Fans of The Vampire Diaries are still drying their eyes after last night’s episode. I won’t spoil it for you here. (Read our recap.) The events that unfolded at the end of the hour made me wonder what is the best vampire death scene I’ve ever witnessed on TV. What gets your vote? The first one that came to my mind was SPOILER ALERT CIRCA 2001, pregnant Darla (Julie Benz) staking herself to instantly deliver Connor in season 3 of Angel. I just never thought of it before: She dissolves into ashes, and the baby remains. Heartbreaking and cool. Your turn.

The Vampire Diaries returns this Thursday (The CW, 8 p.m. ET), and if you’ve picked up the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, which includes teases from the cast and exec producers, you know that the vampire-werewolf showdown is officially on. Let’s let Michael Trevino, whose Tyler Lockwood just survived his first painful full moon transformation as a werewolf, break it down for you. SPOILER ALERT! “We have Tyler, who is a werewolf, who becomes very close to a vampire [Candice Accola's Caroline], who he thinks is the only vampire in town. And then he starts to actually like her. And then once he finds out the truth, he feels a little bit betrayed by her. But then he also wants to hear out Stefan [Paul Wesley], and how he’s saying we can coexist. And then you have Jules and Brady [the friend of Tyler's dearly departed Uncle Mason who Jules was chatting with on the phone in the last episode who soon arrives in town], who are like, ‘No, don’t listen to them. You don’t want any part of that. This is the way it’s supposed to be. We’re not supposed to be friends with them. You shouldn’t be this close to Caroline. Trust me, it’s not good for you.’ So after all this, all these people coming into Tyler’s head, he has to make a move: What does he want to do? Which way is he gonna live?”
Now here’s where things could get seriously interesting: READ FULL STORY
according to the Wrap. Slap a top hat on the dude, and yeah, I can totally see him as Lincoln. Right? Perhaps this will do for those afflicted with Marfan syndrome the same thing Munich did for the guys of Knocked Up.Eric Bana may play Abraham Lincoln in the upcoming Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter movie,
But if it doesn’t work out for Bana, who should play Lincoln? We all know Mr. Emancipation Proclamation was 6’4, so it’d have to be someone tall and wiry — but with both gravitas and spirit, too. For Vampire Hunter, he’d also have to be sort of action-y. Clive Owen?
Whom would you cast as Abraham Lincoln, PopWatchers?
As our Vampire Diaries withdrawal continues, all fans have to obsess over are episode descriptions, promos, and photos for 2010′s remaining episodes, the Dec. 2 return, and the Dec. 9 midseason cliffhanger. Watch the promo for the first hour, “The Sacrifice,” below. Elena doesn’t want the others to continue risking their lives to save her, so she comes up with her own plan. Jeremy tries to help Bonnie retrieve the moonstone from Katherine, and, we’re guessing, gets a little too close to her and Stefan must come to his rescue. Alaric finally gets naked. And yet, it’s the Dec. 9 synopsis — and accompanying photos — that we find most intriguing…
In “By the Light of the Moon,” the full moon approaches, which means Tyler will be transforming. That exec producer Julie Plec had already filled us in on. We also already knew that Damon and Alaric will rekindle their bromance — turns out it’s to investigate the arrival of Jules (guest star Michaela McManus, pictured), who shows up in Mystic Falls searching for her missing friend, Mason, and, possibly, a shirt that covers her bra. (Actually, I dig that she dresses sexier than the younger ladies on the show, and should she turn out to be a werewolf, like Mason, it would make sense that her body runs hot and she wears as little as possible.)
What I like about these two photos of her is 1) We can’t tell what’s behind that smile of Damon’s. Is it him welcoming her to town, pretending to be genuine; him toasting her because she’s as big a flirt as he is; or him being a smartass and the toast is “Game on”? 2) She’s talking to Matt. Is that just because he’s on the clock at The Grill, or could he fall for the older woman, which, if she is a werewolf, could get very interesting? Clearly, I’m hoping for the latter, because I want to see more of Zach Roerig, and a game of Matt in the Middle would get him some more screentime. Even though Caroline set Matt free, she would be jealous, and her desire to figuratively kill Jules could become literal since wolves and vamps are mortal enemies. Fun! READ FULL STORY
24-hour marathon of the first season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer this Sunday, starting at the bright hour of 6 a.m. EST. Remember, vampires never sleep, so 6 a.m. is fine for them, but for us mortals, be sure to set your DVR to catch this marathon of amazingness. (Public Service Announcement: On Sunday the clocks fall back, so change your clock and enjoy the extra hour that may make an early morning Buffy marathon a bit more enjoyable.)In case you like waking up really early on Sunday mornings and were looking for something to do that involves vampires instead of football, this news is for you: Chiller announced via press release that they will be running a
The marathon kicks off Buffy‘s daily run on Chiller — which begins Monday — and yes, the series will run in order, which is great for newbies and Buffy enthusiasts alike. I, for one, have been catching episodes of Buffy on LOGO, but I’d also really enjoy starting from the very beginning, if only to remind myself why the series was the most memorable show of my teenage years.
As excited as I am to see the first season and laugh at the ’90s fashion, the episode I’m most excited to see is “Angel,” because it’s the episode that got me hooked on Buffy in the first place. The first epic kiss! The star-crossed lovers! A vampire falling in love with a vampire slayer! Which episode of Buffy are you most excited to see, PopWatchers?
mentioned yesterday, EW recently gathered five of the most promising child stars — Mad Men’s Kiernan Shipka, Let Me In’s Chloe Grace Moretz, Modern Family’s Rico Rodriguez, The Last Airbender’s Noah Ringer, and True Grit’s Hailee Steinfeld — to talk shop. Chloe Grace Moretz, at just 13, is enjoying a moment few actors will ever realize. After her break-out role as the exquisitely foul-mouthed Hit Girl in Kick-Ass, and her forlorn turn playing a vampire in Let Me In, she’s now filming Hugo Cabret in London with Martin Scorsese. Next up for this busy home-schooled 8th grader? Karyn Kusama’s The Rut, Derick Martini’s Hick, David O. Russell’s Old St. Louis with Vince Vaughn, and — good grief, this girl gets killer roles — Emily the Strange. READ FULL STORYAs we
Read our recap.) Shortly after the episode aired on the East Coast (which Trevino watched while flipping back and forth from the World Series), he phoned EW to talk about what’s next for young Mr. Lockwood, which scene he’s yet to shoot that’s making him nervous, and why episode 210 is already one of his favorites.Even before season 2 began, producers of The Vampire Diaries were talking about Michael Trevino’s beefed up role as a werewolf. So SPOILER-THAT-ISN’T-ACTUALLY-A-SPOILER: Last night, in episode 7, Tyler Lockwood finally (accidentally) killed someone and activated the family curse. (
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Watching this episode, I was like, finally! We’ve known it was coming for so long, and now it’s on. Did you have a bit of that reaction to?
MICHAEL TREVINO: Yeah. It’s official now. It’s just a hint of it. It’s at the point where the next few episodes are going to be about preparing for the next full moon that comes. You’re gonna see Tyler do more research, because now he realizes he’s not going to be able to stop himself — it’s just inevitable.
Have you shot that full transformation yet? Are we going to see you shirtless and chained like Mason was?
We have not shot that. I think we might shoot that next week. It’s gotta be soon. I’m not sure how exactly it’s gonna happen, to be honest with you. I would think that he’s gonna go down to those old ruins were Mason was and probably do what he was doing and just lock himself up. And hopefully he doesn’t hurt anybody. He won’t be able to control himself, especially the first time.
Are you doing anything special to prepare for that? Are you bulking up even more?
I’m trying to, yeah. [Laughs] As far as hitting the weights and dieting, it’s hard to do. So just a little bit, nothing extreme. READ FULL STORY
In an oddly animated interview with MTV News, Kristen Stewart talked about the final installment of the Twilight series with something approaching enthusiasm. Having just returned from Breaking Dawn read-throughs in Baton Rouge with Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, Stewart reported that “it’s done, it’s locked… basically we know exactly how the book is going to find itself, and now we know all the lines and know what scenes have been pulled.” No word yet on whether the birthing scene of baby vampire chewing her cutesie-schmoopsie way out of Bella’s womb has been tweaked or cut.
