The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "All My Children"

by at . Comments

Tick... tick... tick...

The clock almost ran out on Elena on the final episode of The Vampire Diaries for a few weeks, but Damon and Elena came to their true love's rescue. Much to the chagrin of Bonnie, of course.

In this edition of the TV Fanatic Round Table, staff writers Matt Richenthal, Eric Hochberger and Dan Forcella relive "All My Children" while wondering: what the heck will they do on Thursday nights until March 15?!?

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

What was your favorite scene from the episode?
Matt: The cave-based, gasoline-laden exchange between Elena and Rebekah. The former totally called the latter out on her vulnerabilities, but the latter still holds a trump card over her human foe: Rebekah has slept with Stefan and Damon.

Eric: Damon turning Bonnie's mom. Not because it was particularly riveting, but because I'm glad to have my evil Damon back. Poor Klaus has been going too soft on me since he discovered what our Round Table has known for years: Caroline is awesome.

Dan: I absolutely loved the few bonding moments between Damon and Stefan. They're slowly but surely returning to their old ways, and each of them recognizes that they were better off that way. Damon did always make a better bad guy.

So, is Meredith really the Mystic Falls Murderer?
Matt: THE Mystic Falls Murderer? Probably not, it seems too obviousy. A Mystic Falls murderer? Yes, if her aim is as steady as her surgical incisions.

Eric: Oh, just paint the girl red and give her some gills. Yeah, I remember my 10th grade English class. What I'm trying to say here is I don't care how much you try to trick us, she is NOT the murderer. Nobody keeps those documents around unless they're investigating. Now as for the knife and shooting Alaric, well, I'll just have to tune in on March 15 with the rest of you.

Dan: Yeah, like anyone has ever had a hidden knife and not been the one going around town murdering people?!? In all seriousness, though, she did just shoot Señor Ric, so we can't count her out just yet.

Biggest heart string tugger: Damon's speech about guilt to Stefan, Elijah's speech about humanity to Rebekah or Caroline's speech to Elena about Bonnie's pain?
Matt: Elijah FTW! And not just because this is an easy way for me to plug my interview with Daniel Gillies. What a complicated, conflicted character The Vampire Diaries has created here. Only TVD can depict someone tearing out another's heart one moment, and then have the viewers' hearts melting over this same someone the next moment.

Eric: Option four: learning that there's a new tree, and thus a chance to actually lose my favorite new cast members to a plan we won't see fizzle out due to everyone's love of Elena. Also, Elijah's speech.

Dan: It definitely wasn't the last option  Caroline giving Elena a guilt trip about Bonnie's pain? I love her as much as anybody at this Table (well, maybe not Eric) but Caroline was in the wrong here. Elena has had just as much pain as anybody in Mystic Falls. Her entire family is gone. Give her a break, and let her bond with Bonnie.

What line would you use to pick up Caroline at a bar?
Matt: Hybrid? More like LOWbrid! I'll make you howl at the moon, baby.

Eric: Well, geesh, after learning that romantic drawings don't work, I'm currently tearing up plan one. But don't worry, after watching seven seasons of HIMYM I got plenty of Barney Stinson tricks up my sleeves. Yes, and most of those will involve magic.

Dan: The same one Josh Duhamel used to pick up his now wife Fergie: "You're hot." 60% of the time, it works every time.

Is this the last we've seen of Esther?
Matt: I'm actually gonna say yes. Why bother to return after that debacle of a plan? She should be spending her time getting as far away as possible from creepy Finn anyhow.

Eric: No! This is The Vampire Diaries! Even if they did manage to kill Esther for the second time, there's always "Ghost World."

Dan: Do not talk about Ghost World in my presence. I've been repressing those memories like it's my job. And no, this isn't the last we've seen of Esther. She will be back for another battle or two, as soon as she figures out what her weird son Finn's deal is.

wow I really love the selective memory most people have....Yes what Damon did was selfless and he gets so much credit for it and when Stefan sacrificed everything to save his brother like I don't know how many times this season he gets an occasional job well done , because he saved the 'precious' Damon. It's so annoying.

Each round table from every episode keeps us guessing to what will come up for the rest of season 3.I mostly keep wondering if things will go back to normal and if the mysteries will be solved. This information keeps all the fans on the edge of their chairs. ;|

littlej - OK YES, THIS SHOW IS ABOUT DAMON/ELENA/STEFAN, BUT WITHOUGHT OTHER CHARACTERS THER WOULD BE NO SHOW! AND WITHOUT FAN SUPPORT WATCHING, THERE WOULD BE NO SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO THE WRITERS SHOULD LISTEN TO THE FANS AND WOT THEY WANT, WHICH IS VARIETY OF DIFFERENT STORIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOT JUST THEM 3. IF YOU WISH THAT PEOPLE ATOP WATCHING, THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN! AND THEN YOU WANT HAVE A SHOW TO WATCH EITHER BECAUSE IT WILL BE CANCELLED DUE TO LACK OF RATINGS.

1)Actually the 1st question doesn't work with me cause as hard as I trie I just can't choose one best scene and I end up choosing all of Damon's scenes ;)
2)I've said it once and I'll say it again if she's not the the Mystic Falls Murderer (which looks like) then she is up to something else.
3)Well, all the 3 of them were awesome but I'd choose Damon's, I've fall in love with that scene cause it was an honesty moment between the Salvatore brothers, it showed how much Damon cares about his brother so he chose to be the one who will be hated for turning Bonnie's mother into a vampire and helped Stefan to get back to his old self by saving him from another guilt feeling that it could be a no turning back point for Stefan.

Why are some people so obsessed with Caroline?!
This show is about Elena and the Salvatore brothers. So if sb can't stand that he or she should probably stop watching

ok main character is Elena,ok!but I can't understand why everything is about elena so much!everybody in this show sacrifices for her!it started to become ridiculuos!Caroline's storyline is more interesting than elena's I think!writers should focus on Caroline's more!

I love Elijah's character, he is a very interesting man-vampire and has so much appealing. I hope that the producers creat a spin-off with the Orginal Family like Daniel said it would be for adults which it would be wonderful since I am 31 years old and sometimes I find kind of anoying to see boring stories about teenagers in Vampire Diaries

I hope Stefan tells Elena that Damon took the fall for him with turning ABBY! it was meant to be Stefan who turned HER! Stefan LOST the COIN TOSS, but Damon lied and said that he lost and that he will do it. Damon did this for Stefan, and admitted that Elena doesnt want him, so his gonna back off now and told Stefan to go for it. Damon told Elena when he found out that Stefan ruined the Klaus killing plan to Save him! BUT Stefan is selfish and probably WONT tell Elena. Stefan knew that Damon was taking the fall and let him do it anyway, otherwise how did he know that he lost the coin toss. HE SAW IT!! SELFISH. I hope Damon and Rebeka get together. She would be good to him. As for ELENA in this episode... I have no comment for her anymore. She tried being a hero and went off with Elijah and wrecked the plan! She needs a few punches in the head, maybe then she would LISTEN.
Bonnie suffers AGAIN coz of her.

4.She's too smart for that,i was really suprised with the way klaus is acting towards caroline,klaus of all people is pursue an 18year old girl,i'm not buying the idea of klaroline at all but i was really shocked by his actions toward her. 5.Nope,probably not even finn,kol and elijah.They can't leave that storyline unfinished.I was also suprised that their is another white oak tree,how come that they didn't know about it including the esther herself coz she could have use it to kill them and who drew that sketches in the wall by the way?
