VampireDiaries_S5_BLUDVDThanks to Warner Bros. I have had the opportunity to review The Vampire Diaries Complete 5th Season on Bluray. The set is now available at your local retailers and you can also order a copy on Amazon. Click HERE to purchase.

Here’s what you can look forward to in Bonus Features:

2013 Comic Con Panel:

On the first disc, you’ll find highlights from the 2013 San Diego Comic Con Panel. Personally, I had no interest in seeing this. Would have rather seen the 2014 PaleyFest Panel. This was my only disappointment in the set, because the rest of it rocks!

I Know What You Did…in the Last 100 Episodes Featurette:

Highlights from the 100 Episode Celebration Party, and interviews with the cast and producers. Very fun and light-hearted reflection on the last 100 episodes, plus some TVD Trivia to see how well the cast knows their own show!

The Vampire Diaries: To The Other Side and Back Featurette:

The cast and producers explore the mythology of The Other Side, share ghost stories and more!

A Day in the Afterlife with Kat Graham Featurette:

Kat Graham takes you through a day on set as Bonnie Bennett in the afterlife. You meet her hairstylist and make-up artist. Just a really cool behind the scenes feature with our favorite witch/ghost!

Second Bite: Gag Reel:

This is by far THE BEST gag reel in the history of TVD. You will not be disappointed. Over 5 minutes of hilarity, bleeping,  and dancing…yep I said dancing. I predict the fans will be talking about this on Twitter for a while…

Deleted Scenes:

The deleted scenes in this set were great! My only complaint, is there weren’t very many of them. But you will get to see several deleted moments with Nadia, Katherine and Matt/Gregor that you can tell were deleted because they decided to go a different route with the storyline.

In Summary:

Very pleased with this set, and I recommend it to any Vampire Diaries fanatic! Can’t wait to sit back and marathon all of the episodes! Make sure you pick up a copy today!

Thanks to Julie Plec, we have some major questions answered from last night’s season finale and what’s to come in Season 6. Julie talks to both TV Line, EW and more. And thanks to Kat Graham for sharing this awesome BTS photo above from she and Ian Somerhalder filming the last scene!

Via EW:

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: It seemed as if Damon and Bonnie found peace as The Other Side was destroyed. Let’s start with the big question on fans’ minds: Is Ian Somerhalder a series regular in season 6?

JULIE PLEC: I think the ending of the episode is meant to be left up deliberately for speculation of what exactly did happen to them. I can say for certain The Other Side is gone for good, and I can say for certain that when The Other Side disappeared for good that they had already been dealt with — whether it’s through finding peace or other means. Outside of that [laughs], I think I’ll let the speculation blow around a little while longer.

But can you say whether we’ll see Ian and Kat again?

We will definitely see Ian Somerhalder and Kat Graham on the show. I mean, there’s a million different ways that you can do that. But as far as in what context — how, why, and where? — that’s part of the mystery.

Via TV Line:

TVLINE | Now, for some questions about the people who came back: Is Tyler fully human, or just back to being a werewolf?

He’s back to being a human with the werewolf gene, which means he’s going to have to relive that whole experience all over again, this time knowing about it much earlier. He won’t be that messed-up kid with all the aggression he can’t understand; now he knows where it’s coming from. But he’s still going to have to work hard to keep his temperaments reigned in, and to find an outlet for that physical frustration that comes along with having the werewolf gene. If he hurts someone again, he’ll have to go through that whole journey. And as we saw, it was not fun for him.

Via THR:

“The way we look at it, season six is a beautiful and organic reset. The theme of the season is everybody gets to start over. That’s what we’re going to do,” executive producer Julie Plec tells The Hollywood Reporter.
The new season will be a departure from the “massive genre extravaganza” Vampire Diaries has become, instead putting the focus back on character and their often complicated internal and psychological conflicts.
“We’re trying to take the show away from the massive genre extravaganza where each season we try to top each other with the bigger bad, more exciting mythologies and boil it back down to the beginning, which is tension, suspense, romance, psychological horror, simple horror, vampires living in secret, people discovering their secret and coming after them,” Plec promises.

Read the rest over at THR.

Via TV Guide:

What did Grams (Jasmine Guy) mean when she told Bonnie she made sure she’d have peace?

Plec: It’s the biggest clue one can take in the finale as far as the mystery of what’s going to happen next year. That was not an arbitrary comment and Grams clearly did something and the question is what.

WE have exciting news! After last night’s explosive season finale, TV Guide is reporting exclusively that Matt Davis will be returning to The Vampire Diaries as a series regular next season. Check out what TV Guide had to say:

Alaric lives! Matt Davis is returning to The Vampire Diaries for Season 6 as a series regular, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

As everyone raced to save the Other Side on Thursday’s season finale, a few familiar faces, including Lexi (Arielle Kebbel) and Alaric, returned. But while Lexi was sucked up into the atmosphere with Vicki (Kayla Ewell), Alaric was left standing alongside his friends.

So huge congrats go out to Matt, and we couldn’t be more pleased to see him return! I know a lot of fans are! (And, not sure I would agree with TV Guide that Lexi is in the same place as Vicki, she seemed to be taken by a white light and found peace, but that’s just my opinion)


Tonight’s Vampire Diaries Season 5 finale was a bold move by the writers for sure. Heart-wrenching to say the least. Let me know what you guys thought in the comments, but FIRST. Today The CW announced their 2014 – 2015 Fall Schedule, and with it included a summary of the past season, and a snippet of what’s to come in season 6, which may give us a little hope. *Spoiler Alert*

Season five of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES began with a sense of hope for Elena (Nina Dobrev).  After a passionate summer with Damon (Ian Somerhalder), Elena headed to Whitmore College with Caroline (Candice Accola), not knowing that Bonnie (Kat Graham) sacrificed her life to save Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen).  As Bonnie’s friends fought to bring her back to life as the Anchor to the Other Side, Stefan (Paul Wesley) had to face-off with his doppelganger Silas, and a newly human Katherine (Nina Dobrev) struggled with mortality and motherhood.  Damon’s relationship with Elena was put to the test when Enzo (guest star Michael Malarkey), an old vampire friend from Damon’s past, revealed he was still alive and looking for revenge.  Stefan and Caroline’s friendship deepened as they stood up to the Travelers, a nomadic witch tribe driven to strip Mystic Falls of magic and cast out its supernatural residents.  Finally, having lost his town and fearing losing his loved ones on the crumbling Other Side, Damon made a huge sacrifice to bring them all back – to catastrophic results.

While the cliffhanger will send our characters reeling, season six will be the story of their journey back to each other as they explore the duality of good versus evil inside themselves on their quest to reclaim their home.
