  1. Ooooooohh we can vote! *flails*

    Stefan is selfish not a hero.

    “Damon is a puppy” *eye roll* This show is toilet fodder. Smh

    I told you that it would be a phone call. Lol I laughed.

    I forgot that you were reviewing “As I Lay Dying”. lol I’m like I missed something. Ok onward.

    That’s why the Stefan asking for Bonnie’s help scene was not shown. Because how could it be justified on screen. It’s too unbelievable. Damon has done horrible things to all these characters.

    Whoa to your Jeremy/Stefan scene. :]

    “Our brain is rotting away from this BS.” lol

    “Thirst for Blood and Meat?” ew

    Alaric seemed more hurt than anyone else on the show (even though Elena, Jeremy, Caroline & Bonnie all knew Jenna longer). I guess it’s different when you’ve been inside the vagina of the person who died …

    I bet if Damon ever turned into a vampire it would look like he’s taking a dump on the toilet. Sorry.

    Why did Stefa tell Elena about Damon? What was the point?

    She slammed Stefan into the wall so she could cop a feel.

    They killed them all and Lucy ran away.

    That is weird that hybrid blood would heal a wolf bite in a vampire … smh I guess?

    Maybe it’s special blood IDEK. I’d rather see Klaus feeding people to Stefan than blood bags.

    Stefan was studying anatomy.

    Kidnapped cats!? Lol Not chickens? Not rats?

    Hey guys. Do you think that’s what Bonnie saw when she touched Stefan the first time? All his crazy blood lust.

    Omg what if Katherine and Klaus were in to together to both have Stefan? That could have been so wicked.

    That scene with Elena and Damon I can’t. why am I watching this show?

    Head canon is Katherine was messing with Elena when she says she loved them both.

    Jeremy says “I‘ll help him.” -stake-

    Jeremy getting shot was not supposed to be remembered. And if it is then it’s Liz’s shot.

    “Alaric, you shut up. You’re upsetting the balance.”

    Alta wants Bonnie and Jeremy to get freaky on the webcam.

    Favorite episode: Masquerade.
    Least favorite: The ones with no Bonnie & the house guest. :[
    Favorite character: Bonnie.
    Least favorite: Damon Salvatore

    Shout outs! Love you Alta!

    Yay forwood … *side eye*

    • I guess it’s different when you’ve been inside the vagina of the person who died …

      Oh damn! Lol. Even in the premier, Alaric was more hurt.

      That is weird that hybrid blood would heal a wolf bite in a vampire … smh I guess?

      Oh my God, I just thought of something! What if the witches placed a curse on the weres and vampires so were bites would kill vamps, so there would be no more possibilities for Hybrids.

      Hey guys. Do you think that’s what Bonnie saw when she touched Stefan the first time? All his crazy blood lust.

      Yep.

      Alta wants Bonnie and Jeremy to get freaky on the webcam.

      I want it even more after the premier.

      Love you too!

      • Oh my God, I just thought of something! What if the witches placed a curse on the weres and vampires so were bites would kill vamps, so there would be no more possibilities for Hybrids.

        makes sense. and it would feed the animosity between the groups. I bet you the discord between Weres and vamps is natural and put there by the witches so that the to former groups wouldn’t try to rise against or organize opposition to the witches. The witches/warlocks know what they are doing … when TPTB leave them the hell alone.

        Also this business with Klaus making hybrids doesn’t make sense. I feel like if their turned into vampires their were side dies or becomes dormant because they are no longer alive. I feel like a change like that takes the power of life to make it happen. When that power is missing the rest lies dormant.

        Because the vampires never change (they are stuck in a moment) and there weres do extremely and you don’t grow and change unless you have life. You get what I mean?

        This plan is dumb

    • Kidnapped cats!? Lol Not chickens? Not rats?

      I don’t know. The first thing I wrote down was cats and they stuck.

      Omg what if Katherine and Klaus were in to together to both have Stefan? That could have been so wicked.

      That would have actually been pretty great, especially if they’d taken the time to have Katherine lead Stefan to the water so to speak and Klaus basically push that it was okay to drink. Stefan would have done the rest without needing any pressure.

  2. A love letter to the Damon stans – yes, this sums it up perfectly.

    Before the episode aired, I actually thought that Damon was going to apologize to Jeremy. Like, I had no illusions about him asking Caroline for forgiveness – that was obviously not going to happen. But since these writers love to draw connections between their season premieres and finales (mostly where Damon’s concerned), I figured they’d try to partially redeem him by having him apologize to Jeremy. Plus, killing Jeremy seems to be regarded by both the writers and the non-Damon-stanning fandom as Damon’s most atrocious act. So I thought it was a given. Boy, was I wrong.

    I hated the flashbacks! Hated them! Because what was the one thing that the writers had him be truly sorry about? Choosing Katherine. How convenient for Damon that *this* is shown to be his biggest mistake.

    Favourite episode: The Return
    Least favourite: As I Lay Dying
    Most pointless episode: The Descent

    Favourite character: after some soul-searching I come up with … nobody. This is so depressing!! 😦
    Least favourite character: Damon
    Most annoying character: Alaric (he didn’t get a lot of screen time but whenever he was in an episode he annoyed the hell out of me)

    Well, I hope that Season 3 can bring me back to liking some of the characters I loved in Season 1/early Season 2 before everything went to hell. I want to like them again!
