The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "Bad Moon Rising"

at . Comments

Welcome to this week's edition of The Vampire Diaries Round Table!

Following an episode that shed new light on the Lockwoods, paired up Alaric with Jenna and gave us a closer look at Caroline as a vampire, our staff has gathered to analyze "Bad Moon Rising." Join the discussion below in our Comments section and/our our show forum...

What was your favorite quote from the episode?
M.L. House: Gotta go with Caroline calling out Stefan for his impressive ability to brood. I laughed out loud at the reference to his "Hey, it's Tuesday" face.

ViddWizard: Damon's reply to Alaric: "There is a huge asterisk next to that statement: he came back to life." I love Damon's wit

Elena: Damon to Vanessa: "If you wanna see me naked, all you have to do is ask."


What do you think of Caroline as a vampire so far?
M.L. House: I think she's hilarious. If Damon is conflicted and Stefan is melancholy, Caroline is a breath of light-hearted, immortal air. You know, like an insecure, neurotic control freak... on crack.

ViddWizard: Rockin' my socks off! Should have changed her last year.

Elena: I'm actually pleasantly surprised with Caroline as a vampire. I almost like her better than human Caroline. I didn't expect them to have her actually bite Matt, but it is The Vampire Diaries, and it did play a part in her ending the relationship to save his life.

Elena ending her friendship with Damon: Fair or foul?
M.L. House: Totally foul. Let's face it, people: Jeremy is annoying! His brooding makes Stefan's Tuesday face look downright joyful. He's also sort of a wimp. Elena should be thanking Damon for almost ending her brother's life. The last she can do is flash the guy.

ViddWizard: Given his recent tantrum after he tried to kiss her (in which he killed Jeremy), I would say fair.

Elena: The thing that makes it fair is the ring. Damon didn't see it, which makes what he did totally unforgivable.

Come up with a relationship nickname for Alaric and Jenna.
M.L. House: Anna. It fits, and its an homage to Jeremy's recently-lost love.

ViddWizard: Really? who started this trend? Okay... Alenna. Wait, that's actually kinda cute.

Elena: Jelaric.

Who would win in a fight: Mason Lockwood or Jacob Black?
M.L. House: Jacob. He could do it with two abs tied behind his back.

ViddWizard:I am going with Mason. He just seems a bit scrappier to me.

Elena: Definitely Mason Lockwood. Jacob's wolf is bear-sized, but Mason has more wolf experience.

My fave quote would have to be Caroline's reaction to her behavior being amplified. The whole extra neurotic spiel was hilarious.
I actually like the change in Caroline. It's very manic but still true to the character.
Fair, he f'n killed her brother point blank. He's not hot enough to pull that ish off.
...meh I don't care much about the Alaric/Jenna sl. Moving on.
To think that one of the pansies from Twitard could ever compete w/anyone from TVD is laughable. I mean, hello, these guys are actual men who don't sparkle. Plus, Mason Lockwood (Taylor Kinney) is a total fox.


Hello All After all that build-up? Here was the awesome "werewolf"
showing that pathetic little wolf. It was not too much more than a third of the mass of the man it was! I was nearly incredulous. It(?) was the killer of mighty vampires!! You cheap, cheap really cheap people. Put it on two feet and give him his proper chops!!!


was anyone else dissapointed by the werewolf? It was a dog! I was hoping for a lupin from prisoner of askaban


I'm sure Matt will find out abou Caroline and the vampires sooner or later, Damon is a bit too much of a dick. Looking foward to seeing Caroline and Katherinebonding next episode. :) Bonnie needs a personality makeover


Um. I still love Bonnie but the attitude towards Caroline was mean :(


I hate Bonnie! Self-righteous judgmental bitch.




It was very unforgivable, what Damon did,
all the same in the end I want Damon and Elena together and I think that over time she will come to forigve him and he will become worthy enough of that forgiveness-
his only humanity had been ripped and stomped on, by the only two people holding him to it- it's fair to say that his reaction was something feasible. That he would tell the truth to Elena was somewhat redeemable when the easy thing and the most beneficial thing to do with have been the easy lie- I saw the ring.
but he cares about her. Hmm,
Caroline and Stefan-- hot? anyone?


1. the "there was a huge asterix next to that" line it was awesomee :)
2. i love caroline as a vampire, she can do the dark broody kinda thing very well.
3. FOUL!
4. Alenna.
5.Mason. but i really have no idea never seen new moon or further on so never seen jacob as a wolf.


@kaykay, The wolf was real... this isn't Twilight here.
