Ian Somerhalder dishes on The Vampire Diaries season 3 finale in this video interview with THR. *Spoiler Alert*
E!Online caught up with Daniel Gillies to chat about his new foundation he started for a 2 year old little boy named Isaias who’s battling a rare form of cancer. Daniel also offered some Vampire Diaries finale scoop. Enjoy the excerpt below, then head on over to E!Online to read more about Isaias, how you can help and what we can expect in The Vampire Diaries season finale.
Of course, we had to ask Daniel about the Vampire Diaries upcoming season three finale, which yes, he will he a part of. “I’m coming back. There’s a hot mess in Mystic Falls. It’s a hot mess! We need a little Elijah to restore some order,” Daniel teases of his reappearance.
While Daniel couldn’t say too much about the finale, he warns fans to “brace” themselves as the episode is “just going to rock the foundation of the fandom. It’s stunning what the writers have done. I love what [executive producer] Julie Plec has done. I’m as eager as the fans to see how it evolves. It’s deeply tragic. You can expect some tragedy. That’s all I can really say. Whatever’s happening with this group of people is about to be changed forever.”
Thanks to @xLuvDamonx for the heads up! The CW has released two preview clips for the much anticipated season 3 finale “The Departed”. I have not watched them…I’m trying to remain spoiler free, as much as a person that runs a TVD website can. And by the looks of the video screencaps, they look pretty darn spoilery! ;) Thanks to MiI2aCIe for posting! Enjoy!

Wow! What an intense episode! What did you guys think? Let us know in the comments. But first check out the extended preview for the season 3 finale titled “The Departed”.
Once again, Julie Plec previews tonight’s episode “Before Sunset”. *Spoiler Alert* for those wanting to remain spoiler-free.
Check out this super spoilery Vampire Diaries Bite from TV Guide. Find out what Alaric is up to in tonight’s episode…
More spoilery goodness is coming in. First, E!Online adds more scoop from Julie Plec about the anticipated flashback of the Wickery Bridge accident in the season finale!
“The Departed” will flash back to the night Elena’s parents drove off the Wickery Bridge—and executive producer Julie Plec assures us that no supernatural elements factored into their death. “This episode isn’t about peeling back a layer of the mythology onion. We actually will get a little flash of something else that happened during that time, that we never even really considered, and it’s more of an emotional thing than it is a suspense thing,” she says. On the love triangle side of things, Ian Somerhalder reveals to us that the “losing” brother agrees to leave Mystic Falls after Elena makes her choice.
And TV Guide‘s Mega Buzz has some interesting Boonie scoop!
What’s going to happen to Bonnie on The Vampire Diaries? — Sally
NATALIE: Sure, she was bitten by Alaric, but that doesn’t mean she’s going to go the way her mother did — in fact, Damon will see to that by saving her life. However, their Alaric issues are much more pressing since he’s immortal now. Can the spell be reversed? Yes, but Bonnie doesn’t know how to do that particular “kill your ex-history teacher who’s now a vampire-hunting vampire” spell… yet. We’re guessing that her witch-turned-vampire mother might be able to help her though.
TV Line‘s Ausiello has some Vampire Diaries Spoilers for us! Some finale scoop and will Katherine return?
Question: Please, give me something about the Vampire Diaries season finale. I hope we will see new villain there. —Jake
Ausiello: New blood is headed to Mystic Falls, but it probably won’t arrive until the fall. “We definitely have some exciting new characters that we’re talking about for next year,” previews exec producer Julie Plec. “And, of course, we’ve got our already enormous ensemble to make sure we keep servicing properly.” Speaking of the VD finale, did you see these?!
Question: Any chance Katherine will resurface before the finale of Vampire Diaries? —Allie
Ausiello: Not unless a certain someone is taken out first. “You will not see nor hear of Katherine until Klaus is gone for good,” says Plec. “His survival ties into her appearance, or lack thereof.” As for whether Original vamp Elijah will return this season, Plec coyly offers a “Maybe.”
This is it guys! Our very last set of episode stills for The Vampire Diaries Season 3! In “The Departed”, we flashback to Elena’s life before Stefan and Damon Salvatore. Check out these stills courtesy of the CW, and TV Overmind.
E!Online has some scoop on our favorite Big Bad Hybrid. Check it!
AlexJohnJohnson: Vampire Diaries, pretty pretty please?
How about some scoop on Klaus? Good? Good. The OG hybrid will have a “heroic moment” in Thursday’s episode, but in a classic Klaus move, it’ll be followed by “something so horrible, you’re like, ‘Man, what’s wrong with you?!'” teases executive producer Julie Plec. “Klaus will never be a hero, but that’s not to say he won’t do heroic things.” So what’s Klaus’ next move now that his mother has successfully created the ultimate vampire hunter? “This is a second call of arms to Klaus, who may have gotten distracted by pretty blondes and paintings and horses,” Plec says. “This is the reminder that this guy means business, and he’s not going to let his guard down again. It’s a nice reboot of the villain.” Hero and villain all wrapped in one devilishly handsome British hybrid? Only on TVD!

LOCAL ARTIST FEATURED
With his landscapes featured in The Hermitage, local artist in residence Klaus Mikaelson is rumored to be undertaking a vast wall mural at his palatial home, Fortress Klaus. MFM’s art critic got a glimpse, and it seemed a tad dark and morose for a landscape! Our interview with the artisan was interrupted by his tardy sister/mother, Rebekah/Esther. Apparently PsychoRic didn’t want to hand over the last of the White Oak Stakes, nicknamed The Doomsday Stake last edition. Bexter *wink* was successful, though. Such a charmer. Klaus did the honors and pitched the evil weapon in the fireplace. Or did he? But lo and behold, what will Mystic Falls do for culture in the near future?
We now have a preview clip for next week’s episode “Before Sunset”. Klaus comes a knockin’…
As always, thanks so much to music supervisor Chris Mollere for posting the song list from last night’s episode “Do Not Go Gentle”.
