The 25 Best Things About The Vampire Diaries Season 3

The Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec wasn't messing around when she named Season 3 the "Season of the Originals." Whether you liked him or not (let's be real: you liked him) Klaus's influence has been so profound over the past, say, thirty episodes, that his introduction to the show has transcended the normal story arc and become integral to the saga. It's no wonder he wasn't killed off! But the most impressive thing about Season 3 is that even though many of its storylines were dictated by ancient outsiders, the show still took the time to involve the main characters in new and exciting ways. We got unexpected team-ups (Katherine and Jeremy! Bonnie and Matt!), truly moving moments with formerly useless parents, even an ambitious plotline engineered to turn a beloved character into a total villain. There were so many moving parts, spinning plates, and, I don't know, somersaulting dolphins, that were handled perfectly this season that it's impossible not to be impressed by just how much was pulled off.

Like, has there ever been a nine-episode stretch of any TV show as flawless as the first nine of this season? (Okay ONE flaw: Damon's haircut.) At the time I wondered how the season could keep raising the stakes (a vampire vampire hunter? Ghosts?) and still stick the landing. If we're being honest here, Season 3 may have stumbled a bit toward the end: The Stefan-turning-good storyline felt rushed and unsatisfying; three new characters were way sucky (Bill, Abby, Sage); Esther's schemes seemed haphazard and random; Elena deciding she HAD to make a romantic decision felt really arbitrary. So yeah, there WERE issues. But man, the first half of this season was just incredible. But you know what? I'm gonna stop boring you with vague assessments and start giving you some cold hard facts (of my opinions)!

Here are my picks for the absolute best things about Season 3:



1. Scary Stefan


For as much as I am a bragging, stubborn, know-it-all, few things bring me more pleasure in entertainment than being proven wrong. The biggest way this season proved me wrong was in just how long, painful, and amazing Stefan's descent into villainy was. After Season 2's cliffhanger, I truly thought he'd be bad for about two episodes and the show would move on to another plotline. There was a precedent for this: His Season 1 addiction issues went away right quick. And, you know...

This hinges on a love triangle! How could it make the dashing romantic lead truly despicable? Well, this show went there. Not only was Stefan reprehensible for most of Season 3, but in a weird way he was WAY more fun. Seriously:

It was clear the show would be getting a lot of mileage out of his return to normalcy, but I suspect the writers were having SO MUCH FUN writing Stefan as a murderous badass that, way too late in the season, they were like, "Oh no, we've only got four episodes to turn him good now!" That transition wasn't nearly as fun, but, you know, points for trying.



2. Tyler Comes Out to His Mom


Shortly before Season 3 began, I explicitly asked Julie Plec why an ensemble cast of this size hadn't yet introduced a gay character. (It's basically my job to be annoying, guys!) We all know she did sorta introduce a gay character this season (ugh, don't get me started) but her main answer was that this show is frequently about the gay experience even if there aren't gay characters. And boy, that was never truer than in this small but, to me, extraordinary moment between Tyler and his mother.

Okay, putting aside my ridiculous theory that one of these actors MIGHT be in love with the other, what we got was a scene where a son bravely showed his powerful, slightly bigoted mother just who he really is. And then, with almost no hesitation, she accepted him. Good stuff, Ms. Plec. I apologize for hasslin' you.



3. The Motel Room Incident


Okay, I ain't no 'shipper. But I do have eyes and a beating heart and so this sequence was just goooood! While TVD has given us plenty of scenes that established Elena's love for Stefan over and over and over again, her somewhat flirtation with Damon hadn't really been explored. Sure, he kissed her that one time and she often looked indecisive when confronted with his feelings, but if you ever thought anything REAL was happening between Elena and Damon, then you'd let your imagination run away with you. That is, until THIS moment, when Elena (understandably) let her horniness get the better of her. She IS 18 after all!

Get it, Elena!



4. Klaus and Caroline


I mean, come on. This plotline was just great. For one thing, I love when a villain gets reformed and so Klaus's interactions with Caroline went a long way toward humanizing him.

In my opinion this plotline is widely misinterpreted as romantic; I found it much bigger and deeper than a simple love story. First of all, it's only romantic if you're assuming Klaus wants a girlfriend. I think it's more about what Klaus sees in Caroline (kindness, humanity) and how he wants to be around THAT for the rest of eternity rather than an interchangeable army of useless hybrids (or a former friend who doesn't love him back!). In exchange, he can offer Caroline a life OUTSIDE of Mystic Falls. Because let's be honest, it's kind of hilarious to think immortal monsters-slash-superheroes are going to want to finish their high school educations and remain in a tiny, terrible town. If any of you have ever been a teenager who dreamed of escaping your hometown, Klaus's offer probably resonated. I'm slightly disappointed that there wasn't more of a payoff here; Caroline remained pretty into Tyler, despite him not being the best boyfriend—'member when he Vervained her at Homecoming? But at least the season-ending reveal that Klaus now lives in Tyler's body will create an interesting wrinkle for Season 4. That's something.



5. The Phone Call


If I have one major complaint about this show—and it's a complaint that's sort of a compliment, really—it's that it often moves too fast for any real sense of longing or subtlety. But this scene took the time to stop everything and just let a moment play out, and man was it great.

Even though Stefan was so far gone into Ripperdom that he couldn't bring himself to speak to Elena, just hearing her voice provided enough of a tether to hold on to. His descent into darkness was far from over, but this scene gave all Stefan fans hope that deep down he was still the boring old romantic hero they'd fallen in love with.



6. The Return of Old Favorites


Although this next highlight could ALSO be deemed one of this season's flaws in that it completely removed the high-stakes finality of death itself, as a viewer there are few things more joyful than getting to see old favorites again. Even a brief and suitably useless cameo from Jenna in the finale gave me chills. Jenna! Anyway, because Jeremy had died, he could now see ghosts. And so could Matt, right? But not Elena or Alaric? Don't ask me. So that's why this season was really "The Season of the Originals (Plus Ghosts!)."

I know this was a flashback, but it still counted:

I mean, even the TOMB VAMPIRES got to come back! Loved how Caroline just HANDLED them:

But, I'm sorry, one of my favorite moments of the entire season was this part:

(FYI, no captions = I'm crying.)



NEXT: Sheriff Forbes' Redemption, Detective Katherine, and Rebekah's Awesomeness

<< Go back to Page 1



7. Caroline's Rescue


Let's not talk about how much I hated the Bill Forbes stuff. Because BOY, did I. It was unfocused (sunlight and torture fixes vampires? What about magic and/or science, you a-hole?) and sickening in its message (gays are villains too? Good thing we leap-frogged that whole normal-representation thing and gays are back to being TV villains again!). Whoops, I'm ranting. Sorry, guys, this is supposed to be about highlights! Moving on... The culmination of this otherwise troubling plotline was the redemption of a previously useless character: Sheriff Forbes!

Sheriff Forbes and Tyler's team-up was just straight-up satisfying. And touching! Maybe I'm just a sucker for when characters scoop up other characters into their arms and carry them away. But still: You treat Caroline well and I'll like you.



8. This:




9. Rebekah the High School Student


Rebekah is a great character. Just a straight-up great character. From her introduction as Stefan's '20s-era love interest to her surprisingly fluid motivations, she too became just as essential to the season as Klaus was. But the thing I loved most about her (aside from Claire Holt's terrific performance) was just how teenage she was. Who could've guessed that a 1,000-year-old vampire would be a better high school student than the actual high school students?

I mean, like most teens she spent a lot of time sleeping:

She had her heart broken repeatedly:

She made friends and enemies on the regular:

She put her trust in untrustworthy people:

She liked to get her swerve on:

And she was completely susceptible to developing school-girl crushes on the boy next door:

Not to mention the fact that out of all the characters SHE was the one who was most into attending high school and getting involved in its extracurriculars. Planning school dances, going out for cheer, enjoying the school bonfire, brown-nosing her history teacher. Seriously, Rebekah's devotion to her teenage years was so touching that it made me forgive her occasionally murderous ways as just being normal teenage mood-swings. Throughout the season both she and Klaus were revealed to be supremely lonely, sensitive people, and I was pretty instantly hooked on them. SO GLAD she wasn't killed off (I seriously thought she would be), and I can't wait to see what she'll get up to in Season 4. Prom, hopefully!



10. Detective Katherine


Speaking of Originals, Katherine is the original awesome lady character on this show. Although she disappeared for most of the season (another reason why the second half of the season wasn't as fun?) her presence was FELT whenever she did appear. She's consistently been motivated by self-preservation, but Season 3 showed that she also dabbles in detective work!

I mean, that wig was pretty killer. But her surprise involvement in Damon's Homecoming scheme to kill Klaus was one of the best reveals TVD has pulled off yet:

This episode then concluded with Katherine doing something SO uncharacteristic and awesome: She gave Stefan good advice about life! Honestly, it's saying something when Katherine is the voice of reason in Mystic Falls, so in my opinion she cannot return fast enough.



11. Klaus and Stefan's Romance Bromance


I mean. I don't know. I am 100 percent reading a little too much into these scenes. Or am I? Klaus was DEFINITELY in love with Stefan, it's just a matter of what kind of love? Either way, it was downright touching to see how devoted to Stefan he was. Who would've imagined that the biggest motivation for Klaus ensnaring Stefan into his schemes was Klaus's simple need for a bro-friend?

Season 3 walked the line between presenting Klaus as an irredeemable villain and also a tragic, relatable dude. Few things humanized him more than the fact that he loved his friend more than the friend loved him back. We've all been there, right? (Though with less murder, hopefully.)



12. The Mystic Fall High School Fruitopia Machine


I mean, I know time doesn't pass at the same rate in Mystic Falls, but could it actually be 1994 there still?



13. Alaric's Issues


I do have some nitpicks with the Evilaric plotline, specifically how uncreative the explanation for his condition was. Why bother making him another original vampire? Couldn't we have been introduced to a supernatural creature of a different kind? Like, maybe vampire hunters have supernatural origins and can become endowed with super strength to kill vampires? I felt like this show flirted with the idea of otherness when Mikael woke up craving the blood of vampires, but I don't know. I just didn't really get it. Especially when Esther claimed that she'd pep-talked Alaric into having a split personality. What? Anyway, the "highlight" aspect of this plotline was how elaborate and ambitious a method it was to kill off Alaric. Obviously a decision had been made that his time was up and the writers wanted something suitably epic to accomplish that. And they did! Because wow, the seeds for his psychosis had been planted a long time in advance and the reveal was both surprising and shocking.

Then, when it came time to die, it was touching how everyone united to bid farewell:

Alaric's death was ultimately pretty sad. But then TVD just had to go and end things on an awesome note:

Exciting stuff! Muddled explanation, but why complain when it WORKED? Alaric was a scary villain all of the sudden!



NEXT: The Incident on Wickery Bridge, Teen Sexin', and Bromances

<< Go back to Page 2



14. The Wickery Bridge Incident


Another reason why "Our Town" was probably my favorite episode of the season: Not only did it have that Klaus-Caroline scene, this scene was just remarkable. A truly painful moment for Elena and an unforgivable one for Stefan, his attempt to bluff Klaus by threatening to turn Elena into a vampire WHILE ALSO forcing her to relive her parents' deaths was some powerful stuff. That's why, when the show was bending over backward to redeem Stefan in Elena's eyes, I mostly didn't buy it because THIS was still fresh in my memory:

Did Stefan ever actually apologize for this incident? Like an actual, explicit apology? JUST ASKING.



15. Elena's Painting Skills




16. Caroline and Tyler's Sex Life


Because this show is so mired in dark themes and ultraviolence, I truly appreciated the counter-balance of some good, old-fashioned teenage sexin'!



17. Matt and Jeremy's Bromance


It's hard being a human being in Mystic Falls—not only do you stand a big chance of getting brutally murdered, the writers don't really know what to do with you most of the time. Fortunately they found a pretty charming recurring element for Jeremy and Matt: Making them co-workers! Honestly, sometimes a show lives and dies by the strength of its bromances and TVD really stepped it up this season. As both Jeremy and Matt dealt with some heady, ghost-related issues, it was nice to see that these two could bond over something other than, I don't know, preacher curls?

The latter half of the season sent Jeremy away and had Matt more focused on Elena's problems, but here's to hoping these two kids will get to spend some more quality time together in Season 4.



18. The Soccer Ball Incident


I mean...

Oh, Klaus! Now THAT is how you bust down a front door! With a one-pound inflatable ball! I love that Klaus was originally introduced as this brilliant mastermind who'd spent years forming a scheme and enlisting powerful witches, body-switch spells, and the like while also remaining ten steps ahead of everyone. But by the end he was just some bratty vampire kicking soccer balls at houses and throwing tantrums in front yards. We've all been there, Klaus. As children.



19. Drownin' Around


As I said in my recap of the finale, you could probably score ANY footage with a Sigur Ros song and it would be resplendent. But if you're going to do it, it might as well be to a scene as haunting, beautiful, and emotional as this one in which Elena's present-day underwater trauma was intercut with her memory of losing her parents in a similar fashion:

Don't get me wrong, the scene verged on comical in how long Elena was able to hold her breath while meaningfully interacting with other characters and not unbuckling her seatbelt, but still: DANG. She drowned. (And Stefan LET her drown, which is another story.) TVD knows how to do beautiful death scenes, and this one ranked right up toward the top of the list.



20. Caroline and Damon's Brawl


This was just a brief, throwaway moment, but it was about as crowd-pleasing as this show gets:

Go Caroline! And credit where credit's due: Let it be noted that Damon clearly wasn't giving it his all, as ANY GENTLEMAN wouldn't when it comes to laying a hand on our sweet angel.



21. Wigs!


A season of The Vampire Diaries can rightfully be judged by certain elements: Romances, deaths, twists, and SILLY WIGS. In that category alone this season really brought its A-game.



22. The Horror!


Another thing TVD tends to do well (when it's in the mood) is spin tension and dread from very simple horror scenarios. Seriously, this show can be scary sometimes! My favorite horror-movie moments in Season 3 definitely involved the Mystic Falls slasher, both before we knew who he was...

...and after.



23. Elena's Brief Foray Into Independence


A good (albeit temporary) side effect of Stefan's descent into darkness was Elena's brief attempt to not be co-dependent on a Salvatore. At one point Alaric even trained her to physically FIGHT off Stefan if need be.

It was the first time in a long time where I actually sympathized with Elena and felt like she had her head on straight. No more suicidal martyrdom or over-reliance on the dudes in her life: She was taking care of business. That's unfortunately why I ended the season so down on her: The split-second that Stefan seemed to be coming around, she dropped this spirit like a hot potato and went right back into her mass murderer-enabling ways. Oh, Elena. I hope the vampire version of you is much cooler.



24. The Ballroom Dance


I love when The Vampire Diaries gets theatrical and "Dangerous Liaisons" was basically operatic. Put people in black-tie formal and choreograph a waltz and I'm happy every time.

But what I especially loved about this dance was how it distilled each character relationship as it was:

Just a good, crowd-pleasing scene that enhanced the various romantic longings of each character. Jane Austen, eat your heart out. (No wait, that would be horrifying, nobody should do that.)



25. The End


Despite the slightly underwhelming storytelling of the last stretch of episodes, there's one thing few of us can disagree on: Season 3 ended AMAZINGLY.

Honestly, what a shock: Elena DIED and may now become a vampire! If we are to take this turn of events at face value, how much does it throw the entire premise of the show off the rails? Will Elena's personality get a makeover like Caroline's did? Will the two Salvatores still be as attracted to another vampire as they were to a human being? (I kinda thought that was the main attraction for them.) Is Katherine suddenly redundant? Lotta questions, you guys. And THAT'S what defines a good cliffhanger. Again, I have no idea what the writers have in store for us, so it's guaranteed to be surprising. And that's all I ask for, really. Surprise!


Best season yet. Slightly top-heavy, quality-wise, but that's not really anything to complain about. It's an exciting time to be a Vampire Diaries, fan seeing as each season has improved on the last. Just to be safe, we should probably do some expectations-adjustment before Season 4, but still: I'm excited.

Now let's hit up the waterslide park! Put on your ballgown and your silliest wig and meet me at the wave pool!

Hey everyone, I just thought I'd let you all know that I spent the last two days catching up on Teen Wolf and you were right! It's totally awesome! Granted, not all of the actors and actresses are top-notch or anything, but it's a great show nonetheless. Thanks to whomever strongly recommended it to me (I believe it was Montana or Meftihe or someone I don't really remember). Can't wait for Sunday now, not only because of the re-watch, but because of the Season 2 premiere of TW as well. Oof

I actually didn't like how Caroline, being a vampire of less than ONE year, totally manhandled those tomb vampires. That was ridiculously cheap. Also, she sorta manhandled Damon once, too, when he was trying to kill her dad. I know this show doesn't respect any of its vaguely defined "rules," but I mean c'mon! Supposedly, the older a vampire is the stronger it gets. Since Damon has been a vampire for 160 years compared to Caroline's 1, he should presumably be 160 TIMES stronger than her. And I'm sorry but I don't think anger is sufficient enough to best someone who's 160x stronger than you are. Or does somebody disagree?

They have shown several times in the show like when Damon attacks Kol in episode 14 that its also the anger element...of course if your angrier your gonna be putting in more effort...Caroline's words "well I'm angrier"

Just because they get stronger doesn't mean it's 160x stronger. Maybe it's incrementally stronger, more like 1 yr old vampire benches 600 lbs, 2 yr 601, 3 yr 602, 160 yr 759 lbs.



As far as the tomb vampires go, I don't remember the background. Were they new vampires before they were entombed? How much had they ever fed and on what? rat-Stefan is proof that diet counts when it comes to strength.

LOL old person? I'm offended :P I guess I didn't think semantics could apply to "badass" but then again I'm wrong a lot too. Anyway, I guess my definition of badass is much more traditional ya know? Like when Elijah tore up all those werewolves when they had Damon chained up LOL that was classic. And now THAT was what I consider to be badass. Do you feel my flow?
Flag
Sorry to disagree with you, old person, butI think you and I define "badass" differently. Caroline is her own version of badass.

No. Caroline is great! She's empathetic and sweet, sometimes neurotic but in a charming way. We all love Caroline; but, one thing she is NOT is badass. Sorry kiddo. Hate to rain on y'all's parade here but it's true.

I'm gonna make a movie where the attractive leads flirt, use dark magic, write love poems, blow shit up, rescue a puppy, go on a sappy date, take down an evil dictator, meet each others parents, and have a high speed car chase (with sharks!), all while dealing with their adorkable friends interfering in their lives, during an acid rain lightening-storm that has fairy dust and rainbows.

Just so no one knows how to categorize it. Best. Movie. Ever.

Uh, sorry, I missed "He's Just Not That Into You". Also the book, the cast announcements, the trailers, the commercials, the reviews and everything else about it. Funny, the movies I go to to watch stuff blow up and people die tend not to advertise RomComs.

My bad...did that get a little to ethnic for you all? ; ) LOL!

I guess I should applaude myself for causing an entire confusing coversation based on a relatively obscure pop culture reference. I'll stick to 90's culture...that seems to be universal. : ) It's pretty much the black version of "He's Just Not that Into you" which started as a book and ended up as a romcom with the awesome Ginnifer Goodwin and gorgeous Bradley Cooper and...well you get the picture.

hah true, it was probably just to tease all the DE fans, they give us longing looks and romantic kisses but when it comes to the core "It's always gonna be Stefan"... poor us ;) I wish Damon would get over her and go be with someone awesome instead, like Rose they were perfect together! Miss her :(

LOL!



I think he does. Most of this season he's given her some serious WTF? faces...he's officially reached that age where he no longer looks up to the older sibling. For sure.
Flag
Well, he's taller, so.....no.
Flag
Does Jeremy know his sister is dumb or does he look up to her?
Flag
How did I miss this? Ummm...I think Price covered it. And I kinda don't know what else to put! Guys...I think I'm broken! LOL! Seriously Price pretty much covered all the highlights so maybe a few additions that haven't been covered per se:



1.I'm sorry but top season moments and no mention of Elijah?!!! Price you rascal! I'm a little disappointed in you! There were so many Elijah moments that were good. C'mon that stomp. I stared at that gif and laughed for a full fifteen minutes before carrying on with the rest of the recap. Who else can stomp a hole in the ground, grab a girl around the waist like a cartoon villian and not mess up his shoes in the process?! Only a badass like Elijah. Or how about the waking up of Elijah...I mean Klaus' expression alone when Elijah eyeballed him. LOL! Or the Original reunion before that damn Esther ruined it. Elijah was leading the pack against Klaus. Ohhh or Elena and Elijah's champagne thing...ugh. I wanted to legitimately throttle her for not giving him the head's up.



2. I love how some of the best moments of the show involve ELena in precarious positions or being injured or something...is that because the audience is vicariously living through whatever character is doing her "harm" at the time?! So yes...her getting tossed in the water by Damon...Awesome! Her being sped down wickery bridge by stefan? Brutal but Awesome! I kid...I don't hate Elena. I like her in that way that you have to like and feel a bit protective of the village idiot because...it's what good people do.



3. I'm a sucker for a a good bromance and the most interesting relationships to me are always the ones that aren't just romantic or go far beyond sexual tension. I like the deep stuff. Give me the bromances...the sibling relationships. The mentor/mentee stuff...so Damon and Stefan had nonstop great brother moments in the entire season and I loved it. Whether they were at a bar or in a car flipping a coin or talking over the telephone or chilling in the Salvatore mansion they had some really great conversations that highlighte that contrary to shippers everywhere the most pivotal relationship on this show is between the Salvatore brothers. So Damon giving Stefan advice on moderation in regards to his blood lust. Or Damon deliberately losing the coin toss when it came down to losing Abby...or their confessions that they both love the same girl. Or Damon basically stating that Stefan shouldn't have saved him....They had shining moments...especially Damon. (This season more than ever it was more in the forefront and apparent that he really is protective of and really loves his brother despite sarcastic barbs and impulsive actions that could imply otherwise).



4. Bonnie's shift in attitude. Now hold on...hear me out. Bonnie went from being hopeless to knowing that she's hopeless and at least being snarky about it. She, Matt, and Jeremy had a very similar " I'm sick of this shizz" thing and they all expressed it a few times. I liked that when she was being b!tchy this season....she had reason to be. I mean I thought she was going to smack the paleness out of Matt with that pool stunt (LOVED their friendship btw Matt had great friend moments with many this season...hate that they dropped most of them). Bonnie's being less and less reluctant to work with Damon...and at times agreeing with him over being bothered with Stefan...loved that. It made me feel like SOMEBODY was willing to hold Stefan accountable for the months he spent dangling off the deep end (of awesomess imo but still). That actual concern she showed for Damon when he was being tortured by Bex...sure she walked out the door...she's still Bonnie, but for once she actually seemed like she was concerned enough for him and given their relationship I liked the fact that she's making lemons with lemonade and realizing that regardless of how she feels about half the people in their circle...they're all in this together.I mean if you think about the subtlest of moments...Bonnie and Damon's relationship has improved. They'll probably never be friends but their allies and they sort of trust each other and it's been implied more this season than ever. I kind of liike that. Bonnie straight up shunning Elena after her mom's turning. elena came to console her and make it about herself and Bonnie wasn't having it...neither was Caroline. Loved that...it was so much better than Bonnie's self righteous bitchiness the last time she stopped speaking to Elena because of the vampire thing...she had legitimate reasons for being throughly pissed. Bonnie having the common sense to know that Elena sending Jeremy away was the worst idea ever! And those final moments when it appeared as though she might actually be taking a turn to the dark side...striking a deal with Klaus. I mean I know we complain about her. I know she is nothing more than a plot device and the ways in which they utilize her character and the entire thing with witches...dancing within the realms of straight up racism in so many ways. But in retrospect...Bonnie had some sparks of goodness in this season...if you think really...really...really hard and try to recall the few times we seen her on screen.

1. "Needs more Elijah." Is always a valid statement for all things TVD related.

2. Not so sure the ACP would (always) get classified as "good people."

3. THIS! I loved Damon's "call me if you cough up a lung." Very true to the character and a great statement of brotherly love, in it's own way.

4. Blah, blah, blah, Matt! Loved all of 'Tatoes friendships this season, and how he became the voice of reason/wisdom. Spending the whole summer fretting that his great stuff in S3 and then NOT seeing him after the underwater scene are a bad sign. Matty needs to stay human. Caroline is the heart of TVD, and Tatoes is the soul.

The best of Season Three has only 5 letters: KLAUS - credit to the writers (and the actor) for making him such a scary villain and still so very charming, with great b/romance moments with Stefan and some with Caroline.



My fav recap moments of the season were Klaus's drawings as re-interpreted by Price - superpriceless!!!
Reply

My top awesome season 3 moments:



1. The Birthday - Best moment - Stefan "playing darts" with Ray, and then that phone call at the end...its not about shipping any couple in particular, but this is what TVD does so well overall - their way of saying there is a light at the end of a dark tunnel.



2. The Hybrid - Elena being pushed into water - because that is 90% of the audience wish they could do to this girl sometimes. So thank you, Damon!



3. The End of The Affair - one of the best episodes TVD ever had! Really, and also the best flashback episode! Anyway, seeing Stefan making that guy drink his wife's blood and him being Klaus's friend? Well done TVD, now that was an OMFG moment!



4. Disturbing Behaviour - Stefan's torture. Simple because TVD knows how to balance out shirless scenes between the two Salvatores, one in every four episodes, lol!



5. The Reckoning - Another great episode! Best scene - Klaus shouting at Stefan "TURN IT OFF"....that gave me chills, Joseph Morgan's voice can either make you melt or freeze!



6. Smells Like Teen Spirit - Best moment - Damon being pissed that those girls Stefan left all around the house were ruining his carpets - how Bulgakov of the TVD!



7. Ghost World - Lexie torturing Stefan...a good friend in need is a good friend in deed!



8. Ordinary People - the wigs! LOLOLOL!



9. Homecoming - Katherine's Ka-BOOM! Girl, I miss ya!



10.The New Deal - Stefan and Damon's talk at the witch house and fight scene, I just love their "brotherly" moments!



11. Our Town - Stefan being really BAD! Driving Elena on that bridge was really an incredible moment (btw, Price, he has apologized for it in The Ties That Bind, he told Elena he crossed the line when he tried to ride her off that bridge). AND Klaus and Caroline - WHO SAW THAT SHIP COMING?



12. The Ties That Bind - Stefan hitting Damon, its time these two get real about their love life situation....BUT a close second if the revelation that Damon undaggered Elijah - a.k.a THE BEST ORIGINAL ON THIS SHOW!



13. Bringing Out The Dead - that dinner table scene with the Original brothers vs. the Salvatores...Magic!



14. Dangerous Liaisons - Stefan snapping Damon's neck...cos come on, even Damon did not see that coming!



15. All My Children - Rebekah spilling gasoline on Elena - oh how many viewers would want to be Rebekah at that moment....and light that match at her..,



16. 1912 - that woman's head rolling off after 1912's Stefan drained her completely...I got chills!



17. Break On Through - Lets Go Kill Some Originals - TVD has its best moments usually around 8:59 pm



18. The Murder Of One - Sage dying...after Finn was staked...hello, bloodline storyline!



19. Heart of Darkness - Kol beating up Damon with a bat ....twice!



20. Do Not Go Gentle - THE FACT THAT NO ONE FOUND THAT SALT ON THE GROUND SUSPICIOUS



21. Before Sunset - Klaus trying to break into the house!



22. The Departed - Ok, I'll be very girly here; SE got a kiss and an ILU, DE got a flashback, we all got something out of the finale, so win-win!

If it hasn't already been mentioned, a theory on why Jeremy and Matt can see ghosts but not Elana and Alaric.



Matt and Jeremy both died natural deaths. Though Jeremy was revived/resurrected through magic, his death was completely natural...for as natural as a bullet is anyway



Being the doppelganger, a supernatural creature, it kinda makes sense that "human rules" might not apply to Elana. And as best I can recall, Alaric never died without his ring



It would of course be nice if the writers filled us in on the official rules of ghost seeing...but until then, this is the theory I'm going with. Until somebody points out that I've remembered/missed some crucial detail :)

well if its nothing like the book then thats a shame because it means it copies Buffy the vampire slayer. The book came out before Buffy so I thought maybe VD was original but I guess not. I still love this show although I've seen all of this happen in buffy. The only thing Buffy never did and I guess VD did follow from the book, is Elana turning into a vampire. That's cool and a real gamechanger!

I have to agree with MeftihePhoen. There are a ton of vampire teen-series books out there. Yes, Buffy, Vampire Diaries, Vampire Academy, Vampire Queen, and even Twilight. Vampire Diaries the book and tv show, are nothing alike. Vampire Diaries and Buffy are nothing alike. Buffy the show and Buffy the movie are similar, and I too have seen every Buffy episode aired. One Vampire show based on a book, does not equal another.
Reply

Oh, and I love Buffy and I love Vampire Diaries (show only).

That is the craziest conclusion I've ever seen anyone draw. It's not based on books that predate a vampire show you like so it must be based on the vampire show you like? We can draw similarities between Buffy and anything vampire related all day, but your logic is heavily flawed here.
Reply

No its flawed. If the books were the same as the VD show then I would think Buffy copied from the VD books. That is logic, it can't work the other way round.

Also, sometimes it's a GOOD thing that a tv show is nothing like it's inspiration material. If you think about it Buffy (which I LOVE) was Joss' second chance at the concept from one of the worst movies ever.

1. For me, this season had more low points than high points and I say this as a big fan of the show (or a fan of what this show was or could be tbh) lol.

2. The best scene in the whole season was that Stefan-Elena phonecall. That was the ONE thing that looked genuine and not forced. Mad props to Paul Wesley!

From that point onwards, the season went downhill.

3. When I go and look back at the whole season, what has really happened? What storyline really finished? What was the main point of the season? Killing Klaus? LOL. Joseph is listed as a regular from now on, so we wasted two seasons on nothing? They at least better give up on killing Klaus because there's only so many WE FOUND A WAY TO KILL HIM LOL JK episodes I can take.

4. Season 3 was almost a universal directionless mess. It's like they forgot that they needed a conflict and a threat, and an endpoint, and just kept running around and around in circles with the 'oh lets kill the originals...cuz' bullshit and then it was mama original that was the bad guy, and then no one was the badguy, and then it was just 99% love triangle bullshit and relationship bullshit. Like literally, that's all the show was, just new ships and old ships and ships shipping. And then they were like 'oh shit we need a conflict' and then threw in Ghost Coco at the last minute to create tension for a finale that was ultimately just about, once again, the love triangle.

It's a bad soap opera, whereas it used to be a compelling story with soap-opera-ish elements. There's a huge difference.

5. Also wtf Price? You say that Tyler is a bad boyfriend because he vervained Caroline TO SAVE HER and yet want her to be with Klaus who tried to kill her 2 times already and tried to kill her friends on multiple occasions? That is making me sad. Plus he will be in Tyler's body now so that's even GROSSER.

Klaus is a lame bad guy. Katherine was 100 times scarier than him.

6. Speaking of Katherine...I liked that revelation too! But what didn't make sense is that Klaus didn't know she wasn't human. Vampires and hybrids can smell a human. He didn't suspect a thing. OH WAIT no, he's just dumb, I said it before, he couldn't smell Elena who was basically in the same room as him. But I like him anyway. He's too ridiculous to be unlikable.

7. The way Bonnie is treated is really making it obvious that Julie Plec doesn't like her...AT ALL.

8. Esther didn't make sense. Nothing she said made sense. Sage didn't make sense also. Actually there are too many things that didn't make sense in this season.

9. I think you forgot one highlight: ELIJAH'S PRESENCE.

10. Rebekah/Damon stuff was the highlight though!

11. AND THE BIGGEST LOW POINT OF THE SEASON: DAMON'S TOTAL RETCON IN THE FINALE.

about the caroline and tyler...well there will always be the s2 incident when the werewolves locked her in a cage and tyler helped... plus let's not forget that at some point in s2 tyler was on the "let's kill elena" team... don't get me wrong, i am on that team as well...but i didn't knew elena for like all my life... not to mention that in s1 tyler was just a douche with anger management problems...
Reply

Caroline and Tyler became better people together. It's like they evolved together. And about that incident in the woods, I know, he was dumb, but it turned out Caroline lied to him, which led to a question "what else has she lied about?" He found out Caroline's friends killed his uncle. He didn't help Jules to lock her in the cage. The thing he did wrong is that he stood there while Caroline was fighting with Jules (after he had rescued her from the cage) but he stood there because he didn't know who to trust. He deeply regretted it afterwards though, same goes for Elena. That isn't an excuse but at least he did regret it. He made mistakes yes, but Caroline did also. In season 1, Tyler was a douche with anger management problems because the curse was making him like that.

Caroline was just a bitch. Especially to Elena.

Whole season 1 Tyler struggled with anger issues and then when he started transitioning in season 2 it came to the surface even more but then he learned how to control it and it was all good again. Until Klaus killed him as an experiment in front of Caroline. Even then he was fighting it and trying to be a better man for Caroline, even though everything that has happened from that point onwards was Klaus's fault and not his.

Klaus's deeds are fucking INCOMPARABLE to what Tyler did. I am just saying that if she has to choose between Tyler and Klaus, Tyler is a much better and reasonable choice for her. Plus, she seems like she truly loves him. And he's better looking LBR. Joseph's lips can only do so much... And now Klaus will go beeeyonddddd every fucking line with his creepiness inside Tyler. He will take advantage of Caroline and enjoy it

Awesome post, very detailed! It's a nice summary! Well, awesome except...I am appalled that you put Daddy Forbes in the same category with the Queens of Bore Abby and Sage. *shakes head* At least he was interesting with the torture and all! #TeamBill So I'm biased and my favorite moment was where Caroline and Bill bonded, cried and hugged. Anything Klaus/Caroline was cringeworthy. I hated it. HalfNaked!Tyler scenes were always among the highlights of this season. I'm a sucker for Damon/Elena/Stefan (yes, shoot me) even though I bitched a lot about Elena, I enjoyed their scenes more than I should. OMG the ending. I really wasn't expecting Elena to die this season. I still liked Jeremy and I missed him while he was away, being besties with Kol. The possibility of Bonnie going dark next season is making me excited. But overall, I still think season 2 was better than this season.

Reading your list and feeling as though the Stefan turn back to good was very fast makes me want to go back and watch the season to see of there is something we missed. It just doesn't make sense to have turned him that quickly, there were all little glimpses of humane Stefan through out the whole time, but there has to be something. I liked his storyline and I think Paul played it very well. He made me hate him but still love him. As far as he incident on wickery bridge which yes was unforgivable if you believed he would really kill her. I never believed he would have actually done it. There are so many great moments. I can't wait for the DVDs!
