Yes, you heard that right. It’s chat time again! With season two coming to an end, there’s been hundreds of interviews surfacing. I put them all together in this post for your safety and sanity. There are many topics discussed, especially the finale, the Curse of the Sun and the Moon and Klaus, of course. For more scoop, click on the Interview category at the top of the page.
Don’t expect Katherine to stay down for long, though. “When she gets rejected, she wants it even more,” she says. “It’s the want-what-I-can’t-have syndrome. It makes the dynamic with Katherine and Damon a little bit more interesting because all of a sudden he doesn’t want her anymore. It’s kind of like ‘Oh, you don’t want me? I’m going to make you want me.’ It heightens the love triangle even more between those three.”

The Hollywood Reporter: Q&A: ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Boss on the Series’ Breakneck Pace, Casting Klaus and Bonnie’s Fate
THR: Was there a storyline you weren’t 100 percent sold on in the beginning that ended up moving forward?
Williamson: I remember when we came up with the [Katherine arc]. I said we can only bring Katherine in once or twice. We had written the first episode and we were down on set watching Miss Nina [Dobrev] portray her in that little black outfit and slink her way to set. I said, “OK, we might need to rethink this.” We kept saying we’d see her in three or four episodes, and the next thing you know, Katherine took over. We recreated the storyline. She was always supposed to be the puppeteer and the mastermind off-camera, and we brought it on-camera. It gave us another true villain and for Damon another adversary.
She Plays: Caroline Forbes, high school cheerleader-turned-“the little vampire that could,” says exec producer Kevin Williamson. “She’s the strongest character on the show.” Adds Accola: “The writers gave me a character that started off as this archetypal bitch, and then she was given a chance to mess up and come out the other side a stronger, more secure person. She’s finding herself and growing up.”
Are we going to see any more Stefan/Caroline wonderful bonding moments as the season comes to a close?
There might be little moments here and there, but their world has kind of drifted apart as of recent. Not in necessarily a negative way, but in a way that’s actually positive because Caroline’s being forced to take care of situations herself. So you’ll see snippets, but they both each have a lot separately on their plate.
“Greta is not someone you want to mess with,” Lisa tells us, though she won’t say whether or not Greta presents herself as a friend or foe to the Salvatore brothers. “A lot of the witches on the show follow tradition very closely, but Greta’s definitely her own witch. She’s very powerful.”

• The May 5 episode picks up as day turns to night and, with the exception of the very end, takes place entirely on the evening of the full moon. “The loss of life is significant and very, very, very tragic,” exec producer Julie Plec teases. “The fallout of it is really painful for a lot of characters. The episode is called ‘The Sun Also Rises,’ and it’s really meant to say that our characters, at the end of this very, very long night, need to find some glimmer of hope when morning comes because what they go through is really profoundly life-alteringly horrible for them.”
