I thought they had to leave the stake in the vampire? When they wanted to kill Klaus at Tyler's house...Jeremy took it out of Kol before he left.....anyone know for certain?
"The fact that we're not even sure why a vampire of Kol's age even bothered to risk pinning Elena to the wall shows that there's a weakness in the script."
@Marissa Didn't I explain this already? I said that Kol was obviously overconfident and screwing around, that's apparent because Kol was more than capable of killing or restraining them both before they even knew what hit them. He thought he was an all powerful immortal vampire and they were two helpless bugs he could take out whenever he felt like it, so he figured, why not torture them a bit? It's perfectly in character too, considering how sadistic and bloodthirsty Kol is. He had no idea they were planning to kill him and had the white oak stake necessary to do it. His overconfidence and sadistic tendancies got him killed by two people who otherwise wouldn't have stood a chance against him. As I said, that happens all the time in fiction AND real life. Art imitates life after all.
Enough of the boring Stefan !
Klaus and Damon talking was so interesting because Damon was damn right ! And Klaus's weak spot is Caroline...or not lol, since he's bro died...
When will we see her again btw? and Tyler?
I loved the episode and hope that the next one will be as good.
Well, I LOVED THE EPISODE ! Except Kol's death...but as I've been reading, he did die on Silas' behalf, so maybe they'll bring him back...
The way he said he'd chop both arms just to be sure made me laugh soo hard...way too funny.
Bonnie, Bonnie, Bonnie, being a bad girl...doing this to her mama, yup, there aint no coming back.
Klaus, wow, the way the actor played it, damn, he deserves an award ! It was soo scary yet I couldn't look away... So he can dagger them whenever he wants, but no no don't kill them ! Okay...
I felt so sad for Rebekkah. That girl needs some happiness ! She can NEVER go to a dance, when that's all she wants ! I want her to be human, then maybe all this rage will go away...
Elena seemed so happily naive lol, it was funny. hey, she got what she wanted, ppl are dead, the mark is complete, let's go find the cure ! Except wait, Bekkie hasn't been daggered ! Stef slept with her, Damon REALLY was waiting to say this one. Stef as a douche, AWESOME ! Enough of the bo
i think TVD's writers are becoming lazier....relying more and more on convenience. Huge question is ...Jeremy's hunter's mark. I thought it was said earlier that the mark can only be seen by ANOTHER potential hunter? How is it everyone can see it now?
"Here, if Elena and Jeremy didn't kill Kol, Kol would have killed Elena and chopped Jeremy's arms off, or compelled somebody else to kill Jeremy."
@Immortalfieza, If the quoted statement above is true, then why didn't Kol kill Elena when he had the chance instead of staking her in a place where she would clearly recover? I'm sorry but your explanations are an indication of why I think this show needs better writers. The fact that we're not even sure why a vampire of Kol's age even bothered to risk pinning Elena to the wall shows that there's a weakness in the script. Kol's character had potential but it also was poorly written. He was enormously and unbelievably careless for a guy who was so passionate against Silas being raised. Do I find the show entertaining? Yes. Do I think it's well written? No.
Oh yeah, one more thing. I sincerely hope that Bonnie (forcibly) telling her parents to back off and using the expression magic against them is just a sign that she's growing up, becoming independant, that she's tired of them and those spirit dicks ordering her around, and that whole "It doesn't matter what you use it for! Black magic and expression are evil!" thing is just a load of bulls#$@ so we don't have to deal with one of those corny "Evil Bonnie" storylines like Buffy's Willow's magic addiction and Dark Willow storylines. The last thing I want to see is Bonnie losing her newfound power and independance because of a "oh woe is me I got drunk with power and nearly destroyed the world and I'm SORRY! Boo Hoo!" That inevitably follows those kinds of storylines.
6/ Seriously whenever these two (Damon and Elena) get close to each other they look like merging into one body and their hug (after parting for one day only) was so so so telling and beautiful. And Damon's punching Stefan made me so happy 'cause Stefan need to learn to face the consequences of his actions and stop blaming everything to the sire bond and lying to himself saying that Damon is taking advantage of it .
using the word "secrete" as a definition of how special relationship Damon and Elena share and that the sire bond is inadequate to influence Elena's capability of forgiveness so in another words he sees something there that the sire bond can’t affect and can’t create which is the love, trust and friendship they share but sure he knows nothing about these terms. 2nd he brought up all of Damon's fears and even that I loved Damon's react toward that deep down he has this insecurity and that fear that Elena's feeling aren't real and that she may comeback to Stefan the moment she return human again and I hope that these insecurity vanish by the end of this season. And the most lovely part was Damon not trying to find Jeremy and kill him even that Klaus' compulsion has no affect on him 'cause of the vervain in the water. Damon:"I'll stay hear until you return... OR NOT." Love you Damon Salvatore.
5/ I loved Damon/Klaus scenes. They had a wonderful conversation, it was funny, frustrating and interesting and sure it gave us this brilliant quote : « If you're gonna be bad, be bad with purpose. » . I didn't care about Klaus' point of view concerning Damon/Elena's future as a couple and how he (Damon) couldn't fight the compulsion unlike Stefan 'cause we and Damon knows that's wrong and he (Klaus)'s someone who knows absolutely nothing about love but sure he knows about the sire bond and hearing him saying that the sire bond isn't all that it is about Damon and Elena's relationship was a big deal.1st I loved that when Klaus was trying to figure out a way to make Caroline forgive him for his latest murder (which is something Damon see through) he was trying to find the solution through Damon and Elena's relation ship (the one that has no farytail ending from his perspective) and not through Stefan and Elena's (the only love that he can see)
3/ Loved powerful Bonnie who dosen't let anyone tells her what to do anymore even that I'm afraid about the consequences of the expression practice.
4/ I really enjoyed watching Elena fulfilling her smart plan (it worked for the 1st time), it was great to see her fighting Kol along with Jeremy as one family and defeating him without anyone else's help. I knew that Kol is going to die but watching him getting burned was scary and seeing Klaus' look at them was scarier and tbh Klaus being so furious and trapped in Elena's leaving room was delightful.
5/ I loved Damon/Klaus scenes. They had a wonderful conversation, it was funny, frustrating and interesting and sure it gave us this brilliant quote : « If you're gonna be bad, be bad with purpose. » .
Great and awesome episode. I really loved it.
1/ I loved Rebekah and Stefan, he's more alive around her (he's fun, he dance) which is good to see and I really got teary eyes for her when she realised Stefan's real intention from asking her as his date and when she revealed her want to be human, having kids and a man to love her but I can’t trust her fully specially after Elena killing her brother. And loved Stefan saying that he won't let the people that he loves get hurt including Damon, it's not something that I didn't know but hearing it felt good.
2/ It was funny watching Elena complaining about Jeremy and Matt playing videogames and them saying that they're training (like a mother and her two kids , that was hilarious).
@daniel I would bet money that Shane's either lying, misinformed, or found that out from a bunch of texts that are trying to bulls%$t people into raising Silas when it comes to that "everybody that dies in Sila's name gets resurrected" plot point.
2. "A NEWBIE VAMPIRE AND VAMPIRE HUNTER SHOULDN'T BE ABLE TO KILL A 1,000 YEAR OLD ORIGINAL!!! RAAAAAAGGGHHHH!!! STUPID LAZY WRITERS!!!"
And just why not? They had the stake, Kol was obviously overconfident and was screwing around the entire time, probably out of sadism and a belief that he was invincible. Thus, he wasn't careful enough and missed staking Elena when he had the chance (or pinned her to the wall intentionally, wanting to go back and torture her at bit later, it's unclear which) and then he was caught completely by surprise, sprayed with vervain-laced water and then staked. This time what's forgotten is the fact that it doesn't matter who you are, how old you are, or how powerful you are, both in real life and fiction, if you're in a fight and get caught by surprise and/or your opponent gets lucky, you can and probably will get dead, millenia old vampires are no exception.
Remember Silas will bring back everyone who died on his behalf. I guess that includes kol, unless the writers r going to mess with us again
The haters here seem to conveniently forgetting many things so they can justify their hatred.
1. "ELENA IS SUPPOSED TO NEVER WANT TO KILL INNOCENTS EVER! KILLING KOL KILLED LOTS OF INNOCENTS! SO WRITERS ARE FULL OF IT!!!
Oh, and I suppose you forget the kind of situation these people happen to be in at the time? When Elena refused to allow innocent deaths in the past, there were ways to avoid it, at least as far as she knew. Here, if Elena and Jeremy didn't kill Kol, Kol would have killed Elena and chopped Jeremy's arms off, or compelled somebody else to kill Jeremy. Kol was going to stop at nothing to prevent Sila's return. That, and the fact that Klaus would have continued turning innocent people left and right and leading them to Jeremy for him to slaughter to complete the mark. In short, there was no magical third no innocents die option available this time.
I hated this episode, it was so aweful. The only good part was when Elena and Jeremy killed Kol. I don't see how Stefan and Rebekah have anything in common and their scenes were so forced and fake and cheesy, I couldn't believe the writers did that. And now, everyone is working together to find the cure? That is soooo lame.
Not looking forward to the next episode at all where they all seemed to be in search for the cure. This show has lost it for me completely.
Well the Originals spin off is gonna be set in the past
How do you know that? They've already cast HAYLEY for it and there never ever was a sign that she and Klaus already knew each other!
At this point, I'm really frustrated with the show's progress. I didn't even like Kol as a character, but had to admit there was A LOT of potential. Killing him off so easily was lame and unworthy.
Don't you all remember when Elena threw a vervain grenade at Elijah? How effin' fast he healed? Why didn't Kol? The writers don't seem to remember their own rules (Originals being the most powerful beings on earth, for example, but can be taken out with vervainwater and/or a teenage witch).
Well the Originals spin off is gonna be set in the past, so it doesn't really matter if he's dead now ! Which I'm sad about but hey, the show must go on !!!
Why the hell did they kill off Kol when there is an Originals spin-off coming??!! Ridiculous! Bring Kol back! And it really doesn't make much sense anymore- if a newbie vamp and a lame hunter can kill and Original then the whole logic of the show crumbles really. And the fact that Bonnie can overpower Klaus so easily is lame- Klaus is supposed to be super powerful, the ultimate villain, and yet a teen witch can do what she wants with him. sucks. And it seems like the way the show is going Klaus is going to be next or even worse, they are going to find the cure and use it, and everyone will be human again- lame!
Can't wait for the spin-off - I hope it will make more sense and be more for grownups then for teens.Like Daniel Giles said : sort of like the vampire sopranos. That will be cool!
I also do hope that they find the cure and Elena takes it. I do not see this happening but this is what I'm hoping for. There are too many vampires at this point and they need a couple more humans.
Ummm I'm POSITIVE there are commenters that CAN do a better job than that humpty dumpty in charge of the show! Plec is extremely biased and it's standing out so much that things are no longer beginning to make any sense. Her mind is so one-tracked on Elena (whom she's projecting herself on) making her a mary-sue, and the triangle with Stefan and Damon.
You call some posters teenage girls, the truth is Plec is the teenage girl whose obsession with this triangle and her sexual fetish with the two male leads is driving this show to moot. Case in point:
4 SEASONS IN AND EVERYTHING IS STILL ABOUT SAVING/HELPING ELENA!
Kol didn't stab Elena in the heart because he wasn't going to kill her or Jeremy. He was going to stop the curse - the reason why he was going to cut off Jeremy's arms. If he wanted to kill Elena and Jeremy, he would have stabbed Elena in the heart without missing and stabbed Jeremy too but remember he didn't want to get the hunter's curse? And killing the main character, Elena, would result in a bad show. You guys can hate Elena all you want, but she made this show the way it is. I hope Elena's jealousy comes out more and makes her more vicious, I can relate, being a girl and being jealous. It's like world war 3 when a girl's jealous.
@spy101 klaus said in season 3 that the salvatores and everyone else like elena, caroline, bonnies mom, etc was all descended from klaus. so thats why they havent killed klaus yet.
everyone needs to know that even though kol is 1000 year old original, the water that jeremy gilbert sprayed had vervain in the system and vervain is one of the main things that really hurt a vampire whether they are an original or a regular. so its not ridiculous to think that elena and jeremy couldnt have done it. anyone else notice how sad it is that every time rebekah is about to be stabbed by the dagger because shes in the way it always happens when theres a dance? and she never got to go to any of these high school dances? it makes me sad that she never gets it her way but thats what makes her character so lovable despite the cruel things she does. why cant shane get compelled? anyone know? and between his private sessions with bonnie, does shane compel bonnie?
