‘The Vampire Diaries’: Damon & Stefan Work On Rayna’s Hit List (Exclusive)
In this exclusive sneak peek at Friday’s episode of “The Vampire Diaries,” Salvatore brothers Damon and Stefan discuss taking out all the vamps on Rayna’s hit list. How will Stefan react when he finds out Damon sent Matt to help his brother? “TVD” airs Friday at 8/7c on the CW.
Mothers and Daughters is in theaters on May 6 … check out the trailer. Paul has a very brief appearance but I think the film looks so good!
Mothers and Daughters features interwoven stories about what it means to be a mom, which are tied together via single gal Rigby Gray, a rock photographer who’s riding a career high when an unlikely and unexpected pregnancy forces her to turn her lens inward. As Rigby slowly comes to terms with what it might mean to change her life forever, she discovers with fresh eyes her own relationship with her estranged mother. Through a series of photographs documenting motherhood in all its varieties, she considers what it means to be maternal at all. – See more at: http://luke-mitchell.net/#sthash.1j71lmRD.dpuf

Next Friday on the Vampire Diaries, Somebody I Used to Know.
Enzo’s efforts to protect Bonnie put her life in jeopardy and it’s learned that Rayna may hold the key to Bonnie’s survival. Meanwhile, Stefan travels to Dallas where he and Alaric are forced to confront the fallout from Stefan’s absence in Caroline’s life. Finally, Enzo learns the Armory’s true motives behind its search for Bonnie.
Plus, does he think Stefan could ever leave Damon behind?
Stefan Salvatore has been tortured, he’s been killed, and he’s even been forced to spend an entire summer drowning over and over again. But in this week’s Vampire Diaries, he’s going to experience something new: While he’s dealing with his own personal hell, someone new is going to take over his body. It might sound complicated, but for Paul Wesley, it was an opportunity.
“It’s actually one of my favorite episodes of the season,” Wesley tells EW. “As an actor I get to play two different roles which was really fun. It’s quite different from anything we’ve seen before.”
As for Wesley’s new character, he says the guy is “not from our time.” Furthermore, Wesley says, “He is an absolute and utter sociopath. He doesn’t think like a normal human being. He is mentally deranged.”
He’s so deranged that Wesley says he finds Damon to be humorous. “He kind of thinks Damon’s a joke. He thinks he’s a very funny … he has one line where he goes, ‘You’re a funny guy. We should get a drink sometime. You amuse me.’ ”
“The guy’s also much older,” Wesley continues, “He’s much more manipulative and sociopathic than Damon ever could imagine himself to be.”
But speaking to what’s really going on with Stefan — other than the obvious battle for his body – Wesley says this episode really focuses on the relationship between the Salvatore brothers. “Damon had a Civil War episode, that was kind of his episode, and this is kind of Stefan’s episode to get into his psyche,” he says. “But a big part of it is about the brothers. It’s really confronting everything that’s been going on for the last 7 seasons.”
So could Wesley ever see Stefan leaving Damon behind? “Yeah, definitely,” he says, adding, “[But] in the end, they’re brothers and they’re linked by a family bond. They can say bye for a given amount of time, but I do think they’re like magnets and they go back to one another. They’re polar opposites but they still need each other in many different ways.”
And this experience is going to force the brothers to face that push and pull. “The big burning question is: Will the brothers face their demons in terms of the betrayal? Are they going to reconcile? Is there going to be a sense of the brothers forgiving one another, or Stefan forgiving Damon?”
The Vampire Diaries airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
In exciting news, The CW has renewed The Vampire Diaries for Season 8!
Here is the news from Variety.com!
In an unprecedented move for a broadcast network, the CW announced Friday that it has given early renewals to every current series on its schedule.
Ratings may not be all that great for some of the shows, but CW President Mark Pedowitz showed extreme confidence in his slate, ordering pickups for the 10 series comprising its current schedule as well as “Reign,” which resumes its third season next month. Given that CW has numerous pilots in contention to join the lineup next season, it’s clear that the network’s strategy will be to spread out these renewed series across fall, midseason and summer.
Among the pickups are rookie series “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” and DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” and veterans “Supernatural” and “The Vampire Diaries.” “Supernatural,” which began on The WB in 2005, will be back for its 12th season, which will include the drama’s 250th episode.

“The CW has become home to some of the most critically acclaimed shows on broadcast television, with a wide array of fantastic scripted series across the week, ranging from musical comedy, to superhero action, to gritty sci-fi dramas,” said Pedowitz. “As we continue to further our strategy of more year-round original programming, picking up these 11 series for the 2016-17 season puts us in a great position of having proven, high-quality shows to launch in the fall as well as midseason and summer of 2017.”
The series being ordered for the 2016-17 season are: “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” (season 2), “Jane the Virgin” (season 3), “The Flash” (season 3), “iZombie” (season 3), “Arrow” (season 5), “Supernatural” (season 12), “DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” (season 2), “The 100” (season 4), “The Vampire Diaries” (season 8), “The Originals” (season 4) and “Reign” (season 4).
