Elena: Stefan we’re late for school
Stefan: Let’s be later.
Elena: Stefan, it’s school. Remember that thing we keep forgetting about?
11. Is that a threat?
Katherine (to Elena and Co.): Fine. I’ll just go to the Grill and have some lunch. Maybe Aunt Jenna’s free for a bite.
10. It’s called role reversal
Matt (to Caroline): I don’t get it. Since when am I the one who can express himself and you’re the one who’s at a loss for words?
9. Ever so clever
Damon (to Stefan): What did Papa Witch and Baby witch have to say?
8. No, that doesn’t make me feel better
Katherine (to Damon): If it’s any consolation. I’m glad that you’re not dead.
7. Can’t we all get along?
Doc Martin (to Luka): Those people, they’re our enemies.
6. Sarcastic much?
Caroline: I am a winner when it comes to successful relationships.
Jenna: You too?
Caroline: You have no idea.
5. So that’s what it’s called
Damon (to Stefan): It’s some kind of crazy-ass psychic witch attack. Get over there and do something about it.
4. That’s one way to look at it
Jenna (to Alaric): Whatever it is you’re keeping from me, whatever it is you think I can’t handle, you’re right. Because last year I was a grad student who smoked a lot of pot and couldn’t keep a goldfish alive and now I’m a parent. So I think I can handle anything ‘Ric.
3. Say what?
Caroline: Just ‘cause I talk a lot doesn’t mean I know what I’m talking about.
2. Thanks will suffice
Katherine (to Elena): I’m guessing you’re going to want this back. [Holds out E’s Vervain necklace] But your pretty little outfit is going to need a good dry cleaning.
1. On to the next one
Jenna: Not tonight, right? Tonight I trade you for Señor Tequila.
Alaric: Señor Tequila’s not treating your very well.
Jenna: Well then the two of you have a lot in common.

Elijah: Because I feel that we’ve grown so close, Damon, I’ll tell you “Yes.”
Jeremy: I didn’t realize my sister had approval over my whole life.
Damon: But, of course, she hates him. So there’s absolutely no need to keep him on the endangered species list.

Second, if you’ve asked me a question about the future books or the endgame of The Vampire Diaries and I’ve been vague about what’s in store, I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize. I really wasn’t looking forward to the day when I would have to talk about this.
Third, and most importantly, I want to ask anyone who was thinking of it, not to boycott Harper’s or anyone. It just doesn’t make sense. Although I wanted and still want more than anything to be able to continue The Vampire Diaries series myself, there’s no point in not trying the new books. (And remember, for fans of Bonnie and Damon, and strict Stefan and Elena fans, the immediate dynamics may be more to your liking.) Besides which, Midnight, which is all mine, is coming out in March, and I believe there may be some of my writing in Phantom.
Thanks again to all the fans who have shown loving and loyal kindness to me"
so not only has she been fired but it seems Harpers already have their end stories set with a damon/bonnie and stefan/elena end points now i know there will be alot of unhappy fans if this is the case but i guess only time will tell what will happen. Let us know : Are you going to boycott the books after Midnight (which is to be Lj smiths last one) ?
Thanks to Vampire Diaries online for the heads up

IS: Andie’s awesome. She’s hot, quick, quirky, and witty. Even under compulsion she doesn’t give Damon sh–. What she does is she fires back at him as quickly as he fires off to her, and what’s cute about it is that he has this funny little answer yet he ties her scarf around her neck so no one can see. It’s just awesome. I love the dynamic that they created with her and they’re sort of this little team. She’s helping him execute his plans and they’re really just an unlikely team.
JJ: And who’s playing her?
IS: Her name is Dawn Olivieri. She’s a good friend of mine and I’ve known her for years and I was stoked when I heard that she was coming [to Vampire Diaries]. I don’t know how long we can keep her because she’s just got cast opposite Don Cheadle [in House of Lies] so I don’t think we get to keep her, but it’s bad for Damon and great for her.
JJ: Executive producer Julie Plec teased, “We have this impending ritual, the sacrifice that will break the curse of the sun and the moon — that’s where we’ll end our season”. Can you talk or hint a little bit about that?
IS: It’s funny because we get our scripts just a couple of days before. I know that there’s going to be a pretty sizable showdown between the werewolves and vampires and I can’t imagine Klaus not showing up after all this talk. So I don’t know, I can only imagine the way I see things going so there will be a big showdown, its a problem. Damon forged these relationships, found himself caring in places and times when its very intermediate, but I think protecting Elena and his home from one entity that’s more powerful or could possibly kill him is enough. Protecting her too is very difficult and it’s wearing on him and the couple is starting feel emotional and start not being able to understand how to grapple with all this emotion, it’s really tough.
JJ: Besides reading the scripts, is there a certain thing you always do to get into character?
IS: Yes. I think being able to pool from your life’s present, past, and future and knead the thread of life into that text is always a good idea. But there’s a woman I work with, and she’s probably one of the most renowned acting coaches walking on the face of the planet. She trains a lot of actors that we’ve grown to respect and I worked really closely with her day in and day out. There is a significant amount of preparation that goes into this.
JJ: Let’s talk about your IS Foundation. Has environmental protection always been a passion? Was there a specific experience that influenced your decision to launch it?
IS: Environmental protection was always a big thing for me. I grew up on the marshes of Louisiana; literally my front yard was thousands of acres of marsh. It was all in my dream to be part of an organization that protected the environment, but the Gulf oil spill was ultimately what made me drop the hammer immediately and say that “this is enough”. Watching my entire home be destroyed because of the lack of regulatory commissions for fossil fuels and the amount of back scratching that goes into the petroleum industry - or even any large industry. It changed my life and the lives of a lot people … This also involves cruelty and overpopulation issues with animals, so this is one of the most phenomenally inspiring thing I’ve ever been in involved in. The amount of support for this foundation goes above and beyond. Obviously it’s invariably difficult to raise money in a time of economic depression which we’re about to get into, but it’s so inspiring. Put it this way: a 6-year-old girl sent me an e-mail saying she gave our foundation her tooth fairy money to help save the planet and it blew my mind. She asked what she can do to help and just thought that this girl is going to be the president one day.
JJ: Any plans to travel with the foundation? There was a report saying you were heading to Africa and South America?
IS: Yeah, I’m not going to get to do Africa this year, but I am going to be in Central and South America. We’ll be going with The Global Alliance for Conservation, which is one of the largest environmental protection organizations in the world. Don Cheadle and I have signed on to be the two spokesperson for this … I’m going to Central and South America to look at the areas hit hard by deforestation and to figure out how to reforest them sustainably, efficiently, and economically to find ways to put people to work. I actually can’t sleep at night sometimes and I would go on my own foundation’s website and find more factors. So every tree we save, we have been able to put the actual cost benefit analysis of, so it recycles an X amount of dollars worth of air and water. Next Year we’ll be in Africa.
JJ: That’s awesome. Besides your busy schedule with the foundation, do you have any other upcoming projects?
IS: We’ve been looking very diligently, we’re looking for anything that fits into our time frame so hopefully the next time I talk to you I’ll have something interesting for you.
JJ: Got to ask, you were included in the most recent issue of People’s Sexiest Man Alive. What did you think about that? Did you get teased about it by anyone on set? What was the feedback?
IS: I become tongue-tied because of stuff like that. Of course I get teased by stuff like that, but we all have the ability to get the best out of ourselves and those around us. I think it’s awesome that People magazine was crazy enough to include me in that roster of pretty bad ass dudes, but if they’re crazy enough to believe it then I’m stoked.

PopWrap: First of all, congrats on an amazing episode last week. What did you make of Damon's closing breakdown?
Ian Somerhalder: Aw, thanks man. It was a great one. The thing is that I am as confused as an actor as Damon is as an individual by virtue of the fact that he is such a phenomenally different character than I ever anticipated or planned on him being. Which is great because when it throws him for a loop, it throws me for a loop, so I'm constantly being kept on my toes.
PW: Yea, he does seem to be having a bit of a crisis right now.
Ian: And we all have those cliché man’s existential crisis moments – goodness, as a young man in my twenties, I was in search of finding an answer for it. He truly is experiencing, more than likely, for the first time in 150 years how this whole "feeling" thing works. It is really difficult to grapple with.
PW: I'd imagine that delivering that emotional monologue also took quite a bit out of you.
Ian: That was a very cathartic few hours not only for Damon, but also for me. Sometimes those types of scenes are really, really interesting because they come from a place deep within yourself. You are forced to put yourself through what that character is going through, so there’s an interesting connection there for an actor. This little journey that senior Damon is on is one to be reckoned with. He’s asking real serious questions that we’ve all asked ourselves. It just happens to be coming from a person who is 160 plus years old [laughs].
PW: You said before that Damon today is totally different than how you envisioned him. Could you expand upon that?
Ian: I had called Kevin [Williamson, co-creator], freaking out because I wasn’t ripping more people’s heads off and dancing half-naked with sorority girls. He told me, “Damon is evolving.” There is a 100 episode arc to this guy’s journey and he must evolve … or die.
PW: So you just weren't anticipating his evolution happening so quickly?
Ian: One of the appeals of the show is that it moves very quickly, which is fun because TV doesn’t typically move that way all the time. So Damon went through a pretty quick process of coming to town with an agenda to finding out that his agenda was completely wrong to staying in town because he started to care for people. That raised the stakes for him in a big way. When you forge relationships, you run the risk of caring. That makes it hard to walk away. And Damon, unfortunately, found himself subconsciously wanting to nurture those relationships. Now, he really cares about someone he wouldn’t have normally given a flying s*** about, pardon my French [laughs].
PW: It seems like his relationship with Elena almost opened him up to care about Rose so deeply.
Ian: We’re starting to see human similarities in him, which I understand are important, but it’s a fine balance between having him be Damon but not be Stefan. Stefan has this beautiful humanity but in all reality, Stefan has just grown really good -- through lots of discipline -- at controlling his urge to kill. Because don’t forget, Stefan natural instincts are to kill.
PW: Would you say that we're about to see Damon's dangerous side emerge again?
Ian: It’s difficult to create that fine line of being a caring individual and having him be a brutal killer who can, like Stefan, just turn it off. Does he have the capacity to love? That is his journey onto itself. Damon, I truly think, is being taken for a ride. This emotional journey for him is really difficult. But whether Damon helps a kitten out of a tree or brutally rips someone’s head off, he’ll do it in his own way. And he’ll probably do both of them with the exact same smile.
PW: Will Jules find herself on the receiving end of that smile?
Ian: Jules poses a threat to all that Damon stands for right now. Yes, she’s extremely hot, but a major pain in the ass. So we're really going to show that when someone you deeply care about needs you, you’ll set aside your feelings, your ability to feel pain. Think of that mother who lifts a wrecked car off her child. We can find insane amounts of strength when it comes to protecting those we care about. He’s fighting for something that’s bigger than he is and that changes everything.
