancellation right now, we just want the eyeballs this crazy goodness deserves, okay?
UPDATE: iTunes links now added!
Canadian fans: Watch the episode on the CTV website.

Katerina Graham represents The Vampire Diaries in the CW/2012 Ford Focus Show Room and she’s giving fans a preview of next week’s episode, The Last Dance (EP218).
Oh, Matt. We’re not going to give anything away here about last night’s rather distressing developments on the Matt and Caroline front, but – oh, Matt. Zap2It‘s Carina MacKenzie has posted her set visit sit down with Zach Roerig, who believes – like so many of us – that Matt is a good guy to the core and will do that right thing. (“Matt is gonna be a man. He’s gonna man up.”) He also talks about a possible return by Melinda Clarke as Mama Donovan and (most importantly) he says, “Care, get in the truck!” TWICE.
“Knowing Matt as a person, at the end of the day these are all people that he really loves. Once he gets over the shock and the general fear, he’ll reach a point of understanding. I don’t think he’s going to turn his back on Caroline forever, and especially, Matt will never turn his back on Elena.”
CW Source returns with another Vampire Diaries cast interview, this time with Candice Accola. The usual topics are covered: Caroline, Matt, Tyler, singing, and impending doom.

TUNE IN TO A NEW EPISODE OF VAMPIRE DIARIES TONIGHT AT 8/7C ON THE CW!
Zap2It‘s Carina MacKenzie continues her set video interview posting spree with Sara Canning. Sara talks about the rocky road for Jenna and Alaric, particularly now that Alaric’s dead wife has turned up on her doorstep. She also touches on what might happen if Jenna becomes fully aware of what’s going on in Mystic Falls and whether her loyalties will be with Elena and the vampires in her life or the anti-vampire agenda.
Jenna and Alaric definitely have a rough road ahead as everything he’s hidden from her comes to the surface. Could their relationship truly be over so soon after he dropped the L-word? “From the cliffhanger I think we can assume that things are going to look kind of bleak,” Canning says. “Maybe they’ll work something out. I can say that Isobel showing up at the door is the beginning of a bit of an unraveling of a few things.”
Entertainment Weekly‘s Mandi Bierly pried more clues from Julie Plec about the final six episodes of The Vampire Diaries (show returns tonight at 8/7c!), including tidbits about all our favorites: Matt, Caroline, Tyler, Isobel, John, Alaric, Jenna, Katherine, Elena, Bonnie, Jeremy, and yes, the Salvatore brothers. She also talks about Joseph Morgan’s dedication to his role as Klaus (we love him more and more and he hasn’t even hit our screens yet) and gives us this about the Season 2 finale, As I Lay Dying:
Expect that season finale to be an emotional one. “There’s gonna be a lot to deal with, and a lot of our heroes going through some pretty dark times and trying to come out the other side,” she says. “The one thing that we know that we don’t want to do this year is leave 13 threads dangling at the end of the season. So while yes, there will absolutely be cliffhangers in the finale, it’s not gonna be like 97. We want to let the audience feel like they have begun a ride with us at the top of the season and seen it all the way through, and that we’ve delivered a true ending to them.”
And E!Online has more “Klaus Chapter” teasing from Katerina Graham (she’s really starting to freak us out – seriously):
So it would probably be best [for Bonnie] to stay under the radar and far away from Klaus, right? Graham reveals their meeting, while not tonight, is very soon. “In this new episode Bonnie does not meet him, but she will meet him before the finale. I will say that. He is definitely making an entrance.” We couldn’t possibly believe that anyone could make a more head-turning entrance than Elijah (Daniel Gillies) or Katherine, but Graham assures us: “Oh, you have no idea. You have no idea. It’s going to freak everyone out. It’s the last thing you’d expect.”
