“The Vampire Dairies Season Four Episode 2, “The Memorial” Bringing Up the Blood and Bringing Out the Hotness
“The Memorial” Bringing Up the Blood and Bringing Out the Hotness
By Tegan O’Rourke,
Elena drinking Damon’s blood in the Grille’s bathroom was emotional porn; hot, hot, hot.
The title of this episode should have been called “Blood, Blood, Blood,” since Elena tossed up every drop she was given. Can the doppelgänger only drink from the vein? This is going to make for some awkward moments with Stefan.
I thought both of the Salvatore Brothers were going to have an emotional breakdown when she fed on Matt at Pastor Young’s funeral. Matt will be a good midnight snack for her once in a while, and this will definitely put a wedge in her relationship with Stefan. I agree with Damon, he just needs to let her go full on vamp and get it over with. Not everyone is a blood aholic like him.
The funniest line of the episode was when Sheriff Forbes accused Damon of killing the council members and he replied, “If I was going to kill twelve people I wouldn’t blow them up. I would throw a dinner party.”
Tyler had quite a hard few days, first getting vervained and shot by new hunter Connor, then at the Pastor’s funeral getting shot by Connor again. I wonder if Caroline will give him some more of that grief sex he likes so much. I mean come on he took a bunch of bullets to protect his friends.
This Connor is a hot badass, so far no redeemable qualities except for his hotness. Hopefully the writers will give him a good back story like his wife or daughter was killed by vamps and that’s why he is such a ruthless hunter. We need a reason to care about him and see through his violence toward our cute vampire favorites like they did with Ric. He started out as a hunter and remained a hunter, but he was a hunter with a conscience and that’s why the episode concluded with pissed off Damon giving Ric a soliloquy at his grave.
Predictions: Damon is going back to his old ways of harassing Stefan. Stefan will not be able to handle Vampire Elena, I think she may have a dark side and Stefan isn’t going to like it. Klaus will find a way to stay in town after all fans love to hate him. Elena and Damon will have some more hot moments of blood drinking together and possibly some vamp sex. I keep hearing rumors of major deaths this season, I can’t imagine who and I don’t want to. However I am very excited about these new characters, especially Bad Ass Hunter Connor.
