Well, here’s a delightful treat for your Friday afternoon. The CW has shared a nice moment of levity from next week’s episode, The Five (EP404).
Nina Dobrev called in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest this morning to talk about what’s coming up for Elena this season. Take a listen!
This week’s TV Guide Vampire Diaries Bite is good news for fans of Damon’s reckless side, looks like we’ll be seeing some more of it soon, and that it will be a big draw for Elena’s own wild side. Hear what Julie Plec has to say about it in the clip below.
Speaking of reckless, Zach Roerig answers questions from Celebuzz about Matt Donovan’s guilt issues and what might be in store for him this season.
Celebuzz: Matt is obviously feeling a lot of guilt about Elena’s sacrifice for him. How is that going to continue to impact his role this season?
Zach Roerig: Feeling that guilt is going to make him is question why he is alive. I just think both Salvatore brothers are going to encourage Matt in different ways to kind of put up or shut up. Matt’s involvement is stepped up in everything.
Zach Roerig isn’t the only one who has to step up this season, Nina Dobrev has a whole new challenge as she takes on Elena’s new reality. The TV Chick spoke with the actress about all the changes Elena is going through this season.
What are you looking forward to this season for your character?
To go on the journey with her and sort of see how she deals with things, and it’s sad though. She never wanted this at all and now she has no choice. Not just for today, but forever. And she’s stuck with this lifestyle, but who knows. Everything happens for a reason, and maybe one day she’ll be really thankful and really happy that she gets to live through different eras and different times. Maybe she will leave all these boys behind and try to find a cure for cancer or make some good of it.
Memorial (EP402) airs in the U.S. in just two days, and the CW has given us another sneak peek!
Ready for a sneak peek of Thursday’s upcoming episode, Memorial (EP402)?
We’re all still reeling from last night’s premiere, Growing Pains (EP401), but that doesn’t mean the interviews, teasers, and general flood of coverage has stopped. So how about some morning reading to answer some questions – and, undoubtedly, create plenty of new questions? Fair warning: You should assume that these are all spoilery through last night’s episode, and there are some hints about the rest of the season as well. Enjoy, and hit the comments with your theories about what’s going on!

And yet more interviews, sneaking in under the wire! Entertainment Weekly has a sadly unembeddable compilation of video interviews with Candice Accola, Nina Dobrev, and Michael Trevino. They give some interesting teases for season four, including this one about tonight’s premiere:
“One giant emotional roller coaster ride,” says star Candice Accola. “Everyone’s just at their breaking point, on edge. Caroline especially.”
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.”

The countdown to the Season 4 premiere continues! The CW has released Elena’s Season 4 portrait. “TENETUR PER SANGUINEM” – bound by blood. Check out the previously released portraits: Stefan, Jeremy, Matt, Bonnie, Rebekah & Elijah, and Klaus, Caroline & Tyler.
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!
