Talk about being bored by unnecessary story lines...I watch online, and I just completely skip over the Terry, Lafayette, and Andy story lines. Couldn't care less about them. I watch for the Authority/Bill & Eric and (surprisingly) Tara/Pam/& and now Jessica(?) story line (and I guess Sookie and Alcide are all right :-). Everything else is ridiculous, out of place, and there's just way too much going on!

How come there was no review for the new episode of Criminal Minds that aired on Wednesday, February 8? It was guest starring Dean Cain...

As for Jeremy, I'll miss him, though I'm sure he'll be back. This show has proven they don't mind killing people off when the story demands it. If they were going to get rid of Jeremy for good, I think they might have allowed him to be killed. (although I realize the effect that could have on main characters like Elena, and they probably didn't want to stray with that either).

To end with, I have one question for Matt Richenthall. You've been saying for months that Bonnie has become a horrible character in the way the show uses her as nothing more than a plot device. I agree with you, but how does the show change that and still keep her around? Should there be a huge story arc for her that gets her back on track, a new love interest (though that hasn't proved successful in the past). What do the writers need to do to bring Bonnie back, to make her a true part of the show again, or should she still be around at all?

Something I was quite excited about was the introduction of Dr. Fell, Dr. MEREDITH Fell to be more specific. No offense to Paul Wesley, but I could care less that his wife is playing the part, I'm interested in the character. Anyone who has read the books knows that Meredith was a very big character. Now in keeping with the show's history, this Meredith is completely different from the one in the books (which I'm glad about, I like the show much more than the books), but the introduction of Meredith was something that Kevin Williamson promised last season would be coming in the near future so I've been waiting for it.

I'm going out on a limb to say, I think that may be another reason why Sara Canning as Jenna was killed off last season. They were making room for a new romantic interest for Alaric.

For me personally, I was happy to see the Delena kiss finally. Sadly, I think I was kind of glad that they just did it finally, and wasn't so happy about the kiss itself. I agree with what others have said it was tainted by Damon telling Elena that Stefan saved him, because now Elena is more confused than ever. But never the less I'm glad the kiss finally came, and I am looking forward to seeing where they take it in the coming weeks.

After last week's episode, I answered the poll with "Predictable and pathetic". But after this week's episode (Episode 6x10), I changed my response to "It was obvious, but I'm still intrigued". I am now much more interested in watching the rest of this season (and the next two seasons). I agree with many, this has been a poor season for Dexter, but I think there may be hope for redemption...

How can you not comment about the whole food pyramid story with Eli? I thought that was hilarious! (right down to the music they played every time one of those scenes came up!) I thought it was a great way to show just how ridiculous so much of the lobbying and political maneuvering tends to be today. I mean seriously, trying to get corn on your side as either a vegetable or a grain...! I know this episode was written and filmed before certain recent events, but it sure tied in well with the whole pizza is a vegetable thing...

My first thought towards the end of this episode was, "Huh, suicide by tornado, that's a new one". Seeing the UnSub awaiting the twister and then getting sucked up...you have to admit, that is definitely a story line that Criminal Minds has NEVER done before (or any other show for that matter).

I could be wrong, but I think there may still be more trouble on the home front for J.J. It seemed like she was definitely having issues, and maybe this episode was just breaking us in. Or I could be completely off, and that was the extent of it...only time will tell.

Definitely agree: Amy and her brains, gross and annoying.

And very happy that Leonard and Priya have called it quits. I liked Priya in the beginning, but when she told Leonard she didn't want him to hang out with Penny anymore...yeah that didn't go over very well with me.

Sheldon, as always, was hilarious. 'Nuf said...

I loved the episode, flashbacks are always winners with me. HOWEVER, I did have one problem (admittedly minor) with Stefan's scenes in the bar. We have had it pounded in this season that Stefan is a RIPPER, that once he starts drinking blood, he can't stop. Isn't that where most of the suspense was in the "The Reckoning" when Klaus compelled Stefan to drink Elena's blood, when he shouted at Elena "I'm a ripper, I'm not going to be able to stop!" So, why then was Stefan able to drink just a bit from the girl in the bar and then stop and let her walk away. I know this is not pertinent to the story line, but I hate the inconsistencies!

Aside from that and the fact that Katherine's fate is still a mystery after 2 weeks, I thought the episode was fantastic. The Lockwood's family secret doesn't seem like such a stretch after having it explained that the Original family...originated in Mystic Falls before it was ever Mystic Falls. Ok, so I still think it's a bit of a stretch, but a bit more believable now. As with previous seasons, I think Season 3 has some serious potential building, and I can't wait for next week's episode. Although having to wait until January 5 is not so exciting!
