It was good. It could have almost served as a series finale.

the "tease" with the humanity potion was really well done.  I certainly didn't see it coming and they did a great job playing multiple sides.

it was funny:

Spoiler for Hiden:
I was thinking wouldn't it be awesome if Stefan or Damon shot in and stuffed the cure down Katherine's throat, but then Elena whipped it out.  in a way it was more poetic that Elena did it and in a way fulfilled her desire to kill Katherine, not with a quick death but an eventual one.

unless she finds a way to re-vamp herself.

I was somewhat mixed on both the TVD and TO premieres, some good stuff, some not so good.  Splitting casts with a spinoff is always risky and can often be awkward for both shows.  I like that Elijah gets a much bigger role in TO and there's some interesting potential with the werewolves and witches.  But... I much prefer Klaus in TVD with Caroline, so that's kind of a bummer.  He just seems terribly annoying and whiny in TO.  Ditto Matt with Rebekah, that was one of my favorite pairings so it sucks to split them on different shows.

All in all I think both shows handled the transition well enough, I do enjoy having two hours of vampire goodness a week.  TVD doesn't seem to be missing a beat with its Silas storyline, though without Klaus it's kind of missing a big piece.  TO I really wonder if/how it will stand on its own over time.  It would be nice if they brought back a couple more of the family members like Cole and the wacky mother but we'll see.

The second episode of the Originals shown last night was pretty good.  Looks like it is going to be mainly Klaus and Rebekah, but other than Marcel and wolf girl they really haven't been developing a supporting cast.  I'm guessing the one witch will be a regular, and Marcel's secret seems a bit big to be whipping out on a regular basis.

also, just found out that last weeks episode was the backdoor pilot told from a different point of view; guess I'll be watching it online.  The description given on the DVR was pretty much the same as the VD episode, they should have mentioned it was from Elijah's POV.

Yeah I thought the second episode was much better, mainly because of Rebekah and the Marcel origin/relationship was a nice twist.  Rebekah's personality seems to shift sporadically from one episode to the next, though, so the writers really need to get a more consistent feel for her.  WW girl also seems inconsistent from what she was like in TVD.  I still think they need to get Elijah and at least one more Original to make the show feel more cohesively about "The Originals."

Vampire Diaries good as usual. Liked the Originals premier as well, although I would have preferred to see Klaus stay as one of the 'bad guys' on VD.

yeah, Elijah being 'on vacation' is kinda of a bummer.  here's hoping it gets resolved soon.

Both shows picked it up a notch this week, very enjoyable. 

Spoiler for Hiden:
I actually thought they had killed Katherine for a split second!!!!

On a side note, I'm really sick of Tyler and even the mention of him.  Hopefully they drop him or send him to the Originals to get butt-raped by Klaus and Marcel.  And what happened to Matt?  Did I fall asleep and miss something?  I have a theory that each of the non-main actors have a contract that only puts them in X episodes, because it often seems like someone like Bonnie or Jeremy or Matt will disappear for an extended period of time or for full episodes at a time.  And last question, why didn't I have college professors that were young and super hot?

Yeah, hey need to give Caroline something else to do that doesn't involve boyfriend drama. She can be a little badass, they just need to give her something.

interesting week for the series.  One storyline wrapped up while a crossover appearance ratchets up the stakes.

Even though Helix has taken my favorite current TV show slot, I'm still keeping up with Vampire Diaries.

Good twist at the end of last episode with Katherina. Just when you think she's finally found a heart.. not so much. Her and Klaus would make a good team.

It was such a nice treat to see Klaus and Rebekah on the show again, along with some of the others.  I still think it was a mistake to spin them off.  Actually I'm enjoying The Originals more than TVD these days, but I really feel like TVD is suffering.  I mean, I like Nina Dobrev but they might as well call the show The Nina Dobrev Diaries; her and her million incarnations are just too much.  The show is lacking a distinct villain or even distinct side characters.

- - -

Side note, yeah, Helix is fantastic, I'm surprised there isn't more buzz around here.  I haven't enjoyed a creepy Friday night show this much since the original X-Files (coincidentally the last show I remember to use black ink/ooze so readily).
