The Vampire Diaries "A View to a Kill" Review: Kol Dances into the Fire

The Vampire Diaries S04E12: "A View to a Kill"

“A View to a Kill” was a good episode to drop into. After a rocky start to Season 4, the last three or four episodes have done a lot of good work toward righting the ship. Much of the season still feels like less than the sum of its parts, but as it capped off this leg of the main season’s story arc, The Vampire Diaries is at least bringing its full arsenal to bear once again.

One weapon in that arsenal that’s been missing much of the year is camaraderie. "A View to a Kill" started off with a rare glimmer of relative happiness: Jeremy and Matt’s bro-time had shifted from wrestling at the cabin to playing Xbox on the Gilbert sofa, and Bonnie was busy preparing yet another Mystic Falls theme party to Caroline’s meticulous standards (I hate that this made two episodes in a row with no Caroline, but I loved the detail that, yes, she absolutely would notice if the gym were 10 red balloons shy of Nena’s specifications).

It was a small moment, and one immediately undercut by an enraged Kol, who decided it might be easier to rub out a witch than a hunter. (Kol, it turns out, isn’t very bright.) But those fun interludes, however short-lived, are vital to keeping the emotional bonds among the characters in place. Three seconds' worth of Elena busting her kid brother’s chops over doing chores can be worth ten times as many sober pronouncements about protecting him from the sundry dark forces that mean him harm, if only because, to us, it’s a more accessible way of relating to a loved one. Maintaining that groundwork allows the show to pull off its huge, violent, convoluted schemes and still keep us caring.

This week’s scheme, courtesy of Elena, involved her baiting Kol with a false truce while Stefan kept Rebekah wrapped up in another web of heartfelt emotional manipulation. When Kol let his guard down, Elena and Jeremy would kill him—and his thousand-fold sire line, fleshing out Jeremy’s hunter’s mark in one fell swoop. Then Matt would dagger a distracted Rebekah and Bonnie would handle Klaus with whatever Plot Convenience Magic she had up her sleeve. Three Originals on ice, simple as pie!

Of course it didn’t go exactly as planned, because welcome to The Vampire Diaries. Kol’s guard didn’t drop, though he did oblige Elena and us with another restatement of why Silas the Great and Powerful is to be feared. Bonnie was waylaid by the first instance of two parents in the same room at the same time on this show in like 53 episodes.

And Rebekah—forever jerked-around, crapped-upon Rebekah—saw through Stefan’s head games and decided to simply give in. Their pas de deux against the deserted, melancholy backdrop of the aborted Mystic High ‘80s dance was a fun twist on both the “sentimental drivel” of that decade’s teen movie aesthetic and this show’s penchant for galas with concepts as high as their mortality rates. Stefan getting the party started with The Cure was a delightfully hoaky wink, but using the motif (and Bon Jovi) to call back to his bond with Lexi cleverly brought the exchange to a deeper level. The lines between scheme and sincerity blurred even before Rebekah’s scarred, affecting surrender.

In the episode’s other heart-to-heart between a Salvatore and a Mikaelson, Damon and Klaus engaged in some old-fashioned “villain bonding time” in the slightly less festive environment of the former’s cell. Klaus, possibly having read large swaths of the TVD commentariat, demanded to know how it is that Damon’s many cold-blooded transgressions never seem to make a dent in Elena’s opinion of him. It’s a fair question to ask, since the show has never quite figured out whether it wants Damon to progress along any sort of moral arc, and if so, how. Seriously, you could fill out two-thirds of an Alignment Chart with just Damon, from different points in the series’ run. Damon’s response (which opens the door to more scrutiny than this review has scope to get into—please, weigh in in the comments) laid out the crux of his M.O.: “If you’re gonna be bad, be bad with purpose. Otherwise you’re not worth forgiving.”

Back at the Gilbert homestead, Kol eventually had his fill of exposition and decided to get back to some murderin’. Except that, as I mentioned before, he’s not very bright. Leaving Elena wounded but clearly alive before he shuffled off to dismember Jeremy is piss-poor villaining. Keeping the white ash stake in his coat pocket, in easy reach during a scuffle, isn’t much smarter. He deserved to meet the business end of that thing.

Showing up at the right instant to witness his brother’s death sent Klaus into a boiling rage, but Bonnie’s arrival was just as fortuitously timed. Kol’s demise was predictable—he was never so much a character as a danger to be thwarted—but the resulting ramifications were bracingly intense. Bonnie’s trick of inviting Klaus into the house only to imprison him there was a neat reversal of the traditional residence-barrier. I also enjoyed how clear it was that Elena hadn’t the faintest idea what Bonnie was planning at that moment, despite “Bonnie takes out Klaus” being the third leg of Elena’s original plan. Way to think through the details there, Elena.

So the scheme to get three Original threats out of the picture more or less worked (for now), the map is in hand (and arm, and entire torso), and most of the gang has linked up again. The next stage of the hunt for the cure is on. All we need to do now is figure out where the hell Caroline and Tyler ran off to.



NOTES


– A Duran Duran title, but not one Duran Duran song? You wound me, show.

– Bonnie’s had one of her strongest arcs ever this year, getting enmeshed in complex and ill-advised relationships both with Shane and with his expression magic. But she’s also done so largely on an island, disconnected from the other core characters. I like seeing her drawn back into the mix of the main action.

– So, is Elena going to ever grapple with the ramifications of her decision to sacrifice tens of thousands of innocent vampires in order to advance her goals? This makes two episodes where the show’s moral compass has barely batted an eye at mass murder, and for a show that has taken pains to depict vampires as decent people at least as often as they’re monsters, it should acknowledge the darkness of that turn.

– Did Stefan know about the vervain-laced water when he gave Damon a bottle of it prior to letting Klaus stand guard?

– Stefan called the Originals “dysfunctional bickering lunatics.” There’s your promo tag for the spin-off, CW!

– I fully believe that Damon has an actual, physical Revenge Sex Handbook.

– “Put these weapons away before someone tries to use them on me.”

– “Or are you one of those Mary Sue vampires?”

– “I happen to like Earth just the way it is.” Kol, echoing Spike’s sentiments in Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s “Becoming, Part 2.”

– Stefan’s a fan of Say Anything, The Princess Bride, and The Breakfast Club. I’m betting Damon’s more of a Heathers man.

– Jeremy randomly reminded everyone of Katherine’s existence, which has Chekov’s Doppelganger written all over it, folks.

Good episode, where one of Elena's plans finally worked out (no thanks to her planning though). I really loved when Kol was about to dismember Jeremy and had already stabbed Elena. Is it bad that I got annoyed when Elena was getting free and they managed to kill Kol? Seriously Elena and Jeremy are the worst main characters. She gets sad when one person gets killed (well she used to) and now she's partaking in genocide. However I did get excited when Klaus threatened to burn the house down and kill everyone, love him.

I'm pleasantly surprised with Bonnie's new "expression" magic. She is actually an interesting character now! She is powerful and isn't a lame witch who gets nosebleeds every three seconds. I'm looking forward to watching her rise up and then get seduced by dark magic till it leads to her self destruction.

Also Stefan and Rebekah are brilliant together, even though Stefan can be a manipulative douche, I think he sees the humanity in Rebekah that he longs to see once again in Elena. Rebekah > Elena (no matter whether human or vampire). What this series has shown us is that everyone is usually so much better off when they are not in a relationship with Elena.

Anyway I'm over all the Macguffins and "race for the cure", lets just skip to the part where Silus obviously gets raised, they all realise how they should have listened to Kol, the cure probably doesn't exist there and all hell breaks lose. Cant wait!

Just saw this episode tonight. Until recently, Kol was background filler, more or less, who was barely memorable, let alone noticeable. If they are doing a spin-off series, killing Kol was a huge mistake. Did they know they were going to kill him off when they thought of doing the spin-off? He, to me, was being developed much like Damon - edgy and unpredictable - and not like the others who seem more boring or predictable in comparison. Add to that that he was the youngest Original left - not sure if younger than Rebekah - and he would have provided good material in the spin-off, particularly for a CW show aiming for that young and/or female demographic. What's the point of the Originals series, if you are killing most of them? The mother, father, the young brother killed by the werewolf clan that started all this, if not mistaken on that, plus Finn and Kol are now gone unless they somehow resurrect one or more of them. Is Claire Holt joining the potential series too? Why Phoebe Tonkin, if not her, unless she's staying on Vampire Diaries?

It also bothers me that after all his years of existence, he's been taken out so easily? You can't tell me he had no prior experiences, human or otherwise, with those trying to kill him? These guys have been reduced to being no more powerful than standard vampires, so they've begun to ruin what was so special about them, which should include centuries of knowledge and wealth. It's a shame.

If the spin-off fails, I won't mind too much, but this should have been really thought through more, or salvaged, if they can.

By the way, who exactly is Silas? Is he a vampire too or a witch or something else? I am guessing that next season will deal with him?

I also forgot to ask - Who's vampire line are Stefan and Damon of? Klaus? Was that established? I know there was concern over killing them when killing the Originals before, but can't remember if they figured that out for sure.

Yep, Klaus is their guy. That's why they've stopped trying to kill him ;)
I think Rebekah and Elijah talked about it once, but I have no idea how it became common knowledge.

My name is Bond, Sire Bond.

So it's a shame for the Duran Duran song, but since it's also a James Bond title song co-written by John Barry, it would have cost more than the episode itself, IMHO.

Elena has to be the wimpiest and annoying vampire ever! I can't wait until she takes the cure. She might get some sort of personality once she becomes human again. Gotta love the Originals, deep down their wicked cold blooded hearts, they care. Psycho-serial vampire killer Klaus loves Caroline and asking semi-reformed Damon for advice. Touching and disturbing. How cool was Bonnie boxing-in Klaus at the Gilbert residence? It's about time someone can cripple an Original. Don't hate me Stefan & Elena fans, but I thoroughly enjoyed the Rebekah & Stefan scenes. I think those two could truly make a go of it, if Stefan ever gets over his Elena obsession. Elena needs to stop drinking the Rebekah haterade. She lost the right to be jealous once she choose Damon and announced to the world she is in love with him. So grow up Elena, you can't have your cake and eat it too. Last, I must share my favorite jaw dropping moment...Jeremy shirtless. Any excuse to have Jeremy rip off his shirt I'm all for it. I had to manually close my jaw. I vote Jeremy to be shirtless for a full future episode! Who's with me? Hoping next episode really goes somewhere, cause this story line is dragging. Over n Out.

I'm thinking since they just killed of like 1/5 of the vampire population (2/5 since they killed finn tooo) shoudn't that leave a lot of pissed off partners and friends? I mean not all of these millons of vampires were bad right? It would be kinda cool (and realistic) if our MF-gang got hunted down by a mob of angry vampires (created by rebekah, elijah or klaus) who sought revenge for the death of their loved ones.

Solid plan I like this idea, sorta like when Lexi's boyfriend came after Damon, and I don't think they'd need to track them down, hell Klaus would probably tell them if he thought it would cause trouble.

It would be awesome. But how would they track 'em down?!
Reply

Don't know really, but there must be other vampires who know about the originals and since they are feared, maybe they know their wherabouts (and therefore they have stayed out of MF so far). Then they might be guessing that if Kol died in MF then the killer might still be there. I'm thinking there must be more vampires like Slater (remember him?) that likes to keep track of known vampires.

But sadly i think my theory above will remain just that. A theory.

so the tvd writers must really deeply regret killing off lexi. interestingly she hosted some clips for this short web show 'tvd #rehash' where she hilariously goes over twitter comments with hashtag tvd. cwtv has cool stuff for tvd fans now i have checked it out for first time in a long time.

Am I the only one who didn't miss Caroline at all ?? I remember when Bonnie wasn't even written in 4-5 episodes in a row. Why are people complaining. Bonnie is my favorite character on the show so I'm glad she gets more screen time. :) :)

"Stefan called the Originals "dysfunctional bickering lunatics." There's your promo tag for the spin-off, CW!" -- This made me smile, very clever.

The episode was action packed, amazingly fun to watch. Stefan/Rebekah scenes were touching. Especially when she talked about having a family. Stefan is so great paired up with anyone but Elena. He is always brooding to quote Damian and all about protecting/obsessing over Elena. It's been not fun to watch. But now that they have broken up, he is GREAT!

Also small note. I believe there is NO CURE. I think Shane lied to them. Hey, I may be wrong but all the signs point to no cure.

You are not alone. I did not miss Caroline one bit. That's how great the episode was, and that's how well the people there commanded the viewer's attention.

I'm starting to wonder about the cure too! I mean remember the Sun and the Moon curse? I have serious TVD trust issues after that awesome moment of WTF?-ery!

Usually I'd miss Caroline but she's been such little Judgy McJudge for the last couple of eps its a refreshing break. Also the sun and the moon curse was so stupid. Remember the freaking moonstone!! Now instead of a moonstone we have a headstone wooooo...

Yep! I do remember the Sun and Moon curse being one big nothing! The writers really upset me, that's why I think there's no cure. : ) :)

Oh god the cure is for sure a sun and the moon thing, it was probably just a bunch of witches came up with it so they would release Silas, so bored with the cure, I think that's why them killing Kol sucked even more, not only did he die but he died for the stupidest reason. who really wants Elena to be human again come on, who would want anyone to be human.

Agree, also very bored witht the cure! I thought it was a crappy idea from the beginning, I mean you can't CURE a vampire! They are dead, end of story.

But one interesting thing that the cure has brought is that we no longer have the MF-crimefighters v.s. Klaus. Instead the MF-team has been seperated and now everyone wants the cure for different reasons. This makes whole new situation for our characters.

Bane, Delena, Klaroline, Mabekah, Janna (even though Anna is dead), Jalaric (even though both of them are dead).
This is the way to go.
Although I'd prefer Rebekah would just be forever alone.
And I feel bad for Tyler. He can just go with Hayley and have wolf-babies.
Yes.

I just had an epiphany. In the season finale, Damon will mistakenly get the cure, turn human then die in someway as a human, then be resurrected by Silas, thus breaking the so called "sire bond" between him and Elena. Whaddya think?

It would have been a really bad strech to put the water there, if Stephan wouldnt have known. Noone has ever drunken water before... The show is better that that, so I will believe there is something behind that.

Klaus was beeing a pussy for a while now. The werewolfgenocide last week was progress, but now I am looking forward to seeing a full on evil Klaus.
It does feel like the show just uses morals whenever see fit. But maybe we get some regret out of it at some point? The "my brother means anything to me" speech at least lets us doubt.

Also: apparently "dagger" is a verb now. Love it!

I honestly never thought Klaus was that bad, I think he could be really sweet if he had people in his life. I mean Stefan and Damon have both become better people since they had friends and loved ones to make them want to be good. But than again I liked Sylar from Heroes, so maybe I just like the bad guys. I feel sorry for them cause they are usually the most damaged and have the most potential.

Oooh and btw I re-watched s04e04 and then one of the five says "We have the ultimate weapon wich no vampire can survive". Why do our main cast seek the cure if no vampire can survive? As I've said before, I doubt that the cure is as simple as a brew or a potion. First rule of TVD: F*ck logic!

THE WHOLE ELENA/DAMON/STEFAN/REBEKAH DEALIO:

Okay, they've all had their pros and cons this episode, but there are some things I'd like to point out.

1. I've never really liked Rebekah (Stebekah kinda makes me nauseous), but I actually kind of felt for them this episode. It was like they were in their own little universe. Then I got over it. Plus, is anyone getting sick of Rebekah's little "I wanna be human" moments? You've had enough, girly, we get it. You're sad and lonely. Mmhmm.

2. Damon outing Stebekah to Elena: it was a dick move, alright. But you know what? Stefan's going on about how he won't care and how he's not in love with Elena anymore, but if you don't care, then why are you so ashamed and pissed for Elena finding out about it? If you were the badass you claimed to be (puh-lease), then you would just go along with it like the several times Damon had sex with the blonde bitchy Brit.

3. Damon and Elena are losing the chemistry they had a couple episodes ago. More lovey-dovey stuff, please!

4. This isn't related to any of the other three, but Stefan is kinda giving me a headache. Douchebag. You were so much cooler as Ripper Stefan.

1. I think Rebekah's main redeeming quality is how much she mourns for her humanity. These Cure episodes put that quality front and center in an attempt to endear her to the viewers. She really does have the best, most real reason for wanting to be human. She's walking the fine line between sympathetic and pathetic.

2. That was just so in-character for Damon I would have been shocked if he hadn't pointed it out right away. He is one to use the truth as a weapon and he isn't one to deliver bad news gently. He's particularly quick to point it out when Stefan isn't perfect.

3. The hug at the end was sweet.

4. Ripper Stefan was fun. Agreed.

This is a thoughtful, intelligent review. I quite enjoyed it! I agree that Elena should show some remorse for killing thousands of innocent vampires...but then she has always been an extremely self-absorbed character. I'm glad they didn't dagger Rebekah as I enjoy her character and it's been done many times already. Not sorry to see Kol go, and I wonder what havoc Klaus will manage to wreak next. It was interesting to hear his true motive for wanting to find the cure. I foolishly believed that he wanted to cure Elena to make more hybrids!

Ok... I'm really feeling mixed about this ep.

1. Another original has bitten the dust. They better not kill any more or they won't have any left for their spin off series. I'm pretty gutted about Kol... was hoping for a bit of character development first. Though his scene with Bonnie at the high school was a complete let down. They hyped it up so much and it lasted about 20 seconds. Great.

2. The moral compass on this show - jeez I have no idea where its pointing these days. At some point I hope someone is going to be like "Damn, we just committed genocide".

3. Felt so sorry for Rebekah. No, Elena you can't be mad at her now. You just killed her bro. Also, you're not with Stefan any more so stop with the moaning. I'm not really fussed if she is with Stefan or Damon - they both have their pros and cons - but I really would like this sire bond to sod off now so she can just make her final choice and we can get on with our lives.

4. Shirtless Jeremy. Nice.

5. Klaus :( I know he's done a lot of bad things - but after his talk with Damon about Caroline and we see his softer side, he witnesses his brother die. That's chilling.

6. Where's Caroline!??! I need Caroline back in my life.

7. Bonnie scares me.

That's all.

Good episode. Still think Stefan is a big fat hypocrite and that Elena needs to just grow a back bone! Seriously, if Stefan really thinks she's sired then she didn't really have a choice in sleeping with Damon, so what right does he have for hating her and wanting to forget her, etc. Makes no sense to me at all.

How can Elena grow a backbone if she's SIRED, she has to follow what DAMON wants whether she likes it or not. That's NOT her fault, however infuriating she is. The only "bad guy" in this whole sire situation is Damon, even though it's not really his fault and he didn't ask for it, he CAN just stop telling Elena what to do, but I guess that'd just be too hard.

And what about the thousands of vampires that would suddenly die?
The major reason to object to the vampire hunterism is that some vampires can be good people (see the main cast)

But if they are, that means that Elena and Jeremy just killed thousands of INNOCENT PEOPLE TO DIE!

Reply

Yes, that's a much better point. Elena was all torn up about killing one guy. Suddenly she has no problem whatsoever with killing what may be thousands of people, some of whom are probably not monsters. I can forgive that she wasn't bothered by Damon's participation in the murder of many innocents recently, since the sire bond may make her unable to question what he did, but there's no excuse for this.

Also, the whole idea of killing Kol instead of several normal vampires to make things as safe as possible for Jeremy was an extraordinarily stupid idea, even for Elena. Did she suddenly forget that originals are as physically superior to normal vampires as normal vampires are to humans? If the writers hadn't "forgotten" it too, she'd be dead and Jeremy would have been "disarmed" by now.

I see Shane as the Mastermind-Villain with Bonnie as his witchy, powerful sidekick.
He would laugh and stuff, and she would be wearing a slick leather and shooting fireballs, and then they would go have quick sex and then fight some more.

1. Okay, we all expected Kol to die, but I was sad. I sat on my couch with my mouth lolling open before I screamed, "NO CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT, HMM?"

2. I'm pissed. This episode actually made me feel the slightest, most infinitesimal spark of caring for Stebekah. But then I got over it.

3. Klaus asking Damon for relationship with Caroline was hilarious. And adorable. And so desperate--I mean, you're asking DAMON for relationship advice, he who supposedly never got the girl until a sire bond (although we all know Elena loves him). Yeah, I know, villain-to-villain, but it's still funny.

4. Bonnie and Shane relationship, Bonnie and Shane, Bonnie and Shane, BANE! (It just SOUNDS cool.) I've been obsessing over this possible relationship. It's overtaking my Klaroline addiction. Oh, man.

5. How hard did you laugh when Jeremy randomly ripped off his shirt with his muscles flexing?
C'mon. It was freaking hysterical. In a cool way. Loved it, but hysterical.

what's the big deal with killing Kol again? Oh, what? Genocide? This is TVD, no? lol.
I'm just saying, these characters have always killed innocent people on their path to get what they want. It is a hefty amount this time around but we all know the show gets ridiculous time after time.
In other news, this was actually a really good episode. And it was not just Bonnie people, Kol was annoying up until this episode then he dies. #TVDShit. Don't they always do that? Make sure a character is likeable before killing them off? Gotta love that.

I didn't see anything that made him likeable. On the other hand, these last few episodes made him a bit more than just some guy that we don't even recognize when we see him.

Wow! I have to say that I really, really, really liked this episode!
- So Kol was actually likeable! That was the first sign that he was obviously going to be dead by the end of the episode. It was the first time that he actually came off as a whole character and an interesting one at that. Can they...will they EVER explain the fascination with the Originals and the witches? Kol out of all of them, had been hanging around witches the most. Which is code for Black people, which means Kol is that one soulful white guy. Which means Kol was an honorary black person. Which is why he died. I kid. But seriously, I really would love to know this thing the Originals have for witches. And now I kinda have the urge to read a few of those Konnie fanfics with a fresh perspective.
-Bonnie was freaking awesome!! How is that possible that I ended up loving Bonnie, Stefan, Kol, and Rebekah in the same episode? I have no idea. But I did. She was all badass and had some nice little snarky lines, and I loves me a snarkette. I mean while on one hand it was nice seeing parents being parents in MF, and Abby wasn't wrong in saying that she doesn't owe her entire life to that Gilbert girl, facts are facts. The fact is her vamp mother bailed on her like three times, and her father was an absenntee father. Her Grams was dead and for the longest I just knew Bonnie and Matt were taking turns washing their clothes in the sink of a gas station restroom. Bonnie wasn't having that ish and I loved her take no charge attitued. The return of the vampire brain meld, and her powers that are still weak as far as WTF does she actually know how to do? But I didn't care this time because she was kinda awesome. I wasn't mad at you Bonnie.
-OMG VILLAIN BONDING!!!!!!! My Klamon dreams were answered! That talk between Klaus and Damon made my night. I'll be damned if Damon didn't say in a few lines what I've written in paragraphs, as far as explaining why Damon is the way he is. Best lines, he knows that he has to be the bad guy in order to get shizz done. Which makes me think of Tina Fey's "You know what? B!tches get stuff done!" Boom. "If you're going to be bad, be bad with a purpose." I was in heaven. Also Klaus trying to figure out how he can woo Caroline and still be a dick. I love Klaus to pieces. There is this void with Damon not having the bestie with Alaric dead. Meredith sucked. And he's kinda having these moments with Jeremy,Matt, and Klaus that are kind of fun.
-Stefan had me in hysterics with his attempt at the walk of shame out of Rebekah's room. And Klaus basically like do whatever you need to to get that dagger from my sister, even if that means sticking her with your dagger. Oh Klaus, not too many brothers would urge a fellow to bang his sister. He couldn't even hold it in either. Such a gossip. Just between us girls. Did I mention JoMo is awesome? Stefan and Rebekah's moments were spectacular and for the first time in the entire series I actually bought them as a couple. A legit couple. I like them together. I always felt like out of all the characters Stefan would best be suited with a Caroline or Bonnie, romantically if it came down to it, but him and Bex makes sense. I don't hate it. I don't mind watching it. By the end he seemed genuine in wanting her to have what she wants, and Claire Holt brings such an innocent and vulnerable quality to an otherwise bitchy character. Loved them.
-Elena put a freaking plan in motion and it kinda sorta worked! When does that ever happen?!! It was messy, that much is true, but it worked for the most part. I mean killing Kol was so un-Elena like of a solution to their problem, but pulling it off was masterful. Especially when she and Kol had some interesting moments where they kinda connected and he seemed so human...like he genuinely may be on the right side of this. I would have expected her to back out. I'm still not certain as to how Jeremy could pull off killing an Original? Seemed like it shouldn't have been able to happen with that kind of ease, but whatever. But nothing was so amazing as watching Kol set aflame and Klaus freak the eff out so brilliantly. Did I mention JoMo is amazingness personified?! Say what you will about the Mickaelsons, they love each other, they hate each other, but hell will freeze over before they leat an outsider screw with one of their own unless they want it done for themselves. It's twisted and yet so synonymous with the sibling bond. See also the Salvatores. Klaus' reaction was the best. I love how he's trapped like a rabid dog in the Gilbert living room. At least he has a comfyy couch and an Xbox, and he can see the ashes of his brother's dead corpse. Now unless Bonnie magically teleports their asses to noweresville jungle off the coast of where the hell are we? I'm trying to figure out how this timeframe of 3 days will work for them. But TVD isn't known for reasonable timeframes.
-I didn't miss Caroline. Nice that they mentioned her though. I didn't miss Tyler. I'm soooo glad that the vervain is back because the compulsion thing was getting to be too much. I love watching the Salvatores kick each other's asses. Then make up, because I'm Team Salvatore. And What the bloody hell are they feeding Jeremy? That hulk moment should have been cheesy as I don't know what, but damn if I didn't' get distracted by all that muscle. Apparently Bonnie did too. Her face. Loved it. That is one ripped man-child.

Laughed out loud multiple times reading your novelette here. :)

"Which is code for Black people, which means Kol is that one soulful white guy. Which means Kol was an honorary black person. Which is why he died." (Ok, well, this first one wasn't a laugh out loud moment. . . but so unpleasantly true. . .)

These others though:

"Also Klaus trying to figure out how he can woo Caroline and still be a dick."

"Stefan had me in hysterics with his attempt at the walk of shame out of Rebekah's room. And Klaus basically like do whatever you need to to get that dagger from my sister, even if that means sticking her with your dagger. Oh Klaus, not too many brothers would urge a fellow to bang his sister. He couldn't even hold it in either. Such a gossip. Just between us girls." (I LOVED Stefan's attempt at sneaking out. . . at vampire speed! And I thought the same thing about Klaus being so cool with all the sister banging. But, he does kinda love Stefan, so I'm sure he doesn't mind the idea of having him as a brother in-law. And anyway, when you've been around that long, and you don't have to worry about STDs or pregnancy, you probably get a little laid back about sleeping around. Seriously, love how Klaus and Rebekah are both giant gossips. . . and they have the power to make everyone gossip back, truthfully!)

" At least he has a comfyy couch and an Xbox, and he can see the ashes of his brother's dead corpse."

As others have said, I thought your insights were wonderful, and I've already said it was funny. Butttt. You're clearly a little too far on the Damon side of the Salvatore equation for my tastes. . . And this:

"How is that possible that I ended up loving Bonnie, Stefan, Kol, and Rebekah in the same episode?" Umm, I always love all of those characters, except Bonnie sometimes, not that it's the actress's fault, but the writers have been known to leave her out of the fun a lot!

Haha, I'm not giving you trouble. :) Just saying, when you're offered the job of recapping the show (know that this won't actually happen, just a joke), you should only accept if you think you can be nice to Stefan, etc. ;)

But seriously, great episode review!

I'm team salvatore baby. I love both the Salvatore brothers with a fiery burning passion and I try to avoid all that ship stuff. I'm more defensive of Damon because the guy catches a lot of crap and in an ideal world both the Salvatore brothers would stop fighting over Elena and her magical hoo ha and go off and be all cool and awesome and amazing because they are. I know you weren't being mean or anything like that!LOL! I'm not taking it that way, but this whole choose a side thing is so petty. I like Stefan. I like Ripper Stefan. I like snarky I don't give a shizz Stefan. That was why I loved him more in this episode than I did in previous ones because for once he wasn't kissing Elena's ass and it was beautiful. Freaking beautiful. I like Stefan when he isn't pining after Elena. So I can't help but chuckle every time someone says something about choosing a side...because I'm probably one of the few fans that doesn't. ;) But Thank you for somehow finding me funny! LOL!

As Vick444y said below, you'd be great at writing recaps!! :) I agree with all these points except missing Caroline, even if I only missed her after the episode was over and I realized she hadn't been in it… The Mikaelsons don't care if they screw with their siblings, as long as THEY'RE the ones who are messin' with their own family.

The next episode should just be called "Consequences."
Because after all of the actions these crazy kids have just taken, there is going to be a shit-stome of consequences.

1. Do you really think you can just kill (how many?) vampires who were linked to Kol and that there wouldn't be any fall-out at all? Yeah right.
2. Klaus. The big bad wolf is coming for you! Speaking of, at any point are we going to ever see him wolf-out? I do hope so.
3. Elijah is a family man and a guy you're going to want on your side, maybe you shouldn't piss him off???
4. Big-Bad-Bonnie! Is she going to snap? *fingers crossed*
5. Oh hey, opening the tomb or whatever that has the cure will bring about the end of the world... we don't care, we want to lose our immortality and have babies! (flawed logic much?)

***Possible Spoiler****Dont Read on if you don't want to speculate******
So if you've ever read the books or even talked about them with anyone we all know Damon dies. Now, not that the show really follows the books cause "we're going to do our own damn thing," but I'm thinking there's been a lot of foreshadowing of Damon dying on the show. I think they were testing the waters to see the fan reaction when for a second we thought that Jeremy might have actually killed Damon. Also Shane has been talking a lot about bringing people back from the dead.
So I'm going to call it now, that Damon gets killed saving (probably Elena) someone and they use Silas to bring him back. Which would make his self sacrafice all the more reason to love him. *ahem* giving Elena (no-longer sired, due to his death) a chance to truly prove her love.
******End Possible Spoiler********

I really hope that Jer's Katherine shout out is a foreshadow that she's coming back, please please **fingers and toes crossed!!!**

Ps. I actually liked Kol. Sorry to see him go. Le` sad :(

True, but I feel like they HAVE to address that all those vampires died. There has to be some kind of fall out over that.

It's really, really true. I've often thought just that.

And then I come here, and we're just discussing a silly soap/supernatural hybrid tv show, and everyone is so kind, and thoughtful, and DEEP, with lots of fascinating insights into the show and the entire human condition, it seems. :)

In conclusion, you're all pretty great!

I actually love this Elena, Dark Elena and Dark Bonnie taking over! She will do everything to keep her family safe and now she's shown how far she's willing to go instead of the whimpering Elena always being the goodie-two-shoes.
About Bonnie, she's needed and NOW both her parents (who kinda left her with her granny and never looked back..??!!!) do an intervention? Makes no sense. U guys, u didn't raise her u don't really get a vote in this. (and i like Bonnie go dark yes go go go).
I like Rebekah being sincere. It's a good look on her. She knows what's going on but still she's true to herself. Kol dying wasn't really a big move. This show, really. Dragging out Jeremy losing his arms and killing Elena, I mean he IS an original, right? He could've done it in two seconds. But then the show would kinda be over. We need villains who are dragging it out, talking a LOT, otherwise our heroes wouldn't get the opportunity to finish em off (as always in movie-land).
Damon and Klaus villain bonding was just funny. I love Damon being the wise guy and go like 'I am who I am deal w/it'. I mean Klaus is the older one, he should be all like that but he seems so insecure. Well I'm team Damon till the end anyway. Good episode!!!

Here's the bit that confused me. Last season didn't the main group decide not to kill Klaus, because didn't know which Orginal sired Damon and Stefan's bloodline, therefore there was the distinct possibility that by killing any one of the orginals, they might kill themselves. Am I remembering that wrong?

Because if I'm not, Elena's plan was playing pretty fast and loose with the Salvatores' (and her own) lives.

In the finale they confirmed that Klaus was the one who sired them but I don't remember if Elena or any of them were ever made aware of that. That said, I wouldn't expect her to think anything through that far. I'm pretty sure she can't read.

Also i glanced at most of the comments below, am I the only one who really doesn't care that millions of vampires, innocent or otherwise, were killed?

Idk I think that almost every main character in this series is driven by the irrational urge to protect his/her own. They do things that could be considered perhaps immoral for the sake of protecting their loved ones in an expedient almost emotionally driven fashion. I do think, however, that even though from our perspective these actions are morally questionable, within the world of TVD this "genocide" is at its worst amoral. I don't think it had anything to do with morality or even murder itself but rather survival (albeit, the need for which was precipitated by selfish goals), and as horrible as it sounds I think when one is dealing with supernaturals and "the un-dead" murder is already (to an extent) outside the realm of human morality.....that may or may not make sense....

'irrational urge' It's called self-preservation. Personally, I'm all for that.

Yeah I see your point; I only call it irrational because while it is sometimes a matter of "life and death," it is usually more about protecting a select few people (mainly Elena), from actually dealing with life in its various permutations. For example this whole cure thing is about finding a way to de-vamp Elena. She would not die if she remains a vampire; the only "bad" thing that could happen is that she would "lose her humanity" by actually killing people/vampires who would die anyway by another being's hand in their seemingly addictive need to all protect Elena. I have absolutely no problem with it, and while I understand that within this world it probably is rational self-preservation I can't get myself to call it that.

(I find it interesting that none of them even wondered whether "curing her" will make her human again as opposed to making her a different kind of supernatural)

But yeah, genocide didn't really bother them…I bet all the houses in Mystic Falls have padded walls. If you look in anyone's wardrobe there's going to be a row of straight-jackets on nice hangers. :)

I dont really care, it is just hypocritical as fudge. A little bit inconsistent but personally I dont care at all. You gotta do what you gotta do.

I don't care either. I think each of these people has proven in the past, when it comes to their friends, they'll do anything to protect them even if it means killing innocent people. It would have been nice to get some indication they felt remorse or were at least aware of what they were doing but...it's TVD.
