Okay, everyone! I know this is really late, as in … there’s a new episode tonight late, but I watched it last night and I didn’t want to combine the posts because where’s the fun in that, right? So just rewind your brains to last week for me, let’s chat about that episode and it’ll help get us pumped up for tonight. Deal? Awesome.
Okay, so let’s start with the vampire lair, which I am totally into and I think is yet another great addition to this show. I love that there are now a whole host of enemies, each with their own agendas but who are loosely affiliated, so that Damon can remain kind of bad while still being an uneasy ally. It’s good for the story. Plus … dude, I love vampire fights. Pearl is so badass, and the fight in the Salvatore house was great too. I’m interested by the fact that Stefan is always the staker, but I did get a good laugh at Damon going to burn the body and sarcastically asking Stefan for a little help.
Obviously, the most fascinating part of the vampire lair was Anna and Jeremy, and how she seems to maybe genuinely have feelings for him, and of course, him figuring out and testing her secret. The entire time, I was like, what the fuck is happening here? What’s his angle? But I guess I couldn’t have been trying THAT hard to figure it out or I wouldn’t have been as shocked as I was by the ending, where he tells Anna he wants her to turn him. WHAT?!?! I definitely had a “Whoa!” moment there. And I was surprised he mentioned Vickie again. Does anyone have any thoughts on that? Do you think he still has that night in subconscious, or do you think he just hopes she’s still out there? Do you think he wants to be with Anna, or do you think this is all a weird way of still being in love with Vickie? Theories there, anyone?
I liked the double date, mostly because I do want to see Stefan and Elena just hanging out and having fun. I’m not entirely sure that a double date with Matt and Caroline was the most relaxing way to spend an evening, but okay. I am totally on board for a Stefan and Matt friendship, and steps taken that way work for me. Caroline was definitely acting like a crazy person, as Matt rightfully pointed out, but I was glad things were smoothed out in the end because we all know how much I love that couple.
But man, Matt’s mom is such a bitch, AND such a ho. Dangerous combo, my friends. I was pretty grossed out by her and Damon, but then I was way more awkwarded out when Matt and friends caught her climbing Damon like a tree. Not that we wouldn’t all want to, but COME ON. Gross. I was a little more skeeved before I remembered that he didn’t actually hook up with Vickie, just had a dance party, and then I was all like, sigh … the dance party. That was nice. We should really do that again soon. At this point, though, I’m just not really sure what she’s doing there. I mean, I get that her boyfriend ditched her, but in terms of the show … why is she here? I’m sure we’ll find out soon enough, though.
So, I thought this was a good episode. A nice mix of light and dark with a good shocker ending. (Not that kind of shocker, you pervs … what am I going to do with you? Although there might have been TWO shocker endings if Damon and HoMom hadn’t gotten interrupted. ZING!) What did you guys think? Favorite moments? Pet theories? Other thoughts? Lay it on me in the comments and get pumped for tonight!
