The Vampire Diaries 4×07: Inspire, desire, sired and sparks (a lot of sparks!)

The Vampire Diaries 4x07: My Brother's Keeper

The Vampire Diaries 4×07: My Brother’s Keeper

Yes, I know this episode about Delena, but look at Klaroline! They totally stole Delena’s spotlight with their first date.

1. What just happened?!
It’s time to choose a new Miss Mystic Falls. The reigning Miss, Caroline, is busy orchestrating the whole event when Klaus pops up to ask her out on her date. Caroline resist, but when he points out her recent break up with Tyler, it would be nice to have someone around. The date goes surprisingly well! Stefan is almost relapsing after his recent break up with Elena. So he is focusing on growing Jeremy’s mark. The only consequence is that Jeremy’s urge to kill vampires grows at the same time. A big problem if your sister is one and Elena almost gets killed. But Matt saves the day (and even moves in with Jeremy after Elena moved out to join the Salvatores)! April Young gets the pity vote and wins the pageant. Turns out that Hayley and Professor Shane also have a shady plan together. After Stefan left the Salvatore mansion, Damon and Elena – who have been staring at each other all day – dance and hook up. Almost at the same time Caroline realizes during a conversation with Stefan that Elena is sired to Damon. OMG! (and then the Delena moment was ruined! Damn, that bounded by blood thing…)

2. What was the most memorable quote or dialog this episode?
Had Damon a brilliant quote this week? I just can’t remember after watching all these Klaroline gifs on Tumblr. Klaus asks to Caroline “How am I doing?” and Caroline answers: “You’re… Perfect. Just so beyond annoying, I can’t even look at you.” with a smile!

Plus they totally looked like a married couple when he calmed her down (after she went ballistics while talking to Elena): “Easy, love. You’re making a scene.”

And to finish with a nice quote, Klaus talking about being human (A true gentleman never forgets to answer a question of a lady): “I never answered your question, if I’d ever thought about being human. Once. I was on a track in the andes, and a hummingbird flew up to me and just hovered there staring at me. Its tiny heart was pattering like a machine gun… And I thought, ‘what a thing, you know, to have to work that hard every day just to stay alive, to be constantly on the verge of death, and how satisfying every day must be that it survived…’ And that was the only time I thought about being human.” 

Oops, almost forgot al those “spire” words! Here it is (of course by Klaus): “‘When I am chosen, I intend to redefine excellence’… Now, I’m really enjoying your use of ‘when’ here. It’s very confident. Mm-hmm. ‘And above all, I promise to aspire, inspire, and perspire.’ Obviously, we found a shortage of words ending in ‘spire.'”

3. Cuteness vs. Useless
+ The longing looks between Damon and Elena: great job! As a viewer you totally had a flashback to their first dance. Nice that they danced again in the final scenes of the episode.
+ Did we ever saw Klaus less evil than this?! That was a real date and Caroline was certainly enjoying his company. Is their hope for Klaroline? Probably not (after we saw what happened with Delena), but a shipper can dream! PS: Dear writers, please let them exchange a tiny little kiss. Pretty please! It was in the stills, but not on the show this week although I can agree that it would have been too soon at the moment.
+/- I’m having mixed feelings about Jeremy’s storyline. If we are talking about a guy who can’t catch a break… Thankfully the only human left (Matt) stepped up to save our newborn hunter.
– Why does Hayley has to be a traitor?! Stupid, stupid, stupid. Didn’t like that twist at all. And Tyler is still trusting her, because he was to busy being jealous about Klaroline. Also Hayley was dressed like a hooker, not someone who is attending an elegant town party.
– Why can’t they give Delena a break?! They just ruined their connection. I hope they unsire her quickly and make her choose Damon (for a few episode) out of her own free will. Stefan and Elena look very done these days.

4. Rate it! (on a scale from 0 to 10)
I think this episode deserves a 9. The Vampire Diaries is so much more than just one love triangle and I think the writers should be praised for writing such interesting storylines for multiple characters (besides the core three). Just keep up the good work! (And I wouldn’t mind another Miss Mystic Falls episode next season!)

What are your thoughts on Klaroline and Elena’s sire bond to Damon?
