Entertainment Weekly has a new webclip from Thursday’s season four finale, Graduation (EP423). Beware of spoilers if you haven’t seen The Walking Dead (EP422).
Graduation day is almost upon us, my friends! Express-post those grad announcements to Uncle Bob and Aunt Mary, because the cap-and-gown finale is right around the corner. And in true TVD fashion, The Walking Dead unleashed a whole lot of crazy in preparation for the big finish. Of course, in Mystic Falls, the “zombies” are a heck of a lot prettier than on that other show . . .
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.

Quick guide to the poll: The zombie apocalypse hasn’t arrived in Mystic falls (yet), but when they do come, they’ll be wanting brains.

As Vampire Diaries Season 4 draws to a close, Julie Plec is chatting up the final two episodes of the season – The Walking Dead (EP422) and Graduation (EP423). Check out the interview below and be sure to read through our first JP interview round-up from this morning.
THR: Ghosts play a pivotal part in the remaining episodes of the season.
Plec: The big agenda of Silas is that he wants to drop the veil to the other side and allow ghosts to roam freely all over the world. Bonnie (Kat Graham), among others, are intent on making sure that that doesn’t happen. From the episode description, that clues us in that something is going on and something’s going wrong. We will see what happens there. But definitely the ghosts provide the antagonist and nostalgic relationships coming back into our world as well. It’s a little bit of both.
How great was it to have certain people back?
Plec: Without spoiling who’s around, they are some of my favorite characters to write for. And just to be able to have them back in our world for a short time was so nostalgic and sweet and warm and wonderful. The finale has a lot of ups and downs and twists and turns, but when all said and done, it’s one of the more nicely and kindly emotional episodes that we’ve done. And it has a lot to do with these familiar faces that are popping up for everybody.
In order to take Silas out, Bonnie has to reach out to her witchy ancestors, which has historically been a dangerous choice for her. Plec says, “Unfortunately, as she says at the top of this episode, ‘There’s only been one person that’s been able to put [Silas] down, two thousand years ago, and that was Qetsiyah, so I need to go ask her for some advice.’ What Bonnie does, how she does it, and how it connects to ghosts suddenly walking through Mystic Falls is all part of the next episode.”
