In a race against the clock, Stefan (Paul Wesley) pledges to do everything he can to save the twins, while tensions between Alaric (Matt Davis) and Caroline boil over, leading them to face some harsh realities about the future of their family.

Here’s the preview of The Vampire Diaries’ upcoming episode “Coming Home Was a Mistake” airing November 18th on The CW;

WHEN TRAGEDY STRIKES TOO CLOSE TO HOME — Spiraling down a dangerous path of self-destruction, Damon’s (Ian Somerhalder) latest actions prove he may be beyond the point of return. Unwilling to give up on his brother, Stefan (Paul Wesley) is forced to make a gut-wrenching decision that threatens to change their relationship forever. Elsewhere, Bonnie (Kat Graham) gets advice from Caroline (Candice King) on how to break through to Enzo (Michael Malarkey), while Matt (Zach Roerig) attempts to decipher a mysterious box of messages that he’s received. Finally, after tragedy strikes close to home, Stefan and the others are forced to remember what matters most to them. Matt Davis also stars.

Nathalie Kelley made sure she brushed up on her Greek mythology before auditioning for the role of Sybil, the mind-controlling siren and Big Bad for The Vampire Diaries’ final season.

“I was really kind of a nerd growing up,” she tells EW. “I read a lot of Greek mythology as a child, so I really just brushed up on the stories.”

As Kelley sees it, Sybil “gets what she wants” — and her twisted mind will take her to new levels. “I think you’ll be surprised at her capacity for evil as the season develops,” says the actress.

Sybil already has Damon and Enzo under her control, coercing them both to turn off their humanity, and the siren isn’t done terrorizing Damon and Enzo’s loved ones in Mystic Falls. “As the episodes come up, you see what she chooses to do with her powers, which gets pretty crazy,” Kelley teases.

Viewers learned in the trailer for Friday’s (tonight) upcoming episode “An Eternity of Misery” that Sybil has a sister, but Kelley can’t say too much about her mysterious sibling. “I don’t want to give it away,” she says. “She’s an integral part of the story and Sybil’s backstory.”

In Friday’s episode, viewers will get a peek into Sybil’s origin story, and Kelley says a “more vulnerable, human side of her” will be on display. “She’s motivated sadly, by these tragic circumstances,” she says.

Apparently, Sybil has abandonment issues after facing a long-term exile. “When people are motivated by that,” Kelley warns, “they are capable of some pretty dark things.”

She also explains why Sybil is so determined to kill Bonnie. Last week, Sybil could not get over the fact that both Damon and Enzo cared for Bonnie so deeply. Kelley says it’s “what triggers her about Damon’s love for Elena and everyone’s love for Bonnie. She can’t fathom that love because she’s never had it.”

But don’t mistake Sybil’s affection for Damon for something deeper. “Damon can serve her,” Kelley says. Indeed, the siren is not interested in a romantic relationship. Instead, Sybil prefers “to be worshipped,” Kelley says. “She wants a loyal servant, and as long as Damon is a loyal servant to her, she appreciates him and knows his value.”

The Vampire Diaries airs Friday at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.


Here’s the preview of The Vampire Diaries’ 8×04: “An Eternity of Misery” airing November 11th on The CW;

A SUPERNATURAL ORIGIN STORY — Tasked with finding a mysterious artifact, Damon’s (Ian Somerhalder) latest mission takes him to Texas where a violent run-in with Peter Maxwell (guest star Joel Gretsch) leads to a surprising revelation. Meanwhile, after gaining the upper hand in their fight to save Damon and Enzo (Michael Malarkey), Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Alaric (Matt Davis) team up and uncover the origins of the mysterious force they’re up against. Finally, Matt (Zach Roerig) returns to the fray after his past and present collide in an unexpected way. Candice King also stars.

Nina Dobrev‘s next small-screen role will find her involved in a very different sort of triangle.

The Vampire Diaries star — whose character remains sound asleep in a supernatural coma — will guest-star in Season 7 of Comedy Central’s Workaholics, TVLine has confirmed, though no further details about her role are available.
Dobrev tweeted about being on set Wednesday:

As far as Dobrev’s future on TVD is concerned, CW president Mark Pedowitz in August told reporters that “discussions” have begun to have her return for the final season. “We’d love to have Nina back,” he added. “She was great for The CW. She was integral for The Vampire Diaries.”

On the big screen, you can catch Dobrev in Paramount’s xXx: Return of Xander Cage, opening in January, as well as Sony’s Flatliners, out in August.

BONNIE’S CHOICE — As Enzo (Michael Malarkey) continues to fight the control over him, Bonnie (Kat Graham) finds herself at the center of a deadly game and forced to make a heart wrenching decision involving two of the most important people in her life. At the Armory, Alaric (Matt Davis) researches a mysterious artifact that he hopes will help in their fight to get Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Enzo back. Finally, Damon’s downward spiral leads him to Tyler Lockwood (guest star Michael Trevino) who attempts to talk some sense into him before it’s too late. Paul Wesley and Candice King also star.

The Vampire Diaries’ 8×03: “You Decided I Was Worth Saving” airs November 4th on The CW!

“The Vampire Diaries” is ending after eight seasons on The CW, and star Michael Malarkey promises it will revisit the vampire drama’s dark roots.

“What I love about this season is that it has thrown back a little to the original ‘Vampire Diaries,’ you know, that kind of edge and danger to it,” Malarkey (Enzo) told TheWrap’s Stuart Brazell. “For a while there, in the middle of the show, there was this kind of ‘oh, they died, but they’ll come back.’ We lost, kind of, that danger element.

“This season, we’re bringing that back in, and people are dying. There are some big deaths that are going to happen, and they’ll be final.”

The actor admits excitement was mixed with sadness and nostalgia when it came to filming the final episodes of the Julie Plec drama, which stars Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder.

“It’s bittersweet,” Malarkey said. “But we’re all sort of itching to go out and do other work. Some of the other guys who have been on the show for the entire run of eight seasons — whereas I started in Season 5 — I can only imagine doing one show for that long and how that must feel. But I think everyone’s savoring this last season, the moments and being together and also looking forward to the pastures coming up.”

Malarkey also gives fans plenty of reason to tune in to see how it all wraps up.

“It’s the end of an era,” he said. “It’s a big sendoff, a huge thank you to all the fans who’ve stuck with us for the past eight seasons. We’re bringing back some familiar faces, some epic deaths. There’s a lot of pageantry to it. We’re going to revisit some iconic moments from seasons past, and it’s going to be a pretty wild ride.”

“The Vampire Diaries” airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
