Vampire Diaries @ Comic-Con: Stakes Are High, So Get Ready for Explosive Consequences

Love — be it newfound, or (kinda) fatally lost — doesn’t come easy for the pretty people of Mystic Falls. That was resoundingly confirmed when The Vampire Diaries‘ cast and executive producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec took the stage at the San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday evening. Here’s a taste of what The CW’s sexy series has in the works for Season 3.

Team Damon or Stefan? | “Katherine said to Elena at the end of the season, ‘It’s OK to love both of them.’ And we’ll just see what that means,” Williamson previewed. As for a potential “Delena” romance, he cautioned, “There are too may things in the way for them to just run into each other’s arms right away.” What’s more, when Damon attempts to make sense of the whole missing brother/loving Elena situation, “It explodes in his face.”

Bad Boy, Bad Boy… Whatcha Gonna Do? | Now that Stefan is on the lam with Klaus — and carrying a thirst for human blood, no less — portrayer Paul Wesley promises that “the whole ‘Ripper Stefan’ thing will be fascinating. He needed to be multi-dimensional, and that is fun to play.”

Mr. Sunshine | When prodded about Elijah’s future in Mystic Falls, Plec responded playfully, “Oh, there is no joy in the world if Daniel Gilles isn’t on this show.” So, there you have it: Klaus’ bro will be around again.

Ghosts Whisperer | When Bonnie brought Jeremy back from the dead last season, he returned with some tag-alongs in the form of Vicki and Anna. “This is not just a supernatural consequence; it’s an emotional consequence,” Plec explained. “Not only are we going to be able to tell a cool and creepy ghost story, but a tough emotional story as well.”

Puppy Love | When Season 3 kicks off, “We’ll see if [Tyler and Caroline’s] friendship has blossomed,” Accola teases.

No More Double Trouble? | So, where the heck is Katherine after skipping town in the Season 2 finale? “She’s in Hawaii, waiting for the very special Hawaii vacation episode,” Plec joked.

Justin Bieber, Do Not Call Your Agent | When asked if they’ll ever nab up any very big “names” to stop by Mystic Falls, Williamson explained, “Stunt casting is not something that we excel at. I like to write characters and find the right actor for the role. Casting a [super]star does not interest me.” One actor who did land on the show’s radar, though, is Heroes alum Jack Coleman, who will be popping up this season as a Mystic Falls native with a hardline POV on bloodsuckers.

    Thanks Kevin and Julie for revealing absolutely nothing. :/

  2. Sarahliz says:

    I LOVE Jack Coleman!!!! So excited that he’ll be joining!

  3. Guess says:

    It seems I’ve been waiting for Tyler and Caroline to become an item forever: When WILL we have a werewolf/vampire romance on this show?!

    And on that note, does these “emotional consequences” for Jeremy means that Bonnie & Damon will finally share scenes again? I get we can’t have them as couple as long as Elena is in the way but the Sookie/Eric thing between Bonnie & Damon are one of the greatest things of The Vampire Diaries yet they barely share a text message onscreen lately.

  4. Liz says:

    Yeah kinda of the same thing I have heard for a while now but I’m excited to hear that Elijah is coming back eventually. Klaus & Elijah are an earlier version of Damien and Stefen

  5. Jenny says:

    There are a few teasers, evev though its less than last year,I’m still very excited for Season 3. I really wished there were more info on the Caroline/Tyler (vampire/werewold)relartionship though. Candice Accola’s teaser is driving me crazy!

  6. Sivat says:

    They are making a mistake by not putting Tyler and Jeremy together. They have smokin’ hot chemistry.

    • Z says:

      But neither of them are gay. And I can’t imagine them doing that to Tyler ON TOP of making him a werewolf. Dude can only handle so much.

      A friendship is okay, but I wish some people would stop trying to force a Tyler/Jeremy romantic pairing. That was NEVER the intention.

      Besides, if it wasn’t for Tyler/Caroline, I wouldn’t even be watching the show right now.

      • Sivat says:

        People often discover they are gay after being in opposite-sex relationships.

        Doesn’t matter if it wasn’t the “intention”. On Veronica Mars, it was never the “intention” for Veronica and Logan to get together, but their chemistry made it so. Same with Tyler and Jeremy—their chemistry is off the charts.

        Caroline is the most annoying character not just on TVD but on ALL of television. She must die.

        By the way, your post is all kinds of homophobic. You need to get some help for that.

      • TVD fan says:

        Neither would I: Tyler & Caroline are the ONLY thing that’s keeping me from quit on this show

    • Kyle says:

      WHY has everyone to be gay¿ Tyler is a jock womanizer and his relationshio with Caroline is amazing… Truly, the only thing that would make me watch the show another season.

      PD: Teddy from 90210 doesn’t count.

  7. Samantha says:

    Eh Delena will probably never actually happen just like Eric/Sookie won’t on TB… If either do I’ll be completely surprised and even if they do they probably won’t last long.

    • TVD fan says:

      What are you talking about? Eric and Sooki are ALREADY happening and they have the exact same range and intensity of Bonnie and Damon with the romantic chemistry of Caroline and Tyer and the OTP vibe of Jeremy and Anna: there’s no way Elena could provide that for eithr Salvatore.

    • Ashley says:

      ??? LOL. Eric and Sookie have happened and have told each other they love each other. They had no closure to their relatioship. And if they even follow the very basic template of the books, which they have so far, they will be together again. Especially since they aren’t doing the one book/per season anymore.

  8. india says:

    Well, one thing is sure the fans are gonna love the bad ass Stephen…..i am already loving it…:)

  9. July says:

    Everything is Delena and nothing hurts
    and i will love Stephan bad ass !

  10. Deena says:

    Oh please, Bonnie and Damon will never be anything but maybe a five-second flash in the pan. If Damon can’t have Elena he’ll give up living. It’s that simple.
