Review Caroline Preece Feb 17, 2013
A major death occurs in this week's episode of The Vampire Diaries, but will it stick?
This review contains spoilers.
4.14 Down the Rabbit Hole
This week’s The Vampire Diaries might have changed everything in its last ten minutes, but we’re still far too concerned with this damn cure, along with the tedium of various love triangles and the clumsy dismissal of secondary characters. If the big death in this episode ends up sticking, it will be remembered as one of the more important ones but, if it doesn’t then we’ll all have to permanently lower our expectations from this point onwards.
The fact that we don’t know what we’ll be seeing next week might be great for tension and building fan theories, but it also demonstrates how much The Vampire Diaries has changed over the last couple of years. Judging »
We’ve been telling you about The Originals, a “back door spinoff” that gets a tryout as the April 25 episode of The Vampire Diaries. It will be set in New Orleans, and will follow original vampires and brothers Klaus and Elijah and their goings-on there. This week’s news is that they will be joined by their sister Rebekah, played by Claire Holt. The three surviving Originals, together again. I know, right? What about Stefan, Rebekah?
Shooting for the special episode begins in New Orleans March 11, but if it’s picked up to series it will shoot primarily in Atlanta (where The Vampire Diaries shoots) to allow for crossovers (yay!), according to EW. Joseph Morgan (Klaus) is clearly looking forward to what’s to come:
“I’m terrified I’m gonna say something I’m not supposed to,” he admits, “but there’s some huge, huge transitions and some reveals »

4.13 Into The Wild
It’s another week of heartfelt conversations and twisty turny plots on The Vampire Diaries, as the hunt for the cure heats up and more information on Shane’s master-plan is revealed to the gang. Personally, I’m not entirely sure we needed any more information, since the explanations offered to us make even less sense than the ones we had assumed before. Isn’t it enough to see our favourite characters scramble about and bicker over a cure that may or may not exist? Do we really need a mad professor, his witchy pawn, and an immortal being thrown into the overflowing mix?
I got excited last week when, at the end of episode twelve, Jeremy’s map was already complete and Elena, »
Hot up-and-coming actress Alice has stood up to defend Kristen from her haters, and she even complemented Kristen’s acting. Way cool!
Alice Englert and Kristen Stewart have a lot in common, as they are both young, Hollywood actresses who star in huge film franchises about paranormal love, and so it is no surprise that they have been compared to each other! Alice, 18, is the hot new star of Beautiful Creatures, which tells the love story of Lena, who moves to a small town where she meets the mysterious Ethan. Sound familiar? In a new interview, Alice talks about the comparisons to Twilight, and she talks about how “great” an actress Kristen is. Alice also admits that she feels bad for Kristen, 22, because of all the people “scrutinizing” her. Read on for all the details.

This week, on The Vampire Diaries: Shane goes ghost hunting, Rebekah pitches herself as hero, and Tyler and Caroline call Klaus’s bluff
Last week’s installment, “A View to a Kill”, was a heartening episode that made strides towards putting The Vampire Diaries back on the path to being the compelling, entertaining show it is capable of being. This week’s episode may not continue that trend, but it at least doesn’t devolve the show back into the repetitive, predictable mess of earlier this season.
“Into the Wild” wisely opens with our heroes (and Shane) already solidly on their way to finding Silas. How they expect to get from Mystic Falls, Virginia to Nova Scotia and back in three days to administer »

What did our Round Table panel of Matt Richenthal, Miranda Wicker, Steve Marsi, Dan Forcella and Leigh Raines think of the island-based installment? Find out below and then chime in with your thoughts...
What was your favorite scene or quote from the episode?
Matt: There was some solid dissing and even better dismissing this week. Klaus isn't worth the calories it takes Caroline to slam him? Elena agrees that Rebekah is "easy?" Forget fangs. The claws were out last night.
Miranda: This is hard since this episode was a bit of a letdown compared to last week. I'll go with Damon torturing Shane because I haven't trusted Shane from the moment we first met him and Damon hasn't either. »

The Vampire Diaries Episode 413
Written By: Caroline Dries
Directed By: Michael Allowitz
Original Airdate: 7 February 2013
In This Episode...
Our expedition, consisting of Stefan, Rebekah, Elena, Damon, Jeremy, Bonnie, and Shane, lands off the coast of Nova Scotia, a heavily wooded and desolate region. They begin trekking inland. Shane warns of booby traps. Elena and Rebekah are at each other’s throats. Bonnie photographs every inch of Jeremy’s tattoos. As night falls, someone shoots arrows at Jeremy, and he is tackled. His attacker is attacked and killed; his savior disappears. Shane decides it is safer if they set up camp for the night and do so in a clearing with an adjacent barn-like structure.
Bonnie is concerned because she wasn’t able to find a spell on Jeremy’s tattoo. Shane assures her it is all in her expression. He also uses this opportunity to point out »

The Vampire Diaries aired one of the more boring episodes in show history this week.
How will the series bounce back next Thursday? Via "Down the Rabbit Hole," an installment that will focus on the new hunter encountered by Damon to close out "Into the Wild."
What is his agenda? Where does he fit into Shane's grand (read: evil) plan? And just what might that third massacre entail? All good questions, all with exciting answers we hope.

Things got pretty wild, excuse the pun, on The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 13 ("Into the Wild"). Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) and his new fully-developed hunter's mark joins Damon (Ian Somerhalder), Elena (Nina Dobrev), Stefan (Paul Wesley), Bonnie (Kat Graham) and Rebekah (Claire Holt) in following Professor Shane (David Alpay) to a remote location where he says they'll find the cure. Meanwhile, Tyler (Michael Trevino) and Klaus (Joseph Morgan) come to blows over the Original's indiscretions and Caroline (Candice Accola) is thrown smack dab into the middle of their war.

Sorry, Damon Salvatore. You may have a handsome rear end, but you are one giant liar.
To conclude last week's strong Vampire Diaries episode, you uttered these inspiring words: Here we go. But the show didn't go very far at all on "Into the Wild," burying itself in far too much drivel from Atticus - yes, Atticus! - Shane and dragging the hour down with an over-reliance on exposition.
Yes, we learned a great deal.
About why Shane manipulated the Pastor to commit group suicide. About what his end game is for The Cure. About Bonnie's relationship to a witch with a really complicated name. But if Shane's history classes are anything like the way this information was doled out - talking, talking and then even more talking - I can't imagine why anyone would sign up.
This was really one of the more boring episodes of The Vampire Diaries in recent memory, »

This season of The Vampire Diaries has been the best yet. Lots of unexpected twists, turns, and deaths, not too much weepy pining, and no sign of it slowing in the least. Keep your ears open for references to New Orleans; remember, the spinoff series The Originals will be set there, and they’ve already started dropping in a few bon mots.
We can expect that the next few episodes will be especially epic, since February is “sweeps” period, when all the networks’ Nielsen ratings are closely scrutinized, and therefore when all the networks want their strongest shows and episodes to be showcased. As they have done in past sweeps periods, The Vampire Diaries has released a special poster:
Okay, I admit it, I am even more intrigued.

There’s an old saying that goes, give him enough rope and he’ll hang himself. On its own it may sound a little dry or stale, but couple it with an image of one major bad boy hottie with a cult following, and a bunch of pulses are about to go racing. Is that Damon bound and bleeding? Yes it is! Get a load of the latest Vampire Diaries promo art featuring Ian Somerhalder.
Okay, the previous photos we examined were polished, pretty, and raised a lot of questions, but I suspect this latest one will agitate Diaries fans to the point of exasperation. Would Damon really sacrifice himself for Elena? That’s the million dollar question. Those sneaky CW execs in charge of promo art knew we would notice Damon was missing from the previous images. Well, you wanted him? You got him!
It is season 4 of Dairies »

After scoring his first Academy Award nomination with the Mark Zuckerberg biopic The Social Network, Jesse Eisenberg took a break from drama with comedies like 30 Minutes or Less, Free Samples and To Rome With Love. But with his next funny feature Now You See Me poised to hit theaters this summer, Eisenberg is looking to dig back into drama with the atomic bomb-centered Midnight Sun. Reporting from the European Film Market, Screen Daily reveals Eisenberg will front the film alongside Diane Kruger (Inglorious Basterds) and Emile Hirsch (Into the Wild). Written and directed by actor turned filmmaker Chris Eigeman, its story is set in 1943 America. Fresh from graduate school, two young people (presumably Eisenberg and Hirsch) are recruited by the government for a top-secret project that will take them away from the jazz-soaked atmosphere of New York, and into the deserts of New Mexico. Kruger is expected to play one »
