Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 23 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

As Season 4 of The Vampire Diaries comes to a close, the episode wanted us to reflect, think on previous memories, and hope for the best as a seemingly new chapter beings in the Salvatore Saga. But what really happened were a couple of cheap pops, a bunch of 'resolutions' if you can call them that, and a REALLY weak cliffhanger for the fifth season.

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 22 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

We got a bunch of old faces returning, some dope twists, and true confusion on how the hell they're going to end this season. All in all, I guess it was a pretty good episode.

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 21 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

"She's Come Undone" starts off in a dream sequence and kind of remains that way for the entire episode. After last week's Klaus diversion, we're kind of stuck in the rut of catching up on some melodrama in order for the actual plot line to move forward with the final two episodes of the season.

Apr 26, 2013

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 20 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

The highly anticipated backdoor pilot for Klaus' spin-off, The Originals, has arrived. While it's not an outright brand new show, the idea of adjusting some major characters away from Mystic Falls to take over New Orleans has potential for at least one entertaining half-season of television.

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 19 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

While the tuxedos were out and the prom dresses were way too nice for a bunch of high school seniors (immortal or not), there's some serious endgame magic going on, and I'm ready for the end of this season.

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 18 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

While "American Gothic" made sure that the plot forced itself back to Mystic Falls, it brought some old characters back around just in time for The Originals spinoff launch and the grand finale where someone is obviously going to wind up taking the cure.

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 16 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

After a brief hiatus, the insanity that encompasses Mystic Falls has returned. While there was a brief cheer leading interlude within the episode, the title 'Bring It On' feels more towards the setup for the endgame of this season rather than a reference to arguably one of the greatest cheer leading movies ever.

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 15 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

It's fair game in modern television to have a 'pull-at-the-heartstrings' episode. While not everything may live up to the standard that we nerds know as Buffy's 'The Body' episode, every time a family member of the main character dies, it's usually done with fanfare. This is not what happened on The Vampire Diaries.

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 13 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

It looks like we've got a two part massacre on our hands on TVD. Sure, the episode is called 'Into The Wild' but this one was way over the drama setup for next week, when hopefully some more plot happens.

Feb 1, 2013

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 12 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

A major character death, a villain returns, an '80s tribute (Breakfast Club for life) and it seems like we're finally leaving Mystic Falls after four years of that boring town and going on a road trip! For the mid-way point of the season, "A View To Kill" has been on par if not better than the recent episodes of TVD by keeping the plot going and the audience on its toes.

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 11 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

Even though this started out as what a dude thinks about such a girly show, I have to admit, I'm pretty much fully committed/on board with The Vampire Diaries right now. There was like 1% melodrama (Because Elena is pointless!), and 99% legit plot in this episode.

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 10 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

While Rebekah played the role of the evil principal making the favorite students sit in detention on a Saturday, the premise behind "After School Special" had the perfect mix of melodrama and plot development, which frankly, after a month's hiatus, is all I could have asked for from The Vampire Diaries.

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 9 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

It's Christmas in Mystic Falls. Besides Tyler's mom getting totally wasted outdoors, there's a lot happening in terms of melodrama and over-reaction city for each of the characters that we're so invested in.

Dec 7, 2012

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 8 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

Most of the time when The Vampire Diaries does a type of flashback/historical episodes, they're pretty awesome. In the case of "We'll Always Have Bourbon Street," I feel like we were given a lot of filler and not enough of, anything. Sure we actually left Mystic Falls for the worst substitute of New Orleans I've ever seen and there was even some visits to vamp pound town in the very beginning, but that doesn't mean it's a winner of an episode people. Let's discuss the reasons why.

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 7 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

Another season of The Vampire Diaries, another Miss Mystic Falls pageant gone horribly wrong. You would think that after awhile, someone would catch on. But it seems like Ms. Lockwood is too drunk to really care about the outcome of a bunch of supernatural and hormonal high schoolers in her backyard.

My overall conclusion? I'm stoked that for the first time in four years since TVD's been on, different people will be banging each other. Let's get to the recap!

Recap: The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 5 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

Let's get this out of the way before the real recap: Way to be generic, CW. Even though we knew Connor The Vampire Hunter (I see you, Buffy!) couldn't make it that long into the season since, you know, there needed to be plot progression: WAY TO KILL THE BLACK GUY. (Okay. I just needed to get that out.)
