In this week’s TV Guide Vampire Diaries Bite, Candice Accola tells us a little bit about where Caroline stands on all this Klaus and Tyler stuff. Spoiler alert applies!
Candice also gives a little insight into what’s going on with Caroline and Bonnie, and the challenge they’re currently facing.
TVLine talked to Candice Accola about what’s coming up for Caroline in tonight’s big episode and beyond. On how Caroline will deal with the host of tonight’s formal ball:
“Caroline is definitely not viewing Klaus as the nice guy. She’s not like, “Ooh! He’s got an edge!” She knows he’s an extreme, evil killer. But at the same time, Caroline recognizes and learns from even just being around Katherine that… you can’t back down. You can’t show fear. You can’t allow yourself to be backed into a corner. You have to stand up and be strong.”
And where’s Tyler, anyway?
“He has gone to work on himself [and] to learn how he can not fall prey to [having been] sired so he can take control back over his life. It’s because of Klaus that Tyler even bit Caroline to begin with. In order to fight for her and fight for himself, he’s taking the time to learn how to not be controlled by Klaus.”
E!Online has more cast interviews from their recent visit to the Vampire Diaries set and this time Candice Accola discusses the finer points of…uh, dancing, jewelry, and Tyler, in a rather coy, playful manner. You can watch Candice’s take below and then head over to E!Online for what Joseph Morgan has to say.
TV Guide‘s Robyn Ross is whetting our appetite for tonight’s episode with some teasers from Michael Trevino and Joseph Morgan about what’s coming up for Tyler and Klaus, including an unlikely ally Tyler tries to enlist. WARNING: This has spoilers for Our Town (EP311) and tonight’s The Ties That Bind (EP312). On Tyler’s developing feelings about being a hybrid, Michael says:
“When Tyler drank Elena’s blood and transformed into a full-on hybrid … he had a swagger to him and confidence and felt chosen. Every male figure in Tyler’s life has either gone or passed away or has been killed and so there’s this little complex of daddy issues. He was chosen to become the first successful hybrid so he wants to make Klaus happy, but now he sees how evil Klaus is and maybe this is a curse upon the curse he already has of being a werewolf.”
And in this week’s Vampire Diaries Bite, Robyn has some interesting scoop from Julie Plec on that certain word choice Elena used at the end of Our Town (EP311):
A select number of media outlets were invited to a round table interview with Vampire Diaries’ Michael Trevino today and he had some very interesting things to say about recent developments between Tyler and Caroline and…someone else, the lengths Tyler is willing to go to set things right in tomorrow night’s episode, and even who he’d like to see Tyler hook up with should he and Caroline be on the outs forever. Read (and watch!) the entire interviews at the below websites, but be cautioned there are spoilers for The New Deal (EP310), Our Town (EP311) and The Ties That Bind (EP312).
“At the end of last week’s episode we find out that as much free will as Tyler thinks he has, that sire bond is really a lot stronger than anybody could have imagined, so much so that he literally bites Caroline. But unwillingly. He’s as shocked as her. He’s like ‘How did I do that? Why did I do that?’ The sire bond is something not to be taken lightly,” Trevino says.
“It’s possible [there is no way to break the sire bond],” Trevino teased. “We don’t know for sure, but we know there are steps we have to do to get to that if you want to try. And it’s not the easiest process, but Tyler’s going to try.”
He’s ready for a fight with Klaus if it comes down to it. “I would like a showdown. I know Julie [Plec] would write something epic. It’d be really good. Plus, just for me, with any kind of showdown, it’s great to work with a great actor, and Joseph’s pretty solid,” he jokes.
So many things will definitely be changing for Mystic Falls’ number two hybrid, but Trevino assured EW that one essential thing would always remain the same: “Tyler is shirtless [tomorrow night], believe it or not,” he laughed. “Tyler is shirtless.”
HuffPost TV recently talked to Candice Accola about Caroline’s big birthday episode – Our Town (EP311), airing tonight! – and what the future holds for Caroline and the people (and vampires, and hybrids . . .) around her. About whether she thinks Tyler and Caroline are good for each other, Candice said:
“At this point, they both kind of feed into each other’s needs. Caroline is very much a fix-it person, and when she turned into a vampire, Stefan was kind of the one who guided her down the road of understanding what that meant and how to handle her supernatural abilities. She kind of got to be that person for Tyler, because he really needed someone in his life to guide him. So if you take that away from their relationship, is there actually a substantial relationship left? I think that’s what the viewers are going to start to find out in the next few weeks, whether there is or there isn’t.”
She also discusses Caroline’s relationships with Stefan, her parents, and her other friends.
Tonight is Caroline’s birthday, and Candice Accola hints to Hollywood Life that it may not necessarily be the happiest of birthdays. In addition to her break-up with Tyler, seems a certain hybrid Original may soon come into play:
“Caroline and Klaus haven’t really had any interaction up to this point, but their paths will finally cross,” Candice tells HollywoodLife.com of Caroline’s big day. “He sired her boyfriend, and she’s pissed. But you can’t really get pissed at Klaus because he’s got the power to kill anyone and everyone.” (Gulp!)
TV Guide caught up with Kat Graham to discuss the upcoming introduction of Bonnie’s mother Abby, her involvement in Stefan’s current coffin shenanigans, and the future of Bonnie and Jeremy (check out the TVD Bite below). Read the entire interview at TV Guide.
First off, BEWARE OF SPOILERS IN BOTH ARTICLES.
Still with us? Good! If you’re little confused about where we left off a few weeks ago, don’t worry, Entertainment Weekly is ready to catch you up -and vault you forward- before tonight’s episode. They’ve got some great insights from Julie Plec about what’s ahead as we return to Mystic Falls. From the sound of things, life is about to get pretty interesting for one Mr. Alaric Saltzman.
…”But it’s going to be fun to see Alaric, after all this time [RIP, Jenna], notice a beautiful woman in his vicinity and have a response to her. He’s become more and more of a guardian figure to Elena and Jeremy, and so, of course, Elena is gonna be rootin’ for him to have someone.”
TV Line is also looking ahead, and they also went to Julie for some answers. She’s got some things to say about Elena and Damon, a possible romance for Klaus, and Tyler’s new sire issues. She’s also got some dish about the coffins that’s sure to get fans’ attention.
“At least one of those daggered Originals is coming out of those coffins,” teases Plec. “That will happen sooner than later.
Which Original is getting unboxed? We have no idea and Julie won’t say, looks like we’ll all just have to watch and see. Good thing it’s Thursday, just a few more hours to wait!
This week’s Vampire Diaries Bite from TV Guide includes some teases from Julie Plec about what’s coming up in Tyler and Caroline’s relationship. You can also read more about what to expect from tonight’s episode, but beware of spoilers!
Screeners for the January 5th episode of The Vampire Diaries, The New Deal (EP310), were sent to select TV bloggers/reporters today, and KSiteTV has a (mildly spoilery) preview of what TVD fans can expect when the show returns next week.
7. Shippers will be happy. Which shippers? The CW gods said not to tell… but I can say at least three fan-groups get to see their favorite characters interacting. The choice of names that Klaus lists as “Elena’s loved ones” is also particularly interesting. And some shippers might want to get their screen-capturing software handy.
