XX Previously on The Vampire Diaries, Elena had a lot of catching up to do. The first few months of college are often something of a blur, but thanks to Katherine, Elena had an awful lot of shenanigans to sort through.

EPISODE RECAPS:

For an episode where Elena had a heck of a lot of catching up to do — made much trickier thanks to Katherine’s parting gift of a werewolf-venom-infused ripper virus — While You Were Sleeping seemed more about providing a bridge from the Katherine arc to the final batch of episodes of the season.
Vampire Diaries In Review: While You Were Sleeping (EP516) – Going Viral
By Crissy Calhoun, Vampire-Diaries.Net

I can only speak for myself, but I think the main thing I don’t like about this season is how exhausted I am with the main trio. At this point we’ve seen every permutation of their romances and their mental states and I frankly do NOT care anymore. I’m just so tired of Damon, Stefan, and Elena. All three can go take an Uber directly into a volcano for all I care. It would be a different story if this season had them moving forward or growing somehow, but in doubling down on the past it’s made them all regress into immature states that I just don’t care to witness after four seasons of forward movement. Fortunately “While You Were Sleeping” suggested that all three of them are starting to feel the same way. Damon and Elena even broke up! (Sort of.) Stefan is definitely headed more in the direction of a certain blonde judgey type. So, fingers crossed, things might be moving forward again?

The departure of Katherine Pierce leaves The Vampire Diaries with some seriously huge stilettos to fill. She basically singlehandedly saved season five, ripping it out of the narrative doldrums it threatened to sink into before she arrived on the scene. But now that she’s gone—taking her infectious turn as an Elena impersonator with her—will the show be able to keep the momentum her story arc started alive?

XXPreviously on The Vampire Diaries, beheadings! Canoodling! Ex drama! Very poor treatment of Stefan’s car! Just business as usual in Mystic Falls. Just a few more hours until Gone Girl (EP515), so here’s your last chance to revisit No Exit before the new episode airs.

EPISODE RECAPS:

Nothing like being forced to spend time in an enclosed space with someone to lead to canoodling! Whether orchestrated or enforced, No Exit saw the TVD gang in some delightfully tricky situations. And as with most trouble in the lives of the Salvatore brothers for the past 150 odd years, all roads led back to Katherine Pierce.
Vampire Diaries In Review: No Exit (EP514) – Be Cool
By Crissy Calhoun, Vampire-Diaries.Net

This week, both The Vampire Diaries and The Originals returned from their Olympics-imposed hiatuses with episodes that revolved around characters finding out a big secret the audience already knew. In both cases, this path to realization basically creates a filler episode, a way to move the story to the place it needs to be for the inevitable big confrontation in the future, but the difference was all in the execution.
The Vampire Diaries: “No Exit”
By Carrie Raisler, A.V. Club

This season of The Vampire Diaries has seemed, well, all over the place. I still cannot believe how much time the show wasted on such a truly terrible villain like Silas, nor how underdeveloped the Augustine stuff has been so far. But the biggest mistake this season has made was its attempt to be a throwback to Season 1 while also throwing all the old character dynamics in a blender. Those fundamental romances and friendships everyone’s always so worked up about? I think I miss them too.

Previously On The Vampire Diaries: Total Eclipse Of The Heart (EP513)Previously on The Vampire Diaries… Good god, it’s been forever, hasn’t it? A total eclipse of our hearts for three weeks. But it’s okay, lovely viewers: TVD is back, finally, and before we move on to new shenanigans, let us reflect on the weird, snarky, bloody glory of Total Eclipse of the Heart (EP513).

EPISODE RECAPS:

Both Caroline and Damon want to make a clean, no-looking-back, burn-the-bridges breaks from their past relationships. Caroline’s method — shredding photos and a fan-favorite horse drawing — is a little less dark than Damon’s, which involves murder, more murder, and attempted murder on a little brother who’s seen way more than his fair share of being murdered.

By Crissy Calhoun, Vampire-Diaries.Net

Guys, “Total Eclipse of the Heart” was a very existential episode! In a general sense it was also very retro: Tons of Season 1 feels all over the place, from the diary intro (again with the diary intro!), but especially to the very Season 1-seeming Damon. The only thing that was missing was the white pancake makeup, but other than that, this was old-school Damon for sure. (Still patiently waiting for another Depeche Mode underwear dance party scene.)

This is why you always kill the bad guy. The last few episodes have been blissfully Dr. Maxfield-free. But it was never a question of if he would come back, but when; the last vision of Elena and Stefan leaving him knocked out on the floor, but not finishing the job, ensuring his return to cause more problems. It’s just The Vampire Diaries’ way.

XXPreviously on The Vampire Diaries, the show snatched our hearts yet again with doppelganger hijinks, a welcome home party, and the good old “body in the road” trick. Refresh your memory of everything that went down in The Devil Inside (EP512) before tonight’s new episode!

EPISODE RECAPS:

In the immortal words of INXS, Every single one of us, the devil inside. And nowhere is that more true than in Mystic Falls. The Devil Inside was another top-notch episode, in my opinion, with the Katherine-bodyjacking-Elena plotline taking its next logical, and for some disastrous, steps.

They say that phone numbers are seven digits because studies showed that the human brain can only remember seven things at a time. That is definitely true for me, but usually anywhere between 4 to 5 of the things I remember are candy-related. I occasionally remember items from the menu at Popeye’s. But that only leaves one to two things that I can fit in my brain at any given time, so that means I forget A LOT of things. I especially have a goldfish memory when it comes to The Vampire Diaries, which I think we can all agree has ten episodes too many in each season. 22 episodes just seems like A LOT of episodes! It is crazy that ANY shows try to tell a 22-hour story anymore, let alone one like this, a complicated serial that borders on cable-level quality.

This. This is The Vampire Diaries firing on all cylinders.

Last week’s 100th episode was a lot of fun, but it showed obvious strain in an attempt to properly commemorate the momentous occasion while still telling a compelling TVD story. “The Devil Inside,” free from these shackles, practically explodes onto the screen with unfettered glee and doesn’t let up until the very end. It’s a good time, but more importantly it’s a good story told well, and that’s something that has been sorely missing for a lot of this season.

XXPreviously on The Vampire Diaries… the cast, crew, and fans celebrated 100 great episodes with 500 Years of Solitude (EP511). From the best drinking game ever to some huge plot developments to a whole bunch of awesome cameos, this episode had something for everyone.

EPISODE RECAPS:

It’s a very nostalgic time to be a hardcore Vampire Diaries fan as the show hit 100 episodes with 500 Years of Solitude on Thursday, and Twitter flipped the frak out over an episode that gave us so much to talk about. Thanks to the power duo of Julie Plec and Caroline Dries, who wrote it, we were treated to memories and manipulations, scandalous sex, and a chance to see so many of the dearly departed — all while pushing the season forward to its next logical doppelganger hijink.

By Crissy Calhoun, Vampire-Diaries.Net

So as we all know, Katherine Pierce – formerly Katerina Petrova, mother of Nadia and ancestor of Isobel and Elena – is mortal once again, thanks to the cure for vampirisim Silas was buried with; nothing can stop it or slow it down, and now 500 years of life is catching up with her. So, logically, we celebrate this by getting shitfaced downstairs from where she’s dying and playing the world’s best party game, What’s the Worst Thing Katherine Ever Did to *You*?

One-hundredth episodes can take many different approaches, from ignoring the occasion completely to going for full-on fan service. The Vampire Diaries wisely goes for something a little in between, cleverly continuing the season’s story while also taking ample time to give its fans moments with all of their favorite characters.

XX Previously on The Vampire Diaries…the fans have officially made it through FIVE long winter breaks! Given that a lot of us have trouble making it from Thursday to Thursday, this is an achievement that must be recognized. Way to go, you guys! There’s a lot of hype and info floating around about the big 100th episode, but don’t forget to show episode 510, Fifty Shades of Grayson, a little love.

Or just listen to Enzo talk some more. Whichever.

EPISODE RECAPS:

The long winter hiatus is just about finished, and before we move on to TVD’s one hundredth episode (!!!), let’s revisit the fall finale, Fifty Shades of Grayson. An episode that saw Katherine hoping for redemption, while Damon rejected the very idea of it. And somewhere, out there, is a vial of goop that can turn any one of our favorite vampires into a crazed vampire-eating ripper…

TV manipulates us because deep down we all want to be manipulated. So it’s not The Vampire Diaries’ fault that it figured out who our favorite character is and is currently putting her through so much angst and anguish and now the grim reaper’s scythe is hanging over her head. Because this show knows it will upset us to see these things happen to our favorite character! And let me tell you, IT IS WORKING. As much as my heart is not thrilled about what happened to Katherine in “Fifty Shades of Grayson,” I get it. I definitely get it. And I’m on board. Manipulate me, show. Make me feel things. I only wish I cared this much about the other plotlines! But much like a cat pawing its owner’s face at 4am, I’ll take what I can get.

XXPreviously on The Vampire Diaries, Whitmore College just got a whole lot creepier. Right? There’s only one more episode to go until the dreaded winter hiatus, so here are some recaps and reactions to cuddle as we consider the long, empty Thursdays to come.

EPISODE RECAPS:

Note: Crissy Calhoun’s review will be forthcoming soon, at which point we’ll add it in to this post. Sorry for the delay!

The biggest problem with reviewing television on an episodic basis, especially in a twisty, plot-heavy show like The Vampire Diaries, is that it’s very likely everything I’m about to complain about will be completely resolved in the next episode. If these issues are resolved, that won’t make “The Cell” a better episode of television—this one is a dud, no matter what happens in the midseason finale next week—but it will make most of the maddening, incomprehensible character moments in “The Cell” much less horrifying.
By Carrie Raisler, The A.V. Club

This week’s episode “The Cell” was very terrific so long as you could accept at least three ludicrous things as no big deal.

XXPreviously on The Vampire Diaries, Bonnie was suffering some ghostly interference to her love life while Damon showed us that torture can be an awful lot of fun if you approach it with the right attitude. Elsewhere on campus, there were a lot of bad decisions being made, so basically it was business as usual for college freshmen. Except for the biting and murder, anyway. Tonight we tune in for The Cell, (EP509), so now is your chance to brush up on Dead Man on Campus (EP508).

EPISODE RECAPS:

Was that awesome? Or was that awesome? Besides the fact that registering for classes never looked so fun, Dead Man on Campus shifted up the season’s focus by highlighting the friendships that get this gang through the worst traumas they suffer and the most morally shaky decisions they make. I know everyone would rather be getting drunk on bourbon — or at least the Salvatore brothers would — but let’s revisit that most excellent episode instead.

I really and deeply enjoyed MOST THINGS about “Dead Man on Campus.” It was one of my favorite episodes of the season! But it wasn’t perfect, for at least one very frustrating reason. Still though, a very good hour of television. Let’s talk about it!

Damon had a spotlight episode tonight, showcasing the exasperated snark and morally slippery world view that defines his character. Elena tasking Damon to torture Wes to figure out why he turned Jesse into a vampire shouldn’t be this entertaining, but it is—and that’s all because of what this show and Somerhalder have built Damon to be. I should probably be thrilled that this episode ended with Damon suddenly realizing he was similar to Jesse many years ago, a test subject sacrificed at the altar of the yet-unseen Augustine vampire. I can’t be thrilled, however, because the introduction of this information is just so horribly, awkwardly done that it’s almost comic.

XX Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley were working overtime in this episode, and poor Ian Somerhalder must be breaking out in a sweat every time he gets a script for fear that he might be next on the double-duty roster. Death and the Maiden deserves a second (and third, and fourth) look just to appreciate our hardworking TVD cast.

EPISODE RECAPS:

For an episode with some heavy storylines and a high death count, Death and the Maiden was a heck of a lot of fun, thanks to bonus Ninas and Pauls, more Katherine and Caroline moments, and the triumphant last moments of two bitter-to-the-end badasses.

Look, you need to know something: “Death and the Maiden” was one of the best episodes of the season so far. It was, it really was. First of all, MULTIPLE doppelgangers got stabbed to death. But also it was exciting and heartfelt and the dialogue was noticeably wonderful.

I’m not sure exactly what the show wanted to say about their central love triangle with the Qetsiyah/Silas/Amara story, but I have a sneaking suspicion it was much closer to the latter question above. Everything about this episode feels like the show declaring that it believes in true love. The tricky part is that the show obviously isn’t ready to declare exactly what that means for Elena. Is her true loved fated, with doppelganger Stefan? Or does Elena have the free will to choose another?
