The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 14 Review: It's Been a Hell of a Ride

25 February 2017 6:44 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Katherine Pierce is back, you guys!

That was confirmed on The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 14 in what turned out to be a crazy thrill ride that set the wheels in motion for what is sure to be a killer conclusion to this CW hit. 

Let's talk about Kai first. He continued to be a delight. I laughed out loud at him singing karaoke. It was so ironic that he would be singing about knocking on heaven's door when that was exactly where he wanted to go. 

If The Vampire Diaries Season 6 taught us anything, we should never trust Kai. It was a typical Kai move to make a deal with the devil to get what he wanted. He's been nothing but an opportunist since he first appeared. 

His first death was not great, but Bonnie trapping him in a prison world was just gold.

The twins are going to prove integral to taking down Katherine. »

The final season of The Vampire Diaries has been full of fun throwbacks, and it seems like the finale will be just as nostalgic.

23 February 2017 2:59 PM, PST | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

It seems Paul Wesley can get as emotional as his alter ego. The Vampire Diaries star confessed he teared up just reading the script for The CW series finale. In fact, he snapped a selfie of his reaction and sent it to creators Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec, according to Entertainment Weekly. The eighth and finale season also stars Ian Somerhalder, Kat Graham, Candice King, Zach Roerig, Matthew Davis, and Michael MalarkeyAlthough he's reportedly not too sentimental over the long-running supernatural drama series, reportedly, Wesley was also rather moved, while shooting The Vampire Diaries series finale, for The CW. He referenced his last scene with Nina Dobrev, who starred as Elena Gilbert for the first six seasons, then left. She returned to film the show's final chapter.Read More… »

When Was the Last Time We Saw Elena Gilbert on The Vampire Diaries?

22 February 2017 11:50 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Vampire Diaries is bringing back a lot of familiar faces for its series finale, but we're most excited about the return of Elena Gilbert. Since Nina Dobrev famously left the show at the end of season six, A Lot has changed. Over the past two seasons, the group has battled heretics, vampire huntresses, crazy sirens, and now, they've even come face to face with the devil himself. While Elena will certainly have a rude awakening (pun intended) when she comes out of her sleeping curse, we can't help but think about her last appearance on the show. As you gear up for the finale, refresh your memory here. The last time we saw Elena was in the season six finale, well, technically - but we'll get to that in a minute. After taking the cure and becoming human again, Elena attends Alaric and Jo's wedding as a bridesmaid. Much »

The Vampire Diaries Pictures: Who's Returning?!?

22 February 2017 6:42 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The Vampire Diaries is saving a lot of crazy returns for the end of the series. 

Just released pictures for The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 15 confirm that Melinda Clarke will be staging a comeback as Matt's horrible mother, Kelly Donovan. 

Kelly was last seen on The Vampire Diaries Season 1 when it became apparent she had a thing for younger guys, prompting Matt to tell her to leave Mystic Falls and never look back. 

There have been rumblings for quite some time that the character would be returning before the series concludes, but this is the first official confirmation of it. 

Considering the way she's holding a microphone in the pictures, it sure seems like she's trying to take on a leadership role. 

The episode will center on the gang throwing a fake wedding to lure Cade out of the darkness to take him out of the equation for good.

Sweet/Vicious: proof of how vital female voices are to TV

15 February 2017 2:33 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Caroline Preece Feb 17, 2017

As the fate of MTV's Sweet/Vicious hangs in the balance, here's why TV in 2017 needs many more female voices calling the shots...

If you haven’t heard about Sweet/Vicious, the new comedy/superhero series airing on MTV in the Us, then you’re seriously missing out.

See related  The unmade films of Kevin Smith Why Mallrats 2 can’t get made Kevin Smith interview: Yoga Hosers, Arrow, Mallrats Clerks III dead, new Jay & Silent Bob movie coming instead

Dishearteningly, despite a growing cult following based on word of mouth, there’s been a distinct lack of noise around the show since it premiered. As of writing this it's ‘on the bubble’ and facing possible cancellation as MTV re-evaluates its scripted drama efforts, and there’s no word of a UK air date. All of this has the potential to limit the number of eyeballs that fall upon the show, »

The Vampire Diaries Round Table: Kai Is Back!

14 February 2017 11:30 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Kai is back in Mystic Falls!

That much was confirmed on The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 12 in an episode that helped change things up for the series. 

Below, TV Fanatics Mandy Treccia, Justin Carreiro and Paul Dailly discuss Matt's flashbacks, Kai's return and whether Damon was right to put Stefan's life above his friends...

What did you think of the flashbacks?

Mandy: I was bored. I'm not a fan of Matt in general. But I didn't need to see the sirens again. A lot of the information we already knew. 

Justin: I didn't mind the flashbacks. We don't get many moments of Matt's family history, so it was alright to share some screen time. However, I wish the reveal was more exciting.

Paul: They were okay. It was a bit surreal seeing Zach Roerig in them because he’s been the token human for so long. It was about time he got a meaningful storyline. »
