The Vampire Diaries has officially been renewed for a third season and their mythology becomes more developed by the episode. Per the last installment of TVD, Elijah and Klaus are brothers who came from the original family of vampires, who were human once upon a time. Executive Producer Julie Plec teases that Season 3 will be ‘The Year Of The Originals’. She doesn’t confirm that Gillies~Elijah and Morgan~Klaus will be back for season three, but reveals a few spoilery details to wet our appetites ;).

“That is a decision that gets made when we break story for Season 3, which happens after I get back from Mexico,” Plec laughs. “We didn’t have the true mythology of how to kill an original worked out and then we introduced Elijah and freakin’ Dan Gillies walks in that door in the big old haunted house in the suit and he has the accent and everything about him is so great, and we were like ‘Well! We can’t make him easy to kill,’” Plec says. “We don’t want our characters to look stupid for not being able to get rid of him, so we just made it harder and harder until we reached the point where we were like, ‘Screw it, Originals are immortal!’ It’s honestly because of Dan and the work that he did.”

She goes on to say that the decision to make Elijah and Klaus brothers was an easy one and even though they won’t meet in tonight’s episode there reunion will be intense.

“The show, at its core, is about family,” Plec says. “It’s about the love of family. It was interesting to play in the 1400s, obviously, [and] there’s a different hierarchy going on when we meet again in the modern day. There will be a very different dynamic between the two I think.”

     All that I wanted during the second season was for Damon and Elena to be together. And now that they are… it’s weird. I didn’t like the way it happened, and I hope that Elena gets deep with Damon before Stefan is back from hes killing journey.  I have the feeling that the season three is going to be the best season of the series until now.

  • Myisha-<3in Damon fan:p
