Remember how Dr. Maxfield turned Jesse into a vampire? Well Jesse’s back in this week’s “Dead Man on Campus” and first thing he does is bite the hand that made him.

Bonnie now back from the dead, but the anchor to life and death, is enjoying college and ready for a rager that Elena and Caroline are throwing for her. First day though could be a tough one as she sees the spirit of someone who is ready to pass on to the other world, which means passing through her and pain.

Back at the Salvatore Estate, Stefan is dealing with his personal pains and thoughts he can’t escape. Trying to avoid everyone and not talk about his problems, Katherine persuades him to chit chat with her drunken self. He even gets to meet her daughter Nadia who happened to put a traveler in Matt and now needs her to remove him and find out what he wants. Turns out Gregger wanted to kill Katherine and Silas, good thing Katherine has the dagger that will kill Gregger, which she does and now Matt is free.

Now that Jesse is a vampire he calls Caroline to help him after he bites his roommate, little do we know that his roomie is Aaron who’s legal guardian is Dr. Maxfield.

The Vampire Diaries Recap: “Death and the Maiden”

Thevampirediaries

Depressed, heart-broken and oh so pissed off Silas is on the run and who knows what he’s up to. As we know from the previous episode “Handle With Care”, Amara is back and is willing to kill Silas to save herself. So much for one true love. At least Stefan has his memory back but is that a great thing? Read the recap HERE!

Poor Stefan is remembering all his pains and toils and getting caught up with all the Mystic Fall craziness. Now that they have to keep Amara safe, everyone is waiting for Silas to perform the spell to bring back Bonnie.

Death and the Maiden

Fun stuff with Katherine though as Dr. Maxfield runs some tests on her, she’s aging and faster than she knows. According to the doc she’s got a couple months to live. As her daughter goes to college to go find her, the two chitchat it up.

Things get weird when Jeremy and Bonnie go to give Amara dinner and she sees and talks to Bonnie. Bonnie and Jeremy get things going as they discuss plans with Elena and Damon about making Bonnie be the anchor so that she can be in both places at once. Though to perform this they would need a witch and this is when Damon goes to Qetsiyah for obvious reason. Filling her in on the anchor swap from Amara to Bonnie, Qetsiyah says she needs something powerful to perform the spell.

thevam

As Elena tries to make Stefan not kill Silas fearing that it is too dangerous, Stefan details his life in the safe, drowning and trying not to lose hope. To make peace with his emotions, he feels he must be the one to destroy him.

Now as Qetsiyah has jumped in on the plan to make Bonnie the anchor, kill Amara and have Silas stay on the other side forever, she has asked to have all the doppelgangers unite. Elena, Katherine and Amara all get together for Qetsiyah as she starts the spell. All seems to be going well until a powerful being, or Silas spiritually interrupts. Silas now in Mystic Falls and in front of Qetsiyah and thrusts a dagger in her. Now as he leaves her to die Stefan calls him to let his know that he has Amara. As Silas finds Amara in the woods, emotions take over and both profess their love. Amara ready to die, begs Silas to kill her, until Stefan comes and the two battle it shortly until Stefan sends a dagger into Silas.

Death and the Maiden

Back at the house, Qetsiyah is finishing the spell with Elena. Elena begs Damon to go find Stefan to make sure he isn’t hurt. Little too late, Damon finds Amara in the woods stabbing herself and slowly dying. Bonnie shows up to Jeremy to say her goodbye as she tells him that Amara is dying. Hearts racing, Amara dying and Qetsiyah performing the spell, Bonnie asks Jeremy to tell her the third thing he wanted to tell her. As he goes to touch her, he does! Elena calls her name and her and Caroline run to Bonnie. She’s back! But wait, is there a catch?

Now that the spell is complete Amara is dead and Silas is on the other side, Qetsiyah decides to kill herself. Much to Katherine’s distaste, who was waiting for her to stop her from aging. As she slowly goes she says, “True love prevails, universe be damned.”

Now to the catch, as Bonnie is now back, Tessa/Qetsiyah appears and tells her, now that she is the anchor every living soul that dies will run pass her, she will feel every single death and it will hurt like hell. Are you kidding me right now? Poor Bonnie. Caroline goes back to school and tells Katherine that she must move out, a poor aging K is miserable and ready to pack her bag when her daughter shows up again and tells her to go with her back to Prague. Katherine rejects her invitation and tells her that she will never see her again.

thevamp

Elena and Stefan have a discussion in the woods about Elena feeling guilty about being happy the past summer while Stefan was miserable. He claims that he wanted Elena to be the one that would rescue him, and Damon. As Stefan buries Silas, thoughts of his misery and being drowned in the safe come back to him and he collapses. Thinking it was supposed to be over once Silas was dead he gets worried.

Next week we deal with Stefan still feeling Silas and the emotions that he desperately wanted to end and Bonnie’s new life as the anchor to the living and dead.

What were your thoughts on this episode? Think Silas is really gone?

 

The Originals Recap: “Bloodletting”

Originals

Welcome back to my favorite recap of the week!  Previously on The Originals, Davina performed a spell to untie Sophie and Hayley, Rebekah was going to leave New Orleans then did it with Marcel and then Marcel discovered where The Originals are staying and took Hayley! Full recap can be read HERE.

Well well well look who’s back in town and taken Hayley for hostage! As Klaus and Elijah interrupt Marcel’s festivities to track down baby mama, we discover that she is not in his possession. It seems like none other than Tyler has gotten hold of dear Hayles and taken her to a distant place where Tyler tells her that her birthmark is a sign of werewolf royalty.

20131113-135404.jpg

Testing his way through hybrid experimentation, Tyler uses Hayley’s blood to turn a lone wolf into a hybrid. To our surprise and his, it works! Tyler has his hands full as he wants to destroy the baby so that Klaus can’t produce more hybrids and take over. As Tyler’s new hybrid wakes up, Hayley instructs him to keep Tyler away from her and he does, making us think that perhaps the new hybrid will listen to it’s maker, the baby.

20131113-135411.jpg

Hayley escapes Tyler and runs into Elijah! While Tyler encounters Klaus. The two angry hybrids have at it while Hayley tells Elijah that she can take care of herself. As Tyler stands up to Klaus by calling him a failure, hand in heart, Klaus realizes that all Tyler wants is death and to rest in peace. He lets Tyler go and tells him he doesn’t deserve peace and to go on living as nothing.

Rebekah on the other hand goes to Marcel thinking he took Hayley, he explains that he didn’t and the two have a talk about Rebekah leaving Klaus and standing up to him. Talks of killing Klaus come up but Rebekah stands away from it. Klaus can’t be killed and trying so will result in death.

20131113-135415.jpg

Elijah now on team Hayley stands up to Klaus about how Klaus is wanting to have this baby to rule and make an army. Angry at the thought that no one in his family trusts him he does what Klaus usually does, throws a fit.

Then it’s like, “oh no he didn’t”! Frustrated and hurt Klaus attacks Elijah and bites him. Knowing that a bite from a hybrid will be deadly, though being that Elijah is an original he won’t die, but still how rude!

Davina had her share of happiness when Marcel takes Josh, the vampire compelled to listen to Klaus, to have his memory wiped. After interacting with Davina, Josh and her have a nice talk and they grow to be friends. But Marcel has instructed Davina to make him forget about her. Josh tells her that he will keep her a secret and that it was nice to talk to someone normal, as in a normal superhuman witch with a gay,club going vampire. The sure make good besties though!

theorig

And I never thought I’d dislike Tyler as much as I do now! The episode ends with Tyler in front of Marcel telling him all about Hayley, the baby and how Klaus can start his own army of hybrids and the potential end of the vampire species. Goodness gracious where does it all end! Leave the baby alone!

Every week they just leave us hanging and wanting more! Can’t wait for what’s to come for Tyler and will Caroline be coming back to kick T’s booty?

The Vampire Diaries Recap: “Monster’s Ball”

Thevampirediaries

And we’re back! Last week’s The Vampire Diaries left us crying and gasping as friends reunited for Bonnie’s funeral and hottie Jesse is now becoming a vampire!

For the full recap of last week’s episode click HERE.

Halloween editions are always my favorite, though TVD is always spooky themed for me. This week The Monster’s Ball is upon college life and it’s dress up time for the crew.

We start off with Dr. Maxfield observing new vamp Jesse. Elena writes her sorrows as she deals with Bonnie’s death, Tyler and Caroline are back together and very much in love, or so we think.

Curious Elena knows there is more behind Dr. M and the death of her former roomie Megan. When she meets a random student at Megan’s memorial post she knows he is up to something.

thevamps

It’s kind of cute how Bonnie is still around and hanging with Jeremy. While they are with Damon they scheme for a plan to work with Silas. Bonnie tells Jeremy that this is not a good idea but since no one else can hear her Jeremy says it’s a go! Poor Bonnie is scared about the consequences of abusing magic. So here’s the thing, Silas wants to die, if he takes the cure, which is Katherine, he becomes a witch. If he dies as a witch he stays alive on the other side so he’s not truly dead. That’s where the problem arrives.

A mystical anchor that Silas wants to break down so that he can actually die is what is stopping him but Qetsiyah wants to keep it up and protect it so he won’t be able to die. Damon chitchatting with Silas is on the verge of setting a game plan until Silas wants Stefan dead to pursue his interest.

At the Ball, everyone is all dressed up and having a semi-grand time as Elena is on the hunt for finding out who Megan’s friend is who is interested in her death.  Damon offers up Stefan to Silas, Qetsiyah arrives and is interested in Stefan but Damon swoops him away. Once in the other room Damon snaps Stefan’s neck so that Silas temporarily has his mind reading powers so that he can fool Qetsiyah into giving him answers about the anchor.

thevamp

Dr. Maxfield arrives to the Ball, Elena asks for a dance and asks why he lied on the death certificate. We find out that Doctor himself knows that a vampire ripped her throat out and then warms Elena to leave her school and never come back. Sketchy professor right? But one thing we know is that he cares for Aaron, who happens to be the guy that was questioning Megan’s death. Dr. Maxfield is Aaron’s legal guardian.

As we go back to Silas pretending to be Stefan, the real Stefan wakes up and snaps Damon’s neck, runs over to Qetsiyah and tells her that Silas is the one that she’s been talking to. Qetsiyah not one to easily forgive, literally crushes Silas’s heart so he can rot from the inside out.

Meanwhile we discover that Katherine has a daughter and it’s none other than Nadia, the traveler. While Nadie has been keeping her for her own reason’s we find out the story of how Nadie was left behind.

Sad news comes as Tyler says goodbye once more to Caroline. Tyler who’s on a quest to seek revenge against Klaus tells Caroline that he can’t be with her while he wants to hurt Klaus as much as he hurt him and his family. Caroline angered by his attitude gives him an ultimatum, going after Klaus and never being with her again, or staying and being happily together. As Tyler takes a step, we know it’s over.

We end this marvelous episode at the Salvatore estate where Damon and Elena have dried up Silas. Katherine joins the gang and gets thrilled as she thinks that she has more time to spare now that Silas can’t get her. Wrong move K, Damon takes her and feeds her to Silas as she screams that she doesn’t want to die. Draining her of her blood, Katherine is left for dead on the floor…or so we think!

Next week Silas is up and running and ready to die!

The Originals Recap: “Sinners and Saints”

Originals

Last week’s The Originals episode was to die for! Literally, I thought someone was going to die because witches were going after Hayley, Davina’s lover boy had a great fall, Cami was going to explode, figuratively but still, from all her new info she had learned. Need a refresher? Click last week’s recap HERE!

The honorable Elijah is awake and in the presence of Davina. Which can be a good thing for The Originals.

Klaus, Rebekah and witch Sophie gather at their estate to discuss the madness and almost killing of Hayley. Sworn to protect Hayley and the baby, Rebekah stands by her word to Elijah even when Sophie tries to go out into the bayou to retrieve the remains of slayed witches. I’m getting ahead of myself though.Sinners and Saints

We find out some great news about this little thing called The Harvest which included a ritual where strength, good health and power were said to be given to the chosen witches. In reality it was just a quest to drain them of their power to have the other witches take as their own.

Cover your eyes kiddos as it seems that Marcel and Sophie had a sexual history long ago that helped Marcel learn about The Harvest. This is just a flashback so no need to get all worked up. It does give us an insight on how Marcel got Davina.

Meanwhile Elijah and Davina keep chit chatting away and we learn more about The Harvest and how Davina has to stay alive in order to prevent the ritual from completing. If Davina stays alive past the determined date, the witches will be punished and lose all their power. Davina, yearning to be a normal girl again, does not realize what this could mean.theorig

Davina tells Elijah the tale about the so-called Harvest about how no one fought or questioned the activities except Sophie. Treated like princess, Davina was enlightened and proud to be a chosen one until she realized that they were going to be killed. As the slaying began Davina was saved by the vampires, Marcel to be exact. Marcel only knew about the ritual because of Father Kieran who was informed by Sophie, more on that below!

Heartbroken that not even her own mother was fighting for her, Davina found comfort in Marcel. That night all the girls died and everyone’s power was transferred into Davina, the only survivor. Scared to die, she willingly went with Marcel, who saved her life.

New discovery! Sophie long ago went to Father Kieran to inform him about The Harvest that the witches were planning. Angered that Sophie went to him to rat them out, one of the witches put a spell on the priest’s nephew who was an alter server. The young boy, driven mad by unknown circumstances goes crazy and performs a massacre at the temple. Sound familiar? Yes, this is the exact boy who happened to have a twin sister, who happens to be back in New Orleans to find out more about her brother’s death – Cami! Whoa baby!

originals-ep-5

Well knowing that this magic is too much for Davina, Elijah offers her a deal. Safety, careful studying and learning of how to control her craft from Elijah’s mother’s spell books in exchange for him to be let go and his protection over her. Gosh darn it, doesn’t he just make you swoon?

Meanwhile, Klaus and Rebekah were fooled by Marcel when they were trying to one-up him by distracting him from going to the bayou. Marcel slips out and goes back to get Davina and move her to a new location because he’s afraid Klaus will take her. Upon departure, Davina goes into a somewhat trance and tells Marcel there is something dangerous out there and to take her back into the room she was in before fainting. Marcel does not know that Davina has let Elijah free at this time. As she is returned back to the attic we see that an established truce has been made between Davina and Elijah. He reminds her that he honors his family above all and their protection, as she reminds him that revenge against the witches is all she wants.

Hey side-note: did you know dear Cami is Father Kieran’s niece? Neither did Marcel, and now he’s forbidden to go after her. Funny how things are all connected to each other right?

Sinners and Saints

Towards the night’s end, Klaus and Marcel have a little go at it as talks of taking Davina come up, only to be interrupted by Elijah. Rebekah and Hayley have a touching moment as Bekah reminds Hayles that she is part of her family now. And bust out your handkerchief because tears of joy came out as Elijah walks in the door! Rebekah’s love for her brother is truly expressed at this moment and the sparks between Elijah and Hayley are just making me giggle. Those two are gonna be in love I just know it!

All’s come back to a great ending until, flashback into Sophie’s past where she discusses The Harvest and how to save the killed chosen witches. We find out that Davina does have to die in order for them to come back and be reborn…well isn’t this going to spice things up?

Can’t wait for what’s to come next week!

The Vampire Diaries Recap: “For Whom The Bell Tolls”

Thevampirediaries

Vamps be cray and this week’s The Vampire Diaries is just an example of how much crazier things can get in small towns.

Last week we found that Stefan has lost his memory due to the return of centuries-old witch Qetsiyah and her desire and need for revenge against her one true love Silas. Silas chasing after Katherine, who was taken by travelor Nadia, was intercepted by Qetsiyah’s spell she was performing through Stefan. Bonnie struggled to deal with death and for a moment in time had Matt on the other side to keep her company. With so many ups-and-downs we did discover that Katherine cannot be killed due to the fact that the blood that runs through her veins is the one thing that Silas wants – the cure.

*Spoilers ahead

Now as Remembrance Day is upon Mystic Falls, that can only mean one thing – trouble.

As dear bro Damon is working as story-teller to recap Stefan on the past centuries of his life, Elena tries her luck on reminding him of who he was. As sparks start to ignite between Stefan and Elena an almost kiss happens, I’m squealing with excitement, Elena pulls back to remind herself, and Stefan, that she is with Damon, something that they had neglected to inform him.

tvd

Matt, worried about his sudden blackouts and loss of time, sets up camera’s around his house to figure out what is wrong with him. As we all know Nadia has bestowed a passenger inside of him. Face to video with his “other self”, things get eerie when he gets a threat from the passenger.

Stefan, drunk and in ripper state goes through complexities in his head about what the point of being good and well-mannered is when all is lost for him. Caroline helps Stefan come to somewhat of his senses after he almost rips new hottie Jesse’s throat off. Only to go back home to the Salvatore estate to tell Damon and Elena that he no longer wants to be the man in his journals and live there.

Jeremy finally lets out the truth about Bonnie being dead, first telling Damon, who then has to tell Elena who has to tell Caroline. Elena distraught with the idea of Bonnie being gone feels obliterated and her emotions take over. Caroline finds console in the hands of Stefan who recognizes the fact that she is the only one he can trust in his new memory-less life.

tvdbonnie

The end of the episode brings us to a heartbreaking service for Bonnie, composed of Jeremy, Elena, Carolina, Jeremy and Damon. Bonnie appears to Jeremy who says, “It’s OK they need this, I need this.”

Bonnie reminds us that she is not going anywhere and even though they can’t see her, she is always with them. Yes, at this time I am crying like a baby as she tells everyone how she feels. Then SHUT THE FRONT DOOR, Tyler returns! Five heart breaking friends, and Damon, mourning over their best friend’s death.

Of course the story can’t move on without a little something, something to keep us on the edge of our seats! As we see Jesse getting checked by Dr. Maxfield he informs Jesse that he has vampire blood in his system and let’s him know what is to come! Shocked and confused Dr. M. does the unthinkable and kills Jesse to obviously make himself a newbie vamp!

Next week should be quite an episode with Damon wanting to work with Silas and the beginnings of a new life for Jesse. Also is Tyler here to stay??

The Originals Recap: “Girl in New Orleans”

Originals

Need some dirt on your newest obsession?

With only four episodes in, The CW’s The Originals is already making fans fall off their seats with anticipation of what is to come.

Last week’s episode was a whirlwind of emotions. Klaus and Rebeka began plans to take down Marcel, or win back his trust. So much action and drama emerged with Marcel and his best confidant Thierry who happened to be in love with a witch named Katie, yes the same one that had been tipping off witch and ware wolf activity. Theirry ended up breaking the number one rule Marcel had of killing another vampire and is sentenced to imprisonment only to be interrupted by Katie who tries to kill Marcel for punishing Thierry. With a great scene of spells and witchcraft Katie’s fate falls to death by Klaus.

Things got spicy with Marcel and his new love interest Cami as she realized what temper he had, and my heart skipped a beat when a spark emerged between Klaus and Cami. Klaus even closer to getting what he wants, got Marcel to give back Elijah as a thank you for saving his life.

*Spoilers ahead

Now in last night’s episode Klaus begins his own agenda of getting Davina and rescuing Elijah. Snooping and secret plotting begins as the Dauphine Street Music Festival festivities begin and Davina is itching to be out and about.

Klaus compels Cami to watch over Davina while she gets the green light from Marcel to join the party. As the story continues we discover that Davina has a little secret of her own as she is fascinated with an old crush, Tim,  who she meets up with. But what little Davina doesn’t know is that Klaus will use Tim to his advantage and make a deal with Davina. Things get heated up when Klaus plays mind games with her about why Marcel would have her all locked up, while if she went with Klaus, he could offer her freedom.

originalsdavina

Dearest Rebekah on the other hand, finds her way  to the secret hiding spot that holds Elijah and quarters Davina, by way of a priest, though to our surprise even the priest in this town keep a secret of his own. Not one to be compelled because of vervain, he goes forth to tell Marcel of Rebekah’s discovery. On the bright side she does find dear Elijah who informs her, hallucinatory version of him I may add, that he is safe and has his own plot on bringing Davina to the Originals side.

Let’s not forget about momma-to-be,  while Hayley is getting a check up, witch Agnes has a plan of her own to terminate baby wolfpire -yeah my own name I came up with. With many out to get Hayles, Rebekah comes to her aid only to be shot with an arrow and when she awakes Hayley is nowhere to be found. Scared to think that she lost her and the baby, she calls Klaus for help. In the end Hayley finds her way back safely but with many injuries that heal quickly due to her hybrid baby.

The plot drives forward as we discover that Cami’s twin brother committed murder and suicide at the church where he was an alter server. Cami distressed with her new found information has thoughts of it being an accident and a possible compulsion from a vampire. After Klaus compels her to forget about it, we start to wonder if he had anything to do with it?

Just as things start to get real good, I’m on the edge of my seat, Elijah has resurrected from his sleep!

This plot driven show is incredible! Every minute of watching it makes you never want it to end. Next week brings us a great story involving Davina and Elijah as well as Klaus getting more info from Marcel.

Until next time!
