The Vampire Diaries S05E02: "True Lies"

I may only have several thousand flaws, but certainly one of the biggest is my inability to realize when people are sick of me. Maybe you can relate? Like, someone's entire body language and maybe even their spoken language will be saying "Price, kindly get the f*ck out of here so that I can relax or eat my meal or raise my family or slip into a dreamless sleep, please, I'm so tired, please just leave already." But then here's me thinking we're still having a great time and I'm laughing and rolling around on the living room floor ripping up newspapers and frightening the help. Like, I get it. I overstay my welcome sometimes or even most of the time or maybe even always. But as it turns out, knowing what your audience thinks is harder than it looks! That's not only true IRL (in real life), but it's especially true for TV shows. Viewers can VERY easily grow tired of certain characters or plots, but we don't have the option to stamp our feet or huff & puff or call 911 about it. No, when an episode airs, the people making that show are already like eight episodes ahead and might not even KNOW we hated something they made eight episodes ago. You know what I'm saying? The lag is too great.

That's what makes The Vampire Diaries such a magical phenomenon. It just KNOWS when we're going to be sick of something, like it's psychic or something. And sure, maybe it's not exactly batting a thousand (which is a baseball euphemism that means "full intercourse") when it comes to successful plotlines, but considering it wrings four seasons' worth of story out of each season it airs, this show's success rate is astonishingly high. Let's see, how do I give examples of this show's psychic abilities without seeming too negative? Uh, well, how about the absence of April so far? It's almost like the show realized she was a waste of time and just called it a day? Or, in the example most relevant to this recap, the fact that by episode 2 of this season Stefan is already out of the safe and Silas seems so doomed? Like, both of those were good concepts for a finale, but nobody wants to see a show with Stefan drowning over and over or Silas walking around being a jerk and using very ill-defined and boring powers on people. We as viewers are done with those things and it's delightful to realize that the writers seem to be very done with those things also.  Of course, one could argue that this show also sometimes jumps the gun and ends plotlines prematurely (Lexi's existence comes to mind), but that's a fair tradeoff if it keeps the twists churning.

Anyway, this is just an overwritten way of saying that this show just GETS us. It knows what we will or won't like. It knows when to convince us we were wrong about not liking something; it acknowledges when we were right all along about not liking something. It's frankly amazing how subtly and effectively this cruise liner corrects itself, and probably without us ever knowing it's happening. But let's stop talking about generalities and get specific: "True Lies" was one of the best episodes of this show in recent memory. In addition to the usual amounts of suspense and excitement, wasn't it also very hilarious? Like way more noticeably funny than usual? Maybe that's just a sign that things are still lighthearted and aren't yet as nightmarish as they probably will become later, but what an enjoyable hour of television. Let's talk about it!

The episode began with a brief acknowledgment that Bonnie had just witnessed the slaughter of her own father. In this town that sort of thing barely merits a second thought, so it was nice she got to mourn for about 11 seconds. But if we're being real, it seemed like Bonnie was mostly just sad about not being able to physically grope Jeremy in this, her hour of need.

This WAS the true tragedy of her situation. But anyway, who cares about some dead Cylon, let's get back to KATHERINE! What was she up to NOW?

Apparently after she'd left Jeremy for dead on the side of a highway, she wandered around in the woods all night? Typical Katherine! Except she looked real busted now and had to resort to flagging down cars for help.

Unfortunately the citizens of Mystic Falls were not very helpful to Katherine! This lady just straight MACED HER.

But it was truly hilarious how Katherine immediately went into BRAWLER mode. Human or not, NOBODY maces Katherine and gets away with it.

But before Katherine could beat this lady's head right into the pavement with her tiny fists, Matt ran out and captured her at gunpoint.

So there you had it. Katherine had basically gone feral and Matt was now taking hostages at gunpoint in broad daylight. Just another beautiful Tuesday.

Meanwhile in Stefan's very wet, very soggy brain, he and Elena were enjoying a nice afternoon nuzzling their cold dead vampire parts together under a blanket of lens flares.

But because all bliss is fleeting if not completely fraudulent, suddenly Elena began to impersonate a fire hydrant and spit water all over the place! Stefan was all, "Oh no, this blanket is chenille!" but Elena didn't listen, she was just like *spitttttttttttt*. Still though, it was Stefan's most pleasant drowning to date.

Poor fella. At least now we know that vampires don't prune up.

Meanwhile at Virginia's answer to the University of Phoenix, Elena was still kinda freaked out over her former roommate. Not because the roommate had been brutally murdered, but mostly because the roommate had had a picture of Elena's dad on her cell phone. Also, her murder had been covered up and Elena really, really, really wanted to investigate. Caroline wasn't as excited about that idea.

Honestly, Caroline had the right idea here. These ladies should know by now that anytime there's a suspicious incident or hints of a secret society, getting involved will only lead to, months down the line, some climactic, over-the-top, catastrophic showdown with a powerful supernatural being and one or more of their closest friends or family will be murdered forever. Maybe just stay out of it this time? Let some other gang of monsters get caught up in it?

Oh, and in this scene we learned that they had planned on majoring in either Communications, or in Caroline's case, drama. Hahaha sure, guys. I guess you are potentially immortal now so your formal education doesn't matter, but quit playin' like you're going to attend college all four years. Can you imagine if the next EIGHT seasons of this show all took place in college? Not gonna happen.

Meanwhile at the quarry (which is my favorite segue), Damon was very nicely pleading with Sheriff Forbes to check the water for his brother. 

I'm not sure why Damon didn't just strap on some floaties and take the plunge himself, but then again, yeah, a citizen being in mortal danger really does fall under Sheriff Forbes' jurisdiction. She muttered something about working on the murdered mayor case (which, WHAT? That had to have made national news and sparked a nationwide manhunt right?), but eventually agreed to let a deputy or two search for Stefan. So, uh, phew.  

Haha okay. So. This is the new professor on The Vampire Diaries. This is what he looks like. Whoops BRB I need to check for something on Instagram real quick. Okay got it, anyway, so this professor guy is also a doctor, which is only important because Elena saw that he'd forged her roommate's fraudulent death certificate that omitted any mention of vampire bites. So of course this meant that Elena and Caroline needed to infiltrate his lecture on Applied Microbiology where he immediately creeped everybody out by telling them that the school bonfire was inspired by the burning of bodies during the Civil War. But while you guys were busy being creeped out by that speech, i was laser-focused on that weird glass of brackish water on the table. It was there before he arrived in the room! What WAS that? Who left it there? What beverage was it? WAS it a beverage at all? I need answers and I need them now.

While it made me laugh that we finally saw Elena attend a class and it wasn't even one she was enrolled in or taking seriously in any way, it still seemed so harsh when the professor kicked her out for not knowing ANYTHING about ANYTHING.

Anyway the main revelation here was that The Vampire Diaries tends to have attractive teacher figures. Did you ever notice this? Maybe that's just my opinion.

So then Silas showed up on campus and it was the first time Elena had laid eyes on Stefan or Stefan-like dudes in months. So she was very happy to awkwardly hug him with joy.

So I have a very basic question. Vampires have extremely sensitive eyes and ears and noses and mouths, but they are totally unable to detect that their friend/brother/lover has been replaced by an immortal monster who had just spent upwards of a thousand years rotting in a tomb? I don't care how many showers Silas had taken, or how quickly he had adapted to the world of Kiehl's, I guarantee you he still had a touch of tomb-stank on him. Well, whatever, Elena definitely did not notice that Stefan wasn't Stefan, which was one of the more insulting things to have happened to Stefan in a while. "We love you and care about you, but we literally didn't notice when you were replaced by some dude with no personality who we barely know."

Okay, so, this was hilarious. Katherine had a cold!


Sorry, had to. But yeah, Katherine had a cold and she was miserable, and it was made all the more degrading by the fact that Jeremy and Matt were keeping her hog-tied in Matt's truck. Except for this brief restroom break where a gas station attendant tried to murder Katherine with a shotgun.

Luckily Matt pulled a classic Matt-style shotgun snatch! But poor Katherine, seriously, summer colds are not fun.

So then Damon paid the campus a visit, and this was a funny scene in which he came in to bark orders at Caroline to help him figure stuff out and he kept picking up clothes and throwing them at her. Like, relax, let a lady choose her own clothes, jeez. Also this scene reminded me of Season 1 when Damon and Caroline had VERY debatable sexual relations that will make fans very mad if you imply they were something close to rape OK MOVING ONNN


So at some point shortly after Stefan offered to "hold" Elena's phone in his pants pocket, his story started to sound shadier and shadier. Like, he'd shown up on campus to inform her that her brother had gone missing and then also ask her where her brother was? Elena's come a long way since her human days, but this scene was just Classic Elena.

So then the new college bro--Jessie?--offered to give Elena the scoop on her new sexy professor-doctor, the one who'd been involved in her roommate's murder cover-up. I guess the professor-doctor was part of some secret society that seemed not unlike the very terrible and incompetent secret society back in Mystic Falls. And then Damon ran in and punched Jessie in the face!

Poor guy. I honestly feel so bad for any new friends these girls make at Whitmore. Though it was charming how openly smitten both Elena and Caroline were by him despite both of them having boyfriends. Caroline especially seemed 'bout it.

This was another great and well-written bit of dialogue. Katherine openly groused about how many incredible things she'd overcome in her life (childbirth, Klaus, etc.) only to be nearly undone by some sniffles. And then it was extremely heartwarming when Jeremy wrapped her up in a blanket and she seemed very surprised and touched. I love that stuff.

Meanwhile Matt was off in the woods doing whatever and Silas found him!

Silas' mind-control tricks weren't working on Matt, so he leaned in closer to get a better look and found out that Matt's head was already occupied by some other entity! So then Silas reverted to Plan B: Snapping Matt's neck!

We knew Matt had the ring on though, so it wasn't super surprising when he woke up. What WAS surprising though, was that he woke up on The Other Side. And we got to see what it looked like finally! Oh, and guess who was just sort of hanging out:

The coolest part about The Other Side was the way it sounded. All echoey and silent and eerie. Loved that. I mean it still looked like a fake forest, but it was consistent with what we'd known to be true: It's exactly like the world of the living, except living people can't see them. Not even Jeremy, for some reason, who can legit see ghosts usually. Not sure how that worked, but still. Also, we learned that every time someone with an immortality ring dies, their soul gets swept further and further away from their body, which explains why it takes longer and longer for them to resurrect. Anyway, these were some info-nuggets strictly for the nerds, but I loved learning them. Bummed there weren't other ghosts hanging around though. Still holding out hope for a Sean Faris cameo :(

So then this whole thing went down. Elena mouth-attacked Damon only to then shove a bottle of Vervain water down his throat.

And then she tried to murder him so much!

Luckily he spit Vervain right in her face and got her to chill out for a sec. As it turned out Silas had put a spell on her that would make her want to murder Damon anytime she looked at him. Oh, Silas, you catty c*ckblockin' jerk.

I liked this moment where Caroline tended to Jessie's bruises with a popsicle. I found it very romantic, especially when they bonded over disappointing exes. But again, I worry for anybody who becomes friends with these kids.

Jessie should not so much as go through a Wendy's drive-thru with these ladies until he's had his will notarized.

Meanwhile Jeremy and Katherine heard Matt's screams and fled their campground. Jeremy really wanted to go back and save Matt but Katherine advised him to just pull a Katherine and RUNNNN. That's when she learned a valuable lesson about assholery.

Yep, it looked like Katherine was finally starting to soften up with regard to others. I mean, YOU try and not feel super introspective after an angel-faced hunk tells YOU off.

Speaking of which, how amazing was Jeremy's tussle with Silas?

First Jeremy got all braggy about how as a hunter he was impervious to Silas' mind control tricks, but then he went on to brag about doing Crossfit and then threw a hatchet at him and THEN ran at him with windmill arms. Unfortunately Silas had a trick up his sleeve!

A double self-stabbing! OH NOOOOOOOO, JEREMYYYYYY

It was looking bad for Jeremy, you guys. It was looking real bad. Silas was about to plant that hatchet right in Jeremy's skull and Jeremy's personal death count was probably going to finally enter into the triple digits. But then!

KATHERINE!!!! And then my heart and brain exploded into fireworks because this was THE BEST. A real, genuine, emotionally motivated character reversal by the baddest ass lady on the show. She showed up and shotgunned an ANCIENT WIZARD to save Jeremy's life. Just so perfect and great. I only care about Katherine anymore. More of this arc pls. It's everything great about this show all wrapped up into one tiny Bulgarian.

Meanwhile, Elena and Damon were still chillin' half-naked in her dorm room and Silas' curse made Elena want to break a gas vein and explode them both to pieces.

But then Damon realized that Elena needed to refocus her emotional energies elsewhere...

And it worked! Elena just needed to think about Stefan and she cheered up. Oh, and she also admitted that she'd been having psychic dreams about Stefan, meaning those weird lens flare scenes were actual scenes transpiring between Elena and Stefan in their MINDS. Which, WHOA. Vampire telepathy?? That would certainly make things interesting on this show FINALLY. But yeah, anyway, the whole think-about-Stefan thing was probably not Damon's highlight of the day.

This was hilarious though... Immediately after the curse was broken, Caroline walked in to find them both tied to chairs looking wrecked.

Hahah that was funny. I usually try not to recap the jokes, but I just really laughed a lot at that one. This episode had a lot hard laughs in my opinion, I definitely approved.

So then Bonnie came out to Matt about being a dead person and he lectured her about keeping such a weird secret like that. Then he found his own body and was it slightly erotic  to anybody else when he touched himself? JUST ASKING.

Before she disappeared into the woods to do whatever it is Bonnie's ghost does in the woods, she gave an emotional speech about how crummy her afterlife had been and how much she wants to be human again. Uh-oh, I smell an ill-advised dabbling in some form of dangerous magic! Which, fine. Let's get Bonnie human again. It might not change the fundamental aspects of her character, but it'll at least end this tragic horror show before it gets too unbearable.

Then I guess Silas healed his shotgun wounds and went to a gas station to steal blood from the guy working the counter. That's when he was confronted by those two Europeans who'd put a spell on Matt or whatever last week. Did you LOL (laugh overly loudly) when Silas joked about how "gypsy" isn't a politically correct term? But anyway yeah: They were gypsies. And they'd been using Matt's skull as a sort of peephole to keep tabs on Silas. But now that they had Silas at (tiny) knife point, they could finally put their plan into action!

In this case the plan of action was that the sexy lady gypsy stabbed her friend and then sexily brain-seduced Silas for some reason.

Whatever she was thinking about, Silas LIKEY. Hey quick question, is Silas still all worried about his dead wife and committing suicide and all that? Or is he just a full-time dick-for-no-reason now?


This was just another scene of the professor talking to Elena. He knew her father and wanted to tell her more about why he forges death certificates, but she mostly just blew him off. She had undead Italian-Americans to worry about!

For his part, Damon openly claimed he was secure enough in his relationship with Elena that he didn't mind that she and Stefan were each other's emotional constants. SURE, Damon. We all know how Elena is only ever just a series of mass murders away from changing her mind about whom she'd like to sleep with. Don't be TOO secure.

Anyway, their intense mouth-battle was interrupted by a phone call. Stefan's lockbox had been found! 

And it was in the middle of the woods for some reason? Sometimes my brain simply rejects basic facts or information so I don't remember why the safe was in the forest. All that's important was what was inside:

NOT STEFAN. Just a dead body all ripped to pieces by a Ripper. But again, NO STEFAN.

Uh-oh. This was definitely a good news/bad news scenario. Their friend and brother and ex-lover was no longer drowning to death over and over. But on the other hand he was probably running around eating EVERYBODY. Elena should probably just go back to college and wait it out, but she probably won't. Typical Elena.

"True Lies" was a mega fun episode. We're still in the beginning stages of some presumably major madness to come, but for an episode of mostly set-up it sure was a breezy, funny, entertaining hour of--



QUESTIONS:

... What is the more valuable college degree, Communications or Theater?

... If you had super-smelling abilities, would you be able to smell an ancient wizard while in the midst of an intimate hug?

... Should more college professor-doctors look like Dr. Wes Maxfield?

... Will Stefan take a break from eating citizens to change out of his wet socks?

This episode was awesome thanks to one angel faced, IMO hottest angel faced hunk in existance. And no if I were to write my own slash fic, if Matt was gettin with the idea of what it be like to get it on with a dopplegabger of their own(And everyone don't lie, in some dream or just when you were feeling horny but not about things you can tell your friends about, like wanting to tap that body double of you. No both Jeremy and Matt have had the worst luck with woman, which of Jeremy's girlfriends haven't died? none. Which of Matt's turned out to be a supernatural creature and dumped his ass? well there's Caroline, and, uhh ok props seriously to Matt for spending the summer banging not only a blond bombshell original, but also took it to a whole new lever with said original having another chick join in, I just love Rebekah that way! And this time while first when blond bombshell original and angel face number 2 departed ways they pretty much said "man that whole summer fucking in more ways than one was great, ok fuck ya later!" but unfortunatly other mystery girl Rebekah was kind enough to invite into her and Matt's bed with the biggest cheeseburger grin, is that a term? is is it shit eating grin, but why would someone grin after eating shit? Cheeseburger me anytime.
Anyway since both the greek god among us Steven. R McQueen (Jeremy) and the blond blue eyed angel face Matt just have had terrible relationships. I think it's time they chilled out after the bar closed and got really wasted while discussing who died more, and taking a shot to each death, when would you look at that one of them just happens to have a computer, whoops how did that porn get there? Well we might as well make use of eachother, I mean of it, i mean both (They may not be at college, where i and u know many of u learned this diobolical trick But here's the biggest mystery to me, I am obviously gay, but i do not come off as it. Every friend I have ever told at first didn't believe me, I even got called the straightest gay dude someone had ever met. So how is it that if every friend and family had no idea, these other dudes who also don't come off as gay as well as the ones who do always figure me out? It's not that I'm the straightest gay dude, it's that my gaydar doesn't seem to be able to sense others, but somehow I'm sending out mental signals, HOW!
And damn it Bonnie why don't i get to watch half naked Jeremy work out, or in the shower?

First of all, SO HAPPY THAT YOU ARE BACK. Having your recaps to look forward to makes watching so much more fun. Missed your snark so much! ahhhh ok enough love fest, as far as the episodes - I am loving this season so far, it is such a nice change from the constant doom and gloom that was season 4. This season feels more like seasons 1 and 2 to me, more fun! Human Katherine is amazeballs, and many have commented that they miss the originals but I frankly don't. I think the show is doing just fine without them!

You know, the episode was fine and everything great. Only....there's just this one thing I didn't really understand, WHY at all did Damon ask the Sheriff for help in looking for his brother and not just plunge right into the lake and find out in, like, 10 seconds if Stefan's really there or not with his super vampire abilities? Unless i'm looking over something painfully obvious, don't blame me for finding it duuuumb.

You're obviously forgetting about Damon's hydrophobia! There was a whole episode arc about how he's terrified of water because of a bad experience with some pool floaties. That's why he didn't just dive into the water and look himself like the unbreathing supernatural being he is.

So, I am pretty impressed with the college transition. Ms. Plec has actually put herself in the same position as Joss Whedon did in 1999-2000 when he started angel and buffy conveniently went off to college in the parallel season on BtVS. Any buffy fan probably thinks S4 SUCKED, while the beginning of Angel was pretty good, probably because Joss dedicated all of his creative power to his new show. So when I saw this situation being recreated with the Originals, I was understandably concerned. It seems like the opposite though in Julie's case. Yay great episode good job Julie learning from someone else's mistakes k thanks bye

I have to say that TVD has made a solid transition to college. I'm really digging this season so far. Elena continues to be a more interesting person. Matt has something to do. And Katherine is the best as always.

Highlight of the episode: "...I'm the freaking moonstone" -Annoyed Katherine

Price is right, the writers know us and are even willing to make fun of themselves and some of the ridiculous points of the show. Here's hoping season 5 is the craziest and most fun season yet!

I really enjoyed this episode and am digging the college transition so far. :) Haha, this show is too much fun. I've discovered a few other gals in my real life that secretly watch it, so now I have some people to help share the "guilt" in guilty pleasure.

Nina Dobrev is so great. I mean, it's not quite Orphan Black to the point that you're actually convinced the clones are played by different actors, but it's really quite close. I love seeing her play all of the versions of Elena and Katherine!

And speaking of Elena, I've never had nearly as large a problem with her as you all, but she's definitely improved this season so far! (And was improved parts of last season, too, but now I feel like the writers have really settled into vampire-Elena mode.) The problem is, it seems like the writers need either Elena or Caroline to act kind of dumb at all times, so now that Elena's being chill, Caroline has to be a bit of a brat. Haha, oh, but there was the line in the season opener when Elena literally SAID, "It's all about me" or something after finding that picture of the dead roomie with Elena's dad. . . Haha, the writers HAD to have done that on purpose. They think it's funny to have Elena always making things about her! (Remember the episode when they were all lighting floating lanterns for dead loved ones, and when it was her turn, she freaking lit one for herself? Hahahaha.) Ok, but other than those occasional times, I think she has been completely not a bummer lately.

This is for 2 reasons. One is that she is being more fun and cheerful, and the other is because she's not coming up with REALLY, REALLY bad plans every episode. Remember ALL the BAD PLANS?

enjoyed the episode. katherine/matt/jeremy were great.

very glad ripper Stefan is back (way more interesting). But not looking forward to another love triangle.

Side note, Paul Wesley is looking very thin. Like sickly thin...

Ah, yeah, that's why Paul Wesley doesn't look as hot as usual. Of course, maybe he has just been running or something. A combination of losing a bit of weight and the light face makeup might explain the sickly look? I was thinking he just wasn't looking as hot because Silas is a jerk, but actually yeah, now I want him to eat a cheeseburger! Or take some of Jeremy's muscles, 'cause lil bro has too many this season! (For me, I know that's subjective. :) )

Love Ripper Stefan! Yay! But poor guy is going to have to wean himself off being evil AGAIN! Is he even going to this time? If he does, is he ever going to forgive himself for being a murderer AGAIN?

This episode was awesome. I thought that Nina Dobrev was awesome in this episode...in both roles as El or Kat..
Jeremy was awesome when he kicked Silas his ass.
It was a nicely done episode...

Id give up the next 5 Founders day Functions just to hear Klaus say "Rippa" one more time. Katherine made this episode for me, her dealing with being human and interacting with the others cast from a position of weakness is fun to watch. Great review as all always and i knew the Green Tongue would get some love from Price lol

No, since Elena was adopted, and technically not related to Jeremy, so JerHulk isn't related to Katherine. Which means Karemy is legal. :)

I thought they were cousins, right? Wasn't Elena's biological father the man she THOUGHT was her uncle this entire time? Katherine still isn't related to Jeremy (since Katherine's family line came down through Elena's biological mother's side), but I think Jeremy and Elena are still technically related.

But, imafknlady (and PS I love your username, it's perfect), it's Katherine, and while I may not be Colin Singleton, I do adore her, and can't remember a time when she killed Jeremy. I know it's late, but my memory isn't THAT bad [yet]. I would know if someone were to have killed my dear JerHulk (other than Damon, but it's been decided that he's an ass, so I've blocked that from my mind.)

Hi Klara. ;)

You're bad!! They want us to feel sympathy for her, & try to make her redeemable, right? but there's a problem.. no one seems to think Katherine killed Jeremy. Rebekah was forgiven by Matt because he let her know she f*d up, and walked away. We forgave her because she was punished and sought redemption. Everyone needs to hold Katherine accountable if they're going to have her character develop... & before anyone is allowed to ship that hot mess, ehem. Now, come here so I can spank you..

1. I don't know but it wasn't the point to pick something lucrative, it was well emphazised by Caroline that she wanted to try new stuff like drama.

2. Yes, that was a unfortunate miss.

3. No. It's annoying that all characters in this show look like models. When Silas pretended he had a curse by Qetsiyah that made him look hidious, that was a good touch but of course they had to destroy that story arc.

4. It's possible he never drowned at all and it was just a huge mind trick by Silas. Why Silas wanted to hurt his own doppelgänger is beyond me (this should be explained) but whatever. I just remembered that moment when Stefan said it took him 30 years to get back on track with his life then when Ghost-Lexi came back used vampire control mind to speed that time up by only needing a few secounds. That pissed me off.

Great episode overall and good points about everything. I seriously hope they continue to focus on Katherine's rehabilitation yet not turning her into a Elena but kind of like how Damon called himself as a reformed serial killer.

Interesting with the Gypsie's/Travellers who's ultimate mission is apparently greater good I guess, they wanted Silas locked away but then that girl with her own agenda, another player to the mix! I think they should skip the part where Silas gets into a relationship, he's isn't fit for it. Either give him a all knowledge-greed, suicide or resurrecting his old lover to keep the show on track but throwing in meaningless relationships will just steal screen time from other more important story arcs.

Jessie seems cool, I hope they keep him around, and that new professor, I hope he has something else to bring to the table other than what professor Shane did. I actually liked that guy but his agenda to avenge his family (it's fun when people have different agendas than their families or power like all others so far do) felt rushed. Another secret society? You know, I actually hope this one has nothing (or perhaps only a little?) to do with supernatural but actually certain knowledge about everything or whatever. I can't wait to see Elena and Caroline caught up with it, having to study to be able to enter the club.

Has anyone mentioned how Jesse asked Elena for help to collect firewood, he then picked up a bunch but dropped them all for one piece which he kept in his hand pointed at Elena for the entire time he was story telling. Elena also picked up on this and looked a little weirded out by it. Then Damon came in and went all 'Damon-like' on him. So of course we'll have to wait to find out more info on him. But it has me thinking he's part of the secret society he was talking about.

I was just coming here to say the same thing! The whole time he was was holding that bit of wood I was thinking "Hey Elena, pay attention! That looks like a stake." I think he knows a lot more than he is letting on.

1.What is the more valuable college degree, Communications or Theater?
A degree in Theatre - from there they can make some connections that can get them into small acting parts in movies or tv series and if they're really good actors, they may even star in their own tv series. Caroline for the lead, Elena for the sidekick.

2.If you had super-smelling abilities, would you be able to smell an ancient wizard while in the midst of an intimate hug?
If you're riddled with guilt, your senses kind of get warped.

3.Should more college professor-doctors look like Dr. Wes Maxfield?
While female attendance will be high in the class - they'll have a hard time concentrating. That is if they concentrated on his looks and not on the creepy words coming out of his mouth.

4.Will Stefan take a break from eating citizens to change out of his wet socks?
With the speed he runs at - his clothes are air dried in no time.

Apologize in advance for spelling errors and grammatical errors for the above.

Silas is the worst. What is even his plan anymore?If Klaus was too awesome of a villain to get rid of, Silas was too crappy a villain to even bother casting. I'm gonna need some master plan and soon, 'cause "I'm immortal and hassling people is my raison d'stre" is pretty lame.

Kat Graham and Zach Roerig broke my heart with their performances. Best acting on the show in a looooong time. When Bonnie finds a way to resurrect herself (and thank God she will) a pairing with Matt wouldn't disappoint me.

eventually will. Everyone gets resurrected on this dang show! Hey, since Bonnie's all dead and ghost-like now, shouldnt she be more like a ghost? You know, being able to haunt people and sometimes appear in the land of the living and even push things around? I mean, Bonnie was an Expression witch, that's gotta count for something right??

Loved the episode and couldn't help laughing when she said that she's done all these thing through the centuries and she's being brought down by sinus infection. So true and so funny! The new beau for Caroline, i'm guessing he's working with the professor cause let's be honest, he's way too friendly. Finally whitmore college is possibly the best college ever and i wish i went there!!. Since Elaina probably just ditched the whole semester and will end up graduating with a PHD in microbiology and it's effect on vamparism by the 7th season. *shakes fist*...

I loved these two episodes and am sad to see Elena go back to MF so fast. College Elena who goes Nancy-Drewing with Caroline and does shoulder shimmies is so much more fun than Love Triangle Elena! The college arc and the Katherine arc are really fun to watch (the show did handle the transition to college pretty well and I hope they keep doing it, gives me flashbacks of Buffy S4), but the Stefan-Elena shared dreams scare me. The love triangle drama is so... *groan* Please let's not go there again so fast.

Who wants to bet that the college is going to have a big costume/formal dress event soon and a bunch of people are going to die in it? Lets get real, these people cannot stay out of couture evening gowns for more than a fortnight.

1)Vampire telepathy isn't knew on this show, that's how Damon and Sage peeked into Rebekah's mind in season 3.

Another thing the show had in season 1, was Damon calling out telepathically to Caroline (when she was human and constantly compelled) to break him out when Stephan trapped him.

Although it does seem like the writers are just inventing stuff as they go along.

Hmm... Is it possible since Stephan is Silas's doppelganger that he has some of his powers?

2) Someone please explain to me: What is the deal with Silas vs Jeremy? On the one hand, Silas constantly reminds people that he is NOT a vampire that he doesn't have their rules and that he is something entirely different. Yet, Jeremy is a vampire hunter who is somehow tied to Silas? I don't get it. The 5 hunters were created by a spell so they can battle Silas even though he was already turned to stone and was no threat to anyone really. And if Silas isn't a vampire and the hunters were meant to go after him and not vampires, then how come it took the killing of vampires for the tatoo to grow?

I'm sorry but I'm totally confused here.

3)Actually I have to totally disagree with you on vampires not recognizing Silas. Silas has mind bending powers, you might as well have asked why didn't people recognize him last season when he was masking around (most notably Klaus and Elijah). His ability seem to warp the mind's perception of all 5 senses.

4) Yes, Damon not searching the lake by himself is stupid. Why do shows keep giving characters powers like Super Speed if they aren't going to use them? He can search the lake faster than the deputies.

5) I'm guessing the safe being in the woods is either due to Silas and gypsy chick's plan or less unlikely, Tyler showed up. After all, he is still in the credits, it's only a matter of time till he shows up.

"2) Someone please explain to me: What is the deal with Silas vs Jeremy? On the one hand, Silas constantly reminds people that he is NOT a vampire" - Silas is technically a vampire as he needs blood in order to survive. He turned to stone since he wasn't able to drink blood much like what happened to the vampires that were trapped inside the tomb. (in the first season) ^

Now just because he refuses to acknowledge the fact that he is a vampire that's an entirely different case. Not exactly sure how the story went, but he was a witch/wizard before he became a vampire. (was it a spell that turned him? can't remember, sorry!)

Anyone please correct me if I'm wrong. <

p.s. As for the vampire hunters, my understanding is that they needed the map (kill vampires) in order to find Silas and give him the cure so that he will die.

I'm actually agreeing with JasonMelvil, from what I've understood last season, Silas was never a wizard but this blood-sucking, psychic entity and then Quetsyah made him immortal. Although there are some similarities with the vampires (blood drinking, another kind of compulsion), he's weaker and slower. Also, we know who the original vampires are and Silas is something more ancient.
So the fact that the vampire hunters are tied to Silas simply doesn't make any sense XD The two could only be connected if Esther used Silas as a model for her vampire spell, and who knows that the show won't use this explanation...

I loved this episode. The humor was refreshing and I am enjoying the new dynamics of the show.

Damon and Elena are 100 times more interesting as a couple than Stefan and Elena ever were. Their relationship is built upon a friendship/bond that developed over the seasons. They have passion and are obviously in love. I am enjoying them together.

Jeremy/Katherine/Matt were awesome together. Their scenes were interesting and I hope to see more of it. How awesome was it that Katherine saved Jeremy? After leaving him for dead last week? Katherine as a human has been a highlight for me so far.

Silas is kind of getting on my nerves, but I'm still curious as to what his agenda is.

What was Caroline doing in front of her mirror in a towel, with her phone? Trying to entice Tyler to college by sending some interesting pics despite her claim she wasn't ever having sex with him again? Just speculation on my part....

Is this a joke? Please tell me you are kidding? All Damon and Elena do is make-out, and have sex. That's not a healthy relationship, not to mention that he is keeping secrets from her. And she doesn't even care! <

They haven't had a serious conversation or discussion over anything. Stefan doesn't manipulate and lie to Elena much like what Damon does ALL the time.

It's not "love", it's simply lust.

I feel like the show established Damon and Elena's bond throughout the seasons and what we are seeing now is the honeymoon phase of their relationship. They have lots of passion between them, but they also have a real bond that has been developed over the entire series. As a Delena fan, I was hoping for fun and sexy scenes between Damon and Elena to start off the season since they are finally now an official couple. Their deep connection hasn't went away; they are just enjoying being together.

"They haven't had a serious conversation or discussion over anything. Stefan doesn't manipulate and lie to Elena much like what Damon does ALL the time." are you serious? Stefan lied to Elena since episode 1x01 and manipulated her in an emotional way. Doesn't matter if you are a Stelena fans, you have to know their flaws. Damon lied to Elena only now. The other time was when Bonnie asked him to keep her secret back in season 2. Check yourself. Blame Damon for other things, but the only one who knows how to emotionally manipulating someone is Stefan. (And Elena and Katherine)

Your missing the point, stop trying to shoot the cannon at the Stelena ship, I use to be a Damon and Elena shipper, until I realize their relationship is nothing but sex, and Damon only finds her attractive because she looked like Katherine, the one he loved. He tries to change Elena, and he's scared that Elena will leave him, what happened to the bad boy? Hm? That ain't no relationship. You may think Damon and Elena belong together, but Stefan has suffered many years, many, longer than Damon, Stefan wants to die peacefully with his love unlike Damon who wants to be a vampire no matter what. Most Damon shippers ship "Delena" because they find Damon very attractive, and the hot guy has to be with the prettiest lead girl.

Damon and Elena have no chemistry at all, ever since Ian and Nina broke up their chemistry vanished, even before they broke up in the 4th season it was dispensing.

Your missing the point, Elena belongs with Stefan, she even broke Stefans heart many times, and each time she does, it shatters and it really effects Stefan and makes him fall into depression, he still protects her and cares for her though.

- Stefan fought for Elena when he was compolused by Klaus, even Klaus thinks Elena should be with Stefan, along with Silas. (Ep2 of Season 5 Silas says "Why did she pick you?" or something, besides his doppleganger.)

- Elena saved Stefan when he was going to kill himself, the only reason he wanted to live was for her.

- Stefan has saved Elena, protected her, fought for her, and was always by her side to comfort her.

- Stefan and Elena's relationship NEVER got a chance.

- Elena and Katherine have dreams about Stefan.

- When dancing, Elena asks Stefan to dance but he declines, and than he surprises her by spinning her around and pulling his hand up her back, which she likes and almost snapped her out when her humanity was off.

- Stefan cannot live without her, he doesn't want to live without her.

- "When it's real, you can't walk away."—Lexi, in reference to Stefan and Elena

- Stefan gives Elena space, but he's always there to surprise her when needed, to show he's here for her.

- Elena is the only reason he hasn't switched his humanity switch off, he's hurt, he torned and he's broken. If you were in Stefan's footsteps, you would know how bad it hurts, people may think Stefan isn't hurting but he truly is, people think Damon is the only one who is hurting but he has never experienced or went through what Stefan has been through, Stefan has been through the ripper, broken hearts, saw his best friend die, lose everyone he loves, while Damon doesn't care.

Now let's get into Damon's points;

- Used Caroline as a sex slave.

- Fell in-love with Elena because she looks like Katherine, he didn't get Katherine, even though he loved Katherine so Elena is his look-alike.

- He lies to Elena.

- He's never there for Elena, he doesn't suprise her, he doesn't show he's there for her.

- He brings out a dark, tangled side of Elena.

- All they do is have sex and make out and say "I love you" that isn't love.

- The sire bond started their love. While Stefan watched, completely heartbroken.

- Killed many people, including Lexi, Stefan's best friend, the one who truly cared for Stefan and the one friend he had left who he truly loved and cared for.

- Only cares about being immortal, a vampire..etc

- Leads everyone into messes, even Silas said he came to clean up his messes. (Because he knew he creates messes)

If you truly believe that Elena belongs to Damon, your truly missing the whole point that the whole seasons showed, only reason why Damon and Elena had 'chemistry' is because Ian and Nina were dating in real life, so their interaction with each other was real feelings, but Nina and Paul showed pure feelings in their characters when they weren't even dating! Your missing the point, believe what you wish.

I hope Katherine and Stefan get together, or someone Stefan truly deserves, a girl he can care about and just leave Mystic Falls, because he was ALWAYS there for his brother, and his own brother just kicks him to the curb, nothing has ever gone right for Stefan. The way he treated Katherine long time ago, was the reason why she herself fell in-love with Stefan, pure love.

Get that said. The Katherine part is the issues for me. From the very beginning he has seen Elena as the good Katherine. He's trying to force the love of Katherine through Elena. He's trying to win against his brother. The reason why he fears the relationship being taken is the fact that he knows is not real.

I love Damon as a character but let's not attribute characteristic traits to him that he wouldn't accept as his own anyhow.

Everyone has their own opinion and perception of what happens on screen. I respect your right to have your own opinion. I try not to get involved in shipper wars for this very reason. I disagree with pretty much everything you said and it's when I read posts like yours that I wonder how viewers of the same show can arrive at such different perceptions of what happens on screen. It's amazing to me. I love both Damon and Stefan, but my perception of both characters is completely different from yours.

Wow, thank you for writing this. And this is coming from an ex Delena shipper? Just amazing!

I don't ship either, but Delena is truly disgusting for all the reasons that you listed. Mainly because Damon is a rapist, first he raped Caroline (Elena's best friend for God's sake! ), and in the second season he raped Andie. (it happened on numerous occasions)

He kept hurting/killing all of the people close to Elena, he has called her a bitch, he has threatened her live many times, he took away her free will and he had sex with her (yes, I consider that rape as well), and he has physically hurt her....

Why would anyone want to be with a murdering, pyschotic, rapist, selfish, piece of shit like Damon is just beyond me.

At this point, Elena doesn't deserve to be with someone like Stefan EVER. She doesn't deserve hapiness period.

Price, you missed the best line of the entire episode!
"I'm the freaking moonstone" - Katherine Pierce.

That line had me going mental!! This was such a good episode, I love that tvd can get so shit but then all of a sudden it refocuses and just shows you how awesome it actually can be and you remember that it used to be this good and this is why you love this show!
It was super funny, especially Katherine with her complaining and when Caroline walked in on Elena and Damon. Elena is no longer annoying an weak! I am loving this Elena, I mean she can still be a bit daft, but college Elena is kick ass and fun and being very nancy drew and just awesome. Not sure how I feel about this teacher dude but whatever he's already better than Prof. Shady Shane. Also silus thing is alright, I like the battle with Jeremy and of course Katherine saving the day. Love Katherine.
Intrigued about the gypsies it could be fun, also don't really care about ripper stefan - that's so two seasons ago.

Anyway loving this season so far and can't wait for more!!

Honestly, it kind of seems like this season is being told through Bonnie's eyes, which makes sense since she's dead and a wandering peeping Tom. And it ties in with one of the later novels in the Vampire Diaries series, where Bonnie narrates the story as the protagonist. I just thought that was an interesting connection..

Season 5 looks like it's going to be the best TVD ever!!!!! Yes S1-2 were pretty good, S3-4 were really good. But this S5 appears to have them all beat so far. I love that Damon and Elena are back together (and Together finally!) in their detective mode. Solving mysteries. And searching for Stefan. Again. Thinking maybe DE should have a spin off show " Vamp P.I." and Katherine could be their busy body nagging receptionist. Lol Seriously, this has all the makings of being the best season of TVD.

I was not feeling this episode. Frankly I'm just not feeling this season. I don't always LOVE TVD but there's usually enough to keep me interested but this season I'm just so over so many of the plotlines already. The college hi-jinx have already overstayed their welcome (every new character on that campus is a giant yawn) and Silas is about as intimidating as a puppy riding a unicorn and don't get me started on Aquaman Stefan or "no one cares" Ghost Bonnie. The only thing about this season that I get genuine entertainment out of is human Katherine and that better change because I have nothing to watch Thursday at 8pm and do not want to resort to reading!

I agree that Silas is a huge disaspointment. And I'm guessing he'll be gone by mid season break.

They took someone who terrorized the entire town including the originals and now instantly dwarfed him for no apparent reason.

Heck, all he wanted was to die so just let him. I mean why exactly would one stand in his way? He obviously wants Katherine because she took the cure and he wants to copy it, or take it or whatever. So let him have his way and be done with him.

Now that they gave up on giving the cure to Klaus (or Elena) why aren't everyone working together?

I liked this episode. I am still irritated with the writers for their mishandling of Damon and Elena finally getting together last season after such a great build up. Humanity switch Elena kind of ruined it. But I can forgive and just enjoy the new season. And they seem to have finally gotten then makeup right on the show. It was always annoying that they took someone as beautiful as Ian and put on so much makeup. Matt, too. Everyone looks more natural now.

Bad Elena got the streak during the field trip to "NYC" last season. I was surprised that they had her keep it, but I suspect it's to differentiate her from Katherine now that Elena has graduated from her flat iron.

But yeah, Stefan knows she has it.

I was a bit confused about the safe too at first... thinking maybe Silas had just given Stefan the hallucination of drowning that whole time... but then I realized the Gypsy Traveler girl had a NEW plan she presented to Silas and he liked it very much and I believe they freed Stefan as part of their new scheming.

Yes, wasn't that Gypsy girl the one who knows everything about Stefan's pass, who he is, his future..etc? If so, it probably is apart of their plan. Because where Stefan is at the end of the promo is that bar or gas station, that's where in the "teaser pics" she is there holding a gun I believe, if that is her.

I hope they bring Stefan and Katherine closer, this is an opportunity, Elena broke Stefan's heart far to many time. Katherine said she loved Stefan, and the reasons why she fell in-love with him, now that's she's a human she's opening up, a reason why Stefan fell in-love with Elena, for her personality and being a normal human, he can protect Katherine, and if she opens up to him, who knows. I think it'd be perfect for The Vampire Diaries, it would stop this stupid love triangle and open up two characters. And Elena can have Damon whatever, Katherine and Stefan are so much better.

to the recap: a. Bring Bonnie back. Not because we miss her as human (as someone mentioned below now we see more of her), but because this storyline is once again BORING!!!
b. If I were in Stefan's shoes I would be really mad with every single one of them. And I would just leave them behind and go live my life, because not one of them would deserve the slightest form of affection from me. His brother and his girlfriends did not realize he was Silas?? He immediately understood Katherine was not Elena back at the day!! Shame on all of them!!!
c. Clouds in Damon-Elena wonderland. Yeah right, Damon is cool with Elena wanting to kill him and only calming down by the thought of his brother.
d. I like the idea of Caroline and the new guy, but yeah he will most probably die. (And Caroline was the nice season 2 Caroline all over again in this episode so yay!)
e. The shock! They went to a lecture!
f. Katherine is awesome. I like the interactions between Jer, Matt and her. (btw they are now the only humans, right?) (Oh, and please make Damon as awesome as he used to be)
g. Never ever ever teach Elena how to light matches!! And don't leave matches exposed!! (it's a good thing she can't really use them)
h. RIPPAHHHH!!!!!!!
QUESTIONS:
i. Communications!
ii. Not really. But if they are identical with Stefan wouldn't it mean they have the same smell as well?
iii. Yeah!!
iv. Most importantly: What did he do with his hair???

I really don't know if I'm more excited about the show or the recaps...

Wild speculation time: 1. The psychic Elena-Stefan thing is what will prove to be a somehow very strong supernatural, emotional bond and the reason for a Damon-Elena break
2. It is all doppelganger related.
3. Tatya (or was it Tanya?) was Silas wife, that why he wants something with Katherine and why the Petrovas can feel Stefan's suffering.
4. Katherine and Silas can not remain a long while to the show. Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev will get exhausted. (we already knew what she could do as Elena/Katherine. It is great to see what he can do too. And he is amazing)
5. But is Silas the new evil they have been talking about. Because if we are to be introduced to it then no, since we have already been introduced to Silas.
6. I'm really curious about Elena's father involvement. Why should this come up now? I mean they had moments when they spoke about him (Uncle John and Jer) Nothing really strange came up, but it seems now that he must have been into something.

I don't think Silas is the new big evil however will play a part in it. Maybe gypsy lady is since she has a grand evil plan that mad Silas smile. Silas wanting Katherine might have something to do with the cure she forcibly ingested last season, because in the pilot she said she didn't know the conciseness of it and if she could ever be turned again or will just die. They never really opened up any story line about Elena's dad we know that they were part of the founders council but nothing else, hopefully they explain. I also like the idea of a new normal man for Caroline but she's not very lucky in that department, but I still have hopes for he and Klaus

Yeah, I thought of that too. Otherwise how would she have a picture of him in her cell when he died 3 years ago when she must have been 16. She was too young to know him as a professor and I don't think patients have that kind of a relationship with their doctors, if we consider him being her doctor.
