If you like Joseph Morgan, you’ll love Armistice. If you don’t like Joseph Morgan, Armistice just might change your mind. Joseph plays A.J. Budd, a Royal Marine who wakes up one morning and discovers he is alone, locked in an unfamiliar house. There is absolutely no escape, no TV, no radio, no books. His only excitement is a monster that appears every morning, forcing A.J. to fight for his life. Hidden deep in a hollow spot in the wall, he discovers letters and realizes he is not the first to suffer this fate. We spoke to Joseph about carrying a film, executive producing, and we even slipped in a Vampire Diaries / The Originals question.

Davina admits that Kieran knows all about Marcel - they are even kind of friends - which rocks Cami’s world.
There is an embarrassment of horror riches on TV these days. In some ways, that makes it easier to choose ten best episodes, because you have a ton of options to choose from. In other ways, it makes it more difficult because there are so many options to choose from, and you have to sift through the bad to get to the good.
