  • UNBELIEVEABLE!!!! 10/10

    This has got to be the best episode of The Vampire Diaries so far. Absolutely Amazing. I was seriously glued to it from beginning to end.

    My highlights of the episode are... you know what I loved everything about this episode.

    From Damon torturing and killing Mason Lockwood to Katherine compelling Matt to his death in the end.

    There were things that were so unexpected that it just made you go OMG! (jaw dropping), like Stefan unknowingly jumping into a well full of vervain (and Elena saving him, thats my girl)

    to Aunt Jenna stabbing herself after it is revealed that shes been compelled by Katherine all along. I loved the moments between Caroline and her mother, it was really touching and sad at the same time. And I have to say Caroline as an Vampire was a great move on the writers part.

    One part in the episode that really broke my heart was Stefan and Elena breaking up. Truly heartbreaking to watch.

    I can't wait till next episode. The Vampire Diaries is THE show to be watching right now.moreless
  • Buffy, The Vampire Diaries style.

    After Jeremy joins Alaric in Stefan's little band, Damon seeks Bonnie's help in order to capture Mason as Caroline seeks her mother's company trying to reach an understanding of their own, a neat parallel is presented as the last of the Bennetts and the eldest Salvatore find common ground at the same time as Forbes mother and daughter do.

    In Damon's defense, he does wait until Bonnie leaves the room to start torturing Mason.

    And, in "judgy"'s defense, she does reach an understanding with Caroline before the episode is over. However their friendship isn't washed away, Caroline washes away her mother's memories along with their newfound understanding as the only way she has to protect her friends, like Tyler Lockwood put it, the girl has heart above all.

    Speaking of which, in one of the most poignant scenes of the episode, Elena breaks Stefan's heart after their latest stunt almost costs her aunt Jenna. Also without a heart? Mason Lockwood, which would've upset Katherine if only she didn't have a spare werewolf and already compelled Matt to get himself killed in order to secure it.moreless
  • Plan B

    Plan B was a great episode of The Vampire Diaries. The stories were great, and the way each one played out was interesting. There was lots of drama, and a little torture, and some drastic turn of events. Plan B is a dangerous contingency plan of Katherines, and it is full of pain and tragedy. It was interesting to see Caroline growing as a vampire on the good track, and then to see her relationship with both her mother and Bonnie start to improve. Though her mother won't remember. I thought that the Damon and Mason story line was good. Damon is still true to being himself. It was really nice to see more of Jeremy. I am really excited to see what happens next, as usual the ending has left us in suspense!moreless
  • Yay,the witch is back. An unlikely pair materializes. The heroine of the show starts to exhibit Katherine tendencies.

    I love "judgey" Bonnie. She's the only one on the show not fawning over vampires. The conversation of Bonnie and Elena was way overdue, and I'm still waiting for Caroline and Bonnie's conversation. Always enjoy Damon and Bonnie interactions. He'll eventually win her over. Damon and Jeremy team up. What an unlikely pair? Let's see who influences who. Damon kills Mason leaving Taylor the lone wolf (we know eventually he will become a werewolf). Elena and Stefan breakup again and for real this time. Really like this couple, they fit better than Elena and Damon. I found some of Elena's actions a little uncomfortable from staring at Stefan in bed and texting him every five minutes because she wasn't in the in crowd of the discussion with Damon, Bonnie and Stefan. I'm beginning to like Caroline again, the moments with her Mom in the basement were great. Glad her Mom is still alive. And who saw what Katherine planned coming regarding Elena's aunt. I didn't. This show really doesn't mind offing people, I barely got to even know Mason. This season is interesting because really is Katherine doing all this for Stefan, that can't be.moreless
  • Katherine succeeds in her mission to split up Elena and Stefan.

    It was heartbreaking to watch Elena and Stefan split up. It was very well done, I must say, especially when Damon showed genuine remorse and sympathy about it.

    Yay for Jeremy getting involved! And he seems hellbent on stopping Katherine after poor Jenna stabbed herself. The scooby gang has officially banded together now that Bonnie has returned. I missed her.

    Matt can't die! I know he seems like the outcast, but I hope he becomes involved once the gang stop him from hurting Tyler.

    And I really wish that Caroline hadn't compelled her mother, it was such a lovely scene to have her accept Caroline for who she is. But Caroline wants to protect Stefan and Damon, so she had to compell her. I guess there has to be a certain level of mystery involved in the show.

    As for Mason dying, meh, I didn't really like his character. Can't wait for the next episode!moreless
