The Vampire Diaries 1x20 - Blood Brothers
There was nothing about this episode that I did not love. Lots of Team action to discuss. I'll Start with my favorite finally back on track (I hope) TV couple:
Watching him in that cell fading between hallucinations and memories was way OUCH. That was hard. Paul Wesley continues to bring the A game every single week. And so do his arms. WOW. Anyways.... I hated hearing him tell Elena that he wanted to die. So very sad. And though we all knew it wouldn't happen (no way we go forward without him) it was still incredibly moving. The most impressive part of this entire thing was Elena's ovaries of steel and her unwillingness to give up on the man she loves. She was brave and trusting almost to an insane degree. Would I have been as brave? Doubt it. She really impressed me. And I must talk about that kiss. Whoa baby. I squeeeeee'd out loud. Really loud. I feel so relieved. That probably means they're going to pull the rug out from underneath me next week. Moving on.......
I have been madly in love with this team since before it started. These 2 were meant to be. They have so much chemistry and such a great mix of sympathy and distain for each other. Poor Alaric. In the middle of an epic bonding session, Damon has to bring up the fact that he has tasted Alaric's true love in more ways than one. Nice. Typical Damon (who we love anyways). We haven't seen the end of Team Dalaric yet though. Nasty Uncle John (who I personally want to set on fire) will bring them together again I'm sure.
Maybe it was Malese Jow's Team Anna vid that got me or maybe I was a fan before then but I realized at some point (seconds before they kissed) that I really wanted it to work out with Anna and Jeremy. And OMG did they impress me. Sexy as hell and more moving than I could have thought possible. I cried real tears when she laid next to him to say goodbye. The centuries old teenager having to give up her first love. Crushing. To make matters worse for Anna, she comes home from that nightmare to find her mother dead. Cheers to Malese and to the writers. I was heartbroken for her.
