THE VAMPIRE DIARIES Scoop: A Reunion Is Coming

One of the biggest and juiciest tidbits gleaned from the recent celebration on behalf of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES’ 100th Episodes was the fact that the 100th episode will be a reunion episode.  But if anyone knows Mystic Falls’ history, it is not a high school reunion that everyone is talking about.  It is a reunion of lost souls – the dearly departed killed off before their time.  But just who is coming back to visit and for how long, that’s the mystery of the 100th episode.
During red carpet interviews this past weekend, the cast of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, along with a few familiar faces of characters long-gone, were on hand to talk about which of the show’s many character deaths hit them the hardest and who they would not hesitate to resurrect in a heartbeat to bring back to the show.
While none of the cast or even producers were willing to spoil the fun surprise of which of the killed-off characters would be making an appearance in the 100th episode, everyone sure had a fun time talking about which deaths rocked their worlds and who they wanted to see return on the show – whether for the 100th episode or in some future episode of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES. Here is what each had to say: [Read more…]

Klaus! Stefan! Alaric! Delena! We Preview THE VAMPIRE DIARIES Season 3 with Executive Producer Julie Plec

When we last left THE VAMPIRE DIARIES all the way back in May, the fates of more than one character was left hanging in the balance – not in life-and-death terms, but rather the fate of their souls and their increasingly intertwined relationships.  Uber-vamp Klaus successfully completed the ritual allowing him to embrace both his vampire and werewolf destinies, but not without the ultimate sacrifice: the lives of Jenna, Jules, and John.  Astoundingly, both Petrova doppelgangers, Elena and Katherine, survived the bloody sacrifice – thanks to some heroic acts by Damon and John.  Damon foolishly fed his blood to Elena to make sure she would not die and John gave up his soul so that Elena would not lose hers when she revived from death. 
Then, not to be left out, Stefan intervened to save Damon’s life, by agreeing to stay with Klaus in exchange for his blood to cure Damon from the werewolf bite.  So many noble sacrifices in the end.  But it may mean a world of trouble ahead this season with Stefan bound to Klaus and forced to participate in Klaus’ deadly games; and complications on the home-front as Elena confessed her love for Damon when she thought he was dying. 
Plus, Damon has been left alone to fight the good fight in Mystic Falls while Stefan is caught in Klaus’ evil web.  Also, lurking in the background is Elijah, Klaus’ loyal brother who could not kill him when he had the chance and Katherine who is now free of Klaus’ clutches, but without Stefan to fixate her blood-lust and desires may seek to seduce Damon yet again – or will she find another love to fixate her attentions?
Then there is the other-worldly complications of Jeremy’s ex-girlfriends appearing out of the ether as if coming back to haunt him from the grave.  ‘Tis the season for ghosts, lost souls, and love in the cross-hairs. 
While at Comic-Con in July, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES cast and executive producer Julie Plec was in attendance to tease a little about the third season.  Talking with the press, Julie shared what is next for the good-hearted Stefan who made a noble sacrifice at the end of last season and how the parallel stories of Stefan/Damon and Klaus/Elijah will impact the upcoming season.
