The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "Original Sin"

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The Vampire Diaries got even crazier than usual this week, thanks to a controlling/paranoid/jealous/bitter/scored/totally awesome witch named Qetsiyah.

Elsewhere on "Original Sin," Stefan resisted the urge to go all Ripper on innocent humans, Damon was dealt a destiny-based blow and Stefan lost his memory.

Which scenes were most memorable? Is Delena really doomed? And what were Caroline and company up to during the hour? Our Round Table team of Miranda Wicker, Leigh Raines and Steve Marsi have gathered below to delve into all these topics and plenty more. Pull up a virtual chair and join them now!

-------------------------------------------

What was your favorite scene from the episode?
Miranda: This is really tough because I loved all of it. All the new storylines are suddenly really interesting. I'll go with Damon and Elena at the bar just before they go off to find Stefan and Katherine. It was a small but real moment between a couple who've overcome odds they don't even know about yet to get together and showed how good they are together.

Leigh: That was an amazing moment Miranda mentioned. It was this small but passionately heated moment. I gasped when Amara was revealed and it was Nina Dobrev.

Steve: I'm with Leigh on this one. The reveal of the third Nina Dobrev character was awesome and definitely caught me off guard.

Vampire Diaries Round Table

What is your impression of Tessa?
Miranda: Talk about Hell having no fury! Tessa is a slightly cracked badass and I like her. She can stay! Which probably means she'll die soon because that's how these things work in TVD. But not before she drops the veil and Bonnie is back. That's how I see that playing out.

Leigh: Dudeeee. I really didn't care about the Silas storyline before hearing her explanation. The history of the dopplegangers and everything was awesome. Tessa is crazy and I'm digging the amount of power she has.

Steve: Janina Gavankar brings the perfect amount of power, jealousy, and unhinged craziness to the role. Hard not to be Team Kets a little bit after hearing her explanation, and because she's so unpredictable.

Is the universe really on Team Stelena?
Miranda: Ugh. What a crock! I mean, I love a good star-crossed lover story but, ugh. The universe might be Team Stelena but hello, universe, there are TWO doppelgängers running around right now. How does Tessa know that it's not Katherine and Stefan who are supposed to be together? How do we know she hasn't been up there in the afterlife forcing these doppelgängers together and then ripping them apart? So much I don't like about that.

Leigh: So my question is, does Damon have a dopple? Agree that maybe Katherine and Stefan are meant to be. Who knows? Plus, it could also be Tessa's influence. It's hard to ignore the history.

Steve: It certainly seems like that's what they're going for, right? Granted, this is The Vampire Diaries, where the mythology is clearly spitballed on the fly with no earthly idea where the show is going from one season to the next, but it could explain why Elena and Stefan formed such a connection from the very start. Even if Statherine could still be the real couple of destiny and Damon is still hotter. Or so I'm told.

The Travelers: A welcome addition or... WTH?!?
Miranda: I wasn't crazy about then last week but this week? I'm intrigued. They're giving Matt something to do beside wait tables at the Grill.

Leigh: Very intrigued. I wanted to know what it means to be a traveler. Also love ancient greek history.

Steve: A welcome addition. We're better off under the umbrella ... of secrecy and mystery they are covering TVD with at the moment.

Who did you miss more: Bonnie, Jeremy, Caroline, Jesse or Sheriff Forbes?
Miranda: Jeremy. What can I say? Baby Gilbert's grown on me.

Leigh: Caroline and college!

Steve: Visually, Caroline. Plot-wise? Jer. Kid's grown on me this season like he's grown into his tank tops, which are hella small-looking now. I'm saying he's ripped. I've heard he works out.

I love the character of Stefan, so naturally I loved this episode from beginning to end. Very curious to see where this whole amnesia plot element goes. Also big props to the show’s music people! I loved that they used “Hello Lover” by Empires in the scene when Elena wakes up and tells Damon she had a dream about Stefan burning and thenKatherine comes in and says she had the same dream.

Could you all please get at least ONE round table member who likes Stelena? I like reading these because they are fun, but I'm sick of all of the Stelena hate!

1- my favorite scene is damon and elena in the bar and also in the last scene when he tell her ( YOU ARE MY LIFE) it was so romantic which we missed in the last two episodes (delena romance).and i surprised when stefan wakes up and find out that he lost his memory WOW ,he is 164 years old it's a big memory.and I liked when Elena faced kathren , I've been waiting that from the first episode
2- i think that Tessa it's very interesting character ,an angry, ex girlfriend,powerful witch that should be interesting.
3- the universe that could be team stelena but Damon and Elena's love it's much stronger than universe.
4- I don't really want to know what The Travelers means .
5- actually i don't miss any one I can watch Damon , Stefan , Elena and Kathren all the time ,well maybe caroline a little bit.
But I have a question, Did were they speak english in old Greece two thousand years ago????

1.Fav Scene!
- hmmmm let´s say the Damon vs Tessa. It was powered up, interesting and so revealing. It really set the premise for the next 100 episodes.
-And the last scene. Delena scene was powerful, showed they are still strong. And of course Stefan had to wake up when they
2.Tessa?
- WAO! Tremendous. She really nailed the crazy chick. Loved every single scene with her. Really nice. She is so well layered and deep. And I loved the way Silas descriebed her to Nadia. Could see her kill of freeze Silas and FALL in love with Stefan and GO ALL VILLIAN ON SEASON 5
3.Destiny?
-For Human STefan and Elena yes. But doubt it can be transfer to Vampire selfes. Either way it isn´t that much about Elena and Stefan. It´s more about Damon going all GAGA about it.
4. Travlers?
-Unlikely Silas and Tessa were Traveler(Gypsies), skin color. But Nadia is interesting, what is her end Goal. And how will this effect Matt? and the gang?
5. I missed?
-Bonnie. We really needed her to appear. Maybe summoned by Tessa. I mean it´s time to reveal her DEATH!

1.This whole episode was great. Damon and Elena scene on the bar, super cute.
But Qetsyah revealing herself was great. No surprise on Silas true love, I saw that come.
2.I absolutely loved Qetsyah! I hope she's the real badass of this season.
3. The Universe is a bitch. I am team Damon on this Damon x universe shit.
4.WTH are these travelers? Some kind of vampires? I think she's Katherine related, she looks so much like Katherine and the way she looked at her in the hotel...
5. I missed Caroline and some of that college mistery.
I also love how this show make fun of itself. Tessa is much easier to type.

I love how batshit crazy this season is going. Why do we have to choose between Caroline and Jer? Both characters have developed so much in the last few seasons and for the better. And go Matt finally a niche for you!

1. Qetsiyah revealing herself and the awesome blue flames lol! Also The Amara reveal was awesome!
2. She is so badass! Janina totally nailed it! Right amount of crazy! Hope they don't get rid of her so soon!
3. Hello Team Statherine!!!! Always had a gut feeling Katherine and Stefan would find her way back to each other, I may be dead wrong, but she is the one who checked up on him over the years, she certainly has a soft spot for him.
4. We know too little about them at this point, I mean werent Silas and Qetsiyah supposed to be the first witches or something? Or are the Travellers the original progenitors of the witches! I wanna know!
5. This is really a choice between Caroline and Jeremy! I pick Jeremy! I mean we dont even know Jesse yet, the Sheriff shows up sometimes and Bonnie? Do I even need to say anything...
