The Vampire Diaries: The 5 Best Moments from "Haunted" (Season 1, Episode 7)


The Vampire Diaries celebrated Halloween with an episode sure to divide fans. While the first six episodes were all building up to a great boil, the show made one big change this week by killing off a major and beloved character, for real.


The episode explored Vicki's newfound vampire abilities while everyone around her worried about what was happening. The Vampire Diaries had more great lines, witty Damon moments, and just a little bit of Bonnie's witchy adventure to move her story forward a tiny bit more. But here are my five favorite moments, all of which include my two favorite characters, Vicki and Damon.


Vicki Fights Elena


When these two ladies had their inaugural showdown, it was full of bad-ass Vicki choking Elena and assuring her that she'll do whatever she wants with Elena's brother Jeremy. It was a fascinating scene not just because Kayla Ewell is suddenly fantastic as Vicki, but because their issues about dating each others' brothers "pre-date the whole vampire thing" as Vicki said.


Damon Seduces Tyler's Mom


The mysterious Council is still hard at work trying to rid Mystic Falls of its vampire infestation, and while Tyler Lockwood's mom may be immune to Damon's vampire powers of mind control, she couldn't resist his charm. Not only did she reveal a lot about the Council's plan, but Damon proved that he doesn't need mind control to get women to do whatever he wants.


Vicki Kisses Jeremy


In one of TV's most disturbing kisses of all-time, Vicki bit Jeremy's lip, then licked up the blood before going back to kissing him.


Vicki Dies Again


I've loved the past few episodes of The Vampire Diaries, but I think the show made a huge mistake killing off Vampire Vicki, for real this time. She was quickly becoming a great character, and then the show tragically had her attack Elena, forcing Stefan to stake her. Still, it was a shocking and heartbreaking moment.


Damon Erases Jeremy's Memory


Damon may act like a cold bastard, but he proved he's capable of some compassion, stepping in at the very end and agreeing to help Elena by erasing Jeremy's memory of seeing Vicki die. It was a huge gesture that showed another side to Damon.


Damon's 5 Best Quotes from "Haunted"


'Dude,' really? 'Dude'? - After ripping Tyler up from the ground, Damon's amusement over Tyler calling him "dude" was priceless


Snatch, Eat, Erase. - Damon's people-eating motto


He's upstairs singing 'The Rain in Spain. - Not only am I impressed with Damon's ability to make a reference to the musical My Fair Lady, comparing Stefan to Professor Henry Higgins trying to teach a cockney woman to speak properly, but I'm astonished that The Vampire Diaries would make a reference that most of the young fans probably didn't understand


Umm...my bad. - Another classic Damon line after Vicki runs away following a tutorial in how to speed around


You confuse me for someone with remorse. - Damon's cold and callous response to Elena upon discovering Vicki's dead (again) body, which turned out to be a lie after he came to Elena's aide with Jeremy

Damons "Dude?" line is amazing in itself but only makes you laugh out loud when followed by "Oh come on, who's gonna miss this idiOt?!"
Ian is just perfection when he gives us a line in a way that is beyond the words in it - the way he says anything just makes it awesome.

I love this show more and more every week, I always thought it would be pretty bad but I love it!This episode really got past the fantasy stuff and has started to go deeper into the characters relationships and emotions. I nearly cried during the scene when Elena and Stephen are on the porch while Damon 'erases' Jeremy's memory. Damon does have emotion. Naww.
Plus it looks like Elena and Stephen are mighty close to getting back together. I hope so... :)

I totally think Damon stole this episode. Sure, Vicki's death was big, but Damon's wit completely captivated me this episode. And I agree, gruenblatt, I think that line works much better when you realize it's Damon saying, "Are you really gonna call me dude, cause I'll kill you, 'dude'." and then Stefan telling him not to kill him. Priceless!! XDD

I love Damon as well, he was my favourite character in the books and I'm glad they're starting to show his other side in the show now :) To be honest, I didn't really like Vicki...she annoyed me this episode so I was kinda glad they killed her off but I definitely was not expecting it!
