@borednow...I don't get why you watch the show at all..honestly, you seem to hate it and slaughter it in every comment on TV Fanatic.

I do agree with you about "Supernatural" though...one of my favorite shows sadly jumped the shark two seasons ago :-(

I also agree that Klaus sired Rose..maybe. It would make the most sense, as, who really wants to see Joseph Morgan go? Plus, it would prevent them from killing off Tyler...so two birds and all...

And now If I am right(and I am sure I am) - Rose will be made to have been sired by Klaus and they all will just accept Klaus into Mystic Falls, making this whole entire season entirely and utterly pointless and Klaus will be put into similar role as Katherine and Damon before that, have been put - pointless background existence, while show hypes up its new villains, which, going by the template i posted below, implies the possessing thingies being the next villains.

To add to that, there's another tendency in this season of resetting the status quo in every episode.

Everyone should ask themselves - what purpose did Elena's fake death serve? What purpose "bad steffie" serve? Gloria? Necklace hunt? coffin hunt? coffin opening? Mikael? white oak tree? Originals? Oak stakes?

no purpose. Because at the end of every one of those plot lines, it was all reset, making that plotline NOT MATTER.

its the same problem as with latest two seasons of supernatural - the show keeps throwing ideas at you and then forgetting them, hoping to fill up the whole season with that. There's no sensible progression.

I don't think they are recycling storylines
Damon/Katherine/Klaus enters the show and appears threatening and is searching for necklace/moonstone/necklace to perform an important ritual. along the way Damon/Katherine/Klaus joins the main cast and stops being villain. That eventually leads to introduction of Anna-Group/JonahandElijah/GloriaSteffieKlaus who eventually lead to introduction of Pearl'sGroup/Werewolves/Originals. This latest group then eventually gets killed off, leading to the introduction of next-season villain, usually with a flashback episode, who appears in finale just as some huge ritual is performed.

How many TVD season fit into that? All of them so far.

I don't think they are recycling storylines and I am quite glad that I was finally reminded WHY we need to kill at least Klaus: he ruined Stefan's life, he tried to kill Elena, he is using Elena as a "human blood bag", he is creating extremely dangerous hybrids and, above all, he'll kill anyone to look out for #1. I couldn't remember how evil he was for a while. Though, I still don't see why Elijan and Kol have to go... Bex and Kol might be a problem, though, as they might avenge the death of their brother. Or, maybe not...after Klaus so clearly demonstrated his lack of allegiance to Bex in last night's episode.
No matter, because they can't kill Klaus without killing Tyler, and they can't kill any other OV until they talk to Rose.
Looking forward to next week's episode...though, I didn't know Jeremy could still see ghosts!

I also loved seeing Stefan acknowledge OUT LOUD to Elena that he still loves her, that he knows she loves him....and that he sees her relationship with Damon...and that it was HIS fault for pushing her away. I have to admit, I was fully on-board the Delena train, but that scene reminded me why I loved Stefan and Elena so very much in Season 1. This episode has left my shipping desires very, very torn...and that makes me excited to watch more..
I do agree with you on the Bonnie front. So easily made to do spells..liability! And, I sure with the writers WOULD stop cheating and doing some spell to change the storyline or drive the plot. It's like..."Oh no, what shall we do?!" Then, BAM! Bonnie comes win with some spell she found in her grimoire and problem solved. Too easy! I like Bonnie, but either give her depth or get rid of her, seriously.

I was thrilled with this episode for a few reasons: the first being that Julie Plec & Co finally wrote something that felt like it made absolute logical sense (I've been questioning her logic and mythos recently)...that all the vampires would die if the Originals die..that the spell that made them vampires goes for ALL vampires.

Matt Richenthal...it's odd, I usually agree with your reviews..in fact, you and Wet Paint are the only TVD reviews I agree to read. But I think you missed the mark with your dislike of this episode. For me, it was one of those episodes that lingers the next day...one that I found myself rewinding over and over to watch the pain in Stefan's face, hear the snarky comments, relive the shock of the realization that killing the OVs would eliminate the entire vampire (as Elena put it) species.

@slymong: Not sure what you mean by separating out Bonnie from the writing. When I single out Bonnie, I'm really just referring to how she's written, considering, you know, she's not a real person.
As you rightly point out, though, the difference in her being manipulated versus other characters being manipulated, is that she can just cast a spell that changes the entire storyline. It's a cheat the writers can just always go to.
