'The Vampire Diaries' Season 3, Episode 2 Recap

The Vampire Diaries['The Vampire Diaries' - 'The Hybrid]

Sure, 'The Vampire Diaries' plots travel at superhuman speed, but considering this was only the second episode of Season 3, there's no way Klaus was going to succeed at creating his army of werewolf-vampire hybrid slaves.

Wait, I'm sorry. "Not slaves -- soldiers. Comrades." Klaus says potato, I say semantics.

So, of course, the entire hybrid exercise was futile since the whole pack ended up dead before the full moon was over. Although Klaus did "everything he was told" (who told him these things?!) and killed a vampire, a werewolf and a doppelganger -- oh, wait, there's the problem -- instead of turning into an army of badass hybrid killers, it got really 'Trainspotting'-meets-'True Blood' up in that mountainside when the wolf-vamps started shaking like they were in heroin withdrawal and crying blood tears.

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 3 Premiere Recap

The Vampire Diaries ['The Vampire Diaries' - 'The Birthday']

I'm not saying that 'The Vampire Diaries' is predictable -- it's anything but, in fact -- but the opening scene of Thursday's Season 3 premiere felt almost 'Law & Order'-like in its familiarity.

We knew things were not going to turn out well for the poor girl who just happened to be outside in the dark in the middle of nowhere when approached by the (insanely attractive) man we all know to be Klaus, the psychopath half-vampire/half-werewolf hybrid who destroys all in his path to world domination. (Okay, so we haven't really seen that on NBC.)

But this particular PYT wasn't exactly the random victim you'd find in a procedural -- she was a seemingly minor casualty in Klaus 'n Stefan's Tour De Murder, but in fact she helped set our Season 3 plot in motion. The girl led K 'n S (sounds like a '90s R&B group) to Ray Sutton (David Gallagher), the werewolf the boys had been searching all summer for, and as we would learn by the end of the episode, the first unlucky member of the hybrid army Klaus is planning to build with lieutenant Stefan by his side.

The Vampires are Forced to Seek the Sun on 'True Blood' (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Aug 8th 2011 6:40AM
'True Blood' S04/E07If there's one thing we all know about vampires, it's that they hate sunlight. But on this week's episode of 'True Blood' (Sun., 9PM ET on HBO) they all seemed to be intent on rushing headlong toward it.

The vengeful Antonia (Fiona Shaw) cast a spell that threatened to send all vampires into the sun to meet their death in the most ghastly way -- spontaneous (non-)human combustion.

Thankfully, Bill managed to warn most vamps and so Sookie and the gang were able to prepare for it by blacking out their windows and chaining the vampires to their beds.

Pam got to stay in the shade by being locked in her pink coffin with Ginger lying on the top to keep the lid closed. She had to cling on for dear life as Pam did her utmost to get out and walk toward the sunlight.

Eric Must Kneel Before His King on 'True Blood' (VIDEO)

'True Blood' - 'I Wish I Was the Moon'With the full moon upon Bon Temps, Jason Stackhouse was terrified that this would be his first transformation into a panther, while Tara was facing the demons of her past being revealed to her New Orleans girlfriend.

Jesus' uncle knows more even than Jesus and Lafayette do about the danger they're facing, but it's Bill and Eric who stood at the center of this episode of 'True Blood' (Sun., 10PM ET on HBO).

After last week's cliffhanger where Pam revealed to Bill where Eric has been staying all this time, Bill felt completely betrayed by Sookie. To make matters worse, vampires are very fast and that Eric/Sookie makeout session had really only just gotten under way.

Eric Loses Control Around Sookie's Fairy Godmother on 'True Blood' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 11th 2011 5:18AM
'True Blood' - 'If You Love Me, Why Am I Dyin'?'Can you be mad at a vampire for feeding if he's suffering from amnesia? What if he looks up at you with those puppy dog eyes of his and says, "Sorry"? That was Sookie's dilemma on 'True Blood' (Sun., 9PM ET on HBO)

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

Even stricken with amnesia, a vampire is a very dangerous thing, and Eric is one of the most dangerous ones in the 'True Blood' universe. Plus, we're pretty sure Sookie's "fairy godmother" was about to take things to a much nastier level with her "this is not a request."

Simple waitress one day, object of affection for multiple supernatural beings the next -- it's a hard life she leads.

In the meantime, and in honor of the Bill-Sookie-Eric love triangle, I've compiled a list of the sexiest vampires to ever grace TV screens.

Check out who made the cut after the jump, then weigh in on your favorite sexy vampires.

'The Vampire Diaries' - 'Blood Brothers' Recap

by Jane Boursaw, posted Apr 30th 2010 9:38AM
The Vampire Diaries, Paul Wesley, Blood Brothers
(S01E20) "You're back on Bambi blood, and I'm a badass big brother again. All is right in the world." - Damon to Stefan

A jealous brother, an evil uncle, and a trusting girlfriend all played into this episode of 'The Vampire Diaries.' We also got some flashbacks that revealed more of the Salvatore brothers' backstory and why Damon hates Stefan so much. Although, really, if he hated him that much, he wouldn't have organized the rescue mission to extract Stefan out of the vampires' farmhouse lair. Maybe he did it more for Elena than anything else.

And is it just me, or are Damon and Elena getting awfully chummy lately? I'll answer my own question: yes, they are.

(S01E19) "I don't hurt people. I don't do that. I'm the good brother." - Stefan

Stefan may think he's the good brother, but despite his best efforts to stay that way, he's going dark. He can't deny his true nature, and drinking human blood just brings that boiling up inside his soul.

The Vampire Diaries: Under Control
(S01E18) "Have I entered an alternate universe where Stefan is fun?" - Damon

Somewhere in the last few episodes, things have shifted on 'The Vampire Diaries.' Now Damon seems like the good vamp (well, sort of; how fun was it to see his face when Uncle John came back from the dead?), while Stefan is going dark. I don't mind seeing Stefan go dark, because, frankly, he's a little boring being so virtuous all the time.

But he's not going willingly, that's for sure. He's trying hard to detox, but that drink of human blood last week -- Elena's blood -- gave him a wicked hunger that is not easily satisfied. Is there a 12-step program for vampires?

'The Vampire Diaries' - 'Let the Right One In' Recap

The Vampire Diaries, Let the Right One In
(S01E17) "I'm not gonna turn someone who learned everything he knows about vampires from Netflix." - Anna to Jeremy

There's a storm brewing, not only in the weather, but also those 25 cranky vampires in the farmhouse outside of town. By the end of this episode, there were a few less vampires there, not to mention the owner of the house.

Damon and Alaric made a great badass team, even if Alaric was ticked enough about the whole incident to slug Damon after it was all over. And everything that happened helped to further my fascination with (the still not-dead?) Frederick, especially after Pearl told him they can't live by revenge and need to have better control over their emotions. We can see how well that worked for him.

The Vampire Diaries, There Goes the Neighborhood(S01E16) "I have 400 years on you, little boy. I'll rip you from limb to limb, and you know it." - Pearl to Damon

Just another average day on 'The Vampire Diaries' -- Matt and Caroline on a double date with Elena and Stefan. Or as Stefan put it, "a nice evening out with friends ... as in ... fun."

Let's face it. There's not going to be any fun for anyone on this show, especially with those 25 restless vampires in the farmhouse -- or as I like to call it, the vamp compound -- outside of town.

There's a vampire war brewing, and nothing anyone says or does is going to stop it. And thank goodness for that, because it promises to be really entertaining for us.

'America's Next Top Model' - 'America's Next Top Vampire' Recap

Krista channels her inner vampire on Top Model.
(S14E04) This week on 'America's Next Top Model,' Tyra banks decided to continue trying to be current by realizing that people like vampires. At least it was a step more current than her MySpace parody in the first episode. It makes me wonder if people will find bloody vampires as controversial as the dead model photoshoot in Cycle Eight, or is there a double standard with vampires?

Speaking of vampires, Tyra continues to suck the souls of her contestants. This week, Brenda was forced to change her hair yet again. Instead of soccer mom, Brenda's sides were buzzed to give her more of a faux-hawk look.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Sneak PeekWhat a high-class problem Bella Swan has. Choose her best friend, hunky Jacob Black, or her true love, broody Edward Cullen. Those who've read the 'Twilight' books by Stephenie Meyer already know the answer to that question. The rest of us will have to wait until 'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse' arrives in theaters June 30.

We'll get plenty of sneak peeks until then, and one of them aired on 'Entertainment Tonight' (weekdays, syndicated). Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Bryce Dallas Howard, who plays the deadly vampire Victoria, explain a little about their characters.

David Anders Signs for 'Vampire Diaries'

by Mike Moody, posted Feb 24th 2010 12:01PM
david anders Don't feel sorry for David Anders. I know it seems like he's constantly getting killed off or written out of high-profile shows, but the guy always seems to land on his feet with another juicy new role on a popular series.

Just a few days after his most recent TV baddie bit the dust, TV Guide has confirmed that Anders is joining the cast of the CW hit 'The Vampire Diaries'.

Anders has been tapped to play Jonathan Gilbert, Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Jeremy's (Steven R. McQueen) uncle. But don't expect to see him acting like role a model for Mystic Fall's troubled teens. A source tells EW's Michael Ausiello that Uncle Jonathan is coming to town to "cause some trouble."

(S01E14) "Spirits talk, Mr. Salvatore, and so does my granddaughter. You are no friend to us. Now get off my porch." - Sheila to Damon

Well, finally! Finally we get to that darn tomb and see what's in there (lots of scary souls). At the beginning of this episode, I was going to complain about how 'The Vampire Diaries' has been a lot of talk and not much action lately. But at least we got the tomb scene, and Sheila's awesome witch powers. Still ... is it just me, or has the show leveled off a bit on the excitement factor?
