The Vampire Diares: RECAP

A lot of death went down in last night’s episode of The Vampire Diaries . Don’t worry, it wasn’t any of our main characters- but we finally got to see the end of Silas and his really annoying triangle of love. First off, I found it odd that a supernatural being like Silas could have a true love? He’s cold hearted and pure evil…he doesn’t get to have a soulmate! Second, I found it even more weird that his one true love was the original doppleganger of Elena (there’s 3 of her)…could they not create another character? It got really weird and boring.

Having said that, I was super happy with the ending of last night’s episode. Silas died,  his lover Amara (Elena doppleganger) died…and the evil witch bitch Tessa.

Stefan has his memory back, which is a good thing for us because an angry Stefan is a really sexy Stefan. He remembers everything, but mostly he remembers the pain Silas caused him by locking him up in the container. He can’t get Silas out of his head which makes Stefan more eager to track him down and kill him. But it’s not that easy to kill a super male witch…and Elena’s scared that Stefan’s going to do something and get himself killed. Elena’s all lovey dovey towards Stefan- she obviously feels guilty because she was the biggest bi****, she totally had the best summer of her life while her ‘one true love’ was dying at the bottom of a quarry. Not a river, not a lake…a quarry.

Stefan opens up to Elena and tells her he really wanted it to be her, the one that found him. He wanted her to be the one that was looking for him…he wanted both of them to find him (Elena and Damon). They’re the 2 most important people and they didn’t save him…because they were too busy getting it on. It’s time for Stefan to really express how he feels, he has such a great love for his brother and Elena but they did a really mean and f***** up thing to him. I want to see him get mad, I want to see Delena feel guilty because Stefan’s been miserable for too long. Also he needs to get with Caroline already!

BONNIE

Oh and they find a way to transfer the anchor spell that was on Amara to Bonnie. So basically Bonnie has a foot on each side of the universe, Jeremy and everyone else can see and feel Bonnie, but Bonnie can also see people on the other side. And the worst part- Bonnie gets to feel every supernatural being dying…because they have to go through her to get to the other side. And boy it isn’t pretty. I think it’s obvious now that no spell comes without consequences.

In Memorium:

Tessa (the crazy ex girlfriend witch)

Amara (the crazy original Elena doppleganger & one true love of Silas)

Silas (the craziest man witch that ever lived)

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: 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.

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.

Image

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!

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: The Killer Recap

You just know it’s going to be a bad episode when it starts off with “Dear Diary…” Last night’s episode of The Vampire Diaries was probably the least exciting episode this season. However, we did get to enjoy a little excitement when Elena straddled Damon and our two buff buddies (Jeremy & Matt) got a lot more air time than usual. Most of the episode took place at the Mystic Grill where Connor was holding Jeremy,Matt and April hostage. His idea was to set a trap, when Stefan or Damon came to the rescue the whole place would blow up. Rebecca is back in her coffin with a dagger in her, and Klaus is in Italy.

Damon tries enlisting Bonnie to help with this week’s mission, but Bonnie realizes she’d rather flirt with her cute/awkward professor  then help out the gang. Also, she doesn’t have her magic powers anymore. Wah. Elena continues to be a sad/whiny vampire…she tries to help Stefan but he begs her to stay behind, and stay alive. Stefan is secretly working with Klaus, they both know that there’s a cure for ‘vampireism’…but nobody else does. Damon suspects Stefan is either being compelled by Klaus or he’s made a deal with him. Stefan knocks out Damon, takes off his daylight ring, and forces him to stay in the apartment with Elena. Something is about to go down at the Mystic Grill and it isn’t a chicken wrap on a bed of fries.

While on the phone with Tyler, Caroline overhears Klaus admitting to Tyler he knows about his new ‘friend’ Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin)…and the time they spent together on the mountains. Caroline can obviously hear because of her vampire super hearing powers. She’s upset, Tyler doesn’t really care, but in the end Tyler explains he’s just friends with Hayley and that nothing happened. Besides, Hayley doesn’t have time for teen drama.  Tyler admits to Caroline that they have a mutual mission to teach all other hybrids that they don’t need to be compelled by Klaus. Great mission. Changing the world one hybrid at a time. Anyways, this might be it for Tyler and Caroline, and hopefully something between her and Klaus will happen because that would be awesome.

Back at the Grill, April is tripping out because all of a sudden people are talking about werewolves and vampires. She has no idea what’s going on. Connor doesn’t let Jeremy out of his sight because he knows Jeremy is a potential vampire hunter and feels like he needs to mentor him. Stefan tries to save Jeremy, but Elena has a better idea. Since Connor doesn’t know she’s a vampire, Damon tells Elena to get as close to Connor as possible…and kill him.

Elena begs Connor to let her brother go, she jumps at him, and they fight, but Connor’s stronger and is about to kill Elena (well almost) but Stefan grabs Connor…and dissapears with him. Meanwhile, Matt and April are in the back room, Matt finds a wall that leads to the tunnels under Mystic Falls. Damon finds the same tunnel and it leads him to the hole in the wall that Matt opened.

Damon corners Stefan…and stabs him. He forces Stefan to tell him the real reason he’s working with Klaus. Stefan tells Damon about the ‘vampireism’ curse and how Elena can be healed. Connor escapes but not for long because Elena catches up to him, bites him…and then kills him!!! Literally the entire dynamic of the episode changes in the matter of seconds. It goes from please finish now to O-M-G Elena just did something dangerous and thrilling!!! So Connor’s dead, which at first I found hard to believe. Was is that easy to kill him after everything that’s happened? Elena feels like she needs to bury his body…Damon and Stefan supervise her because apparently she’s on suicide watch. Elena is back in her Debbie Downer mood and she is feeling extremely guilty for killing a human. Stefan gives Damon a look that basically explains why he wanted a cure for ‘vampireism’. [I put ‘vampireism’ in quotations just because it sounds so ridiculous and I laugh everytime they say it in the show.]

Back at the mansion, Stefan is forced to spend some QT time with his brother because Elena wants some alone time. Now that Connor is dead, they have no way of finding the cure for ‘vampireism’. Damon understands why Stefan wanted the cure so badly, it’s obvious that Stefan can’t love Elena the Vampire. Damon, on the other hand, doesn’t care if she’s a vampire. He admits that either way…he loves Elena. Sorry Stefan!

In the end, Matt and Jeremy are reunited to discuss their gym schedule for the week and how many pushups they can do. April mentions visiting Caroline…and then asking why the Grill is closed. Obviously Caroline compelled her to forget everything. She walks away and Jeremy looks down at his hand at a tattoo starts forming…probably because Connor is dead and he’s now the next vampire hunter!!

Also, it’s not the time of the month but Elena finds blood all over her washroom and the word ‘killer’ in blood on her bathroom mirror. Not sure whose the culprit…but we’ll find out next week.

TVD Recap: The Rager

So we’re on the third hour of the new Vampire Diaries season. What we’ve learned so far is that the production clearly suffered from budget cuts in their green screen department and Bonnie is as useless as the White Oak Dagger.

It’s obvious that Damon is now more suited to take care of Elena, Stefan isn’t strong enough to deal with all the changes she’s going through. In the end of the episode, Stefan has a cute friendly chat with Caroline about how he’s trying to deal with Elena…and how he can’t because he’s afraid he’s going to turn into The Ripper. This is definitely going to be the main factor with the relationship between Stefan and Elena falling apart. Right now, he’s just not good enough for her, he can’t be the support system that she needs and Elena is starting to realize that.

Getting into this week’s episode…Tyler is recovering from his ‘injuries’ at the hospital. They put one guard outside his door…hello this is Mystic Falls…pretty sure anything supernatural can beat down a fat lazy security guard. Tyler hears something going on outside, Connor walks into his room but Tyler’s faster and is ready to chop him down. But, Connor The Vampire Slayer is faster and somehow gets Tyler on his back, sticks a needle into his gums, and extracts whatever werewolf DNA he has.

Back at the school, Elena and Matt meet up in the grungy back alley so she can feed from him once again. Seems like they’ve been doing this on a daily basis, because realistically she needs human blood…and she doesn’t want to kill anyone. Matt is one of the more useless characters…so why not take part in the blood donation?

It’s back to school for everyone, including Elena. She doesn’t see a reason to stay indoors, it would make Connor more suspicious that she’s a vampire. But maybe staying home and calling in sick would have been better, because Connor is everywhere, including Mystic Falls High. Connor corners Matt in the hallway, threatening to kill him if he doesn’t give up one of his vampire friends. He’s not too happy with Rebecca since she did almost kill him, so he blurts out her name. Close Call. Bonnie is still nowhere to be found…even on the first day of school?

So Julie Plec and her minions took a page out of the Mean Girls script…and pumped it with some Mystic Falls allure. Rebecca is the mean girl at school and she only has it out for Elena. She’s literally the only Mean Girl in the history of the world that doesn’t have a possy of other mean girls circling her at all times. How do they end up having the same class schedule? Anyways, it’s the first time Elena and Stefan are back in Alaric’s old classroom. Rebecca walks in and mentions how he’s the one that killed him- ouch. Then, Elena is furious (because everything is heightened, and no Stefan didn’t say it this time) she throws a perfectly sharpened pencil at Rebecca, but she’s an original vampire and she’s super fast. She throws it back at Elena and it stabs her right under her shoulder….ruining her perfectly clean cashmere sweater. She makes a run for the bathroom, when they see Connor chatting it up with Jeremy. Stefan says he’ll take care of it if she takes care of her stain…evidently girl problems aren’t as severe as vampire problems. When Elena is cleaning herself up in the bathroom, another girl walks in holding her neck. She asks if Elena is okay…Elena says that she is…but random girl says she isn’t. She reveals the bite marks on her neck and the blood gushing out of her. Clearly all the drama happens in the bathroom, Rebecca walks in and tries to lure Elena into killing the girl…which would prove to Connor who the vampire is.

Connor is having a chat with Jeremy and explains more about who he is. He tells Jeremy the tattoos on his arm are actually invisible and only vampire hunters/potential vampire hunters can see them. He asks Jeremy to bring him a vampire, and he will mentor him.

Meanwhile, Damon finds Connor’s trailer in the woods, but is confronted with a huge problem when Connor’s booby trap nails Damon, if he tries to take the arrow out, the trap will self detonate. He calls Meredith since he’s too proud to call Stefan and ask for help. She comes quickly, while removing the arrow from his back, she gives him some words of advice, and sympathizes with him that he’s doing all the dirty work, while his brother is with the girl he loves. He finds the paper Pastor Young wrote that is a warning for the evil that’s coming to Mystic Falls.

Mean Girl Rebecca decides to throw a house party in light of the new curfew law in Mystic Falls. Her party probably sucked because it was still daylight outside, and Connor spiked the Keg with werewolf DNA. Elena shows up anyway, she wants to ‘get back’ at Rebecca and show her how strong she is. After a brief conversation with April, Rebecca interrupts for some more mean girl antics. Elena tells April to take a tour of the house- because why wouldn’t you want a tour of someone’s house during a house party? Lame. Rebecca ends up stealing Elena’s daylight ring and throws it into the garbage thing in the sink. Elena is forced to sit in the corner of the kitchen that’s not in the sun- until she retrieves her ring. The party resumes but not for long because Stefan offers Elena a better idea…to ride his motorcycle. His actual vintage motorcycle…right after Elena does the ultimate keg stand in front of the entire party. Everyone goes nuts, and Rebecca is fuming with jealousy…even though she could probably do a better keg stand since she is an original.

Caroline doesn’t feel like attending Rebecca’s party she would much rather spend time with Tyler. Unfortunately, Tyler’s in a sticky situation when a werewolf friend from the Appalachian Mountains pays him a visit. He had a brief fling with this other werewolf during his trip away, and never told Caroline about it. When Klaus is upstairs talking to werewolf girl, he hears the conversation between Tyler and Caroline at the front door. It’s obvious that Tyler is trying to cover up the fact the werewolf girl is upstairs. He covers up by telling Caroline he’s on house arrest under Klaus’ orders.

While Elena and Stefan are riding in front of a horrendous green screen, Elena decides to play the daredevil and stand on the motorcycle while Stefan is casually driving with his ugly looking helmet. She’s definitely having a lot of fun enjoying her new vampire abilities. The two lovebirds take it into the bedroom…and almost get to the Vampire Sex we’ve all been waiting for. But things get awkward when Elena sees Damon’s face instead of Stefan’s. She pushes him off her…and then gets sick because she just did a keg stand with contaminated werewolf beer. Klaus agrees to save her life by letting her drink his blood, all is back to normal.

Not so much, because Damon has the brilliant idea of luring Connor to the hospital to meet one of Meredith’s vampire patients. Really, him and Klaus have a storage room ready for Connor- they used the same booby trap Connor had in his trailer. While Connor is tied up, he mentions he has a tattoo that’s invisible…and Klaus interrupts him by asking him if he’s one of the five. Evidently, Klaus knows more about Connor’s past then Connor does. Just then, the trap detonates, Damon jumps out in time, and thinks Connor is dead. But, he’s not, because Klaus is faster and ends up saving Connor. Clearly, there is something important Connor has, and Klaus knows he can make use of it.

In the end, Elena and Matt meet up at her place for a quick sucking session. Only this time Elena loses control and nearly kills Matt. Damon arrives just in time to throw her off Matt, Matt was in shock that he nearly lost his life…again. Damon compels him so he forgets anything even happened. Elena is shocked and disgusted in herself that she would let herself go that far. Elena asks for Damon’s help during her transition into a full fledged vampire. She knows Stefan isn’t capable of it, and of course Damon loves the fact that he can do something for her Stefan cant.

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.

Vampire Diaries Season Finale

So, I couldn’t resist and I ended up watching The Vampire Diaries finale at work- and trust me I don’t regret it one bit!

Honestly, the best episode ever, I don’t even know how to explain how amazing the episode was in this post…really you need to watch the episode for yourself.

***SPOILER ALERT***

I mean really, I’m not going to hold back about tonight’s events, we just need to discuss what happened, why it happened and more importantly what the heck is going to happen come next season?

First off, I want to thank the CW for renewing the Vampire Diaries for a fourth season, because without it we wouldn’t know what will become of Elena now that she’s a VAMPIRE! Yes, she’s a vampire folks! Breaking news- this just in- Elena is officially a vampire, well not officially but the ending scene which resembled the ending of Twilight:Breaking Dawn Part I pretty much hints to a very vampire-ish Elena next season.

So I’ll try starting off at the beginning, which oddly enough wasn’t the ‘beginning’ we had always thought was the beginning. We as the audience and even Elena always thought Stefan was the first of the Salvatore brothers she had met. Damon is a few hours away from Mystic Falls at the storage unit he was hiding Klaus’ body. Stefan was home…and I hate to admit but he was kind of useless in tonight’s finale but we’ll get to that later. Matt date rapes Elena by putting something into her tea, when she wakes up they’re already a few miles out of Mystic Falls. Matt wants to save Elena and take her as far away from the Vampire life (don’t worry he doesn’t try sleeping with her). Thank the lawd for cell phones because halfway through their ride Elena gets a phone call telling her Klaus is dead…Alaric got to him…which means Stefan and Damon could be dead in a very short while.

Klaus claimed he had turned Stefan and Damon into vampires…which would mean if Klaus die they die…also Tyler would die as well. Also, if you’re lost at this point and haven’t been watching the episodes just stop reading now because there’s really no hope for you. It’s just a really complicated but amazing storyline.

So Elena gets all teary-eyed on the phone with Damon, Matt tells her she better make a choice return home or drive out to the storage unit to say goodbye to Damon, Matt clearly can’t drive fast enough for Elena to say bye to both brothers. Obviously, Elena tells Matt to turn back because she wants to be with Stefan. Damon still on the phone with her, asks her if she would ever choose him…she tells him it’ll always be Stefan, but really if she had met Damon before she had met Stefan- maybe things would have worked out differently. Which doesn’t really make sense, just because you meet someone first doesn’t mean you’ll fall in love with them, right?

Anyways, let’s REWIND a little, to the beginning of the episode. Bonnie decides she wants a few minutes alone with Klaus’ dead body. Meanwhile, Tyler and Caroline are forced by their loving mothers to leave Mystic Falls since everyone in town knows they’re vampires and werewolves. Before leaving, Caroline finds out that Klaus is dead- which means Tyler is about to die as well. In what looks to be their final moment together, they say goodbye, Tyler falls to the ground, Caroline leaves, and we assume Tyler is dying. Of course, in this show assumptions will leave you feeling like a complete idiot. So don’t assume- just watch.

When Bonnie was alone with Klaus, she put a spell on him that somehow transferred his spirit/body into Tyler’s, and when Alaric killed Klaus it wasn’t really Klaus who he was killing. (We don’t know if Tyler is dead or Klaus is just borrowing his body, it’ll be interesting next season Klaus might play as Tyler just so he can be with Caroline) Also, remember Stefan and Damon didn’t die, it’s because Klaus wasn’t really dead, if he had really died they would’ve died as well.

Damon and Rebecca are at the storage unit attempting to escape with Klaus’ body, Alaric shows up, he gets to Klaus and before Damon or Rebecca can do anything he stabs Klaus and he goes up in flames. Rebecca manages to get away, Damon stays at the storage unit in hopes of finding valuable treasures in some of the other units (kidding).

Back to Mystic Falls, Rebecca shows up to tell Stefan (since she saw Klaus go up in flames and didn’t know about Bonnie’s spell she thinks her brother is dead) that Alaric is still alive, the only way he can be killed is if she kills Elena.

Alaric is busy beating the crap out of Damon, while he’s in this weird dying faze, Damon remembers the first time he met Elena. It was the night her parents died, which would also mean she met Damon before she met Stefan!!!!! He recalls meeting her on the bridge, but compells her to forget ever meeting him because the Salvatore brothers hadn’t officially returned to Mystic Falls yet. Which explains why Elena never remembered meeting Damon first. Also, now that she’s a vampire and vampires remember everything that happened in their human life, she might remember her meeting with Damon on the bridge, and that might lead to something- just saying.

Suddenly, he gets this urge to fight Alaric, I guess his motivation was to survive and win Elena back. While they’re fighting Alaric starts getting weak.

While Matt and Elena are driving back to Mystic Falls, on the same bridge that her parents died on, Rebecca jumps in front of Matt’s car forcing him to swerve and literally drive off the bridge into the water. Stuck in the car, Matt is so useless he’s already unconscious, somehow Stefan shows up and he goes to pull Elena out. She refuses and tells him (well she cant talk they’re underwater) to take Matt out first. While Stefan’s dragging Matt’s useless body out of the water, Damon starts really hurting Alaric. Alaric falls down and asks what’s happening to him, we see Elena stuck in the car, she starts losing herself until she’s somewhat dead. Alaric turns to stone and basically falls to the floor. Damon realizes that something must have happened to Elena if Alaric is dead.

After that, I know it’s really amazing huh? Jeremy is home, he sees Alaric, for a second you wonder how Alaric is still alive, then you realize Jeremy sees ghosts and he’s totally seeing the ghost of nice Alaric. It was really sad, that scene broke me into pieces.

Elena is dead, she’s at the hospital, Stefan sitting over her dead body. Damon finally arrives, Meredith tells him that Elena had suffered from a brain hemmorage earlier in the day (the bloody nose)…and that she had to give vampire blood to heal Elena. She didn’t want to worry everyone so she didn’t tell them that it was a huge injury. Obviously, vampire blood + death= vampire transformation, so just like the Twilight people did in Breaking Dawn, so did the Vampire Diaries crew.

 

With a beautiful aerial shot of Elena lying on the table, the camera stays still on her, and all of a sudden she opens her eyes and gasps for air. THE END!

SO AMAZING!!, I loved it, I really don’t know what else to say! I’m sad we have to wait 5 months for the next episode but wow is it going to be worth it! We all knew this day would come, Elena turning into a vampire…it just made sense and I’m so happy the writers wrote it into the finale episode. It was just amazing, well done!
