'The Vampire Diaries' Recap: Bonnie And Damon Fall Out And Other
The Vampire Diaries season 6 brought out the dark sides to Caroline and Stefan. Last week on the series, Stefan regained his humanity-due to the help of Mama Salvatore. Caroline quickly took off to avoid feeling again. Last night, the emotions came pouring back in for Caroline on The Vampire Diaries.

Meanwhile, a major decision involving the cure drew Elena and Damon closer together, while pulling him further from Bonnie and Lily. We also got to see Lily "I only care about my family" Salvatore show some emotions to an unexpected ally. It was a very emotional, and eventful night on The Vamp...

After quite a long hiatus, The Vampire Diaries returned last night. The episode also mark the reappearance of Matt and Tyler, who have been noticeably absence since Liz's funeral. Their return wasn't completely greeted with joy, especially from their ex.

Meanwhile, on The Vampire Diaries, we looked into Enzo's past. Apparently, Lily Salvatore sired him, a fact that complicates his bromance with Damon. Damon and Lily's relationship also took a turn for the worst when she expressed how little she loves her sons.

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 6 Episode 13 Recap: 'The Day I Trie
Bonnie Bennett rarely receives fair treatment on The Vampire Diaries. But The Vampire Diaries season 6 has taken Bonnie abuse to a new level. Thirteen episodes into the season and she's still not home.

Anyone would be depressed with that kind of treatement. So last night Bonnie decided to kill herself on "The Day I Tried to Live." Does she succeed in this episode of The Vampire Diaries season 6?

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 6: 4 Game-Changing Moments From 'Pr
Last night The Vampire Diaries season 6 aired their most anticipated episode yet. For months, everyone's been talking about the twin merge. People have debated whether Kai, Jo, Liv, or Luke would die. In the end, The Vampire Diaries tossed their rules away and gave us a twist. A twist that cost one twin greatly.

Unexpected moments filled this episode of The Vampire Diaries. These moments ranged from romantic to heart-wrenching. So we compiled the four most talked about moments from "Prayer for the Dying."

'The Vampire Diaries' Recap: 'Woke Up With A Monster'

January 23rd, 2015 9:55am EST
'The Vampire Diaries' Season 6 Recap: 'Woke Up With A Monster'
The Vampire Diaries season 6 returned last night with yet another strong episode. Season 6 still lacks the charm and excitement from seasons 1-3, but it's definitely an improvement from seasons 4 and 5. The second Paul Wesley directed episode, "Woke Up with a Monster," showed clear growth and confidence. Lots of little wonderful visual tricks we don't usually see on the show.

This Vampire Diaries episode had a strong focus and vision. There were loads of parallels throughout the varying storylines. The season is also making sure no man is left behind when it comes to storylines, even if so...

'The Vampire Diaries': 5 OMG Moments From 'Fade Into You'

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 6: 5 OMG Moments From 'Fade Into Yo
They could write a book on Kai's complicated family history on The Vampire Diaries. We learned about Kai's ruthless quest for power. However, The Vampire Diaries' proved that all evil leads back to bad parenting. We also learned that the Gemini coven is basically the Originals family, but with witches. The Vampire Diaries season 6 episode 8, "Fade Into You," had so many OMG moments. Here are the biggest ones:

1. It's All Relative

'The Vampire Diaries' Recap: Kai's Sister Lives And Other Big Re
The Vampire Diaries season 6 continues to show promise. Bonnie grows even more into the witch we always hoped she'd become. Her nemesis Kai also gets more devious by the minute. And we love it. Sadly for Delena shippers, Damon and Elena went from awkward exes to complete strangers. The Vampire Diaries season 6 episode 7, "Do You Remember The First Time?" led to some big reveals. Here are the four biggest ones.

1. You Don't Mess with a Bennett Witch

Bonnie wakes and finds that Kai needs her help to fix the Ascendant. The Badass Bennett strikes again and kills him. She then reassembles the ...

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 6: Why Did Damon Return Without Bon
The Vampire Diaries season 6 started off with the adorable and intriguing pairing of Bonnie and Damon. Their bickering has been the highlight of this season-so far. Last night's episode ripped our duo apart. One had to stay with the devilishly charming, but totally psychotic, Kai. The other got to return home on The Vampire Diaries season 6. We'll give you one guess to get it right. Hint: the one that always sacrifices themself did it again.

Last night's episode of The Vampire Diaries season 6, "Black Hole Sun," revealed some major secrets. One of them gave the Salvatores a new family member. The episode also proved that Stefan sucks at secret keeping. Like The Vampire Diaries of yester years, it gave one major shock after another. If you missed last night's explosive The Vampire Diaries season 6 episode, here are the most important reveals.

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 6: Bonnie and Damon Need Their Own
Tonight's episode of The Vampire Diaries season 6 took a turn for the better. We've had a lot of brooding and drama through the course of the series' six seasons. So we enjoyed some lighthearted banter, especially between Damon and Bonnie, and more playful storylines. Last night's entertaining episode of The Vampire Diaries, "Welcome to Paradise," proved four major facts about the Mystic Falls characters.

1. Damon Actually Loves Likes Bonnie

Most of this episode of The Vampire Diaries revolves around Damon and Bonnie's bickering. We can't say we're not used to it. Damon and Bonnie have ...

The Vampire Diaries' Season 6 Episode 2

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 6 Premiere: 'I'll Remember'

October 3rd, 2014 9:10am EDT
'The Vampire Diaries' Season 6 Premiere: 'I'll Remember'
The Vampire Diaries season 6 premiere showed a very high Elena trying to deal with the pain of losing Damon. Meanwhile, Stefan goes off, starts a new life, and doesn't even call Caroline. Rude. This episode of The Vampire Diaries season 6, "I'll Remember," revolved around explaining how the former kids of Mystic Falls adjusted to their new normal. Long story short, it wasn't pretty.

Dreams of Damon

Elena tricks her friends into believing that she's a well-adjusted vampire. She's now a pre-med student who works at a hospital. Normal, right? Not so much, because Elena has developed a litt...

‘Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev Sinking Her Teeth Into ‘The Originals’ As [SPOILER]

September 26th, 2014 1:50pm EDT
‘Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev Sinking Her Teeth Into ‘The Origin
And you thought we’d never hear the word doppelgänger ever again.

Who will be the first character from this season of “The Vampire Diaries” to head on over to “The Originals”? It is none other than Nina Dobrev, but she won’t be showing up as Elena Gilbert.

Exclusively reported by E! News, Dobrev is visiting New Orleans as, wait for it, Tatia. You’re probably asking yourself, “Who?” For those who don’t recall, Tatia was introduced three seasons ago in relation to Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies). As the original doppelgänger, Tatia had a complicated relationship with the M...

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 5 Finale Recap: 'Home'

May 16th, 2014 10:02am EDT
The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Finale
Death had long ceased as a threatening end to a character in The Vampire Diaries. Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec used surprising deaths to create a spectacular sense of the unexpected in the early seasons of The Vampire Diaries—those days when people swore that “No, no, it’s NOT Twilight on The CW.” But every character died. Some died multiple times. What does a writer do when the ultimate stake loses meaning and power over the world? Undo it.

Season 5 of The Vampire Diaries marked the gang’s transition from high schoolers to collegians. Amazingly, college barely figured into the season....

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 5 Episode 21 Recap: 'Promised Land'

May 9th, 2014 9:08am EDT
The Vampire Diaries - Promised Land
Michael A. Allowitz’s direction in the teaser, or perhaps more credit is due to the editor of “Promised Land,” was effectively jarring. The Travelers took Stefan and Elena at the end of last week’s episode to drain more of the blood to use in the spell that’d break the magic spell and eliminate witches’ powers, the vampire magic, the hybrid magic, and all that fun. Markos cuts Elena deeply in the wrist, four days into the blood-letting, because she wants her to bleed until she can’t speak. The woman from last week that tried to kill Jeremy in act to save her boyfriend’s life frees Stefan an...

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 5 Episode 20 Review: 'What Lies Beneath'

May 2nd, 2014 10:27am EDT
TVD - What Lies Beneath
The thin line between life and death became thinner in “What Lies Beneath” as The Other Side crumbles, as the Travelers gain more power that threatens the death of the nearly unkillable (the vampires), and as the ghost of the episode emerges as the most dangerous threat during the surprise getaway to Caroline’s deceased father’s cabin in the woods. There’s a lot of angst, too, about death and its real possibility not as a trifling nuisance but an ultimate consequence to the whole being born and living that is an inevitably once oxygen hits a baby’s lung for the first time and the bay cries....

'The Vampire Diaries' Review: 'Man On Fire'

April 25th, 2014 8:34am EDT
The Vampire Diaries
The vignette drive season five has started to cohere into a united narrative during the final stretch of season five. The Vampire Diaries’ writers told the season five in fits and starts, sidetracked by more exciting tales about mothers and daughters and hijackings, eager to show more of Damon’s bad side from the 1950s when a prisoner of the Augustine’s and how their torture of him created a vengeful monster that killed off-screen during these last five years of focused and determined writing that rehabilitated that character (if you will). Season five, though, had a through-line nestled in...

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 5 Episode 18: 'Resident Evil' Review

April 18th, 2014 8:52am EDT
The Vampire Diaries
Something’s not right in and beyond Mystic Falls. The Other Side is greyscaled. Forces beyond one’s comprehension pulls supernatural folk who’ve been in The Other Side into a black void—even an original vampire is afraid of what’s happening on the other side. Grams tells Bonnie that something happened when the dead travelers touched her, affecting the other side in ways no one understands. In Mystic Falls, visions of domestic bliss and contentment overwhelm Stefan and Elena. Marcos is responsible for the overpowering force of the black void on the other side, as well as the visions of happi...

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 5 Episode 17: 'Rescue Me'

March 28th, 2014 8:28am EDT
'The Vampire Diaries' Season 5 Episode 17: 'Rescue Me'
So, “Rescue Me” is one of those transitional episodes. You’ll read a lot of comparisons to chess if you’re the type to read numerous reviews after watching an episode of television. “Rescue Me” also subsists on narrative convenience the way a vampire subsists on human blood. The habit is very bad and nasty for vampires. It creates villains and all sorts of interpersonal problems for when good vampires don’t want bad vampires to feed on innocent humans. Narrative convenience is very bad and nasty for any writer, but especially professionals. Any person has the sense of what feels right durin...

Recap: 'The Vampire Diaries' Season 5 Episode 16 'While You Were Sleeping'

March 21st, 2014 9:14am EDT
The Vampire Diaries
Whenever character matters more than plot, the fifth season of The Vampire Diaries has succeeded. Whenever plot chips character away, makes them pawns on a chessboard to maneuver so that plot point X is hit, or so that the season moves somewhere by season’s end, I lose interest. The Katherine hijacking storyline was great fun, dynamic, a distraction from a directionless season. Katherine’s gone, Elena’s back, and everything’s sort of miserable again. “While You Were Sleeping” deals with what Elena missed while away from her body, the ripper virus Katherine injected into her body to destroy ...

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 5 Episode 15: 'Gone Girl' Review

March 7th, 2014 10:03am EST
The Vampire Diaries
Nadia and Katherine sort of drove the last couple episodes. Their relationship, their backstory, their honesty and transparency with each other, were what grounded the two characters. Nadia wasn’t a great character when introduced and never moved beyond what she was created for: to, sort of, humanize her mother. Katherine was her most relatable and human after her brief time as a human before she hijacked Elena’s body. Theirs was a story of misfortunate, bad and lousy luck, tinged by tragedy. Whenever two people miss their chance with each other in life, in any kind of relationship, it is a...

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 5 Episode 14 'No Exit' Review

February 28th, 2014 9:07am EST
The Vampire Diaries - No Exit
Jean Paul-Sartre wrote a play, his most famous play, titled No Exit. In French, the title is Huis Clos, which is a legal term that refers to a private conversation behind locked doors. Sarte, one presumes, drew a parallel between the conception of hell and that of the courts. The Vampire Diaries’ “No Exit” doesn’t draw a parallel between humanity’s conception of hell and our awareness of the legal system. I’ve made a habit of referring to famous works of literature or drama when I write about The Vampire Diaries. The most famous line in Sarte’s play comes at the end when a character realize...

"The Carrie Diaries," "Hart of Dixie," "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Tomorrow People" were not mentioned in the network's press release.

'The Vampire Diaries' Review: 'Total Eclipse Of The Heart'
So, Dr. Wes stumbled into a legion of travelers to protect him. Great. It was a sparkling start after last week’s bummer of an episode. The introduction of Dr. Wes and the travelers are among my least favorite things about season five. The Damon torture episode before the winter hiatus was the nadir of TVD. Last week’s episode suggested a change for the rest of the season. I wrote about this whole three acts to a season thing that doesn’t work now. Oh well. Dr. Wes and the travelers act as catalysts for Damon’s further descent into regrettable life choices and then mosey off. They’ll be bac...

Review: 'The Vampire Diaries' Loses Even More Direction In 'The Devil Inside'

January 31st, 2014 10:00am EST
The Vampire Diaries
What the hell was that? “The Devil Inside” resets season five for the second time in twelve episodes, resetting for the first time in the season premiere. Katherine is Elena, Damon is Devil Damon again, Tyler’s back adding nothing to the story, the Whitmore plot has been sucked dry, and a directionless season loses more direction it didn’t have to lose. How did that happen? More and more The Vampire Diaries’ fifth season reminds me of Dawson’s Creek’s fifth season: directionless and broken up into three distinct ‘acts.’ Season five of TVD has Damon’s reversion to his season one self; season...

'The Vampire Diaries' 100th Episode Review: '500 Years Of Solitude'

January 24th, 2014 10:17am EST
The Vampire Diaries
If I drank alcohol, I’d toast to 100 episodes for The Vampire Diaries. 100 episodes is a tremendous accomplishment for any show (except for According to Jim). I remember a few notable 100th episodes for shows I love. Immediately, the terrible 100th episode of Dawson’s Creek comes to mind. Kevin Williamson also created Dawson’s Creek but left three years before number one hundred aired. Dawson’s Creek took the gang to a beach for a MTV party, and Dawson remembered he loves Joey. Buffy saved the world again in Buffy’s 100thepisode and died. ANGEL bid farewell to Cordelia in its 100thepisode, ...
