Sorry, nothing on that particular tyke, but it sounds like someone else will have babies on the brain. Producers are currently casting Ingrid, a supposedly barren young woman who will stop at nothing to be with-child — including lying to her husband. (Gee, if only there were a few witches in town who might be able to help her out….)

Esther will make her presence known fast, only aiding to Klaus' destructive rampage. "Klaus has decided that he will only imagine a day when he'll be reunited with Hope while he destroys everyone keeping that child away from him," executive producer Michael Narducci tells us. "So he will make everyone pay." With regard to his relationship with former protégé Marcel, Narducci adds that they're in a really good place. "Klaus has an agenda [and] he knows that of all the allies he could have, Marcel knows the city, knows the layout, the politics and Marcel back in the 1920s and '30s was able to take out the wolves. So if Klaus wants to deal with the Guerreras he'll need someone who knows how to do that." As for Davina's decision to bring back Mikael, she'll have the two to deal with when they find out what she's done. Hayley too will be shattered, but ready to enact revenge, and although she and Elijah had finally kissed before the finale, don't expect that coupling any time soon.
After a big time jump, the premiere opens with Bonnie and Damon still gone. While their whereabouts will be revealed quickly, the question of what happened while they were there will be a season-long arc. Elena will be grieving over the loss of Damon by making some surprising choices and bonding with Stefan and Alaric, who does some bonding of his own with a woman he meets. Get ready for a handful of new faces, including a militia leader (Colin Ferguson) and a tough doctor at the university hospital (Jodi Lyn O'Keefe). Matt will be thriving as he gets involved in the new magic-less community, while Tyler, now back to a human with the werewolf gene, will return to his testosterone-filled, hard-headed personality. Will he reconnect with Caroline, whom executive producer Julie Plec says will take the loss of Bonnie and Damon "in a weird way the hardest"?

When executive producer Julie Plec told us that the mystery of where Bonnie and Damon are would be answered quickly, she wasn't lying: You'll definitely know before the end of the second episode. But pay close attention: Although the setting may look familiar, the duo is definitely in a place that's foreign to them. Perhaps it's not the where that matters at all!

You betcha! (This show is not Fargo.) I posed that very question to TVD's fancy-pants boss Julie Plec in between begging for her to keep Alaric alive forever and badgering her for scoop on when Delena will reunite. "There is a big bad. it's a long, slow-burn mythology that will unfold over the course of the entire season and will really impact each of our character in deep ways and it's smart and it's interesting and it's small, which I like," she teases. "Instead of trying to top ourselves year to year, we try to scale back and see if we can keep it really personal and rooted in character." Right. But back to that whole Delena thing...

You’re not alone in your excitement, and the former star certainly won’t be the season’s sole addition. Episode 6 will introduce us to a “respected and feared” werewolf pack leader. What sets this guy apart from the rest of the Big Easy’s lycanthropes? He’ll spend quite a bit of (non-romantic) time with Davina, teaching her how to extend her power. In short, Klaus will be a fan of this guy.

Him reconciling with Klaus wasn't enough? I hear Marcel will actually form a new ally in Season 2. "Marcel is going to have his own agenda with what to do now that his community has been decimated," executive producer Michael Narducci says. "He finds very quickly a connection to Josh." I wonder how Davina will feel about her BFF cozying up to Marcel...
It should come as no surprise that the most anal-retentive vampire will have specific thoughts on how to soldier through the finale's tragedies. "She is trying to hold the whole group together and is just, in her mind, failing miserably and really struggling," executive producer Julie Plec says. Her job will be made especially difficult when it comes to dealing with Stefan, who "reacts to Damon's loss in ways we wouldn't expect," Plec teases.
Funny you should refer to them as a couple as their relationship is going to be explored big-time in the coming season. “We know about their marriage, and we know that they made their kids into vampires, but do they like each other?” executive producer Julie Plec muses. “Do they hate each other? We’re having so much fun writing the history of Esther and Mikael right now.” Sounds like their future is just as mysterious as their past.

A much stronger (and funnier!) Davina, which we are so down with. "It's really cool to see little Davina completely controlling him," Danielle Campbell teased of Davina and Mikael's buddy sitcom-esque dynamic in season two. "They have a lot of banter. It's just fun. Davina is just completely sarcastic with him and doesn't care about anything he's saying." But he won't be the only new guy in her life as Davina is getting a new love interest. "There's a lot to feel out with it, so she's taking her time," Campbell said of the young witch's slow-burn of a new romance with a certain Teen Wolf guest star.

I have good news for you! "Marcel and Klaus are in a really good place," executive producer Michael Narducci says, hinting that Marcel's experience fighting werewolves is valuable. "Klaus has an agenda. ... If Klaus wants to deal with the Guerreras, he'll need someone who knows how to do that." Though Marcel won't remember that he helped save the Baby Hope, he and Klaus "will come to terms with one another in a really cool way," Narducci teases.

Our favorite quarterback is doing just fine. "He misses his friends, but he's dealing with his grief in his own way and he's channelling it into something very positive by getting involved in the community and really trying to make something of himself," executive producer Julie Plec says. "So he's thriving, ironically, in the absence of the supernatural elements in Mystic Falls." As for Tyler, Plec adds, "Tyler is back to being a guy with a werewolf curse. He's been down this road, and it's really difficult and he's got testosterone and machismo, so how does he keep himself together? He'll find help in some fun sources."
Come on, is there really time for romance in NoLA?! "Elijah should be nervous about a lot of things. Elijah is going to go through some s--t this year at the beginning of the season,"Julie Plec told us. "It's not going to be all puppy dogs and rainbows for him at all." And one thing he'll definitely have to worry about? Hayley "reconnecting" with Jackson, as Nathan Parsons "will make his return about six episodes in."
