"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."
Oh, Damon. You make my heart pound. And those words weren't even delivered to me.
Aside from the fact this episode had way too many Elena-crying-over-Stefan moments, I was particularly delighted with this tiny montage between Damon and Elena in the 39th minute.
Thank you Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson, for delivering a near-flawless episode, yet again.
So, I have taken it upon myself to write a little (ha, well, I'll try to keep it small) blog after each episode of the Vampire Diaries - not as a recap (who wants those? You could easily watch the episode for yourself, it'd be way more entertaining!) but rather as a summary/commentary.
What can I say? I'm a sucker for this show. No pun intended (alright, maybe slightly, but everyone does it).
May I just say that Joseph Morgan becomes hotter in every take. Not even every week - every time he's on my SCREEN I manage to have a little heart flutter.
This week was no different.
One shot, in particular, when werewolf Ray comes back to life, and Klaus says - "Excellent timing Ray. Very dramatic", I felt this devilish smile creep across my face.
And then Klaus says, "Wrong choice" *insert biting arm and then feeding blood to sad werewolf girl*
Followed by "She'll thank me for that later" (quickly becoming one of Klaus' trademark statements, in my opinion) to;
"Okay, who's next?" (with blood dripping off his hand and arm).
After this little exchange, Klaus' face changed in a way that made me slightly hot, I won't lie (check for shimmery gold eyes, dripping blood and fangs extended... hmm).
Thank you Joseph Morgan for making possibly the most evil character I've seen in awhile (hybrid or not) into an outrageously sexy creature. Don't stop, whatever you do.
My next comments are to do with bad-boy-still-remorseful-and-broody Stefan. Firstly, last week I blogged and said that the phone call was a bit too lame for my liking. This week, as a direct follow-on, I would like to retract that statement (partially).
Stefan was part suave this week - calm, cool and collected around Klaus - and then partially depressing - c'mon, saving Damon's life? Again? It was a bittersweet moment, I'll give you that - but it was much smoother this week and I liked his transitioning here. You could see some of the old Stefan fighting through, and while I still love his bad boy persona, I didn't mind seeing his true fight to keep both his brother and Elena safe.
Speaking of keeping Elena safe - UM WHAT THE. So Klaus can't create his hybrid army because Elena is still alive? In other words, if Klaus finds out, or somewhat remotely suspects that Elena is still kicking - big no no. Stefan, Elena, Damon, Alaric, Jeremy, yeah the entire cast will most likely end up dead as a result of Klaus' rage (anyone else getting the feeling this will either be the mid-season climax or season finale drama?)
Anyway, I'm sure there will be more of that to come. Now, as for Jeremy, Vicki and Anna - oh yes, and Matt now too - I'm kind of bored by this ghost story line. Maybe it's just the fact that I am a Supernatural freak and so seeing ghosts in anything else seems ridiculous to me... OR maybe it's because the ghost thing has been outdone a bit in the past. Whatever the reason, I'm not really digging it. That being said, if Aunt Jenna comes back as one of Jeremy's ghosts I might change my mind. Sara Canning is spectacular and I cried for a day when they killed off her character last season (probably the only character I truly wish hadn't of died). Thus, I hope the writers bring her back for a stint. That'd be nice.
Well, I'm almost done, but I HAVE to mention Tyler telling his mum about being a werewolf - or rather, SHOWING her - and the subsequent appearance of Caroline's DAD. Was anyone else like 'Wtf mate?' because I sure was. I did think it was kinda sweet though, Tyler having such a mental at his mum over her calling Caroline a monster, that he dragged her into his secret transformation lair to show her who the 'real' monster is. Kudos to Michael Trevino, such a sweetheart. Let's keep him around.
Uh yeah, and Caroline's dad?! Didn't see that one coming. Gotta say though, Jack Coleman as Mr Forbes? Love it! It is sort of hard to picture him outside of Heroes as 'Noah Bennet', but I am super excited to see how he portrays the runaway-gay-father. Bring it on Season 3, you already have everything going for you, let's keep that momentum UP!
Alas, I have reached the end of this blog. But please, if you are a TVD fan I would love to hear your say :) Did you like 3.02? Looking forward to next week? I'm all ears! :)
