The Vampire Diaries - Season 3 - Discussion

Official Description For The Vampire Diaries Season 3 Premiere – “The Birthday”

IT’S MY PARTY — On the morning of Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) 18th birthday, Caroline (Candice Accola) is busy planning a party, but Elena is focused on searching for any clues that might help her discover where Stefan (Paul Wesley) is. Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is also searching for Stefan, while trying to protect Elena and keep her from doing anything that would draw Klaus’ (Joseph Morgan) attention. Meanwhile, Klaus and Stefan are busy trailing a werewolf named Ray Sutton (guest star David Gallagher, “Super 8”). Now working at the Mystic Grill along with Matt (Zach Roerig), Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) is struggling to understand why he keeps seeing the ghosts of Vicki (guest star Kayla Ewell) and Anna (guest star Malese Jow) since he was brought back to life by Bonnie’s (Kat Graham) magic. Meanwhile, Alaric (Matt Davis) does his best to watch over Elena and Jeremy, while dealing with his grief over Jenna’s death. Finally, Caroline and Tyler (Michael Trevino) face a new and unexpected challenge. John Behring directed the episode written by Kevin Williamson & Julie Plec (#301).

Was great and I am looking forward to the rest of S3. I miss Jenna.

Episode #3.2 “The Hybrid”
THE NEW ORDER — Klaus (Joseph Morgan) puts a plan in motion that will give him even more power, but even with the unwilling participation of werewolf Ray Sutton (guest star David Gallagher), things don’t go exactly as Klaus had planned. Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Alaric (Matt Davis) reluctantly go along with Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) new strategy to find Stefan (Paul Wesley), leading Damon into a dangerous fight with an unexpected enemy. Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) turns to Matt (Zach Roerig) for help as he continues to try to understand what the ghosts from his past want from him. Unaware that Caroline (Candice Accola) is in need of his help, Tyler (Michael Trevino) faces an emotional confrontation with his mother (guest star Susan Walters). Josh Butler directed the episode written by Al Septien & Turi Meyer (#302).

Re: The Vampire Diaries - Season 3 - Discussion

Last night's episode was ok.

I think the real clincher of the night was Stefan killing Damon's faux girlfriend.

The great bromance of Rick/Damon continues.

I don't find Klaus compelling. I just don't care. Elijah was mysterious and interesting. Klaus comes off as his spoiled brat of a brother.

I wonder what Mrs Mayor is going to do with Caroline?

1) YES! It is the most interesting thing of the series!

2) This is an interesting turn...I like Caroline as a vampire...hate her with Tyler in a sexual sense...but like the friendship.

Re: The Vampire Diaries - Season 3 - Discussion

My favorite part of the episode had to be the Stefan/Andy scene - quite creepy. I didn't care for Caroline's Tyler/Matt dilemma much, so I guess it's good that it appears she HAS made a choice. I wish they'd delved into Jeremy's haunting a bit more.

I do wish they'd stop doing blatant product placements. The phone bit wasn't as bad as some of the bing and car ads they've snuck on the show, but it's annoying.

I have to agree that Klaus isn't nearly as interesting as Elijah.

The episode itself was ok, but it set up lots of interesting stuff for the rest of the season to deal with. I have to admit to being a bit of a Caroline/Tyler shipper, so I'm hoping they will keep them together.

Re: The Vampire Diaries - Season 3 - Discussion

Well well well. I finally can post in the "live" show threads.

Tragically Evil Stefan is great. Genius plot twist (and well foreshadowed too) that should enliven the whole season. Taking Stefan out of the equation not only leaves the possibility of sparks between Damon and Elena (which is probably the producers' hidden agenda here) but more interesting for me, opens up the possibility that Damon will be forced to evolve beyond his mopey/snide persona and become a more complex character as well. I think this season will be the watershed for how both brothers are being portrayed. They've been kind of locked in their silos for the first two seasons.

Don't care about Klaus and his silly hybrid scheme. There's something about the guy, he lacks the gravitas to be a really chilling villain. Stefan is way scarier. Klaus just seems like a self-involved twit. I hope we don't have to have him around for the whole season.

Whatever happened to Katherine? Hopefully she scrammed and she can come back later in the season to be inevitably killed for good.

I like the Romeo & Juliet thing with Caroline and Tyler. No points for guessing that Klaus will inevitably threaten Tyler.

They need to come up with a more pro-active motivation for Alaric. Having him mope around and join other people's little schemes ain't cutting it anymore. He's a grownup surrounded by teenagers who are dealing with tragedy and danger. He really should be taking it on himself to be more, I dunno, in charge? I'd like to see him directly challenge Damon's approach to the Stefan problem, if for no other reason than that kind of stuff is great bromance fodder, which is the real reason Alaric's still alive while all the other adults have been falling like chaff.

Didn't we see Katherine skip town in the S2 finale? I am sure she will be back.

I thought it was okay.

This was mostly a set up episode.

I'm really glad that they didn't solve the Stefan problem with just one episode. It looks like this season will focus on him. I guess Stefan is going turn more evil while Damon becomes more good.

I'm not a fan of Klaus. Maybe it's just the actor, but I don't find him threatening at all. I'll take Katherine or Elijah over him anyday. They were a huge part of why the first half of Season two was so good.

Caroline contines to be the highlight of the show. I loved that part when she lifted that guy by the chin at the party because he was in her way and when she told the slutty girl to go away with her powers. Totally something a jealous teenage girl with vampire powers would do. Surprised when she got shot by Mrs Lockwood. The plot thickens. Is it me or do the writers love to torment the poor girl?

Definately not as exciting as the first episode of season two. The first fourteen episodes of season two were so AWESOME. I'm hoping the writers will be able to pull something like that off again. This show has come a long way from the mediocre pilot.

Hmmmm. Do those two look like a couple? Decide for yourself.

I'll be interesting to see how this turns out. Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer play the main characters on True Blood, they met on the show and got married.
