The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "My Brother's Keeper"

by at . Comments

HOT DELENA SEX! HOT DELENA SEX! HOT DELENA SEX!

Sorry, we got distracted there for a second, as The Vampire Diaries provided plenty of fodder for our Round Table team - comprised of staffers Matt Richenthal, Leigh Raines, Steve Marsi and Miranda Wicker - to discuss in "My Brother's Keeper."

Highlighted by a certain closing scene that exposed both secrets and skin...

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

What was your favorite scene from the episode?
Matt: Stefan prompting Jeremy to kill that newly-turned vampire, no doubt. That was some seriously intense stuff and it furthered the show's best storyline at the moment: Jeremy's murderous urges and that ever-growing mark.

Leigh: I love Tyler, but I found myself oddly drawn to the scenes between Klaus and Caroline. I think there's a chemistry there, whether Caroline like it or not. He was the only person keeping her calm and entertained during the pageant.

Steve: Klaus making his move on Caroline. Being the most powerful creature on Earth only gets you so far when it comes to women apparently ... fool's gotta run game like anyone else (if only we all had that accent). Second place? Jeremy morphing into a mini-Connor before our eyes. Third place? Any scene with Hayley for obvious reasons, if you get what I'm insinuating. What I'm insinuating is that she's not unattractive.

Miranda: It feels too easy to say Damon and Elena, but I've been waiting for that since the balcony on The Vampire Diaries Season 3. I also really loved Klaus and Caroline and almost, for half a second, started to think they should give a relationship the old college try. I kind of think I wouldn't hate it if they did. Bonus favorite scene: Matt moving in with Jeremy. Was his house finally foreclosed on? Was he finally evicted? I mean, I can't imagine he was making enough at The Grill to pay that bill every month.

More likely to hook up: Matt and April, Stefan and Caroline or Hayley and Tyler?
Matt: I have no clue how Tyler will be able to resist Hayley after seeing her in that dress (especially if she breaks out the Australian accent soon), until I remember that he's dating the amazing Caroline Forbes. Matt, meanwhile, is way too nice to get down and dirty with anyone... so let's give it up for Scaroline, everyone! They will soon drown their sorrows over Delena by drowning in one another's hot bods!

Leigh: Hayley and Tyler for sure. Hayley wants it, Tyler is gonna get mad at Caroline inevitably over something Klaus related. Plus, you don't bring Phoebe Tonkin to guest star on your show if you're not gonna show off her sexy side!

Steve: Matt and April, without a doubt. Who's NOT waiting for that? TVD water cooler topic of the spring, mark my words.

Miranda: More likely? Hayley and Tyler. Paws down. But I'm hoping Matt, April and Jeremy become the new triangle. I could see there being something supernatural about her where she's the only one who can help him control his urge to hunt.

The Delena sex scene: All you ever dreamed about, or a total letdown?
Matt: As I mentioned once or two dozen times in my Vampire Diaries review of the episode, any positive feelings I possessed over these two were wiped away by the siring nonsense. Was the scene scorching? Of course. But my brow was more furrowed over Caroline and Stefan's discussion than any other body parts of mine were... nevermind.

Leigh: Hot hot hot! I don't ship one brother over the other. Well done. I enjoyed how it started off with the dancing. And I wonder if Ian and Nina's offscreen chemistry makes it easier onscreen.

Steve: See last night's Vampire Diaries review by Matt for my sentiments exactly. Hot, sure, but a total letdown thanks to the contrived sire bond, a twist made even more lame by Caroline's drawn-out epiphany. Sorry, C. Not even you could sell me on that.

Miranda: All I ever dreamed about. And more. I don't for one second buy the "The Sire Bond Made Me Do It" angle. Not even a little bit. And I'm actually kind of peeved that even now there's still some angle for WHY she has feelings for Damon. It's okay for her to have feelings for Damon, and those feelings existed before she was turned even if she wouldn't admit it. He never said "Hey, VampElena, have feelings for me and me only." Sire bond, schmire bond. THAT WAS HOT.

What is Professor Shane's endgame?
Matt: Easy. He wants to un-sire all hybrids? Maybe kill Klaus? Find a cure and put an end to the existence of vampires, if not every supernatural in the world? He's working undercover for TNT, trying to get The Vampire Diaries canceled.

Leigh: Well, he wants all of the hybrids un-sired... so it's safe to say he knows about Klaus. Perhaps he wants to cure Klaus? Hunt him? Certainly wouldn't make him the first person with such desires.

Steve: If he played a role in murdering the entire council, which he kind of obviously did, his endgame can't be as simple as killing Klaus for the sake of it. Maybe he just wants that charming Original out of the way so he can have the Cure all to himself. Shane mentored Connor in addition to Bonnie, so he's gotta be after that first and foremost.

Miranda: Either he IS Silas, or he wants to awaken Silas. And he's hellbent on destruction. I don't trust him.

What would you hope to accomplish as Miss Mystic Falls?
Matt: World peace is probably out, considering the events that take place in this town alone. I'd probably start a Stay in School campaign. Seriously, when was the last time these seniors attended class?!?

Leigh: To just keep breathing. In this town, you never know when your time is up! Also, I'd open up another hangout besides the Mystic Grill. We need a little variety.

Steve: The way things are going these days? Living long enough to hand the crown to Miss Mystic Falls 2013. That and modernizing the school's mascot ... the 1994 Minnesota Timberwolves called, guys, they want their logo back.

Miranda: World Peace? Life insurance policies for workers at The Grill? A truancy officer to check on why all these kids aren't attending school? Making sure no one ever cares that all these teenagers are drinking in public?

I'll just copy and paste what I worte in the review: ughhh I'm so pissed! Caroline was so annoying this ep, except when she was with klaus..it was as if she was her human self again..and her stupid chat with Stephen ruined the EPIC momen that was elena and damon sex! Why did they have to ruin it with this stupid sire thing?? It was all making sense, her feelings for Damon were heigtned..she only started agreeing with him in this ep and she never acted like his slave! At least the sire bond can't make her have feelings right? I mean, none of the hybrids fell in love with klaus or anything..and plus, I thought they were sired to klaus because they werethankfull that they wouldn't feel pain of having to turn..why would elena be sired to Damon?? I hope they find out that their theory is wrong!

Cure Klaus,leigh that is a really cool idea. Wonder how that would play out.

First of all, Elena is a vampire now...you cannot expect her to think like when she was human! second, SHE FELL IN LOVE WITH DAMON last year and that's why she made out with him while she was still human...if Jeremy hadn't interrupted them that night, they would hava slept together again...im 100 percent sure of that! so don't you all see that the sire bond thing is like Julie Plec said, a tiny obstacle for Delena in their long and torturing path towards happiness? it just adds a little suspence because without this element, the show would be over for good...living happily ever after!Elena loves Damon and that's gonna have to be questionned for now only to be more juicy and interesting! so no worries...!

Ok guys it Has obviously been longer than One day. In TVD it could have been a week that passed or 2 weeks however at least it was 2 days because the episode takes place in a 2 day time frame with Caroline telling her to meet her at the pageant tomorrow. Even if was just 2 days after Elena and Stefan broke up, this couple had been drifting apart since she turned, now is that because of the sire bond? I honestly don't think so. Looking back at when Tyler was sired to Klaus sure he felt loyal to Klaus and would obey an order from him, that didn't effect how Tyler felt about Caroline. And at no point in the season did Damon tell Elena to love him or when they were together to have sex with him. That was all them. The reason E/S relationship wasn't working anymore is because he was keeping secrets from her and honestly couldn't deal with her being a vampire and wanted to find a way to fix her rather than help her. It also doesn't help that the feelings she had for Damon seemed to amplify to the point were her love for Stefan was being overshadowed by her love for Damon. Again the sire bond makes you loyal to a person, makes you obey their orders, but does not make you love them.

Of course it has to do with Nina and Ian, I notice that each scene was not acted, the scene was excellent because Nina and Ian are dating, then it not had to act to make the scene.

Is no one upset that Stefan and Elena broke up and one day later she sleeps with Damon. Whats wrong with everyone that's not OK. It's terrible. I really right can't stand either of them. It's just after all this brother bonding Damon throws it all away. and Elena telling Stefan that He was the best choice she ever made and then off with Damon. I don't care how much you love delena and hate Stefan. This was just the worst. And for everyone to be happy about it (well minus the sire bond whatever) is crazy. You don't do this to your brother or someone you were suppose to love a day ago.Just roar....
