Well, Season 3 spoliers are here courtesy of tvfanatic.com and they come in a great time where my patience is running thin. I need my TVD fix and I want it NOW.
Big question answered “who will be Elena and Jeremy’s guardian now that aunt Jenna is dead?” Well, due to a small time jump Elena will be celebrating her 18 birthday and so can be a guardian for Jeremy. Another thing to make it worth the wait is this season will finally be the season where we will see A LOT of Elena and Damon together, according to producer Julie Plec Elena will be facing a big problem with her undeniable attraction to Damon while she is trying to find Stephan.
Stephan will be busy being a bad ass and apparently playing with an old acquaintance of him vampire Rebecca who is more than excited to see the “Ripper” back. On other news tyler and Caroline will be breaking new ground in their friendship as their families feud and the whole”matt is ok with Caroline being a vampire ” thing needs to play out.
I don’t know about you but it sounds like a hell of a season, but then again did The Vampire Diaries staff and crew ever disappoint us ? the answer is hell no!
I am so giddy right now I have to say it : yepee Delena 4 everFollow @lonestarjrs
Dedicated to my amazing supporter Amani Rabah : you are awesome
It took me a while to write about last week’s The Vampire Diaries episode recap , I needed time for what happened to sink in. Without hesitation ” The Sun Also Rises” is the best episode of TVD to date. The death toll was shocking 4 were killed and only 2 broke my heart. I sobbed during this episode and as the episode finished i had to take time to breath and take in the intensity of this episode.
The darkness started with Caroline and Matt fighting off Tyler the wolf and i was like “Oh Holy ****” boy how little did i know. That ended with Tyler being shot and wounded which allowed Caroline and Matt to make a run for it. I understand that Caroline loves Matt I really do but I don’t understand why. After turning into this amazing vampire she is not Caroline anymore but in a way maybe Matt is her connection to innocence and humanity.
Later Tyler is found lying naked on the floor -that poor guy if that is not a lesson of humility I don’t know what is- and Caroline helps him by covering him up, she is such a great friend, she started the series as annoying and insecure then blossomed into awesome character. turning into a vampire was the best thing that ever happened to her, but Matt doesn’t think so he’s calling Tyler “that thing” and looks at Caroline like she’s a freak and I understand.
Now to the Sacrifice; If there is a creeper setting and a creepier guy than Klaus I haven’t seen it. I expected Klaus to be bad-ass like Elijah but he is really deviant and selfish more than anything else. Elijah is the one that really scares the crap out of me . I knew the sacrifice wont end well but i didn’t expect the sacrifice to work, i kept expecting something to go wrong but Jules got her heart ripped out quickly and swiftly – a moment i waited for so long to see, she was mean to Damon.
and then came Jenna , oh Sara Canning I am sorry i took you for granted. Sara Canning delivered this episode she was amazing. The heart to heart between her and Elena was touching and though it was ominous i really wished she’d make it for her,Elena’s, Alaric’s and Jeremy’s sake sadly i was mistaken. Stephan offered himself instead of Jenna and redeemed himself for the parade of wussy decisions he has made in the past few episodes.I didn’t envy Elena for the devastating heartache she needed to bear. How do you choose? what was she hoping for in that instant? Klaus refused because he has “plans” for Stephan, cue storyline for season 3 🙂
Standing surrounded by fire Elena witnessed her only guardian die as she is engulfed with tears Jenna says it’s O.K and i think it’s to soon for Jenna to be O.k with death but then she heads for Greta as she pieces the puzzle together and tries to take her out Klaus outsmarts her and stakes her in the back and Elena breaks my heart as she yells out “Jenna NO!” damn you Nina Dobrev and her cries are helpless Elena knows there is nothing she can do now -reaching for tissue-.As I am being broken to pieces with Elena she says “just turn it off, you wont be scared anymore” and I am in despair, damn you TVD writers .
Jenna dies as a vampire and it kills me that she died such an ugly death with no goodbye so cruel and sudden, again Sara Canning i will miss you. As Elena has the life sucked out of her she dies in front of Stephan 😦 and then Bonnie comes to the rescue i have never been happier to see Bonnie and boy was she strong. As Klaus is being thrown around Elijah is turns up and proceeds to finish the job as promised and then we discover Klaus kept the bodies of his family and can tell elijeh where to find them and Whoosh! he disappears with Klaus. Now we have a werewolf-vampire hybrid and a family of originals to deal with.
back at the creepy witchy house Damon carries Elena in and tenderly strokes her hair pleading that she wont be a vampire, say what you will but Damon is a passionate he really loves Elena the heat is undeniable. Alaric asks news of Jenna and Damon delivers it without words just a simple shake and i ask how can you say it ? a shake was good enough. Another woman disappears from Alaric’s life with no goodbye…I love Matt Davis, I just do.
Elena wakes up and John Gilbert loses his life force and hits the ground, no runs out to see him, cry for him or even carry him, David Anders i hope TV will realize your worth and will keep you around, great talent.
All wraps up in the funeral scene and as all is laid to rest Damon’s bite still stirs, he tells Stephan what’s going on and Stephan is at loss of what to do,And as Damon walks away looking massively dashing in his suit a little hello from the director Paul M. Sommers in the words “Paul Sommers rest in peace”.
I’ll leave you with next week’s promo. who will save Damon and what more can happen after this week’s stellar episode . “As I Lay Dying” we all thought it would be Elena but the capable writers proved us wrong. What will the world of Damon’s hallucination bring, why is Bonnie crying and bleeding. Will someone else die ?
