'The Vampire Diaries' Exec Producer Julie Plec Teases Next Week & the Finale

by Maggie Furlong, posted Apr 29th 2011 12:01AM
Hey 'Vampire Diaries' fans -- you still breathing?

What an episode! I posted a little preview earlier today, but there's nothing you can say to prepare for something like that. Now that it's happened and you've seen it too, I've got a little bit more from the press Q&A with executive producer Julie Plec to help clarify things a bit.

Obviously, SPOILERS AHEAD, so if you haven't yet watched 'The Last Day,' keep reading at your own risk. While I won't spoil anything coming up, there's plenty of dirt about what happened tonight, including Damon's need for forgiveness, Elena's very un-'Twilight'-like speech and how Aunt Jenna got thrown into the middle of everything. So yeah, spoilers.

Plec also gives some good scoop on next week's "big, powerful, enormous, emotional" episode and the season finale. Keep reading for more ...

'The Vampire Diaries' Preview: More Originals, Tyler's Return, Finale Death Count & More

'The Vampire Diaries' - 'The Last Day''The Vampire Diaries' is one of those shows that always keeps me guessing. Having seen tonight's episode, 'The Last Day' (Thursday, April 28, 8PM ET on The CW), I will say that fans of the mushy romance and friendship stuff AND fans of major action will both be satisfied.

And that's all I'll say about that. No spoilers here. But I do have some fun teases from the cast after yesterday's press screening and Q&A.

Executive producer Julie Plec and stars Katerina Graham, Steven R. McQueen, Michael Trevino, Daniel Gillies and the newest addition Joseph Morgan all dished a bit about tonight's episode and what else is in store for the last two episodes of the season.

They also discussed the much-talked-about death count, dealing with fan backlash, Tyler's return and learning more about the Originals. After all, as Plec shared, "Season 3 is very much the season of the Originals."

Mwuhahaha! Keep reading for more, and check back after tonight's episode (when you'll be freaking out for sure) for teases of next week and the big season finale.

CW wrap-up: Vampire Diaries, Melrose Place, Life Unexpected - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Aug 4th 2009 8:28PM
Life UnexpectedThe CW's TCA panels today were full of beautiful people. It seemed like all the shows were about young pretty things in scandalous situations. Even the highly-anticipated Vampire Diaries didn't look much different, except some of the over-sexed high schoolers were vampires. But one show shined through the pretty clutter in the CW's new slate. Too bad we won't see it until early 2010.

That show is Life Unexpected, which CW programming head Dawn Ostroff described as "Juno meets Gilmore Girls." After seeing the pilot, I can agree with that description. It's sweet, warm, even a little bit hokey. In fact, it feels like a show that would have been on the old WB network. What the heck is it doing on the CW?

My post-Comic-Con report, part two

Friday

Morning was weird, as I was still on east-coast time. My alarm was set for 7 AM, but I was wide-awake by 5:30. I was scheduled to go to an X-Box breakfast that morning, but I was getting freaked out that I'd miss getting in to wait for the Stargate panels, most of which I was saving for Rich but I knew would be incredibly popular and busy. Thankfully I made the right decision -- the line for Ballroom 20 was already insane by the time I arrived.

As I waited for Ballroom 20, I saw another line creeping up the patio outside. I learned that this was just a glimpse of what to expect with waiting for panels in the enormous Hall H, as the line I saw was for the popular Watchmen panel. Trust me, part of me was jealous I wasn't in that line to see the new footage.
