The other night on the CW, they aired a long, long season recap. They’re basically getting us ready for the third season by airing the climactic moments of the last season, and catching us up on the big plot points. Oh and they’re also showing us… Damon. Naked and soapy. Yum. Well, not totally naked. This isn’t True Blood. Isn’t it great though, how one awesome vampire show ends, and then another starts right back up? I don’t know about you, but right now, I feel like the gods of cable TV have reached out and…. touched me. In the nice way, not in the Catholic way.
There’s a slightly sped up version on YouTube, with no naked Damon though, unfortunately.
But since I can’t find it anywhere on the web, wouldn’t you know, I’ve got exclusive shots from the video! Yay! They’re posted throughout. Now I know we’re all thinking Damon and Elena are going to get a lot closer in this season, and that’s probably true. But I don’t want you to get your hopes up; Sookie will end up with Bill, Bella will end up with Edward (and their creepy baby), and Elena will almost probably end up with Stefan. They’re the good guy vampires.
This is where we left off; Jeremy can see ghosts, –typical movie-land mythos. Once you have a near death/all-the-way-dead experience, and are brought back, especially by supernatural means, you can see other dead people. Bonnie has screwed the pooch with the witches up in the big creepy mansion, somewhere in the woods. But on the flip side, she has loads of power now. Aunt Jenna is dead, tres sad, Stefan traded his life for Damon and Elena’s, Klaus became a hybrid because Elijah, who is now presumably packed in sawdust with the rest of his family, betrayed everyone and ended up not killing his own brother as promised. I mean, really, is there no honor amongst vampires? Even the huge black dude in ‘I Love You Phillip Morris’ went out screaming “my word is my bond!” Are you telling me a giant black convict, playing slow tunes for a gay couple the next cell over, has more honor and loyalty to his word than ancient vampire nobility? Just what kind of world are we living in?!
Oh well. If Elijah had kept his word, then Klaus would be dead and we could all just watched as the show ended in Season 2. So thanks Elijah, for keeping the show around, and letting Damon get naked on camera for us. Woohoo.
