Janina Gavanka from ‘True Blood’ and ‘Arrow’ to move to ‘Vampire Diaries’

It was announced earlier that Janina Gavankar of “True Blood” and “Arrow” fame is moving to “The Vampire Diaries“. Janina Gavankar will be playing a vampire named Tessa. Tessa will be shown in the third episode that is said to be a flashback show that will show her connection to a vampire in Mystic Falls. She is said to be there to rekindle an old flame.

The addition of Janina Gavankar should add to the steamy relationships on the angsty teen show. Now, with Katherine on the run, Elena and Caroline at college and Bonnie dead there really needs to be a female in Mystic Falls. And Tessa should make that perfect addition.

So, who do you think that she has the hot past with? Will it be Damon or Stefan? Will she be competition for Elena? Or possibly someone from Silas’ past. Honestly, I am tired of Damon and Stefan’s past loves and am hoping that it is someone new.

“The Vampire Diaries” airs on Thursday evenings at 8:00 pm.

Spoilers: What is the future of Stefan and Silas on ‘Vampire Diaries’

The finale of “Vampire Diaries” left everyone wondering what is going to happen with Stefan and if he will escape the bottom of the river. There are also questions about Silas and what he will do at the beginning of the next season.

Here is what has been revealed thus far:


  • Stefan is Silas’ doppleganger and that this is the loophole for immortality
  • We know that Silas may not be around town the entire time but he will returning back to town
  • Silas’ agenda is still the same which is to take the cure, get rid of the other side and pass on and find peace in death
  • Silas is going to use his psychic ability to trick the residents of Mystic Falls into thinking he is Stefan
  • There are supposed to be some funny times at the beginning of the season

Here is what writer, Julie Plec said to TVline.com about Paul Wesley’s role as both Stefan and Silas:


“He is so happy,” Julie laughs. “Playing the straight man hero is not always the most exciting job for an actor, and Stefan, of all our heroes, is the straightest on the show. We get to go deeper into his ripper side sometimes, but for Paul, those moments are just pocket moments of opportunity to dig deeply into his craft, and a lot of other times he feels like he’s just grooming his hero hair. So obviously, he’s very enthusiastic about this, and has been supportive of it all along. He’s been dying for something; to be a jerk, to be evil, to be the bad guy, to be able to stretch his muscles.”


“The Vampire Diaries” is scheduled to return this fall on The CW.


How do you think the next season will go with the Silas/Stefan storyline?

Video of Elena’s first moments as a vampire are revealed on CW clip

On Friday, the CW released a clip showing Elena’s first moments as a vampire on the fourth season of “The Vampire Diaries“.

The video may be seen here.

It shows a very concerned Damon and Stefan waiting by Elena’s side. they are both waiting for her to awake and when she does the two fall right into their characters.

Stefan tries to sugar coat the explanation for Elena while Damon shows his anger towards Stefan for saving Matt first.

When she realizes that she is really dead, Elena reacts the way that we expect. She is mad.

But, this season should be really interesting because it has been confirmed that Elena will spend the first part of the season with Stefan and the second part with Damon. The turning point is when her human memories return, the glamouring that Damon did to make her forget that she met him is gone and she remembers their conversation.

This is going to be a very interesting season. What do you think about the video?

‘Vampire Diaries’ spoilers include more about Elena, Damon, Stefan triangle

Hollywood Hills reported today that Damon and Elean fans will be happy during season four of the CW hit, “Vampire Diaries” because even though Elena chose Stefan at the end of the season the romance of Elena and Damon is only beginning.

There is confirmation earlier from writer Julie Plec, that Stefan will have a hard time dealing with Elena being a vampire. Her acceptance for who she is and his anger towards Matt will really hurt their relationship. Stefan and Elena will begin the season together but that is not how it is going to stay.

But, what will really cause the issue is that Elena will slowly remember her first conversation with Damon, his confession of love for her and this will really love him even more.

So , who do you want Elena with? How do you think Katherine will take the news about Elena? Will she mad that Elena won’t die off soon and the brothers won’t loose her soon.

Vampire Diaries’ writer talks about roles of Bonnie and Klaus

On Tuesday, Julie Plec, the writer for CW’s supernatural show, “Vampire Diaries” discusses the future of two secondary characters, Bonnie and Klaus with TVLine.com.

First, she stated that she felt like Bonnie was the hero of the season finale because she came up with a plan that actually worked and saved all of the main character’s lives, well in so many words.

It was her plan to have Klaus inhabit Tyler’s body so that the heroes could survive. She really kicked up her powers and took charge. Damon has said in previous episodes that their plans never work out because Elena seems to screw them up well Bonnie took charge and fixed everything for everyone.

Plec called Bonnie “the shows true hero” because she actually came up with a plan for once that worked as it should be.

But, what about Klaus and his part in this. Well, Plec had said that they had planned on killing him off in the finale but that the viewers really liked the character so they decided to keep him alive, in some form.

But, what does this mean for Klaus next season? Well Tyler will be playing part of Klaus’ parts because Klaus is inside Tyler’s body.

Plec says that Klaus will play a major part in season four and that a lot of it will center on Rebekkah and Tyler.

What are you watching instead of “Vampire Diaries”? What is quenching your thirst?

‘Vampire Diaries’ season three recap with slideshow

‘Vampire Diaries’ season three recap with slideshow

Last night, the season three finale of the “Vampire Diaries” aired and boy did it have a lot of surprises for the viewers. But, one could say that the entire season was packed full of action and romance.

The love triangles and romances were intense- Elena and Stefan, Elena and Damon, Rebekkah and Damon, Caroline and Tyler, Klaus and Caroline, and Jeremy and Bonnie.

The switching of enemies to allies to enemies and back again was confusing. There was more backstabbing in one episode than there is in most other shows in a season. Klaus was bad, then you began to like him and then well he dies. Rebekkah was hated then got close to Elena and she almost seemed human. She then turned again and got hurt by Damon and then tried to kill Elena. She will definitely be ousted this next season, at least for a little while.

Elijah changed his allegiance by going back and forth with hating his brother and then wanting to help again.

But, I think the big bad of the season that was so sad was Alric. Alric was the only adult that Elena and Jeremy had to turn to and then he turned evil and then into a vampire and hunter. It seems as if there is no one that Elena can trust not even Stefan.

It seemed that this season Damon, who is always viewed as bad, came out the cleanest this season.

Season three was the most intense and the best yet. No one was safe and that is why viewers love the show. 

Well, enjoy the slideshow of the pictures from season three and comment on your favorite.
