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.”

It’s time for the long-awaited, final video in CW’s cast interview series. Here’s Ian Somerhalder!
Need something to distract you until tomorrow night’s premiere? Paul Wesley is over at Young Hollywood playing a fun Vampire or Werewolf? game – and, oh yeah, talking about season four:
And over at Entertainment Weekly, Ian Somerhalder talks about the love triangle and how Damon will deal with Elena’s transition:
“There is some stuff that is going to come up this season that I think fans will get a little bit of joy out of,” said Ian Somerhalder, who explained that the love triangle still has a ways to go. “There is a scene [where] Damon pushes [Elena's] buttons a little bit and kind of starts undressing in front of her [and] that throws her for a loop. It was pretty cute.”
Meanwhile, at Hollywood Life, Torrey DeVitto talks about what’s coming up for Meredith:
“I think you’ll see a bond grow between Damon and Meredith. It’s cool because he’s this erratic character, and she really holds her ground with him and with all the other characters. She’s strong-minded and doesn’t put up with his bulls**t. So deep down, whether he acknowledges it or not, he admires that about her. That’s how their friendship begins, really.”
New interviews and teases are springing up right and left! Here are a few things to tide you over until tomorrow night’s season premiere, including TV Line’s exclusive first look at the new hunter in town.

TV Guide sits down with Ian Somerhalder to talk the return of Damon’s “GFY” attitude, Salvatore philosophies on Elena’s vampire transition, and Elena’s “dumb” decision at the end of The Departed.
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.
It’s going to be a busy week, so here’s the next batch of interviews for your enjoyment. First up, Julie Plec previews Season 4′s return over at The Hollywood Reporter.
THR: Now that Elena’s exploring her new state of being as a vampire, will this force her to open her mind up?
Plec: Elena becoming a vampire, in a way, is an awakening of a person who is about to go through a lot of changes – some for the better and some for the worse, some for the darker and some for the lighter. In all that, she is going to evolve as a person and her relationships are going to evolve accordingly. I can’t say much beyond that other than that it’s a journey for her of an adolescent growing up to a really tragic adulthood. We change a lot in those years and we change what we want out of life; it’s a constant evolution.
TV Guide sits down with Nina Dobrev to talk vampire!Elena, Stefan and Damon, and Season 4 surprises.
Over at Entertainment Weekly, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder talk about vampire sex. And that’s all we need to say, right?
Zach Roerig chats with MTV’s Hollywood Crush about the State of the Donovan in Season 4 and how last season’s events will affect Matt’s relationship with Elena. (Also, book fans, there’s a nice spoilery gimme in that article that might interest you.)
“Damon definitely blames Matt and doesn’t think that Matt deserves to live,” Zach explained. “Of course Damon, being the rage-filled-fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants kind of guy, comes at Matt. But thankfully Elena is there to defend him.
“Both Salvatore brothers make it clear to Matt that he needs to earn his survival,” he added.
And, finally, the Associated Press sat down with Daniel Gillies to talk Elijah, Elena, and Season 4.
I know many of you have been waiting for this one, so here you go! The latest in CW’s series of pre-season four cast interviews is with Nina Dobrev. Enjoy!
