Friday Night Bites is a weekly round-up for various tidbits of show and cast/crew news not quite big enough to warrant a blog post, not strictly Vampire Diaries-related, or that somehow just fell through the cracks. Please insert theme song by Explosions in the Sky here and enjoy.

The CW has released a web clip for next week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, The Ties That Bind (EP312), airing January 19th. It features Damon, Elena, Bonnie, and research! Beware of spoilers through Our Town (EP311).
On Thursday, January 12, 2012, Joseph Morgan represented The Vampire Diaries at the 2012 Winter Television Critics Association, where he joined Supernatural‘s Jared Padalecki, Nikita‘s Shane West, Hart of Dixie‘s Wilson Bethel, and Gossip Girl‘s Ed Westwick on the Bad-Ass Boys of the CW panel. We live-RTed many of the critics in attendance and we’re collecting some of the commentary here. (And be jealous of the nifty planners the CW handed our, featuring network characters/quotes.)
