the vampire diaries season 3 episode 9['The Vampire Diaries' -- 'Homecoming']

Oh my god. Excuse me, but those are the only three words that can come out of my mouth right now. After last week's twisty-turning episode, I didn't think 'The Vampire Diaries' could really get any better ... but it did. And it was awesome. So awesome that I still have a "witchy headache" trying to figure everything out.

But Delena fans rejoice! We got an almost kiss tonight! It looks like Elena is finally ready to let go of her ghost. Sorry Stefan, but there's always Katherine. After all, she did finally admit that she loves you -- and Damon. Now do you see how epic this episode is?

After some baiting from Stefan and Rebekah, Klaus returns to Mystic Falls ready to celebrate his father Mikael's death. There's only one catch: He's not dead. But Klaus already knew that. You see, what made 'Homecoming' such a great episode was the intense mental chess match between Klaus and Mikael. One was always one step ahead of the other.

the vampire diaries ordinary people ['The Vampire Diaries' -- 'Ordinary People']

I honestly can't remember the last time a single hour of television had so many twists and turns -- and made me feel so many different emotions -- than this week's episode of 'The Vampire Diaries.' And for a few minutes, I even started to sympathize with Klaus. That's right, those pesky 'TVD' writers made me feel bad for Klaus. Klaus?!

Did I mention that we finally learned how vampires came to be? But that wasn't it. We also uncovered some pretty big secrets. Mikael, the vampire vampire hunter, is actually Papa Klaus and one of the Originals. And Mama Klaus? In an exciting twist, it turns out that she was the Original witch, and she's the one responsible for turning her family into vampires -- and believe me, it wasn't pretty. Of course, this means that it's Original Esther Klaus who's on the other side trying to stir up trouble with Vicki.

See, I told you this episode was amazing. In fact, it just may rank as one of my favorite 'TVD' episodes ever.

EXCLUSIVE 'The Vampire Diaries' Behind the Scenes of 'Ordinary People': Rebekah's Flashback (PHOTOS)

'The Vampire Diaries' - Rebekah'The Vampire Diaries' is flashing back again! This time we're going back about 1,000 years to see Rebekah's past and the origins of her tumultuous relationships with her brothers Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies), whom we haven't seen since last season.

We've got some exclusive behind-the-scenes photos from tonight's episode, titled 'Ordinary People' (Thurs., Nov. 3, 8PM ET on The CW), that prove one thing: Rebekah (Claire Holt) sure does like to braid her hair.

This episode finds Rebekah revealing a few ancient secrets about the Original family. But will the revelations keep Rebekah from getting into an all-out brawl with Elena (Nina Dobrev)? There's some serious 'Mean Girls' stuff going on here, and we're sort of loving it.

Take a look at our behind-the-scenes photos (which include a horse and some kind of wolf-dog roaming around in the background) after the jump.

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 3, Episode 7 Recap

['The Vampire Diaries' -- 'Ghost World']

I wasn't exactly thrilled by Mason's return to Mystic Falls in 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' -- especially because I knew he was back to seek revenge on Damon -- but OMG I love Lexi. Seriously, she's probably one of my favorite characters in 'TVD' history, even though she's only really been in a handful of episodes. And after seeing the way she smashed Stefan's head into the window of a car, how could you not love her?!

All of the girls in Mystic Falls have some serious problems. Their boyfriends are either dead, undead, in love with dead girls or are crazy rippers. So it's nice to have a strong, badass female character in the mix -- because the status of Katherine's life is still TBD at the moment.

['The Vampire Diaries' -- 'Smells Like Teen Spirit']

After last week's amazing episode, I wasn't sure that the 'The Vampire Diaries' writers could possibly top it -- but they came pretty close with 'Smells Like Teen Spirit.' Elena stakes Stefan, Katherine possibly bites the dust (really!), Rebekah stakes Damon and Vicki comes back from the dead to try and kill Elena. There was so much possible near-death in this episode that I thought one of our main three would finally bite the big one, but alas, our love triangle remains -- unlike Katherine, who may very well be dead (like, dead dead.)

Perhaps Katherine should of thought twice before awakening Michael, the "badass vampire vampire hunter" because as it turned out, she became his midnight snack. Does this mean the end of Katherine? I hope not because let's face it, 150-year-old Nina Dobrev is so much more interesting than 18-year-old Nina Dobrev.

'The Vampire Diaries' Star Steven R. McQueen On Whether Jeremy's Dead Exes Will Get 'Ghost'-ly

by Laura Prudom, posted Oct 20th 2011 5:25PM
Steven R. McQueenDarn, those 'Vampire Diaries' actors are tough nuts to crack. Not since the days of 'Lost' has a cast been so tight-lipped about upcoming storylines ... we're starting to think that boss man Kevin Williamson threatens his stars with a gruesome on-screen death if they spill something they shouldn't.

We caught up with Steven R. McQueen (who plays Jeremy Gilbert) and, true to form, we discovered more about what he couldn't tell us than what he could.

Still, the few tidbits he did let slip hint at an intriguing few episodes ahead. We touched on Jeremy's relationship with Bonnie (Katerina Graham), his connection to the ghostly apparitions of Anna (Malese Jow) and Vicki (Kayla Ewell) and how his newfound ability links to Matt's (Zach Roerig).

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

Michael Trevino on 'The Vampire Diaries' Power Couple Caroline and Tyler: Their Relationship Is Genuine

by Jean Bentley, posted Oct 20th 2011 9:00AM
The Vampire DiariesLast week on 'The Vampire Diaries' brought us one of the biggest game-changers of the season thus far: Tyler, who was previously only burdened with the curse of turning into a werewolf every full moon, became the first successful (read: alive) member of Klaus' half-werewolf, half-vampire hybrid army.

When AOL TV caught up with star Michael Trevino on the Atlanta-area set of 'The Vampire Diaries,' he somehow very skillfully avoided spilling any of those secrets about his character, despite the fact that we watched him film a scene where he used his new vampire powers and didn't think anything of it.

While some of our chat is old news by now, read on for the still-relevant parts, including Trevino's thoughts on kissing scenes with Candice Accola, filming those intense werewolf transformations and Season 1 Tyler being a d-bag. And don't forget to check out our behind-the-scenes video from the set!

'The Vampire Diaries' Stars Preview 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' (VIDEO)

by Jean Bentley, posted Oct 17th 2011 4:00PM
The Vampire Diaries, Smells Like Teen SpiritIt was unseasonably warm for late September when AOL TV visited the Monroe, Ga. set of 'The Vampire Diaries' last month. But the 92-degree weather set the scene all the better for 'Smells Like Teen Spirit,' the episode the cast and crew were filming that day.

Although it's the sixth episode of the third season, it's actually the Mystic Falls High gang's first day of senior year. (We've only gone a year since the pilot.) That means cheerleading practice, football practice, and everything else that comes with having good ol' fashioned school spirit.

We haven't been able to share the details of our visit until now, so please enjoy this behind-the-scenes peek at 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' and watch Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Candice Accola, Michael Trevino and Matt Davis doing their best to share some spoiler-free details about the episode. Plus, you'll get a look at the Mystic Falls Timberwolves' newest cheerleader. You might've seen her before somewhere...

The Vampire Diaries['The Vampire Diaries' - 'The Reckoning']

Well, tonight's episode of 'The Vampire Diaries' proved why I'm not one for superlatives. Two episodes after I declared 'The End of the Affair' my favorite episode ever, those evil masterminds in the 'TVD' writers' room went and topped themselves. Again. I used to wonder how the show could sustain itself at such a ridiculous pace -- this was a random Thursday night episode, not sweeps, not a midseason finale, not a very special timeslot -- but at this point I think we can all agree that these guys know what they're doing.

Honestly, I feel like Stefon from 'Saturday Night Live' when I try to describe this show to people. It. Has. Everything. Vampires, werewolves, ghosts, witches, hybrids -- like, you know when a vampire lady has an affair with a werewolf and creates an evil offspring with characteristics of both supernatural breeds?

'The Vampire Diaries' Star Matt Davis Tells the Truth About Jenna and Alaric

by Jean Bentley, posted Oct 13th 2011 3:00PM
The Vampire Diaries, Matt DavisConfession time: Matt Davis, who plays high school teacher Alaric on 'The Vampire Diaries,' was never really into his character's romantic relationship with former Gilbert guardian Aunt Jenna.

"I felt that it was ultimately forced and never really fully developed in a way that I thought I could really bring a lot of life to it," he admitted recently in an interview with AOL TV.

That's not to say he didn't love working with Sara Canning, whose character was killed off at the end of Season 2. "As much as I was heartbroken to lose Sara -- as we were all heartbroken to lose her -- I creatively was relieved to be free of that relationship, because I just felt like it was difficult for me to really be in touch with it."

Why, exactly, was he so disconnected from the relationship? "I got tired of playing the doubt of lying to Jenna, the doubt of not being able to tell her what's really going on and his constant churning of like, 'What do I do? I'm lying to her, I'm this liar, I'm such a bad person,'" Davis said. "I really am glad that he's moving beyond that and he's coming into a state where he's much more open. I think his purpose is reactivated."

Read on for more of what Davis revealed when we visited the Atlanta-area 'Vampire Diaries' set, including an intriguing new twist for his character, his hopes for a new Alaric love interest, and how much fun he had while his character was possessed by the evil half-vampire, half-werewolf hybrid, Klaus.

Time to play which 'Vampire Diaries' moment was sadder: When Uncle John staked Anna in the chest and she died during Season 1 -- I literally wept when that happened (Also, uh, spoiler alert? But I mean that was a year and a half ago and you're currently reading a Season 3 recap so we should be good.) -- or when Jeremy shut her out and shunned her to solitude in ghost purgatory during Thursday's episode?

They're tied for me, especially since No. 2 means we're probably going to have to wait a while to see more Malese Jow, and every episode of 'The Vampire Diaries' is better with some Malese Jow.

'The Vampire Diaries' Star Nina Dobrev Says Teachers Can't Be Creepy If They're Cute

by Jean Bentley, posted Oct 6th 2011 7:15PM
The Vampire Diaries Nina DobrevAlthough Nina Dobrev's 'Vampire Diaries' character Elena Gilbert just celebrated her 18th birthday, the Virgina high-schooler is wise beyond her years.

"She's 18 going on 35 with all the problems that she has in her life," Dobrev told AOL TV during a visit to the Atlanta 'Vampire Diaries' set.

Those problems include taking care of her little brother, chasing after her now-evil vampire boyfriend, hiding from the half-vampire-half-werewolf hybrid who thinks he killed her in a sacrifice ritual and, oh yeah, going to high school. In other words, "she's a kid dealing with grown-up problems," Dobrev said.

Stefan, Vampire Diaries['The Vampire Diaries' - 'The End of the Affair']

I'm not one to pick favorites. Some people can name their top five favorite movies/songs/shows/etc. upon request, and some are doomed to a life of indecision. I'm one of the latter -- honestly, choosing five episodes of 'The Vampire Diaries' for our "Essential Episodes" series took about two weeks. But there is one thing I'm absolutely certain of: 'The End of the Affair' is my number one favorite 'TVD' episode of all time.

Alternately heartbreaking, hilarious, beautiful, engrossing and 100 percent enjoyable -- what more could you ask for in a high-school-set teen drama?

'The Vampire Diaries' Star Paul Wesley Thinks Stefan & Klaus Are the New Odd Couple

by Jean Bentley, posted Sep 29th 2011 5:35PM
The Vampire DiariesUntil this year, the most intense bromance on 'The Vampire Diaries' was the strong bond between Damon and Alaric.

But during Season 3, it's all about the blossoming relationship between Stefan Salvatore and the evil vampire-werewolf hybrid Klaus. And this time, it might be true love.

At least that's what star Paul Wesley told AOL TV during a break on the 'Vampire Diaries' set earlier this month. We also chatted up the actor about how Damon feels being stuck back in Mystic Falls watching over Elena while Stefan is out ripping it up.

Q&A: Candice Accola of 'The Vampire Diaries' Has Real-Life Daddy Trouble, Too

by Jean Bentley, posted Sep 29th 2011 12:30PM
Candice AccolaAt the end of last week's 'Vampire Diaries,' poor, abused Caroline Forbes was tied up in a dungeon-like basement (why are there so many freaky, torture-ready chambers in Mystic Falls?) as her heretofore unseen father, played by 'Heroes' star Jack Coleman, prepared to "fix" her so she wouldn't be a vampire anymore. Pretty heavy stuff for just the second episode of the season.

Having discussed Season 3 with Candice Accola, who plays Caroline, on the Atlanta-area 'Vampire Diaries' set just a few weeks ago, AOL TV knows that her character is safe (for now). Accola spilled plenty of scoop about Caroline's budding romance with werewolf Tyler, the sex scenes that make her dad uncomfortable, and Caroline's mindset this year, but she played coy about her impending daddy issues. Frankly, we're kind of worried that she's such a fantastic liar.
