  • A good TVD episode, but there are better ones

    7.0
    Honestly, I really enjoyed this episode. It was very, how to express myself... plottable. I know that it's not a word, but I meant that the plot was really good. Also, this is one of the few TVD episodes in which we can actually hear some humor. I know that TVD is not a comedy, but every TV show needs SOME humor. The thing with Elijah and his "OMG" was pretty cool.moreless

    I just don't know which was the worse part: yet another couple of brothers in love with yet another doppleganger, the absurd "Underworld" rip offs or the "Original were...pire, Klaus: Whoever thought of that should be fired, immediately.



    Among the terrible flahsbacks, Elijah tries his best to make it look like Elena is actually smart, something that I already doubt long before the one who backs her up is revealed to be the original idiot who fell in love with Katherine. Of course, Stefan & Damon are only repeating the whole Elijah & Klaus drama, that's the only reason Katherine must have picked them to begin with. Good thing is: we met Greta. Bad thing is: this is an official "jump the shark" episode.moreless

    Klaus was a perfect and very entertaining episode of The Vampire Diaries. I really enjoyed watching this episode because there was a lot of plot and character development. The flashbacks were really awesome and it was nice to learn more about Elijah and Klaus as well as Katherine. Elena learns a lot of information from Elijah and keeps her word with him as they have formed a new alliance. It was cool to learn the truth about the curse of the moonstone. I thought the ending of this episode was spectacular. I look forward to watching the next episode of The Vampire Diaries!!!!!!!moreless
  • Elena brought Elijah back to life. He revealed a lot of information. Damon and Stefan fought over how to protect Elena. Jenna discovered the truth. Klaus exchanged Alaric's body for his own one, with the help of his witch/henchman and Luka's sister.moreless

    The episode began how the last one ended, with Elena sitting in the basement, waiting for Elijah to come to life. the way he reawakened, although it has been widely criticized, was believable, and therefore served it's purpose. the effect of being in the house uninvited also answered some previously unanswered questions. then again, elijah answered a lot of unanswered questions, and gave new meaning to a lot that had happened. some new questions were raised, like why was klaus so hell-bent on using the doppelganger to break the spell? do the similarities between elijah and stefan, and damon and klaus mean that damon will inevitably be evil? what is the other way to break the spell on klaus? elena proved to elijah that she keeps her word, and elijah proved that he is, at the very least, good at PRETENDING to have integrity. damon had serious character-development, and is showing himself to truly be a good person at heart. he barely compelled andie throughout the episode, and showed, with their interactions that he wants more than sex now. he wants an actual connection. klaus was all that he's been trumpeted as being: cruel, self-obsessed, selfish and murderous. and was just as imposing as was hoped he'd be. the filmography was fantastic, and the addition of jenna to the ranks of the aware will hopefully be utilised, not simply be pushed aside. looking forward to seeing jeremy, bonnie, caroline and tyler soon. should be awesome.moreless
