SPOILERS ALERT! It’s almost impossible to post anything about last night’s episode -O Come All Ye Faithful (EP409)- without spoiling it. If you haven’t seen it yet, use extreme caution when reading anything Vampire Diaries related today! The mid-season finale was especially rough on Tyler Lockwood and left Vampire Diaries fans with lots of questions. TV Guide went to the source to get some answers, they spoke with Julie Plec, who answers questions about specific details from last night’s episode and reflects back on the first half of season four.
Is Tyler now screwed since Klaus found out he was trying to kill him?
Plec: Tyler has definitely been marked by Klaus, and that’s something that will play out over the next few episodes — the repercussions of Tyler’s move against Klaus.
TVLine also has an interview with Julie, and again, spoilers everywhere.
TVLINE | We didn’t actually see Tyler react to the death. How will he deal with it?
[When] the next episode picks up, a little bit of time has happened, and we’ll see that Tyler’s not handling it altogether too well. He’s keeping to himself, refusing to show his emotions and stewing in his own grief and anger, which is making it difficult to help him. It’s sad for Caroline, who just wants to be there 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.”
Back to back webclips, whee! It’s like it’s Christmas . . . oh, wait. Here’s a bit more of O Come, All Ye Faithful (EP409) for you, from the CW.
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!
Here’s a little more of next week’s midseason finale, O Come, All Ye Faithful (EP409), and hey look, there’s snow! Festive!
Previously on The Vampire Diaries, awkward family reunions were taken to an entirely new level. The Heisler was flowing, the band was rockin’ and even that random bus from the high school got an upgrade (because c’mon, even Klaus likes a sparkly bus). And if you can’t quite remember how that all went down, no problem – we’ve got plenty of recaps to refresh your memory.
