Yes everyone, last night on Vampire Diaries we found out our beloved Klaus is…a liar. Shocking. The episode wasn’t amazing, but it did explain a lot of the history surrounding the original vampires. It’s still an episode to see…if you missed it…you’re screwed. Or, just keep reading here…and I’ll bring you up to date.
So last week’s episode ended off with Damon showing Alaric the secret caves…and the secret message drawn onto the cave walls. Obviously, they’re pictures and not letters, because the alphabet wasn’t created at that time. Yes people…we are talking OLD school.
Alaric, the history buff that he is, takes pictures of the entire wall, and then proceeds to unravel the stories behind these odd drawings. Meanwhile, Elena has it in her head that she’s going to try and befriend Rebecca to get some more information about the necklace that won’t break. Rebecca who was asked by Klaus to stay in Mystic Falls and keep an eye on Elena is trying really hard to be a cheerleader and have a normal life. Anyways, the episode goes back and forth between Elena/Rebecca, Alaric, and Stefan/Damon.
Damon has the bright idea to let Stefan out of the dungeon he was being kept in (Elena’s idea of bringing the old Stefan back) Anyways, Damon decides to have a day of brotherly bonding at some bar…and while they’re there…they run into Michael!! Michael is the uber vampire who is the only one that can kill Klaus…Katherine brought him back to life…and as far as we now he killed Katherine right after. Oops!
Rebecca opens up about her childhood…the time before she turned into a vampire. So it was her,Klaus (apparently his name was Nicholas)..and their younger brother who got killed by a werewolf. Long before there were vampires, there were always werewolves! Who knew! That’s 1 for Team Jacob.
Anyways, it gets a little confusing here. The village that Rebecca’s family lived in..consisted of a witch (probably one of Bonnie’s aunts)…and werewolves…and some other normal people. We find out a little later on…that Rebecca’s mother was actually the original witch! So, one day Klaus and the younger brother go into the woods to watch the men turn into wolves (who wouldn’t?)…and by accident they cut the younger brother’s head off. Michael (the father) begs the witch to find some spell and bring him back to life. But the witch can’t do that…it goes against the rules of nature bla bla bla…
In the end, Michael stabs Klaus and Rebecca I guess killing them…he wants them to become superior to the wolves. Therefore, starting the process of turning into a vampire. So now there all vampires…except somewhere along the way their mother put a curse on Klaus and turned him into a hybrid. So Rebecca keeps going on about the curse of becoming a vampire, obviously they were the originals therefore there were no others like them before. She said everything that was good about being a vampire…always had a negative to it. I guess that’s the curse that was put onto them. They can’t be in the sunlight, the white oak tree was the only thing that could kill them, so Michael burnt it to the ground. Then Rebecca tells us that Michael ended up killing her mother because he found out she had an affair with one of the village people. Apparently, Klaus wasn’t Michael’s son…he was the son of the guy she hooked up with.
So then…Alaric and Elena look over the drawings one more time…and Alaric is stumped on one drawing. Elena puts it together that Rebecca’s mother was the original witch…and she was killed by something…once they figured out the symbol they realized it was the ‘hybrid’ aka Klaus. Elena returns to Rebecca and asks her how she knew Michael killed her mother. Rebecca said she never saw, but Klaus told her Michael did it. And then Elena shows the drawings…and it all makes sense..Rebecca starts crying and Elena dissapears. So now we have pretty much everyone on our side, because Klaus is a liar. He lied to Rebecca all those years so she would never leave him…you get the point.
Michael almost kills Damon while trying to get information out of Stefan. Obviously, Stefan saves Damon by telling Michael that he doesn’t know where Klaus is, but he can get him to return to Mystic Falls. Yay!
In the end, Damon and Elena have a romantic moment…she tells Damon Stefan will only find himself not because he loves her…but because he loves Damon…so cute! Too bad Elena falls asleep before Damon could kiss her.Lame!
Oh the writer’s are going to make us wait for that one!!
