Home now, feel like crap, gonna go bury my head and zonk out  
but first, looks like the synopsis for season three of The Vampire Diaries came out, and I'm excited about one thing, but surprisingly bummed about another. The second isn't really a spoiler, since it's obvious based on the finale we'd see him again. Joseph Morgan is listed as a series regular. I'm not bummed about him coming back; I'm just bummed that it's him and not Daniel Gillies. As adorable as Morgan is, he simply did not make the splash that Gillies did and I'm really disappointed that he's not coming back as a regular. Ah well, maybe it will happen sometime during the season.

The thing that got me excited is more of a spoiler for sure --

Season three opens the door to learn more about Klaus and The Original Family as his motives for wanting Stefan on his side are finally revealed. As Stefan sinks deeper into the dark side, Damon and Elena struggle with the guilt of their growing bond even as they work together to bring Stefan back from the edge. The ghosts from Jeremy's past have a powerful message they're trying to deliver to him, not to mention the impact they're having on his relationship with Bonnie. And as Caroline and Tyler grow closer, a war erupts between their families.

SQUEEE!!! So (a) Damon isn't going to be a jerk trying to steal Stefan's girl while he's on a bender, (b) if they're feeling guilt then those feelings are REALLY there and so not platonic, and (c) (in my best Chandler Bing voice) could it BE any more obvious that Damon and Elena are THE love story?

So, again, SQUEEE!

Hah, I just posted the same thing. Everything about that summary delights me and I cannot, cannot wait for next season. I adore this show and everything it chooses to be.

I'm just bummed that it's him and not Daniel Gillies.

Aww I'm sorry, hon. I'm not as big a fan of Elijah as you are, but Julie keeps talking about how much they love him/Gillies, so I'm sure you'll still get plenty of him! :)
Arabian: Damon & Elena03arabian on May 19th, 2011 06:24 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I got the link from your post. :)

I'm sure we'll still see Daniel/Elijah, I'm just really disappointed he's not a regular. He so should be. :( Definitely over Joseph Morgan. And I say this really liking Joseph Morgan and his portrayal of Klaus.

And Damon will be all noble: no, we can't, and finally Elena will just grab him and be the aggressor, and I might die of SQUEE!

Yes, please, THIS. Just think of the fic possibilities too! I join you in the SQUEE!

I definitely want Elena to be the one to say, "Stefan is gone. I want you, you want me. Let's do this!"
Heather-Annlinsell_farm on May 19th, 2011 08:16 pm (UTC)
GAH!!!! What a completely wonderful notion <3
Beccy: VD ~ Katherine1epic_love on May 19th, 2011 06:16 pm (UTC)
SQUEE!!!! SO EXCITED!!! But equally bummed about Gillies, hopefully he'll still be in it at some point.
Arabian: Katherine05arabian on May 19th, 2011 06:26 pm (UTC)
I'm sure that we'll see Elijah/Daniel still, I'm just bummed that it's not even a sure thing for people now. I like Morgan, but Daniel was just GUH! Amazing/

Still, so excited for season three.

Eeeeee, it's gonna be 1x19-1x21 (the last time Stefan went on a bender ;p ) x 1000!!! :D I adore that version of D/E, so that will be such a treat, yay!!! :)

(Is Gillies coming back at all? :( )

I know, right!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm sure Daniel Gillies is coming back and we'll see him, I just am really bummed that he's not a regular. :(
tams71tams71 on May 19th, 2011 06:21 pm (UTC)
I was already excited for season three because I was pretty sure that it was going to focus on the Damon/Elena relationship, but after reading the season tease, I'm even more excited. This last season was more about Damon's feelings for Elena than hers for him, so knowing that Damon will not be alone in this makes me giddy. YAY!

I was disappointed that Danile Gillies wasn't made a series regular, but I'm sure they'll be bringing him and Elijah back with a bang, no doubt. I love Joseph Morgan, but like you and many others, I think Daniel Gillies is ah-mazing!!
Arabian: Damon03arabian on May 19th, 2011 06:27 pm (UTC)
Just all-around -- I KNOW, RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been grinning like a maniac ever since I read that. That is *exactly* what I've been thinking needed to happen. I was so afraid that they'd try to push the relationship harder than that, and it would have failed so hard if they did.

It's so important to the longevity and legitmacy of their relationship that neither of them feel okay about starting anything without resolving things with Stefan, and so equally important that it be a *struggle* for them to not move foward now that the floodgates are opened, as it were.

Could not be happier.

(And suspect that Elijah's name was kept out because he's officially "dead" and they don't want to reveal his comeback in the casting anouncements at the begining of summer.)
Vickie: Ian - Brothers Salvatore Hugsarcasticcheese on May 19th, 2011 07:25 pm (UTC)
I'm guessing because Elijah got himself dead again, if they said Daniel Gillies was a series regular, everyone would know he's coming back from teh dead. Again.

So, don't lost hope yet. :D
Heather-Annlinsell_farm on May 19th, 2011 08:15 pm (UTC)
LMAO ... I adore your Chandler Bing voice, Jenn and, of course, completely join in the collective SQUEEEE at DE struggling with their guilt as their bond grows and strengthens!!!!! Season 3 can sooooo not get here soon enough!!!!!

I'm totally with you about Daniel Gillies deserving to be a series regular (rather than Joseph Morgan). I like Klaus, too, but I'd definitely choose Elijah over him.

I'm going with the notion that the show simply doesn't want to give away Elijah's return and that Daniel will be gracing our TV screens very early in the season.

I am very curious to see what Klaus' motivation for choosing Stefan are, as well as how deep into the dark side Stefan gets, not to mention what situations will arise for Damon & Elena in the name of saving the younger Salvatore brother...

Is it September yet????

When Elijah rolled onto the screen, I was enormously taken by him. When he flung that stack of quarters at the window of the cafe that Rose, Slater, and Damon were at? It gave me chills. For me, personally, what lessened the impact of Klaus was him first arriving on the scene through possession of a regular cast member. (Not that Matt Davis didn't do a fabulous job.) Even with that aside, Elijah always had more of a presence and wow factor. Klaus was a lot more subtle and a lot less BAMF for me. (In Joseph's defense, the more I rewatch his scenes, the more I appreciate them, but I just feel that Daniel is playing on an entirely different plane.) Here's to hoping that JP and KW have a few ideas up their sleeve about Elijah. As a few other commenters have stated, they might be keeping Gillies casting on the down low.

I love that spoiler/tease about season 3. I'm hoping they don't decide to resolve this side of Dark!Stefan anytime soon. I'm sure they won't, but it's still a worry in the back of my mind. As for Damon and Elena, I am even more excited to see what transpires between them as guilt and feelings mount. This sounds very promising in that we can expect a lot of scenes between them - whether angsty/depressive, fighting, or even laughing. Gosh, I have no idea how I'm going to occupy and distract myself without this show in my life for 4 months.
vanimy: D/Evanimy on May 19th, 2011 11:34 pm (UTC)
Elijah is TEH awesome and I agree with you on prefering Daniel Gillies to Joseph Morgan (and Elijah pwns Klaus, seriously). We'll see how it plays out I'm sure they'll keep Elijah around for a good while they need him to do something about Klaus me thinks.

You're the devil! I didn't want to look at spoilers but I couldn't resist when I saw it was about Damon/Elena I gave into temptation lolll It wasn't so bad but I grinned like an idiot!! I love the fact there will be guilt on both of their parts and we'll get tons of UST and angst (and I'm such an angst addict I love this) I think Delena is going to be epic. I love the fact the writers take their time with them and it makes me think that all of this care shows that they're indeed endgame. :D

BTW did you see Kevin Williamson's interview by Candice? He said Damon was his favorite character to write and Season 3 would be about Damon/Elena (that was his first answer) and also Klaus' bigger plan than just breaking the curse and having Stefan as a drinking buddy. I'm more excited than ever about Season 3!!

this is how i feel about your post
luvbama: i'll be backluvbama on May 20th, 2011 04:09 pm (UTC)
Joseph Morgan is listed as a series regular.

May I ask where you saw this?

Elijah will be back because he simply MUST be, and Klaus had better watch his back because there's no way Elijah is going to be a happy camper.
Arabian: Elijah01arabian on May 20th, 2011 04:39 pm (UTC)
The official release includes the entire cast list and Joseph Morgan is listed on it.

I'm sure we'll still see Elijah, but I am bummed he's not a regular. :(
luvbama: bamfluvbama on May 20th, 2011 04:50 pm (UTC)
Do you have a link to the official release?

I'm bummed, too, but I'm hoping Elijah will be a cast regular sooner rather than later.

Hope you're feeling better. :)
Arabian: Elijah02arabian on May 20th, 2011 05:08 pm (UTC)
Here's the official release.

Yeah, I hope it happens in the season too.

Not feeling better yet. I hate this bug so much.

Thanks for the link. :)

Yeah, bugs suck. Fingers crossed you can soon kick yours to the curb.

A million days but this makes me super excited!!! Bring on season 3! I do wish it was Elijah and not Klaus who was gonna be a series regular. Klaus was certainly something but Elijah was definitely my preferred original :)
