The Vampire Diaries - Plan B review/recap

We just want to begin this review by saying that if you don’t watch this show, you don’t even know. What don’t you know? How awesome it is. The only mediocre episodes were the first three. After those, the show has been beyond fantastic. This episode was even better than that.

In this episode, Damon questioned and killed Mason by torturing him and ripping out his heart. Nice to know Damon is still evil… We liked how Jeremy kept trying to object. We were sad when Damon killed Mason, and not just because Mason was hot. We have Jeremy for that now. We like new, proactive, not useless Jeremy. He’s gotten hotter too, with age. When Bonnie got a vision from Mason’s mind that the moonstone was hidden in a well on the Lockwood property, Stefan went to retrieve it. He jumped down and found that Mason had hidden the stone a pool of vervain with snakes in it. We LOVE that this show has (for the most part) pretty smart characters. Elena, who followed Stefan against his wishes, saved him and got the stone. Nice. Caroline was able to convince her mother to love her despite her new vampirism. It was extremely touching and had both of us teary. Even though Caroline and her mother bonded and talked like never before, Caroline was able to make the mature decision to compel her mother to forget it all, in the end. Caroline is constantly pushing her feelings aside and unselfishly making the right choices for others. We love her now. At this point, she’s almost as cool and unselfish as Elena.

After Damon killed Mason, who really did love Katherine, he called Katherine on Mason’s phone to taunt him. Oh how we laughed, until Katherine assured Damon that she had a Plan B (and C, and D, and more - "you know how the alphabet works") if things went wrong. Katherine then called up Elena to chastise her for not breaking up with Stefan, or at least for thinking Katherine was dumb enough to fall for their fake break up. Katherine alerted Elena to the fact that Aunt Jenna has been Katherine’s compelled spy for weeks. Then Aunt Jenna, who was standing in the kitchen, stabbed herself in the stomach in front of Alaric and Elena. We know we put her on our list of characters who deserve to die a horrible death, but we were actually sad when Aunt Jenna hurt herself. She’s been much better this season!

The fun and carnage were not over, because the show itself wasn't over. Elena broke up with Stefan for real (at least until they kill Katherine), and we felt so bad for Stefan (all the while admiring Paul Wesley’s ability to cry and still look manly). Damon stopped Elena on the way out and apologized for baiting Katherine. Awww. That Damon plays us hot and cold.

The episode ended with a shot of Katherine discussing her plan B. She needs a werewolf, so she compelled Matt to go at Tyler over and over and not stop until Tyler kills him. THAT ILL-MANNERED SLUT. One blogger literally screamed all of seven of George Carlin’s dirty words at the end of this episode, and then ended it with “AHHHHHHHHH.” Whoever ends Katherine will be our favorite character (even though Katherine is a little our favorite character for being evil, but awesome).

That's an A+


  1. Hatts' comment on the last TVD was lost when we hit "delete" instead of "Edit" accidently :( we commented back, so we hope she saw it. If she did not, then we would like her to know that we like that watched Dr. Horrible and we liked her video. This was the video

  2. *we liked that SHE watched Dr. Horrible.

  3. hey , don't worry, I saw your reply. Of course I watched Dr. Horrible! :) have you watched The Guild?

    I knew Jeremy was going to step up this year. but that's partly because once and awhile I watch the interviews that CW post with the writers of this show, where they promised to flesh out their supporting actors. I actually enjoy the show more knowing what different elements of the story means to the writers
    thanks for re posting the link to little foray into "vidding", its very considerate of you.

    ps. has anyone else considered how very much Damon is like BTVS's Spike? how similar are their stories going to be? this is NOT a criticism, just an observation. who would ever get tired of watching a smart sexy snarky vamp turned from evil to good by the love of a women? not me...

  4. We have NOT watched "The Guild," but it's in our instant netflix queue. We share instant netflix, haha. We totally didn't get Felicia Day in Dr Horrible. She couldn't sing and she wasn't that pretty. We guess only people who have seen her in other things, such as the Guild, would get it.

    We could compare Damon to MANY characters, and Spike is one of them. He is the standard bad, snarky boy who can only be sweet to his sweetie. Many women find this attractive. TVD just carries out this staple really well, and Ian pulls it off. It's one of the best examples of it that we have seen

  5. This show rocks my face off! I like that Damon is still evil, too, and Jeremy has DEFINITELY become a regulation hottie (his grandfather was Steve McQueen, for crying out loud. Hitting the age of hotness was only a matter of time for him). This show moves really well, too. It doesn't force us to sit through episode after episode of characters learning what we already know. This episode was a good example of that. We knew Katherine and Mason were in cahoots, but we didn't know much about it, and now, along with Damon and co., we only have more questions. Katherine (or Brazen Vampire Hussy, as she's known in my house, but I like Ill-Mannered Slut) appearances always make things exponentially more interesting, too.

    "Caroline is constantly pushing her feelings aside and unselfishly making the right choices for others. We love her now. At this point, she’s almost as cool and unselfish as Elena." YES! That scene with Caroline and her mom had me a little misty, too. I find it wonderfully satisfying when characters on TV shows make actually good, unselfish decisions. Tear. LOVE Vampire Caroline!

    Poor Aunt Jenna. That self-stabbing was fantastic, though. Did not see that coming, but I knew something was up when she mentioned hearing Damon and Elena through the wall. Weird conversation to have with someone, right?

    Paul Wesley is such a manly crier! Nice one. I was genuinely moved by their break up scene.

    Love your recap, as per usual! This show demands discussion every week after it's over!

  6. Thanks! Can't wait for next week. Thursdays are the greatest just for this show.

    "Brazen Vampire Hussy" haha. Very refined way to say "Ill-Mannered Slut," if you ask us.

    We feel bad for the people who don't watch this show.
