The Vampire Diaries "She's Come Undone" Review: Enhanced Intervention

The Vampire Diaries S04E21: "She's Come Undone"

So, all it took to get Elena’s humanity back on track was a hearty dose of horror. Could the same be said of the series as a whole?

If the remainder of the season follows in the footsteps of “She’s Come Undone,” the answer to that question will be yes. This was the best installment in many weeks—throughout the Dark Elena arc, I’d say it’s only matched by the unbridled moxie of “Because the Night”—in no small part because it deployed horror elements more effectively than the show has all season.

Right from the start, this was bound to be a macabre hour, given Stefan and Damon’s latest strategy for tapping into Elena’s boarded-up human core. If their attempts to elicit positive emotions simply bounced off her armor, they’d be forced to resort to the Costanza Method and do the opposite.

Hence, Plan Z: Hit Elena with every torment they could think of short of tickle torture. Solitary confinement, starvation, sunlight-scalding, even inviting Katherine over for some mild vivisecting.

Elena, no slouch in the agony-inflicting department herself these days, parried with a smattering of psychological warfare. Playing head games about her former affections (or lack thereof) for each of the brothers was routine—if obligatory—stuff. A massively greater mindfuck was hurling herself headlong into the sunbeams to prove that they would never let her be truly harmed. Going full-blown flammable was a ballsy bit of gamesmanship, the sort of “holy shit!” moment The Vampire Diaries has always made its bones on.

But Elena’s vitamin D overdose wasn’t the grandest such moment this week. That honor belongs to Damon snapping Matt’s neck, a fake-out just plausible enough to pack a genuine wallop. Those “holy shit!” escapades land deepest when they’re backed up by solid characterization. Damon wouldn’t hesitate to swap Matt’s life for Elena’s. And Matt, after lamenting his go-nowhere existence, would absolutely sacrifice himself to save Elena (as she had done for him, inciting this entire ordeal). Coupled with the unsettling mood the episode had already established—case in creepy point, Elena’s feral posture and blood-red eyes a few minutes earlier—it made me forget about the protection-ring loophole just long enough to deliver a gut punch.

The same heightened pulse propelled Caroline’s runner (literally) as Silas bombarded her from all angles. While I haven’t been a fan of the trend of regularly turning Caroline into the damsel in distress, as a pure piece of thriller storytelling, all her sequences were aces—from her flight out of the woods, all jarring shifts in pacing and shot composition, to the semi-standoff with Liz, easily the most expendable remaining character who it would still hurt to lose. And lose her we almost did; the episode did a nice job of leveraging one death-twist-reversal to make me believe it wouldn’t bust out a second one moments later.

This whole nightmare dogged Caroline because Silas meant to send a message to Bonnie, who was off scheming against him and setting up clandestine diner rendezvous. I’m still not totally sure what Bonnie’s goal is, nor am I sure how sure of it I’m supposed to be. She’s not letting anyone in because of the old “the less you know the safer you’ll be” trope, which is TV-speak for “we’re saving a huge reveal for the finale!” It mainly feels like one more way to keep Bonnie at arm’s length from the rest of the group, a perennial weakness of the show.

And yet, at least her latest step moved toward making whatever she has planned for Silas and the veil more interesting, using the technique that usually makes things more interesting: involving Katherine. Their bargain may (read: will) turn out to be at least one kind of ruse, but for the moment, she’s promised to make Katherine invulnerable. The same Katherine who Elena has vowed to make dead. That could set up a conflict rich enough to make all the kooky magical tombstone talk worth it.




NOTES & QUOTES

– It was good of Rebekah to acknowledge her role in toppling these dominoes, what with her attempted murder of her new best study-buddy once upon a time. I buy that Matt could motivate her to seek a more moral existence, but I do find it hard to square with her continued ringing endorsement of Elena’s remaining a remorseless monster.

– Obviously it was doomed to fail, but nevertheless I’m glad we got to see Caroline making one last-ditch effort to reach Elena through kindness before handing the keys to Team Torture. Refusing to give up on her friends, or let her friends give up on themselves, is at the heart of Caroline’s character.

– NB: The above is especially true if she can work flashcards and energy bars into the mix. “She likes projects.”

– “I tried to kill you, Caroline. I’m not exactly BFF material anymore.”

– “You know the rules. Bad girls don’t get nice jewelry.”

– Damon on rage: “I tend to pull that out of people.”

– “All hands on deck! That’s the motto around here, right?” “We don’t have a motto.”

– “Please check surroundings for safety.” Hah, not bad, show. (Even if Jurassic Park did that gag better.)

– “You’re the definition of damaged goods.”

– “My emotions are fine. I love Elena. I despise you.”

Can somebody please explain to me why Elena needed a blanket? Aren't vampires supposed to be immune to weather?

We don't need a jerky Elena and a jerky Katherine on the same show. Too much annoying Nina Dobrev--the motivations aren't different enough for it to play. Heck, even the hair isn't different enough. They are interchangeably awful making bad decisions. I am not interested in any more Katherine.

It still gets me that Silas appeared to Caroline as Klaus. He looked into her mind and saw Klaus, so he turned into him because he would get to her.
He could have turned into Tyler and said he could come back since Klaus was gone.
But he saw Klaus in her mind.

And in Pictures of You when Klaus gave Tyler 5 seconds to run--why was he there at the mansion? He came to see Caroline. But Tyler was there already.

And yes! LOVE that Klaus is more on Caroline's mind than Tyler.
But then again, would ANY woman choose Tyler over Klaus? ;)

I wondered that too. Why was Klaus at the mansion in the first place? Did he know Caroline was there? And, if he went there to see Caroline, how come he didn't go in after scaring off Tyler? Was it just that he didn't want to go through the masochistic act of seeing Caroline all loved-up on her special dance with someone else?

I think he went there to see Caroline because he's like, "This thing you peasants call 'romance' is finally working," but then he heard Tyler in there and either: 1) didn't want to hurt Caroline's heart or make her hate him again by hurting Tyler, or 2) didn't want to see Tyler and Caroline together because, as said, it was masochistic. I think it was quite lovely of him to just let Tyler go and not flaunt his mercy in Caroline's face.

Pretty sure in "Pictures of You" that was also Silas-as-Tyler, hence why he simply disappeared when the camera panned back from behind the pillar. Everyone had a moment seeing Silas that episode.

I didn't think it was Silas - Silas has always shown up as others for some other purpose (like getting the cure, getting to Bonnie, etc.) and Tyler didn't mention a word of that to Caroline. Plus Tyler seemed genuinely scared when he ran into Klaus - Silas wouldn't have been scared.

Agreed that it makes no sense why Klaus was at the mansion, though. But I'm happy for each and every scene with Klaus in it, so I'm not complaining.

That episode Silas seemed more into screwing with them... he appeared to Bonnie as Jeremy, the brothers as each other (I know he stabbed them but it was more emotionally manipulative since his conversation points were about Elena). As for Caroline, it can be about learning weaknesses and not just torture. He also seemed too confident when talking to Klaus. Anyway, I thought it was pretty clear that was Silas and not Tyler, but then I came here and others didn't see anything off about it.

It is probably not going to happen, but it would be so awesome, if Cathrine would turn into a Mikael and be the main protagonist for the next season. We haven't really seen anything of her yet. So far she is sold way under her worth.
It would also allow to move Rebecca to New Orleans, because most of their inner conflicts go in the same way. Please do this, show!

They can't kill Katherine. She's the only way that Nina Dobrev can prove she has more acting skills than just playing wet blanket Elena.

If they kill Katherine,there's no point to watching the show anymore.I may have watched every episode this season,but I wasn't as interested in it until she came back.spices up the show.The Stelena/Delena triangle is just a girl in love with two guys unless Katherine sticks around and gets involved.

The echo of my scream of horror can still be heard after the horrible-no-good-unlogical thing that happened a couple of weeks ago. You know, the Thing we thought wouldn't happen, but still talked about. And last week's reminder of it (really? pregnancy!?) made it worse, but after this episode I feel that I might be able to forgive TVD for the unnatural turn it has taken lately. Might. And it was nice seeing Klaus again, even though it only was part of Silas' mindgame. Caroline's reaction to his words showed her feelings towards him, which she can't deny any longer. Now I dont know if I'm going to give up on TVD after this season, it has hurt me now more than ever. I don't think I'm going to follow The Originals, even though it has two of my favourite characters in it (+ Rebekah, who has grown on me immensely this season). Don't get me started on Hayley ... She was a hollow person on TVD already, but she definitely doesn't belong in the new show. And that Thing still doesn't make sense. Thanks for reading my angry Klaroline-shipper-fangirl comment without rolling your eyes. See you next week (maybe)!

And yes, this episode made me a little more likely to watch TVD after this season. But after the horrible-no-good-unlogical-thing-that-shall-not-be-named happened, I'm still not gonna watch the Originals.

Yes, exactly my point! It doesn't make sense to me ... Klaus and Hayley have nothing in common, and there was no chemistry between them.

Oh, right.. Sorry, my brain doesn't always function as well as it should. Can you go somwhere and complain? Say that you want a new one because there is something wrong with the one you got?

Anyway, back to the point. Yes I remember that awesome, super long comment thread where we all wished we could have Klaus's babies. And yes, this plot twist made me very annoyed b/c I just want to forget what happend a few episodes and move on, but no. Now we have to keep hearing about it through the rest of the show or something.. :(

How are you btw? Haven't seen you around latley :)

I've been busy doing nothing. :) Sorry to hear about your brain, but sometimes brains just stop working for no good reason. Mine has been useless for some time now, so I can't help you I'm afraid. ;)

About Klaus: I always thought that he was old fashioned, a romantic, with eyes only for Caroline. And if he would get distracted from her, his evil master plans and hunt for power, it would be for someone more ... experienced, mature. And smart. Not Hayley, in other words.

I thoroughly enjoyed this review. Thoroughly. You have a way of covering all the meatier bits of an episode and expounding upon them, forcing the commenters to do the same. Kudos. :)

-I'm inclined to agree with the horror element of things. It has been a while since we've really felt a genuine horror bit and they upped the ante on it this episode and it was really great.
-I actually enjoyed this episode even though I felt like I probably shouldn't have. Clearly this episode was meant to lay the groundwork for everything that will transpire in the penultimate and ultimate episode of the season. It's main tasks was to move the pieces around and set things in motion. When you know that it can be a wee bit unfulfilling, and yet this episode also was solid enough to be good. I think things were handled in a great way, so it made what should have been a slow and perhaps dull episode somehow engaging. I may have to say that the bulk of that fell on Matt and Rebekah.
- Surely I wasn't the only one damn near gleeful over the prospect of Elena being tortured. I assure you, this isn't like me. I'm only borderline sadistic when it comes to a fictional world. In a non fictional world I'm all puppies, rainbows, and unicorns or something. But I was stoked about Elena being tortured. And by the Salvatore brothers no less. Nothing says sibling bonding like torturing the girl you love. Hearts them. I felt like they went easy on her though. hell, you know they did, when even she said as much. It just had me thinking that even though Lexie has been long gone her presence and her impact is always there. I would be smiling at that idea if not for my still working to forget how they ruined the memory of her character earlier this season. What I loved even more was that Evilena was battling all of that with straight up mind warfare. There is nothing I like more than good ole fashion psychological warfare. It's true. Snapping necks and beating up folks is all fine and well and even fun to watch sometimes, but mind games take skill. Stretches the thinking muscles and what not. Psychological warfare for the win. All.The. Time.
- I'm not really enthused about Evilena being gone. I liked Evilena. Evilena was kinda fun, in that she wasn't regular Elena. I would have been down for them just letting her not give a shizz. Have at it, for crying out loud. Be awesome. I felt like Evilena gave everyone a run for their money and the show would have been a lot better if they eventually got to a point where they gave up on her returning to boring Elena and just let her be. I know Nina Dobrev's acting skills are often questioned, and those who question them have their merits. I just, I don't know, I think she's done a pretty decent job at making these distinctions between her characters. She's had some of her finest moments in this season, I can admit. It reminds me of an article I read a few weeks back about American actors and foreign actors, especially with the rise in foreign actors playing Americans and taking over on American based shows etc. An interesting read. One of the biggest things is that, foreign actors, those from England and Wales in particular are almost always classically trained. They go to school for the arts, they always get their start in theater. It's believed that that is what gives them the edge. Our actors used to go to Julliard, or performing arts schools, we used to do theater and the like, some of our greats have that kind of background, but now, now it's different. There is a almost a war on arts and other cultural programs in schooling, we're constantly struggling to save them. No one is trained anymore. Sometimes you can't afford to train in them, and sometimes here at least it isn't a noble enough profession to get into. Anyway, my point being, I don't think this is necessarily a bad thing all the time. I think it's something that for better and for worst is evolving. I think in most cases it isn't so much some are bad and some are good, so much as actors and their selective skills are different. I think Nina Dobrev does alright with what she's given. The way I see it, this is towards the beginning of what will be on her acting reel. For that, the girl does alright. I rather enjoyed that Evilena wasn't a copycat of Katherine, because she could have easily been that. I'm going to miss seeing her go.
-I want my Salvatore brothers to exist in a world that doesn't solely revolve around Elena. In fact, I want all the characters to.
-I still maintain that the most interesting and pivotal relationship of this series will forever be the one between the Salvatore bros. This is a love story, yes, but not the one everyone thinks about. This to me is a love story about two brothers and their complicated love/hate relationship with one another. This show can be so rich in the family dynamic and love that is oh so important, and the fact that they reduce it down to a love triangle can be frustrating, but perhaps that is just me seeing something deeper than what's there. Certainly ain't the first time I've done that. There were moments, so many great moments, but for me, I'd like to point a subtle but fantastic ones. Those that involved the two brothers trying to get through to Elena. I found it so fitting that Ripper Stefan couldn't let that side come out of him again to save Elena. He was responsible for opening the curtains, enough to singe. There was no malice behind it.Say what you will about the bros and their roles, but I love that they stayed true to their respective roles even in this endeavor. Stefan was reluctantly going along on doing the bare minimum because he can't allow himself to be the bad guy. Then Damon, was going full speed ahead, because he knows that he has to be the bad guy because no else would. Stefan whispered and reasoned, pleaded. Damon got his hands dirty, he snapped necks and made snide comments and showed no hesitation in doing what needed to be done. And then Stefan was the one to talk Elena through when her humanity returned and Damon was left standing there watching from the sidelines and you could just see the wheels turning and him wondering...Elena's words from previous torturing coming back and hitting. Damon is a man of action. Stefan is a man of words. I love the contrast in the two brothers, always being compared for better and for worse with neither of them fully coming to grips that one isn't better than the other. They're just different. And they need those differences to be a balanced entity. And again, I'm rambling like a fool.
-I've always been mostly indifferent to Matt, but I loved him in this episode. For the first time in a while I felt like they were remembering to ground these kids in reality a bit. I loved that they took the time to focus on the fact that poor, human Matt is in danger of not graduating because he's behind in his studies. What with an impending apocalypse upon them,burying bodies, and killing vampires and what not. It made me chuckle, as did Caroline's surprise, because seriously, how are these kids able to graduate when they only show up to school for dances and to occasionally raid Alaric's liquor drawer in the History room? I loved that he brought in very real problems and fears that teens his age are typically facing. He doesn't know what he's doing or where he's going. He's worried about being broke and not being able to go to college. He's worried about scholarships. He doesn't know what he wants to do with his life. He feels like he's stuck. And then he voiced such fears with a 1000 year old hot vampire who has seen things and lived through things, and yet in her own way, feels just as stuck as he does, and it made for compelling scenes with all those parallels and symmetry. Plus, Claire Holt she wear her hair in a ponytail all of the time because she looked stunning. It was one of those moments where I genuinely enjoyed Rebekah. Her apologies and making amends was much needed and done well, calling back to the finale. Just as Matt's actions in the forest called back to the finale/premiere. I thought that was clever writing on their part.
-Yeah the Matt thing didn't shock or surprise me because they showed some graduating pics before the episode that had him in it, I was pretty sure at this point they weren't getting rid of their token human just yet, I remembered that Damon had the ring (because at the time when Damon took it we all were wondering why they didn't just give to Matt, and honestly they didn't give us long enough time to react to his neck being snapped before we found out the truth. However, if you weren't one to pay attention to all the aforementioned things, than yeah, it was just plausible enough to be believable, because Damon is notoriously impulsive, has chalked Matt up as disposable long before he had an extra reason to be pissed because Elena died to save him, and all of the Matt focus previously would have gave one pause.
-I really loved the Caroline and Silas/Klaus scenes, because obviously Joseph Morgan is the be all end all of awesomeness personified. My crush on him has gotten pretty intense this year, I can't lie. Again they brought in all that psychological mindf**king that had me grinning like a Cheshire cat. Klaus and Caroline have great scenes. Even when Klaus is Silas. Plus I've been loving how Caroline is coming to grips with her twisted feelings she harbors for the Original bad boy. And for the first time in some time Caroline didn't get on my nerves in an episode. Kudos, because she's been borderline insufferable all season.
-when all fails, torture Caroline. Good times. Good times.
-So the whole Elena/Katherine hate thing. Part of me thinks that this is contrived and redundant. The other part of me feels like if this is done right, we may see something relatively interesting enough. Something that could possibly help them survive with The Originals gone. Because at this point, that's what the goal should be. We've spent so long falling in love with and being entertained by the Original characters that I can't wrap my head around that time and how TVD was before they stepped foot into the picture .They've carried the show for so long, along with the obvious and most times tiresome love triangle. So I hope to see some strong character development and evolution with their departure. There is room now to bring Bonnie back into the fold with the main characters, because even though I've enjoyed her more this season than I ever have before, it isn't lost on me that she still isn't nearly as great as she could and should be. She still is detached from the other characters. She's still on the cusp of being a potentially great character if they just WRITE for it dammit. I'm still hoping that her plans are leading up to something huge. I hope that there will be room for her to be a well rounded character, instead of this only present when it's convenient plot device, who is only half-assing, not even that, quarter-assing being dark or evil. Same goes for Matt and Caroline. and yeah...that can be a whole other thing. I'll stop while I'm ahead.
-There was a moment where I honestly believed that Sheriff Forbes was well on her way to meet her secret lesbian lover Mayor Lockwood on the other side. For realsies. If anyone is on the disposable list, than she is. I actually got a little sad when I thought she was really dead. That would have sucked a little.
And since I've rambled myself silly, I think I'm off to make a "It wasn't me, it was Silas!" t-shirt.

she’s promised to make Katherine invulnerable. The same Katherine who Elena has vowed to make dead. That could set up a conflict rich enough to make all the kooky magical tombstone talk worth it.

Yeah, I don't like this. This is way too easy and predictable. I hope they make something out of this that's more interesting than either Katherine becoming the new Sylas or Elena kills her. BTW, huge question mark here: Bonnie said Qetsiyah helped Sylas becoming truly immortal yet Elijah said till Elena in season 2 that no living creature can become truly immortal as there's always a loophole. Granted, Katherine just wants to survive and becoming Sylas immortal is probably better than 'normal' vampire. In the moment when Bonnie said she knew what Katherine wanted most I actually thought that she would try to resurrect Katherine's family but that seemed to go backwards instead of making progress with her character.

Aside from that, great episode! Katherine and Elena bickering was great especially at the touch where Katherine actually thought it was Elena's fault that Elijah ran to help Klaus build a new life, she can't accept the fact that Elijah chose his brother before herself. And she was definitely right about Elena, Elena may have had a hard life but she always had someone. After Katherine's family died, she had none and looking at Katherine's track record I bet she was alone a long time before she met Pearl, probably her only friend until Damon and Stefan.

Damon snapping Matt! That was awesome. I immediately knew that he had the ring, there was no way Matt was going to be killed this way. I actually think he's one of those characters that will actually survive as a human the entire show. Perhaps Caroline's mother too. Anyway, great performance on Damon's part since, as you said, everyone was aware how much Damon hated Matt for exististing in that car which is bullshit in my opinion but whatever.

Silas.. I don't know, this turning faces of others is a drag for some reason. It's like we expect him to be anyone so it's not a surprise anymore but I gather from the main character's point of view it's still scary. I really, really hope he has a larger end game then just loving suicide or world domination. Kudos though for the rule that he can't hide from Bonnie because she has seen his true face, I liked that. It made sense.

wait..so if Katherine made Damon and Stefan and then Caroline, and Damon made Elena a vampire, wouldn't Elena killing Katherine be the same as killing all the others and herself? Or does this whole killing the maker kills the bloodline-thing not work anymore?
The only way for Elena to kill Kat without killing herself would be making Kat mortal first. and that would just be a waste.

I know it's WAY late but Damon's blood made Caroline. That seems to have missed the writers on this show for some reason. Stefan was Caroline's mentor basically. They all are from Klaus' bloodline. So when they threaten to kill Klaus all the time I can't help but laugh their just committing suicide.

I have some things to say about lastnights episode...First of al, I will always root for the Salvatore brothers...I am not team Delena or Stelena..I am team Klaus and Caroline...anyway, I don't like it when people act like Damon is better then Stefan or anyone on the show. yes I know, people have opinions and they are to be respected, which I DO RESPECT OTHER PEOPLES OPINIONS...I am just saying that it's not called, Damon's Diaries. I have just had it with that part. I liked the whole episode. I liked how the brothers were trying to figure out a way to turn Elena's emotions back on and even though I don't think that torturing Elena was the way to go...The part when Katherine put her hand through Elena's chest made me smile and when Caroline was with fake Klaus, who I thought was actually Klaus for five minutes, made me smile. I liked how Elena was extremely honest with the guys and how she proved to them that she knew they would never actually let harm come to her. I got all sad when Elena thought that Matt was dead, because she looked so broken and torn...which amazed me was the fact that Nina could pull that off, when I don't actually think she can act all that well...proved me wrong(I just watched it for the second time) Then I realized that the chemistry between Elena and Damon is gone, IMO, and that they just seem like they are bored with eachother and that perhaps it is the end for Delena, which would hurt so many people and I feel the same about Stelena also. There was no chemistry between the characters, like there use to be...it's like someone pulled the plug and decided that the long ass drawn out triangle wasn't worth it anymore...I know I probably pissed some people off and I don't know what to say about it except that I have been watching the show from the start and there was more chemistry before Elena became a vampire, between her and both brothers, in the first 3 seasons. I know that Nina and Ian are together in real life, or atleast I think they still are, even if they are not, before they had major chemistry because of that, but now it's like they are tired of the roles they are playing and their characters are suffering. I know i am rambling, but i have all these thoughts and I am always worried that people are going to flip on me because I don't think the sun rises and sets on Damon..actually, I think that he is very annoying and smug. But I do love the Salvatore brothers and I do love Klaus and Elijah...I just love my men...And no offense, but I have been watching the show from the beginning and not all of Damon's motives have been about protecting Elena...She reminded him of Katherine, even when they first met. when she was walking along the road alone...He wanted to get into the tomb to "save" Katherine, which was founded out that she didn't need to be saved after all... Elena grew on him and he found himself wanting her after he found out that Katherine knew where he was and didn't care...but I am happy that Damon and Stefan used Matt to get Elena back to her semi normal self...okay Damon broke Matt's neck but Stefan held Elena back.....ANYWAY SORRY FOR THE RAMBLING..I WILL PROBABLY WRITE SOME MORE LATER...

I'm just thinking how the building up of the finale will go? With The Originals basically gone next season or at most visiting, they need a boogieman so I assume Silas will live after all? I feel that will happen since we need something for Season 5, haha.

By the way, how freaking hot was the Silas!Klaus and Caroline scene?! Not only from a Klaroline development perspective - finally getting a look at Caroline's true feelings! - but also just from a sheer "Holy crap, Joseph Morgan is one sexy beast" perspective. That man can back me up against a tree and whisper in my ear about ruffling my feathers any time, any place.

yup,... silas does not just copy the exterior,... he also copies the way they talk and behave and feel,... so my guess is '' I can not stop thinking about you '' is really in Klaus's heart ,... he is sex on legs in cool jackets,... watching the scene,... all I was thinking was,... nibble her earlobe,... damn it,... the sexual tension is awesome,... what do the actors do after they shoot their scenes ? << I wonder >>

So let me get this straight silas the almighty, can be anywhere , anyone it wants and he has problem locating bonnie … it's mystic falls man how hard can it be.

Also I really don't understand silas , I mean he threatens caroline and stakes her so she will find bonnie for him and when she wakes up intending to do just that, he catches her again with "by the way I need u to find bonnie in case I wasn't clear enough the first time I stabbed you " and then when she runs away from him again he keeps creeping up on her from behind, like hello! how do you expect to get anything done when you keep showing up like this, she was just gonna call her five minutes ago. chillax.
.
Also when Rebecca offered matt help till graduation was that really sincere, don't they graduate next episode? I mean that's not much of an offer if they are going to graduate in a few days unless she probably thinks matt probably not going to graduate because for that to happen he actually has to show up for actual classes which let's face hasn't happened in years so knowing that maybe she is sincere after all. Which begs the question how does graduation even a subject of conversation on this show, all of the cast is 90% vampires and I'm sorry but Elena in the beginning of the episode was the only one making sense , why do this character's even care about graduating and pretending to be human when they are clearly not. And matt has got to be the saddest character on vampire diaries, I really feel bad for this guy.

Also am I suppose to care about caroline's mother I think this episode was like the first appearance of her in season 4 and she's been known for being the worst sheriff this town has ever known and killing her would change absolutely nothing so again am I suppose to care.

Silas plan was never to make Caroline search for Bonnie. If he wanted someone to search, he could do it himself. But Bonnie's clearly not in Mystic Falls, and that makes it harder. Stabbing Caroline, then saving her, making her scared... All of this was just a plan to make Bonnie come for her aid, which she did. ;)

Ok I will admit this is the best episode we have had in a while, but honestly that isn't saying much considering the crap they have laid on this year. Lets just hope the last two are mind-blowing and they can end on a high note.
I don't really have much to say about this episode it was just a set up episode nothing shocking really happened, everyone already knew Elena would have her humanity back by the end of the season and this and ep. 22 were the last possible ones to do that since we know the finale is gonna be all about Silas.
I sorta wanted Sheriff Forbes to die, it would have made things more interesting. I would still be sad (for Caroline) if she died, but I really wanna give the characters a push out of Mystic Fall and I think the final parent figure and the last of the people that has their back, to help cover things up for them would have been a good push.
Honestly if they are still in Mystic Falls for season 5 there will be no point in watching the show, there isn't really anywhere to go.
Random thing that hit me though, all the founding families are dead accept for Dr. Fell, that is sorta depressing considering how many of them were around in season 1, this show has jus decimated this town, time to leave and risk the lives of some knew (and hopefully more interesting) people.

Great episode. I'm glad Elena FINALLY got her emotions turned on, because that whiny, bitchy crap she's been doing over the last few weeks has gotten annoying as hell. I loved that it was Matt that got her to turn back on her emotions (well Damon by "killing" Matt). I wasn't shocked that Damon killed Matt, (he has always made the comment that Matt is expendable), but I had forgotten about the ring so when he did it I kind of sat there stuck for a minute wondering how he would be brought back. Well done TVD well done! I didn't know how Elena was going to react when Damon did it, but damn if I didn't feel for her in the moment when she let it sink in that one of her lifelong friends was dead, and her other emotions started coming back.

The torture scenes were good, although I did agree with Elena that they were only going to go so far with what they did because of their feelings for her. But I did love her jumping in front of the window and letting the sun burn her. It was hilarious. As for her focusing all of her energy on killing Katherine...no just no. She can point the blame of the pitfalls of her life on Katherine if she wants to, Katherine has had a hand in making Elena's life completely miserable whether on purpose or just by default, but Katherine is not the ONLY one who should be blamed. Technically she didn't kill Jeremy, Silas did, Katherine just used him as a decoy to get the cure. But Elena also had a part in Jeremy's death from the moment they killed Kol and decided to go after the cure. They were all warned no one listened and now Jeremy is dead, I guess its easier to point the finger at Katherine instead of looking at herself, the Salvatores or her friends as the problem. As both Klaus and Rebecca have pointed out if they (the Originals) do anything bad its because they are all around bad people, but if Elena and her friends do the same thing it is because they are trying to protect people. Hypocrites.

Caroline's scenes with her mom were heartbreaking. I am glad Liz isn't dead cause that would have been too much. Also loved the scene between her and "Klaus". Stop with the games and either get those two together or let them go there separate ways. It feels like a waste if she continues to pine for Tyler, who honestly serves no purpose and should stay gone.

Overall a great episode and with only two more left it will be interesting to see how the rest of the season plays out. If the show keeps on pace with what they did tonight then I am expecting a finale of epic proportions.

I agree, that was a very powerful scene with some very solid acting from Candice Accola, I was all like "WTF! They killed off Caroline's mom?" and had already accepted the loss before she came back...a little bit disappointed, though - I had hoped her mothers death would have turned Caroline a bit darker and more determined, which would IMHO make the character more interesting.

You know, I was really surprised that I actually liked this episode quite a lot! After last week's total fiasco and to be honest, that's how I've been feeling for most of the season now, I wasn't a bit excited about it. But tvd proved me wrong. I really liked the episode. I noticed a lot less plot twist with characters I don't care about - no more cure talk, and the few Silas shots involved an actual loved character and her emotional torture, Caroline, so I enjoyed it - I had a 'holy shit!' moment, as you call it, which is typical tvd (which I'm grateful for) when Elena bursted into flames, not, however, with Matt's neck snap, I kind of saw the ring thing coming... But it was old tvd good, which made me really happy.
A couple of Katherine related notes: First of all, I get that Elena is so rightfully pissed and wants her dead and all, but she's been avoiding death and big bad vampires like Klaus for 500 years, so there is absolutely no way in hell I would ever buy that 8 month old vampire Elena will succed at killing her. So if that's the way tvd is gonna play it, on the finale or next season, you already know what I think.
Finally, Katherine killed Jeremy. WHY ON GOD'S GREEN EARTH would Bonnie team up with her? Even if she needs something from Katherine, why would she offer something in return? In order to make sense, I expect some serious double-crossing. (Fun fact: It may not look like it, but Katherine is my favorite character along with Caroline)

I agree that Elena seems no match for Katherine, which is why I'm surprised that they felt the need to make Kat even more of a potential threat with this invulnerability talk. That said, and not to be cheesy, but Elena is much stronger in one department and that's her love. Kat may be able to get over her family's slaughter, but we know Elena won't. Kat may be able to put herself in higher priority than revenge and run from a threat like Klaus, but we know Elena won't. That "won't back down" and "passion to the core" wild card element will no doubt give Elena some semblance of actual threat to Kat.

But I also agree that Bonnie teaming up with Katherine is just baffling. I don't know how she's managing it even as an act. She loved Jeremy almost as much as Elena did. A double-cross has got to be coming and my guess is that it's something particularly nasty. I think Kat will finally be spectacularly deceived and used in the manner she's accustomed to doing to others and that Bonnie & Elena will mend their fences over this mutual revenge scheme for Jeremy's sake. I guess having something like that in mind would be enough to drive Bonnie to put on the performance she probably is.

I know this is probably not gonna happen, because I'm pretty sure it's Damon who gets the cure in the books, but I would think a better twist would be Katherine getting the cure and it would totally effect the love triangle because Stefan will be to noble to kill Katherine or something and that will make Elena turn to Damon. I don't really care about the love triangle but I know they wanna make the cure effect it so that is my attempt to unite the two.

But if Katherine takes the cure, does only she turn into a human or her own bloodline? coz that would make things very interesting for the love triangle and all the others..

Sadly enough, my guess is they're gonna kill Katherine with the end of this plot. However, I do not believe for a second that ANYTHING tvd does ever again will have any resemblance to any of the books. Really, they stopped even thinking about those (luckily) a long time ago. Those books (specially those that come after the original four) are pure crap.

True, it would be horrible but plot-wise there's no reason to keep her alive. I love her, but they should've killed her in season 2. It's all they wanted to do for a season and a half and suddenly they just... didn't. I hate to say it, but it's time.
Flag
Oh I know lol, I only made it through the first one and skimmed the rest of the original series, refused to read the "new" ones altogether. But I don't want Katherine to die, they can't get rid of all their interesting characters, they just lost the originals they can't take Katherine too, that would be too much.
Flag
Yeah, I totally agree with you about both Elena-Bonnie and Elena having way more will power and love and stuff than Katherine, but Kat is physically 500+ years of vampirism stronger. That's what I meant, she shouldn't be able to kill her herself because she's no physical match to Kat whatsoever. I do agree about the rest. If someone else were to kill her, then yes. I'll even give you the SalvaBros, but Elena? Kat could kill her in her sleep...
Reply
Flag
Oh yeah, just physically - no contest. But what I mean by the advantage of will power is that Elena will do whatever she has to, even something Katherine-like in its trickiness. It doesn't have to be one-on-one combat. I'm sure there will be many elements involved in the upcoming attempts. For all we know Elena's about to go buy some wooden bullets or light Kat's latest foreclosure find on fire.

LOL I really wanna watch that.

I'm glad Elena's back and even happier that she's focusing on what we all knew she would since Jeremy's death: killing the vampire who, even more so than Klaus, has been the source of all her misery. Don't get me wrong. I'm a fan of Kat. I think she's one of the most interesting characters, and certainly villains, of the show. But she is definitely still a villain. Even with all of the excuses and logical motivations in the world what you get at the center is nothing but a self-centered survivalist who will throw anyone under the bus to save her own skin and doesn't mind a little extra cruelty on top for funsies. Her small doses of true feelings for a few of her targets along the way doesn't redeem her enough in my book to grant her preference over a character like Elena. Our protagonist deserves some vengeance.

Furthermore, like I talked about last episode, this "kill my enemy" arc will finally provide, hopefully, Elena with a goal and action of her own making. Something for her to drive and do as the lead character of this entire story. She needs some of her own motivations that aren't just wrapped up in trying to save someone she cares about or figure out which brother she loves most. I want more than anything to see this character break free and go after something. I want to be able to hone in on her and follow her around on a quest that she has taken up by her own idea and terms. I'm sure we'll still definitely get the so very old "we must stop Elena" threads from the other characters but at this point I'll just ignore it. Getting to see her make her own decisions is too precious to get sidetracked by the bickering of her "gang".

Not that I think Katherine will actually be killed. I don't think the writers are willing to let her go. She's too convenient to bring as a drama ante-up whenever the story's lagging. But I'm not sure that they'll make her all-powerful and invulnerable either. Katherine's vulnerability has been her one tiny saving grace, the thing that's allowed fans to feel for her even through all of the horrific things she's done. If she suddenly has no weaknesses and can just hang around all she likes making snappy comments and showing off her expensive wardrobe I fear she'll become merely an exaggerated form of Rebekah. No -- what I want -- is to see Elena do something like secretly seal her in a well and make it seem like she's just run off again. I don't mean another "tomb" arc, where she's visited and still part of the story. I mean a "completely forget about her for the next two years" kind of thing. Real punishment and fairly sick revenge but still with the potential for her to come out and play again.

Because something tells me Elena is even more dangerous with her passions. She is and was a character defined by her love, and who she loved more than anyone was her brother. You know what they say. Love makes you do crazy things.

Ok, many things happened in this episode.... Iloved it. Once again Matt is the hero, I really like that boy now. The real Elena is the best thing that could have happend to the show it was two much "I don't care" Elena. I really hope she comes back to Damon, he was willing to do everythong was necessary to get her back even when Stefan was feeling sorry for her, he loves her so much ! An finally, now it's SO obvious that Caroline feels somenthing for Klaus.

I was thinking that too, especially since they set up Damon doing that early in the episode. I figured it was foreshadowing. So while I never believed he had "really died", I'm still glad that it was really him and really happened. It means so much more for him to have actually risked that to pay Elena back for her sacrifice at the end of S3 than had it all been just a hallucination. And if she had come out of it and realized Matt was never really hurt I don't think it would have been strong enough to save her.

She needed a wake-up call, yes, but I think we all knew physical pain wasn't going to be the key to bringing her back. It's too cheap. That, and the logic is immensely flawed. "I'm going to torture you to make you want to be human and feel emotional pain as well?" "Fine! Uncle! Bring on the horror and grief of my dead family!" I thought it was a stupid stunt all along. More for "excitement" value than anything. And Elena's been at the mercy of these boys' strength and without freedom for far too long. But I did enjoy the Matt stunt and making her feel love and loss again. *That* was the key.

I really liked the scenes with Caroline this week, Candace was amazing in the emotional scene where she was trying to bring her mum back to life. Also, the show is doing a really good job of humanizing Rebecca, I really believed that she was sorry for all the things she'd done since she arrived and it seems like Matt is a big part of that. For a second I thought Elena turned her emotions back on because of Stefan and I was thinking oh great we're back to the one sided love triangle again but then they surprised me with the whole snapping Matt's neck which brought Elena back. Have to admit I'm gonna miss no emotions Elena she was pretty badass imo. Not liking Bonnie being so separate from the rest of the characters coz she's slowly becoming a way to solve certain problems before vanishing again. One of the better episodes.

Best thing in this episode was Elena actually telling the truth to everyone. First, she called Caroline "clingy", which I have been saying all season long. Her obsession with Tyler is seriously beyond annoying. Than she called Katherine "damaged goods" which was pretty badass. This caught my eye --

"I buy that Matt could motivate her to seek a more moral existence, but I do find it hard to square with her continued ringing endorsement of Elena’s remaining a remorseless monster." -- Rebekah hated emotion Elena because in turn Elena despised her. So, the way I see it, she only wanted her to remain emotionless because that's one less person (vampire) who hates her. I've said it again, and I'll say it again: This show has misguided place on blame. Yes Rebekah did play some part in Elena becoming a vampire. But she is trying to change, she is trying to be a better person. And she never would have done it if she didn't think her brother have died. EVERYONE should stop blaming and hating on Rebekah.

The only one to blame for the mess they are in is Katherine. So, I do agree with Elena, she must die. She is the one that brought Klaus into Mystic Falls. She is the one that killed Jeremy. She turned Caroline into a vampire. And she must pay!

Lastly, I do not care for the Silas storyline AT ALL. I wish it ends with the finale, but I'm afraid that won't happen and we have to suffer through another season of everyone talking about and being scared of and running away from Silas...... =.=

I'd also like to add that I don't like the direction they have taken with Bonnie. They are always keeping her away from the group, and bring her in whenever they need her to do a spell. Also, they should stop saying Elena and Bonnie are best friends, IT'S SIMPLY NOT TRUE! Caroline, and Matt have been better friends to Elena than Bonnie have ever been. This season we had Bonnie being controlled by Silas, and now she is working with Katherine to her own advantage? And she did not care to check up on Elena at all?

It's just hypocritical of Bonnie to constantly call Elena her best friend, and the next minute not care for her at all.

Yes, Katherine has brought a lot of bad things to MF but if it wasn't for her, there would be no pretty Salvatores to look at (well Zach, but come on, who cared about him?). They would've died in 1864. On the other hand, if there were no Salvatores, Elena's life would've been pretty much fine. And then there would be no show at all.. So we have Katherine to thank for our beloved TVD. Or something.. don't take this to seriously, just trying to defend the lovley Katerina Petrova. ;) Also, she is awesome.

Oh no I love Rebekah, I like her a hell of a lot more than Elena or almost everyone else (except for the obviously awesome people like Caroline, Klaus, and Elijah). Rebekah has been a little abandoned by the writers this season, they have made her cure obsession really annoying, but no more so than everyone else who has been chasing it for Elena.

Ha-ha. Well, every character on the show hates Rebekah for some reason. They treat her worse than Klaus, hell they treat her worse than Katherine. And I don't know know about the fans, but I love Rebekah and I hate how everyone dumps all of their issues and blames her for all the evil in the world. lol

It's just not right.

As for Katherine, she has always being the most slefish character on the show. And no, I will never forgive her for killing Jeremy< No matter how much you defend her. LOL

I truly hope, she dies. Than Elena will finally will be a mess, she won't have anything to live for. I'd like to see her develop more. No humanity Elena was somewhat fun, but no character development. < :(

I don't know I would say prior to this season Bonnie and Elena were best friends. In flashbacks (particularly from the first season) they made it seem like they didn't even really like Caroline, if anything I would say I've always found it odd the way they say Caroline and Elena have been best friends forever, they have all just known each other their entire lives. Bonnie isn't really being a bad friend she is fixing the mess those idiots made and frankly she has a right to keep a little distance between her and Elena at the moment. Bonnie has never really been anything other than the token witch that they call in when they need magic, this season has just made that more blatant, but it's nothing new.

Last episode Elena tried to KILL Bonnie. Twice. And back in season 1, I believe Bonnie's grandmother died because of Elena as well, or it had something to do with her. Bonnie has helped out Elena way more often then the other way around. Bonnie is used by EVERYONE for their convenience, and when they don't need her she is either off screen or away from the group in some way.

That's exactly why I said I hate the direction the show, and writers have taken with Bonnie. Personally, I've always liked her before she was only used for "write a spell", "get Bonnie to fix the mess of a storyline we are in" non-sense began. So I actually do agree with you, in some way or another.

Elena still had her humanity off when she tried to kill Bonnie (AND CAROLINE), if Caroline is willing to forgive her for what she did, than Bonnie should do the same. So you see, Caroline is actually a better friend to Elena than Bonnie is right now <<<

I'm not sure if I made myself clear? But that's what I mean by they should stop saying Bonnie is Elena's best friend. It's simply not true.< <

Caroline has always been a push over though, she is always willing to forgive people even for the worst things, that's her characters personality. Bonnie has always been the one that holds a little grudge. Like when she was gonna kill Damon and refused to help them get out of the cave, when she was sorta a bitch to Caroline after she first turned, and when she wouldn't see Elena after her mother was turned into a vampire to save Elena. I feel for Bonnie's character she is totally screwed over all the time and the writers must really hate her. I agree they need to do more with her character, she has so much more potential. Hell I wouldn't mind if they made the witches in the Originals series badass, than Bonnie could go meet up with them, but I don't think Bonnie would actually wanna be around Klaus.

Oh OK I get what you mean. that makes sense. Personally i think Bonnie has just reached her limit of being everyone's go to person for help and then when she needs it no one is around. Should she forgive Elena, maybe, but I wouldn't hold it against her if she did. Like she told Caroline last night, she isn't ready to accept what Elena did to her. It did just happen a short time ago. And when Elena tried to kill/attack Caroline and her mom, she was ready to kill Elena too. Now she is a little more understanding to what Elena is going through. Caroline wants things to be the way they used to, but unfortunately they're not and never will be again. She's the eternal optimist, looking for the best in everyone.
