Hello, and welcome, to our suck-ulent weekly feature surrounding one of our favorite vamp-tastic shows: ‘The Vampire Diaries’! We can’t get enough of vampire shows involving insanely attractive people, and can you really blame us?
So, if you’re a ‘TVD’ fan and are obsessed with the bloody good show, then be sure to join us weekly, where we’ll not only provide a roundup of every episode, but also break down what each Mystic Falls character is up to that week. Like, why can’t Jeremy be shirtless in every episode? Or, are all vampires/werewolves/hybrids/witches beautiful creatures?
Sit back, relax, and get your vervaine and blood bags ready for our weekly ‘TVD’ installment. Warning: spoilers follow, so if you have yet to tune into this week’s episode, "Original Sin," get running like a vampire’s hunting you.
-It was nice to see her bond a little bit with Katherine for a change, since these two are always at each other’s throats. And now we know why Elena didn’t kill Katherine once she made her human last season — she wanted to give her a chance to find her humanity again after having it buried under “500 years of bad behavior.” Can you say understatement?
-It’s sweet how much she still cares for Stefan’s well-being after all this time, but when she completely ignored Damon and immediately went to comfort Stefan I began throwing things at my TV screen. NOT COOL!
-Luckily, Delena shared a nice, tender moment near the end. I don’t care what that Qetsiyah witch says — this relationship is no obstacle, it’s the real deal.
-Besides being weirded out by Elena’s “psychic connection” with Stefan, Damon also had the pleasure of sharing a long car ride with Elena and Katherine. Awkward!
-Damon saying “choo choo”? Can we have some more of that?
-No worries, Damon continued with the one-liners, like this beauty about Katherine: “The only time she shuts up is when she’s sleeping.”
-Anyone else feel bad for Damon everytime Elena ran to Stefan’s side? Despite the universe being a “Stelena” shipper, Damon romantically expressed his feelings by telling Elena, “You are my life.” If it doesn’t work out Damon, call me!
-Stefan did a lot of listening during this episode learning about the long-line of love drama between Silas and Qetsiyah. Kinda makes the whole Stefan-Elena-Damon love triangle seem pretty tame, doesn’t it? His one-liner retorts make me want him to become a supernatural shrink. (Take notes, networks!)
-Dude just can’t catch a break these days. He went from repeatedly drowning in a lake to being imprisoned by a revenge-crazed witch, and now he has absolutely no memory of who he is. The guy has quite literally been reset, which could mean endless possibilities for our favorite love triangle.
-When Stefan started bleeding out of his eyes did anyone else feel like they’d been transported to ‘True Blood’? No? Just me?
-Stefan learning that Katherine’s now human made me literally laugh out loud. This guy’s missed so much since he’s been underwater.
-Let me just say how great it was to see Zach Roerig get the chance to stretch his acting chops while being possessed by Gregor. Anger looks good on Matt.
-Speaking of Gregor, I’m starting to get worried about him taking up residence in Matt’s body. Right now, it’s only on a temporary basis, but Nadia is looking to make it more of a full-time thing and soon, which could mean bad news for our former quarterback. Someone get to the bottom of this STAT!
-Matt woke up surrounded by muddy footprints and a blood-soaked knife in his pocket with no recollection of what happened. Now the question remains — who was his victim?
-Another fun fact about human Katherine: she gets car sick in the backseat.
-Her candid interpretations about Elena’s dreams about Stefan are not only amusing, but pretty spot on. If people ever stop trying to kill her, she should look into becoming a marriage counselor. (Umm, greatest spin-off idea ever?)
-I’m intrigued at how Katherine and Elena’s characters have pulled a complete 180 with each other. Not only is Katherine mortal while Elena’s immortal, but now Katherine’s blood holds the cure to vampirism just like how Elena’s blood held the solution to Klaus’ hybrid problem. Crazy!
-Silas gives me so many “gulp” moments. From ordering Nadia around to making sure Matt stays dead to hunting Katherine down to his mind control powers, he’s one big bad that scares me.
-As scary as he is, Silas holds all kinds of answers, like oh, revealing this tidbit: even though Katherine took the cure, her “blood is the cure.” Watch your back, girl!
-Like Damon, Silas is the master of one-liners, including this charming statement to Katherine (these men really do hate her), “the mere thought of your face makes me want to vomit.”
-Step aside Silas, because your 2,000-year-old ex-girlfriend from Ancient Greece (yes, the infamous Qetsiyah we heard about all last season) is back and she wants vengeance. She even admitted that she has trust issues, is crazy and is very paranoid. Yikes.
-Qetsiyah (who wants to be called Tessa) did help Stefan out of the quarry, but she also linked him with Silas in order to fry Silas’ brain and cease his “psychic” abilities.
-Like Silas, Qetsiyah is full of delicious scoop, i.e. Silas’ one true love, Amara, is the shadow self of Katherine and Elena. Oh, and that Stefan, Elena and Katherine aren’t the first doppelgangers of Silas and Amara. Man, things just got even more complicated.
Be sure to come back next week for another installment of 'Weekly Fang Girls,' and definitely don't miss 'The Vampire Diaries' every Thursday at 8/7c on The CW.
