Short VD primer: I started watching this as background noise for doing my laundry and for a long time my interest stayed on that level, although I very quickly learned to appreciate the great number of interesting and often quite powerful female characters both human and supernatural. Roughly around Episode 9, the show started bringing in new and interesting characters and several storylines that jumped and twisted and intertwined in unpredictable and largely entertaining ways and some time later I realized I'm no longer ironically turned on by its bad boy image watching this for cheap kicks but actually enjoying it on its own merits. It even changed my opinion of Ian Somerhalder's acting skills, although that admittedly took a while.

I do like almost all characters; the ones I care most about are Alaric, Anna, Bonnie, Caroline and Elena, but I'm proud to say that after 21 episodes, I've even managed to distinguish Matt, Tyler and Jeremy. This, I assure you, was no mean feat.

Some notes about last week's episode under the cut:

I do believe in killing the messenger. You know why? Because it sends a message. )
