Riverdale and The Vampire Diaries don't have anything at all in common, however they're totally connected... in a way.
Julie Plec, TVD's director, stepped onto the Riverdale scene to guest direct for the February 7th episode... and got some major deja vu when she stepped on location.
Cheryl Blossom has been living in the house they used for the Salvatore brothers in the pilot episode.
"It was so funny, I had seen Thistlehouse on camera but it hadn't registered with me," she told 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.'"
"I actually took a good look at the house and realised 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!"
