The Vampire Diaries came off of a strong second season to arrive at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con. Much of the cast, along with the show's two executive producers arrived in Ballroom 20 to address the thousands gathered there.

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.


After a highlight reel from season 2, there was a single scene from season 3: Elena walking in on a very naked and soapy Damon.

  • Joseph Morgan (Klaus)
  • Nina Dobrev (Elena/Katherine)
  • Julie Plec (executive producer)
  • Ian Somerhalder (Damon)
  • Kevin Williamson (executive producer)
  • Paul Wesley (Stefan)
  • Candice Accola (Caroline)

Whose deaths were the most surprising and hardest?
Candice Accola: "Kayla Ewell, because it was the first big death."

Paul Wesley: "Everyone's died... I think I'm mourning my own death the most... I thought the Rose death was very emotional."

Kevin Williamson: "Kayla. Vicky... And then Aunt Jenna was very hard."

Ian Somerhalder: "I remember reading when Vicky dies, that was heartbreaking."

Julie Plec: "I still get hate mail for killing Mason Lockwood."

Nina Dobrev: "When Sara Canning and when Kayla left..."

Joseph Morgan: "I think Sara Canning dying was really sort of sad... I guess the most surprising was Jeremy. I mean, again?"


Have we seen the last of Elijah?
Kevin Williamson: "Oh no!"
And he's pissed off. And possibly embarrassed by getting killed repeatedly by that dagger.


Will Damon be looking for Stefan?
Ian Somerhalder: "Damon's kind of not to happy about the way life has worked out for him at this point."

Kevin Williamson: "It's one of those reluctant hero stories."


How dark will Stefan get?
Paul Wesley: "I don't know... I think the whole Ripper Stefan thing is really interesting."


Why does Klaus want Stefan so badly?
Joseph Morgan: "I think we're going to find a lot more about the motive and history of him taking Stefan this season."


Which is more fun, Elena or Katherine?
Nina Dobrev: "I get the best of both worlds... They're both so much fun... They're both so challenging and so awesome. They will kill me one day... I can get away with a lot more when I'm Katherine on set."


Where did Katherine go?
Julie Plec: "She's in Hawaii, waiting for the very special Hawaiian episode maybe."


What's it like for Caroline to be violent?
Candice Accola: "So I get to kick a werewolf in the crotch and go kill two cops and then go, 'Hey Mom!'"


Will Elena and Damon date in the next season?
Julie Plec: "Katherine seems to know more about what it's like to care about both Salvatore brothers... She's not saying it for no reason."


Other little bits from the panel:
  • Everyone wants to play Klaus, except for Candice Accola: "I like being Caroline!"
  • Paul Wesley thinks that Katherine's walk looks like"swimming through Jell-O."
  • When asked which Salvatore brother she would pick, Nina Dobrev replied,"The beauty of the situation is that I don't have to choose."
  • Justin Bieber wanted to be on **The Vampire Diaries.
