Nina Dobrev teases the finale, Daniel Gillies on Elena’s influence + Julie spills up to TV Guide

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.

Hollywood Life talks to Michael Trevino, is Damon doomed on The Vampire Diaries?

Michael Trevino attended a Tyler Shields photo exhibit last week. There, he met Hollywood Life. The two talked about the reason why Tyler would probably stick around, the dynamic between him and Caroline and Michael’s wishes for them as a couple. He also mentions the charity he’s working for right now and Chloe, whose idea it actually was.

Are Matt and Tyler going to be friends again? Do you miss filming those buddy/buddy scenes with Zach Roerig?

I really do. I miss working with Zach. And also Steven [R. McQueen.] I think they’ll be friends. Like he said in the last episode, he’s by himself. His mother’s gone, he lost his sister. … Who else is he going to turn to? He realizes Tyler means well, but obviously, given the circumstances of the moon coming every now and then, you can’t control that.

THE ENTIRE INTERVIEW – AT HOLLYWOOD LIFE.

With tomorrow’s EPIC season finale, I bet Kristin‘s email was full of “Vampire Diaries” questions. She chose to answer two of them (both related to Damon)  in E! Online’s latest spoiler chat. If you haven’t watched episode 20 yet, they’re extremely spoilery for you. And if you’re a fan of Damon and Elena together, the second one will make you pant for next episode even more.

aka_savannah: Will this partial werewolf bite kill my poor heart-broken Damon? #TVD
Just from knowing what we know about how TV shows work—like how networks don’t let producers kill off lead male characters—we’re gonna go ahead and say…no, Damon will not die from the werewolf bite.

lauren_delena: Any Damon and Elena finale scoop? Will they finally kiss? Thanks!
We will say that because Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is going crazy over his werewolf bite, he is capable of doing anything and saying anything. All bets are off and anything can happen when an off-his-rocker vampire is on the loose!

More chat goodness: Joseph Morgan, Candice Accola, Michael Trevino & more

The Sun Also Rises (221) extended promo + song list and ratings for The Last Day

A couple of days ago, an extended trailer for the last episode before the season finale was revealed. As you all know, it’s titled “The Sun Also Rises”. The promo is highly spoilery, especially for the ones who haven’t watched episode 20 yet. It’s time!

Songs featured in “The Last Day” weren’t many, but quality. You can find them below and follow the links to order on Amazon. Thanks, @cmollere!

1. Cheyenne Marie Mize “Not” – Amazon US, Amazon UK
2. The Vaccines “Wolf Pack” – Amazon UK

Wonder how many viewers tuned in this past Thursday? Actually, they were just as many as last week. Maybe Bonnie has made some kind of spell? LOL. Don’t forget season three is a go. Let’s show our support for the show in the upcoming weeks, everyone!

The CW’s Vampire Diaries was even with last week’s 1.2 adults 18-49 ratings, while Nikita was down two tenths (25%) to a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating.

OVERNIGHT RATINGS – AT TV BY THE NUMBERS.

Spoilers galore: Klaus’s ritual, extreme loss of life + the year of the Originals

This season’s finale is coming closer and closer. The closer we get, the more chats surface. As we wrote yesterday, there was a press screening of last night’s episode on Wednesday. Most of the stories contain major spoilers for it (as well as the rest of the season), so I advise you not to read them unless you’ve seen it. This time, I decided to post just links to the articles since there are plenty of them and I feel like you’ll get a headache if there are segments from each one.

KSiteTV and Zap2it’s reviews of The Last Day (220)

In case you don’t know, there was a press screening of tonight’s “The Last Day” at The CW yesterday. After it, Julie Plec and some “Vampire Diaries” cast members (Steven, Kat, Michael, Joseph and Daniel) sat down to discuss the episode. Lots of reporters attended, including Craig Byrne and Natalie Abrams. Check out their thoughts below and come back tomorrow for a master post with interviews.

TV Guide: 6 Reasons Why You Should Watch Vampire Diaries This Week

5. Klaus needs to hunt down his ritual shopping list items: The ritual, as we’ve heard before, needs a witch, a vampire, a doppelganger and a werewolf. Conveniently, the ritual coincides with the return of Tyler (Michael Trevino) to Mystic Falls. Even if you think you know who will fill each of those positions, you’re wrong — dead wrong.

KSiteTV: Advance Review: The Vampire Diaries “The Last Day”

Oh wait. No I haven’t said enough. One MORE thing: There’s more than one “I-did-not-see-that-coming” moment tonight. That’s probably to be expected from TVD, but just be warned. What you think will happen, is probably not what is going to happen. I credit the Vampire Diaries writing team with keeping it real and having the ability to surprise us constantly.

The Last Day (220) extended trailer, Mystic Diaries with Nina & Matt

CWtelevision uploaded short and extended version of “The Last Day” promo on YouTube yesterday. I have posted the longer one, which contains quite big spoilers. And when I say big, I mean it. You’d better not watch if you don’t want to spoil the surprise. They swore they’d do anything to keep her safe, but will they manage to?

Vodpod videos no longer available.

New “Vampire Diaries” episode, new Mystic Diaries videos. This time, they’re recorded by Matt Davis and Nina Dobrev (can’t get enough of her, can you?). Paul, Ian, Sara and Katerina also star. Click on the screencaps below to watch the videos over at cwtv.com (you, too, international fans!).

 

Chat time: Vampire Diaries finale scoop, Originals & sacrifices

Yes, you heard that right. It’s chat time again! With season two coming to an end, there’s been hundreds of interviews surfacing. I put them all together in this post for your safety and sanity. There are many topics discussed, especially the finale, the Curse of the Sun and the Moon and Klaus, of course. For more scoop, click on the Interview category at the top of the page.

Zap2it: ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev on Katherine: ‘It must be a lonely place’

Don’t expect Katherine to stay down for long, though. “When she gets rejected, she wants it even more,” she says. “It’s the want-what-I-can’t-have syndrome. It makes the dynamic with Katherine and Damon a little bit more interesting because all of a sudden he doesn’t want her anymore. It’s kind of like ‘Oh, you don’t want me? I’m going to make you want me.’ It heightens the love triangle even more between those three.”

Synopsis & stills for The Sun Also Rises (221), new Stefan promo poster

Here’s the final poster in the “Ophelia-esque” promo series (left), courtesy of Vampire-Diaries.net. It portrays Stefan and has the rather ominous tagline “Dying to save her.” I assume it’s Elena we’re talking about here. I just doubt it that he would die for Katherine twice.

The official description of episode 21 also hit the Net last week. It’s titled “The Sun Also Rises” and that’s when the Sacrifice ritual begins. In case you were busy trying to catch up with all the news (as I was), you can find Vee’s speculations on the title here. Even though the synopsis is shorter than usual, it contains lots of spoilers, so be careful.

THE SACRIFICE RITUAL BEGINS — With the arrival of the full moon, Elena (Nina Dobrev) tries to prepare for whatever Klaus (guest star Joseph Morgan) has planned and Tyler (Michael Trevino) faces his second transformation. The terrifying events quickly spin out of control, despite an unexpected act of courage. Finally, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) admits the truth to Stefan (Paul Wesley) about a terrible new development they must face.

Steven R. McQueen, Sara Canning, Kat Graham, Candice Accola, Zach Roerig and Matt Davis also star. Paul M. Sommers directed the episode written by Caroline Dries & Mike Daniels.

In addition to the episode description, The CW has gave us our first look at it. Just one more set of stills (“As I Lay Dying”) to be released! Time goes by fast, indeed. Thanks to VampireSite.net again, more images are up in their gallery.

 

Interview round-up: TVD cast talks season 3, Zap2it sits down with Ian + Steven, Kat & Candice chats

I’m back and so are interviews! In anticipation of this week’s episode, a few chats have been released. Enjoy some excerpts below, more can be found at the links above them. They obviously don’t contain any spoilers for those who have already watched “The Last Dance”, but the rest must be careful.

TV Guide: Vampire Diaries’ Katerina Graham: “If Bonnie Ever Went Down, She’d Go Down with a Fight”

As previews show, Bonnie chooses to confront Klaus and prove that her powers are no joke. Still, Graham says, she’s not immune to typical teen insecurities. “Bonnie is filled with fear. She’s still only a 17-year-old girl and [is] scared, but is able to move forward and face her fears. That’s where her head is at: She can be scared out of her mind, but she presses forward and will do what she has to do.”
