Thoughts on the TVD preview for next week  
So I've been thinking on the preview for "In the Light of the Moon," and have some thoughts.


So, two things.

1) Why did they randomly throw in a shot of Damon and Kelly Donovan from "There Goes the Neighborhood" in there? I looked at it bunches of times to see if maybe I was wrong and it's a new character, but no, that's totally Kelly (Melinda Clarke) from that episode with Damon, Kelly and Jenna at the bar. That was just weird.

2) I had pretty much convinced myself the Stefan/Katherine stuff is some dream of a kind (maybe Kat putting it in his head), but there's a moment where she's clearly looking at someone and smirking her ass off that said someone is seeing Stefan going all wildly passionate with her. I don't think it's Elena, but I could see it being Damon -- who'd be there to update Stefan, bring him blood. But the point is the fact that we actually see Katherine looking at someone like that, why would she do that in a forced dream on Stefan? And that makes me lean towards the idea it's real; and if so ... can I just say whoah? I can't really see Elena not being majorly (and I mean MAJORLY) affected by Stefan getting all hot and bothered with Katherine due to the fact that ...

(a) they look alike
(b) was there before Elena, and was the reason he started stalking watching Elena
(c) Katherine is a huge part of their problems now
(d) bitch caused Jenna to stab herself in the stomach
(e) bitch snacked on Jeremy
(f) after only a few days, he's giving in already which shows that, yeah, he's been lying to Elena and himself that there are and have been feelings still there

I'm not trying to say it's so much worse than what Damon did (you know, the whole neck-snapping of her brother), but they're terrible in different ways, and because it's about the heart, Jeremy didn't die, Damon wasn't trying to take him from her, but rather turn him and there were extenuating circumstances (GAWD! I am SUCH a Damon stan!), this could hit Elena as a deeper betrayal. Still, she's clearly forgiven Damon for what he did (even if she hasn't said it), so I can't see her not forgiving Stefan. On the other hand, I can't see her easily stepping back into a relationship with Stefan either for quite some time.

So, yeah. It will be very interesting to see how this plays out.

Yeah, an Elena nightmare is a good call. Cuz even with an ulterior motive, that's still pretty big a betrayal in my eyes. Otherwise, I just can't see Stefan doing that at this point.

I don't know, I keep thinking that scene is real... It surely would be interesting.

You're right about Matt's mom, I hadn't even noticed here! Now I'm worried, I just hope this is really from an earlier episode and not a sign of her stepping back into the picture or else I'll scream.

No, it's definitely from ep16 in season 1. Although, I do know that Kevin & Julie said her story wasn't over, so we may see her back again someday.

That's a relief.
Yes I read that interview and since then I have been scared to see her returning. I just couldn't stand her during the first season and pretty much ended up skipping all her scenes.

This Stefan and Katherine thing, however, the more I think about it, the more I doubt it's even real. I guess we'll have to wait until next Thursday to find out.

For some reason I'm thinking that Stefan and Katherine getting all up on each other has something to do with the fact that Stefan still has some of the ashes from Bonnie's spell. It might be a trick to get close to her so the gang can work their magic. There are so many things it can be.

I thought that random clip with Matt's mom from season one was a weird thing to put in the promo as well. My thought is that they were trying to highlight Damon's charm when it comes to the ladies since Katherine is basically goading Stefan with the fact that Damon will surely go after Elena now that he's is out of the picture for a bit.

Katherine is powerful. She might be able to make him think she's Elena, especially if he's weak from blood withdrawal. And if he thinks she's Elena, after being away from her so long, I can totally see him giving in to her.

Oh wow, I wanna watch the episode tout de suite. I'm still on episode 8 so yay, I got a number of eps to watch but boo, I'm not all caught up.

This promo is so interesting to watch because I went all Eeek, what are you doing, Stefan? and somehow I think the scene is real.
Stefan might have some agenda but I'm still convinced that Katherine has a very strong pull on him. She gets to him on a certain level no matter if he wants it or not. Same goes for Damon and Elena.

I can't wait to see this, they love to confuse us with the promos and I bet this will be one epic episode before the holiday hiatus.
