THE VAMPIRE DIARIES might be on Summer hiatus on The CW, but here at ASSIGNMENT X, we’ve been thinking a lot about what should happen next season. This show has had lots of twist and turns and ins and outs during the second season, even more than the first, so it’s to be expected that there will be some shake-ups for the new year.
Here’s a list of things we’d like to see happen on the popular romance/supernatural genre show, check ‘em out and see if you agree with what we think should happen, or feel free to chime in with things you are dying to see happen in the town of Mystic Falls!
1. DAMON & ELENA BECOME SOMETHING MORE
With Stefan (Paul Wesley) out of town for the start of the new season, it’s time to heat things up between Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev). There has always been this love/hate relationship between the two, and now that all they have is each other, they should come together and become the hot torrid couple that fans have been writing fic about since season one!
2. BONNIE BECOMES AN UBER-WITCH
Bonnie (Katerina Graham) has had her powers increasing exponentially since about the middle of the first season. She tapped into enough power to almost kill one of the original vampires, and she’s helped sway life and death. It’s time for her to really come into her power and be able to do crazy amounts of magic. We need to see this character cut loose and have some episodes featuring her and her abilities now!
3. THE RETURN OF KLAUS & ELIJAH
While the idea of bringing back a previous season’s Big Bads is usually frowned upon especially if there is no season in between, these extremely good looking bad boys should come back and party in Mystic Falls a bit more. Klaus (Joseph Morgan) wasn’t really in that many episodes, and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) had the bad luck to keep getting killed almost every other episode he was in, so let’s bring them back and see what they can actually do now that they aren’t trying to break a cruse anymore.
4. CAROLINE AND TYLER AS A COUPLE?
It’s just a thought since we were heading that way during the last season. As much as I love Matt (Zach Roerig), it just seems that Caroline (Candice Accola) and Tyler (Michael Trevino) matched up a lot better in terms of personality, situation, and oh yeah…the whole supernatural creature thing. It would be interesting to see where a vampire and a werewolf would end up on the series and how long this ROMEO & JULIET style romance could last.
5. MORE SHIRTLESS JEREMY
It seems that in Ian Somerhalder’s contract he has to be half naked at least once in every episode. I think that it’s only fair since Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) has become such a hunky boy next door, that he should have to show his body a bit more. I’m pretty such about 99.9% of the viewing audience would appreciate it.
6. MATT & THE SHERIFF HOOK UP
Since it’s kind of become clear that Matt and Caroline aren’t really going to live happily ever after, I think Matt should hook-up with Caroline’s mom and one of Mystic Falls’ resident MILFS Sheriff Liz Forbes (Marguerite MacIntyre). She’s an attractive older woman and he’s a wholesome younger man…anyone smell THE GRADUATE here? OK so it’s a wacky idea, but the Sheriff needs some love too, and why not Matt? He needs a mother figure in his life so what the hell; it’s a win win.
7. MORE SUPERNATURAL CRITTERS
As the world of Mystic Falls expands it would be nice to see some more supernatural characters come onto the show. Think about how many different kinds of critters have been incorporated into other genre shows like TRUE BLOOD; they seem to work just fine with different things that go bump in the night showing up, so let’s see more on VAMPIRE DIARIES.
8. FEWER PARTIES
It’s been talked about on shat boards and discussed by people who criticize the show (I even mentioned it in a review or two) that the series has an overabundance of parties and events for such a small town. Let’s have the town gather for reasons other than huge parties or dances. There’s got to be other ways to get characters together in one spot besides having a ‘Founder’s Day’ event every other week.
9. ACTUAL SEX
The show teases a lot with the sexual chemistry between its various characters, but there never really seems to be much sex going on on-screen. While I’m not saying the show has to delve into soft core porn, BUFFY had a love scene with her and Angel in the early days (OK bad example…look how that ended). It would just be nice to see some real intimacy between all of these pretty people instead of the cut away from love scenes that the series so often does. Turn up the heat a little.
10. HOW ABOUT SOME CROSSOVERS CW?
So you’re a successful cable network, with a few genre shows. Have a crossover and drive up the ratings. Have The Winchester Boys come over from SUPERNATURAL and hunt down some big bad ugly critter that has fled to Mystic Falls. People love stuff like that, even if it’s only for one episode or for a cameo. Why not mix worlds that seem to go pretty well together?
