So excited for tonight! Check out this preview of tonight’s episode from Ian Somerhalder himself.
This past Saturday, I had the opportunity to attend the Wizard World Comic Con in New Orleans, LA where Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder were featured guests. The two Vampire Diaries hunks spent the day doing autographs and photo ops with fans, and then later treated them to a Q&A panel. I really enjoyed my time at this event. It was my first comic con. For those interested, Wizard World has already announced their date for next year, the New Orleans Comic Con is scheduled for January 8-10, 2016. I’ll definitely be attending! For those not in the NOLA area, check out the many other locations they will be visiting! In the meantime, check out some photos from the event below via Just Jared and thanks to Paul Wesley Chronicles for capturing some “Paul-centric” moments from the panel on video! I’ll update the post if any more video surfaces!
Today Ian Somerhalder, Joseph Morgan, Julie Plec, Caroline Dries and Michael Narducci, were on hand to talk TVD and The Originals at the 2015 Winter TCA Tour in Pasadena, CA. Thanks to HitFix we have a live blog breakdown of what was discussed at the panel, here’s an sneak peek, read the rest over at HitFix! (View more photos from the panel over at Zimbio)
What’s coming up in the spring on the shows? Dries says that the main through line will continue to be learning more about The Gemini Coven. Kai has now absorbed all of Mystic Falls’ magic and he wants to Merge with Jo and become a leader of the Gemini Coven. Dries says there will be a lot of drama “and death” continuing through the season. “We’ve got Damon and Elena finally working their way back towards each other,” Plec says, noting that Damon and Elena may actually achieve a comfortable relationship without internal conflict. “We get to see part of the relationship that we didn’t get to see the first time around,” Dries says of the four months of happiness we skipped before the start of the fifth season.

TV Guide has six teases from Nina Dobrev about tomorrow night’s season premiere, here’s a preview, then check out the rest over at TV Guide.
For the first time, viewers will see what Elena is like sans any Salvatores in her life. “I’m excited to see her start this new life in college and see how she copes without the Salvatores and how long that lasts and if it makes her realize that being away from them is good or bad,” Dobrev says. “It’s interesting to see her become her own independent person.”
EW chatted both Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder, check out what they had to say and read the rest over at EW.
As for Damon, he won’t exactly find himself grieving for anyone or anything. As Ian Somerhalder put it, “He’s pissed off. They’re stuck in a place they don’t want to be, and Damon’s fiercely loyal. He feels the need to get back to his family. They’re trying everything. They’re Scooby-Doo-ing that sh– like crazy.”
However, don’t expect Damon and Bonnie’s situation to be devoid of fun. “You never really get to see these two together because they do have a lot of fun together,” he said. “Damon’s a goofy man. He likes to have fun, and Bonnie doesn’t take s–t from anyone anymore. She’s just been hammered for years by all these sort of supernatural elements and she just doesn’t take it anymore. It’s awesome.”
