I agree with the rating. This season hasn't been as good as previous seasons in my humble opinion.
Best character: Stefan Salvatore. VERY complex and dynamic character this season, easily the most layered and interesting character on the entire show. Closely followed by Klaus, for always keeping me second guessing and not too far behind that, Caroline Forbes, for never disappointing me and ALWAYS bringing entertainment in every scene she is in. Can I also just say it is refreshing that after 2 seasons FINALLY another character other than Damon gets best character? It's about time.
Worst character: I have to agree, Katherine hands down. Honestly, she changes every time we see her, just to be a plot device. Remember when she first came and she actually had a purpose? Warning of Klaus etc. She really should have died when Klaus came to town, so that we got the idea that he really is a villain who should be feared. Now it is like they have gotten carried away with this once awesome and evil character, and turned her into what ever is necessary for the plot line at the time, she knows everything according to the writers, but never actually tells anyone what she "knows" until it is convenient to what is happening. I wanted to hit someone in 3x09 when she was the "saviour" of the episode, she is supposed to be the villain. Dobrev does a great job at playing her, but her characters time is well up, she has no reason to be on the show anymore.
Best episode: End Of The Affair. Paul Wesley you genius. Also The Reckoning gets an honourable mention.
Worst episode: Homecoming. I felt like I needed to hit my head in a wall after watching that incredibly predictable and overall lame episode.
Most Interesting Development: Tyler as a hybrid. Very interesting and I can not wait to see where they take it. I think Tyler is a very interesting character, right up there with Stefan in the way of complexities, and I can't wait to see more of his character this season.
Biggest Surprise: Klaus and Stefan were friends.
Best Bromance: Klefan. Shocked that this wasn't even a contender. I kind of find it adorable how they almost seem in love in some scenes, and how Klaus is this massive villain, yet he constantly refers to Stefan as his friend. Just adorable.
Most Misused Character: Bonnie. I won't say Katherine because I want her to die already, but Bonnie needs a storyline STAT, and by storyline I don't mean "Doing anything to save Elena" aka everyone on the shows storyline, I mean an actual storyline. Maybe do a Willow and go bad? UGH. JUST ANYTHING.
Hopes for 2012: Not a fan of Delena in the slightest. I feel a vast majority of their scenes are incredibly forced, because given all of the crap Damon has done to Elena, no self-respecting sane person would ever develop feelings for him let alone actually get with him/do the deed. Gross.
I personally am not a fan of the love triangle, I am much more interested in Klaus and the hybrid army. I hope we learn more about what a hybrid is/how strong they are etc because their strength seemed like a bit of a disappointment in 3x09. I also hope for more development with Stefan, I don't want him to go "good" in the matter of an episode, I want to see that development happen over the span of the season. I want less of Elena's blood is the answer to everything, it is getting TOO predictable, and I want this season to end in an awesome war of some sort between Klaus's hybrid army and Team Elena. Also I want to see where Tyler falls within all of that. Oh and I want more Forwood.
I'm sorry but I have to give this one to Troy and Abed.
I want to see Forwood for 2012 please.
LOL no thanks.
Tyler and Caroline
Dan and Blair
Stefan and Elena
She looks AMAZING.
"Ok I know that Damon killed Lexi but the way that was because he was protecting stefan and himself like san has said..."
Are we watching the same show? Damon killed and murdered Lexie, for himself. So no one thought it was him who was killing everyone, even though it was. Damon was selfish. Don't try and sugar coat what he did. It was evil. Stefan watched his best friend die. Much like what Stefan did was evil. However, Damon's was worse.
"What Stefan did to Andy was out of spite."
Seriously. Are we watching the same show? It was because Klaus was going to kill Damon if he didn't stop following them. There was no spite. It was sick and twisted but it was to protect Damon. Of course it wasn't a good thing, but it was definitely not for his personal benefit, unlike Damon's murder. It was, once again, to protect Damon, Elena and everyone else at Mystic Falls.
"He could have done something else to get the message home..."
Of course he could have. He could have simply told Damon to leave him be. But would that work? Hell no. Seeing he did tell Damon to let him go, but Damon simply brushed it off and said no. He needed to do something that was disgusting and twisted that would make Damon believe he was gone. It couldn't have been a stranger seeing as Damon had known he was killing strangers for 2 months and was still looking for Stefan. He had to kill someone they knew so that Damon would truly think that there was no Stefan. It was wrong but it made more sense than the shit Damon pulled in season 1. What Stefan did was not good, in fact it was awful, however the double standards here are amazing. Damon kills someone, it's fine, hot even. Stefan kills someone, his head is needed on a stick.
"He killed someone that grounded Damon, made him more human. Under the anger, Damon liked Andy."
Okay. This is the last time I will say it. Damon did not love, care and barely even like Andie. I don't think you realise, he compelled her, used her and fed on her. That was it. It was actually an abusive relationship. He destroyed her brain for his benefit. Brainwash. Nothing romantic. She definitely did not make him more human. I think it is safe to say Elena and Damon's general journey in season 2 did that. Not Andie.
Speaking of grounding and making more human however, what about Lexie? Lexie meant a hell of a lot more to Stefan than Andie did to Damon. Lexie actually did ground Stefan, the flashbacks are proof of that. He did care and love her (as a friend of course). In fact, Stefan killing Andie isn't even equivalent to Damon killing Lexie. For them to be equal, I'm guessing Stefan would have to kill Alaric (in which I would throw something at the TV) because Alaric seems to be Damon's closest friend. And even then it wouldn't match.
Damon killed people that stefan grew close to, cuz he thought that Stefan was trying to steal Katherine, but he found out that Katherine compelled him and that it wasn't real.
"Damon killed people that stefan grew close to, cuz he thought that Stefan was trying to steal Katherine, but he found out that Katherine compelled him and that it wasn't real."
Oh that excuses all the shit Damon pulled in season 1 then, okay. It would because he was insecure about Katherine. Therefore him killing Lexie, responsible for Vickie, abusing and manipulating Caroline, attempting to kill Bonnie and every other innocent life he killed should be excused.
Look, even as a Stefan fan I can admit when he is in the wrong. Like right now for example. What he did to Andie was wrong and all the other innocent people was very wrong. Much like what Damon did in season 1 and bits of season 2.
Damon killing Lexie was SO much worse than Stefan killing Andie. Damon did it for selfish reasons, Stefan did it for selfless reasons. Of course killing is wrong in all cases, if you're going to compare the two, what Damon did was a lot worse. Lexie happened to be Stefan's greatest, dearest and best friend for over 100 years. Andie? She was Damon's toy and he did rape her. He compelled her to love him, and she was just a distraction for whenever she got bored. It was brainwash. Hell, in just episode 19 he was about to kill her himself. He was upset at her death, sure, but I think he was more upset about what Stefan had become. I don't think he ever truly cared for Andie. There was no connection.
Then the actual reasons behind the killings were a lot different too. Stefan had to kill Andie, so that Damon would stop looking for him, therefore protecting him from death aka KLAUS. Damon killed Lexie so that the council wouldn't think it was him who had killed all of the humans (even though it was).
Both of them are wrong. I am by no means saying what Stefan has been doing is right, but if you're going to compare and contrast the actions/parallel of Damon killing Lexie and Stefan killing Andie; Damon was worse.
just tell me when dair get together.
