We have another clip from Thursday’s episode of the Vampire Diaries, Because the Night (EP417), featuring Damon, Elena and Rebekah enjoying a performance by the band Dead Sara! Enjoy!
Zap2it has two new (video!) interviews up, one with Candice Accola and one with Paul Wesley. Spoilers for Stand By Me (EP415).
In this first interview, Candice Accola talks about what it’s like when a cast member departs for a while, how Caroline is dealing with the new Elena situation and the departure of Tyler.
Paul Wesley talks about Elena and Stefan, but he also speaks a little bit about Stefan’s relationship with Rebekah and his thoughts on The Originals spinoff.
Intrigued by Elena’s new look? Entertainment Weekly has an interview with TVD costume designer Leigh Leverett to talk about the style switch up. Again, beware of spoilers if you aren’t up to date on the episodes.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How would you describe the “no-humanity” version of Elena’s wardrobe? What kind of transformation can fans expect?
LEIGH LEVERETT: It’s more like she just can go in anywhere and get whatever she wants. She can go into any boutique and compel anyone to give her anything as opposed to trying to look like Elena. Before it was still kind of Elena being Elena even though she was a vampire. Now it’s like she can just see something that she wants, and she can just go get it.
B-E AGGRESSIVE, right, Elena? Check out another clip from tomorrow night’s brand-new episode of The Vampire Diaries, Bring It On (EP416).
ETOnline interviewed Ian Somerhalder this morning about the recent happenings in Mystic Falls and, just in case you thought everything might be puppies and rainbows… Oh, who are we kidding? No one who watches this show ever thinks that. And Ian more or less confirms that the road is still rocky.
ETonline: It’s also got to be exciting as an actor that TVD allows you to play your character at various points in their life. We’ve seen Damon throughout the decades, and next week shows him circa 1970.
Somerhalder: Yeah, you hit the nail on the head. Our artisans and production design team went in and not only re-built CBGB’s but recreated the feeling of the ’70s [in Because the Night, airing March 21]. It’s so cool because you get to experience so many times in [Damon's] life. Now mind you, because there were so many decades, I think he evolved slower than most. I also love that because we get to go back and romanticize the social happenings of that time, we’re really reminded of The United States’ deep history and what Damon lived through is just a drop in the bucket compared to the other characters, who can go back thousands of years.
READ THE ENTIRE INTERVIEW AT ETONLINE. CAUTION: SPOILERS THROUGH STAND BY ME (EP415)!

TV Guide has more from their post-mortem interview with Julie Plec. Warning: If you haven’t watched through Stand By Me (EP415), best avoid some major spoilers. And, in case you missed it yesterday, check out our EP415 post-mortem round-up.
The second half the season will be more grounded in high school. What can we expect?
Plec: We just started shooting the prom episode, which is episode 19 and graduation is going to be the finale. We’ll get to end the season with all of those great questions of who’s going to be where, who’s going to be with who, who’s going to do what.
In other news, Futon Critic is reporting that the CW has nailed down a season finale date for The Vampire Diaries: Thursday, May 16th.
Entertainment Tonight talked to Nina Dobrev about That Thing That Happened and how it will affect Elena going forward. We don’t want to spoil any non-U.S. fans who haven’t seen Down the Rabbit Hole (EP414) yet, so here’s just a bit of a quote. You can read the rest at ETonline.
ETonline: This season has been a thrill from the start. What’s your feeling about season four?
Nina Dobrev: It’s been really cool, especially because you always hear actors say doing a TV show for X amount of years can be boring and repetitive, but over the last four years, Elena has been changing and evolving and growing so much. Julie [Plec, executive producer] has done such an incredible job of keeping it fresh and exciting and making me excited to come to work every day.
Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive new webclip from Stand By Me (EP415). Spoiler alert for last week’s episode, so only watch if you’ve already seen Down The Rabbit Hole (EP414).
It’s almost Thursday! Here’s another peek from Down the Rabbit Hole (EP414).
