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.
The Vampire Diaries is famous for its love triangle, but lately it seems like there’s a love geometry problem every which way you look. Caroline Forbes, for example, has a lot of complications in the romance department. TVLine spoke with Candice Accola about her character’s relationships this season. Beware of spoilers!
TVLINE | Tyler said nothing happened between him and Hayley. At this point in their relationship, does Caroline trust him?
Caroline definitely trusts Tyler. It’s easier to look as an adult watching the show and be like, “What?! Come on!” But they’re very young. This is also a very young relationship. Maybe he did spend time with another woman, but it doesn’t mean exactly that he cheated on her. This is the first time that he has given her a reason not to [trust him], but he’s opening up about it and he’s talking about it.
And yet more interviews, sneaking in under the wire! Entertainment Weekly has a sadly unembeddable compilation of video interviews with Candice Accola, Nina Dobrev, and Michael Trevino. They give some interesting teases for season four, including this one about tonight’s premiere:
“One giant emotional roller coaster ride,” says star Candice Accola. “Everyone’s just at their breaking point, on edge. Caroline especially.”
There’s more than one love triangle in Mystic Falls . . . and you should head over to The Insider to see the rest of their exclusive promo picture of Caroline, Tyler, and Klaus.
And hey, ready to check in with Caroline’s other (former?) love interest? The Examiner talked to Zach Roerig about what he’d like to see for Matt in season 4.
“He’s got Elena; he’s got the number one bodyguard in the world, now that she’s a vampire, and she’ll look out for him. But I would like to see Matt play a more dominant role in the show as far as being a physical presence and whatever that is. Being aggressive and doing all of that stuff is really fun.”
Need some more things to keep you occupied this afternoon? Okay! Head over to Zap2it to read what Candice Accola and Joseph Morgan have to say about what’s coming up for their characters and whether Caroline will ever change her mind about Klaus. (Warning: The article is a little spoilery, though what we’re quoting is not.)
“I think that everyone has a dark side,” Candice says. “And I’m not just quoting Kelly Clarkson’s song… but it’s true. Especially in young relationships, you do compromise yourself, and you do compromise your thoughts and your morals and your beliefs, and not just pertaining to young relationships, but I think that’s more common in young relationships. I don’t know if I necessarily see Klaus compromising too much… I think there’s definitely a possibility that we could see Caroline compromise herself for a relationship.”

TV Guide has another cast interview to share, this time with Candice Accola. Candice talks Caroline’s “roller coaster ride of emotions,” Tyler, Klaus, and sexy times.
The CW has started filtering out these AWESOME new Season 4 promo pics and we’re going to start with Caroline, Tyler, and Klaus. Seriously, the detail on these portraits – we’re going to be analyzing them for hours. Can’t wait to see the rest of the set! The Vampire Diaries returns this Thursday, October 11th, 8/7c on the CW. Click each image to view a larger version in the Gallery. What do you think? Does this hold up to last year’s fruit portraits?
Loose n’ dirty translation of the Latin on each portrait, Klaus – Blood is power, Caroline – Love is sacrifice, Tyler – Love has/holds me. (This could be in the sense of “love carries me” or “love possesses me” . . . interesting.)
Brace yourselves, everybody! TV Guide has revealed a brand new cold open for The Vampire Diaries Season 4, one that makes a big change from the style we’ve seen in previous seasons, it takes us back to the earliest days of the show.
In our exclusive video below, Elena (Nina Dobrev), Damon (Ian Somerhalder), Stefan (Paul Wesley), Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen), Caroline (Candice Accola), Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) all lend their voices to the narration that will kick off the upcoming fourth season. A variation of this will be used in each episode to catch viewers up on major plot points that have happened thus far.
