We may have to wait a few weeks for another new episode, but Joseph Morgan gave TV Guide a little preview of coming attractions:
“In the episodes to come after break, there’s a certain amount of [Klaus] sitting with his feet up, looking at the carnage as it unfolds before him,” Morgan tells TVGuide.com. “He’s pulling the puppet strings and then letting them go to see what happens.”
And will the other characters ever get around to, you know, trying to kill him?
“Our heroes are at odds with each other. If they could unite themselves like they did at the end of Season 3, maybe they would have a chance [at killing Klaus], but as long as he can keep manipulating and planting doubt in their minds, they won’t be able to come together and defeat him,” Morgan says. “Everyone has forgotten that they put Klaus down, but Klaus hasn’t forgotten. It’s like lining up chess pieces on a board — everyone is playing against each other and everyone’s arguing!”
There are also some interesting teases about the return of certain characters, so make sure you click over if you want to know!
Relive those gloriously bloody O Come, All Ye Faithful (EP409) moments with Arielle Kebbel as she recaps the episode in the TVD Rehash. And a reminder that The Vampire Diaries returns Thursday, January 17th!
How fleeting happiness is in Mystic Falls. In an episode that frustrated me on first watch but resonated on the second (more on that in a bit), the ties that bind brothers, friends, lovers, and allies. With the question of the sire bond at the forefront, We’ll Always Have Bourbon Street pushed characters into taking a position, making judgments, and deciding what was, for them, the right course of action.

SPOILERS ALERT! It’s almost impossible to post anything about last night’s episode -O Come All Ye Faithful (EP409)- without spoiling it. If you haven’t seen it yet, use extreme caution when reading anything Vampire Diaries related today! The mid-season finale was especially rough on Tyler Lockwood and left Vampire Diaries fans with lots of questions. TV Guide went to the source to get some answers, they spoke with Julie Plec, who answers questions about specific details from last night’s episode and reflects back on the first half of season four.
Is Tyler now screwed since Klaus found out he was trying to kill him?
Plec: Tyler has definitely been marked by Klaus, and that’s something that will play out over the next few episodes — the repercussions of Tyler’s move against Klaus.
TVLine also has an interview with Julie, and again, spoilers everywhere.
TVLINE | We didn’t actually see Tyler react to the death. How will he deal with it?
[When] the next episode picks up, a little bit of time has happened, and we’ll see that Tyler’s not handling it altogether too well. He’s keeping to himself, refusing to show his emotions and stewing in his own grief and anger, which is making it difficult to help him. It’s sad for Caroline, who just wants to be there for him.
January 17 seems like a long way away, huh? Not sure if this will make it better or worse, but here’s the CW’s extended promo for the next episode, which we think is probably called After School Special (EP410). UPDATE: The CW has now confirmed the episode title.

The Vampire Diaries returns Thursday, January 17th; check out the short promo and HAPPY HOLIDAYS! UPDATE: The CW has now confirmed the episode title.
THIS POST IS A STICKY. KEEP SCROLLING FOR NEW POSTS.
It’s taken four seasons, but we finally get to see Christmas in Mystic Falls! We somehow doubt that the town’s resident hybrid Original is any kind of Saint Niklaus, and he probably favours naughty kids over nice ones, but he’s bound to liven the day up.
Once you’ve seen the episode and shaken yourself back to reality, swing by here to rate the new episode of The Vampire Diaries. All discussion about the episode is welcomed and encouraged in the comments of this post.
Remember, some parts of Canada watch the show an hour earlier, so beware of spoilers and avoid the comments if you haven’t seen the episode yet.

Ready for O Come, All Ye Faithful (EP409) tonight? Everyone has opinions on the latest turn of events in the Damon and Elena relationship and TV Guide Magazine caught up with Ian Somerhalder to discuss what the sire bond means to the couple’s fledgling romance and the steps they’ll each take to ensure what Elena is experiencing is the real deal:
TV Guide Magazine: Will it be good for the show if Elena and Damon stay together for a while?
Somerhalder: I think it’s good for the story: If Elena is with Damon, this sire bond is always an issue; plus, his brother’s really angry. So until both of them know if it’s true love, they’ve decided they’re not going to sleep together again. There will be more romance and less sex. Damon wants to do the right thing, but losing Elena is not an option. It’s a tough predicament for him.
