I enjoyed the episode, but it wasn't as good as s2 and s3's premieres.
Agree with fortyseven. The episode felt a little too rushed, it felt like my brain was constantly catching up with the episode. That being said, this episode had 10x more intensity and excitement than a handful of s3 episodes. Unlike a lot of the others here, I actually enjoyed Bonnie's(along with Rebekah's) parts the most.
Con'd Also to answer your questions, the council raided the Salvatore house, it makes sense that they would find their stash, considering they were at Elena's and not their own home.. as far as them breaking out of their cells, it was Elena, she was still "human" when the vervain (is that how you spell it) was being blown in the barn, it didn't affect her yet.. so she would have all her strength as soon as she fed. I think the show "glossed" over those details because it is pretty self explainatory if you take a minute to think about it. The pastor was off his rocker, and I think he blew up the house, and those who the the secret in it, as a way of being able to keep all the characters in mystic falls.. as of right now, all the bad council members who know the secret are dead.. so no more hiding .. at least for now
I did enjoy this episode, I found a few faults, but not neccessarily the same ones as in the review or other comments. I did not find it boring..It was a season opener, and it opened the way it should have, the first critical hours of Elena's transformation, as well as the aftermath of Alaric's outing to the council. We see the sheriff,dr. fell, and the mayor all called out. We see the vamps rounded up, and we see bonnie attempting to stop Elena's transformation. Also, I'm very glad the whole Tyler/klaus situation was solved early on, i hate when they drag on storylines that shouldn't be dragged out. my complaints, and it is really only one, is Elena.. you don't want to be a vamp but your okay with being dead.. really.. so dumb, either way you don't get to grow up so what difference does it make, at least in one reality you get to be with your brother, and the man you love.
As a wrap-up of the finale and set-up for season 4, so there were too many underdeveloped and rushed plots.
this episode was kinda boring !
stephan and elena's scenes were boring !
the bonnie magic thing is repeated and it seems as if it's a constant scene in every episode !,they seriously should stop using bonnie as a plot device !
what i liked was elena transitioning ,the light ,the noises ,the almost dying !,it was weel acted !
also tyler as klaus was actually not as bad as i imagined !
Honestly I could give this episode a B minus and still consider it a little too generous. Compare it to last year's premier: It has just lost that spark that made it the only CW show I could admit to watching.
I was always partial to the idea of Stefan and Elena but tonight just didn't do it for me.
The plot holes were literally gaping tonight. Were we not led to believe Gramns had finally found peace in last year's episode that shan't be named?
I still have hope for the coming season but overall a poor start.
Okay, I've watched TVD ever since episode 1. I had a thing for Stefan at first, because he was the character that you were suppose to root for. But as the season progressed, it was OBVIOUS that Elena & Damon had and still has more chemistry than Elena & Stefan will ever have. And what ticks me off is that the writers & producers & every freaking person knows this. They know that most of the fans watching the show are Delena fans, & they use that to lure us & keep us watching. The promos make it seem like Elena & Damon are going to hit it off (FINAL-FREAKING-LY), & then when you watch the episodes, they're just like "Oops, sorry, it's still Stefan & Elena". Seriously. Seriously?? Just stop. Stop it. Stop making it seem like they're going to get together just to lure viewers. If you guys are going to stick with Stefan & Elena, then just take a freaking rest off of the stupid love triangle that has been dragging for forever now. (Literally dragging
I loved it. Interesting that so many people are dissapointed in the premeire. I am a true fan and continue to love this show and can not wait til next week. Go Stelena!
The episode was ok but I think the season will get much better can't wait for next weeks episode I hope it's a lot better.
my opinion is that it is like a guy who did something wrong but forgivable and understandable but who expects everything to be the same...there was excellent set up for this season but last season dragged so much and was all over the place. Like I followed the Bonnie stuff well enough and appreciate that there are real consequences to magic for the whole balance of nature thing. Like I am still not sure what real consequence Bonnie had to pay for Jeremy last season. I know the dead retturned but seriously...it is usually life for a life and black magic is paid in blood. so i was not as moved as i could have been.
I agree that the episode was a let down with the predictability and plot holes. It really pissed me off that everyone keeps dying/almost dying to "protect" Elena, Damon and Stefan were jackasses to Matt because he lived! Elena and the Salvatore's need to get over themselves while the other characters need to stop risking their lives for Elena. Sometimes I wish the show would ditch the triangle of doom and focus on the other characters that have so much potential but never get the chance to shine.
I was thinking that maybe Damon was somehow able to compel the pastor into committing the mass suicide? It seemed really uncharacteristic otherwise.
This episode was BORING. don't care that Elena is a vampire. Cute scene between her and Stefan but seriously she's excited to be a vampire just so she can spend the rest of her life with him? God these shows piss me off with the dumbass girls they make. And Matt should love every day he lives now? Really Stefan? YOU were the one who just HAD to come back to Mystic Falls to meet Elena and then stay and fuck up her life along with your crazy out of control brother Damon. Ugh this show....
@Matt Richenthal: Thanks for keeping my hopes up! I will tune in :)
Terrible directing it was like a bad Noir film. I too hope the triangle is dead for this season. The witch has the answer I guess the wizard wasn't available. No intrigue or suspense I was really bored.
@~Katrina: I've seen next week's episode and IT IS. One of top episodes in TVD history. Stay tuned!
i was dissapointed too. hopefully next week is better
BORING... I was already ticked when they decided to turn Elena into a vampire. I think that ruins some of the appeal of the show, but decide to stick with the show anyway. But after tonight's show, I don't know. VD has always been a great show but I think they are going down the wrong path now and tonight's episode proved that. It was so boring I could hardly pay attention. Very disappointing :'(
Why does Matt need to earn the right to alive? He would have been fine if two assholes never showed up in his life. Maybe he should just burn your damn house down with their dumb asses in side.
I loved Delena fight about what she remembered and what he would have done, and I loved when Stefan told Matt to deserve to live every day. And my heart broke for Rebekah... I feel so sorry for her after this episode...
BUT Bonnie and the spells and the ghosts and Grams...that storyline is so over and very annoying for me. So they really need to cut it waaay down.
I also thought Michael was great as Klaus but Joseph is still one of the best. Then I like seeing cocky Damon back. I did not predict Pastor will commit a suicide mission. Looks like Rebekah is going to join Elena and Co soon. I am also glad that Bonnie is taking back control of her life and wonder where she will go from here since she cannot depend on the spirits anymore.
