The Vampire Diaries - Spoiler From EW - 29th August 2014

Any word on how long until Damon’s back in Mystic Falls on The Vampire Diaries?

Since Mystic Falls is still being cloaked by the Travelers’ spell that will kill any vampire who steps foot in town, probably not anytime soon. However, Damon could actually come face-to-face with someone in the land of the living fairly quickly. (And no, that’s not counting Elena using some witchy drug to hallucinate him.) Ian Somerhalder teased that brother bonding isn’t far off. “I had some really great scenes with Paul [Wesley] not too long ago, like last week,” he says. “You definitely see some great stuff with those boys. It’s good when they’re not at one another’s throats.” So unless Stefan joins Elena’s drug trip, it sounds like we could have a Salvatore reunion within the first batch of episodes.

The Originals - Spoiler From TV Line - 19th August 2014

Any scoop on what baby Hope will be up to in Season 2 of The Originals?

Sorry, nothing on that particular tyke, but it sounds like someone else will have babies on the brain. Producers are currently casting Ingrid, a supposedly barren young woman who will stop at nothing to be with-child — including lying to her husband. (Gee, if only there were a few witches in town who might be able to help her out….)

The Originals - Spoiler From TV Guide - 17th August 2014

Where We Left Off: After being kidnapped by the witches, Hayley gave birth, was immediately killed, but came back to life as a hybrid. In order to save her and Klaus' child, the two made the heartbreaking decision to give baby Hope to Rebekah with help from Marcel — who was then compelled to forget the baby is alive. Finally, not only has the Guerrera pack taken back control of the French Quarter, but Original family members Esther and presumably Finn returned via new bodies in the last few minutes.

What's Next: Esther will make her presence known fast, only aiding to Klaus' destructive rampage. "Klaus has decided that he will only imagine a day when he'll be reunited with Hope while he destroys everyone keeping that child away from him," executive producer Michael Narducci tells us. "So he will make everyone pay." With regard to his relationship with former protégé Marcel, Narducci adds that they're in a really good place. "Klaus has an agenda [and] he knows that of all the allies he could have, Marcel knows the city, knows the layout, the politics and Marcel back in the 1920s and '30s was able to take out the wolves. So if Klaus wants to deal with the Guerreras he'll need someone who knows how to do that." As for Davina's decision to bring back Mikael, she'll have the two to deal with when they find out what she's done. Hayley too will be shattered, but ready to enact revenge, and although she and Elijah had finally kissed before the finale, don't expect that coupling any time soon.

The Vampire Diaries - Spoiler From TV Guide - 17th August 2014

Where We Left Off: In a plan to save the Other Side, Damon with Elena caused a massive explosion to kill all the Travelers. Once on the Other Side, Liv enacted a resurrection spell, allowing Stefan, Elena, Enzo and Alaric to cross back through Bonnie. But when Liv's brother Luke saw it was killing her, he put an end to the spell seconds before Damon could come back to life. During the final moments, Damon and Bonnie were left standing hand-in-hand awaiting their final fate.

What's Next: After a big time jump, the premiere opens with Bonnie and Damon still gone. While their whereabouts will be revealed quickly, the question of what happened while they were there will be a season-long arc. Elena will be grieving over the loss of Damon by making some surprising choices and bonding with Stefan and Alaric, who does some bonding of his own with a woman he meets. Get ready for a handful of new faces, including a militia leader (Colin Ferguson) and a tough doctor at the university hospital (Jodi Lyn O'Keefe). Matt will be thriving as he gets involved in the new magic-less community, while Tyler, now back to a human with the werewolf gene, will return to his testosterone-filled, hard-headed personality. Will he reconnect with Caroline, whom executive producer Julie Plec says will take the loss of Bonnie and Damon "in a weird way the hardest"?

The Originals - Casting News

Colin Woodell will recur on the second season of The CW’s The Originals playing a “badass” werewolf named Aiden. 
A lieutenant in New Orleans’ leading werewolf pack, Aiden isn’t opposed to teaming up with witches if they can help him take down vampires and keep his family safe. Needless to say, you can expect to see him forming a few “dangerous alliances” during his stint on the show, which begins with Episode 4.

The Vampire Diaries - Spoiler From TV Guide - 12th August 2014

What can you tell me about the new season of The Vampire Diaries?

When executive producer Julie Plec told us that the mystery of where Bonnie and Damon are would be answered quickly, she wasn't lying: You'll definitely know before the end of the second episode. But pay close attention: Although the setting may look familiar, the duo is definitely in a place that's foreign to them. Perhaps it's not the where that matters at all!

The Vampire Diaries - Spoiler From E! Online - 12th August 2014

Do you have any news on who will be the new Big Bad on #TVD?

You betcha! (This show is not Fargo.) I posed that very question to TVD's fancy-pants boss Julie Plec in between begging for her to keep Alaric alive forever and badgering her for scoop on when Delena will reunite. "There is a big bad. it's a long, slow-burn mythology that will unfold over the course of the entire season and will really impact each of our character in deep ways and it's smart and it's interesting and it's small, which I like," she teases. "Instead of trying to top ourselves year to year, we try to scale back and see if we can keep it really personal and rooted in character." Right. But back to that whole Delena thing...

The Originals - Spoiler From TV Line - 7th August 2014

I can’t wait to see Daniel Sharman on The Originals. Any other new faces we should be looking out for?

You’re not alone in your excitement, and the former Teen Wolf star certainly won’t be the season’s sole addition. Episode 6 will introduce us to a “respected and feared” werewolf pack leader. What sets this guy apart from the rest of the Big Easy’s lycanthropes? He’ll spend quite a bit of (non-romantic) time with Davina, teaching her how to extend her power. In short, Klaus will not be a fan of this guy.

The Originals - Spoiler From TV Guide - 5th August 2014

I'd like some Marcel scoop for the upcoming season of The Originals.

Him reconciling with Klaus wasn't enough? I hear Marcel will actually form a new ally in Season 2. "Marcel is going to have his own agenda with what to do now that his community has been decimated," executive producer Michael Narducci says. "He finds very quickly a connection to Josh." I wonder how Davina will feel about her BFF cozying up to Marcel...

The Vampire Diaries - Spoiler From TV Guide - 5th August 2014

What is coming up for Caroline on The Vampire Diaries?

It should come as no surprise that the most anal-retentive vampire will have specific thoughts on how to soldier through the finale's tragedies. "She is trying to hold the whole group together and is just, in her mind, failing miserably and really struggling," executive producer Julie Plec says. Her job will be made especially difficult when it comes to dealing with Stefan, who "reacts to Damon's loss in ways we wouldn't expect," Plec teases.

The Originals - Spoiler From TV Line - 5th August 2014

I don’t care about Hayley and Elijah on The Originals. I want to know about Mikael and Esther! What’s that crazy couple up to in Season 2?

Funny you should refer to them as a couple as their relationship is going to be explored big-time in the coming season. “We know about their marriage, and we know that they made their kids into vampires, but do they like each other?” executive producer Julie Plec muses. “Do they hate each other? We’re having so much fun writing the history of Esther and Mikael right now.” Sounds like their future is just as mysterious as their past.

The Originals - Spoiler From E! Online - 5th August 2014

Davina has become such a little badass on The Originals! What can we expect to see for New Orleans' best witch next season?

A much stronger (and funnier!) Davina, which we are so down with. "It's really cool to see little Davina completely controlling him," Danielle Campbell teased of Davina and Mikael's buddy sitcom-esque dynamic in season two. "They have a lot of banter. It's just fun. Davina is just completely sarcastic with him and doesn't care about anything he's saying." But he won't be the only new guy in her life as Davina is getting a new love interest. "There's a lot to feel out with it, so she's taking her time," Campbell said of the young witch's slow-burn of a new romance with a certain Teen Wolf guest star.

The Originals - Spoiler From TV Guide - 29th July 2014

Please tell me Marcel and Klaus will be buddies in Season 2 of The Originals!

I have good news for you! "Marcel and Klaus are in a really good place," executive producer Michael Narducci says, hinting that Marcel's experience fighting werewolves is valuable. "Klaus has an agenda. ... If Klaus wants to deal with the Guerreras, he'll need someone who knows how to do that." Though Marcel won't remember that he helped save the Baby Hope, he and Klaus "will come to terms with one another in a really cool way," Narducci teases.

The Vampire Diaries - Spoiler From TV Guide - 22nd July 2014

Loved all the Damon-Elena scoop, but what about my boys Matt and Tyler on The Vampire Diaries?

Our favorite quarterback is doing just fine. "He misses his friends, but he's dealing with his grief in his own way and he's channelling it into something very positive by getting involved in the community and really trying to make something of himself," executive producer Julie Plec says. "So he's thriving, ironically, in the absence of the supernatural elements in Mystic Falls." As for Tyler, Plec adds, "Tyler is back to being a guy with a werewolf curse. He's been down this road, and it's really difficult and he's got testosterone and machismo, so how does he keep himself together? He'll find help in some fun sources."

The Originals - Spoiler From E! Online - 22nd Juy 2014

Give me some scoop on my favorite couple on TV: Hayley and Elijah on The Originals!

Come on, is there really time for romance in NoLA?! "Elijah should be nervous about a lot of things. Elijah is going to go through some s--t this year at the beginning of the season,"Julie Plec told us. "It's not going to be all puppy dogs and rainbows for him at all." And one thing he'll definitely have to worry about? Hayley "reconnecting" with Jackson, as Nathan Parsons "will make his return about six episodes in."

The Originals - Season 2 Scoop From Julie Plec & Michael Narducci

HAYLIJAH | Unfortunately, it sounds like Hayley and Elijah’s relationship will be taking a step back in Season 2. “Hayley and Klaus are the only two hybrids in existence now, so Elijah will inevitably wonder, ‘Is there a connection between my brother and Hayley that I could never surpass?’” Narducci explained. “There’s going to be some interesting friction. Ultimately, Elijah is going to have to decide, ‘Do I want to help this girl?’”
KLAUS: THE EARLY YEARS | Season 2, Narducci explained, is “all about confronting the sins of the past. We’re very much defined by our parents, but as we become adults, we begin to choose our own paths. … Klaus is very much a product of his abusive father, and very much a product of his mother.” In going deeper into Klaus’ moral origins, we’ll see “flashbacks to when he was a child,” as well as “right before he became a vampire.” All of this will “examine what his relationship was with his mother, and the sense of betrayal that he felt when she came back from the dead and judged him as an abomination.”
davina-season-2A WITCH’S CONFLICT | Davina’s agenda, Narducci explained, is going to unfold in an interesting way this fall: “She has Mikael under her control, and she wants Klaus to suffer — but she also loves Josh and Marcel, and she knows they’re connected to Klaus. She’s going to have to be smart about what she ultimately decides to do with Mikael.” As for which of Klaus and Elijah’s brothers Esther brought back with her, the EPs are remaining tight-lipped for now.
WHAT’S IN A NAME? | The explanation behind the season premiere’s title, “Rebirth,” is two-fold, according to Plec. Not only is it indicative of the episode’s theme — the loss of Klaus’ baby, the start of his new life, etc. — but it also has a special meaning for the show, itself. “Every title we use, we try to make it a song title from New Orleans or an artist from New Orleans,” Plec said. “Rebirth is one of the best brass bands in New Orleans, and they were in our pilot. We’ve been waiting to use that title for 22 episodes.”
