Oh and yeah i felt it was forced for Elena to stay broken with Stefan, but im glad they are both single and it somewhat allows hope for new love interests, Doubt that will happen.
Is Matt going to die or were the producers just teasing us when they said someone was going to die ? Nawt kewl dude.
I think they couldnet touch the moonstone or they'd die as well? RIght and thats why they left it with Katherine. If not then yeah it was stupid to leave it with Kat
I am so suprised this episode didnt get five stars and last weeks one almost did, cuz i thought last weeks one was one of the worst this season(Worst probably best in mostother shows) I loved how everyone pulled their weight this season, And yeah We're all expecting Katherine to come back too but very interisted to see what happens to Elena next week! Not a fan of Jeremy and Bonnie, i liked Donnie better but im sure the show will change my opinion
@ M.L. House: Fear enough to me :) Hey I have put myself in your position many times and I can’t ever do what you do. I think you do an amazing job……
First let me say that I really enjoyed this episode. The fight scene between Katherine, Stefan, and Damon was FANTASTIC! However, I do agree that I don't like the way they let Katherine off the hook and locked her in the tomb. I agree with the reviewer completely about this. I loved the fact that she had herself magically connected to Elena...THAT alone should've been the reason they didn't kill her. The spell attaching them to each other shouldn't have been broken until AFTER Katherine was released from the room. The new witch could've easily kept part of her deal with Katherine and then turned on her after Damon and Stefan couldn't get to her. I don't know, but that was the only part that really disappointed me. They had no reason not to kill Katherine once she was incapacitated and the connection to Elena was broken.
@Picazo: Awww, thanks!
You're not being too hard on me at all when it comes to disagreeing with my reviews. I love the feedback. I simply don't like being accused of not paying attention.
I missed one line about Jenna and I immediately went back and corrected that. I can't think of that ever happening before in any of my reviews. I'd simply like the focus to be on everyone's opinion of what went down on the episode, not on how closely I watched it. Is that fair?
I agree, it was away too hyped episode that did not add up to the excitement of the last one or the promos s for that matter.
About Stefan like Bon Jovi, we heard about that in episode 8 :)
@ M.L. House: are we been too hard on you? I must say I learned from the best and that you! After I started reading your reviews I learned to see and analyze things better props to you dude.
Someone wasn't paying attention. Jenna did explain what she thought happened to her- there was a big fuss over her being embarrassed that she 'walked into a knife.' Sharpening the old review skills might be a good idea sometime soon...
@Picazo: Same response as I had to the other reader: Just because I didn't mention a scene you wanted me to doesn't mean I didn't pay attention.
Seriously, folks, disagree with me all you want. I'm not asking for universal opinions here. But please refrain from saying I'm not watching an episode closely. Are you not reading my reviews closely? I mention countless small details. They may not always be the details you want me to mention, but they're the ones I choose to focus on.
@Sidewinder: No worries or need to apologize. I love debates over this show and others. It would be boring if everyone shared my opinion :)
I just got a bit offended at the notion that I didn't watch the episode. I spend way too much of my life watching, analyzing and thinking about The Vampire Diaries to be accused of such nonsense. :)
@ M.L. House: I usually agree with most of your reviews starting from "Heroes to Lost etc." However this episode of TVD needed more credit then what you and the Editor has given. A 3.5 / 5.0 rating I don’t agree with that. You need to pay more attention to the episodes you can’t just be missing random tiny parts I mean you dint even talk about the part where the two brother where in the room trying to kill Kat. That was great unexpected and much created yet you choose this good episode to talk about the negativity not cool dude.
I enjoyed this episode a lot, I am sure that everything will be explained pretty soon this show is really good at that…
M.L. House, you really don't have to bother about us.
That's your opinion and I'm glad this show makes us think and debate. I apologize for myself, it's just I was expecting a huge five-star grade. It's just me being not objectively.
P.S. Wish I worked here as a reviewer :D
I mostly agree with this review however I really loved the episode as a whole and I think it was a good setup for the major storyline that's about to come.
... Although that mask was really funny looking so instead of being scared for elana I found myself laughing?:/ idk
I very much disagree with elanas decision not to get back
together with stefan. He went through all that trouble (with the help of Damon and others) to get rid of her and then they
don't? In my opinion it's still too early for delana I mean he just tried to kill her brother a couple of weeks ago...
Overall, a great episode. But the lack of details and reasoning kind of made it less great. :)
@Slev: I watch every second of every episode of the show and wake up at 5am every Friday to review it - so please don't question my dedication. I missed one line about Jenna and I went back to the review to fix that.
As for other complaints... I stand by them all. You're speculating as to future developments in terms of how they'll deal with the dead girls, and that's fine. (I even also recognize that possibility in the review) But that has nothing to do with paying attention to this episode.
I don't get behind the idea that compulsion is the answer to everything. For one thing, it's a cop-out for the writers. For another, it's not even really possible. Caroline is going to compel, what, every resident in Mystic Falls? The parents of Aimee are gonna believe she ran away (still a rather huge deal for parents to believe)... but what about all her friends?
I absolutely welcome contrasting opinions and encourage a good debate. We simply disagree on a few reactions to this episode an
Frustrated because I loved it so I apologize for the tone, but....Does the reviewer watch the show? How did they miss the first few minutes of the show where they talked about the freak accident? So the police did come for the girl Tyler killed and they said that Caroline and Tyler would be questioned -pretty sure Caroline is going to compel them since she is a vampire-into understanding it was an accident. The other girl will go missing her body will be found later..I am pretty sure. What was your other complaint? Oh that Elena would have run into Stefans arms at the death of Katherine? Not so sure..she almost lost Jeremy and Jenna this month...she might need some down time, but she didn't say they weren't getting back together or that she didn't love him. She is just waiting...i am thinking perfectly reasonable. That Damon wants to torture Katherine by locking her in the tomb he thought she was locked in for 145 years while he pined away for her...that is a bit sadistic and crazy
@M.L. House Yes, exactly. Compelled that she'd run away. But this time, Damon, better burn the body, not hide it in the woods :]
And The Vampire Diaries, unlike Lost, has already aired one full season. They still have like 15 episodes left (am I right? I'm not good at maths xD) to explain everything, but I suppose that there will be another (great, I wish) season. Honestly, I was satisfied with the season 1 finale (a lot was explained, there were good cliffhangers. Weren't you? So please just keep you fingers crossed that it will keep getting better (and it is :D).
About Lost. I couldn't stand it so I backed out after the second season. TVD is better because Kevin & Julie know what's going on (in their series):]I assume that the Lost's writers didn't expect to be a part of the six (?) seasons arc and they got mixed up.
i love this editorial for the episode. it seemed like such an epic episode but in the end it didn't live up to my expectations. although i get why katherine couldn't 'die' yet, but why on earth would they keep her alive after all of that determination and gusto they showed earlier? also, i wasn't a fan of elena's decision to remain broken up with stefan although i just chalk that up to maybe a sixth sense informing her that there's danger around the corner. so that makes it a little better. and you're right about the death count. but what i'm wondering is when these 'human' characters will learn about the supernatural element. and when will the characters who do know about the supernatural element realize that those UNAWARE of it are at greater risk? that's getting so old. and i hope tvd changes this soon!
I didn't get why they left the moonstone in the tombe with Katherine..
And I must say that I think it's a bit weird that nobody saw that the student was murdered. She fell dead in the arms of Stefan. Did nobody saw that at the party? Or that Stefan removed the body from the scene? Nobody was paying attention clearly...
And in comment to why they didn't kill Katherine off, ML House, you explained it yourself, because leaving her in the tombe is worse that death. Damon's life has been destroyed over the last 145 years, so death is just to easy. Bonnie put the spell on the tombe, maybe she has part in this aswell (but just guessing).
I thought they were killing a major character off in this episode. Is that still going to happen?
@Sidewinder: I wish you were correct, but I watched Lost. Sadly, not everything major is explained in a TV show. :)
Also, not sure what you mean by compelling Aimee's parents... to think what? That their child ran away? That she never actually existed? Compulsion can't just be the answer to everything.
Have you, M.L. House, ever realised that this is a TV SERIES, not a TV movie or something? Everything [major facts] will be explained.
I loved this episode.
There were deaths in Mystic Falls. Many, plenty of them. And there were some deaths that wasn't explained. Do you really need to watch Aimee's parents being compelled? I, personally, don't.
Jenna's stabbing was explained. Pretty lame, sure, but she doesn't remember anything and you can tell her everything.
And, finally, they wanted to KILL Katherine, because it was easier than to CAPTURE her. Then,(thanks to that witch, Lucy) as Katherine was disabled, rotting in the tomb aka hell much more abusive.
i loved this episode :) it was very good.
@Lee: Fair enough, but I sprinkled the positive in there, too, didn't I? I'm VERY intrigued by all Katherine said at the end, and I also like the show giving Bonnie more to do. She can't just be whining about her lot in life every week... this isn't Heroes!
Also, I didn't give props to Nina Dobrev for her work in that final tomb scene. Great stuff.
Jenna actually said: How does someone run into a knife?
Or something like that...
Like Tom said, it was definitely explained what Jenna believes happened to her.
As for Katherine's doppleganger comment, I think it's about time that the show deals with why two of the characters look identitcal. There's a strong storyline there.
I also believe that we are meant to think that Elena is lying to Stefan. Safety isn't why she wants to keep things cool; Damon is. The subtext of the Damon-Elena tension has been building over the past few weeks, and became very apparent in Katherine's taunting this episode.
I couldn't say that I don't agree in some of M.L. House's review because some are just plain truth and are hard to ignore. But I was hoping that the positive side were given, too.
