After a painful mid-season hiatus, The Vampire Diaries hits our small screens again on Thursday, January 5, with Season 3, Episode 10, “The New Deal.” Thanks to the lucky folks at KSite TV, which got a first look at TVD’s return episode, we’ve been gifted with 10 teasers about the episode to sink our teeth into before it airs. Apparently there’s lots in store, from ample Bonnie screen time to new characters, but perhaps the most titillating reveal on KSite’s list was this: “Shippers will be very happy.”

Which shippers, you ask? We don’t have specifics, but KSite teased at least three shipper groups will come away from the episode happy as a hybrid on a blood binge. Three! And it sounds like there might even be some steamy skin-on-skin action, as the site says “some shippers might want to get their screen-capturing software handy.”

Then again, the screen capture could be used to document that buzzed about “gut-wrenching” Stelena moment Nina Dobrev teased, but let’s keep things positive here, shall we?
