CW Spoilers: Scoop on 'Vampire Diaries,' 'Secret Circle,' 'Nikita' & More (Plus: 'Secret Circle' Giveaway!)

by Laura Prudom, posted Sep 15th 2011 1:00PM
Last Saturday, many of the CW's brightest stars dropped by the Warner Bros. studio lot in Burbank to celebrate the start of a new fall season, and AOL TV was on hand to grab some fresh scoop about your favorite shows straight from the source.

The CW

We caught up with the casts of 'The Vampire Diaries,' 'Nikita,' 'Supernatural,' 'Ringer' and 'The Secret Circle' for a sneak peek of what's coming up after new episodes premiere, so join us after the jump for a cavalcade of spoilers.

'THE VAMPIRE DIARIES'

Nina Dobrev

On that kiss with Damon: "The first couple of episodes, nobody really talks about it and they sort of deny it and pretend it never happened. Then it gets awkwardly brought up and they have to deal with it, but then after that they kind of move forward. Elena makes clear that she still has hope for Stefan and wants to save him and believes he can be saved, and Damon selflessly decides to help her. He wants to make sure that she's happy and she's convinced that Stefan is what makes her happy."

On the season premiere: "Elena finds out that a lot of people have been going behind her back in the hope of keeping her on a path to move forward and forget about Stefan, so they don't tell her things and that kind of drives her over the edge. And she, in a moment of celebration, is mourning -- she doesn't want to be celebrating her birthday, she wants to be with her love, so it's a frustrating time for her."

Caroline and TylerCandice Accola
On Caroline and Tyler: "They're going to do lots of laundry -- like, 'oh, that shirt looks dirty, let me take it off of you,' 'oh, your dress is wrinkled, let me take it off for you...' [laughs] We're just teenagers being responsible!"

On what Caroline will be doing this season (besides Tyler): "We come back with Caroline planning Elena's birthday party, and what I love so far about season three is that the audience is going to see more girl bonding time. The women come back together this season, because I feel like last season there was so much going on within the separate storylines that it was always like one woman with a bunch of men around her. It's been nice to have all the girls back together and showing each other that support. I'm also really excited for the audience to see the flashback scenes; they're really beautiful and it's a lot of really great storytelling."

Zach Roerig
On Matt's arc in season three: "Now that Matt's in the know about the mystical craziness going on, you'll see him start to explore the realm of the dead, interacting with the dead. He and Jeremy will be the only two people who can actually see what's going on -- everyone else will be aware of it, but finally there'll be some closure between Matt and Vicki ... Jeremy is the key to [the ghosts] coming back, and then Matt figures out a way to become more involved than he should be."

On Matt and Caroline: "Matt has totally given up on Caroline, there's no way they could ever be together again. See, Matt and Elena are very different, Matt could never truly be with a vampire. He'll always care for her and love her, but I think he loves and respects both [Caroline and Tyler] enough to know that they're right for each other."

Kat Graham
On Bonnie and Jeremy: "Bonnie has to deal with the fact that Jeremy is now seeing the ghosts of his dead girlfriends, so she has to decide whether she wants to stay with someone who would choose to deal with that or not -- it's a discovery of self, I think. I don't know how I would handle it if they were alive, let alone dead, so major props that she can deal with it at all."

On whether there's any potential for Damon and Bonnie romantically: "Not that I know of, no, and if that did develop I wouldn't see it happening this season specifically. If any Damon romance happened, it would happen with Elena, maybe. I think Bonnie is someone you have to work hard to get to, which I like about her. I like that they can snap on each other at any moment but they can also work together at any moment. She knows what kind of person she's dealing with [with Damon] so she's going to make the right decisions for her and to protect Elena at the end of the day."

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 3 premieres Thu., Sept. 15, 8PM ET on The CW



'NIKITA'

Maggie Q
Shane West and Maggie Q.
On the introduction of Michael's ex: "There's no jealousy; when
the woman does come back, it isn't that sort of thing like 'I don't like this woman because she's pretty,' which I love about Nikita, because she's so above that. She sort of looks at it very objectively and goes, 'I love you and whatever you need from me, I'm going to do for you and I'm gonna make happen,' so that's what it is. In the end, it's less about [Nikita and Michael] not having enough love for each other and more about a circumstance that comes in that may hurt them. And yes, it involves this woman."

On meeting Nikita's biological father [played by David Keith]: "This has been the cross that she's had to bear for her entire life; she's been looking for this man and her mother for a long time. She finds out what happened to her mother, but her father's always been this big mystery, this question mark. When she finally does find him, you feel, hopefully, that she's going to have some kind of connectivity to this man that would help her, or allow her just some growth or some peace, and then it doesn't happen. It's sad actually, it's awful, and it's one of the first episodes where we see Nikita actually lose it; we see her in a state that's less than controlled, which is so unlike her."

On flashbacks: "There are going to be some great flashbacks coming up. In episode six right now, we're going to see Nikita as a young recruit, which we've only seen once, and she's such a badass [laughs]. You're gonna see this side to her, the very angry, young Nikita that we haven't known yet."

On the return of Owen [Devon Sawa]: "I love the Owen character; him and Nikita have a great chemistry. There's something lovely and weirdly innocent about him even though he's been through so much -- he's almost like a puppy to me, a little bit. She cares deeply for this person because she understands the life that he's lived, and so he does come back quickly, he goes away again, and the next time we see him, Nikita might be looking for him instead of the other way around."

'Nikita' Season 2 premieres Fri., Sept. 23 at 8PM ET on The CW



'SUPERNATURAL'

Jim BeaverJim Beaver
On Bobby's arc this season (and rumors of his house being destroyed): "I've done five of the first six episodes. There are changes involving Bobby's house, but not necessarily [destruction]. I was in Bobby's house set a couple of days ago, as a matter of fact. One thing I've learned, in life as well as on 'Supernatural,' is that whatever you expect, it'll be different."

On a potential love interest: "Bobby has a very nice time in episode 6, a better time than he's had in the previous episodes he's been in. I won't go so far as to commit to what it was, but I think the fans will love it -- I liked it a lot!"

On comparisons between season seven and 'Butch and Sundance': "The real 'Butch Cassidy' connection is that in that movie, they kept looking back at the bad guys chasing them going 'who are those guys?' and there's a lot of that, because Sam and Dean and Bobby are faced with something they've never seen before and their usual tools and tricks and weapons don't work so well. We picked up this show in season one with the boys knowing what they were after and what they were dealing with; now they're learning all over again. But we're fairly innovative fellas, so we find new ways and new things."

On Castiel's link to the new big bad: "Everything Cas did toward the end of the season is going to pay off in very specific ways with this new villainy. The big bad comes directly from what Cas was doing."

'Supernatural' Season 7 premieres Fri., Sept. 23 at 9PM ET on The CW



'RINGER'

Ioan GruffuddKris Polaha and Ioan Gruffudd
On Andrew's arc this season: "I know broad strokes for my character's arc, but I can't tell you much. What I love about the pilot is that we've put all those questions out there; Andrew is a very ambiguous character, so far he's continuing to be ambiguous and I love that about playing him, the audience don't know whether this guy is just this charming British guy or whether he has this deeper and darker side. His relationship with his daughter evolves quite dramatically in episodes five and six -- I'd love to share it with you, but I can't [laughs]. But it's quite dramatic, and really adult things happen as well, which I think will keep the audiences tuning in. You're gonna feel smart watching this show, it's one of those delicious high-brow soap operas in that way."

On Siobhan's apparent pregnancy and how Bridget will fake it: "Now [the pregnancy] has a serious timeline, yes, so we're on episode six, how many weeks is that? Maybe by the end of the season if she's not starting to show, questions will be asked. How she gets out of this one, I don't know -- I'm intrigued!"

Kristoffer Polaha
On what Henry sees in Siobhan, and his character's arc: "I don't know, at a certain point he might wonder what he sees in Siobhan ... but no, he loves her. And unfortunately for my character, the moral conflict is that Henry's married to Siobhan's best friend, which is a pretty low place to start, but you do see that there is genuine affection and real tenderness there. But that is all to add to the weight of the story. He's a pretty redeemable character, and my job is to make him as likeable as can be, so we'll see. But that's what's fun for me; I just came off 'Life Unexpected' where Baze was just this big-hearted, loveable rogue who you wanted to see win but who was always losing because he was a loser, a little bit. Henry is the exact opposite, he's sharp, he's clean, he's precise, so those moments where I'm supposed to play dark, he goes dark, it's fun."

On the tension between Henry and Andrew as Siobhan/Bridget's two lovers: "Tension builds between Andrew and Henry, for sure. Ringer is sort of exceeding expectations -- I will give you money if you don't think that the second episode is better than the first, it just keeps getting better and better. They've got eight different tracks and they're all interweaving really brilliantly, it's like a pyramid -- it all bears the load."

'Ringer' airs Tuesdays, 9PM ET on The CW



'THE SECRET CIRCLE'

The Secret CircleBritt Robertson
On Cassie's story beyond the pilot: "She doesn't get as beat up in the next couple of episodes -- she gets her fair share, but at least now she knows how to fight back a little bit. There's some pretty cool storylines between myself and Faye that come close after the pilot, so the fans should enjoy that. There's no friction [wtih Diana] at this point -- they're both on the same team, and Adam is just a little straw that broke the camel's back, but it's nothing to be worried about, they'll stay strong."

Thomas Dekker
On what we can expect in upcoming episodes: "Past the pilot we really get to get into who these kids are and what their history is together and what their parents' history is -- what happened to them sixteen years ago and how that affects us. What I love about what's happening with the show is that it's just getting increasingly darker and darker and more aggressive and sexier and wilder. I think it's not for the faint of heart, which I like."

On the choice between Diana and Cassie: "Diana's the relationship he's had for years, so his loyalty lies there, but this impossible, visceral attraction lies with Cassie. It's a big inner struggle for my character, it's one of the biggest in the series, grappling with which way he's going to go."

On how Adam uses magic: "The elements play a big role in how the magic works -- for my character, for instance, it's all about the balance of nature with physical energy, he's not trying to do any drastic, insane, dangerous tricks at this point. He's still fascinated by the small things, the delicate things, and he kind of becomes Cassie's teacher in that way, but when they're together their magic gets a bit out of control for obvious reasons and they're trying to figure that out."

Phoebe Tonkin
On Faye's storyline: "We're going to really explore her relationship with her mother; she lost her dad when she was a baby, she's an only child and her mom's not been the best mother to her. And we're going to see what Faye is going to do now that she's come into this incredible power."

On Faye's relationship with the rest of the circle: "These characters are all thrown together, not because they're friends but because they all have these magic powers, so it's interesting to see these relationships, because I reckon if they didn't have these powers, they wouldn't be friends at school. She keeps trying to remind the other characters how cool and how much fun this all is, whereas all the other characters, in Faye's point of view, are very like 'this is bad, this could turn terrible' and Faye's just like 'this is cool, let's have fun with it!'"

Louis Hunter
On Nick's character development: "In the episodes coming up, he falls kind of head over heels for someone, who helps him get over the issues of becoming close to another person, which is really fun to watch develop. I don't think he particularly wants to be in the Circle, he's the one who couldn't care less whether he has power or not. He finds it hard being close to these people, even though they were friends of his growing up -- because of the accident where he lost his parents he's found it hard to connect with another person. He and Adam were best friends and now they hardly talk, so it develops. I don't think Nick brings much to the Circle in terms of wanting to be there, but in terms of someone who's ready and willing to rescue someone in need, he's the guy to call."

Natasha Henstridge
On Dawn's evil plan: "She definitely has a real agenda and she's willing to do a lot of things to get to the end result. Although I think there will be times and moments where you'll understand where she's coming from, I think only sick individuals will understand it at this point [laughs]."

On her relationship with Charles [Gale Harold]: "I toy with him like a cat with catnip! [laughs] I think she's toying with him, I don't know where it's going exactly, but for now she pulls him back in when she needs something, and she knows that she has a power over him so she abuses it."

On her strained relationship with her daughter, Faye [Phoebe Tonkin]: "She has real love for her daughter, and puts her in some precarious situations, but you'll truly believe at the end of the day that there really is a good reason for them, and that the world will be a better place if she stays on her path of wickedness."

I absolutely love the idea of exploring magic; since of all the "supernaturals" it's the only one that's really practiced - and ancient and not a myth; sometimes a religion, sometimes a dalliance. The way the scene was done with the water - earth magic - was really stunning. I liked it better than the Twilight version of "sparklies."

I want the prize! But, to be honest and fair - no one that age who'd just lost her mother would drive across country unless her Grandmother was a real nutcase, and I don't think she'd be coping nearly that well after a MONTH....it would have been a better idea to have it be a year later, perhaps. I certainly didn't cope that well for at least a year after my mother died. And, Grandma letting young boy in late at night after going to the "source" complaining about secrets, but NOT listening in? Ummm....naaah.

So, I loved the shots, I loved the weather magic (reminds me of Weather Warden's series,) but I'm not completely buying it rationally. Because hmmm, if your mother had just been burned to death and you were trapped in a burning car, you'd be fine when the stars on your ceiling started spinning that night?

Fun for fantasy, not so great for mental health issues, lol!

Just saw the Secret Pilot and I'm in and looking forward to more episodes. I thought it was sufficiently creepy and setup some good mysteries. And I liked that the parents have some mystery surrounding them too.

I watched The Secret Circle since it came on after The Vampire Diaries. I wasn't sure about it but I watched the pilot and it seems like it could be a really good show.
