Not Even Julie Plec Noticed This 'Vampire Diaries' Connection While Directing Tonight's 'Riverdale'

Julie Plec directed tonight’s episode of Riverdale — and even she missed out on this connection until it hit her.

Die hard Vampire Diaries fans might have picked it up though — Thistle House (the home that Cheryl and Penelope Blossom live in now) is the Salvatore Boarding House!

“It was so funny, I had seen Thistlehouse on camera but it hadn’t registered with me,” Julie shared in a new interview with Bustle. “And when we pulled up the driveway for the location scout to go see it, I was like, ‘This is so familiar. I feel like I’ve been here before.’”

The house was used as the Salvatore Boarding House in the first ever Vampire Diaries episode.

She adds, “I actually took a good look at the house and realized it was the Salvatore House from [The Vampire Diaries] pilot. Isn’t that hilarious? Because we shot the pilot in Vancouver [before moving to Atlanta for the series]. And the backyard of it which is so gorgeous is where we built our cemetery. That was a nice flashback!”

Riverdale airs TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.

Paul Wesley Thinks Stefan's Ending on 'The Vampire Diaries' Was 'Poetic Justice'

Paul Wesley Thinks Stefan's Ending on 'The Vampire Diaries' Was 'Poetic Justice'

Many The Vampire Diaries fans were NOT pleased with Stefan Salvatore’s fate at the close of the show — but actor Paul Wesley thinks it was actually a fitting end for his character.

“It was something I was really hoping for,” he told TVLine in a new interview, “I’d put in a good word, because I felt it needed end that way. I thought he really needed to die.”

He went on to say that he thought all of Stefan’s evil actions needed atoning for.

“It was important poetic justice for all the bad things he’d done,” he continued. “He was a murderer ultimately. He’d found so much redemption, yet was still tormented. For me, him making that ultimate sacrifice was a great way to say goodbye.”

Paul actually thought the ending for his character was so perfect that he even teared up when reading the finale script for the first time.

TELL JJJ: What do you think? Should Stefan have died?

Will Paul Wesley Make a Cameo on 'The Originals'?

Paul Wesley‘s character from The Vampire Diaries is – SPOILER ALERT! – dead, but fans are still hoping to see him pop up on The Originals.

Several characters from the series have made cameos on the spinoff, but it doesn’t sound like we’ll see Stefan show up in New Orleans any time soon.

“I don’t think so. I think Stefan has been laid to rest,” Paul told TVGuide.com. “I’m trying to sort of do the opposite of what I’ve being doing for eight years for the most part.”

“I don’t think I’ll be doing a supernatural show anytime soon, that’s for sure,” he added. “I’m trying to branch out and do different things.”

Ahem, Paul may have forgotten he just directed an episode of a very supernatural show in Shadowhunters!

Julie Plec Reveals Deleted 'Vampire Diaries' Steroline Scene

Julie Plec Reveals Deleted 'Vampire Diaries' Steroline Scene

Stefan and Caroline share one of the sweetest kisses ever in this Vampire Diaries deleted scene that was just unveiled by none other than showrunner Julie Plec.

It seems that the scene was lost after putting together all the extras for the DVD boxset that will be coming out soon.

“A little backstory — our series finale had no official deleted scenes because we were able to get everything in,” Julie wrote to fans on Twitter.

“However a lot of scenes lost a lot of time from within the scenes themselves. Many darlings were killed. We had to lose some special moments.”

She adds, “I had asked for this particular moment to be included on the DVD, but along the way that request got lost in translation. @TheCW and @WarnerBrosEnt were kind enough to dig it up & send me a link so I could post.”

Check out one of the only deleted scenes below!
