‘The Vampire Diaries’ Season 3 Guide

The CW has released the official synopsis for season 3 of The Vampire Diaries. TVD will keep it’s current time slot on Thursdays at 8.

  • Season three opens the door to learn more about Klaus and The Original Family as his motives for wanting Stefan on his side are finally revealed.
  • As Stefan sinks deeper into the dark side, Damon and Elena struggle with the guilt of their growing bond even as they work together to bring Stefan back from the edge.
  • The ghosts from Jeremy’s past have a powerful message they’re trying to deliver to him, not to mention the impact they’re having on his relationship with Bonnie.
  • As Caroline and Tyler grow closer, a war erupts between their families.
  • Sherry

    I would love to see Katherine return to help Stephan.  She has always said it is about him. I would also like to see Elijah, Damon and Elaine work together. I think a nice spin would be Stephan is a descendent from Klauss, and that is the reason Klauss is wanting to work with him. I cannot wait for Season 3.

  • Simone

    I’m still hoping for DELENA <3.  They're much more soulmates than Stefan and Elena.

  • Dana

     Well we all know that eventually Damon and Elena will get to Stefan but they will have a lot of time to themselves and it’s obvious Elena is struggling to hide the fact she has feelings for Damon so that’ll be interesting to watch!! I doubt Elena will just dump Stefan for Damon when Stefan needs her the most but I hope there’s a little more Damon and Elena!! I’m not Stelena or Delena-I love them both and think that both relationships have their pros and cons!! Elena is one lucky girl to have two sexy, sweet guys madly in love with her when a lot of us girls have none!!

    Now that Damon and Elena kiss, im not that excited. I wish they had paused and ended the show just before they kissed, that would have been something to look forward to next season/

  • Me4472

    damon and elena will be fun 2 watch but i doubt theyll do anything drastic 4 a long time

     I love this promo pic! 

  • D Silva

    This is very exciting news for all the DELENA fans out there!!!!!!!! AWWWWWWWWWWW! 

  • Gäst

    this pic actually describe season 3 … stefan away with klaus and damon and elena got to spend alot more time with eachother

  • Death Angel

    Can’t wait for the Season 3 premier~~!! Everything~~ The originals family, the bloodline, the motives of Niklaus on Stefan~~!! just can’t wait to watch the first episode of season 3.

  • Death Angel

    Something you should look forward beside the kissing, I think it’s the ghosts(Anna & Vicki) that Jere saw~

  • Death Angel

     I like the descendant part, but didn’t Elijah’s heart ripped by Klauss??

  • Crafty-_-jannette

    i hope damon and elena will NOT get together, i want elena and stefan to stay together :Pr

  • Vousie

    Does anyone get the feeling that the people who this story really don’t have their heads screwed on properly. I love this entire show, but I think that things are really getting out of hand here. Especially with Klaus and Stefan. I’m Team Elena Gets Turned Into A Vampire (as soon as possible)!!! I wish / hope they’ll follow the books a little more closely.

  • Spice-gurl

     When is season 3 coming out?

  • Twilight191801

    no his heart wasn’t ripped he had the dagger put in it again. 

  • jessica

    Elijah is dead! in the last episode they showed Klause kill him.

  • Niccc

    they can bring Elijah back to life by taking out the dagger.

  • http://www.facebook.com/latoya.robinson3 LaToya Robinson

    That sounds nice, but if Stephen is a descendent then wouldn’t Damon be as well?

  • elijahtheoriginal

    No way stephan is claus’s decendant..or else there wouldn’t have been need for katherine to have turned stephan in the first place wouldnt it? cuz being a natural descendant from an original would make you a born vampire

  • Abc

    cant wait for season 3 :D
    caroline+tyler
    katherine+damon
    elena+stefan (but they ARE boring at times)
    bonnie+jeremy

  • http://www.facebook.com/emmajane2011 Emma Jane Burgess

    hey klause killed elijah…and katherine is wanted by klause so i doubt she would risk getting killed (again lol) by a hi brid lol

  • http://www.facebook.com/emmajane2011 Emma Jane Burgess

    ahhh yea lol if they ever find him lol

  • Lila

    I’m a Satherine shipper! I love Stefan and Katherine together, so idc what happens to Damon and Elena :P It would be amazing if Katherine helped Stefan through this and stayed alive! I can’t wait to find out Klaus’ motive for Stefan.. :D
    And most importantly – FORWOOD! Caroline and Tyler are just wooooooh! CAN’T WAIT!

  • KraziiIsMe

    LOL at times????? I love Delena:D

  • Natasha

    @Lila I like Katherine and Stefen together too! Nina has an amazing chemistry with Paul when she plays Katherine. I hope they’ll incorporate her into the Stefan/Klaus storyline :) Kluas is delishously twisted. He’s irreputably evil and that makes for an amazing villian. I couldn’t agree more about Tyler and Caroline…we need more of that in season 3 as well ;) Thanks for posting!!

  • WARM TOAST

    FIRST I  HATE KATHERINE …. A LOT !!!!! AND SECOND ELIJAH  IS DEAD AND LAST IT IS ELENA AND STEFAN NOT ELAINE AND STEPHAN!!!!

  • Penguin<3

    y would they he double-crossed them :L 

  • Penguin<3

    i know im hoping that they grow closer elena and stefen drift apart and katherine and stefen get closer :)

  • Penguin<3

    i think they should have kissed because its abit mystrious what will happen next :)

  • edward

    i cant wait to see where klaus is taking stephan

  • Ruby

    what i don’t understand is how Klaus killed Elijah with the dagger if “no immortal can yield it or they die”

  • DEEJAY

    What will probably happen is that will be necessary all 3 classes (wolf/vampire/witch) to kill Klauss. Just like to make him become a hybrid before. Thats just what i think.
    .
    But im not sure how important Jeremy’s ghosts will have in the show. Maybe they’ll tell em how Klauss can be killed.

  • Lauren

    love the plot for season 3 but i would like it if we finally see kathrienes daughter not just see her but mention her also who is she its possibel it could be elena

  • Janetcxl

    That’s a good point – and I think you mean ‘wield’

  • Natasha

    Katherine’s daughter is not Elena. Katherine had her child back in Bulgaria, 1491; the ep is 2.09 ‘Katerina’. I would like to see her in a flashback, you know. See what happened after she was snatched out of poor human Katerina’s arms. Thanks for posting :)!!

  • Day

    does any one know when season three starts?

  • Caitlinbabee

    I cant wait to see what elena and damons kiss will turn into.. as much as i love steffan i would love to see elena and damon get together it would be an amazing twist..elena starting off hating him to now maby loving him….im just so excited../????..

  • Dfseshk

    when is it coming out?

  • http://www.formspring.me/rosaboom rosalovesdamon

    delena is my life,but i dont think the writers are suddenly going to just drop stelena for us damon fans? yes,we all wish they would just kill off stefan nicely and let damon take his place,but thats way to risky:’( but if it is gonna be a delena ending for vampire diaires its seriously going to take a while to get the story sorted…<3
    team damon/delena
    xox

  • Nina_lanter

    in season 3, i want more Stefan and Elena. Maybe many people suppose it will damon and elena but, i believe elena and stefan will back together. 

  • Megan :)

    i think it would be cool if like in the book, stefan gets taken to the dark dimension and damon & elena have to save him, and on the way there relationship increases and the scene in ‘the hotel room’ happens (if you haven’t read the books you won’t understand) and klaus dies, but when he dies the people in the book (cant remember there names,, the fox thingys) come to mystic falls. that would be a really goood season, like they spend most of the season in the dark dimension, then when they get back the fox thingys are there and damon is human. but also in the books, the fox thingys are the reason stefan goes to the dark dimension.

  • Secretperson

    what i don’t understand is how Elijah got inside Alaric’s apartment without Alaric inviting him in.

  • Holly

    I know.  I can’t wait to find out what’s going on there.  If Jeremy is seeing dead people then they would more than likely bring back Jenna.  I’m still p*ssed that they killed her off.

  • Krystalholly11

    yea unless…they aren’t really brothers or relatives maybe one of them was adopted it would explain why they don’t really look anything alike.

  • Kashif

    Want to know in the last episode season 2 how katerina got in the damon & stefon house with cure when it was under Elaine deed she had to ask her permision to be invited in, or perhaps becuase Elaine died by the hands of Klaus that breaches the deed once the owner is dead I dont know that my idea,,,

  • Natasha

    @Kashif Yes, you’re right. Katherine was able to get in because Elena technically died in ep 21, “The Sun Also Rises”.

  • memelany

    i think because Klaus is a hybrid, the usual rules won’t apply to him

  • Prid

    He can’t be killed because of the werewolf and vampire combined makes him a kind of super hybrid. Thats what i recon anyway!!

  • Prid

    We can’t do without Katerine shes our original villan!! She might turn out to be helpful..

  • Prid

    Katerina and Stefan!! Really??  Maybe dark and dark Kat and Damon..

  • Leeleeliu

    It’s STEFAN…not STEPHAN!!! duh?!
    And…It’s ELENA…not ELAINE…
    It’s a single “L” for KLAUS…

  • Leeleeliu

    I’m looking forward to The Vampire Diaries’ comeback!!! I want to know why Vicky and Anna came back, and I want to know if they are back for real or just a bunch of ghosts that haunt Jeremy.

  • Ina

    If they get it out of Stephan, that’d be great! 

  • Ina

    I would love to see Stephan begging to stop being the bad guy and tell Damon where to find Elijah to pull the dagger out of his heart to help them kill Klauss. Also, since Elijah is in a casket with the rest of his family, Elena and Damon should pull all the daggers out of their hearts to work together to kill Klauss. That’d be Epic AWESOME! I can’t wait for Season 3. :)

  • Maddisonn

    Does anyone else totally ship caroline and tyler? I think they are perfect together! :D

  • Shadowcruzer

    You really know that is not true at all.  Damon is a cool charactor and a great friend but soulmates?  Do you think she would really want to be with someone for eternity (if it comes to that) that knocks off innocent people every time something goes wrong in his life?  I don’t buy that they will write her character to want to stay with someone like that forever and if they made him good forever, it would get boring and people would stop watching.  No matter who we are for, Elena and Stefan really are the soulmates.

  • Melissabell

    In the book stefan and damon are only half brothers because they both had different mothers im pretty sure or was it fathers hmmmm well maybe stefans mum could have be related to klaus therefore so is stefan :)

  • Vergil

    what i dont get is deamon and stefan gave theyr house to elena, so she had to reinvite every vampire again… but in the last episode Kathrine came in to give deamon the cure for his werewolf bite…but HOW the hack she got into the house???? she didnt get invited… she just showed up in his bedroom…

  • Melissabell

     WOAH! okay so how come katerina was able to get into the salvatore house if she wasnt invited in by elena? coz they signed the property over to elena so….? how did katerina get in to give damon klaus’ blood?

  • Melissabell

    the books are apparently becoming more like the show because well idk but i love both the books and the show i hope further down the line they link the show to the shadow souls dimension somehow :) :)

  • VampireDiaries 101

    He can’t be killed because he is an Original and they can’t die period. The spell laid on the dagger to kill any immortal won’t work on Original’s because the energy needed wouldn’t be enough to kill an Original.

  • Heizzie

    why did bonnie needed to do the spell to wake jeremy ? he drank jenna’s blood. he should be in transition. weird.

  • Heizzie

    i mean anna not jenna.lol

  • chyna

    nope it wasnt the knife with the oak ash was the one that was inserted to his heart remember elijah is an original

  • Chyna

    I av always been a ‘damon man’ actually to me I think Damon deserves to get a chance with the girl he trully loves….Elena

  • Suppenkasper

    when will the season start? 

  • Anelisa

    I am a huge fan of Bonnie and Jeremy together i would like to see more of their relationship in season 3.

  • Anelisa

    I am also looking forward to see Anna & Vicki next season and how Jeremy handles his relationship with Bonnie

  • anelisa

    I second that, Elena and Stefan are perfect together and not with Damon

  • Sugafox13

    but isn’t Elijah an Original?

  • Jemma A Gordon

    yes but he is not just a vampire he is also a warewolf so he is much stronger than any vampire or warewolf so it may no count fo him.

  • Finalfantasy2k6

    sorry to correct but their names are Stefan Salvatore and Katherine Pierce also know as Katerina Petrova :) but I do agree with you would be nice to see Katerina help Stefan they have a deeper emotional connection than Stefan and Elena. plus i would love Elena and Damon end up together damon is troubled because he was sickeningly manipulated by Katerina, she didn’t compel Damon yet she truly loved Stefan…. Hence why Damon was more anti-heroic at the start of season 1…..

  • Emily Burns

    I hope that nothing happens with Damon and Elena at all. They need to get Stefan back A.S.A.P. and Damon needs to get out of the picture. Team Stefan all the way!!!!!!!!!!!!!<3<3<3

  • daicah

    The kiss is somewhat like a prelude to the next season. come on, we won’t just be getting excited with a kiss. we want something more. a development in elena’s and damon’s relationship perhaps… i mean, what would happen if two people who had hidden feelings for each other kissed; and that one of them had an open relationship with the other’s brother… it’s quite a complication. and it’s worth the wait and excitement.

  • mida

    i dunno about that; but as what damon said, vampires can’t procreate. just as elena is a descendant of katherine, katherine had a child born out of wedlock before she was turned into a vampire… if that’s the case, klaus would have had a child before he became a vampire inorder for stefan to become his descendant.
