The Vampire Diaries: Season Three Premiere

6 Comments

It’s back!  Thank goodness!  Those cold winter months with no sexy vampires to provide a lovely distraction are over.  Vampire Diaries is back for its third season, just in time for lovely weather to arrive in Melbourne, Australia (not sure what the weather is over in the US of A but…I don’t really care, let’s be honest).  Is this a coincidence?  I think not.  Yay!

So, since it’s been about three months, anticipation building, hopes mounting, etc etc and so forth, you’d expect us viewer to be disappointed, no?

Well, I don’t know about you but I was not.  Not at all.  Kevin Williamson and the team at CW can be nasty with their cliffhangers and those plot twists, but when they say they will deliver, they deliver.

So what happened on this week’s episode?

Like usual, if you want the full recap, check out Kim’s blog HERE and then come back for all the juicy stuff we talk about here.

Right.  First off.  Possibly my only complaint for this week, (aside from the lack of Delena, come on!  writers, we need SOMETHING) was Damon’s hair.  WHY?  Last two seasons it has been luscious and gorgeous and unkempt (unlike Stefan’s wig-like bouffant.  Sorry dude, but it had to be said) and this season it’s just…eeh.  Too long.  Too boring.  Just…eeh.  Please get on that Ian Somerhalder.  Please (Although, as a warning girls, I saw pictures from last night’s Emmy’s and he’s still rocking that look.  So we’re stuck with it at least for the next few episodes I’d say).

Anyway.  Hair rant over.  The best bit of this week?  It’s a toughie, but I’m going to go for Stefan delivering.  I feel like Paul Wesley actually had a chance to act.  And isn’t Stefan “the ripper” Salvatore so much more entertaining than Stefan who waits at Elena’s beck and call?  I’m not sure if he has a big master plan, but one would hope so.  But saying that, he did convince Andie Star (if you don’t remember her it’s because she was Damon’s love interest…without the love) to jump off a very tall ledge, causing her to die…right in front of Damon.

And while we all know that Damon has screwed up in the past due to his evil plans (remember when he killed Stefan’s bestie in season one?  Ouch), this does seem to be taking it a bit far.  So does Stefan REALLY have a plan, or has the human blood just turned him more evil than he realised…and he’s in deep trouble no one can get him out of?

Speaking of evil plans…Klaus.  What’s the go with him?  As the only hybrid werewolf-vampire in existence, he has decided to try and make more of himself…but why?  If he does successfully turn a whole lot of werewolves into hybrids, how does he plan on controlling them?  And what use does he have for them?  Damn.  TVD writers, you’ve already got me asking too many questions.

Oh, and whatever happened to Elijah?  He bailed on the good guys, saved his brother and just went…poof?!  Or have I forgotten some important story arch that happened last season…

What other bit was great?  Caroline and Tyler FINALLY getting together, or as they shall be referred to from now on, Forwood (thanks Kim!).  They tried to do the whole “we’re just friends” thing, until Caroline got jealous and finally made a move, and WHAT a move!  It’s at times like this that I love that The Vampire Diaries is rated MA15+ (gotta hate the fade to black…Stephanie Meyer).

However, what should have been a great night backfired miserably for Caroline who tried to do the sneak out in the middle of the night (bad girl! bad vampire!) and ended up being shot with vervain by Tyler’s waiting mum.  Awkward.  How on earth are they going to explain that one?  And I really hope Caroline doesn’t get tortured again, because that was BRUTAL last season.

Any other news?  Bonnie is conveniently not around (except a bad videophone conversation.  Unnecessary.)  Perhaps because Kat Graham has no time for vampires anymore what with her singing career?  (No, that is NOT snarkiness you detected just then…)  Jeremy is still seeing dead people, Alaric is still depressed, and Elena and Damon are no closer to becoming Delena.

In fact, Elena ended the episode by answering a silent call from Stefan and reminding him how much she loved him.  Ugh.  Annoying.

What did you think of the first episode back?  Are you a fan?  What do you think of Forwood?  Will they last?  Or will his mum ruin everything?  Let me know!

More Details About Season Three

Leave a comment

Season three of what you ask?  Season Three of The Vampire Diaries, of course!  What other season threes are almost out at the moment that we’ve been going crazy for?  None.  Exactly.

Now, before you get your panties in a twist,  I read the entire interview (yes, I am a good webgirl like that, doing all the tough jobs…) that I’ve linked below and there are NO SPOILERS.  Just lots of sexy Damon time…ahem, sorry, Ian Somerhalder, time.

Happy now aren’t you?

So Ian Somerhalder sat down with Christina Radish for collider.com and got into the nitty, gritty including how he’s going to cope now that his brother is the crazy, bloodthirsty one (but don’t worry Damon, you’ll still always be the badarse one), THAT kiss with Elena and whether or not he will remain as evil as he has in the previous seasons.

My favourite bit from the interview though.  Whether or not Bonnie and Damon will get together?  Whhhaaaa…?!?!  I know.  My response exactly.  Ian’s response?

Bonnie is hot! Sleeping with a witch would probably be pretty interesting. I hear that, and I understand that. Damon and Bonnie really are, in ways, cut from very similar cloth. Damon and Bonnie have a really cool dynamic. They’re pretty funny together. I remember shooting that scene where they’re dancing together, and I remember saying, “Wow, that really works!” I know that happens in the books. It’s that thing where you hate someone and then you fall for them. But, Damon is so wrapped up in Elena. Could you imagine Jeremy coming after Damon being like, “Stay away from my girlfriend!,” and banging on his chest, and Damon sitting there going, “Really? We hooked up once kid. It was fun. Leave me alone.” But, who knows?

If you want to read the rest of the interview, which includes a disturbing mental image of Damon ripping off a head while handing you a kitten (or something like that), check out the link below and let me know your thoughts, as always!

Is This The Season?

4 Comments

Season three of The Vampire Diaries.  It’s so close I can almost taste it (and it tastes delicious, have you seen how many attractive people are in that show?!?).  September 15.  Eeeeeeeeeeehhh!!  So is this going to be the season where everything happens?  Stefan becomes interesting?  Elena and Damon FINALLY get together and have beautiful vampire babies (or something to that effect, I’m a bit hazy on the details)?  Caroline and Tyler make a vampire-werewolf love match actually work (because let’s be honest Jacob and Reneesme don’t really count)?  Only one way to find out…it’s just a pain in the bum that we have to wait around for our questions to be answered.

However, The CW being the dirty little teasers they are, have released a 30 second “whet your appetite” promo which basically shows Stefan chowing down on some innocent humans.  Ew.  But it also shows Elena being all conflicted and Damon being all sexy and badarse, so really, definitely worth a watch.

Thoughts?

The Vampire Diaries: Season Three

Before you get too excited, cool yourself.  Sadly, season three of The Vampire Diaries doesn’t begin until September.  I know, it IS outrageous.  First off I have to wait until September for Dexter to grace my screen and now I have to spend the lonely winter months without my weekly dose of vampires?  Yes.  I know.  Life is tough, isn’t it?

HOWEVER, I didn’t put this post up just to rub it in everyone’s faces that Damon’s on a holiday (Transylvania perhaps? hahaha), I DO actually have news.  And not just, hey look hot photo news, but REAL news.

So even though VD isn’t back for three months rumours about the plot have already started spreading on what we know as the world wide web.  So I thought, hey, my fellow VD lovers would like to know.  Yes?  Yes.  And before you get too worried, I make sure never to read any juicy spoilers, that you know, actually spoil the show.  So you’re free to read on ahead.

So what’s planned for season three?  First off, the Original vampires are still around.  We find out more about their past, what they’ve been up to for the past, oh thousand years or so, and MOST IMPORTANTLY why Klaus wants Stefan “on the dark side.”  Stefan, for his part…is pretty much just going around gnawing around on people (or something like that).  Caroline and Tyler grow closer and closer (FINALLY!  If she wasn’t immortal and he wasn’t a werewolf…just imagine their babies…), but then their families go all Romeo and Juliet on their arses and start feuding.

Jeremy is still being pestered by those ghosts (“I see dead people”), who are trying to tell him something important (duh), but to the extent that it’s screwing up his and Bonnie relationship.  Perhaps Bonnie likes being the more supernatural of the two?

And now for what we’re ALL been waiting for…Damon and Elena, also known as Delena.  Delena become closer and closer as they try to bring Stefan “from the edge”, but they feel guilty about it (as in, ELENA feels guilty about it…)

So what do you think about the potential plots?  What would you like to see happen in season three?
