Immortal by Gillian Shields Review

Okay, so along with finishing City of Bones over the weekend, I also had the chance to go down to the library and look to see if I wanted any books. I happened to come along this book and boy is it good!!
Wyldcliffe Abbey School for Young Ladies, housed in a Gothic mansion on the bleak northern moors, is elite, expensive, and unwelcoming. When Evie Johnson is torn away from her home by the sea to become the newest scholarship student, she is more isolated than she could have dreamed. Strict teachers, snobbish students, and the oppressive atmosphere of Wyldcliffe leave Evie drowning in loneliness.



Evie's only lifeline is Sebastian, a rebellious, mocking, dangerously attractive young man she meets by chance. As Evie's feelings for Sebastian grow with each secret meeting, she starts to fear that he is hiding something about his past. And she is haunted by glimpses of a strange, ghostly girl—a girl who is so eerily like Evie, she could be a sister. Evie is slowly drawn into a tangled web of past and present that she cannot control. And as the extraordinary, elemental forces of Wyldcliffe rise up like the mighty sea, Evie is faced with an astounding truth about Sebastian, and her own incredible fate.


Gillian Shields's electrifying tale will dazzle readers with suspense, mysticism, and romance. Harper Teen

At first, I expected it to be a vampire book because of the title (HELLO! Immortal, kinda tells it all, don't you think?) but after reading it, Immortal was just what the boy (Sebastian) was.
First of all, the book rushes wayy too fast. By time it hits page 200, Evie is uncontrollably in love with Sebastian and she doesn't know a thing about him! I mean, it's cute to see her find someone when no one else is there for her and that he cares for her as well but, come on, it was like two weeks until she finally fell in love with him!
The plot was good, confusing, but good. I liked how they switched from Evie's perspective to Agnes' journal entries. It two different persepectives but when it came to Sebastian (or S.), they seemed almost similiar.
The characters never truly progressed throughout the book but at the end, you are left with a cliff-hanger that I know will be fulfilled with the sequel, Betrayal:

I'm hoping that this series can make a big comeback with this next book but I'm sadly going to have to give Immortal a 2 and 1/2 mostly because of the fast pace to the point we don't get to see anyone progress, the love doesn't progress and seem less spontaneous, and see everything actually unravel.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Book 1 (Whole Review)


Suddenly able to see demons and the Shadowhunters who are dedicated to returning them to their own dimension, fifteen-year-old Clary Fray is drawn into this bizarre world when her mother disappears and Clary herself is almost killed by a monster. Google Book Result
Sadly, I couldn't go along with my reading schedule and I read the whole thing over this weekend. Sorry. It was so...AWESOME, I couldn't help but read it all. Please forgive me!
But, I will review the rest of wha I read! First off, I have to say that this book is truly messed up amazing. There are spoilers in this book that I had to drop my jaw at. I won't tell what they are but OH MY GOODNESS, I will say that I wished Jace and Clary could be together. I will also say that I am still iffie about Simon. I don't know what he wants from Clary, sometimes it seems as though he loves Clary and other times as though he doesn't. I'm glad they got on good terms with one another but now that I learned a certain new fact about Clary and Jace...or should I say Jonathan, I guess Simon and Clary should be together. Keyword: guess. The book was AH-mazing when it came to the plot line and the jaw-droppers and the action and tension but I was kind of disappointed at what was supposed to be the climax. To me, it was sort of a let down. I don't want to say a lot because I truly recommend you all reading this book series because it does give a lot of dips and turns and in all, it is a really great series. I am reading the next book, City of Ashes.

I give this book a four out of four nail polishes because of the amazing characters, the interesting plot, and the cliff-hanger ending. LOVED this book!


I have looked into it by the way and saw that the Mortal Instruments series will be turned into a movie! Can't wait for it and I'll try and keep you guys posted with this info!

Vampire Diaries: Season 1, Episode 19: Miss Mystic Falls

"ELENA AND CAROLINE COMPETE IN A BEAUTY PAGEANT – At the Founder’s Day Gala, Elena and Caroline compete for the title of “Miss Mystic Falls” against other girls from town, including Tina Fell (guest star Autumn Dial) and Amber Bradley. Elena is happy to have Bonnie back in town, but Bonnie still has issues to work through. John Gilbert attempts to intimidate Damon, but his plan doesn’t have the desired effect. Damon discovers that Stefan is hiding a dangerous secret that could impact everyone in town."
Source courtsey of Vampire-Diaries.net

Sadly I could not watch the full hour of the show because the stupid commercial told me 9 p.m. and after I made an AMAZING batch of brownies, I decided to turn to the CW to see what could possibly be on to knock it back and low and behold...they lied and it started at 8 p.m. I did watch the last half hour and got the jest of the episode.
I couldn't believe how out of control Stefan was, even with Elena trying to calm him down. I would think Elena could have him calm down seeing as how their in love but boyyy was I wrong with a capital "W".
Surprisingly, I was smiling when Damon and Elena were dancing. I really want the whole love triangle to start. Maybe it will with the season finale!
I was happy when Caroline won the pagent because she really needed it after her issues with love.
AND, BONNIE'S BACK!!!!!!!!!! I was extremely excited to see her back with the gang! And, she pulled out her magic mojo to alm down Stefan, which he needed to be.
This episode was left off with Elena injecting Stefan with a tranquilizer and Damon brought him back into the cellar. I thought it was cute how Damon asked Elena if she was going back upstairs and once she said she was staying down there, he sat across from her outside of Stefan's cell. You can tell there's something budding between the two of them and I haven't really seen any true romance between Stefan and Elena for awhile! Guess we'll have to see next week what happens! YAY!

The Mortal Instruments, Book One: City of Bones--Part 1

Before I start this post, I would like to say that I'm emailing Beth Fantaskey right now for my first "Author of the Month Interview"! I'm incredibly excited and can't wait! She's emailed me back and has agreed to answer any questions I have. She has written the book, Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side, and is coming out with her new book, Jekel Loves Hyde! Please email me with any questions you might want to ask her by this Thursday when I will send her my email and have her reply to your question! There is no limit on how many questions to ask but be reasonable! You can email me at blacknailedreviews@gmail.com with your questions!

Okay, so I've read the WHOLE first part of City of Bones and I'm back with you all to get this review on the road.
First off, we have to review what exactly happened. So, Clary and her best friend, Simon, go off to Pandemonium where Clary witnesses a murder by Jace, Isabelle, and Alec. It would have been better if one: someone else would have seen, two: the guy they killed wasn't a demon, and three: that they weren't all Shadowhunters. She get's in a fight with her mom the next day because her mom wants them to move out to the country for the rest of the summer. Her mom's best friend, Luke, leaves because he doesn't want to stay in the argument...apparently. Clary leaves with Simon to go to his band mate's poetry slam. She sees Jace there and follows him once he leaves. Her mother then calls and tells her she loves her and not to come home, then she hangs up. Clary, of course, goes back to her apartment where the light is out in the front but still she moves on. Another demon tries to kill her but she kills it by jabbing it in the throat with a Sensor she stole from Jace. She is hurt and Jace rescues her and takes her back to a Cathedral where it is invisible but still in the city. I think. She recovers but once to go back to her apartment to see what's left. Hodge, the leader of Jace and the others, decides it's okay for her to go, but only with Jace along with her. She reluctantly agrees and they go off to her apartment. They run into a giant who tries and kill Jace and Clary but Jace soon kills him. Dorothea, Clary's apartment neighbor, sees the kill and seems to know some stuff about the Downworld and Shawdowhunters. She tells them to come in and have some tea where they disect Jace's tea leaves and soon go in to another dimension. Jace and Clary leave and go to Luke's house to see if they can get information. They run into Simon who tells them that he's been trying to look for Clary for the past couple of days and went to Luke's to see what's up but he didn't tell a whole lot. Simon also says he saw Luke packing up weapons into a duffel bag. They sneak into Luke's house but find out his real name is Lucian and that he knows where Clary's mom went and why. He tells two other people, Blackwell and Pangborn, that he's getting out of town and laying low. However, Blackwell and Pangborn are the ones who killed Jace's father. They go back to the Institute (with Simon) and tell Hodge everything as Simon drools over Isabelle. Jace never tells Hodge about B & P. Hodge tells Jace and Clary that he was in the Circle as well as the Lightwoods (Isabelle's family) and a couple others that they know. Hodge says that Valentine lead the group. Clary asks what does that have to do with her mother and Hodge replies that "because she was Valentine's wife."

Okay, I've got goosebumps! I would have never assumed Valentine was her mother's HUSBAND until the last page! I stood back and had to say aloud a "Whaaaaat?!" I mean, how could you not?!
Besides that, Jace and Clary's relationship seems to be budding. I love Jace because he's tough and it truly seems like he wants to be with her in some ways. Like the way he saved her and defends her and all that. It's cute. However, I never liked Simon surprisingly. I would have expected it to be the other way around but I can't STAND Simon. He's so sarcastic and we all know what he was going to tell Clary during the Poetry Slam, that he likes her, but what a way to show it by drooling over the most obviously beautiful girl! So, Simon is not good in my books, as of now!
I am sort of confused with the Shadowhunters, the Downworlders, and what Valentine is trying to do but I think I'll grasp it by the end of this book.
Right now, I do like this series, it doesn't have vampires or werewolves...well, they just mention them, but it's a good book series that doesn't need vampire sor werewolves to be good. I love the first section to death!
Tell me what you think of City of Bones, so far!
We are now on the first section of the second part. Reading from page 150 to 300 by next Tuesday!

Vampire Dairies--Season 1, Episode 18: "Under Control"

Sadly, I'm too busy to describe in detail about how I thought this week's of Vampire Diaries was, but I will say before I copy and paste the details of it that this episode wasn't as eventful oher than Stefan's err..."tendencies". It also kind of reminded me of Twilight just a tiny bit. That's all I'm saying! Here's the overview of this week's episode:
"Stefan still hasn’t fully recovered from his brush with death and the evil that was infused in him. He has moments where he becomes a completely different person, one that has no moral judgments, but just acts on pure animalistic instinct. When this inner-demon comes out of him, there is no controlling it. He’s lucky if he can snap back in time before he does damage, particularly when Elena’s around and exposed to this part of him. Meanwhile, Jeremy is still having trouble accepting Vicki’s death. It has been ruled as an overdose, but he can’t let go of the fact that she was buried. Someone had to have buried her and Jeremy suspects this person also murdered her. He suspects that Elena might know something that she isn’t telling him and he finds out just what this is.

For the past couple of weeks the antagonists have been the freed vampires. None of them make an appearance in this week’s episode and there appears to be a new enemy in town: John Gilbert, Elena’s uncle. Not only is he a great annoyance to Elena, Jeremy, and their Aunt Jenna, but he appears to be a real threat to all vampires in town and is specifically targeting Damon. Damon has done a good job of keeping the evidence of vampire inhabitance down and even befriending the sheriff and making the council fall in love with him. John Gilbert has charmed the council himself, being a beloved descendant of the town’s original founders. John doesn’t just know far too much about Damon, Alaric, Isobel, Katherine, and every other vampire that has been around since the original vampire outbreak, but he is strangely immune to them. He essentially rises from the dead, clearly having great power and keeping it a mystery just what he plans on doing with this power.
It really is for the best that Stefan got kidnapped, tortured, and had the evil force fed to him; it makes him a far more wildly interesting character. He has been developed and made a bit more dynamic as the series has gone on. Still, this pulls him in an extremely intriguing direction. As Damon notes of the drunken dancing Stefan, “Have I entered an alternate universe where Stefan is fun?” For the past century, Stefan has been able to suppress his urges and keep everything locked in. Even when it has been difficult, he always stayed in control. That has changed now; his urges are more powerful than he is. It has finally got to the point where he can’t deny what he is, the hunger has changed him. He even tries Damon’s method of drinking away his problems with alcohol, but of course that does nothing. Stefan begins to fear being around Elena.
While Elena is concerned with Stefan, Damon takes it upon himself to up the flirtation while helping Elena. When Elena isn’t around Damon, she’s with Matt. The two have good energy and chemistry together, but do seem a bit too close for an ex-boyfriend and girlfriend at times. Most of the material was engaging and this seems natural. The other vampires, Bonnie, and Caroline were all missing from the episode. Caroline’s absence was actually explained, but it has been quite some time since Bonnie was around, which seems a little weird. I don’t know if they’re just lacking storylines for her, but this doesn’t seem like this should be the case since they essentially combined the characters of Bonnie and Meredith from the book in creating Bonnie’s character in the show. Between these two character’s storylines, background, and everything the character in the show is going through with her grandmother and mentor’s death makes it seem like there should be plenty of storylines available. She is a big part of what’s going on and it would be good to see her back on the show.
The dynamic between him and Stefan is more give and take, something that has been building up for a number of episodes. It makes sense since they have so many common enemies and both care a great deal about Elena and keeping the secret of their nature under wraps. Of course, Damon still wittily eggs Stefan on, encouraging him to give in to his inner nature forcing its way out. He even simply tells him to get blood from a blood bank, very different from the more vicious taunting where Damon tried to get Stefan to be more beastly and powerful. Damon is less of an antagonist while still being snarky, aggressive, and determined. This is simply because there is plenty of other enemies and problems threatening their eternal lifestyle, causing them to band together." Horror Yearbook

Darkest Powers Series

Okay, so after flipping through a US Weekly magazine, my sister came upon a book ad that just said "Falls in love with a werewolf. Magical powers. Yadda, yadda, yadda." Of course, my sister shows me the ad and says "This is PERFECT for you!" After looking over the series and summaries, she's right! It IS perfect for me. I haven't read the series yet but once I am done reading my Sylvia Plath biography and the City of Bones (yes, I'm trying to get into that series, too), I will start on the Darkest Powers series.

It seems as the series is about a girl named Chloe who has special powers with ghosts. She get's instituitionalized because of an outburst and meets people like Liz, Rae, Derek, and Simon. She soon falls in love with a werewolf and discovers what her powers truly are.

There are three books to the series: The Summoing (Book 1), The Awakening (Book 2), and The Reckoning (Book 3). They all look good, I've read the synopsis of all three and I'll post them for you right now, just read the first if you don't want any spoilers!

The Summoning:

A well-written opening to a paranormal series. Chloe, 15, has the ability to see dead people, but before she can figure out what is happening, she has a breakdown, is diagnosed with schizophrenia, and placed in a group home. She befriends some of the teens at Lyle House and tries to accept her treatment. However, two of her more mysterious housemates suggest that maybe she isn't crazy. Derek tells her to look up necromancy on the Internet, and she finds out that it's the ability to communicate with the spirits of the dead. He appears to have superstrength, and his foster brother has magical powers. Chloe's roommate, who causes things to fly around the room when she becomes angry, is taken away to a hospital and never heard from again. When she returns in Chloe's visions, Chloe suspects foul play, a misgiving confirmed when the dead speak to her again and reveal that they were "supernaturals" who were experimented on, killed, and buried in the home's basement many years before. Together with her new friends, Chloe escapes Lyle House, only to be betrayed. This suspenseful novel sets up a secret underworld where some people support and help supernaturals, while others persecute them. Armstrong combines bits of horror, teen relationships, and a dash of mystery to create a page-turner. Readers will look forward to the next installment. Amazon
The Awakening:
The Reckoning:
They all sound pretty good, I'm thinking of doing a chapter by chapter, book by book thing with them on here. And, probably do the same with The Mortal Instruments series starting on Thursday. So, grab the City of Bones novel, the first one of the Mortal Instruments series, it looks like this:
Chloe’s a teenager who likes Simon, but maybe likes Derek, and definitely hates Tori, who crushes on Simon, who kind of cares for Chloe. Sounds pretty typical. Except that Chloe’s a necromancer, Derek’s a werewolf, and Simon and Tori are sorcerers. Following The Summoning (2008), this book in the Darkest Powers series has the teens on the run from a shady organization whose murky involvement with their manifesting powers is unclear, but definitely not for their betterment. There’s nothing terribly original here, but Armstrong has some fun toying with supernatural teen thriller conventions, and the taut pacing should please fans of the exploding genre. Amazon

My name is Chloe Saunders. I'm fifteen, and I would love to be normal.

But normal is one thing I'm not.
For one thing, I'm having these feelings for a certain antisocial werewolf and his sweet-tempered brother—who just happens to be a sorcerer—but, between you and me, I'm leaning toward the werewolf.
Not normal.
My friends and I are also on the run from an evil corporation that wants to get rid of us—permanently.
Definitely not normal.
And finally, I'm a genetically altered necro-mancer who can raise the dead, rotting corpses and all, without even trying.
As far away from normal as it gets. Barnes & Noble

And here's the synopsis of the book!:
Join me back here to start reading these two new series with me! :)
When Clary Fray witnesses three tattoo-covered teenagers murder another teen, she is unable to prove the crime because the victim disappears right in front of her eyes, and no one else can see the killers. She learns that the teens are Shadowhunters (humans who hunt and kill demons), and Clary, a mundie (i.e., mundane human), should not be able to see them either. Shortly after this discovery, her mother, Jocelyn, an erstwhile Shadowhunter, is kidnapped. Jocelyn is the only person who knows the whereabouts of The Mortal Cup, a dangerous magical item that turns humans into Shadowhunters. Clary must find the cup and keep it from a renegade sector of Shadowhunters bent on eliminating all nonhumans, including benevolent werewolves and friendly vampires. Amid motorcycles powered by demon energies, a telepathic brotherhood of archivists, and other moments of great urban fantasy, the story gets sidetracked by cutesy touches, like the toasted bat sandwich on the menu of an otherworldly restaurant. The characters are sporadically characterized and tend toward behavior that is both predictable and slightly repellent–Clary finds out who her real father is about 200 pages after readers will have it figured out. Despite the narrative flaws, this version of New York, full of Buffyesque teens who are trying to save the world, is entertaining and will have fantasy readers anxiously awaiting the next book in the series.

Review: Goth Girl Rising by Barry Lyga

So, I went to the library the other day and grabbed a few books. One of them was this book: Goth Girl Rising. It's the sequel to the Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl. I haven't read the first but I saw this on the shelf and I've been eyeing the series to read it but never got the chance, so I basically pounced on it even though it is the sequel.
So, some background on the story:
After starting to read this book, I got the idea of three things. One, Kyra has a very destructive life. Two, there's something going on with her feelings for Fanboy. And, three, I should have read the first book. Apparently it's one of those books where it doesn't review that much of the first book, which I sometimes like because I don't have to spend the first half reviewing the first book...but I don't like it when I haven't read the first book. :( I did like the book, however. Even though the writing and sentence structures weren't their best, I loved how Lyga made the characters lovable but hated as well. For example, I love Kyra to death because of how outspoken she is and she truly does have deep feelings and emotions, but I didn't like how she was so rude to the ones she loved and how she didn't watch what she said. She pushed her dad, heer friends, and even Fanboy. And, the choices she made, ugh! It was like nails to a chalkboard, I couldn't stand it!
Time is a funny thing in the hospital. In the mental ward. You lose track of it easily. After six months in the Maryland Mental Health Unit, Kyra Sellers, a.k.a. Goth Girl, is going home. Unfortunately, she's about to find out that while she was away, she lost track of more than time. Kyra is back in black, feeling good, and ready to make up with the only person who's ever appreciated her for who she really is. But then she sees him. Fanboy. Transcended from everything he was into someone she barely recognizes. And the anger and memories come rushing back. There's so much to do to people when you're angry. Kyra's about to get very busy. Amazon

The plot was good, not riveting but good. It was kind of like other teen problems: people change, drugs, sex, etc. I wasn't totally blown away from it. I didn't love how long it took and how the plot was dragged throughout the book and there wasn't any big blowout other than with Kyra and her father and when she was...well, I won't say what happened with Kyra. But, something somewhat big. But, the plot didn't blow me away! Neither did the ending, I actually felt like there should be a third because it was left, so...so OPEN! Ugh, it's was so...I don't know! Everything was left unsaid...or undone! Something had to happen and NOTHING DID! I checked around and so far I've seen that there probably won't be a third from this interview with Amazon that Barry Lyga had:

Q: Are you done with Fanboy and Goth Girl or are there more stories to tell?

A: You know, that's a tough question to answer. When I started thinking about writing Goth Girl Rising, I was nervous because people loved that first book so much--I didn't want to write something that would be a disappointment to them. The sequel had to be a better story than the original, in my mind. That's the standard I hold myself to when writing a follow-up--it has to be better than the original. So, I guess if I came up with a story better than Goth Girl Rising, I would write it. But honestly, I think the end of the sequel is a great place to leave the characters.
So, for those of you like me who are left wondering what will happen between Fanboy (whose now named "Don") and Kyra, I'm sad to say there will be no third book. I think we should all E-mail Mr. Lyga and tell him "MORE!" But, until he decides to do so, we will have to be left with a relationship cliff hanger! UGH!

I give the book a three and half black nail polishes because I DON'T LIKE RELATIONSHIP CLIFF-HANGERS! That's why! :)

Vampire Diaries, Episode 1.17: "Let The Right One In"

Sorry, for not posting all this week or mostly posting about the first new episodes of Vampire Diaries since March 25th. I know, shame on me! Completely shameful, but I have been watching and I'm getting back in the game of blogging again so me and you as my readers can make since of this show right now.

Okay, so the set-up for this week's episode was mostly over that the awaken vampires are reaking havoc amongst the town and they have also captured Elena's beloved Stefan.
The beginning of the episode was pretty, um, shocking. Okay, I admit for last week's episode I was a little too busy watching New Moon again for the last few minutes, so I didn't know Jeremey was being stupid and asking Anna to turn him. Stupid! I did know Fedrick wanted revenge for Beth Anne's death against Stefan and Damon. I was surprised that Pearl knew about his revenge seeking and just told him what was at steak, no pun intended...okay, a little bit. So, that leaves us off wondering if he'll go through with it.
So, we go on with the show and as everyone has basically started boarding up their houses and locking windows (like that'll do anything), Stefan decides then to go out and run to get some energy back. As he's running, he's taken by Fedrick and his crew...what a coincidence.
When Damon and Elena learn Stefan might be in trouble, Damon goes down and tries to save him but Fedrick compelled sweet little old Ms. Gibbons to not invite Damon in. He decides to go to Alaric who doesn't truly know if he wants to save a vampire when he always kills them. It is better than Elena going and he soon agrees to go with Damon after Damon says "hell to the no" when Elena chirps up about her wanting to save her man.
We than see Stefan being tortured by Fedrick and his crew and see that Harper, my new favorite, doesn't agree with torturing him. Fedrick soon ties him up in response as well. I thought I wouldn't like Harper at first, but he's growing on me and he might even be allies with Stefan and Damon to save his butt and because he's a good guy!
Next, we finally get to see the break in happen when Alaric goes up to the front porch and tells Fedrick his car has broken down a few miles up and needed to use the phone. One of Fedrick's followers decides to show him in the kitchen, but once in the kitchen, he stabs him with a steak and turns on the sink as well as the food processor to talk with Ms. Gibbons. He opens the kitchen door and tells her to let his friend in, she declines because of the compulsion and Damon has her step outside. He asks her if there is anyone else besides her that lives in the house or in her family and she says no and he cricks her neck in response. He lets himself in and soon they go all badass and fight off most of the vampires and go find Stefan. While they fight crime, Elena decides that this is taking to long and that she should go look herself without any vampire protection. Okay...good? She goes into what looks like an old basement to find Stefan and Harper tied up. She unties them when Damon walks in and tells them to go while he distracts the rest of the vampires.
After Damon kills the rest of the vampires, Fedrick gets away and starts to beat up Stefan, not truly realizing the only real way to get to Stefan is to hurt Elena. Fedrick gives enough blows to Stefan to knock him out before Elena stabs Fedrick in the back with a steak. He drops and she tries waking Stefan which he doesn't resurface any time soon. Finally, he does and Elena makes him drink from her to help him out, he relents but soon decides to drink. Fedrick isn't dead and goes after Stefan but Stefan vamps out and stabs him repeatedly with a steak. Elena tries to stop him but he pushes her away and finally after she keeps trying to stop him, he devamps and stops.
Back at the Mystic Grill, Jeremey and Anna talk about turning him and he pleads his case by saying that he doesn't feel like he fits in and he thinks being a vampire will help him break that. She says he hasn't fit the criteria yet of being turned because vampires turn you when: they want revenge, are bored, do dirty work, or they are completely in love with them. Jeremey says he likes her but she retaliates by saying it is because she's a vampire but he says he geniunely likes her. When Pearl comes to pick her up, she notices Jeremey but is distracted once Mayor Lockwood and Tyler show up. Mayor flirts with Pearl and ask if they can "hang" for a few. As they do so, Jeremey and Anna text back and forth as Pearl notices, she soon finds out that Jeremey is a Gilbert and takes Anna into the bathroom where she tells ehr she can not see him because he might find out what they are. Anna tells her he already knows and he likes her anyways. Pearl smacks Anna and as they leave the bathroom, Anna texs Jeremey that she will change him.
Earlier in the episode, Caroline discovers body when her care truly breaks down and tries to look for service. She soon arrives at Matt's house with the sheriff. They all soon find out that Vicki's body has been discovered and she is dead. Jeremey and Tyler soon find out and go to Matt's house as well. Matt sits in Vicki's room and tells Caroline he wants to be alone before Elena walks in and he embraces her before breaking down. Caroline is upset by this and is left standing in there like a sad puppy. Poor Caroline.
Once Elena and Jeremey return home, she asks him if he is okay. He quickly says he's fine and decides to go to bed. Once in his room, he starts tearnig up his research on vampires before landing on a newspaper where front page is over Vicki. Anna soon appears to turn him but see that Jeremey is upset. He tells her that they found Vicki's dead body and that she was always dead. She quickly sees that he only wanted her to change him so he could be with Vicki. When Jeremey tries to apologize, Anna has already disappeared.
At the end of the episode, we see Damon walking through the living room and seeing pouches of blood. He follows where they lead to and sees Stefan drinking from a puch shamefully. Some one forgot their morals!

For this episode I have a few questions:
Why is Jeremey still pawning over Vicki?
Will Jeremey reconcile with Anna?
What will happen with Stefan and his awakened thirst?
Will Damon ever become intimate with Elena?
And, where the hell is Bonnie?!
