@Haley--In my notes, I wondered whether the wolf was Hayley and she was somehow able to shift, but then I remembered that she saw a wolf by the pool last week AND the witch saw the wolf. And we heard the wolf in the distance while Hayley was standing upright. And she wasn't naked when she found her way back to Klaus and Rebekah. So there's definitely a wolf there following her around.
I think Klaus not pining over Caroline right now is because before leaving Mystic Falls he made it clear to her that he cared about her and that they had an eternity to find their way to one another. He's not waiting on her but that doesn't mean he won't be there when she's ready. Meh. I can be okay with him being into Cami because it doesn't mean he's *not* into Caroline. She's just not there.
And yes, the "Klaus has a thing for blondes and his sister is a blonde and can't have a man" thing? Not lost on me. Not at all.
@Keith Vlasak--I definitely agree with you that the notion that Brennan would hold onto a photo from when she was 8 was forced sentimentality. Brennan wouldn't have done that. Had she told Angela that while cleaning out a box of stuff Max brought her, she found the magazine page, sure, I would've bought it. But that she actively kept it? No. Not for a million years would Brennan have done that. But that's part of the revisionist history of the character which I despise and tried to stay away from in this review lest it cloud the entire episode (and next weeks' wedding, which I've had the pleasure of seeing already).
And I personally wouldn't say that Booth brought out the "real" woman in Brennan. Of course I wouldn't. That's crap. But he HAS brought out a different side of her. He has caused her to change her views on life and relationships and love. THAT has happened. It doesn't make her any more or less a "real" woman. It just makes her a different person from when this all started.
@highland0wolf--I actually thought interspersing scenes from the pilot with fresh material was a great way to 1) remind viewers what they'd seen in the pilot and 2) inform those tuning in for the first time.
I think Elijah will be back sooner rather than later, especially since next week seems to be flashbacks. We'll see him out of the coffin soon.
As for Kol, even though he wasn't supposed to have been daggered until 1912, I can fanwank that he didn't want to go with his siblings so Klaus daggered him and dragged him along and undaggered him when they got to New Orleans. Meh. It's kind of a technicality to me.
@cay--I almost speculated that last night. That they set Rachel up with the part only to have her world crash around her next week. Really, they've set everyone's worlds up to bring them crashing down. And yes, Santana's ad was amazing, as was every time she actually said "yeast-i-stat" with a straight face.
@suz--yeah, I mean, the typical high school stuff like that is snark-worthy, but then also not. It's been done and it's been snarked. So until it has a serious impact on the story, it's sort of meh for me.
@anon--nope, not a new reviewer. I'm just finding that these first two episodes haven't been as awful as many last season, probably due to the fact that with Monteith's death, they've had to really pay attention to the series and rework the stories.
@osofine--I don't think Sweets is leaving the show. He was in the previews for next week's Pelant episode.
