Day 10 - Favorite Caroline Scene

"Masquerade" (Season 02, Episode 07) -- "I did it."

I was really stuck trying to come up which Caroline scene I wanted to grab, there was the Pilot scene where she explains to Bonnie that it is a competition (the scene that made me fall for Caroline), the scene in "Miss Mystic Falls" where she tells Elena why she has to not drop out, the scene with her mother in "Plan B" that broke my heart, the opening of "Masquerade" where she tells Stefan about her meeting with Katherine, but I finally settled on this one, even though it's short.

I just loved how Caroline put on such a show for Katherine, and then once she succeeded the joy on her face when she faced Katherine was, well, joyous. Caroline has always felt less-than and not good enough, she's got self-esteem issues up the wazoo and to see her realize how totally awesome she can be was just a fantastic moment for her ... and for this Caroline-fan fantastic watching her have that moment.

Caroline has so many awesome scenes, but I knew exactly which scene I would pick for this, so I'm not influenced by you at all...though I am nodding vigorously with each of the things you mentioned. Also, her face of GLEE is so great in this scene. I love it. Good choice!

I also love that scene at the beginning of "Masquerade" because of her saying that line about quasi-stalking Matt. So funny.

My favorite part of that beginning scene is when she said "I'm such a doofus!" in present day and then in the flashback you can totally see that very thought in her facial expression as she looks in the mirror. I love it.

And Damon's boredom with the "teenage drama" -- man, what a great scene altogether. Makes me want to watch it again!

I had intended on doing a TVD rewatch starting yesterday, but just wasn't feeling it. I have two movies to watch, and then I'll start it. I have three and a half more days so I should manage it.

Love, love, love this scene as well. It was awesome to see Caroline have this moment and the look on her face was just wonderful. To see her triumph over Katherine, even in this small way, is very cool.

You are right that there have been multiple great Caroline scenes. Great choice of this one.

Caroline is just so awesome. I will never understand people only seeing her awesomeness post-vamping. I've loved her from episode one. :)

I'm one of those who didn't appreciate Caroline pre-vamping. I don't know why; I could never really put my finger on it, but I just couldn't make myself love her. I couldn't make myself love Matt or Tyler either, but at least I do know why that was. Anyway, Caroline has completely won me over this season, and I can finally see that she is totally made of awesome. I'm late to the Caroline-appreciation party, but better late than never, lol.

I do love so much the scene you mentioned. :)

Again, for me, it started in the very first episode. But I've waxed poetic about Caroline in the past. You all know why I love her.

And yes, better late than never. :)

Good choice! I don't think I'd be able to pick just one favourite.

With the awesome that is Caroline, it is difficult.

love your pick!! I was all giggly and elated right along with her; it was so wonderful to see her best someone who's been breaking her down in such a way, and to see how genuinely happy she was at having accomplished something like this ^_^
Arabian: Caroline02arabian on December 31st, 2010 01:32 pm (UTC)
It was great; I love Caroline so and I love that she had that moment!

That one was more about Caroline and her mom, and I'm trying to go with scenes that are awesome because of that specific character as opposed to being awesome because of the connection/relationship on display in the scene. If that makes any sense, LOL! It was a gorgeous scene, though, definitely.

This is a fantastic moment. It's probably tied for my favourite along with that badass "wanna bet" scene in 2x05 versus Mason. But basically the real answer to this question is "every scene".

Caroline is pretty dang awesome. I must concur.

Caroline had my heart from that scene in the pilot too. That and the scene from "Masquerade" were also on my short list. I love how happy she is that she was able to fool Katherine! It's good to see Caroline realize that she has something to offer, ya know?
Arabian: Damon03arabian on January 5th, 2011 05:31 pm (UTC)
Caroline was the hardest to whittle down actually. I love her so. :)
