The Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 9 recap Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes.   This is the kind of fun I want to see on this show!  Everyone’s in one place, people are operating at cross-purposes, there are layers and layers.   My only real complaint is that Rebekah was taken out of the action so early, since we know she’s far more entertaining to listen to than Klaus is. Full Story

The Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 8 recap Okay, so while this episode was literally just exposition (and a welcome break from C plots involving Matt being confused and Jeremy being not that bright),  it was pretty entertaining,  mostly because, since it was the Rebekah show,  I have to acknowledge that this actress really is pretty good. Full Story

A cluster. Of Women

Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 7 recapOh, Vampire Diaries.   Did you all watch this thing? Did you? Okay, so, when the portal is opened and all our old vampire ghost friends return, we have a thorough smorgasboard comprising everyone from Grandma Whitley (I know, but don’t you still think of her that way too?) to Anna’s mother. Full Story

Back to school…seriously?

Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 6 recapSo this episode had a lot going on and obviously some fun, but I had a big stick in my craw about it early on, and I just have to get it out of the way.  Because what I realize is it actually needs some help from you. This show never skimps on emotional realism. Full Story

Who’s the most alone?

Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 5 recapThank you as always, always, for the emails you send loving, hating, sharing your opinions.   One that comes up a lot is a request for a more comprehensive analysis –  and this seemed like a good place to start, even though my ‘thesis’ was laid out pretty plainly in dialogue for me. Full Story

Would the real Elena please stand up?

Vampire Diaries recap Season 3 Episode 4And so the saga continues.   If you’d asked me an hour ago I’d have said I’m feeling exhausted from the road-trip element of the show – trying to keep straight who was met in what time, and for some reason, why this whole Stefan-and-Klaus run is making me tired. Full Story

The Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 3 Recap Start with Damon who, as in every day during every year ever, is pouring booze in the sunshine.   I love his consistency.   And when his phone rings, no matter how many times I’ve seen it, I love when the phone rings, and we wonder why Elena’s so flirty before realizing, with a smile – oh…. Full Story

The Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 2 recap Previously on the Vampire Diaries, I laughed hysterically at all of your emails about the season premiere. Thank you for reminding me that it was Stefan’s room Damon trashed, I never found out what made Caroline’s purse burn her, and finally, THANK YOU to the person who told me on twitter that SIMON CAMDEN is playing the tortured werewolf! Who knew? Damon’s ripping down Stefan articles, and he criticizes Elena for ‘not staying away’ from him. Full Story

Written by Duana Season 3 Episode 1 reca Oh lord we are BACK! I had to re-read the season finale from last year and, honestly, even though I wrote it, I’m so dizzy. Can’t believe all that stuff happened in one episode . Let’s break back in… Previously, Katherine says Elena enjoys having both Stefan and Damon worship at her altar, Klaus was able to break the curse to reveal his vampire side (R. Full Story

I know. I’m sorry. I deserved your yelling. It’s just...the articles that require a recounting of personal experience, I need to be super focused for those. And the last few days I’ve been working in studio and there’s so much sh-t happening here, I haven’t been able to escape it. Full Story

Written by Duana The finale. I never thought I’d get so emotionally involved in a show I didn’t watch until two months ago… Previously, if you didn’t know, why are you here? Elena/Katherine doppelgangers, Elijah gives information to kill Klaus and he’ll finish the job, but then of course he doesn’t because he likes his family, Damon shoved some vampire blood into Elena, and Damon got bit by Tyler Lockwood. Full Story
