“Disturbing Behavior”

FAMILY TIES — Still in Chicago, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) uses Gloria (guest star Charmin Lee), a witch he knew long ago, to help him track down missing information that will explain why his plan isn’t working. Gloria’s spells reveal intriguing glimpses of the truth, but she soon realizes she needs Stefan’s (Paul Wesley) knowledge to complete the puzzle. When Stefan suddenly finds himself in danger, help comes from a surprising ally. Back in Mystic Falls, a frustrating new enemy pushes Damon (Ian Somerhalder) over the brink and he lashes out in a way that will have lasting consequences. Caroline (Candice Accola) struggles with her own emotional issues, even as she tries to help Elena (Nina Dobrev) face her feelings. Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) makes a brief but disturbing breakthrough with one of his ghostly visitors, leaving him more confused than ever. Finally, Bonnie (Kat Graham) has a strange encounter that will affect everyone. Matt Davis also stars. Wendey Stanzler directed the episode written by Brian Young (#304).

TVD: Candice Accola Promises Caroline Will Kick Ass in Season 3


Having discussed Season 3 with Candice Accola, who plays Caroline, on the Atlanta-area ‘Vampire Diaries’ set just a few weeks ago, AOL TV knows that her character is safe (for now). Accola spilled plenty of scoop about Caroline’s budding romance with werewolf Tyler, the sex scenes that make her dad uncomfortable, and Caroline’s mindset this year, but she played coy about her impending daddy issues. Frankly, we’re kind of worried that she’s such a fantastic liar.

Okay. Tell me about Caroline and Tyler.
Caroline and Tyler. The writers have already come out to the press saying that they’re really comparing it to Romeo and Juliet’s love story, which is very very sweet and very romantic and thrilling, but they die at the end, which doesn’t sound very exciting for Michael and myself in keeping a job! So, hopefully it’s not too Romeo and Juliet.

Well, Julie Pleck describe their situation as, and I quote, “animalistic sexual tension.”
Wow, my dad’s going to be super uncomfortable. That’s my biggest fear right now — I’m terrified.

There was a very sexy scene in the Season 3 trailer.
Let’s just say that what fans and viewers have to look forward to is my father, Kevin Accola, being very uncomfortable.

Will you tell him ahead of time?
Yeah, because I learned the first season. On episode two, when Caroline and Damon had their thing, I kind of warned him. And I called my mom to ask, “What happened?!” I guess there was a promo afterwards with Nina in a bra, and apparently he was like, “It’s just not natural. It’s just not natural. First it’s my daughter, and then all of a sudden her friend, and they’re children, and it’s just not natural!” So, it’s about to get real unnatural in Season 3. [Laughs.] Quote from the interview. “It’s about to get real unnatural.”

It seems that Caroline and Tyler might have mom issues because Mrs. Lockwood knows about vampires in town.
I will say that, coming into season three, Caroline and her mother have a great relationship. So as far as Caroline’s concerned, with parental figures in her life everything is actually really really great. What I love about coming into this season is that the writers brought together the girls a little bit more, so there’s a lot more Elena, Bonnie, and Caroline scenes. So in the midst of all of this drama going on, there’s a birthday party, and the girls are about to go back to school. They bring back those fun, very teenage, nostalgic teenage moments. Not teenage in the sense of ‘LOL!,’ but nostalgic teenage moments that we all love so dearly on television and in high school-based television based shows. So in the realm of parental figures, Tyler might have some stressful situations coming up, but Caroline is pretty good. [Ed. note: How excellent of a liar is she?! No mention of the daddy situation.]

So how is Caroline’s relationship with Bonnie and Elena?
I think the great thing about young girls becoming really great friends is … that [attitude] of “I’m just going to be honest to your face, right now.” What I love about how the writers work is that every supernatural experience is very humanized. If your friend is in a relationship and her boyfriend is being a complete non-existent D-bag who’s not texting or calling her back, as her friend you’re obligated and you should want to say something. It definitely creates opportunities for them to be honest again in their friendship.

How is Caroline taking Stefan being gone and going crazy? Because he’s kind of a mentor to her.
To be frank, Caroline’s very focused on party planning — that’s at the top of her list right now. Caroline’s very good at being in denial, so if she has a party to focus on, that is the number one priority. Stefan’s off doing crazy God-knows-what, and that’s fine because Caroline does not have enough cups, and these are priorities, people!

That’s good — that’s what high school girls should be thinking about.
Exactly. Party cups! Sponsored by Solo.

What is Caroline’s main goal for the year?
I’ve been asking the writers. [Laughs] To be quite honest, as much as the viewers think that all the writers have everything planned out, they do have a master plan but they don’t let it really constrict them into really having to stick to it. Coming into the show we all heard these crazy master plans, and we all learned pretty quickly that things were subject to change. So you have to take it with a whole tablespoon of salt. Caroline’s agenda right now thus far in the season is really just about her friends. She’s finally found a secure place within herself, so it’s nice that she’s starting to focus her energy on her friends again. I think that in Season 1 she was very focused on herself as an insecure being, and just as she became comfortable, bam, she was turned into a vampire. So again, she had to do a lot of work on herself. Now she’s pretty cool, still neurotic but pretty collected, so she’s putting her energy into her friends.

My next question comes from Twitter. The people would love to know if Dana has interrupted anyone this season.
Dana does come back. Dana comes back for an episode this season. I know, I saw the Twitter picture of the ‘Not Now Dana’ pillow and I want one. So if you’re watching, I will send you a thank you card, or a picture — I’ll try to get everyone on the cast to sign something for a ‘Not Now Dana’ pillow.

When the ‘Not Now Dana’ thing first started, I didn’t know what people were talking about.
Oh yeah, it’s become a thing now. Zach [Roerig, who plays Matt] actually has a couple of things that we all quote. It’s gone by season. In the first season, the first half of it was, “Vicky, what the hell?!” ’cause he said that a lot. If you look back at the episodes he said, “Vicky, what the hell?!” a lot. His most recent was “Not now, Dana!” So Zach gets told that all the time. It’s pretty hilarious.

It is. Do you want a catchphrase like that? People still come up to me and go, “Hi, Mom.” Or “Everybody needs to stop kissing me!” You always know when you have a good one-liner when at least ten male crewmembers that you would never think would come up to you are excited for the line. For the “Hi, Mom” thing, like the week before shooting that scene I’d have all these different people go up to me and be like “Hi, Mom.” Yep, that’s what I get to say next week and now everyone’s putting a lot of pressure on it, and now I do not want to mess up and make it lame! [Laughs]

It’s kind of heartbreaking, too — it’s a sad line to quote!
I know! But of course I have blood, and after pistol-whipping two cops, and kicking Uncle Mason in the … uh … the bathing suit area.

I was wondering what you were gonna go with there.
I know, I was going through my Rolodex. Eh, I’ll stick with “bathing suit area.”

So, is Caroline going to kick some ass again this year?
Yes, Caroline gets her ass-kicking on.

Do you like doing those scenes?
I do! I do, the only thing is, I haven’t done a lot of film work and I’ve never done a stunt in a film. I would assume that there’s a little more prep time. With an episodic series, the stunt team works out the stunts ahead of time and you can see it on the video really quick, but once you get in there it’s like, “boys will be boys.” So they’re like, “Yeah! So you kick someone! Grab them by the neck! And so and so’s fighting! And you throw a hit! And you twirl around!” And you’re like, “Yeah!” And the boys are like “Okay! Let’s do this!” And I’m like, “Woah, woah, woah. I will be throwing my fist by your face — like, safety police!” I’m the safety police every single time, because all it takes is that one black eye, and that would be a snow day in our world. So we’ll see. If everyone gets that tired, I guess I’ll throw a punch for the greater good. But the stunt scenes are very, very fun, and we have a great stunt team. But I am so neurotic — I’m like the character and my mother when it comes to safety.



TVD: A Closer Look at The End of the Affair with Julie Plec

Executive Producer Julie Plec takes us back to the Roaring 20′s in a new preview clip from this week’s episode of “The Vampire Diaries”, entitled “The End of the Affair”. Flash back to Stefan’s old ripper days this Thursday, September 29th, at 8:00 pm, when we also find out exactly what guest star Jack Coleman has in store for the much beloved Caroline.


TVD: Is Taylor Kinney set to make an Uncle Mason return?


Taylor Kinney has made a rather high-profile excursion to Atlanta, where the show films. (It’s tough to keep your whereabouts a secret when you’ve got Lady Gaga on your arm. Undercover isn’t really her thing.) They were spotted together at a Braves game, and Michael Trevino, his on-screen nephew, has tweeted a few times about visiting with Gaga in Atlanta.

Sources tell us that “The Vampire Diaries” cast is currently hard at work on a ghost-themed Halloween episode, set to air Oct. 27. Word is that Hot Uncle Mason won’t be the only familiar face who haunts Mystic Falls… expect some other dearly departed faves to return, too.



TVD: Zach Roerig Says Elena Could End up With Matt


Wetpaint Entertainment: Matt and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) have a little bromance going on this season. Will the whole ghost thing put their friendship in jeopardy?
Zach Roerig: Oh no, no. Not at all. It’s just the opposite. I think it will bring their relationship closer.

Should we trust Vicki?
Zach Roerig: Well, I’m not sure how the audience feels about Vicki, but regardless of how the audience reacts, Matt, I think, is very excited about it. He never got to be really close with his sister. He was essentially all alone in this town so being able to bond with his sister will make him feel like he’s a little more in the loop, so to speak.

We’ve seen other interviews where you seem pretty happy about the Caroline/Tyler (Michael Trevino) relationship. Do you think Matt’s over Caroline?

Zach Roerig: Matt and Caroline were a great couple, but I think that now that Tyler is a werewolf and Caroline’s a vampire, they have a bond that Matt’s never going to be able to fully understand. I think Matt will kind of step back from the situation and realize that the two of them are kind of right for each other.

Nina Dobrev has said that she thinks Elena’s main motivation is to be normal and have a family. For this reason, do you think Matt should ultimately end up with Elena?
Zach Roerig: I think one of the main reasons that Matt Donovan plays such a strong role in Mystic Falls is his relationship with Elena. And whether we see a lot of that now or not, it’s always implied in the past. Ultimately with Matt and Elena, they could, should, possibly end up being together. I just feel like there will eventually come a time in their lives when they realize that they can’t keep living this way.

You told us last year that you wanted Matt to be more involved with the town council. Is there still any hope for that?
Zach Roerig: No, not that I’m aware of, but I still think it would be very nice to have Matt be part of the council, but now that the Sheriff’s daughter is a vampire and Carol Lockwood’s [Susan Walters] son is a werewolf it’s almost like there needs to be a reestablished council. You know, one that keeps working with the vampires and one that keeps working with the werewolves. And Matt could go back to each group — working with the vampires half the time and working with the werewolves half the time. I think Matt would fit in very well there, establishing order.

Any hints about who the Big Bad is going to be this season, other than Klaus? Is it going to be Caroline’s father?

Zach Roerig: I don’t think it will be Caroline’s father, because ultimately every parent on our show tries to do right thing in their minds, the right thing being the way they were raised. I feel like they’re moved by their love of their children, so I don’t think he would be that guy at all.

Lighting round! Tell us the first word that comes to mind for these TVD characters:

Damon: Witty

Elena: Headstrong

Stefan: Compassionate

Matt: [Laughs] All American

Caroline: Spunky

Tyler: Insane

Alaric: Drunk

Bonnie: Crafty

Vicki: [Candice Accola shouting from the passenger seat] Hot!

Klaus: [Candice and Zach confer] The bees knees.
