Thursday nights just keep better and better as Vampire Diaries gets crazier! Last night was an insane episode! We got to meet Bonnie’s mom (finally), who left Bonnie with her grandmother when she was a youngin’, and we find out the real reason Alaric’s new girl is infatuated with vampires.
Most of the episode revolves around Bonnie/Elena taking a trip to another town to seek out Bonnie’s mother. Bonnie comes from a long line of witches (her grandmother taught her everything she knows)…and we learn her mother was also a very powerful witch. Obviously, Klaus has an evil plan already in the works and sends one of his hybrids to find Bonnie’s mom. Elena and Bonnie get in the car…which next time, Bonnie shouldn’t drive since obviously she’s a slow driver…they arrive after the hybrid has already found Bonnie’s mom. Stefan is worried about Bonnie’s whereabouts…he calls the girls and Elena lies to him telling him they’re at her family’s lake house for the weekend (obviously he doesn’t believe it).
Meanwhile, Tyler tries one more time to apologize to Caroline this time asking her father for help. Since Caroline’s dad is some crazy vampire expert…he knows a thing or two about compulsion and how to fight it. Tyler asks him for help- the dad says the only way Tyler can release himself from Klaus’ hold is to force himself into werewolf transformation. The three of them agree to help Tyler go through the horrifying and bone breaking experience.
Damon helps out homie Alaric by paying a visit to Alaric’s new girl-Meredith (the doctor). In the midst of their conversation, Meredith uses vervaine and knocks Damon out, she uses the small amount of time to extract some blood for him- and then she leaves. Later on, she confesses to Alaric that she uses vampire blood to heal patients that are almost on the verge of death. If you don’t know already, vampire blood speeds up the healing process, especially on humans. When Caroline’s father pushes Tyler to his limit, he accidentally attacks him while he’s in werewolf form. When Caroline’s father goes to the hospital, Meredith uses Damon’s blood to show Alaric how drastically it improves patients health. Alaric is happy, and he’s in love.
With that out of the way, Bonnie has an emotional moment with her mom. We also find out her mother has been taking care of her ex-boyfriend’s son (whose about Bonnie’s age I think his name was Paul, let’s just call him that). When Elena steps out of the house to give Bonnie and her mother some alone time, Elena is caught by Stefan who is extremely angry at the girls for lying to him.
Just then, Paul steps out of nowhere and tells Stefan he’s not supposed to be there, except he says it really robotically so we know he’s under compulsion. He shoots Stefan in the chest with some wooden bullets, and then ties Elena up. At the same time, Bonnie finds out her mom has no real witch powers, she exhausted them when she put a spell on Michael (Klaus’ father) also the reason she left Mystic Falls. When Bonnie gets up to find Elena, her mom chokes her with something, and brings her out to the car. Klaus’ plan was to kill Bonnie and end the Bennett line of witches. Long story short, Bonnie’s mom ends up helping them and tells Bonnie to warn Damon about Klaus knowing the whereabouts of the coffins. Elena frees herself, and saves Stefan…right before telling him she kissed Damon. Stefan was in shock!! It was the best moment of the season! He didn’t even look at her, he just got up and walked away.
In the end, Klaus is reunited with his coffins (I don’t get this part)…we see a scene with Damon and Stefan. Stefan punches Damon in the face…and Damon shows him the dagger which is used to kill the original vampires. Then we see Klaus again, talking to his hybrid, and all of a sudden the hybrid’s heart is pulled out…and we see Elijah!!! Who Klaus killed last season!!! Damon pulled out the dagger in his heart which brings him back to life…all I can say is…he’s not a happy camper!
Can’t wait for next week!
