  • Whoa! I am speechless!

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again.. This was the best episode yet! TVD gets better with every single episode!

    Okay, so the first thing I loved was how they finally decided to stop almost killing Vicki, and finally "offed" her, and turned her into a vampire. I CANNOT WAIT to see what Vamp-Vicki is like compared to Non-Vamp-Vicki.

    Okay, so the next thing I loved about thiss episode is how Damon saved Stefan, and actually showed some compassion and nice guy-ish ness to his brother and Vicki. I loved his line to Elena... "oh, and be careful who you invite in the house." Awesome!!

    The ending was sad, where Elena said that she couldn't be with Stefan any longer now that she knew his secret... could this be a door that opens for her in Damon like in the bookss?? I guess we'll just have to wait and see!

    'Til next time! Can't wait for the Halloweeen episode. XD

  • Season 1, Episode 6

    Wow. I am speechless. I just finished this episode and let me say, this episode was incredible, no words can describe it. The best episode yet and I am 435% hooked on this show now! In this episode, Stefan tells Elena everything about everything and she learns about his backstory and about Katharine. So, it looks like Katharine is the one who made Stefan and Damon vampires. Stefan tells Elena all about then necklace he gave her and that Damon is the bad vampire. He tells Elena that he will not hurt her and that she needs to trust him and not tell anyone about this because Mystic Falls was once a town full of vampires. Vicki is going through the transformations of becoming a vampire after Damon transformed her. Stefan tells Elena he will help her, but she needs human blood or else she will die, and Stefan and Elena decide they have to lie about all this to Jeremy, Matt, and everyone.

    Incredible Episode!! This show really is amazing! 11/10moreless
  • Are the people who write that this is a great show, seeing the same thing I am?

    The only major character who seems to be making any kind of decision based on thought and plan is Damon. The others come off as stupid.

    Let's list the bad decisions they made:

    Starting with Stefan. Right at the start, instead of chasing his murderous brother before he feeds –let's not forget, by killing people- and getting his strength back, and again becoming an unstoppable threat, Stefan stops to explain it all to Elena.

    I've been an outspoken proponent of Stefan telling Elena everything from the start, stating that if he truly loved her he would have long before now. But that exact instant was not the time. It was more important to save lives than try and convince Elena that he meant her no harm, and not to hate him.

    Get over yourself, Buddy.

    Then later, instead of chasing Vicki into the night, he doesn't stay to protect Elena, knowing full well that come dark, Damon's first port of call would be Elena.

    Damon didn't kill Elena, but no thanks to Stefan.

    Then there was Elena's poor decision-making, not the least of which was, having discovered on her own what Stefan was, adding two-and-two together and realising that the many recent deaths were not wild animal related, and knowing that Stefan has obviously been dishonest with her in not telling her the truth before now, and so likely untrustworthy, she sets off in the middle of the night –telling no one- just to ask Stefan, "what are you?" despite already knowing the answer.

    Switch scenes back to her own house a little later, instead of telling her brother everything, in order to protect him from the turning Vicki –who she has just been told will crave human blood- she stays downstairs humouring her teen-angst in discussion with Stefan.

    Bad decision number three for Elena, she doesn't tell her ex-boyfriend, Vicki's brother, either.

    When the secret was finally out, I also expected that there would be a lot more questions asked by Elena, questions like:

    "Why didn't you tell me earlier, so I would have not invited Damon into the house?" and

    "How do I now uninvited a vampire into the house?" and "What can I do to protect myself, my brother and the rest of my family and friends from Damon/vampires?" and "How do we stop Vicki, now that she is turned?" and

    "Why shouldn't I tell the rest of the town, to protect them?" etc.

    (The next person Damon or Vicki kills, who could have been forewarned by Elena, is actually on her head. America has a sex-register, so that communities are forewarned about dangerous sexual predators, and Elena can't take a leaf out of this book and warn her community about Damon, an even worse predator.)

    Instead, we see her crying against her door after she dumped Stefan, crying her lost love. I just wanted someone to go up and shake her, and say, "Grow the hell up, girl, you have a whole lot more to worry about than lost love with someone who is an entirely different species."moreless

At last Elena knows that Stefan is a vampire this is a very very nice episode with Damon having no ring and turning Viki into a vampire and her becoming blood thursty vampire at last and Damon being evil and revealing the past and how these two brothers become vampires but one question still comes in my mind will they show us how the old girlfriend dies or not i now they told us how but i want to see in my own eyesmoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Goof: In the flashback scene where Katherine asks Damon and Stefan to take her to the Founder's Ball, Damon uses his left hand to remove his hat as he bows down. When the camera angle changes, Damon puts his hat back using his right hand.

    • When Damon and Vicki and partying in the Salvatore boarding house, Damon often paces through patches of sunlight yet does not burn or seem hurt despite the fact that he does not have his ring.

    • We learn that vampires can eat garlic and drink holy water, that crucifixes have no effect on them, and that they show their reflections.

    • Vicki's driver's license shows her address as 749 Birch Street, Mystic Falls, VA 20185. Her birthday is 8/20/1991, but the date the license was issued is shown as 8/20/2000, which would have been on her ninth birthday.

  • QUOTES (15)

      Katherine: Forever is a very long time, you know.
      Stefan: Not long enough.

    • Elena: I gave you today just like you asked. And I understand that you would never to do anything to hurt me, and I promise I will keep your secret, but...I can't be with you, Stefan. I'm sorry I...I just can't.

    • Elena: Is that Damon's ring?
      Stefan: I took it from him. I have to give it back.
      Elena: No! Don't, Stefan. Keep it hidden.
      Stefan: Elena, if I don't give it to him, he'll retaliate in the only way that he knows he can hurt me.
      Elena: And how is that?
      Stefan: By hurting you.

    • Damon: (on the phone as he burns bodies at the cemetery) I want my ring.
      Stefan: Where are you?
      Damon: I'm at the Sizzler. I had the buffet.

    • Vicki: Why don't you have a girlfriend? You're like totally cool and so hot.
      Damon: I know.
      Vicki: Don't you wanna be in love?
      Damon: I've been in love. It's painful and pointless and overrated.
      Vicki: Except when it isn't.

    • Stefan: They extended your leave?
      Damon: I was simply having too much fun to return to battle.

      Stefan: I'll get it back, but I need time.
      Damon: What'd you Fed Ex it to Rome? Where is it? I want my ring, Stefan, or my next stop's Elena's.
      Stefan: I already want you dead. Don't give me another reason to make it happen.
      Damon: Don't give me another reason to rip you apart.
      Stefan: Yeah? Is that gonna be before or after you get your ring back?
      Damon: Just get it.

    • Elena: If you mean me no harm, then you'll go.

      Damon: Don't look at me with those judgy little eyes. Girl's gonna thank me for what I did to her.
      Elena: Did you thank Katherine?
      Damon: Got the whole life story, huh?
      Elena: I got enough.
      Damon: Oh, I doubt that. Tell my brother I'm looking for him. Oh, tip for later, be careful who you invite in the house.
