Oct 21st: The Vampire Diaries: Original Sin – Review

Linda | Categories: Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Season 5, The Vampire Diaries, TV Series, Zach Roerig | Comments Off on The Vampire Diaries: Original Sin – Review

Warning! Contains Spoilers!

Silas learns that hell hath no fury like a woman’s scorn.

This week’s The Vampire Diaries delivered a plot of mind bending twists, turns, and revelations.

In a nutshell: Damon learns he’s in the way of destiny. Stefan is free from the underwater safe. Elena and Katherine have the same dream about Stefan and enlist Damon to search for him. Nadia breaks her alliance with Silas. Silas’ ex-fiance, Qetsiyah kidnaps and uses Stefan to get revenge on Silas. Matt is possessed by the spirit of Gregor, the Traveler. Nadia captures Katherine to bargain with Silas. Stefan is rescued by Damon and Elena but has amnesia.

Stefan (Paul Wesley), freed from his underwater prison, is hungry and on the prowl. He staggers into Joe’s Bar and attacks the female bartender. But as he munches on her neck, he suddenly pulls away and tells her to run. (Not exactly ‘The Ripper’ anymore, is he?). And run, she does. Stefan runs outside sees the sun has come up. He falls to his knees, and looks at his hand crackling. He cries out in pain as he begins to burn. (His daylight ring taken by Silas?)

Elena (Nina Dobrev) seems to be dreaming this entire scene of Stefan. She wakes up and recalls it to Damon, saying it felt real, as though she was with him. She describes the name and appearance of the bar. Damon (Ian Somerhalder) tells her it was just a dream. But, Katherine (Dobrev) walks into their bedroom and announces she’s had the exact same dream about Stefan.

At the Salvatore house, Damon checks his phone and tells Elena that no bars called Joe’s exist on Route 29. Elena tells Damon that she shouldn’t have ignored all summer how she felt something was wrong with Stefan. She says she was right, Stefan was in the safe, and probably killed the guy who found him. Damon thinks following her dream to find Stefan is crazy, but he’ll go along with it. They decide to take a road trip to find the bar. However, Elena doesn’t want Katherine along, but Damon says he can’t leave her behind because of Silas. Katherine blames Elena for the entire mess with Silas because she shoved the cure down Katherine’s throat. Then she takes a dig at Elena for losing her one shot at being human and still caring as much as she does about Stefan. (Ouch! Turn that guilt knife a little deeper, Katherine!)

Meanwhile, somewhere in Mystic Falls, Silas (Paul Wesley) is on the phone with Nadia (Olga Fonda) the Traveler playing a game of ‘What If’. He says, what if, killing her companion, Gregor
was all an act, and what if, he’s still alive. She counters that Silas buried Gregor’s body himself. Silas says, what if, Matt’s ring brought Gregor back to life. He tells Nadia that to prove she’s on his side, she must find Matt (Zach Roerig), ask him where Katherine is, take his ring, and kill him.

Stefan wakes up on the floor of a cabin with a women staring at him. He warns her away, but she offers him a blood bag which he devours. She calls him “a vampire doppelganger with a conscience”. Stefan correctly guesses that she rescued him from outside of the bar. She tells him she also got the former owner of the cabin they’re in, to free him from the safe, and that Stefan killed him. He asks her who she is, but she asks how much he knows about Silas. Stefan tells her he’s a monster who stole his identity and will kill him when he finds him. He goes to leave, but the woman reminds Stefan he can’t leave without his daylight ring.

The woman is Silas’ ex-fiance, Qetsiyah (Janina Gavankar). She tells Stefan that 2,000 years ago, in ancient Greece, she was in love with Silas and thought he was her true love. But he was not hers. They were two of the most powerful of the gifted people called Travelers (ah-ha! So this is a traveler?). When they decided to marry, she created the immortality spell for them. However, Silas was in love with Qetsiyah’s hand maiden, Amara, and stood her up at the altar. She took her revenge by killing Amar. She then created the cure, threw Silas into a tomb with a supernatural limbo for his soul, and hoped he would take the cure and die. But he didn’t and escaped. Qetsiyah tells Stefan who she is, and that she came back from the afterlife, for him. (She was able to return after Bonnie had lifted the veil).

In back of the Mystic Grill, Matt confronts Nadia about what she did to him (when Gregor messed with his head), who is she, and what she wants. Nadia responds that she’s there to keep him safe from Silas. Matt asks her what she knows about Silas (while backing away slowly). She tells him Silas wants him dead and that Matt needs to trust her. She places her hands on his face and says some weird words. Matt’s eyes go black and Gregor takes over. And he’s not happy. He wants to know why she killed him. Nadia says because it was the only way to salvage their bargain and stop Silas from killing him. (Uh, yeah, makes sense.). She tells Gregor she loves him and promises to make Matt his permanent body. She also promises to tell him where his body is buried after he calls Elena and asks where Katherine is.

At the cabin, Stefan tells Qetsiyah he has a hard time believing anything she’s said.
Qetsiyah says she saw an opportunity to come back after the veil was lifted, as a mortal and do what her hunters had failed to do (are they Nadia and Gregor?), which was to kill Silas. Stefan wants some clarity on the doppelgangers. She explains that when Silas and Amara drank the immorality elixir, they violated the natural order. Nature balanced it out by creating mortal shadow selves, or doppelgangers, of them (which are Stefan, Elena, and Katherine). Qetsiyah tell Stefan she needs his help to take down Silas.

The road trip trio finds Joe’s Bar. They leave sleeping Katherine in the car while they go inside. Damon compels the bartender to tell him what happened with Stefan. She does, and says some woman driving a truck (the owner is a guy who lives down the road) drove off with Stefan. The bartender offers him a drink (don’t take it, Damon!) and it ends up being nasty for him. Elena asks her what she did to Damon and out walks Nadia. She demands they tell her where Katherine is or she will shoot Elena. At that moment, an angry Katherine walks into the bar. Nadia asks which of them is Katherine, and Katherine points to Elena. Nadia figures out she is lying, and Elena tackles her while telling Katherine to run. The two exchange body slams and Nadia escapes. Elena goes after them while Damon follows up on the lead about the owner of the truck.

While cooking up something that is definitely not a daylight ring, Qetsiyah tells Stefan she needs to destroy Silas’ mind control capability. After consuming blood for 2000 years, he’s perfected this ability. Qetsiyah says she wants Silas to spend eternity with Amara and her as punishment.

Meanwhile, Elena finds Katherine hiding out in a near-by forest. They have a little bonding time together. Katherine thanks her for not killing her after she shoved the cure down her throat. Elena said she wanted her to have a chance to experience humanity that was hiding somewhere under 500 years of bad behavior. (Some habits would be hard to change). Suddenly, Nadia snaps Elena’s neck and kidnaps Katherine at gunpoint.

Damon shows up at the cabin and finds Stefan tied to a chair and Qetsiyah no where in sight (do we smell an obvious trap?). Damon asks what happened to him as he tries to free him. Stefan says Qetsiyah has come back from the other side. Behind Damon, Qetsiyah appears. She tells him she is going to link Stefan to Silas by casting a spell which will neutralize Silas’ mind control ability. Then she will make him take the cure. Damon tells her Katherine ingested it and Qetsiyah says she knows. She had expected Katherine to be with him. She’s the one who planted the dreams in Katherine and Elena’s heads. She tells Damon she’ll have to do the spell without Katherine. Damon tries to leave with Stefan, but Qetsiyah tries to convince him they can defeat Silas. Stefan asks Qetsiyah to go ahead with the spell.

Nadia takes Katherine back to her truck, only to discover Silas has found them. She tell s him she’s not ready to hand Katherine over yet. He uses his mind control to have Nadia point her own gun at her heart. Just as he compels her to pull the trigger, Qetsiyah’s spell takes hold and Silas crumples to the ground, holding his head in pain.

At the cabin, Qetsiyah is still casting her spell. Stefan is crying out in pain. Damon asks what’s she doing to him. She answers that she’s frying Silas’ brain. (Eww there’s a visual).
Cut to Silas, still on the ground now with blood coming out of his eyes. Same happens to Stefan and he passes out in the chair. Damon says they’re done and goes to take Stefan. Qetsiyah says the spell worked and Stefan will wake up eventually.

Qetsiyah tells Damon that destiny has been trying to get the doppelgangers together forever; that she and Damon are the same — “the two obstacles standing in the way of two fates” (Stefan and Elena). Damon wants to leave with Stefan, but she wants to keep him with her now that he’s linked to Silas and Silas can no longer mess with their heads. She says as long as Stefan is in the way, Damon will never be with Elena. Damon tries to kill Qetsiyah but she body slams him into the fireplace and disappears. A dazed Damon hears Elena calling out for Stefan outside of the cabin. As he lays on the floor, Elena comes in and goes straight to Stefan. She doesn’t see Damon lying nearby (He has that ‘hey, how about me, your boyfriend? I need help too!’ look on his face!).

At a motel, Nadia is holding Katherine prisoner. Silas calls Nadia and asks where she is.
He threatens to kill her if she doesn’t hold up her end of the bargain. Silas tells her that Qetsiyah is headed for Mystic Falls and neither one of them will stop until they get the cure. Katherine grabs the phone and asks Silas what he wants with her. He says her blood is the cure.

Back at the Salvatore house, Stefan wakes up on the couch. Elena and Damon express to him their happiness he is back, but he looks up at them and says he doesn’t know who they are. (Uh-oh, a little side effect of the spell he wasn’t told about?).

The last scene is of Matt pushing himself across the tile floor of his (?) house, leaving a trail of muddy boot prints. He answers a call from Elena. He says he doesn’t remember talking to her earlier that day, but then lies that he does when she says he sounded different. He quickly hangs up, he checks his pocket and pulls out a bloodied knife. (Who has Gregor whacked?)

Loads of questions as this multi-layered plot continues next week.
Where has Matt been? Will Stefan remember who he is? Will Silas or Qetsiyah be the one get Katherine and the cure first? Will Nadia betray Gregor again? Is Nadia after the cure for Gregor or herself? Will Damon fight destiny to be with Elena? Will we ever get back to Whitmore College and solve the mystery of the roommate killer?

Oct 4th: The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Premiere – Review

Linda | Categories: Candice Accola, Ian Somerhalder, Kat Graham, Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Season 5, Spoilers, Steven R. McQueen, The Vampire Diaries, TV Series, Zach Roerig | Comments Off on The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Premiere – Review

Warning: Contains Spoilers!

Mystery, Murder, and Mayhem once again rule in Mystic Falls.

The Vampire Diaries’ Season 5 premiere delivered all three with a punch, leaving more questions than answers in its wake.

Here’s the short version: Elena and Caroline begin their college experience with a murder mystery. Bonnie is texting her friends that she’s fine. Back in Mystic Falls, Silas is wrecking mind-control havoc on the towns people. Katherine can’t deal with being human; Jeremy can’t adjust to being alive; Stefan is missing (and still underwater); and Damon tells Jeremy he’ll handle it all by himself without involving Elena. With me so far?

Now on to the delectable details. To start things off, the CW drama gave us a fun recap of what transpired over the summer. Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) couldn’t keep their hands off each other; Matt and Rebekah (Claire Holt) traveled around Europe and engaged in a threesome with a mysterious Nadia (Olga Fonda) in Prague, and Caroline was busy color-coordinating her and Elena’s college dorm room.

Back to the present. Elena and Caroline (Candice Accola) head off to college, leaving Elena’s brother Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) under the care of Damon. Maybe for some bonding time? Jeremy reluctantly goes back to school with a bizarre cover story of drug use, arson and teenage rebellion to explain why he faked his own death. The first day there, he is expelled after he body slams three bullies into the lockers. Go Jeremy! However, Damon isn’t too happy about this, and compels the principal to give Jeremy a three day suspension instead. Oh Damon, your soft side is showing.

Meanwhile, back at Whitmore College, Elena and Caroline’s celebration is cut short when a third roommate shows up, and it’s of course, not Bonnie (Kat Graham). The mysterious girl is Megan (Hayley Kiyoko). Caroline’s hunter radar goes up immediately. She tries to convince Elena that Megan is a Hunter, who knows they are vampires and is out to get them. But Elena talks Caroline into going to a campus house party to try to be “normal”. Once there, they can’t enter the house without being invited in. They bump into Jesse (Kendrick Sampson) who invited them to the party, and Megan, outside. They give the excuse they’re waiting for someone. Elena leaves Megan a voice mail telling her they’re not staying at the party. Megan calls soon after, screaming for help.

What follows is a scene right out of a low budget horror film. The camera pans up to the top of the party house/dorm they’re standing outside of, as though tracing Megan’s screams. Then it pans back to Elena asking Megan what is going on. Then…wait for it…a body lands with a loud thump behind Elena and Caroline! Wow, didn’t see that coming. Of course, it’s Megan and she’d been bitten by a vampire (could it be Jesse?)

They steal her cell phone because of the voice mail Elena left and they lie to the campus police that they don’t have it. Why would they do that? The police already said it was a suicide because they found Megan’s note. When is it a crime to fail to rescue your roommate? Back at their dorm room, they discover Megan’s tablet missing along with the alleged suicide note. Smells like police work, not a campus cover-up as Elena and Caroline think.

Writing Megan out was a wasted opportunity. A more compelling (no pun intended) story arch might have been Haley actually being a Hunter, pursuing her mysterious connection to Elena (Megan’s cell had a picture of Elena’s father and Megan together). Maybe Caroline could have gone through Megan’s cell to find the picture (she snooped through everything else of hers!) in the first place. The whole someone is after Elena story just feels like amateur sleuth hour.

Jesse may end up as Caroline’s new boyfriend. He certainly has shown interest in her and Tyler (Michael Trevino) left Caroline voice mail indicating he’s not coming back any time soon. This strongly suggests that their relationship isn’t going to survive.

Matt reunites briefly with Rebekah while serving up beer at the town square. She fails to convince him to quit his job and go with her (to New Orleans?). Soon after he watches her leave, he sees Nadia. Matt follows her and she gives back his Gilbert ring that she took when they were in their threesome. But someone is with her. Matt is grabbed by from behind and some sort of spell is said. His eyes turn black, then normal and he drops like a sack of potatoes. So who is Nadia and her companion? And what did they do to poor Matt?

Back at the House of Salvatore, Katherine shows up looking for a place to crash and protection from her enemies trying to kill her. Poor Katherine. Humanity does not become her. Her hair looks like birds have nested in it, her smeared make-up gives her a sad clown face, her nails are chipped, and she complains of blisters from running in high heels. Damon crinkles his nose and offers to turn her back, which she refuses. She’s afraid she’ll end up dead if she turns, because no one knows the effects of The Cure. The sarcasm drips from Damon’s mouth as he replies, “And that would be tragic.” Ouch!

We finally check in on poor Stefan trapped in that underwater safe! Makes you feel like holding your breath during that scene. Stefan hallucinates that he’s having a long conversation with Damon, who tries to convince him to give up his humanity. Stefan doesn’t see the point in doing that. Later on, he hallucinates about Elena telling him to stay with her and not to go, because humanity is what makes him who he is. Someone please hurry up and rescue him!

Silas makes his appearance at the Salvatore house and attempts to choke Kathryn. Jeremy having figured out that Stefan is really Silas earlier at the grill, arrives with Damon at the house. Jeremy takes Kathryn on a drive while Damon confronts Silas about Stefan’s whereabouts. Silas won’t reveal where Stefan is, until Katherine is brought back. Damon makes the call to Jeremy, but Katherine attacks him and they crash in a dramatic car hits light pole and it’s lights out, fashion. Kathryn limps away into the night, and Damon arrives to find Jeremy sprawled out unconscious on the roadway. For a moment, it appears he’s dead again, but Damon succeeds in waking him up.

The episode ends at the Mystic Falls End of Summer Party, where Mayor Rudy Hopkins (Rick Worthy), Bonnie’s father, has his speech interrupted by Silas who uses his mind-control on the crowd and slits the Mayor’s throat. Bonnie sees this and is devastated. Silas then instructs the zombie like towns people to find Kathryn. Did he kill Bonnie’s father as revenge? Can Bonnie retaliate? Why is Silas determined to kill Katherine? Is it her blood he wants and if so, for what?

Hopefully, the questions this premiere raises will be answered in the upcoming episodes.
