Are we being spoiled by the CW, or just mercilessly taunted with new episodes only a few days away? Either way, TVGuide.com has a second webclip from The Vampire Diaries Season 5 premiere, I Know What You Did Last Summer, with Bonnie and Jeremy somewhat heartbreakingly keeping up Bonnie’s charade.
TV Fanatic caught up with Steven R. McQueen and Charles Michael Davis – on the sets of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals respectively – and they each had plenty to say about the impending seasons of their shows. First up, McQueen talks Jeremy’s unusual circumstances:
In whose home will the character be residing? What will be his reaction to Damon dating Elena? How will he deal with a ghost of a girlfriend?
What kind of relationship does Marcel have with Klaus? What sort of challenges lie ahead for these supernatural powers? Does the character share a history with Rebekah? And what about those late-night dance parties on set?!?
Have you wondered how Jeremy’s hunter’s mark was created? There’s a bonus feature about just that on The Vampire Diaries season four DVD set, and thanks to ETonline and Warner Bros. Home Video, we can see it now. The DVDs will be released in the U.S. tomorrow, September third.
Ready for your first look at the season five premiere of The Vampire Diaries, entitled I Know What You Did Last Summer? Head over to Entertainment Tonight Online for nine exclusive stills from the episode! We get a look at Elena and Caroline settling into college life, as well as some glimpses of Bonnie and Jeremy! I Know What You Did Last Summer (EP501) will air on Thursday, October 3 at 8/7c, followed by the series premiere of The Originals.
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).
Kat Graham has done several interviews in advance of tonight’s new episode, Catch Me If You Can (EP411). First, at ETonline, Kat talks a bit about the introduction of Bonnie’s father but then gets into her character’s overall arc:
So much crazy Bonnie stuff is coming up. I’m excited that, if Bonnie makes any turn as to who she is and what she’s about, I’m excited to know that a lot of fans will come with her. I’m excited for them to grow with Bonnie and excited for them to see what Bonnie can do. For so long, this was a character who was never at her full power. She was always losing it and then getting some of it back … she’s struggled with finding herself as a witch and finding herself in her power.
And at Hollywood Life, Kat discusses Bonnie and Jeremy:
I think their relationship is still healing, and Bonnie’s starting to trust him again. She’s going to need someone more than ever, a partner in crime. I can also say her love was never lost for him. She never really got over it.

TVLine has some more from their talk with Julie Plec about the Salvatores, Klaus, Caroline & Tyler, and more coming up in the second half of season four. This passage about Klaus is intriguing:
“The beauty of Klaus, much like Damon, is that his horrible misdeeds are all born out of a place of a complete lack of trust and faith as a result of being repeatedly betrayed and rejected in his life. I’m not saying I excuse his horrific behavior, but it’s born from a very human place. Once someone’s got a strong core of humanity, there’s hope for them – [they may] just not necessarily wake up tomorrow as Man of the Year. Klaus will continue to be a very complicated character. Much like Damon in the first couple seasons, when he feels backed up against the wall, he lashes out in very, very destructive ways. It makes it impossible to forgive. And yet, the redemption of Klaus as a character-long arc is something we always talk about.”
Also find out what the future holds for Tyler after his family tragedy, Jeremy with his new “career,” and more.
