The Vampire Diaries recap: “Promised Land”

At the end of last week’s The Vampire Diaries from the CW, the episode left us wondering if the travelers were going to succeed in their plan, and if they do, how that would affect everything else in Mystic Falls. Not only have the travelers been making some drastic progress with their plan, but they also kidnapped Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Elena (Nina Dobrev). Of course, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) has taken things into his own hands to find out where the travelers have taken them. Caroline (Candice Accola) is also helping him, but unfortunately, they have no idea where the […]

The Vampire Diaries recap: “What Lies Beneath”

For the last few episodes of the CW’s The Vampire Diaries, we’ve been wondering what the travelers have been up to. It looks like they’re trying to find a cure for vampirism, only to create a paradise for themselves. They’ve had Tyler (Michael Trevino) trapped in his own body this whole time with a traveler passing through him. At the beginning of this episode though he wakes up and he’s actually himself, being able to transform into the tenacious hybrid he is. Don’t forget about what happened between Enzo (Michael Malarkey) and Stefan (Paul Wesley). Since Enzo’s disappearance, Damon (Ian […]

The Vampire Diaries recap: “Man on Fire”

Last week’s episode of the CW’s The Vampire Diaries did not leave off in a good place. The end of the relationship between Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) didn’t leave us with any sort of closure, the other side of the veil was left in a mysterious mess, and Tyler (Michael Trevino) is a prisoner of the travelers — a problem that no one, including Tyler himself, has figured out yet. Enzo (Michael Malarkey) has been on the hunt for his old “girlfriend” Maggie (Heather Hemmens). He recently got a piece of information that led him to believe […]

“The Originals” takes “Vampire Diaries” to New Orleans

It’s about time all these ancient vampires started acting their age. The CW’s latest fang fest takes characters introduced in the decidedly youth-friendly Vampire Diaries universe and lets them take a more “bacchanalian” approach to immortality, as executive producer Julie Plec puts it. “We graduated high school [with The Vampire Diaries] and went to college and are getting our little master’s degree in The Originals,” she says. Klaus (Joseph Morgan), Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Rebekah (Claire Holt) make the journey from Mystic Falls to New Orleans, where vampires, werewolves and witches are locked in a deadly struggle for control. Marcel […]

“The Vampire Diaries” Series Premiere!

By Emily Mitchell I know what you are thinking … “Another vampire show? Honest to Pete!” I was thinking the same thing. Don’t we already have Twilight? And True Blood? Vampire culture has developed a cult following, much like Harry Potter. So here we are, with another vampire series. But before you rush to judgment like I did, take note. The Vampire Diaries is filmed in the South, specifically in Georgia (True Blood is filmed in Louisiana), and is based on the books of L.J. Smith (not Stephenie Meyer like Twilight.) Although there are many similarities between The Vampire Diaries […]

Paul Wesley talks “The Vampire Diaries”

By Jeff Pfeiffer When he was in his late teens, young heartthrob Paul Wesley played his first supernatural being — werewolf Luke Cates in the short-lived 2001 series Wolf Lake, which remains a cult favorite among some. It was a role that seems fitting now, to Wesley, for the age he was then. “I always associate werewolves … with this kind of instinctive anger,” he says, ” … More like animals with rabies. When I was playing the werewolf, I was like 18 years old, and I think I was just like this teen who was running rampant. And I […]
