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 100th episode, "500 Years of Solitude," get running like a vampire’s hunting you.
-I know that many other things were going on in this completely amazing episode, but did anyone else think Elena was not nearly as sad as she should’ve been about breaking up with Damon? Has she seen Damon??? I mean, I’d be bedridden and hooked up to an ice cream IV for WEEKS. Just sayin.
-Okay, so being a doppelgänger is pretty much the worst. No one ever wants to just hang out with you for a normal reason. They always want your blood and what not. Like these mysterious Travelers that Nadia took Elena and Stefan to. (They could’ve at least asked nicely!) Methinks this will become a problem later on…
-It was nice of Elena to try cutting Katherine a little slack on her deathbed, but girl really should’ve seen this switcheroo thing coming. It is Katherine, after all.
And the witty one-liners of the night for Damon are as follows: “I can hear you, dumbass.”; “Doozy.”; “Sword in the daddy.”; and, “Ding dong. Does that mean the witch is dead?”
-As much as I love Katherine, who else wanted to join Damon’s drinking game celebrating her last days?
-We all have Damon to thank for bringing back Aunt Jenna, Elijah and John, when he was tampering with Katherine’s thoughts. Oh, how I’ve missed these characters!
-When Damon wasn’t busy messing with dying Katherine and her terrible memories of her slaughtered family, he was able to bond with Stefan over Elena -- altogether now, “awkward!” Though, who doesn’t love a heartfelt brothers Salvatore moment?
-In between the travelers draining blood from Stefan and Elena, Stefan demonstrated why he’s the nicest vampire in the world. The following bullets show just that.
-What other guy tells their ex-lover to cut his brother some slack and go back to him?
-He compelled the nurses to let Katherine come home with him, so she could die peacefully. Oh, and he also told Katherine, “You’re dying, I think I can muster up a little bit of compassion.”
-Rather than joining in on the Katherine bashing, Stefan drank to Katherine being a survivor.
-While Katherine was on the verge of dying, Stefan turned her slaughtered family memory into one that she wouldn’t be afraid to remember. After everything, Stefan still has a good heart (even if it isn’t beating).
-Watching the guys participate in a Katherine-based drinking game was pretty awesome. Also, it meant more screen time for Zach Roerig, which is always a good thing.
-Poor Matt. Of course, he’d be the one to get buried in Stefan’s old safe without the resurrection ring. He’s pretty much the only normal, human friend the gang has left, so playing the role of the hostage should basically be on his business card by now. Still...let’s get this guy some more threesomes! (Rebekah and Nadia were both around FYI.)
-Vicki watches over Matt in the afterlife. *tears*
-Let’s just cut right to the chase: CAROLINE AND KLAUS HAD SEX IN THE WOODS. After years of shipping these two, I finally got my wish and BOY was it worth it. More of this times infinity!
-Seeing Caroline and Bonnie bring Elena “Breakup Breakfast” in the dorm was just so incredibly adorable. To see all three girls reunited again is an absolute treat. Also, Caroline memorized Elena’s breakup conversation with Damon. Love this girl.
-Caroline was so behind on all the gossip during this episode (like not telling Elena that Stefan and Katherine had sex OR the fact that Nadia is Katherine’s daughter). Double doozy. She’s obviously been doing way too much actual studying in college.
-Did I mention that Klaus and Caroline had sex? And that it was super hot? #TeamKlaroline4eva
-Having Klaus back on ‘TVD’ reminded me just how much I miss the Originals being on this show. I know they have their own spin-off, which I love, but they became such an essential part of Mystic Falls and I want them back. Please?
-Klaus saying “love” is everything. And that smile? *swoon*
-I don’t like that Klaus promised to never bother Caroline again. He can’t mean that, right? Especially after this happened...
-News flash: Klaus + Caroline = hot sex in the woods. (For further info, please see Caroline’s section.)
-I know this isn’t major news, but Bonnie totally rocks that short ‘do.
-Thanks to Bonnie being the anchor, we gained that sweet moment between Vicki and Matt (even if he couldn’t see her). I guess having supernatural beings painfully pass through you has it perks.
-He might not have been in the 100th episode very much, but to hear Jeremy say, “We’ve all slept with our fair share of bad choices,” was fantastic. Obviously, he wasn’t talking about Bonnie.
-Also, we can’t forget when Jeremy declared, “We’re waiting for Katherine to bite it.” More Jeremy (and his biceps), stat!
-Who else shed a tear when Jeremy spotted Alaric? Talk about heartache.
-So, Tyler finally popped up at the end of the episode (aka after Caroline and Klaus sealed the deal!), as Rebekah’s parting gift to Matt. I adore Tyler, but Klaroline forever (I don’t think Tyler will feel the same).
-As Damon’s drinking game implied, Katherine is pretty much a terrible person. However, it was really hard not to feel sorry for her in all those flashbacks. This chick’s had a pretty sucky life (both literally and figuratively). And finding out that your entire family was massacred did not look like a good time.
-I loved how she was worried about sagging/wrinkling even on her deathbed. Vain until the end, that one.
-Oh Katherine...just when you think she’s on the path of redemption, she decides to become a Passenger in Elena’s body. Because of course she did. She’s Katherine Pierce. And Katherine Pierce is a survivor. Can’t wait to see how this plays out.
Be sure to come back in each week for another installment of 'Weekly Fang Girls,' and definitely don't miss 'The Vampire Diaries' on Thursdays at 8/7c on The CW.
Happy 100th ‘TVD’!
