Those watching the 2013 Comic Con presentation for The Vampire Diaries got a bit of a taste of what’s to come in the show’s upcoming season. The show returns to The CW for its fifth season on October 10th and those at the event’s press room got a glimpse of what’s going down in Mystic Falls.
The cast and crew of “The Vampire Diaries” gave shrieking Comic-Con fans a taste of what’s to come in the fifth season during the CW supernatural series’ presentation Saturday at the pop-culture convention. In footage shown before the panel, mind-bending baddie Silas addressed a group of Mystic Falls townsfolk while appearing as Paul Wesley’s Stefan. He not-so-discreetly informed the crowd that he wants to control them.
“Vampire Diaries” executive producers Julie Plec and Caroline Dries said the new season will also deal with the ramifications of Nina Dobrev’s Elena choosing romance with Ian Somerhalder’s Damon over Stefan, as well as Katherine, the ancient vampire character played by Dobrev, involuntarily becoming human. “It is Mystic Falls and essentially you can’t be that happy for that long, so there’s always got to be that drama,” said Somerhalder. The new season will also see some characters going off to college. “Why are we pursuing higher education?” joked Wesley. “We’re all murderers.”
Are you excited for the return of The Vampire Diaries?
Fans of Charlaine Harris’ novels, of which True Blood is based, will relish the fact that the shower scene is happening!
If you’ve read book four, Dead To The World, then you already know that a saucy shower scene was going to happen between Sookie Stackhouse and Eric Northman. Since Alan Ball has really only used the books as a baseline for the show’s plots, we were unsure whether or not the racy scene would make it into the show. Fear not, Truebies, it’s going to happen!
Executive Producer Alan Ball has confirmed the news at this year’s Comic Con. He said, “There will be a moment in the show where Sookie and Eric are together in the shower. But it may not exactly be what happens in the books — it may be weirder and dirtier.”
Weirder and dirtier? I can only imagine! We can’t wait to see what they’ve got in store for us!
Also in the pipeline for season five is how Eric created Pam! And with regard to season four, I’m still left wondering what’s going to happen between Jason and Jessica? He’s had a taste of her blood, so they now have a bond of sorts. But he’s turning into a werepanther. Interesting.
Are you excited to see how it all plays out on the show?
Megan Fox appeared on the red carpet for the 12th Annual Teen Choice Awards with a mysterious white substance caked in her nose.
It was said that she has been going to the gym to cover up her recent weight loss and that while attending Comic Con for Jonah Hex, she appeared fidgety and was constantly licking her lips.
Weird. Think it was just nerves or was it something more?
