Aaand, Nina Dobrev still can't act even if to save her life.
I am sorry, this was supposed to be believable? this was supposed to be a girl who just died and found out she is a vampire now? sorry, what?
Nope. This was a girl who woke up after hang-over and is frustrated that someone vomited on her favorite shirt she got from salvation army.
emotional range. Elena has none.
oh look, more obligatory "to die characters that hog the screen time only to get killed for SHOCKING moment", that TVD is known for... meh.
Just end the whole hybrid storyline already. The whole Klaus storyline is one huge disjointed trainwreck by now. But then again, everything in the show is that too.
and suddenly I want to sleep.
This show is the best cure for insomnia now.
frankly the show could not get ANY MORE predictable, its already clear what happens in first ep:
- Elena whines for few seconds about this "totally" horrible situation she is in, then the rest of that time is spent on damon and steffie arguing and show making this whole situation all about them.
- Bonnie tries to un-turn Elena, fails, blah blah no one cares.
- The new random redshirt hunters rush the gilbert house, elena ends up chewing on leader and then continues to be a boring mary sue for the rest of the season.
Also, sorry show and show writers - if you expected the viewers TO FEEL ANYTHING AT ALL about Miss Cardboard dying or going through this stuff, you should have...oh I don't know, spent at least 5 minutes of screen time in those 66 episodes that already aired, DEVELOPING her into a relatable and complex character, like a lead character should be?
Sadly since that was not done and all the shock-therapy the turning could provide has been milked dry by everyone and their mothers(literally) turning into vampires, Elena does not evoke any more feelings than any other piece of furniture on the set.
Oh yay, more of Elena being an expressionless, helpless damsel in distress. Meh. Can't wait till they turn EVEN this into "all about love triangle". Hey, they ignored all the chances to develop her for three seasons already, why stop doing that now? The show will make it all about Steffie and Damon's reactions, yet again and Miss Cardboard, Bella Swan of tv shows will remain boring and character-less
And if thats Klaus in Tyler's body, the show has entered the new level of creepy and sick. Ew, just...eww. I mean, yeah, the show already ignored and excused two cases of Damon raping and abusing female character(first caroline, then andie), but now Klaus will commit a double rape? Oh yay, I am so glad I am done with this trainwreck.
Got to love how they are handling the selective amnesia storyline so far - less ship angst, more interesting plotlines and character growth. Its nice to see that it has multiple important purposes, apart from, well, angst.
The episode otherwise was AWESOME. Hank is becoming more and more likeable, Wu is getting more screentime and at the same time the main plotline is ALSO progressing alongside everything else, in style of David Greenwalt's previous shows.
Really, just flawless episode all around. 5/5
For some reason I like how Elena looks on this photo, her hair I mean, cos really that needs to change, the girl needs a make-over ASAP!
Frankly the problem is not the clothes.
Elena might dress like she gets her clothes from Salvation Army, but it would be easy to overlook if there was personality behind the rags, so to say.
Sadly Elena is boring both on the inside and on the outside.
Four words: too little, too late.
For three seasons, for 66 episodes, watching Elena has been more boring than watching a cardboard box. The S3 finale was touted as the character development episode for elena, and it failed majorly.
Do they REALLY expect for people to start caring about miss cardboard bella swan now?
To say that its a little too late for that would be understatement.
The show can't even keep its own villains sufficiently evil, no need to even start talking about turning supposedly "good" guys into "evil"
