TVD Episode Discussion - 6x13: The Day I Tried To Live - Airs February 5th

6x13 - The Day I Tried To Live - February 5th

PROMO | EXTENDED PROMO | STILLS | WEBCLIP I | WEBCLIP II


HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BONNIE — Determined to celebrate Bonnie’s (Kat Graham) birthday, Elena (Nina Dobrev) convinces Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) that it’s what Bonnie would have wanted. After piecing the broken ascendant back together, Elena, Jeremy and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) attempt to send Bonnie a message, but the situation turns dire when they make an unsettling discovery. Meanwhile, after uncovering Stefan’s (Paul Wesley) secret about his great-niece Sarah Salvatore (guest star Tristan Mays), Enzo (Michael Malarkey) enlists a reluctant Matt (Zach Roerig) to help interfere with her life. Elsewhere, Stefan keeps a close eye on Caroline (Candice Accola) as she unconventionally attempts to cope with everything going on around her. Lastly, realizing it might be time to move on with his life, Jeremy contemplates leaving Mystic Falls for good.
Directed by Pascal Verschooris
Written by Chad Fiveash & James Stoteraux

It took them a long time for Bonnie to mention Jeremy. As much as I hate what they did to Beremy I'm happy they were in one scene together. I think I need to rewatch S5 bc this one is just too painful.
And why is Liv always on the way of Bonnie's rescue? lol

Enzo wants to seduce Sarah and make her a vampire?

Boring episode I only save Jeremy, Delena and Steroline The rest was pretty much pointless or depressing


Enzo&Matt, still finding their SL very pointless, Enzo’s actions are senseless, his hatred towards Stefan childish, I really don’t get his character this year


Liv&Tyler, I think he’s the last people who can preach at the whole “revenge” thing, considering in the past he did the same with Caroline I approve Liv though, she has all the rights to want revenge, Luke was her family, I want her to avenge him!!


Bonnie, Don’t care about her nor her scenes touched me Just bring her back so we can put an end to all this SL!


Kai, bye-bye cool villain, welcome soon-to-be redeemed character! If his role will be only making jokes, psycho speeches about crying and helping the gang… no thanks: been there, done that, I’d rather pass


Jeremy, I don’t want him to leave I enjoyed his character very much int his episode, the strength and love he has for Bonnie and to save her it’s touching, he risked so much for her, loved when he motivated her to be strong!


Steroline, can they marry already?!? Loved their scenes, how Stefan is there for her, making her venting everything out and making her smile I was so sure they were going to kiss, damn them, they’re making me crazy!!


Delena, just amazing The flirty scene was really cute and sexy, pity Kai had to cockblock it! Love that they showed their issues finally, I was waiting for this and I’m glad they talked about it, explained their POVs and decided to move on, she’s feeling her love for him again, it’s magical DEx was hot and sweet, the cuddling scene even more

You know LabuanPearl88 it's so strange - we watched the same episode and yet our reviews are so different

I'll just copy my short review from the Paul board
Quote:
I like Kai - his dislike for DE is almost as good as Silas's was

Kat killed it in this episode
Did anyone else notice that when she drove off in the last scene - the leaves was falling from the trees It's still may 10th

I am extremely glad I have my fast forward button - now I fast forward through all DE and Elena scenes - she has become so unlikable!

Stefan & Caroline - yes they are cute - but let them stay friends. Their interaction is for now just like something Stefan and Lexi would have done. Let's keep it this way!

Other than that - kinda boring episode again.

#BlameEnzo!
For me Kai is not only amusing but the fact that he constantly calls out DE is just great

LabuanPearl88 we agree on not wanting Jeremy to leave - it's just sad

Steroline - I find it so ridiculous that the writers can not write a male/female friendship without going the romantic way. Stefan needs a best friend - Damon killed his last best friend. Caroline needs a best friend because her last best friends - Elena - has become unbearable after she hooked up with Damon. Stefan/Caroline should be each others best friends not lovers

DE - I can't say anything civil about them - the writers should just end it now!

The bad guys always seem to hate on DE.. but I think the writers do that on purpose. I think they like having the bad guys say bad things, so that they can have some huge epic DE reveal at the end. I mean how many times have we heard the some type of speech from Elena to Damon. To keep reiterating that speaks volumes.. it's like they are still trying to convince the audience that Elena's love for Damon is real and when you need to convince an audience that much.. then I say there is something very wrong with how you are writing them

It still doesn't change my dislike for Kai though, and I wish he would go away. I just don't find him amusing at all.

The optimistic part of me think it's something else the writers are doing - but I guess we should discuss that in an episode thread

I really loved loved loved the episode in general and I was even a little emotional

Bonnie. Poor soul! Kat's acting was brilliant. I really felt Bonnies desperation and loneliness. Like the Bonnie/Damon dynamic.
Jeremy. I like the idea of him moving on and going to art school. His scenes with Bonnie were emotional to watch. Liked the camera shots and angle with the car scene.
Damon&Elena. Loved their scenes. They make more sense to me now than in earlier seasons somehow. Human Elena (and Stefan) vs. Vampire Elena (and Damon) was interesting and I'm glad the writers addressed it. I'm ready for Delena now! Can't believe I started to ship them. Bring it on.
Kai. Loved the acting of Chris and the whole socialpath+sensitive is funny and interesting to watch. This must be a another punishment
Liv/Tyler I'm sorry but I still don't like Liv. And I don't see the chemistry between them. I'm glad Tyler doesn't want too see her again I did feel sorry for Caroline when Tyler said to Liv that he would do anything for her, but didn't want her to choose death over him. Good acting by Michael though!
Matt/Enzo/Sarah Didn't care this episode. I have no idea if this storyline will pay off or if they're episode fillers.

But most of all:
Stefan/Caroline. They were so beautiful this episode Stefan smiling and fooling around, I love that! They make each other smile even in the worst circumstances. And loved how Stefan was trying to trigger the anger and sadness in Caroline instead of her running away from it or herself not allowing to feel this way.
Cuteness in all their scenes. Can't handle it, waited for this since the pilot

Well, world is beautiful bc it's various Loving different characters make us enjoy the show differently or focusing on different scenes to like, pretty much normal to me

Oh I don't mind that, got used after 2 seasons of Klaus, I even find it enjoyable bc I know how it works out in the end so I'm cool with it, only to our advantage And the choice of Kai saying those things is pretty much indicative to me too

I found Kai amusing for his snarky quotes the first episodes, now I'm starting to find it only annoying and repetitve Maybe I'm just annoyed by this whole redemption!SL I don't like the idea of or maybe I had too many expectations of him as villain... but taken away his snarky jokes, what remains of him? I'll wait and see

Jer has been treated so baldy, wish we got more for him And he's part of the original cast, I got used and attached to him, don't want him to go

About Steroline, I think they're being also good friends so I like how they're handling their story I'd like to see a male/female friendship stay so sometimes, but I enjoy also to see Steroline together so much and think they're doing a good with them, so I don't mind if they developed them romantically Of course it depends which character and relationship you like, so it's normal for us to have different opinions

Can anyone explain to me just why it is so good to "just stay friends" with someone you're in love with?

Are you referring to Steroline? If you are, then, well, I can't speak for everyone else who's opposed to romantic Steroline, but I didn't want Caroline to fall in love with Stefan (and vice versa if that's the case) in the first place.
