The Vampire Diaries- Memorial

By [CC-BY-SA-2.0 (], via Wikimedia Commons
Now THAT'S more like it! People have been moaning that Elena becoming a vampire is "just like Twilight." Whatever. Not really. Stefan teaching Elena in the woods reminded us of Twilight kind of, but then they started getting it on. Then Elena vomited. We last saw the actress playing April Young in the Nine Lives of Chloe King. Her nose looks fake (we could be wrong though). For the record, we prefer big noses or noses with character to the sawed-off Michael Jackson models. And for the record, Kim Kardashian was prettier before she had all her work done too. Now she just looks plastic. It's icky.

That blood sharing between Elena and Damon was hot. That's the first time that's ever been hot to us. This show does that well. When Elena sucked on Matt's neck, that was hot too. We liked Elena vomiting up blood. Gnarly. She's not doing as well as Caroline. Is that because Caroline had many blood bags and a whole human to start off? Or is there something weird about Elena being a doppelganger? Stefan looks like he's related to a Romney. (Did you know Mitt is Romney's middle name? HIS FIRST NAME IS WILLARD. Ern did not know that. God, that's even worse than "Mitt.")

This episode was Original free! Good, we needed a break from them. The show made a great move bringing in new baddies. Last episode, we had Pastor Young. Now we have Jordan Connor, a capable vampire slayer. Sure, he hasn't slayed any vamps yet, but it's only a matter of time. He seems good at it. The best thing about this episode was sassy Damon. He was right where we like him. Rebellious without being homicidal, pragmatic, and hilarious. The joke where he crossed himself and his refusal to shake Jordan's hand were great. This is exactly how we like Damon. If he always acted like this, we'd both ship Delena.

We're glad Matt got something to do in this episode, especially since it might help him with his guilt problem. We wouldn't mind seeing Elena go back to him for a couple of weeks, since she's all confused. It would make sense since she'd be trying to cling to a bit of her humanity. When Caroline helped Elena heal April, we got chills. We were already proud of who Caroline has become, but that just hammered it home even more. The memorial scene was intense and so much fun. That's the kind of action we like. It's also good to bring in a new, female human character.

We teared up at the end, especially when we saw Alaric. Then the show ruined it by having Alaric talk. Dumb. Does that mean he wasn't jut a figment of Damon's imagination? We liked that Damon is bummed that Elena is going to be a killer just like the rest of all vampires. This conflict on how to handle Elena's transition is really working. This show needs to cool it with the cheesy endings though. That's the last time we want to hear about Bonnie's Gram grief. It was forever ago. Jeremy, nice job mentioning Anna and Vicki before you mention Jenna.

Overall, a win for the show and a sign that it hasn't lost its bloody goodness.
Episode grade: A-


  1. So I figured I should just comment on here, lol. I loved the episode more than the premiere too :) I thought I'll miss Klaus too much but surprisingly didn't. I didn't like Damon in the last episode but loved him in this one. And Matt was awesome too. Caroline is the best and should be Elena's official vampire trainer. Btw Elena is the worst vampire ever. Not surprised though. I didn't hate the Delena scenes! Connor seems like a promising villain. Also what's up with those ghost tattoos?
    I laughed at the Forwood scene in the beginning. Even the show acknowledged that their relationship is pretty much sex all the time. I was like "Goodbye Forwood it's time for Klaroline!" lol.
    I cried at the end too. (If Ern cried, I obviously did haha) Next week looks good too! :)

  2. We never thought of Caroline taking over the training...Good call. Elena should fire both of the boys.

    It's time for Elena to get bad ass. She has physical strength now. She's brave. There's no reason she shouldn't turn into a vampire version of Buffy.

    Ghost tattoos are cool new thing. It's about time this show brought up something we haven't seen before.

    I (Ern) am getting softer lately. It must be that I'm not spending every day in law school with other soulless people...

  3. Haha or maybe it's happened to me too lol

  4. Good episode. I too agree that it was better than the premiere. I think they are handling Elena's transition well. Do you think she will go bad & become a ripper? In one way I think that'd be a bit boring (been there, done that), but in another way I think it'd be interesting to see her like that. I'm interested to see where they go with this new vampire hunter...

    1. There's almost no way she'd become a full-blown ripper, but she might kill one person this season
