I love how Bonnie’s so invisible on every single promotion front for this episode.

I’m supposed to be excited and on the edge of my seat about Alaric going psycho despite this picking and choosing. Okay. I’ll get excited when I get the sense Alaric’s not gonna get an easy out, unlike Samantha Gilbert. I remember Rose vs. Damon when it came to the wolf bite *____*.

  1. I really don´t know what to expect about this episode … we know, that we will see three sls this episode: Alaric/Meredith/Stefan/Elena – ring shenigans, Damon/Sage/Rebekah – white oak tree-shenigans and Abby/Bonnie/Jamie/Caroline – vampire turning and adjusting with it.
    And I have a feeling that the part which will get the least screentime is the part that I care about the most.
    I really don´t hope they “waste” too much screentime on Bonnie/Jamie scenes because I have a feeling after Paleyfest they really want to built up something there, but I just want to see Bonnie and Abby and them talking. Of course Jamie should be a part of this but I don´t want that be wasted for some romantic connection if my greatest fear really comes true.

    I didn´t expect Bonnie to be in the promos because those are most of the time action driven and that probably won´t be the case for the Bonnie stuff but I thought we would get the webclip … I´m really disappointed also with the stuff we got about Bonnie from Paleyfest … perhaps they will publish it after episode 17 airs but I thought they would speak about it more.
    They could have given us at least some stills.

    The only hope I have for this episode is Rebecca Sonnenshine. That´s it.

    I don´t even like Rebekah because her character is written so bad and she takes screentime that could go to Bonnie but I feel bad for her that she gets screwed over by the characters and especially by the Salvatores and her brothers every single time. She will never win. Not this episode and for sure not next episode.

    SPOILER:
    Btw did somebody hear the rumor that Claire Holt is already signed for season 4?
    I really don´t know how to feel about that if it is true … because I don´t see any potential sls for next season especially if Klaus gets killed off.

    • And I have a feeling that the part which will get the least screentime is the part that I care about the most.

      Yep. And even when it comes to that storyline, I’m choosing which basket to put my eggs in. That is to say, I’m looking forward to the Bonnie and Caroline scenes. Bonnie/Abby? I’ve voiced my hopes for them many times already, but we’ll see how much they give them and how it manifests. They didn’t exactly do a noteworthy job with them pre Abby becoming a vamp.

      I agree about Jaime. Since he’ll be in ep 20, I feel like there’s time to build things with him. Please, just give Bonnie/Abby this time with maybe a small scene between Abby/Jaime (if she can stand the sight of him and won’t attack him) and minuscule Bonnie/Jaime. So i’m thinkin’ that all adds up to one and a half scenes for Jaime in this episode? Lmao.

      Strangely, despite how happy I was with Cassidy coming on the show, Damon/Rebekah/Sage is what I’m least looking forward to. Probably because of what they’ll be dealing with: The Tree.

      Alaric going nuts is another thing I can’t wait to see. Ignoring how they’ll wrap the story up, I just want to watch him have people running scared. I also frowned when Meredith said, “Alaric, this isn’t you!” in the trailer. All I could think was, “You don’t know him.” I mean he was nice to her, but….so?

      The only hope I have for this episode is Rebecca Sonnenshine. That´s it.

      Pretty much. I mean episode 16 was good for the characters it included (mainly Damon and Elena, imo), but now we’re going to bring in the character it excluded, the same character this show has a known problem with including.

      I’m really curious if she’d willingly have a threesome with Damon and Sage. Would this show go there? I think chances are 50/50. There’s a guy involved and it would add to Damon’s hotness. If she’s somehow under the influence or is incapacitated….my goodness. We’ll see.

      WHAT?! They shouldn’t feel the need to replace Matt Davis’ spot on the roster. Just leave the cast shaved down.

      But gurl, you really think Klaus is going to get killed off by the end of this season? He’ll be here until season 5 at least.

      • “They shouldn’t feel the need to replace Matt Davis’ spot on the roster. Just leave the cast shaved down.”

        YES. So many shows do this, but TVD is the worst. Adding new characters all the time when they haven’t fully developed the ones they’ve got. The writers must be like kids, easily bored with their toys.

        You hurt me with your Klaus prediction. 😛 And I guess Meredith will join a long line of TVD women who stand by their murderin’ man. (Why does she feel she knows him so well? Maybe 2 years have passed since they met? Y’never know with this show’s wacky timeline.)

        • I’m not trying to hurt you; I’m trying to protect you! I don’t want you to be blindsided when Klaus makes it to season 6, lmao.

          Now you know with this show’s timeline only a week has passed since Alaric and Meredith started talking, lol.

          • I’m not trying to hurt you; I’m trying to protect you! I don’t want you to be blindsided when Klaus makes it to season 6, lmao.

            But didn´t JP say in one of her interviews “If the heroes can´t defeat the villain then does that make them less of heroes” … lmao, here is the evidence:

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnEal3zL17A

            Look at Kat she must have missed some episodes this season. lol

            I think they will entomb him or something like that.

            • What does JP mean by defeat? If she means kill then they’ve only succeeded once (talking about big bads) and that was with the tomb vampires. They trapped Katherine but for some reason never killed her even though she continued to be against them until she got held hostage by Klaus. Now JP knows she’s invested in these people not killing Klaus. If she was, then they would’ve killed him the first time (Bonnie’s power. I don’t know why she didn’t go back to her original plan as soon as Elijah betrayed them) or the second time (with Damon’s weapon).

              I like Kat’s eye make-up. But yeah, girlfriend has missed some episodes, lmao. And of course they all want Klaus to stay *____*.

              • You´re right … but I already had to laugh as she said our heroes. Lmao and we know who she is counting as a hero.
                But I think she meant killing because that´s what everyone was working for since the last half of season 2, she probably forgot that they never really succeeded in killing anyone vilainous beside the tomb vampires and this is thanks to Bonnie and Uncle John.

                Loved her outfit for the Paleyfest.
                And Matt wants Alaric to kill him lol. I would go with that if he dies after killing him.

                But I think they won´t kill him off for good. They will probably incapacitate him so they can bring him back in another season or in the second half of season 4. Because if he really stays on the show we will probably see the Klaus/Caroline/Tyler triangle full on next season and that´s something I really do not want.

                • And Matt wants Alaric to kill him lol. I would go with that if he dies after killing him.

                  Lmao. When he said that, I was like “No.” Because I could see JP giving that to him.

                  *Sigh.*

          • Thank you. 🙂 Meredith is probably just there to not give up on Alaric, to parallel Elena not giving up on Stefan, no matter what horrible violent acts they committ. Can’t wait for the meaningful looks and face-holding! Stelena 4eva!

            TVD should do a wacky body-switch episode! Bonnie can fix them later 😉 Then we’d get to see (Elena-in-body-of)Meredith/Stefan and (Meredith-in-body-of)Elena/Alaric! Making both StefanActor and AlaricActor happy since they’d get mushy scenes with real-life-wife and lust object respectively. (I’ve recently learned that AlaricActor has a thing for ElenaActress in real life – knew it! No, I didn’t. But I thought there was a weird vibe in their scenes lately.)

            My idea is a refreshing one, because this show never caters to the actors’ whims and wishes… it’s so strict about keeping everything true to the characters and in perfect continuity, blah blah blah. Loosen up, TVD writers! Relax those high standards, for once!

            (They are gonna contrive to give Stefan and Meredith scenes together though, aren’t they? *shock*)

              Ha!!!

              I knew they wouldn’t put Paul and Torrey in a scene together, and I’m thankful for that. But seriously. Why is Meredith here? Why did they introduce her? They haven’t bothered to give her any significant interactions with the girls as a shoutout to the books. Weren’t she and Bonnie supposed to be close? I know they aged her, but she could’ve developed an affection for Bonnie on the show. But we’ve gotten nothing from all three sides, and of course no one’s surprised that she and Bonnie have never interacted. I’m just trying to figure out why she’s here. Especially if Alaric becomes recurring. Hopefully JP puts a stop to her consideration to bring her on full time or whatever.

              • I knew they wouldn’t put Paul and Torrey in a scene together, and I’m thankful for that.

                But they will share a scene together at least according to the stills. Don´t know if Meredith can speak but it is when she is sitting staked and bloody in the Gilberts bathroom and Elena is looking after her … Stefan is also there but stands by the door.

                I think they wanted to shut up the book fans who always complained about her missing (and yes Bonnie/Elena/Meredith were best friends in the books and especially Meredith was eager to protect Bonnie) but in the end they changed her character completely and only took the rl with Alaric from the books, but they for sure failed with this too. I don´t know how they want to save this because she for sure isn´t a very popular character on the show and I don´t know what they could do with her after Alaric becomes recurring.

              • “I’m just trying to figure out why she’s here. Especially if Alaric becomes recurring. Hopefully JP puts a stop to her consideration to bring her on full time or whatever.”

                I also think Meredith was added in a lame attempt to appease/shut up book fans. She’s nothing like BookMeredith though, so what’s the point? JP is really planning to keep her around without Alaric? Again, what’s the point?

                Maybe she *will* be paired off with Stefan temporarily (pleasing the real-life married couple)… I guess Stefan has to have another love interest while Damon & Elena have their fling. 😛

                • Well it’s now been confirmed that Meredith has more chance of getting a second love interest than Bonnie. I knew it was foul that we saw her apartment before we saw Bonnie’s whole room. Sorry for anyone who didn’t get it.

  2. So Sage comes back looking for Finn. I was wondering how they were going to get her back to MF since she’s not the killer. She’s too hot for Finn, tbh. Especially with his haircut.

    • So I’m probably not crazy in assuming the writers haven’t brought back Bonnie’s cousin ’cause they can’t figure out whose love interest she’d be? 😛 (Maybe Abby would get more screentime if she was in a love triangle. The writers really don’t care about any other kind of relationships, it seems.) Sage wuvs Finn? WHO CARES! We barely know either of them. And what we know right now hardly makes me want to get to know them better or root for their Epic Romance.

  3. LHM the internet is exploding with CREY! Julie showed her ass today about Bonnie and her Fans … and then tiki’sgrandad was co-signing. DRAMA!

      • Like I ranted earlier… we’re supposed to care about SAGE AND FINN? (And every other couple on this show) But oh no, Bonnie’s better than just being a love interest/having a romantic storyline.

        Yes, it could be refreshing to have a female character who has other things going on in her life/prioritizes other relationships over romance. But it’s not like the show bothers to delve into Bonnie’s life. Based on TVD’s priorities…If a girl doesn’t have a love interest she’s nothing, and gets less screentime. Giving her a *vampire* love interest on The *Vampire* Diaries, would definitely increase that screentime, so I bet that’s why fans were tweeting a request for it. (Plus, Kol reminded me of Jeremy a bit, so it sorta makes sense :P)

        Julie Plec can pretend she thinks too highly of Bonnie to pair her with a murdering vamp… but I think we all know JP’s just not interested in writing for Bonnie. Everyone else falls in love with a murderer, and the show doesn’t have a problem with it. But Bonnie’s too good for that. Hey, Bonnie’s too good for this SHOW, period. I guess that’s why she’s always offscreen. 😛

        • I actually tweeted her again 😛 (everytime I use twitter, I am like, OMG! I used the Twitter Machine *EXCITED*). I asked her why she is always “angry” or upset in her replies to Bonnie fans but rarely at other fans.

          “Julie Plec can pretend she thinks too highly of Bonnie to pair her with a murdering vamp…”

          Lol. Her logic is not one we can understand.

          • Susan, don’t you see? It’s very logical. We’re upset that Bonnie’s underused. And Plec’s upset because we just don’t get it! Plec LOVES Bonnie. Bonnie’s actually her favorite character. Bonnie’s above all this vampire-romance nonsense, but unfortunately, that’s what the show *has* to be about. So JP is sparing Bonnie by keeping her away and unsullied. It’s a compliment, really. If only Julie Plec wasn’t forced to focus on those weak pathetic females who fall in love with murderers. Poor Plec!

    • What was Tiki´s Grandad tweeting? I only saw JPs tweets. Lmao she practically undermined her whole writing of three seasons for the show and confimed that Caroline and Elena are not beautiful and strong enough to be with a human and therefore have to be in triangles with vampires and hybrids. Lmao.

      I always knew that she had something against the Bonnie fans, did you see that video from Paleyfest in which she explained her reasoning that she was trending worldwide a week ago? Never laughed that much.

      • “did you see that video from Paleyfest in which she explained her reasoning that she was trending worldwide a week ago?”

        OMG! NO! I’ve slacked off with the fandom lurking and show coverage lately. What did she say? Link?

        • There you go:http://www.tvfanatic.com/2012/03/the-vampire-diaries-cast-interviews-red-carpet-scoop/ … there are videos for every cast member except for Kat and the last one is with JP … scroll forward to 2:50 if you don´t want to hear the whole interview.
          She says that she was trending because the whole fandom wanted to show her that after certain “secs” of the fandom attacked her (probably meaning the Bonnie fans and that token comment because it was in the same week and only a few days apart from her trending) that they support her.
          Lmao she only trended because the DE fanbase thought they would get a cheesy romantic DE scene in the rain and these DE-friendly spoilers Alta talked about in her podcast came out. That was the reason, because I checked her name and I only saw DE fans thanking her for Delena.

          • Pretty pathetic of her to feed fan-wars. “Waahh! Bonnie fans attacked me!! But I don’t care cuz Delena fans like me! Nyah!”

            I guess Kevin Williamson was smart to abandon ship.

      • “she practically undermined her whole writing of three seasons for the show and confimed that Caroline and Elena are not beautiful and strong enough”

        Haha…someone must’ve pointed this out to her, hence the deleted tweets. Think before you post, Plec. You can’t erase your internet idiocy… she’s not the first to try, but it’s futile. Interweb moves too fast and never forgets! Bwahaha!

        Please do explain the Paleyfest thing…

      • You should have seen me … 1 minute into this clip and I thought Plec you still have 60 seconds don´t disappoint me again. Should have known better.

        Can´t with her either.

        • Smh. I don’t get why they think it’s a good idea to be silent on this Bonnie storyline. But I guess it makes sense if there’s nothing to talk about.
