@Neejan I understand what you're saying and it summarizes the situation quite accurately. However, I guess what I'm going for is that I fundamentally disagree with some of the Green Arrow's principles. Sometimes, death is the only means of truly silencing the in justice. The Hood is beyond Oliver Queen, it's evolved to the point where anyone can be under the green costume. Helena is still at revenge stage which is why Oliver should let her experience that phase because no matter how many times he verbally admonishes her she won't be able to move on.
It makes no sense to me why Oliver is so worked up about Helena getting revenge on her father. It's the equivalent of the death penalty, something Oliver is in no position to deny Helena's right to execute. There's no slippery slope because the reason is fundamentally sound and the punishment is equal to the weight of the crime her father committed. Innocent lives were lost only because Oliver refused to let her deliver justice the first time around. Other than that, fantastic show all around. I look forward to more flashback scenes especially because of Manu Bennet(Crixus the Undefeated Gaul in the Starz Original Series "Sparatacus").
This was a sharp episode in many regards. I mean giving Matt Donovan more importance than just being a blood bag for Elena and the possibility of Damon finding a new 'drinking buddy' was amazing in and of itself. And Bonnie? She's actually talking to someone other than Elena or one of the vampires. All the Alaric references were pure genius. By the way, this Stefan/Elena break-up better last since it's been a long time coming. Klaus is as usual in top-form. Jeremy Gilbert. Need I say more about the promise the character possesses? I hate to end this comment on a sour note but why is Tyler still alive? I feel like he's weighing down the show somehow but not in the way Matt or Jeremy were who were simply off to the side. to Littlelight: I agree, Stefan needs to broaden his scopes out of Damon's sights.
What I don't understand about the cure is that it seems that it can only cure one vampire...o.o. Then what's the point of even having a cure. Anyway, Jeremy's tattoo opens so many possibilities. I look forward to Jeremy being deeply involved in this season's direction. Damon's as sharp as ever, while Stefan seems to get duller by the minute. Elena's better as a vampire, she's still that overly-sentimental type who leads on two guys (who are brothers at that) but at least she isn't the helpless victim. Good Round Table.
Bored Now and Amie both nailed it. I have a faint feeling that Season 4 may actually be worse than Season 3.....
Hahaha all this debate over BoredNow ignores the fact that his original post was SPOT ON when it comes to this picture. I've already voiced my opinions about his careless attitude when it comes to expressing his thoughts in a disrespectful manner once and that was enough for me. Everyone continuing to harp on a guy who obviously hasn't changed and likely will not is wasting their time because it feeds his ego. Albeit I do understand the need to vent like he himself does too often perhaps. Anyway.... off to Game of Thrones this Sunday.
Everyone has made key points that should be addressed by the writers. You know things aren't going well when all the comments agree that nowadays Elena = annoying, simple, naive, bitch. No offense to Nina, but Plec and the typewriter gang need to gather it together.
HAHAHAHAHAHA, Sally's character is hilarious. Just amazing.
-Note: I have only finished up to this episode so I am unaware of the future developments. I'm really disgusted with Josh's overall pathetic nature. All respect to the actor who does this part justice, but story-wise I can't get over the fact that Josh is so stuck in this human-loving mentality. He has no respect for his fellow wolves, is utterly selfish when it comes to having his way, and extremely awkward in almost every situation. I guess what disturbs me is that fact that he doesn't embrace his wolf, at all. At least Aidan actually struggles between being the "vegetarian" and a live-feeding vampire while maintaining his overall good character. On the other hand Josh is so fixed and doesn't understand that Nora killing her ex who left horrible scars on her makes sense albeit being slightly overboard. Nevertheless, he does help keep the plot interesting. ~end rant~
There's some real potential in this episode to bring in other regular character (specifically Grace) into the Red John arc. Either way, even the "standard issue" crime in this next episode sounds like a legit case perfectly suited for Jane.
