One of the best episode’s of this season- Vampire Diaries did NOT disappoint with the return of last night’s brand new episode. I didn’t have time to watch it last night, but I did see a Tweet that hinted an Elena and Damon kiss. I’ve never been pro Damon/Elena but damn that kiss was hot!
Now that Damon and Stefan need to find out which vampires were in their bloodline, Damon and Elena travel to Denver to visit Jeremy and ask him to find an old friend of Damon’s.
While in Denver, Stefan is stuck babysitting Alaric trying to turn him into his alter ego and reveal the location of the last white oak dagger. Caroline reunites with her man Tyler- and Rebecca and Matt have a moment in a blue pick-up truck.
So, where do I began? SO much happened in this episode, you just need to watch it for yourself. Rebecca is planning the huge 1920s dance at their school, since she has no car (which is ironic because her family is 1000 years old and have loads of money) she gets a ride from her crush Matt. They have a little cute moment in the truck, Rebecca is so crushing over Matt because he’s the normal guy that every original vampire wants. I actually hope something happens between the two. When Rebecca gets inside, she sees her mother Esther who basically tried killing all her children a few episodes back. Rebecca tries to kill her, and Esther says she’s already dying. Then a few minutes later they hold hands, and Esther just falls and ‘dies’.
Caroline visits Tyler in what looks to be the Lockwood cellars so I don’t know how far he actually went on his self-discovery journey. Anyways, she tells him Damon and Stefan are looking to see if they’re in anyway connected to Klaus through their bloodline, and if they’re not then they’re going to kill Klaus- which would mean they would kill Tyler.
Stefan beats the evil alter ego out of Alaric who finally tells Stefan where he’s hid the white oak dagger. Only problem, Klaus and Rebecca were nearby listening to the entire conversation. Rebecca grabs Alaric and escorts him to the caves to retrieve the dagger.
Damon and Elena run into Jeremy’s friend…aka Cole who is brother’s with Klaus. Jeremy not knowing this almost gets himself killed- but Damon to the rescue and he buys enough time for them to hide in a cheap motel in the middle of nowhere. Damon asks Jeremy to contact an old friend Rose, since Jeremy has the ability to see dead people…he was their first choice. So Jeremy sees Rose and she basically tells him all this information, but they’re missing one vampire Mary so Rose gives them the location of where Mary was seen last- Kansas.
During the night, Damon feels the need to walk aimlessly through their motel room which his shirt open, his glorious 6-pack glowing in the moonlit shadows. Elena sneaks a peak, and watches Damon as he enjoys a glass of scotch. He notices her looking at him and moves closer to her, until they’re basically sharing a bed and holding hands. (BTW, this scene was a tiny bit on the awkward side) Jeremy was in the bed next to them!
Elena can’t stand sleeping beside Damon she gets too hot and steps out of the room to get some air, Damon obviously follows her…and then they end up making out. Damon and Elena get hot and heavy in the motel hallway until Jeremy walks in on them! They finally get to Kansas- find Mary except she’s dead hanging on the wall. Original vampire Cole got to her first, and now Damon has no way of finding out their bloodline.
Elena and Damon have another moment minus the making out- Damon realizes this trip was just so Elena could figure out her feelings about him. She says that everytime they get close Damon does something, and it completely turns her off. This time, Damon says he’s going to be himself and not mess anything up-making it harder for her to choose between him and his brother Stefan. In the car ride home- Jeremy sees Rose again in the backseat and she tells him not to tell the others about her presence. She has a really good narration about the relationship between Elena and Damon..while we see Damon and Elena in the front seat awkwardly looking at each other.
Tyler has a sleepover at Caroline’s house…until he finds the drawing Klaus drew for Caroline- Tyler gets super jealous and storms off…clearly Caroline still has feelings for Klaus.
So far so good right? The ending is the best.
When Rebecca takes Alaric to the caves, as a vampire she can’t go in all the way- Alaric steps in and grabs the dagger…and tries to negotiate his life with Rebecca. Just then, she sticks her foot out and enters the cave!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! At which point, she tells him she wants all the originals to die…because she’s really Esther!!!!!!!!!! I guess when Rebecca and Esther held hands…she actually became Rebecca! Crazy!!
*Sidenote: Last season Klaus had the ability to enter Alaric’s body so I guess this is another superpower they have as originals*
Tune in next week- this season is getting better and better!!
