The Vampire Diaries - Spoiler From TV Guide - 15th April 2014

Stelena. Vampire Diaries. Anything?

Stefan-Elena fans will love this week's episode, which features a ton of what-if scenes between the duo. The downside is that the scenes are all dreams related to the doppelganger prophecy, which will finally be fully explained! Elsewhere, look for a familiar face to pop up —but the character's return won't bring good news.

The Originals - Nathan Parsons Interview

Even in its first season, The Originals is pretty complicated. How familiar were you with it when you joined?
I was familiar with the general mythology from The Vampire Diaries, because I’d met Julie Plec and a few of the executive producers when I read for a few parts. Actually, I read for one of the vampires back whenThe Originals was casting as a pilot. I kept myself up to date on the mythology, so when they called again for the part of Jackson, it wasn’t tough to catch up.
You were almost a vampire? Do you remember which one you read for?
I don’t, unfortunately. They actually don’t tell you the names when you go in. It’s all very secretive.
Let’s talk Hayley and Jackson. What’s really going on there?
Their relationship is complicated. Jackson has watched Hayley as a wolf for years, so he’s had a lot of time to get to know her. When the curse was broken and he finally got to talk to her in person, he’d built up an entire relationship in his head. So for him to just say, “Hey, I’m that wolf that’s been watching you and we’re supposed to be married,” that was a lot to throw at her at once. I think she was a little taken aback. Also, the reality is starting to set in for Jackson: Hayley is pregnant with Klaus’ child. Nothing ever goes the way you plan it.
The Originals Jackson HayleyJackson seems to care about Hayley, but he also needs her for political reasons. How will he balance his emotions with his politics?
There’s a way, I think, to achieve both. You want the pack to be strong and you want Hayley to be the queen, but she also has a relationship with the vampires. I think Jackson will use that relationship to get back into the good graces of the original vampires. It’s a tough line to walk; you want the personal relationship, but you also need the political relationship.
Should we expect tension between Jackson and Elijah, Hayley’s two men?
I think so. Generally, vampires don’t like werewolves, and werewolves hate vampires. Every time I see one, I want to kill them. But Elijah’s relationship with Hayley does make things complicated. Plus, the originals are the ones in power. I don’t think the original vampires are as bad as Marcel was — Elijah seems like a much smarter leader — so maybe this is a relationship we can deal with, once we’ve gotten over that gut instinct.
We’ll also be meeting some of Klaus’ werewolf relatives soon. Will they get along with Jackson’s pack?
Well, we’re all wolves at the end of the day. I’m not sure how their interaction is going to go down, though. We’re starting to learn more about this Crescent pack, but we haven’t really examined the greater werewolf culture yet. We haven’t seen how they interact with the other packs, and I’m curious to see how that develops.
Did you ever think you’d be discussing “the greater werewolf culture” in your career?
[Laughs] You know, I can’t say that ever came up in acting class.
Generally speaking, where is the season headed as we approach the finale next month?
Well, we’ve met the original vampires, now we’re going to start to learn about the original werewolves and we also have some really old original witches on the show now. Basically, everyone is going to butt heads. They all want peace, but they all want it on their own terms. We’re starting to see all of it spiral out of control, as much as Klaus and Elijah are trying to keep it together. Their world is being ripped apart. I can’t wait for the season finale because, the way things are boiling up now, I know it’s going to be explosive.

Any TVD goodies to share?!

We're hearing Stelena fans will not want to miss Thursday night's episode, even if there's a slight twist to all the Stefan and Elena goodness. But is there hope for a legitimate reunion between the duo? "Those two are like perpetually a pendulum that swings. There's really no algorithm," Paul Wesley says. "I don't think anything that happens is permanent, so the answer to that question is that I'm sure they'll work it out in the end."

Elijah and Hayley: Is it ever going to happen on The Originals?

As much as we'd like to see it, Phoebe Tonkin doesn't think it's in the cards any time soon. "No matter what world you live in, hooking up with your baby daddy's brother is not ideal," she says. "She isn't putting up with bullsh-- from two immortal brothers who try to boss her around. [So], I don't think she's thinking of romances right now."

Another hiatus for The Vampire Diaries?! Anything you can give us to hold us over?
Sure, but it's not exactly good news! As the war between the witches and the Travelers heats up, our heroes will learn that quite a few Mystic Falls residents — including more than one regular character — have Passengers in them. So, ask yourself this: Who do the Travelers need to control?

The Originals - Spoiler From E! Online - 7th April 2014

The Originals is the only thing that gets me through me week. Scoop me!

Double, double, toil and trouble! The witchy goodness is only going to keep getting better and better in New Orleans. We'll soon be reunited with Cassie, one of the girl sacrificed in the Harvest ceremony, and one of the most ruthless young witches we've ever seen. Better watch out Klaus, this one does not seem to share Davina's naiveté—she's dangerous.
