The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "Ghost World"

by at . Comments

For the first time in ages, The Vampire Diaries was a total bust this week. So we noted in our review of "Ghost World," and so Round Table panelists Matt Richenthal, Steve Marsi, Dan Forcella and Eric Hochberger detail here.

Agree with their takes? Disagree? Find them utterly hilarious? Weigh in now!

-------------------------------------------

What was your favorite scene from the episode?

Matt: Caroline brought her A game to a D episode. She cracked me up when she continually asked Bonnie if the dead witches were still around, and then she smacked some sense into Jeremy over the phone.

Steve: The last one. Regardless of how they got there, those cave drawings - and Alaric's dumbfounded expression looking at them - were pretty cool.

Dan: Elena finding Jeremy and Anna making out because it meant that Bon-Bon could finally drop that dead weight that is Jeremy Gilbert.

Eric: Damon's re-hashing of his Mason apology to Alaric. But, more importantly, Ric calling him on the bullshit. I know it's a lame scene by action standards, but when there's so many annoying ghosts run around and a lack of Forwood, I turn to my favorite bromance for entertainment.

Vampire Diaries Round Table

Are you sad Bonnie and Jeremy broke up?

Matt: No, because now it allows me to use this awesome pun: looks like Jonnie is off the spot now, huh, everyone?!?

Steve: Not really. Besides, now Bon-Bon will never smile.

Dan: See Question 1. I was sad that Bonnie was sad, but he doesn't deserve her.

Eric: Absolutely not! Like Dan, I felt like Jeremy doesn't deserve Bonnie. I get he's a tortured soul tormenting by the ghosts of girlfriends past, but if Matthew McConaughey could get past it, so should you. Besides, who cheats on their hot witch girlfriend with a ghost anyways. Not me.

Which returning ghost were you most happy to see?

Matt: Lexi, by default really. She's headed to 90210, as well, BT Dubs.

Steve: Grams. Jasmine Guy rocks, and this was the only visit from the great beyond that made any semblance of sense.

Dan: I wasn't really happy to see any of the main ghosts, so I'll say the tomb vamps that were there to wreak havoc on the founding fathers. At least they brought back a storyline that was interesting once upon a time.

Eric: Mason Lockwood! Not because I miss his character, but he rekindled a friendship that glues this show together. Go back to question number-one for further explanation. Closer runner up was, of course, Jasmine Guy. Anything even remotely resembling Dead Like Me always gets you bonus points in my book.

Which main character (Tyler, Katherine, Klaus, Rebekah) did you miss the most?

Matt: Sorry, but I'm gonna cheat and combine them all. They are all tied in to the main storyline on season three. Is it fine to take a break from the typical VD madness for a week? Absolutely. But my frustration here is that this break didn't even involve any main players, and was madder than usual! Slow things down to focus on one core relationship or something, don't speed the series up by tossing random ghosts at us.

Steve: Rebekah. See previous week's testosterone-fueled Round Table.

Dan: Klaus. The answer to that will always be Klaus for me. I didn't get to hear one "rippahh" this week.

Eric:Unless Rebekah was planning on showing up in a cheerleading uniform, I'm totally on team Klaus. That guy perfectly combines creepy and fun for me every week.

More random development: Lexi's detox skills, Damon's convertible ride, Mason's entire storyline or Jeremy's love for Anna?

Matt: Everything involving Mason was more confusing than Taylor Kinney's girlfriend's typical attire.

Steve: Amazingly, Jeremy's obsession with Anna, while a bit overblown considering they dated for like one week while she was alive, may have been the most believable of these options, since it was at least rooted in... something. I thought Stefan endured decades of misery and discipline to cure himself of his ripper ways with Lexi's help. Now there's an accelerated Detox program? Mason's reappearance still takes the randomness cake, however. He showed up to torture Damon (who somehow escaped that chair like nothing happened), then enlisted his help to go find a secret weapon to kill Klaus that he heard about on the other side, then vanished. Because ... he needed redemption? I trust the writers have a grander narrative in mind for the season as a whole, so I'll reserve some judgment. In the interim, though, it's hard to see this being done any worse.

Dan: Lexi's detox skills. Seriously, she just has these abilities all of the sudden? Okay... if she does, why wasn't Elena asking her what the heck she was doing, so she could attempt to do the same when Lexi left? I will be glad if another ghost never steps foot in Mystic Falls ever again.

Eric: Please, Damon has always had a nice convertible. Pick up your season 1 DVD. Now when Jeremy managed to fall head over heels for a former stalker he couldn't stand, that one will remain a mystery. Though we always want what we can't have. And I'm pretty sure ghosts fit in that category. Now, like Dan, I just want them to never show up again,

The Vampire Diaries Season 6: How Will Elena Cope?

What can viewers expect from The Vampire Diaries Season 6? SPOILERS AHEAD!

I loved the episode, no Klaus drama for a chgane. What I would like to comment on is the fact that you'd like to see Matt and Bonnie hook up and, if you weren't aware of what the books say, Matt and Bonnie have real chemistry so, sooner or later they will hook up in the books, and I would like to see them hook up on the show as well.

Elena is right. Anna is a ghost. Jer feelings are from de past. Jer is confused.
You can not spend his life with a ghost.
Jeremiah also has grown enough and did not have to listen to elena.
anna has lied and stolen from Jer. Anna has never said that she loves Jer.
Anna wanted to be her mother.
If Jer Anna would love so he would have the chance to live with her,
if he would kill himself.
This has not jer, that means for me to love Anna can not be so great.

One thing I hated was Elena judging Jeremy for wanting to be a ghost. She is not one to judge, to be honest. What's the difference between dating a ghost and vampire? None, except at least for a vampire it is visibly present to others. Elena's saying to not date a ghost because it will hold him back, being with someone that will never grow old with him. Isn't that what Elena's doing with Stefan? Or what she did, and is trying to hold on to, anyways. Sorry I just find her condescending.

Where are the tv fanatic police? I don't want to read comments from Stacey and Blake calling anyone else the words that they used. Nobody is wrong for having an opinion. The language used by them is unexceptable. Wow, if the comments aren't removed and they aren't banned, I'm sure I'm not the only one who will leave

Bonnie has not ended the relationship.
they said to Jeremiah, "he should go away."
For me this is not the end of a relationship ??????????
For the authors, perhaps.
The authors have neglected all the time Beremy, now I know why.
Because Anna.
If Jer Anna loves and wants to be with her,
he can stand before a bus and then to Anna.
He has only made the necklace.

I do not think that Matt and Bonnie come together.
Bonnie has not only once but twice said "I love Jeremy."
This may not be the end. The only reason why everyone loves Anna or want to have back in the show is:
She has chemistry with Jer
This stupid reason you hear of any Anna fans. In TVD is not long relationship. should only anna and Jer until the end of her stay together ?
That does not even work for stelena.
anna what should come back ?
In season 3, the original vampires are treated, what is there a role for anna play ??
Guest Cast Anna is 6 times in 7 episodes occurred,
Principal Cast Bonnie alairic, Matt, Klaus is only 5 times occurred.
I think the writers take on with this anna thing, just because they are so much fans.
I just wonder why she has so many fans ?????????
