'The Vampire Diaries' recap: Elijah's moral compass cracks, Elena finds herself in a (loop)hole


Fair warning: I didn't actually like tonight's episode of "The Vampire Diaries", titled "All My Children." It should definitely be noted that in a broad sense, this was still a great episode of television, but it didn't live up to the standards we've come to expect of this show.There were two major problems. First of all, a lack of satisfying follow-up after the mess Elena left behind her last week made for a rough start. I'm very happy that she's showing signs of weakness and I'm glad that she's feeling like a real, flawed character as opposed to some perfect paradigm of girl-next-door compassion. The problem is that it's not enough for the writers and the audience to acknowledge her flaws. At this point, I need Stefan and, most importantly, Damon to get genuinely angry at her. There has to be follow-through when she hurts someone, just as there's follow through when someone else disappoints...
