The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "The Birthday"

by at . Comments

Welcome to The Vampire Diaries Round Table!

We posted our official Season 3 premiere review last night. Now three TV Fanatic staff members - Dan Forcella, Steve Marsi and Eric Hochberger - have gathered to discuss "The Birthday" in a Round Table format.

As always, reader feedback is encouraged on the following questions and answers...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What was your favorite quote from last night?

Dan: Definitely "It's your party, you can cry if you want to" because it was classic Damon charm with a stone cold demeanor. 

Steve: The Season One-evoking "Hello, brother," with the Salvatores now in completely unfamiliar, opposite roles. Awesine.

Eric: Pretty much most of Alaric and Damon's mocking of being at a high school party. It's so easy to forget these are high school kids until Damon mutters something witty about beer pong.

TVD RT NEW

Will Stefan the Ripper ever return to the Stefan of old?

Dan: Of course. That phone call to end the episode said it all. Stefan's still in there. He will make his return. I don't know how. I don't know when, but the Ripper (still love calling him that) will cease to exist, and our favorite do-gooder vampire will return.

Steve: Eventually, he has to, but I have a feeling the Ripper is here for a very long haul. Stefan would have to free himself from Klaus first, and the O.G. vamp ain't goin' out like some punk.

Eric: Duh. Like Dan, saw Stefan's facial expressions during the phone call. And much like Klaus, I just believe Stefan is putting on a show and that good guy can't hide that deep.

Will Delena ever be Delena in the romantic sense?

Dan: I really want to say yes. After all, the chemistry is obviously there in spades and Damon at one point was a good person, so since Stefan is now becoming this crazy Ripper, why should Elena not have reservations about him as well? But if there is ever any actual romance between the two, it will be short-lived. Elena will be with Stefan once he returns to his old ways, and that's just a darned shame.   

Steve: It sure looked like they took a step back last night, but clearly there's still palpable tension of that nature. The question is whether some turning point or event will cause them both to embrace those urges fully and simultaneously. Given her obvious feelings for Stefan, I'm skeptical that it'll happen.

Eric: You can ask me in as many round tables as you want, but I will never give in. And besides, they had their chance this week when Elena asked Damon to put her necklace on her. Who does that??

How much do you love Forwood?

Dan: I love For-anyone. Since I just finished catching up on TVD yesterday (watching all 44 episodes in a span of a couple weeks), I need to take this time to reveal my love for everything Caroline Forbes. Since day one, when she was just a bratty, neurotic, selfish non-vampire, I have been hook, line, and sinker for the blonde beauty. I loved her with Matt, I love her with Tyler, and I'd probably love her with anyone.  

Steve: Um, what Dan said? What I guarantee Eric is going to say? I really don't have much to add other than that 1. Caroline and Tyler stole every scene last night, even before they hooked up, and 2. This Round Table panel is apparently, collectively in love with Candice Accola.

Eric: OMFG. Did you see that hot sex scene!!? Did you hear their witty banter? I love Forwood enough to get over my jealousy of Tyler for stealing my crush.

Besides making him blurt out names awkwardly, what do Jeremy's visions want?

Dan: This is a tough one. I think they want him to say "I see dead people" at least once before they attempt to do anything else. Maybe they want revenge on those that killed them. Johnny Gilbert and Stefan better watch their backs. Jeremy and his fresh haircut might be after them soon.

Steve: Jeremy was brought back to life against what we were told was the natural order administered by the witches. Perhaps now he and he alone can help them the same? Not that I know how that would work. Maybe he will do some Internet research on it next week. This is TV to Bing about, I'm told.

Eric: Avenging their death seems to easy and obvious. I mean, that's Ghost 101. Maybe they just watched True Blood's awful last season and need help finding a medium to hop into.

Favourite Quote/scene: Caroline compelling Tylers date to leave
Will Stefan ever return? of course but it will take a while, Klaus is the main obstacle Delena: yes definately, they havnt teased it this much not to let it happen but again it will be drawn out, hope its at least nearly there by mid-season Forwood: are awesomee, made the epiosde last night! so much chemistry and just genuienly fun lines Jeremys visitors: i dont know and I am no more eager to find out. I was disappointed by it last night, Matt is boring forget about him.. it felt a little forced between them two. it is the only thing I would crictisise about last nights episode.
