Logic Fails From Vampire Diaries Season 3, Episode 14, “Dangerous Liaisons”
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 14, “Dangerous Liaisons.”
Kol keeps his cool; Finn doesn’t flinch If you thought Rebekah (Claire Holt) picked up how to text message quickly, she’s downright dimwitted compared to her Original brothers Kol (Nathanial Buzolic) and Finn (Caspar Zafer). Those boys barely raised an eyebrow at how the world had changed in over a century and 900 years, respectively. Sure, it’s possible Kol had seen electric lighting — though it certainly wasn’t exactly in every home when he was daggered. But come on, Finn. Just because you got rid of the Jesus haircut doesn’t mean you should welcome indoor plumbing, wireless technology, and that miraculous material known as plastic without batting an eyelash. How did the dude not flip his lid when he heard about airplanes?
Caroline needs a new frock We wouldn’t have even bothered to check our closet before slipping into the gorgeous gown Klaus (Joseph Morgan) sent Caroline (Candice Accola), but the fact that the blonde vamp stood looking forlornly at hers — which contained only three or four articles of clothing — before giving up was too much. She was Miss Mystic Falls, after all. (“I know.”) Unless she was just pretending to put up a fight for her audience of stuffed animals, she could’ve easily just worn something she already owned from any of the town’s 500 annual dances. Obviously Elena (Nina Dobrev) just happened to have a ball-worthy gown lying around. (Unless Elijah sent it to her, because he so has a huge crush.)
Originals only When Damon (Ian Somerhalder) threw Kol off the building, only the Originals — plus Elena and Stefan (Paul Wesley) — came running out to check on the commotion. “Don’t mind the ruckus on the lawn. It’s probably just the horses.” Speaking of which...
Horses, naturally What’s an Original ball without horses? Maybe they just had them around to remind Finn of the olden days, and they’re waiting until he’s been undaggered for more than three days to tell him about the existence of cars. Regardless, very random. And shouldn’t there have been a coachman or something? Ten bucks says some Mystic Falls High School students stumbled out of one their drunken woods parties and stole the carriage before the party was over.
Klaus vamp-draws Vampires are very fast runners and can zip across the room from the door to the bed in a blink of an eye (just look at Damon and Rebekah), but can they also speed draw? Obviously, because Caroline had barely gotten home from the ball when she realized Klaus had sent her a drawing of her and the horse she’d been hanging out with all party long. That just happened!
What’s on the back of this invitation? How many times do people look at the back of pieces of paper? When you get a handwritten invite, do you automatically flip it over to see if there is more writing on the back? Both Caroline and Elena did this, and there just so happened to be bonus notes included. Maybe Mayor Lockwood did too, only to see the blank back of the invite, but we’ll never know.
