TV Guide has more from their post-mortem interview with Julie Plec. Warning: If you haven’t watched through Stand By Me (EP415), best avoid some major spoilers. And, in case you missed it yesterday, check out our EP415 post-mortem round-up.
The second half the season will be more grounded in high school. What can we expect?
Plec: We just started shooting the prom episode, which is episode 19 and graduation is going to be the finale. We’ll get to end the season with all of those great questions of who’s going to be where, who’s going to be with who, who’s going to do what.

Ready for a closer look at Stand by Me (EP415)? You’re in luck: here’s a clip from the CW.
Things have been getting pretty intense for Bonnie on The Vampire Diaries, but what about her love life? That’s what Hollywood Crush wants to know, and they went to Kat Graham to get the info.
TV Guide talked to Kat Graham about tonight’s episode A View to a Kill (EP412) and Bonnie’s run-in with Kol. Sounds like it will be pretty dramatic:
“This is the first scene that Bonnie and Kol have had together and it’s honestly one of the most intense scenes I’ve had with one other person since I don’t know when.”
Watch the Vampire Diaries Bite:
Kat Graham has done several interviews in advance of tonight’s new episode, Catch Me If You Can (EP411). First, at ETonline, Kat talks a bit about the introduction of Bonnie’s father but then gets into her character’s overall arc:
So much crazy Bonnie stuff is coming up. I’m excited that, if Bonnie makes any turn as to who she is and what she’s about, I’m excited to know that a lot of fans will come with her. I’m excited for them to grow with Bonnie and excited for them to see what Bonnie can do. For so long, this was a character who was never at her full power. She was always losing it and then getting some of it back … she’s struggled with finding herself as a witch and finding herself in her power.
And at Hollywood Life, Kat discusses Bonnie and Jeremy:
I think their relationship is still healing, and Bonnie’s starting to trust him again. She’s going to need someone more than ever, a partner in crime. I can also say her love was never lost for him. She never really got over it.
