The Vampire Diaries > The Vampire Diaries Review: A Deadly MiStake? > Comments Page 7
I used to be a "die-hard fan" until this season. There is no direction to the plot. Our favorite characters (Jeremy, Tyler, Katherine, Matt) are either gone or useless. Did they switch writers or something? Because I am completely bored with all of this wandering around like mentioned before. There's no excitement or humor anymore either. I'm bored, and frankly disappointed in this series.
Along with horses lol.Easter Bunny much ? #thumbsdown
Im fed to the teeth with the Lameness that Klaus has become.Season 2 did a great job of creating an aura of mystery around the (still up for debate) first and oldest living Vampire.But somewhere during this season he's just crashed and burned as someone to fear in this viewers eyes.I to now want the show to bring on an actual villian that instills fear in the hearts of all that is good in Mystic falls.Not some second rate villian who spends far to much time monologing about what they intend to do,but rather just DO . . . . Kinda like The Joker in The Dark Knight.In the movie he says he never has a plan,he just does what he does.An absolute psychotic Vampire in that vein is something I would personally love to see.
And I laugh out loud at the now classic line from Rose in season 2 when she said "Elijah is the easter bunny compared to klaus" hahahaha.
Last I recall Elijah was'nt trying to get some of that Vampire pie,and being a total dweeb drawing Picures of said pie along with h
If this is what its like to be a die hard fan...accepting rehashed and old shit from a second rate writer, then i'm glad i'm just a die soft fan.
I personally enjoyed this episode. I feel like the Vampire Diaries has progressed throughout the seasons and I honestly have not been displeased by any episodes like a lot of people on here seem to be. I guess you have to be a real die-hard fan to accept all that the show has become and the path that its going down.
Bring Katherina back! Can't believe I'm writing this since I couldn't stand her either but at least, there's some comfort in knowing that fighting her isn't like filling the Danaids's barrel.
The show should stop trying to satisfy shippers: it has lost some of its appeal.
Rebekah annoys the hell out of me, can you spell desperate? She's like the perfect foil to what would have been an Elena Gilbert's vampire alter-ego. Honestly, I hate Barbie Klaus's character but can't the girl get a break and get someone who really loves her? She's one of the few people there who knows what the words "genuine" and "loyal" mean. She's a person of her word: if she promises to make you suffer, she doesn't renegade on it and if she decides to help you, she'll do it. I respect that.
Good thing Sage's dead: whenever I watched her, she looked constipated to me. The whole "I used my feminine wiles to get I want" was too cheap of a supposedly 900 years old vampire.
I think Kol will be the next original to die and then we'll be left with Klaus, Rebekah and Elijah who will cross over hopefully to get-lost-until-season-5 land. Bring Katherina back! Can't believe I'm writing this since I couldn't stand her either but at least, there's some comfort in knowing that fighting her i
I agreed with everything you wrote until you started bashing my gal, Bonnie. Yet, it's ok cause we'll agree to disagree on how malleable she's in front of a psychotic vampire who tried to kill her before (remember when he was impersonating Alaric?) Anyways! This season wasn't as intriguing as the others, I'm sick of the Originals s/l: just give them their own TV shows or ship them to the Secret Circle for what I care but enough with the practically-impossible-or-not-recommended-to-kill plot. It's like having to deal with a blackhead.
I think Elijah turned Rose, it'll be full kinda full circle for Damon, since he hooked up with both his sirer and his sirer's sirer, kinda incestuous even for Vampire Land.
Rebekah annoys the hell out of me, can you spell desperate? She's like the perfect foil to what would have been an Elena Gilbert's vampire alter-ego. Honestly, I hate Barbie Klaus's character but can't the girl get a break and get someone who really loves her? She's one of the few peo
Shoot me now. SOOOOOOO much garbage shooting through the atmosphere.
I enjoyed this episode so much more than the past two and it has been my favorite season by far. I didn’t like the way they used Katherine last season; she was lost, I hated the character of Rose and couldn’t wait till she was gone, and the Damon and Elena kiss wasn’t that great (sue me). BUT because I like the overall writing and the characters, I am going to continue to watch. I do not watch for one sole person/reason and actually want the show to stay on air so I will put up with a few bad ones. No show is ever perfect and lives up to fans’ expectations all the time.
Wow-so many complaints and negativity. The whole idea behind the show is a human girl being in love with two brothers that happen to be vampires. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but the relationships on the show are the MAIN focal point regardless if it is in the romantic sense or not. And the triangle is finally starting to go somewhere with Elena not being completely aware of her feelings for Damon but not being in denial either. Their pace of relationship, while slow to some, is very realistic to me. Her and Stefan barley knew each other before they fell in love and here we get to see how her and Damon’s relationship has grown over the course of three seasons. People complain about how boring the show is when an episode isn’t focused on the triangle or vice versa. This episode gives us maybe ONE scene in which something significant happens (in regards to the triangle); I wouldn’t call that “shoving down our throats”. It’s like TVD can never win. I enjoyed thi
@Matt: that Bonnie comment is lame... seems like you just don't like Bonnie period.
anybody can be manipulated when the lives of their loved ones are threatened. Stefan did the same damn thing to almighty Klaus himself by stealing the coffins..
@carol, what you copy and pasted was not a review, but a dry and condensed narration of the episode. For those of us who've seen the show, we don't need a play by play of scenes. A review has opinions of the reviewer. It makes it interesting to see what another person's opinion of the episode is. If you want to read summaries, read the Wall Street Journal. If you want a good review, this would be it.
@Matt, no offence to you but this is what i consider a good review, without all the whining from the reviewer. No copyright infringement intended, Wall Street Journal.
Alaric, Stefan and Damon are hard at work turning the last oak into stakes. When they’re done, Damon urges Ric to put his ring back on. Bonnie’s herbs seem to be working, so there should be no danger of him going rogue again. Ric complies and puts on the magic ring.
Then the brothers meet with Caroline, Elena, and Matt, brandishing the stakes. They explain that they’re going to try to vanquish the Originals by killing one. Stefan wants to target Rebekah.
Speaking of Rebekah: She’s escorting Finn back to the mansion with Klaus. Sage is there, waiting for him; the two embrace. They go on a walk, where Sage lets him know that she never stopped loving him—and that she doesn’t want him to die. Then Rebekah ducks out to kidnap Damon, knocking out Ric in the process. Stefan eventually comes home and finds R
And since it is supposed to be a triangle, Elena is suppose to worry and love Stefan and Damon equally. I don't even like the triangle but it is the bases of the show. Although, I think that the show should have been about the brothers. I actually like Bonnie tonight, but this reviewer never liked Bonnie and never will, so....... whatever.
Kevin Williamson really needs to come back and start writing again. Every since he left to do The Secret Circle TVD just hasn't had the same edge and it does kinda seem to be lagging this season. Don't get me wrong though! I LOVE TVD! It's my favorite show and I am a HUGE fan. I would watch it even if it started really sucking. It just seemed like the last couple years really had direction and I don't really know what this season is leading toward in the season finally...the last two seasons you knew it was leading toward something big or crazy was gonna happen. Kevin come back!!!!!
@andrea Michael didnt sired the sibling, techically, Tatia sired the sibs. Siring is about whose blood you drink and Esther fed her children's Tatia blood to turn them in the spell and than they killed their first human.
Everyone is forgetting one critical thing about twist. Klaus killed Michael earlier this season how come none of his sires died.
Also I think they missed an opportunity with Sage. She wasn't weak and strong as an original. I am a fan of the actress from Smallville. She could have been a good character. I wish they would just kill Alaric already instead of bringing on a character just to be disposable. that's the sign of poor season.
Bonnie, doesn't need to go, Elena does. And she can take the stupid triangle with her. Damon, Stefan and Elena all need to date other people. And I think Elijah is the vampire daddy to Rose, Katherine,Damon and Stefan.
This review makes you seem like you don't like the show. If you don't like the show then stop watching it. And the "dream" that Damon had, that was Rebecka messing with his head... not him making it his own dream. And the whole story line of this show is suppose to be Elena falling in love with two vampire brothers, so having that "love triangle" going on is pretty much the main plot.
@ Lizzie. Excellent post. Its nice to see people who post here with some actually cohesive and logical arguments. Mostly when i post along those lines i get some Elena/Delena/Stelena loving maniac who refuses to see that the show is circling the drain in the writing department. Its hard to find people who can separate bad writing and non existing character development from "attacking their favorite character or ship".
but it was appropriately weaved into the story.
The show is filled with mind-boggling curve balls and superfluous characters. The writer also has a habit of blatantly teasing the audience and not following through. There's a serious problem when the audience has to question why the villains are being hunted. None of the "bad" guys scare me anymore. All of the vampires have lost their edge; they are one-dimensional and boring. This is just bad, bad, bad, writing. I hope that better days are on the horizon. Meanwhile, pass me the popcorn so I can see how this train wreck ends.
TVD used to be a well-written show, but has descended into an uninteresting series with campy characters and bizarre twists. It's hard for me to take the show seriously anymore. I understand that some people still love the show. I used to be passionate about it, too. But I also know bad writing when I see it.
Many of my favorite characters have gone MIA; now that the season finale is imminent, they are popping up out of the blue. Twists and turns are supposed to feel natural, not forced. A well-crafted show has twists that are believable elements of the story -- deep characterizations of the main characters should not be sacrificed as a result.
The show hardly pauses to properly develop the existing characters. What are Elena and the gang's plans now that high school is over? Or maybe they intend to spend all their days solving vampire crimes. Before, we used to see them in school occasionally, or having some kind of a life outside of all the mayhem. The latter was still there,
Bah, better to think to “Always turn a negative situation into a positive situation." Rather than say the Triangle is going on forever, state that at least the series won't end tomorrow... we are from a sadist POV on most days aren't we?
And always the beloved Caroline keeps getting the opportunity to shine. Character developing each episode from being forgiving and less judgemental. Thus a pleasure to watch.
@Allison C, And Where is Katherine? Ans: Using her head to stay away from being character assassinated.
P.S As of the latest phantom written book, Moonsong... the victor is currently Stefan.
Better than the last 2 but the season as a whole is still poor. Care, Bekah, and Klaus were good. The twist was great.
