Okay first of all, WTF with all the retcon. I'm so not liking this "Oh we used to be great friends but I compelled you to forget.....but wait, you can remember again! Oh and guess what! You were in love with my sister!" blah. I'm now hoping Klaus takes Stefan and goes far far away so I don't have to spend 85% of my hour watching them. Is it just me or is Klaus just not all that scary. I'm not sure if it's the actor or the character as written but he's just not pulling off the super villain that scares even crazy ass Katherine. And of course the necklace Elena has was Rebecca's. pfft. I actually did like Rebecca though. She can stay. But first GO GET ELIJAH! I'm losing patience with this. More bad: No Alaric. (I refuse to write Ric. Hate that shortened name) Why wasn't he with Damon and Elena this time? I mean, if they aren't going to actually give him a storyline then at least let him have his screentime with Damon that I love. Now on to the good stuff. Elena in the closet with Stefan's diary when he looks in there at her. They kinda broke my heart a bit with the look she gave him. However, I am not looking forward to how long this separation drags on this season. I really don't care who she ends up with but I really think the writers have Elena/Stefan in their minds as end game. So all the bs in between with Damon is just to toy with us. I know the triangle is the heart of TVD story, I could just do without it. That being said, I do look forward to the showdown between Damon and Stefan when Stefan does finally come back and she's with with Damon. Doh! So glad it was Tyler and Liz to go get Caroline. YAY! Tyler came through for her this time. These two are my favorite pairing. I don't even care if it's romantic or friendship. They just have awesome chemistry together. And her dad is a dick. I know he thinks he's trying to fix her but he's still a dick. HRG in full force! More good: No Matt. No judgy witch. No ghosts.
