Paul Wesley shadowed a carousel of directors for a year in order to prepare for one of his scariest roles yet — directing an episode of The Vampire Diaries! Apparently, he’s always wanted to direct, and told the executive producers about that early on the series’ run, but they told him that he had to go through the process before he was ready.

100 episodes: What are your favorite Vampire Diaries moments?

Featured By

These days, we don’t treat The Vampire Diaries as nicely as we possibly could. But there was a time when The Vampire Diaries was on my list of favorite television shows. I think it’s also safe to say that there was also a moment in time when The Vampire Diaries was one of the best shows on television, completely un-ironically.

Can you believe we’ve gone through 100 of these? I started reviewing The Vampire Diaries during the tail end of season two. Ah, season two. Good times. That was back when I, and everyone else, was trying to convince people that The Vampire Diaries is a show that is worth watching unironically.

You guys, whatever.

Is that an appropriate reaction? I hope it is, because that’s sort of what The Vampire Diaries feels like sometimes, right? Like, a lot of stuff happens, but when it’s over you’re just like, “OK.” Right? Right? This wasn’t a particularly awful episode of The Vampire Diaries, but it was sort of like, “Sure.

Let us all bask in the glory that was the best episode of The Vampire Diaries in a very long while! Am I delusional or was that just some very good stuff? I’m beyond the mythology, though sometimes with how wonky it is, it can be plain fun in its own right.

I must really be a masochist. OK, here’s a stream of consciousness (I apologize in advance):

Well, let’s be honest: that wasn’t a bad episode of The Vampire Diaries. But, then again, as I’ve been reiterating for this entire season, this season is just a reiteration of the show. Even Caroline is tired of having the same talk with Tyler about him leaving and having to do things elsewhere.

Now that we’ve had time to mourn the loss of one Christian Grey and equal time to embrace a new one we can all sit back, relax, and enjoy the view. The coveted role in the Fifty Shades of Grey book-to-movie adaptation by E.L. James now rests in the hands of Sheriff Graham Humbert (played by Jamie Dornan) of the ABC series Once Upon A Time.

The Vampire Diaries ‘For Whom the Bell Tolls’ review: Ghost whisperer

When Stefan lost his memory last week, I was split pretty evenly about it. On one hand, you have what could be a trite plot twist. On the other, it could be a lot of fun having Stefan rediscover this weird world. I mean, these are people who are vampires and where a friend is dead but is making sure no one knows.

The Vampire Diaries ‘Original Sin’ review: Conflict that makes things interesting

There were plenty of moments during tonight’s Vampire Diaries where it seemed like the writers were speaking directly to the audience. One of them, of course, was Quetsiyah telling Damon that he’s basically used to dramatize another romance. We know that Damon and Elena love to prove to themselves that they are beyond fate and circumstance, but time and time again, the actual series provides to us that Elena and Stefan are somehow epic.

The Vampire Diaries ‘True Lies’ review: Always look back

The Vampire Diaries is really good at making episodes where seemingly not much happens feel like there’s a lot that happens. I mean, they’ve been doing them for plenty of seasons now, so they’ve certainly gotten much more efficient at them. Once the credits roll at the end of the episode, you realize they’ve basically just been delaying the events until the next plot twist.
