Half the loss of enjoyment of TVD episodes doesn't come from the drop in quality for me, it comes from the fact that there's nobody to discuss them with..

For an episode without any of the female regulars, this episode was actually pretty good. The Defan scene almost made me tear up.

Well there are plenty of people on twitter. That's where I discuss things.

^For me twitter is a difficult place to discuss a show but I don't use twitter so often so maybe that is because of that.

I agree with everything you said. Also about the Defan scenes. I wouldn't have expected that. I usually don't care that much about their drama.
I had to laugh when Damon was compelling the cop to think that he is Matt Donovan "Matt Donovan got this"

I also love how JP directed the episode. I guess she is also in love with snow because this is the second time that she used snow as a prop

I liked Paul playing the human character but this series killer vampire from Memphis he definitely played like Silas ... there was not much differences. But I always find him funny when he is playing Silas so I liked it. Especially when he was so badly trying to tell Damon that he loves him and that he is his flesh hilarious. So fake.

This episode was AMAZING!

Paul was stellar. Directing was fantastic. Loved every second of it.

JP once again did a great job directing. I'm surprised at how good she is, considering this is only her second time as a director.

i liked this one, i found myself invested in the storyline. probably because it revolved around stefan and damon. i still love their bro ship even though its deeply flawed.

i do agree that stefans character is very similar to silas so it feels kind of like a repeat but i agree that it was at least interesting to see paul play that, so oh well, ill try to get into it.

still dont buy that valerie/stefan and alaric/caroline relationships at all. i miss my caroline!

but at least we didnt have the other annoying heretics in this episode.

I felt like when Alaric told Valerie he truly fell in love with Caroline. This is by far the worst pairing TVD has ever created and coming from someone who has disliked/hated most of the romances on the show, that's saying something.
Why couldn't this just be a fake relationship for appearances?

i agree with you. but i do like that at least alaric knows that caroline only said yes for the kids and that she doesnt love him. but ehhhh even alaric loving caroline just doesnt feel like it makes sense at all.

not everyone has to fall in love with caroline.

Alexa! We have such similar taste in shows!

I want Alaric to love someone who loves him back.

well to be fair i watch too much tv.

and same. i thought that jo was alright and i liked alaric with jenna a bit (i was actually an isobel/alaric fan too) btu im still waiting for someone special for him!

i thought he and the doctor chick (torrey devito's character) had potential but it didnt happen.

valerie/alaric had decent chemistry i thought.

So destroying the stone free's all the souls? LMAO. Okay well that was easy. This storyline is SO dumb. Got to be one of the worst storylines they've ever done. There was no thought put into it. Three years of torture for them to reveal they could have just burned the stone in the first place?

"Marty" looks like Klaus. But I just feel so bad for Stefan! He has the roughest life I swear. I want to cry for him. Dude never has it easy.

I really enjoyed the scene between Alaric and Matt. I loved what Alaric said to Matt about what happened to him. Matt has definitely turned cold. And its insane that he is still in mystic falls dealing with this crap when he could have gotten out a long time ago.

It's nice that Alaric and Caroline had at least a little moment of peace within those three years where they were just normal people. Even though I bet Caroline was still tortured over missing Stefan.

I appreciate Valerie wanting to help Stefan and Alaric being brought into the loop too. Not having the heretics around really makes me enjoy the episodes more as well but I am missing Bonnie and Caroline a lot. Valerie and Alaric should have become a thing! She should have had the babies put in her or something. They could have been a way better match IMO and Caroline could have gone on the run with Stefan instead. UGH.

Damon pretending to be Matt. Side note, Ian looked uber hot this episode.

THE STEFAN AND DAMON SCENES WERE EVERYTHING! I LOVED THE DANG PHONECALL. I loved Stefan telling Damon off for bailing on him. When Stefan said Damon wasn't going to find him? GUH. HEARTBREAK. Damon finding Stefan.

I did really like this episode though. I loved the focus on Stefan even if it was hard to watch at at times.
