The Vampire Diaries: A Beatdown at the Potluck (PHOTO RECAP)

What is going ON in Mystic Falls? Everyone's all pent up and grouchy! We're only four episodes into the season and it's like every character is all fidgety and angry over nothing. Obviously the grown-ups have been sexually frustrated for years now, but now the kids are too? Man, what is even the point of being a monster if you can't even get any action from it? Otherwise it's just a lot of blood-breath and torn couture. I don't get it.

But hey, you know what I DID get? That "Disturbing Behavior" was a very entertaining episode! I am not part of the Nobel Prize Committee (anymore) but I know a fun episode when I see one. Here's what happened:

First off, the episode BEGAN with the opening titles—no cold open—so you could tell we were really IN FOR IT THIS TIME. Haha just kidding, it was a normal episode, I think the editors just forgot where the logo goes. Anyway, we were in Chicago still, which you could tell by the four shots of the iconic Chicago skyline, followed by an on-screen title that said "Chicago." But really, where WERE we? Nobody knows and possibly never will.

Klaus and Stefan were chillin' at some store drinking all of the champagne and watching Rebekah be mad about modern fashion.

Stefan was pretending to <3 Rebekah but she was onto him for sure. Rebekah's pretty cool in my book! (My book has Panda Express stains on some of the pages, don't look at those.)

Meanwhile, a VERY familiar vampire doppelganger was loitering outside. Don't worry, Stefan didn't make a citizen's arrest, even though loitering is a VERY serious crime in Chicago.

Katherine was basically like, "I did a ton of detective work in the 1920s so I know about the necklace and I want to help you kill Klaus." Then they had some kind of head-tilting stand-off.

It was very serious! Anyway, Stefan was like, "Nope, talk to the hand." Classic Stefan!

Meanwhile in Elena's kitchen, she was making chili to bring to the town potluck. Because fine. Townwide potlucks are definitely a normal thing towns do, and orphaned girls are always bringing chili to them.

Damon cracked jokes about how all of Elena's dead relatives were bad at cooking, and then Alaric walked in like, "What's he doing here?" No, what were YOU doing there, Alaric?

But Alaric's raised eyebrow had a point: These people were definitely playing the I Like You game.

It's official: Jeremy is the worst sleeper. HOW did he fall asleep in this position? With a sketchbook on his shin? And why is he drawing pictures of Gorillaz?

Anyway, he woke up to a nosy ghost just creepin' on him. She seemed surprised that he could see her! Even though several times already he'd made direct contact and cringed? Do they have MENSA in the afterlife, lady?

So then Jeremy and Anna were officially communicating with each other. Although it begged the question: How long had she been chillin' in Jeremy's bed or watching him pick his nose? Weeks? Months? He didn't seem freaked out about it, so whatever. Body shame was NOT something Jeremy was concerned about at this point in time.

Caroline (a.k.a. The Best) showed up at Elena's house looking radiant and joyful despite all the bad times she'd faced at the hands of her father. But just look at her up there: Wouldn't you LOVE that to show up on your doorstep with a bowl of fun?

But this was literally the look on Elena's face when she answered the door.

Dang, is your enormous belt too tight?

Whoops, the witch is back!

Well, what are you gonna do, right? She's a character still.

Meanwhile Sheriff Forbes and her bestie Damon showed up to hopefully zap Bill's brain into forgetting his bigotry. He warned them, though: He was not as susceptible as they thought.

I'm sure everything worked perfectly.

Somewhere in Chicago, Klaus' witch Gloria was finally trying to get to the bottom of that whole "Elena's necklace" thing.

Whoops! Gloria definitely knew who had it, but she was mysteriously cagey about it. Even cagier, Stefan was like, "Oh look at that, lunchtime!" and whisked his posse out of there. Good save, Stefan!

Meanwhile at the townwide potluck (held at Lockwood Manor), the girls were all about ignoring the chili contest and getting down to business.

I realize there was a time last season when Bonnie came down out of the mountains yammering spells at Klaus or whatever, but it's such a distant memory that I prefer to believe she completely forgot how to do magic over the summer. It just seems like a Bonnie thing to do, you know?

Dang, Caroline called Elena OUT. See what I'm saying though? Why does everyone suddenly care who Elena's spooning with? Get your own demon-hunks, you guys!

Whoops, there went that dang necklace again.

Again, Alaric was telling Damon to cool it with the Elena stuff. Normally I'd agree with Alaric, but Elena LOVES undead murderers, okay? Let her get that, guy. Gosh, if MY loved one ever gets murdered by a one-thousand-year-old vampire-werewolf hybrid, I hope I don't become as uptight as Alaric has become!

Back in Chi-town (my name I just made up for Chicago), three old vampires were playing The Dozens.

I loved how genuinely hurt Klaus looked when Stefan took Rebekah's side in the non-argument. Also the fact that he was cradling a corpse in his arms. This show is just the weirdest.

Meanwhile Jeremy paused between sets of push-ups to chitchat with Anna's ghost.

Apparently the afterlife is basically just hanging out by yourself in Mystic Falls? Depressing! That said, Anna wears tons of great new outfits and possibly got highlights, so I guess that's pretty cool. Anyway, it was established that (1) Jeremy only sees the ghosts because he WANTS to, and (2) the Vicki ghost is "darkness."

Also, Jeremy can FEEL Anna. And you know what that means! Ghost boning.

Meanwhile Stefan confronted Gloria about why she didn't spill the beans to Klaus re: Elena having the necklace.

It was because SHE wanted the necklace for herself! I guess it's a witch heirloom and she'd be able to use it to chill with the Original Witch? And Jasmine Guy too, I'm guessing! I don't know, Gloria is awesome though, and I especially loved when she did THIS to Stefan while also giving him the side-eye.

Anyway, back at the potluck, the Anti-Vampire Council was holding a very important meeting:

Whoops! Apparently Bill Forbes was being honest when he claimed he couldn't be compelled? Now he's just out to make trouble. Typical Bill Forbes!

Quick question: When did all commercials become NIGHTMARES?

What on EARTH! And the one where Sofia Vergara shapeshifts into a black lady for a few seconds and then back? What is HAPPENING on Madison Avenue? Do I need to fly out there and fire EVERYBODY?

Anyway, back in Mystic Falls Bonnie and Tyler were spending a quiet night together, just doing the typical stuff two teenagers would do after not seeing each other for three months.

Yeah, so. I guess Vicki did this? Who knows. Anna might be kind of shady.

Anyway, at Gloria's bar (during business hours?) she was torturing Stefan after what I'm assuming was two hours of candle placement time. She wanted ANSWERS about Elena.

Gloria was good! Possibly the coolest and most powerful witch we've seen on the show so far—

R.I.P. Gloria (2011-2011). Hey Katherine! Nice entrance! Anyway, Katherine saved Stefan, you guys! That is because she is an ace detective and always arrives in the nick of time. One would assume that after this Stefan might have changed his mind and allowed Katherine to join his plan to kill Klaus, but NOPE. One should not have assumed that.

Back at Lockwood Manor, three characters were doing one of those classic walk-and-talks like they did on The West Wing. Except in this case these people had basically nowhere to go, so that was confusing. Anyway, Damon was all mad about Bill Forbes being around and Elena was like, "Settle."

Oh, Damon! Always playing pranks on Alaric by murdering him when he's wearing his immortality ring.

Elena was P.O.'ed about this particular murder because she has excellent rational thinking skills.

Tyler was the best character in this episode because (1) he had the foresight to skip the townwide potluck that was held AT HIS OWN HOUSE and (2) he snapped right into boyfriend mode when he found a sad young lady on his bed.

Has Elena ever been THIS much of a villain before?! How bad did you feel for Caroline? I guess I didn't feel THAT bad, because what kind of maniac answers the phone during sex? I know it's federal law for all TV and movie characters to do that, but oh well. Better luck next time, you horny monsters.

REALLY into this dude on the wall. I think he is my new favorite character? TEAM THIS DUDE. Can't wait to see THAT flashback episode!!

Dang, Damon TORE him UP. Luckily Bill has a superhero for a daughter! Because then it was a bunch of this:

I loved when she offered her dad her own blood so that he could heal and when he refused she was like "Grow up!" and FORCED him to drink it. VERY weird, but very awesome also.

But then Damon was at it again!

So after Caroline gave him the what-for and whisked her father out of there, Elena walked in all trying to make everything about herself.

He basically was just like, "Yeah, I'm a jerk. Deal with it." And you could tell Elena was trying SO HARD to think of a comeback. I bet she'll think of one in a few days. Don't worry, Elena. It'll come!

Anna discovered that Jeremy kinda-sorta still had feelings for her. But then Jeremy discovered he can make Anna disappear by blocking her out of his mind.

So then he decided to come clean about everything to Bonnie:

It's hard to say whether Anna was being honest or not, but whew! What an awkward subplot.

For a brief moment Elijah fans squealed with delight. But then a coffinblocker showed up.

Stefan took a moment to grill Rebekah for some answers about the Vampire Hunter who's been chasing them for "hundreds of years," according to Katherine. Then she took a moment to grill him about whether he will ever love anyone as much as Elena. I was like, "Dang, Rebekah, y'all just danced real close at the club a few times. It wasn't anything serious!"

Whoops! Because his kiss wasn't sincere enough, Rebekah turned on Stefan! Her accusations were more than Klaus could handle.

BOOM! Lights out for Stefan.

Meanwhile at the Salvatore Bros' underlit mansion, professional couch-surfer and part-time teacher finally awoke from being dead.

Needless to say, Alaric was NOT happy. He did NOT like Damon's prank, not one bit!

Elena more or less, once again, admitted she liked Damon but without saying it outright. In this case she claimed that she couldn't admit to liking Damon because it would be bad for her reputation? Or something. It's pretty funny that Elena thinks people aren't already horrified by her personal life, but whatever.

Poor Caroline! And with that, Bill Forbes left town. Father of the Year! In all seriousness though, I think what bugged me the most about this plotline was how weirdly real it seemed. Parents can and do say the most awful, hurtful things to their children and there isn't always a happy ending. Caroline's always been the heart and soul of this show, so I suppose it makes sense she has to bear the brunt of its pathos. Keep your chin up, girl!

Whoa, it turned out Alaric was SUPER pissed about what Damon did, so much so that he angrily demanded to join the Anti-Vampire League so that he could better represent the human beings in the town.

Very interesting! Very weird, too, but that's Alaric for you.

Dang, Bonnie got conned, y'all!

Oh hey, Katherine! Man, I love Katherine. She got the necklace back, showed up at Damon's door, and immediately sussed out that he and Elena were having a lover's spat. THEN she invited him to join her in some mischief.

Damon has good taste sometimes. SOMETIMES.

Later on Stefan woke up in a Prada ad. Just kidding, it was the back of a moving truck and Klaus just couldn't WAIT to show Stefan where they'd driven to.

BOOM! Now everyone's back in town!


QUESTIONS:
... Was Rebekah driving the truck?
... Which ghost will Jeremy shirtless-hug first?
... Will ANYBODY get action anytime soon?
... Is Alaric turning into a jerk?
... Is Caroline a BAMF or what?

LOL @ "Boom U like that". Best screencap ever. Whenever Stefan drinks blood, he looks like "The Joker". Not the scary Christopher Nolan incarnation, either. I'm talkin' old school Tim Burton or even the 60s TV series version. I think it's a combo of his lipstick-red mouth + whited out face + monkey eyes + bushy bushy eyebrows that renders me completely unfrightened by Stefan's evil vampire mode.



p.S. that was Stefan in that first terrifying commercial you capped. Being a vampire just don't pay what it used too.

I gotta say this review was hilarious! It was spot on and made me laugh out loud which is absolutely not something I do usually when reading a review of something. Oh don't know why but the picture of Bonnie with "Every time" seemed the funniest to me. Oh and what commercials are those! You weren't kidding about nightmares! I also think everyone is doing this out of nowhere judgemental BS towards Damon. it's like they are all thinking: "Well there aren't any villains around right now trying to kill Elena so let's all conveniently forget all the good he has done and use him as s scapegoat. Then when a villain shows up we won't have to apologize but we can guilt trip him into helping" hypocrites! Anyway to the questions. 1. Actually I think that would be a funny image if she did. 2. Well this was Anna's episode so basically i am thinking tag, Vicki is in next episode. And Jeremy used his "mind skills" (Hey just like HRG, I mean Caroline's dad!) to send her away so yeah Vicki. 3. No not unless Elena get's some! Anybody else notice that when she was getting action with Stefan EVERYBODY else was getting action from somebody. And now that she isn't NOBODY is getting any. And most importantly they won't get any again until she does because that is the ONLY TIME SHE IS NOT IN DANGER or C blocking everybody else. Seriously Bonnie needs to cast a spell to let her know that Elena is getting it on so she can multi text all the characters, hell the whole town, with "Ok we have a couple of hours, everybody high tail it to your partners and get busy!", She could call it the "Booty Call Spell" 4. No and I am not understanding all the Alaric hating, calling him useless to the show, i think you guys are confusing Alaric with Matt! To me Rick has always been this show's Giles from Buffy, the only adult on this show who knows everything about the others, and has vast amounts of knowledge about vamps and other various supernatural things. And Jenna was this shows's Joyce Summers, only in Buffy, Giles and Joyce weren't together, but Giles DID have GF named Jenny. But In both shows Joyce and Jenna both died, leaving Giles/Alaric to be the sole gaurdians to both groups. Anyway neither Giles nor Rck are perfect, Giles went through several dark times but always came through in the end which is exactly what Alaric has done and is doing right now. I mean he lost Isobel, more than once by the way. And more recently lost Jenna and he is till hurting, but he will pull through by continuing to be the "Only Gilbert family parent left" and hopefully more so by helping getting vengeance on Klaus. And the best question: 5. Last year after Caroline became a vampire she went from annoying and unnecessary ( a now role solely belonging to Matt) to having great character development to one of if not my favorite characters. And then today is the first time i have seen the acronym BAMF and after looking it up, YES she absolutely is a BAMF. Loved seeing her kick Damon's a$$! And her with Tyler, the other with great character development, is really great. Think about it, Vamp and werewolf makes them a "BAMF Couple!

This episode THOROUGHLY pissed me off! Why was everyone being so crabby and judgy?! First of all, when has it mattered that Damon is a jerk? Hasn't he always been one? And why has nobody been commenting on how big of a jerk Damon is these last few episodes when he was actually helping? Admittedly, he was doing it in his own jerky way, but I digress. It really makes me mad that all of a sudden every character is all "EW! Damon's mean" and nobody has brought up that Elena has been trying to find mass-murderer Stephan!

Bonnie's back. Gross.

Stefan is DUMB. He should've listened to Katherine.

I think something really bad is going on with Jeremy and it keeps getting bypassed by other dramatic issues.

THE COUNCIL BLOWS. Why does Alaric want to be on it?? Oh right, because he has no other purpose on this show.

And Caroline and Tyler are the best couple everrrrrrrrr. Too bad Caroline's dad is a waste.



Also, did anybody catch how ENTIRELY judgy Caroline's dad is when he's the one you'd expect to be entirely NOT judgy. He should've been telling her to "let her vamp flag fly!"

I want Elijah back!!! All that teasing with the coffins always on view, just give him back to us!! Elijah was the best character ever!



Love the reviews the always crack me up!!!
Reply
Flag
I squealed too...and then I cursed. They gotta stop teasing us with potential ELijah. Seriously, pull the damn dagger out already!!



Here's my problem with the episode... I have NEVER seen Stefan be so painfully dumb. Nothing he did the entire episode made an ounce of sense! He was truly stuck on stupid, this guy, and I love Stefan but C'mon! There was no subtlety in him grilling everybody, it was painstakingly obvious that he was on edge and hiding something...he didn't even try to hide that he was hiding! The amount of time he lingered at that coffiin he could have undaggered Elijah and been in Mystic Falls before Rebekah even stepped foot in the room! (okay, I know,it isn't about Elijah...but dammit it should be) My point is Stefan wasn't the brightest vamp in the world this week and his trying to pretend chemistry with Rebekah was painful as well....I don't see an Emmy or Oscar for that vamp anytime soon.



Other issue with this episode...this week's edition of the "We Hate Damon" club came out of left field. Seriously, where was the buildup? Every where you turned somebody was landbasting ELena for being around Damon...umm, this is nothing new, nor is her flirting with him, why bring it up now?Even w/o the sexual tension between them she would have been close with the brother of her missing bf, they're working together, she's one of his only actual friends' because she has a thing for lost causes...that hasn't changed either...so what was the deal? And then everyone jumping on the "Damon can't change" bandwagon and saying that he was evil?! They chose to do that now?! When he hadn't been killing people and was being relatively good for Damon? Stefan goes all ripper and careens off the deep end and it's all fine and dandy, but Damon who had been relatively good up until now can't change. WTF? He's been babysitting Elena and everyone knows that's a full time job, he saved Caroline...and Matt...from TYler, and nearly died in the process AND hasn't attempted to kill Tyler since then! Seriously. He teammed up with Bonnie to execute one of their better plans...and last week (which in TVD time is freaking yesterday) he and Alaric were calling each other brother and once again joining forces to protect Elena and themselves, and hey...Damon got chased by another werewolf so Ric and ELena could be safe...but hey...let's all jump on Damon out of the blue at the worst possible time to make a strong case for the hate, just so that we can drive Damon to do something stupid and take off to further the storyline. Poor writing if I've ever seen it.



And honestly, at some point these people are just as responsible for Damon's craziness as he is! He was fine until everyone started in on him. Like Alaric? Now you want to play Dad?! Where was that at when you were letting Elena chug Scotch? Or do anything that Elena does because all of it is reckless! So Damon broke your neck, that's like the equivalent of a punch to the stomach. Get over it! You guys can have a bourbon and watch football, and be done with it. I did love him joining tha pathetic council. As annoying as Alaric was this episode he made a valid point. Nobody's protecting the people anymore, with a council run by parents of supernatural beings. I'm sure half the dead population wish he would have made that point a little sooner, before they inexplicably disappeared and no one noticed.

"For a brief moment Elijah fans squealed with delight. But then a coffinblocker showed up." - I did. I literally squealed. I'm so ashamed...



I loved this episode! And I thought Damon's reaction to it being Katherine was hilarious. Thanks for the recap once again ;)



That truck driving thing struck me too, by the way. And I'd like to see Alaric doing something useful for a change. Perhaps he could be the new sheriff Forbes?

OMG I love it. Funniest stuff ever. My fave part is the part about Chicago in the beginning, cuz I thought the exact same thing watching that... like really? It's Chicago?? Are we getting that from the obvious scenery or the fact that Klaus, Stefan, and Rebekah are there... and that's where they are? Ha ha

I hope Rebekah came to Mystic Falls as well. And not everyone is in town are they? Didn't Damon and Katherine just leave? And one thing's bugging me. Why did Klaus just pick up and leave? What about Gloria and the necklace? Does he even know she's dead? It was SO important, but when he found out Stefan might not be as loyal as he thought he just dropped everything and drove to Mystic Falls. 'Cause that's not weird... And appearently no one in Mystic Falls minds the fact that a giant truck filled with coffins and two dudes just parked in the middle of town. Maybe that's normal there, I dunno...

* I like the jeremy-storyline a lot, but I'm not sure who to trust there, maybe it's time for ghost-vicki to return.

*I was kinda hoping for Stefan/Katherine, but Stefan had to be display that 'holier than thou'- attitude- AGAIN! So when Katherine saved him(nice job btw), I knew he would refuse her again. idiot. But isn't it kinda classic that Katherine ran straight back to Damon after Stefan's refusal?

*Alaric.. Alaric. His hair reminds me of Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Kinda. I was astounded Damon snapped Alaric's neck, but two milliseconds later, I realized: oh chill, he has an immortality ring. Alaric has never been an emotionally stable character, but that doesn't make him less interesting. I mean, he totally told the sheriff and the mayor off. *Bonnie: seriously? what a lame rentre for her. I was like: 'oh yeah, you still exist, but guess what, nobody noticed." I was totally into the Janna storyline and I didn't realize what the obstacles could be. But there it was, of course. Jeremy already HAS a girlfriend. That slipped my mind, honestly.

I can't lie I laughed out loud when Caroline's dad told her that she would never be okay because she was a vampire. I found his stubborn lack of growth more realistic than another character seemingly forgetting that her new crush has (temporarily) killed her brother, guardian and countless other nameless extras and is unphased by her ex's wall-o-victims in his murder closet... ahem, Elena.

1. I can see her as a trucker. For sure.

2. Team Janna. I want Vicki to be evil.

3. Probs Dana. That's why she's never on the show anymore.

4. Nope. I'd be a little feisty if someone had murdered me twice, too.

5. Yup. I don't like that Bill Forbes. Actually, I'm REALLY hoping he's supernatural somehow because I really didn't like how he could resist the compulsion. That was... weird. Another thing I didn't like about this episode is that Klaus just couldn't compel Stefan to tell him what he was keeping from him. I guess that would have been too easy. Also, I was kind of pulling for a Rebekah/Stefan romance... but, j/k, that isn't going to happen.

But, besides that, really fun episode. Can't wait for next week!

This show used to be my favorite show, but this is not really working for me lately, maybe because secret circle is just becoming more interesting than the vampire love story thing. I hope this show actually gets a season plot soon. Bonnie needs to use her magic and kill those ghost bitches before they still her BF. Also why does this show always kill off such good characters so soon like Gloria she was awesome. Now all they need to do is place Katherine and Rebekah in a room and let them fight it out. Overall nice episode but i feel that this show is losing its touch and my interest at this point, it can go only one way that is Klaus being killed.

Since Elena died in "The Sun Also Rises," it doesn't matter anymore. Plus, Katherine already walked in (after Elena died) in "As I Lay Lying" to give Damon Klaus's blood.

She was invited in toward last season because she was "helping" them with Claus. She also entered the house to save Damon with Claus's blood.

1. LOL. i think so... or maybe she was on Doppelganger duty already?... 2. Probably no one, or maybe all of them at the same time?.... 3. I hope Caroline does... Go Caroline!... 4. He'd always been a jerk. A walking-self-pitted-vampire-killer jerk..... 5. Caroline is a BAMF for sure. THE BAMF! More Caroline please!... BTW inst it funny how Damon -being SO MUCH older than Caroline- couldn't ever do a scratch on her? He's turning into a P*ssy for Elena basically.

"But really, where WERE we? Nobody knows and possibly never will."



That was the 147, they were on Michigan Avenue, though I'm not placing the exact cross streets for all the shots one of them was clearly taken from the Northeast corner of Michigan & Adams facing South-ish away from the Art Institute of Chicago. So, basically, you're wrong. :P



Where was the totally weird bar/clothing store? I have no idea, but if that exists anywhere in Chicago, it's on/near Michigan Ave.



1)No, after-dinner-snack was driving the truck, Rebekah was chillin'.

2)Anna!

3)Anna! ...Plz?

4)Only in the best way

5)Yes <3 her.

You're hilarious, and basically the only reason I still watch this show. Watching bad television shows is much easier to my self-esteem and mental health than getting drunk and touching people. As for Elena, I'm not sure how long I could ignore the whole mass murderer thing. Just a tad weird.

Best episode of the season so far. A lot happened, but I'm glad the 'ghost' questions were finally answered. Bonnie returned, Caroline continued to be a bad ass, Alaric got out of being the third wheel/finally got interesting again, Katherine reunited with Damon, but most importantly, Stefan is back in Mystic Falls. The next episode looks like it'll be even better.



I also like how Tyler only showed up to make out with Caroline... he must love his new role.

Anna was probably watching her ex get naked and do alone boy things.. yes that... ghost pervs, am I right? and I guess Bonnie returned from filming Honey 2. That weird Snickers commercial was around last year too and freaked the crap out of me.

Haha...when I watched Elena disappear I thought she's a ghost too ^^ haha

Maybe I watched a BeautifulMind too many times...or maybe it was just wishful thinking ;)

I was so happy when I saw you did yet another amazing recap, thank you! Just...a little mistake, here: "Anyway, back in Mystic Falls Bonnie and Tyler were spending a night in, just doing the typical stuff two teenagers would do after not seeing each other for three months." it's JEREMMY not TYLER.



Now, to answer your questions:

1) I guess since she wasn't in the back with them, or maybe she went for more shopping to give them some space;

2) I guess Anna; I actually like Anna, lol;

3) Not if cookblock Elena's there;

4) He kind of is. I mean not only a few days ago he called Damon and practically asked him to risk his life to keep him and Elena safe, but Elena would've been SUPER dead by now if it wern't for Damon. Anyway I think they getting everyone ready for Alarc's death imo;

5) Caroline's great, but Katherine's still THE BEST.



Loved these; see you next week (the next episode looks like it's going to be 'EPIC'.
