You’ll want to read this review of The Vampire Diaries “Break on Through” so you can let us know if you cared more about the Bonnie Bennett (Katerina Graham) storyline than we did.
The Curious Case of Abby Bennet
Given that Bonnie has been absent for so much of The Vampire Diaries season 3, it’s hard to care about or or her extended family. (Especially an unsympathetic parent.) Even though the show made a point to show why being turned into a vampire was so especially hard for a witch who is usually able to connect with living plants and the earth (and is now all about death) I didn’t feel connected to this storyline at all. The only good that came from it was in seeing brief moments of Elena/Bonnie and then how Caroline talked to Abby about being a parent, and we remembered how much she misses her Dad.
Because Abby choose to left, she sucks even more than before. Scoff, scoff, scoff.
The Price of the Ring
Alaric is having troubles with this ring deal. I wouldn’t trust to be alone in a room with him. As Rumpelstiltskin says on Once Upon a Time, magic always comes with a price. I’m interested to see how Jeremy will later be implicated into this all. (Because you KNOW that is coming!)
Sage and Rebekah vs Damon
Cassidy Freeman kind of looks like that actress who played Starbuck on Battlestar Gallactica…Katee Sackhoff, there we go. I think they look very similar. What do you think? Anyway, Sage is a badass.
I had thought it was sad that Rebekah was so easily getting played. I mean, she’s an original and she’s acting like a teenager. Sage was sexist (but appropriate) in saying Rebekah was a girl who could be manipulated through her feelings for Damon. I’m not sure how long Rebekah and Sage were working together, but I hope it was from early on. Othewise, Rebekah is really losing her edge and becoming a version of Caroline Forbes season 1.
As for that sexy dancing time, that was a much better prelude to a threesome (which then didn’t happen) than Gossip Girl ever gave us.
