The Vampire Diaries. Season 3, Episode 13: "Bringing Out The Dead"

Well, hello there, Mama Original.

Something tells me the Esther has some bitch in her. She's a mother and a very powerful witch. She also used the original doppleganger, Tatia's (a very nice strong name) blood for great, grave spells. Don't forget the extra-marital affair. I'm not judging, just saying she is capable of a lot of things. And it's exciting since the whole Original family dynamics is one deadly soap opera.

An Original family reunion at last.

Joseph Morgan really is a charm, brilliantly exposing all of Klaus's primal aspects as werewolf, vampire, and most importantly, as a human. With all the rest of the Originals undaggered, the danger alarm is on high alert, not just for the people of Mystic Falls or the Salvatore brothers but for Klaus as well.

Elijah cleans up really well and dangerously so—my type of combo.

We get it already; Alaric is family now, and seeing him and Elena makes me want to believe that there is hope for humans after all. And since we're on family talk, Stefan and Damon has some brotherly love to rekindle if they want to have a fighting chance.

My taste leans towards the more mature Elijah, but Kol is a real eye-candy.

Aside from mom-daughter witches opening the coffin, Bill Forbes is dead, with a fitting display of strong human morals (and still gay, mind you) till the end. Vampire Barbie needs a break from all the drama and needs to start kicking some serious butt. With the serial non-supernatural deaths of founder council peeps (an attempt on Alaric, also a council member), I still think Flirty Doc is up to no good even if she might be off the hook. And Matt is now a human tissue box.

P.S. Let me tip my hat off to the writers. Lines like, "You're on speakerphone, dick!" never fails to delight my viewing experience.
