I apologize for my lack of postings in the last two weeks. School is nearing its end thank goodness and finals are coming up. Hopefully I can get back into the groove of blogging with this post. I thought I would try something new instead of just a boring ole’ recap. This highlights my top 10 favorite things about The Vampire Diaries 4×07 “My Brother’s Keeper” episode…here it goes.
10. PROFESSOR SHANE AND HALEY IN CAHOOTS!
Something BIG is about to go down in Mystic Falls, and Hayley and Professor Shane are conspiring together. What does this mean? Hayley just wants Tyler to be left of out it (dawh!). I don’t know what to make of this. I’m intrigued to say the least.
Seriously though, these guys are so hot. Don’t get me wrong; I LOVE Tyler and Caroline but Michael Trevino and Phoebe Tonkin’s chemistry is just off the charts. I ship them. I’m waiting for them to get together. WHATEVER YOU DO JULIE PLEC, DO NOT GET RID OF TONKIN!
8. DAMON= AWESOME BROTHER
Damon tries to get Stefan to go on a brotherly bonding adventure to find out more info about Professor Shane or just get drunk and have fun (AWWWW). Stefan, still reeling over his break-up with Elena, shoots him down after telling him about him and Elena. In true asshole form, Stefan’s all like “Don’t pretend this isn’t the best day of your life” and basically Damon’s expression says “Yeah, it really is. But hey I’m trying to be a supportive older bro. Don’t hate on me.”
7. MEANWHILE, AT THE LOCKWOOD MANSION
Damon finds out about the break-up from Elena at the Lockwood Mansion, Elena tells Damon they need to talk. Elena tells Damon that she and Stefan broke up because of her feelings for him (OMG). They start eye-flirting BIG TIME, and then DelenaBlocker #1 Professor Shane comes by looking for Damon. Sigh.
6. CAROLINE AND ELENA’S CAT FIGHT
Caroline is SICK of Elena’s more than obvious infatuation with Damon. Caroline is TOTALLY Team Stefan, which I can understand since Damon did practically abuse her in season one via compulsion. However, as a friend, it’s ultimately not her business so she really should stay out of it. Plus, she is about to become the BIGGEST hypocrite if she continues to delve into a flirtationship with Klaus.
5. JEREMY TRIES TO KILL ELENA
DAMN! Didn’t see that coming. After Stefan forces Jeremy to kill a newbie vampire to get more of the map tattoo thingy for the cure, the hunter inside Jeremy grows. He doesn’t want to kill Elena but the hunter’s power inside of him is becoming uncontrollable. He tries to kill Elena. Stefan comes in and breaks it up. Elena is naturally spooked about this.
JESUS, MARY AND JOSEPH. YES! While Jeremy is off with Stefan getting Buffyfied, April is left escortless at the Miss Mystic Pageant. However, Matt swoops in and saves the day! THAT SMILE. DEAR GOD. PLEASE LET THIS BE A NATURAL OCCURRENCE. To be honest, I was perfectly okay with the episode after that. He was just too adorable.
3. KLAUS AND CAROLINE
OMGOSH. Klaus and Caroline’s scenes together in this episode are why I totally and 100% fully support them. It was just so effortless. Klaus calms Caroline down after she bitches at Elena about Damon. They share a few laughs. He evens reads from her Miss Mystic application. They get personal. She asks him if he had ever thought about being human. Only once he said and it had something to do with a hummingbird. The thing about Klaus and Caroline is that they bring out the BEST in each other. They are both control freaks and when they are together they challenge and test that authority with each other. Also, I haven’t seen Caroline look that genuinely happy in a LONG time. I’m anxious to see this explored. As much as I harp on Tyler and Hayley’s chemistry, Klaus and Caroline’s is even bigger and more intriguing.
I was like, REALLY? This is a scapegoat attempt to not fully explore Delena. However, after I thought about it…this is BEST THING THAT COULD HAPPEN TO DELENA. Once Damon finds out about the sire bond and Stefan twists the knife and says that her feelings for him aren’t real, Damon will break it off. Elena will FINALLY have to prove her love to someone. She won’t give up on Damon because her feelings are real. The rest of the season will have lots of Delena angst but it will all be worth it in the end when she proves to him that her love for him isn’t due to the sire bond…
I still have a theory as to the reason behind the sire bond: Maybe it will turn out that a sire bond between vampires can only happen if those two vampires are meant to be together.
1. SOULMATES. TWIN FLAMES. DELENA.
All while Stefan and Caroline were conspiring about the sire bond, Damon and Elena were at Casa de Salvatore. Elena had to move in because it wasn’t safe for her to live with Jeremy. Elena still isn’t sure about herself as a vampire but Damon says he has never seen her more alive. They reminisce about last year’s Miss Mystic dance where they danced together. She says she wanted to dance with him today and he asks her to dance in front of the fire (OMG OMG OMG).
I have been waiting 4 SEASONS for this. For me, it was perfect. It was more passionate than ANYTHING Stefan and Elena have ever had together. She was actually the REAL Elena before she went over the bridge the first time. She finally gets what she wants: passion, adventure, and even a little danger. He finally gets the love he has so desperately wants and the acceptance from the woman he loves. The sire bond is useless because he didn’t force her to sleep with him. BAM. END OF STORY.
DELENA IS HAPPENING AND NOTHING HURTS.
