the most ridiculous thing about this episode was oh the terror for Elena to have killed someone .... oh my god. She has been in what seems like 231423214 situations where she had a hand in killing people , people around her got killed because of her and now she is crying like a baby because she killed someone who was after her .. dont buy it.


i was suprised conner didnt come back to life somehow at the end of the episode, though i only just realised that it was BECAUSE of him dying that jeremy's tatoo showed up


Am looking forward to seeing Elena make her first kill, but am a little disappointed that everytime she tries to learn to be a 'responsible' vampire, someone or something puts her on the path to becoming a 'ripper' or worse, like judgy Bonnie at the frat party. 'You let her get completely out of control' she bleats to Damon, at least she didn't kill anyone, and if she is going to feed, of course it should be the 'douche' who spikes some poor girl's drink with a drug. Now we find out that killing one of the Five will have consequences. The story seems to predict that either a 'cure'is found for Elena or she destroys herself. Couldn't the writers have waited until she finished university, got married and had a child (or two) at least then she'd be following in Katherine and Isobel's footsteps? Elena becoming a vampire seems to be the trigger for everyone to start running around to find a cure or a reversal.
On a side note, it would be nice to hear more of Katherine's experiences or to find out more about the spell that turned the Originals into vampires, because that would reveal more about Elena and Katherine's origins, the Petrova family, and of course Tatia. She, or Katherine have not had a voice in the series so far. On an even further side note,I always thought that Rebekah's hatred of Elena, which started even before she met/ attacked her in the gym was a little extreme, and she throws in a comment ' the Original one (Tatia) was much prettier', which makes me think she was friends with her. (Maybe) Tatia betrayed her too, after all she did put a rift between her two brothers, and caused all of their deaths/transitions into vampires. We know that Rebekah has always craved a normal human life.and I'm rambling again.


I am really disappointed Connor is gone already. Him and Evil Alaric were the only villians in quite a while that seemed like geniune threats to the characters on the show, in the longest while. They didn't really care about collateral damage and didn't have ridiculous emotional weaknesses (like the originals).
Take Klaus for example when he first showed up he was a real threat, trying and at times succeding to take out multiple characters. Yet now that he has been around for a while he doesn't command that same fear. Tyler broke his sire bond, repeatedly stands up to him, is dating the girl he has a crush on. Yet Klaus just lets him live. Why hasn't he killed him? He is in such a power position that even if he did Stefan would still help him go for the cure. A few episodes ago it was because he wouldn't be able to make more hybrids. Yet he has the oppertunity now and cares less for the ones he has, Sending Dean in to die without a second thought.

PLEASE TVD get more villians who are actual threats. Not just wanting to be loved haha.


I still don't know what to tink about the episode. There were some good things, but there were also many bad things...

What I liked
Elena being badass (even though it was just for three seconds).
Matt and Jeremy bromance.
Salvatore brothers teaming up once more. Yay!

What I didn't like
Connor being killed so soon - TVD continues to throw interesting, promising characters away.
Hayley (don't know why, the character just doesn't work for me yet).
Tyler's explanation - if the only reason he didn't tell Caroline anything was to leave Klaus in the dark, why did he keep EVERYTHING secret? This was either lazy writing or Tyler lying.
Elena's constant wailing.

Again, I'm not sure what to think about this episode. But I definitely liked the action, the pace :-)


A few good parts but I didn't like it.


I like this show and this ep was a 5 stars but I hate the way they kill off characters who were introduced as very old/powerful/bad-ass, so fast and so easily. Connor's death reminded me of Luka and his dad's and so many others. It's just a waste, we hardly get to know the characters and their stories, it's like "hey meet this awesome and mysterious new character, guess what he's up to?!" Then zip! He's dead! As for the characters who serve as plot devices, where is Dr Fell? Has Bonnie got a life except for fixing any related-to-Stelemon-problems?


Great episode. I actually liked Elana in this - she kicked ass (Damon and her would make a good team). I hope she stays this way. Didn't see it coming when she killed Connor. Also like that Damon is helping look for the cure for Stefan's sake, not Elena's - Team Salvatore - shows they still love each other.


The best part of this episode was The Salvatores brothers's last conversation. Screw the pseudo love triangle, I am team Salvatore brothers, because they may fight and argue and literally tear each other's heart's out, but at the end of the day, they still love each other as brothers! It makes me really sad that they are both in love with the psycho idiot called Elena who has sooo many issues, its really sad.

Also was so glad to see Caroline! And Klaus is just THAT good, he can be a million miles away but he is still the puppet master, and everyone is his bitch! Haha,love it!


Bonnie's story is technically more interesting than Elena and Caroline but since TIIC don't give two shits and she only there to feel minority quota and be a plot device, it makes it frustrated even as a Bonnie fan to put up with her mishandled storylines.
As for Shane right now with that hypnotizing stuff, am I finally getting my phantom/Caleb Morley storyline with Bonnie. I did enjoy him because I don't think Shane is some regular human who loves witch history. He more interesting compare to the current men who are all whiny bitches (including Damon).
