The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "The Hybrid"

by at . Comments

Klaus failed, Anna warned and Caroline's father paid his daughter a visit on this week's episode of The Vampire Diaries.

Which ghost do you trust? Who inspired you the most? And might the show's love triangle be growing tiresome? Come along with Round Table participants Matt Richenthal, Steve Marsi and Dan Forcella as we delve into "The Hybrid."

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

What was your favorite scene from the episode?
Matt: Klaus actually losing it for a change. The guy is so calm and collected, so I took his anger over the hybrid failure to mean he's seriously scared of whoever the heck has been giving him directions.

Steve: Damon's speech to Elena at the end. Hanging on every word and moment of silence, I was legitimately unsure if they would go there. Full-fledged couple or not, the chemistry is palpable and the relationship complicatedly spellbinding.

Dan: Klaus in all of his glory, with all of his dead werewolves in the woods, just waiting for them to wake up and become the army of hybrids he dreamed of. Just listening to him declare "You build your army so big, that no one ever dares pick a fight" gave me chills. It's just too bad that it all came crumbling down around him only a few hours later.

Vampire Diaries Round Table

Elena's torn heart: Growing more interesting, or growing more tiresome?
Matt: Teetering on the edge of tiresome. Elena said it herself to Damon last night when he kept pressing her about leaving the woods: yes, she cares about him, why must he keep bringing that up? She's with Stefan and that isn't changing, so let's stop catering to the Delena shipper with such frequent teases.

Steve: Interesting. See my first answer. If they keep dragging this out interminably, my mind will change, because this is the kind of thing that seems destined to grow tiresome. But when Damon called her out about why she was ready to leave, that caught my off guard and raised the emotional stakes. Brilliant.

Dan: I'm going to go with interesting. For a while I had no doubts about her and Stefan, but as of late that has changed. I don't care how many Ian Somerhalder quotes I read that say there will never be Delena, I'm holding out hope for it. And as long as Damon keeps showing up in her bedroom while Stefan is out and about with Klaus, there's only so much longer she can keep denying the blue-eyed beauty.

Who do you trust: Anna or Vicki?
Matt: Anna. It's easy to forget because it's been awhile, and we tend to place the dead on a pedestal, but Vicki sort of sucked when she was alive.

Steve: Vicki. Why? Because I'm on Team Matty and they're sibs. Step off, Anna.

Dan: Neither. Never trust ghosts.

More inspiring speech: Elena telling Alaric he's part of the family, or Damon telling Elena to remember how she felt in Stefan's absence?
Matt: I know I bashed it above, but taken on its own, Damon's words to Elena were moving: When I drag my brother back from the edge and deliver him back to you, I want you to remember the things you felt when he was gone.

Steve: Elena's. Ric needed to man up, and after Coach E all but begged him to summon whatever he had left to carry on, he'd have run through walls for her. Maybe Klaus should try to be a better motivator with his next hybrid army.

Dan: I have a newfound love for Ric and his fancy haircut so I'm going to choose the former. He's basically Elena's father at this point, or at the very least, her crazy uncle, so why not break down and make him a part of the family? He deserves it.

More surprising development: Bill as Caroline's father, Tyler tracking down the pack's whereabouts off Elena's phone or The CW not mentioning that Jeremy used Bing to learn more about ghosts?
Matt: Tyler's incredible phone navigation. He had one piece of information - Stefan is in Tennessee - and once they got into the mountains, Elena pointed out to Alaric the precise spot where Tyler said the pack would be. Impressive. We could have killed Bin Laden years ago if Tyler was on the case.

Steve: The last-second reveal of Bill's identity was tremendous, but I've gotta go with the lack of Bing plugs. How do you work that in so shamelessly for 1-2 years, then not in EITHER STORY LINE in which characters look things up online? Maybe the CW is really TV to Google Map about.

Dan: I have to go with my man Jack Coleman as Bill. I did not see the former Noah Bennett being Caroline's father. The best thing about having single mothers and fathers on television is that you can bring their former spouses in at the most opportune times, as we saw here with Mr. Forbes: NHRG. The biggest question becomes, what will Bill do with his daughter locked up down there?

this episode was massive!! ok favourtie scene for me was when damon throws elena in the water and the banter that follows. but ohmygod! the last delena scene was so epic! i am NOT getting tired of the love triangle. delena will happen. if it doesnt then all this build up will be for nothing. elena has feelings for damon. stefan isnt in the picture. and a+b=DELENA! im surprsised no one mentioned matt donovans ABS! he needs to be shirtless all the time. and i really like alarics "fancy" haircut. and the fact that elena has become so witty and quirky. i love her.

Someone brought up the forums lol! No offense but the forums suck on this website. Really, really bad too. Nobody is om them for a reason. ;) Just being honest

Um don't understand how crazychick thinks not many people like delena?!! Um they win every poll and have ten times more youtube hits etc and they aren't even a couple. I'm not into the ships but delena is 2 to 1 possibly more right now. You can't compare Chair/dair to delena/stelena because chair and delena are the power couples (majority) and Gossip Girl as a show is almost over while Vamp Diaries s just beginning.

What was your favorite scene from the episode? I love the part were Damon throw Elena into the water. Elena's torn heart: Growing more interesting, or growing more tiresome?
I'm a Elena and Damon team all the way it gpoing to be great when they finally couple up. Who do you trust: Anna or Vicki?
i don't think i would trust Vicki remember all the stuff she did as a human i would not. More inspiring speech: Elena telling Alaric he's part of the family, or Damon telling Elena to remember how she felt in Stefan's absence?
I going for the Damon telling Elena to remember how she felt in stefan's absence. i'm glad that there showing that she dose feel something for him. More surprising development: Bill as Caroline's father, Tyler tracking down the pack's whereabouts off Elena's phone or The CW not mentioning that Jeremy used Bing to learn more about ghosts? Bill as Caroline's father i can't wait to learn more. But that Bing thing is great is trying to bug me. Read more: http://www.tvfanatic.com/2011/...

What was your favorite scene from the episode?
Tyler, coming out to his mother, like literally without clothes on. Elena's torn heart: Growing more interesting, or growing more tiresome?
More tiresome. We know she will choose Stefan at the end. Who do you trust: Anna or Vicki?
Gotta go with @Dan. Neither of them. Although if I have to pick, I'll go with Vicki. That moment when she called out "Matty?", I felt sorry for her. More inspiring speech: Elena telling Alaric he's part of the family, or Damon telling Elena to remember how she felt in Stefan's absence?
Neither. Elena and Damon and speech shouldn't belong together in a sentence. More surprising development: Bill as Caroline's father, Tyler tracking down the pack's whereabouts off Elena's phone or The CW not mentioning that Jeremy used Bing to learn more about ghosts?
Bill as Caroline' father. Urgh, I don't like Jack Coleman. Dude creeped me out. I'd like to discuss more about how Bill and Liz can 'create' someone so awesome like Caroline!

PS @CrAZychicke, it is funny watching the ship comparison between Dair/Delena and Chair/Stefena in this forum. They always seem to oppose me!

Uncle-jackass

It's getting exhausting waiting for Delena to occur naturally, BUT when it will happen it should be epic. That said I'm imagining a funny line like: Elena: "I don't what happened between you and Stefan but, let's make it clear. I am not Buffy (or Joey Potter)!!"

so funny to read that not many people seem to like Delena - don't know why they have so much more fun and Damon is hilarious ie. when he pushed elena in the river and then GOES IN TO GET HER?! OMFG and Elena admitted she cared for him, yes it's not an i love you becuase for once she is (mostly) loyal to stefan unlike other tv series, but there is definitely chemisty and i am waiting for DELENA to happen because trust me, stelena is just BORING - Damon is my fav character, then Caroline. Elena can really be irritating sometimes but i love Delena! I LOVE FORWOOD but i also like STAROLINE. Stefan can be with anyone but elena really, he seems to flaunt that beautiful smile when he's with caroline the best. anyway, my point is that DAMON and ELENA are EPIC. just watch the youtube videos. s3 is their season.

is it time Klaus changed his plans and hunt Elena down? how far would Stefan go with Klaus? would he come back to town soon? i doubt that. he tried so hard to drive Klaus to distraction and stay away from Elena as far as he could.
