@ Matt Richenthal, Finally a harsh and accurate review.
This show is soap driven through every turn. I'm waiting to see Matt LeBlanc as Dr. Drake Ramoray , walking into an elevator. What happened to story or character accuracy ? As for the triangle , only in the south does it work. Stefan deserves someone with similar loyalties. Delena, yes already ... Shame about Sage preferred her over Rebekah. As that girl is just hard to like.
FINALLY.....Someone on this staff speaks out about the great big run around FAILURE that this season has been. There was absolutely nothing new about this episode. Tortured Stefan, check. Remorseful Elena, check. Lovesick Damon, check. Elena loving both bros, check. I was even suspecting the whole Original bloodline thing. I called that scenario since before the season even began. The only ray of sunshine was Bonnie turning her back on Damon, it was a natural response for turning her mom. Even if he did it for the pure and holy Elena. I also loved the Caroline/Alaric conversation. But all in all, total disappointment. Plec just needs to get her ass fired.
Where the heck is Katherine?
the characters acted any differently then critics say those characters are out of character and there are plotholes ... if they act according to their personality or the plotline, they are boring.
considering the characters have been doing nothing else but acting out of character and having no common sense nor sense of logic for last season and half....
If the characters acted any differently then critics say those characters are out of character and there are plotholes ... if they act according to their personality or the plotline, they are boring. Lose lose situation for some hey. Love Klaus' quotes too in this episode and "Murder of One" was nicely named with the Originals bloodline story. Glad Stefan got out his revenge on Klaus mode. Can't wait for the next episode! Too long to wait!!
Agree with this review 100%. Disappointing episode. Is this normal? To have a disappointing episode this late in the season? A dream sequence fake out? Stefan getting Elena to admit feelings for Damon while Damon isn't even in the room? So odd. Bonnie has to go. Please. And it does surprise me that they're going with kill an Original, kill their bloodline. That seems ridiculous to me. I'm guessing Katherine, Stefan, Damon, and Caroline descend from Klaus.
Over Elena and the triangle. So next episode a Damon and Elena road trip...I really think both guys need a new girl at least for a little while. Interesting concept kill an orignal ....kill the blood line. Klaus showed Rebecca he could care less.. Still love Rebecca she just needs a hug and some lovin. Bonnie could be interesting but the writing has a factor in this . The show needs diversity. Also there needs to be a villain that is truely big and bad.
I loved this episode it was good and kinda sad at parts like when Finn died right in front of Sage when that happened I couldn't help but feel a little bad for her cause she just got him back and now he's dead forever then later she dies because Finn was the one that turned her. I can't wait till the next episode it looks really good and I'm so excited Jeremy's coming back.
I am sorry, but lets face it.. the storyline is not interesting enough right now to keep me from waiting for those 3 seconds in each episode where the Damon/Elena/Stefan triangle is dangled in my face. Then Elena is snotty to Damon and rolls her eyes like a teenager and the episode moves along, leaving me bored and annoyed. Then she can't even put on her big girl pants and say something more than "I don't know what I feel" to Stefan? Frustrating. I am sorry but we need a romantic pivotal moment soon or I am completely going to lose interest. Also, the fantasy moment that Damon had, complete waste of time. We already know what he wants and what he feels. Congratulations on beating a dead horse into the ground for the one millionth time by showing us that they have tension and that Damon loves Elena. I understand all about the explosive finale, but I also think we deserve a better build up.
I MISS TYLER:( since he will be back next episode, I may be back from hiatus. I haven't watched since forwood broke up. I, too have grown tired of the triangle and its time for the originals to go. If anyone has read the books could u tell me who Elena ends up with?
I'm sorry but who gives a shit if Bonnie's mom dies. The woman abandons her child twice and were supposed to care about her after the what 4 episodes she's been in (not to mention the whole parents must die thing VD has going on). Klaus hurting Jeremy, I understand if that's why Bonnie did the spell but her mom?
Also I'm going to go ahead and say Elijah turned Rose thus starting the vampire bloodline. Why Elijah? Because he and Rebecca are the only two originals that are actually important, and its would be a excuse to bring him back on the show.
This week's episode was okay. Definitely better than they have been recently. I feel like season 3 started out amazing and then dropped after the Holiday hiatus. Hopefully it picks up again soon. I'm getting a bit tired of all the Delena-teasing though. I love them together, but if the writers aren't going to make it happen then they should put us Delena fans out of our misery and make Elena choose already. I know the love triangle is a central theme of the show, but after 3 seasons it's getting a bit old.
Looking forward to the April 19 episode! *fingers crossed* that the rest of the season is amazing.
Oh how I love TVD but tonight my daughter and I both agreed it would be nice to get some new bad guys and some fresh story lines again. But I have hope that us viewers will be blindsided come the finale :)
Im so sad for this show. This season has been more let down than not. Here' s still hoping they can pull it out
Finally we were reminded of how evil Klaus is! It was almost like the writers forgot! And did anyone else see that Tyler's back next episode?!?! It's Forwood time!
Its official: this episode did not JUST jump the shark(the show has been casually jogging around the shark and jumping over it as a warm up for this entire season).
This episode jumped the shark while riding fracking titanic into fracking iceberg, with plec playing benny hill music in that very titanic.
I meant receiving.
What is up with the Bonnie hate, she was far from irritating today, for once I thank the writers for finally revealing the emotional damage she has been recording. Let's not pretend that Elena, Stefan and Damon would not roll over if they either of them were being threatened. Bonnie has to go, sorry but I want her to stay. If anything she is one of the most realistic characters on here, I would not gave lift a finger to save Damon, he snapped her mothers neck and made inappropriate comments about it. At least she called Elena about Damon.
Boring, full of retcons, plain pointless. So kids, what did we learn from this episode?
1. Elena continues being there and being useless. Seriously, I have seen an extras in the shows developed MORE than her.
2. show continues introducing characters and pointlessly murdering them to be "edgy".
3. Plec loves retconing and asspull twists that make no sense.
4. Misogyny and sexism are the keywords for the plot developments of female characters.
5. CONGRATULATIONS SHOW, YOU JUTS MADE THIS ENTIRE SEASON POINTLESS.
Kitty, stop possessing Matt body. I definetly agree with this review that I feel I do not need to even include anything because you did it all for me. I also like that they did the line of vampires die thing and glad that the Salvatores are giving killing Klaus a rest. I am glad that Caroline quote that why do she have to be the one to distract Klaus all the time.
