Matt Davis returns to 'Vampire Diaries,' and all the ways that finale was a game-changer

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the season 5 finale of The Vampire Diaries, stop reading now!

I remember about a year ago, Julie Plec tweeted that she’d come up with ending of season 5 of The Vampire Diaries – and in her words, it was a “mind f—.” Guess what? She wasn’t lying.

What happened in last night’s finale — if I’m interpreting it correctly — changes everything we know about the show. In the destruction of the Other Side, not only was Alaric able to come back two seasons after his death, but fans said goodbye to two main characters as Bonnie and Damon held hands and seemingly found peace. But that’s not all that happened: When Tyler came back from the Other Side, he realized that his healing powers had left him. Was he human again?

Assuming all of these plots stick, season 6 could look very, very different from the world we know. Stefan, Elena, Alaric, Tyler, and Enzo could all be human, though some of you argue that Tyler was only human because he died that way. Or more specifically, that he was back to being a werewolf. If that’s the case, then only Tyler will really have changed. Regardless, it’s a lot for viewers to wrap their heads around, but there is one thing I think all Vampire Diaries fans can agree on: We are so excited to have Alaric back. And yes, we’ve confirmed that Matt Davis will be a series regular next season. READ FULL STORY

'The Vampire Diaries': Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley give us their season 6 wish lists

The fate of The Vampire Diaries and where the series goes from Thursday’s finale may be in the hands of executive producers Julie Plec and Caroline Dries, but that doesn’t mean the stars of CW’s steamy vampire drama don’t have their own ideas about what they’d love to see for their characters. We caught up with TVD stars Nina Dobrev (Elena), Paul Wesley (Stefan), and Ian Somerhalder (Damon) to discuss their character wish lists for season 6. Check out what they had to say below: READ FULL STORY

'Vampire Diaries': Paul Wesley teases finale, takes our Pop Culture Personality Test -- VIDEO

Paul-Wesley-PCPT.jpg

As fans of The Vampire Diaries brace for the season 5 finale and hope it ends with Paul Wesley’s Stefan returning from The Other Side, the cast has one recommendation: “Bring a box of tissues because you’re going to cry,” Nina Dobrev tells EW. “I did.”

While Wesley is tight-lipped on the tearjerker, we did get the following out of him at The CW’s Upfront in New York: Viewers will see more familiar faces. Will Stefan interact with them? “Maybe,” he says. Will the hour bring an end to The Other Side storyline? “I sure as hell hope so,” he jokes. And what if Stefan’s still on it if/when it ceases to exist? “Well, s–t happens,” he quips.

Time for questions the man can actually answer? We thought so, too. Watch Wesley take our Pop Culture Personality Test below. He reveals his first celebrity crush, the movie scene that scared him as a child (particularly funny when you think about how Stefan died in season 5′s penultimate episode), his go-to karaoke song, and his most prized pop culture possession. No tears. All laughs. We swear. READ FULL STORY

'The Vampire Diaries': Let's talk about THAT twist!

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the May 8 episode of The Vampire Diaries, stop reading now! I mean it. Don’t you DARE ruin this for yourself!

Last night, my whole world came crashing to the ground … sort of. In the final moments of the Vampire Diaries penultimate episode, the unthinkable happened: The Traveler currently inhabiting Tyler’s body ripped out Stefan’s heart, a.k.a. Stefan is now on the other side and in danger of total extinction, a.k.a. Stefan Salvatore is dead and about two minutes away from being permanently dead dead.

In the moment, my reaction was fairly simple: “No, no, no. But wait, no.” That deep thought was then followed by a second of pure unadulterated fear that this show might actually kill Stefan, a reaction I blame 100 percent on The Good Wife for making me believe anything is possible. But that was quickly followed by a deep breath, and suddenly I was back to the place where I thought this was a great twist, but obviously not something that they could have stick. READ FULL STORY

What Claire Holt's absence could mean for 'The Originals' (and 'Vampire Diaries') -- POLL

The verdict is in: Claire Holt is no longer a series regular on The Originals, a.k.a one of the three Originals that the show is named after, and the only female member of the family, is gone. And to be honest, I’m so surprised by this news that I have barely had time to formulate any sort of real emotion to attach to it.

My first instinct is that it’s a bad move. There were only three living Originals to begin with, and to get rid of one of them is just trimming the possibilities in terms of story. And although I will admit that I find the Klaus-Elijah relationship most entertaining, I do think it’s nice to have another lens through which we can look at these siblings, and that’s what Rebekah was. However, I’m not going to lie — there were times when she was on The Vampire Diaries that I wanted her gone. She was a highly emotional character and could be a lot to take in.

Basically, what you can gather from all of this is that I’m a little scared and a bit skeptical, but I’m putting my faith in this show. Do I think it can exist without Rebekah? Yes. Do I know what that will look like? No, hence the skepticism. Also, I was really into the Rebekah-Marcel dynamic, so if she is going off to get her happy ending, I’m sad that it isn’t with him. I don’t know. This all just feels weird to me. But if it’s something the writers knew was coming and therefore planned for, then I’ll trust them.

But what does this mean for the show? READ FULL STORY
