The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "The House Guest"

by at .

WOW. It's safe to say we have a lot to talk about this week on The Vampire Diaries Round Table. Before our panel gets into it, be sure to read our review of the latest, action-packed episode.

Ready? Good. Below, editor-in-chief Matt Richenthal is joined by TV Fanatic writer Steve Marsi and fellow critic Eric Hochberger to discuss developments from "The House Guest" ...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What was your favorite quote/scene from the episode?
Matt: Close your eyes, give me your hand, darling. Do you feel my heart beating? Do you understand? Really, I could just type out every lyric from "Eternal Flame" as my quote.

Steve: Damon shooting down Katherine. That tease. Takes one to know one!

Eric: Katherine's reaction after (nearly) killing Jonas. Licking her blood-stained lips? Sexy, frightening and delicious.

Bigger shock: Isobel's return, the death of Luka and Jonas or Damon turning down sex with Katherine?
Matt: I'll combine the death of Luka with the fact that Elijah remained dead. I was convinced he'd return to (after?) life and wreak havoc. Instead, the death toll just continued to add up.

Steve: All were surprising, but both warlocks going down hard and fast was definitely the development I expected least. At least they flamed out in style.

Eric: Damon's dismissal of Katherine. Seriously, that must have been some fascinating journal entry he was reading!

Better version of Eternal Flame: The Bangles or Candice Accola?
Matt: The Bangles. Gotta go with the originals. Let's just hope they don't return and try to sacrifice Accola's doppleganger. That would be unfortunate.

Steve: Candice. Who knew she had such a great voice? As a sucker for cheesy ballads, I loved the song selection too. If you're taking requests, Candice, can you do "True Colors" by Cyndi Lauper next week? Matt might need another serenade after seeing yours ...

Eric: I agree with Steve. I'm far from a softie, but it got very dusty in here after Matt ended Caroline's rendition with a kiss.

How will Matt respond to the news about Caroline?
Matt: Gotta imagine he's gonna need a break. Perhaps a road trip of some kind. When he returns, he won't be alone (cough... cough... Tyler... cough... cough).

Steve: His initial reaction wasn't exactly encouraging, but the fact that she saved his life must count for something. Maybe he'll come around, but I'd brush up on my '80s covers if I were Caroline.

Eric: Not well at first. But after doing his laundry for like a month, all should be fine between these two.

Give us one bold prediction for the final set of season two episodes.
Matt: Isobel will sacrifice herself to save Elena. At the hands of Klaus, when all is said and done, we'll see that Elena's mother actually does care and is willing to take the most extreme step possible as proof.

Steve: Often relegated to the sidelines, Bonnie will play a pivotal role in the gang's quest to kill Klaus. Also, Katherine will continue to assert herself as a sexual being. No one will see that coming.

Eric: Dair will finally sleep together, causing a ripple effect around the upper Eastside and... wait, this might be for the wrong show.

    Favorite quote/scene: Damon turning Katherine down. It shows that he's grown over her, not like in the beginning of the season where she was seducing him too, but he fell for it.
    Shock: Well, ever since John came back, I was expecting Isobel to come back. So, my biggest shock would be Luka and Jonas's death, really sad.
    Best version: Definitely Candice. She did really good :) I never thought that they would put this new character into Caroline.
    Matt: He'll have a hard time getting over it, but since he loves Caroline, he will eventually forgive and forget.
    Prediction: Well, I have read the books, and even though they do not exactly follow the books completely, I'm predicting they would follow it with this part. Elena's going to die, but turn into a vampire, and then she will really die. Because of this the gang kills Klaus, and she comes back. It makes sense because in order to kill Klaus, or make him vulnerable, Elena has to be sacrificed.

    Shock: luka being burned alive
    Best Version: Candice
