As we mentioned earlier, Ian Somehalder & Caroline Dries held a Q&A after a screening of The Vampire Diaries “Man on Fire” the other day. Check out what they had to say is to come after last night’s shocking death!

Enzo’s next move via EW:

“His story isn’t over — he’s going to become kind of this ghost villain moving forward and we’ll see him all the way through the finale as the bad guy,” divulged Dries. “He’s pissed that he’s dead, but that’s amplified by the fact that around him, people are being sucked into the ether just like Vicki, so his concern is, ‘I want out.’”

So exactly just how much damage can Enzo cause from the other side while trying to escape whatever afterlife he’s in? “You just wait, you just wait and see — he’s determined to make Damon’s life and Stefan’s life a living hell,” Dries says cryptically.

Paul Wesley spoke with Zap2It about tonight’s episode, in which Paul Wesley directed. He talks about The Other side and some “easter eggs” (a common theme) during the vision sequences.

“Now that the Travelers brought Markos back things are starting to fall apart,” Wesley says. “I’ve been able to do some really cool visual stuff with the Other Side falling apart and disintegrating. I’m so glad I got to recreate the visual aesthetic of the Other Side because it was so interesting to me, getting to work with the production designer and the creative team to try to make a new way of telling the Other Side’s story.”

And for any super fans out there, keep your eyes peeled for a common theme Wesley wove into his vision scenes like easter eggs. “There’s an interesting thing I did in some of the visions, and I wonder if anyone will pick up on it,” Wesley says. “It’s not like a big deal, and I don’t want to sound pretentious but there’s kind of an interesting theme in the vision sequences that I’ll be curious to see if anyone picks up on. It’s a fun little clue for the fans.”

Check out these great interviews with Paul Wesley from TV Guide and THR. Paul talks about his recent directorial debut with tonight’s episode “Resident Evil” and some of the challenges he faced. Read an excerpt from each interview below then head over to both sites for the full interviews!

via TV Guide:

Although Wesley has been learning about the process for a while now, finally taking charge behind the camera didn’t come without its challenges. The biggest surprise? How willing he had to be to compromise. “You read something and you have a good idealistic vision of what it should be and then you get [to location] and the set isn’t exactly what you wanted it to look like or the actor has a different interpretation,” Wesley says. “So there’s an interesting compromise you have to make as a director. You have to be open to that and if you’re not you can get yourself into a lot of trouble. You have to be open to change at any moment.”

via THR:

But because of his on-camera responsibilities as a series lead, Wesley’s one regret was not being unable to be present in the editing room to see his episode become fully realized. After sending off the footage to the editors to assemble, Wesley was only able to offer “a couple of notes” over email. “That was probably the most frustrating part of it,” he admits.

Another unexpected hiccup was weather-related. In February, Atlanta was hit with a massive winter storm that forced shutdowns on numerous productions in the area, including Vampire Diaries. The show went dark for a few days. “It was a really long, tedious shoot with weather issues, changing schedules,” Wesley recalls. But the production halt was actually a blessing in disguise, he says, affording him more time to prepare.
