Fifty Shades of Grayson

Caroline Dries has been making the rounds with more scoop from THR, Zap2It and TV Fanatic. Check out what she had to say!

Via THR:

What is the overarching theme for the fifth season that has helped shape the arcs?

We knew that it would be a season of Elena dating Damon and what does it means to date the bad boy. And if you date Damon, you date all of his baggage too. You have to believe in him and be able to justify his backstory to even love him. A lot of it for Elena is meant to be this gray area: “Am I changing because of my boyfriend or can I find a way to bring the light out of him?” The gray area is what we were trying to go for thematically. We wanted to pay attention to Damon’s backstory and deepen his history on the show. That’s where we introduced Augustine. That also helps us connect him to Elena’s college world.

Via Zap2It:

And it turns out Damon hasn’t really changed at all, now that we found out he’s been killing Whitmores this entire time. How is that going to affect Damon and Elena’s relationship? Is this the end of “Delena”?

It’s obviously a lot for Elena to chew on when she found out. And she’s going to continue to be digesting that when she’s on this medical lab table that we saw her wake up on in Wes’ weird makeshift lab. So she’s trying to deal and come to terms with why he would do that or how she could be with somebody who was like that. And she actually has this surprising revelation at the end of how she decides to process that information and move forward with Damon.

Via TV Fanatic:

TV Fanatic: What can you tell us about the mid-season finale?

Caroline Dries: We left off with the big cliffhanger that Enzo is still alive and survived the fire, so the tension of the episode is what will happen when Damon realizes that Enzo is still alive and what is Enzo going to do to Damon. We’re introducing that relationship and it’s frightening because Enzo’s a little unhinged because he’s been experimented on for the last 70 years, so you can imagine being inside his brain. It’s also a very complicated relationship because he weirdly loves Damon because Damon was his friend for five years, his only friend for all of that time, so they share this dark past that nobody else will relate to.

TVF: So is Enzo the Augustine Vampire? Or are there multiple Augustine vampires?

CD: Well, that’s going to be revealed in this episode. This episode is meant to kind of answer all of the questions that we keyed up in the premiere when Megan was killed and how that all happened and why.

The Cell

TV Guide had a chance to chat with Vampire Diaries’ EP Caroline Dries about what we can expect and what’s to come in tomorrow night’s mid-season finale and upcoming episodes.

Elena learned some pretty heavy stuff about Damon. Will that cause irreparable damage for the couple?
Caroline Dries: 
Yeah. Elena found out that even during the beginnings of their relationship he was killing people. Weirdly, you can kind of justify what he was doing like, OK, he was tortured and had organs removed for five years, but, for Elena, can you imagine what that would be like for your boyfriend to have this whole other identity you had no idea about? That will have lasting effects. But as we saw at the end of last week’s episode,Elena isn’t in a position to be questioning Damon because here she is on this operating table about to go under what he went under so she has her own drama to deal with.

Through the flashbacks in the finale, will she find she knows more about her father’s past than she realized?
She’s kind of putting it together and it will emerge as, “Oh, I thought that was one thing and looking through it in a different lens my childhood was actually different than I lived it.” We get to learn more about [Gilbert] Grayson’s backstory.

Will the experiments that Wes does on Elena have lasting effects on her like it did Damon?
It actually strangely has the opposite effect on her and as she starts to learn more about why Augustine exists, she has a surprising take-away from it. That’s going to cause some friction between Damon and her.

Check out the latest interviews from a recent visit to the set of The Vampire Diaries from TV Line, Zap2It and E!Online.

Nina, Ian and Paul talk Delena tension, Stelena’s faded romance & Katherine via TV Line:

“It’s the elephant in the room,” describes Nina Dobrev during a TVLine visit to the show’s Atlanta set. “When you’re in a relationship and there’s an ex-boyfriend around, the significant other is always like, ‘Hmm, I wonder…’ There’s always that insecurity. They might say that it’s OK, but it’s in the back of their mind. It’s the same thing with Elena and Damon. He’s pretending to be OK with it, but he can’t unthink and unknow what he heard and what he knows now.”

Having that little destiny nugget tucked away in Damon’s mind “will always cause tension in their relationship moving forward,” continues the actress.

Caroline Dries and Paul Wesley clear up the Silas confusion via Zap2it:

Zap2it went straight to the “TVD” boss herself, executive producer Caroline Dries, while visiting the set in Atlanta to get some answers. “I feel like people were a little confused by that. But remember what happened with Katherine,” Dries tells Zap2it. “Silas ingested the cure from her and now she’s aging.”

Dries says the problem Katherine is currently dealing with will now happen to Silas, and everything shifts over one person. “That’s going to happen now that Amara drank the cure. She’s now mortal, and he’s now immortal but dying,” Dries says. “She just needed to be able to kill herself. It’s a very uplifting show. The CW was like, ‘Um, we get what you’re doing here but you have a number of characters trying to kill themselves. Just be careful.’”

Paul Wesley and Candice Accola on Steroline via E!Online:

“I can see why viewers of the show see a Caroline and Stefan connection of sorts; I don’t think the characters themselves really think anything of it, if I had to jump into the Caroline brain,” she explained. “But I can see them growing as friends, it’s really up to the writers where these characters are going to go.”

Plus, Caroline is totally Team Stelen according to Accola, who spilled, “I think Caroline truly believes Stefan and Elena are supposed to be together, so I can’t imagine her, at this time, trying to get in the way of that.”
