Blood thirsty, but amazing!
22 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

This was an amazing episode! I love how they showed Caroline turning into a vampire! Candice Accola did an amazing job as her character! I think that how they showed that Caroline wakes up and gets all blood thirsty and she drinks the blood from the blood tube was really good.

I don't like that Elena is being so mean to Damon, since I love his character! I really enjoyed how Caroline started to threaten Damon and how she told him that she remembers all the stuff that he did when she was human! I loved the second last scene between Matt and Caroline! It was really sweet of Matt to reveal his feelings to her, and how she controlled her thirst by breathing in and out a few times. This really shows that she loves Matt, and that she doesn't want to kill him.

The last scene between Stefan and Elena was really cute and sweet, but they had to break the romance by saying the last couple of lines. I think that the fight between Mason and the other guy was really neat and very action filled. I loved how Mason's eye color changed, showing that he was really angry.

I really enjoyed this episode, and I can't wait till this weeks episode. It looks really good
