Mostly Vampire Diaries 4x21 -- She's Come Undone (and a bit on other things)

I had the chance to watch TVD 4x20 and 4x21. I didn't have too many thoughts about the backdoor pilot for The Originals, so, briefly, I like Marcel. Rebekah is a constant source of joy. JM is a good actor. For those three reasons, I will give TO a try when it airs.

I have more thoughts on "She's Come Undone", though not terribly many: I like that the torture was completely pointless and Elena was completely in control the whole time. The actual way her emotions turned back on -- first a burst of joy that Matt (the boy she died for) was still alive, and then the slow-burning embers of her hate for Katherine -- was excellent, I thought.

I'm glad that Liz is still alive! I was worried. Good Caroline stuff this week, I thought, and I always enjoy getting a focus on Caroline and Liz's relationship. And Bonnie is a BAMF.

I've been watching Spartacus here and there for the last few weeks and really enjoying it. I've just started the third (last) season. It is incredibly bloody, though, so if that's a concern, it's not the show for you. But the characters are great and I love the way the show has illustrated the complexities of the system of oppression the Romans had set up.

And, on a less cheerful note, for some reason, seeing all the enthusiasm for IM3 makes me feel... less enthused? IDK, I've gotten to the point where I feel like it can't possibly live up to the fandom hype.

Eh, I probably just feel that way because I haven't see it yet and won't get the chance for at least another week. I don't know.

There are many good things about having a steady job that you like -- but I do find myself with a lack of free time.

I've been watching and enjoying Supernatural -- loved the episode two weeks ago with Charlie (so much love for Charlie; she's a gem) and enjoyed this week's episode as well.

I've fallen behind on Revenge and Once Upon a Time. Hopefully, I will get the chance to catch up soon.
