The Vampire Diaries: True Lies RECAP

Your best friends dead the entire summer and you have no idea…that makes you a bad friend. Elena Gilbert you’ve legit failed the best friend test…same goes for you Caroline. Caroline and Elena continue their college years until Elena finds out that everything else back home has fallen a part.

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES

Matt, Jeremy and Katherine are trying to stay as far away as possible from Silas…and everyone else in Mystic Falls. Not really sure where this storyline is headed…and I don’t know why Matt and Jer think they can outsmart Silas…they just need to figure this s*** out.

Okay so it’s safe to say this season of The Vampire Diaries has been a slight disappointment…dude Bonnie’s been dead for 4 months and nobody can put the pieces together. Now Jeremy’s back…but he’s kind of boring…and Matt did get a little hotter but he’s still plain old Matt. Except we do find out that the weird magic thing the witch did to him last week was to protect him against Silas’ mind reading powers. So at least Matt has the upper hand…for once.

I just feel like there were so many interesting stories developing last season…and none of them are veering in that direction right now and it’s quite disappointing. Caroline and Klaus? Everyone wanted those two together…Matt belongs with Rebekah…they just complete each other…they are more entertaining together than alone.

Now Elena knows that Stefan is legitimately missing…Caroline spills the beans to Damon and tells him Elena has been worried all summer…like she’s had the feeling that something’s been wrong with her old beau. Clearly she’s still thinking about him. But really who cares about Stefan and Elena…she’s just as boring as everyone else.

Back to Matt and Jer…Silas does catch up to them…he ‘kills’ Matt after he realizes he can’t read his mind. Meanwhile, Jer and Katherine make a run for it. Matt finds himself on ‘the other side’ and Bonnie’s there waiting for him. She gets around. After Bonnie tells him he needs to find the way back to his body to return to life…he puts the pieces together and asks blankly..”If I’m on the other side, then how come you’re here with me?”…as if he’s totally confident Bonnie is really somewhere off in Europe getting belligerent. I really wanted to see Bonnie tell Jeremy she was dead…but we didn’t get to see that scene…even in tonight’s episode the scene cuts and we never get to hear the entire conversation.

Caroline is totally hitting it off with the new guy on campus. That is all.

Somehow Silas got into Elena’s head and she is determined to kill Damon. Damon gets Elena to focus on the pain she’s felt for Stefan…all the worrying she’s gone through this summer. She starts to feel all the pain and hunger Stefan’s felt…and then she’s back to normal….just like that. Cut to Elena packing up her car because she’s done with school!! Your friend has been dead longer than you’ve been in school! This girl is getting pathetic by the minute. Okay so Elena’s leaving, but Caroline promises her she will hold it down on campus…now that she’s got a new man she feels all sexy and strong! You go girl.

Cut to: Damon and Elena making out on the car. Damon confesses to Elena that he’s totally secure with her having dreams about Stefan. She tells him she loves him and they will find Stefan together..she will continue to love him (Damon that is). Cut to: Random forest…Damon, Elena and Caroline’s mom are standing around the vault Stefan was put in at the end of last season. They open the door and find a dead person with a bloody neck, Stefan somehow rescued himself and couldn’t resist the urge. He hasn’t had a bite to eat in 3 months! I’m surprised he’s not dead!

The previews for next episode look entertaining. Stefan’s back in Ripper form and we cannot wait. He’s so much sexier when he’s evil and bloody. Don’t judge.

The Vampire Diaries: DoppleDanger

Last night was the season 5 premiere of The Vampire Diaries…the gang is in college (and by gang I mean Elena and Caroline)…but the drama is pretty much the same. Unlike everyone else on the show, I’m legitimately worried for Stefan..is he alive? can vampires even drown? What was up with the weird flashback moment at the end of the episode? Nobody seems to be worried about Stefan’s disappearance…in fact it took the harsh realization from Stefan’s doppelganger to remind big brother Damon his brother is probably in trouble. Damon was busy all summer with Elena…Caroline was busy listening to Tyler’s excuses over voicemails…and Jeremy spent all his time with ghost Bonnie emailing fake messages to her friends and family. Like did anyone have their s*** together during the summer? We totally get it, it’s boiling over in HotLanta but is that any excuse to play dumb and ignore all the warning signs that your best friend has been dead for weeks…and your ex boyfriend is missing.

vampire_diaries_501_a_l

Bonnie is full out dead…but she still decides to show up for the girls first day at college. This scene was so sad…I still can’t believe she’s really dead and her best friends don’t even know it yet. Speaking of dead girls….Caroline and Elena find out they have a roommate…as if the 3 beds wasn’t a big enough hint? Later, the girls realize their roomy might be a vampire hunter when Caroline finds a bottle of vervaine. They go to a college party to blend in with the normal people, but realize the’re not so normal when they can’t even get into the house party! They weren’t formally invited in…so they legit spent the night pretending to party outside. The party is interrupted when a body comes flying out of the upstairs window…there’s blood all over…and the girls realize this is their beloved roomy…and it looks like a vampire kill. It’s important to note that the hottest guy ever totally tried to hit on Caroline in the beginning, but since she’s so faithful to Tyler…she didn’t even cop a glance. Rumours are swirling that this new hot guy might be the vampire on campus…and he’s probably the one that bit the girl. Who knows…but the girls are about to have the college experience of their eternal lives.

OMG Matt is like pure bad boy now that he’s lost his virginity and had a threesome. He was roaming around Europe all summer with Rebecca…and they couldn’t resist adding another vampire to the mix. Rebecca returns home with Matty but she leaves because she has to switch over to the other show The Originals. The vampire that they had a threesome with shows up in Mystic Falls and does some weird witchy spell thing to Matty…don’t really know what that is but oh well. I really liked Rebecca and Matt together, it’s a shame she has to leave TVD, but hopefully she’ll make a few more appearances.

Damon is busy taking care of Jeremy. He doesn’t do a good job because Stefan’s doppleganger shows up and is looking for Katherine who is now in human form. Silas (Stefan’s doppleganger) wants to kill Katherine…but Damon saves the day in time. He asks Jeremy to whisk her away and protect her. Silas makes a deal with Damon, if he brings Katherine back he’ll let Damon know where his brother is.  Jeremy doesn’t get too far before Damon calls him and demands he come back. Katherine overhears and sketches out, the car goes off the road and rams into a pole. Jeremy is hurt bad, somehow Katherine makes it out of the car and disappears into the night. Damon arrives to the scene, Jeremy tells him Katherine escaped, but Damon says he doesn’t really care. Does this mean Damon doesn’t really want to find Stefan? It does solve his problems because this way he can be with Elena without feeling sorry for Stefan.

The_Vampire_Diaries_3

Damon refuses to tell Elena anything major happened while she was out partying. Caroline listens to another voicemail message from Tyler…he tells her he’s really helping this wolfpack in the mountains so he’s going to stay and not go to school. Basically this means they’re over…it’s time for Caroline to meet hot new guy that possibly a vampire. But also, Caroline and Klaus…I wish they were together!! During the ‘end of summer’ party in Mystic Falls, Bonnie’s dad (the mayor) does his speech on stage. Then Silas walks up and literally slices Bonnie’s dads throat in front of everyone…including ghost Bonnie who was listening to her dad’s speech!!! Silas demands that everyone follow what he says and he needs everyone to keep an eye out for Katherine. Which is basically Elena…so wtf is going to happen?

TVD Season Finale RECAP

Last night’s RECAP of CW’s The Vampire Diaries.

Okay so this fourth season started off with a bang, we jump into a new world where Elena isn’t human anymore, she’s dealing with becoming a vampire, she loses a bunch of people along the way and finds herself in tight leather pants, a new hairdo and her humanity switch turned off. Aside from the world of Elena, we have a bunch of other plot lines that I think proved to the audience…this show could go on without the main three. Immediately, I was drawn to the Caroline and Klaus story. I really thought they would show much more of the two throughout the season, but of course Elena has to steal the thunder and Caroline and Klaus fell through the cracks. So we all know that the CW has given the green light for a spin off called The Originals, which will include Klaus, Elijah, Rebecca (unless she’s in Europe with Matt) and Klaus’ baby mama. Yes, even though he got a werewolf girl knocked up, he’s still madly in love with Caroline and it’ll be interesting to see how they work with her in between the two shows. But back to TVD, Elena is enjoying her down time with Jeremy and Alaric…in a cemetery? How ironic.

happy times

So before we get off track, because there’s so much to talk about we should sum up last night’s events. Everyone is back from the dead, or at least until the veil rises again. Bonnie is dealing with the fact that she’s dead, but because everyone supernatural is still alive, she’s still there- kind of. Rebecca is dealing with her ex boyfriend/vampire hunter…Matt is strapped to a bomb plate thing, Rebecca refuses to leave his side. She promises to show him the world, take him wherever he wants to go. With the camera revolving around Matt and Rebecca, we don’t realize that she’s taken him off the bomb plate and placed herself on it. She begs Matt to run as fast as he can, she will be able to withstand the explosion but he obviously won’t. Matt runs off and Rebecca jumps off the plate and makes a run for it.

Silas and the cure have been the two main forces of this season and I have to say I was disappointed when we thought Silas was dead. First of all, Bonnie killing Silas that easily in the caves was b*******. The entire season they’re trying to figure out how to kill this guy and she does it after a quick pep talk from her granny? It just didn’t make sense. And then, all season everyone’s looking for this stupid cure, and once they have it, nobody can decide whose going to take it? So throughout last night’s episode, they were trying to make us think Damon would have to take it, or Stefan would decide he’s going to take it…like how about nobody takes it and we just go on with the damn show. You know?

The Irish vampire hunter shoots Damon with wooden bullets laced with werewolf venom, Klaus is all the way in New Orleans, so they only option they had was for Damon to take the cure and live. He doesn’t take it, Klaus comes back…of course he needs to see Caroline graduate and deliver his final monologue.

Damon Dead

The graduation scene was definitely one of my season favorites. I think for shows like The Vampire Diaries, where you’re dealing with supernatural problems, graduation seems so miniscule but it’s actually a beautiful moment seeing these kids do what every normal high school kid gets to do. In Buffy the Vampire Slayer, graduation was one of the biggest scenes in the entire series, it was a really powerful scene. The gang is at the Mystic Falls HS graduation, surprisingly everyone has made it. Bonnie is tripping out because she knows she’s dead but she refuses to tell anyone else. Caroline is in her moment of glory, she is beaming and so happy that they’re all moving on with the next chapter of their lives…you know the usual grad speech. The entire time Bonnie is tearing up because she knows she’s not going to enjoy any of it. The entire season Bonnie annoyed me, I really was waiting for her time to come but the grad scene was really hard to get through.

graduation

Stefan has his hopes up, now that Elena is back she might take him back. He says he would take her back in a heartbeat but it all depends on what she wants. Lexi tells Stefan to leave Mystic Falls and enjoy his life, she’s not the only soul mate he’s going to have. Elena and Damon finally have the scene all Delena fans were waiting for. Elena admits she’s in love with Damon, pure and simple. Damon is still in love with her, and now that there’s no sire bond, they can finally have their moment. The entire time Stefan overhears them talking, he’s obviously heartbroken but he now has his answer, he should move on with his life. Elena asks Stefan to take the cure, the only other person that sucks at being a vampire is him. The scene ends there, but towards the end of the episode it jumps back to this scene, Stefan gives the cure back to Elena and tells her he did everything so that she could have the choice of being a vampire or human.

Caroline and Klaus have their moment, of course he comes back to give Caroline her graduation present. He tells her it’s something she’ll want more than anything else. He tells her Tyler is free to return to Mystic Falls, he won’t chase him anymore. Caroline is super happy, but what does this mean for K and C? Klaus tells Caroline that he understands Tyler is her first love, but he knows he’s going to be her last…eventually she will understand that. Best line by Klaus…EVER, and he’s had some good lines!

Matt and Rebecca are safe at home, Matt agrees to join Rebecca on her world adventure tour…he’s got nothing lined up next year so why not?

In the last 5 minutes, we know the veil is about to go up, so at any time our favorite dead people could be gone forever. Damon is in his room having a drink with Alaric, Alaric congratulates him on finally getting the girl. Damon looks down to pour himself a drink and by the time he looks back up…Alaric is gone. So sad! Stefan is in the car with Lexi, they’re having ‘the soul mate’ discussion, when Stefan admits he needs to leave for a while, the camera zooms out and we see an empty seat beside Stefan.

Jeremy decides to see Bonnie in his final minutes. She’s back at the cave doing the spell. They have a moment, and then Bonnie realizes her spell has worked. Her spell to bring back Jeremy (which killed her) did go work. Jeremy is thrilled that he’s alive, he runs to Bonnie to give her a hug and realizes he can’t feel her arms on him. He asks her what she’s done, she says it’s okay, she has her grams now..and the witches…and he can see ghosts so they can talk everyday. She begs Jeremy to lie to Elena and Caroline and tell them she’s away visiting her mother. She says for once her friends are okay…she doesn’t want to take that away from them. How noble.

Katherine and Elena have a huge fight in the halls of the high school. It looks like Katherine is about to kill Elena…the reason is kind of blurry but whatever. Elena pulls out the cure and shoves it in Katherine’s mouth. ‘Have a nice human life Katherine’ Elena mumbles out.

ElenaKatherine

In the end, Stefan drops by the cliff to dump Silas’ body in the river. While unpacking the bag he realizes there’s just pieces of broken stone in the bag. He turns around and there’s Silas in Elena’s body. Silas explains to Stefan that there was a doppelganger created for Silas. Stefan assumes it’s another one of Elena…so what there’s 3 of them now? And then the camera pans to the car window…and we see who Silas really is….Stefan!

Stefan car window

Silas locks Stefan into the safe that was meant for Silas, pushes it off the cliff and into the water with Stefan inside! So whose going to realize the real Stefan is missing?? I have to admit it was an impressive ending!

What did you guys think of the season finale?

 

And now a moment of silence for Bonnie Bennett.

The Vampire Diaries: RECAP

So we were extremely excited about this week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries after last weeks finale with Delena left us surprisingly hot and bothered. We found out that the reason the Delena situation is happening, might be because Elena is sired to Damon. We don’t know if Damon did it on purpose or when the sire bond happened, but some of our questions were answered in this episode.

Stefan and Caroline are hard at work discussing all the reasons why Elena could be sired to Damon…this all the while Elena and Damon continue to get down and dirty. I have to say, I really don’t like Elena when she’s with Damon! I mean I was getting a little bored with her and Stefan, but I think it was too soon for her to jump in the sack with D. It’s the morning after and Elena has to get to school, but when Stefan returns home in the morning, all Elena can say to him is ‘See you in class’. Really biatch?

Elena and Damon

Finally, everyone’s back at school,Bonnie is alive again, and Elena wants a girls night really, really bad. With an unlimited supply of expensive champagne Bonnie, Caroline and Elena start off their party night on the wrong foot with unopened bottles of champagne and empty glasses. Who does that? Meanwhile, Damon and Stefan have a boys night in NOLA, because apparently, Damon sired another vampire girl back in the 40s.

Turns out, Damon sired a vampire chica who was in love with him before he left New Orleans, he had told her to count all the bricks from the houses around New Orleans until his return. Sure enough, when Stefan and Damon found her on the corner Damon had told her to be, she had spent over 7 decades counting all the bricks. Cray, right? Damon hadn’t realized that he had sired her, or how literal his sire powers were. They head over to the witch store to figure out how to get rid of the sire bond. The witch in New Orleans admits she doesn’t practice witchcraft anymore, but another form of dark magic called ‘expression’. Unfortunately, the sire bond wasn’t really a curse, so it can’t be broken, Damon has to literally tell whoever’s sired to him to forget about him, and move on with their life without him. Of course now it’s not a matter of what Damon needs to do, it’s if he wants to do it. Finally, the love of his life- Elena, is in love with him, he doesn’t’ want to give up what they have, but reality sets in that she might not really be in love with him.

Girls night gets even worse when Elena decides to take the conversation into Damon’s luxurious bathroom. While sitting in his tub and secretly wishing her was there with her, Caroline blurts out that she’s making a huge mistake with Damon, but at least she hasn’t slept with him. Elena’s pissed that Caroline thinks she can tell her who to date so she decides to come out and tell the girls she’s already slept with Damon. Bonnie and Caroline are speechless, Elena storms out of the bathroom, and that bathtub will never be the same again. Caroline has diarrhea of the mouth because she also blurts out that Elena might be sired to Damon…and explains her and Stefan’s theories. Unfortunately, things get even worse because one of Tyler’s hybrids decide to kidnap Caroline.

Possibly the most randomest scene ever, the werewolves are trying to work against Tyler for some reason? However it doesn’t get too far because Tyler shows up and saves the day. Then all the hybrids awkwardly bow down to him..I guess they’re sired to him now? CONFUSED. Also, still trying to figure out what’s going on between awkward professor and Tyler’s werewolf girl friend.

Damon returns from his quick trip, Elena mentions that she knows about the sire bond. She tells him that she’s not sired and that everything she’s feeling is real. Damon wants to believe her but he knows something is up with her, he definitely has the ability to sire other vampires because he did it with the girl in NOLA. The episode ends off awkwardly as Elena starts touching Damon and begins to convince him that everything they’re feeling for one another is real.

Merp. We’ll have to wait and see with next week’s mid season finale.

TVD: The Sire Curse RECAP

So we’re back with an all new episode of The Vampire Diaries. Finally, the episode of the season Delena fans have been waiting for- Elena comes to terms with her feelings for Damon…and they get it on. It’s been a slow season so far, the last 3 episodes have been lamer than lame, but Julie Plec has once again redeemed herself with this amazing new episode.

A lot happens in 46 minutes…so let’s start from the beginning.

What would a great episode be without a typical Mystic Falls event? The Miss Mystic Falls pageant is always a good episode in TVD history…and this one didn’t disappoint. Matt played the charming white knight to April who was confused as to why her real date Jeremy didn’t show up.

MATT

Jeremy is officially a vampire hunter and is having urges to kill other vampires, including his sister Elena. Luckily for him, April doesn’t see him seductively starring at his sister or she would’ve thought it was another kind of obsession…awkward. Stefan and Elena are no longer together since she told him her vampire alter ego has feelings for Damon. Stefan is determined to find a cure for ‘Vampireism’ and ultimately get his human Elena back. He forces Jeremy to kill another vampire so that the hunter tattoos on his arm reveal the answer to where the cure is ‘hidden’. What they don’t know is that the more Jeremy kills, the more he loses himself and becomes the vampire hunter. He attacks Elena at the Miss Mystic Falls pageant, but thankfully Stefan shows up to save the day.

Jeremy and Elena

Caroline and Klaus, they’re relationship just puts a smile on my face because they are so cute together. Plus, if Caroline can change the most evil man in the world…then there’s definitely a story there to tell. Klaus asks Caroline to the pageant since he thinks her and Tyler are broken up. They’re not really, they’re just faking it, so Caroline has no choice but to agree. Tyler shows up with weird Werewolf girl who it turns out is secretly working with the hot new professor to gather a bunch of hybrids who have broken the sire bond from Klaus. Tyler is mucho jealous when he sees this: See Below.

Screen Shot 2012-11-30 at 10.58.05 AM

They look so cute together! Caroline asks Klaus if he ever wishes he could be human again. He answers the questions 23 minutes later with a story about a Hummingbird’s heart beating as fast as a machine gun…all the while Tyler listens in on their conversation with his vampire creepin’ skills. He’s not buying any of it.

Stefan and Elena talk it out, but there’s not much to talk about since Elena refuses to find a cure for ‘Vampireism’ if it means Jeremy has to give up his humanity. She understands that Stefan wants the old Elena back, the Elena that was in love with him. But, she’s a vampire now…and she’s in love with Damon..and there’s really nothing Stefan can do about it. It was literally the saddest scene- ever.

Elena moves out of the home she shares with Jeremy. Really who pays the mortgage and utility bills? Matt moves in…and Elena moves into the Salvatore residence. Stefan offers to spend the night somewhere else since most likely Damon and Elena will be getting it on. That’s way too fast BTW.

Delena

Stefan goes over to Caroline’s to take a few shots. There’s this cute/weird relationship forming between C and S over the last few episodes, it’s almost as if something is going to happen between the two, and I would totally want that to happen- except I want C and K to happen more. While they’re chatting, Elena and Damon are busy getting it on and listening to Ed Sheeran. Caroline and Stefan are listening to the same song, but Caroline freaks out when she discovers something. It’s not everyday a vampire can sire another vampire…but it definitely isn’t impossible. Caroline wonders if Elena is sired to Damon…since they’ve been acting like the same person since she’s become a vampire. Once Caroline says it, Stefan realizes it might be true…and that there might be a way to get Elena back without finding a cure for ‘Vampireism’. Sounds good to me!

**Bonnie is still missing. She is presumed to be off somewhere trying to get her magic back up and running.**

 

TVD FUTURE INTERNS

So, I posted our TVD Future Intern video a few days ago and it has received so much love and support I cannot thank you guys enough.

Our idea for making this video came up when both my classmate and I were thinking of ways to apply to the Vampire Diaries production as interns. Unfortunately, we only found links to the production offices which really wasn’t what we wanted to do. (I want to intern in post-production she wants to be an on set PA)

So, since we are film students and we know how to use a camera we decided to make a short video- put it on YouTube and hopefully get the attention of the Vampire Diaries Showrunner Julie Plec and the rest of the crew.

Here’s the best part- she literally watched the video within 10 hours of us posting it on YouTube!!!! It was awesome- I almost passed out at work when I found out. It was definitely something to be proud of.

Now that she’s seen the video- we really need her to take us seriously and really consider us as TVD Future Interns!! So, what I need from all you readers is to check out our video below…LIKE it…TWEET it…RETWEET it…whatever your heart desires!

You can follow us on Twitter @thetashaIC and my classmate @sparksvicky. And if you really want to be amazing- you should tweet @julieplec and tell her how amazing our video is! Oh, and Tweet @chrisgrismer I heard he’s pretty cool to! 🙂

Thanks guys!

Vampire Diaries: Alaric The Killer

Last night on Vampire Diaries a lot was explained with most of the cast trying to figure out what in God’s name is wrong with Alaric. Obviously, the ring that he wears, the same ring that has saved his life numerous times is causing him to act out in violence. Basically, the ring makes him do all these killer things including fulfilling a hit list that has all the Mystic Falls council members.

Bonnie’s mom is having a hard transition becoming a vampire, and at the end of the episode Caroline convinces her to stay in Mystic Falls, but unfortunately she decides to leave Bonnie and her fake brother anyways.

Damon uses his secret sexy powers to find out what Rebecca is really up to. His old friend from back in the day ‘Sage’ returns to Mystic Falls to find her soulmate Finn- Klaus’ original vampire brother. After Damon gets Rebecca into bed, Sage does some weird mind reading thing and finds out the real reason Rebecca wants to know more about the history of Mystic Falls. It’s because of the White Oak Tree which is the only thing that can kill an original vampire. After finding this out, Damon does some research of his own and sifts through old history books. He actually finds out that the entire white oak tree was used to create a main bridge in the town. Basically, Damon and Stefan have an unlimited amount of white oak tree to kill the originals.

Stefan and Elena have another moment, when Alaric accidentally (well not really an accident) attempts to kill his girlfriend, Elena comes to the rescue, Stefan can barely get close because he’s afraid he’s going to suck all her blood. Once he sees Elena’s face, he believes in himself and it’s such a beautiful moment for the two. Nonetheless, Stefan can only stand the smell of blood for a few seconds, and then he’s gone. Elena gets Bonnie to cast a weird spell on Alaric so he doesn’t try to kill anymore council members. It’ll be interesting to see how Alaric will end this season, a lot of people are debating whether or not he’s going to die, because really, we all know he’s landed a pilot for September on the CW.
