    The whole compulsion thing gives Stefan an easy out for when he inevitably reforms. He couldn’t help it! He was compelled! It wasn’t his fault! It’s too much like the issue of the “soul” in the Buffyverse, and frankly I’m pretty bored with that metaphysical loophole. Instead of Angelus the Soulless Bastard, we have Stefan the Mindless Automaton. This is why I loved Battlestar Galactica. Even the Cylons had free will. I am right there with you and the Damon/Elena arc is boring me already. I like Damon evil with a side of drunken psychopath and a smattering of good works. Elena likes her vampires leashed. Loser.

    Oh, well, it’s a good thing this show is so entertaining. It would irritate me a lot more if it dragged, too.

      Yes, it does move at a breakneck pace. Which certainly keeps it entertaining, even if I don’t always agree with the direction.
