September 29, 2011 – The third episode of The Vampire Diaries, titled The End of the Affair is a big game-changing event in the series.
After an advanced screening of the super anticipated episode, several media outlets have been spilling some new hints as to what fans can expect as things take a major turn.
‘Vampire Diaries’: Julie Plec reveals new hints for ep 3 ‘The End of the Affair’
To begin with, Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Klaus (Joseph Morgan) are going to become closer and we will find out why that is. We are going to learn what awoke Klaus’ interest in Stefan and how his past shaped him into what he is now.
As a result of this, we are also going to see a small glimpse of humanity in Klaus.
“We’re peeling away a few of the layers and starting to see his humanity and morality and where that need to be destructive came from.” exec-producer Julie Plec said in a Q&A segment after the screening.

However, she also added that “the hope is that he’ll stay bad,” so we shouldn’t expect a Damon-esque transformation any time soon…
Another big change happening in The End of the Affair is that Elena (Nina dobrev) is going to finally realize the depth of Stefan’s darkness and will have her heart broken when Stefan painly “abuses” her in an emotional way. This is where Elena decides to stop letting men dictate her life anymore.
Luckily, she will have an extra-supportive Damon (Ian Somerhalder) at her side, helping her through her pain. This could be another small push towards her newfound feelings for our fave bad-boy vamp, however…

As we already learned in earlier reports, new character Rebekah (guest star Claire Holt) is going to be introduced as the spoiled and devious ex-girlfriend of Stefan. She’ll first make an appearance in a 1920’s flashback with Stefan, and later we’ll meet her in present day as well, and she’ll be sticking around for a while.
Another twist that develops into a new storyline is that we come to find out Elena’s protective necklace is much more than what we thought. The mysterious piece of jewelry is going to become a new target for Rebekah to seek. Somethign else we’ll be learning about in The End of the Affair.
