Well I must be only one here who thought this was the best episode this show has had yet. Everything fit together and the story was intense, new and different from the rest of "crime of the week" episodes.
Hank finally had some some depth and Juliette was awesome as always and it was nice to get some insight into Monroe's inner struggle.
OVerall one of the best episodes. I certainly better than sociopath-Cinderella one.
Biggest shocker: Klaus taking over Tyler, Alaric dying or Elena turning?
First. The second and third are pretty much a given people have guessed for weeks already. The first was an ultimate and utter trainwreck.
Did Elena make the right choice?
No one cares about Elena and her "choices" or overall Elena.
Most extreme action: Bonnie spelling Klaus, Rebekah causing the accident or Elena's chipper morning mood?
Third. She seemed like an antichrist. It was same boring bland cardboard, but with fake smile and chipperness and still without personality.
Give this season a grade.
F-. The show has been a headless chicken running around without any direction this season. Ultimately anything and everything that was in this season was POINTLESS and reasonless and essentially, the turning could have happened in the end of S1 and would have had ACTUAL EMOTIONAL value back then. Essentially S2 and S3 are filler seasons and nothing in them matters.
@If Elena's turning was the conclusion for this season, WHERE WAS THE BUILD UP TO IT? It would have made a lil bit more sense back in s2 when Elena actually talked about all this stuff....now its like out of nowhere.
Actually i'd say it would have made more sense as conclusion of S1 as S1 actually explored her human life and drew parallels between her and her mother and katherine.
S2 had potential in that but the show failed to focus on how the whole katherine stuff and sacrifice stuff affects her life and was too busy throwing us random plot twists already.
So yeah, turning would have worked best emotionally and shockingly in the s1 finale, with exact same scene, but with katherine instead of becky.
Well, I'll take your word for it since I haven't seen s1, but yeah...ugh...some twist they left us with, lol!
S1 was like S2, but GOOD.
You had introduction of vampire lore, council being suspicious, etc. You had Elena search for her mother(who as it appears willingly turned vampire) and we had flashbacks to Katherine, Damon and Steffie, paralleling that, with finale even having a scene where Elena does some katherine-like mannerism.
The finale even had a car crash, for pete's sake and turning her THEM would have given us an emotional pay off, it would fit with Katherine's reappearance, explain why they even want to kill katherine in S2, not to mention shock value of elena turning. It just fit with that season, the whole season.
Now no one cares about miss cardboard enough to care about the whole turning storyline.
That besides Klaus, Rebekah and Elijah, we really did not need more Originals?
Hell even Becky is pushing it since she is basically Katherine 2.0.
I said this before and I'll say it again, NOTHING in S2 or S3 contributed to this finale in anyway. It could have as easily happened in the end of S1 with Katherine instead of Becky. Thus in the end both S2 and S3 are pointless.
If Elena's turning was the conclusion for this season, WHERE WAS THE BUILD UP TO IT? It would have made a lil bit more sense back in s2 when Elena actually talked about all this stuff....now its like out of nowhere.
Actually it fit more with the end of S1 with both parallels to Katherine and Isobel and a lot of talking about how death affects them all, not to mention back then we saw Elena's self-discovery journey. S2 the whole "i dun wanna die" scenes and end was seriously tacked on upon a season that focused on entirely different things before "Sacrifice" trainwreck.
In the books since the last blood she drank was Damon's she thought Damon is her mate when she turned .. But then all the memories came back and she went back to Stefan.
that period when she became vampire built up the DE connection and by the end of the last LJ-smith written book she genuinely loved Damon and at very least would not be content without them both and at most, loved damon more.
Yet again, that was a different Elena. Not this cardboard form tv show.
One of best episodes this season.
Its quite clear Jane is playing a long con on Red John nad has some thought on the CBI bosss probably being involved in RJ stuff.The question still remains on if RJ won't turn it around against him.
And while its a con, it does showcase just how far and how dark Patrick can be.
I just love how some fans decide that the criticism in those comments is because of DE and SE.
A lot of people could not care less about Damon the crybaby misogynist abusive rapist or Steffie the crybaby abusive alcoholic.
There are far more outright ridiculous things in this show that break it apart and make it impossible to enjoy even as trainwreck.
she basically just cares for other people, leads people on because she's afraid to hurt their feelings etc.
So bassically she is EVEN BIGGER bland caring mary sue than original thought before this episode? Big whopping surprise.
