IN this episode it was shown how Vampire Diaries is a poorly designed series... First, one can not beat an original like that, they are way stronger and faster, and cannot be killed with any wood. Then they suddenly have that wood, but still, they are too slow. And now, Elena (one month old vampire :D ) and his brother kill one of the originals! And they made it to do so using verbain - earlier they showed how original vampires were more resistant to verbain... (Damon was able to dring that water, while this same water crippled Kol - LOL)
By the time, Vampire Diaries became a bad series - pretty disappointing!
EDIT: also, I would love to see someone putting Elena down - she's become an annoying character...
While I loved how the show continuously keep up the suspense, there are way too much convenient plot devices put in by the writers. The powers of the originals just shift convenient from powerful to weak depending the mood of the writers. If Elena was any other character, she would had been easily killed by Kol rather than putting up such a ridiculously strong resistance. Seriously, I am getting very tired of Elena's whining. Kill her off and make the show about the originals already. Rebecca's way hotter anyway.
Elena has to be the wimpiest and annoying vampire ever! I can't wait until she takes the cure. She might get some sort of personality once she becomes human again. Gotta love the Originals, deep down their wicked cold blooded hearts, they care. Psycho-serial vampire killer Klaus loves Caroline and asking semi-reformed Damon for advice. Touching and disturbing. How cool was Bonnie boxing-in Klaus at the Gilbert residence? It's about time someone can cripple an Original. Don't hate me Stefan & Elena fans, but I thoroughly enjoyed the Rebekah & Stefan scenes. I think those two could truly make a go of it, if Stefan ever gets over his Elena obsession. Elena needs to stop drinking the Rebekah haterade. She lost the right to be jealous once she choose Damon and announced to the world she is in love with him. So grow up Elena, you can't have your cake and eat it too. Last, I must share my favorite jaw dropping shirtless. Any excuse to have Jeremy rip off his shirt I'm all for it. I had to manually close my jaw. I vote Jeremy to be shirtless for a full future episode! Who's with me? Hoping next episode really goes somewhere, cause this story line is dragging. Over n Out.
Alot happened in this episode, okay i really want to see more of this new Bonnie & where the hell does her mother comes back spouting orders when she was never really there for her at all. Elena is basically turning into Katherine, she has screwed Stefan & Damon, but a weak version of Katherine. Kinda feel bad for Rebekah & i'm glad she's not dead, but the look on Elena's face when Stefan said he didn't kill her, Jealous Much Elena. So glad Kol is dead, now if somebody can put down Shane that would be good.
Great episode. Fast spaced, with some action, lots of feelings and angst, and some romance.
The originals is, as you may know, one of two reasons I watch VD.
They did not disappoint in this episode. Klaus was snarky and funny and and showed some real feelings. His chat with Damon, case in point. And the look on his face when he watched Kol Chills.
Rebekah was amazing. Glad they gave her even more dept. The argument with Klaus, the scenes with Stefan...
Kol. Wow. He was an evil SOB. That being said, he was interesting, and probably, also right about Silas. To bad that he had to die.
Stefan. Yeah, I know he is not an original, but he is the only one besides them that are interesting. The scenes with Rebekah where great. And I love his snark with Damon and Klaus.
As for the rest... Eeeh, not interested. Jeremy is a mass murderer, Elena is a whiny selfish girl, Bonnie is pretty stupid for thinking she can handle her addiction by herself, and Matt... What was the purpose of him in this episode?
Am I the only one who thinks that Katherine might be making an appearance soon? I mean, she was mentioned! In one very quick >:D
In a more serious note, if Jeremy doesn't spout a personality any time soon I might just give up altogether on him. His entire characterization seems to hang on a husky voice, muscles, and an expressionless face.
Rebekah and totally ship them. They actually take their relationship slowly, and it feels real, unlike "Delena's". That breakfast club sliding in the hall scene was Rebekah= fav character
A View to a Kill was a really awesome episode of The Vampire Diaries and I really enjoyed watching because there is lots of intriguing character and plot development. it was awesome watching the various characters play their parts towards the larger goal. there were also some interesting Revelations and some old familiar faces showing up. I love how you Elaina tried to protect Jeremy from Cole. Klaus reveals his true intentions after suffering a major loss. Rebekah made some interesting decisions as well. Bonnie was b*** and it was fun watching her use her magic. the ending was awesome and it was funny how Jeremy ripped off his shirt Hulk style. I certainly look forward to watching what happens next!!!!!!!!!I
