    Daddy Issues.

    Thursday, February 03 2011
    Jules abducts and tortures Caroline, John gets in everyone's faces and Tyler gets more confused.

    When Caroline walks out of her house, she's startled to find Tyler waiting for her. She awkwardly talks about their kiss and says they can't go there again. He begins interrogating her about his uncle and then explains that he knows Stefan and Damon killed him. When she admits that she's known all along, he throws her against the car and then storms off. He goes to see Jules and she tells him that it's natural for them to be enemies with vampires. She encourages him to leave with her for a new life. Jules goes out to the woods and meets with Brady. She tells him that she wants Tyler more than vengeance. He thinks they can have both. They make out.

    Damon gets out of the shower to watch the news about the recent killings. When he goes downstairs, his brother tells him about bringing John back. Stefan says that John has a way to keep Elena safe. They trade barbs about Damon's feelings for Rose and he threatens to get his own 'hero hairdo' to steal Stefan's thunder. After he saunters off, Caroline shows up to tell Stefan that Tyler knows about Mason. Stefan immediately runs off and breaks into the Lockwood mansion to confront Tyler. He tells him that vampires and werewolves can be friends and they don't have to disrupt their lives. Tyler's phone starts ringing so Stefan grabs it.

    Elena isn't happy to see John still at her house. He insists that he's only there to protect her. Alaric and Jenna wander in and are shocked to see him. Alaric takes off and Elena explains to Jenna that John is her biological father. He takes off and Damon shows up. She fills him in and they discuss John. He leaves to have a 'civil' conversation with her father.

    John talks to Carol at a memorial. She tells him that Damon is on the counsel now. Jeremy shows up and offers him the ring but John refuses to take it and Jeremy refuses to have lunch with him. Across the park, Dr. Martin stalks up to Bonnie and she confronts him over working for Elijah. Jeremy interrupts and takes her away.

    On the street, Matt runs into Caroline and hopes they can meet up later to clear up the weirdness between them. After he leaves, Jules shows up and sprays vervane in her face. As soon as Caroline recovers, Brady shoots her in the head. When she wakes up and pulls the bullet out, she notices she's locked in a cage in a trailer. Brady begins taunting her and shoots her again. Jules slips off to call Stefan with Caroline's phone and threatens to kill her if he doesn't bring them Tyler.

    Jenna and Alaric are at the pub. Her head is spinning about John, who instantly wanders in and asks to join them. Damon and Elena arrive. She begs him not to be stupid. Damon threatens John quietly but it's not very impressive. Damon mopes at the bar until Andi Starr is introduced to him. He blows her off and walks over to Elena. Stefan calls and fills them in on what's happening with Caroline. Damon wants to kill Tyler. John interrupts and Damon tells him to ground his daughter while he goes out. John lectures her about trusting Elijah.

    Stefan and Tyler soon show up in the woods to meet Jules and then Damon arrives, threatening to take her down. She whistles and a bunch of men with stakes and gasoline show up. Brady orders the men to make Damon suffer. As the fighting begins, Tyler goes into the trailer and finds Caroline. As he lets her out, Jules grabs her and holds a gun to her head. Brady is about to stake Stefan when all of the wolves suddenly begin screaming and twist up on the ground. Dr. Martin walks out and tells the vampires that he promised to keep them safe and they need to go. Stefan takes Caroline home and worries about her. She insists that she's okay. She goes upstairs to clean up her bullet wounds. Matt calls to ask if everything is alright. She claims she's with Bonnie, who just happens to be sitting five feet from him. When she gets off the phone, Tyler shows up and tells her he had no idea this would happen. She wishes he had helped her. She says that they aren't friends anymore and slams the door in his face. Meanwhile, John shows up at Damon's with tools to kill an original. He explains that they have to be stabbed with a dagger coated in ash from an ancient tree.

    At home, John startles Elena and she tells him again that she doesn't want him around. He hands her some jewels of her mother's. He knows that he's nothing to her but when she lost her parents, he lost his family too. All that he wants is to protect what's left. After he walks out, Stefan shows up and she runs to him and sobs. He goes back to see Caroline again and brings Elena and Bonnie with him so they can have a slumber party. Meanwhile, John goes down to the tombs to see Katherine. She wants out and he says he's already on it.

    Tyler goes out to the woods to see Jules and Brady. They assure him that he could have a better life as a werewolf somewhere else. Tyler tells them about the moonstone his uncle was looking for. Meanwhile, Damon is having a bath with Andi. He tells her that he's in love with a woman he can never have. Not having control makes him dangerous and he kills people. He hates having to keep himself together for this woman because it means not being who he is. They start making out and then he kills her.

    Cryptic commentary: Another brutal episode. Poor Caroline. What's even weirder is that seeing all the tension between her and Tyler was even more painful than seeing her get shot in the head repeatedly. Why do all the werewolves seem like they walked out of "Deliverance"? The John dynamic was good to see again and it was great to see more of Damon showing his bloodlust, though he certainly didn't do much during this week's big fight.

    These werewolves have some big ones. They know that the vamps have outside supernatural help and they are still sticking around. Wonder if they have any kind of supernatural help?? I am also curious to know exactly how powerful Dr. Martin really is?

    It was really nice to see Stephan arrange a sleep over with Caroline's friends. She really needed it and I don't think we have seen the girls together like that since when Bonnie was possessed by Emily back in season one.

    John is a fool! Sorry, but if that witch chopped off my fingers, there is no way I would be trying to help her get out of the tomb. So, does anyone else think that Isobel is out there looking for Klaus and setting a trap to kill him?
    Also, don't know why anyone would want to work with Katherine? Family doesn't mean anything to that witch!

    Forgot to mention that Caroline kicks Jule's ass big time!

    I definitely did not expect Dr. Martin to show up and save the day. For now it seems as if he is operating on home team until Elijah says otherwise.

    Poor Carolina can't catach a break... It seems like her relationship with Matt is one big misunderstanding or misstep after another. She got a lot of hurt put down on her but she came out swinging in the end. That door in the face that Tyler got was well deserved. After all that Caroline did for him, he stood there and did nothing to help his friends.

    I love Stefan more and more each episode. I love how he looks out for Caroline. What he did at the end, getting Caroline's friend together to keep her company after her ordeal spoke volume to the man he is. He and Caroline have a special kind of bond and it was nice seeing that in this epi.

    Damion is drowning in his sorrows. These senseless killings are starting to get tiresome. I like his groing bond with Stefan and it would be ridiculous to have his feelings for Elena to mess that up. Having said that, he had some funny one liners. Say what you want about him, he always manages to crack me up.

    It look like father John isn't being totally honest.

    it was a awesome episode.. first tyler is kissing caroline then he almost has her killed, he really needs to do some thinking of what side hes on or where does goes from here, does he leave with the pack? whom he doesnt know...

    Caroline i hate to see her lie to matt, but i know she has to, he will never love her, knowing shes a vampire, and would freak out first... so caroline cant win ...

    damon had a bath sexy scene.. love his room/bathroom very stylish. he going crazy cause he cant have elena, so i dont really blame him going on a killing spree.. But there is sexual tension.
    Still waiting on if damon will get his girl, cmon elena admit it u have feelings for damon.

    think thats it... til next thurs...

    It was nice to see elena, bonnie, caroline together as friends, i missed that too, since they been doing their own things ...

    You know an episode is going to be good when it starts off with Damon in the shower and ends with him in a bubble bath! Yummy HOTNESS!!!

    Okay, now onto to more serious business.

    Uncle John actually went up a couple notches in my book this episode. He reached out to Elena and gave her something of her mother's. No not Isobel's but Miranda's and that was sweet. I appreciated that he realizes that his brother and sister-in-law are Elena's parents in every sense of the word and he at least respects her feelings for them. He did reach out to help the brothers because in the end EVERYONE realizes that Elena's safety is the top priority. Then at the end.....hhhmmm. That's a stumper for me. What could Katherine/Isobel still have over John to make him help the Vamp that chopped his fingers off?! Or could it just be that...she chopped his fingers off, perhaps if he doesn't help what else might she chop off. Or they are all in cahoots to take down the Salvatore brothers and rid Elena's life of them. Last season Isobel wanted John to kill the boys and keep Elena from joining the world of Vampires.

    Caroline-I'm glad to see her stand up for herself to Tyler. I think she was actually too easy on him. I would have added a slap in the face with my hand rather than just a door slamming in it. Having the girls come take care of her was perfect. It brought tears to my eyes. Nothing comforts more than a good sleepover with your BFFs!

    Jules-I can't say anything I'm not saying anything at all.

    Tyler-at first I was disappointed, then I remembered Tyler is a d**k with a capital D. He always has been! Remember when Stefan first joined the football team and he hated the new guy getting attention? Remember how he treated Jeremy? Tyler is not a good guy...we were led astray and his true colors are back.

    Stefan-well, I'm still neutral. I like the guy but he's not my love of the show. He was actually involved in this episode and I enjoyed his scenes but I just don't feel his and Elena's relationship any more.

    Dr. Martin-Wasn't surprised that he showed up to help the brothers with the wolves. I actually thought that Elijah would show up to help but was grateful someone did. He is one powerful warlock and Bonnie shouldn't be so quick to burn bridges. He might be able to teach her a thing or two. Then she could have a few trick up her sleeve to throw back at them if needed down the line.

    Jeremy-Yeah!!! That boy is a cutie!! Wish he was on more!!

    Elena-hated the hair do, sort of reminded me of a chicken tail. She asks about Caroline but not about Damon? I get that Damon isn't that high up on her list but he risks his existence for her on weekly basis and she still can't have the common courtesy to ask if he's okay? They at least answered my question last week that they are sharing information with each other (ingesting vervain).

    Damon-I'm glad to see that he is still struggling with things. I kept waiting for him to use a quote from Gone with the Wind when Elena kept telling him to be the better man. "Frankly Elena, I don't give a damn!" about being the better man. Stop trying to change him! Love him for who he is and his weaknesses. I like Damon as a vampire not a wishy washy wanna be human. There are obviously things about being a vampire that can't be changed.

    Okay, there are a few of my thoughts. I may be back after I've slept and watched again. They mumble, I gasp and make side-bar comments so I always have to go back and watch again.

    You all have left some really good comments I cracked up @ "nat21". "These werewolves have some big ones", while watching that scene in the forest I was thinking the same thing talk about an unfair fight. I've already started the countdown clock on Jules the sooner she is gone the better. I love the fact that no matter what Stefan & Damon always have each others back. I'm trying to show some objectivity regarding Tyler, but I'm coming up empty. And i think that Dr. Martin had the best line of the night "When your friends wake up tell them to get the hell out of town". Now that is Bad Azz all the way.

    I can't wait until next Thursday.
