With such a collection of spoilers and interviews about this week, we decided that it was best to put it all into one easy tp read post! So check it all out below:
But first up, let us remind you that due to Thanksgiving in the US this Thursday, there will be NO episode aired this week. The next episode, titled “My Brothers Keeper” will air on Thursday 29th November.
According to TV Line Hayley will continue to be the bane of Caroline’s existence.
“She is definitely throwing a wrench in Caroline’s perfect world and her perfect relationship with Tyler at the moment,” Candice Accola tells TVLine. “If anything, we’ve learned at this point within the series that Caroline is a very resilient, strong character, so I don’t think she’s going to put up with it too easily.” In the meantime, she’s going to be “interacting a lot more” with a certain Original. “She’s getting to see different sides of him,” the actress hints, “but she doesn’t really know how she feels about it.”
Candice Accola has been busy over the last week on the interview trail where she has been sharing little snippets of information about the latest love triangle on TVD – Tyler, Caroline and Klaus. Speaking with Inside TV, Candice dished on a couple of upcoming episodes:
Caroline has definitely, in the past, used Klaus’ feelings toward her to distract him so that they can execute their plan and try to get ahead and beat Klaus at his own game. So we’ve seen this before, and we will definitely see it again. Caroline knows the kind of hold that she has over Klaus. I don’t think that she necessarily trusts fully that he will never just switch on a dime — I don’t think anyone can. I think that’s what so enticing for viewers to watch a character like Klaus. The second that you think he’s being the nice guy, then he’s the bad guy. The second you think he’s just a bad guy, he’s a nice guy. He isn’t a one-note bad guy. He does have a genuine side, and I think that through Caroline, we’re getting that perspective.
Fans are speculating that Caroline brings Klaus as her date.
There are pictures out there of Caroline and Klaus at Miss Mystic Falls. They definitely do have time together.
And I love your dress. Did you have any input on that?
I love it, too. And no. In the wardrobe room, just being like “Ooooh,” that’s about the extent of my input. It’s funny, all these little things that you don’t think of. You can be in a wardrobe room and be like, ‘Oh, but this looks so great,” but you don’t know what the other characters are wearing, and you can’t have three female leads all in the same color. And then if one character has to do stunts, that’s gonna alter the option that she or he has to wear. It’ll mean certain jackets, certain lengths. Then you can’t have other characters [copying that]. You would think that it’s just so easy, they just find these cute dresses and fun clothes, but it’s so much more calculated than that.
So will Caroline be doing any stunts at the Miss Mystic Falls event?
I think the craziest stunt that I do is walk in the grass with high heels on. They asked if I wanted a stunt double. I said, “No. No. I got this.”
There’s a Winter Wonderland-themed party in the Dec. 13 episode. What does Winter Wonderland look like in Mystic Falls?
They must have a killer storage unit for all these incredible decorations. It really was a Winter Wonderland. It was just cool enough in Georgia that you could be sipping on your hot tea, coffee, or latte sitting outside, and they’ve got fake snow and all these beautiful lights and they’re playing Christmas music. It was a cool week to go to work.
The synopsis for that episode says that Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Caroline find themselves at odds with Tyler over his plans for Klaus and his hybrids. It feels like by virtue of her relationship with Tyler, Caroline hasn’t been interacting as much with Stefan as some fans may hope. But this makes it sound like the story lines will converge.
We will definitely see Caroline interact more with Stefan this season. Stefan’s constantly trying to do the right thing for Elena, even though it’s not necessarily what she seems to be wanting. And Caroline’s trying to do the right thing in making sure that everyone stays safe — including Tyler, love of her life, even if he’s willing to risk it all. I don’t think Caroline’s necessarily willing to risk his life. So Caroline and Stefan find a friendship in trying to really protect the ones that they love, even if the ones they love don’t want protecting.
And in another interview with TV Line, Candice spoke some more about Klaus and also some dish on Stefan/Caroline:
TVLINE | Do you see hints that Klaus and Caroline could be compatible? There’s definitely a certain sense of that. But there’s also a lot of game-playing. A lot of what could be misconstrued as compatibility is that they’re both equally in tune [with] knowing how to push each other’s buttons in order to win a game that they’re playing against each other – or at least a game that Caroline is playing against Klaus. Klaus is dripping in manipulation with every word he says, but Caroline’s clued into this and knows how to play his game. That’s definitely a type of compatibility. TVLINE | Klaus is pretty relentless when it comes to his feelings for her. Is he wearing her down, or is she just sick and tired of him? They both just love the game. It’s a back and forth. It’s a push and a pull. That’s what makes it so sexy. It’s a lot of almost.
TVLINE | Are there any Stefan/Caroline scenes you can tease? There are great Stefan/Caroline scenes coming up. … I don’t necessarily see Caroline bringing out a fun and frivolous side to him at this point just because right now there’s so many weighted things going on within both of their lives. They’re going to find a comfort within each other and a comfort within their friendship because they both are in the difficult situation of wanting to support the ones that they love even if they don’t agree with what they’re choosing to do.
Julie Plec recently spoke with reporters, everyone was curious about all the alone time Professor Shane (David Alpay) spent with Bonnie (Kat Graham).
Check out what Julie had to say about the mysterious new professor.
Will Jeremy find Professor Shane?
Julie Plec: Definitely Professor Shane starts to cross paths with our group [in Season 4, Episode 6, “We All Go a Little Mad Sometimes”], with some answers. Whether they are legit or not remains to be seen.
With Professor Shane taking Bonnie out of commission for seven hours and doing as he pleases, is there shady business going on?
Julie Plec: Well, I think it’s a good question because on one hand there is this mentor who is appearing in her life just as she’s in her own darkest place where she feels like she’s lost connection to her magic and like she’s being punished by these spirits and here’s this very bright, very wise, very connected professor who’s saying to her, Hey, let me teach you how to get back in touch with who you really are. So there’s an allure to that which is really great but unfortunately, as we’ve already seen, he has an alternate agenda that he’s hiding. We just don’t know if it’s in her best interest or not. So a lot of that will start coming to light over the next chapter.
And last but not least, this just in from Zap2it
“The Vampire Diaries”: It’s (almost) Christmas time in Mystic Falls! Though the holiday won’t actually be mentioned because of the show’s wacky timeline (is it still 2010 in Mystic Falls?), we will see a winter wonderland themed episode just before the holiday hiatus, and it’ll be merry and jolly and all those good things. “It’s really, really beautiful,” Candice Accola tells us. “The set was absolutely gorgeous, and it’s a crazy, crazy episode. It’s huge and there are tons of things going on. And everything goes right, and perfect, and wonderful, and there are no problems, and everyone just happily drinks cocoa at the end of the episode.” (This just in: Candice Accola is a dirty liar.)
