ET Online caught up with Steven R. McQueen to talk about the upcoming season of The Vampire Diaries, particularly how Jeremy will deal with his return from death, his guilt about Bonnie, his different relationship dynamic with Damon, and how he’ll be dealing with Katherine. (Remember: She’s responsible for getting him killed.)
ETonline: If Jeremy is feeling guilty for Bonnie’s death, how angry is he with Katherine for triggering this series of events?
McQueen: I have some scenes coming up with Katherine. I can’t say what happens, but imagine things from her perspective: she’s this vampire that’s hundreds of years old, insanely strong, insanely fast, who can really get away with doing these sh*tty things because there were no consequences. Now we see her, at the beginning of this season, at a place of weakness: she’s human, she’s vulnerable and she’s pissed off.
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.

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.
