Also someone clear something up for me please. Klaus killed his entire family a bazillion years ago and kept the bodies somewhere and told Elijah that he had just disposed of them at sea. And now Elijah broke his promise to Elena and went back on his word to Stefan to see his dead-a-bazillion-years-ago family's rotted carcasses.
Did I get that wrong somehow? Because as it is, it makes no sense to me. First of all why would Klaus even lie about having disposed of the bodies? What purpose could that serve? Also, what happens after Elijah gets his eyeful of all his precious skeletons? He's now got a mega pissed off hybrid brother who's mad Elijah turned on him in the first place. I must be missing something.
I'm thinking the other family members aren't dead -- just in a "dead-like" state. The way Elijah was when they staked him with the magic knife and stuck his body in the basement. Maybe he believes if he can find them, he can bring them back, which is why he needs Klaus to tell him where they are. And it would be goodfor future storylines -- whenever the writers run out of material, they can just have Elijah find one of his siblings, bring them back to "life", and a new villain appears on the horizon.
My question is: Elena and Jeremy are still minors, correct? So, shouldn't they still have a legal guardian? And I don't think it can be Alaric, because it takes a lot more than "Oh, you've been a great boyfriend-- so if I die, you can have the kids" sort of thing to establish guardianship. Social services should be stepping in, any day now...
