Did you see it? Did you see the Vampire Diaries finale? Did you, did you, did you? (If you didn't you should probably skip on a bit because we're about to discuss it.)
So Season 2 went out with a bang. Stefan (Paul Wesley) saved Damon (Ian Somerhalder) but only by agreeing to drink human blood and go on a killing bender with Klaus. Damon and Elena (Nina Dobrev) actually kissed (even though Damon was about to die)! And Jeremy did die and then got brought back to life and can now see the ghosts(?) of his two ex-girlfriends Anna and Vicki. We love how deliciously twisted everything is getting.
But what's in store for Season 3? Well producer's Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec have revealed some Season 3 details already and we've got all the info on Damon and Elena's burgeoning relationship. Here are all the hints...
1. We could meet Caroline's father
Kevin Williamson in an interview with Candice Accola who plays Caroline said, "Yes I do see a world into which he will break onto the scene eventually and will play out the dynamic between father and daughter as well as how the sheriff responds to her ex husbands. What does he do once he finds out he's got a vampire for a daughter... maybe he'll come in with some surprises of his own."
2. Stefan is going to be a very, very bad boy
Julie Plec told TV Line: "Early in the season we decided that would be the path we’d take by the end of the season, so everything we did with him was trying to lay the groundwork for the shift in his journey. We are beyond excited about the opportunities here. For Stefan, it’s never as black-and-white as “Good Stefan” and “Bad Stefan”; it’s Stefan struggling with this thing that overpowers him so significantly, that no matter what he tries to do to break himself out of it, it still rules him.
"And it rules him in a way that it never really ruled Damon. Watching Stefan fight that, and perhaps continue to get overpowered by it, is a story that story could go on for a long time. There’s a lot of great opportunity there."
We've got a feeling Stefan's going to do A LOT of killing...

3. Expect new supernatural creatures
When asked by Candice if there'll be creatures other than werewolves, vampires and witches, Kevin Williamson said, "Yes but it will only happen when it's appropriate."
4. Klaus ain't going nowhere...
As we guessed, we've not seen the last of Klaus. Apparently his plans extend far beyond the sun and moon curse. Kevin told the New York Post:
"We have a huge twist already planned for the first episode that explains why Klaus was so interested in Stefan. There’s another element to Klaus and what he’s about that you don’t know yet."
3. There'll be other originals too
Kevin said, "We’re going to find out who they are, what they’re about, how the Salvatores are intertwined with them... There’s a big story here. There’s a whole third season of plot we get to mine through these fascinating characters. They’ll show up and hopefully be just as delicious as Klaus & Elijah turned out to be."?Uh... delicious or terrifying?!

4. Can Jeremy see dead people?
When asked if Anna and Vicki are ghosts Kevin said, "No. But if you are thinking ghosts, that is the appropriate place to start." Erm now we're confused.
Julie Plec told Inside TV: "All I can say about that is: As Bonnie was told when she was tapping into that kind of magic to do something that goes against the laws of nature, there will be consequences. We’re just getting a slight tease of what those consequences are. For her, the unimagined consequences were worth it.
"Now if Vicki and Anna end up sticking around and remaining in Jeremy’s world in whatever way it is that they’re appearing, then in addition to supernatural consequences, obviously, there’s gonna be some romantic consequences as well. We’re taking the love triangle to a whole ‘nother level. Without a doubt, this is a story that is teeing up for our audience a whole new element of what we’re going to be doing on this show."
5. Alaric gets a bigger role
Julie Plec told TV Line: "We made a promise to Matt Davis to take Alaric and give him a good kick in the ass, and really make better use of that character. We wanted to give him a stronger point-of-view and a richer on-screen life, and this is just one of many things that we hope to be able to do."

7. Are Elena and Damon going to release all that sexual tension at last?!
Kevin Williamson told Candice: "We're gonna watch and sort of see how their friendship, or whatever they're meant to be, progresses and where it goes. I think it's going to be a very interesting storyline, it's going to be explosive."
He told the New York Post, "Damon is in a place where he never wanted to be. If he didn’t like playing hero this year, what’s going to happen when he’s forced to do the right thing and save his brother? For Elena, after two seasons of loving her as a strong female figure, I think the audience will now finally hopefully be receptive seeing her buy into what Katherine said, that it’s ok for Elena to love both Stefan and Damon."
Julie meanwhile has said on Elena and Damon: "Season three is gonna be about exploring what it means to her, what it means to Damon, and certainly what it means to the Damon-Elena-Stefan relationship."
Elena and Damon are SO going to get it on, aren't they?
What do you think about Season 3 from these hints? What do you want to happen? Do you want Elena and Damon to get together or are you team Stefan?
