Episode 26

  1. ignore spelling errors and what not. it’s late/early….

    I thought you were going to say that it was booty Alta. It looks like booty.

    Summer shows I’m waiting for are True Blood, The Walking Dead and Person’s Unknown (if they even bring it back).

    She’s a cat. I’m laughing just hearing that. Maybe it’s only in the pilot. Oh Alta doesn’t like the quips. Lol
    The dialogue is booty. Lol I’m going to check out game of thrones … people keep effing spoiling me. I also listen to JAJP

    Lets talk about TVD now!
    Carol Lockwood cuts the rope! LOL
    You love Blood Brothers! Kidding. I don’t like the flashback episodes.

    Before they neutered Katherine.

    Damon is there still trying to annoy Elena into his arms. And he’s tying to guilt her back into him.

    Damon is a sucky friend but so is Elena sometimes and I guess this is how she wants the friends she abuses to treat her when she effes up a little?

    That is Stalking, Alta. Stefan need to put a stop to that. RICK WHAT WHAT WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?
    And why aren’t they having the party at Alaric’s house? That would have made more sense.

    Apparently Jenna is still pissed at Damon for him making out with her niece, but Elena’s not as mad at Damon for killing her brother. Someone should tell Jenna what Damon did to Jeremy. She wouldn’t let his ass come over then I bet you. Now matter how good Alaric lays it down. Okay!

    Le sigh … Mason how I miss you. Also Mason’s mom might know something about it too since she supposedly had the moonstone.

    Stefan should get a live journal. Smh. And the blood in the glass looks more like juice. Blood is thicker as they say.

    Their families just have a lock on their jobs or something. Maybe it’s a curse or something. I told you! Suck Friend!

    Thank you for defending the south … SMH Alta you know why they are not going to show that side of the south. Smh They are probably afraid that people are going to stop watching because it’s getting too uncomfortable, but that’s bullshit, because that is the history of our county and you can’t cherry pick the part you think are better to tell. I want to see Emily in her “slave quarters” cooking up some voodoo over a cauldron or something! Speaking of True Blood there was a scene in the show where two characters where tripping on V and they were traveling back through their magical roots, getting history on the magics their ancestors would practice. Lafayette saw one of his great grand mothers teaching her daughter a spell that would keep the master of the house from coming after her in the night. That is what I want to see but VD will never show it. /rant. … for now.

    I agree what your saying about Damon. I so doubt that Damon Salvatore was in a march for freedom and equal rights. :\

    Who the heck said Katherine and Emily were “friends”? O_o

    I would love a full on witch episode.

    7 original? That’s a lot of white peoples. ;X just sayin’!

    Katherine tricked that dude. She lied to him.
    Ugh Flash back. Everybody wants Katherine. Wait George was activated right? I don’t think he liked her really. I think he wanted to get close to get information or to keep tabs on him. He did say “what did he want?” I’m having a thing about the accents. Why aren’t they thicker? Shouldn’t they sound more southern or shouldn’t the sound like where ever they came from before they built on MF?

    Jeremy heard that Damon was going to be there and is hanging out with Bonnie (who they forgot to invite … Elena = Suck friend example #2).

    Caroline needs distraction so they invite her to a party where the guy who tried to kill her -last time they were together- is in attendance … Seriously, Elena go hang out with Caroline (Bonnie/Jeremy) at the grill and band Damon from your house. Because the last time he was there he killed your brother in it! They’re gonna make me curse! Elena … please ask Bonnie to do an uninvited spell. I’m sure she would love to help you with that (but of course she would reinvite Damon over next episode so …).

    Alaric does not live at that house … No. GTFO. That’s funny. Alaric didn’t trust Damn enough to invite him over to his place for drinks.

    “Be nice!” My head exploded STOP WRITING HER LIKE THIS!

    Mason! 😀 he gets cuter on the rewatch.

    Alaric ….. Lol

    “Damon comes in and ruins every thing.” SO TRUE! OMG Mason is adorable. *sigh* And at this point Mason can sense that Damon is a vampire. Mason is a big person. Uhf!

    Damon’s I’m a dick line is my favorite. :X

    When I fist saw this scene with Elena calling Stefan I thought she was calling Bonnie, because that would make sense to me. :[ NICE! YES BONNIE DO LIKE CAROLINE! That smile is because Caroline isn’t talking about Elena’s problems. What?

    Ugh! Flashback. Snore. That painting on the wall really intrigued me.

    Damon sure does pounce. Lol There is something wrong with Damon. I think Damon hated Stefan before all of this. “poor Damon” wow.

    Yup she was raping Stefan. :[ just like Alisha/Curtis.

    There was no food at this BBQ. I’m hungry just watching it. Jenna likes Alcohol.

    Elena does flinch. It makes me uncomfortable. I think if was in the script that Damon would have reacted to it.

    Silver. convenient. Men get around in the olden days too. Anna came up with a scenario that made sense to her. Because Katherine was running around. Pearl was talking a like she saw it … retcon. She did get John and the council to kill all the vampires in the tomb. She Master planned it. This is why there was no reunion because kat too care of it.

    Lol Nina Dobrev impersonation!

    Mason and the pie! Alaric was given him the look. SHOUT OUTS! Frisky! Lol
    Also Alaric was sitting mighty close to Mason… what would have happened if he freaked out? Throat slashed. *shrugs*. Another thing, at this point Jenna’s supposed to be on vervain so I guess that the cat would have been out of the bag if the writers didn’t dumb down Jenna and make her believe some BS story about Mason being on meth or crack. *shrugs*.

    I love when Mason calls Damon a Lady killer. Best comeback

    “Would I be the worst friend in the world if I abandoned you and” — FUCK YES! You don’t even need to finish the sentence Elena.
    No Elena you’re being clingy. Because Stefan cannot take care of himself, he’s been alive/undead for over 100 years. I think he can last a day with out you Elena. :X Omg … smh.

    Do not like flash backs! Elena and Damon … the brain trust. I don’t feel sorry for Damon. 😡 EEEEEW gross the blood kiss. Didn’t Emily say something about Stefan being innocent. Maybe he says demon because he’s with Katherine and plus Damon’s been taking all these cheap shot at him all night long! WHERE’S THE FOOD IN THIS BBQ!? I DIDN’T EVEN SEE A GRILL!

    I agree with the bullshit calls. :] Damon is prejudice against werewolves. Also the eye acting is getting OUT OF HAND!

    Bonnie is the glue who hold them together. Smeyezing, Elena was. Product placement. As soon as the car came on screen. Lol Elena is Isobel’s daughter with that delivery.

    Alaric’s look is that Jenna and Mason almost got together. He is Damon’s butt buddy. Poor Jenna is drunk. Damon is not that charming! TRUFAX!

    Too bad Elena doesn’t care about her friends like she cares about the Salvatore brothers. :[

    EPIC! Lmao! I’m dying.

    Also the reason Angel fell for Buffy (I think) was because she reminded him somewhat of his maker Darla. Darla even says to Angel: Buffy wasn’t happiness, she was just new. and I love that line!
    Angelus and Darla were serious.

    I think Bonnie would kill Damon at that point. OMG Elena and Caroline could bond over the abuse Damon put them through that would be sooooo good.

    It was irresponsible of her to leave. D: I did! He talked and Caroline has a preference so you know! *wiggles eyebrows*

    Mason was about go to the bar. And Damon and that knife. I wish Mason attacked Damon after he stabbed him. GASP THE MARTIS DIE! D=

    I have that ability too! We must be mutants! I am so contrary that I will want to know about the “bad guys” motives as appose to who the writers say are the “heroes”. I think bad guys are much more interesting and I’m not talking about Damon. I wanted to know about the Martins and Mason and Jules and the Bennett’s and Bree. I’d rather hear about these characters. There seems to only me one POV on this show and it’s boring as hell!. I hate it and staining for other POV to cling onto!

    Also Bonnie has problems with vampires because it’s in her blood just like it’s in werewolf’s blood to hunt them in wolf form. When Bonnie touches a vampire she feels death and it’s a warning because Vampires are death. People have been dropping like flies ever since the Salvatore’s showed up. Okay!

    He killed Jules too!

    Why are you spoiling me! OMG! Lol
    They think it’s hot because Stefan restrains himself.

    Holy shit she did all that just to hang out with her rape victim and walk down memory lane and convince him that he loves her. This is so effed up! I love it! I think Katherine raised up her tolerance level.

    Doppelgangers meet for the first time was so anticlimactic.

    Maybe “Katherine” was trying to get sympathy from Klaus by playing the victim. But I will agree that it seemed like Elena was just sent back in time to talk with Elijah.

    In comparison Paul Wesley is brilliant.

    Katerina as Emily was subtly good. Katerina did have the bonus of leaning from another actor whereas Nina doesn’t have that luxury. Nina had to make the character and Kat had Bianca to model from so it was a bit harder for Nina probably. :X Elena is bland. :X

    Stefan was stuck in a basement alone with his rapist … damn.

    Best friend … my ass. I feel like this is why Caroline is so aggressive/mean to Elena. She has these issues that are never addressed and they are coming out. And I can see why Caroline was the way she was when telling Elena about her future with Stefan. Katherine and Caroline … that is so scary. It must be so traumatizing.

    I was thinking how Tyler seems to bookend the episode. He’s there for the beginning and end and that’s it … okay.

    LOL Plot = not that good.
    Lol same conversation with the poor lockwoods.

    I want Caroline to stop apologizing!

    The writers defanged Katherine.

    The fight was fake too. They weren’t arguing about anything real.

    Call BS GURL! Caroline was working it. She’s not a bad actor. Bonnie would have noticed because Bonnie called BS when Elena tried to sugarcoat they way she and Bonnie leave her out of the conversation. I think I fell in love with her then. That’s why Bonnie wasn’t in this episode. 1) she hates/dislikes vampires. 2) she would have seen through Caroline and called her on it. And maybe Caroline would have confessed and not be forced to check in with the person who murdered her.

    Ugh flashback! I can’t.

    The end Finally!

    I liked Caroline/Mason.

    I love when Mason calls Damon a lady killer.

    The Salvatore’s are annoying. Lol \o/

    • I’ve never heard of Persons Unknown. What is it about?

      Lafayette saw one of his great grand mothers teaching her daughter a spell that would keep the master of the house from coming after her in the night. That is what I want to see but VD will never show it. /rant. … for now.

      That would be so good!!!! Ugh. Will this show perpetually disappoint me when it comes to the witches? Smh.

      Who the heck said Katherine and Emily were “friends”? O_o

      You’d be surprised. Or maybe not. Some Elena or Katherine fans have said that Emily and Katherine were friends. I’ve spoken to some of them. They talk about how Emily totally betrayed her friend (making Emily, of course, the bad guy).

      When I fist saw this scene with Elena calling Stefan I thought she was calling Bonnie, because that would make sense to me.

      And that’s exactly why it didn’t happen. It made too much sense. Lmao.

      I don’t think he hated Stefan before Katherine. We definitely saw how the relationship between them was like before she landed in MF. He was probably a little resentful of him because he got the father’s favor, but I don’t think he hated him.

      There was food at the barbecue. We only saw the pie though. Lmao. Alaric said the food was ready.

      Good point about Damon reacting if it was in the script.

      Emily said Stefan had a pure heart. Although it wasn’t so pure when it came to Bonnie last season. Ugh. So glad Emily shut his ass down in the finale.

      He talked and Caroline has a preference so you know! *wiggles eyebrows*

      Lmao.

      Good point about Katerine and Nina. Still…

      • Persons Unknown is hard to explain. So I’m swiping the synopsis.

        -“Persons Unknown is an American mystery drama television mini-series that revolves around strangers who are imprisoned inside a small ghost town.” It was on NBC last year, but so far i haven’t heard any news about a second season. 😦

        That would be so good!!!! Ugh. Will this show perpetually disappoint me when it comes to the witches? Smh.

        Well you know Kevin’s got his own side witch show now where he can practice all the “woo woo” he doesn’t want to on VD. *side eye*

        I’m rolling my eyes at the whole Emily betrays Katherine thing.
        It’s too much to hope for that Elena would call Bonnie. I bet Caroline’s thought about it more times than Elena has.

        You’re right sibling rivalry and then Stefan helped turn Damon.

        I didn’t see any food and it was making me hungry. I wanted BBQ not pie. 😦

        Aww man Stefan regressed. Maybe he’s pissed off that Bonnie lit Damon on fire. lol But now he only talks to Bonnie when he wants something. 😦 he’s keeping her at arms length.

        • Well you know Kevin’s got his own side witch show now where he can practice all the “woo woo” he doesn’t want to on VD. *side eye*

          Stop it, Cana. You know that on that show it will be called by its proper name: magic. I can’t freaking believe KW. It’s one thing for a character to call it that. It’s another when the freaking creator does it. *Side-eye.* Mags said that this is why greater Fandom doesn’t really take Bonnie’s powers seriously. They’re following the freaking show and its creator. Ugggghhh!!!!

  2. ~ somehow i forgot that klaus was going to be a series regular next season. i’d just gotten over how bored i was with him and started to get interested in whatever they’re going to do with him and stefan next season. and now i’m just annoyed because, other than stefan, the characters i care about the most (bonnie, jeremy, and matt…and i care about them more than i care about stefan) are probably going to get sidelined for the originals and i don’t have many hopes when it comes to stefan getting a storyline that is about more than playing one side of the triangle. my hopes are all over the place. mostly i wish for pacing.

    ~ “stefan knows that there is a time and a place” YES. this is my favorite thing about stefan. he’s not reckless. he’s not stupid. he has an incredible amount of control…like damon just goes off all the time at the slightest provocation and stefan is not like that at all (the closest he comes to being like that, from what i can remember, after damon kills lexi) which isn’t to say that he’s good, but he’s certainly…if all these brothers are around for the comparing…he’s more like elijah (but i sort of feel like it’s a huge insult to klaus to say that damon is like him so that is a somewhat weak analogy)…he’s controlled in a way that i like.

    ~ i wish they hadn’t killed mason because he was incredibly cute and his smile was like the sun. he does look like a puppy.

    ~ i hate that julie thinks it’s cute that we haven’t met bonnie’s dad or home.

    ~ the writing definitely doesn’t treat damon like he’s an asshole. i didn’t like damon last year, but i didn’t hate him either. i could ship him with people. i could think about his potential storylines with some interest. but the writing this season has been particularly bad when it comes damon (and most everyone else, but i’ll stop talking now)

    ~ i’d never thought about how katherine was raping stefan because she compelled until recently. the show doesn’t really address everything wrong with what happened within that relationship. but it’s like the situation with damon and caroline in s1. if someone can’t make their own decision about how to react to the vampire thing then consent is non-existent. i was actually talking about this with my sister the other day.

    ~ when i talk about tvd i tend to ramble a bit, and one thing i always think about is how there is no possibility for recurring characters, except for lucy, because they kill everyone off and that’s not going to work in the future. how is anyone meant to get attached to recurring characters, especially when the main characters don’t get to deal with deaths either? (i’m still upset about greta. i had head!canon)

    ~ i assumed that “katherine compelling the guard” was the story she told anna.

    ~ katherine and pearl coming face to face? what? two female vampires at once? no way!

    ~ i really feel like mason could have been an awesome recurring character just as someone who did not give a shit about damon in any way.

    ~ in that one episode when stefan and damon played football…he was angry at stefan, or something, after he revealed that katherine never had to compel him, he said something to the effect of “it was only supposed to be me” and i always thought he was referencing her turning him. which was why i, unlike a lot of fandom, wasn’t surprised when katherine said it was always about stefan because she clearly lied to damon about turning stefan. plus stefan’s response to her getting caught, like you said, was not this overwhelming thing for him. so it followed, imo, that she would love him and not damon, who was a bit too much a bit too earnest and desperate in a way that i can imagine was mostly only amusing for katherine, he chased her, but she initially was interested in stefan, who hesitated, who waits, who is genuine and honest, but he isn’t…suffocating? yeah, he isn’t suffocating.

    ~ i completely agree about the “it’s okay to love them both” line being awful in terms of just continuity and just letting her keep her teeth because ugh! that was one of the most interesting things about katherine in the premiere.

    ~ i was actually thinking about how caroline/bonnie/elena aren’t as tight as a unit as fandom would make them out to be.

    ~ i used to think that alaric would be an ally of bonnie’s. someone else who would argue reason and not just “FOR THE VAMPIRES” when it came to the plans that they made, but that went to hell pretty fast as alaric is always there to be damon’s best bud/associate killer/roofie dropper.

    ~ i know someone who ships stefan/elena who doesn’t want elena to be turned ever, but most of the stefan/elena fans that i know want her to become a vampire so that the main 3 can be together forever. which i am not terribly into. when i wasn’t bored with stefan/elena, i never wanted her to become a vampire. and that’s why i was so relieved that stefan was like ‘yeah i’d want you to become a vampire, but that is up to you’

    i think my biggest problem with the whole “elena has to become a vampire so their love can last forever” is that forever is such a long time and fandom/the show has the tendency to want to exclude all other loves in the name of holding up a ship as the end all be all for love for the two characters involved. i can’t think of love in that way, so i’m always annoyed by that.

    i’m actually really hopeful that we’ll find out that stefan has been in love before (not katherine, but since then) but i’m not hopeful.

    ~ darla and angel were more of a confirmed thing on “angel” than on “buffy”. buffy is clearly portrayed as a darla rebound on “angel”

    ~ damon was such a dumb fool this season, which is partially damon and partially bad writing, because yeah his plans in s1 weren’t the best or even good but they had a logic to them. they weren’t let’s fly by the seat of my pants and say to hell with thinking.

    i was so disappointed when damon stabbed mason because it was when i realized that the s1 finale was not in the writers’ heads at all. he makes mason an enemy for no fucking reason except boredom and stupidity.

    ~ YES to everything you said about the writers trying to direct viewer interest. it’s so freakin’ annoying. over the course of the season i became less interested in all of the characters because the show is so plot based that characters get killed off and killed off and killed off and no one responds to any of it and we’re just supposed to be okay and this show has barely any history. no history at all except for the history the characters had in the beginning. all the guest stars die. the people who are effected on the show get shunted off to the side and no one deals with anything because OH NOES NOW THERE’S A DUST STORM OF PIXIE GOLD THAT’S GOING TO PICK ELENA UP AND SEND HER TO OZ

    ~ what’s weird about katherine drinking vervaine everyday for the last 140 odd years is that later on klaus is able to compel her. at one point did she stop drinking vervaine? elijah was able to compel her at one point, right? why would she not start drinking vervaine again after she got out of the tomb?

    ~ “how is this possible? how is it we look exactly alike?” DIDN’T WE SORT OF COVER ELENA KNOWING THEY LOOKED EXACTLY ALIKE AFTER SHE AND STEFAN SLEPT TOGETHER FOR THE FIRST TIME?

    ~ there is a subtly to katerina portraying both bonnie and emily. how would the way emily moves come across in bonnie’s body? so i agree. but i think both of them are pretty good.

    ~ i want to meet Bonnie’s father terribly. i really do. i want to meet Bonnie’s father more than i want to see that she lives in a house and not just some ether that houses her until people need her. especially since, matt’s mother came in just to give him some background. which i don’t mind that, but if he can get a mom, bonnie should get her dad. she’s certainly more important than matt.

    ~ this season is made up of about seven or eight conversations, repeated over and over.

    • Apparently Kat is not going to Comic Con this year. Again! But Joseph Morgan will be there. *Sigh* I’ll just go ahead and take this as a sign.

      i’d never thought about how katherine was raping stefan because she compelled until recently. the show doesn’t really address everything wrong with what happened within that relationship. but it’s like the situation with damon and caroline in s1. if someone can’t make their own decision about how to react to the vampire thing then consent is non-existent. i was actually talking about this with my sister the other day.

      I feel like the producers think that just because they don’t call compulsion in sexual situations rape, then it’s not. It’s hard not to draw the comparison. It’s funny how people will say that Damon mind-raped Jeremy or Bonnie mind-raped Luke, but as soon as you say Damon mind-raped Caroline and Andie, then their hackles are up. Whatever. Funny how none of the characters have called what Damon did to Caroline, rape. Not Caroline, not Bonnie, not…is there even a point in mentioning Elena?

      When this show ends, we’ll only be seeing the series regular. There won’t be like a reunion where the fans get to see all the old, familiar faces one last time because all of the recurring characters will be dead.

      Damon said the “it was only supposed to be me” thing in Blood Brothers when he explained why he tortured Stefan all these years. But I remember him getting upset when Stefan revealed that he was the last to see Katherine and that they had other things on their minds than talking about her amulet.

      i think my biggest problem with the whole “elena has to become a vampire so their love can last forever” is that forever is such a long time and fandom/the show has the tendency to want to exclude all other loves in the name of holding up a ship as the end all be all for love for the two characters involved. i can’t think of love in that way, so i’m always annoyed by that.

      It’s also weird because Elena is 17. 17!!!!! *Sigh* I’m used to shows where adults talk about forever and soulmate.

      Good point about the vervain!!!! Oh.My.God. I was going to suggest that maybe vervain doesn’t work for Originals, but….Damon brought Katherine vervain to keep Klaus from compelling her. The Elijah thing can be explained because although she was stuck in the tomb and this hadn’t been taking her vervain medication.

      the people who are effected on the show get shunted off to the side and no one deals with anything because OH NOES NOW THERE’S A DUST STORM OF PIXIE GOLD THAT’S GOING TO PICK ELENA UP AND SEND HER TO OZ

      LOL!
