Episode Recap

Not only are Elijah and Rebekah back from the dead, but the rest of Klaus' siblings are too. The final piece of the Original puzzle came into play this episode - it is Klaus' mother that came out of the coffin. She forgives Klaus for his transgressions and announces that she wants everybody to be a family again.

Caroline's dad dies with vampire blood in his body. Caroline is devastated and tries to convince her father that a life as a vampire is better than being dead. Caroline's father does not agree and would rather die than live as a vampire.

Bonnie tells Abby that she used to pretend she was dead to help ease the pain of her abandonment. Meanwhile, Stefan tells Elena he loves her, but so does Damon. Elena consoles Caroline, telling her that it was her father's choice to do what he did.
