The Vampire Diaries Round Table: Season 3 Preview Edition!

at . Comments

Welcome to a special edition of The Vampire Diaries Round Table.

Editor-in-chief Matt Richenthal and staff writers Steve Marsi and Eric Hochberger have watched the clips, read the interviews and devoured the spoilers - and they simply can't wait for "The Birthday" to air tomorrow night, so these TV Fanatics are looking ahead to season three right here and now.

As always, reader feedback is encouraged on the following questions and answers...


What storyline are you most excited for?
Matt: Alaric and his quest to make everyone stop referring to him as "Ric." At least I hope that happens. But I'll go with the return of Jeremy's ex-girlfriends. I always found this character boring, but it's amazing what the revival of two dead vampires can do.

Steve: I think we're all excited to see Stefan return to his ripper ways. Killing runs counter to the Stefan we know and love, but it's so ingrained in him and given the circumstances that prompted it - saving Damon - you can almost forgive the forthcoming bloodshed. Let 'er rip, Stef.

Eric: Definitely seeing Stefan going on his bloodlust rampage. Why should Damon get to have all the fun?


Will Elena hook up with Damon this season?
Matt: No. I asked Ian Somerhalder about his season-ending kiss at Comic-Con and (shameless plug alert!!!) he told me there was little to it, considering Damon's dying state. As much as VD likes to tease Delena, I don't see these two ever living up to that nickname. They may be featured a lot together this season, but only in the hunt for the man they both love, Stefan.

Steve: This is not unlike the question "Will I be filling in for Matt on tomorrow night's review?" The answer to both is "unfortunately yes," but unlike my stint as TVD critic, expect Delena to last more than a week.

Eric: I desperately try to avoid Vampire Diaries spoilers, so I'm sure I'll come across as an idiot here when I say no. That kiss stemmed from sympathy (and raw attraction, have you seen Damon?!?) when she thought the man was dying. I saw no passion in that smooch. It was like the girl was kissing her brother. Our girl is loyal to Stefan.

Why are Anna and Vicki back from the dead?
Matt: It's all about a spin-off. Prepare yourselves for The Vampire Diaries: Ghost Hunters.

Steve: Because Jeremy clearly hasn't had it rough enough. Not only does everyone close to him die, some of them must now mess with his head as well.

Eric: They've come to haunt Jeremy with the scariest words a man could hear: we're pregnant. And dead. Figure that one out.

What relative of Klaus and Elijah's do you hope to meet next?
Matt: Their sister. Considering how handsome Klaus and Elijah are, the only proper casting here figures to be Megan Fox or Mila Kunis.

Steve: Their black sheep younger brother, Todd. You know, the sibling who for whatever reason just cannot get it done - unable to secure a job, make his own bed or clean up after himself when slaughtering unsuspecting humans. There's one in every family.

Eric: Their father. The original Original.

Make one bold prediction for the season.
Matt: Caroline will get knocked up with Tyler's baby.

Steve: N/A. How can you make a "bold" prediction about a show that makes up its own rules and changes the game on a routine basis? The Vampire Diaries redefines bold. It's why we watch.

Eric: I'm going crazy bold here and predicting the death of Matt this season.  Unlike some other vampire shows (cough cough, True Blood...), this series actually likes keeping things fresh and killing off main characters. Who better to off than my least favorite and the least useful character, Matt? Now that Tyler is clearly stepping up to the plate as Caroline's love interest, the pretty blonde doesn't even have that going for him. So long, sucker.


What storyline are you most excited for?
Forwooooooood!! Dark-Stefan and Vicky (even if I think she turned into a raging bitch while dead)! I also believe that Delena isn't quite happening this season (or ever) Elena isn't Sookie who's running immediately for the next guy!
I actually hope that we will see more from Katherine. I know her story is told but I just love her so much. But I guess we will rather see the original Petrova- girl. So three roles to play might be a bit busy for poor Nina^^
I coudn't care less about Alaric btw....with Jenna dead he's just not important to me at all. Can't wait for tomorrow (since I live in Europe:( )


Damon and Elena belong together!! Their personalities work so much better together than her and Stefan. Any relationship built on a friendship will last the longest, and that is what Damon and Elena have - they've had their ups and downs, but are still drawn to each other. They are soulmates.


What storyline are you most excited for?
Definitely the return of Anna and Vicki! What kind of havoc will they wreak? Will Jeremy finally be important this season? Will Elena hook up with Damon this season?
Nah. Elena is too boring to have an affair with Damon. But of course, they will keep teasing them throughout the season. Why are Anna and Vicki back from the dead?
In the name of a foursome with Beremy. What relative of Klaus and Elijah's do you hope to meet next?
Of course, their father, the first hybrid? Or we could just stick to these hot guys this season. Make one bold prediction for the season.
Stelena. End of the season 3.


yeah!am realy happy u guys re bak


1. I would like to see the attraction between Damon and Elena grow, but not have them get together..... yet. I think this relationship needs some time to simmer before it is final. And I DO want Damon and Elena to be final!!
2. I also want to see this Original Mother and Father!! It would be cool to learn all about the family. Mila Kunis would be PERFECT for a sister!! I am interested in this family, want to see where they go with them...
3. Caro and Tyler. It will be nice to watch the Romeo and Juliet story play out with the Forbes and Lockwood clan's.
Plus, there will be that old thing with Caroline and Matt. He dumped her for being a vampire, and she is bound to be p*ssed at that!!
4. Jeremy and the dead girls, along with the very much living Bonnie!! This should be interesting!!
5. We can't forget Alaric. What will his story line be, besides trying to be a parent figure to Elena and Jer? There might even be a new love in his future!!
6. Can I just say that it has been a very LONG summer, and I am so glad that my favorite show will be back on tomorrow!! Yay!!

Rhianna speranzo

in the books caroline does get pregnant with tyler's babies hahah but that would be awesome... Unfortunately shes a vamp and i think her eggs are frozen lol


Now that True Blood is over until next June, Vampire Diaries is up on the agenda. Damon is the only reason to watch the show. His hot Badness gives the show the much needed sex appeal, for those of us not in high school. He has a good heart, it just hidden behind a lot of walls. Let Stefan go rip everyone up & let Damon have a little Elena time.


i'm sorry, since when does true blood not kill off characters? did you even see the last episode?


The movis is very very nice

David and sabrina 2014

I'm soooooo excited for the arrival to finally come tomorrow. There sure are some crazy and mysterious spoilers that make the show even more better. What I want mostly of the season is to have Klaus out of the picture and any other of his annoying relatives in they come up on the show. I like mostly seeing the love story part of this show and I hope it will appear eventually appear later on in the season. I'm getting hungry for more vampire diaries everytime. XD =) =D =P
