The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, or so they say, and when it comes to Esther Mikaelson, well, she's the craziest tree in the bunch. I knew that the Original Witch had ulterior motives for forgiving her son Klaus, but I never thought that she would go that far.
It was like a scene out of Julius Caesar, watching Klaus fall at the hands of those he thought he could trust most: his family. It was an incredible scene, watching each Original inflict their own sense of revenge on their hybrid brother.
"The Ties That Bind" was an emotional roller coaster of an episode, and it kind of made me fall in love with Stefan again. For the first time in weeks, he left his poker face at the door, and we got to see a glimpse of the old Stefan. It was a welcome return.
In an effort to prove a point to Klaus, Stefan makes it his mission to try to kill all of Klaus' hybrids, one by one, until he makes them leave town. You see, in order to win this psycho chess match, "you have to be the better villain."

I invite you and every other girl under the age of 17 to rejoice with me that after many, many weeks on holiday hiatus, my current favorite primetime TV bad boy Damon Salvatore is back tonight.
I love The Vampire Diaries. I don't just like it or even like like it, I full on 'I will have your hybrid babies' love it. Seriously, I haven't felt this way about a show since Veronica Mars (season one).
In the past couple of years there has been an increase of supernatural and mystical themes in television, and the viewers (including myself) are eating it up at an astronomical rate.
Vampires may be unreal, but they serve as apt stand-ins for human beings, experiencing the same highs and lows that come with loving, losing and surviving.
Powered by the strength of ABC's Revenge and The CW's Ringer, primetime serials are enjoying a surge of renewed popularity.
American Horror Story and The Walking Dead serve up suffocating horror with an intensity so unrelenting that it goes beyond emotional connection to psychological interactivity.
The Walking Dead is the best example in recent memory of the incredible divide between our cultural perception of violence vs. sex and language.
Dear bloggers: they tell you that success on the Internet is all about grabbing eyeballs, but nobody tells you how to get those eyeballs.
There's no reason why they can't find talented 18- to 20-year-old actors to play angst-ridden roles. It would make the stories that much more credible as the actors age in the course of the series length.
As we rejoin the remaining eight, Gretchen shares that not having Michael D there makes it feel more like a competition, as he was well-liked.
