Vampire Diaries : The One Where EVERYTHING Happens!

vampirediaries_claireholt_iansomerhalder

O.M.G. This is the week! Everything I’ve ever wanted to happen in Vampire Diaries happens (warning, a ton of SPOILERS to follow): Katherine’s returned, Jeremy dies, and Silas has risen! Okay, so I didn’t really want Jeremy to die, but it did tug at my heartstrings when he did. So let’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, revealing…DUN DUN DUNNN! There’s only ONE cure.

And of course, we all know (and so do the other characters), that everyone’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 she’s the only one who wants it for herself more than for Elena. For those of you who aren’t TVD aficionados, you can break other vampires’ necks and it just puts them out for a hot minute. When Stefan comes to, Elena goes on yet another “woe is me that everyone wants to help me and dies and stuff” monologue. And then realizing how there’s literally a million other things going on besides her feelings she says “Pity party over”, 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 “Yay! Come help us.” And Elena keeps insisting on raising Silas, so they begin to get suspicious. Then Elena feeds Jeremy to Silas! And you’re like WTF Elena?! Until you figure out it’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 week’s episode, because literally every family member she has is DEAD. Except Katherine… 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 Tyler’s mom wasn’t enough, Klaus wants to go after him directly. The Klaus-Caroline-Tyler triangle is everyone’s new favorite, because despite how much he’s into Caroline, Klaus still does ratchet things whenever he feels like it. Go to Urban Dictionary if you don’t know what “ratchet” means. A picture of Klaus may appear. Tangent over. So Caroline begs Klaus to be merciful towards Tyler, and they have this “tender eye contact” moment and he’s like “Yeah, I’ll let him get a head start”. So Tyler has to leave and hide, which depresses me to NO END. Why can’t Caroline have her cake and eat it too? Like, we all want “Klaroline” to happen, but not necessarily at the expense of having Tyler leave. Can’t they find Tyler a new gf that’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 Jeremy’s gone, can we get a new witch and boot Bonnie? Check out next’s week recap for the episode “Stand By Me”!

    Amazing review!
    But seriously, Jeremy can’t be dead omaaaaaaagoddd (this is like the french way to pronounce OMG because I’m Belgian, so my english is kinda horrific). Anyway, I was getting really reallyy tired with this whole “Elena loves Damon who thinks she’s sired to him because she actually loves stefan and stefan wants her to be human because he loves her and so do Damon but he preferes her as a vampire” thing (did I improve my skills in English? yeaaah can’t wait for each episode to get translated so I kinda watch the original version).
    But jeremy can’t be dead, can he? I didn’t even cry, you know? I thought it wdn’t be possible! And ARRGGGH I love Klaus *_* or Klaroline (but at the same time, I don’t want them to get together because I like Tyler as well, it’s hard, isn’t it?)

    A HUGE HUGE TVD FAN FROM BELGIUM WHO APOLOGIZES for her dreadful (does this word exist?) english…
    Kisses
    Kusjes (that’s dutch)
    Bisouuuuus (that’s french)

      thanks for the love, Picky-girl! I’ll be posting every Friday :) I suspect that Klaroline WILL be happening soon!

  • Kat

    This review was on the mark except for all the Elena bashing. Leave the girl alone!

      I find vampire Elena very annoying. She was albeit slightly more confident as a human. It really just feels like she is whining or panicking all the time. She should be more confident now,,, if her car ever goes over the Wickery Bridge again, she doesn’t have to worry about dying.

    • Ruby L

      Agreed, Dang3rm0u53. I think she needs to take a cue from Caroline and become empowered with the whole vampire transformation. Instead, it’s like her self-pitying traits have been amplified. Let’s see if she becomes a good girl gone bad now that Jeremy’s gone!

    • Ruby L

      Hi Kat, I promise I’ll get off Elena’s case the next couple weeks. I’ve just been frustrated with how much she’s always pitying herself for being responsible for what other people are doing, instead of taking action. Now that she’s a vampire, she needs to be like Caroline and become awesome.

  • cheri

    It is going to be really sad if Jeremy does die. I was hoping they would turn him into a vampire so he survives or maybe he is wearing his ring. I was so shocked to see Katherine come out of nowhere. This episode was awesome but I wasn’t able to watch it until this weekend since I was working my shift at DISH on Thursday. With the DISH Hopper I am able to record up to six shows at once during prime time hours, which helps with all my shows I love. I can watch them all and not worry about any DVR conflicts with any of my shows.

    • Ruby L

      Cheri, Katherine’s return means much more trouble for Mystic Falls and I can’t wait to see what she does next. But she did make me really mad sacrificing Jeremy. One can only hope Jeremy will come back some way…

  • Amy

    Fanastic review! Doesn’t Jeremy still wear that magic ring? I would really prefer that they kill off Tyler because he is super annoying and I very much want Klaroline to happen.

    Sidebar: how many vampires do you think died after Kol was killed? I mean, obviously this show glosses over the ridiculous amount of people that go “missing” or die from “animal attacks” in Mystic Falls, but if around the world hundreds of random people all shriveled up and turned to ash because they were vampires and their Original died…. wouldn’t this be, like, a BIG DEAL?

    • Ruby L

      Thank you, Amy! God, I hope the ring was on, but according to spoilers I’ve been hearing Elena is going through a LOT of grief, so all hope may be lost in that case.

      Interesting point about Kol. Only people he had actually turned and not just killed would have died, so maybe he wasn’t big into creating other vampires?
