Way back in November, during the mid-season hiatus, we asked you to pick your favorite episodes of The Vampire Diaries Season 3 (so far). There were only nine episodes to pick from (Homecoming, Ordinary People and The Reckoning took top honors), so we think it’s finally time to look back at the season as a whole. Pick your THREE favorite episodes of The Vampire Diaries Season 3 and leave a comment to tell us why your favorites reign.
Previously on The Vampire Diaries: the decade dance was in full swing and the entire state of Virginia was sold out of table salt. There were dastardly schemes coming to fruition, an awful lot of relationship drama and (bonus!) there were waistcoats everywhere. All in all, there was a lot going on in Do Not Go Gentle (EP320), and some of it was frankly confusing, so there’s no better way to get ready for Before Sunset (EP321) than with a recap roundup to help you get it all straight in your mind.
Oh decade dances — this was the one to end them all. Trickling stars, hideous chandeliers, wonderful 1920s costumes, bromances new and old . . . it should have been a magical night, but “dangerous dance karma” meant there was an unstoppable ghost witch on a mission to ruin everything.
We’re guessing you may have a lot of questions and feelings after last night’s emotional and action-packed episode, Do Not Go Gentle (EP320). Luckily, Julie Plec and several cast members did a Q&A with critics and journalists after a screening of the episode earlier in the week, so there are plenty of articles for you to read. Warning: These ALL have spoilers through Do Not Go Gentle (EP320), as well as hints about the last two episodes of the season, so read at your own risk! We’re serious!

Two trips to the roaring 20s this season? Yes please! While we’re not flashing back this time, we still get to see Stefan, Klaus and Rebekah dressed up in 20s style with the added bonus of the rest of the modern day Mystic Falls gang looking fancy. Considering what happened at the last decade dance, we dread to think how they can up the tragedy stakes in this one.
Once you’ve seen it and shaken yourself back to reality, swing by here to rate the new episode of The Vampire Diaries. Spoilers are welcome in the comments, though if you want more in-depth discussion then head on over to the forums! (You’ll need to register, but it takes two seconds.)
Quick guide to the poll options: Sprucing up the poll with a little bit of Art Deco to get you in the mood for some dancing, 20s style. 5 pieces of Art Deco = LOVE, 1 piece of Art Deco = MEH.
The Hollywood Reporter sat down with Ian Somerhalder to discuss the answer to this question: “How would Damon deal with the fact that Elena could choose either brother (or even neither)?” Watch his response below:
And The Insider caught up with Persia White to chat about the final three episodes of The Vampire Diaries Season 3:
Insider: Does she get in the mix with magic in the upcoming episodes?
Persia: Abby helps Bonnie in a pretty pivotal way that involves witchcraft in these last episodes. I know Abby isn’t in a stable place but her help causes some twists that lead to the big events of the season finale. They’re heavily influenced by the problems Abby is helping Bonnie with.
Decade dance time! The Vampire Diaries goes back to the 1920s tonight with Do Not Go Gentle (EP320), which airs tonight on the CW at 8/7c. Go find your flapper dress and practice the Charleston! And if you need a way to kill time until the show, might we suggest taking a look at the poem by Dylan Thomas that inspired tonight’s title? That should give you plenty of fodder for speculation.
Alert for Chicago-area fans: If you watch the show on WGN-TV, it will not be airing tonight – it’s being pre-empted for a baseball game. Do Not Go Gentle (EP320) will air on WGN-TV on Sunday, April 29 at 7 p.m. Thanks to Kim for letting us know!
