If you haven’t tried out the Vampire Diaries Stakeout over at the CW, you may want to give it a try. Every week they do a little puzzle or game that, when completed, unlocks some kind of behind-the-scenes goodie. This week’s clip features Julie Plec and Caroline Dries, and focuses on a much-discussed moment between Damon and Elena that happened in last week’s episode.
Spoiler warning applies, but if you’re up to date on the show and want a little preview of tonight’s episode, get on over there and give it a go! Hint: this week’s game is like a witchy version of Mad-Libs, get creative for hilarious results.
The Insider has an exclusive behind the scenes peek at the filming of Our Town (EP311), tomorrow night’s new episode of The Vampire Diaries. Along with the usual set photos, Kat Graham provides some teases:
Of the new set Our Town spotlights, Kat tells me, “It’s a very cool location we’ve never filmed in before and it’s important that people pay attention. You should pay attention to everything on this show because it always circles back into play somehow.”
The CW’s Judy Yam tweeted out a behind the scenes sneak peek from an upcoming Vampire Diaries episode this afternoon, featuring Joseph Morgan and Michael Trevino. Is it January 5th yet?
Michael Trevino is officially the only person we know that can make falling off an inflatable tube at high speeds look awesomely cool. In this special edition of Maestro Knows, Michael goes all over the place, including to the Vampire Diaries set to give a special behind-the-scenes tour. The set stuff starts at around 4:35, but the whole video gives an interesting peek into Michael’s life in Atlanta.

It’s almost flashback time again, and Claire Holt is giving tantalizing hints about what might be coming up on Ordinary People tonight. There’s a lot more than fancy hair going on in this episode, according to an interview with TVLine, we’re going to be learning quite a bit.
“You get to see how [Rebekah] interacts with her family and what it was like back then,” continues Holt, who says the episode sheds light on “how her relationship with her brothers and how her relationship with Klaus developed. [You'll see] why they became so close and why they are so loyal to each other.”
The Insider has a new video of Paul Wesley talking about what’s going on with Stefan as we move forward from the last episode, and two exclusive behind the scenes pictures from tonight’s episode, Smells Like Teen Spirit (EP306). Beware of spoilers if you haven’t seen up through The Reckoning (EP305), and the same goes for the EW article below!
In other news, if you were hoping for some Jeremy/Katherine romance, you are out of luck today. E! Online spoke with Steven R. McQueen, and it seems there are a few things about Katherine’s personality that just don’t work for the youngest Gilbert. Steven said:
“Katherine usually has some sort of bad intention, and I think she is usually up to something. With my ring I’m like a never-failing blood bag, so I feel like me being around her is never all that good for me.”
Smart boy, that Jeremy! Besides, I think it’s safe to say he’s got his heads -and his brain!- already filled with girl trouble, both from the living and the dead. Add in Stefan’s new attitude and everyone in Mystic Falls had better be watching their backs, and their necks, tonight!
Check out this very cool behind-the-scenes video from E! News! There’s some really interesting little tidbits from the crew in this video, so there’s a glimpse of a side of the show we don’t normally get to see. Don’t worry, though, you’ll see some of the actors as well. Keep an eye out for Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev. Thanks to @VampDNetwork for the video!
If you missed the 2011 Scream Awards on Spike yesterday, never fear, we have some video for you. Paul Wesley co-presented a couple of awards with Erika Christensen, including Best Comic Book Writer, and Best Sci-Fi Actor.

Big thanks to users DMspacefulPlus and Beckyabc2 for the videos!
