Entertainment Weekly‘s Mandi Bierly has more Season 3 goodies courtesy of Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec, and this time we have a nice tease for the developing relationship between Tyler and Caroline. Last we left our species-crossed pair, they were cuddling underneath a blanket in differing stages of (un)dress. And it looks like romance is indeed in the air though, like everything on The Vampire Diaries, it’s complicated:
“We now have a mother who knows her daughter’s a vampire, and we might soon have a mayor who figures out that her son is a werewolf,” Williamson says. “When that happens, it’s certainly building itself to a family feud. That’s the fun Mystic Falls storyline that’s underplaying throughout the entire season.”
Entertainment Weekly wants to know your pick for the Sexiest Couple on Network TV, and Elena and Stefan are nominated. They’re up against couples from everything from current favorites like Gossip Girl and Grey’s Anatomy to classics like The Dick Van Dyke Show, and even another vampire/human pairing (from Buffy), so they really need your vote!
So here’s some cool news: Vampire Diaries swept every category it was nominated for in Entertainment Weekly‘s Season Finale Awards. For those keeping count, they were nominated in 11 categories and they won every single one of them. (Yes, including Single Weakest Twist and the special Your Penultimate Episode Was Better Than Your Finale. Weird. award.) And as for Single Most Clever Twist, which garnered TVD two nominations, it was the return of Vicki and Anna that won out.
