The Biggest Logic Fails in The Vampire Diaries Season 3, Episode 5: “The Reckoning”
The Vampire Diaries is a show where witches can bring back people from the dead, vampires kiss humans instead of ripping their throats out, and werewolves have silky smooth chests when they haven’t transformed. And we accept all of this without the blink of the eye. Yet it’s the little things that make us scoff and say, “That would never happen.” Check out the biggest logic fails from Season 3, Episode 5, “The Reckoning.”
4. Matt = The Uninvited We know his new bestie was locked in a trunk for a fair part of this episode and wouldn’t be participating in Senior Prank Night anyway, but did no one else think to call Matt for the festivities? The poor guy was all alone working on his biceps and tri-delts when he heard strange noises. Forgetting that he lived in Mystic Falls, the murder capitol of the world, he went to investigate. Don’t worry, it’s not a killer, just all your best friends hanging out without you. Sad trombone noise.
3. Klaus is compelling Look, we know that high schoolers can be gullible and it’s somewhat believable that they’d scatter at an adult telling them they’ve been busted, but no one challenged Klaus? Really? Because we feel like there’s usually that one obnoxious kid who would’ve asked, “Who are you? A new teacher?” so that Klaus could’ve ripped his face off or something. Plus, why was Klaus using his American accent? The British one sounds so much more authoritative.
2. Mystic Falls High has a swimming pool? At this point, TVD really needs to have an episode exploring the nooks and crannies of Mystic Falls High School. For a building that gets so rarely used, it’s certainly pretty large if it has an indoor swimming pool. It probably has a Sunnydale High School-caliber library, state-of-the-art scientific laboratory, and Forbes family-style torture dungeon. And considering there were roughly 12 seniors at prank night, we just don’t see why they don’t just downgrade to a one-room schoolhouse.
1. Rebekah didn’t say “the bee’s knees” once We weren’t alive back in the ‘20s when it was all speakeasies and flapper dresses, but Rebekah seems to have adjusted to modern times really quickly. Shouldn’t she have been saying things like, “Hey, dame; this horn’s the cat’s pajamas. It must’ve cost you a few clams. Now be a good egg and scram, ya bearcat.” We’re still confused about how she managed to zoom in on that photo of Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) necklace so easily. Technological genius!
