    The Vampire Diaries "Catch Me If You Can" Review: The Race for the Cure Is On

    "Catch Me If You Can" was the typical kind of mid-season episode we've seen from TVD before: There was some cleaning up to do in the fallout of last week's more visceral episode, but there were also a lot of…

  • Episode Summary

    EDIT

    Klaus attempts to control Jeremy by threatening Matt's life, leaving Jeremy furious. Damon provides guidance to Jeremy as he prepares to face off against Klaus' new vampires, but they discover that Kol has beaten them to the task. Kol makes it obvious that he will not stop until everyone gives up the search for the cure. Rebekah, in search of a new ally, reminds Stefan that they were once close. Sheriff Forbes and Mayor Hopkins begin questioning Professor Shane about his role in the Founders' Council deaths. Bonnie starts to ask questions of her own, and Shane's answers push Bonnie to the edge of her powers. Elena makes a deal with Klaus to keep Jeremy safe but is forced to come up with her own plan after a new danger presents itself in the form of an unexpected enemy.

    • Stefan for the win!

      Oh God, I love Stefan!!! I really enjoyed the way he talked to Elena! His remark about Elena not knowing him when he is not in love with her was awesome and it was the most interesting part of this episode! Go Stefan, Go!
    • Rebekah! <3

      Finally Stefan becomes mildly interesting by associating with Rebekah. She can do so much better than him tho.



      I miss Elijah! Maybe he's the one who sent the tongue chewing guy?



      And only Elena can come up with a diabolical plan that makes no sense. For all she knows, Kol may have turned Damon, Stefan, Caroline etc.



      Professor Shane is an annoying asshole and needs to go away.moreless
    • Go Stefan!

      Is it just me, or did everyone else also think that it was about time that Stefan said something to Elena. I realize that she is in love with Damon, but she spent the last 3 seasons being in love with Stefan (not to mention the fact she was still in love with Stefan at the beginning of this season). She must see that she is hurting him so she could be a little bit nicer. So Stefan's remark about her not knowing him when he is not in love with her was awesome!



      I wonder how long Damon will have to be locked up. I think Kol's untimely demise will have to come soon because I love Damon!



      I also think that Jeremy should start killing some vampires. Other than our fabulous favorites, aren't other vampires supposed to be heartless and empty (ie. the Ripper). So instead of provoking Klaus to turn innocent ppl, why doesn't he go on a hunting spree of not-so-good vamps?



      Ps: April is boring. I know she wasn't in this episode but I thought I would throw it out there, what is her purpose in the show again? Oh that's right, she doesn't really serve one.moreless

      catch me if you can was a perfect and very entertaining episode of the Vampire Diaries. I really enjoyed watching because there was a lot of character development and plot progression and drama intrigue and surprise. it was fun watching Damon hunt Jeremy. there are many other awesome character interactions as well. I liked how everything played out and I certainly look forward to watching what happens next!!!!!!!!!

      From the middle of season one, I have been a diehard Delena fan. How could you not be? Damon was cool and badass, while Stefan was the angsty and Edward Sullen type guy. And now, Stefan isn't like that, because he's not completely obsessed with miss depressed, instead, he's cool and for once actually fun, like Damon was before he and Elena became an item so now I'm pretty torn! But yeah, this episode wasn't great, like this whole season. I hate the characters of shane, and frankly always thought bonnie, Jeremy and Matt were boring, especially in the new episodes! But the originals are my life, amazing characters. Bring back elijah and katherine already! Elena's idea at the end was kind of contradictory though. Its smart and all, but isn't she meant to be really compassionate?moreless
