Weird TVD Project-Episode Titles!  
So I've been working on a weird TVD-project that is totally for my own OCD self. A lot of episode titles I'm pretty meh on and for some reason I've always been partial to really good titles. So............ I've gone through every TVD title and for quite a few of them renamed the episodes (LOL! Hey, I said it was weird!). Some are actually titles of other episodes and I did keep a few, but most are ones I came up with myself. The thing is that I don't toally OMG!Love all of the ones I have, so I'm putting this out there if anyone else has any different title suggestions!

This is the kind of weird thing I do, what fun!

I don't have time to analyse them now, I'll be back.
Bogwitch: Meg and Mog - Mog [new]bogwitch on July 10th, 2013 07:45 am (UTC)
But I will say now: no, no, no! You can't change 'Because the Night'! It's perfect as it is, Patti Smith connection and everything!
Arabian: Damon16arabian on July 10th, 2013 08:06 am (UTC)
Sorry, it doesn't work for me. But if you do it yourself, feel free to keep that title! It just doesn't fit the theme of the episode at all for me. If you can make it work for me, maybe.....
Bogwitch: TVD - Punk Damonbogwitch on July 10th, 2013 09:59 pm (UTC)
I won't do it myself, I am too busy trying to cast a Barbie TVD, build a Boarding House parlour set and work out how to make gravestones that are big enough.

Because the Night works for me not only because the song is from the New York scene Damon is inhabiting in the past, but Because the night is made for lovers refers to both Damon's lovers, Lexi and Elena, thus connecting 1977 with the present.

There's also there's these relevant lyrics:

Take me now baby here as I am
Pull me close, try and understand

Arabian: Alaric01arabian on July 11th, 2013 03:36 am (UTC)
Florencia below actually nailed my issue with the title -- I like the original title as a title, but I don't like it as a title for this particular episode. It just seems to be making some weird connection between Damon/Lexi and Damon/Elena scenes and it just feels... *wrong*

Yup! You know of my Lexi-issues, LOL! Like you said, connecting the two and just UGH! NOOOOO!!!

Bogwitch: Meg and Mog - Mog [new]bogwitch on July 10th, 2013 09:47 pm (UTC)
Brutal honesty follows!

S01.01 - Back to Life (Pilot) - good
S01.02 - My Brother's Keeper (The Night of the Comet) - good
S01.04 - Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered (Family Ties) – I don’t like either particularly. I don’t think the Buffy title fully fits. I don’t know what I would call it though. Doubt?
S01.06 - Death Becomes Her (Lost Girls) - good
S01.07 - Costume Drama (Haunted) - good
S01.09 - Promises, Promises (History Repeating) – I’m not sure I get your new one.
S01.10 - Photograph (The Turning Point) – I think you could develop this idea into something a little more snappy (puns intended),
S01.11 - Bloodline (Bloodlines) ???
S01.12 - The Great Pretender (Unpleasantville) – Maybe
S01.13 - What I Did For Love (Children of the Damned) – not bad
S01.15 - Q & A (A Few Good Men) – I like both
S01.16 - Caught In The Act (There Goes the Neighborhood) – unless, I’m missing something, doesn’t this refer to something a bit too minor?
S01.17 - When It Rains, It Pours (Let the Right One In) – Hee. I prefer the original title (I didn’t like the film much though)
S01.19 - The Good Brother (Miss Mystic Falls) - okay
S01.21 - Mommie Dearest (Isobel) - meh
S01.22 - Playing The Part (Founder's Day) - good

S02.01 - The Breaking Point (The Return) – good, but I wouldn’t have the ‘The’
S02.02 - Carnival Ride (Brave New World) – I prefer the original
S02.03 - Do The Right Thing (Bad Moon Rising) – I like both
S02.04 - Moonstruck (Memory Lane) – I really like this one
S02.05 - Covering Your Tracks (Kill or Be Killed) – I prefer the original
S02.08 - Death To Elijah (Rose) – does this allude to something?
S02.10 - Someone To Watch Over Me (The Sacrifice) - good
S02.12 - Once Bitten (The Descent) - good
S02.13 - What Doesn't Kill You (Daddy Issues) – I like both
S02.14 - Pack Mentality (Crying Wolf) – I like both, but prefer the original
S02.15 - Guess Who's Coming To Dinner? (Dinner Party) - good
S02.17 - Partners In Crime (Know Thy Enemy) – Not keen on either
S02.18 - Substitute Teacher (The Last Dance) – The Substitute? (adding ‘Teacher’ seems to lack poetry imo)
S02.19 - The Sun And Moon Curse (Klaus) – I’d tweak it to The Sun and the Moon and emphasise the dualities at play with the two sets of brothers.
S02.21 - The Sacrifice (The Sun Also Rises) – My problem with this is that it takes away the hope inherent in the original

Bogwitch: Meg and Mog - Mog [new]bogwitch on July 10th, 2013 09:47 pm (UTC)
S03.01 - The Ripper Returns (The Birthday) – I don’t like either.
S03.02 - An Army Of One (The Hybrid) – Army of Me?
S03.03 - Dangerous Liaisons (The End Of The Affair) – good!
S03.04 - Take Me As I Am (Disturbing Behavior) - okay
S03.05 - Tick Tock (The Reckoning) - good
S03.06 - Burn, Baby, Burn (Smells Like Teen Spirit) – I like both, but prefer the original
S03.07 - Night of Illumination (Ghost World) – I prefer the original (I wasn’t keen on that film either)
S03.08 - Origin Story (Ordinary People) I prefer the original
S03.09 - A Question Of Trust (Homecoming) - good
S03.10 - Guilty Conscience (The New Deal) - okay
S03.12 - Family Reunion (The Ties That Bind) - okay
S03.13 - Parental Control (Bringing Out The Dead) – I prefer the original
S03.14 - The Original Family Tree (Dangerous Liaisons) – It’s a bit prosaic.
S03.16 - The Ring (1912) – okay, but it makes me think it’s going to be about something entirely different.
S03.17 - Game Of Seduction (Break on Through) – I’m not keen on either, but marginally prefer the original (but only because I like the song)
S03.19 - Dark Temptation (Heart of Darkness) – I prefer the original
S03.20 - Guardian's Fall (Do Not Go Gentle) – does this allude to something?
S03.22 - Dearly Departed (The Departed) - good

S04.01 - Do Not Go Gentle (Growing Pains) - okay
S04.03 - Truth Be Told (The Rager) – good (it couldn’t be worse!)
S04.04 - The Mark Of The Five (The Five) - okay
S04.06 - In My Head (We All Go A Little Mad Sometimes) – okay. All In the Mind could another suggestion.
S04.07 - The Red Dress (My Brother's Keeper) - okay
S04.08 - Two In A Million (We'll Always Have Bourbon Street) - good
S04.12 - Risky Business (A View To A Kill) - good
S04.13 - To Be Human (Into The Wild) – I like both.
S04.14 - Goodbye Cruel World (Down The Rabbit Hole) – I like both
S04.15 - Strike A Match (Stand By Me) – okay, but maybe gives too much away.
S04.17 - Play Me (Because The Night) – Sacrilege!
S04.18 - A Time To Kill (American Gothic) – I like both, but the original suggests more to me.
S04.19 - Know Thy Enemy (Pictures Of You) – I prefer the original because it refers to something specific and continues the Cure metaphor.
S04.20 - The King Of New Orleans (The Originals) – much better
S04.22 - Hooked On A Feeling (The Walking Dead) – I don’t like either
S04.23 - My Shadow Self (Graduation) – I prefer yours, but again I think it gives too much away (I would expect this to be the title of an episode that explores the shadow self idea more explicitly. I suppose we should get something like that next season)
Arabian: Katherine04arabian on July 10th, 2013 10:13 pm (UTC)
The Ripper Returns (The Birthday) – I don’t like either.

I liked the play of it, like it sounds like it means that Stefan comes back to MF (which he does briefly), but it's more actually that we see the Ripper side of Stefan return.

An Army Of One (The Hybrid) – Army of Me?

No, because it's all about Klaus trying to build his army of hybrids, but it's failing miserably and so his army of hybrids remains just him, the one hybrid.

Take Me As I Am (Disturbing Behavior) - okay

Yeah, not a fave, but I struggled with this one.

The Original Family Tree (Dangerous Liaisons) – It’s a bit prosaic.

I adore this, pretty much my favorite. You have the known meaning for it, and then the blood tree at the end which is my favorite part of that episode.

The Ring (1912) – okay, but it makes me think it’s going to be about something entirely different.

It fits both the crazy-making ring AND the boxing ring, so I like it.

Game Of Seduction (Break on Through) – I’m not keen on either, but marginally prefer the original (but only because I like the song)

the original is so freaking vague, it's ridiculous. This applies to Damon playing the game with Rebekah, with Sage, and them both playing the game back with them, with the end result being that Damon figured they'd play him and so had the upper hand all along.

Dark Temptation (Heart of Darkness) – I prefer the original

For me, it wasn't about Elena's love for Damon, but the lust, thus I went away from heart, plus, I figured it fit Stefan and his darkness about being the ripper better than going with heart.

Guardian's Fall (Do Not Go Gentle) – does this allude to something?

Dual-you think it means that Alaric is going to die (as he's the guardian of sorts), but it's actually about him going to the dark side (thanks Esther!). I'm not in love with it though.

Strike A Match (Stand By Me) – okay, but maybe gives too much away.

I don't think anyone would think that the Gilbert house would burn down prior to it happening, LOL!

Know Thy Enemy (Pictures Of You) – I prefer the original because it refers to something specific and continues the Cure metaphor.

I don't love my title, but your reason is why I don't like the original. It makes the pictures of the prom idea seem like it was forced JUST to fit the title that is a Cure song. And it was SUCH a strong episode to me that I feel it deserves something that honors the awesome of the episode as opposed to a shoehorned title just to fit yet another Cure reference. And frankly, unless you research or out a big Cure fan, you'd have no idea. I like a few Cure songs, but had no idea this was a song of theirs until it was pointed out.

Hooked On A Feeling (The Walking Dead) – I don’t like either

I love this because it's all about Elena hanging onto her anger, that one feeling, SO determinedly.

My Shadow Self (Graduation) – I prefer yours, but again I think it gives too much away

I thought of that at first, but really it doesn't. Because we have NO clue about Stefan/Silas until the very end. If you thought about it while watching the ep, it'd be 'huh?' Then Katherine refers to Elena as her shadow self during their fight and you'd go 'ooohhhh!' and THEN you get the whammy at the end and it's OOOOHHHHHHH!!!!"

Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered (Family Ties) - I don’t like either particularly. I don’t think the Buffy title fully fits. I don’t know what I would call it though. Doubt?

It's NOT a Buffy title. It's based on the song. It fits in terms of Caroline being led that way by Damon, Elena breaking through that fog due to Stefan's caginess and Bonnie with her magic discovery. Yeah, I don't live and breath BTVS (even though I liked it) and I rarely associate things with Buffy that came from other things first.

Promises, Promises (History Repeating) – I’m not sure I get your new one.

Emily promised Damon that she'd help with Katherine, and in turn Damon promised to protect Emily's descendents. When Emily broke her promise, Damon broke his. It also started Stefan's "promise" to help Damon get Katherine back, which we know was all a lie.

Photograph (The Turning Point) – I think you could develop this idea into something a little more snappy (puns intended),

Had a bunch of puns, longer earlier, but when I shortened it to this, it felt perfect to me. Because really it's ALL about Elena finding that photograph of Katherine.

Bloodline (Bloodlines) ???

the 's' took away the power for me because it was about ELENA's bloodline that was key.

The Great Pretender (Unpleasantville) – Maybe

This took forever, but I love it because the song came out in the 50's and you have Alaric pretending, Anna pretending, Damon pretending, Noah pretending and even Noah setting up fake!Jeremy as a pretense to keep scare Elena about the danger to him.

Caught In The Act (There Goes the Neighborhood) – unless, I’m missing something, doesn’t this refer to something a bit too minor?

Jenna/Kelly are caught by the kids. Caroline is caught out by both Elena and Matt as to her motives for the 'double date' and of course, Kelly/Damon caught. (I'm not in love with this one though.)

Death To Elijah (Rose) – does this allude to something?

Three ways - literal, Damon kills Elijah (or so he thinks) so 'death to Elijah,' and when someone betrays Elijah that pretty much equals death to Elijah, finally, how Elijah kills (as in this is how death is handled according to Elijah) quickly, cleanly and very, very ostentatiously.

Partners In Crime (Know Thy Enemy) – Not keen on either

Not one of my faves, but I couldn't think of another. It fit in terms of Katherine/Isobel, Isobel/Klaus, Damon/Bonnie, Bonnie/Jeremy.

Substitute Teacher (The Last Dance) – The Substitute? (adding ‘Teacher’ seems to lack poetry imo)

Ah, but it's all about Alaric (the TEACHER) being the one subsituted. Love this one.

The Sun And Moon Curse (Klaus) – I’d tweak it to The Sun and the Moon and emphasise the dualities at play with the two sets of brothers.

I like that idea. Hmmmmmm....

The Sacrifice (The Sun Also Rises) – My problem with this is that it takes away the hope inherent in the original

I like the poetry of TSAR, but to me, it's just way too vague.

This is exactly the kind of weird thing I do too, except I don't have a creative bone in my body, so yours are way better than mine would be! :) These are so cute and clever and better than the real ones! I especially like "My Shadow Self," "Strike a Match," "The Game of Seduction," and "Two in a Million," but they're all fantastic! Very cool :)
Arabian: Alaric01arabian on July 10th, 2013 10:16 pm (UTC)

if you have any suggestions, hey, you may not think they're great, but I so might! -- feel free to share because I'm not in love with all of them. :)

Florencia: DE (4x23)florencia7 on July 11th, 2013 02:15 am (UTC)
Weird?!? Not at all. This is an AWESOME project and I'm already in love with your choices ♥

[Just to clarify, my comments refer to your titles, unless specified otherwise ;]

S01.01 - Back to Life (Pilot)
I love this one! How sad that the 1st episode didn't even have a title of any sort. Although now that I think about it... Isn't it interesting that it didn't? As if the ~actual beginning was 1.02 ;)

S01.02 - My Brother's Keeper (The Night of the Comet)
OMG This is perfect!!! I absolutely adore this choice to pieces.


S01.06 - Death Becomes Her (Lost Girls)
This one is fantastic!

S01.07 - Costume Drama (Haunted)
Ha! Much better idea too!

S01.10 - Photograph (The Turning Point)
I actually rather like The Turning Point, because I always kind of linked this title to what happens after this episode... if that makes sense lol In other words, I'd like to believe it's not specifically about Elena finding out about Katherine, but rather about Stefan failing Elena in some way for the first time (in this case not telling her about Katherine before their relationship reached another level, so to speak).

S01.13 - What I Did For Love (Children of the Damned)
Wonderful title!

S01.17 - When It Rains, It Pours (Let the Right One In)
Another wonderful one!

S01.19 - The Good Brother (Miss Mystic Falls)
AHHH This one is AWESOME ♥

S01.21 - Mommie Dearest (Isobel)
lol Yours is so much more fun.

S01.22 - Playing The Part (Founder's Day)
I like this one! Clever. (So many of these original titles are kind of blah, I don't really know why. Maybe the writers just don't feel like committing too much thought to the titles, since they don't even appear on screen? lol)

S02.01 - The Breaking Point (The Return)
I like yours MUCH better. For some reason The Return always bothered me as a title for this episode.

S02.02 - Carnival Ride (Brave New World)
Flawless title is flawless ♥

S02.08 - Death To Elijah (Rose)
I usually don't like titles consisting solely of characters names (it just seems kind of... lame, regardless of who it is, sorry Klaus lol), however in case of Rose I think it's kind of fun how they hid a spoiler in such an unassuming title. And they even did a foreshadowing scene with Damon, Elena and the red rose in 1x18 ;)

S02.12 - Once Bitten (The Descent)
Ohhhhh Great!

S02.18 - Substitute Teacher (The Last Dance)
Good one! :D

S02.20 - The Last Day
I can't possibly dislike the title alluding to the last day of actual SE ever ;) Nonetheless, I wish we could find something that also encompassed Damon's incessant and hopeless pro-activeness throughout this episode.
Arabian: Damon & Elena28arabian on July 11th, 2013 03:46 am (UTC)
How sad that the 1st episode didn't even have a title of any sort. Although now that I think about it... Isn't it interesting that it didn't?

Sadly not really. 99.9% of TV shows don't have a first episode title. They're almost all Pilot. Annoys me. Always will, LOL!

I'd like to believe it's not specifically about Elena finding out about Katherine, but rather about Stefan failing Elena in some way for the first time

Exactly. That's what the Photograph signifies. It works literally, but also for what that photograph represents. That's how I see it anyway.

So many of these original titles are kind of blah, I don't really know why.

I think it's because they're afraid of giving stuff away.

Carnival Ride (Brave New World)
Flawless title is flawless ♥


I LOVE this one! One of my faves.
Florencia: Damon (Stardust to Remember You By)florencia7 on July 11th, 2013 02:20 am (UTC)
S03.01 - The Ripper Returns (The Birthday)
I actually like both. The Birthday is probably the only lame title that I like lol It's just very appropriate, a clear sign that Elena begins a new chapter of her life (and she walks into her Birthday party with Damon by her side AND she's wearing a white dress, like in 4x23 ;)

S03.02 - An Army Of One (The Hybrid)
YES, such a good episode deserves a better title than the original one lol I definitely like yours better.

S03.04 - Take Me As I Am (Disturbing Behavior)
I like yours! I never liked the original one.

S03.07 - Night of Illumination (Ghost World)
Wonderful idea!

S03.09 - A Question Of Trust (Homecoming)
I love yours.

S03.10 - Guilty Conscience (The New Deal)
Aw Let's not put guilt in there! Lol I like how The New Deal suggests that after this episode things will never be the same (and I just realized I interpret all of these with DE in mind. Oh well ^^)

S03.14 - The Original Family Tree (Dangerous Liaisons)
I LOVE this one! ♥

S04.01 - Do Not Go Gentle (Growing Pains)
I love love love this title here! (Growing Pains may be one of my least favorites ever.)

S04.03 - Truth Be Told (The Rager)
Great one :D

S04.07 - The Red Dress (My Brother's Keeper)
I like this one!

S04.08 - Two In A Million (We'll Always Have Bourbon Street)
Fantastic! ♥

S04.14 - Goodbye Cruel World (Down The Rabbit Hole)
I like both, but I like yours better.

S04.15 - Strike A Match (Stand By Me)
Ohhhh I really like this one!

S04.17 - Play Me (Because The Night)
I like the original title as a title, but I don't like it as a title for this particular episode. It just seems to be making some weird connection between Damon/Lexi and Damon/Elena scenes and it just feels... *wrong* lol I like yours MUCH better!

S04.22 - Hooked On A Feeling (The Walking Dead)
I LOVE this one!
Arabian: Damon & Elena24arabian on July 11th, 2013 03:49 am (UTC)
Guilty Conscience (The New Deal)
Aw Let's not put guilt in there! Lol I like how The New Deal suggests that after this episode things will never be the same (and I just realized I interpret all of these with DE in mind. Oh well ^^)


This is one that is more than D/E. Yes, it refers to Damon's guilt... but Stefan was also guilty about betraying Damon (and Elena to a degree). Tyler was guilty about what was going on with Klaus and what he made him do to Jeremy. Elena was guilty about what she did to Jeremy. It really fit the episode all-around.

The Original Family Tree (Dangerous Liaisons)
I LOVE this one! ♥


Probably my favorite, LOL!

Do Not Go Gentle (Growing Pains)
I love love love this title here! (Growing Pains may be one of my least favorites ever.)


Yup! And that title fits SO MUCH BETTER here.

like the original title as a title, but I don't like it as a title for this particular episode. It just seems to be making some weird connection between Damon/Lexi and Damon/Elena scenes and it just feels... *wrong* lol

EXACTLY! You put into words my exact problem with it. Thank you!

Hooked On A Feeling (The Walking Dead)
I LOVE this one!


This is another favorite. :D

ETA: As I said I'm not 100% with all of the ones I did, so I made a few changes so far --

1.11 - Who I Am (referring to Elena and her adoption, relation to Katherine as well as the fun Elena she used to be, the reveal of what Damon is to Alaric--killing Isobel--and also who Damon is in regards to him killing Bree for betraying him.)

1.13 - Promise Not To Tell (refers to Elena/Stefan keeping their betrayal a secret from Damon, Stefan promising Damon to not tell their father about Katherine, Damon promising Katherine/Pearl that he wouldn't tell their secret, and of course Anna not telling Jeremy the truth at all about who she is.)

4.19 - A Step Too Far (Damon/Stefan backing off from Elena until she goes too far, trying to kill April and Bonnie, Silas losing his uber-control on Bonnie because he goes too far using Jeremy)

As I think up, possibly change more, do you want me to respond in this thread letting you know the changes?

1.11 - Who I Am
I love this one!! It's perfect ♥

1.13 - Promise Not To Tell
This one is awesome! (I'm thinking that something along the lines of "what you don't know (won't hurt you)" could work too, maybe.)

4.19 - A Step Too Far
LOVE it. It has such an episode-appropriate ring to it.

OF COURSE! If that's not a problem, I'd love for you to keep me updated :D Thank you!

Cool!

I just thought of one for 1.15 that I LOVE! (And I think it's perfect.) "How I Met Your Mother" (HAH!) Thoughts?

Oh, that's cool. I'm gonna go through my titles and look at the ones I'm not in love with and see what you have here to see if any fit better! :D

ETA: Hah! Starting a new chain of comments here --

How about "No More Tears" for 4.15?

I like "No More Tears" for 4x15 a lot!! That's a VERY good one.
Arabian: Damon02arabian on July 31st, 2013 12:30 pm (UTC)
Cool.

Still not 100%, but I went back to "Who I Am" for "Bloodlines." Also, what do you think of this for 4.04 = "Bloodlust."

I was thinking of it in terms of, obviously, Damon and Elena (duh!), but also the fact that because of Stefan's legit bloodlust, he can't be the one helping her (which Elena tells him in the beginning), and the whole fact that bloodlust is pretty much the key thing in being a vampire and The Five are out to kill vampires. Yes/no?

"Bloodlust" for 4x04 is great!! I like all the undertones. It fits all the themes really well.
