Katherine rejoins the game, while Stefan and Damon get themselves in trouble

Oh, Nina Dobrev, we hope you enjoyed the normal workload (and trips to that lake house the cast rented together for the summer), because with Katherine teaming up with Damon at the end of this episode, we know we're about to see a lot more of you. And we're not complaining. Imagine how juicy this will be with Katherine (still hopefully) scheming as we learn more about the Originals and why Klaus is afraid of the mysterious vampire hunter Michael (future recurring guest star Sebastian Roche). How many loose cannons can we have firing at once?

Let's dig in: I love that the show made time for something practical like Rebekah needing to shop for clothes since she hadn't changed since the '20s. As Klaus and Stefan sipped champagne, Rebekah lamented how little clothing women wear today. I can't wait to hear what Rebekah says when she watches The Secret Circle and sees those necklines. I'd make her watch Burn Notice, too, for Fiona's wardrobe, but also because I think she'd get a kick out of her always wanting to blow stuff up. Before I spend any more time programming the DVR of a fictional character.  Read More >>

At first I was like "what the heck! This is not vampire diaries!" Then I liked the differences because its like a new journey to follow Elena through, but last night with the voodoo and the mention of a 'hunter'(is that supposed to be Meredith) I feel like this is going TOO far from L.J.'s amazing book. If that is where they are taking Phantom they are more messed up then I thought. I wish L.J had control of the show and her books! The only reason I watch it is to support L.J but is it really supporting L.J? I wish I knew how L.J felt about the shows. How do you all feel?

She simply does not watch these shows. As you've stated, if LJ had any say in the matter then perhaps she'll watch but she was never consulted. It's truly shame things turned out the way it did, too many lost opportunities I think. However, there are certain segments of Lisa's fan base that do like both(book & TV) so Lisa has graciously allowed me to host all news items here. I've never watched it myself but is it really that different??

Thank you SO much for your input!!!!! It really is THAT different, the only similarity is the names and I HATE how they are making Stefan this awful monster I feel like L.J wouldn't appreciate it. So watching it last I felt like I was betraying her! And thats the LAST thing I want after she has had so much betrayal. I think these shows are one reason they got the ghost writer (to reach the tv fans)and I do not want to support that. So thank you for telling me L.J dont watch it I will be following her footsteps.
