from the moment I saw Elena acting all normal about Jeremy my mind went "The Body". it was also the techniques used in that episode that made it a ripoff. The Body had absolutely no music elements the entire time. TVD didn't go for the obvious way of doing the same but they reduced the amount of music background significantly. and also, is it just me or does Silas seem like the long lost, least intimidating brother of the First?

@Luana honey, welcome to the postgrad world! the second semester is the worst :/

LOL, she won't be evil Elena, she will just be bitchy which would be totally justifiable when her the other 99% of her family died in s2..but now it will just annoying

Evil?lOL.For turning evil you have to have some personality first.Elena is a blank slate.

 , is it just me or does Silas seem like the long lost, least intimidating brother of the First?

 

The dude from what I hear appears as dead ghosts, right? The First worked as a villain because it was ~4 seasons in the making, had very unique premise and was something you CAN'T win against, ever. 

And from what I heard they are ripping off Willow's FIVE SEASONS WORTH OF CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT into half-a-season storyline for Bonnie?

 

 

This will fail so hard. I am suddenly remembering Buffy's quote about Harmony and it fits so well with Plec.

Plec tried to rip off Angelus storyline with Steffdward, she was BAAAAD at it. Plec tried to rip off spuffy with DE, SHE WAS EVEN WORSE at it.  This is setting up for disappointment and trainwreck of epic proportions.

My account got deactivated so now I have to start all over again as a complete newcomer. Don't know what happened, Damn! Anyway, this episode did'nt do me any justice. Jeremy dying, Silas shape shifting, Bonnie talking about killing 12 people to bring back the dead supernaturals,Damon compelling Elena to turn off her humanity, burning up the house with Jeremy in it along with her diary. She didnt even take any clothes or her car keys. It's really getting to be too damn much! Now what???? Soooo, from the promos, Elena is wilding out, biting people and shit like that. She's even comfortable standing around naked in front of the Salvator brothers. Come on!!!! Is this the way she was before her parents died? I don't think so. She may have been a bit of aparty girl, but this is ridiculous. The writers don't know what the hell else to do with this story. They keep killing off family members & sire bonding just to give the main characters something off brand to do. I'm not looking forward to seeing Elena acting like a damn idiot.

Dont'worry, Elena is a secret millionaire and all of that which you have described will no effect what so ever in terms of her financial situation....please the show stopped worrying about real issues a looooong time ago, hence why I LOLed when Elena talked about a 'cover story'.

The writers are trying so badly to get us to feel anything for this girl - first they killed off most of her family in order for us to feel sympathy towards this poor girl but in reality they failed because those deaths had no affect on Elena what so ever in s2 and 3, she just continued to be an annoying selfish idiot. Then they turn her in hopes of making her a vampire badass but she turns out to be a helpless as possible and everyone still bend out backwards for her....now they are going to make her into Katherine 2.0 (or I see it that way)...but I think she will turn out to be just an annoying bitch.....before she was just an annoying idiot...

The only thing I got from everything I know about this shitty storyline is that Julie Plec spent too much time hanging out with another shitty writer, Sera Gamble, and thus decided that she needs to rip off Sera Gamble's Soulless-Sam trainwreck storyline for Plec's precious Elena.

@Amie, Yeah, you're right that now she's going to be an annoying bitch. The story have taken a nose dive from first being interesting, having love connections, stopping some murders ,loving the music, being sympathetic, evoking laughter at times, rescuing the protagonist & some of her friends, & etc......But now, it has turned into a lot of bullshit. This season is really pissing me off. I get anxious to watch the show on Thursdays and get left with......"WTF". So now, like Damon said; Here We Go! I'm sick of the Silas crap, Shane crap, Elena crap, even the Salvator brothers crap(although I still adore Stefan). No wonder Elijah havent shown his face in Mystic Falls. Everybody is running around like chickens with their heads cut off just like what Katherine said. I'm ready for some passion, redemption, forgiveness, Bonnie badass action without the nose bleeds, Rebekah finally having a passionate relationship with Matt(if he can get down from his high horse & Elena worshipping), Katherine coming back & showing Damon what a real woman is all about, & Stefan & Elena connecting again. One of the problems with this show is that their is too damn many real life relationships off camera. Stefan & the Doc. Damon & Elena, Matt & Caroline was dating for a minute, etc. Torrey probably got a little jealous of Paul & Nina kissing & carrying on. Then Damon did'nt want to see Nina & Paul making out, so things got a little to uncomfortable. They kind of complained & here comes the sire bond, Problem solved!!! They broke that up real quick.

I just think they all could not give a rat's ass anymore about the characters their are playing because they are enjoying and sulking in the starlight s1 and parts of s2 put them all into and now they are sort of like the GG cast when after s2 they could not care less about the show's plot going in a complete shit hole...but even if they don't have any say in the script, at least deliver in the acting department. Ian is involved in his foundations, Nina has started appearing more and more on the red carpet and Paul in interviews always talks about wanting to go into directing movies...so yeah. I mean, when I am reading right not the praises Nina gets for the last episode, I am like yeah she delivered but still it does not cover for the other episodes where she sounds bored with every line she says.

 

As for the real life romances....I don't think it has to do with someone feeling jealous or uncomfortable....Nina and Paul were playing a couple and kissing and making out long before Nina and Ian started dating....anway, Nian does not do it for me on-screen or of-screen, I am more into Monchele (both on-screen and off-screen) - there I buy the love in both persons 125%!

If Plec dreams of writing like anyone, why Whedon :S There are tons of much greater writers and directors...

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
