O.M.G. This is the week! Everything Iâ€™ve ever wanted to happen in Vampire DiariesÂ happens (warning, a ton of SPOILERS to follow): Katherineâ€™s returned, Jeremy dies, and Silas has risen! Okay, so I didnâ€™t really want Jeremy to die, but it did tug at my heartstrings when he did. So letâ€™s back up: Professor Shane has kidnapped Bonnie and Jeremy because in order to find where Silas is buried they need a witch and a vampire hunter with the complete mark. Back in Mystic Falls, Caroline & Tyler find the sword written in some dead language that trapped Klaus helps them translate, revealingâ€¦DUN DUN DUNNN! Thereâ€™s only ONE cure.
And of course, we all know (and so do the other characters), that everyoneâ€™s gonna give it to Elena. So when Klaus tells Rebekah over the phone, she tells Stefan, breaks his neck, and runs after it on her own because sheâ€™s the only one who wants it for herself more than for Elena. For those of you who arenâ€™t TVD aficionados, you can break other vampiresâ€™ necks and it just puts them out for a hot minute. When Stefan comes to, Elena goes on yet another â€śwoe is me that everyone wants to help me and dies and stuffâ€ť monologue. And then realizing how thereâ€™s literally a million other things going on besides her feelings she says â€śPity party overâ€ť, and we all rejoice at her brief moment of self-awareness.
Bonnie and Jeremy, exhibiting all this couple-y sexual tension, ditch Shane to get the cure without freeing Silas. As they try to figure out how to release the cure without waking Silas, Elena shows up and they get so excited like â€śYay! Come help us.â€ť And Elena keeps insisting on raising Silas, so they begin to get suspicious. Then Elena feeds Jeremy to Silas! And youâ€™re like WTF Elena?! Until you figure out itâ€™s Katherine!!!! I wanted to rejoice at her return, but then she killed Jeremy! Come on, girl. Can you not ruin lives every time you appear? So now the real Elena will actually have a legitimate reason to feel sorry for herself in next weekâ€™s episode, because literally every family member she has is DEAD. Except Katherineâ€¦ Awkward. My hope is she goes into a dark phase and acts out by behaving badly, much like her sire, Damon.
On another note, Klaus is still holding a bitch fit over Tyler turning all his hybrids against him during the holidays. So since killing Tylerâ€™s mom wasnâ€™t enough, Klaus wants to go after him directly. The Klaus-Caroline-Tyler triangle is everyoneâ€™s new favorite, because despite how much heâ€™s into Caroline, Klaus still does ratchet things whenever he feels like it. Go to Urban Dictionary if you donâ€™t know what â€śratchetâ€ť means. A picture of Klaus may appear. Tangent over. So Caroline begs Klaus to be merciful towards Tyler, and they have this â€śtender eye contactâ€ť moment and heâ€™s like â€śYeah, Iâ€™ll let him get a head startâ€ť. So Tyler has to leave and hide, which depresses me to NO END. Why canâ€™t Caroline have her cake and eat it too? Like, we all want â€śKlarolineâ€ť to happen, but not necessarily at the expense of having Tyler leave. Canâ€™t they find Tyler a new gf thatâ€™s prettier than that random Hayley?
I hope next week is full of catfights now that we have Rebekah, Elena, Caroline, AND Katherine in the same episode. I actually do feel sorry for a second now that Elena is totally alone. Klaroline BETTER happen if they had to make Tyler leave. And now that Jeremyâ€™s gone, can we get a new witch and boot Bonnie? Check out nextâ€™s week recap for the episode â€śStand By Meâ€ť!
