    • Vampiree!

      I love this show .

      & the part I hate the most is when Bonnie act like a hard-ass.

      Like come on now .

      Elena only did it to save him .

      If not bonnie why wouldn't you just go your witchy spell and save is life .

      Thats all ready messup.

    • Fan-freakin'-tastic!

      They've done it yet again! This just gets better and better with every episode. And truthfully, I'm becoming a huge fan of Klaus. Can't wait till he serves Stefan a dish of that villain medicine!

      Damon slow playing it with Elena is just brilliant on his part, well done mate.

      And the ending...WHOA! I wanna watch it again already.
    • Love this show

      The show just keeps getting more and more interesting. They still have some plot holes that need explaining- like who was the original doppelganger before Katherine- but the story itself is getting more interesting.

      There are of course still annoying characters- Bonnie, I'm looking in your direction- but the show is great!

      Ps: is it just me, or does Stefan look especially hot this season? I never thought I'd say this since Ian has ALWAYS been the love of my life (after Tom welling of course)!moreless
    • Our Town

      Our Town was a perfect and very entertaining episode of The Vampire Diaries because it had my adrenaline rushing, my heart pumping, and the blood running fast through my veins with excitement, surprise, and amazement as the story unfolded. Stefan and Damon decide it's time to get Klaus to get rid of his Hybrids or they will, but Stefan goes to a whole new level of darkness as he kidnaps Elena as part of his plot. The town council members are awkwardly accepting of situations now that their kids are turned to Vampire or Hybrid. It was nice of Caroline's friends to come through for her on her birthday/funeral. There were so many small great things about this episode, to many to list. I thought it was interesting how events played out and I certainly look forward to watching the next episode!!!!!!!!!moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Klaus: You have to adjust your perception of time when you become a vampire, Caroline. Celebrate the fact that you're no longer bound by trivial human conventions. You're free.
        Caroline: No. I'm dying.
        Klaus: And I could let you die...if that's what you want. If you really believe your existence has no meaning. I've thought about it myself once or twice over the centuries, truth be told. But I'll let you in on a little secret. There's a whole world out there waiting for you, great cities and art and music...genuine beauty. And you can have all of it. You can have a thousand more birthdays. All you have to do is ask.
        Caroline: I don't want to die.

      • Damon: You want to take Klaus, you want to beat the villain, you gotta be smarter.
        Stefan: No, no. To beat the villain, Damon, you have to be the better villain.

      • Alaric: I thought Stefan saved your life.
        Damon: He did.
        Alaric: And now he's willing to risk it just to see how far he can push Klaus?
        Damon: Seems so.
        Alaric: Well, is his humanity on or off?
        Damon: Yeah, I'm thinking there's another option here in play, a bit of a dimmer switch, which is a huge problem.
        Alaric: Why?
        Damon: Because I can't predict how far he's willing to go until somebody gets killed.
        Alaric: Suddenly you care who lives or dies?
        Damon: I have a small list.

      • Klaus: You see, if you continue to threaten me, I'm going to be forced to retaliate. Kill people. And it'll get messy again.
        Stefan: Do whatever you want. I don't really care. Or you know what? Maybe I do. Yeah. Yeah, maybe I care so much that I drop Elijah in the Arctic.
        Klaus: Well, maybe I'd be willing to lose one brother if it meant killing yours.
        Stefan: Try me. Let's find out.

      • Stefan: Destroying Klaus is all I have left.
        Elena: You had me!
        Stefan: I lost you the minute I left town with him.

      • Elena: You can't kiss me again.
        Damon: I know.
        Elena: I can't. It's not right.
        Damon: It's right. Just not right now.

      • Stefan: (to Klaus) You know, I don't like your hybrid friends. They're everywhere. Kind of like fleas. I want them gone.
