On the last TV Guide Vampire Diaries Bite of the season, Julie Plec previews what’s to come for our main trio in tomorrow’s season finale, Graduation (EP423).
“I’ve always said that, for me, the true love story of the show is the love between those brothers,” Plec says. “Every time they come together, something tears them apart and usually it’s their own actions. Inevitably, there’s the love for the same girl and history repeating itself that drives a wedge between them all the time, but it’s baby steps. This season there were a lot of hiccups and … with luck, the brothers will be able to survive them.”
Then head over to E!Online for another pre-finale interview with Julie. On Silas:
“We definitely knew that we wanted to slow-play the beginning of the mythology this season and rather than instantly set up a bad guy and an agenda, it would be a mystery not only to our characters, but to the audience as well,” she explains. “Being able to unfold the mystery of Silas over the course of a season had its pitfalls and also its benefits, and I think ultimately, when the audience sees how it ends in this episode, they may start to understand the choices we made and why we made them.”

Spoilers, spoilers, spoilers! Under no circumstances should you have anything to do with this Vampire Diaries Bite if you haven’t watched last night’s episode (Down The Rabbit Hole, EP414) yet. If you have…enjoy!
We know Vaughn (guest star Charlie Bewley) will play a big role in this week’s new episode, Down the Rabbit Hole (EP414). In this week’s Vampire Diaries Bite, TV Guide talks to Ian Somerhalder about whether Vaughn will pose a threat to Damon in particular. And . . . looks like yes:
“Damon would be an extremely difficult man to get tied up to a tree, unless you’re Elena or some hot sorority girl who is compelled to do so. So the fact that he’s there means Vaughn knows what he’s doing.”
In this week’s Vampire Diaries Bite, TV Guide talks to Ian Somerhalder about whether he thinks Elena is in love with Damon and whether he’d be able to embrace that love.
“Even as dumb and crazy as Damon can be, it’s like, ‘ouch fire hot, ouch fire hot, ouch fire hot.’ I would hope the man would take a break. Hell, people get burned over a six-month relationship and take a year to heal. If you got screwed over for 150 years, you can imagine how that carries forward.”
In preparation for tonight’s return of The Vampire Diaries, TV Guide‘s Robyn Ross talked to Claire Holt about what’s coming up for Rebekah in tonight’s After School Special (EP410) as well as the rest of the season. What is Rebekah’s goal? Will she be using Stefan for that goal or might she have more complicated feelings? Watch the video to find out!
We got Joseph Morgan‘s take on the Klaus/Tyler situation in our last post, so it’s time to hear from Michael Trevino. On this week’s TV Guide Vampire Diaries Bite, he talks about why the time is right for Tyler to put his plan in motion in tonight’s mid-season finale, O Come, All Ye Faithful (EP409). There are a few more quotes from Joseph Morgan in the article as well, so make sure you click over!
And when you’re done with that, head over to Entertainment Tonight Online for an exclusive behind the scenes photo of a certain dramatic scene on dock . . . Well, that doesn’t bode well.
TV Fanatic has an interview with Candice Accola that covers everything from Caroline’s love life to her relationships with Stefan and Elena. The friendship between Stefan and Caroline is a big favorite among many fans, and according to Accola we’ll be seeing more of it soon.
Watch out for spoilers if you aren’t up to date on the episodes!
“You’ll definitely see that friendship develop,” Accola says. “The parallel that runs through both of their lives right now is that Stefan is trying to do right by Elena even if he doesn’t agree with her choices, while Caroline is doing the same with Tyler.”
This week’s Vampire Diaries Bite from TV Guide features audio from Julie Plec talking about Tyler and Caroline’s love life.
Nina Dobrev called in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest this morning to talk about what’s coming up for Elena this season. Take a listen!

In a similar vein, IGN also has some quotes from Julie about Alaric, Klaus, some upcoming flashbacks and a few words about whether or not these kids are ever going to graduate. Julie’s comments come from the same Q&A that we’ve blogged from several other sources, so don’t be surprised if some of them seem familiar. One of the things she addresses is something a lot of fans have commented on: the serious lack of stable, surviving parental figures on the show.
“The emotional stakes of this series are about these young people partnered with these people who have lived and will continue to live an eternal life and all of the complications of that and everything that means. And stripping away these kids from the comfort of a loving and caring and supportive family and giving them the challenge of survival, both emotional, and literal survival.”
