Wassup, guys! It’s that time again – Vampire Diaries! Sorry I’m so late with this review; between work, school, and chasing trick-or-treaters off of my lawn, I’ve had ZERO time to do anything else. But I’m here now! Alright so, Thursday night’s episode of VD was alright. A little more than alright, it was VERY alright. What I mean is, it wasn’t bad, it wasn’t great, it was… meh. It slowed the INTENSE momentum this season seems to have been aiming for and it didn’t really do much to further the entire story along. It was mainly there to clean up the mess Bonnie made last week, bring back some awesome characters only to have them snatched cruelly away once again, and show us, yet again, that the Lockwood’s old ‘cellar’ (read: slave quarters) are much, much more than just that.
And also to have that terrible relationship that was Bonnie and Jeremy come to a dramatic (not really) end. Finally.
Let’s get started y’all !
o o o
So we start off with Damon chained to a chair with a poker stuck through his chest. He’s grumbling and groggy and in pain when Stefan finds him. Stefan’s reaction was strange? I mean, I get why they made him react like he did (to show off his ‘I’m a d-bag’ factor) but seeing Damon like this in their own home points toward a very big security breech, no? Whoever did this to Damon could very well do it to Stefan, but Stefan doesn’t seem worried. He swaggers up to Damon, pulls the poker out, pulls one (?) of the chains off of his wrist and, I guess, loses interest because he just wanders off again.
He isn’t really out of the room entirely before Damon starts screaming bloody murder because Mason has pulled open the curtains to let the sun shine on him (he threw off Damon’s sun-walking ring, beforehand) So… yeah, Stefan doesn’t care about his brother being tortured in their own house and subsequently has no worries for his own life. Nice compulsion there, Klaus.
o o o
Mystic Falls has officially lost their collective minds. Or the Vampire Diaries just doesn’t give a fuck anymore because they’ve pulled this event out of their asses. I watched this episode twice, and I still have no idea why the hell they are doing this or what the hell this event was about. Well, besides another excuse for everyone to gather in the square in the pitch black of night.
Carol Lockwood is up on stage bullshitting about how back in the day turning off the lights at night and proceeding to hang up lanterns meant something else besides trying to see in the dark, while Alaric and Jeremy listen. Anna is there too. Alaric is there because he’s part of the history department, Jeremy is there because he’s the only person Alaric could find that he has leverage over (the ‘I can fail you’ thing) and Anna is there because where else would she be. The whole time Carol talks into the mic, Anna calls her a liar. The same happens with an old man named Tobias Fell comes up to yammer, and Jeremy and Anna titter. Only it just looks like Jeremy is tittering, so he looks crazy.
Elena shows up and asks Jeremy why the hell he’s laughing alone. He plays it off well, by pointing what a joke this Tobias Fell guy is, and she buys it. He and Anna hold hands, and it looks exactly like you think holding hands with a ghost would.
o o o
Caroline is asking Bonnie if she managed to actually do anything this time when she did her magic and Bonnie is like ‘gurl, it’s me.’ She explains that Anna is still around and chillin and she’s still second best. Alright, so I’m just going to say it now – I don’t care about Jeremy/Bonnie. At all. It was a weird relationship to write in and it never really worked romantically. It worked with tying either character into more story lines, but if that’s the case please have Matt date somebody! Oh, and also I never really cared about Anna, or Jeremy/Anna. I know, apparently I am one of the few out of millions. So yeah, that’s probably why I didn’t like this episode that much – such a huge chunk of it was devoted to three characters and a love triangle I couldn’t care less about.
Caroline and Bonnie are discussing how much Bonnie’s life sucks right now when Damon pulls up all angry faced in his car. He doesn’t even stop the engine as he lets Bonnie know that she messed up again when she sent Vicki away. They ask him why he’d even say something like that and he’s like ‘I don’t know – maybe because Mason Lockwood just tortured the hell out of me.’ He tells Bonnie to get her crap together and utters the number one rule on every one of our lists (Whoever I kill is supposed to STAY dead) before he zooms off.
o o o
So remember how Elena was badass last week?? Well, I guess she decided being awesome wasn’t going to work, because she has reverted back to being craycray. She stole all of Stefan’s journals and wants Jeremy to contact Lexi so she can help get Stefan back on the rails.
My psychologist tells me that my severe anxiety disorder can be somewhat attributed to my passive way of dealing with things, so maybe Elena shouldn’t be listening to me when I tell her, once again, to let this go. There’s a part in this episode where I really, REALLY thought she had gotten the point and gave herself her own lesson, but I was wrong. She took her great advice and skewed it in that way she does to make it bad and insane.
Jeremy tells Elena he can’t contact Lexi – he didn’t know her and had no emotional connection to her at all. Besides he doesn’t even know if Lexi is on the Other Side. He goes on to explain to them what the Other Side actually is – where the dead are, watching everyone, but can’t interact. Alaric is like ‘what about that ghost that blew up my car?’ Jeremy tells him Vicki had some help on the Other Side, but most ghosts aren’t hooked up like that. Alaric says that may be well and dandy, but maybe they should stop summoning dead people.
Elena gives him this hilarious ‘wtf face.’ Like what he said was just so unreasonable.
o o o
Bonnie goes up to Matt to ask him if he had anything to do with everything being screwed up and Matt says nope. He did what he had to do. Plus, who’s the one with the track record of screwing everything up, Bonnie? Hm?
Matt basically walks away from the conversation when Bonnie starts explaining how awful this could be for everybody. He says he’s had enough of this ghost bullshit for a lifetime, and he bounces. Caroline and Bonnie are about to walk away too, but Bonnie’s bag is unzipped and one of her grimoires flips open to a specific page about Veiled Matter aka ghosts.
o o o
Elena is still begging Jeremy for help, when Alaric snaps that this cannot, in any way, end well. There are too many dead people in their pasts; it’s impossible to remember and wade through the good ones and the bad ones. And it’s creepy enough, just imagining them watching humans do things like fart, or watch Adam Sandler movies, or wear silly aprons while cooking casseroles.
Anna tells Jeremy that some ghosts don’t go to the Other Side at all – some just find peace and move on. He tells Alaric and Elena this, and Elena is all ‘is Anna here right now?’ Anna tells Jeremy to lie and he does, before he gets up and leaves the table to go inside of the Grill to ‘check his work schedule.’
I really didn’t like the way Elena treated Anna this episode. Yeah, okay, granted, Anna is technically the chick Jeremy is emotionally cheating on Bonnie with, but there are tons of extenuating circumstances. Like for one; she is a ghost. No matter how you felt about someone when they were alive, them being a freaking GHOST garners at least a little awe or wonder, and a profound sense of respect. At least off the bat. Two: This is the ex of your brother. The ex that your brother loved so, so much and was hauled away from him as a result of your Uncle Daddy trying to kill your two boyfriends. At least treat her a little nicely for what she’s been through, is still going through, and for what she meant to your brother. Three: Elena playing the overprotective best girlfriend did not mesh well at all. Do they really expect us to believe Elena has that much time to be super protective of Bonnie when she’s so wrapped up in her own life. I bet she forgot Jeremy and Bonnie were even dating at all. I’m not saying she wouldn’t care that this was happening, but I’d expect her to take it in and leave Jeremy and Bonnie to it instead of becoming some frothing at the mouth guard dog like they expect us to believe she is. I was actually happy when later on Elena showed her true colors by choosing Stefan’s ‘detox’ over Bonnie’s emotions.
After Jeremy leaves, Stefan saunters up to see his innermost thoughts spread all over the table. He laughs it off, basically saying ‘man! I felt all them feelings. Never gonna feel them feelings again!’ He also says he forgot how much he used to care and Elena says that she didn’t.
I don’t know if I have any more words for how utterly deluded Elena is. At least last week she was trying to defend herself. This week she’s gone back to hiding in the closet full of names. Stefan tells her its best that they just move on – the past is in the past and they should just move to the future. Alaric tells Stefan to get lost and he says fine, but he’ll be back tonight. There will be a big crowd and lots to eat *wink wink* Alaric and Elena look horrified and Stefan laughs and says he’s kidding.
He hasn’t even walked down the block when Elena turns to Alaric and says that she won’t drop it. Alaric doesn’t even care anymore, really.
o o o
Bonnie has taken Caroline to that empty old house where a hundred witches were murdered.
Caroline is understandably nervous but Bonnie assures her that everything is fine and the witches are gone now.
Caroline is still pretty nervous.
o o o
Jeremy takes Anna into the men’s bathroom and demands to know why she asked him to lie for her. She tells him that Elena is Bonnie’s best friend and she probably wouldn’t be too happy about her hanging around. Once again, everyone, including the writers of this show, give Elena too much credit.
Jeremy asks Anna how they can touch – Vicki needed a witch from the Other Side. Anna truthfully says she has no idea how this is happening. Jeremy is suspicious that the witch is now helping Anna and Anna says that is so not the case. He makes her swear that she’s telling the truth about not being a danger to anybody.
Suddenly it seems to hit Jeremy how screwed up this whole thing is and he says that nothing is okay with this situation they are in. Anna says fine, if that’s how he feels he can send her away. She’s only there because they both want to be around each other. Of course he can’t do it, and he tells her that he has no idea what is happening or when it will stop but either way he needs to do something.
And then he kisses her.
Not in the bathroom stall, but in the open bathroom. Where anyone could walk in and see.
o o o
Bonnie and Caroline are still in that house, but now Bonnie is chanting her ooga-booga.
o o o
In the Grill, Alaric runs into Damon, but he’s still mad at him for the whole breaking his neck thing. Man, Alaric can really hold a grudge. In real life this would be reasonable, but in Mystic Falls where a death is forgotten by the time I finish this sentence, that is a really long time to be mad at someone.
Alaric says he’s got no time for Damon right now. He says right out that they aren’t a team and ‘not friends’ and also ‘I don’t like you anymore.’ It’s kind of adorable actually. Damon is like ‘ah, but remember when we were a team and we killed that one guy. The hot one, Mason?’ And Alaric is like yeah, why. Damon tells him that Mason is still really mad about that, turns out.
o o o
More ooga-booga at the house. And up pops –
EEK! Jasmine Guy! Grams, I love you.
o o o
Elena busts into the (guy’s? co-ed? What kind of deal is the Grill running) bathroom to see Anna with Jeremy.
o o o
Stefan walks by a car to see Lexi’s reflection, does a double take, and actually sees Lexi. LEXI! I love you!
o o o
Mason comes up to the bar, drinks Damon’s whiskey, then smashes the glass against Damon’s head. Mason! You know how I feel about you.
I also love how no one reacted to that blatant display of public violence. A reoccurring theme in this episode.
o o o
Lexi talks fast and hard – she doesn’t know what the hell is going on, and she doesn’t know how long it will last, so she’s going to get right to the point – Stefan is off the rails and he needs help. Stefan says he doesn’t want her help and she should leave him alone.
She does that instead. On a busy street.
She’s the best!
o o o
Bonnie is sobbing for happiness. Grams is like ‘stop cryin’ girl. We have things to fix, mainly all of your mistakes.’ She tells her that bringing Jeremy back from the dead was her first mistake, but Bonnie says that she loves him and couldn’t just let him go.
Grams says she understands, but by doing that Bonnie cracked open a door to the Other Side and there’s an old witch over there that took advantage of it. She stuck her foot in the door and wedged it wide open to every ghost that had a grudge could come back and take care of unfinished business.
BonBon asks Grams how she knows all this and Grams is like ‘witches talk, even on the Other Side. Plus we make all the rules.’ Bonnie asks Grams what the witch wants but she shuts that down right quick – telling Bonnie that that’s Original Vampire business and has nothing to do with Bonnie. What she needs to do is set the balance of nature back to normal since she’s the one who messed it up. She needs to close the door.
o o o
Clip to Elena and Caroline on the phone. Caroline is telling Elena that in order to do the spell to lock the door they need the talisman aka that damn necklace. It’s some sort of juju power source and Bonnie needs to destroy it. Elena is like okay whatever, Jeremy is over macking on Anna. Caroline gets defensive and upset as well, but what else would Caroline do? That’s totally in character for her.
Elena says she doesn’t know where the necklace is but Damon does, and to hurry up and destroy it so Anna can go away. Once again, what the hell? There is no really good reason for Elena to be such a jerk to a dead girl. She goes on to tell Anna to get the hell out of there, to disappear or evaporate. Ugh, this girl.
Jeremy tells Elena not to be mad at Anna, that it’s his fault. Anna is gone by this point. Elena says yeah, it’s his fault and asks how the hell did all of this happen. He says he has no idea but he begs her not to tell Bonnie. Elena says yeah okay, she wasn’t going to tell. That’s Jeremy’s job and he can do it after she helps Bonnie send all the ghosts away.
She leaves the bathroom only to bump into Lexi. This moment made me happy, because like I said earlier, that weird, caring part of Elena went bye-bye and we saw the maniacal glint in her eye that sparkles whenever it comes to Stefan. Lexi tells her to come along to learn some Ripper Detox 101. Elena barely spares the whole best friend/brother cheating thing a thought before running off to a torture cell.
o o o
Over at the bar, Damon is irately texting Caroline saying he’s tired of talking about that damn necklace. Hear, hear! I agree with you fully, Sir. Mason bums more free whiskey off of Damon and Alaric. Damon is annoyed – he tells Mason he knows he killed him and he wants revenge, but he needs to get in line. Mason says all he wants is an apology and Alaric just busts out with this adorable guffaw and a ‘good luck with that.’ Damon is all don’t you have better things to do? Your nephew is kind of in a pickle and Mason says that’s why he’s here – to help Tyler. Damon says there is no way to help Tyler while Klaus is alive and Klaus will live forever so…
Mason says that’s not to true, not if one had the weapon to kill him, and you can visibly see both Damon and Alaric’s ears prick up. Damon insists on knowing what it is, and Mason wants his apology. Damon says no, Alaric yells at him, and Damon relents.
Damon: You’re right. I didn’t have to kill you. I do a lot of things I… don’t… have… to. do.
Annnd, that is good enough for Mason. He hops off of the bar stool and tells Damon to meet him with a shovel down in the old Lockwood ‘cellar.’ And also he needs to come alone. Damon asks if he’s going to be buried alive, and Mason makes no definite promises.
o o o
Torture cellar. Stefan is all tied up. Elena tells her that he was Compelled to turn off his humanity and Lexi says she’ll just turn it back on. She warns Elena that it won’t be pretty and Elena is like ‘I can handle it.’ Lexi wakes Stefan up and ignores his pleas to be let loose. She tells him to shut up so she can get inside of his head, and proceeds to ‘strip away the temptation’ by bringing out his bloodlust.
She stares into his eyes and his veins start bubbling. I honestly don’t know what was happening here. Ghosts can… detox you instantly? I really didn’t understand.
o o o
Lockwood cellar. Mason is surprised Damon came at all. Damon says his other lead (Michael) came to a dead end and Mason says he knows. He tells Damon that there is nothing else to do on the Other Side but watch people make mistakes.
He picks up a shovel and begins to bang at one of the stone walls – apparently the Lockwoods had a way to kill an Original vampire but kept it buried away. Damon takes the shovel from him and breaks open the wall to reveal a passage way.
Damon makes Mason go first.
o o o
Stefan is hallucinating in his chair – apparently, somehow he’s feeling the withdrawal effect akin to five years free of blood. Stefan says he’s glad Lexi is dead. Lexi is unfazed. Caroline calls Elena and says that she can’t find the necklace and Elena asks her to somehow get Bonnie to hold off on sending the ghosts back since Lexi is helping her break Stefan.
Caroline says fine – they’ll find the necklace first before deciding which boyfriend ghost drama to deal with. Bonnie overhears and asks what she means and Caroline hesitates a little before spilling the beans about Jeremy’s cheating ways. Bonnie is upset and Caroline tells her that Anna may think she is going to be here forever but they are going to get rid of her spectral ass soon.
o o o
Everyone is hanging out in the dark in the middle of the town for no good reason, and Jeremy is bumping into everyone trying to find Anna. He bumps into a guy in a leather jacket who looks awfully familiar.
Oh! It’s that evil, sexy, angry, tomb vampire who hates the founding familes. I didn’t expect that.
Carol can’t find Tobias Fell in the dark so she asks Alaric to introduce this night of nonsense.
Anna sees the evil tomb vampire and is shocked that he is there.
Carol is up at the podium saying she has no idea why she can’t find Tobias in the darkness and introduces Alaric instead. He feels his way up to stand on the stage.
Jeremy spots Anna and evil tomb vampire tuts her for still hanging out with the Gilberts despite the past. Jeremy asks if everything is alright and evil tomb vampire says to ask his ancestors. Anna asks him what he wants and he says revenge on the founding families, basically.
The lanterns light up to reveal –
Tobias Fell hanging dead against a tree. A few people gasp and scream but overall it’s no biggie. The town of Mystic Falls is used to this kind of thing.
Know what would be cool? If this show just took a complete left turn, took this one obvious murder-not-animal-attack, connected the dots to the million other deaths, and decided there was a serial killer afoot. Man! Imagine how awesome this would be – the paranoia, the grudges, the finger pointing. I want this to happen!
o o o
Back at the torture cellar, Stefan is telling Elena he loves her so much, he’s sorry, and he’ll change. Lexi tells her he’s lying and will say and do anything to get her to get rid of Lexi. Elena stays strong, and Stefan flips basically telling her she’s the worst and he wishes he never met her.
Lexi points out that it’s the Ripper talking and at this stage in the game the next thing to do is cause him pain when he’s weak enough. The reasoning behind this is to get him to feel anything at all. She stabs him over and over with a thick wooden stake.
It suddenly becomes too much for Elena to bear and she runs outside only to walk around the corner to see cop cars everywhere.
This is stupid. This whole storyline is ridiculous.
o o o
Bonnie and Elena are still looking for that necklace in Damon’s room when Jeremy calls Bonnie. Caroline picks up because Bonnie can’t manage it and Jeremy tells her to hurry up with the spell since the tomb vampires are back and are planning to kill everyone from the founding families. Caroline tells him that they are trying but they can’t find the necklace anywhere – unless someone took it. Jeremy asks who took it and Caroline asks who does he think she means.
Catching on pretty quickly, Jeremy tells her that Anna didn’t take it and Anna confirms this. Caroline doesn’t have time for this, though, and she lays it out straight – Anna was the only other person who heard them talking about it, she wants to stick around in the real world, and he needs to get his head out of his ass and realize this before it’s too late. She hangs up on him just as Elena rushes up to ask what the heck is going on.
o o o
Back in the secret passage way, Damon is grilling Mason – he doesn’t believe in his pure intentions. Mason says despite the tough talk Damon spouts he would do anything for his brother. They come to a fork in the passage way – Damon asks which way and Mason says he doesn’t know so he picks left. Damon goes right-
-and hits a booby trap that has huge vervain covered stakes popping out of walls to stab through his body.
o o o
Back at the town square, Elena and Jeremy are arguing. He doesn’t believe that Anna took the necklace and Elena thinks he’s being stupid. She says they need to find it, destroy it, and close the door, but hesitates when Jeremy says that he wants Anna to stick around. He can touch her now, and he knows that he shouldn’t feel this way about her but he does and can’t stop. He loves her and always has.
And here’s where I thought Elena had an epiphany. She tells Jeremy that that relationship is doomed – it can’t work because she is dead. Everything that he’s holding onto is in the past and he can’t love someone so unavailable for the rest of his life. Just then Anna appears and Elena tells her that she’s just holding Jeremy back. He’s at the beginning of his life and she is way past the end of hers.
Anna knows this is true and holds up the necklace that she did, indeed, steal.
Elena tells Jeremy to call Bonnie and tell her that he has the necklace so she can send the ghosts away.
o o o
Damon, still staked upright, moans that he’s having a bad day. Mason appears carrying a large rock that he uses to break off each stake. Again Damon asks him why he’s being so helpful – after what he did to him, he should be wanting revenge.
Mason tells him he’s all alone on the Other Side – they watch the people they left behind and regret their own choices. He can’t reverse what happened to him, but he can help Tyler – he doesn’t want revenge, but redemption.
o o o
Bonnie and Caroline are driving back to the witch house when they come across Mrs. Lockwood passed out in her crashed car. The tomb vampires are approaching the vehicle to no doubt make some mischief and Caroline tells Bonnie to let her out here and then race back to the witch house to do the spell. Bonnie resists, but Caroline tells her that she needs to keep her boyfriend’s mother alive and the sooner the spell gets done the sooner this is over with.
She gets out of the car and Bonnie zooms off.
o o o
Jeremy and Anna are talking and he’s trying to convince her (and himself) that all because he’s giving the necklace back doesn’t mean they can’t see each other anymore. They just can’t touch. Anna tearfully says that may be true, but this should be the end because when push comes to shove she really is holding him back. I agree with this sentiment, I’m just annoyed that it came from Elena. Elena is like that broken clock – its right for two minutes, but wrong 1438 minutes of each day. This scene gave Elena some cred that she, unlike last week, doesn’t deserve.
Anyway, Anna didn’t take the necklace to just kiss up on Jeremy – she really just wanted to find her mother. She has no idea what happened to Pearl – doesn’t know if she’s on the Other Side, or found peace. Anna doesn’t even know if there is peace to find. Awww, Anna. I like her so much more now! I think the reason why I didn’t like her too much before is because I never trusted her (you can’t trust ANYONE on this show) so I was very wary, just waiting for the other shoe to drop. Now that they’ve brought her back, her good intentions have been made just that much more clear. Aww, man. Don’t leave, ANNA!
Jeremy assures her that there is peace somewhere – there has to be, because if there isn’t being alive in Mystic Falls has just been made that much worse. He assures her that she won’t be alone and they hug it out before he runs off to give Bonnie the necklace.
o o o
Elena and Lexi are still doing that torture thing. I expected Elena to just tell Lexi to stop, after giving that impassioned speech to Jeremy about supernatural creatures holding other back. Thought she’d seen the light, but actually she lets the torturing continue. Stefan berates Lexi, saying that in life all she did was try to make him better and now she has nothing better to do in death.
Elena says that they are running out of time and Lexi says she needs to break him before she disappears. Elena says tough titties – they have the necklace and the door is about to be closed. I guess Lexi has an ah-ha! moment, because she kneels down in front of Stefan and goes on about how he must remember how he felt about the necklace. Apparently it was s symbol of hope – he found it in his darkest days, looked at it when he was blood-sober, and remembered how awful he was (or is- remember, it’s in his nature to be a Ripper) Stefan says it’s kinda ironic how his symbol of hope is about to get blown into pieces.
I’m still confused as to why Ripper Stefan kept a lady necklace.
o o o
Mason and Damon come to an open space in the cavern but Damon can’t get through because of a spell. Mason holds his lantern high and low, searching for the weapon to kill Klaus.
o o o
Jeremy gives Bonnie the necklace, which she snatches from him with a dirty look. She speeds headlong into the witch spell after she chucks it onto some ashes in the fireplace.
Soon Grams comes to hold her hand and chant along with her. I’m pretty sure it is Greg Laswell that is singing this wonderful version of A Woman’s World (because who the hell else sounds like Greg Laswell, am I right? I’ll look it up) and we are switched from scene to scene to see what is going on.
o o o
Carol Lockwood wakes up to see that girl she got tortured by her own gay father defending her life. Caroline beats up some ghosts before they disappear into thin air.
o o o
Mason’s eyes light up as he see something high up on the cave wall. Damon hurries him up to tell him what it is, but poof and Mason is gone. Along with my heart.
o o o
Lexi can feel herself about to fade. She tells Elena that Stefan is still in there, she just has to break him down day after day after day after day. Elena says she has nothing better to do with her life, and Lexi fades away. I think she actually finds peace. Unlike the tomb vampires hungry for revenge, and Mason who is just going to most likely stick around, watching, until he’s sure Tyler is safe.
o o o
Anna is walking down an empty street and there in the middle of the darkness is Pearl. They run towards each other, and hug, and when they fade away we know they’ve found peace. I might have teared up over this scene. Shut up.
o o o
The spell is over and Grams is telling Bonnie that she is so much stronger than all of this and that she is so proud of her. This part did hit me hard, and I’m sure a lot of people watching as well – most of us have that one person who’s left us that we wish almost every day we could see one more time, and hear them say the very same words.
Also, as much as I rag on Bonnie, I agree with Grams. She can be much stronger than she already is, but she needs time to sit down and practice. She doesn’t because she lets all of her friends pull her this way and that, using her as a tool, and she’s forced to make hasty, snap decisions that almost always end in tragedy. Grams poofs away.
o o o
Alaric meets Damon in the tomb and asks snidely if he had no one else to call and Damon says honestly that yeah, pretty much that’s it. He’s a vampire and can’t get in and besides Elena, Alaric is the only person that Damon trusts. Alaric, still butthurt, says that Damon has a funny way of showing it to which Damon replies, if Mason Lockwood can get over the fact that Damon killed him for reals why can’t Alaric forgive him for killing him for a few hours.
Alaric says he shouldn’t have to get over it and Damon should never have done it in the first place since they’re best friends.
Damon: Well! Sometimes! I do things… that I don’t… have… to do.
Alaric asks if he’s really going to use that line again and Damon says pretty much – only difference is he means it this time. Than he smiles like this:
And all is forgiven.
TeeHee! They are so great!
o o o
Stefan, still the Ripper, is looking at Elena (who, I refrained from saying this the whole recap, is wearing an awful outfit. She doesn’t pull off the oversize blazer look well, imo) Stefan asks her if she’s just going to stand there and watch him dry out and she says nope; she’s gonna go be there for Bonnie, and see if her brother is okay, etc, etc. Stefan says he knew she would give up.
Then she gets all close and personal and says that she hasn’t given up, but there is nothing she can do until he gets his own hope back. She grabs his face and says that he can break through this if her really, really wants to, and if he doesn’t he’s going to lose her. And she won’t love a ghost for the rest of her life.
Now, you may all be saying ‘See, Coquills! She did learn a lesson!’ And I would reply ‘nay! She did not,’ because the mere fact that she has spent so much time on this situation and doesn’t really plan to not cut Stefan out of her life as much as she can (which she can now, since he’s strapped to a chair he can’t get out of) shows how ridiculous her reasoning is.
But hey, I’ll be the first to admit that I have an easier time cutting people out than most, so this all may just be the ramblings of a cynical bitch.
Elena and her blazer leave the dungeon room.
o o o
Jeremy tries to explain but Bonnie ain’t havin that mess! She points out that Matt, lonely ass MATT, let go of his sister of all people, but Jeremy still can’t let go of his dead ex-girlfriend. She doesn’t want to hear a thing Jeremy has to say and makes him leave.
Go Bonnie! While I prefer Jeremy and Anna together, Jere played this whole thing terribly.
Just when he leaves, sparks erupt from the fire place and the previously destroyed necklace is whole and new again.
o o o
Back in the cave, Damon asks Alaric if he sees anything. Alaric is silent for a while and says yeah, he does.
We have no idea what it is, and neither does Alaric.
o o o
Poof. That’s it. The end of this week’s episode of Vampire Diaries. Like I said, over all it was alright. My favorite part of each episode is the cliffhanger, but this one left me wanting. Know what I did love, though? Ain’t nobody was thinking about Aunt Jenna. HAH!
Next episode, we meet the Original family! Joy!
Tell me what you guys thought in the comments!
-Did anyone really think the necklace was gone for reals?
-How do you feel about the whole Jeremy, Anna, Bonnie mess?
-Aren’t you glad Damon has a bestie again?
-When is Klaus coming back??
