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.

Kevin Williamson and David Anders stopped by TV Guide, too. David’s interview with Robyn Ross stars with an upcoming Elena line saying, “Why does everything John touches fall apart?”.

Damian Holbrook posted his chat with Kevin yesterday, too. The executive producer talks about last night’s “Crying Wolf” in particular. As the ones who watched the episode know, “S–t goes down.” Go here to find out why.

Siding with the furrier folks in town could come with a hefty price — especially for a certain Salvatore in possession of that mysterious moonstone — but given the shaky state of his relationship with Caroline, young Mr. Lockwood doesn’t really have a pack of options. “He doesn’t know whom to trust because Caroline lied to him about everything,” says Williamson. “He’s very lonely and vulnerable, but he’s also an aggressive guy, so he may not respond appropriately.”
