Season 3 Episode 11 "Our Town"

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 12, 2012, 10:11 PM



Spoiler Warning!!!


:bulletred: Surely I didn't expect the tension to be gone.  I mean, it's TVD.  Of course there's still going to be tension.  But the scene where Damon was saying goodnight to Elena--again--on her front porch, I almost couldn't handle it!  I love what he said, though.  "It is right.  Just not right now."  I completely agree.
:bulletred: I wasn't convinced by Stefan's I-don't-care-about-anybody phase.  I thought he was legitimately ticked off, but he was putting up a front for Damon, Elena, Bonnie, etc.  But when he nearly drove Elena off of Whickery Bridge, he officially had me convinced.  All that matters to him is getting revenge on Klaus.  I wanted Elena to use her new, practiced kung-fu powers of Stefan for scaring her like that.  I can't believe he would do that...  Damon's right.  He truly became the worse villain.  Or is it the better villain?  And, like Damon... I'm impressed.  That scene in general was incredible.  Nina's acting!
:bulletred: Alaric and Meredith.  It's too soon!  I still love Jenna!  We need to get to know her before he pounces...  Okay, okay, I'm glad he's bounced back and that he's happy...ish.  I'm glad he's not moping and that he and Damon are rebuilding their bromance.  What do y'all think of Meredith, anyhow?  What about her ex, Brian (perhaps Bryan, I didn't check the credits).  I don't think it was Alaric or Meredith, but what's your opinion?
:bulletred: I half expected Elena to just jump off the bridge both times she was on it.  Only half.  I really believe she's going to become a vampire at some point, and I don't expect it to be when we think it'll happen.  When she was saying goodbye to the girl she used to be on the bridge, I was almost anxious for her to.
:bulletred: Bonnie had a point about Elena controlling Jeremy's life.  He has a right to make his own decisions.  I'm a strong believer in free agency, and I don't think it's right what Elena and Damon did, despite the fact that it was in efforts to save Jeremy's life.  For once, I agree with Bonnie.
:bulletred: Caroline's birthday!  After all, isn't this episode supposed to be about Caroline?  I thought the funeral idea was weird, but it turned out to be kind-of-ish cute.  But only because it made Caroline happier.  How would you like to be stuck as an eternal 17-year-old?
:bulletred: I feel like much of the point of this episode was to make us like Klaus.  I have to admit that it started to work on me.  I do have a soft spot for him, but no matter how sweet he is to Caroline, or how understanding he is to the Council, I cannot forget the fact that he killed Jenna.  He is responsible for a lot of evil that has happened on this show, and I am having a really hard time forgiving him.
:bulletred: I was shocked that Tyler bit Caroline, and I think he was, too.  Do you think he was forced to, or did it just happen?  Oh, my heart aches for Tyler and Caroline.  I wouldn't be surprised if he skipped town for a while, too.
:bulletred: Ah, the return of Matt's usefulness.  We've missed you, purpose.
:bulletred: I don't know about you guys, but all of my sympathy for Stefan melted away on that bridge.  I'm sure that was the writers' intent--and for me, it worked.

Now, my dearest Deviaries, please tell me your thoughts. :) Have you any questions for me?  Any suggestions for how I should write these blogs?  Please.  I open the leavees.

Always,
Krista

Great journal! :) I loved the latest episode! :) but i have no idea why Klaus was being so nice to Caroline at the end! ...It doesn't make much sense to me. It was almost as if he liked her, and I just can't believe that all of a sudden Kluas would just take an interest in her... and that bracelet!! :o wow!
I agree its to get us to like Klaus more, and I do... But it doesnt make sense for his character I think. It's been bothering me! :D cant wait for the text episode! X)

Being a writer and a VD obsessor, I've decided to start blogging on the episodes. Unfortunately, I'm not a computer wiz, so I didn't know where to make my blog. My friend suggested I try tumblr, so I've posted my blog over "Our Town" there, but tumblr just doesn't seem like the right place for the kind of work I'm trying to present. Sorry, I'm babbling. Anyway, I'd love it if people could check out my view on the episode here: [link] And I'd also love it if anyone could give me a more appropriate place to blog.

(And I'm sorry, I'm not trying to be rude and put myself in the spotlight here, I'd just like some fellow VD viewers to share their ideas and opinions with me. If this comment seems offensive in any way, Admins, feel free to remove the comment!)

Thank you in advance! Stay fang-tastic!

Okay so i'm going to keep this simple... Does anyone else think about the coffin that doesn't open? I really think it's going to be the first witch! you know Klaus and Rebekah's mother, i mean it's the only explenation and in bonnies dream in the last episode it was klaus with the witch Necklace!!
By the way i just loved Klause in this episode and i think he really did feel guilty about making Tylor bite caroline on her birthday :D

I honestly feel bad for Klaus....what he did for Caroline really was fantastic (one of my favorite scenes in all of TVD)
And Stefan driving Elena off the cliff ...Wow is really all i can say. i'm not sure if this is progress for stelena or the end
that scene was also very very sad. this entire episode was sad Jeremy Elena and mats scene Stefan and Elena scene Klaus and Caroline so many sad scenes :(
Alaric wth...its been like a 3 months since Jenna Way to soon to be flirting with Meredith...
And last but not least Damon and Elena's porch scene....i'm sorry too say this but it's making me angry i love Elena and Stefan...and all these scene's with Damon and Elena are starting to make me angry...its romantic and sweet but i cant forget the first season :( i will forever be Stelana :(

I think it's the end for Stelena.... for now. But I completely see your point. I've been pro Stefan and Elena the whole time, but I've also been pro Damon and Elena the whole time. I feel like Elena and Stefan will end up together in the end, but I also feel like Damon deserves some love, too, after all he does... If Stefan and Elena did end up together in the very very end, do you think it would be okay, then, for Damon to have her at least for a little while?

I still have sympathy for him. My friend and I disagree, but I totally understand what he's doing. Even though she said he didn't, he truely did lose Elena. Even if he had come back to her after gaining his freedom, she never would've thought about him the same way after seeing that side of him. He only has one thing to live for, and that's revenge. If you only have one thing to live for, you go for it. Hey, he wasn't going to flat out kill her. There was a method for turning her. If Niklaus ever saw her as a vampire, he'd have to bask in the pain of losing his battle with Stefan. Stefan IS the better villain, and you have to be in his situation. Villain's don't play by rules, so you have to be able to play them at their own ruleless game. If you don't and you slip up by showing ANY weakness for ONE second, they have you under their control. If Niklaus falls for Caroline, he's lost this war. That's something for Stefan to use against him. This is lost cause for Niklaus, Stefan will easily crush him. Stefan's proven his point that Damon and Elena aren't much to him anymore (or so he's making Niklaus believe), so Niklaus has no cards to play against him.
As for the Niklaus/Caroline thing... Bull crap. My friend says he's redeemed himself in her eyes, but I think it's a way to somehow get at Stefan. Caroline means nothing to him. Stefan will think she DOES mean something and he's going to do something (hurt her, maybe?) to her to get to Niklaus. Unfortunately, all it would do is piss Elena off and make her hate Stefan.
Personally, this vendetta is all I'm concerned about. To me, both of our "villains" can win this war. They each have certain things against each other.

You make a few really great points. About Caroline, definitely. I'm still having a hard time believe what Stefan did to Elena, though. Your argument for him definitely helps me get into his head, however. Thank you, very much. :)

This might make me sound like a crazy loser, but the reason I connect with him is ACTUALLY because of a Vampire Diaries roleplay I have with a friend. My character, Azile, is married to Damon but went ripper after they broke up for the third time. She felt like she had nothing left, and so I'm like "Dude, okay, Stefan is in the right here. NOTHING he's done has been wrong."

This episode was amazing! When he kidnapped Elena I started freaking out! I'm so glad he didn't kill/turn her. When she said "You had me" my heart broke. It was such a sad scene. I can't believe he would do that. I think I'm gonna start shipping Klaus/Caroline. That scene was so sweet, but I think he might be using her for some big evil plan. I mean he's Klaus. But.... Klaroline anyone?

This episode was great! It was very sad that Stefan turned into a guy that he once would have hated....oh the irony. I understand why Stefan wants to get revenge...but is it really worth it when he's destroying the thing he once longed for, that Klaus took away from him (Elena)?

I loved that episode, but on Whickery Bridge I saw a little bit of a caring Stefan. And I'm all for him becoming good again and then getting back together.
For Meredith, I don't want Alaric to move on so quickly, even if he did end up with her in the books.
As for Jeremy, I probably would've done the same thing to my little brother.
I totally thought that Elena was prepared to become a vampire when she said good by to that little girl she used to be. I really want her to become one as well.
I love Caroline and Tyler together and I thought it was really sweet the way he stood up to Klaus but I was really disappointed when he bit her. I thought he'd changed.
Can't wait for the next episode!

Yes. Alaric and Meredith are moving very quickly.

I was so sad he bit her, too. :(

Ahhh I loved the porch scene ;D Elena should just give in a kiss him :D do them both favours.

Tyler biting Caroline, I think he was forced because he didn't seem all concerned. She told him to go, he went. Very concernful of him.

Meredith seems a bitch, from looking at the promo for the next episode she does something to Damon. I think she was the one who killed that 'prom high school' person. Don't go there Alaric!

Hard time forgiving Klaus? He's basically screwed everyones life, I would never forgive him! I think he is getting slightly softer though, with Caroline and all.

Stefan is going over the rails, especially with Elena. But this is pushing Elena further away from Stefan and closer to Damon ;D

I think Jeremey is pretending to be compelled, I just have this weird feeling :B

:iconwordpainter81:
wordpainter81 Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2012  Professional Photographer
But why would he legitimately feel for Caroline after ordering Tyler to bite her? I don't think he really cares about her.

"You really think that low of me?" "Yes." Yes, I do, too, Klaus.

Ha... over the rails. Sorry. Irony...

Oooh, pretending to be compelled. Idiot--you'd think he'd be drinking vervain by now. I know I would be.

Well, I don't hate Stefan, but I'm most definitely not a current fan of his. :/ He needs to get over his revenge. I think he's just feeling so vehemently agains Klaus because he's dreading the day he has to sit down and start feeling with his hurt and guilt.

Ok, that scene between Elena and Damon on the porch? Totally made my heart melt. They are so adorable together.

Stefan is totally off the reservation now. Isn't he still compelled to have his humanity turned off though? I mean, he was given his freedom, but was he ever given permission to flip the switch again?

I think Meredith's psycho. She probably is the one who staked the dude. Her or a hybrid gone rogue or somethig.

I think "You're free" was meant to be him getting his emotions back. Furthermore, he's been feeling a heck of a lot of rage. I think that comes with the emotions thing.

Yeah. Her staked BF is really starting to annoy me.

Okay, first thing's first: When I was watching Elena and Damon on the porch after that horrid ordeal with Stefan, maybe it was the fangirl in me, but I thought Elena said--"Will you kiss me again?" instead of, "You can't kiss me again." And I'm thinking 'OMGGGGG-- Vulnerable Elena is vulnerable! You kiss her Damon, and you kiss her goooood!' Buuut, of course that was merely wishful thinking on my part. hahaha! ( Though it would have made a hell of a lot of since--Girl almost killed by her ex! LOL )

And speaking of that, my heart was in my chest during that entire scene. And I couldn't help but picture the books, and how the bridge scene played out there. I really thought she was going to become a vampire! I want this to happen so badly you have no idea. ( Though the whole idea of it being Stefans fault is way to wrong. ) He is the one who saved her life on that bridge, and he is now willing to take it away. He needs to get over his anger at Klaus and move on. Try and make amends. ( Though, I like him being bad ass Stefan, because it forces Elene to think about what he has become. And brings her closer and closer to Damon. :) )

I still ship Caroline with Tyler, though I now am beginning to ship her with Klaus. ( He was waaay to sweet to her and I loved it! And that b-day present! ) Though, I still believe he is up to something. He's Klaus after all. Anyway, Tyler had to bite her--even though he said he wouldn't. Klaus is his SIRE! Which means they are linked forever--a bond. I'll admit, I truly didn't believe he was going to bite her. But, it makes since. I still feel bad for him, almost accidentaly killing the girl he loves.

Yeeesssss. I was thinking of the books, too. I think that's what finally convinced me it actually might happen--he really might kill her--because that's how she died in the books. Holy cow, I was on the edge of my seat.

My question for you is, why would Klaus legitimately feel for Caroline when he asked Tyler to bite her in the first place? That's what I don't understand.

I totally love this bad-ass Stefan. Almost killing Elena. I was like, "HOLY SHIT! DO IT!" I want her as a vampire.

And although I do like this bad-ass Stefan, I miss bad-ass Damon. He's gotten sufficiently wimpier. Why isn't he the one challenging Klaus? I get that he loves Elena (I totally ship them.) but c'mon! I miss season one Damon!...And his haircut!

Did anyone else all of a sudden fall in love with the idea of Klaus and Caroline being a thing when he was talking to her? I'm the only one?...Awkward.

I'm sick of Tyler. He was nice when Caroline was with Matt and when Tyler was a werewolf. You had sympathy for him because, oh he has to go through all this pain, and oh he loves Caroline, but oh, she loves Matt, but oh...does she? Now he's a sired annoying douchebag and I want Damon or Stefan to stake 'im.

Have I mentioned that I love Stefan?...AND MISS BAD-ASS DAMON!
