Enjoy this taste of Because the Night (EP417), featuring Caroline, Klaus, and Stefan!
Zap2it has two new (video!) interviews up, one with Candice Accola and one with Paul Wesley. Spoilers for Stand By Me (EP415).
In this first interview, Candice Accola talks about what it’s like when a cast member departs for a while, how Caroline is dealing with the new Elena situation and the departure of Tyler.
Paul Wesley talks about Elena and Stefan, but he also speaks a little bit about Stefan’s relationship with Rebekah and his thoughts on The Originals spinoff.
Intrigued by Elena’s new look? Entertainment Weekly has an interview with TVD costume designer Leigh Leverett to talk about the style switch up. Again, beware of spoilers if you aren’t up to date on the episodes.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How would you describe the “no-humanity” version of Elena’s wardrobe? What kind of transformation can fans expect?
LEIGH LEVERETT: It’s more like she just can go in anywhere and get whatever she wants. She can go into any boutique and compel anyone to give her anything as opposed to trying to look like Elena. Before it was still kind of Elena being Elena even though she was a vampire. Now it’s like she can just see something that she wants, and she can just go get it.
B-E AGGRESSIVE, right, Elena? Check out another clip from tomorrow night’s brand-new episode of The Vampire Diaries, Bring It On (EP416).
We know, we know: Hiatuses suck, but one Thursday down and only one more to go until The Vampire Diaries returns with all-new episodes on Thursday, March 14th! In the meantime, feast your eyes on some new episode stills for Bring It On (EP416) and Because the Night (EP417) and click the images to view the episode’s respective gallery on KSiteTV.
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.
In other news, Futon Critic is reporting that the CW has nailed down a season finale date for The Vampire Diaries: Thursday, May 16th.
There’s a lot of talk about Caroline’s relationships with Tyler and Klaus, but does it have to be all about the romance? Nope! In an interview with TV Guide, Candice Accola discusses another potential path for Caroline:
“What brings out Caroline’s openness is that… Klaus [reminds her] that there’s a whole other world out there,” Accola says. “She can travel and experience things and grow and learn, and that’s been implanted in Caroline’s brain and she can’t get it out. Klaus is the only person she can dream big with. It’s not that ‘we can run away in the sunset and be in love’ dream that she has with Tyler, but it’s running off to Paris alone and being independent. That’s enticing. … Klaus has aroused those thoughts in Caroline.”
Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive new webclip from Stand By Me (EP415). Spoiler alert for last week’s episode, so only watch if you’ve already seen Down The Rabbit Hole (EP414).
It’s almost Thursday! Here’s another peek from Down the Rabbit Hole (EP414).
Only a few more days until The Vampire Diaries returns from hiatus! It’s hard to be patient for even a few more days, but TV Guide is here to help with an exclusive clip from Thursday’s new episode, After School Special (EP410). Is it Thursday yet?!
TVLine has some more from their talk with Julie Plec about the Salvatores, Klaus, Caroline & Tyler, and more coming up in the second half of season four. This passage about Klaus is intriguing:
“The beauty of Klaus, much like Damon, is that his horrible misdeeds are all born out of a place of a complete lack of trust and faith as a result of being repeatedly betrayed and rejected in his life. I’m not saying I excuse his horrific behavior, but it’s born from a very human place. Once someone’s got a strong core of humanity, there’s hope for them – [they may] just not necessarily wake up tomorrow as Man of the Year. Klaus will continue to be a very complicated character. Much like Damon in the first couple seasons, when he feels backed up against the wall, he lashes out in very, very destructive ways. It makes it impossible to forgive. And yet, the redemption of Klaus as a character-long arc is something we always talk about.”
