ON SEASON FINALES AND SPOILERS: And this is just a reminder that as we head towards the season finale, the blog becomes stricter on spoilers for future episodes.

Please try to be careful with blog comments as we have many readers who very much would like to remain surprised about future events.
As we mentioned last week, Kat Graham was a presenter at Logo’s NewNowNext Awards on Thursday night, and Logo aired the big show tonight. (You’re up soon, West coast!) Oh, and remember that NNN award Vampire-Diaries.net was nominated for, the Superfan Site Award? In rather surprising and super-humbling news, we won! You crazy people voted your hearts out for us and we actually won! How cool is that? We really can’t thank you enough, here or on Twitter.
You can watch the entire awards show on LOGO’s website. Kat accepts the Superfan Site Award on our behalf at about 1 hour and 30 seconds into the show.
We have another Joseph Morgan interview for you before tonight’s episode. This time, he talks to The Hollywood Reporter about how hard it is to kill those pesky Originals, as well as Klaus’s Tyler problem and who his “first call” might be. If you’re caught up through last week’s episode, click over for the particulars. Otherwise, enjoy this more general but still intriguing tidbit:
“First of all, you’ve got to remember that these guys are the original vampires; they’re the strongest vampires to walk the planet. They’re going to be incredibly hard to kill and it’s going to require absolute teamwork from our ‘heroes.’ They’ll do anything and Klaus, he’ll do anything he can to stay alive. He has no qualms about letting others suffer so that he can survive or so his family can survive.”
And how about Klaus’s motivations at the end of the season?
“He’s wanted dead by the majority of Mystic Falls by now so the finale for Klaus, a lot of it is going to be about trying to survive. . . . If things start getting too hot, it’s going to be about making his escape intact — and I would imagine he’s going to want Elena and Rebekah with him.”
Ahead of tonight’s The Murder of One (EP318), Joseph Morgan has been doing an interesting set of interviews. Warning: These all contain spoilers through last week’s Break on Through (EP317)! First, at TVLine, he talked about Klaus and sibling relationships, romance – and bromance:
“Stefan is the biggest thorn in Klaus’ side, because if it comes to it, [Klaus] will kill Damon. … So I really think that there’s a little bit of him that still thinks his friend might be coming back. He’s still not willing to give up on The Ripper. That’s the biggest weakness that he has at the moment. He doesn’t believe who Stefan is now is the real him. He believes the real him was him back in the ’20s, and he still really wants his friend back. He learned so much from Stefan in the ’20s, even though he was a great deal older than him. It’s a bromance I think he misses as well.”
And over at TV Guide, he sheds some light on new Original mythology:
“We are going to learn a very interesting fact about the Originals’ mythology and the bloodlines of vampires,” Morgan says. “It’s not another loophole to how the Originals can’t be killed, [but] it’s something which has the opposite effect and it raises the threat level right up.”
Meanwhile, at Zap2it, he explicates Klaus’s feelings about a certain someone. (Remember: Spoilers through current episodes!)
“I’ll tell you that he’s definitely still interested,” Morgan says emphatically. “In the instant that he’s hurt, he’ll burn all the pictures; he’s impulsive. But a thousand years on the planet have given him a certain degree of patience, so I think he’ll come around. I don’t want to call it love, but he’s absolutely infatuated with her. As far as I know, his motives are genuine with Caroline, and it’s not part of some greater scheme or some greater manipulation. He does want to show her the world. He’s not ready to give up yet.”
Robert Ri’chard‘s interview focuses on the Jamie and Bonnie dynamic, and whether or not we’ll be seeing those two characters interacting in the future. The actor addresses an issue that many fans have been discussing: whether or not Jamie’s position as Abby’s surrogate son in some way makes him a relative of Bonnie’s.
“They made it clear I’m not Bonnie’s brother,” the actor said. “I’m not family to her, but I’m gonna play an important, personal role in her life.”
As for Sage, Cassidy Freeman gives a little insight into the troublesome redhead’s relationship with the Originals, and hints that things may not be all smooth sailing and shower shenanigans in the next episode.
“Sage has a big surprise coming,” the actress teased of events ahead on “The Murder of One.” “And it’s definitely life-changing.”
Nina Dobrev recently did a video chat with awards site GoldDerby about a wide range of topics, including passionate fans, the allure of vampire, and how it felt to be the first write-in winner at the People’s Choice Awards. The video quality isn’t great at times, but bear with it: The interview is interesting and worth a watch!
IGN caught up with the cast on the PaleyFest red carpet and Matt Davis, Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, Candice Accola, Kat Graham, and Paul Wesley all throw in their two cents about why guys should be watching The Vampire Diaries. Click here or the image below to watch the (quite funny) video!
Continuing her press rounds, Candice Accola chatted with the Huffington Post about Tyler, Klaus, Stefan and more, but also dropped this tidbit about tonight’s episode, Break On Through:
“Caroline and Alaric really haven’t had that many scenes together, and the scenes that they do have together have always been within a plan, as they both help out in the bigger scheme of things,” Accola told HuffPost TV. “We’ll finally see them talk one-on-one at this point, and we’ll see if that goes well or if it doesn’t.”
Over at The Hollywood Reporter, Candice Accola shed some light on Caroline’s relationships and interactions with Tyler, Klaus, and Stefan, as well as what’s coming up in the latter part of the season in general. On the Caroline/Stefan dynamic:
“I really didn’t expect there to be a funny cadence between those characters’ conversations. It fit perfectly into it, especially at that time with Stefan showing her the ropes because Caroline is the perky “play with me play with me” pesky cheerleader and Stefan is more brooding, serious and so they played well together. I think this season there’s been other things to focus on and Caroline’s taken over Stefan’s place in the sense of showing people who are new in their supernatural ability, how to cope with it. There has been no intention to not have Caroline and Stefan be in scenes together, it’s just there’s been so many plot points and story lines going on right now. They’re still there. I’m sure that they’ll eventually have scenes together again.”
