EP Julie Plec has given some interviews this week. In this chat with Inside TV, she dishes about Klaus’s arrival, last week’s big twists and season 2 casualties. Head over to Entertainment Weekly for the whole article. HUGE spoiler warning to international fans, who haven’t seen episode 17 yet.

And now that we like Uncle John after he and Elena had their heart-to-heart, is Elena’s birth father going to die, too? “I have been waiting for a year for somebody to say, ‘Oh, I really like uncle John now,’ because we knew that we just had to find that pocket moment where [he and Elena] could connect on a real level, and we’ve been building to that very slowly and very subtly,” Plec laughs. “That, I swear to god, is one of my favorite scenes of the whole season.” Notice she didn’t answer our question…

She has also chatted to XFinity TV (Fancast’s new site name)’s Sara Bibel. Julie teases Mystic Falls’ 1960s decade dance, the countdown to Klaus, Tyler’s return and more. You can read an extract below, the entire story is up here. Beware of spoilers.

Every “Vampire Diaries” fan has his or her favorite couple. What can you tell me about the couples in Mystic Falls?
All the couples are about to realize that on the horizon there are difficult times in their relationship, for different reasons. Every relationship will be tested. Choices will be made. Things will change.

Know Thy Enemy (217) song list & ratings

Last night’s episode was filled with turns and twists. Even though there weren’t many songs featured, they were good enough to make us (or at least me) start singing. And it’s all Chris Mollere’s (@cmollere) fault. In case you don’t follow him on Twitter (what are you waiting for?), he promised there would be lots of tunes in “The Last Dance”. Can’t wait!

2. Snow Patrol “Give Me Strength” – Amazon US, Amazon UK

“Know Thy Enemy” ratings are also in. According to TV by the Numbers, 2.75 millions viewers tuned in last night. Unfortunately, the ratings continue to fall down. We understand that last hiatus was too long, but please, don’t stop showing your support for the show. Keep in mind there won’t be any more breaks until after season finale, so be sure to let all your friends know about the show! The more viewers, the better. Only 5 episodes left till the end of the Klaus Chapter!

The Vampire Diaries and Nikita each returned down a tenth with adults 18-49 from their last original episodes.

Zap2it’s video chats with Sara & Zach: Personal growth, twists and turns

Zap2it‘s @cadlymack continues to please “Vampire Diaries” fans with her set reports. She posted her chat with Sara Canning last night. The actress opens up about the fall-out of Isobel’s arrival, the men in Jenna’s life, which way she’s going to go, etc. You can watch the interview over at Zap2it.

“It’s kind of hard to say what needs to happen now, or what prominent piece of story needs to happen that would fix that. I think we would see some significant Alaric and Jenna time in terms of them addressing their relationship and defining it.”

Just an hour after Know Thy Enemy’s airing, Carina released another on-set interview. This time, it features Zach Roerig. He comments on Matt’s growth, the recent events around him and his reaction to Tyler’s impending return. Play the video below for more scoop and Zach’s blue eyes.

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.)

PopWrap’s Kat Graham interview: “Bonnie always bites off more than she can chew.”

Jarett Wieselman posted his chat with Katerina Graham this morning. He gets the scoop on tonight’s “Know Thy Enemy”, the other upcoming episodes and the chances of Bonnie dying before the season ends. Check out a snippet below and visit New York Post for the whole story.

PW: EP Julie Plec referred to this series of six new episodes as The Klaus Chapter — how does Bonnie factor in?
Kat: Before Jonas died he gave Bonnie her powers back and also gave her the message of how to kill Klaus. So she’s the only one out of the whole gang that knows how to kill Klaus — and probably the only one capable of it. So there’s a lot of responsibility on her shoulders. Bonnie’s the only one who can save Elena and really puts herself on the line.

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

Episode 20 & 22 (season finale!) titles, additional stills from season 2

Spoiler TV has recently revealed the CW primetime schedule for the entire season. Thank God, there won’t be any other breaks this year until after the finale. The schedule also shows episode 20 title – “The Last Day”. Last dance, last day… poor Mystic Falls residents, I would say!

Plus, Ian Somerhalder announced the start of season 2 finale shooting yesterday. Right after that, he tweeted a photo of his own copy of the script (right). It is titled “As I Lay Dying”, written by TBD and directed by John Behring (“Plan B”, “The Last Dance”). I’m with mixed feelings about this – happy that the cast will be finally able to catch a break, but also sad that it’s that time of the year again.

It’s here-Season finale episode (ep222) of TVD.Wow,44 episodes in 24 months.Almost 3pm,got out of bed,coffee and new script- awesomeness…

Andrea at Vampire Diaries Web has added yet another batch of extra stills and BTS pictures to their gallery. There are images from almost every single episode so far as well as a few from next week’s “Know Thy Enemy”. They’re honestly awesome, so be sure to visit the site and look through them!

UPDATE:

Vampire-Diaries.net reported the last unknown season 2 episode title last night. According to them, episode 21 will be the one where “The Sun Also Rises”. Vee also let her imagination loose and shared her thoughts on the recently revealed titles. Check them all out here. Some really interesting references there!

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?

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.

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.
