I am so said about Alaric cause he was Damon best friend and drinking buddy. I cried for what happend to him. I wasn’t to upset that Elena turned into a vampire cause I fig it would have happend sooner or later but just not this fast. Kind of glad though cause she learned the truth of some things about what Damon didn’t want her to know cause he was trying to be the better man and protect his feelings cause he felt he didn’t deserve her but he so does I mean but what he did proves he does! He so deserves to get the girl this time! Elena needs to finally open her eyes and let her heart finally lead her to the right man that it belongs to and that man is Damon :)

I like TVD, and, of course, for me, the most shocky death was Elena’s. I didn’t expect that, especially I didn’t expect her to become a vampire. Anyway, looking forward to seein’ the next episode. :D

Shut it people! How about watching Sons of Anarchy, Game of Thrones, Mad Men, True Blood….series that are brilliantly written for a well educated audience…..not silly teens fretting over silly unintelligent commentary, whose terribly written story lines make our ears bleed…no wonder teens are so disrespectful and brooding all the time ith trash like Gossip Girls, 90210, Vampire Diaries,Teen Wolf,Pretty Little Liars….omg Becky!(lol)

Vampire Diaries and Twilight are totally different. The story lines are different. the only thing they have in common is that they both have vampires. The movie Dracula had vampires in it, how come you guys aren’t comparing that one to Twilight and TVD? Jackasses, we’re talking about two totally different shows and story lines. Stop comparing them.

Actually the vampire diaries is based on books that came out before the twilight books did so twilight is actually a bad version of the vampire diaries. The Twilight movies sucked and they are crap compared to the vampire diaries.

Twilight is a bad version of anything, so your argument is invalid.

Actuallty, the story of vampire diaries is based on books that came out many years ago! still I preffer Twilight, I think both are very good stories and I enjoy them. No matter how many people hate Twilight, the story has helped another vampire stories to actually be noticed!
