It’s time for some spoilers! The week’s episode came to a dramatic end when Stefan ripped out manic Enzo’s heart. Truthfully, Enzo played a huge role in his own death, but that’s besides the point. We saw Enzo cross over to the Other Side, but not completely. With the Other Side disintegrating, it seems that there is a loophole that’s letting him stick around and get some revenge on the Salvatore brothers. Here’s what Ian Somerhalder and Caroline Dries said we should expect from the episodes leading up to the season finale.
So why isn’t Enzo dead? Mainly because Ian Somerhalder threatened that if Dries kills off Enzo, he’s going to quit. But all jokes aside, Dries admitted, “His story isn’t over — he’s going to become kind of this ghost villain moving forward and we’ll see him all the way through the finale as the bad guy. He’s pissed that he’s dead, but that’s amplified by the fact that around him, people are being sucked into the ether just like Vicki, so his concern is, ‘I want out.” How much damage can the hunk cause from other side as he tries to find a way to escape? Well… a lot apparently.
“You just wait, you just wait and see — he’s determined to make Damon’s life and Stefan’s life a living hell,” Dries said.
All of this because Damon killed the love of his life 50 years prior without knowing it.
“I think its the same trajectory as with Damon and Katherine, that deep, deep, love… it’s a delicate thing. I wish Damon could shake him and say let it go. Let’s have some drinks and go to a strip club and be done,” Somerhalder said.
And there’s our next possible hint? No, not strip clubs by Somerhalder did joke that the season finale would take place in Vegas.
Because of the Other Side being on the brink of destruction, Enzo has a lot more flexibility as a ghost than previous ghosts had. He’s able to travel between sides and apparently even talk to Damon. Dries teased that during a certain point, Damon will make Enzo a promise to get him out of there, but under so much duress, he doesn’t really know how to achieve it; how to act on his promise.
Enzo is also our direct link to seeing what’s really happening on the Other Side. While Bonnie is the anchor, Enzo will be the one to explain to us whats happening and how we can stop it. He’ll also be the master villain until the season finale. I don’t know about you but something about Enzo being a villain is just not working for me. I liked him better when he had a bad-boy bromance with Damon.
Dries did reveal that the ultimate goal by season 5’s end is to completely get rid of the Other Side. That means when someone dies, they’ll die for good. She also teased that we can expect at least 3 more character deaths. Who are your guesses? I think Bonnie is going to die for sure. And hopefully, this time it’ll be for good. How many times can someone seriously die and come back to life before it’s just old?
We also see the Mystic Falls gang more united going into the season finale as their trying to protect their home, which is being ripped away by the Travelers.
The travelers storyline has been one that’s confused me pretty much this whole season. This week we found out that all they really want is to reverse the witches curse so that they could finally find a place to stay and call home. Really, it’s that simple? Dries say’s yes. “We were trying to give the Traveler’s the simplest goal in the world, of them saying we just want a place to call home. We usually get criticized for making it so confusing,” she added. Well, now you’re getting criticized because I feel like this whole build up has to be for something more than just territory? I mean come on! Really?
Additionally, we wonder what’s going to happen to the people on the Other Side? Will they all be ripped away into eternity like Katherine and Vicki? And what happens when that happens? Where are they know? Are we really closing the door on all of them forever?
As for exes Damon and Elena– they’ve been trying to stay away from each other and they’ll basically be thrown in a cabin in the woods together and won’t have any other choice. “The push and the pull; it’s always been this way with Elena… it really does make a very dynamic component to their relationship. It creates chemistry, all this cool stuff. It’s pretty evident and it’s there to stay for a while. It’s always uncomfortable,” Somerhalder said. Hmm… do you think that these two will end up together in the season finale? Probably not…. but that doesn’t mean the chemistry isn’t there.
“They don’t have to say anything, but the chemistry exists. Even the storyline of them not dating, the chemistry exists,” added Dries.
As for Tyler, he’s going to become a more prominent character as he’s been suffering through his relationship angst and finally missing Caroline. Except that Caroline won’t be single forever and it seems that she will set her sights on someone and it will cause a rift for her and a friend. Ummm Elena?? Caroline’s totally going to move in for Stefan and it’ll be wonderful!!!! *Fingers crossed* Sorry Tyler!
As for the finale, Dries hopes that the viewers will see this giant thing happen and than when season 6 rolls around, we’ll see people coming back together and reuniting. Ah!! Are you excited for the remainder of the season?? What are your thoughts?

‘Harry Potter’ Live-Action TV Series Might Be Coming to HBO Max Sooner Rather Than Later
Blimey! Harry Potter might be coming to HBO Max.
Deadline reports that a live-action TV series based on the world created in the popular novels-turned-movies could be coming to the streamer.
But don’t pack up your flying car just yet.
At this time, the streamer is only holding “exploratory conversations,” sources say.
“There are no Harry Potter series in development at the studio or on the streaming platform,” HBO Max and Warner Bros. said in a statement clearing up the rumors.
However, that doesn’t mean a spinoff series won’t eventually happen or isn’t a logical move for the franchise.
We’ve seen Disney embrace lots of success with series’ based on the Star Wars or Marvel franchises.
Harry Potter, Hermione, and Ron Weasely may have graduated from Hogwarts, but there’s plenty of magical stories within the castle walls just waiting to be told!
Would you be interested in a Harry Potter spinoff? Let us know in the comments below!
WATCH: ‘Framing Britney Spears’ Documentary Digs Into #FreeBritney Movement and Conservatorship
Are you part of the #BritneyArmy? Have you been following her career religiously since 1998?
If so, you’re probably all too familiar with the #FreeBritney movement, which aims to free the pop star from her controversial conservatorship put in place in 2008 after she experienced several mental breakdowns.
The New York Times Presents will dig deeper into the movement with their latest episode, “Framing Britney Spears” set to debut on February 5.
It will air simultaneously on FX and FX on Hulu.
Per the official synopsis, the standalone documentary will feature “people close to Britney Spears and lawyers tied to her conservatorship now reassess her career as she battles her father in court over who should control her life.”
A teaser trailer for the documentary was released today with one of the featured guests stating that “the way we treated her was disgusting”.
Another guest questions why her dad is making all of her decisions as a third adds that “anytime there’s that amount of money to be made, you have to question the motives of everyone.”
Watch the trailer below:
Dale Moss Accused of Cheating on ‘The Bachelorette’s Clare Crawley During Engagement
With a few notable exceptions (we’re looking at you, Jake Pavelka; ditto, Arie Luyendyk, Jr.), Bachelor Nation couples tend to offer fairly staid reasons for why their relationship wilted.As they’re busily shipping off that Neil Lane diamond and hashing out who gets custody of Chris Harrison in the breakup, the once madly in love duos craft statements about their mutual decision to separate and the deep admiration they still hold for each other. And for a minute there, it appeared Clare Crawley and Dale Moss would be following that script.
Confirming their separation on Instagram Jan. 19, the former NFL athlete shared that it was “the healthiest decision for both of us,” noting they continued to want “the best things for one another.” He doubled down when approached by a reporter while out in New York City hours later, insisting that “Clare and I have a lot of love for each other.”
The split was just one of those things, he continued, blaming his and the Sacramento-based hairstylist’s packed schedules. “Honestly, we’ve just got a lot going on in our lives right now,” he explained, adding that they had every intention of remaining in each other’s orbits as friends: “Clare and I will be cool.”
Wellllllll, unless that’s some sort of hip new slang, he shouldn’t bet on it.
Because not 24 hours after the 32-year-old and the franchise’s 16th lead announced the end of their five-month engagement, leaving the door just slightly ajar for a reconciliation, it became clear that their breakup was more Hannah Brown–Jed Wyatt, less Ben Higgins–Lauren Bushnell. Put plainly, multiple sources familiar with the situation tell E! News they believe Moss has been cheating on Crawley throughout their engagement.
He and the woman in question (E! News has chosen not to name her at this time) have been in communication since at least late 2019, but Moss insisted to Crawley, 39, that theirs was merely a business relationship. Still, “Clare has always been skeptical,” says one source with knowledge of the circumstance. “She never trusted the friendship and thought it was shady.” And as their nascent romance began to splinter, her worst suspicions were confirmed.
The first source tells E! News the woman “has been talking to her friends about sneaking around with Dale.” As for Crawley, continues the source, “she has seen proof” that whenever Moss was in New York City without her, he was with his other flame.
One such occasion came in November—not long after Moss’ proposal aired on TV and he brought his bride-to-be home to South Dakota. Spotted enjoying a late-night candlelit dinner at Cipriani Downtown, “It definitely looked like a date,” shared an eyewitness, noting the pair appeared to leave hand-in-hand. “Dale looked really smiley and happy with her. They were laughing and flirting.”
Suffice to say Crawley isn’t the type to subscribe to the it’s-not-cheating-if-you’re-
Signing on to dole out roses after a memorable stint as Juan Pablo Galavis‘ runner-up, two rounds of Bachelor in Paradiseand a brief Bachelor Winter Games engagement, she was unequivocal about her intentions to find her forever partner. “I am looking for a man that is just like my dad,” she explained during her Good Morning America reveal. “Strong, loving, gentle, compassionate and just a real, genuine, kind man.”
Of utmost importance, she stressed, was someone interested in cozy Friday nights on the couch, someone “who doesn’t want to be in the spotlight.”
Basically, someone not like Moss, as she’s come to learn. Because for all of his smooth moves and uncanny ability to, as Crawley put it, “show up for me,” Moss seemed to arrive at Palm Springs’ La Quinta Resort & Club last summer with visions of podcast hosting, modeling work and sponcon dancing in his head, just like others before him.in other words, he was there for the wrong reasons.
Now, as multiple insiders familiar with their relationship describe Moss as a “fame-seeker,” the first source notes the signs were there all along: “It is obvious now. Things are making sense to her now. She didn’t want to believe it at first but is now heartbroken.”
Because Crawley had been certain she’d be able to sniff out an imposter, knowing what she would and wouldn’t put up with. But it turns out intuition is powerless in the face of overwhelming chemistry.
As viewers saw, Crawley believed in her soul that she’d found her guy in Moss from the moment he stepped out of the limo. Sure, she’d done a little Insta digging beforehand and she didn’t hate his chiseled abs and mega-watt smile, but in person there was something else, that inexplicable belief this was meant to be. “I definitely feel like I just met my husband,” she declared breathlessly.
And the more she and Moss bonded over the loss of her father and his mother and, yes, made out, the more certain she was that the rest of her suitors could pack their bags and go home. “We have this connection where it feels like I’ve known him forever,” she explained to producers. “It’s that intangible chemistry that you just can’t make up and you can’t replace.”
Even better, he seemed just as all-in, telling Crawley, “When we met, I felt love and, like, that’s what I came here for. I’m falling in love with you through this process. I’m not afraid to say that at all. My heart is open and I’m not gonna fight that.”
Can you really blame a girl for getting swept up in it all?
By the time she was flashing a shiny new 4.5-carat diamond, Crawley was so far gone, she bristled at the mere suggestion that what they had was anything less than love at first sight.
“How he makes me feel is literally, like, sunbeams out of my heart, like, into the world,” she explained to Harrison at their make-shift After the Final Rose special. “And I know that sounds so stupid, but I just feel it to my core. And whether it took one day or 10 days or two weeks or two years, this man makes me happy.”
So she dove head first into a future as Mrs. Dale Moss, giddily referring to the South Dakota State alum as “my husband”, announcing her intention to have babies ASAP and dreaming up the perfect way to cement their bond with a collection of island-based elopements. And she brushed off any and all criticism.
“I’d be lying if I said it’s been easy because I’m human,” she admitted on Good Morning America of people questioning Moss’ commitment. “The things people say without knowing the full truth and without seeing exactly how things really happened and genuinely happened, it just blows my mind in a world right now where there’s so much negativity and hate and hard things going on right now.”
But, actually, the full truth seems to be worse than most suspected.
Because Crawley couldn’t shake her anxiety that Moss’ friendship wasn’t as platonic as he claimed it to be. “Dale would always reassure Clare that it was nothing serious,” says the source, but “multiple people have told Clare that Dale was parading around NYC with this girl.” Each time, continues the source, “Clare would confront him about his relationship and tried to question him about it, but he would always deny it.”
