Here are a few tidbits from Zap2It (including above, a first look at the season opener titled “The Birthday”), E!Online and TV Guide. They are dishing out Vampire Diaries Season 3 scoop! First Zap2it caught up with Ian Somerhalder. He teases Damon’s gift to Elena for her 18th birthday.
Somerhalder tells us that the present is rather unconventional. “She refuses to let him buy her anything, so he doesn’t technically give her anything for her birthday,” he says. “But he came across something that she really, really, really wanted and needed, and he did what he had to do to get it for her. She thinks that he stole it, or that he found it. It’s a very beautiful moment between them. It’s a really sweet, quiet moment.”
firingaway: Any Damon and Elena news you can share with us?
Just because Stefan (Paul Wesley) is currently out of the picture doesn’t mean that Elena (Nina Dobrev) is just going to fall into the arms (or bed) of Damon (Ian Somerhalder). However, Damon and Elena will be teaming up in a different way. “They are joining forces to try and find Stefan to make sure that he’s OK,” Dobrev tells us. Will the time apart help or hinder the bond of Stelena? Only time (and more episodes) will tell. “It’s going to be one of those situations [where] either absence makes the heart grow fonder or out of sight, out of mind. So, it’s going to be interesting to see.”
Angela_Rocca: Something about Tyler and Caroline on Vampire Diaries, please!
You’ve heard Kevin Williamson comparing Tyler (Michael Trevino) and Caroline (Candice Accola) to Romeo and Juliet, yes? We brought that up to Candice recently, who had this to say: “That makes me a little bit nervous! But it’s still early on. We have a lot of new characters coming on, and hopefully they’ll have a more positive ending than Romeo and Juliet.” Yeah, let’s hope you don’t both end up dead. Let’s shoot for that for now. But does she mean those new characters might be sweeping Caroline off her stilettos?

Will Damon and Elena go on the hunt to find Stefan on Vampire Diaries? —Sarah
NATALIE: They will both attempt to find him, but one is certainly trying harder than the other. “Damon loves his brother, he can’t deny that anymore, but at the same time, his relationship is building with Elena in a very nice way, so that maybe he’s not trying as hard as he should to find Stefan,” executive producer Kevin Williamson tells us, adding that Damon will feel guilt over that. As for Stefan, the ripper lifestyle will lend for some serious life contemplation on his part. “Will he ever be able to come back and how will Stefan and Elena save him if they do? It’s really going to be about the journey for Stefan: What’s Klaus up to? What’s Klaus’ use for him? It twists and turns in a bunch of different ways that are surprising.”
