THIS POST IS A STICKY. KEEP SCROLLING FOR NEW POSTS.
Somehow, some way, we have survived an interminable, excruciating summer hiatus to arrive at this: The Vampire Diaries Season 3 premiere, The Birthday (EP301). Whose birthday, you ask? That would be Elena Gilbert’s 18th birthday, complete with friends, (what’s left of her) family, and a party in her honor at the Salvatore mansion. And it seems that while Damon’s attempting to hold down the fort in Mystic Falls, Stefan and Klaus are ripping their way through the South delivering their own brand of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
Also, don’t forget that directly after The Birthday you can watch The Secret Circle, the new Thursday night companion for The Vampire Diaries from Kevin Williamson, based on another L.J. Smith series.
Watch and then swing by here to rate the new episode of The Vampire Diaries. Spoilers are welcome in the comments, though if you want some 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: A party in the Salvatore boarding house with a gorgeous group of friends and Alaric as the only responsible adult? Someone has to be jumping out of a birthday cake shirtless, right? 5 birthday cakes = LOVE. 1 birthday cake = MEH.
