I am at a loss.
Exciting? Surprising? Amazing? Epic? Awesome? Enticing? Delicious? Thrilling? Fabulous? Shocking? Confusing? Incredible?
I can't decide which describes this episode best. And, if it's possible, I actually think this episode was better than last week's.
Now now. Before you throw pitchforks at me, let me throw my thoughts your way.
Firstly, cute moments.
Damon and Elena [kitchen scene]: Oh, how cute were they. Playful punches, bantering over the 'old family recipe' for chili. And then Damon lingering just a tiny bit too long on Elena's neck when he grabbed the necklace. I swear, I LIVE for these Delena moments.
Tyler and Caroline [bedroom scene]: While the passion was interrupted, I loved the little kiss on the head and the "You reek!" spiel. Those two would make charming children (Hmm. I wonder if that actually IS in the works, as Julie Plec teased. I wouldn't mind at all. Thoughts anyone?)
Klaus, Stefan and Bex [shopping scene]: Klaus: "Nice one, good work." Stefan: "You're the one who pulled the dagger out of her." Naw, I love Klefan. Joseph and Paul must have such a good time on set, the two have incredible chemistry, even as blood-thirsty vampire and hybrid.
Katherine and Stefan [the sidewalk scene]: Stefan: "Well if the most diabolical woman I know can't seem to figure it out, then I must be doing something right." Katherine: "Uh huh, oh I forgot. You're bad now. Don't get too cocky." and her :"And I've heard about that sister. Be careful, she'll ruin you." Stefan: "Happy to know you still care." I love these two. I love Katherine. I want her in more episodes. I know in the books she dies, I seriously hope that doesn't happen in the TV show. Like, ever.
Jeremy and Anna [bedroom 'Tell me you can hear me!' scene]: It was super sad when Anna cried at the end, let me just say. But the "You were dreaming about me?" - gorgeous. Surprisingly enough, I am getting into the ghost storyline. I think it might have to do with the fact Malese Jow is as cute as a button. I just want to pick that girl up and give her a hug. Superb job, thank you for your entrancing performance. Team Anna woo!
Jeremy and Bonnie [the hug]: Anna ruined it, yeah, but any time a boy picks up a girl for a hug - delightful.
Bill Forbes and his tolerance to mind compulsion. Umm, wtf? What is up with that? I cannot work out what his deal is. Suggestions and ideas anyone? I'm all ears.
The kiss between Bex and Stefan. Is it just me, or was it annoying more than anything? I don't know why, but I didn't like it.
Vicki. Well, the references to Vicki. I don't really understand what's going on there, or the whole 'bad ju ju' thing Anna seems to 'feel'. Smeh, we'll find out. All in good time, my lovelies.
The witch wanting the talisman. What does that little necklace DO exactly? The fact she strapped Stefan to a table to cut the knowledge out of him must mean it's pretty damn important. Can't wait to find out.
Katherine showing up as Elena (yet again) and taking Damon on a road trip. Firstly, can you say 'bad timing'? Stefan and Klaus rocking up in Mystic Falls just as Damon decides to run off with Katherine? How frustrating! BUT I can't wait to see more Datherine scenes. (P.S. How did Bonnie not know that was Katherine? Seriously girl! You're a witch! Focus!)
Caroline's comments about 'Switching Salvatore's'. Good on you Caroline. Elena needs to face up to these feelings. But I definitely understand why she won't - she doesn't want to be Katherine. AND she still loves Stefan, despite the cries from the Delena fans. Ease up chickens, it'll happen, just enjoy the ride.
Alaric telling Damon off. Ric the legend. And his man-power at the end? Wanting to join the council? Good work Alaric. You totes deserve to be on that council, now that you've cleaned up your drinking act. New Elena/Jeremy daddy? I like the idea!
Klaus, Stefan and Bex drinking the people together. I love the 'brat' teasing. And I love this threesome. Stefan would have made the perfect original, just saying.
Caroline kicking Damon's ass. What a cute ass it is.... ahem. No but 'Go Caroline' :D I LOVE seeing her in the 'tough girl' role, rather than the victim. And the fact that she went to Tyler for comfort doesn't deter from that, just makes it better. Love you Candice Accola.
Damon's blood bender. You know why I love this? (Other than the fact that Damon could do anything and I'd still think he was the hottest vampire alive/dead) Because he's trying to get through to Elena - he's NOT Stefan, and who would want him to be? We love Damon and his bad-ass attitude. Even if he becomes more 'human', I still want him to keep his vampire-ness. Otherwise - what's the point of having a show called 'The Vampire Diaries'. It'd have to be 'The Human Diaries' and that's infinitely more boring.
Caroline and her dad at the end. One epic sad moment. Bill: "You're a vampire sweetheart. I don't think you'll ever be okay again." AH! My heart broke. Poor, poor Caroline. Thank goodness Mum's on the winning team.
Alright, think that's it my dears. Thank you so much for reading, I appreciate it :) And please, sound off in the comments, or tweet me! @jayneymoo and @janeymoo, you can grab me on either!
