Also, can I just say that I am a Delena shipper. But, I totally get why Plec and Co decided to do what they did in having Elena pick Stefan. He was her rock in tough times and Elena lost everything...he was there for her in her human life when she didn't want to live. Damon was not a stable choice for Elena. And Plec said that this is only half-way through the story...with the triangle as the main premise of the show, she is sure to go back to Damon at some point. Personally, I'd like to see Damon as end-game for the series, but the Stefan choice really does make sense with the story if you think about it. He's going to have to be there when she transitions. He is the person that helps her through things.
Also, I really can't believe the way fans are attacking the writers and show runner over a choice made on a TV SHOW. People are just ridiculous. It's not real life, people! Just enjoy the story (or don't). You don't even know the ending yet...would you get pissed halfway through a book if you didn't like something? NO! You'd read until the end. Now, if they series ends in a crappy way, it's okay to feel cheated or get a bit miffed...but even THAT won't warrant anger towards REAL people over fictional characters and stories. Besides, it's clear Julie Plec is passionate and cares about the show...she honestly seems to want to do it justice and really cares about the story and characters. Why don't people give her a break and let her tell the story?
5. If there WERE no ambulances and Stefan took her to the hospital anyway, shouldn't he have high-tailed it out of there with Elena before she woke up in the morgue??
6. Why didn't Damon try to bite Elena during their first meeting? Is it because she looked like Katherine? I mean, he was pretty bad-ass in Season 1. Doling out love advice? Kind of out of character, even if it did add into the story-line.
7. So, is Tyler in Klaus' body or are they sharing Tyler's body? How is Klaus going to overcome the nasty burns that stake gave him?
Questions I need answered after ruminating on this episode a few days:
1. Did Elena know she had vampire blood in her system when she asked Stefan to save Matt?
2. What was stopping Elena from just unbuckling her seat-belt and swimming out herself (other than the need for her to die to complete the story-line).
3. What was Stefan doing on the bridge anyway? Did he have a feeling Bex would go after Elena? Was he running out to stop Matt from taking her out of town?
4. Why did she go the morgue? Even if Stefan didn't know she had vampire blood in her system at first, surely Meredith told him at some point. They both knew she wasn't DEAD dead. Wouldn't some hospital workers freak out to see the dead girl from the morgue stroll out later? Did ambulances and police officers go to the scene of the accident and bring her to the hospital? If so, won't they FREAK OUT when they see her alive later?
I do hope it comes back but the first half of this season was so, so much better...it all started getting jumbled during the second half and too much happened...plus there were just so, so many logic fails. I want to see the show get a second chance but they must recapture the "magic" of the first half of Season 1 if it's going to survive.
@Spindae..I like the Secret Circle but the story telling is so NOT on par with the first season of TVD..and TSC is only in it's first season...I liked the first half of the season of TSC but after that....I don't know, it lost something...
Yes, Julie Plec reminded us that that is part of vampire mythos on TVD. A vampire in transition starts to remembered things they were compelled to forget. Remember when Caroline turned and flipped out on Damon yelling "I remember what you did to me!!"...
Give this season a grade.
Ruthie, agreed. I can't seem to stop myself from reading the spoilers and watching the clips...but I also end up sort of piecing what I think will happen together and it ruins the episodes. I totally called the whole Elena dies with blood in her system thing as soon as the promos and spoilers started to come out.
But I give the season a B, based against Season 1 (A+) and Season 2 (A-). The ghost thing annoys me and some of the plots resolved too quickly this season. I also take points off for logic fails, of which there seemed to be many this season. That said, still my favorite shows and the last two episodes were incredible (though the penultimate a bit better than the finale)!
Most extreme action: Bonnie spelling Klaus, Rebekah causing the accident or Elena's chipper morning mood?
Ruthie, you are reading my mind about the Klaus/Tyler thing!
That said, I guess I didn't expect Bonnie to do that but it's not really extreme if you realize it was to save her friends by (at least temporarily) preventing Klaus's death. Bex was pretty bad-ass though!
Though, when she woke up in the hospital, she seemed confused to be there...so maybe she didn't know...
Did Elena make the right choice?
I agree with Matt, that next season will result in Elena wavering a bit and remembering things that Damon compelled her to forget. I don't love her choice, but it makes sense right now I guess. I also don't know how I feel about how she HAD to make her choice, but I think the writers did their best to make it something that had to come from Elena's gut in the heat of the moment when neither of them were right in front of her. It also paralleled nicely with the choice she made with Matt a few years back. But I think her passion for Damon was different than her sisterly love for Matt.
That said, I am agree with Matt in wondering if Elena knew about the vamp blood and made the choice to turn...so Matt could be saved. It didn't even occur to me until read that interview with Julie Plec, but now...
