Give Me My Remote has some more from their recent interview with Kat Graham to share to whet our appetites for tonight’s episode. Turns out the cast is just as surprised by the show’s twists and turns as we are!
Brother banter time! Enjoy.
Well, we didn’t have to wait long for yet another sneak peek at next week’s The Vampire Diaries. Check out this scene between Rebekah and Matt from The Rager (EP403). the episode airs Thursday, October 25th.
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.”
Watched last night’s episode? Then check out these spoilerific post-mortem interviews with Julie Plec, where she touches base on specific plot points (those of you who are little confused about a particular Damon and Elena moment will definitely want to read):
- Entertainment Weekly: ‘Vampire Diaries’ EP Julie Plec talks the meaning of blood-sharing, this week’s emotional final scene, and what’s next
- Zap2It: ‘Vampire Diaries’ ‘Memorial’ recap: Julie Plec talks Elena’s first ‘feed’ and that very special appearance
Time for a little more of next week’s episode, The Rager (EP403), from the CW.
If you’ve stopped SOBBING YOUR EYES OUT enough to actually see, here’s a taste of The Rager (EP403) from the CW!
UPDATE: Link to the (iffy quality) Canadian promo.
UPDATE TWO: Here’s another Canadian promo.
Entertainment Weekly sat down with Nina Dobrev during a recent TVD set visit to talk about the Season 3 finale, Elena’s transition, and Salvatores:
“She’s confused and changing and having different cravings and having different urges,” says Dobrev. “I feel like she’s kind of gone back to being stuck in the middle between the two boys.”
Give Me My Remote has more with Julie Plec, who discusses the show’s success, Twitter reactions to the Season 3 finale, and why Season 4 will not be slowing things down:
JP: And so I went into season 3 and I told all the actors, “This is the year we really need to prove to everybody that we’re good at what we do and this show is never going to falter. And the quality of storytelling, quality of production, quality of performance is our priority, and we’re going to do it, we’re going to work our asses off so nobody thinks this was just a fluke.” And we did so well in season 3 that I think in the back of our heads, we thought we could step back a little in season 4 and sleep a little. And then we get to season 4 and we realized, no, it’s been going so well, we haven’t faltered yet, let’s just drive this train all the way to the end of the series and never let anyone say, “You really blew it.” So that’s the goal.
And Zap2It has a nice introduction to upcoming guest star Grace Phipps, whose character, April, takes her bow on The Vampire Diaries in tonight’s episode. Spoiler alert: Phipps is really charming.
Phipps brings a great new energy to the cast, while April shifts the dynamic of the show a bit. Now, Elena isn’t concerned about saving herself all the time — she’s got a new, innocent person in town who means a lot to her, and keeping April safe begins to take priority. As we’ll see in tonight’s episode, “Memorial,” keeping April safe is much easier said than done thanks to a new hunter in town.
Is your Thursday dragging a little? Don’t worry, we’re here for you. We’ve got a whole group of goodies to keep you going until tonight’s episode, starting with a pair of interviews from Zap2it. First up, Michael Trevino talks about how Tyler feels about being Klaus’s crash pad and a little secret (spoiler!) he’s been keeping from Caroline (VIDEO).
“Tyler is in a state of not only shock, but also ‘Okay, if he was in my body, what was he doing in my body? How was he treating Caroline or all the other characters?’” Trevino explains. “He’s mainly finding out, okay, what are the consequences going to be to all the people that didn’t know.”
“Rebekah and Matt have been a little bit … hot and cold,” Zach says. “I think you can expect to see Rebekah trying to kind of clean things up with Matt and get him to forgive her. ‘I got upset. My bad, I tried to kill you. But you survived! So now we can flirt again!’ I feel like it’s going to continue to be the same dance, though, because at the end of the day, in some weird way, Matt can wrap his head around why Rebekah would do that.”
We’ve also got another interview with Zach Roerig, this time from examiner.com. We’re hoping they’ll fix the spelling of his last name, but typos aside we’re going to be very interested to see more of Matt and Jeremy teaming up in the future.
“Now that Matt’s become more involved and puts his neck on the line…there’s one person in particular that I think we’ll start to see Matt keeping a watchful eye over—Jeremy. Even if characters start to go off to college, he’ll still be around; he’ll still be in high school. So I think before Matt didn’t really have a reason to stick around or feel like he had any family or any ties, but I think now you’ll start to see his brotherly connection to Jeremy [as a] tie,” Roering previewed.
Last but not least, Ian Somerhalder recently shared some thoughts with iOL’s, and we’re e’re not too surprised to see him advocating for the wild side of Elena Gilbert.
“Maybe there’s some unpre- dictable craziness in store for Elena when she turns into a vampire and her emotions are amplified 10 000-fold. She might become a super unbelievably volatile being.”
Memorial (EP402) airs in the U.S. in just two days, and the CW has given us another sneak peek!
