cont'd Delena/Stelena triangle, still think Delena's this season's endgame, actually enjoyed the few seconds of Meredth as well. Anyway there was alot to love, who knew Julie Plec could actually get it right sometimes :)
Quick question, I had a flashback during ths episode to the episode where Jeremy told Bonnie about seeing Anna. Before he did, Anna appeared and said "The Darkness...It's here" and Bonnie's Grimoire caught on fire. Do you think that "Darkness" has anything to do with this Darkness in Alaric? I'm still hoping it would be some sort of entity/phantom, maybe like the First in Buffy, that would would act as a big bad in season 4( A truly evil villian).
ok the whole episode for me was the damon and alric scene in the tomb and caroline scenes ,other than that stephan and elena equal boring ,bonnie and that jamie guy also boring !,i normally like klaus but i didn't get what he was doing this episode ! he seemed irrelevent .
elena is seriously getting on my nerves ! her reaction never suits the situation ,people die around her ,her family and friends ,and it's just a few tears then a hug for stephan and next day is just let's get over it !,that's not a real character !,, a real person would be devastated!!
Loved this episode!!!! Although I hoped there'd be a little more action, it was amazing none the less and probably one of the best this season. I actually didn't cry that much...The whole time during those last scenes I was on the verge of tears but it only really started slipping during Alaric and Damon's last drink together, maybe because I knew his death wouldn't stick. I also like the fact that Esther's so strong, I've always been on team witched. I love everything about this ep, except two things: Normally I don't agree with Bored Now, but Klaus is just pathetic and I pray he dies or is at least put to sleep at the end of this season. He just irritated me throughout and I still can't stomach the fact that he'll have to work with the Salvatores to stop Evilaric. They did he's whole feelings thing completely wrong, he's lost all his spunk. Secondly, Bonnie and Jamie(not because I'm a Beremy fan)do not fit together AT ALL...It's just very weird. Loved Caroline and Tyler, loved Delena
Completely disagree with all the comments. This episode wad AMAZING!! I think whey storyline was mentioned. Great episode and I really hope Elena picks stefan. Despite his blood lust his live an support is ALWAYSthete. Stelena forever!!!
Also can I just say again on how I HATE the idea of afterlife being confirmed as real in this show and how it pretty much makes already worthless concept of DYING even more worthless?
Also, IMO Nina looks like she is being forced to hug her teenage brother everytime she has a romantic scene with Paul. Maybe they should put Paul with his real wife. Maybe then watching a romantic scene with him won't be like watching paint dry. Sorry but Nina Ian chemistry makes Nina Paul chemistry look silly!
Stelena scenes were weird and "twilight-like" complete with the leftover Christmas lights in the background while they were hugging.
THIS SO MUCH.
DE and SE pairings are pretty much made into Twilight-lite now and whole ep was a 5 minute long Alaric plot stretched out by needless filler that served no real purpose.
There's a lot to say about this episode, but one of the minor things that may have been easy to miss: Remember when the dead vampires (Vicki, Anna, Pearl, Lexi, the tomb vampires, etc.) all appeared in Mystic Falls? We were all upset that Jenna didn't show up. And here's why: Jenna was the only vampire who didn't appear when all the ghosts showed up because she isn't on the "Other Side." She knows peace because she remained pure in spite of being turned into a vampire. It also means that, unlike Rose -- who is on the "Other Side" but is fully enjoying her freedom -- Jenna will probably never appear as a ghost.
Wow, I guess I saw a different episode from everyone else, cause I thought it sucked! Stelena scenes were weird and "twilight-like" complete with the leftover Christmas lights in the background while they were hugging. Darklaric and Esther were a good team, for about 20 seconds, then everything shifts gears and it's back to the twilight prom for another weird hug between "Edward" and Elena. This show wants to be grown up with all the teenage sex but then we gave to suffer through the sappy stelena scenes that have about as much heat as an ice cream cone.
The MOJO is back! Fabulous episode, I love the cast and Matt Davis is incredible; sexy, macho, heartbreaking. So much to take in and every story element balanced. Damon may be hot but Stefan is soulful, he's a Sunday kind of love. And did I mention Matt and Jeremy at the bar drinking and grieving without shame? I'm still tingling.
This episode was...boring. It had too much Bonnie in it. Alaric's goodbye with the whole cast was beautiful. Alaric and Damon's goodbye? Beautiful. Everything else was pretty standard. It was awesome how Stefan and Elena took the opportunity to make Alaric's apparent death about them. Stefan: "This is the gym floor where I bit you because Klaus compelled me, and now we're feeling so many emotions on it." Okay, that was paraphrased, but seriously, they didn't miss a beat to reflect on themselves.
- Damon's reduced to being one-liner machine who angsts over Elena and cries, blah blah blahdee blah. The character has not been interesting since the end of Season One.
- Sort-of-Pointless Klaus scenes in the episode. Really what was his purpose here? Try to be dangerous? Sorry, the ponny-paintings and tears are etched into our memories, Klaus.
- Even more pointless Matt and Jeremy plotlines that did nothing.
- Spells-out-of-nowhere and plot-contrivances of the worst writing quality possible to get stuff to happen AND THEN bonnie was possessed without any foreshadowing or reason. And then alaric was an original. And then stake got infinite lives!...
Seriously. What happened to you, show?
- This episode did NOTHING for other characters.
- Elena is still annoying and did not even develop even for a second. But hey progress! She cried for Alaric more than for Jenna. A whole 4 seconds of tears! What a great protagonist....But of course any means necessary to save the holy caring awesome Elena who has no flaws and cares for everyone.
- Bonnie's romance is horribly forced and Bonnie herself continues being a plot device....this time literally lol.
- Steffie is back to his self-hating Edward persona. Not that he ever left. Except now there's no "i have a mysterious past and darker side" hook that he had for first season, that made us all more forgiving on his wimpy antics, expecting some huge redemption plot or some guilt...that never happened.
Take 5 minutes of Alaric-into-original-out-of-nowhere aspull plot, mix in 10 minutes of twilight edward/bella romance and 30 minutes of pure filler and you have this episode.
all I can say about this episode: trainwreck.
Seriously, plec, what was supposed to be SAAAAD in this?
the episode spent time doing NOTHING. Its a 5 minute plot of Alaric being asspullled into Original being stretched into 45 minutes.
One contrivance after another, one predictable "twist" after the other, this episode did nothing good for the show, but make already contrived Alaric-psycho plot into more bigger trainwreck.
At last! The Mojo is back. Cast superb, story compelling and Matt Davis too fabulous, I finally feel that, "my oh my" excitement that I felt in seasons one and two.
What can I say? The MOJO is back! The cast was superb, the story compelling and finally a beautiful moment between Stefan and Elena. Julie and Kevin ROCK!
I'm sorry but this season finale will be my last TVD episode ever! I'm sick of Damon always being the bad guy in everyone eyes and Stefan the ultimate hero. As a Damon fan I feel hurt and betrayed because for once I thought things were going to look up for him but from the looks of it the "EPIC" love story is coming back and I for one cannot handle to watch another go around of Stefan and Elena. So two more episodes and I'M OUT!
OF COURSE CAROLINE IS TEAM STELENA!!! Stefan helped her in her transition phase when becoming a vampire. Damon changed her, and used he when she was human as a sex toy and a blood bag. GOOD CAROLINE, WAY TO BE SMART!!!!
Spoilers... know we know who this powerful original vampire vampire slayer was that was talked about so long ago...
LOVED THIS EPISODE!!!
I was crying one minute then swooning the next. Alaric is such an amazing character and the scene with him, Jeremy, and Elena had me balling, then the scene with everyone saying a good buy, and finally the Damon/Alaric scene. They have an amazing friendship and I Love it!!
I was smiling and swooning because of STELENA!!!!!!!!!!! LOVE IT!!! I dont see stefan as a safe choice but rather the RIGHT choice!! He will always be there for her thick and thin, and it is beautiful to see that! I am sure a lot will change over the next 2 episodes but my undying love for STELENA will never wavier!!! :)))))
I'm hopelessly Team Delena, even though she doesn't deserve him, so take this with a grain of salt:
I actually thought the "you have me" scene felt contrived and forced. She's crying because she has lost every parent figure she has ever had, and he has the nerve to claim to be able to fill that void? Boyfriend/ex-boyfriend/boy-anything will never be able to replace parents. In this case, he seems to have the opposite effect. He is incapable of telling her no, so she has become an increasingly selfish, spoiled brat. Girlfriend desperately needs a REAL parent figure, not a grad student or a drunk (as much as I love Alaric). Heck, the closest thing she has now is Caroline, the actual moral compass of the show.
I loved this episode and I think it was deffinetly one of the best episodes and probably the best episode of the series so far. I can't wait till the next episode it looks amazing.
The bad guy always wins the heart. I am team STELENA. Always have been and ALWAYS will be! Tell me Damon would have never said those words to her that way. He would have made some joke about it.
"I am all alone."
"No you're not. You have me."
OMG LOVED IT!
Yeah, I'll go with torn too. The ending was contrived. Damon's seen Bonnie possessed before and Damon should have closed the tomb doors. Bonnie loses out on character building again! Esther should have made the spell for the Originals be temporary in the first place! I don't get why Caroline wants Elena to be with Stefan. Tyler and Caroline are cute but Tyler went missing for a third of seasons 2 and 3. Season 4 too?
