'The Vampire Diaries' Season 3, Episode 7 Recap

by Crystal Bell, posted Oct 28th 2011 12:01AM
['The Vampire Diaries' -- 'Ghost World']

I wasn't exactly thrilled by Mason's return to Mystic Falls in 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' -- especially because I knew he was back to seek revenge on Damon -- but OMG I love Lexi. Seriously, she's probably one of my favorite characters in 'TVD' history, even though she's only really been in a handful of episodes. And after seeing the way she smashed Stefan's head into the window of a car, how could you not love her?!

All of the girls in Mystic Falls have some serious problems. Their boyfriends are either dead, undead, in love with dead girls or are crazy rippers. So it's nice to have a strong, badass female character in the mix -- because the status of Katherine's life is still TBD at the moment.

'The Vampire Diaries' Star Steven R. McQueen On Whether Jeremy's Dead Exes Will Get 'Ghost'-ly

Steven R. McQueenDarn, those 'Vampire Diaries' actors are tough nuts to crack. Not since the days of 'Lost' has a cast been so tight-lipped about upcoming storylines ... we're starting to think that boss man Kevin Williamson threatens his stars with a gruesome on-screen death if they spill something they shouldn't.

We caught up with Steven R. McQueen (who plays Jeremy Gilbert) and, true to form, we discovered more about what he couldn't tell us than what he could.

Still, the few tidbits he did let slip hint at an intriguing few episodes ahead. We touched on Jeremy's relationship with Bonnie (Katerina Graham), his connection to the ghostly apparitions of Anna (Malese Jow) and Vicki (Kayla Ewell) and how his newfound ability links to Matt's (Zach Roerig).

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

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

by Maggie Furlong, posted Apr 28th 2011 3:45PM
'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.

'The Vampire Diaries' - 'Blood Brothers' Recap

The Vampire Diaries, Paul Wesley, Blood Brothers
(S01E20) "You're back on Bambi blood, and I'm a badass big brother again. All is right in the world." - Damon to Stefan

A jealous brother, an evil uncle, and a trusting girlfriend all played into this episode of 'The Vampire Diaries.' We also got some flashbacks that revealed more of the Salvatore brothers' backstory and why Damon hates Stefan so much. Although, really, if he hated him that much, he wouldn't have organized the rescue mission to extract Stefan out of the vampires' farmhouse lair. Maybe he did it more for Elena than anything else.

And is it just me, or are Damon and Elena getting awfully chummy lately? I'll answer my own question: yes, they are.

Review: The Vampire Diaries - Bloodlines

The Vampire Diaries: Bloodlines
(S01E11) Yay! The Vampire Diaries is back, and they covered a lot of stuff in this episode. More questions, a few answers, new relationships, more sinister stuff. We picked up right where we left off in the previous episode, with Elena driving tearfully away from Stefan after seeing Katherine's picture, getting into a car crash and seeing an unknown person approaching.

At first, I thought it was Damon, but he arrived a second later to pull her out of the car. There's something satisfying about seeing Damon speeding down the road in a muscle car with Elena in the passenger seat. She doesn't really fit into the whole damsel-in-distress thing. I mean, she's her own person, but yet you can feel that there's something between her and Damon.

Review: The Vampire Diaries - The Turning Point

The Vampire Diaries: The Turning Point
(S01E10) "Too bad I live alone. I'm at the Ramada watching pay-per-view all day eating everything in sight, including the housekeeping." - Logan, since there's no one at his home to invite him in

As you can see, I'm a little crazy for Paul Wesley and all those muscles, so there ya go. Here's another one, in case you missed last week's episode, "History Repeating." He shows more and more skin with each episode.

We got lots more action and intrigue in this episode, involving Logan, the Sheriff, Caroline and of course, Elena, Damon and Stefan. And they certainly couldn't let the vampires-in-the-church storyline just drop, could they? Of course not. More after the jump.

Review: The Vampire Diaries - History Repeating

The Vampire Diaries
(S01E09) I was pretty much riveted to this episode of The Vampire Diaries all the way through, but especially at the end, when we learned a whole lot of stuff in the last few minutes. It was fun seeing the vamp brothers Stefan and Damon sort of buddy up, even if it wasn't really real. Given their long history, you have to think there must be some brotherly ... something there, even though Damon killed Stefan's BFF last week and then Stefan nearly killed Damon. Oh those kooky vampire brothers.

Review: The Vampire Diaries - 162 Candles

The Vampire Diaries: 162 Candles
(S01E08) "It's not every day a guy turns 162 years old." - Lexi to Stefan on his birthday

What?! Nooooo! They keep bringing in these great characters and then killing them off! Hopefully, they're just stashing the bodies somewhere for a mass resurrection at some point. And, by the way, I totally did not see that coming.

The Vampire Diaries started out great and continues to get better each week. It's so beautifully dark and gloomy. I love the Salvatore's gothic digs, and Stefan is showing considerable restraint at not offing his bad, bad brother Damon.

Review: The Vampire Diaries - Haunted

The Vampire Diaries - Vicki
(S01E07) "So she's a vampire with issues?" - Elena to Stefan about Vicki

Well! In case you haven't watched this week's episode yet, I'll save the big spoiler for after the jump. Suffice to say that things are jumping in The Vampire Diaries, and for some characters, that's not necessarily a good thing.

I continue to love the show and look forward to it every week (and was seriously bummed when it wasn't on last week!). In a sea of mediocre new shows (well, mediocre to me anyway), that IS a good thing.

The Vampire Diaries: Lost Girls

Paul Wesley, The Vampire Diaries
(S01E06) "Everything you know and every belief that you have is about to change. Are you ready for that?" - Stefan to Elena

And to finish that thought ... "I'm a vampire." So Elena knows now; no more speculating or wondering. My first thought was that Elena knows that Stefan is a good vampire. He even races to tell her: "I would never hurt you. You're safe with me." So why is she so freaked out? Because he's a vampire, of course, and who wouldn't be freaked out by that?

I'm loving The Vampire Diaries.

The Vampire Diaries: You're Undead to Me
(S01E05) "I'm not going to be one of those pathetic girls whose world stops spinning because of some guy." - Elena to Jenna, about Stefan


Ok, well, we'll see about that. Something tells me that by the next episode or two, Elena's world will indeed stop spinning. And then start spinning wildly out of control. She already knows something's up. She already knows in the darkest part of her heart that Stefan is a vampire. She just needs him to confirm it.

The Vampire Diaries: Family Ties

The Vampire Diaries: Family Ties(S01E04) "How do I fight the monster without becoming one myself?" - Stefan

I know The Vampire Diaries has been taking a beating from some TV reviewers, but I'm actually loving it so far. A lot of it has to do with bad-vamp Damon, played so deliciously evil by Ian Somerhalder. He's manipulative and just plain scuzzy, but he's also really cute. That's a bad combo for impressionable girls.

At this point, it's hard to imagine that Elena would fall for any of Damon's tricks. Then again, he did get her to believe that Stefan was actually the manipulative one, dating back to when the two brothers sparred over Katherine. Elena is either really, really stupid or she's being played by a master manipulator in Damon. Maybe a little of both.

Vampire Diaries snags Steve McQueen's grandson

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 1st 2009 1:10PM
Steven R. McQueen - Vampire DiariesI'm neck-deep in the midst of a vampire obsession. I'm one of the Twi-hards eagerly awaiting the Nov. 20 release of Stephenie Meyer's next vamp-flick, New Moon. I was immediately sucked into HBO's True Blood, and can't wait for its return in May.

I recently sped through the short-lived Moonlight and fell in love with Mick St. John. And its taken me all of about a week to get to season three of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (though I don't know if I can take much more of the on again-off again romance of Buffy and Angel - don't tell me how it plays out).

I'm sure I'll be equally enthralled with The CW pilot, Vampire Diaries. It doesn't hurt that Steven R. McQueen, grandson of the legendary Steve McQueen has landed a lead role. I bet even those not as enamored with vamps will tune in just to see him: Does he look like his grandfather? Act like him? Have the same "something"?
