all I can say about this episode: trainwreck. Seriously, plec, what was supposed to be SAAAAD in this?the episode spent time doing NOTHING. Its a 5 minute plot of Alaric being asspullled into Original being stretched into 45 minutes. One contrivance after another, one predictable "twist" after the other, this episode did nothing good for the show, but make already contrived Alaric-psycho plot into more bigger trainwreck.
Take 5 minutes of Alaric-into-original-out-of-nowhere aspull plot, mix in 10 minutes of twilight edward/bella romance and 30 minutes of pure filler and you have this episode.
This episode did NOTHING for other characters.Elena is still annoying and did not even develop even for a second. But hey progress! She cried for Alaric more than for Jenna. A whole 4 seconds of tears! What a great protagonist....But of course any means necessary to save the holy caring awesome Elena who has no flaws and cares for everyone. Bonnie's romance is horribly forced and Bonnie herself continues being a plot device....this time literally lol. Steffie is back to his self-hating Edward persona. Not that he ever left. Except now there's no "i have a mysterious past and darker side" hook that he had for first season, that made us all more forgiving on his wimpy antics, expecting some huge redemption plot or some guilt...that never happened. Damon's reduced to being one-liner machine who angsts over Elena and cries, blah blah blahdee blah. The character has not been interesting since the end of Season One. Sort-of-Pointless Klaus scenes in the episode. Really what was his purpose here? Try to be dangerous? Sorry, the ponny-paintings and tears are etched into our memories, Klaus. Even more pointless Matt and Jeremy plotlines that did nothing. Spells-out-of-nowhere and plot-contrivances of the worst writing quality possible to get stuff to happen AND THEN bonnie was possessed without any foreshadowing or reason. And then alaric was an original. And then stake got infinite lives!...
Seriously. What happened to you, show?
Watching this episode felt like getting forcibly fed sawdust and cardboard for 45 minutes.
As I said, TVD fanbase is starting to resemble twilight fanbase:
thinks its the best thing EVARR. Thinks Elena is best thing EVARR. cares not for coherent plot since its all about teh love "triangle". Thinks plec's a GENIUS. THinks the plot is best evarr ,because of hook ups. rabidly attacks everyone who disagrees with the above points.
