The CW has released the official synopsis for The Vampire Diaries, episode 5, “The Reckoning”. Senior Prank Night takes a grim turn, while Stefan falls deeper into his bloodlust.
A Senior Prank Night To Die For

  • Despite all that has happened, Caroline~Candice Accola is determined to see that Elena~Nina Dobrev, Bonnie~Kat Graham, Matt~Zach Roerig and Tyler~Michael Trevino all enjoy a traditional Senior Prank Night before the school year begins at Mystic Falls High School.
  • However, when uninvited guests show up, it doesn’t take long for the evening to take a deadly turn.
  • Damon~Ian Somerhalder convinces Jeremy~Steven R. McQueen that he can use his new connection to the other side to help find a way to defeat Klaus~Joseph Morgan.
  • Finally, Klaus deepens his hold on Stefan~Paul Wesley and uses him for increasingly violent and dangerous purposes.

    TVD is really short when a viewer FFs all of the deathly dull Elena/Stefan/Damon borefest to watch Caroline, Tyler, Matt, and Jeremy. In fact, I think it’s time to announce that Bonnie is going to stay with her Dad for the foreseeable future. More smug, supercilious witchcraft with whining about ancient witches detracts from the charm of the Secret Circle. Besides, TSC has everything that TVD has lost – KW, plot, mystery. TVD is all about Ian Sommerhalder and Nina Dobrev making sure that Damon and Elena are naked, wet, and otherwise sexual with each other.

    I totally disagree!  TVD is more than just Damon and Elena.  It’s about Stefan’s struggle with his inner demons, about relationships between the supernatural and their human friends and family.  Also, I see absolutely nothing wrong with a little naked Ian Somerhalder every now and then!

    Ok, I understand that you don’t like Bonnie but I beg to differ, she is a pivotal role in the vampire diaries series. Without her damon was unlikely to survive the werewolf bite from last season. And don’t forget that bonnie has every right to be whiney after damon tried to kill her  in the first season. If anything bonnie is the most accepting and helpful character of them all. Bring her back from holiday now TVD !!!!

    i totally disagree with the first post TVD is fast paced and exciting and it grabs your attention where as TSC lacks some of that, it seems to lack abit of excitement where as with TVD we can relate to the chracters as we know them more, i think that elena is really struggerling and denying her feelings for damon. I think that she loves damon  but she may just love stefan a little bit more. I hope that it all works out nicely for everyone but with this show you never know, but thats what makes it exciting.

    I think Klaus, Elijah and the originals are exciting. But I have to admit, the rest of the show is getting really boring. I loved Stefan/Elena the love story. I’d rather see Damon interact with other characters and get along more with his brother. The show needs to quit pushing this triangle in our faces. Where are Caroline’s vampire struggles? She’s drinking human blood and all she is IS HORNY? Come on. And why is Bonnie always missing in action? I’m so tired of all the men revolving around poor little Elena. It’s hard to root for her that way. I’d love to see the show mix it up. Maybe Katherine/Elijah. And Stefan realizes Katherine really did love him. Let’s put a real threat to Elena’s love life. And more Damon/Bonnie hate love relationship, how would Jeremy feel about it.LOL

    i absolutly agree with you about the originals being exiting, however i’m kind of a fan of the love triangle so long as it keeps damon in the picture. im a little tired of elena too, but damon likes her so i want him to get what he wants. he hasn’t been considered a real threat to elena and stefans relationship up til now, so im thinking FINALLY. i’d love to hear more about caroline. i didnt like her at first, shes really grown on me since she got over her obsession with herself. i love her relationship with tyler.as for bonnie, she just irritates me, not as much as before, but she is still one of my least favorite characters. stefan and kat getting together though… now THAT has potential, although i like the idea of elijah and kat too…

    well isnt that all we want out of TVD?;)

  • Bonnie

    I also disagree with the 1st comment, TVD is hardly all about Damon and Elena being naked and sexual, nor is it really even all about Damon and Elena at all. There is so many storylines and plots on TVD that all fit together and in my opinion each is as mysterious and exciting as ever!! That doesnt mean to say that i dont love DELENA!! Im just saying that i also LOVE all the other characters, especially the originals! I love how rebekah is klaus sister!! how is that not great mystery! So far season 3 has been far better than even i thought. :D
