Finally! I finished season 3 of The Vampire Diaries. I am absolutely in love with this series and it just keeps getting better and better. The second season ends with Stefan (Elena's boyfriend) surrendering himself to the original vampire Klaus in order to get his hybrid (vampire/werewolf) blood to save his brother Damon from a deadly werewolf bite. Season 3 begins with Elena's 18th birthday, so a few months have passed since Stefan and Klaus started on their journey to find werewolves to turn into hybrids. Damon and Elena's relationship grows as they try and track Stefan to try and bring him home. While Stefan is away he turns into "the ripper" because Klaus has him feed on human blood, thus bringing out the true predator in him. This season was full of great twists and intense horror scenes.
After watching this series from the beginning I can really appreciate the growth that the show and the cast has shown. I think that the show was cast very well and the characters evolved well throughout the seasons. I enjoyed how they tied more of the original family of vampires in this season. It really gave the show a deeper plot line as well as spicing up the interactions between characters. Even though Klaus is considered a bad vampire I just think he is a bad-ass vamp. He is what a true vampire consists of: feeding off human blood, using his powers of mind manipulation for self satisfaction and consuming power by taking others.
In this season we see Bonnie's powers increase tremendously and her relationship with Jeremy also grows. Ghosts will play a big part in this season, due to Jeremy coming back from the dead the ancient witches have consequences in store for him, like the ability to see and talk to dead people. This will cause huge problems as the gap between the living and the dead opens up. Also, my excitement almost cannot be contained when I see Damon and Elena's relationship strengthening as they grow closer as Stefan becomes darker this season. I left some good plot twists out because I didn't want to spoil it. So make sure you take a peek! Its on Netflix:)
