UPDATE: Now replaced with the official CW version!

More from Kat Graham and Julie Plec: Tonight’s “Know Thy Enemy”, characters’ returns & deaths + the countdown to Klaus begins

One more interview with Katerina has surfaced today, this time with E! Online. She dishes about the Sacrifice, what lengths Bonnie is willing to go for Elena to and her romance with Jeremy. Continue to read to learn who the new witch in town is, the rest of the article can be found at Watch with Kristin.

We’re not sure we love that ominous answer and it certainly didn’t put us at ease, but maybe the addition of a new witch in Mystic Falls will help fight evil and keep Bonnie living to see another day (and another season). “Lisa Tucker, who plays Greta, Jonas’ daughter, is coming to town, which is really exciting. Another witch on the scene! I’m always for more witches. The more witches the better,” Graham tells us.

Inside TV has recently sat down with Julie Plec to talk about all things “Vampire Diaries”. The writer spills up about almost every character’s storyline, including Damon’s, Caroline’s and Isobel’s. She also discusses tonight’s episode, next Mystic Falls’ full moon and the season finale.

“He [Morgan] has a depth and an intelligence as an actor, but he’s also got this great wicked grin and these dimples that make him seem both fun and naughty at the same time, even as he’s being evil or very stern,” Plec says. “So there’s a playfulness about him that Kevin and I really liked because we didn’t want Klaus to be a one-note bad guy. The more layers that we can bring to the character, the more successful the character’s gonna be, and Joseph seems to have the ability to do all that.” (Plec says he’s also read all the L.J. Smith books upon which the series is based, and has not only done his research on Klaus, but also the vampire canon and lore in general.)

With an all new episode this Thursday, the reporters have been better than ever to “Vampire Diaries” fans. A few new interviews with the cast have popped this week.

Zap2it: ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Kat Graham: Bonnie is prepared to sacrifice herself for Elena

“I was doing stunts recently that I’ve never done before,” she says, excited. “I still get to play with fire and all that crazy stuff. You’ll definitely get to see all the fun witchy cool things that people love to see. It’s very challenging. Those scenes take a lot longer than some of the other scenes because there are all these rigs and stuff like that.” She admits that there have been occasions when the stuntwork and the fire (it’s real, folks, not edited in later) have made her “very, very nervous.”

Dish of Salt: Candice Accola Takes a Bite Out of ‘Vampire Diaries’

Candice Accola chats with AccessHollywood.com’s Laura Saltman about the love triangle between her character, Caroline, and the two men in her life, Matt and Tyler. So, who does she prefer? “The Vampire Diaries” returns with new episodes on April 7 on The CW.

This week’s Know Thy Enemy webclip, more stills for The Last Dance

The CW has been treating us more than well lately. After the recently released extended promo, the network uploaded a “Know Thy Enemy” clip to their YouTube channel. It shows the good old trio, also known as Stefan, Damon and Katherine. The wait is over in two days!

Vampire Diaries preview for future episodes, more stills from Klaus (219) + new promo poster

CWtelevision has released a shiny new promo as an April present to all “Vampire Diaries” fans. It includes footage from at least three upcoming episodes as well as scenes with almost every character. There’s something for everyone, to put it mildly. The CW certainly knows how to please their viewers. Just five episodes left until season 2 finale. Are you ready for a ride?

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Vampire Diaries Web has posted three more stills from “Klaus”. Unfortunately, there’s still not one of the “oldest vampire in the history of time”. Not that it comes as a surprise – I suppose the writers want to keep him a mystery. However, the new pictures offer a look at crying Elena and Jenna, plus rather shocked Damon and Andie. Looks like the girl’s still alive – you can’t deny she has luck. As to why the ladies are crying, we don’t know. But don’t worry – all will be revealed April 21st.

April Sweeps poster has also been revealed. It portrays “born to die” Elena surrounded by flowers. You can check it out along with some “Klaus” stills below. Head over to Vampire-Diaries.net for a textless version.

Klaus (219) episode description + first look, EW’s sneak peek at The Last Dance

The summary of probably the most anticipated episode this season came out last night. It’s titled “Klaus” and airs Thursday, April 21st. That’s when the Original will come out of the dark, as Ausiello teased in February. And guess what? Apart from Klaus’ debut, the episode will also include flashbacks to 1491 (hello there, Elijah!). Excited much?

KLAUS (GUEST STAR JOSEPH MORGAN, “BEN HUR”) IS REVEALED — Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) are furious when they discover that Elena (Nina Dobrev) has defied them both to make a new ally and take control of the plan to out-maneuver Klaus (Morgan). Disagreement over how to protect Elena leads to growing tension between the Salvatore brothers. Meanwhile, Stefan has his hands full trying to keep a confused and frightened Jenna (Sara Canning) safe. Flashbacks to 1491 reveal Katherine’s (Nina Dobrev) introduction to Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Klaus, along with the origin of the moonstone curse. Elena learns shocking new information about Klaus’ motives.

Matt Davis also stars.

Many thanks to the amazing Judy Yam for tweeting this premiere still from “Klaus” (left). The description doesn’t lie – things between the Salvatore brothers are looking tense, indeed.

Finally, EW has an exclusive sneak peek at the April 14th episode of “The Vampire Diaries”. It includes quotes from executive producer Julie Plec as well as new stills from the 1960s Decade Dance. Beware of spoilers! Looks like everyone is waiting for Klaus to arrive. But don’t get too excited – they will be disappointed.

Official synopsis & images for The Last Dance (218) + new Know Thy Enemy stills

VampireSite.net posted the episode description for episode 18, “The Last Dance” a few days ago. It airs April 14th, a week after the show’s return. And the following week (April 21st), the much anticipated Klaus’ debut will be finally here. Mystic Falls’ citizens better enjoy their last fun evening out for a while… but what if it’s really last for anyone?

DANCING WITH DANGER — As the high school prepares to throw a “1960s Decade Dance,” Elena (Nina Dobrev) starts receiving disturbing messages from Klaus via an unusual source. Bonnie (Katerina Graham) tries to reassure Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) that she is strong enough to help Elena, but a worried Jeremy asks Stefan (Paul Wesley) for advice. Caroline (Candice Accola) talks Matt (Zach Roerig) into taking her to the dance. Expecting Klaus to show up at the dance, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Alaric (Matt Davis) attend as chaperones, but Klaus is playing a complicated game that keeps them on edge. Finally, Damon comes up with a new plan of action that shocks and upsets everyone.

John Behring directed the episode written by Michael Narducci.

There are also “The Last Dance” stills up at VampireSite.net. All of Stefan & Elena, with Damon in the background. In case these two are not your favourites, Vampire Diaries Web has more HQ images as well as a couple of BTS photos. Still wondering where Andie is…

In addition to all these goodies, VDW got their hands on 10+ new pictures from “Know Thy Enemy”. They contain pretty big spoilers, so be careful. And if you have some time to spare, the girls uploaded over 100 brand new stills from season one and two both yesterday. These are worth checking out, trust me. 😉

Interview round-up: New promo videos, LA Times chats with Julie, Candice’s reveals to EW & MTV + more

Even though the show is on too-long hiatus this month, we can’t complain of lack of interviews. Various reporters have talked to the cast lately, such as Show Tracker, Zap2it‘s Carina Mackenzie and Hollywood Crush. We gathered all the articles in one post for your sanity. Check out the best quotes below and click on the links for the entire stories. And if you’d like to ask the writers a question yourself, head over to Vampire Diaries’ official Facebook page.

PopWrap: Dawn Olivieri: You never really die on ‘Vampire Diaries’

PW: Right, especially when that choice involves suffering from a fictional malady.
Dawn: Totally. What’s funny to me is that the writers are really showing what it’s doing to Damon. In season one, he was compelling Vicki and it became disastrous. He may have entered this situation thinking it could be a similar case, but it’s turning out much differently for Damon, which has been an interesting turn. He’s not just able to shrug her off like he thought he could. I can’t wait for you guys to see episode 19 – there’s a lot of Andie and Damon in that one. Some big things go down.

Show Tracker: ‘The Vampire Diaries’: Remembering the dead with executive producer Julie Plec

That constant dark cloud over Mystic Falls means no one is safe forever, not even the show’s main trio of Elena (Nina Dobrev), Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder). “I think that there are people who are safe for quite a long time,” Plec says. “But the rule always applies. Anything can happen at any time, and not everybody’s going to like it, and not everyone’s going to be happy about it.” While Elena, Stefan and Damon are probably not going anywhere soon, it does seem likely there will be more casualties when the series returns April 7. “I think we’ve got about 20 characters working at this point. Yes, there will be a percentage of them that will not make it to season three.”

Know Thy Enemy (217) description, stills + extended promo

The CW Network has revealed the official synopsis of the first episode after the hiatus, “Know Thy Enemy”. Looks like a lot of things are going to happen. Be sure to tune in April 7th for all new “Vampire Diaries”. Thanks to VampireSite.net for the heads up!

HIDE IN PLAIN SIGHT — Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Alaric (Matt Davis) both lash out at John (guest star David Anders) when Isobel’s (guest star Mia Kirshner) unexpected arrival leaves Jenna (Sara Canning) devastated. Bonnie (Katerina Graham) works with Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) to find the spell they’ll need to harness her ancestors’ power. A heartbroken Caroline (Candice Accola) doesn’t know what to do about Matt (Zach Roerig). Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon realize they have a new secret weapon.

Wendey Stanzler directed the episode written by Mike Daniels.

HQ stills popped up as well. It was about time! Some of them are quite spoilery, especially for the ones who haven’t watched “The House Guest” yet. See previews here, more images are up in Vampire Diaries Web’s gallery.

And here’s the extended trailer of episode 17, courtesy of The CW again. Let’s hope a preview clip will be released soon. Just 15 days left until you know who is back. 😉
