Reaction Post & Poll: Vampire Diaries - We All Go a Little Mad Sometimes (EP406)THIS POST IS A STICKY. KEEP SCROLLING FOR NEW POSTS.




Elena’s in for a tough time this week. As if feeling guilty for her actions last week isn’t enough, she has to deal with disturbing hallucinations on top. Let’s hope she gets help before she goes too far down the rabbit hole. Jeremy’s also in for a tough time of his own; seriously, no one wants Klaus taking an interest in them. It’s generally unhealthy, and it never ends well.

Once you’ve seen the episode and shaken yourself back to reality, swing by here to rate the new episode of The Vampire Diaries. All discussion about the episode is welcomed and encouraged in the comments of this post. Just remember, beware of spoilers if you haven’t seen the episode yet!

Quick guide to the poll options: All aboard the psychedelic hallucination train! 5 bloody hallucinations = LOVE, 1 bloody hallucination = MEH.

    Am I the only one thinking that Vampire Diaries has turned into a very sad show….:/ I don’t know, but I think it’s just so .. SAD, but hey, I really like the idea of Damon og Elena being together, but everything is still very sad, because Stefan’s the kind and sweet one, like the rock..and now everything is just so sad :s

  • Ingvild Katherine

    I hope you’re right! All the way through season 2 and 3 I was like “yeah, DELENA !!!!” but now it seems so .. wrong. Stefan is the one she fits perfectly with, they are meant to be together .. :(

  • Ktsirqvadze

    you are absolutely right, i wrote here that Elena fell in love to Stefan when she was a little girl but now she has grown and her feelings has changed too. It’s right thing,because we,who live in this world don’t love only one person whole life,am i right?

  • Cheryl Tmm

    Actually no. Nathan and Haley had a ‘separation’ period when she left to pursue music and kinda got cosy with that Tyler Hilton dude then Nathan went looking for her and realized she wasn’t using his last name aka not telling people she was married. Then when they went back to Tree Hill, she tried to make amends but he pushed her away initially. Bottom line is, it’s TV, there’s bound to be hiccups and obstacles in every r/s. In Naley’s it was the music thing, the Tyler Hilton crap etc.

  • Annie

    Wow he really wanted them to add him didn’t he lol.

  • †_ṂῘⱤ₳∏ƉΔ_†

    Definitely! This guys got some cojones! hehe

    I think it would be nice for them to make some room soon for us to have a bit more story of Klaus’s life. We never really found out how it came to be that he carted that coffin about everywhere for centuries, not knowing what was in it, nor do we know much about the brothers quarrels over Tatia or anything… 

    I wonder if we will ever see Tatia… 

    As much as I like badass Klaus, it would be nice for them to redeem him, a bit like how they have redeemed Damon. I think also we are going to get some nice Klaroline scenes coming up soon :D

  • †_ṂῘⱤ₳∏ƉΔ_†

    Hmm interesting… hadn’t thought of it like that. 

    I too hope that it wouldn’t be Stefan if that were the case… But I some how don’t think he would stoop that low. Once he gets over the initial anger from his split with Elena, I’m sure they will be team Salvatore all the way. Although with the next episode I’m not sure he will even have to feel angry for long as it looks like the whole sire thing is a strong “posibility” :/ which would totally suck, be very repetitive (Klaus/Tyler story) , and make for some real inconsistent writing …

    Perhaps this Prof Creepy (Xilus?) dude is somehow managing to manipulate them all into thinking that this cure exists only to get them all to go on a wild goose chase for his own purposes… If so, I would say he could be a good candidate for your theory ^^ 

  • †_ṂῘⱤ₳∏ƉΔ_†

    Oh yes, I saw that movie… I don’t recall seeing that though! I shall rewatch! lol

  • †_ṂῘⱤ₳∏ƉΔ_†

    How can we hope to understand anyone that says that a character like Damon isn’t layered… >.<

  • †_ṂῘⱤ₳∏ƉΔ_†

    Me too! I didn’t like her much on “A secret circle”, but I think she’s doing really well as a cheeky little wolf! And The chem between those two was definitely there… I would imagine Klaus likes his women with strong character like Haley and the new Caroline. However I find Haley’s character to be stronger than Caroline’s and would imagine that ultimately, Klaus would too. 

  • ihatepeople

    I know I can’t. I don’t know how many more layers people expect the writers to give that guy.

  • ihatepeople

    I like him better with a wolf character. Haley seems more sultry which seems to fit better with Klaus.

  • Soll

    I’m too worried about what the writers will do with Delena to be really looking forward to the next eposide in that regard.  I really hope that they will give Delena a real shot and make it a progression that stands a chance and has the time to develop.  I’ve just got a really nasty feeling that it will be another fake out by the writers and in a few weeks it will be all about saving and getting back with Stefan.

    Both brothers have changed over the seasons and now I’m not too sure that Stefan can claim the title of “Good Brother” when Damon keeps putting Stefans needs in front of his own desires and Stefan is now willing to turn a random human into a vampire to save Elena from the hallucinations.

    Not to mention that when Elena choose Stefan, Damon was expected to stick around and get his nose rubbed in it constantly whereas Stephan, even though he decided to end things with Elena thinks its acceptable to make snide remarks to Damon about it – “don’t pretend its not the best day of your life”.  The fact that Stephan chose Damon to go after her when they knew she was trying to kill herself said it all to me – If she had died it would have been Damons fault rather than his so he could be absolved of blame.

    I am looking forward to the Caroline / Klaus date and Jeremys and can’t wait to see how that happens

  • Kate

    Several of your comments have been very rude to other fans. Please be polite or we’ll have to start screening your comments. Thanks!

  • Kate

    Please remember to keep your comments polite toward everyone, including the writers. They are people with feelings too!

  • †_ṂῘⱤ₳∏ƉΔ_†

    Yeah, that would be nice too, as It was his wolf side that made his stepfather Michael reject him and perhaps if he had a wolf girl to be with he would feel more of a connection with someone who accepted him for that. I don’t blame him for having gone through all he did to have his wolf side back at all really… many who had been in his position would have been driven to do the same. Would like to see him redeemed though and accept that people could love him, if he lets them. 


    Oh, I know who’s idea it is….but, it’s just kinda a bummer “couples” why….or, I should say, if you “shipped” that couple, it’s got to be a bummer;)


    If he would do ANYTHING for Elena, he would have put her life above anyone else, period. And unfortunately, that’s not what happened. 

    I know why he did it, he listened to an 18 year old girl who thought it was more important to argue with him, wasting precious seconds, when he should have just got her out first and then went back for Matt. And yeah, it was the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen on a TV show to date.

  • Hilda Deleon

    so top question of the night when are you Damon or Stefan GONNA take us ladies out which i mean us women fans out? 

  • Mona

    delena will happen in e407 for sure cause in 408 elena is going to say sth shocking to her friends about damon. so be happy delena fans….

  • J.

    The story of Vampire Diaries is a story of a vampire learning to love himself and live with himself as he is, and a girl who learns what love is. Damon is a catalyst in both these situations.
    People have been watching Elena question the idea of what love is for 3 seasons because the ‘love’ she felt for Stefan was what she thought love should be. She also never wanted ALWAYS with Stefan – as we learn from the episode where she tells him that she never wants to be a vampire (but she knew if you love someone who lives forever, you have to live forever  that was a BIG clue). She also thought since her parents died that she does not deserve to be happy, which is why this relationship dragged on as long as it did. The relationship from the beginning was based on a lie – FROM STEFAN’s part – he lied about everything until she caught him at it, and then he would partially come clear about it.
    Yet because he saved her, Elena felt obligated to do the same for him, and that was the purpose of last season.
    The reality is that Damon, from the moment she met him has been inciting feelings that are unknown to her (hence why she says she does NOT know what love is), and are terrifying because more than anything ELena is afraid that if she was to let herself go there, and something happened, she may NOT survive it.
    We already know she is able to survive without Stefan – whole of last season proved that…however she has serious trouble surviving without Damon, hence the “where were you Damon’ at the beginning of last season…so I am not sure why people say this is new and surprising…he CONSUMES her…and that is a higher form of love…

  • J.

     Egyptians came BEFORE the Vikings so it would be before Esther and her spell. He is the Original Original…

  • J.

     how is it a love of her life when she planned on getting married and having children????

  • †_ṂῘⱤ₳∏ƉΔ_†

    I know that how it is in real life but didn’t becks say that they were before that too ? I must have heard wrong. I did think it odd at the time as their attire looked like it was from a much later date. Your probably right, it would make more sense.

  • VampireCommonSense

    Wouldn’t Silas come after the Originals? He said a powerful witch turned him into being eternal but Esther was the Original Witch? So wouldn’t he come after? Unless the Originals aren’t really the beginning of the supernatural creatures. We know there were werewolves before them so maybe witches existed before then too. This is confusing lol

  • VampireCommonSense

    That is one of the many reason Stefan and Elena needed to end things. Stefan may not be the ripper anymore but ever since Elena turned he’s been going down a dark path. He is compelling random people, deciding who lives and who dies, and is lying and keeping secrets. Remember in season 1 how Stefan HATED compulsion. Stefan is going down a dark path for the cure to turn Elena back to human, back to the girl she used to be. If every other vampire can handle turning and becoming a new version of themselves so can Elena. That’s why Stefan searching for the cure is selfish. It isn’t vital or necessary and most likely isn’t even real. He just wants the old Elena back before his ripper days when everything is rainbows and peach pie. Stefan is no longer a saint even though he is still seen that way by other characters. Stefan needs to discover himself again. He can’t be in a relationship, at least not right now.

  • Alexanderangel

    hey delenas i think that nina and ian want to be together on screen but jus you guys wait TRUE LOVE ALWAYS PREVAILS!!!!!!

  • Victoria_dudley

    I was wondering if anyone could answer this question I have been thinking about! So when Stefan told Elena he “can’t do this anymore”… was that another code thing (if you remember back to season 2 when they pretend fought)… ? And also if Elena replied “I know” (just like her response in the previous “code”) is that her saying “I love you too” ? or just “I know you you can’t do this anymore”?.. Just curious!
