The Vampire Diaries: Season 3, Episode 1 :: The Birthday

Sep 16, 2011

It’s Elena’s 18th birthday and the focal point of the first episode of Season 3. Caroline decides to throw her best friend a party, but Elena is a bit distracted. If you remember from last season, Stefan is now evil again and has run off with Klaus. In fact, he is now called “the ripper”, based on his favorite way of killing people. Elena won’t believe this until she sees it with her own eyes so she heads off in an attempt to find him.

Birthday Bash

Always the protective one, Damon tries to hide the truth from Elena and distracts her with a special birthday present – her lost necklace from last season. He even offers to be her date to the big birthday bash. Unfortunately, Stefan decides to pay a visit to Mystic Falls in order to provoke his brother. Elena follows Damon to find Stefan and realizes that he really has changed.

Seeing Double

If you recall, after Bonnie brought Jeremy back to life he started to see the ghosts of old girlfriends. Overcome, Jeremy confides in Matt about this problem.  He is now working alongside Matt at the Mystic Grill. Since Matt is also upset about the Caroline and Tyler relationship, the two have similar struggles to deal with.

Vamp Love

In other news, Tyler and Caroline seem to have made no progress over the summer. They are still trying to figure out the logistics of a vampire dating a werewolf, with no easy solution. Although they have been hanging out all summer, they still aren’t official. Tyler’s mother is suspicious of Caroline and places a bit of vervain on her purse. When Caroline reacts to it she takes it as proof that she is a vampire and has the mayor shoot her in the back!
