Happy Anniversary, Vampire Diaries: What Are Your Favorite Episodes From the First Three Years?
Time flies when you’re vamping. The Vampire DiariesSeason 1 premiere was three years ago today, September 10, 2009. Back then we had no idea how much we’d grow to love this show, but it’s so full of twists, one-liners, heartbreak, and, of course, hotness, how could we not?
In honor of the occasion, executive producer Julie Plec tweeted her favorite episodes. Let us know if you agree!
Season 1, Episode 3, Friday Night Bites: “for our first understanding of who Damon was and who was he going to become.”
Season 1, Episode 5, You're Undead to Me: “for Mads Langer's 'Beauty of the Dark' montage, brought to you by @TheJoshuaButler, ending with 'What are you?'”
Season 1, Episode 6, Lost Girls: “for @kevwilliamson at his finest: Damon and Vicki.”
Season 1, Episode 9, History Repeating: “because Marcos directed it w zero prep during the darkest time of Season 1 and it rocked, & for football brother-bonding.”
Season 1, Episode 17, Let the Right One In: “because it proved our crew could do anything -- but that they would kill us if we ever made them do it again.”
Season 1, Episode 22, Founder's Day: “because we made a feature film in 10 days. And because of that whole Katherine thing....”
“Honorary mention: [Season 1, Episode 18] Under Control: because of getting to watch@paulwesley try not to lose his Rippah sh*t. And for Uncle John and Paramore.”
