Amy Wilkinson (@amymwilk) has posted her latest dose of “Vampire Diaries” goodies. In this video interview, Nina teases what to expect from “As I Lay Dying”, which, according to her, prepares the audience for season 3. The entire article is up over at Hollywood Crush.

PopWrap‘s Jarett Wieselman continues his “Vampire Diaries” interview series with the following chat. In it, Daniel Gillies discusses Elijah’s personality and humanity (or what’s left of it) as well as his connection with Elena. Check out an excerpt here and head over to NYPost for the whole material.
PW: So you think there might be something more to their relationship?
Daniel: There’s no question that he’s enchanted by Elena but it’s not as simplistic as needing to be with this girl — I just think he’s more fascinated by her as a study in the potential of what a person can be. I think that if he does survive [the finale] and leaves Mystic Falls, I don’t think he can stay away because she’s too much of a miracle for him. There’s something in her that’s also in him – I don’t mean to be grotesque about it and frame this in a romantic context, but there’s a spiritual quality they share and that’s going to be very difficult for him to not return to.
Finally, Robyn Ross has released part one of her exclusive interview with Julie Plec. The producer and writer explains the (bloody) events around the Sacrifice and leave no clueless innocence, and shares her expectations for the May 12th finale. Visit TV Guide for more and come back tomorrow for the next part!
The penultimate episode was epic, how can the finale compare? Plec: The last episode was clearly the season finale of our mythology storyline. We went all out and that was as deliberate choice knowing that the story we wanted to tell in our season finale is actually the emotional resolution of the season. We also want to really give the audience a window to where we’re going in Season 3, a taste of what the series is going to be like as we move forward.
May has probably been the busiest month of the year for “Vampire Diaries” stars. They have been giving hundreds of interviews, mainly about the May 12th finale and next season. Below, you’ll find chats with Joseph, Candice, Michael, Zach, Michaela and Lisa. The usual spoiler warning is available once again.
Been dying for a Stefan poster? Well, your wish just came true. New January Sweeps poster (left) hit the Net a few days ago. In case the MQ version doesn’t please you, Blood Falls have it in high quality. Sorry, Damon, but there’s a reason he always gets the girl.
SECRETS AND LIES – Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) get away for what they hope will be a romantic weekend at the Gilbert family lake house, not realizing that they’ve been followed. Jenna (Sara Canning) starts to worry that Alaric (Matt Davis) isn’t being honest with her. Jules (guest star Michaela McManus) explains the importance of the sun and moon curse to Tyler (Michael Trevino), but leaves out an important detail. Damon (Ian Somerhalder) attends a tea at the Historical Society in order to talk to Elijah (guest star Daniel Gillies), but Elijah isn’t giving up any secrets. With help from Caroline (Candice Accola) and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen), Bonnie (Katerina Graham) uses deceptive measures to get shocking new information out of Luka (guest star Bryton James). Finally, Tyler offers Matt (Zach Roerig) some relationship advice.
David Von Ancken directed the episode written by Brian Young.
The CW has released images from “Daddy Issues” as well. Credit goes to Andrea, again. There are some previews below, all the stills are up over at Vampire Diaries Web. Looks like Tyler fans will join Stelena ones in their happiness.
When The O.C. vet Melinda Clarke joins The Vampire Diaries on March 25 as Matt’s MIA mama, Kelly, there will be a total of three MILFs in Mystic Falls who have formerly appeared as Jerry’s girlfriends on Seinfeld. Melinda played Alex, who preferred Jerry smooth-chested, on the NBC sitcom. Susan Walters, Tyler’s mom, Mrs. Lockwood, on VD, was Jerry’s infamous Dolores (aka Mulva). And Marguerite MacIntyre, who hunts vamps as Caroline’s mommy, Sheriff Forbes, played Jerry’s Miss America contestant date, Karen.
“I had no idea!,” says Diaries exec producer Kevin Williamson upon learning of the Seinfeld connection. “It wasn’t by design, but I wonder if there is some unconscious link. I was a Seinfeld freak.” So much so, he threw in a line at the start of the season that the sitcom was Stefan’s favorite. “It’s the greatest modern-day American comedy of all time.”
