The werewolves are annoying.They think they’re powerful but they’re not,snap their neck and they would be dead.Not the best episode but still good.

This is a third episode in a row that I didn’t like. One big chaos, multiple “shocking” moments and “twists” that have shallow or questionable background and mainly I have seen it multiple times on TVD or TO. Just because these things worked for other characters it doesn’t mean it would work again and again with different characters (ehm, for example they can’t just clone Delena’s success by copying their moments and expect the same result – and definitely not with Elijah/Hayley, it’s ridiculous). I still don’t like the werewolves, none of them has a charisma, I just don’t care enough about any of their characters to be interested in what happens to them or their history, so Oliver’s betrayal -whatever.

With Father Kieran it’s also the same problem they did again and again (with Alaric, Katherine…) – they dragged it so long that I stopped caring if he’s alive or dies. Him, Cami, Marcel, Klaus – they’re all great actors but the flow and cadence was wrong and the scenario always the same. Not to mention the shortness and brevity of the scenes never let us really FEEL something where it should have an impact (lasting more than 20 seconds for the rest of the scene).

First half of the season was fantastic, now I have a feeling they’re desperately trying to use all the TVD tricks (that stopped working some time ago) and while there are still some … solid episodes – the quality was overcome by quantity (multiple new characters and relationships with no build up). Sad. :(
