Vampire DIaries Episodes 7 & 8 Chat and Question of the Week

So Jes is on vacation, but VD is not. I figure since I'm watching and I have fingers to type, I'd keep the discussion going. So we are a bit behind, but some very interesting things have come up on the show in the past two weeks. Vicki became and vamp and then died (for good) as one. Elena knows all about vampires and isn't sure how much she likes that fact. Plus we have gotten more glimpses into what the townies know as well as Bonnie's witches powers are starting to emerge.
So the questions that have been swirling around in my head are regarding where they are going connecting these peripheral, but important character groups in with the vampire's story line. What do you think Damon is doing getting in with the town protectors? What do you think his "master plan" is? Is is more to just cover his tracks and keep an eye on what the others know or is it more sinister than self preservation? Also, what role do you think the witches will play in this story line? It's obvious through Bonnie's (or is it Damon's) crystal that there is some connection between vampires and witches, but what are your theories on what kind of ties vampires and witches will have?

8 enjoyed the bouquet.:

I live in australia and we get episode two weeks after yours... I just watched Elena be told by stephan that he is a vampire... And on monday night I have to watch more.. So I was thinking that maybe Bonnie and Elena help eachother somehow....

I'll answer you're questions in the order you ask them to make sure I don't miss any.

I think Damon's getting in with the protecter people because he wants them to trust him. I think his master plan is to take all suspicion away from himself and then blame everything on Stefan or Elena. Or maybe Jermey. I have no idea what role witches will play, but I think they might come to have a major part. I mean, Stefan's going to find out about Bonnie and vice versa soon you would think, and what will that bring? I have no clue about that crystal though, and if it's anything like the Night World books (the other books written by the same author for those who don't know) there's blood ties and all this other complicated stuff I don't really understand.

And also, if episode 8 is the one I just watched, vampires have an incredibly hard time making up their minds!! Let's start with Twilight: Edward tells Bella to stay away from him, then he admits to loving her. Then he leaves (douche bag), and then he comes back and they get married and do nasty things. and now with Vampire Diaries: Stefan was kinda stand-offish, then they date, then Elena gets mad at him and he wants her back, and then she goes back to him and suddenly he's a poo-head and saying that she should stay away from him!!

I mean, COME ON PEOPLE!! I don't even change my mind that much, and I'm a teenage girl! **shakes head in disgust**

Okay, I'm done now.

I'm not quite sure about Damon's end game. I am hoping there is something deeper to him--maybe in the Katherine story that ultimately makes him have some redeeming qualities. But maybe he really is just a jerk and wants everyone to be tormented or maybe die. But, like I said, I hope there is more.

As for the witches, I am very curious to find out what powers the crystal has. I mean it must have some useful powers if Damon wants it. I think my theory on the witches is that they have no implications on the vampires (such as a mortal enemy like vamps and wolves) but are more to give away the story. Bonnie has visions and will maybe show us what is to come and help Elena out.

I still haven't watched Vampire Diaries, so I have no idea what were talking about, but I love Z's psychoanalysis on Edward. XD

Thank you Peacey... I think.

Trust me, that WAS compliment.

OMG ZZ you had me laughing!! Love the douche bag reference and the "they get married and do nasty things" comment LOL!!!!

ok on to VD questions...

I think Damon is getting in "good" with the townies because he's trying to protect himself. In last week's eps it was obvious he didn't care about other people's feelings when he got the Vamp girl killed to save his own butt, and take the pressure away from him (if there was any suspicion at all). As for his master plan.. I am not sure of that yet. I think there's still more to his story that we don't know about yet. Every once in awhile we see a glimpse of his "soul"... so I am curious to see what path he leads us down.

If you saw the previews for this week's new eps it shows a lot about Bonnie... and it looks like Stefan figures out her whole witch thing. I'm happy she told Elena her "secret"... just wish Elena would tell Bonnie her's!! As for the necklace... there has to be a tie btwn the vamps and the witches with it. Not sure on it's "powers" though.

ok...I've been re-reading this post since it was added to the blog. I have watched all the epi's and I've been trying to come up with good responses to these. Honestly It'd all be stuff that's already said!

However I am ENJOYING this show (and really thought I wouldn't) I'm excited to see where Bonnie's story line goes! It seems pretty cool! I have a feeling I'm going to get sick of the "back and forth" drama of Elena and Stefan but we'll see....

Thanks for keeping up on Jes' posts of V.D.!
