The Vampire Diaries Season 3 Premier Recap

The Vampire Diaries Season Three Opening Recap.

Are you ready? This may be a long post.

Joseph Morgan. Did you hear that accent? Awesome! He is just so deliciously creepy. Speaking of, if I were that silly girl I would have started freaking out as soon as his accent went from "southern charmer" to "sexy Brit." But, no, she's all "I have a HUGE attitude because I'm from Florida, Jerk."

Good thing the other girl was smart enough to run. Too bad there was no where to go.

Stefan! Stefan, I have been waiting all Summer to see you again! Uh, Stefan? Why are you looking at me like that? You're SO Creepy.

It almost looks for a second like he might be nice Stefan . . . Ya know, until he starts chewing on that girls neck.

Elena. Poor Elena. Again (still?) she has to talk herself into getting out of bed and facing the day. This girl never gets a break.

Jeremy. Are Elena and Jeremy sharing a bedroom? Oh, no, it's just the strange editing. That was weird.

Wait, Jeremy works at the Grill now? I guess that's one way to get Matt into more scenes.

Caroline! I love her. Look at her, trying to pretend everything is normal. (It's so weird that Caroline is telling Elena to call her Mom for help. What?)

Aww, look who's still crashing at the Gilbert's house. Ric, don't you have your own place? Not that I mind. Actually, I think it's sweet that he's still there and I sort of think he should move in. Wouldn't that save everyone some money? (Also, really? He doesn't know how to work a coffee maker? Didn't he live alone before this? Or did he just skip the coffee and go straight to the bourbon?) Um, Ric, What is going on with your hair? Would you fix this, please?

It's sort of strange seeing Tyler back in Mystic Falls. (And Really, Caroline, really? After what he did to you, you're all chummy? I don't approve . . . I don't think.)

Andie Star, Action News! I'm not an Andie fan. I could do without her. I do sort of like that she told Damon to get his own champagne though.

Hello, Mr. Soapy (and all the strategically placed books and knick knacks.) May I just say that I Like Damon's hair. From what I've seen I'm in the minority but oh well.

I like that Damon is keeping track of Stefan, very brotherly.

Bonnie's one and only appearance in this episode is on a little tiny phone camera. You know what? I really didn't miss her.

Moving on.

Ghosts! I have no idea what the story with the ghosts is but I do like Kayla Ewell and Malese Jow are back. Especially Malese. I liked Anna.

Hi, Matt. Maybe he'll get to do something this season. He's so under used.

"Right?" Tyler cracks me up. His response there is just so "Come on, it doesn't HAVE To be crazy, please like me??"

It's Simon Camden! Why is little Simon Camden so scruffy faced and Why is he drinking??

I like (but I probably shouldn't) Klaus and Stefan's team work. Really creepy though. If Klaus wanted a wolf why didn't he just get Tyler? I mean, he was right there. (Or at least ask Tyler "nicely" where his or Jules' wolfy friends are.)

Damon and Alaric! My favorite TVD Crime Fighting Duo!

My word, Stefan is a messy, messy eater.

It's super creepy hearing Damon describe Stefan. Alaric's never going to be able to look at Stefan the same way again. He may never trust him again. Would you?

I love Caroline's line "Just because I tell you things doesn't mean you're allowed to know them."

Can you two just make out right now? Just toss those five bazillion red plastic cups off that table and have fun? Seriously. Then tension!

Look at Stefan, getting into the torture. This reminds me of someone . . . who is that . . . Was evil, then good and all broody and then, Bam! Deliciously evil again! Oh yeah! My Other favorite vampire! Angel.

Elena, darling, that dress? Really? Is that even a dress? I sort of like that she's getting ready, Damon is watching and she doesn't even react. No jumping, no eye rolling, she just comfortable around him. I think I would go so far as to say that, even though he annoys her often, she takes comfort in his presence.

Aww, Damon. I love the way he loves her.

I would like to take this opportunity to say this. The soundtrack on this show? A+++ Perfect.

Whoa. That's a lot of people. I bet they don't even know half the people at that party.

There's Jeremy, heading back to the world of drugs. Or is he? Really, he's just sitting there looking at the joint. Enter Matt, who grabs it and lights right up! Really, Matt? I thought you were the good boy.

"I am every parent's worst nightmare. I am the chaperone teacher from hell." Haha, Ric. Another one of my favorite lines.

I love that Elena just walks up and takes Damon's drink. (See? So comfy with him.) And that she does it right in front of her history teacher. Then she goes on to ask him to talk to her brother who's smoking? Girly, you're drinking! Who should talk to you?

Andie Star, Action News! This scene feels like a scene out of scream. I keep expecting to see Ghostface.

Stefan, Stefan, you're freaking me out again. Could you just smile and ask about Elena please? I miss you.

Uh oh, Damon, Elena found your closet of secrets. You're in trouble now.

"Hello, Brother." OK, I have to be honest, I maybe have squeed, out loud. That was too perfect.

Damon mentions Elena and there's no reaction from Stefan. No reaction? Stefan, what's the matter with you??

Stefan! You made Andie Star, Action News, stand on the edge of that scaffolding to scare Damon? It worked, he's a little freaked. Can you put her down now? Seriously, what's wrong with you? Klaus isn't here, you don't need to put on a show. You KNOW Andie Star, Action News! She's not some stranger. Put her down!

NO! NO! NO! Not like that! That's not what I meant! Stefan! Oh my word! You killed Andie Star, Action News!! Stefan! Where are you? I miss you! I mean, you're sexy and all like this but you're scaring the children! And me! Please come back!

Damon is scared. Damon is scared. Things can not be good when Damon is scared. Poor Damon. We all know he didn't love Andie Star, Action News but I'm sure he cared a little bit about her.

Another scene with Jeremy and Matt? I told you this was going to mean more screen time for poor, lonely Matt.

Oh, interesting, Vicki needs help. I wonder what kind of help she needs. Why doesn't Anna get to talk in this episode?

It's about time, Caroline and Tyler! Did I just say that? I'm still not sure I'm OK with Tyler but the chemistry is just too much. Too much!

Poor Damon, he doesn't even want Caroline's alcohol bottle. It's bad, people!

Here's Elena, just waiting to yell at Damon. Oh, honey, if you only knew what he was protecting you from.

Damon really laid it all out Elena there, didn't he? The only other thing I would have liked to see was a hug. Come on, Damon, she really could have used a hug there.

Matt and Jeremy again?? We get it! They're going to be new besties Maybe you could stop shoving it down our throats?

Matt, Matt, Matt, after finding out your girlfriend was a vampire and then running from werewolves, you really still have a problem believing in ghosts? Where do you live?

Klaus thinks Stefan still cares. Well, the look on his face does seem to say he still cares. But he just killed Andie Star, Action News!

 I'm sort of really upset with Alaric. Those "kids" have lost so much and he's just walking out on them. "You can do all this alone now." Really, Ric? That's sort of mean. I'm sure she CAN do it all alone but she shouldn't have too. How sad.

Uh, yeah, we get it. Caroline and Tyler getting freaky. That's enough now, please. Thanks.

Damon is just a mess. I'm sure he's just sure his baby brother is just gone. No hope, no help. Sadness.

Stefan, you look a little distressed. Could it be all that guilt? Oh, look at him, he needs a hug. (Too bad he'd probably chew you to bits if you tried to hug him.)

Elena, your phone is ringing! Pick it up! Pick it up! Oh, I was SURE she was going to miss that call.


Paul Wesley is absolutely AMAZING in this episode. He was all sexy. He freaked me out. He made me cry. "I love you, Stefan. Hold onto that."

Stefan is still in there somewhere. This is where it's different from Angel. Angel didn't care at all. Stefan does . . . Does that make him more scary or less scary?

I don't care. When he looks like he does when he's on the phone, I just don't care. Come back, Stefan!

Caroline, why didn't you just jump out the window or something? I know it's not very ladylike but it would have been faster.

Oh my word, Carol Lockwood, I HATE you! No one shoots my Caroline and gets away with it! I hope you get to spend some time with your Husband soon!

 The End.

Long post is long. Anyway, those are all my thoughts. I LOVED this episode as I love most episodes. Great opening to what I'm Sure will be a Great season!
