Vamp Diaries Episode 6 Chat & Question of the Week!

So far I am not a fan of the CW's site for the show. On Saturday I finally had sometime to watch the show and the new episode was nowhere to be found and they had the wrong descriptions up for the two epis that they did have available, lame. So I had to resort to downloading it from iTunes, though as I write this Epi 6, Lost Girls, is up and running on the CW site now, figures.

I loved the episode this week! And yes, Vicki is now a vamp, people guessed right! I have to say that I was surprised that Stefan told Elena about him being a vampire- I was expecting the show to draw out Elena finding out the truth for atleat the length of the season, but I applaud that this is not the case! I was pleased with the way that Stefan told Elana the truth, it felt real and didn't leave any real questions dangling in the air about if he was good or bad.

What did surprise me was the fact that Vicki was running around in such an interesting choice of apparel for most of the Epi...pale pink panties? Evey time she turned around I thought we were seeing bare ass on prime time tv.

I have to applaud the performance by the actor that plays Damon- I loved all his facial nuances throughout the show, especially when he gave his arm to Vicki to drink the first time and then rested his head on top of hers.
We did learn a lot in this episode- I have to say that I did not see Kathryn as the sire to the boys! I had this other idea in my head, though I wasn't sure how the boys had become vamps. Did any of you see that one coming?

Oh yes, and the dumb moment of the week goes to the idea of a Vampire Compass...seriously? Did they really think that it was a good idea to go into the dark woods with a Vamp compass to guide the way? Wouldn't it have made more sense to use it in the daylight to find the lair? Did they think that there was one Vamp? Well, I was glad to see the moron tv guy die.

QOW: Why do you think Damon turned Vicki? Just for fun and chaos like it seemed or do you think it's leading up to a plan?

3 enjoyed the bouquet.:

I think Damon gave her his blood because he was bored and maybe then saw a way to complicate his brother's life more my completing the deal and turning her. It will be interesting to see more of the back story to find out more about the boys' reaction to being turned by Elena (I was also not expecting her to be the sire). Seems like Damon is at least a little bitter about being undead and obvs. likes to act out.

I was ALSO surprised to find out Katherine was the sire, I thought she was going to be the reason the guys turned not WHAT turned them.

As for Vick's apparel, I thought the SAME thing Jes HAHA!

As for turning Vicki, I think he did it first, because he was bored and she wouldn't DIE (he has tried TWICE now) and second I think he hopes it will complicate things in ELENA'S life since Vicki seems to have a thing for her brother and then by association it will cause problems for Stefan.

Have any of you read this series of books at all? I was just wondering how true to the books this show is staying

I wasn't too surprised about Katherine being the one to turn the boys... I sorta saw it coming in that episode. I agree with Heather on why Damon turned Vicki. I think he was just bored with her and everything else in general. It doesn't seem like he puts a lot of thought in to stuff, he just does what he wants in that moment.

I had to laugh at Jes' comment regarding Vicki's attire... I was watching that eps with my friend David and he THOROUGHLY enjoyed what she was wearing.. typical guy! haha As for the vamp compass, LAME! Only an idiot would go into the woods at night, by himself, trying to find a vampire. Seriously? you deserve to get bitten!

I'm curious to learn more about Elana's friend the "witch" or whatever.

And no Heather, I have not read any of the books. I was in Borders bookstore this weekend and noticed the HUGE book display for this series though. It was sitting right next to Twilight's huge display.. competition much?? haha
