I'm not sure if I like or dislike Katherine taking over Elena's body. It's good for Nina, as she doesn't have to keep playing two characters at the same time in multiple scenes. I like Katherine, but I feel like her arc is dragging along when it should have ended. Also, how does Katherine have vampire powers just by being in Elena? I understand her body not being able to get inside a house and healing, but I would've thought that compulsion came more from the mind/soul, which shows through the eyes, so that Katherine wouldn't be able to use it since she became human. It just felt really weird to me.

TBH, now that the Originals have their own show, TVD has lost a significant portion of my attention. I'm still watching, but not intently. This is how I was for the first 2 seasons until Elijah and Klaus showed up. I just feel more connection to the Originals.

I'm loving all this Katherine action we're getting! I don't think Elena can possibly be gone for good, there's got to be some way to get her back but I really hope we get a good dose of Katherine before all that happens. And I definitely hope that when Elena inevitably does come back, it won't be at the cost of Katherine's existence.

Whoops, I forgot to respond.

You're absolutely right about the tear in Klaus' eye. Joseph seems to be doing it frequently, as a way to show just that tiny slice of vulnerability hiding under his anger, desperate need for power, manipulations, and hard exterior. I DVR every episode for most of the shows I watch (some I delete right away but shows like The Originals, TVD, Supernatural, and Arrow stay in my DVR for the whole season) and I try to watch some episodes of favorite shows twice. With Klaus, he needs to appear so hardened and tough, though he has so much raw emotion underneath. He can't often let people see that "weakness" (he did open up some with Caroline, we see it more frequently in flashbacks, etc), but that vulnerability is what rounds out his character and makes him so loved by the audience. The ultimate theme of the show is supposed to be Klaus' redemption and the family dynamic as the roller coaster journey happens to take him from who he is now to who he will hopefully become. The best way to show glimmers of who he can, and eventually will, be is to give just the tiniest indication of what is happening within him with things like a little tear in the eye, a little shift in facial expression, etc. Joseph is most definitely incredibly talented!

The CW Orders Additional Scripts for The Originals, Tomorrow People and Reign


OK , I guess I'll be called on it again...and maybe it is just the lighting..or maybe I just wanted to see it BUT I just watched TO twice now and both times to me at least, it looked like a misty tear in Klaus eyes again.
When he had the wolf girl..so bad with these new names yet....up against the wall and his hands around her neck and Rebekah pushed him off...when she said to him that it was OK to care and he moved his head, his eyes were gleaming ( misty)..then they sat down on the step thing there and she was talking so soft to him..you could see a little tear in his right eye..right in the corner....especially when he was saying about giving Elijah to Marcelles.

I can't record it , so I can't watch it again..but the 2 times I seen it, to ME that's what it looked like. Unless, I was just reading something into it...but I like the idea of the tear and the fact that Klaus can actually feel something, even if he keeps fighting it.

Just wonder if anyone else seen it?



I will take each day as it comes.
As my grandfather always told me.."Don't ever get old,it's a ..." I should have listened to him!!

I was worried about The Originals because I didn't really care for the New Orleans plot, but the pilot made me actually interested in it. And I was reminded why the Originals are my favourite part of TVD. I was sad that Elijah got staked, because he is my favourite out of everyone. I understand he has other filming commitments but I do hope he is around a decent amount. At least it looks like next week Rebekah will be around to reign in Klaus. I won't miss Elijah as much with Rebekah there. I also liked that we got some new flashbacks, I'm definitely hoping that continues.

I liked the season premiere of TVD too. I love the idea of Elena & Caroline going to college. I love happier Elena. And I always love Caroline, so having her around so much is awesome. It's nice to see their friendship at the forefront, and the Salvator romances pushed to the back a bit. I think it's kind of cool that they have a little mystery to solve at college.

I'm also optimistic about a blossoming bromance between Damon and Jeremy. That has some potential. And I kind of like how Damon is forced to be the responsible one dealing with all this craziness going on in Mystic Falls. I did think it was weird that Silas didn't pretend to be Stefan for longer, but at the same time it is something I like about this show, that they don't drag out dramatic irony for very long. I figured that Silas is so powerful he doesn't want to or think he needs to stoop to pretending to be Stefan.

I also loved that Katherine was around in this episode, and that it seems like she will have an important part to play. She is another one of my favourites... And even though what I tend to like most about her is her strength and cunning, it is pretty fun to see her miserable with having to be a human. At least for now.

I was always a little on the fence with TVD BEFORE the Originals joined the story. I fell in love with the show as the Mikaelsons took shape and their story was revealed. I'm not sure how much I'll love TVD now that they moved my favorite characters to The Originals.

As for the premiere, I think there will be growing pains, not just because of so many characters leaving, but because of the potentially show-killing move from high school to college. I'm interested to see where they're going to take it. I think the actors did really well - especially Paul. I'm just not sure where the writing will go. (I'm also wary because I saw what happened on Supernatural when the creator/showrunner left and the writing went in a not-so-good direction.)

The Originals premiere was awesome! Julie had to figure out a way to write a premiere that was a 2nd episode that both gave new scenes for the regular TVD viewers but introduced brand new viewers to the world with enough information to get them caught up. I think what she came up with was a really great compromise to get everyone involved. I also LOVED the flashbacks - especially seeing Sebastian again! I love what she did with Hayley and Elijah. Elijah gets to be the pseudo-white knight to start and Hayley can feel comfortable... for a moment. I didn't see it coming that Klaus staked Elijah, but there's a very specific reason for it: Daniel has a starring role in Saving Hope, which films in Canada, and he's a brand new father. He isn't able to put in as much time on set to film as we'd all enjoy, as he had a contract with TVD as an occasional guest, then contracted with Saving Hope as a starring role, so the contract for The Originals must work around Saving Hope's schedule. By staking him, he is removed from the storyline for awhile to film his other show then when he has time he'll come back to The Originals. In a way, he's almost hedging his bets - if either show is cancelled he's still got a job! haha After he spent his entire savings and was totally broke filming Broken Kingdom, I'm sure he is willing to put in extra effort to make sure he has money coming in now, especially now that they have a daughter.

Having Elijah narrating the new pilot is awesome, I think. New viewers are introduced to who he is before he's taken away for awhile, so that it keeps everyone on edge wondering what's really going on in this insane family.

THE CW | The Vampire Diaries returned to 2.6 mil/1.2, up in viewers from its May finale but down 19 and 25 percent from its previous premiere. The Originals (in a “special” time slot) led out of that with 2.15 mil/0.9, down 25 percent from Beauty and the Beast‘s year-ago launch but delivering the same retention (75 percent) out of TVD.

The Originals’ Review: ‘Vampire Diaries’ Spinoff Revisits Backdoor Pilot at Its Own Risk
****************************************
********

I found TVD very boring tonight..especially as the opening show for a new season.
So why this big thing of Stefan doppelganger if you are going to reveal everybody knowing he's a fake in the first few minutes of the show?
I guess from the build up, I expected more. I hope it greatly improves...to keep the ratings up.

The Originals - I enjoyed it- kept my interest. I also don't mind them repeating parts of the spin-off pilot, especially for people who didn't see it. But also as a refresher , and from a different point of view.
I don't know why they have Klaus back to stabbing Elijah again? How many times is he supposed to take it and not turn on Klaus? If it keeps up, will make the scenerio unbelievable.

I will take each day as it comes.
