Out with the old, in with the new! The new year brings ch-ch-ch-changes to Mystic Falls — and not all of them involve death and destruction. The Vampire Diaries returns with Season 3, Episode 10, “The New Deal” and Zap2it has some major scoop on what’s to come for our crew of (mostly) supernaturals.

Let’s start with the good news — for Delena fans, at least: Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) reportedly take their romance to new heights when one of them makes “a major decision that has to do with their relationship and their relationship with Stefan.” Get ready for a Delena rollercoaster, ‘cause the pair is reportedly going to stay hot-and-heavy for the next few episodes.

Now for the impending doom: Someone leaves Mystic Falls, possibly forever. No word yet on who, but it’s reportedly pretty heartbreaking. Zap2it writer Carina Mackenzie did tweet a sad theory: She’s convinced Tyler (Michael Trevino) is a goner after Season 3. Say it ain’t so!
