Forgive me, this has all been done off my iPad today
Ripper!Stefan has always been my favourite Stefan, when he lets the self-righteousness fall away and becomes the Ripper of Monteray. He can’t stay on that pedestal forever.
Damon and Elena waking up together made me all very very happy inside and I almost squeed on the train. I mean, come on, really? Elena is like sleeping next to a tornado? They were up all night? I choose to believe they were doing dirty things all night.
Katherine is one of my favourite characters. Human Katherine is so amazingly screwed up and not dealing with her humanity well at all. Last weeks ep when she was sick was hilarious.
Damon’s comment “if Silas wants her, I want her more”. Katherine has become a pawn in this bigger ‘game’ and even as a human she hasn’t been able to stop running from the bigger evil.
WHY WONT EVERYONE LEAVE POOR MATT ALONE? Has he invested in any insurance? Can we get confirmation on that? Okay so I’m actually a bit conflicted about this because Matt needs to live a long and healthy human life, but I’m just excited he actually has a story line. And Zach. He gets this opportunity to really so something and I’m just excited for that and to see what he does with it.
Qetsiyah, Tessa, whatever we’re calling her - just a tad more than a little bit crazy. Two thousand years and she’s still after revenge. That’s. Dedication. Dedication that really should involve a lot of therapy and a secure institution.
Um. Did Amara comes as a surprise to *anyone*? They’re really playing out the doppelgänger storyline aren’t they? This has been five seasons going now.
"She is not worth the hair on your head. Kiss me." Every Delena scene made me melt. Just melt.
I actually laughed at the amnesia twist.
Can I refuse the cure storyline? I thought we were done with it. Please let us be done with it.
*sigh* okay so I actually liked this episode, no matter how much I’m over Silas and the cure. Damn characters keeping me sucked in. Though that’s the way it always is.
I’m on the train, about halfway to New Orleans, so tell me guys what you all thought about the episode and I’ll keep my eyes out for any night walkers when walking through the French Quarter tonight ;-)
tatia never found a doppelganger pair, she was torn between klaus and elijah. katherine was first torn between klaus and elijah and her doppelganger pair was stefan. stefan met katherine first and only got interested in elena because she looked exactly like katherine.
how is that destined love?
this is simply a vicious circle that started with two people betraying someone. a vicious circle is supposed to be broken. there’s nothing epic about it.
The thing about The Vampire Diaries is that I have a legitimate crush on every single character.
You know what I loved about the Delena scenes in this episode?
“Everything’s heightened. Taste. Smell. Sight. Touch.”
I know that this quote referred to that Stelena scene and only that one in particular but I can’t help but notice that “heightened touch” actually fits Delena perfectly in this episode. It’s like it doesn’t just fit, it just describes all of it.
There’s a great gifset flying around that shows all the touches Delena shared in this episode. Just have a look.
I’d like you to especially remember the scene where Damon brought Elena a bloodbag and the way he stroked her arm, wiped the blood of her lips, touched her cheek and her hair. These are very tender touches that have quite the effect on Elena.
Also, this reminds me of a gifset I made in spring. Have a look.
In “Miss Mystic Falls” Damon and Elena experienced the magic of the so-called “near touch”. And then in “Heart of Darkness” Damon stroked Elena’s hand and just this touch overwhelmed Elena so much that she couldn’t breathe calmly.
So, I can’t help but think that the “heightened touch” was mentioned for Delena. And there’s definitely more to come. There’s still 4.04 ahead of us with some awesome “touching” activities and then at some point Damon and Elena will have sex, so I’m expecting some fireworks ;)
Oh and Damon thinks he’s comforting Elena while Elena only gets more and more aroused. That’s one of the little things that make me happy.
I found the translations for those posters. Interesting stuff:
Caroline: “Amor est immolare” means “Love is sacrifice.”
Klaus: “Sanguis potestas est,” means “Blood is power.”
Rebekah: “Osculum proditione mortiferum est.” means “Betrayal’s kiss is deadly.”
Bonnie: “Libera nos a mano,” means “Deliver us from evil.”
Elijah: “Sanguis est in aeternum” means “Blood is forever.”
Matt: “Vulnera sapientia.” (a rough translation) means “Wounding wisdom,”
