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.”
Also find out what the future holds for Tyler after his family tragedy, Jeremy with his new “career,” and more.
Ready for O Come, All Ye Faithful (EP409) tonight? Everyone has opinions on the latest turn of events in the Damon and Elena relationship and TV Guide Magazine caught up with Ian Somerhalder to discuss what the sire bond means to the couple’s fledgling romance and the steps they’ll each take to ensure what Elena is experiencing is the real deal:
TV Guide Magazine: Will it be good for the show if Elena and Damon stay together for a while?
Somerhalder: I think it’s good for the story: If Elena is with Damon, this sire bond is always an issue; plus, his brother’s really angry. So until both of them know if it’s true love, they’ve decided they’re not going to sleep together again. There will be more romance and less sex. Damon wants to do the right thing, but losing Elena is not an option. It’s a tough predicament for him.

More cast tidbits about tonight’s all-new (and fist ever holiday) episode of The Vampire Diaries, this time with Candice Accola. First up, she chats with IGN about Caroline’s perspectives on Klaus and Damon:
IGN: For quite awhile now with Klaus, there’s been the fact that he’s got this infatuation with Caroline. Might this play into these new plans?
Accola: Caroline is very well aware that she is able to use herself as — one my lines that I really loved is when Caroline goes, “Why do I always have to be Klaus bait?” And it’s true! It’s funny. Klaus is just enchanted with her. He also knows she’s playing him, but I think he likes that she’s playing him because he’s still a step ahead of her. But it gives him attention and a game that I think a character like him really wants. She’s definitely involved, but she still has an arm’s length between them. She’s definitely not on his side.
And over at MTV’s Hollywood Crush, Candice adds her thoughts on the sire bond and tonight’s much-rumored death:
Candice pointed out that flashbacks have provided a nice opportunity for some characters to return, but not everybody gets to come back for a period episode or a ghostly vision. “Of course, there’s always the potential that when a character leaves, that’s [really] it. The writers have created a world where they can do whatever they want and we have all known it from day one. Our first meeting in Atlanta started off with: ‘This is a vampire show. People will die.’ This is what we got into. It’s just the reality of the show that we’re on.”
To whet your appetite for Thursday’s midseason finale, O Come, All Ye Faithful (EP409), E!Online has an exclusive webclip featuring Klaus and Caroline. Enjoy!
This week’s installment of TV Guide’s Vampire Diaries Bite focuses on the Tyler’s mission to take down Klaus and whether Caroline will support the means used to accomplish that end. Candice Accola chimes in on whether Caroline has Tyler’s back:
E!Online caught up with Julie Plec to talk Stefan, Damon, Elena and sire bond:
Is there any real hope for Damon and Elena as a legit couple?
The sire bond issue will force them each to dig deep into their feelings towards each other as they try to define and defend them. This could either make them stronger than ever or tear them apart.
We trust our American friends have had a marvelous Thanksgiving, yes? So how about sinking your teeth into another goodie this holiday weekend: A webclip from next week’s new episode, My Brother’s Keeper (EP407). Klaus and Caroline are having a perfectly polite conversation and we’re 99.9% positive that Klaus pulls out the hybrid puppy eyes. Watch and you’ll see what we mean.
Another Thursday, another new episode of The Vampire Diaries, and another round of fantastic interviews with Candice Accola. First up, Candice talks “Klaus, Miss Mystic Falls, and a Winter Wonderland” with Entertainment Weekly:
Caroline has definitely, in the past, used Klaus’ feelings toward her to distract him so that they can execute their plan and try to get ahead and beat Klaus at his own game. So we’ve seen this before, and we will definitely see it again. Caroline knows the kind of hold that she has over Klaus. I don’t think that she necessarily trusts fully that he will never just switch on a dime — I don’t think anyone can.
And Zap2It brings up the chemistry between Caroline and Stefan (alongside a lot of other topics):
I think Caroline’s biggest struggle is parallel to Stefan’s biggest struggle. This is a season of Caroline just really wanting to do the right thing, and to do the right thing by the people that she cares about. She recognizes what the right thing is, and she can’t ignore it. She wants to do the right thing. It coincides with Stefan, who just wants so hard to do the right thing and to have Elena grow and experience being a vampire in a perfect, safe, right way. He’s almost re-doing the way that he became a vampire through Elena. He’s getting another chance, and he wants things to go a certain way, even if it’s not necessarily the best thing for her, he wants it to be right.
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.
