Andy’s ‘Vampire Diaries’ Recap: Tyler’s Torture Like ‘The Passion Of The Werewolf!’

Plus, there was a whole lot of cheating going down Dec. 9 in Mystic Falls — including Bonnie & Luka’s second supernatural hookup.

But we’ll get to those dirty cheaters later. First, we need to talk about the star of this week’s episode: Tyler Lockwood (Michael Trevino.) Watching his first transformation into a werewolf — one I’m sure we’ll all grow to find cuddly — was the most horrific thing I’ve ever seen on primetime. And I’ve seen Kate Plus 8. The cracking bones, the bloodcurdling screams. I could barely keep my eyes open. Fortunately, Tyler had his new lady friend Caroline (Candice Accola) to assist him. Sorry, Matt (Zach Roerig), it looks like you’ll remain the saddest boy in Mystic Falls for another week.

Now, about those cheaters: I know Bonnie (Katerina Graham) and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) aren’t YET a couple, so she’s free to go about her lady business. But watching her get her magical jollies on with Luka (Bryton James) just feels wrong. All that closeness with the enemy is distracting her from her Knight in Hot Topic Armor, Jeremy. Eyes on the prize, Bon!

And speaking of cheaters (who didn’t technically cheat at all), I totally called it last week that Katherine (Nina Dobrev) and Stefan’s (Paul Wesley) naked romp in the tomb was all a dream. As I deduced, it was just another fantasy planted in Stefan’s head by his psychotic ex. And as soon as Stefan got out of the tomb — thanks to everyone’s greatest fear-turned-BFF, Elijah — he ran straight to Elena’s open arms and beating heart.

i HATED this episode.
sorry,but that was really annoying !!!
i mean:
-damon and rose ? are you serious?? i like them as friends not as lovers ! and they don’t even love each other!
-just ONE delena scene ! he was supposed to personally protect her!!! not with a cheesy spell that the witch did to stuck her inside the house! and the spell didn’t even worked !elijah got invited in
-elena and stefan together again ? how long were they single ?4 episodes ? what a record!
-when tyler was turning and caroline was there hugging him , i was like :”omg,run ! don’t you see tha h’es gonna bite you??” but he didn’t and that’s great because i love the “vampire barbie”
-the cliffhanger was not good at all, i mean il like rose but i don’t care if she dies!sorry rose !

all of that to say that that’s the worst episode they ever did!!!!!

Great episode. Loved the wolf part of the show. Elijah is such a badass. Bring back Damon from season 1. Hate the new Damon. His puppy love for Elena is such a YAWN. Bring back Damon the manwhoring killer we love. Damon is at the top of his game when he is using ALOT of women.

BEST EPSIODE OF SEASON 2. Tyler are fanastic, can’t wait to see more of the werewolf part of the show and the new werewolf Jules. Loved this episode. The thing that I really like was for the first time it wasn’t the Damon show. I like Damon it’s just getting so boring him chasing Elena and acting like a whimpy one liner fool. Damon is a far more interesting character when he sleeps with different women and kills just because he wants to. Loved this episode.

Michael Trevino was awesome! I love Tyler and Caroline together. But sooner or later Tyler’s gonna find out that Caroline has been lying to him about her being the only vampire in Town…and the only one to know about him being a wolf. But especially about Mason being killed by Damon!
I really like the idea of a female werewolf, I think she’ll try to separate Tyler and Caroline, maybe being the one who tells Tyler the truth! But if there is something going on between Caroline and Tyler, something romantic I mean, of course there will be much more to see! I just love them together, way better that Caroline/Matt!
I was pleased to see someone frighten Katherine so much… and I loved how finally Stef and Elena/ Damon and Rose ended up cuddling… I really hope Rose doesn’t die, I like her a lot. And I think Damon does too. <3
