The Vampire Diaries: There Goes the Neighborhood
And the Vampire Diaries has finally redeemed itself! Great start to the episode with Pearl laying a giant beat-down on Damon and gouging out his eyes. Way to start with a bang! Not to mention the old house full of escaped scary pissed-off vampires from 1864 waiting to make good on the Salvatore brothers. Pearl is turning out to be Queen Vampire Nasty. She definitely means business. It’s kinda strange to see Damon, normally the ruthless bad-ass vampire being schooled by someone far worse.
The double date was a little weird but I guess they had to have some filler although it was pretty cool to see the four of them interacting together. Nice to see Stefan trying to make some friends outside of Elena.
Damon cougaring it up with Matt’s mother was another classic Damon moment. I loved Caroline’s comment after they got to Stefan’s house.
Caroline: This is much better than watching Damon visit Cougar-town.
Finally, way to go Jeremy! Slicing his hand open with Anna and letting her drink his blood. Took some guts – I liked seeing that a lot. Jeremy can be so wishy-washy sometimes so it was great to see him take charge. He also has a new look, like the sassy cuteness. I’m just not too sure about him wanting Anna to turn him. It was too predictable. So basically now we have a brother and a sister both fraternizing with vampires, and hiding the fact from each other.
Overall, not a bad episode at all. Enjoyed all the drama and the slowly building tension of Pearl’s endgame. Very interesting. Looking forward to next week’s episode. The Vampire Diaries airs on Thursdays at 8pm on the CW.

I finally watched this episode tonight online because it cut off last week. I have to say I am a bit disappointed that Pearl is as strong as Damon at the moment. While she is older shes been underground without blood for almost 150 years, hoping she might have just caught him by surprise? Not that she shouldn’t be just a bit to soon. I would think he had an edge at the moment given he’s been around fully loaded on blood, etc. She doesn’t even know what and ipad is :).
Jeremy is my favorite character after Damon. I think Damon’s little Jedi Mind trick did something to him that we don’t know yet. I also love the fact that if Jared Padelecki dropped out of Supernatural that he could fill in for him – he really looked like him tonight.Reply

I TOTALLY agree with you about Pearl. Yes, she’s older but come on, she’s been weak and starved and basically a corpse. Damon should have at least given her some run for her money even though it was nice to see him schooled.
