Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 1: “The Birthday”
Recap from CW: Klaus and Stefan begin hunting for one of the oldest werewolf clans so that Klaus can turn them into vampires in order to continue the breed of hybrids. Stefan and Klaus find out that Damon has been tracking them down through the reported killings and animals attacks mentioned in newspapers and other sources. Stefan goes back and gives Damon a ‘warning’ to back off by killing Andie, Damon’s semi-compelled girlfriend, after compelling her to fall off a high platform. Meanwhile, Elena’s 18th birthday arrives and Caroline holds a party for her. During the party, Jeremy continues to see the ghosts of Anna and Vicki, but keeps it to himself. He eventually admits the hauntings to Matt, though Matt jokes and brushes the matter off. Alaric, who has settled as Elena and Jeremy’s guardian after Jenna’s death, decides to move out of their house, as he considers himself a bad role model for them. Elena finds out about Damon’s plans to find Stefan, without notifying her and confronts him, though he is already upset by Andie’s death and Stefan’s change of attitude. Caroline becomes jealous of Tyler’s date Sophie at Elena’s birthday party and compells her to leave. Tyler then confronts her about their issues, they end up kissing eachother and leaving the party for Tyler’s house. In the morning, Caroline attempts to leave the Lockwood household quietly but is caught by Mrs. Lockwood. As Caroline grabs her purse to leave, her skin suddenly burns as it turns out the purse had been spiked with vervain. This confirms Mrs. Lockwood’s suspicions that Caroline is a vampire. Mrs. Lockwood then shoots Caroline several times with vervain darts, leaving her unconscious.
I love the last part when Stefan anonymously called Elena on the cellphone. The “lost-for-words” Stefan listened to Elena saying…”Hello?….Hello?…Stefan….Stefan if this is you, you’d be ok. I love you Stefan…Hold on to that. Never let that go.”
I love Vampire Diaries!!!
