    The Vampire Diaries "Into the Wild" Review: Island Time

    The cure has become just another way to dramatize TVD's central love triangle, for better or for worse.

  • Episode Summary

    Professor Shane leads a group to a remote island off the coast of Nova Scotia, where he believes they will find the secret of the cure. As the group hikes to the island's interior, the rivalry between Rebekah and Elena continues. As Stefan tries to keep the peace, and Damon accuses Shane of leading the group into a trap. Bonnie and Jeremy work to decipher the message of the Hunter's mark, while Shane reveals more about the legend of Silas and the witch Qetsiyah, along with details from his own past. Back in Mystic Falls, Tyler confronts Klaus, and Caroline finds herself in the middle of the ensuing violence.

    • The last few episodes leading up to the best of the season and the return of the best of TVD the second half of season 2

      This review talks about the previous episode as well as this one. Wow what an intense episode, there were revelations, action, several kidnappings, and betrayal. Despite the things that Damon does sometimes that make him an a**, there are many times when people should listen to him, from the first moment Shane came on Damon didn't trust him the moment he met him, and if I recall correctly neither did saying that all weird mystical people who show up turn out to be evil. But that is how it goes and the interrogation scene was worth it. With the last couple episodes Elena has finally utilized her vampire abilities especially when the Gilbert siblings teamed up against Kol. Also out of all the originals the only one I have ever had some sympathy for was Rebekah, and despite me wanting to stake her myself in "After School Special" Since than and in the previous episode we have been reminded of all the betrayals she went though, how she really has wanted since her character came on was to attend a high school dance, I actually wanted to hug her after seeing the sad look on her face when Stefan told her the dance was canceled, but the smile she hid when attemtping to do the Breakfast Club Slide made up for it. And most of all she wants to love and be loved as a human. Something happened in the last episode i'm sure certain millions of fans were waitin to see, Jeremy's Hulk impersonation an completely shirtless. Speaking of that anyone else think that in the scene where Bonnie is taking pictures there was a hint of a possible rekindling? Bonnie certainly took her chance to touch his chest and he certainly did not seem to mind one bit. Bonnie has become the second half season 2 badass again, only this time it was through manipulation and will lead to no good. And than there's Shane who just when we thought he couldn't be more evil, this is when he really showed his true colors. And than of course there was Tyler confronting Klaus, which I'm sure everyone knew would go wrong. Loved when Caroline showed up and called Klaus out on all the things he did especially reminding him and us about Jenna. But once she got close I actually was caught up in what she was saying I was surprised when Klaus grebbed her. We all knew Caroline wouldn't die, which actually led to one of the best scenes of the series with dying Caroline actually getting through to the humanity that Klaus buries, but she manages to bring it out and when Klaus thought she was dead and had tears in his eyes I actaually for the first time felt for him

      Okay here is my predictions about certain things

      The Cure: It will be one of these

      1 doesn't exist 2. does exist but will be taken by someone and the group will have to give chase. 3. The cure exists but something happens where it can only used once, or that's the way it already is. Just imagine Elena vs Rebekah on that one!

      Silas and Katsia

      1 I think that Silas if in physical form will kill Shane right away, or if he will somehow posess him

      2. I think that Katsia who is a spirit and Bonnie's ancestor will posses Bonnie and either help fight Silas or be a big bad either way it will be for the rest of the season. Now the thing is we know that witch spirits can posses alive witches, we saw Esther do it to Bonnie and the Klaus Tyler body switch so some might think it's old. Either way there will be bad consequences for Bonnie using dark magic, but from the look of next episode Jeremy says to Bonnie he will get them through what's happening so maybe if he rips off his shirt his biceps will distract everyone and Bonnie kicks some a**! lol

    • Why, oh, Why?

      Why do they have warm clothes there in the forest? They are freakin vampires, and why does Elena have a bottle of water in her bag? It's not like they can get cold or thirsty...
    • Into the Wild

      Into The Wild was a very exciting and entertaining episode of the Vampire Diaries. I really enjoyed watching because there is a lot of significant character development for a lot of the characters. It was intriguing to see the conflict between Tyler and Klaus and also between Damon and Shane. There were a few surprising twists in the plot and it was awesome to watch the story unfold. I Lake the scene where Caroline touch touched upon the last bits of humanity left within Klaus. It was intriguing to learn more about scenes past and it was interesting to see what he had orchestrated in the end. I loved the growth between Elena and Rebekah. The ending was pretty awesome and I can't wait to watch what happens next!!!!!!!!!moreless
    • Average

      Average episode and its about time vampire Diaries get back on track this season, the episodes after the mid season premier are a bit slow. Enough with baseless chase for the cure that is ruining the show and is unheard of in Vampire mythology. Shane is turning out to be the main villain this season and i think will be the new Silas.
