Annie Wersching has been making the rounds chatting with various news outlets in prep for tonight’s episode, where we get to meet the infamous, Lily Salvatore. Damon and Stefan’s long lost mother, who was thought to be dead. Check out what Annie had to say from TVLine and more. We’ll add more interviews as they come in.

Via TVLine:

TVLINE | So much of the focus right now is on Damon and Lily, but Stefan is also her son. What’s that dynamic, and when will we see them interact?

I actually think I shot for quite a while before I even met Paul [Wesley], so most of her initial stuff is with Damon. It’s actually Damon’s plan to have mama be the thing to help Stefan out of his humanity-off phase. That doesn’t necessarily mean things go according to plan, but that’s the idea. … She tries her best to be what her sons want her to be, but she’s a very different woman now.

TV Guide sat down with Ian Somerhalder to discuss tomorrow night’s episode and his experience directing for the first time. We’ve updated this post to include more interviews with Ian! We will continue to add more as they come in.

Via TV Guide:

What surprised you the most about directing?

Ian Somerhalder: The one thing I loved was the creative process of [beginning with] a blank canvas, which is a stage or set, and working with the incredible group of people. Michael Allowitz, who was one of our first assistant directors for the first four years, came on as a co-producer and helped me navigate the waters of this episode. It was a huge thing to have someone I’m so close to and who is such a great director on our show to be there with me and spend every day with us. You have your [assistant directors] and your director of photography and without those people it doesn’t work. They guided me and I can only take credit for very little to be honest.

Was there one scene in the episode you’re especially excited for viewers to see?

Somerhalder: We have a huge party in this episode, which was a lot of fun to shoot. Bonnie and Damon have a really great scene in this episode where Bonnie is just so fed up. She always gets hurt and is always the fall girl, and it’s always so intense for her. She tries her hardest to help people and it always backfires on her. This experience in the prison world made her a woman, and she’s no longer going to deal with this bulls—

Both TV Guide and TVLine had a chance to chat with Candice Accola about tonight’s episode. We’ll add more interviews as they come in.

Via TV Guide:

Tell us about the actual funeral scene.

Accola: It’s very emotional and it’s also remembering that this wasn’t just a funeral for family, but that she was the sheriff of the town. So you have the police officers there and a salute and the final call and the things that go into a funeral for a lost service member. If you’re hoping for a lighter episode this week… it’s going to be pretty heavy like last week.

And you sing during the funeral! Whose idea was that?

Accola: Julie [Plec]’s! [It’s] so funny because for years everyone was like, “Is Caroline going to sing again?” That’s been the running joke. That [scene in Season 2] was fun, but it was never [going to] happen again because finding a natural place for someone to belt out singing on a vampire show isn’t really an easy task. But I did sing and it’s a sweet moment, she pays tribute, and it’s a really tender moment in a very sad funeral.

Via TVLine:

TVLINE | OK, let’s talk about Stefan and Caroline’s kiss, which I’ve been waiting for since Season 2. What was it like to finally film that moment?

loved the progression of the Stefan-Caroline relationship. I love that it’s been such a slow burn, and I love that it wasn’t this aggressively dramatic moment; it was just really sweet and tender and the sun was setting. They didn’t need to start ripping each other’s clothes off. It was just a sweet, simple first kiss. And we could not have had a better sunset for that location shoot. The first day we were supposed to shoot it was cloudy and grey, so we swapped some scenes around and we filmed it the next day. We had to wait for the sun to set, then once it started setting, everybody was like, “Go! Go!”

Via E!Online:

“Yeah, if you thought it was going to get easier and happier and jollier, it’s not,” Accola tells E! News. “It’s definitely going to be an emotional episode this week as well. Thank God for waterproof mascara!”

Although her character has been through a lot this season, Accola is happy with Caroline’s journey so far.

“I thought it was a really powerful move by the writers,” Accola says of Caroline losing her mother. “There has been so much death on the show, a lot of it from really supernatural reasons, like Caroline’s father passed away when he refused to complete his transition to become a vampire. Everyone has found a lot of solutions to a lot of these deaths, these very gruesome, bloody deaths, and this was just as real and non-mythology-based as it gets.”

Via MTV News:

“As far as the quote-unquote shipping community goes, I love the passion behind anyone who ships Caroline and Klaus,” Accola said. “They are very hardcore shippers… But ever since season two, when Stefan helped Caroline through her transition, it’s been interesting how viewers were saying that they thought there was something there with those characters. It has been a really slow burn for many reasons, and that’s why it’s a really interesting time to be part of a television series in the age of social media — you see exactly what the fans and the viewers are thinking right when they’re watching the episode.”

Basically, even if you don’t ship Steroline, you have to acknowledge the strong “TVD” fanbase for predicting this hookup even when Stefan was still seriously sweating Elena (Nina Dobrev).

TV Guide and TVLine have some major scoop for us! Check it!

Via TV Guide’s MegaBuzz:

Anything new on The Vampire Diaries? — Samantha

Expect Damon and Alaric’s bromance to hit a serious speed bump when Damon angers Alaric. How serious is it? One word: fisticuffs! In other heartbreaking news, Bonnie, who has thus far stayed strong in her crazy situation, will be dealt another crushing blow that leads to a breakdown.

Via TVLine’s Ask Ausiello:

Question: Damon found Bonnie’s bear, anything else you can tease that’s ahead for “Bamon” fans on The Vampire Diaries?- Renee

Ausiello: Let’s just say you’re not crazy for seeing a strong connection between Bonnie and Damon, Renee. Despite Elena expressing a “glimmer” of hope for a romantic reunion, Damon is still focused on the mission at hand: Bring back Bonnie. And Ian Somerhalder, for one, wouldn’t be surprised if things turn spicy once the Bennett witch returns. “There’s an extraordinarily thin line between love and hate,” Somerhalder notes. “Due to the fact that these two hated each other, and had so many connections … it only seemed appropriate that they would be given a chance, due to the dynamics of their relationship.”

Question: Do you have anything on my favorite Vampire Diaries character, Tyler? —Jeanette

Ausiello:  What a coincidence, Jeanette, Tyler is one of Andy Swift’s favorite TVDcharacters, too! (Definitely in the Top 20, at least.) Anyway, Michael Trevino says Liv’s current dilemma will take up most of Tyler’s time. “He’s there for Liv and wants to protect her and make sure she’s not getting into trouble,” Trevino says. “She’s being so tough and a little bitchy at times towards him. He’s not used to that, so I like that Tyler’s having to deal with that this season. But we will see their relationship become stronger. He’s really smitten with that girl.”
