So we were extremely excited about this week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries after last weeks finale with Delena left us surprisingly hot and bothered. We found out that the reason the Delena situation is happening, might be because Elena is sired to Damon. We don’t know if Damon did it on purpose or when the sire bond happened, but some of our questions were answered in this episode.
Stefan and Caroline are hard at work discussing all the reasons why Elena could be sired to Damon…this all the while Elena and Damon continue to get down and dirty. I have to say, I really don’t like Elena when she’s with Damon! I mean I was getting a little bored with her and Stefan, but I think it was too soon for her to jump in the sack with D. It’s the morning after and Elena has to get to school, but when Stefan returns home in the morning, all Elena can say to him is ‘See you in class’. Really biatch?
Finally, everyone’s back at school,Bonnie is alive again, and Elena wants a girls night really, really bad. With an unlimited supply of expensive champagne Bonnie, Caroline and Elena start off their party night on the wrong foot with unopened bottles of champagne and empty glasses. Who does that? Meanwhile, Damon and Stefan have a boys night in NOLA, because apparently, Damon sired another vampire girl back in the 40s.
Turns out, Damon sired a vampire chica who was in love with him before he left New Orleans, he had told her to count all the bricks from the houses around New Orleans until his return. Sure enough, when Stefan and Damon found her on the corner Damon had told her to be, she had spent over 7 decades counting all the bricks. Cray, right? Damon hadn’t realized that he had sired her, or how literal his sire powers were. They head over to the witch store to figure out how to get rid of the sire bond. The witch in New Orleans admits she doesn’t practice witchcraft anymore, but another form of dark magic called ‘expression’. Unfortunately, the sire bond wasn’t really a curse, so it can’t be broken, Damon has to literally tell whoever’s sired to him to forget about him, and move on with their life without him. Of course now it’s not a matter of what Damon needs to do, it’s if he wants to do it. Finally, the love of his life- Elena, is in love with him, he doesn’t’ want to give up what they have, but reality sets in that she might not really be in love with him.
Girls night gets even worse when Elena decides to take the conversation into Damon’s luxurious bathroom. While sitting in his tub and secretly wishing her was there with her, Caroline blurts out that she’s making a huge mistake with Damon, but at least she hasn’t slept with him. Elena’s pissed that Caroline thinks she can tell her who to date so she decides to come out and tell the girls she’s already slept with Damon. Bonnie and Caroline are speechless, Elena storms out of the bathroom, and that bathtub will never be the same again. Caroline has diarrhea of the mouth because she also blurts out that Elena might be sired to Damon…and explains her and Stefan’s theories. Unfortunately, things get even worse because one of Tyler’s hybrids decide to kidnap Caroline.
Possibly the most randomest scene ever, the werewolves are trying to work against Tyler for some reason? However it doesn’t get too far because Tyler shows up and saves the day. Then all the hybrids awkwardly bow down to him..I guess they’re sired to him now? CONFUSED. Also, still trying to figure out what’s going on between awkward professor and Tyler’s werewolf girl friend.
Damon returns from his quick trip, Elena mentions that she knows about the sire bond. She tells him that she’s not sired and that everything she’s feeling is real. Damon wants to believe her but he knows something is up with her, he definitely has the ability to sire other vampires because he did it with the girl in NOLA. The episode ends off awkwardly as Elena starts touching Damon and begins to convince him that everything they’re feeling for one another is real.
Merp. We’ll have to wait and see with next week’s mid season finale.
