I keep getting cut off!
As I was saying, as for this "Last, Evilaric is shaping up to be a good villain, but I fear that they are going to do what they did with Klaus and keep him around too long, considering that the only way" to kill him is to kill Elena, which they obviously can't do, so the writers have written themselves into a corner and they'll probably have to use a certain walking deus ex machina witch to get themselves out of it.
@Lizzie "Julie Plec and Co have attachment issues. They don't know how to let go of characters. And nearly every single character has now become a plot device., it's not just Bonnie anymore."
The ironic part is, before they brought Klaus into the picture and even a little bit after, TVD was a world where everybody can die. Pretty much everybody in the cast was dispensable except for Elena, Stefan, and later Damon, which was enjoyable to watch because people that you'd never expect to die actually do. Now they hardly ever kill anybody important, and even if they do they come back somehow anyway.
The reason Klaus is such as problem is that his predictability kills interest. In most every story with a hero vs a villain you already know that the the hero is going to win, people don't watch/read entertainment for that, they watch to see HOW the hero will win, and if the villain, hero, or both is predictable, the story loses any entertainment value it could have.
Oh, and as for this "Last, Evilaric is shaping up to be a good villain, but I fear that they are going to do what they did with Klaus and keep him around too long, considering that the only wa" I meant to write next, the only way they can kill him is to kill Elena, which they obviously can't do, so the writers have written themselves into a corner.
First, I'm glad Klaus is dead, though I give 2 episodes before he's walking around screwing with everybody again. I've always hated Klaus for his painfully predictable villainy since his introduction, he's not done one thing I haven't expected long before he did it since the first time he walked on screen, he's done nothing but drag the show down. I preferred when the show had more of a villain of the week/month format since it kept things fresh, and the lack of restrictions as a result in both characterization and abiliy of the villains meant they could keep upping the ante.
Second, I don't understand this love triangle. Why does Elena have to choose between Stefan and Damon? If she truly loves them both, then why not choose both? There would be nothing wrong with that, it would be a lot like a open marriage.
Last, Evilaric is shaping up to be a good villain, but I fear that they are going to do what they did with Klaus and keep him around too long, considering that they only way to kill him would be the end of the show. Either have him killed or redeemed in the next few episodes, then bring in a new villain, or else, like with Klaus he'll be stale and predictable, and we don't want that. It's no coincidence that this being one of the best episodes of VD ever also was one NOT being about killing Klaus for once.
Oh. Two more things, 1.Elena needs to GROW A SPINE and quit being such a naive "anyone can be saved" idiot. I don't care at all as to who she ends up with, (in fact, why does she even have to choose?) but Elena's been through countless atrocities throughout the series, she needs to grow up!
2. Elena either needs to turn into a vampire or at least learn how to fight. She has been a completely useless load on everybody else, never able to actually contribute to anyone's plans at all and in fact usually hinders them by getting kidnapped or whatever and being used as leveage, which has happened countless times throughout the series. At least Bonnie actually is useful to the plot, even if she is used as a Deus Ex machina far too often. Elena just whines woe is me endlessly every episode and doesn't actually do anything.
I admit, I still like this show, but the writers really need to either kill off or otherwise get rid of the original vampires ALREADY!!! They are the real reason why this show has gone from completely unpredictable to predictable in each and ever scene. The writers can't come up with a new intriguing villain so they keep on coming up with more and more ridiculous excuses to keep the originals alive. Particularly Klaus, I'll bet anything that he's the one that Damon and Stefan come from, so they'll never kill him, that's probably why they put up the kill the originals kill all vampires of their bloodline plot point to begin with. It used to be unpredictable because they had a new villain EVERY. SINGLE. WEEK. but now that they're stuck with these guys we know everything they're going to do long before they ever do it.
4. House is the main character of the show, which like all fiction means that ultimately he will win out in everything, no exceptions. That also means that House will always get away with everything bad he does too.
5. The entire dynamic of the show follows the last 4, it always has and it always will, and that's how it should be, because that is why it is good.
6. Last and most important, HOUSE IS A TV SHOW!!! Everybody, especially the reviewer quit expecting everything to be realistic. In fact, quit expecting anything on this or any other show to be realistic and you'll have a much better time watching it.
House is as good now as it's ever been, and it's definitely a hell of a lot better than most other shows out there. I'm going to be sad to see it go.
@allie Nice to see a fan of House that understands this show, as opposed to the rest of the so called "fans" that don't understand House's character and the dynamic of the show yet call themselves fans.
Here's what you need to know if you want to understand House:
1. House will ALWAYS be a anti-social, manipulative, ass who never learns anything from his mistakes because:
2. House has NEVER made a real mistake on this show. Even Chase's stabbing was actually Chase's fault, not his or that of his methods regardless of what even he tried to make the viewers think.
3. House will always be miserable, nothing that can give him happiness will ever last, and even if it does it won't change that.
Kate hasn't done the last few episodes, No more Family Guy reviews or something?
I've liked Carter well enough since the show started, and since then I've also expected Carter to join up with Reese and Finch eventually, since it's obvious that she has no real chance of catching them, or really any justification for doing so. So, I liked this episode, it seems to be the first episode that's really driving Carter towards the path I predict she will eventually end up, and it was definitely the episode that Carter really needed in order to become more than the woman several steps behind Reese. If the next episode preview is any indication, she's going to end up on the right side pretty soon.
@Childish Gambino Actually, I think Cuddy did a much worse job of managing House than Foreman has been doing. With Cuddy, she'd argue with House for a while but eventually then let him have whatever he wanted anyway, while Foreman has gotten House to do more of what he wants in this one season than Cuddy has the entire series, which I'll admit that isn't hard to do. Foreman also doesn't waste time making any real effort to stop House's antics, because he already realizes that they pretty much always succeed despite this, which is another plus he has over Cuddy.
Besides, this show's title is House, he's always going to get his way regardless of who the Dean of Medicine is.
