If you missed the live stream of the Vampire Diaries panel at PaleyFest on Saturday night, don’t worry! We’ve got you covered with all kinds of press interviews and panel recaps, along with plenty of great photos. Remember, the panel itself will be available on HuluPlus starting on March 15th. Take note that HuluPlus is not the same as regular Hulu, it’s a subscription similar to Netflix. It does offer a free trial period, though, so you can check out the panel at no cost if you don’t mind jumping through a few hoops.
SPOILERS ARE EVERYWHERE. Warning, UK fans: There were a lot of allusions to things that have happened up through All My Children (EP315). If you don’t want any spoilers at all, you may want to step away from the computer until 1912 (EP316) airs on Thursday night. The PaleyFest audience was treated to an advanced screening of this Thursday’s new episode, so pretty much every link in our round up below has some kind of spoiler, so read at your own risk!

Don’t forget, the PaleyFest Vampire Diaries panel will be streaming live TONIGHT at 11:05 p.m. Eastern! You can use this livestream page to watch the panel as it unfolds. The panel guests will be Julie Plec, Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Candice Accola, Matt Davis, and Kat Graham. TV Guide Magazine Editor-in-Chief Debra Birnbaum will be moderating the panel.
UPDATE According to the Paley Center Twitter, the panel is actually starting at 11:05pm EST. We think there may be an episode screening in advance of the panel, which accounts for the conflicting times. Sorry about any confusion! If you’re looking for twitter coverage, our friends at @IHeartTVD will be tweeting live from the event.
UPDATE 2: If you missed the live panel, it will be available on HuluPlus on March 15th.
Matt Davis is all about teasing the fans in this week’s Vampire Diaries Bite from TV Guide. He jokes about Alaric and Elena getting together and admits that the students of Mystic Falls probably won’t be winning any prizes in history on Mr. Saltzman’s watch. Kidding aside, Alaric fans won’t want to miss this interview, as Matt says we’ll be learning more about the mysterious Mr. Saltzman in the episodes to come. Beware of spoilers!
We already told you that Hulu would be streaming PaleyFest panels starting on March 15, but good news: Panels including The Vampire Diaries will be streaming live during the event! On March 10 at 10 p.m. Eastern, head to this livestream page to watch the panel as it unfolds. The panel guests will be Julie Plec, Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Candice Accola, and Matt Davis, and the moderator will be TV Guide Magazine Editor-in-Chief Debra Birnbaum.
Unable to make it to this year’s PaleyFest? Then this will be ultra-cool news: The Paley Center for Media has teamed up with Hulu to stream this year’s PaleyFest panels, including The Vampire Diaries. From the press release, via Futon Critic:
The Paley Center for Media today announced Hulu is a partner for PaleyFest 2012. As part of the agreement with PaleyFest, beginning March 15, Hulu will stream full-length content and short form clips exclusively on-demand from nine of the festival’s panels on the free, ad-supported Hulu and the Hulu Plus subscription service at http://www.hulu.com.
So that means less than a week after The Vampire Diaries panel in Beverly Hills on March 10th, you too will be able to experience the fun of PaleyFest, via Hulu, On Demand. How cool is that?

Are you ready for the return of The Vampire Diaries this Thursday? Feel like celebrating by supporting an awesome cause and possibly getting your hands on a unique piece of TVD memorabilia?
This week’s episode, Bringing Out The Dead (EP313), was penned by Al Septien and Turi Meyer and they’ve donated a signed script to an eBay auction raising funds for Thomas Starr King Middle School, a public school based in Los Angeles. The script is signed by Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Zach Roerig, Candice Accola, Matt Davis, Kat Graham, Joseph Morgan, Persia White…and others. (Watch tomorrow night!) You can also bid on a Season 2 cast and crew hoodie!
From the school’s website:
We envision a school in which all students will be equipped with meaningful life tools, such as skills in literacy; critical thinking; basic academics; technology; the appreciation of art; democratic values of acceptance, participation and accountability, and the ability to work with a variety of people from diverse backgrounds.
Now is the time for TVD fandom to rally and do what it does best: Support a worthy cause. ALL proceeds from the auction go to helping Thomas Starr King Middle School continue its mission of providing a quality education for its students. That’s an amazing thing for the fandom to be a part of, don’t you think? Please spread the word through Twitter, Facebook, your blog – everywhere!
The CW has added two awesome new video promos that include clips from The Vampire Diaries. You’ll have to watch closely (and maybe repeat them a few times) because they move pretty fast. Think you guys can handle that? We know it’s a real hardship, but please, support the show. ;)
Update: We’ve replaced the videos with the official CW YouTube versions, for the benefit of international fans. Thanks to commenter Thirsty Like a Vamp for letting us know they’d been posted!
Here’s the first one, Turn It On.
It’ a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it. Here’s CW promo video number two, Men At Work.
Friday Night Bites is a weekly round-up for various tidbits of show and cast/crew news not quite big enough to warrant a blog post, not strictly Vampire Diaries-related, or that somehow just fell through the cracks. Please insert theme song by Explosions in the Sky here and enjoy.
