  • New chapter

    A fresh new storyline is emerging, just what this show needs. Lots of shocks and surprises, loved it!
  • Couldn't decide whether this was a great episode or very much a "filler"

    8.5
    There were some interesting developments in this episode, namely the revelation about Elena's father and Damon's story, including the discovery by Elena that he is stlil alive. Must agree with dimakosrou that it seemed like Damon could have done more to get Enzo out, if not by getting the keys, then by dragging one of the humans to his cage so that Enzo could drink and get stronger,' that way, perhaps they could have broken through the bars between them... It would be to see Damon to finally rescue Enzo.moreless
  • Get the keys! Get the keys! Get the keys!

    6.5
    *CONTAINS SPOILERS!*



    Despite this episode has an intriguing plot with Damon's past, I can't really understand how Damon didn't think to just grab the keys and unlock the cell for his friend to get out. Or why the Augustin meetings every year didn't have any protection measures, you have 2 vamps in a cell, you can't let the room without some darts guns with vervain. Big logic holes. Yet the episode was good (Stefan and Kathrine had interesting moments) but partially destroyed, once again, by the stupid writing this show occasionally has...



    PS. I can't wait to see how Enzo survived, I was sure he died.moreless

    9.0
    Wow this was so amazing I loved the juxtaposition between Damon's remember his imprisonment in the 50s and Caroline & Katherine helping Stefan confront his PTSD issues!



    Seeing Katherine & Stefan 'reconnect' in more ways than one was pretty awesome and very intriguing development LOL!



    I loved all the revelations about Elena's dad & what Damon in order to escape and what his revenge entailed that really blew my mind and was another fantastic twist and once again proved Damon to truly be a totally complex and badass character.



    The ending was pretty awesome it was the perfect cliffhanger



    I am super excited 4 next week!moreless
