  1. I’m so giddy to watch Shane in his natural element, you guys.

    Oh my goodness, Delena swear they’re important to Stefan. Like, what he’s doing is about them. This kind of falls in line with what Olu and I have talked about in regards to this triangle kind of being about Stefan sometimes. He’s the one that can walk away. And now that he has, or he’s pretending that he has, Elena and Damon are talking like they’re still relevant to him.

    How would sleeping with Rebekah prove that Damon can’t get under Stefan’s skin? Is Damon saying that Stefan thinks he’s sleeping with Elena to get under his skin? Ugh.

  2. I think that part of the reason that I love Shane so much is that I love that this anthropologist (or wtvr he is calling himself) is being depicted as a skeevy, fetishizing, manipulative bastard. “I love witches” hmmm indeed

  3. This is the episode where Caitlin comes in who has some connections to Shane, right? So she isn´t seen in the promos, do you think that maybe she is his dead wife and we see him hallucinating her … Shane spoke about the island having its own kind of magic or maybe he imagines her after Damon punched him in the face.

    Also that guy who attacks Jeremy (also in the promo) … he reminds me of the Alexander guy from episode 4×04, one of the first hunters. Another hallucination?

    • Caitlin is mentioned in the 4.14 synopsis, so I think she (and Vaughn) comes in the next ep. I do strongly think that she’s his dead wife, though.

      I think the guy attacking Jeremy is supposed to be a “native” from the island. Because what this show needs is to portray Native people in any capacity. The guy is wearing facepaint.

  4. Did you guys read the new interviews with Ian that came out this week?

    Not really spoiler-y but he also speaks about Shane and the scenes on the island
    The first one; http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/01/the-vampire-diaries-star-ian-somerhalder-envisions-a-future-for-damon-and-elena-parties-an-art-galle.html?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

    The second one: http://tvline.com/2013/01/30/vampire-diaries-season-4-spoilers-ian-somerhalder-damon-elena/ (there is some talk about episode 14 in the second last question)

    First of all eww his opinion in regards to the sire bond. But second of all I think they are going to turn Damon into a human if they are really going through with that cure storyline. The person who wants it the least is going to get it (and Klaus is out of the race because he is going to get this spin-off probably)
    Also what about this moment in season 2 where he said he misses being human? I think JP said on twitter after somebody asked her about that this was a “character moment” … but I still don´t get it, if it is a character moment shouldn´t it be relevant also now two seasons later?

    • The webclip for this episode makes me think that they’ll revisit Damon wanting to be human. Something they couldn’t do for Caroline when she had a chance to talk about the cure (in 4.07).

      Wow, Ian sounds like he doesn’t care about his answers AT ALL in the first interview. Lmao.

      I get my ass kicked, basically. When I first signed up for this character, I thought I’d be working two days a week. Damon’s like dessert. He’s one of the best parts of the meal, but you can’t have him all the time!

      Even HE gets it!

      I saw his gross quote a couple of days ago. I didn’t know he said “Just kidding” after it. Which….still.

  5. A little bit about Caroline:

    Could I get some scoop on The Vampire Diaries‘ Caroline Forbes? Possibly about Klaroline or Steroline? –Amy
    Amy, I found you something behind Curtain A. Or, more accurately, show boss Julie Plec did. “Caroline will find herself stuck in the middle of the terrible tensions between Klaus and Tyler,” Plec says in response to your query, “leading her to put her own life on the line to try to resolve their issue.”

    Source: http://tvline.com/2013/01/31/castle-vampire-diaries-scandal-bones-spoilers/

    “Resolve their issue” … they make it seem like Klaus stole Tylers lunch.

  6. I honestly thought this episode would have an epic payoff! Until I started watching it and realized it was all set up! -flails- SHOW ME THE CURE. SHOW ME SILAS. DON’T KILL REBEKAH! -comes back next week and it ends without either things, and Rebekah dies- -flails-

    I need to do what I did with season one, stop watching, then watch a 10 episode marathon in a row and fall in love with it all. #TeamAnna lol

  7. I liked this episode a lot. I loved all the Bonnie scenes. I approved of her pawing Jeremy’s chest.

    Bonnie: “Sorry. If there was a less awkward way to do this, I would.”

    Jeremy: “It doesn’t bother me.”

    My emotions! My favorite part is his little smile. Ugh.

    I love that she got mad that Shane taught her a magic that had proved fatal to someone he knew. I also like the new and improved (if impractical) locator spell.

    “Expression doesn’t require a written spell. Just think of it as a way of accessing magic that already exists inside you.”

    Isn’t all magic magic that’s already inside the witch? *Squints*

    I mean when they get blocked, they have to reach inside them to get rid of what’s got them scared so they can practice their magic again.

    So Shane really did have a wife and child. And his wife was a witch! THAT’S how he knows so much. But the thing is, he said Caitlin was an undisciplined witch, hence why she’s dead. Reminds me of Esther, actually. But anyways, I’d be a little hesitant to take her word about this fix!it cure all.

    Shane was great in this episode. “Suncreen?” Lmao. His bitch ass only ONLY taught Bonnie Expression so that she’d wake Silas.

    Caroline was COMPLETELY unnecessary in this episode. She got horrifically hurt again. How novel.

    Tyler’s first scene with Klaus was great. “Morning, sunshine. YOU look pathetic.” Lmao.

    “Don’t stoop to his level.”

    “He destroyed my life.”

    Thank you, Tyler.

    Tyler would have to do so many things before he could ever stoop CLOSE to Klaus’ level. That’s what a lot of these characters, and this Fandom, doesn’t get.

    “Tyler’s mother is dead. So is my brother. We’re even.”

    Actually, you’re not. Tyler had nothing to do with killing your brother, one. Two, there’s the whole you killed Tyler and forced him to be your servant thing. You also forced him to bite his girlfriend.

    Even? Nope.

    Damon was ridiculous, as usual. He doesn’t care about Bonnie. Tell me something I don’t know. Anyone who’s genuinely upset or shocked at this is just doing it to themselves at this point. My advice is to let it go.

    “Why do you all assume that I hate Elena?” Could it be because you behave as if you hate Elena? Actions speak loud.

    • I really liked all the stuff we got with Shane, Bonnie, Jeremy and that first Tyler/Klaus scene.

      I´m so not here for Rebekah/Elena. It seems like the writers are tired of writing the other relationships of Elena with Caroline (started this season) and Bonnie (when were they ever interested in that friendship others than to use Bonnie to help her) and therefore now they include Rebekah into this. And I just don´t want to see it.

      I don´t get Damon, episodes ago he said that he would love Elena no matter if human or vampire, now he doesn´t want her to be cured. Two episodes ago he made fun of Kol for wanting to stop them to go after Silas and the cure, now he calls Shane crazy for wanting to raise him. Why is he helping then? And then the stuff about being human, when did it change? Did I miss something?

      I´m tired of Elena and trying to reassure Damon that she loves him, don´t need more scenes of this. This is the worst season for Elena imo.

      Do you think that the vision of Caitlin that Shane saw was actually Silas? I have the feeling that this guy is waiting for people to come to him because of this mystery that they could see their loved ones again, then they use their blood and Silas creates an illusion of the loved one this person wants to see. And then he talks them into doing stuff for him (the sacrifices, finding a hunter, etc) and helping him to be raised again. And Shane was the first one that was successful with it.

      I really liked the detail of Qetsiyah burrying the spell with Silas so that he would do it and become mortal again. And I loved how Bonnie told the story again while touching Jeremy, lol.

      So how was Damon able to see the hunters mark? Do you think Vaughn completed his tattoo aswell? Why is he on the island?
      Also speaking of the tattoo … I don´t know but I expected it to be so much bigger and covering almost every part the hunters body, I wasn´t really impressed. It looked like there weren´t much vampire kills needed to complete it.

      Caroline was COMPLETELY unnecessary in this episode. She got horrifically hurt again. How novel.

      There was a time I counted the episodes written by Caroline Dries in which Caroline got tortured or hurt, have to add another one to that list.
      And again she got that long scene at the end (I don´t know it reminded me of the scene between her and Elena in 3×13 I think where it just didn´t want to end) where she was huffing and puffing and I´m just sitting here and thinking please stop.
      I saw some people speculating that she was manipulating him. Do you think that´s true? I don´t know, it would be great for Caroline but would JP or even Caroline Dries allow that and then comes the tweet from JoMo where he said that this episode featured one of the most interesting arcs for Klaus. Wouldn´t think he would talk like that way if his character would have been tricked again. They are starting his awful redemption storyline before the spinoff even started.

      Also what was Caroline´s talk “this place looks like a disaster” except for Kol lying on the floor there wasn´t much damage I could see.

      Also I´m really unimpressed by Nina´s and Candice acting at the moment.

      And that searching group for Jeremy was a big fail … shouldn´t they have split up or something?

      • The Rebekah/Elena scenes in this episode were hit and miss. Rebekah’s comments and stuff were strong, but Elena’s irritations were super weak. Not to mention that Rebekah saved her (I don’t see how that trap would’ve killed her. She’s a vampire), so suddenly she wants a truce. That is such shallow writing.

        I want to know when Damon stopped wanting to be human too?! Like, what? Also, Damon’s insecurities should be what ends Delena. Seriously, it must get tiring having to reassure someone every three days. Also, he’s SOOOO negative. A Negative Nancy Nathan. Who wants to put up with that?

        Yep, it’s the worst season for Elena. Random: But I don’t know why Shane was commenting on Delena, although his line about Damon’s irrelevance was amazing.

        Right now, I’m choosing to believe that he really saw Caitlin. She called him by a nickname.

        Qetsiyah is amazing. Not only did she bury Silas, but it was basically a timeout! Lol! She was just like, “Once you realize what you did, say this spell and come join me so we can be together.” Lol.

        Two of my wishes came true in this episode: 1) Bonnie told the story of Qetsiyah and Silas to Jeremy and it seemed like they both realized that it mirrored their situation with Anna a little. 2) Bonnie traced Jeremy’s tattoo!

        I hope Vaughn’s tattoo is completed, otherwise it makes no sense. And why is the tattoo now visible to everyone?

        The tattoo should’ve been bigger. With how small it is, it seems like most of Kol’s line died for nothing.

        Dries wrote this episode?

        Between having Caroline manipulate Klaus and having Klaus be “touched” because someone believes in him, I’m confident JP would go for the second option.

        Also what was Caroline´s talk “this place looks like a disaster” except for Kol lying on the floor there wasn´t much damage I could see.

        Me neither -___-.

        I was going to wait until the podcast to mention it, but Candice’s acting in the first scene when she was ranting at Klaus sucked. It’s like she thinks a monologue means she needs to raise her voice and cut her words shot. Girl, stop.

        Nina hasn’t been trying to act since 4.07. Lol.

        We got three vampires searching for someone: they didn’t use ANY of their powers, and they didn’t split up. Stellar job. Smh.

        • I don’t see how that trap would’ve killed her. She’s a vampire

          I don´t know it looked to me like those stakes pointed at her heart, but it is difficult to judge because of the camera ankle.

          I like your theory about Damon´s negativity being the possible cause of the end of Delena.

          But I don’t know why Shane was commenting on Delena, although his line about Damon’s irrelevance was amazing.

          Because everybody has to comment on Delena … I think that was popular since season 1 when Isobel started talking about Damon loving her.
          I think this stuff is all to make Damon more and more insecure and then in the end, because the show writers love him, all those people will be wrong and Elena will still love him I guess and they have their happy end (at least for this season).
          I loved that line and seriously Shane must be familiar with torture after what Kol put him through and now Damon he is still hiking through the woods like nothing, lol.

          Qetsiyah is amazing. Not only did she bury Silas, but it was basically a timeout! Lol! She was just like, “Once you realize what you did, say this spell and come join me so we can be together.” Lol.

          That´s true, but I just now realized that it somehow does contradict with one of the Qetsiyah/Silas story versions Shane told … didn´t he say that Silas developed the spell to turn himself human again after Qetsiyah killed the woman he loved but Qetsiyah trapped him before he could do it? So confusing, lol.

          And why is the tattoo now visible to everyone?

          Hm, probably for the show affect. That hulk scene with Jeremy wouldn´t have been that impressive if he just rips his shirt off and the group looks only at his shirtless self, lol or would it?

          Dries wrote this episode?

          Yes. That´s why we probably also got the Klaroline stuff, isn´t she famous for that pairing? 3×14, 3×21, 4×01, 4×07 and now 4×13 … the next episode she writes will probably include Klaroline aswell.

          It’s like she thinks a monologue means she needs to raise her voice and cut her words shot. Girl, stop.

          I agree.
          And I was so angry when she mentioned Jenna. Elena hasn´t spoken about her to Klaus ever but here comes Caroline who was just episodes ago sympathizing with this guy and also laughing on a date with him and now she comes up with Jenna. That was the return of being the mouthpiece for other characters.
          And it looked so weird with Tyler in the background and no movement, he looked like “Let that girl talk” … shouldn´t he have been closer to Caroline and warning about her not going that close to the barrier? Weird directorial decision.
          Also that synopsis stuff was wrong (“Tyler (Michael Trevino) confronts Klaus (Joseph Morgan), and Caroline (Candice Accola) is caught up in the violence that follows.”) … the same goes for that weird spoiler, which is even more wrong (“leading her to put her own life on the line to try to resolve their issue.”) – Tyler was just there to witness and gloat about the last moments of Klaus pathetic life and Caroline had no business with the monologue, she didn´t have to get between them, because Tyler wasn´t even arguing with him at that moment. It looked like she was more offended by it than Tyler.

          Nina hasn’t been trying to act since 4.07. Lol.

          So true.

          • I don´t know it looked to me like those stakes pointed at her heart, but it is difficult to judge because of the camera ankle.

            Oh, you’re right. There were a lot of them, so I guess one could’ve penetrated her heart.

            Because everybody has to comment on Delena … I think that was popular since season 1 when Isobel started talking about Damon loving her.

            Ugh.

            I loved that line and seriously Shane must be familiar with torture after what Kol put him through and now Damon he is still hiking through the woods like nothing, lol.

            Lmao.

            That´s true, but I just now realized that it somehow does contradict with one of the Qetsiyah/Silas story versions Shane told … didn´t he say that Silas developed the spell to turn himself human again after Qetsiyah killed the woman he loved but Qetsiyah trapped him before he could do it? So confusing, lol.

            That’s the version he told Elena (and Damon), and I always thought he was lying to them, though it could be the writers screwing up. But in this episode, Bonnie repeated the version he first told. What I realized is this: how did Qetsiyah expect Silas to use the reversal if she’d stripped away his powers like Shane first said?

            How is Silas supposed to bring back the dead people if he doesn’t have any powers?

            Hm, probably for the show affect. That hulk scene with Jeremy wouldn´t have been that impressive if he just rips his shirt off and the group looks only at his shirtless self, lol or would it?

            I think it still would’ve worked. Maybe have Bonnie being the only one able to see it now, since she’s a witch and a descendant of the woman who created the Five. And then Jeremy would say, “It’s done.” And Damon could say his ridiculous, “Here we go,” line. But I guess if they couldn’t see it, Elena would’ve run up to Jeremy, all, “What’s going on?!” and that would’ve ruined it. Lol.

            Oh that’s right. She is Queen of Klaroline.

            Caroline makes no sense. It’s like she can’t make up her mind. She doesn’t have any strong convictions.

            And you’re right, it was weird that she was taking over the scene and Tyler just stood in the background. Suddenly, she was angrier than Tyler was. Really?

            Yeah, I thought Tyler and Klaus were going to be fighting and Caroline would get in the middle and try to stop them. Instead it was this tame thing. I don’t know why Tyler was just like, “No!” and didn’t use his powers to speed over once Klaus stabbed Caroline. I guess he’s adopted Elena’s late reflexes.

  8. Loved the Beremy scenes, and the way Jeremy was looking at her swoon lol. These writers:sigh:

    I agree with you about Damon I dont understand what the big deal is. Also it is not like Bonnie cares for him so…?

    The Klaus/Caroline/Tyler scenes boring. Also since when has he been in love with Caroline? Please, whatever.

    Isnt it possible that Shane is being played by Silas?

    Why did Elena untie Shane? She should have left him there.

    Bonnie/Jeremy go misssing and the others find time to talk about their relationship dramas lol ok then.

    • It’s so great because I remember when Jeremy was like, “You think I’m hot?” And now he’s like, “I don’t mind you looking at my bod.” *Feelings!*

      It seems some people think the writers are setting things up for Bamon as of this episode…….

      Her saying that Klaus is in love with her reminded me of how ridiculous the ship is.

      Shane is doing what Caitlin told him. I think it’s possible that Caitlin is being played by Silas.

      When Elena said, “Stop picking on my friends” or whatever, I didn’t get it. Damon’s not her friend. He’s her boyfriend.

      It’s so irritating that every time Damon tells Elena that he doesn’t care about someone she cares about, she finds a way to rationalize why he’s saying it. Also, we had another example of a Salvatore telling Elena to go away, yet she choose to explain why they’re being rude to her.
