My problem with the sire bond - if Damon just tells Elena to leave him and move on, that's not breaking the bond, that's abusing it. Just another order she has to obey. So I agree with Leigh, Damon should just be able to tell her to do what she wants, problem solved.
Caroline is totally justified to hate Damon's guts, nobody is denying that. But what she's saying about him is not really hurting him, it's hurting Elena. Would it kill her to be a little less cruel about it? Damon has been there for Elena through the darkest time, does she really need to hear the "man slut" comment? I have to say, when Caroline basically accused Damon of raping Elena and Elena stood up for her man and kicked our favourite blonde out, I was kind of proud of her. Side note: is Carolineâ€™s voice always that annoying or just when sheâ€™s interrupting Delena sex scene? Seriously writers, once is bad enough, twice - thatâ€™s just brutal.
After Stefan's douchebaggery last week, this week he was kind of cool most of the time. There were few hiccups, like with all that "selfless" talk. It was totally awesome when Damon called him out on doing this for selfish reasons, to restore Elena's "Team Stefan" settings (the best line of the night). And btw, I dare say that for many months now Damon has been the most selfless person in the mix.
Here's my problem with Stefan - for me his whole epic-my-ass puppy love with Elena comes down to the fact that he sees her as the opposite of Kathrine. He thinks the severely depressed "Team Everyone" Elena is the real Elena, so when she does something FOR HERSELF, he freaks out. And I am serious, his "I-need-to-be-with-Elena-or-the-world-will-end" attitude needs to stop.
Elena should have known something will go terribly wrong when Damon said two things: that he's happy and that they should have one secret selfish day to themselves. Because a) Damon has never been happy in his life and b) when all you want is one day, you can bet it's gonna get ruined.
I was so prepared for a major depression after this episode that I was surprised it turned out to be not so bad. Mostly due to what the (of course as always) black witch said about vampires being sired only if they had real human feelings before the transition. The look on Stefan's face when she said it - priceless. Sorry to burst your bubble, Stef.
Special shoutout to Tyler for cheering Elena up with the whole acting vs feeling thing. Way to go, Ty.
Final chapter - I'm really hoping for something that will make me like him again...
Is Chuck about to make a huge mistake - I'm with Christina and Leigh. Chuck will pull a Victoria and take down Bart using this series of freak accidents.
Favourite quote/scene - Nate punching Dan. How awesome was that?
It wasn't the best Thanksgiving episode in "GG" history, but it was definitely my favourite episode this season so far.
Biggest surprise - Bart being Dan's role model. I mean... what the actual f***? From Rufus to Bart, that's the new definition of EXTREME.
Team Dan or Team NJBC? NJBC all the way, always, until the day I die. Honestly, I don't get it. Dan wants payback because they've always made him feel like an outsider and looked down at him? Guess what, Dan. You ARE an outsider. Don't be naÃ¯ve and delusional, in the real world people are not equal. And just FYI, it doesn't matter if you're from UES or Brooklyn if you're a dick.
Honestly, I can't remember the last time Elena looked so... glowing. Yeah, I would love me some Damon love too :)
Australian promo broke my heart. In a good way. Delena is just painful to watch sometimes, they are so awesome.
Personally, I have nothing against Stefan, I like the guy. But Stelena just bores me to death, I can't help it. If that's an "epic love", I never want to experience it. No offence, Caroline Forbes, but... EPIC. MY. ASS.
Dear Lord, this season was so damn DEPRESSING... Jax keeps going down the dark road and my heart just keeps breaking. I'm not even sure how I feel right now.
The one thing I am sure of - Tig is freaking awesome! When he started crying after Jax saved him, I swear I cried too. That was definitely my favourite scene. Thanks for keeping him alive!
Definitely not my favourite episode this season. Hannah freaking out about her dad was pretty well done, but from the moment he showed up it was obvious to me that Dex will end up killing the guy. And like some other people here, I can't help but think that maybe this was what Hannah wanted from the start. She seemed way too helpless, I'm not sure if I buy it.
I feel a little disappointed about the whole Fantom thing. Last week I thought this new storyline was interesting and now it turns out it was just a way for Dexter to realize he's responsible for his killings... Yeah, what a breakthrough...
What would you hope to accomplish as Miss Mystic Falls? Survive the next year.
Favourite scene - apart from the obvious one (Delena is HOOOOOT), I really liked the dream scene, when Jeremy choked Elena with her necklace. Evil Jeremy is so creepy.
More likely to hook up - I'm totally with Leigh. Tyler is on his way to being angry at Caroline enough to have some naked action with Hayley.
Delena sex scene - even with Caroline and Stefan's annoying interruption, that was SO DAMN HOT! Sire bond stuff is obviously making me angry, because now everyone will have doubts about how much of Delena's hotness is real. But the thing is: since when sire bond has anything to do with falling in love? It doesn't work like that with Klaus and his hybrids. They don't even like him, all they have to do is follow direct orders, right? It's not like Damon told Elena to sleep with him, she was perfectly able to do that on her own.
Professor Shane's endgame - he obviously wants the map. Other than that, guessing is probably pointless.
