With heavy heart and fond farewell for the summer, we bring you the most highly opinionated publication in print. We’re closing like we opened, just a small town newspaper that’s a glorified gossip rag.
Editor’s note: A standing round of well-deserved virtual applause to Ruthie, resident screencapper extraordinaire for another action-packed season! There ain’t no rest for the wicked, but the Editorial Staff is takin a five-month hiatus! Oh, my, did we say FIVE months?
FUTURE OUTLOOK BLEAK FOR GRADUATING SENIORS
MFPD inexplicably failed to investigate reports of an unruly flash mob threatening to mar graduation festivities at the local high school. A huge group of vagrants was spotted trolling the freshly decorated MFHS football stadium in advance of commencement activities. Neighbors awoke to public address system tomfoolery, overhearing a broadcast of menacing statements. Some reported an eerie, foreign-sounding male voice, spouting a sermon-like oration about massacres of
lions, tigers, and bears, oh my hybrids, witches, and innocents. The group dispersed quickly after broadcasting a threat to unleash Hell on Earth. Rumor has it the mob was a group of dissatisfied drop outs all previously named Most Likely Not To Succeed. Film at eleven (or when the full moon rises).
Check out these interviews with Julie Plec from TV Guide, TV Line & EW. She sheds light on the season finale, previews season 5 and answers questions you all may have! Don’t read any further if you haven’t watched the episode yet!
Via TV Guide:
How long before everyone finds out that Stefan is really Silas?
Plec: Truth be told, I don’t think it’ll be too long. I think that there’s more fun to be played with people learning quickly, but independently of the other so there’s a lot of good bait-and-switch Katherine-style stuff that could happen early in the season. And people that know Stefan well will be able to catch on pretty quickly I would hope.
Can we expect double Paul Wesley scenes?
Plec: Part of the fun of having an actor play two roles are those opportunities to put them face to face, but they’re difficult to shoot and they take a lot of time and the stuff we do even with Katherine and Elena we do so sparingly. So we’ll definitely see it, but of course Stefan will be on his own journey presumably at the bottom of the [lake] floor so we’ll see when and who gets him out of that mess.
Via TV Line:
TVLINE | Speaking of, why Damon? What were you hoping to get to explore in Elena choosing Damon?
Damon’s a character who’s been driven by feeling like he’s not worthy of love. Now that he’s on the receiving end of that love, what will that mean for him? And where will he have to make changes in him, in his behavior? Or will he still be, “I am who I am. You love me for who I am. I’m not going to change for you”? It’ll be a fun dynamic to see him either trying to exercise restraint or not being able to exercise restraint in the name of love of this girl, especially as he’s got a new houseguest. He’s [living] with Jeremy Gilbert as Elena goes off to college.
Did you start the season knowing that you were going to end it with Bonnie dying?
Interestingly enough, that was a pitch that was on the table for the finale last year. For us, it’s always been a question of how much we want to show of the other side. And is there an entire world that we can play over there, or do we really want to keep everything grounded in a real world universe. Having Jeremy able to see ghosts and now Bonnie over on the other side, it felt like an exciting complication to a budding romantic relationship that we were looking forward to playing in that. And also relieving ourselves of the burden — as Kevin [Williamson] calls it, the witch storytelling burden — which is that when you have a witch, they should be able to fix all the problems, but if they could fix all the problems, then you’re not telling the story. But if they can’t fix the problems, then they’re really bad witches. [Laughs] So it’s a nice relief from that for a while.
How much will we see of Kat Graham next season?
She will be a regular. She will be around. If anything, we’ll see as much if not more of her. And it gives us a great way to develop more stories for her outside of just her being the witch that comes in and tries to save the day. I’m excited about the opportunity to tell a romantic relationship between two people who can’t physically be together. Talk about your hurdles.
Wow…what an episode! This episode in my opinion, was the best one to date! Tops any other episode of The Vampire Diaries hands down! Since there was not a preview to post…*sad face* I wanted to open up this post for everyone to discuss their feelings, favorite moments, etc. It’s going to be a long 5 months. The CW once again, will launch it’s Fall Schedule in mid-October. Let me know what you guys thought of the episode, what was the most shocking moment of the finale? Take the poll and discuss in the comments!
E!Online has posted their video interviews with Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev from today’s CW Upfronts.
While Dobrev wouldn’t spill on which brother Elena chooses (duh!), she does reveal it’s not an easy decision.
“It’s like any relationship. There’s a different connection you have with different people, and I think that Elena had a certain connection with Stefan that was very profound and with Damon it was more excitable,” she says. “Between the two of them, unfortunately, they’re the perfect man, so it’s hard. Maybe she needs to go out and explore other things and discover herself.
Well tonight is the night…we’ve made it to the end of yet another season of The Vampire Diaries. What’s going to happen with Bonnie???!! I know, I am personally on pins and needles!
Check out the summary for tonight’s season finale. Then, refresh your memory with a recap, watch the previews and clips and get ready! It’s going to be one crazy ride, no doubt!
WHO WILL TAKE THE CURE? — On Graduation Day, Mystic Falls is overrun with ghosts intent on settling old scores and fulfilling their supernatural destinies. Damon’s (Ian Somerhalder) life is in danger after a ghostly encounter, while Matt (Zach Roerig) and Rebekah (Claire Holt) join forces to battle a ghost determined to find the cure. As everyone gathers for the graduation ceremony and the ghosts converge, help comes from an unlikely hero. Caroline (Candice Accola) receives a touching and unexpected graduation present, and Bonnie’s (Kat Graham) plan leads to the closing of the veil. Elena (Nina Dobrev) makes a decision about the Salvatore brothers and faces an epic confrontation with Katherine (Nina Dobrev). Finally, Stefan (Paul Wesley) discovers a horrifying clue to the mystery surrounding Silas. Chris Grismer directed the episode written by Caroline Dries & Julie Plec (#423).
This was previously posted as a Facebook exclusive, but the CW has now released this 2nd preview clip for tomorrow night’s season finale! Katherine threatens Elena to Bonnie!
Elena’s Choice, Take Two: While season three’s finale also featured Elena making a choice between the Salvatore brothers, Plec previews that our heroine isn’t the same human girl who chose Stefan (Paul Wesley) just before dying and coming back as a vamp. “I think that in last year’s finale it was very clear that Elena was struggling with feelings for both brothers and needed to make a decision about what she wanted her life to be and who she wanted to share that life with,” she explains. “This year, she’s had a very traumatic roller coaster of life experience and it’s changed her irrevocably—and at the center of it all was the diehard belief that she loved Damon, that she loved him more than she’d ever loved anyone.
She continues, “Her struggle has been with the realization of the sire bond that she couldn’t even trust those feelings to be true. So it’s more about answering the truth of those feelings and as a result does that mean her distance from Stefan was also not real and not true? She handles that realization pretty well and it’s a great, great, great scene.”
TV Guide’s Vampire Diaries Bite: The triangle is right back where it started
Arielle Kebbel is back with the latest Vampire Diaries Rehash video recap for Episode 4.22 “The Walking Dead”.
Mystic Falls Messenger
Isn’t Ric the sheriff of the Zombiepocalypse? Wasn’t Deputy Shane already The Walking Dead? Are The Salvatore Brothers masquerading as Daryl and Merle? Could Bonnie pull off the chutzpah of Michonne, invisichained pet notwithstanding? Are Matty and Bex auditioning to be Glenn and Maggie? Is Silas impersonating The Governor, and just who the heck is Little Ass Kicker?
Editor’s note: Bless our screencapper! Ruthie had to dig through the archives AND the wayback machine to capture all these fun blasts from the past. And talk about yer special effects! Ruthie can make Silas look like ANYONE!
Not your ordinary Society News: Nope, it’s Sigmund Stefan’s Simple Sublimation. Mr. Fix-Your-Focus held a therapy session to get Elena to channel her inner hate. First lesson: How to turn into a block-breaking machine. Oh, Elena, how far you’ve come since Self-Defense Against the Dark Boyfriends 101! She aced the exam, but failed the test. No amount of block busting would channel her focused hate into love, hope, or compassion. Your fault, Sigmund! You tuned her emo channel into a single feeling station! Since they were in Stef’s bedroom, was it good for him? And while we’re asking questions, WHERE’S KATHERINE? Elena tried to rationalize that Stef had wanted to kill Klaus after he turned his emo back on–but he couldn‘t. Second lesson: Learn to count! That order was 50 pull-ups, not nine! Elena sucks at counting, but extra credit for carrying on a casual (yet murderously descriptive) workout convo! Housekeeping! Send up a maid with a broom and a heavy duty trash bag!
We now have the extended preview for next week’s season finale “Graduation”.
Wow…tonight’s episode was insane!!! What does this mean??? By this…you know what happened at the VERY end…did THAT really happen?? Check out the preview for next week’s season finale “Graduation”.
