TVD’s mediocrity is spreading with Klaus at the forefront! In the winter premier of season 4, Damon, Jeremy, Matt, and Klaus had too many scenes. Olu loved Stefan getting hurt in his “emotion place,”; Damon finally heard the three words from Elena; Bonnie’s father was introduced, and it was just a tad sloppy, but there’s promise. Olu and I lose a lot of our enthusiasm for Shane, and Rebekah and Kol stole the episode.
Quotes of the Podcast: “Why don’t they want to kill Klaus? Do they realize that Klaus will be or has been, in some way, a villain for four seasons, and he will never have been defeated, and he will never be a good guy on The Vampire Diaries? But he’s going to suddenly have his own show? At least when Angel happened it was after he got sent to hell for 100 years, after trying to send the whole world to hell!”-Olu
“I try very hard not to dismiss Elena, because that’s what the writing does: it dismisses Elena. But seriously? Her telling Damon she loves him….It’s framed inside of this sire bond business, so what does it really have to do with her character? It was about Damon; it was a moment of completion for Damon. Elena hasn’t been written as having a moment of completion in regards to her feelings for Damon, because this sire bond crap happened. So it was a climax in terms of Damon’s story.”
“When Elena criticizes Damon, he rails back, but he reacts to what she says. ‘I’m a vampire! I’m not Stefan!’ He reacts. He listens and he reacts. Stefan didn’t even react.”
“Where was Kol that he was able to go get Shane as soon as Rebekah called?”
