The thing isâ€¦Caroline is justified in her opinion.
It doesnâ€™t have to disrupt Delena. AT ALL. If there had been just one line about Caroline remembering how Damon treated her. The episode could have ended the exact same way with Caroline agreeing to keep her opinions to herself and Elena wanting to be with Damon, I just wish they had included why Caroline is so anti-Damon instead of making her sound so irrational. Because being compelled, raped and fed on is a really good reason to not like a guy and not want him sleeping with your best friend.
Maybe itâ€™s the rewatch of early season 1 that Iâ€™m doing but when Elena called out Caroline on â€œjumping into bedâ€ with Damon, I just found that really insensitive. Elena, do you not remember her breaking down, sobbing in your arms, covered in bites and bruises, saying that sheâ€™s fine but obviously knowing she wasnâ€™t? God knows Caroline is rash and judgmentalâ€¦but have you forgotten where sheâ€™s coming from?
I actually would love to see Spencer and Caleb being friends, they could be hilarious together. Just because a guy and a girl spend time together does not mean they need to get together, besides, Caleb still cares for Hanna and I'm sure Spencer would have some reservations about going after about her best friend's ex, especially considering how much she loves Toby. Not sure about that Wrenna kiss though...
If the guys of Rosewood ever sat down to compare notes, they could probably help the girls figure out what's going on. I'm so glad Toby took a stand, may this lead to some action in figuring out what the hell's going on.
Only on GG could the man who actively tried to ruin your life and rape your stepmom come back on good terms. But I can't even be angry about it, Jack as a comedic character was hilarious last time, and I'm really excited for his return.
The words "True Love's Kiss" are my new mantra. Because how else is he coming back?
Can somebody please refresh my memory and tell me why everybody was such a bitch to Jeremy about Anna? Maybe it's because we viewers have the luxury of fully hearing Anna's side and I know I definitely prefer her over Bonnie but I feel like I've forgotten something that explains all that animosity.
I really hope they bring her back, I really, really like her character. If nothing else, she's a beautiful example of how no matter how old a vampire is, they still retain the emotions of their age. She was a scared, lonely teenage girl and I was hoping for more Jeremy/Anna. They're a better ship than Jeremy/Bonnie at the moment.
Personally I really dislike Bonnie simply because her character seems to very self-righteous and judgemental, and is written flat. And VD is becoming one of those shows where the villians are FAR more interesting than the good guys. It also doesn't help that I love Anna, she's seems like a much more dynamic character.
I can't tell if the twin thing was setting up for the book's plotline of Alison's twin or if it was the show's writers paying homage to the book series that started the show. Either way, the story was creepy.
I really, really prefer the girls (especially Spencer and Hanna) the way they are now as opposed to when they were with Alison. It was weird seeing them timid. I honestly can't understand why they put up with her for as long as they did. I'd actually love Jenna for standing up to Ali if it wasn't for the scene with Toby and Emily that showed that he was already suffering under Jenna's rule. Poor boy, I wanted to give him a hug.
And as much fun as this special was, it was...weird seeing Alison for a full episode. It's one thing in short flashbacks where we see how manipulative she was, but a full episode showed that she was borderline psychopathic. Honestly, the smug, condesending way she would talk whenever she had a secret, is it any wonder she made so many enemies?
Wow, this Charlie/Ivy thing is so screwed up that I forgot there was a real Charlie Rhodes out there somewhere. I'm actually interested to see where that goes.
Personally I thought Mercedes was being a bit childish. Rachel is egotistical, annoying and arrogant but she wanted to win fair and square. She was ready to accept sharing the lead with Mercedes and at the end, was guilty that things turned out the way they did. Plus, something seemed off with Mercedes, she's unsually been more reasonable but she was snappy, and feeling sick, was their something more going on there?
I absolutely loved this episode, mostly for Stefan, Klaus and Rebecca. I'm pretty sure the flashback with drunk Stefan and Klaus was probably my favourite in the entire series, they actually had a bromance. A bromance! To be honest I really want to see more of that comraderie. Plus, I loved the character of Rebecca, I imagined her to be clingy Katherine, but she seems quite enigmatic.
After all that's happening with the originals and curses and what appears to be some ancient Big Bad worse than Klaus I actually found it distracting to see Damon and Elena on screen. Kudos to Damon for willing to risk every thing for his brother, but it was actually kind of nice to see Stefan telling Elena to just go home. Obviously she knows nothing about all of this, but from the viewers standpoint she should really just go into hiding and pray she doesn't get killed. And interesting to see Katherine again. I won't say she's completely useless just yet, but I want to see them actually do something with her. How's she going to react to this Rebecca?
And it was a little dissapointing to see so little of the Caroline storyline, after a really good cliffhanger. I didn't miss it much because I was too focused on Stefan and Klaus, but how did I miss the scene where Sheriff Forbes figured out where Caroline was? I really feel like there should have been a scene, or am I blanking on something?
Anyway, I'm starting to hope Ripper Stefan sticks around for a while. He and Klaus were really funny together, I am so excited to see where that relationship goes.
