Fanhattan: What’s coming up for Jeremy and Caroline?
Julie Plec: Well, Jeremy is now the man of the house which is going to be an interesting role for him to try to step into, because Elena as his big sister is still going to try to be bossing him around. But he himself comes from a long line of people who have hunted vampires and now he is living under the same roof as the brother to one. So he’s going to have some interesting exploring to do. Caroline of course is the object of affection of the original vampire Klaus who is nasty and dark and evil but who secretly loves her. So not only is she going to have to deal with his evil master plans but also his diabolical desire to break her up with Tyler. So she is going to have to deal with trying to keep him at bay while she tries to be a good girlfriend and remain in a committed relationship with Tyler.

Entertainment Weekly has the scoop about Bonnie’s new power and what big part she has this season.
Because I can never have enough, any scoop on Bonnie? #TVD — Jenna
First, can we take a beat to recognize the epic-ness of last night’s episode? (Miss it? Read the recap here.) Second, you know that coffin dream that proved to be more accurate than initially thought? There are more of those to come. “I love that they brought in that aspect of her, because a lot of the stuff that Bonnie experiences in terms of being a witch is very external and all about doing a spell and a lot of physicality,” says Kat Graham. “I’m all about the mind, so the fact that they basically are shooting the character in kind of a parallel universe [in those dreams] is super exciting to me and definitely one of my favorite things that they’ve done this season with her.” This isn’t the first time Bonnie has had premonitions. In season 1, a vision predicted when Coach Tanner died, but since then, we haven’t had any more indicators of her future-telling abilities. “Now it seems like they’re evolving it into more actual dreams or visions in her sleep,” Graham adds. And per EP Julie Plec, “Her dreams are all leading her somewhere.” For more TVD scoop, read what Plec had to say about last night’s midseason return and next week’s episode (naked Damon!).
Lots of spoilers from E!Online, Zap2it, and Entertainment Weekly.
Kristin Dos Santos recap last night’s episode, but she also answers a question that’s been in all of your minds. Is Jeremy coming back?
So could Elena’s baby bro be gone from MF…for good? For now, the CW is keeping the details of when—or if— Jeremy’s returning to town a secret. However, a solid source assures us that Jeremy (McQueen) will be seen again on the show soon, and although he may be off the series for a little while, he will not be gone forever. Relieved?

and Elena kiss, the aftermath of the kiss and Damon’s naked scene, and did Stefan really threaten to make Elena a vampire.
What I liked about it was that it was satisfying, but you never felt like he was going to pressure her for more. Looking ahead, how do they react to it?
One of my favorite moments of that whole scene, weirdly, is after he kisses her. It’s very clear that her breath has been kinda taken away and that he’s knocked her socks off a little. Then he just looks at her and says “goodnight” and walks away. He said, “If I’m gonna feel guilty about something, I’m gonna feel guilty about this.” He took the moment, he seized the day, he was a cowboy. [Laughs] And now, he’s a man who can walk off and say, “Hey, I did what I needed to do, and now let’s get back to life as we know it.”
After Thanksgiving, Ian Somerhalder tweeted, “Of course 1st day back from a stuffing-your-face holiday, Damon Salvatore is naked. WTF?!” I’m doing the math. Will we see him naked in next week’s episode?
Yes. [Laughs] He’s got a reason to be in a good mood when we come back next week. We start the episode with him in the shower starting his day off with a smile.
I wanted to touch on that recent “Human or Stefan?” promo. That shot of Stefan speeding with Elena in the passenger seat, saying maybe he should turn her into a vampire, and biting his wrist — totally hot.
Yeah. I love that episode. That’s next week’s episode. Stefan goes to such terrible extremes to make his point and to get Klaus to back down. It’s really devastating what he does, and it really cuts right to the core of his love story with Elena. It’s a big Stefan-and-Elena relationship episode in that you get a sense of how tragic and sad it is that such a great love has been ripped apart as a result of everything that Klaus has done.
So that scene is real. It’s not some kind of a dream?
Oh, that scene is very real and very hard on Elena. The one thing that Stefan always protected for her was her choice, and here he is, threatening to take it away.

Are you book fans happy that you finally have Meredith in the show? Torrey Devitto portrays Meredith.
Certainly, the Meredith who is introduced in the show is very different from the Meredith we know from the books. Some differences are obvious — her name has been changed from Sulez to Fell, for one, but fans of Bonnie McCullough and Matt Honeycutt know that’s sometimes a necessary evil. She’s also a doctor, not a high school student. Despite the discrepancies, Plec assures us that book Meredith and show Meredith will share some key qualities. They share much more than a first name.
“In the books, Meredith is Elena’s best friend from the beginning, and she has a very interesting, intriguing relationship with Alaric,” Plec says. In fact, Meredith and Alaric do have a romantic relationship in the books. “It’s fun to be able to take that character and expand her into a new possible love interest for Alaric, who of course has had his hard knocks. He deserves a little love in his life again.”
Book Meredith is unique in that she’s one character who is completely unaffected by Damon’s charms — in fact, she makes him a little bit nervous. Most of Meredith’s scenes are with Alaric and Damon, so viewers can look forward to seeing just how Damon reacts to a little romance getting in the way of his bromance. “She’s a Fell, so she’s got a point of view about how to handle the vampire business in this town,” Plec teases. We’re sure Damon will be thrilled.

TV Guide has the major scoop on the character that will leave Mystic Falls:
I can’t wait for The Vampire Diaries to return! What can you spoil? — Heather
NATALIE: When Klaus decides to take up residence in Mystic Falls, Elena will learn the hard way just how much danger she’s putting her brother in. “There has to be a big change,” executive producer Julie Plec tells us. “What that is, and what she does, is part of the first episode back.” Let’s just say we might not see Jeremy for a while.
Ksite has ten spoiler news for The Vampire Diaries episode 310 “The New Deal and here’s two of them:
7. Shippers will be happy. Which shippers? The CW gods said not to tell… but I can say at least three fan-groups get to see their favorite characters interacting. The choice of names that Klaus lists as “Elena’s loved ones” is also particularly interesting. And some shippers might want to get their screen-capturing software handy.
9. Heartbreaking decisions. At least one character makes a decision affecting someone else, perhaps for their own good.
For number seven, knowing my luck, it’s so not going to be any of the characters I ship. Damn.
There’s a spoiler about Jeremy that is making me more and more convinced that I’m right about my theory.

According to E!Online’s Kristin Dos Santos, Bonnie Bennet‘s new love interest Jamie will be portrayed by Robert Ri’chard:
The Vampire Diaries will be bringing in a new love interest of the bad-boy variety for its resident witch Bonnie (Kat Graham), who was recently burned by her ghost-lovin’ ex Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen), and they’ve recruited a former Veronica Mars star for the gig.
So who’s playing the new guy that’ll catch Bonnie’s eye? We’ve got the exclusive scoop…
Robert Ri’chard (played Mason on Veronica Mars) is taking on the potentially recurring role of Jamie when the hit show returns in January.
Viewers will meet Jamie in episode 12, when Bonnie and Elena (Nina Dobrev) go on a little road trip. Described as handsome (obviously) and a little rough around the edges, Bonnie immediately takes an interest in Jamie. Get it, gurl!
