The Vampire Diaries Season 3 Premiere: First Look!

by at . Comments

Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday to Elena... happy birthday to you!

On September 15, this Vampire Diaries character will turn 18 - on a season premiere aptly titled "The Birthday" - but it won't be a cause for celebration. Granted, Caroline will try to make it one, planning a party at the Salvatore mansion.

But the first photo from the episode doesn't make it look like Elena is having much fun. What might she be discussing with Alaric and Damon? Stefan's whereabouts, we're assuming...

It doesn't look like Damon's hold a drink... but it doesn't look like they're holding hands either, i can't tell!!! I think Bamon would be a creepy couple. go Delena :)


I am SUPER excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i'm sure i wont be disappointed. never have been =)


I DEFINATELY cannot wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
my brother and I are trying to predict what awaits us...
i'm sure I won't be disappointed - never have been ,


The arrival for the birthday episode is going to come out huge. I see that Elena isn't that very happy, probably because she hasn't seen Stefan for a while and hoping that he'll come to celebrate. We never know if Elena will get the frown upside down but if she ever wants to see Stefan again, she's got to convince Damon to go help him. I hope that the goodness of Stefan will come out later on in the season cause he's only being a monster under Klaus's control. I hope that he's dead with Katherine later on in the season because love will always triumph over evil. =) =O


grrrr why r there ppl all for bamon? its not gunna happen ppl, damon and bonnie dont have any spark, if there is something between them its hate, they r natural enemies, damons tried to kill bonnie in season 1, bonnie has come close to BBQing damon...theres no romance ever gunna happen, and in case u didnt know bonnies with jeremy! DELENA FTW!!!!!






Look i'm not celebrating, i'm not legal, i can't drink, my boyfriends a psycho and his brother is trying to look down my shirt. i'm yet to see the thrill in any of this.


@delena gilbertore they're not holding hands. he's holding a glass and she has her hand on her waist!


So we have to put up with another season of Damon and Elena. Bored already. BTW, I'm not Stelena/Elena/Forwood I am however a Bonnie fan. Why not have Bonnie who is the hottest girl on the show be with the hottest guy on the show, Damon. I want to see them get together. BAMON FTWWWWWWWWW
