Let me start by telling you they still havenâ€™t found The Cure on The Vampire Diaires. I know. What the hell are we still watching for? There are way too many filler episodes. Give us something that is actually happening instead of an entire episode of more backstory. We get it, Shane is creepy; he is the secret villain. Now let him go be villainous so the show can move on. We all know they canâ€™t be cured or else The Vampire Diaries isnâ€™t an appropriate title. And itâ€™ll be too weird if only SOME of them take it and others donâ€™t. Why would you make yourself a mortal and give others, particularly any enemies, the advantage of being able to kill you?
Somewhere along the line, Iâ€™ve really begun to get over Elena, and while many have been into Caroline as the showâ€™s new It Girl, I think Rebekah is the dark horse in this race. We all relate WAY too much when she acts out and does crazy shit when sheâ€™s mad, and are constantly won over by her heartfelt confessions about the pain behind her actions. This episode sealed the deal when she told Stefan that she and Elena arenâ€™t that different; they both sacrifice for the people they love. When Elena does it, it looks like heroism, but when Rebekah does it, she is always accused of cruelty. Iâ€™d call having to live 1000 years with every 9 out of 10 boyfriends dying a cruel life. Rebekah is awesome for all the shit sheâ€™s dealt with. Her family and â€śfriendsâ€ť repeatedly stab her to get her out of the way. All the guys she loves either die or like someone else. Being 17 wasnâ€™t too bad for me, but having to feel that way for 10 centuries cannot be okay. She doesnâ€™t apologize for what she does, and why would she have to? Whereas Elena acts all â€śI feel so guiltyâ€ť but then screws everyone else over to stay alive anyways, at least Rebekah is honest and says â€śIf you donâ€™t die, I will. So guess whoâ€™s dying?â€ť
Okay, Rebekah versus Elena rant over. While Elena and the gang are â€śInto the Wildâ€ť as the episodeâ€™s title so subtly implies, Klaus is stuck in the Gilbertsâ€™ house seething over his brother Kolâ€™s death. Iâ€™m really excited, because when Klaus gets sad, he gets reckless, and I want to watch him get all â€śBane on Gotham Cityâ€ť and wreak havoc all over Mystic Falls. Tyler comes to laugh at him being stuck, and of course Caroline is in the middle trying to make them play nice. And all of a sudden, Klaus gives Caroline a WEREWOLF BITE! WTF, Klaus? Arenâ€™t you like, in LOVE with her? If a guy gave me the supernatural equivalent of a fatal rabies bite, I might get the message heâ€™s not that into me. So we sit through these random lengths of time as Klaus gloats in having bitten Caroline, acting as if heâ€™s doing really well at playing â€śhard to getâ€ť and then Caroline blows his mind by telling him sheâ€™s knows heâ€™s love in with her. Oh, you thought you were slick, Klaus. Boom, roasted. Then Caroline almost dies, and like the 15 year old girl that Klaus actually is, when heâ€™s about to lose her he goes running back to her and gives her his blood to save her. Pathetic. Which is actually what Tyler actually calls him at the beginning of the episode, so props to you for knowing that from the start, Mr. Lockwood.
Next week, I need to see this â€śSilasâ€ť, the first immortal being who can bring back all the dead people back to life. My prediction? Silas will bring these people alive, giving the show a bajillion characters to use in different storylines, but there will be no cure buried with Silas. Or if there is, it will somehow be destroyed. Or expired. What if the Cure is like a gallon of milk? That ainâ€™t gonna last 1000 years, homie. Some questions Iâ€™m left with for next week: Where were Matt and his abs this week? Jeremy was shirtless for 10 seconds and I wanted to puke.Â Can Shane die next week? Iâ€™m over him. Can we start doing TVD promos with Rebekah and the Salvatore Brothers instead of Elena? Will we ever get a witch (preferably Sabrina, the Teenage Witch) to be Bonnieâ€™s buddy? Can they get rid of Bonnieâ€™s dad? Heâ€™s like the buzzkill at an awesome party. And please, can the Cure be discovered next week so we can all move on with our mortal lives?
