Normally I don't comment about reviews - noone really cares about some random commentors opinions except the people who sit on the computer for hours with no lives and nothing else to care about than what a bunch of strangers say. BUT I do want to answer the question in the review about this being the first time Lily has worn jeans... Not true. Season 1, in the loft with Dan's father. Can't remember exactly what episode. But it's happened. Possiblly just the once. But I know it has.
Okay, they definately got back on track with this episode. I almost wanted to hug Rebekah. Almost.
Okay, why are people saying that they are related when he just "Shot down the notion that they are"??? THAT MEANS THEY ARE NOT RELATED PEOPLE!!! Ugh. But I'm excited to see what happens now that this silly ghost stuff is out of the way. I'm a bit irked that absolutely NO mention WHATSOEVER of Michel, Klaus, Rebekah, Tyler, or Katherine in this last episode. They were all pretty big in the episode before, and then it was like all of a sudden they didn't exist. I'm glad we're finally back on track and out of that ghost nonsence.
Caroline: I thought to be a cheerleader, you're supposed to have boobs, not a water bra.Rebekah: I thought to be a whore, you're supposed to wear a short shirt with those elementary school braids.
You did forget to mention that this episode said nothing whatsoever about four charachters with the names of Tyler, Katherine, Rebekah, and the vampire-eating, vampire-killer vampire. They comepletely left out the cliffhangers from last week. And seriously, if Rebekah was determined to take over Carolines life and make her miserable like she was so determined to do last week, why was she nowhere to be seen? What, were she and Tyler passed out from too much drinking (hardy har har)? This episode definately didn't have the awesomeness that this entire season has had so far. WAY off their game on this one.
Okay, I will throw this out, maybe it hasn't been addressed or maybe since I'm five months pregnant my memory has temporarily gone kaput, but do we even know if Originals need an invitation? You know, since they can do things regular vamps cant? As for Stefan, He is a LOT more fun with no humanity. i hope they don't bring it back too quickly. Because you know they will. Rebekah...hmm...I've got to wonder WHY she cares about ruining Caroline's life. She's no threat to her, she knows that. I just don't get it. And duh. Katherine is not dead. They'd never kill her off. It's too fun watching Nina play two characters. But you do have to wonder if, when Stfan was getting his blood let out of him by the witch and was told "you feel that, that's your essence, you lose that and you're dead." or something like that....It does make you wonder if a vampire losing all of their blood means theyre dead. Since blood is their life. I did like how it was a throwback to the first episode of TVD, when Elena came out of the mens bathroom and bumps into Stefan. And am I the only one wishing I was the one getting the whole "way to a vampire's heart" lesson from Damon??? No? I thought I wasn't. =) Whoo hoo! Bring on Delena! They've got SO much more heat than Stelena. Seriously. Who agrees? (I don't care who you ship, just tell me if they have more HEAT)
Okay, this episode was good, but full of holes. For one, HOW int the WORLD did they get LEGAL documents drawn up in the space of fifteen minutes to an hour or two, while never leaving the Waldorfs? I understand that they're royalty, but with how many pages and clauses there were, that would have taken HOURS. It's not the only hole I found, but I don't have enough time to list them all, and I'm sure the round table will mention them tomorrow. Not the best episode, but better than last week's.
Ugh. How did I see this coming.He gets stronger and faster and cocky. Thus, he's going to act like he has testosterone poisoning. AKA being a dooshbag. But, I guess for a couple whose ship name sounds like the name of a town.....maybe they're not gonna be together forever. I just liked that we had one stable couple on every week. But, this is TVD, what else can we expect.
I wish Jenna was one of those coming back I really liked her and cried when she died. I want to know what would happen if she came back. But Lexie....what's she going to think about Stefan going back? "Ugh, again, Stefan? Bloodies Anonymous again with you!"
If I had to pick my least favorite episode from this season, although short....it's this one. So far, at least. ALL it was about was Dan's book. At least in the other episodes there were several things going on at once. This was DANS BOOK, with the little sideline about Charlie/Ivy. The rest? either Dan's book or things being ruined BECAUSE of Dan's book. BORING. At least in my opinion. He's never been one of my favorite characters, and I don't really like his frontrunner-ness in this episode. This wasn't a very scandalous or intreguing episode at all. Now, the next episode, I'm not sure I'll be able to say the same. I, as well as all of the rest of us, are dying to see for ourselves exactly what is in that envelope, be it what Blair has been preaching all along, or if it's actually Chuuck's baby. B does have a tendancy to try to convince herself that the world will go her way, and if she can get other people to believe that, then she will, and I think that's what she's doing. She was too scared to lose everything she built with Louis that she deluded herself into thinking the test was wrong, and so THAT's the way it will be, unless someone finds otherwise. Only time will tell if my suspicions are right or not, but it has Blair written all over it. Like Dan's book.
