Entertainment Weekly has three different videos to help get you ready for tonight’s episode. Click over to see what Ian Somerhalder, Michael Trevino, Candice Accola, Steven R. McQueen, and Nina Dobrev have to say about My Brother’s Keeper (EP407). Here’s Ian on Damon and Elena at the Miss Mystic Falls dance:
“Remember, in the first season they had this dance where you could feel, really for the first time, that cool chemical attraction that they had,” Somerhalder said. “Seeing this again … and seeing both of them recognizing it and sort of internalizing it, it’s cool.”
Decade dance time! The Vampire Diaries goes back to the 1920s tonight with Do Not Go Gentle (EP320), which airs tonight on the CW at 8/7c. Go find your flapper dress and practice the Charleston! And if you need a way to kill time until the show, might we suggest taking a look at the poem by Dylan Thomas that inspired tonight’s title? That should give you plenty of fodder for speculation.
Alert for Chicago-area fans: If you watch the show on WGN-TV, it will not be airing tonight – it’s being pre-empted for a baseball game. Do Not Go Gentle (EP320) will air on WGN-TV on Sunday, April 29 at 7 p.m. Thanks to Kim for letting us know!

Candice Accola has said that tomorrow night’s Do Not Go Gentle (EP320) is one of her favorite episodes, and in a new video interview at Give Me My Remote, she talks about why:
“We get to prove as actors that none of us are capable of dancing and saying our lines at the same time. . . . But it’s fun to see everyone all dressed up and come together.”
She also explains why she’s loved watching Caroline grow as a character.
And if you’d like to see a spoilery image from a flashback in the season finale, The Departed (EP322), head over to TVLine. We mean it, though: There are spoilers! Proceed at your own risk!
Candice Accola and Joseph Morgan spoke with TVLine about what’s coming up for the complicated dynamics between their characters – especially given a certain upcoming reunion. (Warning: Spoilers through current episodes!) But is Caroline starting to soften toward Klaus? Nope.
“She’s not interested at all,” Accola maintains. “She can completely see that he’s not a good person and that he’s selfish and that he’s done nothing but come in and ruin the lives of the people that she’s loved.”
But it sounds like Klaus isn’t giving up any time soon:
Klaus will use the worldliness that comes with his Euro sound to try and sweep Caroline off her feet. Because from where he stands, “She deserves to see more of the world and to witness more of the culture and to make a bigger impact in the world, make bigger waves,” argues the Original’s portrayer, Joseph Morgan.
There’s no new episode tonight, but might we distract you with ponies, dancing, and pretty dresses instead? Enjoy an encore presentation of Dangerous Liaisons (EP314) tonight on the CW at 8/7c. New episodes of The Vampire Diaries will return on Thursday, April 19 with Heart of Darkness (EP319).

The CW has released the official synopsis for Vampire Diaries: Do Not Go Gentle (EP320), airing Thursday, April 26th. Highlight for spoilers:
WHAT THE WORLD HAS TO OFFER — Alaric (Matt Davis) finds an unexpected ally to guide him on his dangerous new path, while Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Meredith (guest star Torrey Devitto) try to figure out what their next move should be. At the school’s 1920s Decade Dance, Bonnie (Kat Graham) asks Jamie (guest star Robert Ri’chard) to go with her and, at Caroline’s (Candice Accola) suggestion, Elena (Nina Dobrev) asks Stefan (Paul Wesley) to be her date. Caroline is pleasantly surprised when Tyler (Michael Trevino) shows up at the dance determined to sweep her off her feet, but Klaus (Joseph Morgan) does his best to come between them. The dance takes a deadly turn when Damon and Stefan realize they need the help of Matt (Zach Roerig), Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) and especially Bonnie to undo a spell that could prove devastating for everyone.
The episode was directed by Josh Butler and written by Michael Narducci.

SOME ENCHANTED EVENING — Elena is surprised to receive an invitation to a formal ball, and when Damon and Stefan hear the party is being hosted at Klaus’s newly renovated mansion, they both insist on attending the event with her. Caroline and Matt also receive invitations to the ball from unexpected admirers. At the elegant party, Elena learns of a horrifying plan that could lead to numerous deaths and she must decide who she can trust with her new information. Caroline discovers a side of Klaus no one would have suspected. Finally, after an evening of violence and dashed hopes, Damon finds a new way to cope.
