‘The Vampire Diaries’ season 3: a shopping mall shoot?

Is this a new location?

The Vampire Diaries” has chosen to shoot a variety of places over the first two seasons, so could a shopping mall be next on the horizon? It’s hard to say for sure, but we can at least confirm that series star Nina Dobrev has spent some time shooting in such a location.

In a new post on her Twitter account Tuesday, the actress talked a bit about being such a location:

“Nothing more dangerous than shooting at a shopping mall. With Time off in between takes, bank account amount quickly¬†decreasing… Yikes!”

Granted, it is possible in theory that Nina was there shooting for another project of some variety — but “TVD” has been shooting pretty much all week in Atlanta. Could this be Nina getting to take a break from searching for Stefan, or could this even be somehow related to the story? It is nice for producers to include little touches of realism here and there — just to remind us that in the midst of all this craziness, Elena is still an 18-year old girl who is going to try to live a normal life … at least occasionally.

Do you think this would be an appropriate scene for the show?
