What is Wait Watchers? Well, with all these book-turned-TV-show shows going on and being awesome, I figured it's about time I post about them. Especially considering I read some or all of the books related to the following shows. Feel free to debate, discuss, and compare... amicably, of course.
Warning: Some recapping and episode jumps will be incorporated in the post. So, if you've missed episodes you might not want to read this. Be sure to check for the date in the heading.
THE VAMPIRE DIARIES...Ordinary People, Season 3, Episode 8
So this week's episode was pretty crazysauce!
I've been so anxious to learn more about the Originals since forever, since last season. I mean vampires as old as time practically. Besides needing a lot of anti-aging cream, what else do we need to know about these Original vamps? Viewers soon discover that their origins lead back to the Vikings (love the mythology!).
And Elijah is back to play his part in the flashbacks - from Rebekah's POV - that tell the tale of their coming to America, their cohabiting alongside the werewolves. The original witches.
Alaric, Bonnie, and Elena team up to try and decipher the story that's written underneath the Lockwood property, telling of the time when the Originals finally became vampires and what led to their family's separation. Gleaning that Michael was pretty much a creeptastic bastard put me on the edge. I'm a little worried about our modern vamps, especially my Salvatore brothers. (After Damon nearly got killed when Michael showed up for interrogation.)
Meanwhile Damon releases Stefan from his bondage underground and tries to get the Old Stefan back, attempts to recruit him on their side for the fight against Klaus, who Stefan has no choice but to be loyal to.
Elena learns what actually happened between the Original family from the only living source around - Rebekah, who's reluctant to tell and only concedes after hearing that Michael will possibly be awoken. Another ominous warning comes straight from her, when she tells Elena that waking Michael will doom them all.
Rebekah grew on me this episode! She delivered feisty line after line. "You don't threaten me, Elena. You will learn what I allow you to learn..." Only having said this after Elena attempted to put on the whole I'm a Bigger, Better Bad Girl Than You And Could So Take You On routine *rolls eyes*, PLEASE GURL. And then when Rebekah threatens her with something like, "If you fuck with my brother I will tear you apart..." (okay, I added the f-bomb in there, but it was just so cool!) Rebekah won serious mean girl points. In this mean girl power struggle, Elena lost. Big time. Now if Katherine had been there...
Seriously, where the hellski is Katherine??? O_O
The episode basically ends with a ginormous bomb being dropped on Rebekah, a new truth to the story she hadn't been aware of and I felt terrible for her. This is the first time I've sympathized with her character.
All I can think now is, what the eff is going to happen now??
THE SECRET CIRCLE... Beneath, Season 1, Episode 8
My mom goes, "I hate Cassie."
I kinda have to disagree. Cassie started out for me as a nothing-special girl, which pissed me off considering how much I loooved the original Cassie, BUT, but these days Cassie has been rising on the cool-o-meter. What with her dark magic that makes her go all beserk and bad-like and powerful. I admit, her power attracts me to her character more. Cassie's dark side is waking up, and I find it FASCINATING.
And I kinda want Jake and Cassie to get together for a little while, being that Adam is clearly not getting over Diana anytime soon.
Mom continues with, "This show has too much sex now."
Again, I have to disagree. The sex is sexy and WHOA, a mind waker, that's for sure. At the risk of sounding like a total creeptastic pervert, I love watching Diana and Adam get it on. I think there's a pretty great chemistry there, where as the Cassie that was cast I can't see having that same... umph, when the sexy times start cropping up.
ANYWAYS, Cassie & Co. decide to head to Henry's, Faye's grandfather, lake house in search of her grandmother. When they arrive there, they come in contact with Jane's scarf only but no Jane. Soon after Cassie receives a text saying that Jane is already on her way home, leaving Cassie puzzled and everyone else stranded there due to conveniently bad weather.
As soon as Faye steps foot on the property, she begins hearing eerie child's laughter, and continues to see FREAKY apparitions, leading her to a shocking and very sad discovery by the end of the episode!
I admit, my excitement for The Vampire Diaries has grown to tenfold for The Secret Circle. I love TV show dances, and next week's homecoming episode is no exception. And is it just me, or does it seem like Jake is developing a bit of a crush on Cassie? *waggles eyebrows* Next week's episode is sure to be DA BOMB.
BUT, WTF IS UP WITH CW AND THEIR MID-SEASON FINALES?!! :K
