SPOILER ALERT: Don’t read this post or the comments until you’ve watched Vampire Diaries episode 3.03, “The End of the Affair.”
When asked which Vampire Diaries Season 3 episode is his favorite so far, Paul Wesley immediately responded that the 1920s flashback one was the bee’s knees. And now, after having watched episode 3.03, we understand why. Every. Single. Moment. Was…RIVETING!
The 1920s was a decade filled with ritz, glitz, jazz and speak-easies. However, despite the bright flapper dresses and buoyant Charleston steps, the Roaring Twenties was a dark period for Stefan Salvatore. He was pretty much blacked out for the duration of it. He doesn’t remember a single detail from his psycho ripper phase at all.
He blamed his lack of ’20s memories on all the partying, booze and blood-filled fests. Klaus had a different spin on the “I don’t remember anything” tale though—and Stefan realized this upon discovering a photo of him and Klaus cheesing for the camera. (Ya know, just a couple of blokes in fine tuxes out on the town…)
Apparently, Klaus had compelled Stefan long ago to forget all about the twenties and having met him. Why? Because he and Klaus were once so close that Klaus practically considered him a brother! (Stefan even served as Klaus’ wingman on several occasions by gathering victims for him at bars.)
The real topper though? Meeting Rebekah. Stefan’s beautiful former flame is–wait for it—Klaus’s sister and one of the Originals! And now, due to Klaus removing the fatal stake from her heart, Rebecca is back and ready to rumble. Unfortunately though, Klaus also gave Stefan back his memories—which is good news for Rebekah but heartbreaking news for Elena!
The CW wasn’t kidding when they dubbed Season 3 the “Season of the Originals.” We have a feeling that, despite Klaus’ and Stefan’s serial killer road trip this summer, the fun and terror is only just beginning on TVD…
Were you surprised to find out that Rebekah is an Original, and that Stefan and Klaus were once besties? Is there any hope for Stelena left? Tell us your favorite part of Vampire Diaries episode 3.03!
