    The episode wvery well made in my opinion apart from some aspects. Tylers transformation was wonderful so props to the actor for that!! I also loved the caroline and Tyler moments, Caroline is really adapting as a person and not so 2D as she was in the first season and we can see her feelings for tyler shine through! not only that but they have amazing chemisrty. TYLER/CAROLINE Elijah is a very interesting character but i hope they don't take that away from him by telling us about his backstory and all that crap just tell us a bit about him leave him then to be our mysterious character (which we will all love). JEREMY was soo cute and caring towards Elena, you can see their brither/sister relationship improving to what I assume it was before the accident. STEFAN/ELENA- What the hell i was loving the stefan/katherine chemisty, she does have feelings even though she tries to hide it she's like the female Damon!Saying that I would only like them to hook up nothing more! Now I like stefan as a character but he is sooooo boring and God forbid them (stefan/elena) too be separted for two days! CW is trying to force them to have this wonderful, carefree relationship but life isn't like that! DAMON/ELENA-okay where to start sooooo cute! I like that it doesn't just focus on them, this gives stelena fans nothing to complain about, but their are such loving scenes in there . Damon truely loves elena and we all know Elena loves him she just needs time. DELENA ENDGAME

    i was quite dissapointed on this episode!!!! i mean, come ooon!!! since stefan and katherine are stuck in the scene, make something happen!!! they have major chemistry and they are deeply in love with each other, stefan is just blinded by Elena!!! there couldve been something, anything between those two!!! but no!! and stelena fans who are gloating cause they got back together, well i dont really mind because i know that Delena will happen in the future since the writers already said that the relationship is building up slowly and then happens the kiss etc.. so im not worrried at alll, i just cant WAIT!!!! :D so sorrry stelena fans but ur boring couple will soon be over, and hopefully for good, which it probably wont -.- but as long as its atleast for awhile i'll be happy

    I did notenjoy the episode as Rose for example but I can't say it wasn't good , it is just paving the way for what might happen in future episodes . DELENA I think will happen in the second half of the season. Stephan is already having doubts and in Katerina Episode he actually thought that Elena was with damon when he was asking Caroline . I think the writters want to do this slowly , if they put Delena together rigt away people will loose interest . Just the way it goes in life

    Okay yes I am a DELENA fan but that's not why I was disappointed in this episode. While I love Delena, that is not even the reason I hate Stelena. I hate Stelena because they act like they have this pure beautiful love which is cute for a while except that now their "honeymoon"iness has gotten seriously old. He was stuck in the tomb for how long? A few days tops and they acted like their reunion was some grand long lost love type of thing. GOD FORBID THEY BE APART FOR A MOMENT OH DEAR LORD. I'm still convinced Stephan's attraction to Elena is based entirely on the fact that she's his long-time fantasy: Katherine, only nice (rather than being based on anything about Elena herself). I think his hate for Katherine is completely forced and he's more not over her than Damon was. He would have a way easier time resisting her mind tricks if that wasn't true. I agree! Stefan and Elena's relationship is becoming a real drag because it seems like everything is so perfect with them all the time. It's like they love each other enough that not even getting stuck in a tomb with his ex-lover can change that. It's annoying how perfect Stefan keeps turning out to be because it's making any storyline with him lackluster and predictable. And seriously, only staying in that tomb for that amount of time was annoying. If they were gonna get him out the next episode they shouldn't have put them in there in the first place.

    Best part for me was definitely Tyler turning into a werewolf. That was really great especially with the way that Caroline handled the whole situation. I also like how they're bringing in Jules because she's like the key towards the information about the rest of the werewolves. The whole deal with Elijah is also very intriguing and that's one of the things I'm definitely looking forward to in 2011.

    This episode was a real disappointment to me. Apart from the Tyler-turning-into-a-wolf-struggle of course, that was crazy good. It is so typical that just when it gets interesting, the writers have to make everything "good and fine" again. I mean, why did they put Stefan in the tomb with Kat if they weren't gonna play with the story and consequences? They did NOT have sex/make out in there, and Damon did NOT make a move on Elena. Ergo, high expectations with little or no outcome. Seems to be a pattern in CW series. And then the Elijah thing. He does not want to hurt Elena, but has a plan of his own.. Now I wonder why he's been running around playing Boogieman up until now. It bothers me how characters act one way and then you find out that they want something different. It's so transparent when the writers have a change of heart regarding a character or a storyline.

    Amazing. Just amazing. Oh for goodness sake at the below comments. You do realise not every episode is going to revolve around freaking Delena? You do realise there are other characters, plotlines and pairings on the show, that deserve screentime every now and then? I, for one, absolutely adored this episode. Tyler and Caroline were just amazing. The acting, the transformation, everything, was just intense. Very well done to Michael and Candice for delivering such a suberb performance. As a person who is a much bigger fan of the Werewolve storyline than I am the whole vampire crap, this episode was my favourite. I wasn't that surprised that the Stefan/Kat sex scene was a dream. I highly doubt Stefan is going to be like "Oh yeah, Katherine I hate you, lets have sex now..." Face it, he loves Elena and he wouldn't do that to her and if he did that may be the most OOC thing on the shows history. But I do love me some Stefan/Katherine so I did enjoy their scenes anyway. I think this episode had everything. It had little funny moments (Elena and Jeremy), it had sweet moments (Damon/Elena, Stefan/Elena) and to top it all of it had an incrediablly intense storyline that held the episode together. (Tyler/Caroline) Don't understand the Rose hate, did she not save your precious Damon? Yes I think she did. Judging by the promo, things are starting to look even better. And Delena fans? Calm down. For christ sake, it was one episode that didn't have your precious Delena, doesn't mean it was crap. /RANT OVER.
