The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "While You Were Sleeping"

at .  Updated at . Comments

So... Elena and Damon are cured, Liv is not what she seems and there is ANOTHER Stefan doppleganger out there.

Yup, The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 16 gave Round Table panelists Leigh Raines, Miranda Wicker, Crissy Calhoun and Heather Vee (both from a lot to discuss/debate.

Let's get right to it, shall? Jump in below as we delve into witches, road trips and more hot Delena action...


What was your favorite scene or quote from the episode?


Heather: I, too, was a big fan of crazy! Elena pulling a dirty Klaus Mikaelson move, as someone on my Twitter TL so brilliantly put it. (Shout out, Jenna!) But I loved the playful Stefan and Caroline friend banter as well. Overall, though, I thought Elena's Stefan and Katherine hotel make-out hallucination was the highlight, especially when Damon shows up and is like, "oldest trick in the book!" It reminded me how much I am going to miss the hell out of Katherine Pierce.

Leigh: Definitely that witchy twist! I didn't see that one coming. It's been hard to keep piquing my curiosity this season, but that got my attention.

Crissy: Loved when crazy Elena threw that handy makeshift weapon into Liv's gut. And all the Caroline-Stefan stuff, obviously

What is Liv and Luke's agenda?

Miranda: I have no idea, but I'm super intrigued here. SUPER intrigued.

Heather: No clue, but agree that it has to be Other Side-related. Being brother and sister, it makes you wonder if they have a family member that semi-recently passed over, and are they working against the Travelers? 

Leigh: Well, we haven't seen a whole lot from the witches since BonBon passed away and all that stuff with Tessa. And Tessa was partially a traveler. I'm really not to hearing theories.

Crissy: Happily have no idea what they're up to, but interest in the Anchor suggests something Other Side-y...

Hotter Delena sex scene: Their first time or this time?

Miranda: Yes, Hot Delena sex is hot.

Heather: I agree, it was 10 million times hotter this time around. Though I feel the shirt-rip trick gets a one-time use and now we've overdone it with these two, so let's refrain from having Elena rip Damon's shirt every ti

Leigh: Oh ,I loved the first time because there was three seasons of buildup before we got there in The Vampire Diaries Season 4. Also, the opening of the next episode to "Eyes on Fire" by Blue Foundation, GREAT song. And yes I do remember the song because I fully downloaded i

Crissy: Hotter this time.

With whom would you prefer to go on a road trip, Enzo or Caroline?

Miranda: This question is begging for a threesome comment. But I'll go with Enzo. He can talk all night long.

Crissy: Can I be Caroline on a road trip with Enzo?

Leigh: Being a heterosexual female, I'm gonna go with Enzo... have you seen him? Also Caroline, while efficient, would be too busy sticking to our planned routes to go on any adventures.

Heather: Crissy totally stole my answer! I adore me some Caroline Forbes, without a doubt, but I'm gonna have to go with Enzo here. I mean, you guys have heard him talk, right? And, like, seen his...well, everything? 

Another doppleganger is out there: Yay, nay or WTH?!?

Miranda: NOPE. DONE WITH THIS. Put a stake in it. Done.

Heather: I love this show's wacky doppelganger mythology, so bring it on.

Leigh: Just NO. Done. Over.

Crissy: Yay to another doppelgänger. It just makes sense that there would be another Silas knockoff since Stefan. Seems like a nice human; I'm not sure Caroline will be able to go through with straight-up murdering him.


The morality of these characters is really starting to irritate me. Will Caroline really kill (or help kill) this EMT ?? Does Elena simply forget that Damon killed Aaron?? Does Elena & Jerome forget that Caroline slept with the guy who killed their aunt? Frankly, Tyler is the only character with his head on straight.

Good Questions!!!!
1. Fav scenes! Even though I stopped carrying about Elena after her choice to sleep with Damon, I enjoyed her halucinations and the moment Elena read her diary was just a brilliant move. And the Katherine Pierce backstabbing move with Liv made the episode worh watching.
2.Liv and Luke?
I really don't know. But I got a feeling Liv's attempt to kill Elena next week will end n her personal demise letting Luke go GaGa. I'm like the idea of them havng someone on the Other side and trying to bring him/her back.
3.Hot Delena sex!
I was frustrated with Elena's choice this week so the first time.
4.Road Trip Body?
Caroline for sure, Enzo is useful for other things and they don't involve talking.
5.Doppelganger Stefan!?
I like it, the idea of one Stefan alike person out there destined to be with Elena and be her perfect match is just a no brainer. Remember faith always puts these 2 together and I doubt this one will die so soon aka before he meets Elena. And we all know how Paul Wesley is bitching about wanting to play somethng different, so it's the perfect chance. The one thing VD is always doing great is their series finale arcs, they even rescued that season 4 with the graduation arc. So I Look forward to these last 6 Episodes.


Fun roundtable comments but Tyler wasn't in the episode last night. Do you mean Matt, maybe? Fave scene or quote - I'm going with the most mind blowing night of her life too! Very naughty!! ;) Liv and Luke? I didn't predict that one and I'm intrigued so far. So much better than random chanting Travelers in their musical theatre choreographed jumps from the trains. Hotter Delena sex scene? This time because NO voice overs ruining it! Enzo or Caro road trip? Enzo! He can read me the phone book on the drive...holy crap. More doppelgangers? NAY! Enough already! If you needed another doppelganger, why is he exactly Stefan's age? How about an 8 year old? Or an 80 year old? Bored of the doppelganger thing now.

What was your favorite scene or quote from the episode?
For me it was Damon telling Elena that when they could be together again that he would give her the most mind blowing night of her life. I imagined it was me that Ian was saying it to. LOL What is Liv and Luke's agenda?
I have no idea that was a twist I did not see coming. Hotter Delena sex scene: Their first time or this time?
This time. With whom would you prefer to go on a road trip, Enzo or Caroline?
Enzo! Another doppleganger is out there: Yay, nay or WTH?!?
YAY! I posted in my comment on the episode review, that it sets up the end of the doppelganger storyline and the travelers said that Elena and Stefan's blood is important to them but only when they are the final 2 doppelganger's left.
