This Means War
Wow. Um . . . holy crap! What? Wow. I’m still a little speechless, as you can tell. As I’ve said previously, what the hell just happened? I don’t really know. One thing I do know? The night belonged to the über talented and quite sexy, Joseph Morgan. He’s delightful, isn’t he? Give that man an Emmy, asap!
Yes. It was a night of twists and turns; surprises that knocked us right off our seats. Gah! It was fantastic. It was truly one of the best episodes of the season, maybe, even the series. It did require us to make use of our throwing chairs, pillows, etc, but we’ll get to that later. After last week’s cliffhanger, we knew little of what was to become of the residents of Mystic Falls. We transitioned into uncharted territory, finding ourselves face to face with a new enemy (somewhat). This week, we picked up right where we left off, only hours after Crazy Alaric’s transition into a vampire – a vampire-hating vampire. There was action left and right. Character death. Epic revelations. It was a damn good episode. How about we recap it, shall we? Take your time, you’re in for a fun ride. For the two of you who didn’t see last night’s all new episode, sit tight. This is a SPOILER ALERT!
An Ode to Alaric Saltzman: Hunter. Hunt. Take. Give. Care. Teach us your history on the days we actually come to class. Die. Live. Die. Drink until you blackout. Come back to life, again. Crazy. Psycho. Killer. Turn into another. Vampire. Original. Kill. Complete your mission. We wish you the best of luck. In fanfiction, you and Damon like to fu . . . Okay. That’s enough for now. What? I was going to say – Stop. Just, stop.
It’s true the initial moments of the episode play-out as a quasi-salute to the Alaric from days of old, but if we look closer we see something more; a declaration. A promise of war. Evil Alaric – that’s what I’m calling him now – will leave chaos and destruction in his wake. He will rid Mystic Falls of each and every supernatural creature – cleansing the world of vampires.
Yeah. He’s insane, but don’t hold that against him. Forced to die, again and again, that’s bound to change a man; especially, when you have a schizophrenic witch whispering in your ear. We should give him a break. Right, Caroline? Um . . . Caroline?
