Give the first half of The Vampire Diaries Season 4 a grade. A-....started as an A+ but the sire bond thing, Stefan's ridiculous need to find this cure, the confusion surrounding Professor Shadypants, the half-contrived sire bond breaking by Hayley...it might be headed someplace convoluted and I tend to find TVD at it's best when it the story lines are somewhat straight forward....
More surprising: April freeing Rebekah, Klaus ripping out the hearts of every hybrid of Jeremy's physique? I couldn't care less about April's story-line and Joseph Morgan played Klaus beautifully in this episode, but HOLY CRAP...Steven McQueen has gotten ridiculously ripped...I mean his ARMS!! You could see veins...I was floored..where has that been hiding?!
Caroline ratting out the red hot Delena sex to Stefan: The right move or none of her beeswax? I don't know. Elena broke up with Stefan beforehand..it's not his business really. Caroline probably thought he deserved to know but what good would it do anyone, really?
Did Damon make the right decision in letting Elena go? The whole thing is so stupid. The witch in New Orleans said feelings have to be present pre-transition to create a sire bond. Tyler said the bonds have nothing to do with feelings. And she's still sired, just being told what to do. They never indicated that you can actually break a sire bond (unless there is a cure and Elena becomes re-humanized) and the feelings are REAL. Why not just go with it rather than them both suffering?
What was your favorite scene from the episode? Klaus kill Mayor Lockwood. Not because I wanted to see her go, but because Joseph Morgan played Klaus so well..so cold, so evil, yet so sad...
(Cont'd)he'd kill the other hybrids? His murderous moment with the mayor was quite a shock, however, and it DID make 12. I thought the episode was confusing and raised more questions than it answered, and I'm extremely frustrated with the sire bond situation, but I still liked it and thought there were a lot of great "edge of your seat moments"..
I'm irritated with the Sire Bond thing with Delena because they have been told by Tyler that the sire bond has nothing to do with feelings and by that witch in New Orleans that feelings have to exist prior to vampire transition for it to happen. So, CLEARLY, the feelings are real but the sire bond is a complication. And, really, the bond isn't broken as Matt said..Elena is just doing what Damon wants because she is still sired to him. Makes no sense. I did like the episode but it raised some questions:1. What is Professor Shadypants REALLY up to? Is he Silas or the witch best friend of Silas?2. Is there really even a cure? (I kind of hope not)3. What is with the sacrificing in 12s? Also, I love Joseph Morgan and think he is impeccable as Klaus. But I don't get how the leap was made that he would kill his hybrids for their deception, how the professor was so sure this would happen, and what it has to do with anything...I mean, he didn't kill Tyler, so why would we assume he'd kill the other hybrids. His murderous moment with the mayor was quite a shock, however, and it DID make 12. I thought the episode was confusing and raised more questions than it answered, and I'm extremely frustrated with the sire bond situation, but I still liked it and thought there were a lot of great "edge of your seat moments"..
I just don't get it...I'm so much more appealing than Elena...yet they all love her more than they loved me..Stefan, Damon (they he did love me more that ONE time),Matt...even my brother needed her more than me...
@Lici, No, he can't ingest if she's feeding from him but, according to past TVD lore, you can feed from someone wearing a bracelet with Vervain (like Ana did from Jeremy in the kitchen scene when he cuts his hand circa Season 1) or when you are wearing a necklace with Vervain (like Stefan did with Elena circa Season 1 when he was kidnapped and tortured by tomb vampires). Wearing it, in TVD world, just prevents compulsion. Ingesting it prevents feeding. I know too much about this show, wow. :-/
@whathappened: Julie Plec has said that Katherine would never return while Klaus was around.
