    I love Damon in this episode.

    And Carol Lockwood finding out about Tyler.
  • Not good at all

    O like the show but today it was so boring
  • Not sure how i feel about this show

    I love Vampires..but the whole Hybrid storyline is losing me a bit..I will give it a chance and continue with my dvr'ed episodes. Wish I could rate the episodes the old way..just the numbers
  • WOW just WOW this episode assured me that this season isbecomingbetter and better and that its going to be an awesome season for TVD.

    First of all i thank God for making me watch TVD instead of TBBT because it was much better than the 2 episodes of TBBT. When i saw the ending to season 2 of TVD i thought they cant make a season better than that one but i was wrong when this season premiered it was amazing with manydifferent things. One of the good things this episode has is the suspense and that you don't know what is going to happen next like when Damon made the wolf go after him to save Elena i thought that he might get bitten every time the wolf got closer because TVD writers weren't afraid to do that as we saw in the whole second season but Stefan rescued him and that gave Damon the hope he needed to save his brother from Klaus. By the end of the episode we found out that Klaus's army is dieing because he didn't actually kill Elena as she was brought to life but he still doesn't know that and i have a feeling that he will know soon and will go after her but how and when its still amystery to me. Since season 3 started they ended each episode with someone trying to hurt Caroline my favorite girl character but this time it was her father. Can't wait for more TVD episodes i dont want this series to end anytime soon.moreless
  • The Hybrid

    The Hybrid was a superb episode of The Vampire Diaries and I really enjoyed watching this episode because it had a lot of character and plot development. The smaller story lines were woven together and had a great flow and pace. Stephan and Klaus had some great scenes and I wonder what Klaus is ultimately planning. I also liked how Damon and Elena interacted and how she showed her vulnerability for Damon. Mrs. Lockwood learns a shocking truth and has a touching scene with her son which was awesome as you could see how horrible she felt about what she had done. Caroline was greeted by an unexpected figure from her past and I can't wait to watch the next episode to see how it all plays out!!!!!!!!moreless

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Alaric: (As he and Elena walk) In a couple hours the full moon is going to rise just above that ridge. If Tyler's right, that's where the pack will be.
      Elena: You were a boy scout weren't you?
      Alaric: Shut up.

    • Damon: What changed your mind, Elena?
      Elena: I didn't want to see you get hurt, ok? I was...I was worried about you.
      Damon: Thanks.
      Elena: Yes, I worry about you. Why do you even have to hear me say it?
      Damon: Because when I drag my brother from the edge and deliver him back to you, I want you to remember the things you felt while he was gone.

    • Elena: You're better at it than you think, you know?
      Alaric: Oh, boy, are you a sucker for a lost cause or what?
      Elena: You're not a lost cause, Ric. You're just...lost. But so is Jeremy. And so am I. Our family is gone. We don't have anybody. I'm sorry, but you don't have anybody either, so...we're kind of it for each other.

    • Alaric: You wanna hunt down a pack of werewolves on a full moon?
      Elena: We'll be out of there before the moon is full. If you don't come with me, I'm going by myself. What? You're the one who told me that I could handle things on my own now.
      Alaric: Yeah, I meant like frozen dinners and SATs.
