How would we describe episode 3.03 of the Vampire Diaries in only four words? Oh. My. Holy. Klaus. So much went down—from Elena almost becoming a hybrid meal to meeting another member of the Original family, “The End of the Affair” teemed with intensity. Unfortunately though, we can’t do this outstanding episode justice in simple prose. The only way to handle such complicated emotions (i.e. fear, rejection, love, nostalgia) is with good ol’ fashioned poetry.  Let’s dance,  shall we?

  2. aaclass Said:

    great haiku, can’t wait for another episode.

  3. bite me Said:

    one word AMAZING!!!

  4. Theo Said:

    @Jesse Lol! Elena looked so horrified when Damon joked about the drool. Who wouldn’t though? ;)

  5. Keira Said:

    The twenties were splendidly portrayed and for once, I loved Stefan. For the first time he seemed genuine and comfortable with himself. I also loved Stefan/Rebecca chemistry. In fact, I’ve seen more chemistry in one episode of Stefan/Becca than in two seasons of Stelena.

    I missed more Damon and Elena. Almost had and Stefan’s overdose…

  6. Theo Said:

    @Keira So glad you enjoyed the 1920s flashback scenes – they were very well executed. And although we think Stelena have chemistry together we can’t deny that they have chemistry with others and Bex and Stefan certainly do!

  7. Keira Said:

    @Theo … Concerning Stelena chemistry, I’m afraid we’ll have to agree to disagree. For me Stelena has always been kind of High School love. They meet at the toilet and love at first sight! They have never make me feel anything but boredom, sorry. I don’t want to offend Stelena fans, but, honestly, that’s what I think.

    But I have no qualms in admitting Stefan’s character was a lot more appealing in last episode and also his chemistry with Bex was remarkable, there were sparks!

  8. Susy Said:

    This episode was amazing,intriguing, and very revealing. I have to agree to agree with @Keira. There is more chemistry between Stebecca than Stale-ena. I loved the flashbacks to the 1920s. It is always nice to look back on a time period so very different from our own. This episode had Caroline screaming, Elena pouting, Damon fuming and as usual,sexy and funny as ever, and Stefan moping and Klaus scheming- CLASSIC TVD! Damon and Elena in bed together- Did anyone notice how she just cuddled up to him and then she tried to play it off like it was a mistake?! That scene alone was PRICELESS!!! DELENA FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. LOVE Said:

    I LOVED it! I love flashback episodes, and this one had music to go with it as well which was awesome. I also loved that I was totally not expecting the Klaus+Stefan=BFF storyline or that Stefan used to mack with Rebecca, who is an original and KLAUS’S SISTER! :O
    I’m also scared for Elena who has Rebecca’s necklace!!!
    I laughed at the part where Elena cuddled up next to Damon,(She really loved it ) and he went through her underwear :P but I had hoped there would be more of them and that sexual tension between them ;( but over all… A GREAT EPISODE!!

  10. Dego Said:

    the episode was amazing, beyond my dreams.
    Love the 20th flashback scenes
    Also love to get to know more about the ripper
    But which one will he choose , Elena or Rebecca

  11. Anne W. Clarke Said:

    The main thing that blew my mind was that Klaus ( Nick ) and Stefan were friends.

    I have a theory. … Perhaps Klaus has always known where Kat was. Waiting patiently for the next doppleganger, he followed her around. (Kat was in Chicago too in the 20’s.) Klaus knew Stefan fell for Kat,who turned him, and would most likely fall for anyone who looked like her; Elana. … I think Stefan may have innocently led Klaus to Mistic Falls. He then waited for all the pieces to fall into place before giving Stefan his memory back.

    As far as Stefan’s feelings for Becca, she was a part of his life in a much darker time. I think his feelings for Elana run deeper and truer. Like I said in an earlier post, after they spend a little time on memory lane, they may team up to resurrect the other orginals. It may take them all to kill Klaus.

    Another thought. … I wonder if Klaus or Becca will even consider that Stefan may have found the necklace and gave it to Elana. Afterall, in all the chaos of that night decades ago, anyone could have picked it up. Of course, Kat saw Stefan pick it up, but will she tell???
