Some bonus materials from the season 3 DVDs are available online and one such material lists eight most heart stopping moments from the series. The 8 moments are Rebekah joining the cheerleading squad, and per Kathrin “the Stefan/Elena closet moment, Klaus’ first hybrid (not Tyler which you may think but the Ray torture scene in that bar), Damon/Elena pillow talk in Ordinary People, Bill trying to fix Caroline, The Mikaelson Ball, Klaus saves Caroline´s life and that scene in the the Forbes cellar with Damon and Stefan.”
I think most of the moments chosen are ridiculous. The only one that comes close to being heart-stopping is the Stefan/Elena closet scene. Rebekah joining the squad? Really? The same scene where Tyler said, “Damn. Girl’s got moves.” They chose that scene as a heart-stopping moment.
Naturally, I think there are other moments more qualified to be on that list than the ones they chose. So my 8 Most Heart-Stopping Moments in Season 3 in no particular order are as follows:
- The big Delena kiss in 3.19
- Bonnie and Sheila reunite (their first scene in 3.07)
- Klaus kills Tyler
- Stefan watches Klaus desiccate
- Stefan triggers Elena on the bridge, AKA “You had me.”
- Elena falls in love next to a wall of victims
- Elena wakes from the dead
- Bonnie taps into dark magic
The last two are on the list only because I needed to come up with 8. Once I hit number 6, I was at a lost for other objectively heart-stopping moments. My alternatives for 7 and 8 respectively were “Klaus’ family comes back” and “Elijah wakes from the coffin.”
Share your list of the 8 most heart-stopping moments in season 3. Does Alaric dying make your list? Or maybe Rebekah’s first day in history class? *________*.
Post any and every spoiler until the synopsis for 4.01 comes out! Once the synopsis is out, I’ll create the post for speculation about the episode.
