So this episode just went off less than two hours ago and if you haven't seen it yet, I suggest you go and watch it. Let me just give you a heads up and say... SPOILER ALERT for anyone who hasn't watched it yet!!! I am just going to talk about the key points that really stood out to me during this episode.
- DAMON IS BACK!
We finally got a chance to see Damon and Stefan bond with their heartfelt brotherly love. REJOICE! There was all types of bromance throughout the show... Of course, the main person Damon wanted to see was Elena... who had her memories erased by Alaric. Damon is of course in shock when he finds out (Stefan told). He goes to Whitmore to visit Elena in hopes that when they see each other, her emotions will come flooding back. Damon shows up at her door, attempts to coax her into opening the door herself.... Then threatens to kick the door in... (That's love).. Elena is hesitant to see him in fears that it will change her current awful views of Damon,
considering she is happy now and makes an escape with her vampire jumping speed out of the window before they see each other.
- "I MISSED YOU MAN, BUT YOU MADE MY GIRL FORGET WHAT WE HAD."
"I MISSED YOU TOO, BUT I CAN'T CHANGE THAT BRO."
Alaric walks in his office. Damon, being charmingly sarcastic begins knocking back a few drinks, discussing how Alaric compelled her to forget their passionate love.
"Man it's glad to see you, but she was a wreck so... I made her forget you. She's happy now."
Then Damon's like,
"Well, I'm back so make her un-forget.... She can be happy with me. I'm that guy!"
During that moment, I honestly thought Damon was about to stab Alaric with something or have a temper tantrum, but he didn't. I'm proud.
- IT'S A WITCH DOCTOR AND SHE KNOWS ABOUT THE BLOOD.
Jo, the doctor/teacher and Alaric's possible honey, tells Elena that she knows that she's a vampire and also knows about Alaric. Elena finds out she's a witch. However, it seems as though Jo does not have a problem with it since Elena actually saved someone last week and Alaric was being selfless by "attempting" to compel her and protect her. She is head over heels for Alaric... She stalked him in this episode by the way, I'll get to that in a minute though.
- THE LIE AND THE HURT LOVER
Damon only tells Stefan that Bonnie sacrificed herself for him to get back to the other side... He asks Stefan to keep it a secret. Jeremy instantly drives to Whitmore to see Damon once he finds out he's alive. This news made him shower and leave the house...
("So fresh and so clean" plays in background.)
Damon lies and tells Jeremy that Bonnie found peace which is why she was not where he was. Jeremy tells him that he's been paying her phone bill for the past 6 months... He leaves, extremely bewildered and hurt. Damon ends up calling Bonnie's phone. He leaves her this precious, adorable message telling her thank you for giving him the chance to see Elena again and that he wanted to hear her voice (Yes...Bonnie's voice).
On another note, I think that this is kind of messed up. I feel like Damon could have found those witches who created that space that him and Bonnie were trapped in, in this episode, so that he could help Bonnie. Then again, he did just get back to reality.. So he wants to spend some lovey dovey time with Elena...
- THE VAMPIRE CROSSED THE ROAD TO GET TO THE OTHER VAMPIRES.... BUT THEN ONE BECAME HUMAN.
So Stefan ended up getting Enzo locked up in captivity by that one Chief hunter guy (Tripp) in Mystic Falls . We also see Ivy die at the beginning of the episode, by the way.
Elena shows up at her dorm because she decided to see Damon instead of avoiding him. She notices something isn't right, and finds out that Tripp actually has Damon. Her and Caroline go out to the area of where they are suppose to meet up with Stefan and Alaric after they saved both Enzo and Damon. During that time, Elena confesses to Caroline that she wants her memories back and that she wants to experience whatever feelings she had for Damon that was erased. Stefan and Alaric show up, they destroy new tires, so that Tripp can pull over and help them, considering their truck was in the center of the street.
(How many tires get destroyed on this show?) Tripp rolls up. Alaric tells Stefan to wait in the truck since Tripp knows who he is. Long story short, Tripp ends up crashing his truck in Mystic Falls. Alaric gets thrown on to the ground inside the border. Enzo and Damon are bleeding in the truck as their insides cave in because they are a creation from magic (Magic isn't allowed in Mystic Falls). Stefan saves Enzo and Damon, just before letting his own insides cave in. The doctor, Jo, followed Alaric there because she's an adorable witch stalker and she finds Alaric on the brink of death. She does not move him because of his caving insides. She attempts to actually save him by doing compressions on his heart. I think that Alaric dies as a vampire since he is in Mystic Falls, but because of Jo's skills... she revived him... AS A HUMAN THOUGH!!!
YEP... ALARIC IS HUMAN NOW!!!!
*the crowd screams* I am glad that he is human for so many reasons. For one, he wasn't himself when he became a vampire. He was possessed when Esther, Klaus's mom, when turned. In addition to that, he was miserable as a vampire. He wanted to be human more than anything.
SO YOU ALL KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS...
- ELENA WON'T KNOW HER TRUE FEELINGS FOR DAMON, UNLESS THEY FALL IN LOVE ALL OVER AGAIN OR KLAUS ROLLS INTO TOWN.
Elena's memories are gone forever, unless one of the Originals shows up... Of course, I doubt that they'd help Damon. Maybe Caroline can call a favor on Klaus. Or is there a possibility that Damon and Elena could fall in love all over again or can Damon trigger the love bug in her eyes and make her remember?
When Elena finds out Alaric is human, she doesn't think of it as being a big deal. She decides to just see Damon and whatever happens, happens.
- SHE'S HAPPY, BUT HIM.... NOT SO MUCH.
At the end of the episode we see Elena and Damon gazing at each other for the first time in 6 months.. and the show cuts off.
Caroline unfriends Stefan.... I honestly laughed at this part. I love Stefan and Caroline's relationship, but Stefan needs to make up his rudeness. I will say that I think Caroline should not have been so hard on him... I think the main reason she was so upset was because of her feelings for Stefan. She should have just let him be for a while. Everyone handles death differently. I also thought that Stefan and Caroline were going to kiss for a moment at the end. I am so glad that didn't happen.
Also can they please let Caroline live without liking someone? They make her into someone that ALWAYS needs some type of relationship... I mean, maybe that's just her character, but still..
Salvatore girl finds out Salvatore brothers/relatives are vamps.
I feel like she resembles Emily Bennett a bit. I actually thought she was related to Bonnie until we found out that she was Zach's daughter. I wonder how that interaction with Damon is going to go. Maybe she'll get turned into a vampire....or maybe there is a possibility that her mother was from the Bennett line. Her and Damon may get into some sort of fight.
Jeremy breaks down again..
I feel bad for little Gilbert. He should be happy. I know that he was truly in love with Bonnie, but I want him happy!! I hope Bonnie gets back to reality.
So do you guys think TEAM DELENA will happen? Do you think Damon is going to kill Elena's new guy friend? Are you happy that Alaric is human now?
Also, why do I feel like no one has written in a diary for like months? WHERE ARE THE DIARIES IN VAMPIRE DIARIES?
