'The Vampire Diaries:' Where does the triangle go from here?

There were plenty of major developments on the season four premiere of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday night, but it’s the love triangle (or, for some, the lack of a love triangle) between Stefan (Paul Wesley), Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) that seems to be inspiring the most fan fervor.

While some fans were happy to see newly-turned vamp Elena sticking it out with Stefan, others were disappointed about the lack of progress between her and Damon. Meanwhile, some suggested it was time to end the love triangle all together. That last option doesn’t seem like much of a possibility, especially since Somerhalder recently told EW that it will continue to evolve in season four. The question is, how can it move forward without, well, going backward?

Here’s my personal wish-list:

1. A new girl for Stefan
Relax Stelena fans, I’m not suggesting she become the love of Stefan’s life or anything. It’s just that we’ve seen Stefan romancing (and brooding over) Elena since the start of the series, isn’t it about time he played the field with someone new? (Or, maybe I should say someone familiar. After all, I’ve always loved his chemistry with Caroline). Added bonus: We’d get to see a jealous Elena.

2. A Damon and Elena partnership
I know the will-they-won’t-they tension can get redundant, but let’s face it, it’s also half the fun. So, instead of seeing Damon and Elena pursue a full-fledged relationship in season four (boring!), I’d like to see them team up to take down the latest threat to Mystic Falls. After all, these two have always been at their bantering best when they’re either working together or going on road-trips. (Need I remind you of their chemistry-laden adventure in season one?)

3. Elena goes solo
She’s been there and done that with Stefan and (sort of) Damon, so maybe it’s time for Elena to take a break from both brotherly suitors. Anyway, I hear Elijah is single.

Your turn! How would you like the love triangle to evolve this season?

What should Gabby Douglas do during her 'Vampire Diaries' cameo?

Olympic gold medalist gymnast Gabby Douglas is in Atlanta today on the set of her favorite show, The Vampire Diaries, shooting a cameo and allowing Ian Somerhalder to take a bite of her hardware (pictured). The small guest role is in season 4’s seventh episode, airing Nov. 29, EW has confirmed. But Gabby won’t be playing herself. So, what’s your dream scenario?

She could just be a face in the crowd at the Grill or Mystic Falls High (they do occasionally go to class!). Maybe she could be in Elena’s gym class when Elena realizes she has to tone down her vampire athletic abilities. Nina Dobrev is a former rhythmic gymnast, so they could have some fun together. Or perhaps Elena will watch Gabby’s character walk by with that sweet smile, so full of life, and mourn the loss of her innocence.

It would be awesome if Klaus (or Damon, on a bender) drank from her, but that wouldn’t happen, right? What’s your pitch?

'Vampire Diaries' anniversary: What's been your favorite twist?

vampire-diaries.jpg

Three years ago today, Sept. 10, 2009, The Vampire Diaries debuted on The CW. To celebrate, exec producer Julie Plec tweeted her favorite episodes (in order of airdate) Sunday night. Check out her picks here. She named 17 episodes, with season 3’s “The Reckoning” — when Klaus finally succeeds in forcing Stefan to turn off his humanity on Senior Prank Night — as possibly her all-time favorite.

Reading her list, filled with general epicness and top tissue moments (“Plan B,” “The Descent,” “Ghost World”), I was surprised that I reacted so strongly to Plec’s mention of season 2 episode “Klaus.” As Plec wrote, “[N]ever was an episode full of exposition so well-executed. And because the Sun and Moon Curse was fake.” I still remember how shocked I was when Elijah (Daniel Gillies) said that. Everything we thought we knew was wrong.

In honor of the show’s anniversary, name your favorite twist. The show has about 10 each episode, so there are plenty to choose from!

Olympics: Nina Dobrev is as obsessed with gymnastics and Gabby Douglas as you are (maybe more)

After hearing that 16-year-old U.S. gymnast Gabby Douglas is a huge fan of their show, the cast of The Vampire Diaries made her a video congratulating her on her team and individual all-around golds and wishing her and her teammate, Aly Raisman, good luck in today’s event finals. Watch it below. (No spoilers in the comments, please!)

Nina Dobrev, a former artistic and rhythmic gymnast, was behind the group effort. “Forget sleep. It’s all about the Olympics right now. I’m obsessed. Like, it’s actually a problem. They’re starting to tell me I’m looking tired on set, and it’s because I’m up until, like, two in the morning watching the Olympics and going to work at 5 a.m.,” Dobrev told EW earlier today. “I used to be a gymnast, and I competed internationally, so it’s my favorite time. I even bought a 3D TV so that I could watch them in 3D. When I found out that Gabby liked the show, I was incredibly excited and really happy to make the video. And now we follow each other on Twitter, so we’ve been direct messaging. The 16-year-old in me wishes that I was up there with them. So I’m just so happy for her success. And she’s so cute. She has the most amazing smile.”  READ FULL STORY
