The Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 19 recapPreviously on VD, Elena loved them both, but Stefan knew Elena had feelings for Damon.  Oh and then there was that Klaus business.  They had stakes to kill him, except for one belonging to murdery-possibilities Ric, which is MISSING. Elena brings Alaric some supplies in a Red Riding Hood sweater and gets all faux-huffy that Damon slipped “Dr. Full Story

The Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 18The Murder of One doesn't, of course, include the one-in-five boom we were promised.  Why would it?  It's not like they're linked.  And, of course, we have four episodes still to go.   I'm joking, mostly. Finally, after so much marching in place, this episode brought together many of the finest parts of what they've been trying to set up all season. Full Story

The Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 17 recapOkay, it's Mystic Falls Friday and all, but before we get to it, a little housekeeping.  Thanks for your responses to yesterday's article.  Click here if you missed my post on What Do Fans Deserve. Full Story

What Do Fans Deserve?

It's time to discuss that monthly thesis, "maybe Twitter is ruining society". Yesterday I saw @molls - who, if you didn't know, was an internet presence and writer with a big following long before she was the cofounder of HelloGiggles or a writer for 2 Broke Girls - tweet that “every time I go on the Internet I get my feelings hurt”, and that she's going to get hypnotized not to feel things. Full Story

Welcome Back. Whodunit?

The Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 16  It should be categorically impossible to miss fictional people as much as I do, but I’ve decided to neglect the part of me that feels like maybe this level of empathy for fictional people and the ways their families mess them up is a little overstated.     Okay, so previously, Stefan loved …you know, that girl; Rebecca wants to kill a white oak tree (standby on clarity for that); Ric was dating a “dirty Doctor” and got shot for his troubles when he found her bags,  and Elena barely made the preview. Full Story

Elena is…one of those

Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 15 recapThis episode was called “All My Children”.  It’s amusing to me primarily not just because Esther had five and planned to off them all, but in the way that the writers get to play with their character toys, pulling some in, putting others away.  Most got a decent workout this week, but I still feel kind of unsatisfied……and I probably should have known because we start with Elena awake in bed. Full Story

Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 14 recap Whoo.  Whew.  Is everyone OK? Let’s calm and ease in by talking about these Entertainment Weekly covers.  I mean, damn.  I obviously prefer the Elena/Damon one (and discussion on the symbolism of the white sheet can go on for hours), because obviously, but there was a comment on the EW site that the relative nudity of that one really made her sure that Ian and Nina are really a thing. Full Story

Before we get to the recap proper, thank you all for your emails, especially last week when we were in withdrawal.  Brooke writes a lot but wanted me to know about Matthew Davis’ (Alaric) Twitter this week.  Did you guys see this? Apparently the man himself has been asked why Alaric and Elena have such, um…chemistry. Full Story

We kissed, now it’s weird.

Okay,  I was walking my dog this week when it suddenly occurred to me that I feel, somehow, like the fourth of the four coffins is Katherine. I get tired of thinking about who-all the Klaus relatives are, but I can wish, right?  So this week was my favourite kind of Vampire Diaries. Lots of emotions and feeling, fewer hearts actually hitting the floor. Full Story

Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 11 recap I’m actually going to pretend this was the new season’s return.  It was so great and had this authentic Vampire Diaries mix of real danger, authentic teenage longing, and actual animalistic terror.  Stuff felt real, you know? Elena sometimes doesn’t act like a normal person, giving over the interesting parts of being a girl stuck in this town, sort of perpetually a victim and with nothing to do about it. Full Story

The Return

Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 10 recap Oh man, it’s been so long since a Vampire Diaries I don’t know whether I remember how to do this!   Previously, Klaus messed up everyone’s lives, basically Stefan’s by way of  enslaving him, until Damon frees him that is, and then Damon, looking a hundred, bitches to Elena that he could have gotten Stefan free…but he sort of is free, so stay tuned on that. Full Story
