kinga_nagy: Please, anything #TVD!
Here are three words to tease what’s coming up, courtesy of Nina Dobrev: “Shocking. Bloody. Death.” Time to stock up on tissues!
Wetpaint scoop on what to expect for tonight’s episode 4×05 “The Killer”.
As we see in this clip, Elena (Nina Dobrev) is chomping at her fangs to go after Connor (Todd Williams) and save Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen). “I want her to not be a damsel in distress. I want her to go out and protect her brother,” writer Michael Narducci told reporters at the screening.
In case you couldn’t tell from the promo photos, Caroline (Candice Accola) definitely hears about, meets, and has words with Tyler’s (Michael Trevino) friend Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin). Don’t be surprised if Klaus (Joseph Morgan) tries to use what he thinks he knows about Hayley and Tyler with Caroline “to try to squeeze in there and maybe make a move or two,” says executive producer Julie Plec.
Again, as suggested by the promo photos, Bonnie (Kat Graham) is spending a lot of time with Professor Shane (David Alpay). He definitely has an interest in the witch, but his intentions aren’t as clear as crystal just yet. “We just don’t know if it’s in her best interest or not,” says Plec.
Celebuzz scoop on what to expect on tonight’s episode 4×05 “The Killer”.
Executive producer Julie Plec explained to reporters at a screening of the episode, “Here’s the thing, we like to do this every now and then… what we like to do is introduce a trope that you sort of think you know where it’s going and everyone gets all up in arms because ‘Oh here comes the slutty little vixen in the show and Tyler’s a cheater and that’s how they’re going to break up [Tyler and] Caroline to get Caroline to Klaus [Joseph Morgan] … and then we like to basically be like that’s not at all what we’re doing.”
1. Elena (Nina Dobrev) is a doer. A lot of the times when the action goes down in Mystic Falls, Elena is on the outskirts or the one needing to be saved. On “The Killer,” this is far from the truth. Episode writer Michael Narducci told us that he wrote it wanting her to do more things.
“I do not want her to not be a damsel in distress. I want her to go and protect her brother,” he said. “If both Jeremy and Matt’s lives are at stake, what’s Elena gong to do? Is she going to want for all these other people to get involved and save everyone for her or will she get involved and do something?”
2. Moments for both Delena and Stelena fans. Both Delena and Stelena get moments that should make their fandoms happy or at least give them strong feelings about them during the scenes. There are kisses and beds involved, but we’re not telling you which scene involved what and who each is with.
3. Major Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) goodness. There is more than just one scene between the Salvatore brothers that is amazing on “The Killer.” From the preview The CW released, you already know the two have a difference of opinion in the plan to take down Connor but things go pretty far between them and it is fantastic to watch.
5. Some “witch therapy.” Bonnie (Kat Graham) spends the entire episode with Professor Shane (David Alpay) learning how to confront her guilt and fear and use magic again. But as we know from last week, the Professor isn’t exactly who he says he is and has a hidden agenda and reason to protect Bonnie.
6. Connor is hungry for information. “From what I understand,” says Williams, “Connor is in a way a victim of his tattoo. People assume that’s all that Connor wants to do is kill vampires and that he derives some kind of pleasure out of it but it’s quite the opposite, he’s a very tortured man.”
He continues: “He has a lot of questions and he didn’t know his origins or his background. He’s on a search for so many things, That there’s a level of desperation that you could see, because he was like, ‘I just want to know. I want everything that I’ve done to be worth it. This tattoo – he’s not able to be compelled by vampires but it kind of compels him to do what he does.”

If you’re ready for Elena to start taking control of her life, then season four is the season for you, my friend. “This season is really intense, for me especially because I am a vampire,” Nina Dobrev tells us. “I’m getting to kick some more ass. Elena is becoming a tough cookie. Before she used to talk about being independent, and now she has a chance to be.” Sounds like Elena is going to be a bit more Katherine-esque this season.

ELENA’S WORST NIGHTMARE — Elena (Nina Dobrev) awakens on the morning after the accident to find the thing she dreaded most has come true – she died with vampire blood in her system and now must go through the terrible transition to become a vampire…or face certain death. Stefan (Paul Wesley) promises Elena that he and Bonnie (Kat Graham) will exhaust every possible way out of the situation, but Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is furious with his brother for letting Elena die in the first place. Bonnie pays a terrible price for her attempt to change Elena’s fate, while Damon takes out his frustration and rage on Matt (Zach Roerig). In a rare moment of empathy, Rebekah (guest star Claire Holt) is deeply touched by Stefan and Elena’s devotion to one another. Finally, Pastor Young (guest star Michael Reilly Burke) and the Town Council members begin rounding up the vampires and their supporters, leading to an unexpected tragedy. Steven R. McQueen, Candice Accola, Michael Trevino and Joseph Morgan also star. Chris Grismer directed the episode written by Caroline Dries (#401).

Who will Elena lean on during her transition on The Vampire Diaries? — Jennie
NATALIE: The better question might be, “What does she rely on?” Remember in Season 1 when both Elena and Stefan wrote in their journals? Expect a significant callback. If these pages could talk, we’d love to know what it would say when she writes, “Dear Diary, I am now a vampire.”

@itsmrswesley: Will Stefan be putting a ring on Elena’s finger?
He will be entirely too busy dealing withthis situation to even think about locking down Elena. Or, to put it a better way, here is Kat Graham: “I think this is one of our biggest seasons so far. You’re going to see an interesting shift with Elena in the first few episodes,” she tells us. As for her own character? “Bonnie is going to meet somebody who is going to have a huge impact on her future,” Graham teases.

Vampire Diaries fans have already heard that season 4 may very well end with Elena (Nina Dobrev) graduating from high school. But here’s why: “Paul Wesley looked at me this year, and he’s like, ‘I don’t have to go back to high school, do I?’” exec producer Julie Plec tells EW with a laugh. “I said, ‘Yeah, you do. You’re in high school.’ He goes, ‘That’s ridiculous.’ I’m like, ‘You’re in high school. If you don’t go to high school, what’s the point?’ ‘I look so ridiculous. We all look so ridiculous. We’re 100 years old, we shouldn’t be in high school.’ I said, ‘Well, there’s one more year to go, so suck it up.’”
Of course, while Plec says she’s targeting an end of season ceremony, things could change. “But look, what I’ve been saying a lot about this season to the people at the network and in general is that the writers and I are really focusing on that time in your life as your adolescence is coming to an end, that milestone of graduation, and you are making decisions: Do I leave home for good? Do I stay? Can I part with this town that’s been so important to me? Do I part with these people who have been so important to me? Am I going out into the world and starting a life and growing up? Or am I gonna hide here where I’m comfortable even if it’s not the best place for me? There’s a lot of great questions that come along with graduation that our characters — both human and supernatural — are gonna be asking themselves about who they are, who they’re supposed to be, and what they’re supposed to do with their life moving forward.”
Dobrev, who sees Elena not only transitioning into a vampire this season but also into her womanhood, is definitely on board with the graduation plan. “Prom. Hello. Pretty dresses. Corsages,” she jokes. “But it is gonna be nice. Paul’s right. We’re all growing with the show and we’re becoming adults, and we can only play high school for so long and be believable and also challenged. I think it’s definitely time, and it’ll be a good button for the end of the season and for the next phase of The Vampire Diaries.”

Returning for its fourth season, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is the story of two vampire brothers, obsessed with the same girl, in a small town where supernatural beings live in secret amongst its residents. In season one, Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder), returned to their hometown of Mystic Falls, Virginia, for very different reasons. Stefan was determined to get to know Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev), who bears a striking resemblance to Katherine Pierce (also played by Dobrev), the beautiful but ruthless vampire the brothers knew and loved — in 1864. Damon, on the other hand, was intent on releasing Katherine from the tomb where he believed she was trapped by a witch’s spell all those years ago. The explosive season finale set a plan in motion that resulted in Katherine’s return.
In season two, Katherine’s appearance threw a wrench into the Stefan/Elena/Damon love triangle. The brothers later faced their greatest challenge yet — the arrivals of Elijah (guest star Daniel Gillies) and Klaus (Joseph Morgan), two of the powerful “Original” vampires. Klaus was seemingly focused on breaking the “Sun and Moon” curse by sacrificing Elena. Ultimately, Klaus’ sacrifice ritual proved deadly not for Elena but for her Aunt Jenna (Sara Canning), whose violent death devastated both her family and her boyfriend, Alaric Saltzman (Matt Davis), who had also become a trusted friend and guardian to Elena and her brother Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen).
Season three revealed the history of Klaus and The Original Family, as well as the surprising friendship Klaus and his sister Rebekah (guest star Claire Holt) shared with Stefan decades earlier. Klaus’ return led to Stefan’s descent back to his violent “Ripper” ways. Elena and Damon worked to bring Stefan back from the edge, even as they struggled with the guilt of their growing bond. Meanwhile, Klaus found himself irresistibly drawn to Caroline Forbes (Candice Accola), forcing her boyfriend, the werewolf Tyler Lockwood (Michael Trevino), to break his sire-bond to Klaus and claim Caroline as his own. A new threat to the Original siblings came from their own mother, Esther (guest star Alice Evans), who was determined to rid the world of the plague of vampires. Using witchcraft and the unwilling help of Bonnie Bennett (Kat Graham), Esther turned Alaric into a powerful vampire whose only mission was to hunt down and destroy other vampires – the ultimate vampire hunter. Esther also linked Elena’s life to Alaric’s, making it impossible to kill Alaric while Elena is alive. In the chilling season finale, Elena’s longtime friend Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig) tried to get Elena out of town to keep her safe, but Rebekah took matters into her own hands and caused Matt’s truck to plunge off a bridge, trapping Matt and Elena underwater. Despite Stefan’s attempts to save them both, he was only able to get Matt to the surface in time, and Elena drowned, causing Alaric’s death as well. Devastated by this unthinkable loss, Stefan, Damon and all their friends soon discover another horrible truth – thanks to the well-meaning efforts of Dr. Meredith Fell (guest star Torrey DeVitto), Elena died with vampire blood in her system.
Season Four begins with the knowledge that everything is in transition. Elena faces her worst nightmare when she awakens after the accident and finds she must now endure the terrifying transition to become a vampire – or face certain death. Stefan and Damon are torn even further apart over how to help Elena adjust to a life she never wanted, and everyone has to cope with the chaos Alaric created when he outed the vampires and their supporters to the Mystic Falls Council and local church leaders. Despite everything that has happened to them, as Elena and her friends enter into the final stretch of high school before graduation sends them off on different paths, they feel the bond to their home town of Mystic Falls take on a deeper meaning when a new mysterious villain is introduced who seems intent on destroying it.
Based on the series of books by L. J. Smith, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES is from Bonanza Productions Inc., Outerbanks Entertainment and Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios with executive producers Kevin Williamson (“Scream,” “Dawson’s Creek”), Julie Plec (“Kyle XY,” “Wasteland”), Leslie Morgenstein (“Gossip Girl,” “Private”) and Bob Levy (“Gossip Girl,” “Privileged”).
