The Vampire Diaries "The Killer" Review: Death Becomes Him (PHOTO RECAP)

The Vampire Diaries S04E05: "The Killer"

Sometime around the turn of the century when I was in college (not saying which century, nosy) I took Introduction to Playwriting, mostly because it seemed like an easy A. I was like, "All I gotta do is make people yell at each other on stage?" But the class ended up being pretty educational overall. For example, the very first assignment was to write a scene between two people and they each have a secret. As it turned out, just giving someone a secret enhances personalities, focuses wants or needs, and raises personal stakes... All good things when you're writing characters! So in other words having a secret is basically a narrative steroid. It beefs things up! On the other hand, over-use can lead to a wrecked body and suddenly you're throwing sofas and you have tiny junk. (R.I.P. that metaphor.)

Anyway, look: This week's episode of The Vampire Diaries was mostly very fun and good, but I got so annoyed by all the keeping-a-secret junk. You know? Leave that soap opera stuff for the dunces trying to get easy A's in Introduction to Playwriting. Someone unnecessarily keeping information from someone else is the kind of storytelling that makes me so restless because of how not-real it seems. Same goes for easily explainable misunderstandings in rom-coms, or cracking the case via happenstance in mysteries. The keeping-a-secret plotline is the TV drama equivalent a gift box where the lid is wrapped separately for easier opening. You know? It's an artifice that really takes me out of a story. Sorry so complainy! I ran out of Halloween candy :(

But yeah, my personal preferences aside "The Killer" was a heart-blasting good time! I liked it, I promise!

"The Killer" began with Connor bringing the dead hybrid's head back to his RV in one of Klaus' pillow cases. I bet Klaus is gonna be so mad when he finds out! That pillow case's thread count was probably off the charts! Anyway, in flashback we saw Connor regrouping with the new professor dude. It turned out they weren't exactly besties and the professor really only sent Connor to Mystic Falls so that he could kill tons of vampires and keep building up that ghost tattoo of his. But now that Connor had had his run-in with Klaus & Co. he was even more pissed and quickly got himself back on the war path.

His preparation was a 2-part plan:

STEP ONE: Extract more werewolf venom. (I appreciated that the close-up of the severed head's mouth was that of a presumably underpaid extra. Put this clip on your demo reel!)

STEP TWO: Kidnap Jeremy at knife point. I enjoyed Jeremy's blase reaction about it, almost like he kind of expects this sort of thing to happen at any given time.

Oh, and guess what returned in this episode? DUELING DIARY VOICEOVERS! It makes sense to provide an occasional reminder of WHY this show has its title, but if you think about it, this sequence was even more appropriate than usual: BOTH characters are now vampires! That's TWO vampire diaries now! This show should change its name to The Vampires' Diaries.

While voiceovers, and in particular voiceovers in which characters explicitly state current their emotions, aren't my favorite things, I actually didn't mind this sequence weirdly enough. I interpreted it as being a bad sign for Stefan and Elena's relationship that they seem to have downgraded each other in the confidante department. But then again, what do I know, I'm just—OMG BABY PHOTO:

Is this an actual childhood photo of Nina Dobrev on her mirror? Adorable! Has that always been there? Man, that is cute. I love it when TV shows and movies include real photos from the actors' pasts. Separate question: Why does Elena keep a childhood photo of herself on her mirror?

Just FYI this is an Italian architectural site, you can tell by the license plate on that car. Klaus must've been pretty stoked that the site of a nine hundred-year-old temple was now an unpopulated forest area! Most Italian ruins are in unpopulated forest areas, it's a known fact.

So yeah:

So the point of all this was that Klaus wanted to find the vampire cure before anybody else, and if Stefan so much as said a word about it to his brother or girlfriend then all the vampires in the South might rise up and kill Connor and therefore Klaus would have to murder Stefan. You know what? I'm not even sure. If you ask me, these people have all become expert schemers and should know by now that it's best when everyone is fully informed and on the same page. Like, Elena wanted the cure, so if she knew there was one, just imagine how much better Klaus' scheme would've ended up. I'm not just saying this in retrospect of this episode's O. Henry-style twist, I remember thinking it during this scene. Why not tell Elena, she is motivated to help! But yeah, take away this "secret" plotline and a lot of the episode's drama would've gone down the drain. That's probably the main reason why secret-based plotlines aren't the best.

Hoookay. Back to the recap! Over at Mystic Grill, Matt hadn't so much as flipped the "Open" sign over and already April was inside trying to stave off loneliness.

It was kind of cute that April was looking for Rebekah, and even cuter that she thought Rebekah and Matt were a thing. NOT YET April. I mean, I'm pulling for it to happen, but they're not even close to it yet.

Anyway, April and Matt's informal Last Humans Standing Club meeting had to take a recess when Connor dragged Jeremy into the seating area at knife point.

That is not even a joke, Steven R. McQueen's neck is a national treasure! Sorry, not trying to be weird. (It's true though right?) Get that blade away from it! Oh here's something I thought of, though... Connor's plotline has established that the Brotherhood of the Five are technically a supernatural race right? So does that mean Jeremy's ring would protect him from getting killed by Connor? Also (spoiler for later) now that Jeremy's in The Five, he can't accidentally kill himself while wearing the ring? Food 4 thoughtz!

So now that Connor had three hostages, it was time to lure all the vampires to the Grill and grow his tattoo some. So he sent a mass text to the Salvatores and Tyler. (Guess he didn't know about Caroline.)

Another thing I love about Connor: His distaste for smartphone product placement!

So after receiving that text message, the town's hottest monsters convened to formulate a plan. The obvious one, as proposed by Damon and everyone else, was to bust into the Grill and murder Connor. HOWEVER, Stefan couldn't allow that, and worse, he couldn't tell them why OR EVEN hint at the fact that he had a conflict of interest here.

Stefan could've just said, "Yo, Klaus has a plan for Connor, I pinkie swore not to say what it is, but people in this room may actually benefit from it, so let's formulate a Plan B and I'll explain once Klaus gets back." But instead Stefan just kept outright lying to everyone and meddling with their plans, etc. Conflict!

So the Bonnie plotline made me laugh. The whole thing was hinged around the professor needing to distract Bonnie for SEVEN HOURS so that she wouldn't get mixed up in Connor's murder spree.

His plan? To get her high and HYPNOTIZE HER.

To be fair, the more we get to know this guy the more I liked him. The actor is compelling, sure, but also the character seems pretty smart (a published author!) and I think he brings out a more likable aspect of Bonnie's personality. She seemed more relaxed and was sassing him and everything! Maybe going away to college is exactly what Bonnie needs in order to become more cool and chill. She's always been sliiightly more mature than her friends, but in the context of high school that can come across as being a boring buzzkill. In college she might become more dynamic could even start smiling on the regular. Any of this make sense? I'm so tired, guys.

So anyway, Damon and Elena paid a visit to Alaric's apartment in order to paw through his stash of old antique maps. I didn't realize this, but did you know his place was directly across the street from Mystic Grill? Check out his view:

No wonder he was ALWAYS at the Grill. He didn't have to drive home! Is it safe to infer that every other character also lives within a 2-block radius? Where is Meredith's green apartment? Upstairs?

So, the mention of a Mystic Falls underground railroad couldn't have been a fluke: Slavery definitely happened in this universe. I was wondering! And yeah, just FYI, the entire town is built on top of an elaborate system of caves; it's frankly a miracle there haven't been more sinkholes and cave-ins.

There seemed to be about a half dozen scenes in this episode in which people questioned Stefan's weird obstinacy, but in this one, Stefan kind of stepped over the line in my opinion:

He vervained his own brother!

Even Elena was like, "Um why did you just vervain your brother?" And Stefan really quickly changed the subject without properly explaining himself. Something about how Damon miiiight not be as careful about protecting the hostages. Which, um, Damon has saved plenty of lives of people he supposedly didn't care about. How did Elena believe and/or agree with that lie so easily? Whatever. So Damon passed out and Stefan stole his daylight ring for good measure. (Vampire jewelry snatching is totally a thing this season.)

This was not a great episode for Caroline. I just have to say that right now. Unless you think that immediate, instinctive bitchcraft is the best way to interact with other women who step to your man.

Hayley gave 'tude right back to Caroline, but Caroline started it. I don't know. I know jealousy is a real thing, but from what I know about Caroline she's usually better about learning someone's name before giving them the stink-eye. Hayley got the best line though when she rolled her eyes and said "I don't do teen drama." So meta! You've done several of them, Tonkin.

Anyway, the main werewolf conflict here was that some hybrid dude (who was treated like an important character even though I don't remember ever seeing him before) was going to go extract Connor from the Grill per Klaus' orders.

But because hybrid dude was sired, he didn't have a choice. To demonstrate that siring doesn't have to be a thing, Tyler called up Klaus with the singular intention of not doing whatever Klaus said. But Klaus flipped the script and teased Tyler about Hayley, but Caroline used her vampire hearing to overhear this, so DRAMA. Well, not call-caps drama. But you know. Anyway, that was that scene.

Meanwhile Connor banished Matt and April to the storage room where April could monologue about how weird life is and Matt could try and chisel a hole into the cellar. (BTW Connor was openly discussing vampires in front of April, April was wondering whether vampires were real, and Matt was telling her no. So, that was April's plotline basically. Bye.)

Jeremy was getting special V.I.P. hostage treatment because Connor was either running a Big Hunter Little Hunter after school program OR he just enjoyed looking at Jeremy's neck. But Jeremy took the opportunity to bring up a very important point: Not all vampires are monsters. Connor countered that notion with a poignant bit of backstory:

He didn't really get into it, but I guess at some point Connor had a Lexi of his own but then she got too bitey so he had to stake her and now she's a tattoo of a naked lady on his forearm just like Petunia in The Adventures of Pete & Pete.

Then the hybrid dude arrived and did his best to avoid Connor's various booby traps, which mostly involved jars full of nails and werewolf venom.

Haha, sorry hybrid dude! I DID love the nod to Death Becomes Her though. (There would also be a neck-snapping later on, but no skin spray-painting, sadly.)

At this point Elena had been hearing too many explosions from across the street and a newly roused Damon begged her to not go get involved. But she made it clear she was on the war path, so he basically said, "Aight, just make sure to murder him while being careful about it." Good advice, in my opinion. So then she ran inside and started pleading with Connor.

His main piece of leverage was that he had Jeremy at gunpoint and was VERY shouty about how if anybody moved, including Stefan who was creeping behind the bar, he'd shoot "the boy." But Elena's main piece of leverage was the fact that Connor still had no idea that she was a vampire. Advantage Elena!

Elena tackled Connor. Jeremy accidentally got shot (again). Stefan pushed him out of the way from a booby trap.

After a raised-stake tussle with Connor, Stefan scooped him up and disappeared, leaving a baffled Elena to tend to her brother's gunshot wound.

At this point Jeremy admitted that his bond to Connor was more interesting than she knew.

(#neckporn) So yeah, Jeremy explained that he could see Connor's tattoo, which meant he seemed to be a candidate for a certain mythological calling should there ever be an opening in the near future.

Yup, it looked like the Gilbert sibs were following adversarial trajectories!

Meanwhile in the Underground Railroad, Stefan was leading Connor away like an angry school principal. But because life isn't easy, they immediately ran into Damon, who'd been relegated to the shadows and had climbed through a septic tank in order to intercept them.

Damon made it pretty clear he was about to murder Connor once and for all. Again, this was a good opportunity for Stefan to go, "Actually don't. Klaus needs him alive for a very important mythological reason that will affect all of us." You know, without giving too many details Stefan could've averted this conflict. Instead Stefan RELEASED CONNOR SO THAT HE COULD FIST FIGHT HIS OWN BROTHER. Good priorities. Good decision making.

Damon eventually got the upper hand. Or at least he inserted his upper hand into Stefan's upper ventricles. It was a good truth-extraction method!

Stefan finally spilled his secret: Connor was the key to turning Elena back into a human being.

Damon was shocked that a cure existed, sure, but he was also probably pretty shocked at just how much Stefan had messed up their entire day by keeping this secret to himself. Again, I can't emphasize enough what a blunder this creative decision was from a storytelling standpoint. Imagine the conflict if Damon KNEW the whole time that Connor could lead to a cure, and then had to struggle with whether he wanted Connor dead or not (and by extension struggle with whether he wanted Elena to be human or vampire). THAT would've held far more dramatic tension than Stefan keeping a secret.

Meanwhile Elena intercepted Connor in the cave system and they had a fatal showdown:

And then she killed him! Which was a nice bit of irony in that Elena didn't know Connor could've provided the key to turning her back into a human. But I'm telling you, wouldn't the pay-off have been far more interesting if she KNEW full well that he was the key, but her blood lust got the better of her, she lost control, and killed him anyway? It would've been much more in keeping with the theme of Elena struggling to maintain self-control AND it still would've provided the nasty twist this episode was aiming for. Not only did she kill someone, she killed the exact person who could've given her humanity back. I don't know. Look, what's done is done. No more secret-based conflicts, please writers?

But I have to say I will really miss Connor. He was definitely one of the best badasses this show has ever had, not to mention a superb introduction to the mythological Five. This show will always have trouble topping the Originals as far as powerful villains go, but the Five have restored the Hunters' good names as being formidable opponents. Sad to see him go!

After seven straight hours, Bonnie finally came out of her drug-fueled magic trance:

At this point the professor pep-talked Bonnie into chilling out about her angry ancestors and to just, you know, do magic. Knowing where her specialities lie, he even busted out an unlit candle for her to go to town on. Obviously she was unable to light it, but she DID manage to light the DOZENS of candles surrounding them.

It was supposed to be an awe-inspiring reveal, but it was hard to look past the fact that Bonnie had lit every candle in the room BY ACCIDENT. That's some Season 1 Bonnie stuff right there! I bet after this scene the professor went outside and his Camry was on fire.

So then the boys, having reconciled over Stefan's justifications for ruining everything (seriously, Connor's death only proved how foolhardy the entire exercise was), found Elena awkwardly digging a grave in the woods by herself while a Cat Power song played and a blood goatee dried right on her face.

What followed was this emotional speech where Elena was pissed at Stefan for lying (I agreed!) but also she was pissed at Damon for having encouraged her to kill the man who'd just shot her brother and staked her in the torso. Because ta-da! Elena had finally murdered someone! Oh, get over it, Elena. The not-murdering-anybody thing only applied to regular folks. Not mythological hunters. He was fair game. If we're including supernatural creatures, then YOU WERE NO STRANGER TO MURDER IN THE FIRST PLACE. So yeah, it was hard to sympathize with Elena here, especially if she was too sloppy to even WIPE HER DAMN FACE. Get it together, babygirl! I want Vampire Elena to work just as badly as the next fan, but you gotta represent yourself better!

So just to follow up on the Caroline vs. Hayley non-rivalry, Caroline got mad because Hayley was mourning her dead friend by hugging Tyler.

It's like, get over it, Hayley! It's just DEATH. Maybe don't make friends with hybrids? They are basically the Putties to Klaus' Lord Zedd. Punch them in their Z-buttons and they're done! Anyway, at this point Tyler finally explained what was up with his friendship with Hayley: He WANTED Klaus to think he'd cheated on Caroline, but the truth was, Tyler and Hayley were organizing an underground railroad (basically) for sired hybrids and Klaus would be super mad if he found out. Caroline seemed to accept this answer, so that was good.

Oh, and because everyone's dying to know what happened to April: She had her memory wiped, tried to hang out with a couple of buff bus boys, got rejected, and then went home alone.

But first Jeremy gave her his vervain bracelet (which hadn't helped him the previous time he'd been compelled, but whatever) and the best part was he couldn't just give it to her, he had to pretend he'd picked it up off the pavement?

When she expressed concern about wearing this hepatitis string, Matt told her he liked it and she immediately decided to keep it because biceps.

As for Jeremy, his day was about to take a turn for the weird:

Nevermind the fact that Jeremy's ring is hilariously ill-fitting. Apparently the Brotherhood of the Five works a lot like the slayers from Buffy: When one dies, another is activated! Looked like Jeremy just got a promotion!

Back at the Salvatore Joint, Damon took a break from reading Stefan's diary (LOL) to ask whether he actually wanted Elena to be human again. His answer? YES.

Damon went on the record as being fine with Elena either way, and Stefan deserves credit for being so chill about this. He honestly has no choice at this point. These brother just have to accept that they are destined to fall in love with the same ladies, and whoever's got the honor of being with her owes it to the other to be a good sport about it. In my opinion. (I've mentioned that die-hard shipping is ridiculous, right? It's ridiculous. Team Everybody's Single.)

This episode's stinger was a big, bloody tease. Elena was writing in her diary when blood suddenly started dripping right onto her emo prose! In typical Elena fashion, she never once looked overhead for the blood's source. Instead, she just followed more blood splotches until she found quite a mess in the bathroom she shared with Jeremy:

Yikes! It's probably hard enough for a teenager to clean a bathroom without parents or a cleaning lady, but just imagine a vampire teen! I'm sure this is probably a common sight for most vampire teens.

Someone had even guilt-shamed Elena by writing "killer" on her mirror! Very rude. But! It was all just a fantasy.

So, moral of the story was, if you're going to kill a mythological killer of supernatural creatures, be prepared to hallucinate blood all over your bathroom. It's a helpful moral that more people should learn.

Despite being hecka frustrated with all the Stefan stuff, I thought this was an action-packed, fun episode. Good character work (well, Caroline was having an off day), fun violence. I even liked the Bonnie stuff! Oh and look who was in the preview for next week's episode: KATHERINE.

BYE NOW.


QUESTIONS:

... Will you miss Connor?

... Was Stefan and Klaus' plan a very good plan?

... Are you worried about Jeremy's new calling?

... Do you wear jewelry or accessories found on the ground?

Price, you're awesome! That "Mr. Clean" image made me laugh so hard, and your photo recaps never fail to entertain.



I never thought I'd be excited about a Jeremy plot line, but I can't wait to see what happens!



Also, we need more Klaroline!!

-Won't miss Connor

-Klaus's plaon was good - including Stefan, though, may not have been his brightest move.

-Excited for a new storyline for Jeremy!

-Not jewelry from the ground, but I wore a necklace that I found at the bottom of a pool for years.

Is it Friday yet? Because I can't wait to see Katharine again! I think that the show should just make her the lead and dispose of Elena because she's so annoying!

I really just missed Rebekah this episode. The whole secret keeping ordeal was so tiring and annoying though Bad Ass/Confident Elena felt like a breath of fresh air (thought it lasted no where near long enough). I love it when she gets to do what SHE wants and what she wants isn't an incredibly dumb idea aka the trip to the mountains where one human is supposed to defeat Klaus to rescue Ripper Stefan. But yeah, Rebekah get undaggered bby. I hope she doesn't die this season (or ever).

Im still a huge stefan fan, and I like how theyre still keeping his dark side there a bit .. it would be interesting to see Stefan and Elena overcome everything that its in there way as of nowl. Id love to see them both go on to different relationships and other stuff and finally end up back to each other at the end:) your point about damon and the cure is interesting too,

A general observation...so, we are to presume that Jeremy comes from Hunter stock, correct? And this isn't like Buffy so there presumably is a genetic connection? Okay, so that leads to my question...while I know and we all know that Jeremy and Elena are not actually siblings, they are cousins, through their respective fathers...who are Gilberts and the Gilberts are presumably the line the hunter mentality come from, don't we think? I just wonder if part of Elena's problem is associated with that, beside the doppleganger issues, she is genetically predisposed as the elder of this generation of Gilberts to have been the Five representative and part of her body is rejecting accepting the vampire stuff because of that...anyway...



1. Yes, I will miss Connor, I suspected his death though (and that it is permanent) based on an interview where he was talking about stuff he had done in the past tense.



2. Nope, horrible plan, and might I say...totally sexist...



3. Not really...I think there needs to be that prescense in Mystic Falls (even if it is just the more laid back version of Alaric) where there is someone protecting the humans of the town from the vampires and supernatural, and, technically, protecting the vampires from themselves and exposure.



4. No, but I do have this bracelet I wear on gold days that I have no idea where I got it from.

Stefan has been keeping secrets from Elena since the very beginning. Being a lying self-righteous douchebag is one of his defining characteristics. I really don't see how his collusion with Klaus was any different from when he lied to Elena about being a vampire, or lied about her looking just like Katherine or lied about....I could go on. The only difference is this time Elena did not forgive him in two seconds. She finally grew a pair and told him off for being deceptive. This is obviously part of the unraveling of Stelena: they can't even be honest with each other. They have to resort to lame-ass voice-overs at the beginning and end of the episodes instead. :)

(Vampire jewelry snatching is totally a thing this season.) < LOL 1.

When she expressed concern about wearing this hepatitis string, Matt told her he liked it and she immediately decided to keep it because biceps. < LOL 2



So, basically, I laughed a lot during your review. Best ever.



1. Yes, these four episodes he was featured in were so good, I think that next week's might lack some badass stuff... OH NO WAIT, WE HAVE KATHERINE. So that's ok, if Katherine is not just an hallucination, then I won't miss Connor, but if she is, then I will. See?



2. Yes. For storyline climax purposes only. Aside the fact that completely lacked sense (I mean, ok, Damon and Elena couldn't know because, after all, they're only interested in achieving it). But... if you think, without it, all this drama wouldn't have happened. So i liked it.



3. No, tbh. The show won't kill Jeremy. They need Steven R. McQueen's neck to make the ratings grow, I mean... CW knows that!! No, just kidding. Anyway, I'm not worried, Jeremy is one of my favorite characters, and I fear nothing about him. He can always survive. Can't he?



4. "Hey April, I thought this would look good on you" would've been far better. No, I don't wear stuff found in the ground. Unless it's super cool.

One more thing: The save the hybrid(whatever his name was) routine seemed kinda forced but that was only to show us they already started trying to break the sire bond with him right?



guess they should improve their lectures tho

"Hepatitis string" *falls on floor in near hysterics*



This was a pretty solid, fun, action packed, wth(?) but okayyy, things that make you go hmmm, I can dig it, type of episode.



- I actually will! he was growing on me and by this episode coincidentally enough (I ALWAYS seem to like characters like that the best in their last episode! I should have known he'd be dead by the end because I was like...I'm feeling Connor right now!). It was his best episode. I loved his confusion over what he is and what it means. I finally felt where he was coming from. I also was kinda looking forward to somebody mentoring Jeremy because damn that boy needs somebody!! But Connor...I felt like there was more story to be told through the guy. And how freakin rough was it that they killed him in the Underground Railroad?!! Was that intentional? Was I reading too much into that? But how awesome was it that they admitted that there was an Underground Railroad?!! Kudos TVD, You won't be recognized at the NAACP Image awards anytime soon, but this is progress. I guess.



- No. It was completely nonsensical. Like, my dear sweet, adorable Klefan. I loves you boys but no. Just, no. For all the secret things mentioned in this kickass review. Great moments between my Salvatore bros though.



- NO! I'm excited!! Jeremy is just becoming cooler in a very understated way and I like that. We've been hearing about him being this destined vampire hunter but nothing ever came of it, not really, but this works. I too love his blase response to all things supernatural now. He's like.."oh so I'm getting kidnapped again? aight." Seems promising. Plus the emo art dude has some fresh invisible ink. Fitting.



- Who hasn't happened across a particularly appealing piece of jewelry and said to oneself "Ohh I shall call you bracelet and you shall be my bracelet for always!" No? Just me? Liars. Yeah, no that was kinda twisted. Plus, April has pretty much become the dumb human. I don't mean dumb as in oblivious, but dumb as in writing a L and a R on the bottoms of her shoes to make sure she doesn't put them on the wrong feet type of dumb. She was taken hostage by some random dude in the middle of town and she had not much of a reaction at all. the entire time dude was ranting about vampires and werewolves and the two fellow teenagers who were being unusually calm were completely unfazed by his ramblings and at times spoke just as (not so) cryptically about these alleged supernaturals too. And lets not even discuss her in the stock room with Matt. April: He said vampires are real! OMG vampires are real!" Matt: "Vampires are not real. Dude is cray-cray. There is no such thing" *shoves a stake into his back pocket* April: Are you sure because he sounds pretty convincing?" Matt: Nope, just a figment of his imagination" *tosses random blood bags aside * April: Whew, that's a relief then. Matt: Absolutely. *scratches at puncture wounds in his neck* I mean damn girl, I know some people lack in the observant department but Stevie Wonder could have seen that some crazy ish was going down! So April, I want to like you, I appreciate that you're meant to be the naive and sweet human, but she can be that way without coming across as a complete idiot.



-Bonnie and Prof. Sexy. I agree with the Bonnie bit in this review. She really is kind of too mature for the people she's around so she will always come across as a colossal bore, and I always seem to like her best when she's involved with a guy. Which sucks. As a feminist...or I don't know, just a female, I dislike myself for ever having to feel that way about Bonnie. Speaking of mentors...I'd like this guy to stick around and actually be that for her. No secret that Bonnie since the beginning, since Grams' death needed a mentor and guidance and she's been lacking that the entire time. But the Prof. dude is not only hella shady but he's connected to Bonnie which means he'll be dead in no time. But heyyy Katherine is coming back! I was never so happy to see a face until I realized that I have been seeing the exact same face since the season started, which makes me want to give Nina Dobrev kudos for playing such different characters so brilliantly that I can actively love one while sometimes loathing the other.



-Oh and Elena. So she killed Connor. Big whoop. I just can't feel all these things they want me to feel because she's technically killed before. This was her first human, and it was her first kill as a vampire, but do supernatural not count? Like they're alive and human enough to date but not to count when you stake them? Sure Elena. This is why Jeremy is quickly becoming the most badass Gilbert. Jer decapitated a hybrid on his front porch to protect his sister, rolled his eyes and expressed his annoyance about being sick of all this superntural crap, washed his hands, put on his baby tee, and strutted to The Grill to work a triple shift. BAMF.

All your talk of Katherine and Elena and Nina Dobrev has given me a brilliant idea. We need a version of the Emmys that corrects the mistakes of seasons past. This will allow us to give Nina Dobrev an award for her season 2 doppleganger work. This sounds right up Cory Barker's alley, obviously with input from Price. A quick google search tells me that both "The Hindsight Awards" and "The Hineys" have been used by random publications, but mostly to correct the egregious errors in the Oscars rather than the Emmys.

This episode was good, but it was completely ruined by Stefan and Elena. I agree with you, Price, on the point that Stefan could've avoided so much grief if he'd just told Damon the truth. I never understood his or Klaus' logic about keeping the cure a secret. It's not like Damon knowing about the cure would ruin Elena's chance at humanity.

Also Elena. Wow. I don't know what the writers were thinking. I know Elena's guilt is natural, but it's like she doesn't think anyone can understand what she's going through. Did the writers think we as the audience wanted to see all the ANNOYING traits of human Elena emphasized such as blaming everyone for all her worries. I don't get why she cared so much about killing Connor, especially when he was about to kill Jeremy.

I thought Elena would be more fun as a vampire but she is even more unbearable. Please send her into a coffin for the rest of the season and bring Katharine back please...



Jeremy = Neckporn... Yep, definitely.... And with all the vampires around... That's a big target...

Loved the recap...Totally agree that I was thinking Jeremy totally wouldn't have died if Connor had killed him because I'm guessing that The Five count as mythical creatures.



I do have to disagree that Caroline wasn't out of character think about the girl she compelled to stay away from Matt when she first turned or the girl she compelled to leave the party when she wanted Tyler she has always had a huge jealous streak and she is for sure snarky and fierce when she wants to be. Not sure where everyone got this idea of St. Caroline from. Sorry just had to say it so moving on to the questions.



-I really will not miss Connor, he really seemed like he might actually kill one of my favorite Vamps at any minute.



-Their plan was lousy, but on a side note with the lies Vampires don't trust people as a rule I think because they've lived long enough to be screwed over by everybody they trusted especially these two. However they should also know 100's of years later that lies always come back to Bite you.



-I think this will be a hard calling for Jeremy since most of his friends are Vampires. i don't know how he will deal with this. Could make for some interesting Drama.



-I always get my best jewelry from the ground. It's even better if hunky guys tell me it looks good.

Secret keeping really is a lazy and irritating plot device and it is really overused both on TV and in movies. I can't count how many times I have found myself wanting to yell at various screens, "Just tell them the truth and this will all be over!! You are only making things worse!!!"

But I think that the writers are using this to create a wedge between Stefan and Elena. Even when she finds out the truth about why he kept this from her, and that he was trying to help and protect her, in the end it just might add up to a lack of trust between them. Because he didn't confide in her she may have killed her chance to be human again. It took Damon over a century to forgive Stefan for his vampirism. And Stefan doesn't seem to have any faith that she can get through this and come out stronger on the other side the way Caroline did. She really needs someone to push her and believe in her, not coddle her, right now. But maybe it is himself he doesn't trust. Truth is, Stefan and vampire Elena are just not very compatible. He is a vampire that can't be around human blood and she is a vampire who can't survive without drinking from the vein. Even when she was human she was more like Damon than she wanted to admit to herself and going to Damon with her blood issues was not the first time she confided in Damon over Stefan. Stefan definitely has reasons not to trust her as well. As much as she chose him before her transition, she never was completely honest with him about her relationship with Damon, or herself for that matter. And she is still keeping secrets from him. I think her feelings for Damon won't be a secret for very long.

As far as her guilt about killing Conner. That didn't make much sense to me. I can't think of a clearer case of self-defense and Conner is in no way an innocent. He stabbed April nearly to death just to lure out the vampires. He tried to kill Elena's brother and everyone she loves. And he stabbed her right before she broke his neck. I can understand why she might be a little shell-shocked at the realization that she actually killed someone. But guilty? Any human would have done the same and rightly so.

so few episodes back Klaus was so worried to save every one of his hybrids that he changed his plans... now he's knowingly sending one to a certain death.... why not send a "simple" vampire to defuse the traps??

then we have Bonnie... which so unwary simply trusts a stranger ...and after discovering that she was "absent" for 7 hours she just keeps smiling and lights candles?? is a teacher that attends frat parties...shouldn't she be a bit worried? she trusted the martin witches as well...and didn't really end up well ...doesn't she learn? at the end of s3 she said she doesn't want to be pushed around anymore... and there she goes to be pushed again...

then Tyler... so ok...he didn't cheated on Caroline in the mountains.... but the fact that he didn't trusted her to tell her the truth is just fine?? so he loves her but doesn't really confide in her... nice....

and now Jeremy is one of the five...so i suppose that now his ring is rendered to useless...so he could give that to Matt .... they could make a good team...

I'm curious about this "cure", but mostly I wonder why, when everyone heard about the supposed cure for vampirism, that they just automatically assumed there's only one vampire that could be saved, and it should be Elena.



Oh well, then again, if the cure could cure all vampires, then this show would end pretty soon, which would suck (no puns intended).

Seriously, I think Damon deserves the cure as much as Elena. He never wanted to be a vampire. He has embraced it because he had to. Same with Caroline, although I love her as a vampire so much!

I actually think that's going to happen as a sort of irony type thing. I believe Damon is going to become human,and then Elena will have to chose between the brothers again with the added choice of being Vampire or Human.

To be fair, Caroline has shown a lot of jealousy issues in the past, and since Tyler didn't tell her about Hayley, it makes sense those issues would resurface.

Price, you are totally right about the secret keeping, your suggestions would have worked very well.

Also, I don't think killing someone supernatural who is trying to kill you and all those you love can really be considered murder.

I did think all the stories were a bit shallow this week, too many separate characters. Could have done without Anna and Bonnie. Although I did actually like Bonnie in this episode, I look forward to seeing how she goes on this line.

Also, did anyone else get the feeling that maybe Damon is interested in the idea of a cure for another reason- like himself.

It's obvious JP & KW are straddling the fence on the Love Triangle. After all their Spoilers before season 4 started, nothing took place with Elena as far as HotVampSex, which we were falsely led to think this would happen. I'm pretty sure it was to be with either Damon or Stefan but because of the 'Ship Wars', it was omitted from this episode.



I'm a hardcore Damon Lover and ship Delena as well. I have to admit, I'm a bit tired of Elena behaving like an immature little girl when it comes to making a choice between the brothers & as a new Vampire. It's obvious there's still something between her & Damon although she chose Stefan in 03x22 while feeling overly emotional breaking Damon's heart again! Damon definitely Loves her Unconditional because he always puts up with her BS, he's in acceptance of her no matter what she does to him and vice versa for her yet she stays in DENIAL about her true feelings.



As much as I love TVD, I feel chance of survival are slim if JP & KW doesn't get it together and stop with all the teasing of the Delena/Stelana fan base but oh well, that's just my humble opinion!

To be honest I'm really not surprised that Elena just accepted Stefan's reasons for vervain staking Damon coz 1 she's basically an idiot most of the time and 2 she's so in love with Stefan that she doesn't really think to question him about things like that.

A note on doppelgangers - does each one get worse...



Elena - Meh about a 4

Katherine - Pretty Cool, lets go with a 7,

Tatia - Awesome enough that Klaus and Elijah were in love with her - that's pretty awesome - I'm going to go with a 10



Lets say Elena gets cured and births a child, Jump forward 500 years and there is a new Doppelganger - Still looks like an 9, but personality wise she's a 1 (aka, Bonnie)

What was the professor up to while he had Bonnie hypnotised? She was basically asleep for 7 Hours (going to be hard for her to reset her body clock after that) Surely he wasn't just sitting there watching her - it's boring enough when we have to watch her pretend to be interesting.



He's going to be seriously suicidal if they keep this up.

haha, i asked the same question during watching this scene. i just can't imagine sitting on the same place for 7 hours, looking at the sleeping person and doing nothing else. didn't bonnie think it was a little creepy when he told her that? i mean, if a man told me he had been watching me sleeping FOR 7 HOURS, i would be supercreeped. but it's bonnie, so...

Serious question-- So when humans drink vampire blood, they get a weird connection with them that manifests in dirty dreams, right? A la Elena and Damon... Or am I confusing True Blood and TVD mythologies now? B/c if not, and Jeremy drank his sister's vampire blood.... ewwwwwww so gross.

I wonder if Elena's blood hallucination is her guilty conscience freaking out as it leads her down the path of turning off her humanity and killing erebody!!! I can only hope so!

So what's up with Bonnie? If her ancestors really are going to ef up Grams if she does magic, why is she even trying to get past her mental block? She has a very legit reason to NOT do magic! If she's trying to get her magic back and she knows Grams is at stake, she's a terrible terrible person.

I think the way Elena dreamed about Damon was that the dream was put their by a retconned crow. I don't think the vampire blood drinking has side effects on this show. For one thing, it happens all the time. For another, considering what Meredith was doing with Damon's blood, that would be weird.

Lol tell them how you really feel!



I agree to a certain extent. I am all for "dont confront the girl blame the dude" in these type of situations but the truth is Hayley is being disrespectful. I too cant stand people who cause dram with their blatantly arrogant actions then turn around and pretend like they're above it. Fork outta here with that nonesense! You aint above ish that is why your trying to push up on another girl's dude.



Also I am so over people judging Caroline when she has a teen moment but the very same people get on Bonnie for being overly mature and judging. So what is the standard protocol for teen angst and frustration? Is it to play stupid but really indulge in manipulation tactics like Elena? Please. I love Caroline good bad or ugly bc she is true to herself and is genuine in emotion. She felt threatened. And while I agree she should have went to Tyler first I can understand why Hayley's stank behind prancing around the house would get her upset.

I see a trend forming. Hayley has easily the new Elena. She can do no wrong simply because she is the "hot girl" from a cancelled favorite show.



Over it already.

Price wrote this in the recap:



"Tyler finally explained what was up with his friendship with Hayley: He WANTED Klaus to think he'd cheated on Caroline, but the truth was, Tyler and Hayley were organizing an underground railroad (basically) for sired hybrids and Klaus would be super mad if he found out. Caroline seemed to accept this answer, so that was good."

Why does this show seem to put every storyline at lightning speed except Elena's character development? I am not looking forward to next weeks episode if it's going to be all about Elena's guilt causing hallucinations. I know we're only 5 episodes in but look at what's already happened - 2 big bads have been wiped out, Klaus and Tyler are separated and both alive, Rebekka is daggered yet again, Tyler is trying to free all of the hybrids, there's an ancient vampire slayer organization, etc, and Elena is just crying and feeling ashamed. If they continue to drag this out, I take back my previous comments about being pro vampire Elena - they shouldn't bother. But I am still hoping for her to become a badass..

Klaus is such a whiner I can't help but not find him scary; I find him douchey, but not scary. I know I should since he's a fucking Original, but he's such a wuss. Weeping over being such a forever alone loser, not having any friends, just having underlings that are forced to hang out with him, and then angsting over his sad life. Him falling over himself over Caroline is just the pathetic cherry on the loser sundae that is his existence tbh.







The only time I actually enjoyed his presence was when he was throwing random shit at Elena's house...



I hate the woe-is-me-my-daddy-didn't-love-enough-and-my-mommy-wants-kill-me schtick the writers have going for him.



He's had one thousand years to get over that shit. Fuck. It needs to stop.



I hate that all these guys have to have hearts of fucking gold and these super sob story backgrounds while Caroline and Bonnie have gone through hell and are treated like, "well, Caroline is simply toooo good at being a vampire. it's easy for her" (which, yeah, having your mother initially hate you and your father torture is totes easy peasy) and generally villainised by the majority of fandom (Bonnie deserves so much better than these dickwads but whatev).



And Rebekah. Who's generally just relegated to spending time in a box whenever the writers feel like she may be becoming too sympathetic a character.



IT NEEDS TO STOP. And I won't lick the ground the writers walk on just because I once really enjoyed their writing. There are major flaws in the writing and I am side-eyeing myself because I still watch this.



I guess I like some of the characters too much to just stop looking at them even though it's inevitable they'll eventually ruin them all just like they did with some of the other characters, Having said that, the cast is flawless and I feel bad for them for having to portray something they don't even enjoy anymore like they hinted in some of the interviews lol.

Suddenly you have me wondering if this was a sexist enchantment. For 900 years, were little girls asking their mommies why they never got hunter training and if they would ever have an invisible tattoo? Sure, the original five were dudes, but was it codified into the spell such that it would always be that way?

I'm not so much asking because I'm upset about a witch being complicit in gender discrimination in the year 1100 or whatever, so much as because I dig chicks with tattoos, and a little bit of hope inside me was extinguished when I read your comment..

Ok I'm getting a distinctly Buffy vibe for this season which is odd considering Julie Plec said she didn't wanna do the whole Bonnie gone evil thing because she didn't wanna copy Willow's character arc, but lets recap here, we have April who is like the little sister character outta no where which as you have pointed out Price is like Dawn, now we have the hunters which again the whole potential thing where one dies and another springs up, and Prof. Shane seems like an evil version of Giles.

As for Caroline in this episode I think we should give her a break we know from when she first turned and her entire time as a human she is known for her jealousy.

I am a little disappointed that Tyler didn't actually cheat (though I'm hoping the crap story about the "hybrid underground" is just that, CRAP) I want Caroline to have an excuse to dump him so we can get some Klaus and Caroline time.

I still hate Elena's character she is so epically annoying, I mean come on I get it I felt bad for her at first she is a death magnet but so is everyone else in this town. Her as a vampire is driving me crazy the whining crap is getting old fast. I was so excited hoping her character would become interesting and awesome like Caroline's did once she became a vampire but I have so far been greatly disappointed.

oh how i love these recaps. lol.

i liked this episode...but i really think it coulda been a LOT better & i totally agree with price about the way too much lying deal. &what gives with them making elena all sad about killing connor...last week i was all for her feeling remorse for feeding on innocent people but connor was trying to kill her and everyone she cares about.... after her saying for two seasons that she wanted to kill klaus because of how much of a threat he was to her and her family/friends...it seemed really...dumb. after reading price's take on this ep i really wish that stefan woulda been up front with at least elena about why connor needed to live....but i would still want her kill him anyway on accident..(i did absolutely love when she snapped his neck tho....bad..ass..)...it woulda made her freak out way more believeable...she wouldnt have been sad about conner as a person, i woulda been more of her killing her own self...metaphorically. which is basically how they played it in the show....but jus that she doesnt know. &im sure she'll find out soon enough, but still...this episode coulda used that bit of a gut punch i think. the tyler/hayley/caroline thing bugged me (tho i did love bitchy caroline)...i had to watch the scene (the sire klaus phone call one) like 3 times jus to really understand what was going on. and omfg...hybrids are a fn joke. it doesnt really make sense that klaus would be so desperate to make so many of them when they are obviously so damn useless. i dooooo however like tylers secret little plan tho....i jus think the way he kept caroline so out of the loop was dumb on the writers part. also really loved the bromance business...not jus damon and stefan but jeremy and matt too....&i like matt a lot more this season. but the damon/stefan stuff tho...everything, not jus the last scene...LOVE IT. im not gonna get into every detail cause then ill be writing till the next episode airs but basically all of those scenes were my favs. wasnt so keen on the bonnie stuff as usual...but whatever....didnt hate it.

Wow your recap made me really hate the writing of this episode even more. There were a lot of moments I really loved, but yeah, the Stefan stuff was ridiculous. They could have developed such a better plot out of this and ended up in the same place, but I'm guessing part of this is to serve as the reason why Elena's mad at Stefan next week? Yeah whatever ok. Please no more of the pointless secrets. And yeah Caroline, she seemed a bit ooc. I felt like I was looking at season 1 Caroline overreacting when it came to Matt & Elena, not the more mature lady I've come to know and love.



1. YES. He was one of the biggest badasses that's been on the show in a while. (Klaus & co. go a bit soft on us sometimes)



2. No, Klefan was lacking in their planning skills. I'm thinking they just distract each other from being completely logical.



3. Yeah definitely. I'm worried about where they plan on going with it/if it's going to be ridiculous.

1. Not really, he was just a generic villain. Strange they killed him right when he started explaining why he's such a douche.



2. Klaus was right to keep the secret, the less people/vampires know that he want's his "human blood bag" back, the better. And Stefan probably thought that Damon would've tried to stop him. So, yeah, it was a good plan, till the moment when it started to suck :P



3. Mmm, not so sure. The worst case scenario - Klaus uses Jeremy as a human map and his sister as a blood donor. I don't see Jeremy becoming a hunter and threatening "our guys". Tho that's probably what the end (the whole giving the vervain to that girl and being tired from the daily brainwashing) was hinting at. And he would have to kill some vamps to reveal the whole map.

I liked what the secret-keeping gave us: more Daemon on Stefan action. For some reason it just feels like all the rules are off, when those two get in a fight.

I am trying to convince myself, that there is a good reason for Stefan not to tell (I mean it does make a lot of sense that Klaus doesn'T want others involved, mostly because he is the incarnation of keeping secrets from "loved ones") and Stefan might still be pissed at daemon for all his dirty time around elena. Maybe he just once wants to provide for his girlfriend alone. Be the hero. Also if Stefan were to say, Klaus has a secret, do my plan plz, daemon surely woudnt have played along, right?

And if daemon would be involved in finding the cure, Stefan might be scared of further loosing Elena.



I realize this doesnt sound like stefan nor did it come up in the show yet, but i like to imagine Stefan as just putting up a tough act. We don't really know what is going on in him. He jumps from nice guy to Ripper to nice guy... who does that without having underlying problems. Who knows how far under the surface they really are... right?
