The Vampire Diaries - By the Light of the Moon review

Stefan got out of the tomb, and Katherine didn’t even get to kiss him. She barely got to taunt him. And, as much as we loathe getting into body talk, does anyone else think that Katherine’s body would have looked less awkward with five-to-ten more pounds on it? She’s so long that her bones can make her look too harsh and angular when they stick out from being a stick. If this is Nina Dobrev's natural weight, then fine. But if (as we suspect) she has to kill herself to have it, she shouldn't work so hard. She'd look better with some LBs. Not worth it. We saw another reviewer compliment her "curves." Sorry, but hip bones are not curves. Hip bones are hips, and most women have them.

During Tyler’s transformation weren’t sure if we wanted Caroline to leave or for her to stay as long as possible. The transformation scene was about as hard-core and satisfying (no, not that way, even though Tyler has a great body) as one could expect from this show. The end of the ordeal, where Tyler cried and Caroline held him, hammered in the fact that these two are going to get closer after this episode. We know the rift is going to be when he finds out that Caroline has been lying to him about being the only vampire in town and about the death of his uncle. Jules is going to tell him. There, show predicted.

Speaking of Jules, we both hate her. But if her bite kills off the annoying English Rose, we will start liking Jules more. We like seeing Damon have to wrestle with his feelings, and Rose dying would bring more of those to the forefront. As far as the two newest love triangles go, we are still shipping Caroline and Matt (mostly). And Jeremy is much hotter (and more well-intentioned) than Luka. And also hotter.

We will have until January to wonder what Elijah is up to, how he can slither through the loopholes of his verbal contract just enough to wreak havoc without breaking his word, and get really excited for the second half of this raucous season.

Episode grade: A-


  1. Is Rose English? I thought she was Aussie. Either way, she's irritating.

    That transformation was freaking cool! How gross was it when his skeletal system started rebelling against his body?! Like.

    Who would have thought at this time last year that Caroline and Tyler would be the most interesting characters on the show? Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec must be some kind of TV evil genii.

  2. We looked Rose up, because we thought her accent was bad and wanted to know if we were right that it was a fake. Turns out, she is English, but she spent a lot of her childhood in another country, so that is what makes the accent a little off/a little Australian/a little American.

    Caroline is Ern's favorite character. Damon is probably still Leeard's. She can never decide for sure.

  3. Wait, we remembered that backwards. We're all wrong, haha

    Lauren Cohan was born in 1982, in Philadelphia and lived in Cherry Hill Township, New Jersey during her childhood before moving to the United Kingdom. Lauren graduated from the University of Winchester / King Alfred's College where she studied Drama and English Literature

  4. Ah, she's a hybrid!

    I'm with Ern on Caroline this season. She's awesome, and easily the most improved character of the show. Honorable mention for most improved goes to Tyler for making lycanthropy seem so torturous.

  5. Lauren Cohan has THE worst British accent.
    She can't even pull of one word without it turning into an american twang.
    Its gotten to the point where I hope its on purpose, because her character has been alive for so long, maybe she has 'picked up' on both accents? I doubt it though.

  6. We love when other people notice this, because it drives us up the wall. We aren't British (we're American), but both of us have a good ear for this sort of thing. We're pretty sure we could do a better British accent than this broad just from watching Harry Potter.
