The Vampire Diaries continued its steady streak of mind-blowing episodes and, according to many viewers, episode 3.05, The Reckoning, may have been the best yet. With its large number of shocking twists and unexpected events (including Stefan going 100% bad ass, Matt drowning himself in order to be able talk to Vicki, and Katherine awakening the meanest vamp of all the land Michael), TVD ep 3.05 was out-of-this-world extraordinary.  And a non-stop stream of  amazing tunes only helped amplify the emotional resonance of each scene.

Tune into this week’s Vampire Diaries playlist based on songs from “The Reckoning”:

  1. Will Do” by TV On The Radio: Plays during Damon & Katherine nighttime car scene.
  2. Please Ask for Help” by Telekinesis: Plays when Klaus drags Elena into a gym full of students setting up Styrofoam cups as part of Senior Prank Night.
  3. 10,000 Lovers” by Ida Maria: Plays when Damon and Katherine get out of the car.
  4. Torch Song” by Shady Bard: Plays when Damon walks right into the hospital and rescues Elena.

    I love you, Elena. And it’s because I love you that I can’t be selfish with you . . . I don’t deserve you, but my brother does. —Damon, TVD Ep.208, “Rose” i just recently cough my eye on these words and i just though.. everything did turned around here in tvd,,, and i do mean everything,,, now i am not so shure that Damon is right now, he was right at that time, but since things change,,, i just want to get your opinion ,,, What would happen if Damon and Stefan would be just like they used to be,,, Stefan did change,,, but did damon changed too,, i though he did, but honestly he already were sensitve and caring before Stefan leaving Elena … What do you guys think ? :) i think i know the answer, this will probably gonna be retorical question…
