I totally, utterly loved this episode. I was really surprised by the review.
I understand what you mean by the sire thing and that Damon could just tell her to have free will and that'd be that. Relationship-wise that would be the most sensitive thing but that's not what Damon wants, and I think both Damon and Ian have successfully shown in this episode that it feels like cheating to Damon, even if someone says that it doesn't affect feelings. Because it somehow does, I believe. We did see it with Tyler, even if latter he hated Klaus in the beginning he was all Klausteam-like. I enjoyed Delena scenes, they felt real.
On the other hand:
- Hayley's story is interesting because of Shane. Shane is shady.
- I was pleasantly surprised that Klaus was in on shady-team's plans. Was not expecting that.
- Human and killer Klaus on the same episode. Yay!
- RIP Carol. No surprise there.
- Tyler's plan felt like an excuse for his personal issues on the man, but giving the hybrids time seemed sensitive. It's obvious he wouldn't have killed them, he needed persuasion and a date to give up one who had already betrayed him, but there are other things he could do. Just look at how Carol ended up. Look at Katherine's family. If the guy wants revenge he'll find a way to get it.
It was the twists that the episode lacked. And not much happened. I'm really happy that what I consider a pretty mediocre episode of POI was (by standard standards?) very good and had the whole Fusco thing going on...
I am not a shipper and I'm the type who just enjoys the story as it goes. Just FYI.
I noticed Joseph Morgan was credited yet Klaus didn't appear. That was a little disappointing but I only noticed once the episode had ended. And that's a good sign. Klaus not missed = me impressed with the episode. 5 star.
On the Elena... thing. (((I am strange (I know, no sweat) in my own way as I do not judge people by their actions but by their souls. I don't believe in evil; our past just shapes us.))) Damon may be very in the wrong most times but he means well, especially when it comes to Elena, and what shocked me (like most) is Elena's happiness. She was really undeniably happy. So I say scr*w the sire bond. He can be careful (...) and she can be happy. For now Delena all the way.
Caroline is justified and the etc of all previous comments..
I have the feeling Tyler is WAY over his head here and.. well.. something to do with tvfanatic's post for the promo...
@swan30 I thought she might die too. Or that she should've suffered some effect. I watch the show with my friend and I actually told her: "she'll die". But whatever. Magic is unpredictable. XP
@Ace I agree about the bean and the ashes. It's literally what I thought.
I love how Emma's magic was addressed throughout both seasons and now it's finally becoming really important (and that it didn't just happen out of the blue).
LOL at how Ruby was there but basically did NOTHING but fly through the air. That girl needs a storyline asap.
I fear what's ahead. Love this show.
Same here. Although I never really rejected the idea it did seem weird and totally out of the blue. Turns out it had already been mentioned back in season 3. And if you think about it, it makes sense if siring mostly occurred when the newvamp was in love (or had feelings at least) with the oldvamp. If they do it right it could become worthwhile. And though I'm not a shipper of any kind (okay, maybe klaroline) I think Delena will get it's scene when the time is right.
PS: The time was NOT right. Actually the timing was bordering heartless. Really? They'd JUST broken up!
This may be totally stupid, but I think that one explanation for the "plothole" would be that hook's hook was enchanted to steal hearts. It would be really ironic.
