The Vampire Diaries Recap "We All Go a Little Mad Sometimes"

The Vampire Diaries "We All Go a Little Mad Sometimes": The Good, the Bad, and the Bloody

Just when you thought you were watching a mostly filler episode of The Vampire Diaries, they go and drop a game-changer on us. And not just any game-changer: we're talking about the plot development that some fans have been waiting on for literally years. But before we get into that, let's go back to the drawing board. Elena's feeling some nasty effects after her first kill, because it seems as if every major moment of her vampirism is destined to be a hell of a lot worse than what her friends went through. (Except, maybe, for Klaus.) It's not just guilt that she's grappling with, either: she's literally being tortured by Connor's ghost.

While the Salvatore boys are trying to figure out how to save Elena, things are getting tense and boozy over at the hybrid haven. Tyler and Caroline may have avoided letting Haley getting in the way of their relationship, but somehow Klaus has wormed his way back into the love triangle (much to my delight). There's a lot to chew on, so let's break it down when you


The Good

  • Now that Elena has killed Connor, she has to deal with some unforeseen consequences, which can only mean one thing: more seemingly out-of-nowhere vampire rules! Apparently, when a vampire hunter is killed, he still needs to fulfill his destiny by taking down his murderer

Whoever is doing the episode reviews, is doing a fantastic job at it..and I am so with them regarding Klaus/Caroline, the whole hybrid story line(I really couldn't care less if they break the sire bond,or not) and how lame Elena can be when it comes to Damon and Stefan..We all know she can't fight her feelings for either of them,but now that she's had her chance with Stefan, it's Damon's turn,next..

I LOLed at this: "So, exactly how long is one expected to respect the bro code if all parties are immortal? Asking for a friend."

I loved Stefan and Elena together up until a few episodes ago when their intimate scenes just seem uncomfortable.  So, the end of last night's episode was fantastic!  Good for Stefan for standing up for himself!  Seems like Elena couldn't really care less anyway.  VERY much looking forward to seeing more Elena/Damon.
