On other networks you would be right, but not on this one.
Come on people!!! They made Joseph Morgan a cast regular. If you honestly were not expecting this, then you have never been paying attention. Klaus had to join team keep Elena safe.
Damon is big bad - Elena in danger - bigger bad tomb vamps - Damon and team MF want tomb vamps dead
Katherine is big bad - Elena in danger - bigger bad Klaus - Katherine and team MF want Klaus dead
Klaus is big bad - Elena in danger - bigger bad Mikael - Klaus and team MF want Mikael dead
Klaus-the original one-Elijah
It doesn't matter what any of you think, it is not your show. Live with it or leave it, enough of us like it that it will go on.
To be honest I'm mostly FUCK all you damn haters!!!
They had every single girl audition for Elena, then from there they decided who would play whom, and all the guys auditioned for Stefan. Last season they had every male guest star audition for Elijah, and then used them in other roles later.
Stefan gave Elena the necklace in "Friday Night Bites", this was the conversation.
Stefan- I hope you don't think this is too soon or too wierd. I wanted you to have this.
Elena- Oh my God... It's beautiful.
Stefan- It's something I've had forever and I've never wanted to give it to anyone until now. I'd very much like it if you'd wear it for me for good luck.
It was then discussed again in "Lost Girls"
Elena- The mind control that Katherine used, do you ever do that to me?
Stefan- No, that necklace contains an herb called vervain. It protects you from being compelled. I wanted to protect you from Damon's influence, but I also wanted to protect you from me. Elena you should never take that necklace off.
It never belonged to Katherine. Why on Earth would Elena have ever accepted something that Stefan would have told her belonged to Katherine? Katherine only ever had it a couple of times when she was pretending to be Elena, but she always does wear some kind of necklace.
I am also a guy that watchs.
From this past episode it looked like he was not writing down too much at this point in time. When Elena was reading it she was only turning one page, and the dates were two years apart.
If you’ve ever longed to see Stefan Salvatore in a tailcoat tuxedo, this Thursday’s The Vampire Diaries (The CW, 8/7c) will suit you just fine.
TVLine got an advanced look at the episode, titled ”The End of the Affair,” which finds our recently reverted Ripper ripping his way through 1920s Chicago — and if ever there was a game-changing episode of the supernatural saga, this is it.
Here’s some scoop on the standout installment from executive producer Julie Plec and cast members. [SPOILERS AHEAD]
A BROMANCE IS BORN | Stefan (played by Paul Wesley) and Klaus have a much more storied history than what we’ve seen thus far on TVD, and that will be explored further in Thursday’s time trip. “One of the big questions that we left last year with was, ‘Why did Klaus take such an interest in Stefan, of all people?’” Plec muses. But before answering that, we’ll have to delve into Klaus’ past. “What we want to do is show the roots of Klaus’ character as it relates to his family, the people that he has known for a thousand years that we know he’s daggered one-by-one and carted around in coffins.” Ultimately, this episode sheds light on the fact that Klaus is “trying to fill a hole that’s been left inside of him,” says Plec, “as a result of loss of family or desire for family, a desire for that brotherhood.”
A BAD BOY IS REFORMED? | Hardly! Joseph Morgan explains that while “we’re going to see a more human, childlike aspect” of his character in “The End of the Affair,” it’s not a permanent fixture. “We’re peeling away a few of the layers and starting to see his humanity and morality and where that need to be destructive came from. But ultimately the hope is that he’ll stay bad.” That said, the actor is a perpetual nice guy and couldn’t stop gushing about shooting a 1920s ep. “I had tremendous fun,” he tells us with a laugh. “It’s an era that I just love anyway and the costumes are amazing. I opted for more of a ‘Pacino in the Godfather‘ hairstyle this time.” (Wrong era, but cute nonetheless.)
NEW ORIGINALS | Another Original will soon be introduced on TVD, but don’t expect to see a slew of them in Season 3. “That was our intention until we did the math and realized we’ve said there’s seven children, and that’s a lot of new people to bring into the story,” Plec says. “The mother is going to be someone we meet in the past, as well as other siblings — and we’ll see Elijah (Daniel Gillies) again.”
HEARTBREAK AHEAD | No, this isn’t a 7th Heaven, PSA-esque episode, but Nina Dobrev likens a moment in the ’20s saga to the much-publicized assault on a certain popstar. “There’s almost a Rihanna-like abuse twist with Stefan in the episode,” she tells us. “It has nothing to do with that physically, but emotionally it feels like Elena is abused.” Having seen said moment, we can tell you that it happens near the end of the hour and will break your heart. Minor Spoiler Alert: The scene in question echoes that of many an Angel/Buffy “tell me you don’t love me” tearjerker, however there is a semi-silver lining to the mishap. “Because of what happens with Stefan, she learns how to fight and become a warrior,” says Dobrev. “This is the season where Elena stops letting the boys in her life dictate what happens.”
SILENCE IS GOLDEN | While Damon (Ian Somerhalder) extra supportive of Elena after the aforementioned heartbreaker, there is a moment before it, between Elena and Stefan, that consists of absolutely no dialogue, but is so incredibly moving we may have teared up a bit. So, Stelena fans can look forward to that.
BLASTS FROM THE PAST | Back in the flapper era, we’ll meet Stefan’s equally devious ex, Rebekah (played by Pretty Little Liars‘ Claire Holt). She’s definitely trouble — and will likely be again when we meet her in present day! — yet oddly enough, she’s likable. As for any returning folk in the flashback (…and beyond), Plec will only say, “We get to learn some old, old secrets and return to play with some old friends-slash-foes.”
VERY BAD DAD | This in no way relates to the 1920s sequences, but the same episode finds Caroline imprisoned by her vamp-hunting dad. Huge props to Candice Accola, who more than delivers in several painful-to-watch torture scenes at the hands of Jack Coleman’s Bill (who is majorly channeling Heroes‘ HRG circa Season 1!). Minor Spoiler Alert: During a bout of sun exposure, Accola’s performance mirrors Michael Trevino’s stellar work during Tyler’s first transition into a werewolf.
SUPER-PRECIOUS JEWELRY | You know that life-saving necklace that never leaves Elena’s person? Well, that thing is crazy important and will become something newbie Rebekah desperately seeks.
We’ll be posting more details from the Q&A within the next day, both before and after the episode has aired, over on our general TV news site, KSiteTV. For now, though, enjoy these teases from Ms. Plec… under a cut for those who might not want even the remotest of spoilers.
* One of the series’ mysteries will be solved on the September 29 episode. “One of the big questions that we left last year with was ‘Why did Klaus take such an interest in Stefan, specifically, of all people?’ What we wanted to do is show the roots of Klaus’s character as it relates to his family, the people that he has known for a thousand years and been with off and on for a thousand years, that we, notoriously, of course, know that he’s daggered one by one and carted around in coffins,” Plec says. “So this notion of this big, bag, evil hybrid ‘dick,’ I guess, is what they said in the episode, who, like, everybody else in our show, is in his own way trying to fill a hole that’s been left inside of him as a result of loss of family or desire for family; a desire for that brotherhood. So this is just the beginning. It’s the beginning of our glimpse into Klaus’s life. It’s not the last we’ll see of his story and his family’s story. There’s so much story there that you could give them their own show; but right now we want them to have our show and be able to tell that story in the midst of everything else that we’re doing in Mystic Falls.”
* Some familiar faces might show up in this week’s episode. “I would say that we get to learn some old, old secrets and return to play with some old friends slash foes,” Plec teases.
* This isn’t the only look into Klaus’s past that we’ll see in the near future.”Right now we’re about to start shooting an episode that takes us back a little bit – a LONG bit, actually – to the origin story of the Original family,” Plec reveals.
* The simmering attraction between Elena and Damon will finally be addressed soon – even though Damon makes many innuendos in “The End Of The Affair.” “There has yet to be an admission of that chemistry from her part. In fact, next week’s episode kind of illuminates that a little bit. A lot’s gone unsaid; there’s a big elephant in the room as far as all these fun little stolen moments and romantic banter, and their dynamic with each other, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed with other people,” Julie says.
* Bonnie will finally be back from her time with “the normal side” of her family in the season’s fourth episode, which airs next week.
* Will we be seeing Katherine again? “Katherine is such a fun foil to our characters, and she’s such a hilarious, wild vixeny showcase for Nina Dobrev, which I’m sure is a nice exercise for her as well,” Plec says… which gives us the feeling she’ll be back again sooner rather than later.
