  • I'm "so-so" on this episode

    8.5
    I think if they left out the Forwood break up,this was a great had alot of epic/shocking moments such as Nadia being Katherine's daughter that was taken away from her centuries only thing that ruined this episode was Tyler & Caroline breaking shipped them for almost 3 years and they break up because his hate for Klaus is stronger than his love for Caroline?WTF!If they were gonna break up just an episode after reuniting,why did they bring Tyler back in the first place when us Forwood fans were glad to see him back and were hoping he was staying this time?They were better off just having his last moment on the show being the prom glad Katherine is still the only reason I'm still watching!moreless
  • OK Klaus, you can kill Tyler now

    9.5
    Being aired on 31st Oct, I was hoping for more of a halloween theme, but alas another random costume party will have to suffice. Lots of awesome twists and turns in the plot this week. For such an old vamp, Damon is a little too nieve, he's far too trusting of Silas! Poor Caroline, It's really is time she called Klaus and said "It's OK, you can kill Tyler now" Shocked to see Katherines daughter appear, more shocked that Damon handed Katherine over to be killed by Silas, beyond shocked that she didn't die!moreless

    Dang this episode was fraught with so many twists I nearly had whiplash by the end of it!



    I do not like Professor Maxfield at all he seems so disturbed even more so than Professor Shane, I hated to watch what he did poor Jesse!



    I felt so bad for Caroline she so did not deserve such treatment I so hope she bounces back!



    I also thought Damon's plan was a little far-fetched and do not think it will work at all judging from next week's plot I doubt that it is going too.



    Watching Katherine finding out what her connection to Nadia was blew my mind! I hope we see more of their interactions!



    I also like seeing Elena writing in her diary again even if she is constantly writing about death it's nice to see the diary aspect of the show be brought back in and I hope it continues I've kinda missed it



    Seeing what happened to Katherine after what Damon did to her was pretty awesome and another highlight for me!



    I cannot wait 4 next week to see how everything plays out!
