CW recently aired the very first episode of Vampire Diaries season 3, which was called “The Birthday. ” It skipped ahead a couple weeks to Elena’s 18th birthday party. Unfortunately, Elena wasn’t really in the state of mind to celebrate because the love of her life Stefan is gone, and acting very bad with horrible Klaus.
Elena and Damon continued to try and keep track of Stefan’s location, and consequently see that Stefan has pretty much gone off the deep end, if not completely, delivering his old “ripper” murdering ways. Apparently, he was assisting Klaus with a brand new plan to make more vampire/werewolf hybrids like him, and his first victim was a werewolf character named Ray Sutton.
Meanwhile, Tyler and Caroline finally give into their sexual urges, and did the nasty, while Jeremy was constantly getting haunted by his past, deceased girlfriends Anna and Vicki. He also made an effort to keep hiding it from Matt, but he could see something was going on with him.
Stefan also served a very crazy death to Damon’s girlfriend Andy to get Damon to leave him alone. Eventually, it ended with Stefan delivering a mute phone call to Elena, that was fairly emotionally charged, despite the fact that he didn’t make one sound. I thought the episode was a very good introduction to the brand new season, and set a pretty excellent tone for all the craziness that’s coming up.
The following episode is labeled “The Hybrid, ” and will show Damon entering into extra werewolf dangers, while seeking to perform one more of Elena’s wild, crazy plans to rescue Stefan from the grip of bad Klaus. Elena is very much in love with Stefan and simply won’t give up her search for him. At one point, she’s seen telling Damon about the bizarre phone call Stefan made to her, and tries to convince Damon he can still be rescued.
Meanwhile, Jeremy is actually going to go to Matt for support when the whole Anna/Vicki ghosts thing becomes too serious for him. Tyler is going to have an intense confrontation with his mother, totally unaware she just violently trapped Caroline. It sounds like it will definitely be intense.
Also, Tyler’s mother is going to make a phone call to an unknown person, claiming that she’s run into some vampire trouble. It’s really crazy because she does it in a way to suggest she’s always been aware of vampires.
