The Vampire Diaries: Homeschooling Covers a Multitude of Sins
Oh, Vampire Diaries, is it nice to reinforce the stereotype of home-schooled kids as weird by letting a vamp just hang out at the library, try too hard with Jeremy, and crash the school dance pretend that she's home schooled?
Our other thought about this is that these day-walker aids must be like a dime a dozen. We thought they were rare and prized? How is Miss Home Schooled able to stalk Jeremy during all hours? When she showed up, we wondered if she was either going to be a vamp or vamp food. She's a great character with murky motives and we love that. She's got a bit of a temper, though, to judge by her annoyance that Jeremy let the journal out of his hands for a while. Call us sentimental, but we don't want Jeremy to remember what happened with Vicki and sink back into his drug spiral.
We're a bit worried about Damon. Since Bonnie/Emily destroyed the crystal, he's been a little down. Not taking care of himself, and making less of an effort at being charming.
Let's discuss Damon's recent greasiness after the jump, shall we?
See, he still looks great, but he has been looking like the lovelorn, "I don't care anymore," cranky, short-tempered vamp that he really is. Before the destruction of the crystal, he either washed his hair more often or used less product in it. Not to mention being fairly charming at all times. Now his charm is a tad bit on the I'm Not Having Any Fun side.
Old Damon would have even charmed Alaric, vervain aside.
Or maybe he was trying to be all 1950s with the leather jacket and greaser hair. Somehow we feel like that was a happy coincidence. Can you see him singing Greased Lightning? We can. We did feel sorry for him that none of the girls would dance with him.
And YAY for a Caroline fix. Poor girl just never learns. You can't go around in public where your would-be boyfriend is and make nasty judgmental comments. That always, ALWAYS bites you in the beehive.
How delicious that Bonnie's new love interest is actually a hot vamp in conspiracy with Miss Home Schooled. We don't think either of them will be around for too long, so let's give him the nickname Washed Up Jock. Poor Bonnie, not knowing that his real love interest is another fellow undead! You know, from the perspective of predator v. prey and the need for secrecy, the ratio of undead to living is awfully high there. How are all these vamps keeping nourished, exactly? Staving off that undead pallor? While going undetected this whole while?
Question to ponder for the week: Why can't the invitation to come into a house be revoked effectively?
