  • Another great episode

    Another wonderful episode with great acting from Claire Holt (Rebekah) Just a couple of maybe plot holes stopping me from giving it a 10.

    Last season, everyone was shocked to discover that killing an original would kill all the other vampires in their line, so while helping Rebekah find the cure for herself has no one wondered what effect an original being 'cured' would do to the line? No one thought of this even when discussing ramming it down Klaus' throat?

    Katherine warns Klaus of a plot to kill him in the hope he would stop hunting her down. Really? It would make more sense not to tell him and enjoy your freedom when he's dead!

    Apart from the above, the show was as funny and amazing as ever.moreless
  • Finally taking Elena down a peg.

    I miss Elena as a human but when she turned her feelings off she turned into a monster. I hate her now, it was so great seeing Bonnie take her down twice. Hopefully Elena will now turn her feelings on so enough and she will want to be human ago. This was the best episode in a long time, it feels like pieces are coming together.
  • I am so tired of Elena

    I wish that Elena would stop being so annoying. She was acting like a spoiled child. I know her emotions are turned off and that she lost her brother, which is why they are turned off in the first place. But she is acting more like Katherine, it's just annoying. and I am so tired of the Silas story. His face reminded me of a mix between Dracula and Beast from the old Beauty and the Beast. I thought he was suppose to be some badass witch?!?! And when he appeared as Jeremy, I actually felt sad. And when he danced with Bonnie I got all misty eyed. Then Elena, who seemed very affected by the dance she shared with Stefan, due to what she said to Rebecca, wanted to kill Bonnie and I just got confused, which is odd considering how many times I have actually watched the me its when Silas started showing up everywhere, being different people I got more confused and even thought that Tyler was Silas because of how fast Tyler disappeared. Still think that, btw. Anyway, I liked the pictures that they had flowing on the screen during the dance and I loved how Caroline went to Klaus for help, even if it was for a dress and I loved the smile he gave still ship them and will always ship know that this review is late but I couldn't find the recaps for of this is imomoreless
  • Did i Miss something?!

    which episode did bonnie complete the triangle and caroline stab that lady?? I've never seen that before.. but this episode was awesome I LOVED the Klaus Caroline scene!!
  • What direction is this episode heading exactly?

    As the title suggest, i find this episode confusing. Its almost like they have no idea which direction they want to move forward to so just randomly throw in some scenes. Like when they throw in the scenes for regarding Tyler, its so short and really doesnt move the story forward. I mean ok, Caroline and Tyler still love each other and hes really sweet to come back to see her and Klaus is kind enough to let him get a head start.

    I also find it weird when Caroline went to Klaus to find her a dress and Klaus didnt wanna talk to her. The show failed to explain why exactly he was feeling that way. And where did the dress come from eventually?

    And is Jeremy coming back? Or Tyler? Is it really necessary to make Silas's looks a big deal?moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Rebekah: I thought about what you said, about being good, and you're right. It won't be easy but it's worth trying.
      Matt: I don't understand why my opinion is so important to you.
      Rebekah: Because you're everything that I want to be. You're loyal, honest, kind. People root for you to succeed. Elena even died for you.
      Matt: I'm a busboy, Rebekah. Okay? It's not like I'm out saving the world.
      Rebekah: But you're human. You're so...beautifully human.

    • Damon: Beautiful dress.
      Elena: Thank you. I stole it.

    • Rebekah: Elijah, being a human means a fresh start. I can grow old and have a family and fill my days with meaning, knowing that each one matters.
      Klaus: (laughs)Well, that was poetic.
      Elijah: Well, if you can provide us with a more compelling reason for wanting the cure, Klaus, please.
      Klaus: Silas can appear as anyone. He got inside my thoughts, convinced me I was dying. He will torment me until I give him the cure.
      Rebekah: And in doing so, he will break down the wall to the Other Side.
      Klaus: So it doesn't trap him there when he dies. He wants to reunite with his lost soul mate. (to Elijah) You of all lovesick fools should applaud his devotion.
      Rebekah: He will open the floodgates for every supernatural being that has ever died.
      Klaus: Including our dear brothers, Kol and Finn. We'll have our family back.
      Rebekah: Oh, please. You hated Kol and you kept Finn in a box for most of his life.
      Klaus: Elijah, please.
      Elijah: Your personal discomfort might not be sufficient reason for putting the entire world in jeopardy, Klaus. I think our sister deserves a shot at happiness.
