The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "Catch Me If You Can"

at . Comments

Kol caused problems. Bonnie set the police station on fire. And Stefan and Rebekah were red hot in their own, very different way.

Yes, The Vampire Diaries aired "Catch Me If You Can" last night and now our Round Table team of Matt Richenthal, Leigh Raines, Miranda Wicker and Steve Marsi are here to breakdown all the action, in and out of the bedroom.

Pull up a virtual chair and chime in now!


What was your favorite scene or quote from the episode?
Matt: Stefan revisiting his Ripper days, minus the killing and the pillaging and all. This guy deserves some fun and some unfeeling, no-positions-barred sex with Rebekah. Paul Wesley absolutely killed it as this version of Stefan.

Leigh: Stefan to Elena: "You don't know what I look like when I'm not in love with you." BUUUUUURN!!!

Miranda: The end! Elena had an actual bad ass idea. If she and Jeremy can pull it off, that is. Killing Kol to complete the mark and get the map? Genius.

Steve: A bitter, slightly vengeful Stefan nonchalantly (maybe even a little cheerfully) explaining to Damon that he bled him out and that he'll be cooling his heels in the dungeon until further notice. Cheers, brother!

More ridiculous: Bonnie interrogating Shane; Damon warning Jeremy to run while compelled;  or, again, Matt's jacket?
Matt: Give Matt a break! The guy has already earned the Least Valuable Player award from Damon. Can we leave his fashion sense alone? I've gotta go with Bonnie somehow being permitted into the interrogation room. That storyline made the sire bond seem sensical.

Leigh: Well, Matt didn't have any other clothes up at the cabin so he gets a pass... Damon is in love with Elena so he probably did it for her... I guess it would have to go with Bonnie getting some balls lately. Who knew?

Miranda: Oh, Matt. That jacket. Definitely Matt and the jacket.

Steve: Damon telling Jeremy to run while being compelled to murder him. Doesn't compulsion entail blindly doing whatever you're told? Since when can the compelled realize what's going on?

Hotter sex scene: Delena or Strebekah?
Matt: Gonna go with Strebekah because 1. it involved Claire Holt; 2. I didn't see it coming; 3. It wasn't interspersed with Caroline and Stefan having their own conversation.

Leigh: Delena obvs. Strebekah didn't even get a soundtrack. But good for Stefan for getting some and moving on.

Miranda: I really like that Stefan's getting some action, even if it is with Rebekah. But their sex is still way less hot than Delena sex.

Steve: Strebekah. No emotions, strings attached or sire bond nonsense required, just pure insanity and raging libidos. Maybe not the secret to a lasting relationship ... but fun to watch on TV.

Who is behind the mystery team?
Matt: Let's just say she looks VERY similar to another character on the show.

Leigh: Klaus. Isn't Klaus behind everything? Or are the writers switching it up for a change and maybe Shane is behind the mystery team? But can Shane compel? My bets are still on Klaus.

Miranda: Mayor Hopkins. While masquerading as a traveling salesmen, he was really discovering the secret to destroying Silas. He sent Sheriff Forbes and then sent the mystery man because he knew Shane would have to cancel his office hours.

Steve: Who cares, I'm just excited that the race for the cure got even more complicated!

Where were Caroline and Tyler this week?
Matt: Spreading Tyler's mother's ashes in the Pacific Ocean. It's what she always wanted.

Leigh: I'd like to think that Caroline and Tyler were having make up sex. Right? Let one of these couples be happy for a week!

Miranda: Attending classes at Mystic Falls High School like the students they're all supposed to be.

Steve: Agree with Miranda. Those AP chemistry midterms can be a bitch.


1. Every scene involving Kol! Esp what he says as Bx is about to dagger him... Sex on a stick! Nuff said!
2. Damon warning Jeremy.. I mean wth
3. Delena, speaking objectively
4. The people Kol mentioned trying to raise Silas, like his acolytes or worshippers imo
5. Miranda's answer =D


@ V- I agree with everything you said. Stefan was hands down the best thing in this episode for me. Him telling Elena off was probably one of my favorite scenes of all time. @Renee- I don't mind him being with Rebekah either right now because I'm enjoying this side of Stefan. Actually both Rebekah & Katherine bring out the reckless & sarcastic flirty side of Stefan which I'm loving. But if I had it my way I would love to see him & Katherine have a real chance at a relationship. I think he definitely has unresolved feelings for her just like Elena apparently had for Damon.


1/ Damon scenes for sure.
2/ Bonnie interrogating Shane. I believe in Damon's situation he used a loophole in Kol's compulsion so he can warn Jeremy and tried to fight it by telling him to kill him so he wouldn't have to kill him instead.
3/ 100% Delena.
4/ There's two options either Elijah or katherine .
5/ Matt's answer.


1. Stefan's scenes at the end with Damon and Elena. Especially "You don't know what I look like when I'm not in love with you.". And did you catch Elena's face? 2. Bonnie. Though this is Mystic Falls. To paraphrase the good sheriff, it isn't the most ridiculous thing that's happened there. 3. Strebekah because Rebekah is a more interesting character now than Elena (who has become my least fav character) but also because it was much more unexpected. 4. Do y'all notice how much mind control is being used. Originals and compulsion. Sire bond. And whatever freaky hold Shane has on Bonnie (cuz he used the exact same phrases and intonation to calm her both times, don't tell me he's not got a handle on her). Katherine loves compulsion, and she's terrified of Klaus. I'm betting on her unless it's some unknown 3rd party working with a different hunter. 5. I miss Caroline! Bring her back.


1. Any and everything involving Stefan. This is the Stefan I was waiting for. I hated him for 2 seasons, then loved him half of the 3rd, then hated him again, and now he's back.
2. Bonnie. Anything having to do with Bonnie is wrong, kill her off already!!
3. DELENA. Please, like you needed to ask even. But I'm way happy this hook up happend, I was rooting for it. Shame Elena had shifty eyes when talking to Stefan this episode, she's already on the track back to him. Amazing Stefan will soon be gone.
4. I think it has something to do with the back door pilot.. It's not Klaus, but it's about Klaus.
5. I don't know. And the fact that I dont care that there was no Caroline this week only comes to show how annoying she got.


Stefan/Rebecca is the fiercest couple now imo. If they become a couple...whatever they become, I feel a sexual tension between them and i think its time Stefan let go of the 'hopeless romantic' attitude and have some fun. Rebecca is the girl for her. So rooting them.


Damon knows his feelings and his reactions to situations. If out of the blue all he wants is to kill Jeremy, the only logical explanation is that he was compelled. No fail there at all, just a logic chain of events.


1. "You don't know what I look like when I am not in love with you" Finally! 2. Damon -because Kol specified in his compulsion that Damon would NOT remember anything about having this conversation with KOL - so logic fail! 3. Stebekah because it did not involve bleeding nails... 4. Its either Katherine or Elijah. I want it to be Elijah! 5. Exactly!


It's Stebekah for fucks sake, these round tables are never amusing


1.) Stefan great line..."I know you were daggered for a while, but knocking is still a a huge damon fan and his funny quotes, this time Stefan killed me with this quote.. 2.) I think the whole compulsion thing is stupid and ridiculous ..and now they don't have any vervaine..sorry, how lame is that..and for the first time there is no bonnie using a stupid spell or somebody around Ian' good in gardening..tstst 3.)the delena scene could have been so perfect, but the stupid talk between the ex boyfriend and the baddest friend in the whole world destroyed it..the strebekkah scene was not really one of these two..the hottest scene still was between damon and Katherine first ep season two. 4.) Alaric and just joking , but I think there will be a solution as ridiculous like that..
5.) Caroline and Tyler are in a boot camp where they help Caroline to be a friend without tellin all the secrets a friend begged her not to tell..
