More heroic this week: Matt, Tyler or Caroline? Tyler. He knew, from what Stefan said in the beginning, that he wouldn't be affected by the bullets...even though it would kill a vampire easily. He made a real gutsy move and really took one for the team.

Would you be angry if your girlfriend drank from the blood of your brother? I have neither girlfriend nor brother...but that scene was ridiculously sexy. I am guilty of rewinding...several times.

React to the introduction of Connor. I don't know. I'm kind of aggravated he's there... all bad-ass and kill all the supernatural creatures... I might like him better when we get a back story or an explanation of why only Jer saw his ink...

@Vampbarbie... True, she didn't mention Uncle John, did she? I mean, he was an ass at times, but he gave up his life for her.

What was your favorite scene from the episode? Just one?! This episode was by far one of the best of the series. The moment Matt offered to allow Elena to drink from him, and the way Damon looked at Matt in sort of shocked almost-respect...that was my favorite.

@Rose, your statement:
The only part that annoyed me was with matt, why didn't he get vamp blood to heal his wound.. if a vampire hunter is strolling in town, wouldn't it make sense to cover up something as obvious as a neck bite??? That aggravated me too. I mean, obviously they couldn't do it right there in church, but why not after?

@Hookified, we don't know that Katherine can drink from anything...I've only seen her drinking from people mostly...plus, that was just a theory I think. And, it also has to do with Elena being "new"..

@Miranda Wicker: Totally agree about the Originals...I love Klaus and Bex, but I'm glad they weren't there this episode...it's kind of what made it great. Also, did anyone else catch the way Damon looked at Matt when he allowed Elena to feed from him? It was like...he almost respected him.

(continued, see below) There did seem to be a few people missing among "the ones we lost" at the lantern ceremony...but, then again, so many people have died who can keep count?? All in all, a truly, satisfying episode!!

This episode was, without a doubt, the best among more recent episodes and among the best of all time. And you know why? Because the story still had supernatural elements and mythos to a degree (yeah, what IS up with the bullet markings and the tattoo only Jer can see?), but it was still so....human. It didn't rely on witchy ju-ju to fix things, or convoluted histories and spells...it was so simple in so many ways. It felt like a return to Season 1 in so many ways, and I was thrilled. I also was,um...intrigued...by that whole blood sharing thing...kind of erotic in a way! And the writing was top notch...the amount of quotable statements and witty quips were staggering...and the, the final scene, it's the first time TVD truly brought me to tears in a while. Finally, I actually am proud of the writers for reintroducing some gore into a show about vampires...Elena puking blood was grossly awesome. There did seem to be a few people missing among "the ones we lost" at the lantern ceremony...but, then again, so many people have died who can keep count?? All in all, a truly, satisfying episode!!
