The Vampire Diaries- The Five

Okay, so we're not nuts about how repetitive this show is getting. We feel like we've seen these plots before. We need gamechangers. Maybe for a few characters to leave Mystic Falls again. Maybe a major death or pairings shakeup. Maybe a better new villain. Hopefully this professor can serve that purpose... We don't need him teaching Bonnie to do more magic though. Bonnie can already do pretty much everything. Plus, all the magic gives the show an easy out. The show needs to nix the witches so people have to live with the consequences of death and other things.

We kind of figured that somehow Elena would get cured. Now it's a certainly. Oh, how dull. If the show wants to win back our respect, it will make Damon or someone surprising back into a human and keep Elena as a vampire. Of course the season is going to be spent looking for a magical object, just like past seasons have spent time looking for weapons. The show needs to stop making Rebekah pathetic. The show needs to stop it with the Super Compassionate Elena Commentary On Why She's Jesus. She realized that she didn't want to be like Damon in the span of one episode, and that's a problem. She just wants to cry on Stefan's shoulder.

We thought Elena turning into a vampire might make her bad ass, but we guess you can't be a sweet, likable heroine and still take care of yourself/rip off heads, right? The show needs to bring back the emotions. We didn't feel anything this week. We didn't like judge-y Bonnie ruining Elena's fun at the party, but we did like Elena choosing to feed on Roofie Boy. Vampire vigilante? Yes, please. That would be a great place to take the Elena character. We bet it was just for this week though, and she'll just keep mooning over the brothers.

If we were Bonnie, we would've been more concerned that no vampire ever seems able to wipe their mouths after a feeding on this show. You have sleeves, guys. So, Caroline is a genius and "too good" at self-control. We're glad that someone on the show finally mentioned that she should teach Elena. But because wisdom wouldn't interesting to watch, Elena shoots Stefan's idea down. Ugh. Klaus was annoying this week, and we usually like him. At least he'll be in Italy looking for a sword for a while, right? We miss Katherine. And Elijah. We know we saw him in a flashback, but it was all too brief and we want to see him in the present. And where was Caroline this week?

This is one of our favorite shows, and it was unbelievably good for 2.5 years. You're better than this, TVD!!!!
Episode grade: C+


  1. Except the 2nd one, all of the episodes this season has been kinda lame. I mean compared to past TVD. This show was not afraid of death. Every vampire is allowed one slip up. Even Caroline killed a person. Let Elena kill somebody. Let her suffer from that guilt, but not about choosing Stefan over Damon or the other way. And also, I'm the kind of person who in real life would like to end up with a guy like Stefan, minus the vampire drama, but can I just say the actress Nina Dobrev has this amazing chemistry with Ian that you just can't overlook. Compared to that, Stefan is a bit dull.

    I agree that the show needs to shake things up. Nothing on this show scares me anymore. Klaus was supposed to be scary, his mother was supposed to be scary, evil Alaric was supposed to be scary. But they weren't. This new hunter is not scary yet, except only when he ripped the hybrid's head off! I think Matt is the only one with balls in that town. And this show has been nothing but mean to him.

    1. We kind of liked last week, but the pilot and this one sucked. We agree that Ian and Nina have steamier chemistry too.

      The trouble with this show is that it's already pulled out the ULTIMATE vampires (the originals), and they ended up being mostly whiners. The dad was scary, but they killed him too soon. How can they top originals? Now they have the ULTIMATE vampire hunters, so they are using them up. We need more powerful vampires or something. Or Satan. It's just time to whip out Satan and be done with it, lol.

    2. Or maybe the witches from the other side, who can supposedly make or break a vampire.

  2. I agree, not the best episode. Having said that, i liked it ok. Yeah, they def need to do something drastic to put some life back in the show. Didn't I read that Nina & Ian are dating in real life???
