There are some things you can always count on and in tonight’s instalment of The Vampire Diaries, we are treated to a few old faithfuls that have come back time and time again over the seasons. However, just because you can count on something, doesn’t mean that you should.
Let’s bitch it out…
Every. Single. Time. You know what? Eventually I might start to give up on Klaus (Joseph Morgan) ever being worthy of Caroline (Candice Accola). He works so damn hard to get her to forgive him and like him. Then she says one hurtful thing and right in the moment when he could make some progress, the guy sabotages himself and pisses her (and me!!!) off even more. I guess a thousand year old bad boy is the same as a modern day one after all. Some things never change.
We all know how much I love Klaus and how desperately I want Caroline to forgive him, get over Tyler (an unseen Michael Trevino) and make beautiful hybrid babies. But honestly, the guy is getting on my nerves. Like I said, there are some things you can always count on in this show, and Klaus pissing off Caroline right at the wrong moment is one of them.
Another thing you can always count on in Mystic Falls is Bonnie (Kat Graham) causing problems and making things worse. Why oh why couldn’t it have been Bonnie that died in that cave instead of my beloved Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen)?! When the witches are going to kill her, and our vampire boys are going to let them, honestly I was so happy. I knew it wasn’t going to happen though, since Bonnie must always be on hand to ensure that the absolute worst always happens. If there is one constant on this show, it is that Bonnie is a waste of space who ruins everything. Why can’t the writers throw poor Matt (Zach Roerig) a storyline and have him try some magic? It would likely end up better than when Bonnie tries it.
One thing I’m not entirely hating? Emotionless Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Rebekah’s (Claire Holt) Thelma and Louise road trip to find Katherine. Emotionless Elena is much more tolerable and actually kind of funny this week compared to last week, and Rebekah plays really well off others, so this has some real potential. But the writers have broken my trust lately (I’m not ready to forgive them for making me watch my beloved Jeremy burn to death), so I’m staying realistic. This could go either way.
- Nice to see Lexi (Arielle Kebbel) again! One thing I love about this show is its use of guest stars. We still get to see characters who were killed in the beginning of season one three seasons later (It keeps my hope alive for Jeremy’s return). I admit that I was shocked at Damon’s (Ian Somerhalder) love for Lexi, so it makes a lot more sense when he explains that he was just being the ultimate a-hole and playing an elaborate trick to hurt her. And that is why Damon is Damon, and I will always pick Stefan (Paul Wesley) instead. (Anyone else having flashbacks to every single time Elena/Katherine has said “It’s always going to be Stefan” over the years?)
- Saved by the bell again this week. For the second week in a row, I thought I was going to have go through losing Jeremy again and watch others mourn him. I actually almost started crying when Stefan starts telling Bonnie, but breathe a big sigh of relief when I don’t hear it again. But guess what!! Three sacrifices are complete thanks to Bad News Bonnie (that’s three steps closer to Jeremy, folks! Who’s with me?!)
- In a move stolen straight from Katherine, Emotionless Elena gets a new haircut and a few bold red streaks. You know, just to ensure that we know she’s a different person from annoying/boring Elena.
‘Because The Night’ is a better episode than last week’s ‘Bring It On’.. but that’s not saying much. What did you think of tonight’s episode? Did it win back your love? Am I just being a Debbie Downer because Jeremy is gone? What do you think will happen with the Silas storyline? Sound off below!
