by at . Comments

So, did you have a good time at the Mystic Falls carnival? More so than Caroline, at least?

Brave New World Scene

The Vampire Diaries followed up last week's stellar season premiere with another exciting episode. We hope readers join us at TV Fanatic tomorrow for a complete rundown of "Brave New World" - from an early-morning review to an afternoon Round Table - while they discuss it now in our show forum and then sound off below:

What did you think?

I love love love this episode. I'm liking Caroline so much more. But I hope she won't become bad or get killed eventually. I have a feeling there's more coming for her. But hopefully not as a villain. I loved Stefan before and now I love him even more. So happy to see that now it is Stefan who is working to keep his relationship with Elena better instead of brooding and feeling guilty all the time. Stefan really improved this season. I'm also liking Damon and Jeremy's budding friendship, if that's what it is. It's like Damon and Alaric in season one. Damon really has a quality that makes people like him unintentionally :) Sorry to Tyler and Mason fans. I wanted to fast forward their scenes. Not interesting to me at all :)


@emma, very very true :)


I love Caroline! lol, she's so much cooler as a vampire, loved when she was able to control herself with Matt.
Also, Stefan was so great! I'm really liking him this season (so far at least)
The Damon/Jeremy scene was great too. These two are adorable lol


I loved the ending of this episode - it was very, very sweet and also kind of refreshing, I was waiting for something awful to happen, a cliffhanger or something, so I was presently surprised and I liked it. My absolute favorite line from this episode was the whole scene between Damon and Stefan.
"Maybe they're ninja turtles!"
"You're not funny!"
"Or no, zombies, werewolves."
"No comedic timing, at all."
LMAO! If there's anything funnier than Damon Salvatore, it's Stefan trying to act like him and Damon calling him out on it. Priceless! These two really need more scenes together.


i thought this episode was pretty good,i love how this show never drags and gets straight to the point!I HATE BONNIE!!!!!she's the one who told damon to give caroline his blood and now shes blaming him.what a bitch.
nways all in all great episode,great acting(nina dobrev,and caroline).
can't wait for the tyler lockwood stroyline.


loving caroline after tonights episode, been a bit luke warm on her until now :) i'm excited to see her continue to live as a vampire...i hope we don't have a quick exit like vicki! @madison: i wouldn't say they're biased, and obviously the love triangle is still happening, but for the moment its elena/stefan which is such a nice change from other shows where the coupling changes so often. damon/elena will happen but it should happen naturally, not rushed, or else the show won't go past a couple seasons. delayed gratification is best dont you think? :)


This episode made me like Caroline more too! I like her as a vampire and I think it was a nice twist that the writers have done. I hope she stays on the show as a vampire.


actually the author of the books created the characters...


This episode actually made me like Caroline. She didnt let it (being a vampire) control her.. unlike Vicki.


@madison: the writers are biased?? They're the one writing the show! They created the characters and decide how they act... can I assume you're just making a joke by using the word "biased?" that makes no sense.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
