    Yes, and wouldn’t it be nice to have him and Bex getting alone to see that fire unleashed.

  • ihatepeople

    As nice as that would be I’m guessing he’s going to be a little too pissed at her right now. If he’s blaming Matt he’ll be blaming her too.

  • a_softsong

    When Caroline tries to control her friends it’s to get things done. She was always planning an event. Caroline basically volunteered/told her friend what to do to help in her events.

    Klaus:  This is why I’m thinking that TVD is trying to humanize him or redeem him for this relationship to happen.  I really think JP wants them together.

  • a_softsong

    Oh, Damon will be angry with everyone including himself. I was just remembering him in action.  Need a fan and iced water.  LOL

  • a_softsong

    It seems like he’d learn something. I mean he’s been around in 3 centuries.  LOL  But, I am afraid you are right. He’d have to grow a back bone.

  • ihatepeople

    Well if she wants it will happen. If she doesn’t it will meet DE’s fate. :)

    I don’t see Caroline urging Elena to take Stefan to the dance as a non-controlling thing. Sometimes it’s for the right reasons like when she protected Bonnie when her mom was transitioning but sometimes she’s just pushy. So who would end up in control if she ever got with Klaus? She would be my guess.

  • a_softsong

    Klaus is a marshmellow. That’s why he thinks love make you weak.  However, I don’t think Klaus would have a problem separating his love for Caroline and keeping her safe like Stefan.

  • ihatepeople

    Yeah he’ll be mad at himself for not being there and trusting his brother to keep her safe. Can we say some drunken fun when he gets done kicking some ass?

  • ihatepeople

    I definitely don’t doubt that. He would be a fierce protector and have no qualms about killing someone.

  • a_softsong

    What I meant was he’d be a push over for Caroline but he’d have no problems being his fierce Klaus self to keep her safe. Sorry, for the misunderstanding. 

  • a_softsong

    Yes. He deserves a drink, perhaps a bottle.  LOL

  • ihatepeople

    No misunderstanding. I was agreeing with you.:)

  • a_softsong

    Great.  JP in one of the videos says they are gonna slow it down a bit this season. That will be really good. Now, maybe we can get back to some real character development and a great story. That was the 1st optimistic thing that I’ve heard from her.  I hope the writers can pull it off. They have the actors. Now we need a story.  Todd Williams is powerful too.  So rah rah rah.  Lets go.  

  • ihatepeople

    Did you notice in the Buzzsugar article when they were talking about a new clip where Stefan is mad at Damon because Damon made the decision to turn her? Sounds like he is taking charge and fixing everyone’s mess as usual. Of course he’ll be the bad guy for it.

  • a_softsong

    I really like the part where he says Damon is not nice.  That makes my heart sing.  I don’t want Damon to be nice.  I want Damon to be a vampire.  Be nice sometimes but over all I want him matter of fact and kick ass.  Rah, Rah, Rah.  It seems like I am getting what I want.  Let’s wait and see.  I really think they just got overwhelmed.  That much talent.  It must really be a doozy of a job to write for them.  They have to bring it in every script or they are wasting talent.  What a job. Rah Rah Rah. Do I need to say that I am happy with the reviews.  LOL

  • ihatepeople

    Yeah he can still have a heart but not be nice. What’s the old saying? Nice guys finish last. Might as well be mean. LOL.

  • ihatepeople

    Character developement and exploration will be a welcome change from the disconnection we saw with the last half of season 3. I’m good with mythology as long as it makes sense and is consistent.

  • ihatepeople

    Then he can “get naked”. We’ll need a cold shower if that happens. Hahaha.

  • ihatepeople

    Too many hard headed people running in their circle. That’s also the trouble with being too moralistic. You don’t know the difference between what’s right and what’s necessary.

  • a_softsong

    That is so true.  It’s like they consult on their phones about every move they make.  The only thing is Damon is the last call they make.

  • a_softsong

    Maybe he’ll take a long stroll down the hall or something after the shower, with a devilish smile on his face.  Call the paramedics.

  • a_softsong

    If she is really going to slow it down, getting the mythology correct and having it make sense shouldn’t be hard.  I am a big fan of science fiction.  Science fiction is one of those areas that gives you a big broad canvass to work, but holds you true to the smallest details.

  • a_softsong

    Don’t worry, Damon will always have a heart.  He might not want to acknowledge it, but it is there.  Damon will be doing some serious kick ass season 4.

  • ihatepeople

    Hopefully he’ll forget his towel again. Whooops!

  • ihatepeople

    How true. Also very important to remember what was previously written and don’t negate it later by doing something that wasn’t supposed to be possible. I’ve seen that in many trilogy movies and it’s ruined them for me. I’m all for creativity as long as it flows.

  • ihatepeople

    It’s funny how he tried to deny it in season 1 but he got called out on it. Then when he accepts it he gets called out because he cares too much. The guy can’t win. Nope his feelings run very deep and that’s not something that be changed no matter how much you hide them. That’s one of the many reasons we love him.

  • a_softsong

    Whoops, is right.  And would it be horrible to look and little Jeremy. That boy is fine.

  • a_softsong

    Yes, you have to remember.  Like the order of birth of the Originals. LOL  Exactly, like Esther in the coffin. That was totally unbelievable for me then and it is now.  The problem is once script was has been written and filmed (seasons 1 & 2) there was no changing it. The story began to unfold and they realize that they’d written themselves into a corner. That’s when things got hairy.  They couldn’t change the previous episodes, but couldn’t continue with the story without at least modifying the mythology to continue for the future of the show.  So, they decided to skirt the past and it didn’t work out.  It resulted in the latter half of season 3. A washout.

    I really think this is why they are slowing it down.  They have to have a believable product or they will be cancelled.  Nobody wants that.

  • ihatepeople

    Cancel, no thank you. Focus on the characters they have is a good thing. They can take time to decide from there where they want the mythology to go once a solid base for their characters has been reestablished.

  • a_softsong

    Just after Mikael was killed, Katherine explained, “Humanity is a vampires greatest weakness. No matter how easy it is to turn it off, it just keeps trying to fight it’s way back in.”  If this is true Damon will be conflicted about Vamplena but, I don’t think he will be sorry that she is.  Stefan is the one that will be twisting his hands and sitting with his head down in front of the fireplace going woe is me.  

    In the Comic Con event he sounded happy that she’ll be able to take care of herself, with his and Stefan’s help, he wouldn’t have to continually run in to save her.

    There were a lot of little subtle hints that shed some light on how some of the season would go.  When JP folds her hands and takes a deep breath, we know that someone has hit a nerve.  I think Alaric is gonna play a bigger part in the show than what is being let on.  Elijah, IDK.

  • a_softsong

    I really think the one thing that JP and KW are both missing is, this show is so good, they do not have to worry about the ratings.  If they just stop worrying about ratings, the sponsors are there too.  3mil facebook fans, come on.  All of the sponsors are lining up at the door. Last year I counted 13 commercials during the first break. They are there. They have a solid fan base with more to come.

    Now, it is time to write.  They have the actors.  Just tell a good coherent story.  Make is dramatic and action packed.  By action packed I do not mean killing someone every show or beating up Damon every episode.  Make it thrilling. Tooth grinding.  They have had the extra time to put this in place.  They have also brought in a new writer.  He’s doing episode 2.  They have good writers already. Let Bonnie do some over the top magic and for goodness sake, some hot sex.

    P.S. Leave the book story alone. I wasn’t thrilled by the book story as much as I am by the show.

  • ihatepeople

    God knows he had to bail her out of trouble all the time. LOL. Now he can kick some council butt with his spare time. I think at first he won’t be happy that she had to turn in order to live. I mean he spent a lot of time keeping her alive so he won’t be happy she died. Later I think he’ll be fine with it though. He accepts himself being a vampire whereas Stefan doesn’t. So how will Stefan acceppt vamp Elena if he can’t accept himself? Elena won’t be happy to begin with but I can’t imagine it will be good for her to be around someone who agrees about how it sucks to be a vampire. I would think it would just perpetuate her unhappiness but maybe misery loves company. Haha. I guess that’s the part Damon will have to help her with, learning to accept herself as a vampire.

    Yippie! Go Ric, go Ric! ;)

    JP said in the video on this site said that Connor is the equivalent of a Navy Seal.  So was Jesse Ventura and Minnesota got the best of him.  LOL  I’m still optimistic about season 4, but I am getting wobbly again.  Navy Seals are great, my grandson’s greatest desire is to become a Navy Seal since he was 10 years old.  To go up against Damon, Tyler, Klaus, Rebekah, Stefan, Caroline and Bonnie, he’d best do it in 1 episode before they find out he’s in town. If Kol shows up it will be bloody for more than just Connor.  Elijah will have to come to town to save the humans after he rips Connors heart out.

    Those group cellphones calls. That 21st century communications tool.
    I don’t care if Connor can somersault off walls, hover in midair, become invisible or is immune to compulsion his ass is grass in 1 episode.  Maybe, JP is looking to have him be more of a clandestine hunter with sneak attacks.  He’s done in 1 episode.  Vampires can hear and let’s not forget Damon is sneaky too.  Klaus would prefer a more direct approach but, the results would be the same. Dead in 1 episode.  Please, tell me how she’s gonna pull this off.  My limited imagination is at work again. I just can’t see him making it out alive and his opponents are vampires and hybrids.  Lucky strike or not. 

  • a_softsong

    By episode 3 Damon should be fine with Elena becoming a vampire.  Stefan who knows.  He knows the bunny diet doesn’t work.  Caroline totally rejected the bunny diet.  So, I doubt whether they will be teaching Vamplena the bunny diet.  If you remember, Alaric helped Stefan with his problem by making him embrace his dark side.  Damon would be very upset if Stefan even brought up the bunny diet.  That was also a subplot of season 1, Damon helping Stefan to get over his guilt and to drink human.  It is a big concern for Damon.  If Stefan knows what’s good for him he’ll teach her to drink human from the bags.  Now, Damon would teach her both bags and human.

  • ihatepeople

    Damon will definitely accept her as a vampire in no time but he’ll probably pissed with everyone over it for a while.

    I don’t think anyone will want Elena to do the bunny diet but who knows if she’ll insist. I would guess not given what she saw is the result of abstaining from it. What I meant was despite Stefan’s acceptance that he needs to drink HB I still don’t think he accepts himself as a vampire. I think he still despises himself for it. So if he can’t accept himself how well will he accept Elena no longer being human and how will he help her accept the change when after 146 years he still hasn’t accepted his own?

  • a_softsong

    If you think about it whether it’s the bunny diet or the fluffy little puppies, she’s still taking a life.  That’s why that really makes no sense to choose the bunny diet for this particular type of vampire.  At least with human blood she could drink from a bag and no life is harmed.  Which one is more humane?  And if I remember correctly, Caroline said the animal blood tasted horrible and she refused.

  • ihatepeople

    Funny you should mention killing animals as taking a life. As an animal lover I always looked at it that way too. You noticed on the panel interview Zach joked about offering up his arm to Elena. Maybe that will actually happen. For all we know that could be what Damon was doing in that clip when he had him by the throat. Going to be a long wait to find that one out.

    Damon is the one who missed being human and hated it at first but eventually he accepted what he is even if he didn’t want it. Stefan liked it at first but then hated himself for being one because of what he did. Remember the bar scene in season 3 when he and Damon were playing quarter bounce he said he had spent 50 years wallowing in despair and regretting his existence. Even with the blood lust in check he doesn’t like being a vampire because of what he is capable of.

  • a_softsong

    Yeah, I had a problem with that even in Twilight.  Animals have life too.  

    I’d forgotten about that scene.  Yep, Stefan is a piece of work. He’s on, he’s off, he on again, nope he’s off.  I’d regret my existence too.  LOL
