The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "Ghost World"

by at . Comments

For the first time in ages, The Vampire Diaries was a total bust this week. So we noted in our review of "Ghost World," and so Round Table panelists Matt Richenthal, Steve Marsi, Dan Forcella and Eric Hochberger detail here.

Agree with their takes? Disagree? Find them utterly hilarious? Weigh in now!

-------------------------------------------

What was your favorite scene from the episode?

Matt: Caroline brought her A game to a D episode. She cracked me up when she continually asked Bonnie if the dead witches were still around, and then she smacked some sense into Jeremy over the phone.

Steve: The last one. Regardless of how they got there, those cave drawings - and Alaric's dumbfounded expression looking at them - were pretty cool.

Dan: Elena finding Jeremy and Anna making out because it meant that Bon-Bon could finally drop that dead weight that is Jeremy Gilbert.

Eric: Damon's re-hashing of his Mason apology to Alaric. But, more importantly, Ric calling him on the bullshit. I know it's a lame scene by action standards, but when there's so many annoying ghosts run around and a lack of Forwood, I turn to my favorite bromance for entertainment.

Vampire Diaries Round Table

Are you sad Bonnie and Jeremy broke up?

Matt: No, because now it allows me to use this awesome pun: looks like Jonnie is off the spot now, huh, everyone?!?

Steve: Not really. Besides, now Bon-Bon will never smile.

Dan: See Question 1. I was sad that Bonnie was sad, but he doesn't deserve her.

Eric: Absolutely not! Like Dan, I felt like Jeremy doesn't deserve Bonnie. I get he's a tortured soul tormenting by the ghosts of girlfriends past, but if Matthew McConaughey could get past it, so should you. Besides, who cheats on their hot witch girlfriend with a ghost anyways. Not me.

Which returning ghost were you most happy to see?

Matt: Lexi, by default really. She's headed to 90210, as well, BT Dubs.

Steve: Grams. Jasmine Guy rocks, and this was the only visit from the great beyond that made any semblance of sense.

Dan: I wasn't really happy to see any of the main ghosts, so I'll say the tomb vamps that were there to wreak havoc on the founding fathers. At least they brought back a storyline that was interesting once upon a time.

Eric: Mason Lockwood! Not because I miss his character, but he rekindled a friendship that glues this show together. Go back to question number-one for further explanation. Closer runner up was, of course, Jasmine Guy. Anything even remotely resembling Dead Like Me always gets you bonus points in my book.

Which main character (Tyler, Katherine, Klaus, Rebekah) did you miss the most?

Matt: Sorry, but I'm gonna cheat and combine them all. They are all tied in to the main storyline on season three. Is it fine to take a break from the typical VD madness for a week? Absolutely. But my frustration here is that this break didn't even involve any main players, and was madder than usual! Slow things down to focus on one core relationship or something, don't speed the series up by tossing random ghosts at us.

Steve: Rebekah. See previous week's testosterone-fueled Round Table.

Dan: Klaus. The answer to that will always be Klaus for me. I didn't get to hear one "rippahh" this week.

Eric:Unless Rebekah was planning on showing up in a cheerleading uniform, I'm totally on team Klaus. That guy perfectly combines creepy and fun for me every week.

More random development: Lexi's detox skills, Damon's convertible ride, Mason's entire storyline or Jeremy's love for Anna?

Matt: Everything involving Mason was more confusing than Taylor Kinney's girlfriend's typical attire.

Steve: Amazingly, Jeremy's obsession with Anna, while a bit overblown considering they dated for like one week while she was alive, may have been the most believable of these options, since it was at least rooted in... something. I thought Stefan endured decades of misery and discipline to cure himself of his ripper ways with Lexi's help. Now there's an accelerated Detox program? Mason's reappearance still takes the randomness cake, however. He showed up to torture Damon (who somehow escaped that chair like nothing happened), then enlisted his help to go find a secret weapon to kill Klaus that he heard about on the other side, then vanished. Because ... he needed redemption? I trust the writers have a grander narrative in mind for the season as a whole, so I'll reserve some judgment. In the interim, though, it's hard to see this being done any worse.

Dan: Lexi's detox skills. Seriously, she just has these abilities all of the sudden? Okay... if she does, why wasn't Elena asking her what the heck she was doing, so she could attempt to do the same when Lexi left? I will be glad if another ghost never steps foot in Mystic Falls ever again.

Eric: Please, Damon has always had a nice convertible. Pick up your season 1 DVD. Now when Jeremy managed to fall head over heels for a former stalker he couldn't stand, that one will remain a mystery. Though we always want what we can't have. And I'm pretty sure ghosts fit in that category. Now, like Dan, I just want them to never show up again,

I do not watch "The Vampire Diaries" to see ghosts... The writers need to step it up - I don't watch it to see ghosts or witches or zombies or even werewolves... I want to see vampires! I want to see Stefan and Damon and Elena. I don't care if I ever see Jenna or Vicky again! And the Anna ghost can go away!

Favourite scene - the big reconciliation (sort of) between Damon and Alaric saved the day. I didn't like this ghosty episode at all. Am I sad about Bonnie and Jeremy? Jeremy kissed the ghost. I'd say the break-up was inevitable. I was happy to see Lexi, but the stuff she did during her brief comeback didn't make any sense. Who did I miss the most? Klaus, Klaus, Klaus all the way. I love this guy and I don't need anyone else at this point. More random development? Mason and Lexi were equally confusing, but the discovery in the cave may lead to something. Lexi's detox skills on the other hand… Well, that was just stupid.

What was your favorite scene from the episode?
Anything with Mason in it, at first I was bit confused why he was helping Damon but then to learn its to save Mason I understood. The fact that the Lockwood family has information on the Original Family is even better! Are you sad Bonnie and Jeremy broke up?
Nope, not even a little bit. I love Bonnie but she turned into a bit of a wimp when dating Jeremy and every viewer knows he was meant to be with Anna, I was sad to see her say goodbye to him but the fact it meant Pearl appeared was AWESOME! Which returning ghost were you most happy to see?
Grams, was wonderful to see her tell Bonnie some home truths. And to see her so strong again with her Grams beside her was awesome. And like my above comment I was happy to see Pearl. Which main character (Tyler, Katherine, Klaus, Rebekah) did you miss the most?
Tyler, him and Caroline are adorable to watch on screen. But I did miss Klaus what is it about this badie that makes him so intruiging to watch. More random development: Lexi's detox skills, Damon's convertible ride, Mason's entire storyline or Jeremy's love for Anna?
Lexi's detox skills... What on earth? Just leave Stefan he was lame when he wasn't drinking blood.

The absolute worst episode I can remember seeing. Alaric and Damon were the only real entertainment here but Mason was adorable laughing at Damon's non-apology and I liked that he demonstrated to Damon a much needed lesson, that revenge is not always needed. But there were only a couple gold nuggets in this one. Just a complete mess and now cave drawings, as long as the ghosts are gone, I'll gladly move on with the writers here. Where's Kat? Stefan didn't get any quips in and yes I missed Klaus saying Rippah too hahhahaha. I like him and hope he evolves into a regular character.

I also used to like stelena in the VERY beginning, I just thought it was puppy love. It was obvious what was gonna happen, just a question on how it would go down. I FEEL delena, no words have to be spoken its understood. They have the ability to take my breath away, stelena never could compare to that. Stelena is cute but delena is mature. I think IN the end its gonna be I love S but I'm in love with D.

I bet it really gets on you and your multiple personalities nerves that so many didn't like this episode so much. When it was so heavy on stelena and no delena. Just more proof that ur resistance is futile. I wonder what your next move is, I'm sure your foaming at the mouth haha. Stacey "babe" its ok Its just a tv show and if u have to work that hard maybe it really isn't meant to be. I could be so much meaner to you but I'm not defensive, childish. I feel sorry for u, its an unfortunate situation. Take you meds "babe" and try not to act like 10 different people to make your side look better represented. Lol
