The Vampire Diaries S03E14: "Dangerous Liaisons"


You know what they say: When one ship sinks, another ship rises to take its place. It's just the Circle of Ships. Hakuna-mashippa.

You guys, "Dangerous Liaisons" was one of those episodes The Vampire Diaries does so well: an absolutely pulse-pounding hour in which very little actually happens. Seriously! Write it out on paper: The Originals threw a party, Matt broke his hand, and then Damon got laid. Not much to it, right? Except this episode was everything. It was surprising, and heartfelt, and sad, and funny and as much of an emotional thrill ride as this show has ever produced. I had to pause the DVR and lay down on the floor a couple of times. It was so good!

And it all began in the world's weirdest hospital:

It was shortly after, I guess, Alaric resurrected on Elena's hardwood floors. Apparently Elena and Matt had brought him here to get a fresh transfusion of vampire blood? I didn't know, I was too transfixed by the excellent wall art: TWO framed portraits of, literally, Mystic Falls.

Anyway, in what would be the ONLY reminder that a psycho killer continues to roam the town, we got this ultra-creepy P.O.V. shot of the two of them being watched WITHIN the hospital:

Spooky, right? I half expected synth strings to play! Anyway, that was that for the psycho killer plotline. In real life a rampaging psycho killer would probably be the #1 thing you or I would think about, but in Mystic Falls it comes in at like #8. Poor psycho killer. Better luck next time.

Out in the parking lot (Elena and Matt arrived separately?) Elena thought she'd backed into somebody with her car.

At first I thought she'd run over some vagrant or, like, Tiki's Grandad or something, but nope!

Oh, it was Rebekah! So wait, did Rebekah get hit by the car then? I don't know, all I know is, she was MAD about Elena stabbing her before homecoming. Fair enough. Fortunately for Elena, Mama Original had declared a no-killing-humans rule and Elijah swooped in to enforce it.

Elijah's such a hero. I hope Elena keeps that in mind in the near future!

Anyway, back at Elena's joint, she was enjoying a morning bicker session with the Salvatore bros when the doorbell rang. She'd gotten an invitation!

I mean, honestly. ANOTHER formal event where there is guaranteed to be mayhem? Elena probably gets more of these invitations than credit card solicitations. Just place it directly in the shredder!

I LOL'd at this. It's a SAME DAY invitation for a black tie formal BALL. Seriously, Mikaelson Family? I loved the personal note Esther wrote for Elena:

Meanwhile at Klaus' pad, his family was hard at work getting their in-home makeovers from an army of mentally incapacitated servants.

Honestly, the Originals might be nice to LOOK at, but I'm guessing that living room smells awful. They are from even before the dark ages. Don't tell me they've already adopted our modern habit of daily showers.

There was a charming moment when Esther took Klaus aside and nagged him about bringing a lady to the ball.

Moms, am I right? Just when you think you murdered them and lugged around their coffin for a thousand years they just show right back up and nag nag nag. To Esther's credit though, it was exactly the kind of motivation he needed to finally make his move.

What was cool was that Klaus included a fancy dress with the invitation. That's just good manners!

Unfortunately Caroline did NOT seem that enthused. It probably had to do with the round of voicemail tag she'd been playing with Tyler, who was off somewhere learning to be a hybrid and leaving voicemails to his girlfriend about her dead father. Boyfriend stuff, basically.

After another late afternoon bickering session in which Stefan and Damon fought over whether the ball was a trick or not, and whether Elena should be allowed to attend, and if so, with whom, suddenly it was balltime and Damon was shmoozing with the Mayor.

And that's when Elena walked in wearing THIS gown, which I guess she already owned?

All I know is, Elena was NOT getting that shrug back. This girl had hungry eyes for high fashion.

Anyway, in a moment that is basically THIS ENTIRE SERIES encapsulated into three seconds, the brothers both attempted to escort Elena into the party (where she was already present, but...).

It's cool that this show is now just filming scenes explicitly for use in YouTube fan videos! there's a new clip for you, teens! Get to work!

Someone who was NOT having a good time was Caroline, who was still back at her house trying to find something she can wear to the ball.

That's when she decided to make the right choice and show up to become a part of this episode's BEST storyline.

RELUCTANTLY, but still. These two were the best, simply the best. -Tina Turner

But WHOOPS! It was time for an elaborate waltz rife with romantic intrigue! And dance they did!

It was cool how each coupling got a few seconds of romantic sparkle just before they had to separate out and match up with other people.

A moment happened right here when I very nearly fell off the couch (which I'd been sitting on the edge of for the entire episode). Caroline quickly shut Klaus down when he attempted to express condolences about her father, so instead he went on to compliment how she looked and how good of a dancer she was. When she casually replied that she had experience with ballroom dancing because she's Miss Mystic Falls, he just replied quietly, "I know." You guyssss!!! How did those two words mean so much?? How is KLAUS my favorite character all of a sudden? How did this awful monster become a romantic hero? Oh I know why: Caroline. She's just that amazing. And Klaus. And Caroline. And Klaus. And Caroline. Hold on, do I need to start a dozen Tumblrs now? Isn't that the law?

Meanwhile, snooze:

But meanwhile, YES:

Rebekah remains awesome, but wasn't it slightly strange how weird she got when Klaus was dancing with Caroline? That's your brother, lady. Relax. But I loved when she was instantly won over by Damon paying her a compliment. Poor girl.

Speaking of poor girls, out on the lawn Elena was having an unsettling conversation with Stefan. First of all, she needed his help to somehow distract Damon in order to visit Esther alone (which the over-protective Damon wouldn't allow). But it got super gross when Elena complimented Stefan for having given her freedom to make her own decisions when they were together. Um, you mean all those terrible decisions you made, Elena? And what about the time when Stefan was following you around like a maniac. Or how he murdered dozens of people in cold blood?

This was definitely an episode where my slowly mounting respect for Elena suddenly started circling the drain. Ol' Bad Brains was BACK!

Stefan, while admitting he was jealous of Damon and Elena kissing, made basically NO effort to get back in good with Elena but she was pretending like he had. It was really pretty remarkable. Without him apologizing or making any move toward righting his wrongs, Elena seemed eager to forgive and forget. Ugh.

Anyway, after Stefan "murdered" Damon, Elena crept upstairs and confronted Esther who was busily burning sage in order to sound proof their meeting. Or something. I think we all know the REAL reason she was burning it.

Oh, and remember that time Ghost Vicki attempted to murder Elena because the Original Witch told her to? Elena was not very upset about it! In fact, barely seemed to care. I mean, I guess it's understandable, it happened, what, three weeks ago? It was a distant memory. So anyway, as Esther explained, Klaus did indeed murder her back in the day, but her witch bestie preserved her body in that casket all these years while she attempted to cross back over.

It turned out that the previous episode's finale was a lie: Esther did NOT want peace within the family, she wanted to undo the evil she'd created in the world. Specifically, she wanted to murder her own children. Yikes! I mean, sure, many of them are mass murderers, but still, that's intense!

Anyway, I don't know if I trust a witch who lights candles like this:

The plot to kill her children involved spiking the party's champagne with Elena's blood and then bonding all of the Originals together. The only reason to bond them together was so that if you kill one of them the rest will die. That's just being efficient. Anyway, didn't have to ask Elena twice:

Things were definitely looking bad for Elijah, but it was probably his fault for trusting Elena in the first place.

Oh look who ELSE was invited to the ball:

It was just straight-up charming how Klaus attempted to talk to Caroline all night. She couldn't have been less interested, but it didn't really stop him.

It never ceased to be touching how whenever Caroline shut Klaus down in a manner that would get ANYBODY else straight-up murdered, he kept his cool and even seemed to consider everything she was saying.

We all knew Caroline would have nothing but a good influence on Klaus, but these scenes (during which, it's worth repeating, Caroline was NOT into him) actually showed him becoming human right before our eyes. Like he was realizing that if he wants good things in life he actually has to earn them, and even better, it seemed like he was willing to do just that.

In another of the night's best plotlines, Rebekah decided she'd get some tangential revenge on Elena by inviting Matt to the ball as her date and then murdering him during the party. She'd even enlisted her dickish prettyboy brother Kol to do the honors once she'd lured Matt outside. But then he pulled a classic Matt move: He was nice to her. Just really nice.

And once again, Rebekah stopped being a one thousand year old vampire and started being the thing she most wanted to be: An ordinary high school girl wearing the quarterback's letterman jacket. It's was just an utterly disarming scene, a perfect distillation of this show's balance between epic supernatural saga and ordinary teen drama. So yeah, obviously Rebekah decided not to have Matt killed after all and I MIGHT have teared up a little. Who knows? Nobody will ever know now.

So just before the grand toast, Elijah attempted to pick Elena's brain about what they'd discussed.

This was a huge moment of betrayal in that Elijah had done a ton of good for Elena over the past few months and she didn't so much as flinch in contributing to his potential demise. Because suddenly everybody was drinking slightly bloody pink champagne!

This was straight cold-blooded of Elena, right up there with the time she stabbed Rebekah after gaining her trust. I don't know, is Elena kind of a shark now? Seriously, maybe she and the current Stefan ARE meant to be together. They're both homicidal psychopaths.

On the opposite end of homicidal psychopath spectrum, Caroline was still being a good sport during all of Klaus' best efforts to woo her.

It was especially amusing when she wasn't impressed by his priceless paintings because he'd stolen them (same with her bracelet). But she WAS impressed by something else in his office:

Now. OKAY. Klaus DRAWS. I have to say, any other show with any other actor, and this would've been cheesy as heck. But no, Klaus' sketches were just so charming. And then he confided in her that one of his drawings hangs in the Hermitage Museum! WHAT?

But then things got awkward when Caroline just directly asked him to un-sire her boyfriend Tyler. When Klaus didn't seem thrilled about that subject, she went all Dr. Phil on him.

It had a lot to do with the fact that he sires hybrids because he's afraid nobody will ever love him. She basically shoved a big spoonful of Truth down his throat, and this time he'd had enough.

To his credit, he didn't raise his voice at her, he just told her to scram. For a second there it seemed like the romance was off. On the other hand, Caroline was right about everything and he probably already knew it.

Elsewhere Damon found out about Elena's secret meeting with Esther and he was VERY mad about it.

It was a bit of a heartbreaking scene, except that Damon genuinely was an overprotective jerk toward Elena throughout the episode. It's not like they were even officially dating or anything, he was just sort of a nightmare to her ever since getting some mouth action a few days prior. Now, obviously I think SHE herself was a nightmare so fine. But when he said "I love you" and she said "That's the problem," it was hard to miss the pain in his eyes. You know? I'm not an android, I feel things too. And in that tiny moment I was on Damon's side.

Unfortunately for Kol, he hadn't heeded his sister's wishes and continued to carry out his murder plans against Matt.

And that's when Damon swooped in to save him by throwing Kol off the balcony!

As if that weren't enough, Damon then jumped down on top of him and started windmill punching him!

I mean, here I thought Originals were super powerful, but I guess not? They're definitely no match for a spurned Salvatore. Anyway, he kind of made a scene:

But then he did this bad-ass walk away from everyone that suggested he'd regained some of the swagger he lost after Season 1.

Yay, Old Damon was back! I hope he doesn't go murdering another Lexi or compel-rapin' anymore Carolines, but he's welcome to dance to Depeche Mode covers in his underwear any time!

So then back at Caroline's house she returned home to continue her game of phone tag with Tyler. That's when she found yet another gift-wrapped velvet box on her bed. Rolling her eyes, expecting another piece of stolen jewelry, she instead found something far more priceless.

He'd appreciated her candor after all, and drew a picture of her with that horse from his driveway!

And this time it definitely seemed like Caroline was finally warming up to the idea of gazing into a one thousand year-old vampire's eyes for the rest of eternity. I mean, who wouldn't?

Back at Klaus' pad, Esther was putting the finishing touches on her binding spell, and she'd enlisted the one sibling who was more than willing to die for the cause.

And then she did this cool thing where she sliced Finn's palm (UGH, that's not the cool part, I hate that so much) and he bled onto a family tree, the trails of blood systematically blotting out his siblings' names. It was extremely cool.

And then the thing BURST INTO FLAMES. Now all she has to do is murder Finn and they'll all drop dead! So, just to throw this out there, she claimed it would kill the Original vampires, but are we so sure it won't also kill the vampires spawned by the Originals (i.e. all the rest of them)? I mean, if Esther is so hell-bent on cleansing the earth of her own mistakes, then doesn't it stand to reason that other vampires could get wiped out also? I don't know. I don't have all the answers, not this time or any time.

So yeah, to conclude the very UGH plotline, Stefan was being a real cold jerk to Elena STILL, but now he'd added petty jealousy to the mix.

And then they were back on the porch having the same conversation they've had for what's felt like dozens of times already. Elena wants Stefan to try and be nice again. Stefan wants Elena to go suck a lemon. Even worse, Stefan was kind of whiny about the whole thing?

The grossest part was the Stefan made it about himself and what a world of hurt he was experiencing because of his decision to shatter Elena's heart into a million pieces, a process that could've been stopped any number of times along the way. And so then Elena took this as a cue to, I guess, apologize?

Not that it worked. Stefan was in a real dramatic mood and he claimed that if he were to start "feeling" again, all he'd feel was "pain."

And then he ditched her! But honestly, that's perfect. Merry Christmas, Elena. Bye, you guys. Who cares.

THIS was what I cared about:

After the incident with Matt's broken hand (for which he hilariously admitted he didn't have health insurance), Rebekah attempted to apologize and Matt was understandably wary.

It was the right kind of sad because (A) Matt was right, nothing good could come of him chillin' with anyone from that family, but also (B) it makes me feel so sad whenever Rebekah attempts to make good and gets rejected.

Luckily, rejection was the theme of the night.

And Damon had a pretty good solution for post-ball blues.

CUT TO:

They finally made their s'mores! This was an incredible climax, so to speak. And dirty! Did you realize how dirty this scene was? Torn clothes and O-faces and all that. But it was great! I'm not even gloating about the fact that the Damon-Elena thing is now officially circling the drain, I'm genuinely into Damon and Rebekah as a pair. They have a certain rapport, you know? I mean, I would've preferred it if she could've worn the quarterback's letterman jacket a little longer, but this is a pretty good consolation prize if you ask me.

But to the Delena fans out there currently nursing a heartbreak, keep your chin up. These ARE grownups, and grownups do occasionally have one-night-stands before settling down with their soulmates. Or, you know, sometimes they marry their one-night-stands. Either way. Anything is possible! And that's what makes this show so magical.

Okay bye.

 

QUESTIONS:

... Do you approve of the Caroline and Klaus coupling?

... Are you mad at Esther now?

... Now that the Original siblings are bonded, did Damon just have a five-way?

... Are Bonnie and Abby still passed out in the cave?

Caroline was awesome as ever in this episode. As for her and Klaus - to be honest I'm not entirely sure that Klaus is honestly after her and not hatching some other nefarious plan. I don't trust that guy.



BTW, was I the only one who laughed till she cried when Elena came clumping into the ball in that dress like a docker? Graceful entry it wasn't. LOL!

I do like the idea of Klaus and Caroline but... didn't he try to kill her in the ritual at the end of Season 2? Also, he's the sire of her boyfriend. Klaus also killed Jenna whom I actually kind of liked in the series and who seemed like an actual person.



I actually love Ester after she did this though I was appalled when Elijah would die as well, I have a thing for Elijah. I'm kind of sad for Kol because I wanted him to be the new super villian, Klaus is getting less and less evil so I need a new villian to obsess over.



A five way?! Man... wow, I did not think about that until now, that'd be kind of disguisting, here you are at home and your reading a book or whatever the originals were doing and then you start feeling what "Rebekah's feeling" or rather, doing (or perhaps what's being done to her if you get what I mean). And in this situation, Rebekah is their SISTER!



Wow, I just only now realized that I do not recall Bonnie and Abby in the episode... it's kind of sad how their ancestor is all powerful and stuff but they can't seem to hold a candle to their ancestor, power wise.

Amazing recap.... Klaus and Caroline are my new obsession. But why on Earth would you put those drawings here...don't get me wrong...they are hilarious... but it kinda makes the "seducing" part seem like a joke...=)))

This was an awesome episode full of great surprises!



I do like Klaus and Caroline together, though I like her with Tyler too!



I like Esther, and at least she can use magic without passing out!



Put's a new meaning into having fun with your five friends, if you know what I mean ;)



Probably, these descendants from Ancient Witches sure don't hold up well.

I think Elena can only be but so loyal to Elijah given that he did go back on his word about letting them kill Klaus before he could complete the hybrid ceremony. While Elijah had a justifiable excuse, his actions have now resulted in them all being marked for death.

Two things worth mentioning:



- the Dark Ages are a historical period encapsulated between the 5th and the 15th century AD... so, technically speaking, the Mikaelson family were right-smacked in the middle of it when they turned blood-suckers... just sayin'.



- one thing worth mentioning about Ester Mikaelson: even though she has passed away about a century ago, this Viking witch manages to speak AND write flawless English, right down to her impeccable writing... Seriously, Sweden's education system ain't no joke!



- Finally... you have many talents, Mr. Peterson, but, sincerely, drawing ain't one of them.

AWESOME recap, as always. I should never read them at work because too much lol.



But no offense I think you totally misread Stefan's motives in that last porch scene with Elena. By a wide margin. Remember how Stef was pretty much suicidal back when he bit Amber in Miss Mystic Falls? He bit ONE GIRL - didn't even kill her - and he wanted to die.



Now let's remember the wide range and high quantity of atrocities he has committed since joining up with Klaus, as RippahStef. The "pain" he refers to feeling if he lets himself care is not just about Elena, it's about all of THAT. Elena is just the tip of the iceberg. This is about Stefan being an incurable empath who would probably be on suicide watch FOR ALL TIME if he let himself feel again right now. It's his curse, as Emily Bennett pointed out to him when he was first turned.



And no, there is no way he could have stopped that process along the way because a) he joined Klaus to save Damon's ass, b) he was under compulsion from 3x05 to 3x09. And every spare moment he gets he has been pushing Elena away because he genuinely believes that a) he does not deserve her b) he cannot give her what she wants - recall Elena's speech to him in 2x21 about wanting to grow up and have babies and do all those normal human things. Well timed, right?



So my question is: what exactly is selfish about all of that? Sorry for the rant, but I feel like Stefan gets the short end of the stick from fans and it kind of sucks. He's not perfect, but he's still the most selfless character in the show. Am I the only one that totally understands his headspace right now?? It's no great mystery...

Regretfully I al getting the feeling I have with a lot of tv shows at this point: after a few seasons the regular characters are loved and known by the audience and written out with so much depth and effort that writers tend to stick with them far too long to keep it fresh and interesting.

So I hope the Originals go down or at least far away from Mystic Falls fast now, they've stayed too long already. Voting for quicker and more drastic changes in the storylines !

Amen to that. I tired of the Originals long since and can't wait to see them gone. Although, having said that, and just because I have a contrary nature, I actually got involved in them in this episode where they've bored me to tears previously. I don't think it will last, mind you. I'll no doubt be back to hating them next week.

I <3 klaroline!! There's always something compelling about a redeemable bad boy. He's always had a reason for doing what he did and Caroline was right, seems its to do with his fear of being alone.

I'm not mad at Esther, more like had a light bulb moment. She's a witch so I guess she's quite attuned to nature and it's balances and it's quite believable that she would want to 'fix' her mistake. However, I don't believe it will be that straightforward. The spell may also affect Elena since the doppelgnger was created out of all of this, wasn't she?

Was there a scene where it was mentioned that Elijah and klaus fought over the original doppelgnger?! I like Elena and Elijah's chemistry and they're making Damon and Stefan unlikeable at the moment. Elejah? Elina?! Lol.

Great review as always Price! Looking forward to the next one!

In the previous ep, when all the bros were having awkward dinner, Elijah and Klaus discussed Tatia, the original doppleganger. She wouldn't choose between them, so Mommy Original used her blood to make them vampires. Yum!

oh my, it really was the best episode EVER and it gave us 2 new favourite pairings - klaus+ caroline AND damon+rebekah. unfortunately, both pairings have very few chances for success (we should remember that it's a teen drama), but oh my, they're HOT!!!

I like the Caroline Klaus coupling, but I also loved Caroline with Tyler! So I don't know what to think!

Also, I'm ssoooo MAD at Esther! What the hell! What's done is done! There are like a million vampires, this isn't gonna do anything, except maybe give her "worst mother of they year" award.

I'm mad at Esther, for her needlessly drawn out plan. If the kids are bonded, you want to kill them all and Finn is standing there with his hand out (literally), why not off him immediately? What's Step 2, place the Origs in a pool with ill-tempered sea bass? It's called takin' care of business, you 1000 year old viking witch. Get it DONE and quit yer bitchin.



As to the Predator sketch, it was so funny I had to show my hubby - which required me to also summarize the plot of this episode to give it context and well, let's just say this is a conversation I really never thought I'd have at age 37. Yeah.

Doesn't she need an Original killing weapon to do that? Although the one that killed Mikel was supposed to THE ONE, this show always finds new weapons. That said, if it's possible to find a new Original killing weapon, why sacrifice all her babies?

I laughed when Matt said he didn't have health insurance because I immediately thought about his fake twitter feed and how nothing good ever happens to him. He's basically an orphan who eats scraps at The Grill, where he may also be living.



I'm torn on the Klaus/ Caroline pairing because honestly Klaus has been a raging maniac for months, now just because he draws ponies and seems a little less awful it seems easy to root for him. Let's all support getting Elijah some action instead.



Are Bonnie and Abby still passed out in the cave? One can only hope.

Caroline and Klaus could be cute. She will be against the whole . . . "kill all the originals" plot now. I am not mad at Esther. I am still mad at Elijah for betraying Elena at the last minute in the ceremony that turned Klaus into a hybrid! He betrayed her, he could do it again! Ew on the 5 way, I don't think so. NOOO, in the hospital scene with Matt and Elena, didn't they say that Bonnie and her mom were at the hospital too? Or at least for sure they said they were alright. I guess you were so bored with that scene you missed that! And I didn't think about them coming in separate cars from Elena's house??!! Weird. Who is Matt going to end up with? Klaus wants him with Elena, lol. Thanks AGAIN for the great reivew, Price! I look forward to these each week and the great laugh I will have from them!

Caroline and Klaus... could be interesting. They look good together and they have some chemistry.



Not mad at Esther but definitely wondering if she isn't the most evil character on the show. It's one thing to try to kill your kids but it's another thing to get one of the kids your killing to help.



Damon's 5 way was hot and here's hoping that it will piss of Elena enough to figure out how she feels and start going after him.



Bonnie and her mom are taking a break to get liposuction from eating all the snickers.

Elena and Katherine are merging into the same person. Once this episode ended i had to ask myself, was that really ELENA?? I never disliked her more than in this episode : she's a callous, backstabbing b*tch to Damon and Elijah (the only 2 guys who actually care about protecting her), and ignores the fact that two of her best friends are attending the ball with evil Originals.oh right and let's not forget about Bonnie, passed out in a cave somewhere (??).. Elena probably didn't even notice her absence in her rush to meet with the evil witch who tried to kill her once and would still profit from her death... and to top it all off she desperately throws herself at the ex who's stomped all over her heart and shows no remorse whatsoever.... yeah. i'm just gonna believe it was Katherine. Except that even Katherine is too good for that kind of behavior!!!

Caroline is awesome and Klaus is coming around... They could be great together.

I don't really care about Esther. The bigger plotlines always take too long to develop for me to actually care about them.

Wouldn't it be a six-way? Five siblings + Damon?

Right, Bonnie... Yes she's defenitely still passed out in the cave. I love how Esther credits Bonnie for bringing her back but isn't gratefull enough to actually invite her to the party.

Ever since Klaus gave Caroline his blood, I have loved him. I was like "They are SO getting together". I really hope Matt hooks up with Rebekah. Not a fan of Esther because I have ALWAYS loved Elijah, and now I love Klaus DON'T TAKE THEM FROM ME!!! And when are they going to bring Meredith Fell(aka.

LOL i loved the drawings; they were hilarious! I also loved the screen cap with Elena saying,"You treated me so good n' so right." She's such an idiot seriously. And Klaus has totally become OUR favorite character too!



-100% all for it despite the fact that I happen to like Tyler

-Who isn't? At least she's not as despicable as the main lady from The Event. That lady drove me nuts.

Hilarious recap (the Predator drawing -ROFL).

Not sure about Caroline and Klaus, but they DO look good together. Hate the writers for making me feel sorry for Klaus. Damn them!!!!

Couldn't Esther leave Elijah out? I love him. And good question, will the blood kill all vamps?

HA! A five way!! ... Yeah probably ewwww.

Probably. (It sucks how they don't give Bonnie a real role)

yeah, stabbing your own siblings because of disagreement, compelling Stefan to turn of his emotions so Stefan would be crazy and so on, and so on ... Stefan is totally way worse :p not. plus i forgot something, klaus wanted to kill Caroline as well right? ..

You're trying to word it to make it sound like they're real humans in real life. "Stabbing your own siblings" and "Klaus wanted to kill Caroline". His so-called "siblings" are just as bad if not worse than Klaus!! And he didn't "stab" them he "daggered" them putting them into a semi-permanent comatose state. They're VAMPIRES, not humans in real life. You make it sound like Klaus is a deranged serial killer human in real life. He didn't want to KILL Caroline, he wanted her bit so he could heal her (maybe?). They're already dead!

Oh yeah I guess I forgot about that. Still, vampires have to be extra understanding about that stuff to avoid being total hypocrites. Klaus was bad and still is, but his loneliness has driven him to reveal more of his humanity in part due to his role as of late in Caroline's life. He's turning around meanwhile Stefan has been running a muck wreaking havoc in Elena's life in all kinds of ways. I get where you're coming from but let's let it play out and give the guy a break for now. :)

I am so laughing at you right now Jordan lol. His name is not mikael mikaelson, but his children carry the surname mikaelson because they are...ta-da....son(s) of Mikael. Just like the surnames Baker and Smith come from occupations, like being a baker or a blacksmith. My own, Foreaker...is a rendition of fouracer..which means my ancestor lived on four acres of land way back in the day. Maybe you should have a little history lesson before posting. I think I'm going to laugh at you now bahahaha!

In Iceland, that's how names are still done today. Niklaus Mikaelsson or Rebekah Esthersdottir would be their names in Icelandic. An interesting system as it is both easier and more difficult to trace houses in history. Easier because it's at once obvious who their parent was, however it is much harder to trace one house through all of history as there is no family name passed down.

I love the idea of Caroline and Klaus coupling up! I don't want the Originals to die! And I love that Damon finally got a reality check - and that Stefan & Elena are back on track <3

This was an awesome episode full of great surprises!



I do like Klaus and Caroline together, though I like her with Tyler too!



I like Esther, and at least she can use magic without passing out!



Put's a new meaning into having fun with your five friends, if you know what I mean ;)



Probably, these descendants from Ancient Witches sure don't hold up well.

Where's The Secret Circle Recap :(

Wow, Vampire Diaries leaves me breathless once again. I don't know but there's something about the Originals that's just so eerie when they're together, it's like they're slightly incestual yet they don't do anything on screen. I hope people start fan-vidding them, 'cause they're awesome.



Loved the moment where Damon realized that his feelings for Elena were actually starting to become a liability, just the facial expression in that exact moment said more than any words could ever say (you say it best, dun dun, when you say nothing at all, etc etc)



Stefan is becoming less and less awesome, he's going back to boring, probably because of these interactions with Elena that suck. He's the best when he's a bitch but he's the worst when he's a whiny bitch.



And to answer your question about Esther, yes I'm mad at her but not for the reason one would think. I'm mad at her because so far she has been a big disappointment. Here I was waiting for something big and actionfilled, something spectacular. But she turned out to be so "grey", she doesn't stand out at all. I was hoping she would be even more badass than Klaus and Elijah together, either against Klaus or with him, but nah.

ANSWERS:



1)...Not really, but...(maybe in a future...who knows)



2)...Totally, and I thought Dina Lohan was the worst mama ever, she it's a saint compared to Esther, but I am more mad with Elena (what a stabbeing bitch she must be )

3)...In one word LMAO XD!!!!!!!!! (I think he's so drunk that he would'n mind about that, anyway they all are so atractive that I'm pretty sure he would'n mind even if he wasen't drunk XD! J/K J/K J/K [Of course he would ']

4)...They must be really tired after eating all those snickers! o.O

<3 Vampire Diaries

Hi there, I've been following your TVD reviews for a while now and you always crack me up! Great job!



So here's my 2 cents:

1. Klausoline, yes, the best! Sure, he used to be the big bad for a while, but he's gotten much more human and I guess.. people change? Some people have complained that the writers should pick their bad guys and stick with them, but I think that this show is trying to show us that there is no black and white, just different shades of grey.

2. Not really; I would have been mad if she'd really come back just to "be a family again", cause that'd just be booooring. It's much more interesting this way, because I'm sure there's much more to come yet.

3. hahaha... What's most disturbing about that thought is that it probably wouldn't be the first time for some of the siblings...

4. Who?



Also, I want to congratulate Matt on his backbone. We always tend to think "Aww, look at poor Matt, being just such a clueless, nice guy." (or at least I do), but he has repeatedly said that none of them should have to deal with all this supernatural craziness and he's apparently the only one of them who's actually trying to stay out of this mess, while still being a good friend.



And lastly, are they all finished with high school and unemployed by now? And has Alaric quit his job because there are no students left to teach because, well, they're all dead? It's a little confusing.

I'm interested to see where a Caroline and Klaus thing can go. There is a real problem with that though, since moms bonded the her kids in an attempt to kill her kids. We may not get a chance to see where it could go. A five-way, LOL!! I just want Damon happy, without killing innocent women. Elena sucks!!! Stefan will probably almost kill her again and she'll still take him back. Girl's weak when it comes to him. I hope the Original kids catch on since I don't want to loose Elijah or Rebekah at this point. Due to Caroline, I don't want to loose Klaus for that matter. The previews looked like they know something's up, so here's hoping.

One more thing I meant to bring up, did no one else laugh when Elijah announced at the beginning of the ball that whenever his Mom gets them all together, they start the evening with a dance, a centuries old waltz.....yet she's been dead for 1000 years. I guess I missed the chapter in my history book where Dark Age Native Americans regularly held formal balls and waltzed...

Why doesn't it bother anyone that the whole gang knew the dance perfectly!!! I get that Caroline knew from her pageantry, but Matt? and the other random town people!?

I didn't have any trouble with Mom speaking modern english when she died a few hundred years before old english turned into middle english, but i was a little bugged when her handwriting was revealed to be a cursive that couldn't be more than 400 years old.

YES!!!!!!!...yes!!...probaly, it wouldn't surprise me and I don't think it'd be a first for him...no, they went on to find more glorious things...like a tomb full off milky ways or three muskateers or something. They're over the snickers (tummy ache and all)

Freedom 90'? Omg...

See Price, your genius shines through in the little things...

The episode really did feel like a thrilling ride, but not much at all happened, and I just realized it when you said so. We are all so privileged that at the same time you sound like a die hard fan with a touch of seventeen magazine; you also do have a critical eye for the details and the plot lines. So tnx!

And just curious, anyone else see something between Elena and Elijah, it kinda started back when she undaggered him? Maybe she should ditch the Salvatore brothers. Though I will always love Damon, I know that things are never going to be simple if Elena finally chooses him because of Stefan.

An interesting thought!

You know, this episode made me actually start liking Klaus. I started seeing hints of humanity when he was talking to Mikael, and now this episode almost confirmed it for me. Now I don't want him to die. Though he will only be humanlike if he has Caroline, so hopefully that storyline continues. It's fun to watch.

- I ship Klaroline with all my heart

- Yes, she can't kill them its rude

- HAHAHAHAHA

- Nope, Elena said they are fine at the beginning of the episode

Wow everyone is so heartless towards Elena. She went out with Stefan for a year and he gave up everything to protect her and Damon from Klaus so yeah if she wasn't trying her best to help this person that she loves she would be awful. And Damon going after his brothers girl or ex girl is pretty bad. Come on Stefan's in this mess because he saved his brother and Damon thanks him by hitting on his girlfriend while hes gone. Not to mention how creepy controlling he is these days. I'm glad Elena stood up for herself and not letting people tell her what she can and can't do. She was to harsh in what she said but at least she doesn't do whatever she's told, she did what she chose to. Loved the recap!!!

I agree that Damon was excessive with the protectiveness, but Stefan went off the rails a long time ago. He also killed Damon's girlfriend, or did you forget about that? Despite the fact that Damon acted like he didn't care, he totally did. Elena is selfish, reckless and quite frankly idiotic at times.

Guess you forgot that again Stefan was doing something to save his brother . Klaus was tried of Damon tracking them down and was going to take care of him if Stefan didn't.

Surprise, surprise; yet another episode about a party. :roll: At least 2/3 - 3/4 of the episodes are about parties, balls, masquerades, soires, shindigs, box-socials, etc.



Mystic Falls, the ultimate party town.





(Silly post. All those screencaps what a waste of bandwidth.)
