‘The Vampire Diaries’ Spoilers: 12 Teases For the Final 3 Episodes Of Season 3

The Hollywood Reporter made the pre-screening on tonight’s semi-annual Decade Dance episode, “Do Not Go Gentle”. The Vampire Diaries Executive Producer Julie Plec, along with cast members Steven R. McQueen, Candice Accola, Michael Trevino and Zach Roerig were on hand to help with spoilery goodness. The group teased emotional and physical death, character transformations, insights not previously revealed and of course, love triangles.

Brotherly Compromise: In the episode airing next week, there is a sweet moment shared between Damon and Stefan, one that shows that though they may be in love with the same girl, “they might just survive this,” Plec teased. When Ian Somerhalder came into the The Hollywood Reporter offices recently, he revealed just what Plec was alluding to, saying that the Salvatore brothers decide that whoever Elena ultimately chooses will stay, while the other one will leave town.
Stefan Revisits His Emotions: There are several key Stefan and Elena scenes in tomorrow night’s episode, though one is broken up by one of Mystic Falls’ favorite “villains.” In any case, it’s a big step for the once-happy couple. “It’s finally him saying [to Elena], ‘It is OK to feel. I heard you all those times when you that. Now let me give that back to you’,” Plec said.
Caroline’s Multiple Suitors: If Caroline was in her current predicament (with Klaus and Tyler vying for her affections) in season one, she may have dealt with things far differently than she has. At the moment, Caroline – as it’s seen in Thursday’s episode – sticks with her gut and fends off Klaus’ advances at the dance, which ends up pissing off Tyler. “She is fighting like hell to have a normal relationship with her boyfriend in high school,” Accola said. Trevino added that Tyler just “might take some action” when it comes to Klaus in next week’s episode.
Simpler Times: The finale will feature a glimpse into Elena’s life in simpler times, when vampires weren’t in the picture. But there will be a small nugget revealed. “It’s a small little runner that goes throughout the episode as Elena is looking back at a part of her life when things were more simple, at least from a supernatural level,” Plec said, who was adamant in saying that the incident that killed her parents was “an accident.” “We actually will get a little flash of something else during that happened during that time that we didn’t really consider and it’s more an emotional thing than it is a suspense thing.”
On the Up and Up: Though Jeremy started the series on the wrong foot (drug issues and all), according to Plec, now that he’s back in Mystic Falls, “Jeremy is on the up.” So if there was any doubt or reason to believe he had ulterior motives with any developments (especially in regards to the Delena kiss), put them on the back burner – for now.
Damon’s New Drinking Buddy: Dr. Meredith Fell (Torrey DeVitto) could be sticking around past the third season, Plec said, even entertaining the fact that Meredith could become one of Damon’s new drinking buddies. Or perhaps more?

Rebekah’s New Ally?: When posed the question of whether Rebekah will find someone who will stick by her side, Plec was coy, bringing up the May 10 season finale as a possible indicator of more to come on that end.
Series Endgame Set: Plec revealed that she and executive producer Kevin Williamson set the series’ ending while writing the seventh episode of season two in an Atlanta mall. “We were tired and stressed and talked about the last character moments of the show and both started crying in the middle of the mall and just felt like that was right,” she recalled. Ideas as to what the lasting image could be?
Shift in the Gilbert Household: After “Do Not Go Gentle” plays out, there may be a change in the Gilbert house – and it’s a doozy. We won’t reveal just how said change happens, but someone else may have to step up in a very big way.
Safe for Now: With Jeremy back home, will the ring have the same impact on him as it does on Alaric? Maybe, but maybe not. “It definitely means that the stakes of death and resuscitation are possibly not as intense for Jeremy as they were for Alaric,” Plec said. “It might not come in the form of Jekyll and Hyde alter-ego.” The rings will “be in play for awhile,” she also hinted.
Heading Off to College?: Season four will “take us through the rest of their final year in high school,” Plec says. “They’re making decisions about their future … Do I stay or do I go?” Will there be a Mystic University that pops up? “No, there will not be a Mystic U, although how great,” Plec said. “Grams taught at a nearby university and Jenna was getting her masters degree so there’s something out there that we’ll be introducing and seeing in season four.”
Matt and Elena, Not so Perfect: The finale episode spotlights the imperfect relationship Matt and Elena shared. “We get a nice little flash of when they were dating, that they were themselves a troubled relationship,” Plec said. “Even though she’s remembering a simpler time, her problems were just as complicated.”

    i love damon <3

  • Brooke

    Lame. If damon and meredith might be more then does that mean Elena will choose Stefan again? Ugh I’m getting sick of this show and the disappointment. Delena need to be the choice or it’s gonna get old.

  • Delena<3

    It could be that she just meant friends… It’s not like Damon sleeps with his other drinking buddy: Alaric. xP.

  • Louisesvensson

    i agree- i think that a good tv show must have all predictions along, if she doesnt choose damon we shoud have been drag throug three season where he was in love with her. if they are going after the book they should have made it more clear, and the book arent good television – because then damon and bonnie has big role the books, that would make us think they perhaps have shot, that they pulled out of the series so we only thinks damon is in the shows because of elena, then make something happen, and then meredith and damon no no no . whats with that??
    im for delena but i just want her to pick a guy, we go from delena moments to stelena moments and its getting pretty old.

  • VampireDiariesFan

    Aghh!!! I really hope Elena picks Damon for now and Stefan at the end. She needs to explore her feelings for Damon and give him a shot, but in the end I want Stefan to be with Elena. I wish Rose would come back and be with Damon. She was PERFECT for him. Plus she wasn’t Stefan’s hand-me-down. 

  • Hey135

    I agree

  • Madair1014

    I am too. I wish Delena is gonna happen. But now its obvious she is choosing Stefan. I think Elena is so critical. Stefan killed so many people brutally, and even back in the 1920′s he did the same thing.He was real bad.  BUT because this time he was compelled to turn off his emotions by Claus, Elena will forgive him and not think of him evil. HOW is that they think Claus is so evil????double standard

    I am hoping the long break will give me a chance to become unhooked on this show.  It is so good. I cannot go through another season of delena/stelena.  It has really been a roller coaster.  Elena choosing Stefan is thoroughly disappointing.  I was so sad to see Alaric turned into a vampire.  Klaus’ sadness made my heart ache.  Tyler is just awesome but I don’t think he gets to keep the girl (Caroline).  Bonnie’s new love interest is a joke.  I wanted Bonnie and Jeremy to work it out.  Damon hooking up with Meredith, I just can’t buy it. 
     WOW!!  Damon might be a little slutty but, Meredith? Let them bring in a love interest for Damon just as they did for Bonnie.  I would love to see Matt and Rebecca together, that would be awesome.

    This used to be my favorite show and now I’m reaching my breaking point. She’s obviously going to choose Stefan and it sucks! Damon has been there for Elena all season, he didn’t sleep around with anyone except rebekkah and that wasnt till after Elena basically told him that Damon loving her was a problem. I’m so sick of Damon just being viewed as the mean vampire man whore who “may be more than merideths drinking buddy” like what the hell tvd. Damon hasn’t been that guy in a long time. Damon deserves Elena. He has been so sweet to her and loves her so much. He’s been there to save her from Stefan multiple times this season and apparently all that was for nothing because she will choose Stefan. It’s not right and it’s not fair to the Delena fans who have waited a long time for Elena to be with Damon and when the writers finally give us a taste of Damon and Elena they pull away. Im not going to watch another season of Stelena and their pathetic love story. It’s time to move on to greater things. Stelena is old news. I’m so sick of being toyed with.

  • Freedom_star

    You are reading my mind…
    I will not watch next season if she stays with Stefan. It is so boring and old…

  • Freedom_star

    It is getting very old… I dont understand how cannot producers see that Stelena is boring! and have been watched for 2 seasons….   

  • A_softsong

    The choice between Stefan and Damon is enormous. 

    –Stefan will always be the gentle kind suitor who is still
    suppressing his love for Katherine.  He
    kisses will speak of safety and security. 
      He represents the father figure.  He will have a shoulder for her and take care
    of all of her problems.  She will
    stagnate in his love forever.  She will
    grow old resisting her inner desires. 
    She will be looking for Damon everywhere, at the store, at the red light
    on the street and when she does see him she will bleed with desire.  Stefan is always going to take the easy
    route, never push the limits and accept the situation as it is. Elena would be
    allowed to grow old and die.

    –Damon is dangerous, mysterious, full of surprises, and he has
    gotten over Katherine.  He will always
    give her something to look forward to, a bump in the kitchen, an unexpected
    hug, and passion.  Elena’s life will be
    fulfilled and Stefan will be thought of when brought up in conversation.  She will be able to express herself and he
    will give her/allow her to be herself as long as he can save her. Damon would
    even find a way for them to have children if that is her desire.  Damon will make things happen as long as it makes
    them happy.  Life will not be stagnating
    and yes, he’d turn her into a vampire.

    If they are saying there may be something to Damon and Meredith then Elena will choose Stefan, and I’m sorry, but that counts me out. I’m tired of them. Three seasons of dangling Delena on a thread before me has been quite enough, thank you. Good luck with the show when the DE fans check out after having enough of it too!

  • Becbea88

    I comp. agree with the whole Stefan never fully got over Katherine.  Hello….he came back to Mystic Falls to meet Elena BECAUSE she looked just like Katherine who he still loved!  Damon always from the start honest about his love for Katherine and she screwed him over opened his eyes and he has no love left for her.  He love Elena for Elena faults and all.  Like Rose said Stefan will always be the safe choice he will always love her and be good and be good to her, but Damon pushes her…makes her realize and think about things she doesn’t always want to.  I AM ALL FOR DELENA even though it’s a sick feeling she will choose Stefan
