Browse our gallery of mind-blowing moments — from Elena’s breakup to Katherine’s return — and vote for your favorite!
With almost a month to go until the next new episode of The Vampire Diaries — on March 14, Elena becomes a “dangerous” cheerleader, so I hope you’re excited — we at HollywoodLife.com are taking time to reflect on the epic mess that has been season four thus far. From hot hookups, to shocking deaths, to gratuitous shirt-rips, we’re counting down our favorite “WTF” moments from the fourth season. You know, so far.
Spoiler alert: Stop reading if — for some reason — you still don’t know who died last week on ‘The Vampire Diaries!’
Death on The Vampire Diaries is a lot like sneezing — it’s rare not to experience it at least a few times a day, and often in rapid succession — but not since Alaric’s passing at the end of season three have fans been this devastated.
When ‘The Vampire Diaries’ returns with new episodes March 14, fans will have a whole new reason to be terrified of organized sports.
We all knew Elena (Nina Dobrev) would be ‘different’ after losing Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen), but rejoining the Mystic Falls High School cheerleading squad? That’s not making progress, that’s regressing! Either way, the March 14 episode of The Vampire Diaries — appropriately titled “Bring It On” — finds Elena shaking her pom-poms yet again, but Caroline (Candice Accola) quickly realizes this might actually be making Elena’s problems worse.
Plus, Elena metaphorically burns her past in an attempt to move forward. But also literally. She literally burns down her past.
“My brother can’t be dead!” This was pretty much Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) mantra through the first half of The Vampire Diaries‘ Feb. 21 episode — until she finally realized that Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) is, in fact, super dead. Then came the real show: tears, screaming, the works. It’s like she’d been bottling up all of her reactions from the millions of deaths in her family — her real parents, her fake parents, Jenna, Alaric, and now Jeremy — then decided to release it all in one CW-Emmy-worthy explosion of rage and grief.
Nina Dobrev previews Elena’s downward spiral ‘into a black hole of death and sadness and misery.’ Yeah, it’s about to get real in Mystic Falls.
While many Vampire Diaries fans refuse to accept that Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) really died at the hand(s) of Silas last week, his on-screen sister confirms his passing in a shocking new interview with Entertainment Tonight. In a nutshell — emphasis on the nut part — Elena’s got a rough road ahead of her. “Elena could go off the deep end now that she doesn’t have the one thing that kept her human,” Nina Dobrev reveals. “She won’t take it lightly. It’s going to destroy her.”
Things seem dire for Little Gilbert, but this new clip from the Feb. 21 episode gives us a glimmer of hope. Watch!
Vampire Diaries fans screamed/tweeted in horror Feb. 14 when Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) was presumably killed at the hands of Silas, and in this just-released preview clip from next week’s episode, Bonnie (Kat Graham) gets to have her own meltdown over the news. And the worst part? She has to hear it from Shane (David Alpay!)
Silas? Elena? Bonnie’s Mom? (Just kidding, she sucks.) Vote for the character YOU think deserves the cure!
In the world of The Vampire Diaries, the cure is the new moonstone; everybody wants to get their dirty little vampire hands on it. Unfortunately, as we learned on the Feb. 14 episode, only one person will get their wish as only a single dose exists. And now that Silas’ resurrection has begun — thanks a lot, Katherine! — this question has never been more important: Who should get the cure?
The race for the cure may have cost one member of the ‘TVD’ gang his (or her) life!
Still bumming around on the island, the Mystic Falls gang was dealt a major blow on the Feb. 14 episode of The Vampire Diaries when they learned there’s only one dose of the cure! Of course, that piece of news paled in comparison to the crushing loss suffered in the episode’s final moments — and the shocking return I didn’t see coming.
Huge, major, game-changing spoilers ahead…
A fan-favorite character is on her (or his) way to Mystic Falls! Could it be our old friend Katherine?
It’s been too long since we’ve seen Katherine (Nina Dobrev) on The Vampire Diaries — more specifically, far too long — but a new spoiler gives suffering fans a glimmer of hope. HollywoodLife.com‘s sister site TVLine recently teased that “an imminemt, shocking and much-anticipated return” is about to take place, and I can’t help but keep my fingers/toes/fangs crossed that they’re referencing Elena’s other fanged persona.
Now all three remaining Mikaelsons — Klaus, Elijah & Rebekah — will appear on the back-door pilot, airing April 25.
I’ve got some good news for Claire Holt — and some very bad news for fans of Rebekah’s re-budding relationship with Stefan (Paul Wesley) on The Vampire Diaries: The Australian actress has officially joined the cast of The CW’s purposed TVD spin-off, The Originals!
The gang needs Klaus’ help to find Damon, Jeremy & Bonnie! Will Caroline have to take advantage of Klaus’ love for her?
What happens on the island doesn’t always stay on the island, as this new clip from the Feb. 14 episode of The Vampire Diaries reveals. Elena (Nina Dobrev) calls Caroline (Candice Accola) to update her about their missing pals — Damon (Ian Somerhalder), Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) are all M.I.A. — and things quickly take an ‘Original’ turn.
Leah will play Camille, an intelligent human with no knowledge of vampires — yet.
The Originals is getting its first taste of human blood! Leah Pipes has been cast in the back-door pilot of The Vampire Diaries‘ spin-off as Camille, described by The Hollywood Reporter as “a college psychology student fascinated by the study of human behavior unaware of the supernatural universe that exists around her.”
Watch this new clip from the Feb. 14 episode for an update on Stefan & Elena’s complicated relationship.
This week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries may be airing on Valentine’s Day, but love is definitely not in the air between Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Elena (Nina Dobrev), as they officially solidify their relationship status as “friends.” But in true TVD fashion, Rebekah (Claire Holt) misinterprets the interaction as more than friendly as she watches the exes interact from a distance.
The past three episodes have shown Stefan & Rebekah’s development as a couple, both physically and emotionally. Who could possibly deny ‘Stebekah’ now?
When Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) called it quits on the Nov. 15 episode of The Vampire Diaries, some fans feared the sensitive Salvatore would never find happiness again. Little did they know, his perfect match — and ex-girlfriend, Rebekah (Claire Holt) — was just a dagger pull away! Allow me to explain why Stefan and Rebekah make a bloody good couple, and why I really hope they’re given a future together.
Plus, Professor Shady Eyebrows’ dark plan is finally revealed!
The Mystic Falls gang was island-bound on the Feb. 7 episode of The Vampire Diaries, in the hopes of finding the cure for vampirism — but what they really needed to find was a cure for all the D-R-A-M-A! Not only did Elena (Nina Dobrev) spend the entire hour locking fangs with Rebekah (Claire Holt), but everyone’s favorite doppelganger also gave Damon (Ian Somerhalder) a bit of an ultimatum — and I can’t imagine she was too thrilled with his response. Oh, and Shane (David Alpay) is even shadier than we thought.
