The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "The Hybrid"

by at . Comments

Klaus failed, Anna warned and Caroline's father paid his daughter a visit on this week's episode of The Vampire Diaries.

Which ghost do you trust? Who inspired you the most? And might the show's love triangle be growing tiresome? Come along with Round Table participants Matt Richenthal, Steve Marsi and Dan Forcella as we delve into "The Hybrid."

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

What was your favorite scene from the episode?
Matt: Klaus actually losing it for a change. The guy is so calm and collected, so I took his anger over the hybrid failure to mean he's seriously scared of whoever the heck has been giving him directions.

Steve: Damon's speech to Elena at the end. Hanging on every word and moment of silence, I was legitimately unsure if they would go there. Full-fledged couple or not, the chemistry is palpable and the relationship complicatedly spellbinding.

Dan: Klaus in all of his glory, with all of his dead werewolves in the woods, just waiting for them to wake up and become the army of hybrids he dreamed of. Just listening to him declare "You build your army so big, that no one ever dares pick a fight" gave me chills. It's just too bad that it all came crumbling down around him only a few hours later.

Vampire Diaries Round Table

Elena's torn heart: Growing more interesting, or growing more tiresome?
Matt: Teetering on the edge of tiresome. Elena said it herself to Damon last night when he kept pressing her about leaving the woods: yes, she cares about him, why must he keep bringing that up? She's with Stefan and that isn't changing, so let's stop catering to the Delena shipper with such frequent teases.

Steve: Interesting. See my first answer. If they keep dragging this out interminably, my mind will change, because this is the kind of thing that seems destined to grow tiresome. But when Damon called her out about why she was ready to leave, that caught my off guard and raised the emotional stakes. Brilliant.

Dan: I'm going to go with interesting. For a while I had no doubts about her and Stefan, but as of late that has changed. I don't care how many Ian Somerhalder quotes I read that say there will never be Delena, I'm holding out hope for it. And as long as Damon keeps showing up in her bedroom while Stefan is out and about with Klaus, there's only so much longer she can keep denying the blue-eyed beauty.

Who do you trust: Anna or Vicki?
Matt: Anna. It's easy to forget because it's been awhile, and we tend to place the dead on a pedestal, but Vicki sort of sucked when she was alive.

Steve: Vicki. Why? Because I'm on Team Matty and they're sibs. Step off, Anna.

Dan: Neither. Never trust ghosts.

More inspiring speech: Elena telling Alaric he's part of the family, or Damon telling Elena to remember how she felt in Stefan's absence?
Matt: I know I bashed it above, but taken on its own, Damon's words to Elena were moving: When I drag my brother back from the edge and deliver him back to you, I want you to remember the things you felt when he was gone.

Steve: Elena's. Ric needed to man up, and after Coach E all but begged him to summon whatever he had left to carry on, he'd have run through walls for her. Maybe Klaus should try to be a better motivator with his next hybrid army.

Dan: I have a newfound love for Ric and his fancy haircut so I'm going to choose the former. He's basically Elena's father at this point, or at the very least, her crazy uncle, so why not break down and make him a part of the family? He deserves it.

More surprising development: Bill as Caroline's father, Tyler tracking down the pack's whereabouts off Elena's phone or The CW not mentioning that Jeremy used Bing to learn more about ghosts?
Matt: Tyler's incredible phone navigation. He had one piece of information - Stefan is in Tennessee - and once they got into the mountains, Elena pointed out to Alaric the precise spot where Tyler said the pack would be. Impressive. We could have killed Bin Laden years ago if Tyler was on the case.

Steve: The last-second reveal of Bill's identity was tremendous, but I've gotta go with the lack of Bing plugs. How do you work that in so shamelessly for 1-2 years, then not in EITHER STORY LINE in which characters look things up online? Maybe the CW is really TV to Google Map about.

Dan: I have to go with my man Jack Coleman as Bill. I did not see the former Noah Bennett being Caroline's father. The best thing about having single mothers and fathers on television is that you can bring their former spouses in at the most opportune times, as we saw here with Mr. Forbes: NHRG. The biggest question becomes, what will Bill do with his daughter locked up down there?

@ V.D. No, you misunderstood that. What he meant was that Carol Lockwood was not born a Lockwood, she married one. The way he said it means that she is not even from one of the founding families. She only learned of the vampires and the town council after she married. Unlike Bill Forbes which grew up in it, and his family has been involved for 150 years.

IF CAROLINE'S FATHER IS A PART OF THE LOCKWOOD FAMILY AND IT'S CAROLINE'S DAD... THAT COULD MEAN THAT CAROLINE IS A POTENTIAL HYBRID TOO!! SHE COULD HAVE THE WEREWOLF LINAGE FROM HIS FATHER, BUT NEVER REALLY GOT ACTIVATED BECAUSE (TELL ME IF I'M WRONG) SHE ACTUALLY NEVER KILLED ANYBODY... AND JUST LIKE KLAUS, SHE BECAME A VAMPIRE BEFORE DOING SO. AND WHEN SHE BECAME A VAMPIRE, SINCE THE WEREWOLF PART WAS NOT ACTIVATED, SHE DIDN'T DIE LIKE THE REST OF THE PACK ON THIS EPISODE.... On other note, I think that the breeding did not work maybe because Elena is not really dead? Great episode all in all. Loved the last seconds of it. As usual...

I am confused. Is Caroline's dad related to Tyler's dad because in one of the scenes he said to Tyler's mom, "you married into the family." If Caroline's dad is related to Tyler's family, then she is also somewhat related to Tyler! The writers have some explaining to do.

Well im a full on delena fan! Stefan is just to boring in a relationship to me! Their isn't that much chemistry between them but elena and damon WOW they have some major chemistry. Im still hoping for the day they decide to let them hook up. I mean I like Stefan as the "ripper" better anyway he's more fun. Now I don't think they will let them be together any time soon but maybe in a another season or 2. Hardly anything else on the show is like the book so why not. Damon is just so damn fine! When he's talking to elena about stuff he's just got that look of love! When he grabbed her face in the bedroom! I completely melted. And that whole speech about trying toto get her toto say how she feels. Hes trying to get it out she loves him too. I know she loves Stefan but they could kiss once right. Eventually I think she will crack. Its a tv show anything can happen! I mean nobody ever thought Joey would end up with pacey or chandler with Monica or buffy sleeping with spike! That proves anything can happen! Come on delena im rooting for you!

I loved the show last night, better than last weeks premier. Everything was good about this episode! Elena convincing ric 2 move in n play daddy. I love ric he's a cool dude and i like that after the hate he had 4 damon he is now his closest friend. The scene w clause lookin like he was gonna cry after all his hybrids DIED and giving his blood 2 STEPHAN, mixed w beer ( i guess 2 get him drunk, LOL) was actually kinda moving. How sad that such a powerfull vamp/wolf hybrid has only 1 friend that doesn't even like him. Carma! Thats what he gt 4 killing his bro. 4 a moment i thought he was gonna realize that elena is in fact alive. It wa moving when stephan saved his bro from getting a nasty wolf bite and damon realized that his bro does love him and theres still hope 4 getting the stephan we all love back from da dark side. The best was saved 4 last, damon in elenas bedroom probing her 4 the answer he wanted 2 hear that she cares 4 him. 4 a moment i thought he woulld kiss her but unfortunatly he didnt. The chemistry between these 2 is steamy. So obvious that elena 4 a long time know has had feelings 4 the dark hair, blue eyed bad boy vamp. Who the hell wouldnt. Last weeks episode of damon getting out of the bath tub was oh so yummy! Ohh la la que rico! " lol. Love this show from day one!

if there is a cure maybe when stefan becomes good again he can become human and then him and elena could have kids in the future.

1. Tyler and his mom/Caroline and her dad
2. Tiresome
3. Don't trust ghosts.
4. Elena and Alaric
5 HRG is Caroline's father! I'd make a Heroes joke but I'm trying to block all memory of that crapm (besides HRG and Sylar at times).

everyone seems so shocked tyler knew where the wolf tribe was. 2 things dont you remember when he left he went with that girl 2 find out more about it. and he may have just put in the coordinates in her phone so she went looking for stefan lets not forget she didnt find them she went looking. and i cant wait for more to build on with delena :D and tyler and his mom was a good scene :D
