About time we got some back story on Elena and her life before vampires.
I'm glad to see that Elena is finally getting (hopefully) an episode about her. We've seen Stefan and we're about to see Damon, but what about Elena? What about seeing the event that helped turn her into who she is today? Yes, it is a little bit late in coming, but at least it is coming. I think that Nina is a VERY talented actress, and I'm excited to see her rock her scenes.
For those who read the books: Could the flashback be triggered by Elena going over Wickery Bridge and, while dying (or just before being saved, as the TVD gods will probably play it), she remembers the previous dive?
I thinks its a good idea showing about the accident.
What's with the constant bashing with the flashbacks. There are far worst shows on television that poorly direct flashbacks. At least TVD does a decent job about it.
It's also called 'Retcon' [Retrospective Continuity] for reasons of giving or re-writing a story to give better continuity for a show. In the books we have the plot of 'The Guardian's' who intentionally wanted to kill Elena so she could become one of them, but the intervention of Stefan's actions caused their dead sea scroll timeline to go off a tangent. So whether a flashback for continuity, character development for Stefan, or Elena, or even the current storyline, have some faith.
@Tam:Nina is a very good actress,and its not that she plays katherine better or somethings,its just how the character "Elena" is written that's so annoying,this has nothing to do with the actress.I agree with some of the comments below,i think its a little too late for this flashback,it's not connected to any of the storyline except may be linked to stefan's humanity like somebone mentioned and i don't think their death should have any impact on stefan's humanity.
I'm sorry but you people are ridiculous!!! there is clearly a significance to showing the accident or they wouldn't show it. It will have something to do with the originals (which they couldn't show until now clearly, stefans humanity ( which they couldn't show until now), or something else that is relevant in this season. And as for Elena not caring about her parents, for 1 it's been a year and so much more has happened, it's best to move on in those situations, you think she does not think about her parents everyday? or that she doesn't visit their grave, just bc the show doesn't show it doesn't mean it's not going on in the back story. And Nina is a great actress, so maybe you should go find a new show to watch instead of saying negative things about it, why do you watch then??? SERIOUSLY!!!!!!
@ Borednow why do you talk about elena in this post when she is irrelevent its a flashback scene so nobody will expect character development you retard
Now go watch your buffy/Angel dvds to masterbate to
@Tam Elena isn't a actress retard
I don't think we can assume the flasback will be irrelevant to s3 SL or would have been better in s1. I think it will be more than just the crash scene shown and that the episode will give new insights into elena's connections to the original family and or the doppelgänger bond. We know from Bonnie's mum that mikael came after Elena when she was a toddler. Maybe others did too and the graysons were clued in to their daughter's status and wanted to protect her from it? The secret closet of vampire weapons at the Lakehurst could have additional significance. I also agree that the crash was likely caused by a supernatural, but I'm thinking maybe the original witch, or someone working for her. I've also thought in the past that it would be a great twist if Elena had been aware of vampires growing up, or had previously met Damon, Kat or even another random vamp, but had been compelled to forget all knowledge of vamps as part of some master plan or effort to protect her.
Either it will be a flashback scene or it will be a totally epic scene which goes like this:
it's night and the camera moves on the surface of the lake under the bridge and then something starts moving and it's from inside the lake and then water-explosions start to happen and then elena's parents can be seen walking out of the lake and then season 3 ends on a high note introducing us to the new villains!
also i think that the white oak tree is in mystic falls!they said that they want to explore why so menay supernatural things occur to this town particullary and the tree that can kill the originals is a great beggining to this arc also it can perfectly match the fact that elena's parents are back since both the roots of this tree and elena's parents were lying beneath mystic fall's ground!
ohhh anyone else think that elena's parents (if indeed come back) are the malakah spirits?
sorry for my horrible english!
OMMFG I am excited for it. I don't care how late the flashback is, it is still good to see. It's still relevant anyway because Stefan almost drove Elena off that bridge this season and what if he is thinking about what he did to her that night and the flashback appears on how he saved her? You people have to think of the relevant points. I am excited. Can't wait.
The new White Ash will have something to do with Wickery Bridge and I am pretty damn sure there was a vampire on that bridge that sent the Graysons over, likely to try and kill the doppelganger --
I continually see your posts on this show's boards as always being ridiculously negative. While I have to admit that sometimes your arguments make sense and the things that you say are valid (note: I said -sometimes-) other times I feel that you are simply being a troll. Honestly, if you do not like the show, why even waste your time commenting? In fact, why do you even tune in on Thursdays at -all-? You could easily spend that hour on Thursday watching your Buffy and/or Angel DVDs. I have no problem listening to the valid arguments and opinions of others. But when you have absolutely nothing positive to say ever (Except your mention of Caroline), then you should probably take a step back and realize what's important in your life. Give a critique, but find the good in things too. Signed, Myself and Every Devoted TVD Fan That Frequents These Boards That Is Tired of Your Bitching.
I have to agree, I dont much care for Elena, I actually think she is a bad actress, or played the part of cathrine better, at least then we knew she maybe had a brain, and could kinda act, caroline sucked at first but now i think she is the best one, aside from Damien (Ian) of course.. I do think she whines to much and is self absorbed, the parents thing should have come long time ago...
Will they be as bland pathetic and unlikeable as Elena Cardboard Swan is?
Also, too little, too late show. This should have happened in first season, back then, when we still cared about Miss Cardboard.
Now Elena could get disemboweled on screen for all I care and I could not care less. The only character with any emotional resonance is Caroline.
I care for Elena as much as for that chair that stands in boarding house and is shown every few episodes. She is bland, annoying, boring mary sue and its far too late to make us care about her. Two seasons too late.
Why do we need to relive that moment? What significance will it have? What is it connected to? As for the flashback being late, I could't agree more, because according to the TVD timeline, s3 was taking place a year after s1's events began, you would figure that Elena would have somehow grieved about her parents's death, since it was almost a "year" ago, but no, over that year she became so self-absorbed that the only thing she could remember on her first day of school was how she met Stefan...not how she was afraid to go back to school as the girl who had lost her parents...and what was the last time she visited their grave?
Agree with Vampbarbie. This would've been much better as nightmares in season 1, when Elena and Jeremy were struggling with their deaths, or maybe in season 2, when Stefan and Elena learnt Grayson and Miranda were badass vampire hunters(whatever happened to that storyline anyway?), or maybe some flashbacks with Jenna or John. Anything, in fact, but these random flashbacks about something both Gilbert siblings are over and done with. Are the writers really this desperate?
This flashback of her parents is 2 season to late. She should of had nightmares about the crash starting in season 1. It should showed how much guilt she had for her parents death. This could of been really good for her character development then and if this about Stefan flashing back to saving her parents. Well why is he thinking about her parents death & Elena isn't?
Ooooo this might have something to do with Stefan turning his humanity back on- Or maybe im just hoping stefans going to turn it bak on soonish ( sooner rather than later lol)
Yay! Another flashback! Because the 100 flashbacks before that weren't enough!
isnt this flashback two seasons late? wtf they're writing out of their ass. What the bloody fuck does her "parents" death have to do with what's happening now? It's so random and stupid, it's another excuse to centre the storyline to Miss Mary Sue Cardboard. Julie Plec you make me sick
Elena parents will be talking about how perfect Elena is before they die. OMG like I am so excited.
hmm... This is a lot to take in. But still can't wait.
Interested to see how they will appear! will it be just the crash or more!?
