They actually shed all the purposeless characters like jeremy,matt,enzo for one episode & let the main arc flow seamlessly in this one.The Merge-The result was more than obvious for quite some time now.Kai isn't going anywhere since we all know he's the big BAD for this entire season.He's going to pop in and out until the end.I really hope Bonnie kills him brutally in the season finale.He's just bad news!As for luke,the character was solely a plot-device from the beginning,no wonder he ended up dead.But he did step up to save his sisters-both of them-i admire that even though he failed in the process.I'm glad liv is safe,for now.And,can someone kill Papa Parker NOW,Damon please do the honor next time he randomly pops up.He's an ass.The cancer-The entire episode mainly focused on this particular track & i have to say it was very well done.Real mature & sensible.The steroline interactions & mother-daughter scenes were really heartbreaking.I feel really bad for caroline.What a horrible position to be in!I'm really relieved to see she didn't die at the hospital,that would've been horrible.Delena-I'm glad they kept their interactions as minimal & realistic as possible,although i could've done without that odd kissing scene at the end.A warm hug would've been sufficient.Oh,well... Overall,another great episode this season.Looking forward to see Bonnie's birthday & the girl herself in the next one!

I pick the girl to live.Luke can die.
Excellent episode,LOVED it!
Brilliant direction by paul wesley!This episode was so well-written & acted,i was really surprised.I liked all the scenes-especially those between dalaric,even delena,wonder twins & kai-elena conversation.Kai is a fantastic villain,probably the best they've brought on this show after kat & klaus.Although i don't like enzo's stalker-ish behaviour,i have to say i want to see what is the plan here in the long-term.The caroline-liz moments were so well portrayed & emotional.That final 2 mins was really gut-wrenching & heartbreaking!Can't wait for the next episode-The merger event is happening!!

and sad,desperate & pathetic.
Enzo stalking Stefan,no surprise here!
Great pilot!I'm hooked already!Who knew?!?As for the stalker/killer,i'm pretty sure it's Tommy!
She will end up up dead within 3-4 episodes & Enzo will snap her neck most likely!
Kat,Klaus,Michael,Kai,Enzo,Isobel,Silas & Qetsiyah.
The episode was nicely done but missed danny a lot.Why is he randomly being absent from the show every now & then since season 4?I know he became a father recently but that doesn't explain his absence in season 4.I hope the writers would include a line or two to explain why he is absent in that episode in future.
