Vampires & Witches: The CW Blood Line

For more Vampire/Witch/Werewolf talk follow The Hollywood Heroine on Twitter!

This season, The CW has brought us a coffin full of Vampire/Witch/Supernatural TV shows that have taken over the prime time spots. Theres The Vampire Diaries which started it’s fifth season this fall, and the first season of it’s sister show- The Originals.

I have to say, both shows started off slow, The Originals was highly anticipated but it hasn’t lived up to my expectations…until now. Even with The Vampire Diaries season opener, I was left questioning the outcome of this season. The first few episodes weren’t up to par, characters seemed like they had lost their ‘spunk’…we lost major characters who seemed promising…and I think overall the story was just stuck.

With last week’s episode…that all changed.  “For Whom the Bells Toll” was the best episode of the season- hands down. It had that authentic/original feel The Vampire Diaries had for so many seasons. They took us back to high school- all the way back to where Stefan and Elena met…it was so entertaining.

 

Here’s the thing, I think everyone was so excited for a Damon and Elena moment. Last season, she was going through a lot of trauma in her life and I think Damon was right for her, at that time. But now that the skies have figuratively  ‘cleared’ she’s seeing the truth…and the truth is that Stefan is her soulmate. And I’m totally fine with that.

Since the ancient witch fried his brains out, Stefan doesn’t remember who he was and has no idea who everyone is. Which means Elena’s job is to bring his memory back…even if that means going back to when they first fell in love. But what I really loved, was when Stefan has this new mindset. He discovers that he used to be with Elena, but now she’s with his brother…he realizes how f***** up it is and decides to leave! He’s ready to move on, to move out of the house…and I’m totally loving this new brain fried Stefan. It’s funny he never ssaid it before, how messed up this situation is that the love of his life is now sleeping with his brother! In fact nobody every came out and said it, but now that he’s a different guy…he’s not taking it.

Also, now that Tyler’s back, will there be a Stefan and Caroline romance? Because I totally want that to happen? What do you guys think?

Last night’s episode of The Originals proved how devoted Klaus is to his baby mama. I love him as a daddy! It was such an interesting episode, it took us back in time to when the witches had their ‘harvest’ ritual…basically a way to slaughter young witches so the older ones could keep their witch powers. Davina explains all of this to Elijah, she was the only young witch who made it out alive because of Marcel. It explains why she’s so devoted to him…and why she hates the witches so much. Her goal in life is to lose her powers and become a normal 16-year old. Elijah’s mission is to keep his family together and protect his unborn neice/nephew.

Elijah charms Davina to the point where she decides to trust him with her life. Marcel tries to whisk her away from the church but she plays it up and demands he take her back to her room.

What does Elijah have planned? Is there something romantical happening between Hayley and Elijah?

Join the discussion on Twiter, I want to hear what you guys think!

The Vampire Diaries: ‘Original Sin’ RECAP



I can’t even begin to comprehend what I just watched. This week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries is confusingly cheesy…it’s like Inception and Twilight wrapped in 60 minutes. You probably don’t get what I mean by confusingly cheesy…but just watch the episode and please comment below if you understood anything that went down.

First off, Stefan having his own doppelganger was weird and convenient enough to turn me off…now Elena has a third doppelganger????? Silas’ ancient Rome lover!?!?…But she’s dead…because his original lover- Katsuya the witch not the sushi Hollywood hot spot is back and seeking revenge. So confused- what in the world is going on. Julie Plec please explain.

TVD Cast

Katsuya is an ancient witch who now goes by the name of ‘Tessa’….she thinks it’s more modern…we’ll just go with it. She finds Stefan half dead at some bar and takes him in. Everyone has an ulterior motive and of course she’s got Stefan to do some weird witchy thing and connect to Silas. Silas is still busy looking for Katherine.

Ugh this entire episode is a train wreck…it’s so obvious they were at a crossroads and instead of taking one road they took fifty and now there are too many different elements coming together…it just makes for weird television. Damon finds Stefan with Tessa…but before he whisks his brother away to safety…Tessa shares some words of advice. She’s knows a thing about love….since Silas left her at the altar for another woman who looks exactly like Elena and Katherine, but really she was the original Elena and Katherine before because she existed before them.

Like WTF? And the best part was they tried hiding her face (Amara- the third and hopefully final Elena look alike)…they tried hiding Amara’s face at first as if we didn’t know she was going to be Nina Dobrev.

On top of all this weird duplicate doppelganger drama…Matt has some drama of his own. The woman at the end of last week’s episode…the one that killed her friend in front of Silas…she does some thing to Matt’s head and she starts talking to the guy through Matt. Apparently the guy was her lover and they just want revenge on Silas…except now they’re using Matt’s body to communicate since Matt is invincible. So our Matty has some screen time but this storyline is really weird and I’m done talking about it.

Delena

Back to Stelena and Delena…Tessa warns Damon that the entire universe is working against him and Elena because in the end…she’s meant to be with Stefan. Duh! Tessa does another witchy thing to Stefan/Silas…she connects to Silas through Stefan and basically fries Silas’ brain. He no longer has his psychic abilities so he’s just a normal….vampire? Is he a vampire or a werewolf…or neither? I don’t even understand. Damon is all insecure about his realtionship now…but Elena reassures him that it’s all good. Even if she’s dreaming about Stefan. Silas finally has a normal conversation with Katherine over the phone. She asks him why he’s chasing her and he tells her it’s because of the cure…and it’s still pumping through her blood so he wants it.

Stefan wakes up right before Delena has a moment. Elena and Damon are happy Stefan’s back…but when Stefan looks at them he has no idea who they are.

Thoughts? Or shall I say…explanations?

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.

VD502b0165b-1379629135

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.

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.

matt and becca

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.

TVD: Truth or Dare Recap

I’m sure you’ve all experienced those episodes where not much happens, but the characters are stuck in a situation where they have to talk out their feelings…well last night was one of those episodes. I’ll admit, things got cray in the last 10 minutes with the episode leading up to another great cliffhanger…and it looked like Jeremy bulked up a little more which is always good for ratings.

So let’s jump right into things. Rebekah’s is back a la April who felt the need to save her best friend by pulling out the dagger in her heart. Aw, cute! Really though, it was time for Rebeka to return to Mystic Falls and spread her mean girl fairy dust all through the town. She uses April to put her plan in motion, she snaps Elena’s neck and kidnaps her in the school library. Rebekah calls Stefan to tell him she has Elena kidnapped (she doesn’t know they’ve broken up)…Stefan texts Caroline for help, finally they’ve realized how texting is more efficient since vampires can’t hear texts!!

The text goes through, and somehow I think Caroline was hoping for a ‘sext’ rather than a ‘text’. Get where I’m going?…No?…moving on. They’re all useless and Stefan and Caroline find themselves seated at Rebeka’s round table. Rebekah starts asking questions, and they’re all compelled to her so they have to answer. Caroline blurts out that Stefan and Elena are broken up, this catches Rebekah’s attention since she has missed a few weeks on her mean girl duties.

Clearly everyone has diarrhea of the mouth which actually turned out to be a lot of fun. Two words that should never go together- diarrhea and fun. Stefan confesses that he knows Elena slept with Damon, Elena is hurt by this, but more angry at Caroline as she gives her the evil eye. Caroline doesn’t even look up to meet her gaze because she knows she’s failed Elena as her best friend. Who cares! Clearly Caroline wants Stefan for herself. Okay, maybe I’m jumping to conclusions. Stefan still believes Elena is sired to Damon, but Elena chooses to rip out Stefan’s heart even more by denying her sire bond. Rebekah asks Elena if she slept with Damon because of the sire bond, and Elena responds (this deserves quotations) ‘I didn’t sleep with Damon because of the sire bond, I slept with Damon because I’m in love with him!’ Awkward silence around the table, and Caroline comes to the rescue again by forcing Rebekah to change the topic.

Image

Back at the lake house, by the way why don’t they spend more time there? The views are just to die for-literally. Damon keeps listening to a voice mail from Elena while attempting to train Jeremy at becoming the greatest vampire hunter of all time. Apparently, none of them have school anymore- or football practice. Matt is at the lake house with Jeremy helping him hone is strength. They both feel like loading up on carbs so they order pizza for the third day in a row. Klaus shows up and asks Damon how Jeremy’s progress is going, and how many vampires he’s killed. Damon admits he’s killed none, and Klaus makes a point to head back into town and murder everyone for Jeremy’s sake.

Now that Carol Lockwood is dead, Bonnie’s father returns to Mystic Falls to take up the very dangerous role of town mayor. Bonnie is frustrated over he father’s return because he’s never been around to be a good father, since her being a witch totally freaked out him out. She heads over to Shane’s office to practice some more magic but he tells her she’s already learned everything. As her graduation present he gives her a human bone necklace over 2000 years old. That still ain’t no Tiffany’s! On her way out, a familiar face surprises her as she realizes it’s Kol (Rebeka’s other brother). By the time she returns to Shane’s office he’s already gone.

So pizza girl shows up again at the house, this time nobody ordered any pizza. Matt greets her at the front door, she asks for a cell phone because she’s having car troubles. He leaves, Jeremy shows up all hot and sweaty (or at least that’s how I imagined him) Pizza girl realizes she can’t come inside because guess what- she’s a vampire! Jeremy unknowingly invites her inside, and she’s super happy. Upstairs she tries to bite Matt but Jeremy saves the day and kills her- and more tattoos appear on his arm. Yay.

Back at the library, Rebekah and Kol have Shane and are ready to compel him and learn all his awkward professor secrets. The only thing is, Shane can’t be compelled, so Kol decides to use old torture tactics on him.

Here comes the fun part, Rebekah decides to play truth or dare with the gang…Elena goes first and chooses dare. Honestly Rebekah, if you had just chosen spin the bottle it would’ve made for a better time. Rebekah is obviously amazing at truth or dare because this is what she asks Elena, ‘I dare you to tell Stefan the truth about Damon’ Busted! Elena admits being with Damon is unpredictable and she feels free. Lately, all Stefan has made her feel like is a broken toy. Ouch.

Tyler arrives to save his girlfriend, which turns out to be pointless since Rebekah compells him to turn into a werewolf. This has Stefan and Elena running wild through the school halls while Tyler chases them. Rebekah doesn’t need them anymore since she has professor Shane. Or does she?

While torturing Shane, Rebekah and Kol find out Shane wants to find the cure to find Silas, the first immortal whose imprisoned with the cure. Kol freaks out at the name, and Rebekah brushes it off by calling Silas a fairytale. Kol drives a pipe through Shane’s stomach and ‘kills him’. Only problem is, you can’t kill Shane!! But Kol and Rebekah don’t stick around to find that out. Later in his office, Bonnie is angry at him for almost getting April killed. (She tried to put a protection spell on Shane, instead she linked April to him) Shane brushes it off and makes Bonnie feel special by telling her he needs her for his master plan. But he makes it sound less evil and more romantic.

My favourite scene of the episode is when Elena and Stefan are hiding from Tyler, Elena gets the bright idea that they should talk about Damon. Stefan is SO much sexier when he’s pissed, he says ‘How many more ways are there for you to rip my heart out’ I died, and cried a little. Then Rebekah shows up and offers Stefan a way out of heartache. She asks him if she can compel him to forget every single memory of Elena, and forget he ever loved her. Stefan obviously hurt tells Rebekah to do it, to erase every memory. The look on Elena’s face…so good! But of course Rebekah laughs in his face and makes him suffer, the way she’s had to suffer alone for the last 900 years. Stefan leaves the school all sexy and sad, while Elena watches him with tears in her eyes.

Caroline finds Tyler in the school gym back in human form. I guess he came across the memorial for his mother and he breaks down in Caroline’s arms.

Elena phones Damon to check up on him and to tell him that Stefan knows about their relationship. Damon should care, but really doesn’t because he forgets everything about the sire bond when Elena tells him she loves him. He tells her to get her *** over to the lake house for some vampire sex. He doesn’t really say vampire sex. But we know it’s coming.

Jeremy and Damon come across the town and all it’s dead people who apparently all hang out at the local bar (small town problems). Klaus has turned them all into vampires, and he’s expecting Jeremy to kill them all.

Stefan’s home, Rebekah shows up uninvited but she doesn’t really care. Stefan makes a proposition for her, seeing how he hates his brother and she hates her brother, they should team up to find the cure…and if along the way they have a steamy hookup…then that’s fine to. That last part really wasn’t said, but it’s pretty obvious something is going to happen between the two heartbroken vamps.

Stay tuned!

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.

Vampire Diaries Season Premiere

O-M-G I have been waiting patiently for the Vampire Diaries season premiere…and it was kind of a let down. I think I just expected to see Elena jump off and be this amazingly poised Vampire- but she wasn’t. Even if it wasn’t what I expected, VD is still an amazing show, and Julie Plec is God.

So Elena isn’t a vampire just yet, the episode resumes from where last season’s finale finished  off. Elena has a day to feed so her vampire transition can be completed. Stefan and Bonnie think magic might turn Elena back into a human, so they wait until Bonnie finds the right spell. Unfortunately, for the vampires there’s a new gang in Mystic Falls and they’re all appropriately suited to hunt vamps. Stefan,Elena and Rebecca are captured and put into vampire prison.

Caroline and fake Tyler almost hook up, Klaus is really in Tyler’s body but nobody knows until he starts calling Caroline ‘love’…then Caroline realizes she was so close to having sex with Klaus! Which might not have been a bad thing. I feel like there has to be something that happens between Caroline and Klaus. They wouldn’t of brought his character this far so that he could just leave Mystic Falls. I would love a Caroline and Klaus storyline, only because she hates him so much!

The episode felt extremely fast, there were a lot of questions being asked, and mostly just self-discovery from Elena. She starts tripping out when her vampire senses start kicking in. While she’s locked up in the cell beside Stefan, and across from Rebecca, Stefan can hear her breathing and it doesn’t sound normal. She needs to feed or she will die.

Bonnie and Jeremy go at the spell, but Bonnie enters into a really dark magical place, she sees Elena sitting on the prison floor and goes to grab her. Just then Bonnie’s gram shows up and pulls Elena back down onto the floor. Her grams warns her that the magic is too dark, and that the forces will punish her for messing around with the natural order of things. As per usual ,Bonnie’s nose starts bleeding, Jeremy is freaking out as if he’s never seen this before…and Bonnie wakes up- the spell didn’t work. She can’t bring Elena back.

As Elena is slowly dying, Stefan and Rebecca come up with a plan to kill one of the guards. When the guard steps closer to Rebecca’s cell she scares him and he literally jumps back into Stefan’s arms, Stefan kills him and the guard drops to the floor…a pool of blood surrounding him. Elena tries to grab for him but she’s a little too far…after 5 minutes (real time) she finally reaches the blood with the tips of her fingers- and that’s enough to complete her transition.

Klaus/Tyler force Bonnie into returning Klaus into his real body. She tells him she can’t do it, the magic is too strong, and she literally almost just died. Klaus threatens to rip Tyler’s heart out, Bonnie has no choice. In the midst of the magic, her grams shows up again, this time to basically yell at Bonnie for doing another spell, the dark forces are punishing Bonnie by destroying grams. She’s dead.

Damon and Matt show up at the vampire hunter estate- Damon almost kills Matt. Before Elena got locked up, Damon had a deep conversation with Elena about his feelings, and the fact that he did love her, but he wanted Stefan to have her. And then he erases her memory of the entire convo. In the end, Elena is officially a vampire, she goes up to Damon and tells him she remembers everything. It doesn’t matter if you’ve erased all of her memory, if she turns into a vampire- she remembers everything. He tells her he would’ve never saved Matt, he would’ve saved her first- Elena is upset that Matt would’ve been killed, but she realizes how much Damon loves her- and how selfish he can be for her safety. Obviously, she’s got some soul searching to do. Well, not really since she doesn’t have a soul anymore.

Stefan and Elena enjoy a beautiful sunrise as vampires, for the first time. It was the cutest scene ever, Stefan pulls out a daylight ring Bonnie had made for her a few days ago. Klaus is back to normal, Rebecca is pissed off at him for not saving her from the vampire hunters. They are the most dysfunctional family ever, it seems like Rebecca will no longer have her brother’s back…mainly because he snaps her neck and leaves her on the floor.

Ouch.
