First Look: Vampire Diaries Channels The Breakfast Club! Plus, Damon Coaches Jeremy

The Vampire Diaries will actually be spending some time at school in the Jan. 17 episode (The CW, 8/7c) when several of the characters find themselves sequestered a la The Breakfast Club, and we’ve got a sneak peek at the detention session.

“It has a lot to do with what Rebekah’s up to,” executive producer Julie Plec previously told TVLine. “She’s been gone for quite some time. She’s missed a lot.” Her attempt to get info out of the gang about the latest cure intel and other goings-on in Mystic Falls will take “the form of a pretty malicious detention at school.”

Meanwhile, newbie hunter Jeremy finds “an unlikely coach in the form of Damon Salvatore. So there’s some fun to be had there and a lot of danger for both of them.” But first, Jer’s going to have to complete the vampire training program — in wifebeaters, of course!

    I love Claire Holt, She is a wonderful actress glad to see her again :)

    Rebekah wants Tyler bad….

    As much as I love The Breakfast Club… It’s WAY overdone.

    • Lincoln says:

      Overdone? I don’t know a recent series that’s done something like this already. As a matter of fact, has this ever been done before? I think this will be cool.

      • Lori says:

        You have to go way back, but Dawson’s Creek did a Breakfast Club-themed ep.

        • Charlie says:

          Don’t judge me for knowing this… But the kids show Victorious did a Breakfast Club episode. And, back in the day, Lizzie McGuire did an episode as well. Plus, it’s referenced all the time… Like in the recent movie Pitch Perfect. That’s kind of what I meant by it being overdone. Classic, yes. But still. I don’t know how I feel about TVD doing one.

          • cc says:

            Not judging, I’ve seen all of those incarnations, and while it’s my daughter’s show, I thought the Victorious incarnation was hilarious!

      • snowballx350 says:

        Teen Wolf did this scene summer 2012…

  4. Ashley says:

    There are just so many things wrong with the sentence “Jeremy finds “an unlikely coach in the form of Damon Salvatore.”. Here’s hoping that, even though it won’t stick, Jeremy gets a good stab into Damon.

  5. Martin says:

    Now, if only Jeremy were to take off the wifebeaters, it would be perfect – Jeremy seriously got hot this season.

    Also, love Rebekah, really wish they would make Claire Holt a series regular. One of my favourite characters on the show.

  6. Vamp fan says:

    I was wondering if the producers would ever have them going back to school again. I forgot they were even supposed to be in high school. LOL

  7. dude says:

    Any episode anchored by Rebekah is a must see. Claire Holt can do no wrong, she’s one of the best actresses on television.

  8. J says:

    Ah, bless you for showing us Jeremy’s arms again.

  9. Josh says:

    Ah it’s just like the breakfast club but instead of finding out about themselves, they’ll mostly find about which vampire they want to make out with this week…at least Elena will. Lord knows she won’t develop as a character anymore. She’s more of a plot device.

  10. snowballx350 says:

    Stealing ideas from Teen Wolf? Seriously, Vampire Diaries.

    • soundscene says:

      Can you steal the idea of stealing a plot device from a 27-year-old movie? If so, then Teen Wolf stole the idea from Dawson’s Creek.

    • Hyde says:

      And where did “Teen Wolf” get it??? Uh… THE MOVIE, “The Breakfast Club”… Everyone steals ideas and makes them their own, been done since the beginning of time… Let’s not forget that “Teen Wolf” was done before as a movie in the 80’s. Sounds to me like TW is a bigger copycat than TVD in every aspect.

    • tigersmurfette says:

      also, if you want to quibble, stealing episode titles from supernatural. they already had an afterschool special. nothing is original in hollywood.

    STEBEKKAH!!!!can’t wait.I hope stefan forgets about Elena for a while!!am so happy..also bonnie/jeremy is returning..And to those DELENA fans that feel that stefan shouldn’t be mad at elena for sleeping with his brothers 72hrs after thet breakup should rest..if I were stefan I would be pissed as hell.

  12. @Charlie – This isn’t overdoing the breakfast club at fact, it isn’t even channeling the breakfast club. It’s just something to say about the episode. Maybe there will be a few subtle (or even blatant) references, but it’s not like they’re making the detention set like the set from TBC and they aren’t recreating the movie as a TVD episode. it’s just a similar setting in the most basic of ways. @ruby – Stefan shouldn’t be mad at Elena for sleeping with Damon 72 hours after the breakup. She was sired and would do anything to please Damon. As they so often say in this show, “everything is heightened.” So as a vampire, her desire for him was already heightened, and then it’s heightened even more by the sire bond..thus removing her inhibitions. Stefan can pummel Damon over it all he wants, but he shouldn’t take it out on Elena. That was a long comment. sorry everyone lol
