Here’s the trailer for next week’s episode “Kill or Be Killed”. Looks like a lot will go down, what did you guys think of tonight’s episode? Did you find yourself feeling sorry for Katherine?

Here’s a great interview with Kat Graham by Crushable. She talks about what the girls might go as for Halloween..Spice Girls! Drinking soda while eating Pop Rocks and some predictions.

Crushable: Any plans for Halloween?

Kat: I think the girls from the cast and I are going to stay in Atlanta this year. I’m really hoping we can pull off the Spice Girls for a costume. I really want to be Scary Spice, finally, after all these years!

Crushable: Ha, Mel B.! She has the new reality show out.

Kat: I know, I really want to watch it and see how accurate I am.

Crushable: It’s a Scary World.

Kat: It’s a Scary World, with Mel B.! And Nina (Dobrev) would be Posh, and Kayla Ewell would be sporty, and Candice Accola would be Baby.

Crushable: We might be going as the two guys from Mythbusters.

Kat: What’s that?

Crushable: I don’t know…these two guys go around and I think…bust myths?

Kat: Oh, I know one. Pop rocks and soda won’t kill you. I didn’t even know that they might, I only heard about it after I had already done it.

Crushable: Wait, you just tried to drink soda while eating Pop Rocks without knowing that was an urban legend?

Kat: Yeah! Why not?

TV Fanatic has rolled out another Vampire Diaries cast interview today, this time with the lovely Candice Accola. She dishes on Caroline’s life as a vampire.

Caroline is one bad-ass vamp! Pretty sure everyone fell in love with vampire Caroline from the “you suck” line.
Yes she is! Julie Plec actually told me about that line before we got that script. She was talking about it since they had already plotted out that episode. I anticipated that line for a while, so I was very excited to shoot it.

What can we look for in season two?
Action, action, action. This season is very fast-paced. The first season told the story, and second season… just hold on for the ride.

Do you think Caroline took it easy on Damon, considering everything he put her through?
Definitely. At the same time, Caroline is very new to this whole world of being a vampire and what she’s capable of and what she’s not capable of. In order to become a vampire, part of you dies. It’s a very, traumatizing thing. That fact that Damon has already tried to kill her again… she doesn’t know how powerful he is. In her mind, what if he’s as powerful as Katherine? I think there’s only so much playing with fire you want to do when you’re already half dead. It’d be a little scary to push his buttons too much until she knows what she’s capable of, and more importantly what he is capable of.

Jarett of PopWrap caught up with Nina Dobrev and she spills quite a bit about tonight’s episode and talks about her recent injury.

PW: I’ll say — watching you pull double duty this season. Has it been fun playing two characters full time?
Nina: It’s been really intense but in a good way. Every single day is a constant challenge and I’m never bored or just sitting around. I’m always being stimulated and these characters are so much fun. Going through all the different shades of playing sweet Elena while also being so ambiguous, spontaneous and crazy as Katherine – it’s really, really cool.

PW: Everyone seems really amped about tonight’s flashback — are you?
Nina: I’m so excited for everyone to see it – it’s one of my favorite episodes so far. It’s very Elena/Katherine heavy. It’s all the elements of everything I love in one episode. We worked so hard and you’ll see that episode kind of leads up to my injury – there are two scenes I’m not in.

PW: So we can expect some Nina stunts tonight then?
Nina: It’s a lot of harness work. This year they’ve let me be suspended in midair and there’s animal work. I’ve been interacting with wild dangerous animals, which is cool. And it’s funny because they expect me to be squeamish because I’m a girl but I promise you there were crew men cowering and running away while I’m playing with these animals.

PW: What can you tease about tonight’s episode?
Nina: It seems like every time we go back to the 1864, we learn more from someone else’s perspective – and now it’s Katherine’s turn to tell the story. What she did, how she did it, why she did it and how it affected everything. It’s interesting to see how things can be misconstrued and twist your whole world. It’s going to change every character’s world once they find out. It’s also interesting to see Katherine toy with everyone. This episode is all about that. She’s working all the angles and blindsiding everyone. She’s got the upper hand.

Thanks to Matt for alerting us to the TV Fanatic’s interview with Ian Somerhalder. Does he think he’ll ever be nominated for an Emmy? Find out what he says!

Damon has grown from being such a sweet person, as we see in flashbacks, to someone so full of anger.

I think what’s sad about Damon is that he’s such a tortured character. In life, we use humor as a band aid; it’s a medicine for pain, which is why comedians are the most miserable people you’ve ever met. These two brothers have dealt with a pretty substantial amount of pain in their lives, like anybody, except it’s drawn out over a century and a half. I think now, Damon feels, if anything, just stupid. You know when you do something you know is your fault and you’ve suffered from it? You just want to slap yourself.

There are petitions online that want you to be nominated for an Emmy.

Yeah, that’s not gonna happen. Damon being [Entertainment Weekly‘s] Sexiest Beast and me being nominated for an Emmy are two very different things. If I had that mind compulsion thing that Damon had I could probably go to the Academy and just brainwash them all.

If Stefan and Elena’s relationship is so great, why do you think there are so many Delena fans out there?

I don’t know. I think the only difference is, Stefan’s a much more sound individual. I just think the only reason is, Stefan’s got so much to deal with… with his brother, protecting his girlfriend, all of this shit, that Damon just has a lot more fun, and I think Stefan is just so concerned with protecting or making everything right, that Elena ends up having more fun with Damon.

MTV’s Hollywood Crush caught up with Ian Somerhalder and discussed the possibility of a musical episode. Check it!

For today’s installment, we bring you Ian’s thoughts on his new “Sexy Beast” status, hazing from his co-stars and the answer to an excellent reader-submitted question: Would he consider doing a musical episode?

“I would do a musical episode in a heartbeat!” Ian exclaimed, then revealed that one of his fellow cast members has a hidden talent that would be perfect for a musical. “Zach Roerig [aka Matt] is a tap dancer,” he said. “Who would’ve thought?”

So what would be Damon’s go-to musical number?

“I don’t know… Damon would be more like the barber of Fleet Street [a la “Sweeney Todd”]. He would be the guy who sings as he cuts people’s arms off,” he said matter-of-factly—which made us laugh out loud. “Full, Johnny Depp style.”

Bad Moon Rising marks the big unveiling of the new creature on Mystic Falls supernatural block, and three episodes into Season 2, already one thing is clear: if you turned up to the TVD plot party with particular expectations, prepare to check them at the door by the time the opening credits have rolled.

That being the case, thank goodness we kicked this one off by welcoming back the much beloved and arguably hottest history teacher in the history of education.

MOMENT #1: WELCOME BACK, HOTTER

Damon calls Alaric over (who arrives complete with a new coif that, if we’re honest, belongs in a Head and Shoulders ad) in order to shed some light on the Lockwoods – not through his own knowledge of Mystic Falls, but through Isobel’s research at Duke. The research includes information Isobel had collated not only about vampires but – much to the surprise of everyone present – werewolves. Elena is very curious about this, not in the least because she knows the research her birth mother has undertaken will more than likely yield results about her lineage, and how that fits in with Katherine. Damon however, remains skeptical, but he knows that Isobel’s research holds more than one answer that he’s searching for.

Meanwhile, Mason Lockwood is heading out for an apparent run, not realising that his nephew is following him to what we eventually see is a very, very old underground cellar. Tyler waits for his chance, and ventures underground to explore the cellar. Inside he is visibly troubled by what he finds: chains and harnesses hang off the stone, and a claw mark has been gashed into the wall.

Elsewhere, Matt visits Caroline. While he stands at the door knocking, she stands separated from the door by a big shaft of sunlight. She tests it, and again she begins to burn. Unable to answer without revealing her new condition, so she hides in the house, pretending she’s not there when he then calls her phone and leaves a message asking her to go to Tyler’s party at the waterhole.

As she’s packing to leave, Elena & Stefan discuss her road trip to Duke with Alaric and Damon. Stefan hates the fact that she has to, but he tells her to go – he will stay and take care of Caroline.

Down in the hall, Alaric and Jenna speak. He tries to apologise for not being around more since their kiss, but she tells him she doesn’t want an apology. He just needs to go deal with his past and Isobel – to do what he needs to do.

Now back at the mansion, Tyler asks his mother about ruins. Carol says that they were an part of the original Lockwood plantation house until it burned down. When he queries the existence of the cellar – she says nobody speaks about it, because it still reminds people about slave days of the American south. Mason walks in on their conversation. He doesn’t quite hide the put out look on his face when he learns Tyler has been asking bout the area surrounding the cellar her he has been secretly using.
