The Vampire Diaries – Ghost World Review

28 Oct

I should have known I would jinx myself, in my Thursday what to watch post I talked about how the Vampire Diaries delivers and that’s why it is my favorite. Well, it didn’t deliver tonight, this was pretty lame. 

Let me see if I understand this correctly, vampires, who are already dead can come back as ghosts when they are killed? Huh?

Moving on

At the end of last week’s episode we saw Mikal take a bite out of Katherine, and ghost Mason attack Damon.  This week’s episode didn’t even hint at Katherine’s fate. WTH.

But we did get plenty of vampire ghosts, some friendly like Casper, some not so much.

After Mason got done kicking Damon’s ass, he revealed his real reason for coming back was to help Tyler. He told Damon and Alaric he knew about a weapon to kill Klaus. 

Best parts of the episode were the Damon and Alaric scenes, I love Alaric for not forgiving Damon so easily, and Damon wants to be forgiven. I haven’t enjoyed a bro-mance this much since Clark and Lex on Smallville.

Once again the Lockwood’s have another buried secret on the property. Good thing they have a lot of land, the writers can keep finding stuff out there for seasons to come.  Mason and Damon head out on their adventure thru the tunnels to find the “weapon” that will kill Klaus.

Meanwhile Elena, still not willing to give up on Stefan, asks Jeremy to use his new-found gift as a medium to contact the ghost of Lexi to come and set Stefan straight.  Jeremy is too busy sucking face with Anna, I don’t care what Bonnie says he is not cheating, and she needs to get over it.

Lexi shows up, she and Elena chain Stefan to a chair and the intervention begins.

Bonnie and Caroline work together to get rid of the ghosts, Bonnie’s grandmother is summoned and tells Bonnie how to get rid of the ghosts. They have to destroy Elena’s necklace.  Off they go to the Salvatore mansion to retrieve the item, but it is gone. (big surprise).  Anna took it, (bigger surprise) she doesnt’ want to go back, she wants to be with Jeremy. 

Then come the bad vamps seeking revenge on the founders, and lucky for them we are having one of those founders celebrations. This one is about lighting lanterns, to symbolize when the town was safe again after the founders killed the vamps.  This history lesson comes courtesy of the head of the history department and Alaric’s boss.  Did I mention he is a member of one of the founding families.  All the warning signs are there, this guy is like the red shirt guy in the original Star Trek. Whenever they beamed down for a mission if a red shirt guy was on the team, he was dead before they got back. So you knew this guy was a goner.

The bad vamps start killing and everyone including Anna realizes it must end, she turns over the necklace.  Bonnie and Grams do a little spell, destroy the necklace and all the ghosts go poof. But not before a sad music montage, of everyone leaving. Very emo.

Lucky for Mrs Lockwood they go poof before they kill her, not so lucky for Damon, Mason goes poof before he can show what he found in the cave. Damon must go to Alaric for help, he agrees, and off they go to the cave. Alaric discovers cave paintings, next episode we get out our decoder rings and figure out what it all means.

Lexi is not successful, before she goes she tells Elena how to finish the job and poof she is gone. Elena, kind of grows a pair and tells Stefan if he wants help she will help him, but if he doesn’t change he will lose her forever.  Blah Blah.

There are only 2 more episodes before the show goes on hiatus until January. Here is a sneak peak for next week’s episode “Ordinary People” (makes me think of the Timothy Hutton movie).  Looks like we all need some post it notes.
