  • It's losing it's edge.

    TVD was my all time favorate show, but I think it's losing it's edge. Too many Doppelgangers, storylines are becoming strained and stupid and not enough of the best and funniest characters Damon and Katherine.
  • PLOT holes anybody???

    I hated ,HATED this episode, the mythology of this show is soo convoluted ,they can't even respect their own rules,the Silas/Qetsiya/Amara story makes ZERO sense, i dare anyone to explain exactly whats going on there, with the cure and the "other side", and how Qetsiya is even ALIVE.

    not a fan of stefan losing his memory cause i feel thats the writers not wanting stefan to MOVE on and find new love, how long are they gonna drag this love triangle for?? screw this show i'm watching the originalsmoreless
  • Puh-leaze!

    They are just overplaying the whole doppelgangers bit to the max, now they are adding in star-crossed lovers doomed to only be with one another and no one else? Come on! About half way thru the episode I already guess how it was gonna end. Every show always get a least one amnesiac that last a few episode, in this case it was Stefan. Who didn't see that coming when she said "burning thru is Hello! just inviting brain trauma. TVD needs to get a little more original before I switch to a new 8pm television show like OUAT in Wonderland.moreless
  • Doppelgangers are a key!

    Great episode with some explanation but the history of dopplegangers is to many!! Enougth this theme --'
  • the show should be called dopplegangers diaries

    seriously so many dopplegangers in one show!

    I kind of like it and I might already say that season 5 is better than season 4... this show is based on the triangle and now it's become even more complicated because of the whole destiny wanting stefan and elena to be together. I gotta admit I like that part, as you know I am a stelena shipper :) but I also gotta say that I don't mind seeing elena with damon, I mean don't get me wrong, I don't love it but it's interesting to see what she does in that relationship...

    Anyways so the universe wants them back together. let's see if it will work out or if Delena can indeed fight destiny.

    And I am really excited for the next couple of episodes. Now stefan has lost his memory and I think it will be quite amazing to see how he will manage life now and Damon and Elena. especially since he can't remember them and can't remember being in love with Elena.

    I give this episode an 8.5. :-)moreless
