More new The Vampire Diaries stills

The lovely Andrea from Nina Dobrev Network has even more episode stills for us! You can see a few images below. Check out the rest over at Nina Dobrev Network.

myFanbase interviews Malese Jow: “I love being hands on with fans and getting them involved.”

11. Anna is a great character and fits perfectly in the whole show. Do you know if there are any plans to keep your character for the second season?

I can’t say… Guess you’ll have to keep watching and see for yourself!

12. Anna tried everything to reunite with her mother. Now that Pearl is out of the tomb Anna seems to notice that is wasn’t for the best. Will she act against her mother’s believes?

I can’t give away plot details, but Anna definitely doesn’t regret getting her mother back. Sure there are differences, but that’s because they’re getting their sea legs back within their relationship, considering lots of time has passed since they’ve been together.

Thanks @ms_supernatural for the heads up!

PopWrap interviews Kevin Williamson: “The Isobel episode actually answers a lot of questions .. but raises a couple too.”

My adoration of Kevin Williamson and the by-products of his brain are well covered territory on PopWrap — “Scream,” “Dawson’s Creek,” “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” and “The Faculty” have all earned ink. But then he went and launched “The Vampire Diaries” which kicked over the well and ran away with all the ink.

2010’s Best New Drama premieres its penultimate episode tonight titled “Isobel” and promises to crank up Elena’s mama drama in a big way. And “big” is the word du jour next week as well when the season finale takes a page out of Daniel Day Lewis’ playbook. Oh yes, there will be blood.

I caught up with Kevin as he put the finishing touches on next week’s episode, titled “Founder’s Day,” for a frank chat about the show’s first year. What worked, what didn’t and what fans will have to wait for next season to see.

PopWrap: First off, I just have to say how much I’ve enjoyed this season of “Vampire Diaries.” Easily the best new drama on TV right now.
Kevin Williamson: It’s been really hard so that’s nice to hear. We’re exhausted. First year shows are very difficult. There are just so many elements in the storytelling aspect. Thank goodness all the other stuff — casting, directing, production — fell into place from the very beginning.

PW: I know you’re still editing the finale, but can you look at the season objectively yet?
Kevin: I can look back and think, oy! There’s not much going on there that some time wouldn’t have fixed. We’re on the TV schedule – there’s no time to say, “gee, another re-write might help that.”

PW: What specifically would you like to get a “do over” on?
Kevin: You’re talking to me – I’m never happy. I want to rewrite everything. I could sit in a room by myself and rewrite forever and ever and never send it to Atlanta. There are characters and situations I wish I could have explored more. We just weren’t able to properly introduce a lot, so we just held back. But that’s OK, it’ll give us a richer second season.

New Zap2it scoop on The Vampire Diaries


Will Stefan’s new human blood habit drive Elena into Damon’s arms?
“The Vampire Diaries” will never be the same after Stefan and Damon finally tell Elena how they became vampires in another highly-anticipated flashback episode. Damon and Alaric will continue their reluctant partnership as they try to get the jump on Jonathan Gilbert, who is headed for a messy fight with Pearl. A mysterious invention — possibly dreamt up by the original Jonathan Gilbert in 1864 — will bring Isobel back to Mystic Falls, but Elena’s first meeting with her birth mother won’t end well. Not everyone will survive the season finale on May 13.
