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!!

Will Elena really stick with Stefan?
Obviously not. The premise of the show is the triangle...Julie Plec has said that many, many times.
Elena even alluded to her fickleness during the "Teen Wolf-like" roof scene when she said "I can be with you forever...if I want" (or something like that).
There is no way this is the last of her "choices". Who knows if Stelena or Delena will be series end game (both have their merits)..but she'll go back and forth a few times before then for sure.

Why did the Pastor blow himself and the Council up?
Not. A. Clue.
I'm not even sure I remember Pastor Young...have we met him? Should I remember him? I want to say compulsion but I don't think so.. I'd say they all drank vamp blood but I'm not sure anyone can "come back" from being blown to pieces..even with vamp blood in their system. I am going to go with them being some sort of symbol to other hunters. His statement "We are the beginning"...maybe just means they are setting off the chain of hunters? Plus it burned up all the vervain...

Who makes a better Klaus: Joseph Morgan or Michael Trevino?
Joseph Morgan IS Klaus when he plays the character..no contest. And "Love" and "Bloody" just sound ridiculous being said in an American accent. Scarier moment: Bonnie's nose bleeding; Rebekah getting staked; or Elena laugh-crying?
None were all that scary really. I guess Bonnie... I was actually most frightened by Klaus's outburst against Bex.

What was your favorite scene of the premiere?
You need a woman's perspective on the round table because you all clearly did not fully appreciate the awesomeness of the tension filled Delena exchange that took place by the car OR the Klyler/Caroline almost sex scene OR the way in which Elena remembered Damon compelling her after he confessed his love (my personal favorite moment).
