The Vampire Diaries > The Vampire Diaries Review: Breaking the Bloodline > Comments Page 7
Great recap! Loved when you said, “Heck, the relationship between the brothers is more interesting than the one either shares with Elena. It's really at the heart of The Vampire Diaries” because that really has been my feeling for awhile. I do enjoy the character of Elena, but it was nice for someone to FINALLY say what I have been wanting them to all along-that because everyone is trying to save her-other people are dying. Is it wrong that my favorite part of the episode was Stefan ignoring her call and Damon hanging up on her? After the last episode and her “get over it” she deserved to see him with Rebekah and he should tell her to get over that. Only so many times I can see Alaric hurt; hope he is okay!
Wait I've got it. Stefan and Elena fall in love at school. Stefan breaks up with Elena and leaves town to give her a better life. Damon falls in love with Elena while Stefan is gone and at the very least they become best friends. Elena goes and saves Stefan from himself. Elena dumps Damon and even gives up on their friendship in order to be with Stefan again.
Of course, if we are talking about moral ambiguity, the real toast needs to be given to Elijah. Even for a vampire, he deserves a medal. Three Cheers to Elijah.
Maybe Elena could go to prom with Stefan but have a talk outside the dance with Damon.....or maybe Elena could buy Damon's old truck and drive it to school...
I absolutely loved Klaus in this episode! I really hope he and Caroline stretch out the tension\love game this season. I really dislike Elena and Damon. I want Stefan to move on and get over Elena and for the show to drop this particular triangle which sucks. Isn't it creepy how Damon has slept with Elena’s great great (x#) grandma Katherine, her bio mom Isobel and now wants Elena? Bizarre. The Originals are the best thing about this season rather than sad sack Stefan and Damon. I vote for an Original spin off with Elijah, Klaus, Rebekah, and Kol. Also loved the idea that Esther’s spell would first turn the vampires into humans (SO VAMPS CAN BE TURNED BACK!!!). Imagine if Klaus was only a werewolf or Elijah only a human? That would be an awesome show too.
I liked the episode. I love the moral ambiguity of the characters.
As always, I was frustrated with Elena. They all but begged her to not involve herself anymore with Esther's plan and she responds by going off with Elijah??? Typical Elena. I know she did it to try to not arouse suspicion but when she voluntarily left her home with him she ended up putting people she loved at risk. She couldn't have foreseen getting kidnapped but still...
I wasn't upset about Abbey's turning since we aren't invested in her but I felt bad for Bonnie. I love the idea of her being on the outs with Elena for a bit. They should develop her character more and this arc might be a chance for her to grow. She now has yet another reason to dislike the Salvatores and even more reason to dislike the Originals.
Speaking of which, I love Elijah's admission that he and his siblings are monsters. I also love that at her heart, Rebekah is a scared girl who wants to be loved and accepted.
And the Elena marries Stefan ( but she dances with Damon at the wedding) and she gets pregnant on their honeymoon and Damon turns out to be soulmates with their child.
I adored Rebekah on tonight's ep. I agree about being more interested about the sibling relationship between the Salvatore brothers than their relationships with Elena (Katherine 2.0). I think they should go the Winchester route and dump the girl, just focus on the brothers. And I am dying to see Cassidy Freeman as Sage on the next episode!!!!!!
Wow I've got an idea...how about letting Damon and Elena fix motorcycles together and then Damon teaches her to ride, takes off his shirt, and then Stefan gets her back.
I HONESTLY STILL DONT THINK ITS MEREDITH ITS MAYBE TOO SIMPLE :/
Great episode. Loved Rebekah! Is it bad that I did not care if Elena was killed? Writers work on her character,make her likeable again. I miss Elijah already!! :( I hope he comes back. Klaus and Rebekah are fun but Elijah is the true OG to me.
P.S It was a nice Double Bluff on Meredith being implicated as the killer. Wonder what the Round Table thinks of this?
I really, really hope that Alaric's not dead. That ring may save him from dying, but that's only if a supernatural being kills him.
I think to say Bonnie is boring is too much when she is hardly on screen. She missed the last episode and now she is back just like that. It is clear the storyline leans more to giving Elena and Caroline screen time than their friend Bonnie who the show treats as a 'call girl'- only appears when there is need.
I was half expecting an "24" Elena Countdown clock as the episode progressed.
There was of course to much DES shipping going on. So from an Anti-shipper POV for TVD, by all means start the complains...
