We may have to wait a few weeks for another new episode, but Joseph Morgan gave TV Guide a little preview of coming attractions:
“In the episodes to come after break, there’s a certain amount of [Klaus] sitting with his feet up, looking at the carnage as it unfolds before him,” Morgan tells TVGuide.com. “He’s pulling the puppet strings and then letting them go to see what happens.”
And will the other characters ever get around to, you know, trying to kill him?
“Our heroes are at odds with each other. If they could unite themselves like they did at the end of Season 3, maybe they would have a chance [at killing Klaus], but as long as he can keep manipulating and planting doubt in their minds, they won’t be able to come together and defeat him,” Morgan says. “Everyone has forgotten that they put Klaus down, but Klaus hasn’t forgotten. It’s like lining up chess pieces on a board — everyone is playing against each other and everyone’s arguing!”

Ready for O Come, All Ye Faithful (EP409) tonight? Everyone has opinions on the latest turn of events in the Damon and Elena relationship and TV Guide Magazine caught up with Ian Somerhalder to discuss what the sire bond means to the couple’s fledgling romance and the steps they’ll each take to ensure what Elena is experiencing is the real deal:
TV Guide Magazine: Will it be good for the show if Elena and Damon stay together for a while?
Somerhalder: I think it’s good for the story: If Elena is with Damon, this sire bond is always an issue; plus, his brother’s really angry. So until both of them know if it’s true love, they’ve decided they’re not going to sleep together again. There will be more romance and less sex. Damon wants to do the right thing, but losing Elena is not an option. It’s a tough predicament for him.

We got Joseph Morgan‘s take on the Klaus/Tyler situation in our last post, so it’s time to hear from Michael Trevino. On this week’s TV Guide Vampire Diaries Bite, he talks about why the time is right for Tyler to put his plan in motion in tonight’s mid-season finale, O Come, All Ye Faithful (EP409). There are a few more quotes from Joseph Morgan in the article as well, so make sure you click over!
And when you’re done with that, head over to Entertainment Tonight Online for an exclusive behind the scenes photo of a certain dramatic scene on dock . . . Well, that doesn’t bode well.
Everyone’s been caught up in the sire storyline, but in tonight’s mid-season finale, O Come, All Ye Faithful (EP409), there’s plenty of other drama going on as well – and much of it involves Klaus. TVLine recently caught up with Joseph Morgan to talk about Klaus’s take on Caroline, Tyler, and the way everyone is trying to play him this season. But does he have mixed feelings about Tyler’s power grab?
TVLINE | Is there a part of Klaus that’s a little proud of Tyler despite the fact that he’s trying to take him down? Here’s this hybrid he created and raised, so to speak, who’s now grown up and is taking power.
That’s a really interesting question. I have not been asked that before. I think possibly, yes. I would like to think so. It’s a bold move and one that Klaus might make himself in that situation. I would like to think there is, but that doesn’t mean he’ll go any easier on Tyler when he does find out. But I like that idea very much!
And over at Zap2it, Joseph talks about how he enjoys the way his character has become increasingly complex:
“I do like it, because it’s something different,” he says. “Working with Candice [Accola] is wonderful, obviously, and I love exploring the great range that the writers have given Klaus this season. Last year, when they brought in Rebekah and the family, I was very pleased because it gave us a chance to see a new side of Klaus, to see the way he is with people he cares about, people he’s close to. This is like that in that with a love interest, it’s a whole new element to him to explore.”
To whet your appetite for Thursday’s midseason finale, O Come, All Ye Faithful (EP409), E!Online has an exclusive webclip featuring Klaus and Caroline. Enjoy!
This week’s installment of TV Guide’s Vampire Diaries Bite focuses on the Tyler’s mission to take down Klaus and whether Caroline will support the means used to accomplish that end. Candice Accola chimes in on whether Caroline has Tyler’s back:
E!Online caught up with Julie Plec to talk Stefan, Damon, Elena and sire bond:
Is there any real hope for Damon and Elena as a legit couple?
The sire bond issue will force them each to dig deep into their feelings towards each other as they try to define and defend them. This could either make them stronger than ever or tear them apart.
We trust our American friends have had a marvelous Thanksgiving, yes? So how about sinking your teeth into another goodie this holiday weekend: A webclip from next week’s new episode, My Brother’s Keeper (EP407). Klaus and Caroline are having a perfectly polite conversation and we’re 99.9% positive that Klaus pulls out the hybrid puppy eyes. Watch and you’ll see what we mean.
Another Thursday, another new episode of The Vampire Diaries, and another round of fantastic interviews with Candice Accola. First up, Candice talks “Klaus, Miss Mystic Falls, and a Winter Wonderland” with Entertainment Weekly:
Caroline has definitely, in the past, used Klaus’ feelings toward her to distract him so that they can execute their plan and try to get ahead and beat Klaus at his own game. So we’ve seen this before, and we will definitely see it again. Caroline knows the kind of hold that she has over Klaus. I don’t think that she necessarily trusts fully that he will never just switch on a dime — I don’t think anyone can.
And Zap2It brings up the chemistry between Caroline and Stefan (alongside a lot of other topics):
I think Caroline’s biggest struggle is parallel to Stefan’s biggest struggle. This is a season of Caroline just really wanting to do the right thing, and to do the right thing by the people that she cares about. She recognizes what the right thing is, and she can’t ignore it. She wants to do the right thing. It coincides with Stefan, who just wants so hard to do the right thing and to have Elena grow and experience being a vampire in a perfect, safe, right way. He’s almost re-doing the way that he became a vampire through Elena. He’s getting another chance, and he wants things to go a certain way, even if it’s not necessarily the best thing for her, he wants it to be right.
New webclip for We All Go A Little Mad Sometimes (EP406). Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley and Joseph Morgan appear in this one, enjoy!
TV Guide sits down with Joseph Morgan to discuss what the arrival of big bad vampire hunter Connor (Todd Williams, introduced in last night’s episode) means for Klaus and whether the Original sibling showdown that happened between Klaus and Rebekah in the premiere will have long term repercussions.
“Season 4 will … see that bond tested more than it’s ever been,” Morgan told us on the Atlanta set of the CW series. “He goes a little further than he’s ever gone and [as usual] Klaus likes to ruin everything for himself and push people away.”
