Vampire Diaries: Ian Somerhalder on Being a First-Time Director, the Ladies in Damon's Life

Originally posted 03/12/2015 03:30PM

After six years starring as Damon on The Vampire Diaries, Ian Somerhalder moved behind the camera for the very first time to direct Thursday's episode.

Having just learned that his mother may have actually been alive (or, more accurately, undead) for the past 100-plus years, Damon enters "The Downward Spiral" with a whole new set of abandonment issues.

In an exclusive chat with PEOPLE, the actor, 36, opens up about what it was like to direct for the very first time (which, funnily enough, segued into musings about the inevitable march of time), what's coming up for Delena (and even Bamon) and his ideal ending for The Vampire Diaries.

[BRIGHTCOVE "4102856065001" "" "" "auto"] Could Damon and Stefan's mother be a vampire?

Though Damon (Ian Somerhalder) had always been under the impression that his mother died of consumption in 1858, the last episode of The Vampire Diaries revealed that Lily (Annie Wersching) was alive in a prison world in 1903 after Bonnie (Kat Graham) caught her on video.

When TVD returns from hiatus Thursday, Somerhalder makes his directorial debut in an episode that has Damon trying to get to the truth about his mother.

The Vampire Diaries's Steven R. McQueen Takes a Look Back Before His Last Episode

Originally posted 02/12/2015 06:10PM

Thursday's Vampire Diaries may be called "Stay," but for Steven R. McQueen, it's time to go.

The episode marks McQueen's final episode as Jeremy Gilbert, a role he's played since the TVD pilot in 2009. The episode sees Jeremy and his sister Elena (Nina Dobrev) reminiscing before he hits the road, so it only seems appropriate that McQueen, 26, tells PEOPLE some of his standout memories from his six-season run.

The Vampire Diaries' midseason premiere, "Woke Up with a Monster," certainly gave fans a lot of options as to who might meet an impending and untimely end in the near future.

As the series begins its sprint to the season finale, characters both beloved and brand new stared down death.

Star Paul Wesley directed the episode, which picked up directly after Kai (Chris Wood) abducted Elena (Nina Dobrev) and as Caroline (Candice Accola) struggled to accept her mother's cancer diagnosis. Even amid those merciless circumstances, Elena and Sheriff Forbes (Marguerite MacIntyre) weren't the only folks in Mystic Falls whose lives were in peril.

But who looks most likely to say goodbye sooner rather than later?
