What I Watched: The Vampire Diaries, Scandal, & More

The Vampire Diaries, "Memorial (EP302)" - Wow. WOW. I mean, last week's premiere was fine, but with this episode - WELCOME BACK, SHOW. This episode was SO AWESOME that I almost don't know what to say about it. I will say that I've been liking Stefan better this season than possibly ever before, but at the same time, the Damon last night, grown-up, get-things-done, taking care of the kids Damon, is my favorite Damon of all and I would like to keep him please. But MATT. And TYLER. And CAROLINE. Everyone had such great moments. And that thing at the end . . . that thing at the end. I'm tearing up just thinking about it.

Scandal, "Hunting Season (EP203)" - Again/still, this show is awfully good at making me root for an adulterous relationship, and I don't know whether to love it or hate it for that. But hey, at least the show if very effective at what it's trying to do. Fitz was just killing me this episode. I also love the exploration of the way that Olivia's team is all tied to her for their own reasons, but have differing degrees of loyalty and don't necessarily trust each other. (I'm still pretty over the Quinn storyline. Can we move on?)

Chicago Fire, "Mon Amour (EP102)" - This was . . . a nice mental break between TVD and Scandal? No, really, it was fine. I can't say I care much about the actiony fire stuff, but the characters are interesting enough to make me keep watching for now.
