The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Nina Dobrev on last night’s CW Premiere Party red carpet and she talks Elena, her evolving relationship with Stefan and Damon, and – oh, yes – Katherine. As for what to expect from Elena this season:
“She’s no longer letting the men in her life dictate what happens. She’s going to rise up and become a woman and fight,” Dobrev says.
We can never have too many photos of this gorgeous cast! In case you missed it, be sure to check out our first post of video and pics from the CW premiere party last night.

The CW has released the official synopsis for The End of the Affair (EP303), which will air Thursday, September 29th. Check out the Episode Index or highlight below for spoilers:
THE ROARING TWENTIES — Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) arrive in Chicago, where Stefan is reunited with a vampire (guest star Claire Holt, “Pretty Little Liars”) who hasn’t really moved on from her interest in him decades earlier. In a flashback to Chicago in the 1920s, Stefan comes face-to-face with a shocking chapter from his wild past. After Damon (Ian Somerhalder) gets a tip on Stefan and Klaus’ whereabouts from an unexpected source, he and Elena (Nina Dobrev) follow their trail. Back in Mystic Falls, Tyler is concerned about Caroline and turns to Sheriff Forbes (guest star Marguerite MacIntyre) for help.
This episode marks the first appearance of guest star Claire Holt. The episode was directed by Chris Grismer and written by Caroline Dries.
We’re not going to lie, fandom. We’d been a little underwhelmed by the promo so far for Vampire Diaries Season 3. Something was missing – that special bite. Well, it seems the CW had an ace up their sleeve and TV Line has the exclusive first look at the key art for Season 3. And it’s so good.
The set of four posters – featuring Nina, Paul, Ian, and Joseph – are dark, bloody, and hot as all hell. Check out the Nina poster below and see the full set over at TV Line.
UPDATE: Added all of the images to the Gallery. Click the photos below to view much larger versions, courtesy of the CW.
Just a post to say we’ve added HQ, watermark-free versions of all the Season 3 cast promotional photos released so far to the Gallery.
TV Guide‘s Robyn Ross has an exclusive sneak peek at The Hybrid, the second episode of Vampire Diaries Season 3.
In this exclusive photo from the second episode (Thursday, Sept. 22, 8/7c) of the new season, titled “The Hybrid,” Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) continues to be haunted by his dead-dead vampire ex-girlfriends Vicki (Kayla Ewell) and Anna (Malese Jow).
