Via E!Online’s Spoiler Chat:
Confession: I was the biggest Eureka fan, so I am so excited to see Colin Ferguson on TVD! What can we expect?
Just some male bonding between him and Matt Donovan! “He came about because we wanted to show Matt thriving in Mystic Falls without supernaturals,” EP Caroline Dries previewed of Ferguson’s character, Tripp. “We wanted to give him a father figure, coach-type of guy, so that’s where Tripp come out of.” Of course, this is The Vampire Diaries, so Tripp will have his secrets, but he’ll “ultimately become an interesting, layered, dynamic character that’s not necessarily good guy or bad guy.”
Via TV Guide’s Mega Buzz:
Got any Vampire Diaries scoop for the premiere? — Jenny
While Elena copes with the loss of Damon in her own way, her brother’s grief expresses itself a little differently. Specifically, he’s locking lips with a mysterious new lady who rubs Matt the wrong way.
Any more scoop on Originals-Vampire Diaries crossover? — Lisa
After we heard that Nina Dobrev will be making an appearance as Tatia, we pressed Originals star Joseph Morgan for details. And it sounds like a very juicy flashback involving Tatia, Esther and her two sons. “You’re going to get insight into Klaus and Esther’s relationship, but also Elijah and Esther’s relationship and what happened back then,” Morgan said. “We’re grateful for Nina coming over… so we could tell that story because I think it needed to be told and it definitely informed who the brothers are today.”
Via TVLine’s Ask Ausiello:
Question: I’m still Team Stelena on The Vampire Diaries. Is there any hope? —Allison
Ausiello: Never give up hope, Allison! Elena’s emotions are all over the place in Season 6 and I have it on good authority that her love life is going to be far from dormant. In fact, I hear she’ll be locking lips with a handsome fella in Episode 3 — and his name does not rhyme with Shmamon.
Question: Any intel on Nina Dobrev’s crossover to The Originals? —Jacob
Ausiello: How’s this intel for you, Jacob? When asked if Tatia’s scenes with Elijah and Klaus would be “steamy,” or if they’d be all talk, Nina Dobrev answered, “A little bit of both, in different capacities. … I’m always going to be in a love triangle. I can’t escape it, so I might as well just accept it.”
