'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' Season 3, Episode 6 Recap (VIDEO)

['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' 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...

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.

'The Vampire Diaries' Star Paul Wesley on Ripper Stefan: 'It's Everything I Wanted'

by Jean Bentley, posted Sep 22nd 2011 1:00PM
The Vampire Diaries, Paul WesleyAfter two years of playing Stefan Salvatore, 'The Vampire Diaries'' resident perfect boyfriend and all-around nice guy (who just so happens to be a perpetually 17-year-old vampire), Paul Wesley makes no secret that he loves the murderous turn his character has taken recently.

Now that Stefan has become "the Ripper," nicknamed as such for the savage way the formerly docile vampire tears apart people's bodies as he feeds on them (yes, pretty brutal for a CW teen soap), he couldn't be happier.

"It's everything I wanted," he told AOL TV last week when we visited the Atlanta-area 'Vampire Diaries' set. "The thing is, it's a transition. It's gradual. We open up this season -- and I don't want to give too much away -- but it's kind of like we're at the precipice of something happening. We're at this point where he's still holding on to a bit of that old part of himself."

But Good Stefan doesn't stick around for long. "As the story progresses we see his journey, his struggle, his disease take over, this darkness, and it sort of turns into a Stefan that has no morals," Wesley explained. "That's really, really fun to play. I get to play a whole new character and I get to do something that I have never done, and the audiences get to see me in a way that they never would've expected."

Catch Up With 'The Vampire Diaries': 5 Essential Episodes

by Jean Bentley, posted Aug 30th 2011 2:15PM
So you've heard the buzz, your interest is tickled and you're ready to take the plunge into a new show. What's that? You don't have time to catch up on multiple seasons?

Have no fear, AOL TV is here. We've been spotlighting five episodes from some of the best scripted comedies and dramas on TV that you need to see before jumping into the new season this fall.

Up now? 'The Vampire Diaries.'

The Vampire Diaries
In the grand tradition of high school shows before it (including co-creator Kevin Williamson's own 'Dawson's Creek'), 'The Vampire Diaries' features one epic love triangle. Our 17-year-old heroine Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) and her troubled little brother Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) live in Mystic Falls, Virginia with their Aunt Jenna (Sara Canning) after the tragic death of their parents. As is wont to happen on The CW, Elena falls for the heartthrob new kid in town, Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley). One problem -- he's a vampire (and has been stuck at 17 years old since 1864), and so is his evil older brother, Damon (Ian Somerhalder).

Comic-Con Q&A: The 'Vampire Diaries' Cast On Season 3 Lip-Locking & More (VIDEO)

by Laura Prudom, posted Jul 24th 2011 2:00AM
Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, Paul WesleyThe cast of 'The Vampire Diaries' knows how to keep a secret -- in fact, we're pretty sure their jobs depend on their ability to do so.

Lucky for fans who love surprises, but unlucky for reporters on the Comic-Con press line for the hit CW show, their lips were shut tighter than the entrance to Katherine's tomb.

Still, we managed to unearth a few hints about what we can expect from Season 3, including what Stefan's new alliance with Klaus might mean for his future with Elena ("He's trying to hold on as much as he can to the humanity that's left inside of him," Paul Wesley said) and what more we might learn about Klaus ("Maybe see a little more vulnerability to him, a little more of a human side," Joseph Morgan ventured. "... if he has such a thing.")

And we also got some insight into what Damon and Elena's mindsets will be when the show returns: "Damon's pissed," Ian Somerhalder said matter-of-factly. And about that kiss? "I'm never gonna hear the end of this one, am I?," laughed Nina Dobrev.

One more thing about that kiss: Somerhalder was wondering if we were all watching the same "steamy, passionate kiss" in the finale that he was. From his vantage point, there was nothing sexy about it.

Doesn't matter -- we hear there's plenty more lip-locking to come in the season premiere. Watch the video for more scoop.

'The Vampire Diaries' Cast Talks Season 3 & Strip Clubs

by Jean Bentley, posted May 25th 2011 12:00PM
The Vampire DiariesSince filming on season 3 of 'The Vampire Diaries' is still months away, when AOL TV caught up with the cast at The CW upfront red carpet yesterday none of the stars had any real clue about what their characters will be up to come fall.

They did, however, have a few suggestions for when Kevin Williamson, Julie Plec and the rest of the writers finally sit down to brainstorm the season.

"I'd like to see Elena stand on her own two feet and fly solo for a second," Nina Dobrev suggested.

Ian Somerhalder's hopes for Damon were a little less lofty. "I just hope that Damon and Stefan and Klaus can go on a bender or two," he said.

Paul Wesley was into the partying idea: "Get hammered, go to Tijuana, strip clubs, tequila."

Joseph Morgan as Klaus, 'The Vampire Diaries'Have you heard? Klaus is coming.

Yes, 'Vampire Diaries' fans, I know that's all anyone can talk about these days, but come on -- the guy is an Original. We've witnessed some pretty powerful supernatural stuff on that show, but Klaus' arrival will absolutely be the craziest thing we've seen yet.

We hit the Atlanta set of 'The Vampire Diaries' to catch up with the cast and talk all about the O.G. fanged one's arrival in Mystic Falls. Who's met Klaus so far? And who's gone head-to-head with him? "Actually I've just shot one scene with him so far," Paul Wesley revealed. "It was pretty submissive ... one of us was relatively submissive. [laughs]"

Katerina Graham dished about Bonnie's inevitable showdown with Klaus: "She's the one person -- that's been revealed -- that can stop him. ... So I don't think she's expecting to just fly to Hawaii and forget about him for a while."

'The Vampire Diaries' finally returns this week (Thurs., April 7, 8PM ET on The CW), but if you're like me, you've been keeping up with the cast on Twitter over this way too long hiatus.

Since there's been little news lately about what's coming next -- save the arrival of Klaus, who'll be played by Joseph Morgan -- it was huge news when Stefan Salvatore himself, Paul Wesley, finally joined Twitter after years of refusing.

The Vampire Diaries

We hit the 'Vampire Diaries' set in Atlanta to catch up with Paul and costars Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder, Candice Accola, Zach Roerig, Kat Graham, Steven McQueen, Matt Davis and Sara Canning. They all opened up about who they follow on Twitter and decided who gets credit for finally getting Paul to tweet.

Comic-Con: 'V,' 'Fringe' and 'Vampire Diaries' Round-Up

fringe_fox_castFull disclosure, spoilerhounds -- I don't watch 'V,' 'Fringe' or 'The Vampire Diaries' (two of them are on my DVR, I swear!) so you'll have to forgive my ignorance in the following bullet-point recap of all three panels; I have no idea of character dynamics (or even names, without the help of IMDB) but I'll attempt to make the round-up as coherent as possible, and you can correct my ignorance in the comments if you so desire.

Though, after the panels and meeting some of the pretty cast members at the Warner Bros. party last night, they've all moved up on my must-watch list!

Needless to say: SPOILER ALERT.

Let's jump in with 'V' ...

'The Vampire Diaries' - 'Blood Brothers' Recap

The Vampire Diaries, Paul Wesley, Blood Brothers
(S01E20) "You're back on Bambi blood, and I'm a badass big brother again. All is right in the world." - Damon to Stefan

A jealous brother, an evil uncle, and a trusting girlfriend all played into this episode of 'The Vampire Diaries.' We also got some flashbacks that revealed more of the Salvatore brothers' backstory and why Damon hates Stefan so much. Although, really, if he hated him that much, he wouldn't have organized the rescue mission to extract Stefan out of the vampires' farmhouse lair. Maybe he did it more for Elena than anything else.

And is it just me, or are Damon and Elena getting awfully chummy lately? I'll answer my own question: yes, they are.

Stefan may think he's the good brother, but despite his best efforts to stay that way, he's going dark. He can't deny his true nature, and drinking human blood just brings that boiling up inside his soul.
