Happy TVD Thursday! “The Vampire Diaries” continues tonight with an all new episode, “Daddy Issues”. I have a few spoilery goodies to share with my fellow fans. TV Guide has given us a nice round-up, including news about the escalating werewolf~vampire tension, Flashback Falls and the final full moon of the season.
The Vampire-Werewolf War: The conflict between the vampires and werewolves “is going from a simmer to a boil,” Plec says. In the center of it all: star-crossed maybe-lovers werewolf Tyler (Michael Trevino) and vampire Caroline (Candice Accola). “The next few episodes take us down the road of what Tyler knows, what he learns and how it impacts his friendships with Caroline and Matt [Zach Roerig],” Plec says. Adds Paul Wesley: “There are unforeseen alliances.”
Flashback Blood Fever: The series will flash back once again to when Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan were turned into vampires. “Stefan is very Damon-esque,” Wesley says. “He’s lost and he doesn’t know what to do with himself. He’s living in guilt, so he is just sinful and lustful. We get some blood addiction. We’re going back to his days of heavy usage.”
The Final Full Moon: Last season’s arc drove towards the Founders’ Day celebration. “This year, our signposts have been marked by the full moons and I know that we have one more full moon that will be upon us before we hit the end of the season,” Plec says. “Bad, bad things are going to happen as a result of that full moon. We also have this impending ritual — the sacrifice that will break the curse of the sun and the moon. That’s where we’ll end our season.”
