'The Vampire Diaries' Winter Premiere: 5 Reasons To Get Excited

‘The Vampire Diaries’ returns Jan. 5 and I’ve got a taste of what you can expect to see in Mystic Falls…

There’s an obnoxiously large red circle over this Thursday on my calendar, which can only mean one thing — The Vampire Diaries is finally back! HollywoodLife.com got to watch the winter premiere in advance, and while the entire hour is literally dripping with goodness, I managed to select the five things I think you’ll all be most excited to see.

1. A whole new Stefan: We were promised a more bad-ass Stefan (Paul Wesley) in the second half of season three, even though he’s no longer under Klaus’ compulsion. And trust me, we get exactly what we hoped for. I barely even recognize him anymore, which is good, because Stefan’s soft center — he’s like a vampire Peep — was one of the main reasons I’ve been Team Damon all this time. Maybe that’s about to change…

2. Damon & Elena scenes: Everything “Delena” shippers have enjoyed about Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) developing relationship this season remains constant on the winter premiere. There’s touching, there’s flirty talk, there’s… OK, I need to stop. I’m getting a little hot and bothered up in hurr.

3. Stefan vs. Damon: I’ve been trying to come up with all sorts of adorable ways of describing this confrontation — “bro-down” was my favorite — but simply put, Stefan and Damon go at it like never before. There’s yelling, there’s punching, and maybe even a little stabbing. But it’s what eventually comes out during the fight that will really please fans of both brothers.

4. Someone says goodbye: A death, a break-up, or just a much needed vacation? I won’t say why a certain character bids farewell to Mystic Falls this week, but I will say that it reduces someone to tears — and not just the viewers.

5. Torrey DeVitto: Paul Wesley’s wife finally makes her highly anticipated debut in Mystic Falls this week as Dr. Fell, and honestly, it’s really great to see her in a role that doesn’t require to be a pregnant bitch or a psychotic nanny who chases wee children through cornfields. Quite the change of pace.

The show should end with Delena not just because Damon’s extremely hot but because they have intimacy. What is obsession? :”> AHHAAHAHHA. LEGGO DELENA. asjcklasjnbcjsdchlksajdlkyeahhh. Lastly, I WOULD LIKE TO INFORM THE WORLD…IAN’S SO HOT. =P~~~

OMG!! U know what? I just came across my best friend and her new boyfriend meeting on a nice dating place–casualloving dot c’0m–. Oh, so gorgeous. I must have a try, too. This place is the first and best club for charming lady and handsome man to find intimate encounters or begin NSA relationship, safe and private! It’s for me who wanna begin a relation without too many limits and bounds. Why waiting? Let your soul fly free and find your Mr. or Miss. Right here. Best wishes!

“was one of the main reasons I’ve been Team Damon all this time. Maybe that’s about to change…”

You better be fucking kidding me. It’s bad enough that they’re turning Stefan in season 1 Damon, but people falling for it is even worse.

Thanks for the awesome sneak peeks into the episode tomorrow! I have been waiting soooo impatiently for tomorrow night to arrive for two reasons: The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle. I can’t wait!!

I hope you do something like this for TSC too, since I know you also got an advance look at the show as well.
