I agree with almost everything everyone is saying except the one or two stelena fans. Ugh they r so damn boring. More delena, forwood, klaus etc.


TOTALLY agree with this recap, 100%.


I actually REALLY liked thisepisode but I have to agree...the plot lines are starting to get filled with holes. If the town doesn't address the murder next week, I tihnk I'll be really dissapointed.


I totally agree with you Matt Richental. And btw, I think if Elena kissed Stefan before she left him alone in the cellar or something saying that she couldn't love a ghost forever, maybe Stefan would have gotten his feeling back or something. I mean he looked at her in that sort of way only Stefan looks at Elena. COME ON ELENA, KISS HIM FOR GODS SAKE!


You did forget to mention that this episode said nothing whatsoever about four charachters with the names of Tyler, Katherine, Rebekah, and the vampire-eating, vampire-killer vampire. They comepletely left out the cliffhangers from last week. And seriously, if Rebekah was determined to take over Carolines life and make her miserable like she was so determined to do last week, why was she nowhere to be seen? What, were she and Tyler passed out from too much drinking (hardy har har)? This episode definately didn't have the awesomeness that this entire season has had so far. WAY off their game on this one.


Didn't see anyone else say this, but I think there is a possibility that Jeremy is thinking about joining Anna and leaving the land of the living. Remember how he told her she wouldn't be alone and that he loved her, what does that mean?


Best description for this episode.
Boggart as the word Riddikulus was all I could say, followed by laughter.

Jeremy kissing Anna has consequences, but Elena kissing her boyfriends brother none. Seriously ..

@ Carte

Damon and Elena, and Katherine with Elijah. Since I relate to Stefan anybody but Elena or Katherine. Lexie was perfect ... IMO


I didn't dislike the episode. I guess I found the old appearances novel because I never watched those it was all background for me. And Mason was a babe. Everyone was compelling for me - it took me a while to warm to most of the heroes and find them not dull, but I am fully into Caroline, Elena, Damon, Alaric, et good on that...

It liked the Bonnie centricness.... I enjoy Bonnie when she is given work to do, and I felt like she actually had some better development opportunities here, with her Grams and having to face that she put herself out there pretty far for a guy who's acting like a real doofus. I think she handled it well - she can be kind of emotionally monotone, but I think it's coming across that it's a superficial calm with a lot more behind it. I hope they let her grow it. And TBQH (mostly because I think he's hot) I hope they have Jeremy man up, since he devolved quickly into a stupid teenager in the face of Anna, who (though adorable) is incredibly pathetic and their whole thing is even more so, so based on neediness, not love (J can say what he wants about his love for Anna, not buying it - he just doesn't know any better). I'd be in favor of him getting it together in order to get back together with Bonnie, because I still think they have potential - and maybe this bump in the road could put the much needed heat back in their interactions. Jeremy just needs to choose not to be a boy anymore.

I dig the overall themes the episode approached...what is (and isn't) love, really; what are the healthy limits of what we do and endure in the name of it. I thought it was fakirly successul in bringing some of those basics out of the usual gore and drama.


This was not my favorite episode either. But, I will let it slide this once... Even the best shows have an off episode or two. As long as next week's show is the epicness that we have come to love!! thanks for the recap!!


Damon gets Elena, Stefan gets Katherine, Alaric ends up wit mrs. Lockwood, Caroline gets waxed, Tyler roams mystic falls trying to impregnate women to make "puppies" , Bonnie loses her powers and then she and Jeremy start having a real relationship, and sheriff Forbes admits she is a lesbian and starts dating klaus' sister. I'm just saying..
