'The Vampire Diaries': Nina Dobrev teases Elena's decade dance partner, plus -- who else is suiting up?

nina-dobrev-paleyfest.jpgEvery year, "The Vampire Diaries" celebrates the people who actually made it through the year alive with a fun Mystic Falls High Decade Dance, and Season 3 is no different! Episode 20 will bring us back to the dance floor for a little mayhem inspired by the 1920s, which is sure to bring back some memories for Stefan, Rebekah, and Klaus.

Of course, despite that, it's Elena who is always the center of attention at these Mystic Falls soirees. When we caught up with Nina Dobrev at PaleyFest's evening with the cast and executive producer, we had to grill her for spoilers about the big night.

As always, though, Nina is an excellent secret-keeper, and she didn't want to give too much away! "Elena will dance with one of the Salvatores," she teased. "I'll just say that."

Will she and Damon end their little rift and hit the floor, speakeasy style? Or will Stefan finally admit to Elena that he still cares in time for a dance amidst the inevitable chaos?

"You'll have to watch and see!" Nina told us. We know who we hope to see her dance with. Let us know your opinion in the comments below!

As for who else will attend the dance, we can reveal one special guest: Jeremy ( Steven R. McQueen) will return from Denver in time to suit up for the big night! The kid looks good in a jacket and tie. We're not sure whether Bonnie ( Kat Graham) will be on his arm, but she won't be missing the dance.

Graham did reveal that fans will see Bonnie have a love interest who is "decent" at some point. "Yes, you will!" she told fans at the panel. Since there haven't been discussions about Season 4 yet, we can only assume that she'll be getting said love interest soon.

We're hoping for a Bonnie/Jeremy reconciliation -- maybe Denver helped him get over his ghosts? -- but we're also interested to see how she relates to Abby's foster son, Jamie, when he returns for episode 17.

Tune in this Thursday when "The Vampire Diaries" finally ends this excruciating hiatus with one of its best episodes ever. We promise.
