The Vampire Diaries > The Vampire Diaries Review: The Nick of Time > Comments Page 3
I have to say I mostly agree with this review. First of all I also love how Nina plays both characters that being said I do lately feel like Katherine’s character has become just a way for the writers to introduce new info etc and I would love to see her return to the character she used to be. And I totally agree on the always a worse bad guy, I had really hoped that Klaus would’ve been like the big villain of the season, I mean he’s supposed to be an invincible hybrid now and there was so much build-up to the “evil all-powerful invincible super original” and now it’s just like… he’s another victim of something way stronger, it just really bugs me (and also the way that witch stopped him from killing Damon, I doubt Klaus would take that kinda crap or at least would have killed Damon later, but no he just let him go). An the new villain the guy might be a vampire but I think odds are he’s something different like “an original werewolf” or something because it seems
I bet the mystery man at the end of the episode is in fact klaus biological father.the original werewolf who wants his bastard son killed. also it's never been established that werewolves on the vampire diaries can hear a human beings heartbeat, so I'm not going to knit pick on klaus not knowing elena was in the bedroom. hell I don't think we know much about werewolfs abilities on this show yet PERIOD.In the teen wolf series it was well documented (duh). tyler needs to open up and let us all know what exactly he can do, so we can naturally assume that klause can do it as well............. it's great to know that I wasn't the only one not missing jeremy and is dead ex girlfriends or matt with his chalkboard of a personality. I said this last week and I will say it again, bring back elijah now damn it. I think it's safe to say that he is my favorite character with klaus being second.

Stebbeca sounds so much better then Stelena!
After just one episode I love Rebecca and Stefan together!!
I like this review, except i hav to disagree on the Katherine front. I reli like her character, and would be livid if they killd her off. she is so cunning and coniving, that if she ever dies, er character would have been cheated as she is clearly so sly that she would outlive everyone. once again a great episode, seriously, how do the writers do it?
Liked the Caroline Tyler scenes. Also i liked how this episode had nothing to do with Jeremy and the ghosts, as we need somthing to keep the show going for the rest of the season.
i agree wit u,dis is out of context abt everytin they'v shown in the past 2 seasons,r the writers trying to tell us that stefan fell for elena coz he was forced to 4get the woman who could be his soulmate,i dnt believe that,who the hell forced him,huh?i tink dis new stefan has changed everything abt him,he's lost,he need help,but may be the writers are trying to make us think dat it's over between stefan and elena,and its a new chapter in damon and elena's life.Anyway,we'r just 3episodes into the season,we still hv 19 more,there is still hope for stelena,and may be the reason why stefan is in luv with rebecca is coz he dnt tink he would ever go back to elena,coz if klaus finds out,he'll kill her and some hw somewhere wat damon said to elena could be true dat"stefan is gone,and he's nt coming back,nt in ur life time".Lets wait and see.
Opening scene great done! I love the Каtarina -Damon interactions! I love this season AMAZING! This will be a great season! 5 stars(would give 10 if there was an option!)
Psycho-ripper Stefan is so nice to watch! And his growing interest for Becca and she turning him down! Elena! I love Nina and she played the scary scene so well! And she loves HIM; SCREW DAMON!!!! And I don't believe Klaus didn't hear her! I really felt with Elena and Stefan, true love is so beautiful and these 2 have this amazing chemistry, unbeatable!
Claire Holt is such a great actress! Really sexy and entertaining! In one of the What U wanna happen in season 3, I said I wanna a manipulitive Original to fall for Stefan and mess things up!
Turner! Klaus knew Stefan in the past and he like it! Uuuuhhhhhhhhhh! The way the introduced Klaus in the '20 and the way he and Becca interact amazing! And he compels him! I love it!
Caroline!!! My sweet girl! It real was some great scenes to watch over, but they've hap
I felt for Caroline the most due to Accola's acting. I wish she'd have more screentime or otherwise just a cameo in an episode so her story isn't rushed. Maybe Klaus knows about Elena since not knowing is almost impossible except for dramatic licence.
I don't care much for Elena or Katherine because Elena's kinda dull and boring (She has a waking up scene 2 out of 3 episodes, 99% of the time she's with/thinking/worried about Stefan). Elena standing up to and "killing" Elijah was great though. Katherine is kinda superfluous although far more interesting/entertaining than Elena. Delena teasing is repetitive to the point of boredom. Loved the Nik/Stefan bromance. Stefan and Rebecca have great scenes. From Comic Con, I learned that Caroline has a storyline with Becky (who I presume is Rebecca) It'll be nice to have 2 or 3 female vampires in the same time and place (Mystic Falls) this season.
Love this episode! My jaw literally dropped upon knowing that Stefan's ex-girlfriend was an original and him and Klaus are so close in the 1920s that Stefan referred to him as "brother."
All the flashback scenes were my favorite! Who knew that Klaus was close to his sister and that he looked out for her? I love Klaus! LOL.
I wanna see more of Stefan and Rebecca.
Also, Rebecca and Klaus.
I'm so excited for this season!
I just want to see more Klaus and Rebecca bickering sessions, please!
I'm falling in love with the Originals, and can't wait to be introduced to the other members.
As for the main love triangle... I no longer care who Elena ends up with. I'm still led to believe that Stelena are soul-mates, but it would also be fun to see her hook-up with Damon. Although at this point I'd happily trade Elena-Stefan-Damon for the new trio Stefan-Rebecca-Klaus (I think I like "Nik" better).
One last thing, I'd speculate that whoever it is that Klaus is running away from and/or building an army against is either a witch related to the original witch or his werewolf daddy whom Klaus hasn't, as of yet, figured out how to kill since...maybe, he's the original, first cause werewolf.
I absolutely loved this episode, mostly for Stefan, Klaus and Rebecca. I'm pretty sure the flashback with drunk Stefan and Klaus was probably my favourite in the entire series, they actually had a bromance. A bromance! To be honest I really want to see more of that comraderie. Plus, I loved the character of Rebecca, I imagined her to be clingy Katherine, but she seems quite enigmatic.
After all that's happening with the originals and curses and what appears to be some ancient Big Bad worse than Klaus I actually found it distracting to see Damon and Elena on screen. Kudos to Damon for willing to risk every thing for his brother, but it was actually kind of nice to see Stefan telling Elena to just go home. Obviously she knows nothing about all of this, but from the viewers standpoint she should really just go into hiding and pray she doesn't get killed. And interesting to see Katherine again. I won't say she's completely useless just yet, but I want to see them actually do something
I do not believe that Rebbecca is his soul mate I think that they were in Love but that's about, who knows if he had stayed with he what would have become of them>>>Disaster!
When Stephen told Elena he doesn't want her to bring him back, I kinda felt like it was that scene from New Moon when Eward told Bella he doesn't want her and she believed. Stephen is still in love with Elena, he is just trying to keep her alive which she is making more difficult every week.
I kind of Love the fact that Stephen has all these exes that are crazy as hell and still in love with him, it's interesting to watch. Rebbecca is ready to pick up where they left off, but is Stephen? at the end when he realized that Klaus and him were friends, I felt like something changed in him, will he really by Klaus's friend now?
Katerine has always been looking and keeping a close eye on Stephen and even Klaus has we saw tonight.
Yea its sad that in only a few spots rebecca and stefan have more intense chemistry then my stelena. I used to like them together but he chose everyone over her including his brother! Stelena is all but over and will never be the same. I love delena now and secretly have for a lil while. Peace
OH AND OMG TO ELENA'S NECKLACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How did Klaus not realize that it was his sisters.
I am so glad that the football game on in my town went overtime and I didn't get the first 30 minutes of the show. :(
With what I saw. Nik-Niklaus-Klaus. That is how they got to that.
I do not think Rebecca is his soul-mate. I do believe that he loved her deeply. Katherine is FOLLOWING them. It would have been better if she was shown in the earlier episodes right behind him, but this did the trick as well.
To the main reviewer, I think you need to re-watch the episode. I was in understanding of everything the entire time! I feel like you just started watching this show and might have watched 2 seasons in 2 weeks. Your critic is making me mad.
The guy asking Stefan if he has seen them is a witch. Witches told him how to do the process of making a hybrid. Anyone else scream when Stefan said, "Look what I found." I was going to throw something at my t.v. if he would have shown Elena. I am a little upset that, Klaus, big bad valf (vampire+wolf=VALF), did not realize
Isn't Matt the same dingbat that said Delena are like siblings?! If so, I think he needs his head checked and maybe his eyes. Kat showing up was just like her character and I missed her. BTW Rebecca and Stefan have an intense connection. Glad Elena took the hint finally. She needs to be alone for a lil bit theb end up with damon ;)
Does the vampire diaries have a different rating scale? Because compared to almost any other show, this or any other episode is a 5-star episode.
Anyways matt, i do disagree with you. I agree, i still can't make sense of Katherine's arrival last season? What was her entire purpose, but today was more than acceptable.
And as for upping the villain quotient each time, it makes sense and is certainly not far-fetched as of yet.
Or maybe i am just a guy who takes any criticism of this show like a stake through the heart.
Btw loved Matt's closing thought: Have we ever gone an episode without seeing Elena waking up? LOL!!!
In which episode did Bonnie die? She looks dead to the writers and even Jeremy saw him in one of his visions on a screen. Kill her or show her.
Matt, you have an issue with Katherine? I love how Katherine just shows up every now and again. I think I like her because she is such a contrast to Elena. Prolonged exposure to Elena's whiny, weak, helpless, needs to be saved and protected constantly character has me rejoicing when the strong, badass can take care of self Katherine shows up. I marvel at how Nina Dobrev manages to make me love one character she plays while I remain completely annoyed by the other. Okay that was a bit harsh, I do like Elena I just need Katherine to show up every now and again to balance out my moments of irritation. Hats of to Nina!
Matt: That was never more evident than it was here, as she randomly called Damon with [s]full knowledge of Stefan's whereabouts just because... she's made a lot of contacts over the years? That's pretty thin, Vampire Diaries.[/s]
Did you even watch the end of the episode? She had full knowledge of his whereabouts because she was in Chicago. And if she has a bunch of contacts, it is not just a convenient plot device at all that she can find him, because Stefan is a messy, messy guy who rips his victims apart. Make enough noise to make headlines of papers, and people will take notice. It says more about her character than anything. She had evaded detection for hundreds of years by being opportunistic and it goes without saying, that she would have the means to avoid detection with a large source of information that she can use to be far, far away from Klaus, or hide in plain sight from her enem(ies). Other supernatural beings from which she draws information are most likely particular
To answer the questions as best I can:
1.) Q: Is Klaus under orders from a higher vampire? A: Didn't seem that he was under orders from anyone. But if there were two sides it was between vampires and werewolves. It seems that Klaus chose the werewolves and was hunting his family.
It was an interesting story arc about how Klaus has been betrayed time and time again with his family. Even his younger sister (Rebbecca) seemed only to follow Klaus out of fear not loyalty. So it seems, that Stefan being the most loyal friend in the world, had made the best wing man of all time for Klaus.
Is he (Klaus) running away from someone? Apparently so. Is the hybrid army for himself or from higher orders? Ans: Unknown at this point (not enough direction).
2.) Q: Who do you feel bad for Klaus, Stefan, Elena, or Caroline? A: Strangely and oddly, my sympathies were not for Elena or Caroline, but the poorly misunderstood Klaus. Much like Catherine, they are alway
Klaus doesn't have a BIG PLAN for Stefan... he just wants to make friends with him....
Awwww... so sweet!:P
I liked the episode. Feel the same way about Katherine and Caroline's mini SL, but I think it's the beggining of something bigger. Just the tip of the iceberg.
Loved the fact that there was no BONNIE, JEREMY or MATT in this episode.
I Agree with Kool, Klaus is not under order to create hybrids. But he was running from someone. I believe his plan is to create the hybrids so that not even the originals can touch him. But I'm not sure why he would even go that considering he has all his family in caskets. So what does he want? World domination like any cliche bad guy? to be accepted?
In flashbacks from last season Elijah introduced Klaus to Katerina (Katherine) as his brother Niklaus. That is where the Nik comes from.
For anybody wondering why people were calling Klaus, Nick, it's because his name is actually Niklaus. Don't believe me? Watch Season 2 again. I have a fantastic memory and don't need to do that.
