Previously on The Vampire Diaries, Nina Dobrev was working overtime as her dual roles got snarky with each other. Elijah made the entire fandom do a facepalm and we learned -again- why vampires should never, ever play Go Fish. It’s been a couple of weeks, so now’s your chance to brush up on American Gothic (EP418) with some recaps before we all get dressed for prom tomorrow night.
TV Guide has a new Vampire Diaries Bite for us! This one features audio from Julie Plec about Klaus, Caroline and whether or not they’ll be sharing any special moments at the prom. Enjoy!
The clock is counting down to the new episode on Thursday, but if you can’t wait another minute for some scoop on Pictures Of You (EP419), we’ve got a couple of links (spoiler alert!) that might be of interest.

Is it Thursday yet?
Willoughby, Pennsylvania: cream corn capital, beautiful place to die, and the site of the return of two of the most beloved characters on TVD. With doppelganger hijinks, hilarity, twists, tricks and ultimatums, American Gothic held me captive, like Katherine with a fork through her hand at the diner table. Except, you know, willingly captive.
The Vampire Diaries returns with its final stretch of Season 4 episodes next week, starting with Pictures of You (EP419) on Thursday, April 18th. Here’s a clip featuring Caroline, Bonnie, Elena, Rebekah, and some beautiful prom dresses. We’re getting closer to the Season 4 finale!
Hi, I’m Holly, IT professional, steel magnolia, and TVD fangirl. I came to TVD when it was a book series and have been watching since the pilot aired. I’m also the co-host of a podcast which covers TVD & Supernatural, “Whiskey & Salt Rounds,” that you can find at Gurus of Geek. You can find me on Twitter @hollye83, where I talk TV, politics, books and pop culture. I’m excited to be putting together the Friday Night Bites round-up for my friends here at V-D.net.
Friday Night Bites is a weekly round-up for various tidbits of show and cast/crew news not quite big enough to warrant a blog post, not strictly Vampire Diaries-related, or that somehow just fell through the cracks.

There may not be a new Vampire Diaries episode tonight, but that doesn’t mean the CW can’t tease the show’s return. ET Online has our first look at a special poster for The Originals (EP420) backdoor pilot, set to air Thursday, April 25th.
In New Orleans, the air is thick with blood…
That’s The CW’s tease for The Originals, the April 25 episode of The Vampire Diaries that also serves as a backdoor pilot for a spinoff revolving around Klaus, Rebekah and Elijah!
The poster features Klaus, Elijah, Rebekah, and new character Marcel, played by Charles Michael Davis.

The CW has released the official synopsis for The Vampire Diaries: She’s Come Undone (EP421), airing Thursday, May 2nd. Highlight for spoilers:
LET’S MAKE A DEAL — Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) try a brutal new approach to provoke Elena (Nina Dobrev) into turning her humanity back on, and Caroline (Candice Accola) is frustrated when her attempt to intervene backfires. When Elena figures out a way to call the Salvatore brothers’ bluff, they call for backup from a surprising source. Matt (Zach Roerig) gives Rebekah (Claire Holt) some unsolicited advice on her life choices, and she tries to help him in return. Caroline has a confusing and dangerous encounter with Klaus (Joseph Morgan), and Katherine (Nina Dobrev) is suspicious when Bonnie (Kat Graham) makes her an offer that she promises will benefit them both.
The episode was directed by Darnell Martin and written by Michael Narducci and Rebecca Sonnenshine.
