The Vampire Diaries Rewatch -- By The Light Of The Moon

Updated on August 13, 2011

Is That All There Is

Needless to say, when the CW made it known there were skipping six episodes to finish up the season rewatch in time for the new season, I was not a happy camper. Some of those six episodes I hadn't seen. So I was spitting nails. Luckily, I found a site online and was able to download the episodes that were being skipped. So the rewatch continues.

Not being a Stefan and Katherine fan, and being a Damon/Katherine fan, this was the episode I was dreading to see, but at the same time I also wanted to see it, so I could have a accurate view of S/K and my belief that Katherine doesn't really love Stefan. So I came away from watching this episode somewhat shocked. I was expecting something more.

The big fake S/K make-out scene was a blink and you missed it type of thing, when I thought it would be on the same level as Damon and Katherine in The Return. Then when they had Stefan offer his challenge to Katherine to prove his love, it wasn't filled with any intensity or passion for either party. I was left wanting to warble, "Is That All There Is". And when Stefan left Katherine behind in the tomb, it was nowhere as intense as when Damon did the same. S/K were a pale version on every level of Damon and Katherine.

We also got treated to Tyler's first transformation into a werewolf. Maybe it's a terrible thing to admit, but I could care less. This show is called The Vampire Diaries not The Werewolf Diaries. I also don't see any chemistry between Caroline and Tyler, so I don't know what all the hoopla about them is. I still prefer Matt and Caroline and Matt in general to Tyler.

The other big story was Damon playing Taunt The Werewolf. Funniest moment was Damon going off to Alaric about Jules saying he was marked and wanted to know what the heck that meant. Me, too. What did she do? Pee on him or something?

I've seen some people online claiming Damon pushed Rose in the path of Jules to save himself. Another scene I was dreading as a Damon fan. But he did no such thing. It's always interesting how different people view things in a different way.

The end result is Damon managed to escape the fate of being bitten by a wolf, this time, thanks to Rose. But it was a fate he couldn't escape, forever. He only got a reprieve. It also leads us into the next episode in season two, The Descent, which was one of the best episodes of the entire season.
