With "The Vampire Diaries" set to launch its thrid season at 7 p.m. Sept. 15, CW has released another trailer that shows fans something not unexpected, but, um exciting.
Yes, that is Caroline jumping into bed with Tyler. I knew those crazy kids would get together after Caroline peeked under his blanket in the Season 2 finale. When Candice Accola, who plays Caroline, was in Chicago in May she said Tyler (Michael Trevino) was fully clothed, but I wasn't buying it. (You can find that video interview at the bottom of this page.) Anyway, that's just one of the teasers in the latest promo. Others include:
1. Elena (Nina Dobrev) is having a difficult time celbrating her 18th birthday (the season premiere is titled "The Birthday") because Stefan (Paul Wesley) has left town to be bad-vamp buddies with Klaus (Joseph Morgan). To that effect, we see Damon (Ian Somerhalder) tell Elena, "You can forget about him. He's not coming back."
2. Stefan tells Damon to stop searching for him. "Let … me … go," he warns.
3. We get a quick glimpse of Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen), who if you remember can see his two dead girlfriends.
4. Despite sweetly telling Elena he never wanted her to see him in his ripper vamp state, he seems to be enjoying tearing out the throats of the women Klaus presents to him.
I've added the sizzle reel that was shown at San Diego Comic Con and the congrats video for "TVD's" Teen Choice wins.
