Will ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Be Flashing Forward In The Season 3 Premiere?!?!

3 years ago, by

Ausiello just dropped a huge blind item on everyone’s spoiler lap, referring to the show’s fanbase as ‘crazy-rabid and passionate’. I must say that the first thought in my mind was The Vampire Diaries. TVD fans are a crazy-rabid fanbase with more passion than most. In addition, it would align well with the plot line we already know to be true; Taking us forward in time to Stefan, being fully engrossed with his darker side, wreaking havoc with original baddy Klaus.

The show in question will pick up right where last May’s season-ending cliffhanger left off… and then flash forward at some point during the episode. The insider wouldn’t reveal the exact magnitude of the time jump, except to say that it will be somewhere between three and 18 months. The source adds, somewhat cryptically, that, “Things are very different when the action picks up. A lot happens during that [skipped] time.”

It’s one hell of a twist and we know how much our TVD writers love to shock and amaze.
So, what are your thoughts?!
Could ‘the show in question’ be The Vampire Diaries?

    Did they just pull a True Blood?

    3- 18 months? 18!??!?!?!? Dude if they stupidly do a flash forward then please let it be only 3 months. Let them start their senior year or something. One Tree Hill went done hill when the skipped 4 years ahead please don’t do the same with TVD.

    i believe it’s cool and interesting, let’s see what happens

    They’d be all out of high school then. Wouldn’t that be counterproductive considering all the effort in timeline fudging to keep them in there? Plus, what would happen to all the development with the relationships/characters? I don’t want to see TC and DE just thrown together like that. There should be more build-up. 3-6 months is okay or however long to start senior year.

    Well, I don’t know if I like this or not… True Blood just jumped 13 months but still entertains me… Weeds jumped out 3 to three years later and somehow managed to get me interested in it again as I was losing any hope of ever liking it again. I wish TVD would stay where it’s at and keep going ahead, but from what I understood of the books they at one point jumped ahead several years… SO, who knows, it may be alright….

    What episode is that pic of Delena from.

  • Deepseed

    I think this spoiler pertains to Bones?

    I think I’d like to see that… it would be very interesting

  • D Silva

    OK, I heard that DELENA  wasnt going to just get thrown together. They must be talking about another show. Please don’t do that to VD because DELENA won’t be epic that way!

    I thought that spoiler was about supernatural…or at least someone told me it was.

    No,in True Blood is different,because,from Sookie’s point of view,she spent 10,maybe 15 minutes in fairyland.In Earth,a whole year was passed.If the show really is TVD,it’d be 3/18 months passed for everybody,and with Stefan gone for so long…Damon and Elena’d probably get a lot closer,and this would change things.

    guys it will be fine as fuck, this show is flawless and whatever they do will be amazing. TVD is not a show set in high school so they can do whatever they like. i am so fucking stoked. stoked, i tell you.

    ahh,i can just imagine the flash forward being damon and elena properly in love and going out because in those few missing months stefan bit elena and she was dying and damon saved her:’) and stefan goes and dies in a hole somewhere. x

    Yeah, sound like True Blood! (Really? So many -damn good- ideas in the fanfics….)

    This is definitely True Blood…

    Did anybody read it properly? or am i misunderstanding what the article said. It says FLASH FORWARD, as in one scene? then back to where season 3 will be starting in the first place? I think thats an EXCELLENT idea! If i’ve perceived what they’ve said properly. Just like in previous seasons where there were flashbacks of 1864. Only its in the future! I doubt they will give away if Damon and Elena are together or not. I mean come on, its only the first episode there talking about here. I would have liked to of seen a more dramatic ending for season 2 seeing as Katherine tells Damon and Elena that Stefan will be gone for 10 years!?!?! Elena should have been bawling! just saying haha. 

  • Abc

    hmm, if it is for vd then i hope they show a flash froward into the future. showing some epic, mysterious scene then going back to the present and expalining how that scene in the future came to be. that would be better than randomly skipping time :/

    I am hoping that they keep Katherine in Mystic Falls and still staying at the Salvatore house…do you know if they are planning on it…and I think that  Stefan and Katherine would do better together cuz Elena is just so needy, which is probably good for Damon(he is a badass) nothing like Katherine anyway(good and bad twin it is awesome)…is that a bad thing…I love both guys so I am hoping that maybe this flash forward brings out the bad in both guys cuz that would rock and I agree about the ending to season 2…Katherine was more upset about Stefan then Elena was…Which  is why I think they should keep Katherine, cuz her and Stefan have alot going on and unfinished business..does that make any sense? Katherine’s love though warped is totally real for Stefan as she told Damon and Stefan when she returned. She knew who she really loved and I am hoping the PTB keep her in Mystic Falls within Stefan’s orbit….sorry that the reply is so long…I just was disappointed by the ending especially when they made Elijah seem like he let his guard down and how easily Elena seemed unworried about Stefan. Okay I am so sorry again for the long reply…I so don’t even think I made sense or stayed on topic, I’m so sorry

    i want delena <3 but i hope the flash forward won't jump alot…like i dont rlyy want it to skip too much…so i hope its just a 3 month jump…and OMG!! i dont want the new caracter becky to come on to the show…she's gna ruin everything for stefan..like he loves elena..but elena will start to love damon since stefan has turned into a badass :( …and i want katherine gone. i hate her. shes a bitch . and i want elijah back to life by the end of the season and for him to kill his stupid evil brother klaus .

  • Elizabethjmoore08

    its the exact same quote used for the time jump in castle to i’m not sure i actually believe this one anymore

  • TVDThurdays

    I think it could be interesting… maybe Bonnie has a vision of what the world with Stefan on Klaus’ team would turn out to be like, and the whole epsiode, they flash back and forth between the future and the present.
