Ian Somerhalder heading home to hand out 'Vampire Diaries' beads at Mardi Gras -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

New Orleans might be the setting for Vampire Diaries spin-off The Originals, but it’s also the real-life hometown of Ian Somerhalder. And this year, it seems the vamp-by-day and activist-by-night is heading home to do a little celebrating.

Somerhalder will serve as co-grand marshal (along with The Walking Dead‘s Norman Reedus) during Mardi Gras’ main event, the Krewe of Endymion Parade & Extravaganza. On Saturday, March 1, Somerhalder will hit the streets of New Orleans, and we’ve got an exclusive look at the custom Vampire Diaries beads he will hand out to spectators.

“I am so excited to be coming back to my hometown to ride with Endymion,” Somerhalder told EW exclusively. “I am so grateful. It’s truly an honor.”

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m booking a flight to New Orleans. After all, Somerhalder does have a history of confessing his love when handing over necklaces. Necklaces, beads — what’s the difference?

After 500 years on the run as a vampire, Katherine Pierce is finally human. And with The Vampire Diaries‘ 100th episode centering around the potentially dying woman, we thought it would only be fair to relive some of Katherine Pierce’s feistiest moments. After all, this is the woman who made both Original brothers fall for her hundreds of years before she made both Salvatore brothers fall for her. Then, five seasons ago, she burst onto the Mystic Falls scene in the Vampire Diaries‘ season one finale. She was Elena’s evil doppelganger who had a flair for flirting, a bit of a jealousy problem, and a definite love of the dramatic threat.

Best of 2013: The year's top shipper moments

SPOILER ALERT! Shippers live for the payoff, and in 2013, fans of NCIS, Suits, Castle, Parks and Recreation, and Bones got the ultimate with a goodbye kiss, angry first-time sex in the file room, a proposal, a surprise wedding, and a long-awaited wedding, respectively.

Ditto, Sons of Anarchy fans, who watched Tara and Jax finally reconnect, which only made her exit all the more painful.)

Are television promos ruining good cliffhangers?

I have a love/hate relationship with cliffhangers, as I’m sure most people do. Nothing is more exciting than a good twist, and nothing is more painful than having to wait to find out what will happen next. However, in today’s world of television speed-plotting, I find myself yearning for a genuine cliffhanger, particularly when it comes to mid-season and/or season finales.

What I realized last night is that speed-plotting isn’t the only problem for cliffhangers. In a lot of cases, the antithesis of a genuine cliffhanger seems to be an over-informative episode promo. You spend your summer waiting to find out if a character will live or die only to see them talking in a promo for the upcoming season, and all of a sudden, your urge for the show to come back is cut in half. For example, on this season of Parenthood, my biggest question has been, “Is Julia going to cheat on Joel?” And when promoting the show’s mid-season finale, they not only teased her temptation, but they gave me my answer … and  in a 30-second clip.
