The ironic part is, before they brought Klaus into the picture and even a little bit after, TVD was a world where everybody can die. Pretty much everybody in the cast was dispensable except for Elena, Stefan, and later Damon, which was enjoyable to watch because people that you'd never expect to die actually do. Now they hardly ever kill anybody important, and even if they do they come back somehow anyway.
I'd say this problem began with the Season One Finale. They went "OMG PEOOPLE DIE!!!" and then at start of S2 they just...backed away from all of that and started to pull their punches, introducing pointless characters for the sake of killing them off, while getting new ways to keep the existing ones alive...That was the start of the downfall of this show. Writers were unable TO CHANGE the show and wanted to just keep doing more of the same. Katherine's apeparance SHOULD have changed everything. They made sure it did not and started to break the show.

Klaus didnt die, he's dehydrated. So he may appear later on if sb hydrates him with blood.....

Amazing episode. I loved every scene and every minute of it, everyone had made a great job. Everything was awesome and all the characters had a good storyline in this episode. I loved, loved it & loved it. I can't find words to tell how much I enjoyed and loved tis episode. :) :) ;)

This is what I think. When they stopped Klaus' heart he was transferred into Jeremy. So, Jeremy is really Klaus. Evilaric could not kill Elena because he still cared for her. When Elena said if I die you die, Evilaric agreed because he did not want anyone to know he still had a side that cared. As Jeremy, Klaus will win over Caroline. When everyone realizes that Jeremy is really Klaus, they will get Klaus' body back and do a transfer. Then the actor that played Klaus will be back.

I keep getting cut off!

As I was saying, as for this "Last, Evilaric is shaping up to be a good villain, but I fear that they are going to do what they did with Klaus and keep him around too long, considering that the only way" to kill him is to kill Elena, which they obviously can't do, so the writers have written themselves into a corner and they'll probably have to use a certain walking deus ex machina witch to get themselves out of it.

The reason Klaus is such as problem is that his predictability kills interest. In most every story with a hero vs a villain you already know that the the hero is going to win, people don't watch/read entertainment for that, they watch to see HOW the hero will win, and if the villain, hero, or both is predictable, the story loses any entertainment value it could have.

Oh, and as for this "Last, Evilaric is shaping up to be a good villain, but I fear that they are going to do what they did with Klaus and keep him around too long, considering that the only wa" I meant to write next, the only way they can kill him is to kill Elena, which they obviously can't do, so the writers have written themselves into a corner.

I agree with this (BoredNow)...Last, Evilaric is shaping up to be a good villain, but I fear that they are going to do what they did with Klaus and keep him around too long.

Julie Plec and Co have attachment issues. They don't know how to let go of characters. And nearly every single character has now become a plot device., it's not just Bonnie anymore. When Tyler was breaking his sire bond, they didn't even show the effect it had on his mom, like they did when she found out he was a hybrid. He just disappeared and came back as the finale drew near.

And I agree with this (Amie)...You know watching how Klaus was busy destroying Elena's and Jeremy's house I couldn't help but notice that...WHY THE HELL IS THIS HAPPENING IN BROAD DAY LIGHT? This scene was juvenile and made no sense. Klaus should have tried to get Elena in a more creative and badass way. But that would have been too much work for the writers.

@Allison Thanks for the clarification. One thing that I really love about this show is that they really try to be consistent.

I am now thinking that Alaric has a major weakness, the sun. I wonder if it would be possible for them to get him out in the sun long enough that he would get to a point where he would be incapacitated. Could he heal after a prolonged exposure if he were deprived of blood? It would be gruesome. Maybe Ric will have to get his own daylight ring. Just a thought...

1) Klaus is not dead. They made his heart stop beating, so he's "asleep" like Mikael was (and the tomb vampires in S1). So he can be among the living again as soon as someone drops some fresh blood down his throat :-)

2) You're right. Kill the Original -> all of his/her offsping die too. But as mentioned: Klaus is not dead.

3) I guess they are partying because Klaus needs help so walk and talk (and murder) again. Remember that Katherine gave Mikael blood to revitalize him. Rebekah and Elijah are (at this point) unaware of their brother's fate, so there's no help (yet). So the Mystic Falls gang won a battle, not the war ;-) But I couldn't understand the party either. To freeze the one vampire able to help stopping Badlaric seems kinda stupid to me...
