The Vampire Diaries: Let's All Get Killed

Aaand we're back. Was that the longest two weeks of our lives or what? I don't know about you, but my Thanksgiving vacation was completely ruined by the lack of new Vampire Diaries episodes. I basically just moped, kicked rocks, pouted. Loved ones tried to cheer me up at the Thanksgiving table and I was like, "How can I possibly eat yams when all I can think about is that cliffhanger with some guy hanging out in some other dead guy's loft!?" Haha, just kidding, that last episode did not have a good cliffhanger. (Also just kidding about having loved ones.) Anyway! Welcome back, Vampire Diaries!

It was pretty great seeing all our favorite characters back in action. But do you hear that beep-beep-beeping noise? That's a garbage truck backing up to pick up last night's storylines, because yuck. Sorry, I don't mean to be the chocolate pudding in your guest bed, but I was pretty underwhelmed by this episode. Characters did stupid things for no reason, very little actually happened, and many story elements just flat-out didn't make sense. The problems were especially glaring in light of this season's recent hot streak. Maybe someone forgot to write the episode and the actors had to wing it? I dunno.

We began with Mystic Falls' newest warlock dad creeping around Elena's house at night while everyone was home. Because that is definitely the best time to break into someone's house to steal their trinkets. Definitely not when the house is empty all day long. We're six seconds into the episode and already it doesn't make sense.

This warlock dude was basically terrible at robbery, so of course he immediately woke up Elena and she was SCARED. But then I saw she'd been writing in her diary and I got scared that she'd start reading from it again. (Season 1 shout-out!)

But when she went into the hallway to investigate, it was just Alaric and Jenna being weirdos. It was like, yeah, we get it, you guys are boning. The scene went on forever, really trying to sell the humor of this awkward situation, and failing... which was awkward for me the viewer. This very unsexy scene played out for what seemed like ten minutes? PLENTY of time for the warlock to steal a bunch of Elena's personal items.

I just wanted to point out that Jenna was wearing the best piece of post-coital clothing a woman can possibly wear: the oversized man shirt. Ladies, maybe you can fill me in on how this works. I thought that you only put those on when you don't have access to your own clothes? Like when you stay the night at some rich yuppie's condo and your sequined cocktail gown is slung over the chaise lounge? JENNA LIVES HERE. Why is she traipsing around in an oversized man shirt? Sometimes it feels like I don't understand ANYTHING.

Elena was convinced that the creepy noises were just the totally unsexy sexual shenanigans next door, and promptly went back to bed. But then my question was, what kind of maniac lays down on her bed like this to go to sleep? Not even resting her head on the pillow at all? The lights are still on? WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?

The next morning, the Salvatore Bros. teamed up to lift away the Styrofoam door to Katherine's tomb. They were apparently still going off that fake tip from the murdered vampire nerd: That they can break the moonstone curse before Klaus carries out his sacrifice of Elena. That's right, most of this episode's plot was based on an incorrect piece of information. Buckle up!

Katherine looked super tired and very thirsty, and she was like, "Your plan to break the curse sounds good even though I am centuries old and should know better, but sure, I'll give you the moonstone if you get me out of here." Very shrewd.

But the boys ran into a snag when they ran their plan past Elena and she was like, "No," and they were like, "Why not?" and she was like "Because." Elena was the worst. I guess she had concerns about the safety of her family and decided that she WANTED Klaus to find her so that he wouldn't take it out on her loved ones. Even though he wouldn't have to do that if the Salvatore Bros. granted him the ability to walk in the sun. Which they won't do because that was an incorrect piece of information. So yeah, Elena was like, "I want to be the one who dies!" and I was definitely on her side.

Meanwhile, Bonnie actually went to school (LOL) and had a nice moment with Luka the hunky younger warlock. She seemed pretty stoked to be talking to another one of her kind (what?), and he taught her a new ability: She can increase her powers by channeling the powers of nature and—get this—OTHER witches.

Then he demonstrated this ability by channeling her powers and whipping up enough wind to blow everyone's homework all over the picnic area. Man, witches can be such jerks sometimes.

Bonnie seemed pretty happy, though.

'Sup, Rose? Rose was just tyin' her robe after a steamy night with Damon. I really hope they danced around the mansion in their underwear at least once.

So Elena went to Rose for help. For some reason Elena got it in her head that she should go see that nerdy vampire dude, and Rose was like, "Um, why do you need to talk to that guy?" And Elena said, "There's more to learn. We just have to find a way to learn it." It was a very brilliant argument from a grade-A genius. Rose was like, "Nah," because Rose is awesome.

THEN Elena tried to strong-arm her: "You owe me. One word from me and Damon and Stefan could've killed you for kidnapping me." Elena is awful. We've been over this.

Later, Tyler and Matt had a nice moment on the basketball court. Matt was pretty sorry about trying to get Tyler to murder him shortly before Tyler actually murdered that drunk chick. It was awkward, but I think we've all had this conversation at some point in our lives. I'm so glad these guys are able to put their differences behind them and come to an understanding. And you know what would really get their friendship back on track? A shirtless hug.

Oh, Caroline's back. Hey Caroline! In her brief interaction with Matt it was clear she still had feelings for him, but she was also taking a big interest in Tyler's condition. Turns out a full moon was quickly approaching. Frankly, I think she was just trying to get a shirtless hug out of one of them (or both!).

Over at the #1 Teen Detective Agency, Jeremy wanted to join in on the rest of the crew's plan to snatch the moonstone away from Katherine, but Damon was super mean to him. Poor Jeremy! Just kidding, Jeremy needs to sit down.

Meanwhile, on Elena and Rose's USELESS FIELD TRIP 2K10, they discovered the cold, staked body of that vampire nerd in his loft.

He left behind a pretty cool computer suite, though. R.I.P., vampire nerd.

Oh and also there was some sobbing girlfriend in his closet. Meet Alice, some lady who wanted to become a vampire and had a ton of 'tude about it.

Elena gave Alice a grilling about how to log into her boyfriend's email.

Elena: "Do you know your boyfriend's password?"
Alice: "Are you seriously asking me that right now? I just saw my boyfriend with a stake through his heart."
Elena: "I understand that. Do you know his password?" Me: "Elena, you are brain poison."

In case you were wondering, the password ended up being "Kristin Stewart." Barf.

Elsewhere, Tyler brought Caroline to the old Lockwood estate and into the old slave quarters, where there were very old chains and claw marks on the walls. "That's what this place was used for… full moons." But also, slavery.

Look what they found! Mason's diary! Uh oh, they might have to change this show's name to Werewolf Diaries!!! (DO NOT do that, producers.)

Meanwhile, Rose finally called out Elena about why she wants to contact Klaus so badly, and Elena owned up to it:

Here is Elena's reasoning: She felt that someone was DEFINITELY going to be killed by Klaus, and if she sacrificed herself she'd keep everyone else safe. But here is why Elena is a low-down dirty idiot: It's not just the doppelganger Klaus wants… he'd also have to sacrifice Caroline, Bonnie and Tyler. Right? I mean, didn't Katherine just tell her this like two days ago? So how exactly will her death keep her loved ones safe?

Or Maybe Elena simply doesn't consider those three people to be her loved ones? In which case Elena is garbage. Beep-beep-beep. The truck's a-comin'.

So then Jeremy decided he'd confront Katherine so that Bonnie wouldn't risk her health doing so. He pulled the old one-two, stake-then-magic-powder trick on her!

Jeremy momentarily disarmed Katherine, went into the tomb, and found the moonstone.

Unfortunately, he was too slow and she woke up and BIT HIM A TON.

Luckily, he threw the moonstone out of the tomb. Good thinking, Jeremy! Now if only this awful MacGuffin can be thrown down a well or something.

Then we learned why the warlock was stealing Elena's junk. It had to do with some kind of tracking spell that Elijah could use to keep tabs on her. Seriously, this was so boring and uneventful that I was considering not even mentioning it, but there was ONE hilarious thing about it:

Haha, that warlock is CROSS-EYED.

Tyler and Caroline had some research to do. Hey, did you check out Tyler's AWESOME computer?

Dude! Great wallpaper!

So obviously Mason's video diary was way better than Elena's or Stefan's diaries could ever hope to be.

It was pretty cool that Mason videotaped himself screaming into a camera for six hours straight. Very helpful. (That camera had great battery life, am I right?) But yeah, it definitely looks like turning into a werewolf sucks. Poor Tyler!

WARNING: HERE COMES THE EYE-ACTING OF THE MILLENNIUM!

Yeah. I told you so. This actually happened.

So Damon showed up and basically had to physically restrain Elena because her brain-damaged tendencies have started to become violent. But then Elijah showed up with some dudes and THIS happened:

Didn't it make you LOL when Rose bolted out of there? Rose wins. But get this: Once Elijah killed the other vampires, he left Elena and Damon alone.

Oh and then Bonnie tried to break the tomb's force field…

...by channeling Luka's powers without his knowledge. There's a term for what Bonnie did, and it's wizard rape.

This is the weirdest screen grab in history. Of course Bonnie's attempt at magic was a reprehensible failure, and Stefan ran into the tomb to save Jeremy—but instead got trapped himself. So wait a minute. Do I even need to ask? Vampires can ENTER the tomb then? It sort of seemed like earlier they couldn't, which is why Katherine felt safe from Klaus. This show!!!

So yeah, Stefan's trapped in the tomb with Katherine now. You know what's good storytelling? Invisible force fields, magic rocks, and a hundred thousand love triangles. Ugh, this episode is making me so cranky! I need some comfort food.

Ding-dong! Mashed potatoes are at the door.

Caroline was stoked to see Matt, and the poor guy seemed to really need her.

Damn werewolves! Werewolves have terrible timing.

Later, Elijah explained to the Warlock that he spared Elena and Damon to keep her "safe," which is so asinine it makes my head hurt. So he thinks it's better to not catch her and keep her safe himself? It's better to just leave it up to the Salvatores and allow them to hatch a plan in the interim? I don't understand this at all. The only thing that MIGHT make sense is if Elijah is somehow working against Klaus or whatever. I don't know. All I know is Elijah talked into the window for the whole conversation like a total weirdo.

Then Bonnie and Jeremy more or less broke it off. It was pretty sad.

Then Damon and Elena found out about Stefan getting locked behind the force field, and she threw a fit and he had to restrain her for like the fifth time this episode.

Stefan asked Damon to look after Elena for him. Fine, whatever, don't care.

Katherine was like, "That was the biggest mistake of your life, Stefan." But I DO NOT CARE about that love triangle. Elena is officially awful. Hopefully Katherine leaves the tomb and gets her own spin-off show. I think she's going to turn good anyway, or at least become "good" in the same way that Damon is.

Anyway, to sum things up, I'm really starting to worry about the youth of Mystic Falls, you guys! Here was an episode in which almost every human character attempted to die. I guess living there just really wears you down sometimes, you know?

Next week: Katherine and Stefan's shirtless hug!


Questions:

... What exactly IS Elijah's agenda?

... Are Bonnie and Jeremy dunzo?

...Why is Matt still a character?

... Where'd Rose go?

really good job. i LOVE your recaps. :)

i don't know if someone wrote it earlier, but katherine felt save in the tomb cause klaus wouldn't go into the tomb without being sure to get out. and that a vampire can walk into a tomb was also shown at the masquerade ball. the room was a tomb already and katherine walked in but couldn't get out.

Just wanted to say a few things. First I just love your reviews, I ended up reading all of them and I pretty much laughed all the way.
Then I'd like to answer to some of the things you didn't get.
1) I guess you've figured that out now, you wouldn't understand since you haven't seen the 1.14 or something but vampires can enter the tumb but can never get out of it. unless someone does a witchy thing on it, of course.
2) about Jenna's oversized shirt thing, I often find myself in the morning wanting to find a single piece of cloth to put on quickly (if I wanna cross the flat to go to the bathroom for example) and that would hide what's to hide just in case my brother or anyone just happened to be up. And well an oversized shirt is like the perfect thing for that, you put in on in like a second and you can go wonder in your place everywhere you like without ending up naked in front of one of your siblings. By the way Alaric should have been as clever as Jenna for this, poor Elena.

What Katherine said was that Klaus would never dare to enter because he knows you cant leave , so she\'l be the safest psychotic **** in town ,remember..
NOTE - in ep 8 rose tells Elijah that Katherine was never in the tomb in 1864 , which means Elijah knows about the tomb and its curse and obviously Klaus does too.

"Vampires can ENTER the tomb then? It sort of seemed like earlier they couldn't, which is why Katherine felt safe from Klaus. This show!!!" --- Actually, I don't recall anyone saying that the vampires can't enter the tomb. They are able to enter, unable to leave/exit the tomb. That's the reason Katherine felt safe if Klaus was to enter the tomb to kill her then he would never be able to leave.

Eye-acting scared me on TV, even worse in that still. What the hell is IS doing? Overact much? Jeez!

It’s all too much, too soon. Everything has been so amazing up until now which is a pretty great achievement. There is no way they could keep it up forever.
It’s like they were flying full speed ahead with Masquerade and Plan B but they couldn’t control the story and everything skidded way off course.
The Sacrifice was a disaster!
1. Again, Elena knows a witch and werewolf are needed to break the curse (the reason all her friends and family are in danger?) but she thinks just sacrificing herself will help?
2. Witch breaks into Elena’s house to steal items to be used in a later spell to find her? Ah, she’s right there buddy, you are IN HER HOUSE!
3. Once she is found, it’s all just a test to make sure she is “safe”? huh? Stefan and Damon already proved they would die to save her when they fought with Elijah the first time.
4. I can live with Jeremy/Bonnie but I feel like they rushed it too much, didn’t give it time to breathe. It feels contrived like they were desperate to get Jeremy involved and increase the stakes for him. Why does it have to be about a girl? How about the whole “family legacy” deal, or pair him up with Tyler instead of Caroline?
5. Instead of using these episodes to dig deeper and deeper into this moonstone business, why not draw it out to a season long arc while also focusing on other characters that are being ignored like Matt, Jenna, and Alaric?
6. What about school? I understand they allude to it once in a while, but they haven’t been in an actual class in a very long time. I don’t think fans would complain much to slowing down a tad. Remember the simplicity of “Unpleasentville”?
7. No complaints about the main love triangle. All combinations work for me at least temporally and as long as it’s within character.
I know there have been minor inconsistencies before (1864 anyone?), but I forgive them. But I’m still very surprised with the events of The Sacrifice. I think the audience is smarter then this. #1-#4 above do not seem like organic events, they seem like glaring plot devices but make little sense with everything we know so far.
But hey, I don’t write for television, so who I am to talk? I’m obsessed with the show anyway and will continue to watch every week and hope for the best. I also know Kevin and Julie are good at what they do. I have no doubt they will turn it around and get back on track soon.

great article! the only wrong thing was about the tomb: vampires can enter but generally they don't because they can't get out, so they would be trapped. The rest was spot on.

I have stopped watching the show after episode 5 (season 2). First season was, in my opinion, good. But second season is failing in love triangle stories, werewolves, conventions and I'm bored to watch it. This review is really funny and convinces me I was right to stop.

I hope the show stays on the air and this writer keeps doing these reviews. I have never watched an episode of this but find myself really amused by all the ridiculous screen-grabs, overacting, and hilarious "plot" points. Also, all the chicks are really hot.

Ok, first off Jeremy is an idiot. He tried to incapacitate a 400 year old vampire with some fairy dust and poorly placed stake? Second Elena is an idiot. How can you not miss the fact that your big a@@ picture frame and crap loads of your stuff is now missing from your room? Also, future note...if I ever find out i'm a warlock and meet another witch/warlock and have a superhero team up session....I will start dropping houses on people's head. Blowing away your homework is super lame. The "I need Mylanta" face on daddy warlock was hilarious.

Ok.. Firstly... Why is everyone so cranked and snippy with Price about the rules of the tomb? It's a melodramatic, teen, vampire, soap opera, chill out.

Now for the questions...

Eliah's agenda... Keep Elena alive to sacrafice her at the right moment?

Bonnie and Jeremy... I would hope Jeremy would move on to someone with an actual personality.

Matt.... Who doesn't love mashed potatoes? At this point, he's there to add depth and drama for Caroline.

Rose.... Siberia?

@ Naritchie... Doesn't Elena want KLAUS to kill her? Wouldn't that entail a quadruple sacrifice?

@ everyone else... Fine, the tomb is one way, but am I dumb for missing that or is THAT WHOLE IDEA VERY DUMB? Is there going to be a note on the styrofoam door that says "YO VAMPIRES THERE'S A FORCE FIELD HERE"? Katherine said she is safe in there, so I assumed she said that because she's smart, but it turns out she's assuming a lot of things that aren't true. Like, if no sane vampire would enter, that makes Stefan insane right? Also since no rules seem to apply to Elijah or Klaus, how do we know they can't enter? Also don't they have VERY POWERFUL WITCHES at their disposal? You know what? You're right, I'm definitely dumb for trying to make sense of this show. I am going to go make sense of a sandwich now.

If Elena dies then Caroline, Bonnie and Tyler are useless because in order for the spell to work Klaus needs the blood of the doppelganger (Elena). What's he gonna do with a witch, a werewolf and a vampire if he has no doppelganger? So technically Caroline, Bonnie and Tyler would all be safe. Except, of course, if Klaus decided to go on a rampage and kill them all out of revenge.

Another hilarious recap! Keep em coming Price. BTW, nice eye acting shot! LOL! Okay, so it's been established that vampires won't enter the tomb because it's a one way ticket. And Katherine assumes that she's safe because of it. BUT... knowing what we know so far about the Originals... Elijah didn't die when Damon staked him, he can walk in the sun without a ring and compel other vampires... Who's to say that Klaus won't be exempt from the tomb curse, that it wont have the same affect on him as it does other vampires? Just a thought...
Reply

First off your recap was more entertaining and amusing than I think this show has every been. Honestly, besides my addiction to all things vampire I don't know why I'm still watching this show. You're so right about the plot holes. And why didn't they just get a tranq gun and tranq Katherine and send Alaric in to get the moonstone. Come on people science can be our friend too. And Bonnie get real, Jeremy is waaaaaaay hotter than warlock boy. Actually I don't think warlock boy is hot at all sooooooo.......

I really think they played the Katherine card too soon. As for Elijah it seems to me he wants to keep Elena from Klaus. He's been sure to kill anyone who knows about her, besides those who will 'protect her with their lives'.

No way Bonnie and Jeremy are done, soon as she finds out warlock boy is playing her she'll be crying on Jeremy's shoulder.

Matt is still a character because someone has to be human and in the dark.

I think Bonnie should give Jeremy a chance! The poor boy needs someone. And Stefan shouldn't have went in the tomb, because no matter how many times Katherine bit Jeremy he would still be alive because of his ring. Jeez smh -_-

LOL, you make some fair points. BUT I must tell you, they have never claimed that vampires can not enter the tomb. However, obviously a vampire would not WANT to enter because they would be trapped. Kat simply stated that she would be the "safest psychotic b*tch in town" because no vampire would ever want to enter the tomb.

lol some of this episode WAS pretty ridiculous, but I loved it! Plz stop picking on Elena, she's not that bad. Hey, if Katherine does become 'good', maybe her and Damnon and Stefan and Elena can double date lmao. THAT would be interesting. I sure as hell hope that preview of next week's show was a damn dream sequence cuz if Stefan hooks up with Katherine in that tomb, I'm gonna be very angry with that manpire.

Somewhat amusing, though the vampire spell allows the vampires to enter the tomb but it doesn't allow them to leave. As for Elena deciding to go the suicidal route despite hearing from Katherine that Klaus would kill her family members just for spite, I also found that quite ridiculous.

This was the best piece of writing I've seen here for a LONG TIME, Peterson... until you seem to become as brain-damaged as Elena and forgot how the tomb spell work. Vampires could ALWAYS enter the tomb - the spell ALWAYS work that way. Hell, if it wasn't the case, they wouldn't have been able to trap Katherine during the Masquerade Ball. Katherine felt safe 'cuz, as NUMEROUS people probably already mentioned here, no other vampires would be stupid enough to get him or herself trap with her for eternity. Seriously, you sounded so dumb here, I really hoped Ron Simmons showed up in between your paragraphs to go all "DAMN!" up in here (... do "Vampires Diaries" fans get WWE references?... Whatever!) Anyway, good article overall (love the caption), but trust yourself next time - if you feel like you're about to write something TREMENDOUSLY IDIOTIC, don't write it down.

Katherine felt safe in the tomb because if Klauss went in, he would be trapped as well. That is why Stefan and Damon kept their distance. I do think that Elena was being a bit dumb last night. Sacrifice her self to break the curse on the stone. If I am right, that would allow countless vampires to walk in the daylight without rings and basically massacre humanity without any one to stop them. I like how Damon is slowly becoming a dark hero in the show. Now he has to choose whether to save Stefan or to keep Elena for himself. My guess is in the end he wills save Stefan so he can help battle Klauss.

Last episode, Katherine said she's safe because no sane vampire is going into a tomb he can't get out of. That's the gist - a vampire can theoretically get in there and kill her - and then what? He/she gets trapped in turn.

The Stephan/Elena/Damon triangle is the best thing on Tv since Angel/Buffy/Spike. All I want is for Damon to finally get Elena, but I also love this "building up" that's been going on since they met for the first time. If nothing actually happens between them though, I will lose it and go nuts..

I think Vampire Diaries is fantastic, but I also love reading your reviews! Just discovered them last week and they are hilarious and so spot-on! Well done pointing out the plot-flaw: what good will it do for Elena to sacrifice herself if Caroline and Tyler etc. still have to die? I think it's good that Stefen went into the tomb with Katherine, as he has a dark side and she'll probably bring it out in him, which will make him more interesting. Also, the writers need to stop teasing us and get on with the love affair between Damon and Elena. Most of us are sitting there watching V.D. and wishing that Damon would look at us that way, and we are ready to experience it vicariously. Let's hope it happens soon. I want to see what Damon would be like if he actually got what he wanted. It would be a nice change from the exact same basic relationship plot each week. Also, I really don't care about Elijah or the old ones or whatever they're called. I think that plot line is boring so far. Bonnie and Jeremy have chemistry so their star-crossed love is a nice touch -- I bet they're done. Matt, dunno. He and Jenna should hook up. And Rose? Maybe she went back to drama school to brush up on her British voice. I'm from the UK and I don't care if that actress has lived in England before and American producers think she sounds authentic -- her accent is terrible :)

LOL this episode was so painful to watch. And I LOLed big time when Rose ran away... she's smart! Though the thing about the tomb is they can come in, but cannot come out, that's why Katherine was safe bc Klaus wouldn't enter bc he wasn't going to be able to get out. I did miss your review the past weeks, at least we had a better cliffhanger now.. LOL!

uhhgg... the reason why Katherine said that she was safe was because she knew that Klaus wouldn't risk being trapped in that tomb just to kill her...it had nothign to do with the fact that vampires couldn't enter...

Last five minutes were okay, and something finally happened, but the reasoning for Elena and Elijah were completely insane. I mean, writers get paid to come up with such a cop out? But on the post-coital shirt thing, I think I can explain that (although I seriously have never thrown one on, I'm usually already out the door by then :P) - if you do feel the urge to wander about the house where there are underaged kids, throwing on a long shirt prevents you from having to put on underwear. Which saves time, I guess? Or else you would be needing panties underneath your jeans, and a shirt, and that are two items more if you really, really need to go to the bathroom. Or... get cornflakes? Again, seriously?

I would say that you almost impressed me with your very entertaining re-cap...although I was amazed to learn that you actually weren't aware about the "tomb thing". Man that was just a downer because that piece of information is very crucial to the whole story, no vampire would dare go in because they know they would be trap forever and maybe eventually die of hunger. Good review though...kudos to you.

Elijah never showed up "with" those other guys, Elijah showed up after them, and they worked for Cody whom Rose called. That may be why she ran when Elijah showed up and ripped out their hearts or she thought he might kill her just because, for other past grudges.

Elijah's agenda was clearly stated, for now, that he wants Elena to be kept safe which is why he let Damon live, because he will protect her with his life. Basically he is playing them to his advantage. I hope some of the characters get more interesting storylines and scenes. Also be nice to get lots more background info on the originals and maybe some flash backs.

I think Stephen wanted to be in the tomb or else he wouldn't dismiss it to Damon by saying "Don't worry about it I can look after myself" and the whole episode Elana included Damon in every "I won't let the people I love die for me" when she said it the first time in the kitchen she looked right at Damon and you could see the shock on his face. Also why didn't Damon tell Stephen of the phone call from Rose or anything about what happened when they meet back up? It will be interesting

Elijah needed Elena to be safe until klaus came, if she killed herself or became a vampire or died they couldn't sacrifice her. Damon and Stefan would stop her from doing anything like that
